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.

Sitting duck

Standard

Just a quick blog post to remind everyone about the coldlogic sale going on that will last until the 29th, i ran there quickly because i had been dying to get this Hathaway dress when it came out, but always either forgot or didn´t have a chance to drop in, which i did today, and i also ran by over to Truth because you know a dress like this deserves some new hair.

It was also perfect for this gorgeous jewelry set by Glow available at Vintage Fair, that i wanted to blog for weeks but never got around to and i needed badly to take more pictures in the new essences sink available at this months Zodiac, honestly don´t you love those lips? I Also bring you one of the cute as usual aDORKable poses available at this edition of My Attic.

So here it is folks just a quick reminder of an awesome sale, and some bits and bobs i had with me, see you all soon and enjoy your weekend.

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.

Neon Arcade

Standard

Vintage Fair starts on the 4th, saturday, and this is a small preview of what you can find there, well at least some of the 80´s inspired stuff.

The 80´s always make me feel like laughing and crying at the same time, i was born in 1978, so i remember most of it, even if only as a child i used to love the colours and the big hair, my aunt was 17 when the 80´s started so i lived a lot of thru her, and she was an inspiration for this post in a way, her and Pacman that where a huge part of my childhood.

Because while she looked always super cool and fashionable, listening to music and going out clubbing i was a silly awkward kid playing Pacman on my spectrum, since we never had an arcade in town. I just couldn´t get myself to sport big hair tho, it´s the part of the 80´s that makes me wan to cry.

I must admit when i saw this sweater at Vintage Fair i squeed, and laughed like crazy, because it must be one of the more 80´s sweater i ever seen, and i never tought someone could put a whole decade into one sweater, and that is what Vengeful Threads did.

Everything else was just so easy to put on and fitted it wonderfully, and it´s mostly Izzie’s, i must say i´m totally in love with the skin, i usually stick to my Mynerva and only change for blogging, but i´ve been living in this skin for a few days now and it´s growing on me, and making it hard to take off. The leggings the nails where just perfect for this outfit, and the headband and bracelets are a gift available at the Fair.

The Puckman machine from HopScotch comes with so many poses but unfortanly SL was being a pain on me yesterday and i only managed to get two pictures, one playing and another using one of oOo Studio´s amazing poses, hopefully i will get another 80´s inspired blog post before the Fair ends.

I don´t know if i´ll be able to write a blog post tomorrow, since tonite we celebrate my parent’s wedding anniversary, but i promise you guys some FaMESHed, new stuff soon.

Riding the thermals

Standard

Thermals are columns of rising air at lower altitudes, that allow gliders and also birds to soar, since Fantasy Faire ended, I´ve been dying to take more pics of my europa wings, they are gorgeous, incredibly detailed, and te fact that they are mesh makes them blend in into the avatar arms.

I debated with myself if i should add some effects to suggest the movements on them of actual flight, but i wanted the beauty of the textures to show to be honest, so i only did my usual editing, now i need to find more excuses to take pics of these wings again, since the huge amount of colour selection makes me want to blog them all really, and i am sure i will find excuses to do just that.

I also bring you today a lot of Glam Affair, the skin and the dress are both from this brand and available at COLLABOR88 until the end of the month and it was quite refreshing to see that Glam Affair is branching out to mesh clothing, with an incredible quality i must add, and that COLLABOR88 has had some new faces in it.

As for me for now i´ll keep on riding the thermals seeing where i end up.

ETA: I was asked about this on plurk and though i might better add the info here about the wings, they come with an AO and separate animations for amazingly well done and very natural movements for flying in several directions or standing about, also each pack comes with both Male and female versions, in this case i am wearing the female version.

I´m so glad i was asked for these details, sometimes is hard to know every question or doubt people might have about an item please people, send me a comment if you have doubts or questions, or even plurk me or im me inworld, and i promise to do my best at answering them.

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.

Floating about

Standard

I know the weather is not yet warm enough to warrant swimsuits in RL, but to be honest i don´t really care, i had been thinking on taking these pics for ages, since i first saw this adorable WaterWorks floaty, I already had the log one but i certainly needed this adorable crab. And luck add it that these lovely swimsuit from Sn@tch available only at CHIC² was just my type.

apparently for some reason i´ve never been a bikini person in SL, I rather wear a swimsuit unlike in RL, and i always prefer the more vintage looking ones. I´m also wearing the cute heart-shaped, mesh sunglasses from WaterWorks, another item i´ve been wanting to blog for some time, I sometimes wish i had a lot more time, sometimes things linger in my inventory waiting for the perfect time to come out. Also sometimes i never get the time or chance to blog a store that i like, which is Sn@tch´s case.

Funny thing about the poses, and my use of poses in general, these are part of a wonderful set by Glitterati also only available at CHIC², Chic Management´s second anniversary event, the set is called Dance off, and i always end up experimenting with poses using them for things that might not make much sense on paper, but totally do in images.

For those who already have a summer weather, enjoy it in RL, the rest of use will be enjoying the virtual one.
