This event is a little special, first it revolves around one of my favourite things, Sci-Fi and all things Cyber, and secondly it´s new, and SL was long due a good Sci-fi themed event. So guys remember you can follow my limited covering of it on my tumbrl, where i´ll be crediting the pics i can take , whilst i do my usual pins here.

See you all again soon with more news and events.

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.

All i want for Gothmas…

Standard

It´s you, to come and join me at today´s opening of Gothmas by Gaslight.

You might remember Gothmas by Gaslight from last year but in the hunt format, this year it´s back but with something we all love a lot more, which is gatchas, i enjoy Christmas a lot but mostly in RL to be honest in SL around this time of year i tend to stay away from the holiday items, and that´s why i adore Gothmas by Gaslight, and the darker twist on the traditional things we get to see all over around this season.

I also like Gothy stuff, although i have no idea what i´m doing with it most of the time really, do enjoy it even tho i´m certainly sure, i don´t have a goth bone in me, as i see it a wonderful way to experiment with looks and get away from my comfort zone completely, and i´m lucky that my good friend Bronxie who is the most GAF (goth as f***) person i know let´s me tag along all goth events she´s involved without calling me out on my lack of gothyness .

So I hope you´re all ready for an amazing event that starts today and lasts until the 15th of January, and a cute darker twist on this holiday season. Just wait till you see my Gothmas tree guys.

Unhinged

Standard

You all know i love events, i love having all of my favourite designers in one place, like a huge Fair or Carnival, i even love more themed events, i even like more events with a common cause or purpose, be it just thru their theme, or for a specifc thing, like  charity.

But i like event better when i can help out my friends, or simply work with them, I´ve known Eku Zhong of Culprit for a few years, we met thru SLU and since the day i added her to my friends list my life got a little richer, mostly richer with laughs and wise advise, because she is the kind of person who will make you smile no matter how shitty your day is, and now i have a chance to help out a little in making Eku smile, Nephilaine Portagonist explains the whole situation here better than i ever could on this post: A love letter for Eku <3 but basically and in summary Eku needs to have surgery to the skull that protects that amazing little and quick brain of hers, and this is when friends gather to help and try to make the whole situation affordable for Eku and her partner Yure.

Most of us had no idea of how serious the situation even was to be honest, her humour and joy for life never let it show all the hardships she has to go thru on a daily basis, but now we know and Unhinged is born and it´s a month lasting event with a skull theme/inspiration, starting on November 15th through December 15th, and it´s a gatcha Fair with a lot of pretty awesome stores participating.

Now how am i helping? I did so far two poster pics, that you can see further down and am along with Sonya over at Astalianda coordinating bloggers (remember to fill in this application if you would like to join us), and also helping out with promoting in general. Another thing i´m planning is sponsoring the event myself probably with a photo contest for more info on that you can follow out Flickr Group, or just check for news on the Unhinged blog, my personal blog here or the SLU thread about it.

In the meanwhile i´ll be here helping out with anything needed, and wearing some pretty stuff from my favourite big events going on at the moment: Cinema and The Costume Ball.

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.

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.
