lassitude & ennui - new jewelry for L'Accessoires

Wait, two posts in one day? How can this be? Yes I've been a busy little ennui lately! lassitude & ennui is back at L'Accessoires, this time with a delicate mesh tiara. Available in gold, silver or black metal, with a variety of stones - 140L$ each or grab the fatpack for half-off. Permissions mod / copy and it's unrigged so yes, you can resize and reposition the tiara or heck, attach a whole bunch of them all over your pretty avatar. (No resize script included) As always, this is fully original work, designed and made from free-range pixels by yours truly. The tiara is available at L'Accessoires until January 15th, and will be in my main store in mid-february.

The blaze of the year

Or some kind of east Indian sari fabric
I do love poking through Jackal's vast backstock of shoes in the ruins of Lassitude and Ennui, even though she hides her eyes whenever she sees her old things. I found this pair (the Selene boots in Blaze) hidden quietly in the Mesh room. I know I wore them when they came out, but not in this lovely color… And it went so well with my outfit that I slid them right on. My outfit (fashionably Dead hair and Schadenfreude frock) are from Collabor88. Gorgeous, like the shoes! (SLURL to Lassitude & Ennui)

The flash shop near the UFO

Kicking it with the flamingos

You walk into the place and you know it's a dive.  There shouldn't be any problem here, not with the enormous lurking UFO and the pig with parted legs splayed like some…

"A princess," he says flatly.

"Yes. Give me a unicorn, same damned one for both shoulders. Make it purple and sparkly, like a pretty pretty princess."

He stares at you because you don't look it. Sure you're blond like a certain plastic doll, but you didn't do yourself up today, and there's a certain matter of the scars.  You never tell them where you got those. At least not on the first date.

"If you insist," he says, resignedly -- and perhaps because even though you're a pretty princess, there's something about you that makes him realize he'd best do what you ask, and pronto.

He's probably right.

And you get your unicorns.

(Nostalgia boots by Lassitude and Ennui, of course!)

Prudence boots

Prudence boots
The beautiful Miss Jackal Ennui somehow neglected to mention here in her blog that the Prudence Mesh Boots are back home from the Fantasy Fair. Come see them in all their delicate lace and pastel (and mesh) glory at Lassitude & Ennui. (You can also go spy on the color ad over here on Flickr.)

I see London, I see France...


...I see Jackal's new Lassitude & Ennui satellite shop on the Isle of Masks! I had no idea that Miss Siyu Suen was quietly making an awesome village (spitting image of an old European town) below her beautiful store, and when I stumbled upon it, I also found a perfect little Lassitude & Ennui tucked into a corner. 

 I'm not sure how I missed this, so perhaps there hasn't been a notice yet? At any rate, if you're a curious one like me, you can go peek at the beautiful sim (and Jackal's shop) riiiight here. (If you're in Illusions, glance out the windows. You'll see the new town below.)

lassitude & ennui for March Mesh Madness!

March Mesh Madness (or MMM12 if you'd rather not break your tongue) is an event running until march 15th, with 20 designers showing their mesh creations - everything from fashion and hair to furniture, landscaping and fantasy items. If you enjoy mesh, this is very much worth a visit!

At MMM12 I'm debuting these rigged mesh lace-up boots with flat heel:

Steampunk or just plain punk, you decide. The boots conform to standard sizing, and are mod / copy / no transfer. Of course, rigged mesh is not resizeable, but you can still tint / rename the boots. 280L$ per color, or 700L$ for the five color fatpack.

Get them at MMM12 or at the lassitude & ennui mainstore after march 15th.

P.S.: want some guy sizes too? let me know!

The sin of a beautiful shoe?

Boudoir Mules by Lassitude & Ennui

Jackal made some gorgeous mules for the festival of sin. In her words:

Way back, when SL was still in black & white and we had to haul prims through the snow, uphill, both ways, I made some simple pom-pom mules. It was a favorite style of mine and I'd been hoping to bring it back for a long time. And since it was a great fit the Festival of Sin, I finally remade those mules!

You can choose between mesh (including a foot) or not (just the toes). The festival runs until March 3rd, and you can visit the shoes here!

dev diary 3: wrapping it up!

Initially, I was hoping to have a weekly blog post on this project, but the last two week were such a mad rush to get this thing finished on time (and it was exploding servers & databases season at my day job, which really didn't help things) that I just couldn't fit it in. Onwards! (If you missed the beginning, here's part one and part two)

new at lassitude & ennui for Festival of Sin!

Way back, when SL was still in black & white and we had to haul prims through the snow, uphill, both ways, I made some simple pom-pom mules. It was a favorite style of mine and I'd been hoping to bring it back for a long time. And since it was a great fit the Festival of Sin, I finally remade those mules!

The Festival of Sin is a 2-weeks long event starting tomorrow, Feb 18th at 5pm SLT and running until March 3rd, where the creators show their creative interpretation of one of the seven deadly sins. See the teasers on the festival blog (NSFW, pixel nudity!)

new at lassitude & ennui - Flutter boots for Back to Black event

New boots from lassitude & ennui, for the CHIC event Back to Black - a mental health awareness event! Get these boots on the CHIC sim until Feb 29th, and at my main store afterwards. Event information here.

280L$ per color. The boots are rigged mesh and move with the ankle, but are not resizeable. This time I've used the standard sizing system, and of course an alpha layer is included, but please do try a demo as I can't guarantee it's going to fit everyone.

Dev diary 1 - groundwork

I love reading other people's WIP blogs, SL or not, seeing how stuff evolves over time and the processes involved. So I thought it might be fun to write a little post series myself, chronicling a lassitude & ennui project, and since I'm just getting started on a project with a deadline of mid february, the timing is perfect. More after the cut, if you're curious, or skip directly to part two or part three

new at lassitude & ennui for The Cafe Hunt

Time for some freebies! I'm participating in the Cafe Hunt, and this is my gift - a texture-change neck tie in two versions, one with roses and one with pearls. Permissions mod / copy / no trans, and I've included two sizes for your convenience. The textures are color-coordinated with the rest of the Ophelia series and the Flora boots and Doll boots - and YES IT COMES IN PINK AS WELL - only I was lazy and didn't put all colors on the poster. So there. Oh and it's all sculpt. No evil mesh.

Want this? Find the steaming coffee cup that has been very badly hidden in plain sight, in my main store. Hint: it's in the mesh section.

And here's the Cafe Hunt blog if you'd like to do the full hunt.

White and cream brocade

And holy @#$@, shadows are fixed

"Official browser updated," I thought to myself. "I think I'll try shadows and see if they're still broken on my MacBook Pro here." And lo, they were fixed. Not only that, but the way to change environment was so much better that I managed to make the lighting decent! It's been a long time, Second Life. Oh you frustrate me so. But it's all worth it to photo Jackal's new Selene mesh boots all purty (below). Go see these shoes, and eternally-autumnal Nouveau, (over here)

new at lassitude & ennui: Selene rigged mesh ankle boots

Looks like I'm late to my own party! So I released those boots earlier this week and then totally forgot about blogging them. How embarrassing.

I finally took the plunge and made some rigged mesh boots - again! Despite all the drawbacks of not being able to resize, and Qarl's mesh deformer looming on the horizont, these were just too much fun when rigged to pass it up. So! Victorian ankle boots, yadda yadda, but with more of a heel than I usually make. And with a row of cute little buttons. And they move with your ankle! I didn't expect this to make such a difference, but it really livens up poses. Enough text!
