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..

…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.

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.

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!

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!

bunny hood

with rl as busy as it has been lately, it seems the only times i can get a moment to myself to take pics for my bloggity here.. are on the weekends. no me gusta. i’m hoping my free time gets a bit more ample here soon, otherwise i am gonna go a li’l insane methinks.

but at least i always have retail therapy in sl to make it aaaaall better~

bff vivi && i hit up a few places over the weekend… and we both about *died* over these new mesh hoodies from aura, which are out @ the new round of fameshed. there were so many colors to pick from and each one has an adorable hood complete with long bunny ears attached.. vivienne and i could not say no. she picked a pretty purple shade, while i went with black and lime green, and both are so super cute! looove these!

06.03.2012

vivi decided to pair her hoodie with some denim shorts, from mon tissu, and a hair she also picked up at fameshed by wasabi pills. it’s simple and it’s short, but it’s *so* cute. i like the over-the-eye bangs and the short, whispy ends make this style just adorable.. and of course, my bff is just too cute for words to begin with. ❤❤

i’m wearing my version of the sweatshirt with a pair of rolled-up jeans from tres blah, some flats from ufo that i snagged @ collabor88, a *gorgeous* updo from exile that’s discounted at the dressing room blue && a *dollarbie* headband from monso that’s offered at the bombi event. there’s lots of goodies at bombi if you haven’t gone.. including an entire wall of lucky boards and gifts/cheapies dotted around in several of the designer’s stalls. plus the build is sooo cute and so are the rest of the items there. definitely worth checkin’ out, if for no other reason than to stalk those lucky boards — the version on the boards of this headband i’m wearing, i will have you!!

overalls

nnngh, monday. not feelin’ the start of the week this time around… i’m tired, i’m *cranky*, && i’m seriously wishing the weekend lasted just one more day. why is it that the weekend seems to just fly right by, but the weekdays just crrrrrawwwwllllll on forever!?

not fair. ;|

so to help make myself feel a li’l better, i decided to dress myself head-to-toe in cute. cute hair, cute clothes, cute boots, cute accessories… and y’know… it actually worked. all this cotton candy pink brightened not only my outfit, but also my mood~

having myself some sugar really helps chase away the monday blues, too! :D

these overalls i’m wearing, from monso, were the basis for this look today — they are baggy, wonderfully detailed && *mesh*.. and i had to have them. i really am a sucker for anything mesh lately, it’s spoiled me so badly with how easily mesh pieces are to wear, so when i realized that the straps wouldn’t be disappearing into my shoulders or that the flap wouldn’t move oddly with my AO on like overalls have for me in the past when just made from prims… i was sold. i’m really happy with these, i love the way they fit~

so i paired them with some *delicious* pink work boots i picked up @ gos (during the truth district sale!) && some layered shirts from whippet & buck and t.whore.. just to go all matchy matchy. some cute (and affordable ;)) accessories in the form of *free* subscribo-gift earrings from miel, a *lucky chair* prize lollipop from pink fuel that i think i’ve had forever && some *free* lucky board valentine’s day nails + rings from candy nail.. all of which were in complimentary shades of pink! glasses, messy piggy-tail buns, and a new tattoo from vestigium completed the look && i felt so goddamned adorable once i had it all on that it was hard to stay meh about monday.

perhaps that is the secret! feelin’ bleh… dress so cute that it makes it hard not to smile.

or, spend some time acting silly with a friend…

..either way!
