Falling Embers

Falling Embers
Just stopping by to showcase these gorgeous lashes by no.7 available at L’accessoires until December 8th.. they include a colour-change HUD with 4 metal and 8 gem colour options and I think they are absolutely stunning!

This was also another opportunity for me to buy some more of my favourite DECO hair – I love the way it works with COCO‘s doll avatar and I’m kinda pleased with the way this pic turned out in general – if you’d like to see a much bigger version just give it a click as the blog layout does tend to make things pretty small.

Best wishes and see you soon!

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!

Sons of the Silent Age

Sons of the Silent Age

The inspiration for this post came from some incredible new accessories by sian of Chariot – ‘Cyborg Fashion‘ includes 5 items in 2 colours each and is available at The Gathering Gacha Event until October 15th, all items are commons (no rares in the machine at all) and they cost just L$50 per play. The event itself is full of other equally yummy things so go take a look over the next few days, while you still can.

I’m a little slow blogging at the moment as I’m busy preparing my own little store for some upcoming hunts, please bear with me – I hope to be back up to speed soon!

In the meantime – love and hugs

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 ❤

Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold
I decided my blog needed a splash of color this week so I was thrilled when I spotted Zibska‘s new release for the new event The Instruments. ‘Kiele‘ comes in 4 colors and I debated long and hard between the blue and yellow versions because they are both my favourite colours (and the black version too, to be honest, because it looks stunning but that would have defeated my purpose of brightening up the blog!) In the end yellow won because it just made me feel the most happy!

This beautiful outfit comes in several parts – I somehow managed to knock the top orbits off and didn’t notice until after I’d taken photos and logged off.. my irritation with myself didn’t beat my laziness, however,  so I didn’t re-take the photo – I was really pleased with the way it had turned out, anyway, and I didn’t fancy my chances of getting back into the exact same position.

Putting this together also gave me an excuse to buy the booN hair I’d been eyeing for a while and I was delighted to find no.7‘s butterfly deco lashes, too. Honestly, whenever I want unusual and strikingly beautiful items, Zibska, no.7 and booN are pretty much my go-to stores; it’s rare that I don’t love one of their releases and I’m always excited to try them out.. so if you do see a lot of their items on this blog – it’s not laziness, I’m fan-girling!

Finally, the skin I’m wearing is from the wonderful Glam Affair.. it was a release for the Fifty Linden Friday’s round before last but it is still outside the store as I type this so, if you want to grab it, run! as I’ve no idea how much longer it will be there for. Appliers, if you want them, are sold separately.

I think that’s pretty much it for now – I have a few things building up that I want to show you and a bit more free time next week so hopefully you’ll see some more posts from me pretty soon.

Hope everyone’s having a good weekend and wishing you the best for the week!

This post features items from a couple of events that are about to close – this month’s round of We Love Role-Play and The Dark Style Fair.. both end on Saturday but, if you’re quick, you can still fit in a visit! The outfit I’m wearing is ‘Vionnet‘ by David Heather and is an all-in-one mesh dress with blazer combo – it also includes a HUD with 5 color options for the blazer and blazer collar if you want to mix it up a bit. I was so taken with the style and needed to put a post together to showcase it. This also gave me an opportunity to use one of Pink Fuel’s gorgeous Drow skins with their incredible shading (close-up at end of post).

Once I’d put the outfit together I wanted to find some place a little special to show it off in so I tp’d over to the LEA Welcome Area to see what installations there were. I’m so glad I did because I completely fell in love with Alpha Auer’s exhibit Transit’t Imago Anatopism which creates The Hero’s Journey in 12 stages; at each you can collect a folder which contains part of the story of Volund (a nordic elf) in addition to poses and items that will allow you to construct Volund’s avatar as you complete each part of his journey. You can read about the exhibit in more detail on the Linden Endowment for the Arts blog and, if you stop by, you can pick up a welcome folder which includes detailed but simple instructions as to how to get the most out of your visit. I think the installation only lasts for the month of May so, again, you’ll need to be quick if you haven’t visited yet but I think it’s totally worth it if you have the time!

See you next post!
