Waves – LOTD #266

LOTD 266

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

It’s been a while since I did a LOTD post – which is too bad, because I’ve collected so many fantastic things since my last one!

I’m still having a lot of fun playing around with lighting and projectors in-world.  I needed a new profile pic as well, so I set to work.

The wallflowers are by ChiC Buildings and are available in three different versions at On9.  The dark version is pictured here.

The hair is the latest from Truth – the Fenella hair currently available at Uber.  It comes with or without the hat – this is the hatless version, obviously. 😛

I’m in love with this necklace from Bauhaus Movement, which I picked up at Shiny Shabby.  You can’t see the colors in this photo, but they are fabulous!

From Glitzz (quickly becoming one of my favorite stores), I added the Ophelia headband.  A versatile piece and one that will be a costuming staple, I’m sure.

Also from Glitzz is the lingerie – Becky in black.  It comes with various appliers (I always appreciate when there is a Maitreya applier so I don’t have to go hunting for my Omega relay!).

Last but not least, one of my favorite shoes from Friday – the Kendall platforms in coal.  I love the way the ribbons look on the legs.

Goodness and Light – LOTD #260

LOTD 260

Arms outstretched, she watched, a small smile playing about her lips.

Oh, sure, she looked like an angel.  I knew different.

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

I had some extra time today, so I have been going through all my goodies and trying to get organized.

A never-ending process, to be sure, given my shopping addiction. 😛

So many things I love about this picture, not the least of which is the gorgeous skin from Glam Affair.

With Skin Fair set to open in a week (on March 11th), I am excited to see what newness awaits.  Since I have become a mesh head collector, I am curious to see what appliers I will see/find that work with my mesh heads.

I had been wearing the same skin for years (literally) and found a new one I liked at last year’s Skin Fair.  This year, with more heads and options, I can’t wait to see all the gorgeousness. 🙂

The dress is from Sakide – a new-to-me designer, but I love the flowy feel of this dress.  It comes with a texture HUD, so there are lots of color options.

When I saw these foot wraps from Friday, I had to pick them up – I have the previous set she released, and I use them all the time.  I’m sure I will use these just as often!

The jewelry is from Real Evil Industries, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite jewelry designers.  I just picked up a set of rings over at the Whore Couture Fair that I was drooling over.

Decisions, Decisions – LOTD #257

LOTD 257

She always had such a hard time making up her mind. “What should we have for breakfast, Bruiser? Hmmm?”

The puppy whined in response and she nodded her head.  “Bagels it is!”

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

This LOTD is brought to you courtesy of the generous designers of Shiny Shabby (mostly). 😀

I went to Shiny Shabby to try my hand at the Glam Affair applier gacha.  I know, I know, I am supposed to be on a gacha moratorium.  But the applier was so gorgeous!

It’s an anniversary round for Shiny Shabby, so most of the designers have put out free gifts.

They include this cute hairstyle from DeLa, a new-to-me hair store, but one that I will be visiting soon. 😛

This fantastic rose skirt is from Agapee and when I opened the box from Friday, I was in love.  I don’t usually wear socks or flats, but these were just too gosh-darn adorable! Plus, they matched the skirt perfectly.

A quick search in my inventory and I found this cute top from Purple Moon, one of the gifts in their recent Cherries on Top hunt.

A much more casual look than I usually sport, but I’m diggin’ it. 😀

Going in Circles – LOTD #251

LOTD 251

She paused, sure she had misheard him.  Why did he ask her to wear a formal gown if they were going to be traipsing through a decaying concrete building?

It didn’t make any sense.

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

It’s been a while since I did a LOTD post.  I’ve been so busy taking classes and learning new things, I haven’t had much time to actually sit down and try out some of my newfound skills. 😛

When I saw that Purple Moon had a new group gift out, I headed right over.  I love their designs and this gown was no exception.

It comes with a bolero, not shown here.  I wanted to showcase this gorgeous pearl necklace from Maxi Gossamer, which I picked up at this month’s FaMESHed.

The pearls have a HUD – change the pearls to white or black, change the metal to silver or gold.  It also comes with matching earrings.

The shoes are from Friday, in a perfect shade of pink.  The hair is from a Doe gacha. (I know, I know, but it’s hair!)

The makeup is from Slack Girl – the eyeshadow I’ve had for a while, but I just picked up this new pack of lipsticks from the Bombshell event.

Now that I’ve gotten my Photoshop fix, it’s back to work!

It’s My Party – So Let’s Disco!

My Attic 2
She threw down her purse

as she heard the music start.

Time to boogie down!

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

I’ve been having a ton of fun playing around with some fabulous items from this round of My Attic.

With a theme like “It’s My Party,” I knew there would be some fun items, and I have not been disappointed. 😀

I ❤ this adorable bag from sYs – it comes in a variety of colors and is just whimsical and cute.

When I saw this outfit from Mimikri, I immediately went digging in my inventory for disco lights.

It comes in a variety of colors, but I like the look of the nude.  It’s a nice contrast to the bright colors of the disco lights.

The hair is from EMO-tions and is perfect for a night out on the town.  I love the glam updo and the pearl headband.

I’m a sucker for a great pose and this set from Ma Vie is so fun. Exactly what I needed to make my disco party even better. 😛

At My Attic, you can also some find some terrific eyes from The Stringer Mausoleum.  They were a bit hidden in the pic above, so I took a close up to show them off:

My Attic 2 CU

These are the Shyanne eyes in Moss.

You can also see the detail in the hair a bit better in this close up.

Some really fantastic items in this round of My Attic, so don’t miss it.!

