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.

Puss in Boots

Standard

As you all know i recently mentioned that Fantasy Faire was coming, and with that in mind i had to do a picture i´ve had in my head for ages.

Wearing:
Avatar: Yabusaka – Pookabi Mesh Avatar
Belt: Roadrunner’s Creations – Slingshot Holster Belt
Hat: Illusions – Cavalier Hat
Boots: lassitude & ennui – Assassin boots

Pose by Del May

You see the thing with kids is they get obsessed with things, be it characters, TV shows or games, and lately my nephew´s fascination with the Puss in Boots is at it´s height, and even knowing next week he´ll be fascinated with some other character, i had to do this picture for him (he loved it by the way), and it also comes back in full circle to the start of this post, and show how enthusiastic i am about Fantasy Faire and why.

I was always more of a sci-fi person then actual Fantasy, but SL sorta of changed it for me, and i grow more and more fond of Fantasy inworld, not only because of the excellent work i see creators put out but also because i go back to being 4 years old like my nephew, and suddenly the whole world is filled with dragons, monsters, and whatever creature my mind can come up with.

This is why i get so excited about events like Fantasy Faire, they bring a little back of the old SL slogan, Your world, Your imagination.

This post is also part of a sort of self-imposed challenge, at the start of the year i did an application so people could troll me and decide what i should blog, you can find it here and troll me, just keep in mind i am slow, and this is my first time doing.

Blog as a furry!

I’m curious which is your inner animal, and how it is styled.

I´m afraid this is as close as i´ll ever be to a furry, and of course, human or not i´m always fabulous, with the right accessories, and plenty of swag, as for my inner animal, we all know it´s the lolcat, so this gorgeous avatar was just perfect.

That is all for todays folks, don´t forget to check out my Pinterest for updates and previews on events, I´ll see you all soon, with more news and ramblings.

These are a few of my favourite things part 2

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog about some of my favourite shops over the past year, on that post you can find here: These are a few of my favourite things part 1 i talked mostly about skins, and of course a lot was left out, so today i bring you clothes and jewelry.

Now let´s talk about clothes, the advent of mesh brought a lot of changes to how we wear clothes these day, issues with standard sizes, templates and deformer where highly talked this year, most creators had to adapt and learn not also mesh but rigging, for some it was easier than for others, a huge amount of new shops came out, and a few won ground in customer preferences. I adore mesh clothes, system layers and even hybrids of both.

The amount of shops i usually wear here is quite big and it would be impossible to talk extensively about them all, so i´m gonna simply name a few of my favourites over the past year and talk maybe a bit more on some newcomers.

My favourites for blogging and regular wear this year where: MaitreyaGeometryBiloZaaraLeagueCracked MirrorErraticIngenueColdLogic, These of course are just a few of the many brands you can find in SL or my inventory, but basically the shops i end up wearing more here and/or inworld: But a few shops stand out for me this year as you can see on my next paragraph.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Belleza - Wynter Skin
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: booN
Dress: Volstead  – Empire
Jewelry: [HANDverk] – Beaded Leather Necklace and Earrings

It was pretty cool to see Glam Affair  start doing clothes and even more recently hair also, i can´t wait to see more clothes from them.

I don´t really do Roleplay in SL but Volstead  that started as an entry of clothes for a themed 20´s RP sim contest has won my heart and not only are the clothes gorgeous and some of my favourite of this year, but they work outside of RP environments.

Another two shops i´ve keep and eye on most of the year are Perception and 22769 – casual couture, Maggie started doing corsets and does some of the best shaped ones in sl due to her knowledge in corsetery in actual RL, and i´ve seen her work move well father away from simply corsets to a whole new array of products.

In the meanwhile the boys from 22769 can basically do it all it seems, they do furniture, clothes for both sexes house and decor stuff, there´s nothing they can´t do and they do it always with a smile, meaning Manu and Paco also get a prize for nicest creators in SL this year.

Wearing: 
Shape: mine 
Skin: Glam Affair- Renee (My Attic)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Truth – Sassy (My Attic)
Corset: Perception – Overbust Corset — Capricorn (Zodiac)
Necklace: Perception – Capricorn Horn Necklace (Zodiac)

Now jewelry, in RL i can´t wear earings, not for more than 15 minutes before the itching starts i don´t wear necklaces either because i don´t like things around my neck, but in sl i can and do wear all of those, this year we had a few newcomers i fell in love with like House of Rain, stores i already knew and wore like, [HANDverk]LaGyo and lassitude & ennui and the biggest surprise of them all  Maxi Gossamer who now makes some of their sl pieces available for you also in Rl, follow the link to see which models are available here.

