You shall not pass us!

So last night, I got together with a fellow blogger, and just sort of randomly decided to shoot a pic. It was like 1 am, but we had on these gorgeous corsets from Enfant Terrible for We ❤ Role-Play, and it just sort of grew from there. The final look was one designed to inspire both longing and fear!

You Shall Not Pass Us

We took this picture at Fallen Gods.

Meet Marina & Jemma

This is the final weekend of Skin Fair 2014. Sad, right? But the good news is you still have time to hurry over and explore the three fabulous sims worth of skins!

I have two skins to show you in this post. First up is Jemma by Clef De Peau. This was an unknown to me store, but I fell in love with this skin’s haughty and regal face!

Jemma by Clef De Peau

I took advantage of the feeling of this skin, and dressed in ISON’s gorgeous suit that is available at the current round of Collabor88. My hair from Truth, bag from Glam Affair and shoes from fri.day are also all items you’ll find at March’s Collab!

Shopping break

The other skin I want to show you today is Marina by okkbye. What drew me to this skin were the lush, pouty lips. And, well… it reminded me of a certain Vulcan science officer (and no, not Mr. Spock!). So, I decided to RP it up for this look. In case you haven’t heard, E! Eclectic Apparel is closing their inworld store due to RL being too busy. In store items are all marked down to L$75, including the SciFi dress I’m wearing for this post!

Marina by okkbye

This look also gave me an excuse to use the Prosper version of my SLink hands, something I’ve been wanting and waiting to do for quite some time. Also, in the background you can see the gorgeous Alloy house from Pixel Mode that is available at The Garden. I plan to do more detailed pics of this lovely home in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

Live Long

You will find Clef De Peau on Sim 2 and okkbye on Sim 3 at Skin Fair.

Fantasy Faire 2013!

Fantasy Faire 2013 opened this weekend, and there is so much to see. Spread out over 8 sims, this event is part of the Relay For Life juggernaut helping to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

I love fantasy. I don’t RP but I love seeing other people’s pics for it, and I am really enjoying this chance to explore another side of myself. For Fantasy Faire you have the option of being assigned to four designers, and I chose that option. This blog post features two of those assignments.

First up, the Wonderful World of Meeroos! I am familiar with Meeroos. I had them back when I was breeding everything (or so it felt). I had stopped breeding entirely, but KittyCatS had seduced me back with their Halloween 2011 releases. Now, I have a new Roo! Her name is Meara, and she is a Winecoat Roo. She has lots of kitty friends to play with, and I am going to (try to) behave myself and just have her as a little furry friend, not a breeder. We’ll see how that goes! Regardless, she has reminded me why I loved my Roos so much. First off, they make the cutest sounds. You definitely need to hear Roo sounds if you haven’t. So, so cute. They sort of… Idk, chirp? And they bounce around, too. Meeroo starter packs come in these awesome chests, that when clicked open and play fabulously fantastical music and disperse pretty shimmery blue particles. The pic below is of Meara making her debut into the world from her cute little nest.

Birth of Meara

There are also plants available to help you decorate your Roo’s home! In this second pic, you can see my tiny baby Meara snuggled up near her “stump,” which is her home… and the plants are so pretty and really add a touch of flair and drama.

Sleepy Roo

You can learn so much more about the Meeroos at their website, or by visiting their Faire store on Lumenaria, which just so happens to be my personal favorite of the beautiful Fantasy Faire sims (though it’s not easy to pick!), as seen below.

Lumenaria

Another of my assigned stores was Ezura. I got this outfit and just kind of stared at myself for a while. I chose the purple because it is the official RFL item, but the outfit comes in many color choices, too. It’s sexy and sassy and so unlike the things I usually wear. I wasn’t really sure how to style it. Then I saw this hair from EMO-tions for Fantasy Faire and I knew I needed it. I was also sure I wanted to use my Huntress poses from Hopscotch, so that meant flat shoes… preferably boots. Lucky for me, Lassitude & Ennui released these gorgeous boots at Fantasy Faire! You’ll find Lassitude & Ennui on the Crimson Fields sim. Ezura is located on the Lotus Valley Dream sim.

Before the hunt

The headpiece is built into the hair, and I wanted you to get a better look at that, as well as this gorgeous skin from Glam Affair for Collabor88. I am actually wearing the bare version of Margot that came with makeup 04. I went to the Cosmetics Fair where you can find makeups for Margot, and this is makeup 03. EMO-tions is on the Evensong Woods sim.

Dreams of Artemis

I took both of these pics at Skye Castle, which is a lovely place to take pics. There are woods, and castles and it’s really quite beautiful and dramatic. A special thanks to my friend Jessica for recommending it to me!

Fantasy Faire is enormous, but there is a list of all the sims here. If you click on a sim name you can then see a list of every designer on that sim! This makes find things so much easier. You can also find pics of Faire finds on the official Pinterest board or in the official Flickr group. Remember, this is, above all else, a charity event, so you’re shopping for a great cause.

Winter Wonderland

Winter sparkles and shimmers, and the cold means plenty of snuggly, comfy clothes… I love winter. Winter in Second Life is so much fun. There are always lost of fun, festive items to be had. And I know for those of you in “normal”places in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s not officially winter. Of course, it’s not officially winter here, either… but once we get our first snows, which happens early at 9,000 feet above sea level, well, it’s winter to me!

La Petite Morte recently released a gorgeous new skin named Birgit. The Outlet Sales Room has 2 versions of this skin for just $L99 each! The pale tone is especially adorable and has the look of being outside in the cold, so I paired it with some frosty, wintry eyebrows from Izzie’s and I teleported skated over the Izzie’s store sim, which is all decked out for winter (and absolutely stunning). I happened upon an abandoned pose stand tucked into a snow bank, and it had some of Izzie’s Headshot poses. I decided it was serendipity and hopped on to take this shot!

Winter Wonderland

This horse is one of the items Izzie Button has used to decorate her sim. Continuing with Pose Appreciation Week, I made sure to get the details on the horsey. This prop is from Focus Poses. I think I need to buy one of these for my own personal use! The adorable hair I am wearing is from Wasabi Pills, and it includes the scarf. By the way… there are Hogwarts house colors included in the texture options, for any fellow geeks. 😀 My cozy, oversized sweater is from NiNight Creations. I added a comfy turtleneck from fri.day and some fuzzy tights from JANE. These boots are from Lassitude & Ennui and are part of a very important fundraiser called Unhinged. More about Unhinged in just a moment, but first… the picture.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Okay, so about Unhinged. This event is raising money for an SLer named Eku Zhong. I don’t know Eku, but she is very sick. She has multiple sclerosis, which is an illness that hits close to home for me, as my husband has it. But it’s more complicated than just that. Eku’s also battled cancer. She now needs reconstructive surgery, and this is not some minor surgery, nor is it about vanity… in fact, without it, she might die. To read more check this blog post. There are a lot of awesome items available for this event, and it’s definitely worth checking out.
