Darkness is coming

Standard

Slowly falling over us all as the A new Twisted Hunt arrives, starting tomorrow, also starting tomorrow is another hunt, The Summer Harvest Hunt, which i will bring you guys soon over at the The Ego Co. blog.

But let´s start with The Twisted Hunt, one of my favourites, always with a dark theme, always with an amazing list of creators, some more well known others sorta of new, here i bring you guys a small preview from it, this gorgeous mesh necklace by House of Rain, that you might remember from The Goth Fair, and occasional blogs, i love mesh jewelry, and i love the detail it brings, also i like it even more when it´s copy and mod, the best thing for any mesh jewelry, that ended all scaling problems of small prims, allowing you to resize it and fit it to perfection when unrigged, like this beautiful necklace, that shows, a barren tree under a jeweled moon.

I missed doing a more dark look, and for this one, i picked a random skin from Glam Affair, an older one from a long lost Dressing Room, and added something new to the look, one of Nomine´s first mesh releases, in this lovely Shapirre tone, perfect for the mood of another gorgeous Garden of Dreams scene.

The dress has two versions, one of them short and another long, with cut out sides and perfect to show of your back.

So guys, prepare yourselves for an amazing weekend and month hunting, don´t we all love a good hunt? I´ll be seeing you all soon with more hunt goodies, have a wonderful weekend.

Hidden Cove

Standard

This is where i´ve been all weekend away, hidden taking pictures for this week blog posts, and doing something else, trying out Guild Wars 2, yes i gave in after eyeing the game for ages, and seeing all the amazing pictures my friends had from beta, i bought it. I haven´t had much time to actually play yet, but it feels nice to have some distraction, instead of blogging all the time, last week was super busy with blogging, so i am cutting back a bit, since no one can keep up doing 3 blog posts a day for long, not to mention i also have a sim to terraform and decorate and an inventory to tame.

But back to the goodies i bring you today, which is a bit of a lot, a lot of events going on, expect my tldr post of the month soon by the way, too much happening all over.

So i went to the dressing room, and tried the new Cassiopeia in the Jamaica tone, i have to say this, first time i tried a Glam Affair skin i was all, hmm doesn´t suit me much , but slowly and with time it has become one of my favourite brands to blog, even if i don´t really wear it daily, i love taking pictures in them, and i love the ticker eyebrows. I also stopped at My Attic last week if you remember well, and it´s where you can find this cute bikini i´m wearing, i´m not much of a bikini person myself, but i love well placed bows, and the bigger they are the better.

Also you all know i love cats and at the Truth district there is a fundraiser going on for one sick kitty the Archie Appeal Fundraising Event, and if there is something i don´t mind spending money on is cats, just ask my spoiled little girl, so i headed there and did some shopping, the poses i used here are also available there, and are a much needed set of behind poses by Bent.

I also finally got the chance to use this amazing beach scene by Garden Of Dreams with a hammock, tent and fire, pier and even a hidden nook with a treasure chest, which i find totally adorable.

See you all soon, if i don´t get lost in Guild Wars 2 killing foes and planting crops.

Sitting duck

Just a quick blog post to remind everyone about the coldlogic sale going on that will last until the 29th, i ran there quickly because i had been dying to get this Hathaway dress when it came out, but always either forgot or didn´t have a chance to drop in, which i did today, and i also ran by over to Truth because you know a dress like this deserves some new hair.

It was also perfect for this gorgeous jewelry set by Glow available at Vintage Fair, that i wanted to blog for weeks but never got around to and i needed badly to take more pictures in the new essences sink available at this months Zodiac, honestly don´t you love those lips? I Also bring you one of the cute as usual aDORKable poses available at this edition of My Attic.

So here it is folks just a quick reminder of an awesome sale, and some bits and bobs i had with me, see you all soon and enjoy your weekend.

I was framed

Standard

I totally was i swear and i blame it all on COLLABOR88 and Vintage Fair, that made me take these pics, and filled my month with super awesome events, even if i took a week of and then was sick for a few days, i´m still catching up on blogging, slowly getting there, and seeing next months events already about to start, while i try not to panic.

Earlier i blogged some Zodiac over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, that you can see here: Dusting of Memories, i also did my about. me page thanks to Stranwberry Singh who was passing it about on plurk yesterday, so i haven´t been completely slacking off as you can see.

But now i bring you all a bit mix of Vintage Fair and COLLABOR88 like i mentioned, first my favourite hair this month is certainly this one by Elikatira, so you´ll probably see it again i´m sure, today i just really wanted to wear an hat, and some lace and frills, god only knows what i will wear later.

Let´s see how today goes and if i can have something later for you guys, if i don´t have a great weekend, cause friday finally arrived.

Golden Flames

Standard

I rarely wear golden, i also rarely play so much with shadows, but this scenery box from Winx just made the outfit come together, i also rarely do more fashion looking shots, because to be honest i´m not very good at them, but it seemed natural, and i believe in doing different things and practicing your weak spots, and mostly learning.

So today i burn, in tones of Golden and red, thanks to my visit to My Attic, and a touch from all the other ongoing events that populate SL bringing us plenty of goodies, and i will focus a bit more on My Attic today, as a blogger having the right background for pictures is sometimes everything and i love these little boxes from Winx, that seemed to fit the sort of 70´s ish look i was aiming at and fit with the event theme, which is Shaken not Sitrred if i´m not mistaken.

I do hope i got the Bond look right, thanks to the also from My Attic new hair from Ploom and  Miseria poses i used here, a new store for me but looking promising, so far so hopefully i will have some new stuff from them to show you guys.

