Fallen Angel

I admit that when I first saw the Ravaged Wings Jian released for Wrath at the Festival Of Sin II, I was a bit… well, horrified might apply. I mean, they’re pretty gory, what with the flexi blood hanging off them. But they’re also SO well done, and after looking at them for a while I found myself utterly captivated. I wanted to challenge myself… I’ve blogged fantasy, but nothing quite so dark as this, really. I was imagining an angel, fallen from grace, being thrown from the heavens by the gods. I took the photo at Blithe.

I’m also wearing a lovely dress from le fil casse for Black Tie, which, like FOS II, closes September 5th. My foot wraps are from fri.day, for Collabor88’s birthday round, which is also winding down. The gloves I’m wearing are another new release from Jian, available at The Fantasy Collective. Last, but not least, I’m wearing one of Tableau Vivant’s awesome releases for The Arcade. There are a bunch of variations on this Editorial hair, which is just perfect for photography.

The blogger’s closet

Festival Of Sin II has been so much fun so far! It’s winding down, and closes September 5th, so I wanted to share some goodies from the event before it’s over!

I love the hair MINA did for Lust. It’s so lush and sexy. The shoes from fri.day for Vanity are gorgeous, sexy and versatile. I’ve paired them with a stunning new release from coldLogic’s new brand neve (more on neve to come soon!). This dress is so pretty, with its lacy texture and (though they’re covered by my hair here) dainty straps. I’m using Exposeur’s glam Luxury Closet gacha for Greed at FOS II as a backdrop for this look. I thought it did a pretty great job of representing what a blogger’s closet might look like, if SL bloggers actually had closets and not inventories. Though come to think of it, mine would probably be more cluttered and less organized! ๐Ÿ˜›

The Blogger's Closet

In this picture, I’m wearing Blueberry’s recently released yoga pants with items from Uber. My top is Miss Chelsea and my hair is Truth, and both can be found at Uber. The gym bag next to me, by Bueno, is also at Uber. My sleepy koala friend is by +Pepper+ and is at Festival Of Sin II in Sloth. The beautiful barn I’m using as my yoga studio is from Pixel Mode’s Arcade release. This release has NO rares! Even this gorgeous barn build is a common. The Arcade is now open, and runs all month so if you can’t get in yet, don’t fret! You have time.

Koalas can sleep through anything

I was honored to be chosen as a Hottie Cooterati staff blogger, so I’ve blogged some pics over there, but I wanted to share them here, too.

This one was taken on the FOS II sim, in the Sloth section with a fellow FOS II blogger.ย The builds are spectacular, and honestly it’s worth going for that alone, but there are so many goodies to be had, too. You can read the full credits on this post here.

Seen at the Sloth Motel

This one features Schadenfreude’s Acedia table, which comes in a clean version, too. I also have one of Anya Ohmai’s free sponsor gifts featured here, a snow globe designed for Hopscotch. You can read all about this post here.

Spiders in the attic

Finally, in this picture I’m wearing Alice Project’s sexy bedhead hair for Lust, Baiastice’s stunning gown for Vanity and Cae’s serpent bracelet for Envy, along with one of her gacha rings for Greed. You can get all the details here.

Rhapsody

There are only a couple of days left for Rhapsody. This is a must-visit event for music lovers… whether your love is rock, jazz, metal or country (amongst others) you’ll be sure to find something to love at this event.

I was inspired by Coquet’s County Rd 22 dress and Blake Shelton’s new song “My Eyes” in creating this look. The prop pose is from Embody’s Country Girl set, and I had to blog it because I begged Rad to do this pack. Both the Coquet and Embody are in the Country genre at Rhapsody. My adorable wedge heels are fri.day for Summerfest, which also ends this weekend.

Those high heels with that sundress...

I knew I needed a skin with dramatic red lips for this look, to go with the line “red lips like wine, wanna drink them up” from the song. When I saw PXL’s Mia in the Jazz genre at Rhapsody I fell in love with it. I originally grabbed one with peachy, summery makeup, but then went back for the version you see below, with the luscious red lips.

Red lips like wine

(Depending on copyright laws where you live, you might be able to listen to the song using the link below.)

Who doesn’t love (Fifty Linden) Fridays?

Even if Friday isn’t “your” Friday, who can resist some Fifty Linden Fridays goodness? I rarely do FLF posts because, truth be told, I’m a slow blogger. But I was inspired when I couldn’t sleep at 2 am, so… here ya go!

Girl Thursday is a new-to-me store that was part of this week’s FLF… and look! The tank/dress they are offering is so cute. It looks so comfy. There is a pair of leggings available, too, which included appliers for the Phat Azz, but I opted to pair it with these cute jeans Mon Tissu recently released. I find I am really picky about jeans in SL, and I love these. I also have a thing for cuffed pants in general, so that helped! The adorable pose I am using is one of Infiniti Poses’ releases for Pose Fair! You just wear the wands, and voila! Bubbles! My shoes are also a FLF item, this time from fri.day. Darling Monday has released a whole slew of new shoes for the SLink feet in her mainstore, so in addition to picking up these darling Venus heels for a L$50 steal, be sure to check out the other shoes.

Finally Friday

My skin is also new, and it is Glam Affair’s release for FLF! I love the Brandi line, so I had to go snag this one. My alts may need it, too! This hair is one of two new ones Truth released recently… unless you don’t use Flickr, you’ve undoubtedly seen the other one. It’s adorable with its cute rollers, but I love braids… and headbands (btw, you can hide the headband, as well as change the color, on this hair). So this was love at first strand for me. Yeah, I went there. My lovely manicure is courtesy of Mon Cheri for the Monochromatic Fair, and the gorgeous dragonfly jewelry I have on is from Cae for the current round of FaMESHed.

Bubbly Girl

I took both pics on Izzie’s sim, which is, as always, beautifully decorated and open to the public. Just drop by her mainstore and wander around… you’ll find lots of awesome little corners to take lovely pics and just relax and spend time!

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!
