Collabor88 Last Call!

I wanted to share a few more goodies from the current (but nearly over) round of Collabor88. Remember, this is the birthday round, which is even bigger and better than usual rounds, with lots of guest stores. It’s not one you want to miss!

I rarely ever wear (yellow) gold. I’m just not a fan. But I loved the muted gold of this sexy ISON dress, and of all the jewelry creators I know in SL, none do gold better than Caelan Hancroft of Cae. Her gold is soft and pretty, not brassy or too yellow. So I was perfectly happy to don the Odyssey headband from her Collab set with my dress. Between these pretty golds and my platform decorated for fall, I had Fields Of Gold (this version) in my head as I worked, and that inspired this shot.

Fields of gold

Here is a better look at the headband, and also a close up of Artemis, Glam Affair’s skin for Collab’s birthday! My hair is from Magika, who is one of the birthday guests.

Contemplation

This next look features a gorgeous dress from SySy’s which is available at Collabor88, along with this beautiful long hair from Exile. My sexy, strappy heels are from Glamistry for the SLink high feet.

Afternoon date

In this close up you can see my Bolt necklace, which is Cae’s other offering at Collabor88. Also, check out my gorgeous skin! This is Emily, by Belleza, for The Arcade. Yes, The Arcade is again upon us, and I have plenty to share from it in future posts, so stay tuned. This is the rare in Medium… there are three rares, all very similar, with this minimalistic makeup style & freckles, but in different skintones. In all there are 15 gorgeous versions of Emily to be collected. Each one includes three brow color options and a no brow option you can use your own tattoo brows with instead. Also included is a glossy version of the lipstick and moles! All for L$100 per play.

Hair Fair is HERE!

Hair Fair is one of my favorite events of the year. Not only is it fun to go try all the new hairs, Hair Fair benefits an incredible charity called Wigs For Kids. You can read all about Hair Fair 2014 on the official event blog.

As with previous years, Hair Fair 2014 features a clean, easy-to-navigate layout. Since I get lost so easily at events, this is something I’ve always really appreciated. I feel the event organizers go to great lengths to try to make it a fun environment that is as low lag as possible. But this year’s build is just so, so cute on top of all that other good stuff. I had to snap a couple of pics. As in previous years, you’ll find redelivery terminals scattered around the sim, in case lag gets the better of you or you accidentally decline an offer.

Hair Fair 2014 2

Hair Fair 2014 1

For my first Hair Fair 2014 post, I chose one of Ploom’s new styles, Carrie. I love the sleek, somewhat retro feel to this hairstyle. It’s so elegant! I paired it with a sunset colored dress from SySy’s, which goes so nicely with my adorable fri.day wedge heels available at The Seasons Story.

Summer sunset

My beautiful skin is Essences Galadriel, which is also available at The Seasons Story in the new skin tones (which I just love). My jewelry is from Cae, for The Dreaming Tree, so hurry… you can still grab this set for a discount for the rest of today!

The dirigible plums need sun

You will find Ploom on the Brunette sim at Hair Fair. The Hair Fair blog has a fabulously informative post about this year’s event. It breaks down each of the four sims by stores and also features a handy map!

Parisian Spring

Hi! I wanted to take a minute to welcome in spring, and to show you one of the gorgeous new faces from Essences available at Skin Fair (Essences is on Sim 3). Meet Paris! I really, really love this skin. It’s youthful, but not super young. I love the lightly glossy lips, too.

Paris by Essences

My gorgeous jewelry is the Satine set by Cae available at Serafilms tribute to Moulin Rouge. Moulin Rouge is one of those movies I keep meaning to see. I know, I know. My cute little dress is by SySy’s for the current round of My Attic. It comes in a variety of pretty colors and I love it because it’s simple which makes it versatile. It will be easy to dress up (or down!) depending on your needs and wants. My super cute hair is also at My Attic, from Tableau Vivant.

Spring Dreams

Oh, and did I mention the dress has matching sandals!?! Yep, SySy did SLink add-on sandals for My Attic, too. They are the perfect wedge heeled espadrilles that will enhance any spring/summer wardrobe!

