Catch Up Post No. 2

0

Yep, I’m still playing catch-up now that I have a few days of freedom because of Easter. Tonight I’ll show you some neat items I picked up at this month’s We Love Role-Play, which is open until a new round starts on May 4 (minus a day or so to set up the next round).

HoD Ineach WLR 3

My piercings, armor, and boots are all from We Love Role-Play.  The Íneach and DevIyn piercings come with the cool facial tattoos for a tribal look.  I’ll show you a better picture of them below.  The armor is by Ravensoul and is very well-made.  I feel quite protected wearing this. 🙂  The Ara boots from Just Design are yummy thigh-high flats, perfect for scampering through the woods on a hunt.  They come in several colors, including this version in ecru.  My hair is a recent grab from the Cutie Moon Fair – Tableau Vivant’s Moon Hair in the Spring colors pack.  Even though it’s made for Sailor Moon characters, I think it works great for many other uses.  Honestly, Tableau Vivant is one of my new favorite hair stores.  I love how they step outside the box a bit and try to create something unique.  Plus the mesh styles are perfectly done.  Close up time!

HoD Ineach WLR 7

Isn’t the hair pretty?  I love it!  Oh, and !deviousMind makes amazing, unique creations, too, don’t they?  After the last Fantasy Gacha Carnival in February, I ran around wearing all the various styles of this cool Harpyia outfit that I had won.  For some reason or other, I never got around to blogging it.  So, I’m glad I was finally able to put an outfit together with it.  And one more to show you the piercings even better…

HoD Ineach WLR 9

Love it so much!  There are actually three other styles of piercings from Haus of Darcy that are available at We Love Role-Play – all absolutely fabulous, as usual!  I’ll probably show you the others sometime soon, but don’t wait for me (lol) – go check them out yourself before WLR is over!

Hope you saw something you liked!  Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc.  Mwah!

The Show Must Go On

The show must go on
The show must go on
Outside the dawn is breaking
On the stage that holds
Our final destiny
The show must go on
The show must go on

Serafilms’ latest movie-inspired event is in progress, focusing this time on Moulin Rouge.  If you haven’t been yet, go soon because the event ends on March 31, and the offerings are awesome.

Razor Rouge 2

I never thought I’d want a mesh booty.  I find the ginormous butts and hips running around the grid simply cartoonish, and I prefer realism in SL.  Then I discovered that not only did Luck, Inc. make the “phat azz” but also the “cute azz.”  I tried the demo, and I was sold.  Honestly, I’m looking at my avi’s butt when I’m walking around shopping, so why not have a nice one? lol  The lovely skin I’m wearing, once again from Lumae and available at the Skin Fair, has an azz applier, so it was wonderful putting it all together.  I picked up my outfit at the aforementioned Moulin Rouge event – this is the Rouge outfit from Razor.  It has both regular pieces as well as appliers for the azzes (is that a word?) and lolas.  I’m wearing the applier on my cute azz, but my boobs are still plain old vanilla SL default.  I think the outfit is beautiful in its simplicity.  By the way, the outfit is black, but with all the atmospheric shaders on, the light gave it a purple glow, which I liked. 🙂

Razor Rouge 1

I’m also wearing my new SLink hands (yep, I succombed to that, too).  They really are beautiful, and even I agree that the default avatar hands are hideous.  I’m wearing the elegant style and I’ve applied some beautiful ZOZ nail polish.  My necklace is a gacha item from Lolapop called Blood Moon in the blood color.  Nice!  I also picked up the strange, spindly wings at the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair from UtopiaH.  Finally my hair is from ploom, the sort of slutty Bambi hair that I picked up at Whore Couture Fair recently.  It comes in “normal” colors, too, and I have no idea why I felt the need to buy the pastel pack.  But, I hope it works here.  Closeup time!

Razor Rouge 3

 

I’m such a lazy blogger, really. Look at that ridiculous golden rope hanging behind my ear!  I really should have gone back and taken another closeup shot sans rope.  (sorry, folks).  But anyway, you can see my pretty HoD piercings in that cool red color, as well as Lolapop’s pretty choker with the bats and shiny silver crown, etc.

