Carnivals and Hunts – Death Row Designs, Cog & Fleur, et al.

1

I’ve been a busy little bee.  There are so many hunts and limited time events at the moment!  One event I hit several times was the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  Oh my poor linden balance!  Those little machines are the devil!  But I managed to get a few items I really wanted – not all, sadly.  One vendor in particular had several items I wanted, and all were awesome.  Death Row Designs had these fantastic wings at the Gacha Carnival – fairy and mechanical wings (two types) in a zillion colors, plus some rare animated ones that you could wear in addition to the static wings.  The wings are no longer available at the Carnival, but you can find them at DRD’s mainstore (see LM under “details” below).

These are DRD’s mechanical wings called Steam Wings Brass.  They are so beautifully detailed with the shading, chains, and rods.  I admit, I haven’t taken them off in days!  Another little item I got at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is my little apple bracelet from Enfant Terrible – which is another new-to-me shop that I will be following with great interest.  My last worn item from the Gacha Carnival is from la petite morte – my black roses eyepatch.    If I go back to the Carnival, it will be for the rare version of this eyepatch, which I just must have!  I have an extra variety pack of the roses eyepatches, if anyone wants to trade.  I’ll even add some other things you may want in order to get the special version!  Any takers?? 🙂

Here you can see the lovely wings, bracelet, and eyepatch better.  And my horns!  I love my Valentine’s themed new horns from Remarkable Oblivion.  They’re made from bundled arrows, some with red and white striped fletches, all interspersed with red hearts.  Amazingly creative work!  There’s another store that’s on my “must watch” list – Remarkable Oblivion – love it!  These horns, along with a non-Valentine’s themed pair, are available at this month’s FaMESHed.

I think my wild, spiky hair ties together this whole mish-mash of styles I have going on here.   I was so pleased to see this appear at the latest TDR Fusion from LoQ in a bunch of colors for one crazy, low price.  TDR Fusion rocks!  It also comes in a version for guys.  Nice!

Last but certainly not least, is my beautiful outfit from Cog & Fleur, which is their prize for A Gothic Romance Hunt – only L$1, people!  And the outfit includes the necklace and the boots!  Omg, I love Cog & Fleur!  Thank you for going the extra mile with your hunt prize!  Additionally, you will not be hunting for hours for the little red rose – it’s extremely easy to find!  The gold braid against the blood red fabric just make the whole outfit pop, and the textures are very well-done.  This is one of those hunt gifts that you will be pleased to keep in your inventory long after the hunt is over.  I will leave you with one final photo of the ensemble. Thanks for reading, and …

^^DRBC^^ and Deathrow Designs (DRD) – Part 1

0

I have a new favorite store.  It goes by ^v^DRBC^v^, which stands for Death Rocker Betty Crocker.  The name alone is awesome.  Once I wandered around inside, I liked the store even more.  While it is not a huge store, what it does have is quite inventive and fun, and of course, very punky goth/lolita.  I ran over there this past week because a really cute dress was on sale for Woeful Wednesday.  While there, I had to grab up a few more items.  Good news for everyone – the item I paid full price for is now on sale, so you guys can get it cheaper than I did. 🙂

The first item is the Sweet Tart Lovesick dress in the “b movie” print.  Sweet Tart is actually the name of a somewhat softer, less grungy line of clothing at DRBC.  It comes in various other prints, but this is the one that was on special for Woeful Wednesdays last week, and it was my fave anyway!  It gives you a good idea of the inventive apparel at DRBC.  I love that there’s a little embellishment of black flowers on the right strap, and the print is nicely done.  As usual, it comes in various mesh sizes, sure to fit any avatar.

I’m also wearing some rather new boots from Death Row Designs – the Postapocalyptic Nerdstompers in Coal.  Jaimy Hancroft of DRD does great grunge boots – they always have various doo-dads and junk added to them to go with the theme.  These have various computer cords and wires wrapped around them – very cool.  They also come in several sizes to better fit your feet and legs.  They are available in several colors, this being the coal (black) color.  If you want to see them closer, just click to enlarge the photo below.

Here’s my obligatory closeup to better show my purty, gothy skin, and the detail on the bodice of the dress.

So, my skin is a new group gift from Essences called Emma.  It’s nice and dramatic, and the group was free to join when I did a few days ago.  My hair is from Loq, the Bacardi hair that is available at The Dressing Room Fusion – you get a fatpack with lots and lots of colors for only L$70.  A bargain!  My raven necklace is another item at TDR Fusion, this time from [glow] studio.  I have a serious real life fascination with crows, so I have an inventory full of raven and crow themed items in SL.  I had to add this necklace to the collection, and the price was certainly right!  Don’t you just love TDR?  Such great designers, and such great prices.  I hope they never stop!

Well, I’m realizing now that this post is pretty long already, and I still have another DRBC outfit to show you!  So, I’m gonna make this part one, and do a separate post on the second outfit.  So, until just a little later,

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