Fantastical Adventures

If you enjoy role play or fantasy in SL, there are multiple events going on right now that you should definitely not miss! First, I want to point out Fantasy Faire because this RFL event is for a great cause (to raise money for cancer research), and it ends on Sunday! There are a LOT of sims to this event, but fortunately the organizers have created a great page on their website that will help make navigation a bit easier.

The dress I am wearing in the picture below is from Luminary. This is the RFL donation color, and the dress is named Annette. Augurer of Luminary wrote “Why I Relay” notecards and put them in each demo box. Each outfit she did has the name of someone close to her, someone who has battled cancer. These personal stories really tugged at my heart, and the dress I’m wearing was named in honor of her cousin who has twice beaten breast cancer. I think this story resonated with me because in the past three years my grandmother’s beaten not one, but two separate types of breast cancer (and also a third cancer, a rare form of lung cancer). I plan to share why I relay soon, but in the meantime, please be sure to check out this fabulous event. Luminary is located on the Hopes Horizon sim.

The beautiful table set is Senza from Pixel Mode for The Garden’s Tuscan inspired edition, which ends on the 10th.

Sustenance

Also, from The Garden is this beautiful wine platter from Ispachi. I figured you can never have too much wine, fruit and cheese! The hair you see in both of these pics is from Calico for We ❤ Role-Play.

Wine & Cheese

The Fantasy Collective’s current round has a pirate theme. It’s a lot of fun, and it gave me an excuse to go buy this awesome dress from Junbug. You’ll find the hair from Tableau Vivant at the event, as well as the table and the grog and gold (which came from the O.M.E.N/Moi collaboration item). The food is from Ginger Line’s Farmers’ Snacks set, which is available at We ❤ Role-Play. It's We Love Role-Play's first birthday, and if you've not been to this event you're definitely missing out!

Feeling Slinky…

I have to admit, I wasn’t sure about mesh at first. I had all sorts of worries, but now? I can’t imagine SL without it. And lately, this is especially true when it comes to my SLink hands and feet. Well… for those of you who, like me, have been living in SLink feet, Shoetopia is a must-not-miss because SLink released a new foot style! The “high” foot is exactly as described… really, really high. For those shoes where you’re going to be teetering on the edge, or for those moments when you have to get way up on tiptoe to reach. And SLink also released three brand new styles that work with these awesome feet!

My favorites of the three are the SLink Demi boots and the Priscilla heels. I just absolutely love how unique and detailed the Demi boots are. They’re simply gorgeous, and the metal toecap has a hide option that makes them open toe boots! The Priscilla’s ankle straps imbues these seriously sexy shoes with a touch of the adorable and sweet. The lovely, soft pink you see in the pic below is Demi is blush. This shade is SLink’s donation item for Soles 4 Souls. I wanted to show the boots without the toecap, too, so I decided to share a second color, the lovely white. I’m wearing the Priscilla heels in black, and my pretty toenails are from Flair, and are available at the current edition of My Attic.

Slink Collage

I wanted to make sure to show a full body pic of the Priscilla heels, so you can see just how high “high” is! I’m wearing adorable mesh lingerie from Blacklace. I thought the sexy, yet darling ruffle on these knickers would be a perfect match to the Priscilla heel.

Slinky

It’s no secret that I love my Pink Fuel skins. One reason I love Mochi’s work so much is that she has clothing layers that let you change the skin’s body type. I recently made my av curvier, so I am using the “curvy” cleavage/body layers in these pics. So, since I was debuting my new shape in these pics, I knew I had to go to my Pink Fuel folder! I love that this is an option, and for those who like athletic or leaner builds, she has other options for those, too! I’d be overjoyed if some other skin creators would offer options like this, too. This lingerie is so pretty and comes in a gazillion colors (okay, maybe not quite that many) and fabrics. I will say be sure to try a demo. I normally wear a medium, but the medium was too small. So I created a version of my new shape that was a bit fuller figured and tossed on the large.

Teetering on the edge

Be sure to stop by Shoetopia to check out all the offerings, not only from SLink but so many others. The event runs through the 30th, so you only have a couple more days!

Seeing Red

I fell in love with this Starlet dress from Blacklace. It’s gorgeously textured and sexy as hell. Even better? Through Thursday of this week it’s only L$99! This is also a limited edition color, for their weekly TGIF special, so grab it while it lasts. To find the dress, use the TP board and go to the Gifts area. Sale event items are also near there!

