Enchantment

Enchantment is a fair tale lover’s dream event. This second edition features items inspired by the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and there are so many wonderful things to be had. In this post, I will feature a few of the goodies you can grab at this event!

First up, this stunning gown from Miamai. The gorgeous red gown (appropriately) has a hood, and I love the lining detail inside the hood.

Red's Solitude

I paired this gown with the lovely Essences skin Harper, which is at The Dressing Room Fusion’s current edition. This version of Harper includes blonde brow and no brow options. Because I really love the style of the brows on this skin, I’m wearing the blonde, which I think are dark enough to work for gingery and lighter brown shades, too. This pose is also available at Enchantment, from Infiniti Poses. The Better To See You pack comes with a hud for SLink nails, naturally in several shades of red. However, here I wearing Flair nail polish.

Hands

Next up, I’ve combined Enchantment items with some items from other fantasy themed events currently happening. My gorgeous wolf is from Enchantment, and is worn as an attachment that then walks with you. It’s available in multiple colors, but I was drawn to the white. My boots are from Half+Deer, also for Enchantment. They come in multiple color options, all of which include a hud so you can customize things like the soles and laces to better suit your needs. The dress is from Sweet Poison for the Fantasy Room, and comes with a hud that includes three color options – all for just L$70, I might add. I decided that after a hunt, I’d probably be grimy, so I took to Marketplace and found some dirt tattoos from BINA. I will caution, though. In the description for these tattoos they say they are “SLink friendly.” I mistakenly took that to mean they came with appliers for SLink hands and feet, but they do not. Despite what the description says, to me it looked weird without dirt on my hands, too. So I bought Adam N Eve’s dirt, sand and blood SLink tattoo appliers. They include a hud for the nails, which is pretty cool, too!

Searching our hearts for so long

This skin is Essences’ Song. I wanted a bare skin that felt as if it had a bit of… raw nobility. Honestly, I’ll admit it. I was going for a sort of grown up Arya Stark look. And yes, I know Arya’s not a redhead. It’s called creative license, people! My dreads are from Tableau Vivant, and they include versions for both men and women. The crown is by tea.s for We Love Roleplay.

No one can tell us we're wrong

Finally, I fell in love with this dress and cardigan from Beetlebones. They come in a variety of colors, but I went for the traditional red for the cardigan and a grey print for the dress. My boots are fri.day’s Enchantment offering, and they’re crazy cute. The pose is another from Infiniti Poses’ Enchantment collection, and my hair is a recent Exile release.

Nowhere to hide

Definitely be sure to stop by Enchantment before it ends at the end of the month! Not only are all of these goodies (and more) available exclusively at the event, the event design itself is stunning.

The Arcade SL

You’d pretty much have to be living under a rock in SL to not have heard about The Arcade by now… this gacha festival has been one of the more popular SL events in recent memory. Even a full week after opening, I still had trouble tping in, as the region was full! I’ve shared a few pieces from this event in various recent posts, but this is my first dedicated to the event. There is really just so much awesomeness to be had at this event, so be sure to check it out. They’ve even created a handy shoppers guide, which you can check out here.

I must start off this post with the adorable Beetlebones hamster avatar that has been all over Flickr. I was lucky enough to get the fawn one from a friend. I decided to wear my Auxiliary ears, because, well… just so much cute! I curled up on my stuffed giraffe from NiNight Creations and we chatted about our day.

Tell me about your day

Because there’s just so much great stuff to be had, I decided to try my hand at a collage style pic. In this pic you can see my items from Floorplan… the cubby and the clock. On top of the cubby is my Survivor piggy bank from Sway’s. Some might find the white one boring, but I liked her! The adorable ironing board and the piles of clothing are from LISP. The clothes self rezz when you pic a pose. The basket of laundry is also one of the items from LISP, as is the cute rug you can just catch a glimpse of in the ironing shot. The two cameo style pieces on the cubby are the packaging from the Noodles fairytale necklaces. They are so cute, and you can mod them… and as adorable as the necklaces are, I think I’m a bit like a toddler on these. I like the packaging even better! You can use them to decorate, and how fun is that! My mesh robe is from Stickfigure Home… and it’s cozy and perfect for laundry day, don’t you think?

