I have been having such a lovely time with MadPea‘s Rewind & Play collection for The Arcade. So many of these items bring back childhood memories for me and the extra little touches and features have really been making me giggle. Evey item is interactive so you truly can play with these adorable toys! It’s hard to pick favourites but the custom pictures in the ‘Wind & Watch‘ and the brilliantly rude ‘Crazy Jack‘ have made me laugh so hard!

I’m always blown away by everything MadPea produces – it’s why I jumped at the opportunity to become a dedicated blogger for them – but the quality of these items is honestly astounding – I get a such a sense of tactile-ness from them, as if I can almost really feel their textures.. I really recommend you check them out for yourselves!

Now please excuse me while I go wake up Jack again.. later!

LOTD ~ 08-19-14: One, Two, Three, Four, Five

081914LOTDI’ve had this incredibly cute hair from Pink Hustler sat in my inventory since I saw it in another blog (I wish I could remember which one so I could credit appropriately but I’m afraid it was months ago!) I was reminded of it as soon as I saw this adorable dress from BOOM at the Olive You fundraiser and couldn’t wait to put the two together. Olive You is full of brand new items from some amazing designers who are all giving 100% of the proceeds to help the owner of Olive raise some money towards court costs as her family fight to save their home, and it’s open until the end of the month.

A couple of other things I want to note – these beautiful eyes are from Langly and are only L$1 for a pack of 3 on the Marketplace, and the eye makeup by Angelica can currently only be found at The Gallery Gift Shop‘s Anniversary event which ends soon. Oh, yes, and the fish in the hair are animated (squee!)

Thank you for reading! ❤

LOTD ~ 06-19-14: Ricielli World Cup Hunt

061914LOTDI mentioned in my last post that I was considering trying to fit more in during the week and this is my road test of that idea. I love spending time writing more detailed blog entries but they take so long to do that I can realistically only manage about one a week. I took a little look back at how frequently I used to post and it made me feel somewhat nostalgic – also, sometimes I just don’t have that much to say other than ‘ohmahgawdilovethischeckitout’ and I figure that would get ridiculously boring to read over and over again!

So, I’ve decided to reintroduce some more standard, look of the day, posts that consist of a simple studio shot, a few words with any crucial information needed, and the usual list of credits (minus a few things like photo studio type stuff and windlights used). I may be playing with how I present these for a while until I settle on a look I’m happy with so please bear with me!

I’m excited with the idea of hopefully being able to blog a little more often and perhaps keep up to date with a few time-sensitive events and offers. For example, this look was inspired by a store hunt being held by  for the World Cup – there are 20 fabulous mesh items to be found inside footballs (I’m British, I refuse to call it ‘soccer’ 😛 ) dotted around the store (they’re pretty big so you don’t have to hunt too hard!) and each costs just L$15. I’m not too sure when this hunt ends but can see more details on their Facebook page here and find the SLURL in the credits.

I hope you’ll enjoy these LOTD posts – obviously they’ll contain less yabbering from now on! 😀

Loves ya! ❤

Monomyth

Monomyth 1

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!

Panda Love

Natural is a favourite store of mine. In fact, it featured in my second ever blog post! The owner, Ayuu, is so wonderful that, when I gave her a couple of my crappy pictures for the store refurbishment, insisted on sending me all of her new releases.. and they are stunning! All are likely to feature in blog posts sooner or later but I really wanted to show you this panda outfit now because it’s so damn cute.. it comes in many colours and also has a helmet and different skirt options not pictured here.

Also, if you want to pick up a special pack of new releases for just L$200 then make sure you visit the store this week for a super-special promotional offer – clothes, head accessory, pose and make-up – which would normally cost L$640. Total bargain!!

Thank you Ayuu, for being such a generous, warm-hearted and all-round lovely person ❤
