Quiet as a dormouse

Standard

Indeed i am, and almost asleep has the little one in Alice in Wonderland, But this little dormouse, yes i´m quite small in general with my SL height to match my RL and i´m always sleepy due to insomnia, i´ve also been sick which is delaying my other big project. This being part one of it.

When i saw the preview on flickr of this two HANDverk sets, one with the furniture and one with the food, i knew i had to have them, first i love SL food and second i love Alice in Wonderland, so my idea was to get five different looks inspired on the five different characters in this crazy tea party.

And my first pick is was the little sleepy dormouse, for which i had to watch a crazy amount of youtube videos with adorable little dormouses snoring and being overall adorable, oh the sacrifices i will do for reasearch, to make my blog posts accurate.

So i decide i was going for cute, and basically it involved my favourite colour which is purple and a little bit of pink, with some new earmuffs, owl themed, my favourite of all themes as usual, (this little dormouse laughs in the face of danger, by sporting adorable owl earmuffs). I also added a little sparkle with my silver glitter in a tiny jar, another one of my favourites from The Arcade, these super cute and funny necklaces by PIDIDDLE, the sweater i got from Beetlebones at one of the best Hunts on the grid that came back again this year, The with Love Hunt (remind me please to finish it).

Something else that is new currently are these gorgeous Sugarskull from lassitude&ennui available only at Unhinged, a shop that just turned 7 years old and already inspired a blogger challenge about the oldest, newest and most favourite item from there, I´m gonna classify these boots as the newest i have from there, and bring out the oldest and the favourite later.

Another thing i have to mention is the pose i´m using on this first picture, It´s from aDORKable and the first one of a set of 25 poses left daily at the shop as a gift, last year i missed them all, but bougth the full pack after Xmas, and since i am horrible at reminding myself of Advent Calendars in SL, i´ll probably ended up missing a few more this year, hopefully they will be available after the season is done.

That´s all for today folks, i´ll catch all later, in the meanwhile you can see me nod off and murmur something about treacle.

ETA: I almost forgot i dressed up as a  Sky Huntress over at the Hottie Cooterati blog the other day for those who might have missed it.

Is the idea behind the  Keep Calm and Keep Shopping!  event, by following the links to their stores you will find the special events items available there, it also started today, and will run until the 28th, I will try to show you as much as possible of the event, starting today with this quirky and cute skin from AD Creations.

Remember to follow the shops sruls thru their website, to easily find the inworld shops, then you can look for the event, sign and the event item.

I thought a lot on how to blog the skin, since i don´t usually do skin previews, but after finding the perfect scenery and mixing in a few of this months COLLABOR88 goodies, i though it fitted it perfectly, so here it is folks, now remember to keep on shopping.

World Goth Fair part 1

Standard

Yes   The World Goth Fair is about to start, well we still have one more day to wait, it actually starts on the 15th and last all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day.

And i spent all weekend photographing previews of fair items, the theme of this year is Canivale and it can be easily seen thru the fair build that ranges from several booths that spread across two sims, Dark Eternity and Cursed (one a Mature and the other an Adult sim, linked here are the gatcha tents slurls), over the next two weeks i will try to bring you the old, the new and maybe something blue in between, those who know me, know goth is way far from my casual style, but this is sl and we all need to climb outside our comfort and usual zones, i do enjoy dressing up and ely is totally going goth for the rest of the month, this time for a good cause.

There will be no fixed teleport points during the fair and lm´s to every store booth will be accessible on the website with a direct SLurl there, there also a lot of gatchas, and i do love gatchas, those will be found either at the shop booth, and also at the two gatchas tents around the fair.

Today for you i bring you a couple of shops, first The Little Bat, The embrace yourself dress i´m wearing on the first pics will go 100%  to charity, There are also 3 variations of the Molly skin, that i will be wearing a lot over the next week made exclusively for the fair, and a few more items like dresses, and the pair of eyes you see me wearing also, their gatcha items are some lovely collars, you will see me wearing latter over the week. I had never heard of The Little Bat to be honest, but was amazingly surprised at the effort not only put into the fair but t the quality of the offers. Another shop i had never heard about is DemotiK and here on the 3rd pic you will see me wearing one of their charity items in my petite form, and they also have a lot more items exclusively for the Fair, one of them the shoes i am also wearing on first picture. Also added to the last picture is a freebie gift found at the Gothic Toys booth this adorable spooky shack in a jar.

