Darkness is coming

Standard

Slowly falling over us all as the A new Twisted Hunt arrives, starting tomorrow, also starting tomorrow is another hunt, The Summer Harvest Hunt, which i will bring you guys soon over at the The Ego Co. blog.

But let´s start with The Twisted Hunt, one of my favourites, always with a dark theme, always with an amazing list of creators, some more well known others sorta of new, here i bring you guys a small preview from it, this gorgeous mesh necklace by House of Rain, that you might remember from The Goth Fair, and occasional blogs, i love mesh jewelry, and i love the detail it brings, also i like it even more when it´s copy and mod, the best thing for any mesh jewelry, that ended all scaling problems of small prims, allowing you to resize it and fit it to perfection when unrigged, like this beautiful necklace, that shows, a barren tree under a jeweled moon.

I missed doing a more dark look, and for this one, i picked a random skin from Glam Affair, an older one from a long lost Dressing Room, and added something new to the look, one of Nomine´s first mesh releases, in this lovely Shapirre tone, perfect for the mood of another gorgeous Garden of Dreams scene.

The dress has two versions, one of them short and another long, with cut out sides and perfect to show of your back.

So guys, prepare yourselves for an amazing weekend and month hunting, don´t we all love a good hunt? I´ll be seeing you all soon with more hunt goodies, have a wonderful weekend.

A blogger challenge and my usual tldr blog post of the month

Standard

Well let´s start with a bloggers challenge shall we? Earlier today Alice Demonia, hair maker and plurker extraordinaire, linked this pretty cool tumblr Men Sitting in Fancy Chairs, and it is totally filled with awesome pics of models and actors just lounging about in one big chair, looking pretty amazing, so i thought, we totally need this for SLers, so here is my challenge, for bloggers and anyone else willing to try: SLers Sitting in fancy chairs, so please add your pictures to the flickr group, i´ll have my own entry for the challenge soon.

Here are the rules: A person in a chair, you don´t even have to be sitting, it doesn´t even have to be fancy, i just love the mood of those pics, and ask people to find their own mood, either for their own personality or a character. Simple rules no?

So what else has been going on? Events and more events all over SL while FaMESHed, has just started Fairy Tales in 2012, end on the 8th, the day COLLABOR88 starts and these are just the tip of the iceberg, still going on is the second edition of Fluid by  The Ego Co., and Summer by the Sea Gacha Festival, has just started over weekend, and over next weekend is also time for ZombiePopcorn, also something we´ve been waiting for a year is Hair Fair, what can i say? I´m a sucker for hairs and the Wigs for Kids is a charity i can totally stand behind.

That´s about it for the past and the next month, i was gonna post this yesterday but sleep deprivation is still taking it´s toll on me to be honest, see you all later and have a wonderful friday and weekend.

There is a show tonite

Standard

Well more exactly tomorrow even if it´s the 1st already for me, and the first only means one thing, that Fluid is back again with new things, so every two weeks we get to see some of the best pose makers, involved in a theme, this editions theme is “That’s Risque” divided in 3 sub-categories: Burlesque, S&M, and Voyeurism & Exhibitionism. and i bring you a small preview from what will be available at the event.

This lovely furniture set, that included a screen, a chair and a matching rug is from Clutter and it will be available tomorrow, today for me, at this The Ego Co. event, so here it is my friends, make sure to check the official blog for more previews here.

By the way also well worth mention is that the skin i´m wearing is a gift for group members  available at the Bilo mainstore, so pop over there and try it out if you get a chance, i´m realy surprise at such good work on a first ever made skin.

As we get closer to Friday  Fluid´s first edition is coming to an end, but the second one is about to start, and the theme this time is “That’s Risque”, and subdivided in 3 different categories: Burlesque, S&M, and Voyeurism & Exhibitionist. Here i am showing one of the items still available from the current edition, this super funny (as usual) and really well done mesh tentacles from Weather! or not?, as usual we get an awesome pose prop, but also a decoration item, all in mesh and with a very low land impact.

More new things i wanted to show of, are these gorgeous new LeLutka hair, and the in whites makeup from Pim me down i grabbed at Zombie Popcorn, I hope we get to see more whites from them.

Bikinis are optional

Standard

Yes they are and although i prefer them in RL, in SL i always go for a one piece swimsuit, to me it has a way more classic feel, and a one piece is what i´m wearing today, this one is an old model from Zaara, I´ll probably put on an actual bikini at some point during this summer, I have promised myself i would try at least one mesh bikini.

