::30:: SHARKNADO: But You Say He Just a Fin, and You Say He Just a Fin, Oh Babyyyyyyyyyyy


HAIR: +Spellbound+ - Jezebel // Monochromes 

SHADES: (Yummy) - Pool Side Shades


DRESS: coldLogic - dress - montgomery.ebony

KICKS: REIGN.- SADDLE PLATS- BLACK- Project Limited (July 2014- Round 2) 


PURSE: [tea.s] - Shark Bait Bag - Black 

EARRINGS: [tea.s] - Sharky Earrings - Black 

This post is inspired by some of most delightfully entertaining movies I have ever seen, Sharknado and its equally ridiculous sequel which premiered earlier this week, Sharknado 2: The Second One. The first installment hit the scene last summer and immediately won its way into my mermaid heart, as well as millions of other fans.  The original movie was an instant success, making headlines from millions tweeted comments shared by viewers which made Sharknado one of Twitter's top trending items. 

  And Sharknado 2, the sequel to the campy cult favorite was released earlier this week and it certainly delivered.  The fact that freak shark meteorological phenomena is totally impossible, mixed with an all star cast just someone merges into the perfect storm that is SHARKNADO! If you haven't seen it yet and you are in need of some genuine good laughs, then you're in for a treat.

              First of all, this post is long overdue. Real life has been pulling me into a ton of different directions so far this year, but it's all good. I just want to say a special thanks to all my SL homies, above all, myreaders and sponsors.  All the love and support during all the "shit just got real" stuff going on with me meant the world to me.

               Truth be told though, it's been nice kind of easing back into life in the good old SL of A.  The thing I missed most these last several months was spending time with my friends, especially my bestie, Daisy Chainsaw.
                 Speaking of whom, Daisy is not only my bff in Second Life, but one of my greatest friends in real life as well. She joined SL just a few weeks after I discovered it, thanks to my prodding, and we've basically been inseparable ever since.  We've evolved together, maturing from total and complete noobs who shopped at the free mall, to the mesh-to-the-max avis we are today. She is my quintessential retail therapy companion and constant muse. She's modeled and shopped and Photoshopped right along side me since I created this blog.  She's been a guest photographer on a great many of the posts, including this one even!  That being said, it is with great pleasure that I announce that Daisy is an official blogger for My So Called Second Life.  YAY!

     Every year it never fails, that for a week or two after Christmas, my budget is always really strapped.  Let's face it though, Christmas really is a pretty consumer driven holiday at this point. This time of year everything just tends to get so overly commercial here in the land of Capitalismville.  It seems like after Black Friday, everyone is constantly being assailed by advertisements for big sales events; and even Second Life is no exception.  In the spirit of being broke, this post highlights some really rad Christmas items that offer a great value.  Many of the featured items come with value adding, color changing HUDS, which will allow the wearer to be able to change the outfits up.  Who doesn't want to get more use out of the pieces we buy?  Some of the items showcased in this update are totally free!  This posting is all about finding little treasures to treat ourselves as we detox from the mania of the holidays.  

The ALICE PROJECT  hair worn in this post I made by combining parts from two different styles. I wore the primary hair from one style and added the bangs from a totally different style, making a totally new do.  I blogged the details of the Alice Project Advent Calendar gifts in CUTE UGLY SWEATERS: Part One.  For Part 2, I wanted to show that these hairs are even more versatile when you experiment by combining different bangs and hairbases.  This is a great way to get more bang for your buck (pun totally intended!).


The Something New ~ Frostie's my Bestie pose we used for this post is super sweet and is available at the Baby it's Cold Outside: Winter Time Cart Sale for only $10 L!  Four adorable couples poses for such a bargain, it's almost like a badass stocking stuffer.  The Something New mainstore has a ton of great Christmas poses, a couple of Christmas hunts going on, a phenomenal Christmas couples group gift, as well as luckies and midnight mania boards.  

Lastly, as cynical as I probably sound about Christmas, I still do ultimately believe in the spirit of togetherness and giving that makes the season so magical too.  So when I discovered the elegant Elephant Topiary featured in the post that was designed by the talented, Eliza Wierwright, I knew I had to blog about this.  The stunning topiary may be purchased for $499 L, the proceeds from which go to the Save Elephant Foundation.   The money being raised will help provide for the care of a captive elephant in Thailand. I thought it was a very charitable gesture from second life to real life and I wanted to share it with all my readers. 

This post was made under the influence of clipping coupons, pumpkin pancakes, eggnog, a scary Santa movie marathon and the following, which is merely part of capitalism's constant dull hum of Christmas music constantly playing in the background since October:

Christmas is a lot about being over the top, and it seems like Ugly Christmas Sweaters really celebrate all the garishness and gaudiness that the season seems to offer.  Daisy found these awesome ones from  [Phunk].  They come with a handy HUD, letting the wearer pick from several different designs.  I had so much fun working on this post with Daisy, who shot the pics, that I later edited into this awesome-sauce fruitcake of a photo spread, that there may even be a post Christmas Ugly Sweater post in the works! So be on the lookout for that, just in case you have not yet had your fill. 

 The ALICE PROJECT  Advent Calendar Gift hair that I am wearing in this post is a 2012 Advent gift.  Each hair from that collection comes with five special edition Christmas colors.  The red and green streaks pretty much have made these styles my go-to Christmas coiffures.  Excitingly, the 2012 Calendar is out again and all the styles can be purchased for a mere $50 L each!  Or, the entire 2012 advent collection can be purchased  for only $625 L.  

The Alice Project 2013 Advent Calendar is also out and each day features a new free hair that comes in five different colors, all with special edition Frosted periwinkle highlights. Members of the V.I.P. group can also pick up two additional versions of the hairstyles each day.  If you missed any of the styles so far, never fear; you can pick up the 2013 goodies for $50 L each.  

Happy shopping and holidays to all!
