Meet Devon

[TheSkinnery] is participating in the annual Skin Fair with a new release for Catwa’s bento heads. I fell in love with this face immediately. Devon is so impish and adorable, and I knew it would be the perfect skin for a bit of a whimsical, fantasy themed post. I visited StoryBrooke Gardens to shoot these pics. It’s a lovely place for spring pics. Plus, if you join the Baja Norte group (the sims are owned by the same person, Lauren Bentham) you can rezz, too! My eyes are also from [TheSkinnery], from the Palermo collection which you can find in the mainstore. I liked how they matched the colors in the wings (my fairy outfit is from Decoy, more on that to come!). But seriously, look at this face. Isn’t it super cute? I love the lips in particular, but all of it is just lovely. I’m also wearing one of the lipglosses, sold separately for it at Skin Fair. I have it on my own shape on Catwa’s Kimberly head. It may not look remotely the same on different heads or shapes, so definitely demo first! My stunning necklace and matching earrings by Cae are at the current round of FaMESHed and match the shoes you’ll see in the next pic. Also, you get 3 different earring styles with this set (sold together with the necklace or individually).

My vines, bikini and (bento!) wings are courtesy of Decoy’s Forest Fae gacha. Please note that this was a recent event release and is not yet in the Mainstore, but should be soon. My gorgeous shoes are the new collaboration between Gos and Cae, available at FaMESHed and designed to match the necklace and earrings you saw in the previous photo.

Morning Fairy

Here’s a closeup of those shoes, unedited, to show the intricate detail in the jewels. Normally in a post where I am a fairy, I’d go barefoot. But if ever there were shoes suitable for a spring fae? These are them (click the image to see it larger)!

Colder Weather

Though I’ve already changed my homestead over to spring, the truth is spring in Colorado, especially at 9,000 feet in the Rockies, often arrives late. However, this year it’s been unseasonably warm for weeks and just in the past few days have we returned to more normal February temperatures (for which I am grateful, as warmer and dry are not good for wildfire season).

If you’re not quite ready to let go of winter yourself this gorgeous coat from Neve might be just what you need to keep warm! I thought this coat would be a great match for the new pencil skirts release by Just Because at the Mainstore. These skirts have plain and lace options. You can also do lace on just the outer panels of the skirt. It was overly complicated with the plaid coat, but it’s truly lovely so do check these out! My adorable shoes are from fri.day and you can get them at Kustom9 through March 10th. I love the bows and the straps. I’m a sucker for any sort of Mary Jane type shoe, although these are called Elsie Janes!

Spring In Her Step

Now, I had heard a rumor… maybe you’ve heard it, too. But the rumor was that Mallory Cowen of LAQ would soon be releasing a Bento mesh head. I decided to ask Mallory and she has confirmed that this is true! I’m super excited about this because I truly loved both of the heads she released before Bento hit the grid. I don’t know when the new head is being released, but I am confident it will be stunning!

I’m wearing Maxine with the Sophia applier in these pics. If you’re not waiting for Bento and want a new head, I definitely recommend trying one of LAQ’s. They’re both lovely. I am wearing the new Tokyo eyes released at Izzie’s. These come with system eyes, mesh eyes and Catwa appliers. I went for a bit of heterochromia and paired one Amber eye with one Teal! I am really fussy about the eyes I wear in SL, but I love these so much. They’re different for me, but in a good way for sure! Incidentally, I also shot both of these pics on the Izzie’s sim. It’s still winter, but not sure how much longer that will be the case. The Fiore necklace by Cae is at Whimsical through March 3rd. There are also matching earrings (not shown here) and you can buy the set or the individual pieces.

I'm stuck in colder weather

I don’t wanna grow up

Stockholm & Lima did the most adorable set for The Epiphany. It’s called “failed adulting,” and the rare is this cozy “blanket fort” skybox. I’m also featuring the bed, candy glasses, rug and table from this set. Personally, I look at this skybox and bed, and think “winning adulting,” but that’s just me. I’m still a Toys R Us kid! My outfit features Fishy Strawberry’s adorable top for Geeks ‘N Nerds 2015. When I put this top on and saw what it said, I seriously couldn’t stop giggling. Which confirmed for me that I am, in fact, a nerdy geek. Aside from “textually active,” there’s “stay weird (a message I also support fully)”, and a plain option. You can also change the suspender colors, and there are plaid, leather and argyle options.

