Grandmother’s Room

So, if you haven’t been to Enchantment yet you still have time. This fairytale inspired event runs through February. One of the awesome items you can grab there is this beautiful bed from Alouette. The sewing items are part of Dysfunctional Design’s new Fabric Shop for We Love Roleplay!

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.

Nostalgia

Today is my 5th rezz day. I’m kind of shocked by the fact that I lasted three weeks in SL, let alone five years. But I’m so grateful I did, because I have made some incredible friends during this journey. There’s my BFF Rosa. We’ll be friends 5 years on February 4th, and I can tell her absolutely anything. I know she’ll keep all my secrets safe. There’s my “forever” sister, my fellow “Posh Orphan,” Isley who is like… some freaky extension of myself in all the best ways. All of my awesome Plurk friends, who are always ready to give hugs and support, and who tolerate my crazy posts. And most of all, my incomparable RL husband, with whom I began this journey five years ago. I’ve learned so much about myself through my SL experiences, and though there’s been hurt and heartache, I consider myself fortunate that it’s been primarily a very positive experience.

So, maybe you’ve guess I’m feeling a little nostalgic today, huh? Well, that makes it a perfect time to show off some of the items from January’s edition of Collabor88, which has a theme and color palette that is designed to inspire feelings of nostalgia. My shirt and tie are both from Tres Blah’s offerings for Collabor88. My hair is a recent release from Truth, and I love the long, sleek ponytail. It’s versatile, and would work for more casual looks, as well as more professional, dressier styles. This is something I always love in my fashion pieces. The skirt is from Baiastice for FaMESHed. My shoes are from fri.day for Collabor88… more on those in a moment!

Nostalgia

I’m also wearing the pre-release of the new skin Magenta from Glam Affair. This gorgeous skin is in a new tone – Asia – that I just love. This sneak peek at the Magenta skin is available at The Seasons Story. In this picture, you can also see my beautiful earrings from Cae for the next round of Enchantment, which opens on February 1st. My eyes are from IKON’s Promise line, currently available only at FaMESHed. This line is my favorite yet from IKON, and I’m especially loving the brown shades.

Magenta by Glam Affair

I wanted to show off my sassy manicure, courtesy of Flair for the SLink hands. And here’s a better look at my Miranda shoes by fri.day. These are the first fri.day shoes for use with the High SLink feet, and I really, really love them. They are so elegant, and I’ve always been a fan of the look of ankle straps.

Details matter...

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Enchantment

SL has become so saturated with events that I am kind of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by them all. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of events that I absolutely love and would be really sad to see end. It’s just that lately I feel like every time I blink, there’s a new event! I say this as the owner (but not creator) of two events. I love my events like they are my babies, so it’s hard for me to say that I think there are too many in SL. But I do. So it takes something really unique, or a special and short term event (like Skin Fair or the highly anticipated Shoetopia) to grab my attention these days. Enchantment does just that. It’s also only every three months, with exclusive items and/or colors. Based on Grimm’s fairy tales, this event is perfect for those who love dramatic, fantasy themed items. The first round is Snow White. The build is spectacular, and there is a wide variety of items, many of which can be used just for every day fun as well as fantasy/RP. You can read more about this new and exciting event here.

My gorgeous gown is from Junbug for Enchantment. It comes in a wide assortment of colors, and all of them are stunning. Junbug is a new to me store, and one I’m thrilled to have discovered! The tiara I’m wearing is a Glam Affair release for FaMESHed, and seemed perfect for this ensemble. It also comes in a lot of color options, which makes me happy! My skin is also Glam Affair, from the new Elvi line which is part of a youth-inspired skin line from Glam. The apple pose prop is from Vanity Poses for Enchantment.

Care for an apple?

I really had fun with these poses. The apple cart is from The Garden and is by Trompe Loeil. The spilled baskets are Dysfunctional Dolly Designs (aka [DDD]). My hair is a new release from Exile, and the romantic, messy updo seemed perfect for a possibly slightly evil queen.

Sweet but tart

Also from the current round of The Garden is this gorgeous camping set from What Next. My outfit is another item from Enchanted by The Library. This ensemble is inspired by the Once Upon A Time television series take on Snow White.

Guardian of the Camp

In this look I am wearing the adorably sweet new Lucie skin from Izzie’s. I was incredibly touched by this release, and consider it an absolute privilege to have been granted such an honor.
