Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing May 21, 2010
If you suddenly find yourself among predators, it is recommended to adapt to their appearance and make a quick exit.

Hi there! Sorry for my long silence, but I have been experiencing quite a bit of SL fatigue recently and was totally unmotivated to take pictures, blog or even just log into SL. However, I felt a slight spark of inspiration tonight to take up the Dork’s Alphabet again. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss a large part of it, I decided to have a break from the strict alphabetic order and catch the ideas as they fly by. Just realised the unintended pun when looking at today’s card – teehee.
I would like to thank Further Monday for showing me the hilarious Ollipog store at the Fantasy Fair. It was very hard for me to decide which one to choose because I loved them all! In the end I went for their RFL item and this “Fly J’Accuzi”. So if you were ever looking to change into a “Blubird of Crappiness” with a cherry on your head, a tiny ghost lemur or a mandrake magic root (!!), this should be your first stop.
Further doesn’t only constantly find cool avatars, she also just founded the in-world group “Shapeshifters Union” and the accompanying Flickr group here. Yay, I have been yearning for such a group for ages! If you consider yourself a shapeshifter, please do join this group. There will also be regular events, for example get-togethers at a surprise sim with the challenge to dress according to the sim theme. Hope to see you there.

Don’t worry, be slimy! January 27, 2010
I have been carrying this snail set by “UchU* around for a while now, mainly because it proved to be quite a challenge to put together an outfit. Hair wasn’t a problem, as it was part of the package, and Nuuna Nitely‘s free “Pink Stripe” skin turned out to be perfect for the Snail Girl. But what to wear?! Even Fionna, the fashion genius with a huge knowledge of SL fashion and shops was totally stumped when I asked her where to find a beige-pinkish dress that would go with my snails. So I had to resort to randomly teleporting into stores where I already had bought nice clothes from and hope for the best. Surprisingly it took only two teleports to land at “Couverture” where I spotted this dress exactly in the colour scheme I was looking for. Yay!
To make things perfect, the top of the dress has this purple part giving the impression to connect it with the snail shell on my back. By the way, the dress can be worn with or without the puff sleeves
As already mentioned above, the snail set comes with snail hair (two versions with or without facelight) and two snail buddies. One of them circles around you and occasionally spits out little stars, whereas the other one happily sits on your head and minds its own business. The only drawback of this cute set is that it is non-modifiable, meaning I couldn’t stretch the hair to fit my head. Therefore I decided to try a new shape by “Silhouette“, which was an expo gift ages ago, and the hair was fitting well on this one.
Don’t worry, be slimy!

The early cat catches the butterfly January 22, 2010
One of today’s Fifty Linden Friday deals is this adorable “Kitty” dress from Artilleri. Its name was a clear sign from above to dress up my little white tiger avatar again with the aim to throw a big chunk of cuteness at you as a weekend starter. It took me a while to find the right hair because I wanted something cheeky and playful. I finally found this perfect style at ::69::. It looks so soft and almost real that everytime I look at it I feel the urge to touch it.
All dressed up, Kitty was more than ready for mischief and grabbed the animated butterfly net from my inventory before I could stop her. Poor monarch butterfly had quite a hard time trying to escape. Redd Columbia did a great job with this animation. At one point Kitty smashes the net very hard to the ground, determined to catch this pesky butterfly. It made me laugh everytime!
Grrr….that was close.
Have a nice weekend and don’t forget to let your inner dork out from time to time!
