witch

it’s getting *clooooooser*! only *two* more days until halloween.. are you excited as i am!?

the costume look i’ve got for today is another one for halloween on a budget. i already did one costume on the cheap && today, i’ve got a second one~

10.29.2012

i know it’s already made rounds on the feeds, but i could *not* resist blogging this dress from g field myself. it’s *free* and so adorable.. and perfectly halloween. and i immediately saw it as a very appropriate dress for a witch to wear.

so i added in some more free accessories.. like the orange ‘n’ black nails + bracelet combo i’m wearing here is a *group gift* for candy nail group members. you know i love my prim nails && the gifts from candy nail are always lovely, so i was excited to see these out for the taking. the set comes with a pair of earrings as well, which i’m not wearing here, but it all works well for adding in some extra halloween colors into a look.

10.29.2012

the li’l one-tooth’d pumpkin i’m hugging above, as well as the bats i had swirling all around me (which look *amazing* but are so hard to photograph! but they’re there, i promise! eh heh) are both vip group gifts from epic. if you’re in need of some more halloween goodies, the epic group is *so* worth the price of admission. jade winthorpe is always generous to her groupies && there are lots of halloween-themed gifts for group members… currently, there’s a pumpkin backpack, the pumpkin i’m hugging here, the animated bats (which you’ll just have to go and grab to see for yourself, my pics don’t really do ’em justice), a mesh dress in three different designs and a pair of faun hooves that are *all* free to group members.

the spider pendant necklace i’ve got on is a *dollarbie* from kosh.. the hat i’m wearing is part of a set that comes in several different colors that’s out @ sakide, which gives you a *lot* of bang for your buck (the set includes the hat, a dress, boots, and gloves!)… and even the pumpkin-holding poses i used here from magnifique are cute, inexpensive and include all the pumpkins you’d ever need for posing *or* rezzing around for decorations.

so now there’s no excuse! with so many freebies && cheapies on the grid for halloween, you seriously have to dress up with me! >3

schoolgirls

sometimes, halloween is about… indulgences. the holiday gives you free reign to dress up as whatever you like. a vampire, a ghost, a zombie…. anything that tickles your fancy.

so today, it’s actually my best friend who inspired these costumes. bff vivi is *all* about the anime, so when we found a few key accessories on the marketplace..

10.18.2012

…i knew i’d have to indulge her, just a li’l bit.

these mesh heads from utilizator are all kinds of awesome — i’m wearing the regular female version but vivienne is wearing the *chibi* style (and is so cute i could scream x3) — and are chalk full of options. there are several facial expressions, including different mouth and eyebrow positions, as well as different eye styles and colors… and each come in three skin tones, with matching skins and head pieces, for tons of customization.

these would be fantastic for cosplay in sl — emulating a favorite character from an anime or manga series would be a breeze with these head pieces — but they also work for making up your own types of characters like vivi && i have done.

10.18.2012

she and i decided to dress as close as we could get to *anime schoolgirls*, with her outfit coming from collabor88 by r2. when the collection rolled over at the beginning of the month && we saw these sailor suits out… vivienne and i both knew we had to do something with them for halloween. luckily for us, rei2 aya made some *fantastic* mesh pieces that were perfect for the looks we were going for and vivi looks so freakin’ cute in this outfit.

10.18.2012

mine, on the other hand, comes from monso… and i *love* it. the version i grabbed comes with a bunch of color options for every single part of the outfit — from the trim on the jacket to different styles and colors for the tie at the neck — and is wonderfully constructed. it was absolutely perfect for a schoolgirl look && i spent much longer than i’d care to admit, just pushing buttons on the HUD to see all the color combinations.

while vivi went with a lunchbox (from love soul), i decided to wear a backpack.. one i’ve had from pink fuel for a very long time now. i’m glad i had it, it really came in handy for adding just that li’l extra touch to my costume, and i mean.. it’s pink fuel. and it’s a bunny. you cannot go wrong!

i always tend to lean on the scarier side of halloween, but that doesn’t mean every costume has to be freaky ‘n’ blood-soaked. being super adorable works just as well, too!

