Ren by Tableau Vivant

You still have just over a week to get to the second anniversary spectacular of The Men's Dept, and you'll need to make sure you do because OMG these skins. This is Ren by Tableau Vivant.

I can't get over these lips. 

It's currently only for sale in the three warmer tones for just 300l each but when you buy any of them, you get a gift of the ginger one on the left. 

Seriously, what are you waiting for. GO.

Berry's Dance in Second Life Challenge

Strawberry Singh is so demanding with her memes and her nosiness and her challenging us to do things we've never done before. I mean REALLY. Inspiring me to find a screencap thingy and make my first ever machinima. Pushy, pushy, pushy.

Credits for the music - "Miley Cyrus Vs Redfoo Vs Journey - Don't Stop Wrecking Ridiculous Ball (Djs From Mars Bootleg)"

  1. Which dance are you sharing in the image/video and where is it from? These are both dances from the Ministry of Motion - "Want You Bad" then "Happy Happy!" I like the second one the best because it's the dance I do when I really want to embarrass my kids. 
  2. Which is your favorite dance in Second Life? – There's 2 also from MiniMo. If you've known me for any length of time, then you'll know I'll bust out into either the Bootiepop or Baby Oh Yeah at any opportunity. Being in front of a live audience of hundreds never stops me either... hi, everyone still traumatised from Mr Virtual World 2011! 
  3. What are your favorite dance animation stores in Second Life? – Apart from Ministry of Motion; there's Humanoid, Akeyo and A&M Mocap.
  4. Are you a frequent dancer in Second Life? – Unf. Yes. I used to spend an obscene amount of money on dances, and I kept an antisocial alt just for clubbing so I could bliss out on something really meaty with a ridiculous BPM and not be interrupted. I'm also happy to accompany the ladies in my life to a ballroom. I used to work for one of the top gown makers in SL, Miamai - so I could write it off on tax as market research. 
  5. Are you a frequent dancer in the real world? – I am. But only when no one's watching.

From One A:S:S To Another

Photos Nikolaidis and Storm Torvalar of A:S:S - Another Stupid T-Shirt Shop, in case you were wondering - are having a moving sale; packing up errythin' and moving to a brand new sim after five years in the one spot. I was going to dress up in all A:S:S clothing for this post as I own pretty much all of it, but then I realised something.

Pho doesn't make pants. Like... I'm telling you, I scoured my inventory and it turned up nothing except some kilts. So you only get half an A:S:S. Plus an artfully placed graphic.

Here is where they are now. 

Here is where they will be next week. 

But go here now.

Berry's Black and White Meme

Because mine most beloved friend asked for it. And. I'm pretty much just black and white anyways.

Still working out my shape in this wonderful Sean skin by Tableau Vivant. Some days I think I have it right, then I step back and realise it's STILL not right. Hair is by Eater's Coma, eyes are Ikon, necklace is Earthstones. Fangs I grew m'self.

This entry is dedicated to the creator of the meme herself.  She'd know how heartfelt this is because I neverrrrrr do her damned memes!

2013 is being relegated to the coffin where it rightfully belongs. It's a new year. It's going to be bloody wonderful. I've seen over 200 of them, and I can taste it. Come with me, friends. Time to have fun. 

Quick credits - Skin, Nathan by Tableau Vivant because duh I don't think I'll ever be able to change it.

Jeans - Hotboy by Muschi. These are EXCELLENT like I have never seen better jeans in my whole life. If you want to see them blogged far less amateurly, you can check out siXX's take here.

Hair - Harley by Truth. Shoes - Purf. Necklace - Earthstones. 

Anticipation and Excitement  - All Me.

29.09.2013 Berry's Ween Meme

Did you go trick or treating as a child? Only twice that I can recall. Once as a wee one and once when I was way old enough to know better. (More on that later.) We just don't do Halloween in Australia, we'll be lucky to have maybe three door knocks on Ween night. I have dressed up for a few pub parties though.

What was the best Halloween costume you ever wore yourself? Oh god...  I can't remember the first one but knowing me I was probably Donatello. Oh yes. I wanted to be the least cool Ninja Turtle when I grew up.*

What is your most vivid memory about Halloween? The one time when I was about 17 and was staying over at a friend's house. I promised Mum no trick or treating but of course that's exactly what we did. We both went as corpses - well bedsheet ghost plus loads of black guyliner really, but we pretended to have made some effort - and walked around to all our enemies' houses, griefing them. We also walked around to all our friends houses and griefed them too but those ones we did with love

Don't worry, I got hit with karma pretty damn hard the next day. I got a second degree sunburn walking home at 8:30am. Yep... I truly am a vampire in real life. 

What is the scariest movie you have ever seen? Ahhh I know its not cool to admit fear at a modern horror movie, but the 1999 remake of House on Haunted Hill came very close to breaking me. I used to relish nightmare movies and would gleefully hunt them out laughing at the wusses. I saw that at three am at the end of a four movie marathon with my now-wife and I have never come closer to walking out of a theatre. Last year it was on television and I decided to watch it, surely it couldn't have been that bad. Five minutes in I went NOPE and cut it out of my life. 

Also, The Notebook. That shit was terrifying

Do you ever get nightmares after watching a scary movie? Oh hell no, I have enough things in my RL to give me nightmares. And my SL too, come to think of it. There's no wiggle room for movies to squeeze into my psyche. 

What will you be doing for Halloween this year, if anything, in SL and RL? RL I promised my kids we would finally carve a pumpkin this year. We haven't ever done it before. Not because I couldn't be bothered, but because pumpkins here look like this.  I tried it once, broke two knives and a filesaw. However, our local grocer has specially grown some 'Murican types just for Ween, and I have been begged to give it a go. 

In SL I have not yet made plans! One of the best things about our little world is that we all get to share in each other's holidays and celebrations, and I have been informed by loved ones that I have to attend parties or else. I'm dressing up as a Viking this year. So long hair, no shirt, bits of animal hanging off me. In other words, business as usual. 

Just blonde.

An Open Letter To Miley Cyrus

Dear Miley,



You are now a fully fledged Rock Star.

 I have never seen this many pearls clutched before, and certainly not by musicians who got by on on shock value alone once people stopped listening to their actual music. You've got a truly bangin' bod and you are only going to be 22 once, so whack as much fun into your life with that sledgehammer as you can fit.

It's your party, you can do what you want.

Love, Winter

...because in the year 2713, I'll still be around. Sure, I'll be wearing enough face spackle to regrout the Sistine Chapel; and I'll likely have grown so much more taller and emaciated that I won't dare stand still for more than 5 minutes in a strip club...


... but I will ALWAYS be the guy wearing the sharpest suit.

I've been drifting around in this outfit or a while (ever since the recent makeup fair, as you'll guess when you look closely)  frightening small children, furry animals and anyone with the faintest modicum of good taste. I know that in theory fuschia and orange are so very wrong together, but it totally pushes my buttons.

I refuse to accept liability for any eyes that may be gouged out upon viewing this post.

OH YEAH and Eid Mubarak to my friends! Hope I don't put you off your feasting. #YOSLO

Arcade Addendum

Just as a reminder... the June round of The Arcade is almost over.





It's because you can totally see that I didn't realise my tattoos hadn't rezzed until I uploaded them... and Eve gets snarlingly vicious a little unhappy when I wake her up to retake pics, isn't it?

Arcade items seen in this post are from Miamai, Fashionably Dead, Wasabi Pills, Half Deer, Emery, Paper Doll, Standby, Trompe Loeil, Schadenfreude, Clawtooth, Maxi Gossamer, Commoner and Gizza.
