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.

Pack ALL the things!

We’re getting ready to leave on a pretty major road trip. We’re driving from Colorado to NJ & NY to visit family… and we’re taking our dog, too! This is not a vacation, but it will be an adventure. If nothing else, packing for two people and a dog for a 12 day trip and fitting it all into our Jeep should be an adventure.

Which is what inspired this post. And this new jacket combo and new pants from coldLogic’s new release (available in the Mainstore) seemed like perfect traveling clothing. But first, I have to figure out how to pack ALL OF THE THINGS! Including my owl, of course. I mean, I am, after all, a witch. At least in SL.

I'll never finish in time!

I’ve been having a lot of SL issues lately. Anyone else? I keep having things rezz in and out and that has made blogging tough. Hopefully when I get back whatever is causing that will have magically been fixed. Hey, I can dream, right?

See ya in a couple of weeks!

Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween. I’ll be blogging some pics of my home all decked out for the holiday in days to come, but for now I have a couple of other pics to share.

This first picture features some items from Collabor88’s current round, which has dark, moody colors and lots of spookiness! These boots and dress are from ISON. The boots are so amazing. They move so perfectly with my av and I love the ruched detailing on them. The slip dress is just freakin’ stunning. The way it gathers around the belly, and the wrinkles, god the wrinkles. I’ve spent way more time than is probably normal just admiring the wrinkles… the attention to detail in both of these pieces makes ISON creator Harry Hyx a genius in my opinion. My witchy broom pose is from Ploom and the hair, so delightfully messy, is from Exile and also is at Collabor88. The pumpkin pile is courtesy of What Next, and the spooky plank signs are from Sari-Sari.

Witchy Woman

This next pic features a new release from Pixel Mode, the Woodlands hot tub, which is currently available at The Liaison Collaborative. I fell in love with the rustic charm of this release, and decided to dress it up a bit for a Halloween hot tubbing party, with some help from What Next, Fetch, Ploom and Belleza. The adorable skin I am wearing is one of Belleza’s new group gifts (the other one is in the previous picture in this post!). My hair is from Ploom. It’s called Oh Deer, and includes two versions. One has a built in, deer inspired headband. The other has space for headbands inspired by other animals (sold separately). I’m wearing that version with the cat ears! The headbands are actually compatible with three new Ploom releases, so be sure to check them out.

Halloween Hot Tubbing

However you celebrate today, whether it’s Samhain and a religious festival, or just secular Halloween fun, I hope you enjoy! As for me? Well, I’ll be making Mummy Dogs and watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with my husband tonight!

Candy Coated Autumn

You may have heard that Candy Fair 2014 opened on Friday. This event was a lot of fun last year, and this year it’s even better. The build is just adorable, and easy to navigate (essential for a zero sense of direction spazz like me!).

I have a few things to show you today, and there will be plenty more to satisfy your sweet tooth in posts to come. While many of the Candy Fair designers featured items that are not seasonal – meaning Autumn or Halloween specific – there are some goodies to be found in those genres. One such find is this adorable candy corn mailbox from Lost Junction. It comes in plenty of other colors and designs, too. And there are matching windchimes available. I just thought it would be the perfect October mailbox (please note this is NOT a functional mailbox, but just for seriously cute decor).

Candy Gram

Sway’s did some really cute living sets for Candy Fair, one of which actually is seasonal and resembles candy corn. However, I really liked the chocolate version and it suited this cute vespertine skybox perfectly. The beautiful lantern is from 8f8 for Candy Fair (their non-gacha offering), and the tray of cupcakes and chocolates is just one of Pixel Mode’s avaiable items.
