Seafoam

This month’s round of Collabor88) is themed ‘Snow Day’ and one of the featured colours is a beautifully frosty seafoam / aqua tone. I grabbed this shawl from Baiastice and the long mermaid skirt from Fashionably Dead to put together this modest look.

I delved deep into my inventory to add a short dress from u.f.o, top and sleeves from On a Lark, and a flexi skirt from an old FallnAngels outfit.

The hand jewels are an older design from Crystal Line. They’re not intended for Slink hands, but with a little tweaking you should get a reasonable fit on at least some of the Slink hand models.  I’m wearing Casual and Elegant hands in the pictures.

Headdress is from Modern Couture, and the beanie hat I’m wearing as a hood comes from a Soedara outfit, tinted to match the shawl.

Finally, if you’re super-quick you might still be able to catch the poses on special offer for Lazy Sunday at Ma Vie.

Winter snug

This yummy coat is the current  We Love Role-Play offering from May’s Soul.

Frankly, this coat looks so unbelievably snug that I wish had one RL! However, at least in SL, no fluffy animals were harmed to make this coat, which makes it easier for the vegetarians amongst us.

The mittens are a free gift under the tree at the event – just join the update group and help yourself to some awesome goodies.

I’m also wearing my trusty Arachzis horns from The.Plastik and Dyisi boots from Evie’s Closet. Neither are new releases, but they’re both items I turn to again and again. Does that make them classic?!

Gypsy

If you’ve been living under an in-world rock, you might not have heard that Truth Hair currently have a massive sale on, until 15 December. Everything at the mainstore is 50%, even the most recent releases. (The exceptions being those styles which are currently exclusive to various events round the grid.) So now is the time to stock up on anything you may have missed!

Also, Leafy skins are back on the grid, and there’s another sale. You can pick up a gacha skin for as little as 40L, or ‘standard’ skins are up to 175L, with big reductions on fatpacks as well. Hopefully this means there will be new skins – and appliers! – soon.

Clothes are from Senzafine, jewelry from Zaara, and the belt is part of an outfit from Evie’s Closet.

Free in December

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… for gifts in Second Life of course!

Once again, you’ll find a series of Advent Calendar gifts at Alice Project. Each day, you’ll find a different gift under the tree (there are two gifts, one for group members, and one that anybody can take).  The styles are beautiful, and have a seasonal touch with red and green streaks through the hair.

I picked up a couple of great gifts while on the Peace on Earth hunt. My outfit (gown, hair accessory and armbands) is from Bubblez Style, and skin is from WoW Skins. All the prizes on this hunt are 0L.

Some designers have also put out gifts at Totally Top Shelf – most of these are near the landing point. That’s where the wings I’m wearing from, courtesy of Chimeric Fashions.

Other gift locations include the current rounds of We Love Role-Play and The Arcade (I might wear some of these in a future post).

Double trouble

This is my first attempt at a double avatar photo, using some of the tips in this tutorial.  I might try this technique again, it’s quite useful for showing off a lot of stuff at once.  Editing the images together is super easy, but I did have to mess around quite a bit in-world.

Anyway, what I’m showing off in this post is my Black Friday haul from The.Plastik,The sale runsuntil 23.59 on Monday, so if you have any linden dollars left, do not miss it.  There’s between 30% and 50% off almost all the clothes and accessories, so stock up. Fatpack prices have also been slashed

Also, please note that today is the last day of this round of Enchantment – which also means its the very last day you’ll ever be able to get your hands on any of the exclusive prizes.

Miss Miller

Time to get your skates on – there are just four days left for the Rumpelstiltskin round of Enchantment.

In these pictures, I’m wearing both of Dead Dollz‘s offerings. First is The Miller’s Daughter Choker, which is the item for sale.

It includes a stamp card, which you can complete by visiting all the participating stores and tagging the card. Then you can exchange it for any of the prizes in the special prize location. (Full details on the official Enchantment blog.)

This brings us to the Dead Dollz second item – it’s the special exclusive Enchantment prize, The Miller’s Daughter gown. Isn’t it beautiful?

As one of the special prizes, it will only be until the end of November. After this, it will disappear into the ether, never to be seen again.

