The Princess and the Pea


Call me biased but I find the upcoming Arcade stuff from Olive and Paloma more than adorable!! Princess and the pea themed, one of the rarer is a super high towering bed with lots of soft mattresses that would be enough to let everyone sleep like an angel…. unless you are a true princess! Further, there is this crazy cute bedhead hair “Sweetpea” both with (rare) and without a princess sleeping mask. See the wall art in the back, those are stills of actual soundwaves of Darla reading the Princess and the pea fariytale! How cute is that? Not from Arcade, I am wearing Starfly, by Dead Dollz, which is just a really pretty little number that is perfect as a nightie! And on my Karin head from LeLutka/Undivided, I am still wearing Pink Fuel‘s Sora aplier! The Arcade opens on June 1st. Strip bare, alpha up and be ready to brave the lag if you’re lucky enough to get in, and part with your L$!!

Abandon

I found this great Abandon scarf and pants by Dead Dollz in my inventory today. No clue when I  bought them, but gosh, it’s so perfect. I am waring it with  one of the latest tattoos from White Widow, Lost River, which has appliers for my Maitreya Lara body! On my head, the incredibly intricate Maang Tikka from Shi, which is currently available at Uber. A close up, raw from SL, can be seen here And then, mind if I gush a moment over the update that Mochi Milena did for her Sora alabaster skin? LeLutka applier included! For the first time in my SL, I don’t look like a kid when I am in Pink Fuel skin!!!  Mind you, I love Pink Fuel but I never felt comfortable in it because their skins always have this amazingly youthful and fresh look to it, but with this applier, I look like I am not barely legal anymore!!! The only criticism on this purchase is, that I would gladly have bought just the appliers, and not the full skin pack, because I don’t thinkI will ever wear the regular skin, and at that point, 2.3k is a pretty steep price!… Read the rest

Alessa is it

This gorgeous dark skin is Alessa by IT Girls and it’s made for the LeLutka/Undivided mesh heads. What i particularly like about this skin (applier) and actually of all IT girls skins are the rather pronounced cheekbones. This gives all their skins a fairly mature and sophisticated look. All images in this post are untouched, except for some cropping and framing for the pic below. The headpiece is by Baiastice and currently available at Uber, and the stunning eyes are by Ikon.

Garden Bard

I’m so behind with blogging. I keep taking pics, but I don’t give myself the time to sit down and put it out here!
One of the recent items at Collabor88 is the pretty Garden Bard Abode from Trompe l’Oeil. I so love the work from Cory Edo. And the price is ridiculous. L$ 188!! I have shot this pic in the Moon bubble from Rustica and the hollyhocks, the willow and the oak are from Heart Botanicals

A walk on the beach

At this month’s Collabor88, Tee*fy has these awesomely made Giselle Rompers out. There is a fitted version as well as standard sizes, and it fits perfectly with the Maitreya Lara body which I am wearing most of the time. The necklace I am wearing with it is by Maxi Gossamer, and also from this month’s C88. It’s called Ariel Sun pendant, and as with all Maxi Gossamer‘s stuff, it’s texture change and comes in both a long and a short version. I’m wearing New Faces Scarlet applier on LeLutka‘s Stella mesh head. The New Faces brows are among the best I know! Look at how full and lush and perfectly shaped they are! I hope New Faces will have more skintones and more faces out soon! From Catwa I got the Woke Up hair which is a loosely tied low pony tail with a texture change hair clamp, but I’m not too fond of the textures provided, so I just make it transparent.

Caressing the light

This round of Collabor88 is full of pretty powdery pastels!! And I love those as much as I love my whites and greys! I am wearing Fashionably Dead‘s oversized T on Tres Blah‘s Grace cropped jeans and Atomic‘s Piper flats. Makes me a happy Graz, especially with the RL temperatures that are on the rise and mother nature is celebrating a big orgy. Honestly, you can almost see the trees and flowers grow. I hope that the end of summer will bring me a nice harvest of fruit from our orchard, because the past couple of years have been disappointing. /end ramble. My hair is also available at C88 and is from Lamb, called Ultraviolet and my necklace is from Maxi Gossamer, Solaris Pearls and my Fragmented shades are from Yummy, also from this round of C88.
Last but not least, I am wearing it all over my Lara body by Maitreya and I am wearing my favorite mesh head Karin, by LeLutka and a Karin skin applier by Glam Affair.

Miles to nowhere

 New Exile!!  Miles to nowhere is one of the two styles Exile brings to this round of Collabor88, themed Into the light, with lots of pretty pastels and fairly romantic designs! My kind of round!! I took this pic before C88 opened, so I am not using other stuff from the event yet, but the Chloe shirt dress from Valentina E. is very me in both worls, and I am pairing it with COCO Designs over the shoulders biker jacket. For accessoires I am wearing Cae‘s Triskele collar and Maxi Gossamer‘s Violette cut beads necklace. My face is LeLutka‘s Karin mesh head and I am wearing YS&YS‘ Yvonne applier, as well as Maitreya‘s Lara body.

