The Pin Critters

Standard

Note: I am no longer pinning for the Fantasy Faire Pinterest pinboards.

As you all know by now Fantasy Faire has it´s own Official Pinterest account and as you can read here on their blog I´m helping out, and tis is the huge surprise i had for you guys, and the reason you saw all these pinning critters on my flickr over the past week.

As you all may know Pinterest as become a huge part of my SL life in the last few months, and when i started using it to cover events for my personal shopping sprees, people started joining in and it sort of took a life of it´s own, I do my best to keep on top of it all, and sorry if i´m sometimes a little late but trust me if there where more hours in the day i would gladly spend them pinning.

Sothis is how Fantasy Fair Pinning will work, there are several boards on their page: One for Official announcements, one for random previews of the creators work before the Faire opens, one for each sim that will in time have available all vendor pics for that sim participants, for easy browsing and location of SLurls.

Like you all know every year a big and pretty amazing list of bloggers helps promote the event,  and their blog posts will also be featured, linking to their blogs and again not only showing the amazing items that will be available but also the imaginative combinations and ways in which they can be used in your daily SL.

Either if you´re a hardcore roleplayer or just fancy a bit of a more dramatic change.

Another board is the Faire fun where you will see not only the more humourous side of backstage pranks, but also parties, events and happenings, something that always made me smile about the Faire is te way those involved really enjoy it, and that just shows, not only on the backstage group but also on a daily basis tru the Faire´s duration.

So i leave you all with the magic creatures tat will be do the pinning of the Faire, it was fun revisiting some of my bought items from last year, and some of my favourite shops for fantasy wear, as well as dusting of my petites for some blogging, see you all soon and let Fantasy ride your thoughts for the next few weeks as we all enjoy what SL is about, Imagination.

Amblyodipsas Rosaceae

Standard

Today I have a lot of new things for you guys, events coming that i´m going to officially blog, even if i had promised myself i would cut down on official blogging, a bloggers challenge, and some more randomness.

So let´s start with the challenge shall we, sometime ago the coolest Pancake in town in her amazing Renoobed started a blogger challenge, as you know me i rarely do those, unless by accident or if i really like it, i really suck at too much writing and musing, but i had to at least give this one a try, it´s called Create a Character Challenge and you can read all about it b clicking the link.

Like i said writing is not one of my strong points at all, so the idea of creating a whole character including background for it is at best a torture, but i did try and i figured the best way to do it was heading of to Genre and see what they had new tis month, not many events cater to roleplayers or are constantly themed like this small monthly event. And when i saw this gorgeous skin from Fallen Gods and i knew i had to use it, next i still had the whole rest of the look to work on, and i reminded myself of tow things i had seen recently first the Hair from Exile i saw in this post White Tea by the lovely Sonya Marmurek, and second these petals i found in this amazing blog post Petal Explosion from Charisma Jonesford.

So i created not a character but a whole new species a mix of roses and snake who´s nature is unknown and who´s probably the reason roses have thorns, tiny as little sharp snake´s teeth, that ill surprise you with a small bite. ´m afraid this is as good as it gets as far as character backstories as i can go, i did get a new exciting look from this challenge, and went way out of my comfort zone when it comes to showing of skin, so it was certainly a time well spent and most of all my preparation for those upcoming events.

And here is the events part i promised you guys this was also my mind being constantly thinking of two events that are probably my favourites every year.

Fantasy Faire – That starts on April the 20th lasting until April the 28th, Last year i had so much fun doing this event it was crazy, I had just started blogging officially events and Fantasy Faire was one of the very first, I also had the amazing pleasure of working closely with Khyle Sion from Refined Wild and is then project for the Faire,  Paper boats in a paper sea I also see Khyle is decorating one of the sims this year and i can´t wait to see the result. By the way the Faire is still looking for bloggers and you can find the application here.

The World Goth Fair – Again another one of my favourite events happening from the 15th of May until the 30th and run by one of the best event organizers i´ve seen so far, Axi Kurmin, this year is it´s second edition and oh my have we grown so much since last year. And we can only get better and better, the amount of new shops joining the event is amazing and so is their quality, so i can´t wait for this laid back event, where i go goth for a few weeks.

And this is it my ramblings for today, just be prepared for some crazy looks around these parts as i prepare myself o dress up and go whimsical and dark. See you all laters maybe with a Pinterest update.

These are a few of my favourite things part 1

Standard

And when i say a few i mean only a few, I remember well a year ago when mesh was new, there where only a few stores selling mesh and the quality was very different then what we have today, the SL fashion industry changed and moved into the future finally, leaving a lot of people lost and confused.

Today mesh is a huge part of our SL lifes stores embraced it, some going full mesh, some going partial, some embracing it in a whole no different way recently, with the coming of mesh boobs and appliers for them so that regular system clothes could literally embrace the mesh itself.

