No, don’t eat me! It’s the cake talking – eat the cake. If you eat the cake, you’ll grow y’see. If you drink from the tiny bottle, you shrink. At least I think it’s that way around.
Things get pretty confusing around here sometimes.
I was talking with my buddy Kanj last night about how each of the basically indie DJs at AAi has their own style and magic. For instance… the sets can vary in terms of genre and style, but if I listened to it, I’d know who’d made the set. Iain likes to keep it upbeat, but he also likes to put in some strange stuff he found – 70s porny music was the most recent. Kanji varies between laid back and upbeat, but she’s a real spirit of nature, you can often find folky vibes in her sets. Becka chooses only the best indie, mostly new, and mixes the whole set by hand – sometimes her transitions are better than the individual songs. Kal is always gazing at his shoes (as are we) and loves some indie pop too. Chris can’t help but slip some butts in there when he’s flyin’, he also does amazing live mixing and makes his own mash-ups.
I was thinking about how odd it would be if each of them began djing each other’s style. I’d not like it. I’d be all ‘Oi, Becka, stop with that 70s porn music’. ‘Kanji, stop playing butt songs’. Well, I might not say it, but I’d sure be thinking it.
Their sets are like their fingerprints, each as individual as the one before and I think that’s a kind of art 😀

So Blueberry and Vinyl did a collaboration for Collabor88 (how appropriate!) and Vinyl made a top that would fit nicely with Blueberry’s belted skirt. Blueberry also made a top that would go with the skirt – it’s a crisp shirt, I’ll be blogging that in a few days too. I believe Reign also made some footwear to go with the ensemble, but, I haven’t been to C88 yet (I know, what is wrong with me?).
AviCandy has done a new range for Halloween which is at their mainstore, but this part I’m showing you today is for The Mad Circus 2, which is on now. The ‘We’re All Mad’ tights come in 6 colours for all possible mesh applications and layers for those who eschew the mew. (No idea… just rambling).
RunAway’s Kimberly Hair is a charming, girly-twirly style in a wide range of soft tones, of which this is one of the Blondes. You can pop along to Hairology and scoop it up any time til the end of this month.
Here’s some more shots including the ‘well lit, no shit’. Click to see them larger.
And finally, here’s my ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. Let’s see if I can demonstrate any poke through while moving.