Be sure to stop by all three events before they end to check out the goodies!

PS. About the location… I swear I LM’d the location. I always credit locations. Well, my entire LMs folder of places I go to shoot pics is gone (very sad) and this place mysteriously is not in my recent teleport history, either. I tried to find it again, but failed. So if anyone of you recognize the sim, please feel free to say so in the comments or send me a message and I will update this post! Thanks!

I’m in heaven

Skin Fair 2014 has begun! And anyone who knows me understands that, for me, this is SL heaven. In this post I have two gorgeous skins to show you, and I decided to take advantage of Skin Fair to also show off some lovely Blacklace lingerie!

First up, you may have heard all about SLink’s awesome new mesh head, Visage. There are two versions of Visage available at the moment, and I am showing you Becky. The incredibly awesome thing about this mesh head is that Siddean Munro of SLink has allowed other creators to make appliers for it, just like with her mesh hands and feet. Oh, the other awesome thing is that unlike the mesh heads I’ve tried in the past, you wear your own eyes with this head. Since I am really freakin’ picky about eyes, this was something that simply delighted me.

Glam Affair is among several stores to have released appliers for Visage, and their first release is a version of the brand new Romy skin that is having its debut at Skin Fair! I am wearing the Becky head with the Romy applier in the pictures below.

Daydream Believer

Here’s a closer look! I am using the open mouth facial expression. There are plenty of fun options, and I’ll show you some more in future posts!

Dreamer

Another skin that I fell hard for is the new release from League! Erin is just gorgeous. In fact, I couldn’t decide which makeup I loved most, so I uhm, fatpacked it. I decided to pair Erin with one of Blacklace’s St. Patrick’s Day offerings because it just seemed appropriate.

Irish

And here’s a close up of this gorgeous new face!

Erin Go Bragh

I have plenty more to show you from Skin Fair. You’ll find Glam Affair on Sim 1 and League on Sim 2. For more info, including Sim Maps, please visit the Skin Fair 2014 blog!

PS. Skin Fair is using a script counter. Please be sure to remove any unnecessary scripted items before you tp in. This is done to help reduce lag and make the event more easily navigated by all.

Arcade Afterglow…

The sounds of a seaside boardwalk. The fun of the games. The seemingly endless stuff you can win. The Arcade is wonderfully exhausting. So, here I am, in my gorgeous Scarlet Creative home from The Arcade, sitting in comfy Junk chair from the Arcade, surrounded by various Arcade goodies, like my cute little Kerfluffle sheep from Half+Deer. And my adorably messy Tableau Vivant hair!

Arcade Afterglow

All that pretend lever pulling makes an avatar hungry… thankfully MishMish had some yummy goodies in their machine, so I can have breakfast in my Scarlet Creative bed.

Breakfast In Bed

I made a lot of new friends… Intrigue and Schadenfreude have adorable little critters that just HAD to come home with me.

Bunbits & Kitts

Definitely be sure to check out this event… as usual it’s pretty freakin’ fantastic.

Tis the season…

I feel like December has just been running away from me! How is it already almost Christmas?! Well, I have a few things to share, and I won’t ramble on (well, I will try not to) because I know many of us are rushing about trying to get ready for the holidays. But can I just say this about December? Holy events and sales! I do love December, even if it likes to sneak by me.

First up, I borrowed my BFF Rosa, and we got comfy in this adorable igloo from What Next. This igloo is What Next’s Arcade offering for this edition, and you have time still to go try your luck. I’m using the Oh Deer Rare version because I love the little mailbox that is included in the rares. Oh, the pretty, sparkly kittens keeping Rosa company (while I am on the lookout for polar bears!) are two of the Purr Balls from KittyCatS holiday collections. There will be more pics of holiday kittens to come because somehow I wound up with ten of them! I know, I know. I need an intervention. My adorable coat dress, hair and boots are both Collabor88 items. The dress is from The Secret Store, the hair (with hat) is Lamb, and the boots are Ingenue.