Even if the swimsuit is not a new model, the hair i´m wearing is, i absolutely love it, and i missed Maitreya hair releases, also new is my new beach bag, that inspired the whole look of the pics, and it was a group gift from 22769, I love the fact it´s funny and i´m constantly amazed, on the improvement of their mesh work, from the rolled up newspaper to the blue sandals their works gets better and better with each new release, hunt prize or group gift.

To be honest i don´t know how Manuel and Paco manage to constantly be involved in so many events, both female and male, wich is admirable, while at the same time keep up a such a warm, cheerful attitude to everything, and i advise you all to read a bit more about these two amazing creators here, on Geanna´s blog here.

I also wanted to show of some of the poses available at Fluid, I already blogged the event on Friday when it opened, It´s another  The Ego Co. organized event, and totally dedicated to poses and props with a two week rotation between new releases, and i have to tell you i hope i get time to blog as much of them as possible, because props in it are incredibly good and refreshing.

Before i go i would like to leave here a big thank you to Gogo for the link back on here blog post Sunny, I´m still very new at blogging and when i saw she had mentioned my name i felt extremely happy and at the same time a bit embarrassed, since i´m not used to this sort of attention, but i´m incredibly honoured for the attention of one of Sl´s best blogs, when it comes not only to fashion but also photography, Thank you very much Gogo.

Bookworm

Standard

I like books, well actually i love books, i remember very well my first book it was Enid´s Blyton the Five Go Off in a Caravan, and i remember my mum calling me like mad to go and eat supper, but i couldn´t put the book down, books became then a habit, a cheap one because we had access to them thru  the library that would literally come to us every week, and a little bus like van with it´s back filled top to bottom with shelfs, all filled with books, i cant still remember it´s smell to this day.

But it has nothing to do with this blog post to be honest, or sl is just one of those memories that stick in your head and never really go away.

This blog post on the other hand is about Mesh Around, and some cute book poses. As you all know Mesh Around is a Hunt with mesh only prizes and organized by The Ego Co., the amount of hunters took everyone by surprised, while the prize quality didn´t with all the all well known shops involved. But the hunt is almost ending, so hurry up folks to grab those last hard to get prizes.

A little bit country

Standard

Which is a look i rarely go for, but it was perfect to show of items for a few events going on atm, first i´ll start with the second anniversary of CHIC Management with CHIC², where you can find this amazing mesh prop and the first big one from BENT, I´ve been on the BENT group for a few times, and i quite like it the entry fee is 250L and you get sent quite a few poses, except for those that are made for events like this one, although there will probably be a shop in the future, so join up while you can, is well worth it.

Next event is Mesh Around who has become one of the most popular hunts, I´ve seen so far this year, pretty fast, not only by the excellent organization by Ego Co. but also by the quality of the merchants and hunt gifts in it. And from the hunt is where you can find this gorgeous Ingenue top i´m wearing both in this colour and green.

And the 3rd event featured in this blog post is My Attic, which is going on it´s second edition and looks pretty promising, giving us good quality items and very good prices, and where i bought this super cute .ploom hair.

Here it is a mid day quick post with a taste of country.

HUNT ALL THE MESH

Standard

Because Mesh Around is starting today at SL´s noon, and i bring you another small preview of some of the items available during at the hunt, since SL was not very kind to me yesterday, I only managed to take one picture, but it has not one but two Ely´s in it.

And so today i bring you: GeometryBilo[GoS]Trompe Loeil and [HANDverk].

For some flowy summer prettiness, two love sets, one a dress from Bilo, which you know how much i love, and the other, a set of two separates: skirt and blouse, that you can either mix and match with other Geometry separates, which i heard there will be more available pretty soon, or with casual jeans or even system layers.

And now let me talk about these pumps, I wish more shoe creators would enter hunts, not enough do to be honest, and it´s such a wonderful way to show of your designs, specially when the quality is so at a top-level like this.

I don´t think i´ve mentioned yet how much i love furniture in mesh, but i will now, first reason is more detail for less prims, both the furniture set by Trompe Loeil and this lovely clock by [HANDverk] are mesh and so easy to mod, for the picture i did some moding to them, i resized the clock to bigger and resized the table to smaller and also took out he shadow parts on the furniture.

And here is the second reason i love mesh furniture even more, resizing it will even lower it´s land impact values, making it the best option for tiny avatars and petite ones.
So remenber folks at noon the hunt starts, so make sure you are ready to run around the grid looking for meshy goodness, and in case you are wondering what else is available on the hunt rememnber to check out my fellow bloggers from The Ego Co.