10.18.2012

ps. these last four pics were taken in a photo booth on the love soul sim… while they turned out adorable, i’ve no idea what the text says across the top of each panel (i just kinda mashed buttons on the dialog box until the backdrop was cute enough). here’s hoping it’s appropriate!

rainy days

with the turn of the seasons, my rl weather has been cold, gloomy and soaked with rain. watching it storm outside my real windows inspired me to bring all those chilly raindrops into the virtual world with me..

09.26.2012

i *love* the rain. the best weather for getting a good night’s sleep is when it is cool && rainy… and i really love listening to raindrops fall on the roof. but having to go out in it is a whole other story…

luckily, tea time released this set of mesh trench coats which were *perfect* for creating a rainy day kind of look in-world. i love the combo of this warm brown color with accents of deep red. the subtle pattern on the cut-outs on the side add a bit of interest && all the li’l details (the metal buckles, buttons, and belt at the waist) make this a really well-made piece.

09.26.2012

wearing a hat, with this red mint mesh hair && a gorgeously patterned umbrella from the sea hole completes my rainy day attire… and with those, i added in accents of a dark teal. these colors together — deep brown, crimson, teal and khaki — all look *so* nice together (at least, imho! ;P) and really look like autumn to me. more subdued colors, in richer tones, work so well for fall.. and, as a whole, i really like the way this look turned out!

beach bodies

after seeing the pretty crossing currents sim on strawberry singh‘s post, photobombed, i knew i had to take pictures there eventually.

so when bff vivi && i decided we needed to prance around in swimsuits for a few bloggity pics, i knew exactly where to take her!

except, she and i didn’t get photobombed… i kept an eye out for that bird berry mentioned… but i didn’t see it *anywhere*. nothing out of the ordinary popped up in the background of my photos..

05.07.2012

so strange, right? where *did* that bird go?

no matter!

spring means getting beach body ready, right? and vivienne && i thought we’d get a li’l practice in, before swimsuit season *officially* gets here. there are some bathing suits out there on the grid already, which ended up being most helpful while we were putting together our summery looks~

05.07.2012

mine, for instance, is from stellar — which just released a whole new collection of bathing suits that are more on the *modest* side. i can appreciate that, considering that the vast majority of swimwear out there right now leaves very little to the imagination, and these new tankinis are so cute! plus, just because i’m a li’l more covered up, doesn’t mean i can’t be sexy.. just look at that peek of booty on those shorts! ;D

05.07.2012

vivi went with a more traditional bikini, that she picked up from a new-to-us store called the bishes inc. these ‘kinis came in a ton of color choices && are nicely made.. she and i both really liked the ties at the hips. simple, cute and inexpensive too… which is always nice, ’cause a girl could go broke buyin’ swimwear, for reals~

i’m still not sure where that bird got to, though. perhaps he didn’t like us as much as he liked berry? i’m not sure! but i was expecting to be photobombed by him && ended up not seeing him at all… very peculiar, indeed.

my (not so) peaceful morning

waking up early in the morning usually isn’t my thing. i’m more of a *night owl* myself && would much prefer to keep the sleeping schedule of a vampire rather than wake up at ungodly hours in the morning. but when i do get to sleep at a decent time and wake up bright ‘n’ early, i realize that mornings aren’t so bad after all…

04.25.2012

a nice hot shower, a cup of fresh coffee.. and a few moments to myself to enjoy the quiet really is a lovely thing. there are birds singing, waves rolling in on the beach just outside my window, && the soft glow of sunrise just barely peeking in the windows. it’s the epitome of serene.

or, well, it can be the epitome of serene… at least while sleeping beauty there stays in bed. luckily for me, lars will allow me to have a big whopping half hour to myself while he smacks the snooze button && gets in a few more winks.. so i can shower, dry my hair, and have a cup of coffee before he drags himself out of bed.

