How long has Ivey Deschanel been designing awesome fashions in SL? Pretty damned long. And she just keeps getting better and better. So, since I’m not blogging much these days, I thought I’d blog a couple of her latest items. She’s so damned prolific, too. She comes out with around four new releases each and every Friday, and puts a new round of older items in the Lucky Boards and Riot Vends every Wednesday. So, first up, is a new gothic gown from Snatch called the Babylon Gothic Gown. I’ve noticed that goth seems to be “out” in SL these days. Many, many goth designers have closed their doors – for example, Gothic Passionate Dreams closed earlier this month, and Nightshade hasn’t designed in months and months, just to name a couple. It’s a sad time for lovers of gothic fashion (like moi). But thank you, Ivey, for throwing us goths a bone in honor of Halloween.
Babylon comes in several colors, all for one low price. This is the teal version. The texture is lovely, and it’s cut down to *there* in front and back, with a full floor-length skirt, and prim flexy bell sleeves. I’m also wearing the all-new mesh Naboo claws from Virtual Insanity that fit like a dream. After a bit of tweaking, they move with your hand in all but the oddest positions. My skin is an oldie but a perfect goodie – Laq’s Mima Pale, which Laq released for Halloween last year. It’s been available all year, I think, but it’s especially appropriate for this time of year. It comes with bloody mouth versions, too! My jewelry is also an oldie but a goodie – from a store that’s no longer around, but who used to make some of my favorite jewelry – Ticky Tacky. I was thinking about them the other day and took a walk down memory lane trying on the beautiful pieces. Ok. Enough nostalgia. Finally, my hair. I love this Sage style from analog dog so much! It’s mesh, but with flexy add-ons. Great idea, no? It has the benefits of mesh – not sinking into your chest, etc., but also the movement of flexy pieces higher up. It’s my new fave hair!
Another new release from Snatch this week is the Liza Peplum top, which comes in a bazillion colors all in one pack. With Snatch, the demos are free, and I suggest you try them because you only get one size in the pack. In other words, you need to buy your size, like in real life. For me, I had to buy the XL even though I’m not a very big avie, because of my bewbs. If you notice, the top is a little big on me, but I love it anyway. It’s more comfy big (wink). Anyway, I love this style top – it’s a sheer black mesh top with a built in corset with a ruffled top. Really cute! I wanted a cute short mesh skirt to go with the top, so I found the slightly older release, Snatch’s Fritzie Cord Mini that matched up perfectly. Of course, the colors match perfectly because it’s all from Snatch. My hair this time is from another of my favorite hair designers, Wasabi Pills. This is the Nikki mesh style. I’m not sure why there’s some transparency issues where the mesh hair meets the mesh top, but I’m guessing it’s a mesh collision thingie. Color me ignorant of such matters. My boots are another old item which I pull out of my inventory often – Lapointe & Bastchild‘s Elise boots. My piercings are the same I wore in my last post. It shows how seldom I’ve been logging in that I didn’t change them. They’re from the inimitable Haus of Darcy called End of the Night.
Hope you liked. Thanks for reading! Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