The Arcade

Glam Affair has some really fun skins at The Arcade, and I got 07… which is sort of vampire pale and very goth. And so very not my usual look, but it’s just stunning. I decided to depart from my usual red hair for a special occasion and paired the skin with the new Stevie hair from Truth in Raven. My eyes are from the new Kaleido series by IKON, and they’re really cool.

Roza 07 - The Arcade

I love this mesh tank from Mon Cheri’s gacha, and I paired it with a skirt I snagged during the recent sale at Evolve. I love my Gos Triumph boots, and I knew they’d compliment the look just perfectly.

Edgy Arcade

I will likely have another post of things from The Arcade. The event runs through October 15th, so there’s still time to check it out!

Zenith, Aura & Izzie’s – Oh, my!

I have so much to share. It’s insane, really. I’ve been managing, despite our craptastic internet connection, to get some looks together and some pictures taken. I apologize, though, because the venue is limited to my sky platform. I love taking “on location” shots in SL, but right now, it’s just so not an option. Still, I think any pics are better than none, especially with so much amazing fashion to share. And, the good news is… we’re getting a new ISP in a week, so then I can get a bit more creative again. Fortunately, the Vintage Fair runs nearly this entire month (it ends August 29th), so there is plenty of time left for me to share my favorites! On that note… let’s get to it!

I’m starting with pics I finished a few days ago, but haven’t had the chance the blog until now. This adorable mesh dress is from Zenith. I look at this one and think “classic” or “timeless.” I paired it with a very vintage, very 30s movie star skin from Agnes Finney and seriously adorable hair from Vanity Fair. The poses are from a mesh keyhole prop by Hopscotch. I loved this prop as soon as I saw it. It’s quirky and cute – and since it’s simple, it rezzed despite my crappy internet, so double yay!

Sassy Beauty

The shoes I chose for this are the Khan heels from Ingenue. Ingenue is part of the Vintage Fair, too… I’ll be blogging one of the VF offerings from that store at a later date. I’ve had these shoes for a while now, but finally got around to wearing them for a post!

Through the keyhole

My other look for this pose features one of the sponsors of Vintage Fair, Aura. For those who don’t know, Aura and Illusory are merging into one store called Auxiliary, and for Vintage Fair we get a look at some of this new collaborative effort. These Luna Jeans & Vintage Tube Top are awesome and come in a ton of colors.

Aura & Izzie's

I paired them with the 80s rounded nails from Izzie’s, and the 80s Eliza skin, also from Izzie’s.

Aura & Izzie's 2

I love this skin. Like all of Izzie’s skins, it’s so soft and pretty, yet this 80s version has a bit of edge. This time I’m wearing the “yellow” makeup option.

August 2012

That’s all for now… more asap!

Casual Fun

I love coldLogic. I would own everything in that store, in nearly every color… except, well. I like being married, and I suspect Rad would object to a spending spree of that magnitude! But I knew I needed one of these cute sagal tops when they came out. I don’t tend to wear a lot of red (in either world), but I liked the tomato shade a lot, so I snagged it. I know a lot of people have abandoned all non-mesh clothing, but I am by no means one of them. These capri jeans are from Kyoot and were part of Collabor88 some months back, and I just love the texture work so much. Oh, also, Kyoot is currently having a huge sale where a lot of the store is 50L.

Casual Friday

I paired the look with the Milly hair from the latest Truth release. The clips are texture change using a hud, and this hair is too cute. I think it has the benefit of being simple enough for casual fun, while being versatile enough to be worn with a dressier look, too! I decided it was time for a new profile pic while I was at it.

July 2012

Later that night, I had dinner with my baby sister Isley. I snagged this sushi set from Rassasy Foods, and it’s really awesome. It comes with the table and also with place mats that rezz the meal, so you could use your own table instead if you prefer. The table is surrounded by cute cushions for kneeling while you eat!

Dinner Time

Hope you’re having a great weekend! More soon.