04.26.2012

but, to be fair, i *do* get some extra quiet time while he’s in the bathroom too. it’s funny how routines get started, and how they always seem to work like clockwork, because i can always get partially dressed && fiddle with my hair and makeup a li’l bit before he’s out of the shower. by the time i’m grabbing my shoes, he’s usually all squeaky clean.

and then suddenly, my peaceful morning is not quite so peaceful anymore.

04.26.2012

take this morning, for example. i’m stepping into my heels, feeling deliciously sexy in my new lingerie, and in comes lars from the bathroom…

“hey vix, lookit this! no hands!”

…how charming.

i tell him that must take *so* much talent to do… but because it is just a li’l annoying (and distracting), he finds it to be the most hilarious thing ever. i’m trying to figure out what i wanna wear for the day, and good ole lars takes it upon himself to cackle insanely && *dance around* the bedroom with his … towel.

04.26.2012

i can’t brush my hair, or even get to my vanity without him poppin’ up (no pun intended) next to me to wiggle the .. towel .. at me. i try to pretend i don’t care, that it doesn’t bother me, but he somehow knows it really does && it only fuels the fire that much more.

i mean, just *look* at him. he is obnoxiousness personified! stark naked save for that blasted simpsons towel, laughing and doing what can only be described as the worst dance in all of humanity… and he is having a blast while i just wanna put my clothes on, damnit!!

so in my infinite wisdom, i decide to think.. and think fast. what, exactly, would give me my beautifully peaceful morning back? what could i possibly do to distract lars in return, so i can finally finish getting ready? tell a white lie and say i made breakfast downstairs and when he leaves the bedroom, close && lock the door? ask him to get me another coffee refill and when he leaves the bedroom… close && lock the door? grab my own towel and whip his bare, annoying ass with it so he goes running out of the bedroom like a li’l wuss, then close && lock the door??

hmm..

04.26.2012

…or i could forget getting fully dressed, for just a while, and take him back to bed. which, to be perfectly honest, did not make my morning any more *peaceful*… but certainly more… ahem… fulfilling.

a study in narcissism

sometimes, funny things happen when you’re hanging around in world. funny things like… your best friend decides to put on a copy of your shape you gave her a while ago, only to turn herself into a twin of you. …which then inspires an *attack of the clones* kind of sci-fi photoshoot that looks like you’re posing with a dark-haired version of yourself.

04.11.2012

you never realize just how vain you really are… until you have a clone (or maybe, a fraternal twin?) && the only thing you can think of is damn.. i’m hot.

so bff vivi is here, indulging my narcissistic side, and looking insanely hot in the process. 😉

04.11.2012

she && i hit up insilico, where it’d be *so* fitting for some sort of cloning process to take place, and pranced around as our twinny selves. we tried to channel some sort of sexy clone cyborgs vibe, with lots of shiny latex from graves && mechanized eyes from negaposi.

04.11.2012

since we both are wearin’ the same shape && skin combo (which, btw, the skin is the new leah face from glam affair and this particular tone/makeup is out @ the dressing room for an *insane* discount!), we tried to work in contrasts in other ways… to make each of our looks distinctive, while still similar. so while i’m in all black, vivienne is in white. she has dark hair, while i have light. her eyes.. red, and mine blue. we sorta look like good and evil, but which one is the good one… and which one is the bad one, hm? ;p

04.11.2012

apparently we both have a li’l good and a li’l bad in us. teehee~

naomi

03.26.2012

*new* skin at candydoll!

rebeca dembo‘s latest skin, naomi, is full of pastel prettiness that i am looooving. and it seemed appropriate, somehow, to show off this face with some equally pretty-in-pastel hair colors that are also *new* at ploom — tri-colored hair, in shades of pink, blue, purple, yellow && red that are *so* lovely!

pastel ALL the things! \o/

03.26.2012
makeups from left to right ::
natural, pink, blue, cherry, black (my personal fave!), green, purple

seen above is the latte skintone in all of the makeup choices, all with dark, smokey eyes && light glossy lips. candydoll skins always have *such* pretty faces, soft and smooth and cute, and this new skin is no exception.

you also get options for breast cup size (which i *love*, being a .. smaller girl, myself), hairbase or no hairbase, and fatpacks include *11* lipstick tattoos for you to mix && match with. i adore having options like these, it not only gives you a lot of value.. but also gives you so many ways to customize your own personal look.

