24 Months Of Collabor88

Collabor88 has been my favorite event ever since it opened. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of events that I love and adore, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say Collab stole my heart long ago. I don’t think there’s been a single round I haven’t shopped. So when I heard about the blogger search, I agonized over what to do, how to define my entry. I knew I wanted to only feature items from this and past rounds of the event, but that wasn’t enough. Finally, it came to me this past week. I went to the Collabor88 catalog and went back as far as the galleries go, which turns out to be March of 2014. I determined I was going to incorporate at least one item from every single round since.

I went through every single catalog and found items in my inventory from that round to work with, starting with the build by Dust Bunny and working from there. Aside from my mesh body (Maitreya’s Lara) and my mesh head (Catwa’s Annie), everything in the scene below – including my nail appliers and eyes – came from one of the past 24 rounds of Collabor88. I will credit by round below the pics, starting with the most recent round and ending in March 2014. Aside from my earrings, I owned all of these items prior to this month’s Espionage themed round. My earrings are from a round that was in the summer and everything I owned for it was out of place for the scene. Including my poor but adorable bubble blowing crab.

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.)

Cupcakes & Tiaras

So, it dawned on me a few days ago that my blog must be nearly One.Whole.Year old. I was wrong. It’s already past that milestone! I wrote my first post on May 3, 2012! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I’ll be honest. When I started this project, I really didn’t expect to last more than a couple of months. I figured I’d get bored. On the contrary, I love it far, far more than I could ever have imagined. I get to be creative in ways that were never really options for me before SL, and I really just enjoy it so much!

I’m not the only one celebrating… FaMESHed just marked its first birthday, too! I was about as shocked by that as I was to realize my blog had turned one! It’s like the year just blew past us. I guess it’s true what they say about time and having fun!

So, to celebrate these occasions, I donned some of the awesome items available at FaMESHed’s birthday round. Definitely check it out before it ends… there’s so much awesome to be had! I love the SySy maxi dresses. There are a ton of color options, including darker colors, but I opted for this pretty pastel lavender shade. I had to use one of the Cupcake poses Embody released recently, because our store is celebrating a birthday, too! It’s been three years since we opened, and I’m kind of flabbergasted by that. My tiara is also a FaMESHed item, from Maxi Gossamer. The gorgeous curls I’m wearing are courtesy of Alice Project, also for FaMESHed’s birthday. I love curls, so this was a must have hair as soon as I saw it.

Birthday Princess

Recently, I indulged and bought SLink hands and feet. With the new appliers and nail huds all over my Flickr stream and on the feeds, it was too tempting to resist. I hadn’t previously bought them because I found them tricky to tint. Which was odd because I’ve worn plenty of SLink in the past and never had issues. But then again, in those days I wasn’t changing skins like four times a week, either. So I had to tint once, not every time I changed. #problemsofaskinaddict

Anyway, I love the SLink hands and am having a lot of fun with my nails. I also LOVE the Cae jewelry set for FaMESHed, and I wanted to show that (and the nails) off, and this pose from E9 was perfect for doing so! Oh, and on my left hand is a ring from Exquisite. Years ago, when Rad & I decided to get married in SL on our 5th RL wedding anniversary, he gave me a ring. Like two years ago I deleted it. I happened to mention to him recently that I still was bummed about this, and he went out and bought me a new ring. The side stones are texture change (this is the tanzanite option) and I love the ring – and my husband – so much!

fri.day @ Pose Fair 2013!

It’s been a while! Traveling, sick, net issues… but all are better now, or better enough! So, without further ado, here are some of the offerings from fri.day for Pose Fair 2013.

First, fri.day has some awesome new individual pose packs, profile.pose & sweet.sour. Below you can get a glimpse of the profile.pose pack. I model poses 3 & 5 of this pack.

Solitary

That’s 3! My adorable tank is a new top from Zanzibar CreationZ. I am utterly in love with it, and not just because it shares my name and is purple! It comes with an awesome hud and has multiple design choices. I love hud controlled clothes. They keep the (ever increasing) clutter of my inventory down just a bit. Plus, they make it easy to change looks without changing clothes entirely!