Well that´s all for now, hopefully i´ll be back soon with another instalement of my favourite things this last year, see you all soon and have a glorious weekend

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.

Money for nothing

Standard

It´s what scammers want, and today me and many others stumbled into one, let me tell this story from the start, i woke up this morning to a wave of emails, as i got to the kitchen and my phone caught the wi-fi signal, the bips would not end, still kinda of blurry-eyed and dazed from sleep i see a flood of emails in my inbox, flickr messages, SLU pms a lot more than the usual activity.

My friends had also been on fire on Skype, and as soon as i managed to sit down and actually look at the content, my eyes rolled, apparently someone with a Deviant Art account had stolen pictures from Flickr from a lot of SL bloggers and filled a gallery with them, including two pictures of mine, the ones you can see on the pictures i´m holding, between those who had their pics stolen are: my dear friend Sonya from Astalianda,  and a lot of pictures from Strawberry Singh, Gogo from Juicy Bomb and Whiskey Monday from Whiskey Shots only to mention a few, but the worse is yet to come not only was this DA account who is also a SL resident by the name of bekidarling was passing other residents pictures as her own she was also trying to sell prints of them on Deviant Art, trying to make money of other people’s work, she was also claiming she was the creator of everything in the picture.

She also claimed the credits for every item in those pics, undermining and insulting every creator showcased in them and all the hours of hard work that go into building in SL.

When i got to work and finally could look at her page all the pictures where already taken down by her, after the massive amount of comments and links to the originals, today i learned a big lesson, don´t mess with the SL community, if we find you are stealing from any of us, be it a blogger or a creator, we will talk about it, on plurk, on forums, by email, by skype, we have each other´s backs.

A big hug and thank you for all of those who sent me a message, for all of those who spread the word, for all of those who will not let pass when someone´s hard work and time is stolen by scammers, looking for a quick buck, today i mostly wanna say thank you SL and thank you my friends.

I would also like to send a huge hug to all my blogger friends who had their work stolen, worth hours and hours spent showing the very best of SL, most as hobbie done by love to the platform and the community itself.

As i said on my last blog post i´ve been away and now on return i find myself spinning on all the new and regular events, regular like Zodiac which i blogged over the weekend and you can find at the official Hottie Cooterati Experience blog here, and new because Cinema is almost here and i will start soon showing you guys some previews, while we anxiously await the doors opening.

In the meanwhile another regular event just opened it´s doors yesterday, and as usual and from what i have seen at Seraphim and the multiple plurks by the creators, a lot of new and discounted goodies like every month, with a mix of dashing bright colours and quite unique items, sadly i´ve yet to get to the event, and i doubt i will be able in the next couple of days, with all the traffic, but i already have a pretty long mental shopping list.

So today i bring you some of last months items that should be available at the shops own stores, and i also bring you guys new shoes, or better new boots, these from one of my favourite brands, lassitude & ennui, that where specially made for this last edition of L’accessoires, that ended sadly yesterday but should be available at the shop soon.

So guys consider this my to late blog post, where i show of things from events ended and prepare for their new editions.

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.

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.

Mr. Luck

Standard

I had no idea what to call this blog post my good friend Nicole over at smileyorc sugested, Lady Luck, but since i´m for the first time blogging mens stuff, and put together an avatar to photograph with, to do another Vintage Fair preview, this time with a more sophisticated look, in one of my favourite outfits so far, this gorgeous Jackie ensemble by Purple Moon, more dashing even is the GizzA tuxedo.

I was so relieved it came with shoes and everything, since this is my first time wearing a male avatar, courtesy of Heartsick with a few modifications to adjust to my usual smaller size.

Now why did i make a male avatar, you may ask, well there are plenty of awesome male bloggers out there, i certainly am not trying to fill their shoes, but you all know i do love experimenting, with new things, and besides i sometimes do need a man to hold me in pictures.

See you all later and remember Vintage Fair opens tomorrow, and you can find a link to all the shops lm´s at the bottom of every Vintage Fair post.