I built the look around the dress. My hair is new from Truth. I desperately wanted a straight bob haircut as a child, not understanding that without hours of work such a look is impossible for a girl with natural curls. I was crushed when I learned this, and to this day I admire straight bobs of all lengths. My shoes are from Gos Boutique and are available at this month’s edition of FaMESHed. I love polka dots. If something has polka dots, the odds are high I will want it!

Seeing Red

I took advantage of this gorgeous red to show off one of the many, many nail huds available from Flair for SLink hands and feet. This is from set 33, and I love the detail. This also lets me show off my new engagement ring. I had a ring my husband bought me in 2009, when we were still new to SL. It had 5 diamonds, one to symbolize each year we’d been married in RL, since we got married in SL on our 5th RL anniversary. Unfortunately, like many engagement rings in SL, it was no copy and quite a while ago, I accidentally deleted it. When I mentioned it still made me sad, he bought me a new ring! This is from Exquisite Jewelry, and the side stones have multiple gem options. I went with ruby to match the red vibe! Also… I have to say this, because it’s kind of uhm, prominent in this picture… this Blacklace mesh dress creates one awesome ass! Which is cool, since my avatar’s butt is kind of uhm… lush… without mesh, and sometimes I think mesh makes it too flat.

Nails

Finally, I am so utterly in love with my new skin from Glam Affair. This is Cleo, and Glam Affair is part of the Cosmetics Fair, which opened this weekend and features lots of designers. One of the offerings from Glam Affair is a set of lipsticks for Cleo (I’ve tested them with a couple of other Glam skins and they seemed to work on them, too). These are available individually or in a fatpack. I grabbed a few, and I’m wearing one in this pic. I love semi-matte lips. This lipstick has just a touch of shine/shimmer to make your lips pop, and the deep, rich red is a lovely shade that will work on a variety of skin tones. My eyes are from the new Ascension line by IKON. I’ve been in a browns/greens kind of place lately, but this deep blue spoke to me and I thought it would work well with all the red.

Pose Fair 2013 – Last Call!

Pose Fair 2013 ends on Sunday April 14th! Be sure to stop by before it ends because there are so many goodies to be had, all in one place!

Here are a few more of my favorites. First, from Hopscotch this adorable multipose prop. It comes in a version for regular avs, but I chose the one designed for petites, because it really does seem like the perfect little home for a tiny fairy! I took this pic at Chakryn Forest, one of my favorite sims that allows rezzing. It’s a sim that has a fantasy feel, so I knew it would be perfect for this shot. My petite av is from Al Vulo. Isn’t she cute? She was a gift from my dear friend Lyssa, and I think this is the first time I’ve blogged as a petite!

Dreams of the Fairy

Speaking of Lyssa, I recruited her for this next pic. I fell in love with this Art Dummy/Flowey collaboration for Pose Fair, A Story To Tell A Friend. I just had to have it. Lyssa & I are both wearing items from Collabor88’s April round, too. Check the credits for specific details on that! I took this pic in my cute little Funky Junk schoolhouse, and if you click through to the pic, I have put notes on the various decor items so you know where they are from. If you’d like to know more about any piece, just ask me in comments (here or on Flickr).

Girl Talk

My next pic features another of Hopscotch’s Pose Fair releases, from the Standing Pretty pack. I fell in love with this Magika hair. It’s edgy and sassy, and what can I say… I felt rebellious that night. So much so I even bought the dip dye or ombre or whatever the hell ya wanna call it pack of colors. This beautiful suede dress is from Blacklace, and I must admit, I felt pretty sexy wearing it. My jewelry is from Cae, which I thought added a touch of elegance to my rebellion.

Seeing Green

In the next pic, I’m using one of Adorkable’s Bam poses, also from Pose Fair. For the full body shot, I added my Angelique heels from Gos Boutique. Very sexy, and they definitely suited my mood. Oh, also… did you notice my hands? I finally bought a pair of SLink’s mesh hands. It took me a while because since I change skins so much, it’s a lot of tinting. And I hate tinting. But now Siddean, of SLink has released developer kits and lots of skin creators are making appliers for it, and there are now so many nail polish add ons, too.

Rebel with jewels

There are just so many great stores participating in the Pose Fair, and you definitely should check it out before it ends!

More Skin Fair Previews!

