Bad Medicine

So, I intended to do this post before Halloween, but I had minor surgery on Halloween and last week was sort of a blur. Still, it seems an appropriate post when you’re post-op!

I really wanted to show off the naughty/nice nurse costumes from Blacklace. So I grabbed someone to help me out, and of course she had to be the naughty nurse! Our patient/victim is my alt. He looks pretty scared, doesn’t he? Well, can you blame him?! She’s trying to kill him.

Hey, we don’t kill the patients!

Bad Medicine

More from me soon… still a bit dazed and confused (yay pain meds!).

Bubblegum & Sass

So, since Candy Fair has a lot of fun clothing, skins and makeup I wanted to try a completely different look for a change. I’m using Axix’s Sweet Divan prop/pose set from Candy Fair in these pics. There are two versions. One is decorated, and one is not. The cushions and sofa are all texture change, too! My headband is also from Candy Fair, by 1 Hundred. It comes in lots of pretty colors perfect for your inner candy princess.

Something Sweet

My skin is from Birdy for Candy Fair, and it is this skin with the pink eyebrows that inspired my blog titled. I paired the skin with one of the gacha lip glosses from essences, also at Candy Fair. This is one of the rare versions, and I thought it was just so much fun!

Bubblegum & Sass

My top is part of Sakide’s Candy Fair outfit. I paired it with these cute new shorts from BOOM. The adorable wooden sign on the wall is one of the Beach Street items for Candy Fair.

Autumn Party!

So I have some adorable things to share with you. Get used to seeing food on my blog for a while. First off, I have this adorable set from floorplan for the current – and nearly over (translation: Hurry up and go!) – round of Collabor88. The table and stools and candy apples are all from floorplan’s Collabor88 ensemble, and the entire set is adorable and perfect for fall. The cupcakes are from O.M.E.N. and they were part of their gacha at the recent Season Story event. My plate is from kitchenette, which is part of vespertine. So is the cake stand! I set up my party on the porch of my Trompe Loeil treehouse, which I’ve made my autumn home (more pics of that to come).

My fuzzy sweater is from ISON and is also at Collab, as are the shorts. I love the detail on this sweater. It looks so snuggly, and it comes in a ton of colors.

Autumn Party

I wanted to do another pic to show off the new cocoa & coffee cart on the go from What Next. This is SO cute. You click on it, and it dispenses so many different drink options! It’s hard to choose! This skin is a brand new essences release called Aime, and uff. It’s just adorable. Seriously. I keep telling everyone I look sweet and innocent (and keep hearing so often how this is a lie… hmm). This gorgeous hair updo is a new release from Truth, and has optional flower attachments.

Cocoa or Coffee?

Full credits down yonder. Stay tuned for more from me very soon. I have lots of goodies to show you from Candy Fair!

Flirty Friday

I decided I should take another pass through Collabor88 before it ends in less than 2 weeks. I know Collabor88 was “born” in August, and I’m hoping they’ll be doing a special birthday bash edition. Fingers crossed! In the meantime, there is plenty to be found at the current edition, and it’s really one of my favorite themes ever. Soft, dreamy, romantic colors prevail, and the flirty charm just captivated me.

I fell in love with this top from The Secret Store. It comes in some really fun colors and patterns, but I’ve been in need of some more neutral pieces, so I went with the white. It may be basic, but with the lovely lacey pattern, it’s far from boring! I snagged another pair of the cute SLink add on heels from BOOM, too. I had the red, and decided the white pair was in order! My skirt is also from Collab. I liked the versatility of this piece. It’s sexy, but cute. The leather gives it a bit of edge, and also means it won’t be out of place come September. Don’t hit me! I admit it… I’ve been thinking fall in my fashion lately. Brace yourselves! It’s coming to my blog soon. But for now… oh, by the way my cute pose is another from Pretense for Love Donna Flora. I’ll have lots more from that event soon, too. Stay tuned!

Black & White Summer

My gorgeous skin is also from Collabor88, and it’s another version of Glam Affair’s gorgeous Lulu. I admit to possible bias with this skin since I’ve had more than one person give me the nickname Lulu in SL. This gorgeous hair is from SLink for Hair Fair. Isn’t the ginger shade pretty? I know I usually do a more true red, but lately gingers have been speaking to me, too.

Lulu Belle

I fell in love with the Trompe Loeil shower at Collabor88. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and although I am not using the official SL viewer, for those who are it is materials enabled. I look forward to the day Firestorm has materials, but using the official viewer makes me want to rip my hair out strand by strand, so for now, no materials for this chick! Still, it’s exciting to know I have products that will become even better whenever I do have a viewer I can handle that has materials enabled! I’ll just wait here in my beautiful garden shower for that day to come.

Waiting in the garden

You don’t see it well, but my skin in the above pic is the Pink Fuel skin Doll for Love Donna Flora. Not only is this skin gorgeous and supporting an awesome cause, it also is an incredible deal. For L$300 you get SLink appliers (hand and feet, worn here) and appliers for Lolas, Lush and Puffy breasts. Plus, there are dark and light brow options. The stunning hair I am wearing is one of Exile’s offerings at Hair Fair. I loved how romantic and lush these locks were!

Definitely be sure to check out all of these events. Remember, Hair Fair ends on Sunday. I linked to the Seraphim blog post because they’ve sorted their gallery by sim, and you’ll find slurls to all four sims there!

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.

Essences - Cho (Collabor88)

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!

In Profile

Hair Fair 2013 comprises of four sims full of wonderful hair goodness! You can check out Seraphim’s gallery here, to help you with your shopping, or you can join the Hair Fair Demo Group in world to get demos to help you make choices without the inevitable lag of a crowded event. Hair Fair’s organizers have done a lot to help reduce lag, but please be patient and remember that any crowded SL event will have some degree of lag! Also, please remember this is a charity event, one that benefits children who have lost their hair due to medical conditions/treatments. Visit the Wigs For Kids website to learn more about this awesome charity.

More from Hair Fair, Collab and other events soon!

Cinema!

I was very excited to have the chance to take a sneak peek at the Cinema venue. This build is possibly the most impressive, beautiful, richly detailed of any Second Life event I’ve been to, and for that reason in this first post I am sharing just pictures I took of the build.

Box Office

The snack bar is really amazing. Click the menu to get wearable props, each with the names of the event sponsors. This was such a creative, cute way to give those sponsors their due!

Snack Bar

Snacks 1

Snacks 2

All of the stores can be found in the various themed theatres. You’ll find Sci Fi, Romance, XXX, Film Noir, Horror, Action/Adventure and Musical/Fantasy. In other words, there’s truly something at Cinema to appeal to every taste. Then there is the adorable theater for the last breedable to hit the grid, Fennux. These critters, inspired by fennec foxes, are seriously cute. But don’t take my word for it… check out this guy, who was taking in a film as I walked by.

Fennux

I had tremendous fun exploring all the stores, and I have snagged so many amazing things I can’t wait to share with you. But alas, ever post must end… so those goodies will have to wait for another post!
