Can’t get him outta my head – news from The Secret Affair, Genre, A Clockwork Spiral!

Hi guys!

I have been hugging the sheets for the past couple of days. :( But now I am back and at least I managed to prepare two posts, even thought hey will be short ones because I have to work on a  LOT of stuff that I kept procrastinating while sick.  :) Truth and Tableau Vivant both released new hairstyles, don’t forget to check them out! :D

The corset!

The Plastik (Aikea Rieko) released this gorgeous corset at The Secret Affair. And YAY! It is an overbust corset (is that the correct term?) which spares us the eternal search for something to fit with it. :) It comes in a TON of different colours and with various options to wear it: With additional sleeves, with or without the collar, as an underbust version, a cropped version. It costs a little more than your average corset (449L) but I suppose all these options make that price okay! I really LOVE the amount of details on this: Little buttons, lots lof strings and lacings. However, and I am NOT sure if this is just a general rigging problem in SL or a problem of this specific corset: If you look closely at my pic, you can see that the lacings (strings?) get somewhat distorted and “drawn apart” depending on how you move, especially around the stomach area and the edge on my shoulder.  That is a bit strange, I had not happen that with other pieces,  but honestly it didn’t bother me enough to not like this corset a lot. :)

Lets sing a lonely song – News from May’s Soul and Tableau Vivant!

Hi peeps!

I originally wanted to post a different outfit today…BUT! I ran into these two super pretty avis, name Kynne Llewellyn (to the left) and Duchess Flux. Duchess asked me if I wanted to pose with them and I was sooooooo excited, because both Duchess and Kynne are so awesome. I love their pictures, you need to check them out (click on their names!). So I agreed, only to prove I am a total noob because I use no posestands and poor Kynne had to deal with me clumsily turning here and there. :D But the outcome was so much worth it. :P

The hair!

All of us are wearing updos by Tableau Vivant. :) The one on my own head is the newest one currently available at Collabor88 and comes with long bangs (shown), straight bangs and sidebangs. Kynne’s and Duchess’ styles are available at The Arcade. I love my new hair! It is such an elegant style and for some reason reminds me a lot of Brigitte Bardot. There aren’t many updos that go waaay up that look good on my avi, but this one does. I DO think that a wee bit of realism in form of hairclips would have been awesome, because there is just no way that loose strand on top of my head would stay there. That doesn’t take away from the coolness of this style tho. :D I do believe that M4ri1yn worked on the general headshape of his hair too? Because I noticed that I don’t seem to have any forehead issues with his styles anymore, which used to be somewhat common a while ago (hair too high, leaving a giant forehead etc.)

The dress!

All of us are wearing various variations of May’s Soul’s (May Tolsen) dress for The Secret Affair, combined with a furstole which will also be available once the event opens (also by May’s Soul). I told Duchess that I am not usually someone who wears a lot of dresses in rp and that I am getting tired of dresses over dresses for us girls, but sometimes, there are the rare finds that make me want to blog them. This is one of them, even though the actual shape of the dress isn’t even terribly complicated! I LOVE the textures, the satin ones are very realistic looking imho and the highlights are just really neatly done: Neither too weak, nor too strong. The one I am wearing is one of the ‘leather’ textures, which still look very silky and soft. :D And now…breathe in and out! The dress is only 160 Lindens per colour. The dress is available in ombre tones, leather textures and satin textures. This is a giant, superawesome steal and so worth it. 160 Lindens is incredibly generous for original mesh. I think May Tolsen may just be a new star on the horizon.

Please do check out Kynne’s Flickr and Duchess’ Blog to find out what they are wearing! :D

There’s just silence left – News from Just Design, The Plastik and more! :D

Hi guys,

WE LOVE RP started two days ago and well, this round I could barely decide what to blog first. So instead I chose to go for a certain style and tried to find items that match it. :) Uber started too and there are a ton of awesome items there! The Arcade is going on as well, good luck getting in! :P

The corset!

The corset on the picture below is a new item by Just Design (Davidefre Resident) and currently available at WE LOVE RP. This is gooooorgeous. I am so glad to find a corset that shows actual leather that wrinkles when you wear it. The textures are -awesome- and the details he added to this corsets are amazing. I LOVE that all the lacings on this corset are actual mesh and not a drawn on texture. You can tint all these parts of the corset individually with a HUD if you get the fatpack. The normal pack costs 295 Lindens and the corset comes in seven colour variations. Even the normal version comes witha  lot of options for customisation. I love the fact that the attached belt with the pouches (which is a totally cute detail, too!) can be hidden through the HUD.The corset comes in a wider version, a normal version and even a version for the Belleza Body. I wish there were more variations, but that’s a minor downside for me.

The sleeves!

