Today is the last day of the Mystic Realms Faire so you have just enough time (I hope) to swoop over and grab this amazing and beautifully-crafted crown by Chariot which was the inspiration behind today’s outfit. There are more fab goodies to be found in sian’s stall and the fair in general is stunning, so, if you haven’t already done so and you have some free time today, I really recommend you taking this final opportunity to visit.

I’ve been playing around with PicMonkey‘s newest comic book features and I like the dramatic way this turned out – particularly the dot shading on the skin (which is a beautiful L$70 bargain by Swallow currently found at The Dressing Room Fusion.) I really enjoy working on photos like this when I get the chance but I still appreciate how beautiful the items are on their own –  scroll down past the credits if you would like to see the unedited shot.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

An English Muffin Made My Day!

Earlier today I wandered back to my computer after having been afk for quite some time to find a lovely surprise waiting for me: Queenie, the creator of English Muffin, had heard about this blog post and, as a thank you, sent me a pack of her soon-to-be-released glitter lips skins. I’m completely overwhelmed as they are BEAUTIFUL. I’m not sure I deserve such a fantastic reward for blogging about a group gift but I am very, very grateful! ❤ ❤

Here is ‘Slipper Aqua‘ in all its glory and I’ve added headshots for the other gorgeous colours at the end of the post. These skins are even better ‘in the flesh’ as there is a lovely subtle sheen on the eyelids – yummy!

Fight Club

The second rule of Fight Club is.. ;0)

I had fun putting this blog post together, having got the inspiration from CoLLision’s Taste of SL hunt prize, but the second picture hasn’t come out as well as I’d have liked – I’m still getting bits of white in my hair mostly because I’m too lazy to go painstakingly pixel-by-pixel.. I’ll get the hang of it eventually, though!