It will be open until November 30.

This photo took me a while, and I’m still not happy with it.

I’ve been trying to learn to use a green screen, and I just can’t seem to get the hang of getting rid of all the little bits, especially with hair.

That said, it’s certainly not something I would have attempted even a few months ago, so I’m proud of myself for trying. 😀

When I saw these hairs by Tableau Vivant at The Arcade, I had to try my luck.

I wanted the hair you see, though not necessarily in the ‘funky’ color pack I got.

But I made it work. 😉

I found this fabulous trenchcoat dress at Fi*Friday’s this week – only $55L!

It went perfectly with these fabulous booties from Friday, out now at Collabor88.

Zibska had a sale recently, and I picked up this jewelry set.

I started looking through my poses to see what I had, and found this cute set from Nantra.

The umbrella is included, and it’s texture change, so you can make it match just about anything.

Too bad they didn’t have one that was turned inside out!

LOTD #191 – Dreamy Blues

LOTD 191 - Dreamy Blues

She didn’t want to open her eyes.

The dream had been so real.

The stars, the animals, the gorgeous dress – it was so much better than reality.

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

I probably should have just named this LOTD “I finally made it into Collabor88!” 😀

As you can see, there are a ton of cute and must-have items in this round.

It’s an anniversary round, so it’s bigger than usual, which is probably why it took me so long to get in.

Regardless, I am in love with these items.

As soon as I saw this gown from Ison on my Flickr stream, I knew I had to have it.

I went with the blue (one of my favorite colors).

The foot wraps from fri.day were another must-have – I know I will get a lot of use out of these.

When I saw these cute animals from Mish Mish, I just couldn’t resist.

I’m showing the bunny and kitten attachments here (there’s also a pig in the fatpack), and it includes rezzable versions.

So adorable!

Ditto with the sheep light and stars from Half-Deer.

I threw down the floor glitter from Keke and added the paper cranes from DDD.

Lots and lots of dreamy goodness I just couldn’t say no to. 😛

If you haven’t made it to Collabor88 yet, make sure you go before this round is over.

You won’t be disappointed!

Guerilla Burlesque Show

This last Friday I was able to make it to another Guerilla Burlesque show.

The new 7pm Friday show they have introduced will be a ‘best of’ show.

Which is fine with me, since I can’t make the Friday midnight shows. 🙂

Zahra GBFriday’s show was kicked off by Zahra, one of my favorite performers.

This number is hard to describe – you need to see it for yourself.

There were a number of set changes, ending with a rather spooky cemetery.

I love the costume changes at the end of this one.

After Zahra was a number by Cordelia.

She was a lovely fairy dancing in a field of flowers to beautiful classical music.

Another act that you need to see for yourself, so mark Fridays at 7pm on your calendars!

AubsAfter Cordelia was one of my favorite performances of the evening.

Aubreya did a lovely routine to a version of “Who Wants to Live Forever” – one of my favorite romantic ballads.

The special effects were used so effectively in this number.

Moving water, splashing waves, rain, lightning – very well done.

One of my favorite numbers so far.

Next up after Aubreya was Chewie, with a fun routine to a Pink Panther mix.

It involved a safe and lots of pink latex.

AzabellaTaking the stage after Chewie was Azabella.

This one was a bit of change – starting with Azabella in lingerie and then ending with her fully dressed.

One of those routines that makes you sit back and think.

Next up was Oodlemi Noodle, with a routine that made my brain hurt.

There were floating picture pieces in constant motion – the amount of time it must have taken to set up the routine boggles the mind.

Another must-see. 🙂

BlazeThe last act of the night was Blaze in pirate gear.

There were skulls, treasure, and, of course, booty. 😛

If you haven’t made it to a Guerilla Burlesque show yet, you’re missing out.

And now you have two opportunities – Fridays at 7pm or the regular midnight show.

Arrive early – seats go pretty quickly, but they are well worth the wait.

See you there!

LOTD #170 – Old History

LOTD 170

She stepped purposefully down the uneven stairs, her stilettos tapping against the aging stone.

He’d called her out of the blue.

She hadn’t seen him in years, long before she ended up in Rome.

What was he doing here?

I am busy working on photos and trying to sort out my insanely large ‘Open These’ folder!

That’s where I stick everything I buy from events (with sub-folders, of course), so I know (mostly) what I got from where.

But there have been so many events lately that I can’t seem to keep up. 😛

I saw a notice about a ‘new-to-me’ event called Fashiontropic, and since I don’t have nearly enough tropical stuff, I stopped by.

I’m glad I did, because I picked up this charming little dress from Guilia Design – I love the retro fabric.

While I was there, I found a lovely jewelry set by Meva – you can see the earrings and bracelets in the photo, and there is a necklace in the set as well.

So pretty!

The hair is a free gift from Elikatira at Hair Fair this year.

They’re a ‘new-to-me’ hair brand, but I love the look, and there are 3 (3!) free hairs in their gift.

I’m not usually one for accessories, but I got this bag from Zenith at The Season’s Story and it just matched so perfectly.

Speaking of accessories, I have become obsessed with rings!

I love these rings from Punci (which I think I picked up at anyBody, but I’m not sure) – I added the inset photo so you can see all the yummy details.

The lovely skin I’m sporting in these photos is from WoW Skins.

I recently joined their VIP group (while the fee was discounted!) and picked up the group gift for July – this lovely Stella skin.

I’ve been wearing my old skin for so long, it was a refreshing change!

My shoes are from Friday for Mix this month.

You get three pairs in one, so it’s a complete steal.

I love the shoes at Friday – so hot and sexy!