The sleeves (I am not sure what else to call this item. A top maybe?) on the two pictures below are part of Aikea Rieko’s outfit for WE LOVE RP! As per usual, The Plastik’s outfit comes in a TON of different textures. I like the simple, brown one usually best. I really like the detail with all the buttons and on the sleeves, but what totally caught my eye at first was the fact that the hands are attached! And…they are pretty hands. Usually, items with attached hands have ugly, yellowish hands. I seriously never once found hands attached to tops that I liked. These ones however are pretty nice and it allows for a unique look with the sleeve ending in some sort of glove, which usually cannot be achieved otherwise. Really a fan of this! At 329 Lindens, this outfit is a real steal. It come swith pants, the top shown, boots, and a corset. Very much a fan! I oooonly wish the rather big collar wasn’t so wide.

WE <3 RP – SHOPPING GUIDE SEPTEMBER

Hi peeps,

75 creators are getting ready to set up their newest creations for you! The event will open on the 4th at 3 PM SLT and here we are already featuring the early previews. Don’t forget to check back as these are only about 30% of what’s going to be there! :) We will constantly update this site.

Oh, I won’t tell my mother – News from Remarkable Oblivion, Pixicat, Tableau Vivant and more! :D

Hey guys!

My compy is being a butt and annoyed me this whole weekend, together with my hurting brain, so this post will onyl have on pic. But I think you still can see everything that is importnat!

I am way late to the party for Enchantment, but today is your last chance to pick up some AWESOME items, both at the stores and at the place where you can get the prices. Thsi round’s theme is/was Bluebeard. To get the prices, you first have to buy an item offered by one of the participating stores (check Seraphim!) and receive one of their stampcards. The item will be marked as specifically made for the event. You attach the stampcard and then you go to each store on the list and click the stamping machine. Once you collected all stamps, you can choose a prize of your liking at the main location. I love this system so much, because it also bring traffic to the stores!

The collar!

Ohhhh my god. This collar by Remarkable Oblivion for The Arcade (starting tomorrow!!) is so, so gorgeous. It comes with maatching hat and the bracers shown in the picture (each one comes with a matching gemstone). AxsisThorn and Nimvade seriously have made an incredibly versatile and awesome item here. I can see this being worn for all kinds of mage-/sorceress-outfits as well as victorian or steampunkish characters. I love the textures on this one and especially like the detail on the feathers and the gem. The collar is a rare of the gacha and comes in three different colour versions (black, red, white). I wish it was modifyable, because the resizers (even those that let you resize all sides individually like this one) confuse the heck out of me at times. But well, I am a fan of this one. And hey, a HINT! RO lowered their gacha prices, so now it’s only 75L to play this machine. :D

The dress!

When I first saw this dress by Pixicat (Areve Resident) for Enchantment I was squeeing all over it. However, that was when I returned home from holidays and WE LOVE RP started, so I forgot that for along time for some reason. I am so happy Voshie reminded me of it. Directly went to get all my stamps and got this phenomenal dress. I loooove it. It comes as a whole fatpack, five sizes and a whole colourset to choose from. You can combien these colours on the skirt and ‘inner part’ of the dress separately. The textures on this one are SO pretty and I love the highlights! Not too much, yet still popping out enough. The real eyecatcher though clearly is the rope that goes around the waist and up to the neck. A super unique dress imho, I have not seen this style anywhere so far. Totally a must have! :)

Look into my eyes – News from Enfant Terrible, Peqe and mooooore! :D

Hi peeps!

This time I wanted to try out a royal look. The crown in the first picture inspired me to do so. Read on to see where it’s from! :D

The crown!

Well guys, this crown is purely amazing. I haven’t seen a crown as detailed as this one in a long time. Jalilah Jewell (LeEnfantTerrible Resident), the person behind Enfant Terrible, has come up with an absolutely stunning collection for the upcoming round of The Arcade and this crown is one of the rares. As always, Jalilah manages to hit the nail on the head with her choic of colours, especially the gold makes me a happy elf. The crown is tastefully styled and amazingly detailed while maintaining a realistic look. I can totally imagine this crown on top of the head of a real queen in history! I really think Jali’s tendency towards perfection shows in this item. And…you’ll not be disappointed in the rest of her gacha either. Hint:  Pretty shoes and bags! And jewelry. :D

The dress!

Well, can’t write this post without honoring Inex Hax’ dress which she made for the current round of WE LOVE RP! It is the first dress that I have seen that comes in this super royal looking design. It works by completely alpha-ing out your arms. This does mean, that if you combine this dress with any kind of stole/vest or similar items that go over the shoulder, it will look funny because your invisible arms will move the items around. However, this dress is so cool, you don’t really need to cover anything there and the cloak I am wearing here works perfectly fine. Inex certainly makes some of the most unique and carefully styled gowns in SL. Each one of her designs looks unique and you will most surely always recognize her style. I like her highlights and shading. Often times, these are done way too strongly, but not here. The dress is beautifully textured and I like the not too exaggerated flare of the skirt. It is VERY reasonably priced too at only 360 Lindens/colour and comes in seven different colours.
