Summer’s End

I live at 9,000 feet in RL (which is about 2700 meters for those not in the US). Here fall comes early. We had a first tree start showing signs of changing in late July, and now there are quite a few aspens with yellow leaves. I love fall (and am not overly fond of summer) so this makes me really happy.

Because I began changing my sim to fall at the end of July I rented a little beach cottage on one of the Baja Norte sims. They’re really pretty and you don’t have to be a renter to get rezz rights. Just join the group (there is a fee, but I think it’s worth it). Respect that the houses have renters, but other than that the sims are open to explore! It’s a great place to do summery, beachy pics and I may keep mine year-round! It’s a reasonable rate and it’s kind of fun to have an SL “vacation” home, silly as that might sound!

Anyway, when I saw this dress from Neve I knew it would go perfectly with the cute print heels Ingenue released for August’s Collabor88 (they should be in the Mainstore soon, if they aren’t yet). I chose the ice cream cone ones (because, hello adorable!) and my general goal was to look like the embodiment of ice cream. My Magika hair color is courtesy the group gift Color Melt Palette hud which works with specific newer hair releases. The ice cream cone is from Half-Deer and the pose is Nantra’s. The straw hat is an automatically rezzed prop but you can remove it if you don’t need/want it for some reason. The lemon cushioned chairs from Half-Deer went nicely next to my Dust Bunny ice cream vending machine out on my deck.

Ice Cream Dreams

My closeup better shows off the adorable LAQ Cherry head, which I paired with Pink Fuel’s applier Melody. I am always so happy to see stores release for LAQ heads. They’re my favorite heads to use (LeLutka being my second choice) and while Mallory Cowen’s skins are utterly gorgeous, it’s fun to have more variety and options! Mochi Milena puts a lot of thought into her huds for her appliers and I love using them. They’re easy and fun and you get so many options. Plus, I’ve always felt adorable in Pink Fuel skins! I’m wearing a pair of glasses by Cae on my head. Also by Cae is my cute flamingo necklace.

At Summer's End

Full credits below! I’ll be leaving for vacation on Saturday, but when I get back I have some news to share! I’m pretty excited about it, and hope others will be too!

Surfacing

You may have heard there’s this little gacha event opening in two days. It’s called The Arcade. Yeah, I’m joking. You have to live under a virtual rock to not know about this one! The shopping guide doesn’t appear to be live yet, but check the site again soon because I’m sure it will be public before long.

In the meantime, check out Tableau Vivant’s awesome Arcade release. The Longfall hair, complete with Mermaid headdress, is ultra dramatic, and perfect for fantasy/RP type pics. I love the cascading waves. I decided to take the opportunity to actually be a mermaid. I found this beautiful mesh mermaid fin on Marketplace.

Surfacing

Here’s a different angle, to show you the beautiful headpiece. I’m wearing one of the rare versions, Kelp. My pretty skin is from Essences, available at The Dressing Room Fusion right now for just L$70 (note: I’ve edited the eyemakeup on this to be more a bit more dramatic, but the skin is stunning so go demo!).

Poseidon's Daughter

And because the title of the first pic (Surfacing) put Sarah McLachlan’s album of the same name in my head, I leave you with this.

This will probably be my last post I can squeeze in before we leave for New York/New Jersey… see ya on the flip side, and have fun at The Arcade when it opens! I’ll have to wait until I return.