I don't wanna grow up

My leggings are a recent release from Neve, the new store from the creators of coldLogic. My adorably geeky glasses are from Label Motion, also for Geeks ‘N Nerds, as are my pencil socks by Izzie’s and my cute pigtails from Wasabi Pills. The cute little tv you see in the corner near the unicorn bed is one of Hopscotch’s All The TV Feels, the love version, another Geeks ‘N Nerds release. Isn’t it super cute?! The chair I’m goofing around on is from Cheeky Pea and is at The Mens Dept with multiple color versions. I’m on the tartan one because I love tartan, and I really enjoyed adding tartan to argyle and houndstooth patterns.

Geeks N Nerds is now open and runs through November 1st!

The Epiphany runs through November 12th!

Treasure Hunters!

Wizarding Faire ends in mere hours. This is the final day, but I couldn’t resist showing a few last goodies! This adorable dress is from The Little Bat, and it comes in various colors that represent the various houses of Hogwarts. I’m wearing the Gryffindor (or “lion”) colors. Anya Ohmai outdid herself with the creation of these adorable nifflers. Nifflers, as you may recall from The Goblet Of Fire, are adorable little treasure hunters that Hagrid introduces his students to during Care Of Magical Creatures. As you can see, there are many different options, both for rezzing and holding (there’s a second pose for holding not pictured here), and they come in a variety of colors. They are truly adorable, even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan (though that idea makes me sad, lol). My shoes are a new release from fri.day, available at Shiny Shabby. My hair is from Wasabi Pills, for the current (and soon to close) round of FaMESHed.

Treasure Hunters
I also promised in this post to show you the inside of the adorable little build Larkham & Co. did for Wizarding Faire. The stained glass windows are so lovely. The fireplace is empty, and I thought it a perfect place to rezz the floating candles available in The Little Bat’s Wizarding Decor gacha. These actually move, by the way! Also available at Wizarding Faire is this incredibly cool clock from EDYN. It’s based on the Weasley Family clock in the books. Like that clock, you can feature family members on this one! It has a hud and easy instructions, and it’s just SO COOL. So go check that out, along with all the other goodies at Wizarding Faire, before the magic comes to an end later tonight!

Lady of the Keep

I was inspired by Peqe’s beautiful gown from The Conquest. I have this gorgeous build from Dysfunctional Designs, and it’s a skybox with a surround which I just love because I can just rezz it and use it right away without worrying what’s out the windows! In this case, there’s also this gorgeous water feature built right in, and I knew it would be a perfect scene for this lovely dress.

Whispering waters

I am wearing one of the new releases Wasabi Pills has for The Conquest, and Cae’s gorgeous necklace which can be found at the event as well. The skin is from Glam Affair, another makeup of Eles, which I previously blogged here. This skin is a gacha, available at The Conquest, which I always like because I can pass off extras to alts.

Lady of the Keep

I should note that this dress has the arms positioned this way (and your arms will need be completely alpha’d out to wear it), so the poses I’ve used are not represented in their true form.

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

The Arcade’s final hours…

The end of another round of the wonderfully addictive Arcade is upon us! Be sure to stop over and play the machines because sometimes these items are never sold again, and other times it can be a while before they are added to mainstore gacha collections! You’ll find a handy shopping guide here, if you need it!

I am featuring items from Pixel Mode and Theosophy’s Arcade offerings. Both have cute food related sets. Theosophy’s Whoa, Sweet Food Truck, Dude set is full of goodies, and Pixel Mode’s Le Petit Chef is perfect for all your summer BBQ needs. First up, Pixel Mode! All items in the below pic, except for the napkin dispenser and the utensil holder, are from Pixel Mode. The napkin dispenser and utensils are from Theosophy’s set.

Cookout

I set up the Theosophy food truck and got to work behind the counter. Hey, an av needs a summer job to pay for shopping, right? My cute top is from Maitreya for Collabor88, and my skin is another item from The Arcade. This is Glam Affair’s Livy.