Another shop i love is Pin me Down, a regular Zombie Popcorn brand, and that I have been blogging for sometime, I love their edgy and certainly different makeups, Pin me down is offering a whole new set of gorgeous makeup called Doomsday, you will see later, and oh god it´s so beautiful and it comes in so many colours, they also have some uber cute Lip markings, as seen on first pic, and a bunch of eyeliners on their gatcha machine, you will certainly see me wearing those a lot.

Last but not least the muses, the muses offers a wide selection of mesh mixed in with system layers, that will fit any avatar out the box, like the dress i´m wearing here on the second picture, and gives us an amazing selection in classic and classy goth wear,   or sexy depending on your desires, like you will see on my next posts about the fair.

To the mix i have been adding some makeups from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still more than 10 days to shop there.

Remember that still going is also the The WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here and is also a part of World Goth Day SL Celebrations.

Mesh Around, and round and round.

Standard

Mesh Around is another event starting soon, most specifically on the 1st of June until the 15th and this one is a gridwide hunt involving some of the best, new and not so new shops on the grid working with like the name says, mesh.

I´ll admit i´m already a full-time mesh snob, and you won´t see me wearing many system layers, so i can´t wait for this hunt to start.

This is also the first event organized by The Ego Co., the first of many i am sure, I joined this new event group as a blogger recently and i am surprised at the organization already, and looking forward for June. In the meanwhile even with an already extensive and high quality list of merchants the applications for the hunt where extended for an extra week, so merchants can still apply here.

And while i wait, i´m still taking pics and these are from one of my favorite shops, and one of those in the Mesh Around hunt, Geometry I am wearing in this case one of their donation items for the The Ashraya Project. And i also did a trip to Yummy for some shopping, so here it is for now, while we wait for the time to go hunting.

The Mermaids have a secret and the secret is….

Standard

Shhh.. Don´t wake up Cthulhu, and so all the mermaids tail-toe around the sleeping god as they swim around the waters of Siren´s Secret, another one of the Fantasy Faire sims this one the amazing work of  Elicio Ember also the builder of the Ruins of Nu Orne.

But the best of the sim is not only the shops, but the secrets that lie under the waters, waters filled with ancient creatures, and gods, surrounded by curious little fishes, reefs and not so curious sharks, where the mer people have their playground.

Today i wanted to experiment a few different things and not all Faire based, like this lovely skin from Glam Affair and my glitterati tail (check the warning on credits for fitting), I also had this beautiful hair from Rue i grabbed at The Crazy Hair Hunt and seemed perfect to layer on top of the Wasabi Pills Hawk2 i love. So here it is another beautiful sim and a different look, I hope no one is afraid to dip their toes, or tails in water to visit it.

Was the once mighty city of  Nu Orne, another one of the amazing sims at Fantasy Faire, this one the work of Elicio Ember, showing a  beautiful and once grand city now covered in wonderous and strange vegetation, perfect for fairies and goblins to wonder about causing mischief.

And today i picked a few lovely items to show case, a new skin from Plastik made for the Faire and RLF, their lovely new release dress from {bilo}, my favorite new boots from lassitude & ennui, and these beautiful butterfly wings from Material Squirrel, available in normal size and petite size like all their wings, i´m also wearing the necklace from Southpaw, you will find in a box of cheapies at their Faire booth.

In the meanwhile some good news just came in thru plurk from the Fantasy Faire´s account, the Faire will extend for an extra day to make up for the downtime we suffered on Thursday, so it will still be open on the 1st of May.

Another small details and events i have failed to mention during the Faire´s duration have been, the incarceration of devious individuals by the sherif  in The Jails of the Fantasy Faire, where they are only released after the bail is payed, an effort put up by The Friends Fighting Cancer team like in previous Faires, and you can also  listen to interviews and special shopping spots on Fantasy Faire Radio.
