The Artist

The Artist 1

This is going to be a picture-heavy post but I couldn’t resist because the colours and surroundings were so beautiful. I finally made my way to the stunning Noble sim as featured on Cait’s blog and, I’m sure, many others. It is absolutely gorgeous and I need to go back to take many more photos! A nice touch is that if you join the group you may rez objects – a very useful thing for bloggers! The group costs L$150 to join but I think that’s a more than fair contribution to make towards such a lovely place.

Several of the items I’m wearing are from The Gallery Gift Shop‘s anniversary event and hunt.. including this fabulous hat by Aniki and Mayhem Seetan of Azoury. It is so much fun to wear and the textures capture the light beautifully.. there are two colours available (black and gray) and both are for sale at The Gallery’s event for just L$79 each.

The amazing easel set is by Pandora Popstar of LISP – it includes various poses and let’s you ‘paint’ a picture over a certain amount of time (3, 9 & 15 minute options are included as are a wearable brush and palette). It’s really cool to watch the picture develop and, once completed, it gives you the image to place onto a canvas (also included). There are several pictures built in to the set but you also have the option of adding your own.. which is what I’ve done here.

I’m going to stop chattering now and just post the rest of the pics.. full credits are at the end of the post!

Thanks for stopping by! <3

A Small Plot of Land

gallery/store/hangout/whatever .. not much to buy but plenty to explore.. come visit me! <3

I decided I really wanted a new home rather than spending my day standing in an empty platform – at the same time I thought I would bring back my gallery/shop. I didn’t want it to just be a store, though, as I don’t have much to put in it at the moment.. I’m still working on updating my old work and creating more. So I’ve made a series of little hangouts instead. Art and things will be dotted around and made available for sale as I make it.. there’s also a notice board at the main gate where you can take a look at my current events and subscribe for updates if you like and I’ll be setting the odd gift out when I get around to it. If and when I make more furniture I’ll probably add a more traditional store area but for now I think this…

Quoth the MadPea, “Please don’t eat me!”

Quoth the MadPea

MadPea has recently made a whole bunch of their older items available on the Marketplace for prices ranging from L$10L$100. They are a eclectic collection of Stuff and Things from past games and hunts created before mesh existed and you can find them all in a store named MadPea Productions’ old items. If you’ve been following MadPea for a while I’m sure many of these items will make you nostalgic.. but there is plenty to appreciate for the new player, too!

I was immediately drawn to the raven avatar as they are my very favourite bird.. and it is delightful! Included in the pack are all the usual body parts plus 2 versions of the head (with/without pea in beak) and a fab AO which has you bob and look around as you stand, hop as you walk and, of course, flap those wings as you fly. All for just L$10! Just watching it makes me smile – it’s really very well done.

I took the above photo at MadPea’s new spot in-world: The Green Mire – a dark swamp with its very own mystery. I’m still working through it (and I wouldn’t spoil it by giving out details anyway!) but you can read a little more on the back story over on the MadPea Blog. The Green Mire is also home to the MadPea’s mainstore which features their more current items. As with all of their builds, it’s a fun place to be whether you’er shopping, taking photos, practicing your detective skills or just looking for an atmospheric hangout!

Hope you’ve all been having a good week!

Caw! <3

Child of Atlantis

Child of Atlantis
And as MetaTheodora closes, a resplendent Chariot rises! The main store is currently under construction but sian has been releasing many beautiful items at events across the grid. Both the ‘Child of Atlantis‘ earrings and the ‘Rosettes of Sirius‘ are available in 5 colours at L$120 each (fatpack L$360) – exclusively discounted by 25% for this month’s round of We Love Role-Play. I’m not sure I can find the words to adequetely express how stunning and detailed this jewelry is.. it just is! sian has the kind of skill with ‘shiny things’ that makes me insanely jealous while crushing hard at the same time. sian shares some of hisher knowledge of baking “shiny metals in Blender” here for those interested – it’s also a great link to follow to see a completely awesome closeup of the jewelry.

The beautiful tattoo makeup is ‘Kai‘ by Nuuna Nitely and is currently only available at the Cosmetic Fair Beach Party (open until July 30th) – it costs just L$100 for a pack of 11 fab colours and also includes an applier for Slink Physique. As soon as I saw it I thought it would be perfect the perfect companion for sian’s jewelry (a great excuse for buying something I really wanted anyway!) – Nuuna has an incredible talent for exactly the kind of eye-catching and unusual makeup that I have a huge weakness for – her mainstore can be found here and I really recommend a visit.

My skin, complete with the very kissable stomach freckle, is ‘Dark Elf‘ by Chandra Masala of Jalwa – a name I wasn’t familiar with (I don’t get out much) but spotted at this month’s round of We Love Role-Play. I’ve just popped my head into the main store and its sister clothing shop, Bilo – I need to go back for a proper look soon; the textures in both are gorgeous! This pack includes brow and cleavage options in addition to a variety of appliers – it’s discounted exclusively to L$499 (a reduction of 30% off the usual sale price) for the duration of the event so if you’d like to grab it at this price be sure to hop on over before the end of the month!

In other news, I’m currently working on a little plot for myself and store/gallery/whatever. I’m tired of standing in an empty box so I thought I would carve out a little niche. I’ve still added a private studio for working in way up high but made an effort to actually make it feel like home for a change! The rest of it is still very much under construction with nothing yet set for sale but I’m hoping it will be more of a nice little hideaway to relax than a traditional store. It won’t be as prettyful as other places as I’m constrained by size, prim allowance and lack of landscaping talent.. but if you would like to visit any time you are more than welcome!

I’ll post some pics when I’m more organized!

Until next time – take care, lovelies <3

I’ve shown you my contribution already (tho I am adding it again at the bottom of this post, just cos :D ) but there is so very much more to see at The Gallery Gift Shop – including a beautiful new build and an awesome free store hunt! The celebrations will continue for 6 weeks with Part II kicking off on August 5th – so check back often to see what’s new! I’ll be covering some of the items over on my fashion blog soon and you can also check out the Seraphim gallery post here.

070814LOTD

A very quick LOTD because I wanted to squeeze in telling you about the amazing sale happening at MetaTheodora before I take my mini-vacation. sian is rebranding and currently everything in hisher store is priced at just L$50 or less. The sale will last only until July 11th when Chariot will take its place and some of these items may be retired. This is a fantastic opportunity to grab a few more things you’ve had your eye on for a while – like I did with this fabulous dress – or even to just discover this amazing store for the first time. Enjoy!

See you in a few days <3

LOTD ~ 07-05-14: I’m a Little Bit Country

070514LOTD

I’ve been very busy covering events with Seraphim which means my own blog has had to take a backseat for the past week – I’m also working on some items for an event (more on that soon) and am taking a few days holiday this month – but I will try to sneak a few things in here whenever I get the chance!

I have managed to update my blogroll, though, which can now be found on its own page rather than having to scroll down a long and untidy list on the sidebar. I made little icons for each blog and am pretty chuffed with how it’s ended up looking – hope you like it!

That’s the end of the update, back to the fashion! Today’s look is a simple one but I liked it so much as it is I didn’t really want to add a load to it – it’s inspired by a dress from Coquet available at Rhapsody  – a beautiful event that embraces various music genres. Rhapsody is open until July 12th and is packed full of exclusives by some truly wonderful designers – well worth a visit! The lovely skin is a free gift currently available at Essences that I just added a simple freckles layer to. I think the result is fresh and yummy!

Hopefully see you again soon! <3