03.26.2012
skintones from left to right ::
latte, cream, caramel, choco

in the picture above, i’m wearing the black eyeshadow option in all skintones, but with a dark pink lip tattoo.. a combo that does not come on the base skins (the black eye makeup comes with a peachy lip on the skin itself) but is possible with the extra lip color layers. you can be as bold && dramatic as you like, or as subdued && natural as you like, and i really appreciate when options like this are included!

pretty skin, in lovely makeups, with tons of options… makes my inner skin whore do a happy dance, lemme tell ya~

vixxie vs the painting

so… as you know (or, as you should know if you read my blog! ;p).. bff vivi && i share a house on a beachy parcel of land. we’ve had it *almost* a year now, we moved there last summer, and she and i have been pretty good roommates thus far. i mean, she’s my bestie.. who would make a better roommate than her?

we share a lot of the “responsibilities” of having a house.. and that includes splitting the decorating between both of our tastes. thankfully, our preferences mesh pretty well together && we often love the same sort of decor.. so it’s usually not a problem.

or at least, it *wasn’t* a problem. until today.

03.14.2012

enter… the painting. i walk into our living room today && it’s right there, in my face. this thing is easily twice my height, takes up the *entire* back wall, and is so bright and…. odd… that i actually stood there for a moment, trying to take it all in.

03.14.2012

needless to say, my initial reaction was not great.

now, this living room (and i say this living room.. because we actually have *two* living rooms, currently) has been bright && colorful for a while now. vivienne and i are always switching things in and out (case in point, see this post where the couch is pink, not blue, and the rugs are different!) and rearranging items just to… change things up a bit.

however, the bff.. actually removed one of my paintings && moved a plant and a lamp out of the way, just to make room for this painting. this huge, blinding, strange ass painting.

but she’s my friend, so i figured i’d… try to give it a chance. and i thought since it was so colorful, i’d try to pose in front of it for some *normal* bloggity pics.. just to see if it made a decent backdrop.

03.14.2012

and, admittedly, it *did* make a nice background. lots of color, lots of shapes, && the purple in the painting brought out the purple in the mesh pants i’m wearing (that, btw, are from epic out @ fashion for life — and it’s a donation item!!). it was interesting in the background, i *liked* how it looked behind me.

so i figured, what the hey…

03.14.2012

…it can stay. i won’t return it to her, no matter how awful my first reaction to it was. she liked it, and it is half her home too, so i resigned myself to accepting the fact that the painting is staying. at least for now, or until we decide to empty the room and completely redecorate it — which happens rather often…. and can’t come again soon enough.

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. 😉

back to black in mesh

chic management’s back to black event is already underway, so i’m a li’l slow in showin’ off some of the goodies found there. but it’s for a *fabulous* cause, to raise awareness for mental health issues, and is one of those events where you really, really should go and browse the items offered && read the information out there.

02.16.2012

one of said items @ back to black is this amazing mesh dress, from onyx wear. long sweaters and sweater dresses have pretty much been a staple in my winter sl-wardrobe, as is clearly evident by many of the posts here on my blog, but this one… with the subtle tiger-face print on the front and the *fantastic* wrinkling details on the mesh make this one of the most realistic && wonderfully designed sweater dresses i now own.

02.16.2012

and since i was already wearin’ a mesh dress, i decided to go mesh all over with the rest of my outfit. the hair style i’m wearing, which is *new* from wasabi pills is mesh (and delicious, i loooove these gorgeous waves! omgah), the boots i’m wearing are mesh && from ten 10, and even my eyes are mesh.. from mayfly.

i chose some simple accessories from addiction && iced and some leggings from rezipsa loc to pull the whole look together. i kiiiinda took the whole “back to black” thing literally with my color choices, ahaha, but! it’s still an awesome event to check out if you’ve not done so yet. it’s something that hits home for a lot of us on the grid, some extra awareness can *never* be a bad thing. ❤
