Miss October

In a month full of events there are two that are definitely worth a visit. One is the epic, interactive, incredible HavenHollow. If you go, bring a friend (or more than one). And if your computer can handle it, go through on ultra. I was able to, thanks to my recently acquired new video card, and it was really spectacular.

Another is L’Amitie Fall Market, a small, intimate gathering of talented designers offering adorable items.

This pic features the adorable Little Granny avatar from The Secret Store, which you can purchase at the HavenHollow Souvenir Shop. This avatar includes an adorable AO and a hud to change the colors of Granny’s glasses, sweater, skirt and slippers. There are also some free gifts at HavenHollow’s Souvenir Shop, including a cookie tray from The Secret Store that works with the Granny av.

The bench Granny is rather saucily lounging on is from Consignment for L’Amitie. This bench features 8 metal and plank colors, as well as season change leaves, making it perfect for year round use!

Miss October

HavenHollow closes at 11:59 pm on Halloween.

L’Amitie Fall Market runs through November 2nd.

Don’t miss out! Check them out today.

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.

Witchy Business

I love Halloween. I love autumn. Both of these things have been discussed before, so I won’t wax on about them, but I had to say it again. Collabor88’s October round is just chock full of autumnal, Halloweenish goodness. If you’ve not yet been, you definitely should go over there before it ends because while the items are definitely inspired by the season, most of them will work year-round!

Kuro In Motion’s recent prop pose release was very helpful in my quest to complete the scene I’d created using the Remedy Caravan that Scarlet Creative has in this round of Collabor88. I fell in love with this caravan, and I bought it even though at the time I had absolutely no clue whatsoever what I’d do with it! Once I’d collected some other Collab items, like the chair from floorplan and the tarot cards from flowey, I figured it out. I knew this little caravan would be perfect for the travelling fortune telling witch on the go. My original concept was to wear something that felt… well… vintage. But then I built this sexy menswear inspired outfit entirely around Truth’s Dylan hair, and I realized I would simply be a modern, business woman witch on the go! Here I am resting up for my next session!

Witch at rest

Fortune tellers require clients, so I snagged a friend to be my victim. Uhm. Client. Though, to be honest, the cards were not kind to her.

Witchy Business

In this last pic, you get a better look at my Eerie jewelry from Cae, which is seasonally appropriate. However, it’s definitely not limited to just the Halloween season. You can change the charms via a hud, and there are many options including the moons I am showing here. There are also ghosts, owls, cats, witch hats, spiders, pumpkins and bats… you definitely need to check out this set! I love moons and owls, so I know I will get year-round use of this set.

I’m also wearing the newly released Vera skin from Glam Affair in the Jamaica tone. I feel like a broken record when I blog Glam Affair because a. I always seem to love each new release even more than the last and b. I just can’t stop talking about how gorgeous they are! Vera is no exception to the trend. It’s flawless.

Autumn Collaboration

A new round of Collabor88 opened this week, and the colors are rich, vibrant and perfect for October! You can check out the whole catalog here. It’s a must-not-miss round (but aren’t they all?)!

I fell head-over-heels for this dress from The Secret Store. It just screamed my name, and I had to fight the urge to fatpack it. But if I’d done that, I wouldn’t have been able to grab so many of the other goodies I wanted, so I simply picked my favorite color combo. The gorgeous house in the background is from Trompe Loeil, and also at Collabor88. I will have more photos of that before this round ends, but you simply must see it in person to appreciate the rich textures and amazing details on this build. The potted mums I snagged recently from MudHoney, and the pile of pumpkins are from Eleventh Hour’s pumpkin gacha at the Fantasy Gacha Fair (more from that event soon). I bought my leafy autumn grass from Zigana last year, and the adorable log path was a wonderful find from Alchemy for just 1L! The autumn rules sign was part of vespertine’s Arcade gacha this past round. I don’t know if they’ve made those available in the mainstore yet.

Autumn Collaboration

This stunning skin is from Collabor88, too. It’s by Glam Affair and is another in the Neva series. This is one of my all-time favorite Glam Affair faces, so I was absolutely thrilled to see it in two tones (Jamaica, as seen here & Artic). I also grabbed some new lashes recently. Mon Cheri released their Falsies lashes, and I have to say, I love them. You have two options for wearing them; one where the bottom and top lashes are one object, and one where you add them separately. They are hud controlled and there are lots of fun variations, like dip dyed and glitter. There are also 3 styles of lashes. I highly recommend the demo, which you can use to practice fitting. I’m not the best at fitting lashes, and it took me a while, but I did get them to fit (about as well as I ever get lashes to fit) after about 45 minutes.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

Precariously Perched

I have more Collabor88 goodies to show you! I decided to visit Isabelli Anatine’s sim Kittens Heaven, which she’s opening to the public soon. It’s a lovely sim, and you should keep an eye out for opening day because it’s definitely worth a visit!

