cheesy songs aside ;p the two lovely ladies posin’ with me today are probably my favorites. in *either* life. of course, bff vivi should be familiar to anyone that’s read my blog before.. but let me introduce you to the gorgeous, dark haired girl with us! kystria aura is one of the sweetest, most *fun* people i’ve met to date in my slife && i’m very lucky to be able to call her a friend. and luckily for me, she was rather compliant about posing for a bloggity post with the bff && me!

02.19.2012

all three of us are wearing a version each of the super cute *mesh* balloon dresses/tops from aura. they were out for just *20L* @ the love gatcha event on amira, but are still available at the mainstore for some extra gatcha funsies. and since kystria has been mia for a li’l while in world, having an extra one of these dresses in my inventory was a nice way to introduce her to how mesh works, how it fits && how it moves.

and, it’s a testament to how versatile fashion can be — all three of us styled this top *completely* different without even trying. one as a sexy short dress, one more casual over jeans && one a li’l edgier with ripped up fishnets and boots! \o/

02.19.2012

thank you, kystria, for posing with us! it was lotsa fun~ ❤❤ i am sure this won’t be the last time you guys will be seeing her here on my blog either, no worries. 😉

i’ve decided that in order to keep my sanity, ’cause i’ve been reeeeeally busy irl lately.. instead of trying to blog everyday (which never happens anyway), i’m reducing my posts to 2-3 a week. still enough to *quell* the need to blog, but not so many that i drive myself fuckin’ crazy trying to juggle everything else on top of taking a few hours out to photograph && blog.

sound good? i hope so~!

but now, onto the post!

the zombie popcorn hunt started up again over the weekend && is a hunt i so look forward to. lots of horror, lots of zombies, lots of blood && gore.. but balanced with nice, non-zombiefied separates and accessories, all of which are *free*! \o/

so i’ve put together three looks for today, all usin’ goodies from the hunt, and will mark off the items i’m wearing that are hunt prizes.. as usual. if you need a list of stores, item previews && hints, you can find that here aaaaaand good luck hunting!

coco

i’m probably the last person on the grid to take advantage of it, but if you haven’t heard… there’s a *huge* sale going on @ coco right now. this makes my inner fashionista squeak with glee! lots of well-made goodies with hefty discounts is, like, right up my alley. but instead of taking the high fashion route with coco’s clothing && accessories…

8.21.2011

…i decided to punk ’em up out li’l bit. :3

the fully sculpted vest, studded belt && insanely awesome over-knee boots are all from coco — and luckily for me, are things i’ve had my eye on for a long time now. the sale was just an extra excuse to purchase. \o/ and the way i’ve styled the pieces here is just a testament to how versatile clothes && accessories can be. suuuure, coco’s entire collection looks straight off the runway or right out of the hautest (yeah, i just made up a word) of haute couture, but. you can totally dress it down as well. which is yay imho!

8.21.2011

since it’s bubblegum weekend, i decided to wear a hair i picked up from FLF a little while ago. i am loving the new colors from lamb, but this one (called my little pony omgaaahh!) is probably my favorite out of the bunch. super bright pink, a nice vibrant purple, and even a li’l white there in the mix makes for insanely awesome hair. i can’t seem to resist the pink and purple hair anymore, it’s slowly making my folder of hair double in size. but oddly enough, i am totally okay with this~ ;p

and this tank, from candydoll, is out for lazy sunday this week.. along with a second tank in white with another design across the chest. i *love*… lovelovelovelove these tanks (same tank that i blogged here, in fact!), the fit is nice && just low cut enough to be sexy without being.. overly so. 😉 it looks great under a vest, ooooobviously, but would be just as cute on it’s own.. or under a hoodie… or with a sweater over top.. or.. /me rambles on && on

to the cloudy town of hellview: population 96

yesterday was a sad, sad day for bff vivi && me. being two jackasses ourselves, it came as a pretty big shock when we heard about ryan dunn. so sad… and so unfortunate… and he was so very young.

so while my look for today technically doesn’t have much to do with jackass, or ryan, or bam or j.knoxville… or … anything even remotely related to them, you can at least rock out with me in memory of random hero.

to the lovely content creators out there :: someone really ought to make a t-shirt with the jackass logo on it. i’ll gladly purchase && rock it in a blog post.