That is all for today promise and i won´t bug you guys again, just remember to check credits for the all the usual and useful linkies, to shops and events, see you all tomorrow, and with what? More Vintage of course.

Safe from the storm

Standard

At the start of this week we had a hurricane warning, that has passed us by and quickly turned into a tropical storm, even so the weather has been humid and a hat, a lot more tropical than it´s usual for this time of year, so due to that i´ve been longing for drier weather and a cool breeze, and that was what i got for today´s pictures.

So today i bring you an awesome new release from Bilo, this long flowy mesh Abaya, released just in time for Eid, and i can´t wit for when they release the soon to come mesh hijab, perfect for this time of year, and also perfect, for this desert scene from Garden of Dreams.

This scene could not be more detailed, all furniture comes with sits and is ready to use the sclupts are simply amazing, the sandstorm particles add to the immersion perfectly, making me feel safe in this not really that small tent, from the stormy winds, the only thing i usually do with scenes is remove, the outer box to show a bit of sky and have shadows, anything else was untouched.

I also had this Pink Fuel skin, unblogged that i bought a culture shock and seemed perfect for this setting, notice again the new group gift from M.O.C.K., that i haven´t taken of all week.

For now i must take shelter, and come back to you all later with more goodies and events. Stay safe from the winds.

A room with some view

Standard

Today i bring you guys not a view but a little safe corner, for colourful girly things, trunks for clothes and hat boxes from Culprit a gorgeous print, showing some leg from Cracked Mirror, shoes that string into a delicate silky bow from lassitude & ennui. Colourful walls and big windows by Zigana, a new Wasabi Pills classic hair, delicate and detailed jewelry, but all feels is casual in this place thanks to Exposeur.

These are the lazy days of summer where Vintage Fair takes up most of my mind, be it the pretty cute small trinkets and trunks from Culprit, or the cute gogo dress by Cracked Mirror, as usual  love bangs and a haircut that allows me to show of jewelry.

I also finally received the My Second Box samples for this month, and in it came these super cute and relaxed Exposeur poses, along with a couple pose, i didn´t get to see much of this past week Fifty Linden Friday tho, but i did get these LaGyo earings and wow the reflections on them are amazing.

Last but not least these gorgeous new sandals from lassitude & ennui for L´accessoires a brand new event that started it´s first edition this month, and so far loads of goodies in terms or shoes, hats and jewelry.

Hopefully later i can bring you some more goodies a new release and a beautiful scene, in the meanwhile in case you missed it i did another blog yesterday for The Hottie Cooterati experience, with a preview for Zodiac´s edition of Virgo that starts tomorrow, and you can find it here: Inner Calm.

Sun over water

Standard

Again a mix of several events and a new release, as far as events go, first The Gallery Gift Shop, where you can find this cute long flowy mesh assembles from the boys at 22769, this time what amazed me more about this outfit available at TGGS, wasn´t the mesh, which i´ve notice has been improving in leaps and shows a certain level of maturity with working it that comes from hard work, but the texturing, i really enjoyed the texturing on these two pieces, it´s flowy and still geometric and of course i imagine this shirt was a pain to rigg like most long shirts, but it´s a very well done job.

Also from the TGGS is the makeup i´m wearing from [ Lucky #7 ] , and i wish they did more makeups like this one, it just screams colour and can basically make a whole look.

From FaMESHed, or fame shed or famished however you call it, we do love a nickname for our favourite events, is this gorgeous as usual Maxi Gossamer set, i´m not usually a fan of chains myself, but i really like these and they work with almost any outfit, again detailed mesh jewelry like these is hard to come by.

I´m also wearing a new release from booN, i had no idea they usually had the new releases for a discount sometimes, and just tought to myself, oh i haven´t checked booN in sometime i should pop there, and when i did i just fell in love with this hair, is cute and also works with a lot of looks, be it more naive or sophisticated.

For the skin i picked a slightly darker toned Al Vulo here since for some silly reason i haven´t blogged the brand in some time and i had this one just waiting to be used, after i grabbed it either at The Dressing Room or The Dressing Rom Blue some time ago.

I must admit i was in a bit of a rush to take the pics so i picked a simple background at some random location and forgot which poses i used which is inadmissible for me because i always try to credit the poses, sorry for that folks, i promise to be more careful with that next time, for today it´s all, i promise to come back tomorrow with more new releases, maybe some Vintage Fair and new events.

Under my Skin – Men´s edition

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog post called Under my Skin about the last of Nomine´s last non fantasy skins the female version, today i bring you the male version.

Although an end is always sad news, when a creator decides to spend more time doing something they enjoy better, because it´s clear they will be more motivated and inspired, also the fantasy elements where always there, always present in her skins, and a great example of this is this version of The Nephilim, that like the female one includes not only a bunch of regular options, be it facial hair or makeups, but also come with a way wider variety in makeups for men with a touch of fantasy/sci-fi. How many men can have such glamorous makeup?

I really enjoyed how the skin fitted well my shape and i i´m totally in love with the ligther skin tones and the crazier makeups, you can totally see i do enjoy fantasy items a lot and i really liked it trying out some male stuff for a change.

Also i it made me dug up again my male shape, that i modified quite a bit since then, and i also got him some hair and new eyes, which him and Ely can share, since i like boy haircuts also.

In the meanwhile we wait for more fantasy skins soon from Nomine, and some mesh, that i will bring you all soon. Don´t forget to try the demos to see how it fits you and by the way this months Men´s Department is well worth visiting.

Also if you like to see me in short haircuts i did a blog with one of my favourites for the ZombiePopcorn brand the other day, you can find here.
