Bubblez Designs, Haus of Darcy, and Gifts and Sales from around the Grid

Bubblez Designs has some really nice items out right now, and I thought I’d show them to you, along with lots of freebies and sale items that I picked up in the last few days.  This is the time of year for gifts, and boy, have our designer friends been generous!

First up is a gorgeous new outfit from Bubblez, which is *not* free, but is a total bargain for all you get.  The Blood Rose outfit comes with the dress with lots of sculpted embellishments, gloves, legcuffs, earrings, shoes (not the ones I’m wearing though), and the hair with ornaments.  It also comes with the hair ornaments separate so that you can wear your own hair with it.  It’s easily resizeable, too.  The Bubblez Doll Shoes are not part of this outfit, but they are another new release from that store.  The shoes that come with the dress are pretty, but they’re flats and I prefered the way these cut-out heel shoes with lace socks looked with the dress.

Aren’t the shoes cute?  And they come in lots of other colors, too, besides this Blood Rose pair.  You can also get a closer look at the beautiful sculpted rose and chains adornments on the outfit.  So cool!  The skin I’m wearing is a recent gift from [VoiD] – check the notices for the “Share the Love” gift.  I’ve added the makeup tattoo from the Gala Phoenix group gift coz I love love those red lips!  I’ve also added new piercings from Haus of Darcy, which has lots of newness out right now.  HoD also has done new colors for their piercings – like a pretty pomegranate, green, purple, and blue.  I’m wearing the Lisbeth piercing in the color called Seep (red).  The green Starlight eyes are a Christmas gift from the Plastik.

Next up is a L$12 Fur Vest from Bubblez, with which I’ve created a LOTD.  I never do those (mostly coz they’re time consuming to put together), but some recent additions to my inventory just begged me to throw them together.  So, here I’m wearing a very cool mesh skirt from Aura, which is having a sale right now.  It comes in lots of colors, and with or without the skull on the side.  Love that skirt!  The awesome boots are from the hot, new store Death Row Designs.  These are the Boundcuffed Chain boots in black.  They come in tons of other dirty colors, too.  They’re messy and worn and totally cool.  You gotta love boots with handcuffs, am I right?  😀  The shirt worn under the fur vest is from Roots, the clothing annex of RedMint, which is also having a huge sale right now.  The skull top (which is for guys, I think, but worked for me under the vest), also comes with the ripped, chained gloves and a hoodie.

The beautiful skin is a special Christmas makeup of Illusory’s Paige skin line.  It’s available as part of the Year End Sale at Illusory, Aura, Cheeky Pea, and a few other stores working together.  The necklaces (I’m wearing two) are from Forsaken – the red one is the Biohazard Batty necklace, and the longer one is the Key to the Beyond Necklace.  The hair is also relatively new – this is Wasabi Pills’ Clementine style which has a color-change hairtie. Unfortunately, SL was being stupid for me and not allowing me to change the color of the hairband.  It was no big deal though since I was wearing black and grey anyway. 🙂  Finally, the piercings are again from Haus of Darcy, this is a reworking of the popular Crow’s Crux piercing set.  Aydan has added new colors, including this pretty red Seep color.  The piercing comes with and without the crow feather dangling from your mouth.

Finally, I have one more LOTD outfit to show you, again built around an item from Bubblez Designs.

This is the relatively new Bubblez Winter Jacket in a nicely done black leather.  It includes the cute chained tie, and also comes with a version without the tie, and the tie separately.  You can mix and match to your heart’s content.  The teensy, barely there, mini is another sale item from Roots – the high waisted mini jeans set.  The Death Row Designs boots here are the blue version of the Boundcuffed Chained boots.  The hair is part of Exile’s Christmas subscribo gift.  I think this is meant to be a guy’s style, but I love it!  The skin is the Curio group gift Angel skin, worn in the Moonbeam tone.  I have to say that I love the skin, but I wish it had darker eyebrows!  This is the “dark” version, too!  I tried to find an eyebrow tattoo in my inventory, to no avail.  But, I shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth, so thank you Gala; I love the skin, especially the makeup tattoo with the full, red lips!  The earrings are part of Emo-tions’ Christmas gifts, which (sadly) have been removed.  Yep, the tree is gone, and poor little Kat didn’t get a chance to grab them. :/  One last item to mention is the third new release piercing from Haus of Darcy.  This is the Reach Piercing set in the green color called Tide.  It took me quite awhile to fit the separate pieces, but I think it was totally worth it.  HoD makes the coolest piercings, don’t they?

Whew!  Well, that’s it for now.  If I don’t blog again soon, I wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year, filled with all the wonderful things you can imagine.   Until next time,

Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!

Oops!  Post edited to let you all know that Bubblez has a new sim, a new look, a new landmark, and a store-wide SALE!  Everything except new releases are on sale for only L$50.  And there’s a new pretty mermaid necklace in the lucky board!  See you there!
