Fantastical

I have more for you from Fantasy Faire today! First up, from Almost Wonderland I present this really cool chandelier. It has built in poses, which are a lot of fun… but even without the poses it’s pretty neat. Almost Wonderland has all of their chandeliers as their charity items from Relay For Life, so if you’re in the market for a new one, especially one fun for pics, definitely check it out.
You can find Almost Wonderland’s FF store on the Ravenshard sim. My frilly, sexy lingerie is from Blacklace. It had a sort of Wonderland feel to it, I thought. I added hair from Analog Dog and a headpiece from Pididdle.

Dangle

Okay, so my next set of pics… Peryton… this is such a cool avatar from Wilds of Organica, which is on the Dragonspire sim at Fantasy Faire. I am usually human in SL. Like, by usually I mean 99.9% of the time, probably. And this type of avatar is so outside my normal SL reality, I was a little nervous about doing it justice. Since I’m not one to play a non-human av, I can’t honestly say whether or not I did this avatar justice, but it was so, so much fun to take these dramatic pics of Peryton. I was really happy with how these came out, and I hope you like them, too. If you do spend time as a non-human, I’d highly recommend checking these creatures out because they are stunningly beautiful and have AOs and poses you can buy. In the pic below, I’m using the crouch pose. It made me feel like I was stalking prey.

Stalking

There’s something very regal about this avatar. I’m not really sure what this creature even is… part bird, part goat, part dragon? I think it’s cool that it’s not boxed in. But whatever Peryton is, I can’t help feel a little haughty dressed as her. Oh, by the way, I have the teal version, but the eyes change colors. I went with lavender because I love purple, and there’s a hint of purple in her plumage.

Wild Thing

I took both pics on the Valley of Ish’Nar sim at Fantasy Faire. This sim is part of the Key Of Hope hunt, which is a pretty cool event that’s part of Fantasy Faire. You can read more about it here.

Cinematic Dress Up

I love Halloween. It’s just so much fun to dress up, and have fun. If you also love Halloween, you definitely need to check out the Cinema event. There are a ton of great costume ideas, along with every day or RPing ideas to be found. Here are some of my favorites… so far!

When I saw the poses Hopscotch was going to release for this event, I was in geek heaven. Doctor Who and Star Trek inspired heaven… I’ll have something from the Doctor Who themed releases soon, but for my first look, I went for Star Trek. I paired Hopscotch’s pose with the adorable dress from E! Eclectic Apparel, inspired by the outfits from The Original Series. I picked blue because if I were in Starfleet, I’d definitely be a science officer! I rented a MultiScene skybox for an hour, and this is the Visio scene with one of the planet surrounds. I decided to turn on the hot tub, because let’s face it, Kirk would love that. Besides, the steam and bubbles seemed to add drama.

Unseen Enemy

For my second look, I am wearing Pididdle’s Cinema offering, called Undead Perfection. There is a story that goes with this ensemble, and I just loved the creativity and effort that went into this. If you’d like to read the story, click here. I copied it from the notecard that was included with the outfit. This outfit contains nails, the face mask, the bodysuit and even the awesome tattoos. This was also taken in a MultiScene skybox, and this scene is called Swamp. The skin is the Matrioska offering for October’s MySecond Box.

Undead

My last look is more every day, but still dramatic. This Willow hair from Alice Project for Cinema is amazing. For me, it conjured up a windswept beach… and possibly a broken heart, or date night that ended in a way that wasn’t planned. This look was inspired by a character in a Nora Roberts series I really enjoy. The character’s name is Mia, and she has flame red hair and grey eyes. She’s also, it just so happens, a very powerful (but “good”) witch. I paired this hair with the elegantly dramatic tiered dress that Valentina E. Couture has for one of their Cinema items, and I wandered to Fire Beach to shoot these pics.

Witchy Woman

I’m also wearing the newest skin release from Izzie’s. Fuyu is just stunning. I am so in love with this skin. Here’s a better look. You can also see the dainty and delicate necklace I snagged from the Collisions booth at Cinema.

Night Breeze

I’ll have more from Cinema soon… stay tuned.