Gina

New ColdLogic!! And I am a sucker for a nice wrapped skirt and the creatives behind the brand made plenty of those this week!! I am wearing ColdLogic‘s Pirie shirt and their Selby skirt and as usual, their clothes come in a plethora of colors and textures. I liked this ” beach” one and decided to wear Chemistry‘s Zara hair with it in a pretty blonde/blue ombre shade. I am hooked on the LeLutka Undivided mesh heads and I am Wearing Stella today. With her well defined chin and jaw, she’s the princess of Sass for me. From Adam ‘n Eve is the beautiful Gina applier that I am wearing with it. See below for a comparison of Gina on every currently available LeLutka mesh head. Accessoireswise I have kept it quite simple. I am wearing Cae‘s Phases necklace, which is currently out at Fameshed and a pretty daffodil in my hair which i got from a gacha at Lode.

The Hierophant

The new round of We <3 Roleplay is underway and it’s an anniversary edition! Lots of creators have little presents out for you!
I am wearing Glam Affair’s  fantasy skin applier in silver for the LeLutka mesh heads on this pic, and I must admit: I love it, even though I do precious little fantasy/RP. I’m combining it with Tableau Vivant’s Cersei hair, also out at We <3 RP and the Immortal eyes from Ikon. When Aisling is releasing stuff that is not in a gacha machine and does not consist of a 100 (gorgeous) pieces, it’s a musthave for me. This Hierophant outfit is such a rare deal and it’s currently available in several colors/combinations at We <3 RP! I found the name a bit weird, because in the Tarot, it’s a typically male card, the High Priest, Pope or Shaman, the embodiment of institutionalized religion and the ritualization of life while the opposite of the Hierophant, the High Priestess, is more connected to intuition, sensuality and femininity.… Read the rest

Esedra

See that gorgeous neck piece? It’s new from Miamai for We <3 RolePlay! Aside from the necklace, which is also available in gold and brass, there also is a set of bracers, which you can see on the pic below! I love what Monica and Pill do with materials. It’s pretty stunning how the silver shines!
My hair is Rose, by the lovely MissAllSunday Lemon from Wasabi Pills and my eyes are Ikon‘s Charm eyes in Moor.
Any excuse to take more piccies with my new Karin meshhead from LeLutka. I’m wearing it here with Glam Affair‘s Ever 3 make up, and Glam Affair‘s Candy Lips 10. See, here you have a nice view of the Esedra bracers. Do visit the event and try them. You’ll love them as much as i do!
White Widow is back after a period of inactivity, and Julie Hastings has this gorgeous Crossswind tattoo out. She also updated most of her existing tattoos for the most popular mesh bodies! I am wearing the Maitreya one here. Works like a charm, every time!… Read the rest

Svetlana

Still ongoing is Shiny Shabby April, a monthly event organised by Anaisterpellie Resident, Neva Crystall and Vivienmarli Resident. I love it. It has a ton of qualitiy designers, a beautiful set up and most important, great items. This statement piece Svetlana, from Azoury, struck me right away, but I only went back to buy it today. Remind me I check out their mainshop, because I really don’t know this brand. The roses in my hair came with the necklace. I am wearing the New Faces Scarlett applier on the new LeLutka/Undivided Stella head. See that gorgeous royal blue eyeshadow? It comes with the skin applier in a separate HUD. The lovely bun hair, Amelia, is from Chemistry.

Paradiso

Kunglers has some stunning jewelry. It has been a while since Ava Kungler started to make accessoires, but gosh, it’s all so intricate and beautifully textured. Like these Paradiso earrings. Don’t you just love the teal/greenish/purple-red hues?? If you have never been to Kunglers, you should. Besides the pretties for your neck and ears, they also have a lovely clothing collection. I’ll admit though, I do go there almost exclusively for the shinies! Taxi to kunglers Other need to knows: Hair EOI251  by Boon

Lumiere

With the availability of the LeLutka heads, I might be blogging more accesoires because making close ups is so smooth and so much fun with them!
I picked Cae‘s Lumiere set today, because I love the casual but classy look that a lot of her jewelry has. Lumiere comes with a HUD to change the metals and the stones. I love that about her stuff. It makes combining with clothing and outfits so easy. There is a pattern here, I am all albout easy lately, must be because my RL is so demanding as of late.
Lumiere is available at The 100 Block and is 50% off during the event, which is still ongoing through April 30! The fit of Littlebones hair is pretty much hit or miss for me. Sometimes it’s great, other times it’s a mess and I can’t seem to get it right (duh, logically so, because it’s mostly rigged) . Tennis Court though fits like a charm, and I like it because it exposes one of the earrings, which is not always easy with longer hair styles. I am wearing LeLutka‘s Undivided Karin,which will be released in a couple of days, with Deetalez Heaven applier.… Read the rest

