Beauty, Beware – LOTD #263

Her glacial blue eyes seemed to bore into his soul.

“Would you like a drink?” she asked, gesturing towards the cups on the table.

He swallowed audibly. “Thank you, milady,” he said.

Her smile did not reach her eyes.

After finally finding time to do some unpacking and organizing, I came across this fantastic gown from Purple Moon, which I picked up at the last round of Enchantment (I think).

I’ve been a fan of Purple Moon forever, and it is a fabulous.  Poulet is extremely generous with her group gifts and it’s well worth the group slot. 😀

I’m sporting my new Tuli skin, which I bought at this year’s Skin Fair.  I love all the brow options (which I didn’t have with my previous skin), and it came with appliers included (a huge savings!) and tons of makeup layers.

The jewelry is from Glitzz, which is fast becoming one of my go-to stores when it comes to costuming.  She has a ton of fabulous lingerie and lots of other items – jewelry, headpieces, and more. 🙂

Amacci is a new-to-me hair store, but I love this elegant updo.  I’m always looking for great hair, so I will definitely be checking out their other designs.

The cups and table in the photo are from Black Tulip, and available at this round of Genre.  This month’s theme is ‘medieval’ and I think I bought out the round!

My Ithaca – LOTD #262

My Ithaca

She leaned on him lightly, testing his strength.

Feeling his warmth, his reassuring presence, the comforting beat of his heart, she relaxed, melting into him.

Today’s LOTD post is brought to you by the Pose Fair 2016. 😀

I was lucky enough to get early access to the Pose Fair and one of the things I snagged was this gorgeous couples pose from Glamrus Poses.

I don’t often get a chance to pose with my lovely husband, so I like to take advantage when an opportunity presents itself. 😀

Called ‘Never Be Alone,’ I bought it as soon as I saw it.  I love how her hand rests gently on his shoulder, and how she leans into him.

There are tons of amazing poses at Pose Fair this year, so make sure you visit before it closes.  The fair is open until March 26th at midnight, so you only have a few days left!

Poser – LOTD #261

Her eerie blue eyes followed him as he moved around the room.

It made the hair on the back of his neck stand up.  What was she up to?

Today’s LOTD post is brought to you by the Pose Fair 2016. 😀

I saw a blurb in one of my blogger groups about requesting early access as a blogger, and I thought, “Why not?”

I mean, I blog, I love poses (I own around 2000 of them at last count), and who doesn’t like early access?!

Honestly, I didn’t think that I would get it, but I did.  So I got to spend a couple of hours yesterday perusing all the stores without having to fight lag. 😛

I have many favorite pose stores and lots of them were at Pose Fair.  Several of the stores had out free or low cost gifts, which of course I snatched up.  You can never have too many poses. (Or I can’t, anyway!)

One of the pose sets that caught my eye was the new belly dance series from Black Tulip.  I love her work, and I couldn’t resist.  I know that I can use these as transitions in dances, so I get double-duty out of them.

Pose Fair 2016 opens today at 12pm SLT, so hop on over and check out all the amazing poses!  I know I will be making more than one visit. 😛

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have gotten behind on my blogging – I’ve been so busy shopping and picking up all the goodies that my inventory is overflowing!

I recently completed the Twisted Hunt.

I’d never heard of it before, and since it’s billed as ‘the hardest hunt in SL,’ I thought I’d give it a try.

It actually wasn’t as hard as I had thought, though I did not complete the endgame.

I made it to about stop #5, and then couldn’t figure out how to reach the item I needed to get the next step.

With so many other things on my plate, I decided to forgo the endgame this year.

But I did manage to pick up a ton of cool free stuff! 😀

The hunt is a $0L hunt, and this year’s theme is ‘Qi,’ with all the gifts in black and white.

When I tried on this sorceress dress from TLG, I knew immediately I wanted to use the amazing prop from Black Tulip.

I love the checkerboard floor, though I opted not to use the built-in poses.

I don’t remember exactly how much it cost, but I know it was $100L or less, because it’s currently out at Genre.

You should drop by Genre if you haven’t already – the current theme is ‘The Twilight Zone,’ and there is some simply fantastic items.

The earrings and nose ring from Arcadia and the Nevermore heels from Lassitude & Ennui completed my look.

I added a few props – the wall hanging from Anachron, the crystal ball stand, and the torches and fairie lights.

I used the AnyPose Expression HUD to give myself an ‘angry’ face – it’s first time I’ve used it for photos.

Vanity Hair was having a 50% sale and I took advantage to pick up a few vintage hairstyles, including this bob.

If you’d like to give the Twisted Hunt a try, it runs until October 19.

Good luck!
