Collab meets Hair Fair

I was in the middle of shooting pics of an utterly adorable outfit, skin and some accessories I snagged at Collabor88 when the lovely Irischka Hotshot of Iren passed me her Hair Fair pack. I fell so in love that I changed hairstyles mid shoot. It’s actually appropriate because the hair I had been wearing, in the pic below, is one of Exile’s Hair Fair 2012 styles!

Snow Red

I utterly love this dress from Tres Blah for Collabor88. I may have to buy some more colors before the round ends in August. If you haven’t gotten to the July round yet, you really need to because this round is absolutely superb. It might be my favorite ever! I have lots of goodies, far more than just in this post, so stay tuned for more Collab/Hair Fair combos from me in the coming week!

I thought this Iren hair was so wonderfully romantic, and it fit so nicely with the Midsummer Night’s Dream theme Collab has happening this round. A Midsummer Night’s Dream happens to be my favorite Shakespearean play, btw, so it’s not really a surprise I loved this round so. These shoes are SLink add ons from BOOM, and oh, they’re lovely! I knew when I saw the blue dress with the red belt I had to have it, and the red shoes. I have to confess, I feel a bit like a redheaded modern day Snow White in this outfit.

Collab Meets Hair Fair

I have been a fan of Essences skins for a while now, but I think the one they did for Collabor88 is my favorite one yet! Her name is Cho, and she’s just utterly adorable. I will be honest, since I am not one to deny my SL vanity anyway (hell, it’s in my blog tagline)… I kept saying “OMG I AM SO CUTE!” whilst wearing this skin.

Just as I finished shooting this look, I was given previews of Miamai’s Hair Fair releases. This one caught my eye because of how dramatic it is, so I decided to throw it on and strike a pose to show y’all. I was apparently too lazy to put on a shirt, though. Don’t get too excited… I may be shirtless, but I’m still relatively decent! This hair is really more about the hat, and you can even hide the hair so it’s a unisex style. There’s a hud and you can change the color of the ribbon and the beads, too. It’s a versatile style! Though you can’t see the gorgeous face, my skin is one of Glam Affair’s Collabor88 releases (a better view to come soon). It’s a stunning skin, and you’ll definitely not want to miss out on it!

Summerfest Last Call!

Summerfest is an awesome event that is nearly over. You have just a few short hours left to go grab some great goodies, including the oh-so-popular Ohmai pet otters (and otter avs) you may have been seeing all over Flickr. I’m just gonna shut up and post pics ’cause you need to hurry and get there NOW!

My adorable sunglasses are from Noodles for Summerfest. I shot this pic on the beach at the event, where the adorable otters are hanging out near the water’s edge. My outfit is from another event that ends this weekend, My Attic. It’s only L$95 for both the tank and the jeans and there are a bunch of great colors.

It's all about the otters

My skin is also from Summerfest. It’s Glam Affair’s Summer. I’ll have a better shot of that skin later in this post. But first, a quick closeup of my nails and the adorable Noodles charm bracelet from The Arcade.

Summer Vacation

Also from My Attic, this adorable dress from SySy’s. It comes in so many colors your head will spin and you’ll have a hard time choosing. My jewelry is from Handverk, also at My Attic, as is the hair from Exile and the nails for my SLink hands (from Flair). My adorable peep toe shoes are a SLink add on shoe for the medium feet from Ingenue at Collabor88.

Pretty In Peach

Okay, and here’s the closeup of Summer I promised. The freckles on the face are just so perfectly adorable.

Summer by Glam Affair

Be sure to go check out My Attic, The Arcade and Summerfest before they end this weekend! Start with Summerfest, since it ends tonight!

Curtain Call…

Cinema’s last days are upon us! This awesome event is open through Halloween… so you have 2 days left to shop it. Here are some more of my favorite looks from the event.

First, for the Halloween horror lovers… Auxiliary has two really cute tops. One is the bunny hoodie with a sugar skull type motif. I paired that with bloody jeans from Evolve (also at Cinema), and my beloved Izzie’s Asylum skin. This Haunted House Ride was really cool. It has many rooms based on popular horror films, and since you just sit and get driven through it, it’s low impact. :p

Haunted Ride

I took this next pic in the cemetery at T Town. I love that sim, and this was the perfect location. This top is also from Auxiliary, and seemed perfect for Zombie Hunting since it features some walking dead. I can’t wait for the regular release of this top. I am crazy in love with it. I paired it with cute hair from Aushka, Gos’s recently released Equestrian boots and jeans. Who says you can’t be glam while hunting the undead?

Zombie Hunter

Speaking of glam… this dress from SySy’s for Cinema is just stunning. It comes in a wide variety of colors, but I felt like a wedding cake topper in the pretty, frothy, white. I paired it with this elegant ponytail from a recent Truth release, and the softly elegant Fuyu skin from Izzie’s.

Cake Topper

I also snagged this Shakespeare cameo set from Caroline’s at Cinema. As a future English teacher, I just had to have this. It was unique, and I love chokers in general.

Shakespeare In Love

One thing I love about events like Cinema is the chance to discover a new store. I’d never heard of Volstead before, but oh, there was so much there to love. I have other items from this store I plan to blog in the future, but this little chemise was one I had to get into this final Cinema post. Unlike most mesh items, this piece uses glitch layers instead of alphas. The result is subtly sheer and very seductive. The detail work on this item really astounds me. I’m very impressed by the texturing.

Little Blue Chemise

Finally… this is a closeup of the Femme Fatale series Alyx skin from Pink Fuel. Though not for Cinema, I couldn’t resist pairing this dramatic, sexy skin with my little blue chemise. You can find this skin at The Costume Ball event. I am eagerly awaiting the full release of the Alyx line. I really love this skin!

Femme Fatale

More from me soon. Due to RL illness, I’m late (yep, again) with my final RYCC post! It’s coming, though… as soon as I figure out what to wear.
