What tickles your feet?

What tickles your feet... ermm fancy?

First, I need to inform everyone that Designer Showcase has now moved! You may want to mark that down in your landmarks so that you have the current location. Second, The Arcade is open and is FABULOUS! Good luck getting in but if you want to hit up yard sales you have that option as well. I think I might end up doing both!

On another note, I have planned on starting to describe what I would call encounter disasters. Maybe not all of them are disasters, but they are interesting and I get a kick out of some of the random weird things that are said to me during first hello’s and first dates. I thought about writing about the first date the other night where the guy obsessed over his hair for 2 hours. I think I saw every hair on the grid just standing there watching him change. My eyes crossed! I think it might be a little more appropriate to tell you about a first encounter. I wasn’t really expecting much to happen this night; however, I decided to head out to Frank’s Place Jazz Club. I went to the free club because honestly there are single (or claims of being single) people there who actually will talk or ask you to dance. At the paid portion of Frank’s Elite it ends up being a ton of couples and all smooches which sorry…. I am not that sappy! Anyhow, I was sitting there talking to a some friends who are just great. We were all smiles and laughing and then just when the white undies turn into the white flag of surrender, the message of the night comes along.

I received a rather polite response from a man who was actually wearing a mesh suit and seemed to try to take care of himself as best as possible. I say this because it seems to be rare here as well. No, I am not being snobby, it is just nice to appreciate someone who tries to look nice. The first few comments were a polite hello and a message that he was just looking through my Flickr and liked what he saw but that he had a question for me. He asked… randomly… if I had a shoe fetish. This was by far the most interesting first question that I have received in a long time. As I explained that I was a blogger and sometimes I like to include just a shoe photo… that wasn’t a good enough answer apparently! He then began to explain that my photos were disconcertingly sexy… oh hell, I will just post this and leave this here for you to read….

XXX: the way you take those pics is disconcertingly sexy

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): slight foot fetish yourself? lol

XXX: it’s a fair question… the truth is I really don’t know if I do or not. I don’t think I have a typical foot fetish but I do find female feet and legs attractive. I wish I didn’t though

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): hm you wish you didn’t? As in you wish that they weren’t female or that you had an attraction to another body part?

XXX: lol I wish I had no reaction to those body parts. Let me give you an example of what I mean…

XXX: your 1st life picture is awesome. It’s very sexy but at the same time it’s not explicitly sexual There is a subtlety to it, which is something missing in a lot of SL photography. I can look at it, make these observations and appreciate it without having any undue reaction. On the other hand some of the pictures in your flickr I feel like I have a disproportionate reaction to. After all they are just pictures of pixels and in many of them you’re wearing more than in your 1st life pic

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): that is a very interesting observation. The reason may be that I did not actually take the photo in my first life pic. It was done by a friend. Im not sure what the difference is in the flickr photos as opposed to that one really.

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): and here I thought you might just offer to buy me shoes to relieve some of the pressure there lol

XXX: lol

XXX: do you mind if I ask you a purely hypothetical question about that scenario?

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): lol go for it

XXX: hypothetically if I had bought you shoes which you were wearing and showing them off for me. If you could tell that you were arousing me, would that be arousing for you?

Tessa Rosca (tessagrace51): hm this is a rather interesting hypothetical

Now, I will stop the conversation here because the rest was just kind of… blah! This was basically the root and ending of the conversation which shouldn’t come as a surprise. I have two take away’s here. First, Do not try to act like your some kind of upstanding guy who just doesn’t do sexual things in SL. I have met… TWO men who actually aren’t interested in things like this. I felt like he was somewhat trying to be shy but come on.. you start off asking a women about a shoe fetish? The second thing that I took away… was that I take more photos of my legs and shoes that I realized. OOPS! Live and learn right?

Well for my first relationship/dating/encounters post I think i went rather well. I might tell you about the guy wanting the sex train later but I needed to start off a little soft. 😛 TOOTLES!

Wedding Season

2.7.15.1On February 6th I married one of my best friends in SL… I can honestly say was the best decision I have made. We know how SL is always a revolving door where people will come and go and some fit and some do not. We sometimes hope that things work the way we would like and we try to force things into place. I have done this countless times because I am such a control freak on how I want an outcome to be. I can easily admit my flaws, which I guess is a good thing, but it sometimes makes it hard to see the good parts as well. Tony brings out those good parts in me. He knows the right moment to make me laugh and smile. As he knows… sometimes I want to smack the back of his head, but I think that makes us normal. I really like this kind of normal.

I had someone make a comment this past week about some certain situations going on and it kind of prompt me to make this statement… Just because sometimes things look rocky or because you might have a fight about which couch to use in your SL living room… it doesn’t mean that things will never work and you should just give up. Giving up may be what you like to do, but it certainly isn’t mine. Everyone has flaws, but its about embracing those and loving them anyway. That includes the person who made these statements in the first place.Just because you see something that may not be how you feel or would react, it doesn’t mean that everyone will react to it the same as you. That is the good part about SL… we are all different!

No, this is not my wedding dress since we didn’t have a wedding, but it is a fabulous find that happened to come at the right time. Maybe these designers had this in mind since I believe it is the peak of wedding season in SL. Valentines does seem to make people want to declare their love and what better way than a wedding. You can pick up this headpiece and gown both at Designer Showcase. The whole place is filled with things to complete any look you might desire for Valentines. TOOTLES

Lybra Girl

10.9.14.1

I would say this gown is very fitting for a birthday girl 🙂 My birthday is on Monday, so of course I am celebrating for the full weekend! I look like a million bucks, but really… This gown is only 100L right now at Designer Showcase! I had to show you this amazing deal because I am in love and I know when you put it on you will be as well. The dress is mesh, but the skirt is a flexi add on. There is an additional shoulder strap when hands into a beautiful sheer fabric down the back. So this is my little present to you 🙂 Info about another beautiful gown from Lybra. TOOTLES

FashionArt Fair Press Release

| Legal Insanity presents “When Fashion Meets Art ” Fashion Fair. |

FASHIONART POSTER with Sponsors new

09th – 31st May 2014
—————————–

Legal Insanity Expo

One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art. – Oscar Wilde

A designer is an artist and the medium on which they work is clothing or accessories, just as the painter works uses canvas to portray his vision, the sculptor uses marble, clay or metal.

As designers flirt ever closer with the idea that fashion is about much more than just dress and appearance we decided to challenged our best SL designers to break boundaries and turn their designs into walking canvases. With designs inspired by classic iconography to Warhol from Picasso to Mondrian the Fashion Meets Art fair explores them all and more.

Join us and see just what happens – When Fashion Meets Art!

Please follow all of the events and designs on our Flickr page or our Facebook Page