Karin, Stella & Lotte

Eyes by Ikon, hair by Dura   On April 30, LeLutka will release 3 new mesh heads, Karin (shown above) Stella (below) and Lotte (far below). When I received them last night, I wanted to play and take pics for hours, resulting in a upload flood on my flickr stream. They are so easy to work with and so pretty. Collar & septum ring by Yummy. Hair by Dura   With the way they react to various windlights, it’s really quite effortless to take pretty pics and we all like pretty pics, don’t we? In yesterday’s post, I already showed how different 1 head with 1 shape will look using different skin appliers, so I am not scared we’ll all end up looking alike! Hair by Argrace, headpiece by Bauhaus, eyes by Ikon   It’s only fair to do a side by side in the same light conditions, with the same eyes and the same hair, too. So there we go. No make up on any of these faces here, just the pretty base skin by Aida Ewing from Glam Affair. It’s only a couple more days waiting.… Read the rest

Variety

  I wanted to show you the same mesh head, and the same underlaying head shape with some of the different new skin appliers available since April 23, because the effect is quite dramatic. Just like when you wear another skin on your usual shape on the regular SL avatar they all look pretty different. I am wearing the upcoming Karin head from LeLutka’s Undivided here. Yes, I know I am a tease, but this new head is definitely my current favorite. From left to right, I am wearing it with Glam Affair (clean Ever, because Karin has yet to get her own base skin), YS&YS‘ Yvonne, Deetalez Heaven, Adam ‘n Eve‘s Chelsea and Izzie‘s Sophee, all no make up versions. Imagine when you start to mix and match the different make ups, because you can! Or, fiddle with the head sliders. Although the rigging  to the skeleton in the head is limited to affect only 2 sliders (head size and head stretch) the effects can be quite dramatic, as you can see in Sasy’s post here.… Read the rest

Hanging out on a Wednesday

This week’s release at ColdLogic has the prettiest dress!  Esper is a pretty little shift dress with a halter back and there goes a blouse over it, tied around the hips. The dress is shaded appropriately, so you need to wear it with the shirt, but I love it like that. I am wearing the dress with Fri.day‘s new Bailey loafers, out now at Kustom9.  Loafers like this remind me of the time that i used to sail fanatically. I loved in those shoes all season and the older they looked, the better it was! I am wearing Maitreya‘s Lara body which just had a minor update. When you wear it, the latest version will be sent to you automatically. I am also wearing LeLutka’s/Undivided’s Aria head with YS & YS‘ Ivonne skin applier and Glam Affair‘s candy lips. Tomorrow several skinners like YS&YS, Adam ‘n Eve and Izzie’s will release skin appliers for the Undivided heads, and I am so excited for it. We’ll have more options for customisation and the various make up elements are interchangeable!… Read the rest

The Temptress

For The Liaison Collaborative, Belleza made Eva, and what a tempting skin it is. The previcous couple of skins from Belleza didn’t really fit me, which is odd, because many claim that these skins all look the same to them.. but I kid you not, I wasn’t feelng the previous couple of skins on my shape. Eva on the contrary fits me like a glove again. While I tweak my shape all the time, when I have to tweak more for a skin than a bit of lip ratio and cleft, It’s not for me so to say and Eva just slipped on and felt ok! See below for all the beutiful make ups! Other need to knows: Hair: Olivia by EnVogue
Eyes: Promise by Ikon
Necklace: simple by Izzie’s
Dress: Windy T dress by Vincue

Over the dateline

I needed a title for this post, and Kavar from Exile usually picks cute names from song lyrics, so, Over the dateline it is! This hair is available at this month’s Collabor88 as is my Glam Affair Katra skin in the party edition. Quite the glamorous make ups, I must say. Love them all! Not only does Exile have 2 hairs out for C88, he released another 3 hairs last week! Pics below! My Dame dress is from the latest release of ColdLogic. I seriously adore that brand because of wearability. You never have to think if you look cute is you pick some of their stuff to wear. It’s maybe not the most exciting brand, but gosh, do I wear them a lot! The only reason I tend to slack on blogging them is that I suffer from option stress. Their releases are always so huge, that I never know what to pick and shoot for the blog and then I end up being distracted with other stuff and before youknow it, they have a new release out! Stop being so diligent, guys! (just kidding!)