Over the year we´ve seen new brands arriving, old ones revamping themselves and a whole lot of new things, today i was a bit bored, i´ve been busy this holiday season like you all, but today i found i had a little time to sit down and organize my inventory, as usual i was looking at events stuff, moving things into folders, opening boxes, trying out things, and i usually look a mess when doing so, i wanted to take a pic of the new Bilo skin for this months Zodiac, I had no idea what hair to wear and luckily i had stopped at My Attic and grabbed this cute Ploom updo and i realized i was not only wearing some holiday colours but i was wearing some of my favourite brands, and over this year i gained so many favourite stores i decide to do a few more pics of random stuff from random events i have laying about.

Then suddenly i find my self putting up my idea of my favourite shops from the past year, so here are a few portraits and thoughts on the shops i´ve been wearing most often and blogging about.

First i will start with skins I´m here wearing a skin from Bilo, i didn´t feature first because of my special connection with the brand (If you look at my profile it´s writen there I am a CSR for the store, I would like to say i don´t get payed for it  in any way shape or form tho, I´ve just known Chandra for sometime now, and we´ve been close friends since then, I started blogging when she started entering events and I´ve seen her shop growing slowly over time in quality and effort, I now know a lot more than i ever did before about the creating process, how much sweat and tears go into it, be it mesh or a texture) This pic was just the starting point for this post.

Another skin brand that I´ve seen grow over time in a really suprising and impressive way is Essences another shops also featured in this Edition of Zodiac, that has also been in almost every big event for this past half month, with an increasingly quality, making me slowly grow closer and closer to their skins.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Bilo – Esha (Zodiac)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Ploom – Mosh (My Attic)
Cardigan: Bilo – Munira Cardigan

Now what do i mean with growing into a skin? Let me explain it better, some skins you go hmm i like this is different, and as you wear it more and more often with time, it growns on you, it´s not that use makes you appreciate something better, just that you slowly step out of your usual everyday look and start enjoying and appreciating different facets of yourself and your own shape.

I never change my facial features, I´ve stopped tweaking my shape about two years ago when i was finally happy with the final result, and this brand skin always looked different on me and i couldn´t pin it down why, I´m talking about Glam Affair a brand that always made me go hmm, but after a year of blogging has become my second most blogged brand and one of my favourites, not just for Fantasy but regular more fashionable pics, i collect most of the brands special events skins and i´m totally in love with them all.

Another skin I´ve had a similar relationship with was Pink Fuel, again one of the best SL brands that i always tought looked slighty off on me until i started grabbing and wearing not just here but also occasionally inwrold every special event edition.

Mind you i still wear mostly my favourite skin inworld which is my Milena by Mynerva i love it´s clean no makeup look more than anything else for my daily walkbouts, but i´m starting to realize i wear it less and less as my Skin folder grows bigger and my time for walkbouts grows smaller, and now i found out, well not really found out just wore a bit more a lot other skins like Belleza who´s Wynter Skin a few weeks ago for Fifty Linden Friday had me gasping for how beautiful it is.

My knees go weak with every Fallen Gods release and my inner Fantasy geek wants to fly around SL naked wearing nothing but skin and wings. I cry a little when i see every new My Ugly Dorothy skin out there or Mother Goose´s i wish would actually fit my shape, and i feel tempted to make a new one just for their skins. And i´m slowly growing fonder of the Skinnery,  and i´m atencipaticing Nomine´s new focus only on fantasy skins. And this only to name a few shops i didn´t picture here on this post and it´s follow up one.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Essences – Caprice skin (Zodiac)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Wasabi Pills – Amelie
Dress: Geometry – Winter (Gothmas by Gaslight)

At the end of a day i realized a skin says a lot about who we are and is one of the most important pieces of an avatar, but i think i also found out my avatar wants to be a lot of different things and some might not even make much sense to me at the time, but it will at some point, when i realize i feel good enough on my own skin to change it as often as i can and feel like.

Mon Petit Amour

Standard

It´s pretty awesome when you have a new toy in Second Life, and it´s even better when you convince your partner to get one also, what totally rocks is when you can accessorize you new toy and use it to blog.

For months now I´ve been tempted to by myself a petite avatar, and for months i couldn´t rationalize the expense of one with so much blogging to do lately, but bf finally saw one inworld at a store and he immediately imed me about it saying these are those petites things you haven´t shut up about for months?

Lucky for us the petite he met was Dolly and not only she was super nice, but she was also a shopping addict like me, and soon she flooded Sha with a lot of landmarks for us to check out.

I must admit I was totally taken over by the Mynerva petite as soon as I saw it, and I knew I would not leave without it, and not to mention i totally squeeked when i realize not only Evie´s Closet was doing petite clothes, but my favorite Evie´s dress was available for my petite self, weird when you buy something repeated in different sizes, like it also happened with one of my favourite hair by Wasabi Pills.

While i had no doubts in what avatar to pick, bf took his time and ended up choosing this super super cute Faun, since it seemed closer to is avatar looks.

Later on i got Dolly and her partner Jacks to be kind enough to pose with us, so here it is a boat with a few petites.