but, anyway.. onto the look…

6.21.2011

the hooded sweatshirt i’m wearing is from grixdale && just as a head’s up, there is a super cute white version of this same hoodie out for *freeeee* right now to celebrate sl’s birthday. go snag it while you can, ’cause i’ve no idea how long it’ll be out for free~ and for a hoodie as nice as this one, having one for free is quite a generous gift. the prim && texturing makes this sweater practically seamless and is soooo nice and comfy.

i like the whole… long sleeved top with short shorts (or mini skirts!), so i plopped on a *group gift* pair of shorts from insanya. while the group isn’t free to join, it’ll only cost you 113L to sign up.. and once you do, there is a plethora of awesome fatpack’d gifts set out. the shorts come in a ton of colors, but there’s also some suspenders && skirts and tights as well. sooo worth the cost to get in, especially if you’re in desperate need of some versatile separates!

6.21.2011

i’ve been on a blue kick lately. my last several looks have centered all around blue bits && pieces.. and i’m not sure why. i mean, it’s not like i *dislike* blue, but it’s not my favorite color. i dunno, i’m just feelin’ the blue!

so the *new* tee from t junction fit perfectly into this look — both in style && in color. you really cannot go wrong with a nicely made t-shirt and all the ones i’ve ever worn from t junction have been just that. all of the new releases are cute (the one called schizophrenic gave me a gigglesnort too, just as an fyi), so if you’ve got a bunch of skirts && shorts from insanya.. y’know.. you’re probably gonna need a shirt or two to go with ’em. 😉

and this hair, from magika. since i returned to sl at the beginning of the month, i’ve been desperately trying to play catch up with my favorite designers. and magika has released some *amazing* long hair, though this one in particular… it’s so wispy && the ends are just a li’l uneven, making it one of the most realistic hairstyles i own. a messy, casual, ultra long pony… i wish my irl hair would grow this long and lovely.. /me grumbles angrily

i’m still a little sad today, especially since ya’ll have no idea how big of a part ryan dunn && the jackass crew played in my.. younger years. it’s probably a bit silly, but when you’re a big fan of someone (or a group of someones) you start to feel like you know ’em.. and the loss ends up hitting home for you even more. it’s a sad day for his family, for the family of the other passenger in the car… and for us fans, too. he gave us a lot of laughs && i am definitely gonna miss him. ❤

huntin’ for zombies

the zombie popcorn hunt is one of my absolute *favorites*. i missed the last installment, but bff vivi && i were able to take on number four together.

there are so many awesome things in this hunt. always are. some of my favorite shops are included && this hunt has helped me in the past, and has helped me this time around, find some new favorite places for cute shit (*coughcough* villena, i’m lookin’ at you~ *coughcough*).

she && i tried to pack on as many of the hunt gifts as we possibly could, so let us start with vivi’s half of the look for today…

6.05.2011

vivienne’s look centers around the hunt prize from paperdoll. it’s so super cute && in a nice shade of dusty lavender. i’ve been blogging paperdoll goodies since i started and i’ve *never* been disappointed with anything i’ve gotten from there — hunt gifts included! the dress is adorable && even includes the little matching belt!

the nom && necklace is the gift set out by laciecakes && is in the brightest shade of bubblegum pink i think i’ve ever seen! hunt prizes of jewelry are always appreciated, i never seem to have enough necklaces.. bracelets.. rings.. and this one in particular is cute ’cause you can munch away on it. shame it’s not made out of candy~

6.05.2011

the pretty silver ring vivi’s wearing is the prize from sigma && the piercings on her lips are from ipoke. wearing multiple attachments is so awesome because it allows you to wear some fierce nails (like the ones vivi’s sporting, from candy nail) with a separate ring, or wear two sets of piercings that would otherwise bump each other off. and vivienne is of the same opinion i am: the more holes in yo’ face, the better!

now while bff vivi is all cute && girly… i, on the other hand…

6.05.2011

…am decidedly *not*. eh heh.

that’s the fantastic thing about the zombie popcorn hunt… the prizes vary. some are adorable and sweet and workable casual clothes. and then some are blood and safety pins in your nose and decaying eyeballs. which, suffice it to say, is something i quite enjoy. ;3

my torn up top && jean shorts are hunt prizes — the top is from ancayi, while the cute shorts are from american bazaar (both of which you might remember from a post i wrote the other day?) . the shirt is *really* fun for a li’l zombie cosplay, but the jean shorts? totally wearable, especially for this time of year. and — just as a head’s up — there are several cute pairs of shorts as hunt prizes this go ’round!

even though it’s covered in bruises, gashes, obscene amounts of blood && gore, the skin i’m wearing is the hunt prize from glam affair && is actually quite pretty. i don’t usually *do* tones this pale, but exceptions can always be made for skins like this. it’s gooooooooooorgeous~ this skin has two of the perdiest, juiciest lips i’ve seen on a freebie skin. and, to my surprise, came with *two* options for brows… the lighter ones i’m wearing && there’s a darker set as well.

