Blak Opal, that wonderful old (by SL standards) store known for Victorian and pirate attire has two new releases – one a lovely gown (which I have “elved up”) and the other a sexy pirate outfit. So, let’s get started!
This is the Scandalous Pirate outfit. What makes it scandalous, you ask? Well, it doesn’t come with panties for one thing. 😀 And I guess that open jacket with no undershirt is kind of scandalous. It comes with two tattoos – one on the chest and one on the arms. I don’t normally use Viewer 2, so I couldn’t wear them both at the same time. Without the jacket, the chest tattoo pretty much covers most of your naughty bits, so it’s pretty sexy. I should have shown you that, huh? (sheep face) It comes with the sexy fishnets, a tattered wisp of a skirt, the sash, and the coat tails. The jacket/coat has lots of prim parts, like puffy sleeves, upper and lower bands, and a prim collar. The boots are not very pirate-y, I know, but I wanted to wear these gorgeous shiny red ankle boots I won in the Midnight Mania at Drakke recently. I love how the heels of Drakke’s boots are such a pretty silver metallic. My pictures don’t really do them justice. Did you notice I’m wearing two different makeups in these pics? The red-striped makeup is Violent Seduction’s Still Doll in the Healer makeup. The other is Still Doll bare with a new makeup tattoo from Nomine. Yes, Munch is back! She’s got a ton of new releases and a total rebuild of her sim/store, too! Plus, the lucky chairs are freshly loaded with items – you gotta go! I’ll try to show you more of Munch’s new stuff soon, but in the meantime, this makeup tattoo works really well with Violent Seduction’s skins. I remember posting once that Munch should really do makeup tattoos because her eye makeup and lipsticks are just divine. Well, I take no credit for her decision to do these, but I am thrilled anyway. This makeup is from the Papillon Babylon set and features very dramatic eye makeup and luscious red lips. Here, take a closer look.
Yum, no?! I’m also loving my Scribble ears which are so easy to match to any skin tone using the “show color under cursor” feature. Oh, by the way, are you looking for avatar physics presets? Well, BlakOpal has a set for free which includes one for men (hmmm, wonders what that would look like!), a bouncy preset, a soft preset, and a corseted preset. The physics feature is so much fun to watch. It really makes one’s avatar come alive in a whole new way.
As I mentioned, BlakOpal also has a new gown that doubles as a mini dress. It comes in blue, black, red, and the color I’ll show you – white.
Coraline is quite sexy with the open bodice that magically stays put without straps of any kind. 😉 It comes with the pretty prim silver belt and the gartered stockings. I’m wearing some vintage lace jewelry I picked up at League during Fifty Linden Friday – both as a necklace and as bracelets. The shoes are so darned cute – they’re from Dilly Dolls and were released at the Shoe Fair recently (while I was busy busy busy in RL and couldn’t blog them). They’re color change – the shoe, the strap, and the little ruffle on the front, independently. Endless combinations are possible. I never wear flats, but these are just lovely! Do you like my attempt at fancy photography? This was done using a background from Props n Poses (PnP), which recently gave a huge box of backgrounds and poses to group members. I also did a little GIMP magic and voila. I’m fairly pleased with the result (remember, I have no artistic talent!) Want to see more options for Coraline?
The gown features a very long train that flows behind you perfectly. The gown comes in several pieces, including leg prims, to give it that full look. So lovely! The skin is from ploom – the lovely Maia in the blush makeup, which I love so much. Here’s a closeup.
So sweet! What a completely different look, no? You can also see the pretty lace jewelry from League better here. I honestly was wondering what I’d ever wear the lace jewelry with after I’d bought it. I’m quite happy with these results. 🙂 I took a few more pics of this outfit all fancy-like, so I’ll add them to my underused Flickr page. Go see ’em here if you’re interested. Until next time…
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