Until next time, happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!

Souled Out, Morphine, et al.

Hello, lovely ones.  I’ve been busy both in RL and SL lately.  The marking period came to an end in RL, so I was busy grading; as for SL, it’s been hunts and fairs and festivals – oh my!  One cool outfit I found in a hunt is from Souled Out for the Mysteries of the Sea Hunt.  I know – not exactly a mermaid outfit, is it?  That’s why I had to nab it and show it to you!  The outfit consists of the mesh dress *and* the boots – what a bargain for only L$5!  And you have until April 10th to find it.  I also spent some time doing the Black Crowes Hunt (how could I resist?), and picked up the really nice choker (among other jewelry in the folder) at Adoness.  Cost?  L$10.  You have just until March 25th to grab the goodies in this hunt.

Souled Out Davy Jones 1

My next outing was to the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair – soooooo much good stuff there!  I picked up the awesome wings from Arise and the nicely crafted legchain from Death Row Designs.  But I wasn’t finished shopping!  Of course not.  There’s always more to grab in SL, so next up was the Skin Fair.  Isn’t this skin from Morphine just lovely?  If you’re looking for a “normal” skin – for non-roleplayers, non-goths, etc., then my pictures here don’t do Morphine’s work justice because, believe me, the skin is gorgeous.  I’m wearing Morphine’s new-for-Skin Fair Ghail skin with the add-on lipstick.  I’m also wearing lovely eyes from Morphine as well, in my favorite color – pale grey.

Souled Out Davy Jones 2

Truth came out with new hair recently, and I had to have this one – I love it when Truth does unusual styles!  This is Maisy (in black, of course), worn with the included buns.  They are optional, however, if you’d rather not wear them (nice touch).  In the next pic, you can see the lovely blush on the Morphine skin.  Usually, I don’t like skins with blush added; I usually find they’re too “cute” for me, but Morphine does it right here – love it!  My awesome piercings are from the inimitable Haus of Darcy.  This is an older set called Provocation, which I love because there are little unholy crosses on the lip piercings.  Provocation comes with a chest piercing as well, which you’ll notice on my chest right below the Adoness choker.  If you’re new to HoD, be advised there are three floors of older piercings at reduced prices.  Trust me, you’ll find some real bargains there for the quality of these piercings.

Snatch Still Going Strong

0

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*!

Details given in the text!  (It’s just easier that way, folks!)

+++Blue Blood+++ Nina for Horror Haute

0

Have you heard of Horror Haute?  It’s a monthly sale event that occurs during the last week of the month, showcasing dark and creepy stuff.  But, not everything is horrific, some of the items offered are just goth, and some are even cute. lol  But Ghani’s offering from Blue Blood is girly and goth at the same time.  I’ll show you what I mean.

How cute is this?!  But look closely coz amidst that colorful, flirty outfit are hands covered in dried blood!  Yes, that’s Horror Haute, baby!  I had to wear my awesome Bax boots coz, hey, I paid a fortune for them, and you’re going to have to look at them a few times at least. lol  The piercings are again from HoD, for Horror Haute, but I’ve changed from the silver color to the pomegranate to better matchy matchy.  Speaking of matching, I squealed with delight when I put on this Anarin hair, the newest release from ploom.  New to the ploom line are these cool, streaked, almost-neon colors.  They just sealed the “look” of this outfit for me!  I wish I had taken a pic of the back of this hairstyle.  It has a low-slung pony in back, and the streaked colors look so pretty running throughout.  My cute lolipop and tongue, as well as the poses are from Lolapop (heh, heh – lolipop/lolapop!) for the Starlust Gacha Carnaval.  And would you believe that I had no idea that the HoD piercing included a tongue piercing!  Imagine my surprise when my mouth popped open and voila!  another piercing!  Coool.  Ah, one last thing – those purty purple eyes – they were free with the rez day gift that Boo gave out a few weeks ago for VoiD group members.  Well, hope you enjoyed.  If so, run over to Blue Blood and nab this little number at a very special price before Horror Haute ends.  You’ve got until the 31st!  Oh, just a heads up – Blue Blood *just* moved – be sure to grab the new LM below!