I fell in love with this dress from The Secret Store for Collabor88’s 2nd birthday celebration. There are appropriately two versions of this dress and there are plenty of color choices to suit every mood! My shoes are fri.day’s Peggy heels for SLink medium feet. They are also at Collabor88.

Precariously Perched

I am so utterly in love with the Lamb hair for Collab. First off, I love this color red. Yeah, it’s not exactly a “naturally occurring” shade, but it’s lush and makes me feel dramatic and sexy. My skin is another version of Katya by Glam Affair, and it’s also at Collabor88 this round.

Katya by Glam Affair for Collabor88

If you haven’t already visited Collab this month, you really should! I am so in love with the items in this edition. It’s hard to try to cram them all in, but I still have plenty I want to show you, so stay tuned!

Lunch Date

I wanted to show you some more of the awesome items you can snag at the Love Donna Flora fundraiser. I adore this top from The Secret Store, which is one of the many lovely items you can buy at Love Donna Flora. I love the cheerful colors, the belt (which is texture change!) and the feeling that it could go from a more professional look to casual very easily. I decided to pair it with these sparkly jeans from Tutti Frutti. My shoes are from SLink, for the medium mesh feet, and are also available at Love Donna Flora. I love these slip-on satin pumps. They are classy and elegant, and helped me dress up my look a bit. I’m wearing one of the newest hair releases from Truth, Qopi. I love the structured messiness of this updo, and the fact that it’s focused on the side, instead of the top/back like most updo styles are. My cute bag is from The Secret Store.

Lunch Date

This also seemed like a good chance to show off the stunning new skin from Pink Fuel. Harley is so pretty. There’s the softness I expect from Pink Fuel skins, but there are so many makeup options and add ons that you can really customize this skin to suit your needs. The bare skin will definitely work for kid and teen avs, but “dressed up” with makeup, Harley is easily sophisticated and sexy, too! Also, check out my pretty necklace! A dear friend bought me this skin as a gift, and I just want to say thank you to her. I love it! This pendant is from Cae for Love Donna Flora. There are multiple metal options, as well as gem colors!

Harley

Oh, and here’s a better look at my perfect pumps! I hope Siddean will release these in more colors (there are 3 colors at the LDF event). They are just so cute!

Perfect Pumps

I took these pics at the lovely Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe. When I saw the What Next tables, I knew that I had to end my afternoon with a cool glass of white wine. It also gave me a chance to show off my lovely manicure, compliments of Orc Inc, and also available at Love Donna Flora.

Flirty Friday

I decided I should take another pass through Collabor88 before it ends in less than 2 weeks. I know Collabor88 was “born” in August, and I’m hoping they’ll be doing a special birthday bash edition. Fingers crossed! In the meantime, there is plenty to be found at the current edition, and it’s really one of my favorite themes ever. Soft, dreamy, romantic colors prevail, and the flirty charm just captivated me.

I fell in love with this top from The Secret Store. It comes in some really fun colors and patterns, but I’ve been in need of some more neutral pieces, so I went with the white. It may be basic, but with the lovely lacey pattern, it’s far from boring! I snagged another pair of the cute SLink add on heels from BOOM, too. I had the red, and decided the white pair was in order! My skirt is also from Collab. I liked the versatility of this piece. It’s sexy, but cute. The leather gives it a bit of edge, and also means it won’t be out of place come September. Don’t hit me! I admit it… I’ve been thinking fall in my fashion lately. Brace yourselves! It’s coming to my blog soon. But for now… oh, by the way my cute pose is another from Pretense for Love Donna Flora. I’ll have lots more from that event soon, too. Stay tuned!

Black & White Summer

My gorgeous skin is also from Collabor88, and it’s another version of Glam Affair’s gorgeous Lulu. I admit to possible bias with this skin since I’ve had more than one person give me the nickname Lulu in SL. This gorgeous hair is from SLink for Hair Fair. Isn’t the ginger shade pretty? I know I usually do a more true red, but lately gingers have been speaking to me, too.

Lulu Belle

I fell in love with the Trompe Loeil shower at Collabor88. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and although I am not using the official SL viewer, for those who are it is materials enabled. I look forward to the day Firestorm has materials, but using the official viewer makes me want to rip my hair out strand by strand, so for now, no materials for this chick! Still, it’s exciting to know I have products that will become even better whenever I do have a viewer I can handle that has materials enabled! I’ll just wait here in my beautiful garden shower for that day to come.

Waiting in the garden

You don’t see it well, but my skin in the above pic is the Pink Fuel skin Doll for Love Donna Flora. Not only is this skin gorgeous and supporting an awesome cause, it also is an incredible deal. For L$300 you get SLink appliers (hand and feet, worn here) and appliers for Lolas, Lush and Puffy breasts. Plus, there are dark and light brow options. The stunning hair I am wearing is one of Exile’s offerings at Hair Fair. I loved how romantic and lush these locks were!

Definitely be sure to check out all of these events. Remember, Hair Fair ends on Sunday. I linked to the Seraphim blog post because they’ve sorted their gallery by sim, and you’ll find slurls to all four sims there!
