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 Shield Maiden

The Fantasy Collective is now open!

This round is all about Vikings, so you’ll find Northern-inspired gowns and tunics, horned helmets, and fierce accessories and furniture.

In the pictures I’m wearing hair from Tableau Vivant, shield and sandals from Noodles, outfit from Distorted Dreams, circlet from Keystone, and horns from OrsiniRed. The poses – which come with sword props – are from Mien.

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!

Free stuff!

It’s been ages since I did a free post so I thought I would do a quick one for anyone who’s feeling the pinch.

The outfit, including jewelry, is from Soedara who have a ‘wall of freebies’ in the store. (There’s also a lucky chair at the main landing point.) Most of the items you will have to pay 1L for, which is then refunded.

FabFree has updated, with lots of new gifts, and seems to be following a rotation system now. There are skins there from Lumae (formerly Aeva/Heartsick) and Seven Deadly S(k)ins, and also eyes from Mayfly, which I’m wearing in the photos.

I’m wearing the latest group gift from Lara Hurley skins – Gervaise in natural, which also includes appliers for Slink hands and feet, PhatAzz, and Lola’s Tangos. That’s a rare treat, and very generous!

Hair is a group gift from Tameless. It looks like it’s a mesh style with embedded flexi pieces, but I’m not sure. You get natural and fantasy colours in the pack, which you can change with the included hud.

Both groups mentioned are free to join.

Current rounds of Enchantment and We Love Role-Play end this weekend

A lot of events are ending this weekend, as the calendar changes from May to June.

One of these is the current round of We Love Role-Play (the new round will open on 4 June).
Just to be confusing, I’m wearing items from both the soon-to-end and soon-to-open rounds.

Currently available is the Zinga belt (with matching anklets, not seen) from May’s Soul. Don’t forget all items at We<3RP are discounted between 25-50% so take advantage of the opportunity to get it for less. Coming soon is the hair-headdress combination from Emo-Tions. (Note: The hair, horns, crown and face chain are one piece, so you can’t wear or move them around individually.) The pack includes a hud which lets you change hair tone and the colour of the jewels.

The tunic/ camisk I’m wearing is a recent release from Soedara, called Siv of the North, and I’m not actually wearing half of what you get in the box. Each pack includes two colours of the mesh tunic in two lengths each, circlet, chore belt, rope belt, boots, and bracelets. Thre’s also a clothing layer undershirt (to keep those nips covered!) and and armbands, which I am wearing.

Another event ending this weekend is Enchantment. The bracelets I’m wearing are from Boom, and they’re one of the special, exclusive prizes you can choose when you buy an Enchantment item from participating stores and complete the stamp card contained within. This post on the official Enchantment blog explains the conce (Read more...)

Natsumi

Natsumi Girl is a new release from  Soedara, it’s an Asian-styled ‘dress’ so perfect for Pani roleplay sims. The outfit includes five sizes of mesh, bracelets, and a hair flower. It’s also a bargainous 150L.

I haven’t tried layering it yet, I suspect it might work well as a tunic over trousers, but it looks like it might be a little too fitted for skirts and gowns.

Also, if you’re not as out of the loop as I am, you probably already know that Aisling (or a i s l i n g) are celebrating their first anniversary. They’ve very generously put out a special collection of gifts, which includes this circlet and necklace set for women. (There’s also a necklace for men, and a variety of decor items.)

This slurl should take you right there – Aisling anniversary gift - but if you do land at the main entrance, look for the special glowing teleportal! I’m not sure how long gifts will be out for, but at least one is a limited edition and the countdown clock reads 19 days.

Earrings (by Distorted Dreams) and Face jewels (from The Forge) are both available at We Love Role-Play while my foot jewels (Pure Poison) and fan are from Fantasy Gacha Carnival 
Both events run until the end of the month.

Fire and blood

A quick Targaryen-inspired look after a bit of an unscheduled, unintended mini-hiatus from blogging!

I’m wearing several accessories from Fantasy Gacha Carnival including pauldrons from Luas, headdress and necklace from Zyn, collar from Noodles, and poses and prop from Nantra. FGC runs until the end of the month, so plenty of time to get down there and work those gachas.

Clothes-wise, I’ve layered one of the Hanael tops, a recent release from The.Plastik, over The Library’s Jessica dress.

The skin, btw,  is a special deal from Curio at  Collabor88 – you get four makeups in all tones of the skin for 888L.It’s a rockabilly theme this round, so I didn’t find much for me, but I can’t imagine not going to check everything out…

FF2014: SSD

Today is the last day of  Fantasy Faire for 2014, so it’s your last chance to wander the awe-inspiring sims and snap up some purchases in aid of the American Cancer Society.

In these pictures, I’m wearing a set of body jewelry from Sax Shepherd Designs (Hope’s Horizon sim). This is the Nyx set in gunmetal.  Your set includes a forehead jewel, necklace, earrings, nipple covers (with a set pre-positioned for Lola’s), belt, and a bikini bottom for modesty (!). There’s also a hud which allows you to turn the modesty on or off, recolour it, and change the colour of the gems.

If you have some add-on silks, you can turn the jewelry set into some dancing silks. After the jump, I’ve used Soedara’s add-on silks for the Adora Bejewelled outfit. These are perfect as you get several different lengths and style of silk, and front and back are separate so you can position them exactly as you want.

I’ve also added some hand and foot jewels from On a Lark, because I’m a sucker for hand/foot jewels…

FF2014: Fairytale

I took some photos at Fantasy Faire sim Hope’s Horizon the other day, and noticed that the white tree near the summit was labelled ‘RIP Daddy’. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that tears came to my eyes.

Sometimes, it’s little touches like this that remind us what Fantasy Faire is all about. There isn’t a single one of us who hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way, whether someone dear to us has been taken too soon, or is bravely battling the disease.

While the funds raised for the American Cancer Society are vital, the Faire also gives us a chance to remember and honour those we have lost to the disease, and be thankful for and celebrate loved ones who have pulled through.

It’s in this vein that Augurer of Luminary has included moving tributes with each of her RFL items and named the gowns for the women in question. I’m wearing Annette, a beautifully modest outfit, fit for a fairytale princess.

I’ve teamed it with House of Rain’s Melt necklace and earrings, and I’m sitting on {anc}’s Fairytalebook pose prop. (You have to see this in-world; my photos don’t do it justice, and it’s a mere 4 land impact.)

Tomorrow is the last day of Fantasy Faire; so visit while you still can.