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

Squeek!

I saw this cute grey dress on sale at Squeek for Woeful Wednesday, so yeah, I’m a bit late blogging it.  Who knows?  Maybe the vendor hasn’t been changed yet.  In any case, it’s a pretty dress that caught my eye, so I took some pics and hell yeah, I’m gonna blog it!

I’m wearing some of the same items from the new Dressing Room collection that I blogged yesterday – the bare feet from YS&YS, the skin from Glam Affair, the lipstick from Fishy Strawberry.  I’m also wearing again the new piercing for Horror Haute from Haus of Darcy.  I am wearing a couple of new items, though.  The Tortured Love Choker is new from Lolapop, also for Horror Haute.  It features Lola’s signature skeleton hands tearing a red heart, mounted on a black ribbon.  My hair is a new release from Analog Dog.  I mentioned yesterday that I visited the store recently and was shocked at how much new I had missed.  Yes, I bought a *lot* of hair!  This one is called Sapphire and comes with the chest attachment piece to avoid the hair/avatar body collision problem.  I love Analog Dog’s hair textures and this style is so soft, sensuous, and feminine with the heavy drape across the face.  Well, if you see anything you like here, just find the taxi below and go shop ’til you drop!

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

Sexy New Corsets from Angel Dessous; Lots of Goodies from The Dressing Room

0

Yep, Angel Dessous released the most gorgeous sculpted corsets recently.  Yep, they’re sculpted, not mesh, so for those of you still reticent to try the mesh viewer, these are for you!  Also, I’m sure there are some whose computers just can’t run the newer viewers that render mesh.  I know because my old laptop just crashes when I try to run the newer viewers.  So, as I said, everyone should be able to enjoy these beautiful corsets.  Warning!  Partial nudity!

Look at those textures!  They are so realistic.  I love the black lace insets – they’re partially transparent just like real lace so you can see the skin underneath.  The other parts are as complexly textured as brocade.  Even my beast of a computer can’t capture the sheen of the textures, you know the way gold thread shimmers in the light?  These corsets have just that much realism.  They come in several other patterns/colors, but this is one is called Asia Sign.  My hair is a newer release from Analog Dog – the Ciera style – which comes with the braid attachment for your chest.  Right – it’s not mesh, either.  Analog Dog released a few new styles yesterday, and when I ran over to check them out, I realized I hadn’t been there in ages!  Let’s just say I bought a lot of hair yesterday!  My skin is a new addition from Glam Affair purchased at the newest edition of the Dressing Room.  It’s wonderfully dark and gothy!  I’ve added some new lipstick, which is also available at the Dressing Room from Fishy Strawberry. It’s a pack of lipstick and eyeshadows in different combinations on tattoo layers.  Finally, my piercings are the new release from HoD – Haus of Darcy, the Corona Radiata Piercings – for Horror Haute.  I’m wearing only the face set, but it comes with a chest set as well.  It also comes in both male and female versions and many, many colors – from silver to black to red to purple.

For a skirt to wear with this corset, I chose Aura’s lovely Low Rise Boho skirt in Grass Light which was on sale (along with lots of other items store-wide) around St. Paddy’s Day.  The texture is amazing.  I can almost feel it’s slight roughness.  I love how the small piping on the waistband of the skirt mimicks the colors in the corset.  You could totally wear these corsets with just about anything – other lingerie, some hot leather pants, a pencil skirt, just about anything! Oh!  One last thing for real!  Do you see my bare feet?  I think I’m the only fashionista on the grid who has never bought the SLink bare feet.  No idea why; I just have never gotten around to it.  But, lookee here!  These are from YS&YS for (again) the Dressing Room!  They have a nice HUD to change the toe nail colors, the rings (on/off/metal color), and of course color matches for the YS&YS skin tones, plus an RGB script for exact matching to other skin brands.  For well under L$100, these are a total bargain!

So, to sum up – awesome corset – so run to Angel Dessous; awesome new hair – so run to Analog Dog; and lots of awesome new things at the Dressing Room – so fly, you fools! (forgive my LOTR reference lol)

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