It´s tragic

Standard

A lot happens today, and you guys know i like doing a blog post every now and then, specially when there is a new event in town, Which is the case of Oneword that should be now open.

 

So every edition of this event is themed by one word, the first edition is Tragedy, and i fell in love with this new MINA hair for it.

But Oneword is not the only event starting today, FaMESHed is back with a new edition like clockwork every month, and it´s where i bought this lovely structured dress from Mutresse, with plenty of colour options, and which i tinted slightly darker for a more noir feel NS Qa pwerfwct fro the new released shoes from Hucci.

Also since it´s Carnaval time and Madi Grass and even tho i don´t personally do hunts in SL but i was over at Papermoon the last shop on the list of 104 that take part in this Spring edition of The Twisted Hunt, one of the eldest and best know hunts in SL, and i wanted a picture themed for the holiday and for that used Sohma´s pretty setup with her hunt gift.

Have fun today guys, plenty to do on the grid for those who celebrate the world wide holidays like me and get to enjoy some extra free time or a long weekend.

See you all soon with more news and events.

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.
