Events, events, events!

So many events, so little time! This post is a hodgepodge of events, featuring the Under The Sea Expo, http://seraphimsl.com/2013/06/08/collabor88-june-edition/, The Garden, My Attic and The Outlet! *wipes brow* That’s a lot of eventage! Yeah, I know that’s not a word.

First up, I love this gown from The Muses, available at Under The Sea Expo. It’s such a unique style. It’s a mesh/system hybrid (the bikini top is system), and it’s great for RP or just for dramatic fun. I’m kind of obsessed with purple lately, so I had to wear the purple one.

The Siren's Walk

I paired the dress with some gorgeous jewels from Ellabella, and this stunning Glam Affair skin for this month’s Collabor88. My eyes are from IKON (big surprise, I’m sure). Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Nights Skysphere.

In the fog

I fell in love with this dress from Evie’s Closet, also from the Under The Sea Expo. It’s another mesh hybrid, with system layer seashells and a flexi skirt. Honestly, it’s been so long since I’ve worn anything flexi, I’d forgotten how fun it can be to photograph when you’re using AO poses (as I did here). Mesh is awesome, but it doesn’t move the way flexi does, obviously, and sometimes I miss that sense of movement in photos! This adorable ice cream cart gives wearable ice cream props, and it’s from What Next for The Garden. The floating lounger in the background is also from What Next, for Summerfest (more on that coming to a blog near you soon!).

Land Legs

My hair is from Ploom, and it’s at My Attic. I loved the starfish add on so much. I decided it would be perfect for this dress. All I could think when I saw this dress was of when Ariel gets legs in The Little Mermaid. Obviously, her clothes were uhm, different from this… but still. I imagined Daryl Hannah in Splash, too (totally dating myself here). And I thought… mermaids must like ice cream, too! My hands are SLink and the nails are from A:S:S Unicorn applier pack. The skin is Aeva for The Outlet. I loved the colors of the eyeshadow, and thought they worked nicely with my starfish hair adornment! Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Days Skysphere.

Mermaids like ice cream too

More from me soon! There are more events to cover, after all!

Deck The Halls!

I can’t believe Christmas is finally just about here… only a few days remain! So much I want to blog still!

The Outlet is a sales event that has some great items. One of the available items is this gorgeous, fun, and quirky dress from Greymoon. I feel like I’m all dressed up as my husband’s gift in this sexy, sparkly getup! There are 3 colors at the outlet, including the reverse of what I’m wearing and a purple w/white! Each is only L$75, so check it out! I completed my look with the gorgeous new Pomona jewelry set from Cae, one of Truth’s newest hairs and my sassy red patent heels from G Field. This prop is from Hopscotch, and it’s appropriately called Sexy Christmas. It has multiple poses built into it, and it’s a lot of fun to play with.

Unwrap Me

This skin is another of the Aeva skins for the holidays. This one is Jaci. It’s dramatic and stunning, and perfect for the more formal holiday themed events you might attend!

Deck The Halls

Hopefully I will get another post done before Christmas, but if not a very Merry one to all who celebrate. ❤

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.

Three for the price of One…

So, I am a bit behind. As a result, you get a special Three for the price of One blog post from me! First on the agenda, Week Four of Raid Your Closet.

I love autumn clothes. I love layers and tights and jackets. I also love the “smart, but sexy” look, which is what I was going for with this week’s RYCC. I paired this cute skirt from Blueberry with a blazer by House of Fox that I grabbed from the last round of Collabor88. I added some fuzzy tights from JANE, these adorable not-quite-boots shoes from G Field, a sketchbook from Elymode and my Gos Intuition glasses and considered myself good to go. Oh, and the super sexy but softly feminine t-shirt under my blazer is from Sleeping Koala. Anyone who thinks textured clothes are a thing of the past needs one of these t-shirts. The detail work is incredible and they are perfect for layering!