6.05.2011

i know it’s a li’l hard to see, ’cause i’ve got *so* much goin’ on in my look for today, but the knife strapped to my arm (y’know, cause a zombie girl’s gotta protect herself, right?) is the hunt prize from virtual insanity. it includes another goodie i’m not showing, so you’ll just have to go ‘n’ hunt it out for yourself to see~

the piercings i’m wearing are just.. amazing. i love them && they look so, so painful. they are the prize from razorblade jacket and come with a bunch of different options — including some bloody tattoo layers to make it look like the safety pins are freshly poked through. which works for what i’m going for, teehee, but the piercings look just as nice without the extra gore.

vivi && i have just about finished the hunt, but i am looking forward to number five.. ’cause… there will be a number five, right?(??!?!) hunts are amazing for more than just freebies, even if the freebies are the whole draw. you discover some new places, you get to check out some new stuffs from shops you’ve been to before, and if you do it with a friend?

6.05.2011

twisted, pink && kawaii

there always seems to be a shit ton of hunts going on in second life at any given time. and i, as a seasoned hunter ;), and appreciative of this! not only do you get some *awesome* goodies for free, but it also help broaden one’s shopping horizons. some of my current favorite shops, i discovered while doing hunts in the past! \o/

so i recruited bff vivi to help me show off a few goodies from three of the hunts going on at the moment: the twisted hunt, think pink && the kawaii hunt.

9.13.2010

all three hunts are sprinkled over our avatars in various ways. but the majority of our outfits (including our skins!) are freebie hunt prizes. there are some amazing items to be found on all three of these hunts, so let’s get started!

9.13.2010

vivienne is rockin’ quite a few gifts from the think pink hunt. her skin (that is absolutely stunning) is the prize from mynerva. it has brown brows && such a sweet face, with pretty berry-pink makeup. her top is from black & blue outfitters and she paired it with the skirt-half of the prize from paper doll, the necklace we both picked up from iced and some pink-accented piercings from ipoke.

her ballerina flats are the kawaii hunt prize from scribble and are so cute. there’s a little button detail right by the toes! the tote bag she’s wearing, filled to the brim with mushrooms (she must be hungry..) is the prize from love soul. and her tattoo sleeves are from nightshade, which was a nice surprise. i wasn’t expecting some ink from nightshade, but this tatt is adorable. cobwebs, hearts, bats && stars… all the things a girl loves. ;B

and the twisted hunt is represented by the ears vivi is wearing, from shitz n giggles. i know her hair obscures them a little bit, but they are *amazing*. lots of piercings, tons of detail.. they are so worth the frustration in finding them. i can’t give you a hint unfortunately, but if you like elf ears like vivienne && i do.. you’ll definitely want to snatch these up!

9.13.2010

i on the other hand am wearing more of the twisted hunt than the other two. the dress, that i *absolutely* adore, is the prize from sassy kitty. it comes in a bunch of layers && a non-bloody version too, but i really like the ribcage design. thankfully, the whole ‘bloody’ theme seemed to run through the twisted hunt frequently, so it was easy to match my dress with the battered boots from fatal error && the rings and nails from virtual insanity. the prize from virtual insanity is really generous too, just as a head’s up. the piercings i’m wearing were included, but there’s a backpack, earrings && necklace in the gift as well!

my skin is also from the think pink hunt, but from the starting location: candydoll. it should be no surprise that i love candydoll skins and rebeca dembo always gives out awesome, quality skins as hunt prizes. bubblegum pink lips && eyeshadow, compared with the gorgeous body candydoll skins have… love it~ plus it’s in my favorite skintone of hers too, win!

