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.

The victrix

Just a quick reminder that you have only a couple of days left before the July round of We Love Role-Play closes (the August round opens on the 6th, a couple of days later than usual). That’s where you’ll find this original mesh, clasically-inspired gown from Luminary.

Continuing the classical theme is the Christine hair from Lelutka which debuted at Hair Fair. The Trojan Necklace and Gypsy Bracers are both from The Forge. The necklace is strictly limited to 200 in quantity at Project Limited which opened on 20 July. The bracers first appeared at the Countdown Room but will probably reappear at the Forge mainstore before too long.

By the way, if you happened to glance at my profile, I mentioned that I’m travelling a lot at the moment, so not really blogging. I just happened to have a few days at home and managed to squeeze in a couple of posts. (Not fibbing about not blogging!). I might be able to squeeze in another post before the weekend, if not, see you in September or October… Inshallah!

Enchantment preview: Bluebeard

Fairytales in their original form tend to be gruesome, and Bluebeard – the inspiration for the upcoming August round of Enchantment – is more gruesome than most.

A young woman marries an infamous local aristocrat, possessed of and named for his blue beard. Soon after the marriage, Bluebeard tells his wife (unnamed in the story) that he must travel for business, and will be gone some weeks. He hands her to keys to every room in his castle, telling her she may access all the rooms except one, on pain of his anger and punishment.

Inevitably, the young wife breaks his interdict, and makes her way to the secret chamber discovering its horrific secret; Bluebeard has murdered his previous wives and hung their remains from hooks on the wall. She drops the key into a pool of blood, and try as she might, she cannot remove the bloodstain from the magical key.

Bluebeard then returns unexpectedly early, but the young woman is rescued by her brothers in the nick of time.

The wandering stars, the wandering June

So I finally got a chance to log in (busy RL, SL not cooperating) and head over to Collabor88. This month’s theme is nautical, and there are logs of fun things to pick up. Not least among them are this cool hair from Clawtooth (optional starfish attachment not shown) and top from Milk Motion.

Next on my list to check out is (Tales of Fantasy gacha event) where you’ll find these horns from The Forge. The necklace is from Luminary and you’ll find it at the upcoming round of Genre, which opens on June 15.

We Love Role-Play is still going strong, with everything discounted between 25 and 50%, including these pants from Paper Moon and the gorgeous bag from The Library.

Cold as ice

The new round of We Love Role-Play opens tomorrow. Lots more quality items, all at 25-50% off. The rules for the event have changed somewhat, and new releases are now the general order of the day.

From the event, I’m wearing the Deucalion Halo from from Random Matter. You buy individual colours for 190L each, or splash out and get the ‘fatpack’ texture change version for 500L. With it, you can mix and match the colours as well as use each individual colour.

Alongside it, I’m wearing Keystone’s Corva circlet, which includes four different shades. The stag pauldrons are from ieQED, while the belt is included with Luminary’s Jane gown (50% off for the event). My spooky eyes are one of the three pairs of mesh and system eyes in  theSkinnery’s Demon Eyes set.

My skin is from The.Plastik – it’s another of the Astrali skins, this time in a fantasy tone. There are over 100 tones of this skin, and luckily there’s an extensive appliers pack available for each.

My main outfit – a skirt and corset combination – is just one of On a Lark‘s 25L Tuesday offerings. It’s been a while since I did the 25LT rounds, but On a Lark is always a must-visit for the amazing deals. You have just a few hours left to take advantage!