I have two more Skin Fair 2013 previews for you. First up is the gorgeous, glamorous new skin from Izzie’s. Asia comes in multiple gorgeous tones, and it was hard for me to decide which I wanted to feature. Ultimately I went with the one designed for gingers! I’m not usually a “ginger,” as my preferred shade is more of a blood red (in the case of Truth, that’s even the name of my shade!). But I’ve loved the Pumpkinpie shade from Truth’s Fades pack since he debuted the Fades, and rarely have a reason to wear it. So, Ginger Lucie makes an appearance below!

I wanted to play up the glamour of this skin. Like all Izzie’s skins, you get a ton of eye shadow and lip options, and Asia also comes with funky, dramatic eyeliner choices. I am wearing the Brown lipstick and eye shadow options. Sometime last year I bought this sexy shorts romper from Hucci when it was at Collabor88. I’ll be honest, it shows more skin than I usually do, and I haven’t worn it, except in an Embody ad, since I bought it. But it struck me as perfect for showing off the gorgeous new Bejeweled jewelry set from Cae, which is now available at FaMESHed. Like all the sets from Cae, this one is texture change. Both the jewels and metal have multiple options, but I went with silver & emeralds. What’s really cool about this necklace, though, is that you also have the option of hiding some of the chains, so it’s really versatile. I feel like royalty or a celebrity wearing this set!

Dripping In Emeralds

Here’s a close up of the gorgeous Asia… so, so pretty. Soft, as is the hallmark of all Izzie’s skins, but also elegant and sophisticated. Still, if you wear it “bare,” without makeup add ons, it’s also fresh and casual. If you like your skins versatile, definitely check out this one (or any of Izzie’s skins!).

Izzie's - Asia - Skin Fair Preview

Next up… I knew the talented London Dailey of Pink Outfitters and The House of London made gorgeous clothes, but I didn’t realize she made skins, too! So when I saw her new Fresh FX Chanel, I knew I needed to try it. I love, love, love the unique shape of the lips on this skin. I went for one with dramatic, smokey eye makeup. I’d been struggling to figure out what hair to wear, but Truth saved the day by releasing Teddy just in time. Love the glamorous, messy, bedhead look of this style!

Fresh FX - Chanel for Skin Fair

To show you just how talented London is, here’s her Elle dress for FaMESHed this month! I paired it with the Plum Patent Marilyn sandals from Gos Boutique. I’ll admit, I might’ve used the hint of purple in this dress as an excuse to buy purple shoes, but really, can you blame me? Also, let me just say this… I love side boob. Cleavage is great, and it certainly is sexy, but it’s so much more expected. The high neckline and open back of this dress, with the hint of side boob just screams “elegantly sexy” to me. On a final note, pictures do not do the details of this dress justice, so definitely go demo it at FaMESHed for yourself.

Blue Mood, Purple Shoes

More from Skin Fair soon…

Last Call! RFL Christmas Expo!

This is the last day of the RFL Christmas Expo. If you haven’t been yet, definitely try to get there! It’s such a great cause, and it’s a lovely build with tons of goodies.

This first pic features an old fashioned Christmas tree from the Expo and an adorable pose I got from the Adorkable Arcade gacha! The tree is by Hanaya, and like the trees of years gone by it features lovely lit candles. Unlike the trees of years gone by, there’s no fire danger from this one, and the tree skirt is texture change! The adorable kitty bed Winter is sleeping on is one of the items in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar, and it’s from A.D.D. Andel! My presents, aside from the Adorkable props, are all from What Next.

For Me?

The With Love From Hunt also continues, and this cute chalkboard is evolve’s gift for that hunt. The Winter Holiday Side Table is something I found from End of Daze at the RFL Expo. I thought it was crazy cute and just had to put it out! Especially if you like your Christmasy things to have a more modern, clean look, this is a must have.

Christmas with love

Next, if you feel you need a festive and fun holiday skin, Aeva has several absolutely gorgeous ones out… and best of all? They’re only L$100 each! This one is Yves, and I just thought it was stunning. I will be blogging more of these holiday skins ASAP.

Aeva Yves Holiday Skin

This is another pic featuring an Adorkable pose you can get from The Arcade gacha! I thought it was so cute, and I decided to wear this Sakide corset dress from the F R O S T event to create a cute, sexy and playful look. The hair is a relatively new release from Exile, and I loved the flowers (they are texture change, but you can wear it without them, too)!

Helper

I hope your having a wonderful holiday season!