and the kawaii hunt… the leggings i’m wearing are the gift from izumiya. they come in a *fatpack* of colors, so it’s not just gray you get in the package. on tons of layers, too! which makes mixin’ && matchin’ so much easier <33

we both finished our looks with some non-hunt stuffs, including new hair from truth, a tattoo (on me!) from para designs that’s an awesome new release, and a set of nails (on vivi!) from love soul. but as you can see, most of both of our outfits are made up of hunt prizes. and there’s lots more we’re not showing you. it’s perfectly plausible to dress yourself from hair to shoes in quality freebies… if you have the patience to finish these hunts, that is. ;D

braaaaaaaaaainnss

so last night, bff vivi && i went a little zombie crazy and tackled a good portion of the zombie popcorn hunt. the list of participating stores is *massive* and *awesome*, but we didn’t get to everything. which is okay, because it’ll give us something to do for the rest of the weekend. \o/

8.22.2010

anything zombie-related is usually pretty win with me. one of my favorite movies of all time is the night of the living dead remake from the 90’s, though the original directed by george a. romero from the late 60’s is pretty sweet, too. the 1990 remake *and* the original were both filmed not far from where i live in my first life 😉 aren’t you jealous?

and so vivienne && i are feeling the whole “they’re coming to get you, barbara..” vibe and are embracing our inner-zombie.

or.. at least i am. ;/ vivi just looks cute. but we’re both covered in *freebie* prizes from the hunt!

8.22.2010

almost everything you see me wearing is a prize from the hunt! my hair (which actually comes in a two pack && includes a black version with blonde streaks) is the prize from exile. the cut is really cute and i like the sandy-blonde color, obviously.

my amusing tee is from intrigue && my comfy pj pants are part of the prize from woe. flippy floppies are courtesy of it’s cake, my tattoo is by para designs, necklace from concrete flowers, bracelet by blitzed, eyes from repulse && the fringed bag is the prize from sn@tch.

8.22.2010

vivienne is *also* dressed up almost entirely of hunt prizes. she went ginger for her look today simply because the hair, which is the prize from mina hair was so cute. the cut is adorable && the carrot color is very pretty, not too orange and not too red.

the dress she’s wearing is the prize from loulou&co with the other half of the prize from mv in the form of a second pair of bright leggings. the pair i blogged the other day are also included in the prize, you get *two* pairs of leggings!

her necklace is the hunt prize from frippery, the nails are from virtual insanity, her tattoo is by koqstar, the piercings are from ipoke && the pretty pair of purple eyes she has on are the prize from amacci.

plus! there are even some *pose* prizes. in this post.. my half of the first picture, the right half of the second picture, and the last picture of both vivienne && myself below are poses i picked up for free from adorkable, doll && mannequin. yayyy for nice, freebie poses! that include zombies!

the hunt this time around is aaaaaawesome. i mean, it was awesome before, of course, but the prizes this time are just amazing. everything i picked up was worth keeping and was *so* generous for a freebie. so if you haven’t done the hunt yet, what are you waiting for!?!?

do i have to coerce you into it? >:|

formal wear

…done up vixxie style. :’D

so today i signed on to find a lovely little surprise courtesy of colemarie soleil. ❤ some amazing dresses found their way into my inventory && were so pretty, i had to use one in my look today.

it’s rare for me to wear dresses like this, the whole floofeh skirt on a dress isn’t typically my *thing*. but when something is as well-made as this dress is && with a little bit of creativity.. even something i didn’t originaly think was very me ended up looking fan-fucking-tastic.

now the dress from soliel actually comes with a matching hat && back-bow that i opted not to wear. but the ensemble as a whole is beautiful. the way the skirt moves and the bow looks very butterlfy-like.. i just decided to accessorize the hell out of my dress and am wearing a fabulous jacket from aoharu instead of the bow piece.

with the jacket && dress, i’m wearing some *freebie* stockings from sn@tch (and the entire bargain discount/freebie basement at sn@tch is amaaaaazing, just so you know!) and some kick-ass heels i picked up from a-bomb. the shoes are color-change and are so shiny and sexy. i love them in red but the baby pink color is pretty damn cute, too~

you’ll probably notice i’ve got a little something *extra in my hair today. i snagged this ‘do from clawtooth by clawtooth && instantly fell in love. the kitten nestled in my bun blinks and mews when touched. how CUTE is that?! his given name is stormy but he looks like a francisco to me, personally. 😉

my liner/lashes are from the gacha festival and are by nushru. i know it’s kinda hard to see ;( because unfortunately my photograph ended up not as close-up as i anticipated, but! there are little prim roses lining the winged liner and is *so* so pretty.

plus while i was at the gacha festival, i ran into a lovely girl (shout out to naomi afterthought if you’re reading!!) that i had a nice, but short conversation with about my blog. ❤ that's never happened to me before, it gave me the warm ‘n fuzzies on the inside.