So many looks, so little time

I’ve had a rotten week. Let’s just get it out there. Fibromyalgia is an evil bitch sometimes. Okay, most of the time. So, I took some time off. But today I realized, wait, Lucie… you have TONS TO BLOG! And so, here I am. Blogging some of the tons.

Let’s start with last week’s new Truth style Marina & new mesh pants from BOOM. I snagged this adorable tank during a recent sale at Geometry, and I finished off the look with my Storm heels from Gos. I kind of agonized over what shoes to wear, but these were perfect. With the change of seasons upon us – or at least on those of us who live in ridiculous places, like I do – I’ve been getting my adorable Funky Junk cottage ready for autumn. I have had my eye on this snuggle chair from LISP for a long time now, and I decided it was simply time. So, on cool, late summer morning, I got comfy in my chair with some coffee.

Big Comfy Chair

I love these pants. They come in an unbelievable selection of colors. I’ve chosen to model the cocoa (above) and the cobalt (below). The top in the below pic is from Cracked Mirror for My Attic (August edition – Shaken Not Stirred – runs through August 31st). I’ve been seeing a lot of plaid in SL fashion lately, and I say bring it on! I love plaid. This pose is from Miseria. Something about it brought to mind the Billy Joel song “Pressure,” and that inspired this pic. It’s something of a departure for me, but it’s quirky and I like quirky.

Pressure

The hair is also from last week’s Truth release, and I feel so sophisticated and sexy in this one. It’s called Bria, and even the name feels elegant! This pose is also from Miseria and is part of the August pack available at The Attic. I fell in love with this cylinder necklace from Handverk. The items from that store are so unique. My earrings were made by my friend Altair Stickfigure. They feature Pusheen. She made them for me after I discovered that cute kitty this week.

Hold On

After a long day, I decided to unwind… though this My Attic release from Pididdle is intended as a bikini, I decided it could make for some cute lingerie, too, and I lounged about in bed in our Linden home (I wanted shadows which, alas, I don’t get in my sky area because of the surround) wearing that (and little else) while the sun set.

Languid

The next morning, I tossed one of Rad’s shirts over my linger-kini while I got some work done over a lazy breakfast in bed, courtesy of my What Next Nieve bed (if only our RL beds could give us food!).

The morning after

Okay, so the Boyfriend Shirt is actually a new release from Zenith Fashions. I just had to have it. I chose this color because it actually looked like a shirt Rad would wear. In fact, I think it looks like one he has!

And now that I’ve had some rest, it’s time for me to get back to work… which means more posts soon! I wish you a fabulous weekend.

I like variety…

Since I like variety, this post is going to bring you a good mix of some current SL events and releases. In this first look, I am featuring Vintage Fair, Collabor88 & FaMESHed. This dramatic mesh gown is from Loovus Dzevavor for Vintage Fair. The hair I paired it with is Wasabi Pills Sylvie for FaMESHed, and the quirky, funky sunglasses are from PIDIDDLE for Collabor88’s 1st birthday Baroque-themed edition.

Swirly

This skin is the new Elena skin from Izzie’s, but more on that in the next look. This adorable prop pose is from Status Poses. I just loved the cute bag, and in this outfit, with this pose, I felt like I was a celebrity trying to escape the paparazzi on the way out of town for a vacation getaway!

Time Travel

My other look must be post-arrival on the “family farm,” because it’s much more casual and country chic! For this look, I paired Geometry’s Vintage Fair Daisy dress with the new barefeet from Pixel Mode and this adorable new braid hairstyle from Truth. The skin is Elena, and I am so in love with this skin. These next pics were taken in T Town, which is a really pretty sim, and a great place to shoot pics.

Lucie on the Prairie

Here’s a better look at the lovely Elena skin. I especially adore the mouth on this face. It’s pouty and sensual, and a nice juxtaposition for the overall innocence of this skin (on a side note, my BFF Rosa told me I looked “too innocent” in this outfit, and she knows me better).

Farmer's Daughter

I hope you had a nice, relaxing weekend… and that Monday is kind to you. More from me soon.
