bundled up

i am in *love* with the newest round of collabor88 goodies…

11.09.2012

…not only is the color palette gorgeous (shades of deep orange, golden yellow && cool teal-blue), but just about everything i spied there was callin’ my name~

collabor88 is one of those events that i look most forward to every single month. the mixture of home furnishings (which *really* helps, considering i’ve a brand new home to finish decorating!), fabulous fashion, accessories and even poses is all kinds of awesome. but this round, i found *so* many things i honestly flipped out for that i couldn’t even fit everything into one look. the collections just keep getting better && better and this round was definitely no exception.

the dress i’m wearing here is *so* sexy. it’s from hucci and i absolutely love it. the turtleneck collar, the length of the skirt, the lovely suede texturing…. and the way it moves… it is just flaw free. the fit on this dress is fantastic and i adore this blue-gray color, but i also snagged it in black because it was just too *good* to pass up.

11.09.2012

glam affair also has a few new things at collabor88 this round, including both the boots(!) && the skin i’m wearing today. the seul ankle boots come in a range of really pretty jewel tone colors that almost look metallic, but my favorite was this pretty golden bronze color. it’s neutral enough to work with just about anything i could possibly want to wear ’em with, but still *unique* enough to really add a pop of color into an outfit. they are shiny and high-heeled and impeccably textured. love~

and the skin…. well, it *is* that time of year after all. being a little under the weather is not uncommon in the colder months of fall && winter, but at least you can still look adorable with your snuffly nose. this set of skins, in glam affair’s roza and ginny faces, can either look like you’ve got a bit of a cold…. or like your face is flushed from being out in some chilly wind. such a cute idea that translates really, really well if you take lots of pictures in-world like i do. having that extra flush on the cheeks and nose, when combined with a “cooler” windlight setting && maybe a scarf (like the one i’m wearing here, which is a *freebie* from mr. poet!) totally adds another level of realism to your snapshots!

cherry

i’m kind of… accidentally patriotic with my look for today. powder blue isn’t *typically* the shade one associates with the good ole red, white and blue.. but that ended up being my color scheme for the day~

11.03.2012

and it *all* started with this cherry print skirt.

i picked it up from teefy @ the new fameshed collection because… it’s cherries(!). this print is so cute and i love the way these skirts fit. high-waist skirts are always super sexy, especially when they’re nice and short like these are, but i chose to wear the skirt underneath a large ‘n’ comfy hoodie (from ispachi — this light blue color is wonderful!) for a more cute, casual look.

11.03.2012

these shoes from g field were *perfect* for this look… because while i grabbed the black pair, most of the shoe is totally customizable. the upper half, the toe, the sole && the laces are all texture change, so i was able to change my shoes to match my red && blue look. these shoes are fantastically made (as is everything from g field), and really nice for casual wear.. and the fact that i can match them to just about *anything* make these a great bargain.

the sim i photographed this look on is so cute! i spied it first on juicybomb and made a mental note to visit when i had a look appropriate enough for the sim. and i have to say, the build there is *really* creative. almost everything is animated — there’s a cute li’l fisherman sitting on a bridge over the water and a lady peeking out of the window in her home, for example — and it all looks like the hand-drawn style of art found in a children’s book. big poofy clouds, oversized butterflies.. there were even swans floating around in a pond. not only is this sim wonderful for photographs, but it’s also just so *adorable* for exploring. check it out if you’ve not, yet!

hi, have you seen my awesome chair?

11.02.2012

my chair has horns and a raven. my chair > your chair.

i have this chair because i wanted something funky to pose with for my look for today. there really was no *need* for a chair, but i found this one at handverk (because maybe.. just maybe.. i was there eying up a few more pairs of heels, y’know, to go with my sweet pink penis pumps) and i was compelled to buy it. i mean, it has horns(!) and a raven(!!).. what more needs to be said?

so to not detract from the awesomeness of this chair, i decided to dress understated and demure…….. with gray skin, purple-tipped ears, red eyes and some crazy eye makeup. ..*coughs*

anyway! my look for today is a combination of a few things i wanted to show off, so let me touch on ’em here before i get too sarcastic. these huge platform’d boots i’m wearing are from sakide and if you act *fast*, they might still be available to grab! they were a 100L special for halloween and, as i’m sure you’re aware, halloween is over… but these boots are still great for beyond just halloween. they’re textured with spider webs and such, but it’s subtle and you really have to look close to see the pattern… which means these *won’t* be sitting in the bottom of my inventory until next october. they’re thigh-high and *mesh* and i really, really liked these. go scope out sakide if you’d like them, i hope they’re still out!

11.02.2012

this gorgeous collar && earring set i’m wearing here by amorous is out @ the tomorrow today charity event. if you’d like more information on the event, please click and read through the blog posts by matchbook monday. there are lots of designers set up at the event and, in turn, lots of goodies to snag in the hopes of helping matchbook raise money. matchbook monday is one of my own personal favorites when it comes to jewelry, but not *only* because her designs are flawless. she is a really sweet person — the few times i’ve had the pleasure of talking to her, she’s been *nothing* but kind and friendly and incredibly generous — and i honestly hope this event goes well for her. plus, you’re getting some awesome items in return (if you’re a hair junkie like i am, make sure you poke your head into the truth && wasabi pills stalls!), so if you’re inclined… visit the event and browse around~

another event with new stuffs is fameshed… and the new collection is *amazing*. the first thing i had my eye on was this hairstyle i’m wearing here from exile. this updo looked, to me, almost like a messy-bun-mohawk && i seriously fell in love. the style is perfection, it is one of my absolute favorites to date from exile, and i love that it worked so well not only with the jewelry i’m wearing…

…but also with these *ears*, which are a collab between ni.ju and trap. they are pierced a thousand ways && are completely customizable — not only does each ear set come with a hud for recoloring everything (the skintone, tips, piercings.. even the highlight and shadow are color-change), but they’re *also* fully mod which allowed me to recolor a few of the piercings by themselves. they were a breeze to tint, full of such wonderful detail, and really worth picking up!

you ever get that feeling like… someone’s watching you?