The Fanciful Truth…

It’s no secret that I love Truth hair. I’ve been wearing it for over 3 years now, and I recently counted and discovered that just on my main av I have 250+ styles. *insert blush here* Yeah, I know. It’s a lot of hair, and it’s not counting the styles alts have for use in our store vendor ads. But I can’t help it! First off, no one else that I know of who makes hair in SL is as prolific as Truth Hawks. He does near weekly releases, which is just brutal temptation for a hair addict like me! Second, the styles from Truth just suit me so well. Lucie might not look like the RL me, but I am the same person, no matter which world you meet me in. It’s hard for me to deviate from a certain comfort zone because of that, and so I am drawn to things I’d wear or want in RL. Anyway, when I heard from my sister Alianna that they were accepting applications for Truth bloggers, I knew I had to apply. I was beyond excited to be approved! It’s probably a bit silly to some, the idea of being so excited over virtual hair, but yeah. It totally made my day… and I was both elated and honored.

I fell in love with the latest releases instantly and I will be blogging Milly later… but first, Kara. This style is so romantic and pretty, and, as it turned out, this style was absolutely perfect for a look I’d put together for a lovely birthday ball I attended last night. Guests were asked to come in medieval themed clothing, and I adore the styles of that period, so this was a fun look to put together. I knew right away that I’d want to go to Evie’s Closet to find a dress. The Cariad gown was perfect, and the version I chose features two of my most favorite colors… purple & a teal(ish) blue!

Fanciful Truth

I paired the gown and the hair with this lovely wreath, also from Evie’s Closet… it has a hud and it’s so customizeable! It’s very cool. The flowers and leaves can be tinted separately, which is what I did for this look, but it also looks really pretty all solid.

After the ball

I took these pics at Da Vinci Gardens. It’s very pretty, with a lot of different settings, and I knew there would be a perfect one for this look.

I want to thank the Oleander family for inviting me to Peyton’s party. I had such a fabulous time and wound up with a great, fun look I probably never would’ve had a reason to wear – or blog! – otherwise.

Flight of the Fairy

Alice Project Infinity hair comes with this absolutely awesome mini-hud. It’s color change, and has sections you can change. It even has a tint hud. I decided to show the flexibility of this hud by deviating from my usual red hair. But what color to go with when there are so many options?

I decided I wanted something wild and unnatural. Then I remembered I had this cute Ivy Nymph costume from SSD (at One Voice), and I decided to be a little fairy. I bought the adorable, versatile Helga hair at Hair Fair last week… and I decided to go with a baby blue with touches of mint green, to match the Ivy Nymph details. Rad made these Aerial poses a while ago, but I haven’t ever had much of a cause to use them, until now! I tossed on one of my teen shapes, and the beautiful Georgie skin from Al Vulo (also at One Voice).

The question then became where to shoot the pics. I wanted someplace fanciful and pretty. I remembered I was with my friend on a sim called Chakryn Forest recently, and I returned and, sure enough, it was the perfect place! Here are the pics from my midnight flight of fancy…

Alice Project is on the Flower Sim at the Hair Fair. One Voice is here, and will remain open until 11:59 pm SLT on Sunday, July 22nd! So hurry, you’re almost out of time!

One Voice is open!!!

One Voice has officially opened! There have been a few technical issues, and many of the designers will be setting up their items in their mainstores, too. Please be patient as they resolve the issues. Trust me… it’s an event you don’t want to miss! Not only is it awesome and inspiring to see so many designers come together to help a fellow creator in need, there are just so many goodies to be had! The sim is also just so pretty and peaceful, and the organizers did a great job laying out all the vendors! Salome Strangelove has also been working hard on a directory of stores participating, so you can check this out, too. Here’s a pic of the sim, near the landing point, that I took last night.

One Voice Sim

I’ve been taking pics like mad, and I don’t want to be too wordy so you can just get to them all. Credits will be at the end as always…

Summer Gaze

Harvest Purple Moon

One Song

On a final note for this post (there will be more posts and there are more pics are already up on flickr)… our voices, when joined as one in chorus, are stronger, and our message becomes harder to ignore. 🙂
