Feeling rebellious

I have a confession to make. Whenever I try to do something edgy or punk-like in SL I feel a bit like a poser. I like punk music, but I’m just so not punk in my style in either world, generally speaking. That said, I was feeling a bit rebellious last week and decided to take advantage of that when I was styling this look. My top and bento compatible gloves are both by Fetch and you’ll find them at Rewind. My Catwa applier by [theSkinnery] is also available at Rewind. My pants are from Just Because, who is a guest at Collabor88’s birthday round. Wearing red and purple together was something I did in the 80s when I was a tween and it made my family crazy because they said they didn’t match. Not long after it became trendy to wear those colors together, which helped shut them up a bit. But I didn’t care. I did my own thing, so in that sense I was always a rebel! My adorable bow pumps are from Ingenue, also at Collabor88. The look paired nicely with the Anxiety %ugh! scene currently available at N21 for just L$90. This is a new-to-me store and I love this prop scene. This type of product is great for shooting blog posts when you don’t have the time to set up a compatible scene or find a good location. My pose is by Elephante Poses, and is another Rewind release.

Here’s a close up that shows off my adorable belly ring (rigged!!!) from
Maddict that is at Collabor88, as well as this dazzling chrome French manicure from Alme that is available at Whimsical. I have never once used the pointed nails on my Lara body but this manicure and look just seemed to beg for them! Plus, you get a better look at the Fetch gloves. The metal parts and bows are color change.

No Angel

Finally, a closer look at the Chai applier from [theSkinnery]. I really love this applier and I kept thinking that with the shape I made for it my avi resembled Jennifer Lawrence a bit. I am wearing it on the Catwa Koura bento head. I added an eyeshadow from Milla Rasmuson’s Fire collection (which I blended down a bit with the Catwa hud), which is a Cosmetic Fair release. You also get a closer look at my Truth hair, which is the VIP group gift for August. Like all of Truth’s newest releases, Ellie includes a style hud and gives you a ton of options, including bobbie pins (not visible with the style I selected here). Truth’s VIP gifts have been amazing, so if you’re not part of that group it’s definitely one worth the cost of joining! My eyes are from Buzzeri’s Shift collection. When I last checked these hadn’t been added to the Mainstore yet, but hopefully they will be soon (I need more colors!).

Cosmetic Fair ends August 31st. Rewind runs through September 10th. The big birthday bash for Collab ends September 6th. Whimsical runs through September 18th.

Slayers don’t get holidays…

So if you haven’t been to Geeks ‘N’ Nerds, it closes on the 10th… it’s time to get go get your geek on.

I’m getting mine on here, with some help from Fishy Strawberry, Elephante Poses, Cheeky Pea, ieQED, Wasabi Pills, Culprit and Brixley. The curves on this Fishy Strawberry outfit are killer, but I did want to mention something. I noticed the large (my normal size) was really big so I tried the medium (seen here). If you demo this, you might find you need to do the same, particularly if you’re normally a large. The medium fits perfectly, except I switched my SLink hands to the medium size as well, in order to keep them from poking out around the cuffs. Also, see the kitty on the Roomba like vacuum cleaner? That’s from Culprit and it’s called a “Prrmbah.” It actually will “clean” your room for you and it’s pretty hilarious.

Slayers don't get holidays

Hurry up and TP to Geeks ‘N’ Nerds before it ends on Wednesday!

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!

Getting my geek on

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair opened this week, and this is an event that every geek/nerd simply must visit! There is something for nerds and geeks of all types… and the build for the event is very cute and easy to navigate (and I say that as someone who gets lost at pretty much every event ever). I’m definitely a serious geek/nerd and usually walk around in a group tag that says “Proud Dork.” So this fair was just about custom made for me (and people like me!).

I’m wearing the jumper of a dress from SySy’s for this event, along with eyeliner from Mons that’s also at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. My awesome boots are from fri.day. fri.day is a part of the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, but these boots are a Shoetopia release! You still have a few days to head over to Shoetopia and grab all the gorgeous shoes. Remember, this is a charity event, so every designer has out at least one 100% donation item, and the charity, Soles 4 Souls is working to help, among others, the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. This is a way you can do your own part to help a great cause, while having fun shopping, so do be sure to check it out before it ends on the 30th!

My Favorite Dorks

The build I used in these pics is the Neva Captain’s House from Scarlet Creative for the current round of Collabor88. It’s a really unique, quirky build and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I plan to take some more pics of it soon, but in the meantime, do take a minute to visit the demo at Collabor88! It’s a not-to-be-missed home for anyone who loves the unusual.

Most of the decor items are from the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. You will find the full credits at the bottom of this post, with the ones available at the fair tagged accordingly. My cute pose, complete with prop, is from Kuro In Motion. It’s not a fair item, but seemed appropriate for the post!

To those who celebrate, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! More from me soon.

Candy Fair 2013

Candy Fair 2013 opened on Friday, and it’s three sims full of candy-inspired creations. There is a lot of cute to be had at this event, so definitely check it out!

I love the Kuro Candy Kitchen that you can find at the event. The kitchen and bar are both part of it, and there are tons of gorgeous accessories available for it. The mugs, cups, bowls, plates and flowers in the picture below are all a part of this set. The stool I am sitting on is also a part of the kitchen, as is the trash bin in the corner. Many of these items are either texture change or come in multiple colors. Oh, the cute candy wall art is from Collage, and it’s also at Candy Fair. I set up my candy kitchen in the Scarlet Creative Autumn Reclaim Store/Open Home. This was part of last month’s Collabor88, but hopefully will be available at the mainstore because it’s really cute.

Choices

The yummy candy on the bar is from Marmelade. These pieces are not just pretty decorations! They dispense goodies! Here’s a closer look. Don’t they look delicious?

Sweet Treats

My cute romper is another Candy Fair find, this time from Osito. My hair is Vida, a recent Truth release, which will also make an appearance in my next post, but in a different color. I know, shocking! The yummy looking little cupcake hat on my head is appropriately from yumyums. The pose, which includes the gumballs I am so badly juggling, is from Infiniti Poses, and is also at Candy Fair. As is my cute lollipop necklace from tea.s and it comes in a lot of adorable colors. This skin is just one of so many available at Candy Fair. This is Donna from WoW Skins.

So much for my career as a juggler

More from Candy Fair soon! In the meantime, go check it out for yourself!
