Meet Devon

[TheSkinnery] is participating in the annual Skin Fair with a new release for Catwa’s bento heads. I fell in love with this face immediately. Devon is so impish and adorable, and I knew it would be the perfect skin for a bit of a whimsical, fantasy themed post. I visited StoryBrooke Gardens to shoot these pics. It’s a lovely place for spring pics. Plus, if you join the Baja Norte group (the sims are owned by the same person, Lauren Bentham) you can rezz, too! My eyes are also from [TheSkinnery], from the Palermo collection which you can find in the mainstore. I liked how they matched the colors in the wings (my fairy outfit is from Decoy, more on that to come!). But seriously, look at this face. Isn’t it super cute? I love the lips in particular, but all of it is just lovely. I’m also wearing one of the lipglosses, sold separately for it at Skin Fair. I have it on my own shape on Catwa’s Kimberly head. It may not look remotely the same on different heads or shapes, so definitely demo first! My stunning necklace and matching earrings by Cae are at the current round of FaMESHed and match the shoes you’ll see in the next pic. Also, you get 3 different earring styles with this set (sold together with the necklace or individually).

My vines, bikini and (bento!) wings are courtesy of Decoy’s Forest Fae gacha. Please note that this was a recent event release and is not yet in the Mainstore, but should be soon. My gorgeous shoes are the new collaboration between Gos and Cae, available at FaMESHed and designed to match the necklace and earrings you saw in the previous photo.

Morning Fairy

Here’s a closeup of those shoes, unedited, to show the intricate detail in the jewels. Normally in a post where I am a fairy, I’d go barefoot. But if ever there were shoes suitable for a spring fae? These are them (click the image to see it larger)!

Seaside Brunch

I love the beautiful outdoor brunch set that Nefarious Inventions did for The Epiphany, and I knew I’d have to use it as soon as I saw it. It’s such an adorable set, and the detail on every piece of it is gorgeous. And I mean, it has pancakes. Anything with pancakes is an automatic win in my world.

I decided to add in one of Jian’s Silly Shibes, also from The Epiphany. This is the rare, with the balloons. It’s animated (the puppy changes positions, and even yawns and stretches, as he’s doing in my pic) and the balloons have multiple color palettes to choose from. I used the Purples! The serving cart seen in this set up is the Exclusive from Nefarious Inventions. Remember that Exclusives won’t be available ever again after the event ends, so be sure to check which ones you want!

Seaside Brunch

If you haven’t been to The Epiphany yet, be sure to check it out before it closes on May 5th! If you need inspiration for your must-haves list, check out the official shopping guide.

The Epiphany

The Epiphany opened this week, and if you haven’t gone yet you are definitely missing out. This is the third round of this wonderful event, and it’s just getting better! If you’re not familiar with what makes The Epiphany different from other gacha events, you can read about it here. But just a quick overview, if you’re a fellow gacha addict, you know you often get stuck with extra copies of the same item that you can’t use or don’t want for whatever reason. Well, with The Epiphany you can save your item or redeem it for points. Those points can then be cashed in to get designer exclusives that will not be available after the event ends! Items you choose to keep can still be transferred, so you can change your mind and give them away or sell them, too.

This time all of the designers have their exclusives next to their machines at the event, but also at their Mainstores! The official blog has a complete list of stores with slurls to make life easier for you, so be sure to check that out, too!

I started off by blogging pieces of the beautiful Valentine’s Blush set from Stockholm & Lima! I also stuck a box of macarons from Half-Deer’s adorable Macaron Dream Buffet set in the scene, and I’m wearing the macaron necklace that is Half-Deer’s exclusive item. I’m also wearing one of the lovely Doe hairs from the event. My outfit is a combo of Blueberry and Just Because. The top is from Just Because, and you’ll find it at the Mesh Addicts event. The jeans are from Blueberry, and it’s funny because I was so excited the top fit so wonderfully over these jeans, and then realized they’re the jeans from the sweater ad!

I Will Remember You

More from The Epiphany coming soon! So stay tuned. And thank you, to readers and designers alike, for standing by me during the difficult time I just went through with my grandmother’s illness and subsequent death. I particularly am grateful to the designers who have stood by me with patience and support and understanding. It’s been an unbelievably rough couple of months, especially since this happened during the holidays (not that there’s ever a great time, but it did make it that much harder). While grief is something I know I’ll feel for quite some time yet, I’m feeling like at least I’m at a point where I can channel some of my sadness and emotions here. So thank you for sticking by me, and for the kind words so many of you have given me. I really appreciate it, more than I could say, and I will never forget those who have stood by me during such a tough time. ❤

I don’t wanna grow up

Stockholm & Lima did the most adorable set for The Epiphany. It’s called “failed adulting,” and the rare is this cozy “blanket fort” skybox. I’m also featuring the bed, candy glasses, rug and table from this set. Personally, I look at this skybox and bed, and think “winning adulting,” but that’s just me. I’m still a Toys R Us kid! My outfit features Fishy Strawberry’s adorable top for Geeks ‘N Nerds 2015. When I put this top on and saw what it said, I seriously couldn’t stop giggling. Which confirmed for me that I am, in fact, a nerdy geek. Aside from “textually active,” there’s “stay weird (a message I also support fully)”, and a plain option. You can also change the suspender colors, and there are plaid, leather and argyle options.

I don't wanna grow up

My leggings are a recent release from Neve, the new store from the creators of coldLogic. My adorably geeky glasses are from Label Motion, also for Geeks ‘N Nerds, as are my pencil socks by Izzie’s and my cute pigtails from Wasabi Pills. The cute little tv you see in the corner near the unicorn bed is one of Hopscotch’s All The TV Feels, the love version, another Geeks ‘N Nerds release. Isn’t it super cute?! The chair I’m goofing around on is from Cheeky Pea and is at The Mens Dept with multiple color versions. I’m on the tartan one because I love tartan, and I really enjoyed adding tartan to argyle and houndstooth patterns.

Geeks N Nerds is now open and runs through November 1st!

The Epiphany runs through November 12th!