but back to my accessories! the earrings i’m wearing are from iced and are so big and so gorgeous. the gemstones are color-change and i liked the golden stones the best. big earrings and an up ‘do to show ’em off? looove it.

my bracelets were freebies, too! one from sn@tch that came with about a billion bangles packed onto the wrist, and the other.. a cuff that was a lucky chair prize from favole. i’m not 100% sure the sn@tch bangles are still available ;/, but i *know* the favole cuffs are. and they are so worth stalking the chair for.

i know it’s not exactly the most understated && glamorous of formal attire, but it’s definitely something i’d rock in world. it just goes to show you that you can work anything into your second life wardrobe if you want to badly enough. and i did want to wear this dress *badly*, it’s so pretty. and i may or may not have spent a good portion of my evening, standing around my house twirling in it just to watch the flexi-bits bounce. :3

not silver, not gold…

…but platinum!

the feeds have been *a buzz* about the platinum hunt that started a couple days ago. and with good reason!! the prizes are fan-fucking-tastic and worth so much more than the tiny 10L cost to pick them up.

last night bff vivi && i went through most (not all, hunting is tiring work after all..) of the stops and snagged a *ton* of awesome shit. my inventory, it is literally bursting with new shinies.

but while vivienne would be here to show off all the goodies with me, she has silly real world obligations (wtf are those?) && had to work tonight. sad face. ;( so it was all up to me to bring you two looks. and it was damn hard work!

so first… drow-vixxie:

two things different should probably jump right out at you. 1, i’m not blonde.. big shocker. O: and 2, i’m silver-skinned!

the skin is the hunt prize from mynerva and is so very pretty. the gift as a whole is generous — you get two different makeups && three versions of each makeup, eyeliner, eyes and the matching elven ears. the face on this skin… drop dead gorgeous.

and my hair, it is the prize from magika. i typically don’t *do* dark colors when it comes to hair, but it seemed fitting for this particular look. especially to match the purple in my dress, which is the hunt offering from plastik. with purple hair, i look like someone else i know (i’m lookin’ at you, nira *ahem*) but it’s such a lovely shade of purple && the decorative rhinestones… i dunno, any color out of the huge fatpack gift is a good choice. this time, i just picked purple!

you can see a close-up of my beautiful face ❤ in this skin, along with my piercings prize from ipoke. in the package not only do you get the facial piercings, but piercings for your wrists and clavicle and belly and… just.. a *ton* of piercings. awesome~

my bangles were the gift from sigma and while my candy nail nails aren’t a hunt prize, they were *very* inexpensive (33L!) and are a limited-time offering to celebrate their 3rd anniversary. there’s also two new lucky boards at candy nail, y’know.. just as a head’s up. 😉

for my second look…

8.09.2010

…i am channeling some sort of elven marilyn monroe/lady gaga hybrid. i guess. \o/

i am gonna go out on a limb && say that this blazer from atomic is by far my favorite prize from the platinum hunt. there’s a black version included in the package as well as the silver one i’m wearing. it should be no surprise that i love jackets, especially well-made jackets with lots of detail and easy-to-work-with prim attachments and this blazer… mm, is divine. i love the jeweled lapels && the cut of it and the fact that it was a two for one kinda deal makes it *that* much more awesome.

so underneath it, i decided to wear the bodysuit prize from sassy kitty. it also was a two for one, almost.. because there’s a solid silver suit included in the prize too. but! it *also* came with leggings and while i’m not wearing them, they are cute and match nicely with the top!

the shoes i’ve got on are the prize from heart & sole and made me a little giddy on the inside. they aren’t just pink, as i’m wearing them. ohhhh no. the shoe itself is color-change, the jewel is color-change, the metal bits are color-change, the toe nail polishes are color-change… for 10L, it’s like getting a gabillion shoes for an extremely piddly price. and they’re hot as hell, too!

my piercing for this look is also a hunt prize, from skream. as is my hair, from exile, that came in a huge fatpack too. and my necklace as well was the prize from ha!. the nails i’m wearing for this look, again, aren’t a hunt prize but… i love them. :3 and matched far too nicely not to wear. they are from love soul && include the pretty matching ring.

long post today, i know, but there was a lot to talk about! and it’s a shame i didn’t have vivi with me to show all the platinum goodness off. ;/ i *will* rope her into posing with me again soon…

/me grumbles about stupid work.
