About abathyr

Once upon a time I was a special ed teacher. When my heart fried, I became a fitness instructor and then a musician and then a graphic artist. And then came the internet, and my world both exploded and narrowed. I work at home now, on the web. I design for virtual worlds like second life and IMVU, and create and maintain websites and blogs for a handful of clients. And play happily with my dogs and the other critters who come my way.

Valerie, Formal Gowns in Satin

I’m so far behind in posting, but I’ve been busier than a whole hatful of elves! First, the last Genre round inspired a new gown with shimmering colors, Valerie, in a variety of satins and laces and with a very special set of Bento gloves included in the outfit bundle. All available on the Marketplace here.

There is an optional flexi overskirt for those who like to have a fuller skirt and more fluid movement. Looks great when dancing! Gown and gloves are materials enabled, best viewed with Advanced Lighting turned on. Demo is available, be sure to try before you buy!

Spider webs – Arachnea 3 Gothic Gown

Survived Halloween!  It’s always so much fun and I’m always glad when it’s over.  It seemed too hectic this year, I took on too much with hunts and events.

My favorite addition is a new Arachnea spider webby gown.

Miss Pearl Parker in the AGS Hunt

The Antique Grid Show Autumn Hunt begins today.   My hunt gift is a late nineteenth century style outfit – Miss Pearl Parker – with hat, blouse and skirt in Autumn greens. Check out this blogpost on the nostalgia a la mode blog. The lovely picture with the gorgeous light was taken at the 1920’s New York Project.

Welcome To New York

MissPearl-AutumnGreensThere is a path to follow from the front door, and the hint is “Silly Skeleman is wearing me as a hat!”

I’ve never been one to make it difficult for hunters, but if you don’t move far enough into the room you might miss the leaf. It’s a flat plane that is hard to see from a side view. You’ll see the skeleton, just move around in front of him.

15 Of The Most Beautiful Women Of 1900s Edwardian Era

The title of this list/article really should be 15 Of The Most Beautiful Actresses Of 1900s Edwardian Era.  Sad, but there were so many lovely faces from that era I guess they had to narrow the field.

Ethel Clayton was an American actress of the silent film era. Her screen debut came in 1909, in a short called Justified. She jockeyed her early film appearances with a burgeoning stage career. Her pretty brunette looks were reminiscent of the famous Gibson Girl drawings by Charles Dana Gibson. On the stage, she appeared mainly in musicals or musical reviews such as The Ziegfeld Follies of 1911.

Pirates!

The Skull n Bones Hunt is about to start, and for this event I made a versatile outfit for classic and mesh avatars – Brass Rose Pirate.  It includes a tricorn hat, jacket with Omega appliers, optional puffy sleeves and shoulders, pants with flat thigh boots in mesh, fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya and Original Slink sizes.  Also included is a pair of matching trousers w/ Omega applier so you can opt to wear your own boots instead.  My current favorite outfit is the jacket & leggings with black leather thigh high boots and eye patch.

The hunt starts on Sunday, to get ready to start pillaging.