10.27.2012

yeah, me neither. *shrugs* wonder where that feeling comes from anyway…

so! today, i’ve got a.. pretty lady lost in the woods kind of costume look. this gorgeous dress from sakide, which is out @ the cinema event, inspired the look i put together for today. i was thinking of a dark, windy night…. a bright, full moon overhead… and creepy, ominous surroundings with only a single handheld lantern to light the way. i think i achieved that, what say you?

10.27.2012

instead of a forest, i used one of my favorite spots for photography && headed over to innsmouth, which ended up being the *perfect* spot. the fog, the dilapidated buildings, and the fact that i was totally *alone* worked for the kind of mood i was trying to set. it looks spooky and wonderful and absolutely fitting.

it’s just a shame i was all by myself… i mean, *completely* by myself… because on a night like that, having someone else there to keep me company would’ve been a big relief.. y’know, to keep the boogeyman from coming to get me. if you even believe in that kinda stuff.

playboy

halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

so, apparently i like quoting mean girls… but! i figured it was a fitting quote, considering the costumes bff vivi && i are wearing in my post for today..

10.25.2012

i’ve done creepy, i’ve done cute, i’ve done character cosplay…. time for somethin’ simply sexy for halloween! and there is little that’s sexier than two playboy bunnies.

all we need is a nice tray of martinis to serve..

aaaaanyway! the key to these looks are these mesh bodysuits from hucci. we both picked these up @ collabor88 several rounds ago, but thankfully these sets are still available at the hucci mainstore. vivienne is wearing the entire set here — including the cuffs, collar, ears && tail — and these are *perfect* for a halloween costume all in one.

10.25.2012

i accessorized my look with an rabbit ear ‘n’ tail set i picked up from o.m.e.n. (because i was trying to better match my ears/tail to my hair color.. is that weird?), which includes several sets of these *adorable* bunny ears and tails in a bunch of color choices. these sets are so cute, as is the kitsune set i wore here, and i love that the ears come in straight-up versions as well as the one-ear-bent variation i’m wearing here~

add in some super high heels from n-core, bright red lipstick (mine from pink fuel, vivi’s from glam affair) && a cute stage set that i picked up by focus poses… and you’ve got two very sexy (just in my humble opinion ;P) playboy bunnies. now who wants a cocktail?

dark side

welcome to my dark side…

10.21.2012

…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P

there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.

the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new as a collab by nuuna’s and haus of darcy… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome — and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.

it’s available @ the fair event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).

now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…

10.21.2012

…is just one of *many* released from glam affair. this appropriately named dark side collection features some beautiful makeups on a range of skins from dark and mysterious to light and haunting. and they are absolutely gorgeous.

10.21.2012

there’s two of glam affair’s most recent faces here — both ginny and roza. and each one is stunning. i could not pick a favorite out of these, each one is uniquely different. i love the full, dark red lips on one of the super pale skins, i love the stitched mouth on the darker gray skin, i love the two with bright pink blush dusted across the cheeks and eyes…

10.21.2012

these are wonderful for halloween looks (which you already know i’m a fan of!), but could just as easily work for a fantasy avatar.. or something decidedly goth. these sorts of skins are a big part of the reason why i’m such a fan of glam affair — aida ewing does soft and pretty so well, but also indulges the opposite side of the spectrum quite often. i adore the skins.

and when these skins are paired with aydan darcy‘s wonderful piercings && nuuna nitely‘s amazing makeup… it is a trifecta of fan-fucking-tastic.

had enough halloween? not me!

10.19.2012

to be fair, i’d wander around the grid like this even when it’s not halloween… but these “costume” kind of looks are so fun for me to put together && i could not resist doing something a li’l spacey!

this look here involves a lot of good stuff, so i’ve got lots to talk about!

10.19.2012

first, the dress… it screamed *sci fi* to me. it’s new from glam affair && is out @ fameshed. i love the super structured shoulder pieces on this dress, it definitely looks to me like some sort of cybernetic uniform and it inspired my entire look for today~

next, the booooots(!). these are found @ the cinema event, by decoy. that entire event is just amazing — from the build, to the theme, to all the goodies offered there — and these boots in, appropriately enough, the sci fi section were one of my favorite grabs. i love the shape of them and the fit.. and those colored stripes towards the foot are color change in either solid or glittery choices!

and the skin… which really gives my avatar an alien sort of vibe. it’s *new* from red mint and while, technically, the one i’m wearing here is meant to be drow.. i think it really works well for a sci fi, fantasy kind of look. this silvery blue is so pretty && it comes with a ton of options for cleavage, freckles, and different lips. plus! if i weren’t wearing these awesome arm prosthetics from grollwerk, the skin even comes with pre-tinted glove layers to cover the base fingertips for wearing prim nails. *much* appreciated, because i do like my prim nails.

don’t worry — i’ll get back to blogging more “normal” things eventually. but doing halloween looks are just too much fun~ :3