Polar Bear Lookout

Next up on the agenda! Blacklace always does the loveliest lingerie, and you can count on Mariska Simons for gorgeous seasonal versions, too. This set is one of the Oakley sets designed for those special festive moments. In my case, it’s relaxing on my new Tia sofa that I snagged at The Garden. I bought the entire living room set. I love the vintage design, and it’s hud controlled with texture change options. I’m using one of the seasonal ones, but it has plenty of gorgeous year round options, too. Speaking of vintage, how awesome is the space heater? I HAD to have that. It’s from 7 Emporium for The Mens Dept and it’s beautifully made, like all 7 items (and can be turned off). My hair is Melita, one of the six new styles Truth recently released, and I love the long, loose curls pulled over one shoulder. The house I am in is the Trilby Dacha, Scarlet Creative’s absolutely stunning Collabor88 home for December.

Santa, baby...

Finally, I have to show you this gorgeous new Glam Affair skin, Kaelyn. I love this skin. It’s just so soft and beautiful, which is classic Glam Affair. I am also debuting my new shape (only the face is different). I got bored! Rosa says I don’t look like “her Lucie” anymore, but I’m loving the change. My gorgeous eyes are the latest release from IKON, and they are mesh! You can find them at the current round of FaMESHed.

Kaelyn by Glam Affair

I hope to do a decor post tomorrow! I have so many wonderful Christmas goodies to show you.

My other house is a TARDIS

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair wraps up tonight, so if you haven’t been yet, do be sure to hurry on over! I’m not going to blather on because I have stuff to share, and due to being under the weather in RL, I haven’t shared it sooner. So… here’s the goods!

My adorable top is from ISON for Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. The “shirt” layer under it is texture change via a hud. The tights are from SySy’s as part of The Main Event.

Visit with the birds

You have may have heard of this little event called The Arcade. This gorgeous skin is from Glam Affair and is one variation of their Arcade skin Gemma. It’s youthful and gorgeous, and I fell hard for this face. The hair is a subscriber gift from Truth, so if you missed it, check the history on the subscriber in the store to see if it’s still available for redelivery! My eyes are from IKON, and they are from the Spectral eyes line he released at the current round of FaMESHed. They come with an awesome HUD and are definitely worth checking out. Best news is they’re still just L$150! I am only wearing the texture layer here, and for those who aren’t into mesh eyes, you still get all 5 sizes of texture eyes, too.

What a Gem...

This next pic features items from various stores and events, including Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Full credits below, but the laptop, MP3 player and wires are all from Vespertine for Geeks ‘n’ Nerds.

My other house is a TARDIS

Here’s a closer look… the adorable little kitten curled up on my laptop is from Fabuleux and has holding poses. I just couldn’t resist rezzing her, and we all know cats love laptops.

Not a creature was stirring

More soon!

Getting my geek on

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair opened this week, and this is an event that every geek/nerd simply must visit! There is something for nerds and geeks of all types… and the build for the event is very cute and easy to navigate (and I say that as someone who gets lost at pretty much every event ever). I’m definitely a serious geek/nerd and usually walk around in a group tag that says “Proud Dork.” So this fair was just about custom made for me (and people like me!).

I’m wearing the jumper of a dress from SySy’s for this event, along with eyeliner from Mons that’s also at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. My awesome boots are from fri.day. fri.day is a part of the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, but these boots are a Shoetopia release! You still have a few days to head over to Shoetopia and grab all the gorgeous shoes. Remember, this is a charity event, so every designer has out at least one 100% donation item, and the charity, Soles 4 Souls is working to help, among others, the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. This is a way you can do your own part to help a great cause, while having fun shopping, so do be sure to check it out before it ends on the 30th!

My Favorite Dorks

The build I used in these pics is the Neva Captain’s House from Scarlet Creative for the current round of Collabor88. It’s a really unique, quirky build and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I plan to take some more pics of it soon, but in the meantime, do take a minute to visit the demo at Collabor88! It’s a not-to-be-missed home for anyone who loves the unusual.

Most of the decor items are from the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. You will find the full credits at the bottom of this post, with the ones available at the fair tagged accordingly. My cute pose, complete with prop, is from Kuro In Motion. It’s not a fair item, but seemed appropriate for the post!

Dork Side Collage

To those who celebrate, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! More from me soon.