The skin is Ramona from Al Vulo, one of the recent TDR Fusion versions. Eyes are from IKON, and the gorgeous pants are from Elate! I really like these pants because they are casual, yet a bit dressier than your usual jeans with their trouser-esque cut. My cute flats are from Tee*Fy.

Here’s a shot using profile.pose 5.

Sparkle

The sweet.sour pack is a really fun one. It’s sassy and flirty. This next pic is sweet.sour 3, and it’s my favorite pose in the pack. It’s great for sassy profile pics! I am dressed in various items from FaMESHed’s April round, including this saucy little sundress from Valentina E. Couture, the new Truth release for FaMESHed, and one of the stunning Maxi Gossamer sets.

Feigned Shyness

Also for Pose Fair, fri.day home has a new release… monkey bars! This prop is FUN. I decided that even though I was all gussied up, you’re never too old (or too dressed up) to play! The adorable swingset you see in the background is from What Next and will be featured in another post soon.

Never too old to play

I’ll have more from Pose Fair later today or tomorrow. It closes on Sunday (April 14th) so be sure you get there and grab all the goodies before then!

More from Skin Fair!

If you haven’t been to Skin Fair yet, you still have time! The even runs through March 31st, so be sure to get there before it closes. Today I have two skins available at Skin Fair to show you. One thing I love about blogging events like Skin Fair is the chance to discover great stores I didn’t know before the event. I wasn’t familiar with either of these stores, but I will definitely be checking them out regularly now!

First up, from Anymore, is Hazel. This skin is so pretty and soft. It has a youthful feel, and I decided to capitalize on that with a quirky, semi-dorky look. My glasses are from Mon Tissu. The gorgeous necklace is from Cae and is called Sakura. It’s currently available at a new event called The Boutique, brought to you by The Liaison Collaborative. The eyes I am wearing in both of these looks are also a new item, from IKON, at The Boutique. Also, if you’re curious about the decor items, they are tagged with notes if you click through to Flickr, and you can feel free to ask questions.

Anymore Dorky

I paired the skin with hair from Exile, the adorable saddle shoes Tres Blah has out at Collabor88. A lot of people have complained the Tres Blah shoes were too expensive. I have to admit I hesitated when I saw the L$388 price tag on them, but I am a sucker for saddle shoes and these are so cute and unique. They are well done, and I am likely going to go back and grab another pair. No, they aren’t “cheap,” but the quality and creativity is very high, and that counts for a lot for me. My pants are from Greymoon and were available at The Outlet. I’m not sure if that round is over, but if it is, Lyssa usually releases her items in her mainstore after, so either way look for them! My top is so cute, right? It’s from One Bad Pixel’s recent release, and I am in love. It has a hud that lets you change the color of the belt and the shirt that’s under the sweater (just to clarify, it’s all one piece – you can’t wear just the sweater or just the shirt). I’m a sucker for any item that has this sort of control. It makes a piece so much more versatile and an “investment.” Oh, the cute pose in this pic is from Grafica and is part of their Pose Fair release called per donna! I’m excited for Pose Fair!

Anymore

The second skin I want to show you is from Envious. Bella is appropriately beautiful. I love the purple eyeshadow on this one. I love purple. The blushing cheeks on this skin inspired me to blog it as a bride! Plus, I’ll use any excuse to marry Rad again, even if it’s just for pics. 😀 The gorgeous gown I have on is from Sakide. The dress is mesh, but the lacey, sheer top part is a jacket layer you wear under it. The dress works without it, too. But I loved the look, it was so soft and detailed. I felt utterly feminine and girly wearing this gown!

Bridal fantasies

The gown has a secret, seductive side, though… and I had to be sure to show you that, too.

Now and forever

Finally, in this last pic you can see the LaGyo headband I have on with the alternate veiled option. It felt so retro and mysterious, so I knew I had to use it. I will warn you that I had some trouble finding hair that worked, and only came up with this LeLutka option after I saw the lovely Oakley Foxtrot wearing it with the same headband (so ty Oakley!).

I take thee

And last… I have to share this one, even though for blogging purposes you can’t really see anything. I just loved this WL so much, I had to snap the drama shot, too.

You are my dream

What can I say? Our RL/SL wedding anniversary is coming up (April 6th in both worlds)… I guess I was feeling sappy!