The fur shrug I’m wearing is from The Annex – it’s another special Enchantment item, while my eyes from Adored are another Enchantment prize.

The armwarmers/sleeves are from Junbug, from the Midnight Fae gacha at The Secret Affair. Don’t miss this one, because the price for play is set to only 30L for the duration of the event. The prizes include sleeves, wings, and fabulous gowns. This round also ends on 30 November, so don’t miss out.

Oh, and a slightly early Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating!

FLF reminder

Super quick post to remind you to take advantage of Fifty Linden Friday before it’s too late.

There’s another outfit pack and Slink nail appliers from The.Plastik. I’m wearing just one version of the corset, boots, and horns in the pictures, but there is so much more included. A rough count suggests 22 different items, including jewelry, long skirt, and five different styles of the corset. As always, a ridiculous steal for 50L!

Other offers you shouldn’t miss –  a smokey-eyed skin from Belleza, and poses from oOo Studio and !bang.

Celestial grace

 The Fantasy Collective has just opened, and this round is inspired by the theme ‘Celestial’. The designers have really stepped up to the mark, so expect to leave this round with heavily loaded armfuls of ethereal gowns and accessories.

For me, one of the outfits I simply couldn’t miss was Valentina E’s ‘We are all made of stars’. The outfit consists of a base gown, an overgown, and a crown (crown not shown here). Each of the items is sold separately, so you can decide exactly what you want to spend your lindens on, and how you’ll incorporate the pieces into your inventory.

… in a dress

One of Junbug’s most recent releases is the Vintage School Dress, which is not only super-cute, but dedicated to a very special cause.

The proceeds go to the charity Do It in a Dress, which supports the education of girls in Africa, and you can choose to pay between 250L and 400L for each dress. You should definitely visit their site – not only is it informative and inspiring, but there are some hilarious visuals of people undertaking activities in school uniform dresses.

You can pick up a special pink edition at the current round of Kustom9 or choose from one of five colours at the Junbug mainstore.

The Junbug campaign page, showing the running total raised by this outfit, is here. The campaign itself runs until 7 December.

Golden girl

Some more items from Enchantment to show you… and also a brand new outfit from Soedara.

Adored Bodyshop have produced a nice cosmetics collection for this round. I’m wearing the Gilded eyeliner in Princess, and the Golden Girl nails for Slink hands and feet. At their store, you’ll also find a set of smoky eyeshadows and some metallic lipcolours (not shown). Their prize is a set of eyes – the Firstborn eyes – containing six different colours of system and mesh eyes. (I’m wearing goldenbrown.)

Modish, meanwhile, have released a set of eyebrow tattoos (Mesh Project compatible, not shown), and their prize is the Auric gold jewelry set of earrings and bangle.

Soedara’s latest outfit is Aegle Nymph of the Evening set of mesh silks. In the box you’ll find the mesh top and skirt in standard sizes (plus a bonus top to accomodate your Lolas, etc).

There are several huds giving you tons of customisation options. You have four choices of fabric tint, and change its transparency, which also means you can wear the top and skirt as necklace and belt instead, if you want. The hud also allows you choose between bead colours and 13 jewel colours, plus four colours of metal.  Also included is a pretty circlet in three colours (gold, silver and bronze).

The expectant queen: More from Enchantment

A quick post to show you some more items from the upcoming round of Enchantment.

W.Winx & Flair have produced some pregnancy-themed poses for this round as their in-store exclusive. The set includes poses with hands protectively cradling tummy, or supporting a tired back! They inspired me to take these shots of a pensive queen… perhaps remembering the bargain she made, to surrender her firstborn infant to the imp known as Rumpelstiltskin.

The circlet I’m wearing is the Rumple Tiara from Wimey. It represents the straw which the miller’s daughter had to weave into gold, and it comes with a colour change hud for the tiara’s gems.

Finally, the necklace and ring are from yumyums. Regarding the necklace, there are 11 different gem styles to choose from, while a hud lets you change the metal of the ring and the gem surround, and the colour of the leather cord.

Enchantment preview: Rumpelstiltskin

The new round of Enchantment – the stamp card rally with fairytale theme – opens in November.