Book Smart

Next up… The Black Market! I loved this outfit from Sakide for The Black Market. It’s really cute, sexy and girly. I paired it with a recent shoe release from Severed Garden. These Nana pumps have a hud and there are so many color combinations. They are some crazy high heels, but that is offset by how freakin’ cute they are! The sheer tights are a new release from Izzie’s. I was absolutely thrilled with this release because I’ve been dying for some “pantyhose” type tights.

Feigned Innocence

The stunning skin is the newly released Jaci from Aeva. Though the Bare and Belle Amie versions have been out for a few weeks, Amesha recently released the full makeup line. This soft, delicate and perfectly autumnal makeup is called Chocolat. My jewelry set is Enchanted from Cae, and it’s so pretty. It’s texture change with multiple metal options. For this look I used the rose gold metal.

Aeva Jaci 01 - Chocolat

Next, a bit of homestyle. I used my Anastasia Autumn skybox again for this pic. The chair is from Mudhoney for The Outlet and comes in several color options. I used the teal because I liked the unexpected splash of color. The leather sofa is from WM, also for The Outlet. It’s texture change, and includes an option you can tint. The bookcase and pile of books is by FD Decor for The Black Market. Like the sofa & chair, this is also mesh. I was exhausted from standing in those heels, so I plopped on the Emma chair to relax.

Autumn Living Room

That’s all from me for now. Soon I’ll have more from Cinema!

Bohemian Elegance…

This post is sort of a hodgepodge mixup… but the unifying force is recent releases from Truth and Aeva/Heartsick!

First up, the newest face from Aeva. This skin is called Halo, and it’s absolutely stunning. It features the softness that Amesha’s Jewell’s skins are known for, and an undeniable sophistication and elegance. I’m wearing the Dusk makeup in Tone 1. The brows on this skin are very dark, so I used the No Brow option and added a tattoo layer brow I had from Cupcakes. My jewelry is from Cae, and it’s called Entangled. I might’ve suggested that name to the lovely and talented Caelan Hancroft when she showed me a sneak peek of this set. 🙂 The jewelry is texture change, which I love, and this metal is silver.

Aeva - Halo Dusk (Tone 1)

The hair in these pics is a new release from Truth called Mayim. I am totally in love with this one. It’s romantic, and with the slightly messy quality it can be casual or more formal. I went for casual elegance in this top from Kamouraska – coming soon to the new edition of The Outlet (opening October 15th), and a pair of coldLogic recent jean release. My adorable shoes are from Ingenue for the October edition of Collabor88. For just L$88 these are a must have in multiple colors! I have the lilac, shown here, as well as the black… and I might just go back for more before it ends next month! I shot this next pic in the Tuscan build from MultiScene.

Solitude

If you’re not familiar with MultiScene, check it out. It’s $L30/hr to rent and you get so many amazing options. It’s a great source for bloggers and photographers, or even store owners who want “scenes” for their vendor ads. But for my next look, I knew just what I wanted. I created this look using a summery dress from NiNight Creations, but I added a turtleneck from fri.day and lace stockings from G Field, and the oh-so-popular Stagioni boots from Maitreya (I finally bought a pair) to give it a fall, boho chic look. My friend Altair commented that I looked ready for a poetry reading, and that inspired this pic that I called Open Mic Night. I went to the very popular, and utterly adorable Pixel Bean Cafe to take these shots.

Open Mic Night

This hair is also a new release from Truth, called Havana. I’m wearing Blaze, which is one of the new shades from the Fades color pack. I really like these colors! They are fun and playful, and suited this look. The jewelry is Maxi Gossamer, and my eyes are from the new Kaleido series at IKON. This skin is a revamp of an old Heartsick skin called Chloe. Aeva is the name of all of Amesha’s new skins, and Heartsick is the older brand… but she revamped Chloe and I’m glad she did because it’s beautiful. I’m wearing the Asylum makeup in the Cream shade.

Heartsick - Chloe - Asylum - Cream

These were all a lot of fun to shoot! I am definitely in love with these skins.

Stay tuned because soon I will be blogging from Cinema. If you haven’t heard about this event, check out the details here. I’m so incredibly excited and honored to get to blog this one. I’ve been looking forward to it since I heard about it, which at this point feels like months ago.