The inspiration behind this round is Rumpelstiltskin. A poor miller lies that his daughter can spin straw into gold. Alas for our heroine; the king believes him and has her locked up in a tower room full of straw, and a solitary spinning wheel, so that she can increase his net worth by morning… or have her head chopped off.

Rescue shows up in the shape of imp, who spins the gold in exchange for her necklace, her ring, and finally the promise of her firstborn child when she is queen.

A year passes, and the new queen has forgotten all about the imp, and gives birth to a beautiful, much loved child. The imp suddenly appears and demands that she relinquish the infant to him, although he offers her a second chance: if she can discover his name in three days she can keep the child.

Autumn sunlight

The Fantasy Collective has just opened, and for me, one of the standouts is the Lucrezia hairstyle from Tableau Vivant – it’s an ornamented updo with optional ponytail attachement. You’ve probably seen that the colour packs were recently revamped, and I am loving the new basics collection. You get 30 different shades, running the gamut of natural hair tones, and also featuring some ombres. Bonus: the basics pack is the same price as all the single-colour packs.

I definitely think all hair makers should offer “basics” or “naturals” packs. Personally, it definitely factors into whether or not I buy a hairstyle from a particular maker. For instance, there’s one creator who regularly produces beautiful styles, but you have to buy a fatpack, or a single tone pack of four shades. That certainly makes me think long and hard about spending my lindens!

What do you think – are you faithful to one hair colour, or do you prefer mixed packs?

Desert dancer

So, I’m back! It seems like there’s been an insane amount of stuff happening event-wise these days. Unfortunately, my SL is very laggy (is it the ridiculous inventory I’m dragging around?) so exploring is not so much fun.

Anyway, less complaining, more fashion.

Vurdah of the Desert is a recent release from Soedara, and it’s funky mesh top and harem pants combo. a You get three versions of the top; in these photos, I’m wearing the slightly-sheer version. Also included are the belt, anklets, bangles, upperarm bands, face chain and diamond bindi.

(PSSST, the gold colour of the outfit is 160L, almost half price, on the marketplace as a promotion. I don’t know how long this will last.)

Fifty Linden Friday again…

My favourite Fifty Linden Friday round is always the one which includes The.Plastik – and that’s today. There are two special offers out today, one of which is the Raine outfit set. I’m wearing the dress and top from it in these pictures, but it also includes a mini-skirt, corset, boots, and puff sleeves, plus appliers… all for just 50L.

Also in today’s FLF are the Connie sandals from Noodles, and the Trudy poses from oOo Studio (btw, there’s a 50% off sale at oOo until 31st August).

Full credits after the jump.Read more »

More events!

A super quick post, just to highlight some ongoing events.

The chainmail vest I’m wearing is from The Forge,  at Tales of Fantasy. Be quick though, this round closes on 29 August.

Likewise, you have only a couple of days to shop Enchantment. I love this eye makeup from Tarnished.

Fantasy Gacha Carnival, where you’ll find the dress, belt and cuffs from May’s Soul, runs until 8 September.

Collabor88 is celebrating its third anniversary, which means even more goodies than usual. I spent all my lindens there, as the theme is Odyssey… meaning lots of classically-inspired items for Greek goddesses, including this hair from Lamb.

Enchantment: The trespass

So I have spare time and internet access for a couple of days… time to squeeze in a couple of quick posts!

August is drawing to a close, which means you have only a few days left to shop the current rounds of various events.

One of those is Enchantment, which this round is inspired by the tale of Bluebeard. You’ll find special items at each of the participating stores, and packaged with each of these is a stamp card for the rally.

Wear your card or cards and click the stamp machine at each of the 20 stores. Each completed card entitles you to choose a prize at the special prize mall.  (Detailed instructions on the  official blog.) The prizes are extra special as they are exclusive to the event and will never be available again.

In these photos, I’m wearing the Jeune Mairee gown from The Muses, and necklace and headwrap from Frogstar.

The setting is the ‘Skybox of Unfortunate Princesses’, also from Frogstar, and in the background you can see the gruesome ‘Bluebeard Bodies’ prop from DRD.
