Don’t think I can forgive you – News from The Secret Store, Noodles and more!

Hey peeps!

Sorry that it took me so logn to get this one done. I have been sick the past three days now and am feeling terribly tiered/feverish, so didn’t get around to do it yet. However, I really want to show you the current outfit that I wear, even if it is a tad more outlandish than usual. :)

The top!

The upper part of this dress is actually a minidress which you can currently buy at Collabor88. It is an item provided by Maylee of for The Secret Store and it is super, super cute. Plus, you can easily combine it with pants/long skirts and turn it into a fullfledged dress! :D The price of only 188 Lindens per colour is really decent as well. The dress comes in 10 different colour combinations which are all tasteful and several ones are absolutely fitting for medieval or gorean settings. I like the cut of this top a lot and I can see it worn both combined with other items as a gown as well as a simple tunic in Gor. Maylee is known for her pretty textures and welldone meshes and I think it shows in this dress. Also, despite the somewhat creative cut of the dress, I have experienced noooo alpha issues here. :)

The bracers!

I am a sucker for detailed, realistic armorpieces. :) Natalee Oodles of Noodles is offering these bracers at the current round of WE LOVE RP and I loooove them. Not only is the texture pretty (I really like the subtle golden/silver pattern) but they are also nicely detailed with buttons and lacings and a double-layered model. :) These make a really cool addition for all kinds of badass outfits, yet they are also pretty enough to pimp some more elaborate and fancy outfits like I did here. They come in ten tasteful color variations together with a matching collar. The price of 225 Lindens is a discount of 25% and only available at WE LOVE RP so come get these. :)

I know what my heart believes! – News from Keystone, Tres Blah, Lark and moooore!

Hey peeps!

New outfit, new post. Collabor88 opened up and this round’s theme offers a LOT of opportunities for us role-players to shop there. :) WE LOVE RP is open now and Tales of Fantasy started today, too. But lets have a look at the outfit!

The headpiece!

The headpiece shown in all three pictures is a new item offered by Aymee Monk for her brand Keystone and currently is available at WE LOVE RP. Aymee has come such a long, long way. This so far is one of my absolute favs. I love the texture of the gems (they are changeable via a HUD!) and the general shape of the item. Aymee really has found a niche for her brand, which definitely is focusing on crowns/tiaras and other kinds of headpieces. I like her metal textures a lot, most of the time they seem very realistic. In this case, she was a little braver than usual and the headpiece comes as a part of a whole set, including pieces for the arms and legs. Very, very pretty and her gemtextures are constantly improving too. :) Definitely a must buy!

Blog384PS_1 copy

The dress!

O-M-G! Whenever Juliette Westerburg of Tres Blah releases something it is pretty much guaranteed something I like. This dress is SO pretty. It comes in five different colours and in standard sizes. It only costs 188 Lindens and is available at Collabor88 and certainly made it among my top ten of dresses. The dress goes over one shoulder and I really enjoy the soft, silken texture, which isn’t over shaded and highlighted but JUST right. The added, braided belt is a cute little detail. I also like that there is no strong shading for the boobies. Nothing is weirder than a size L that has the SAME size of drawn on boobs like a size S or even XS. That always looks so odd. :D The only wish I would have is that the upper part of the shoulder (which has a golden sort of texture part) could have been a bit more detailed, maybe with some kind of buckle.

The fountains!

The foundains displayed are the newest item by Sienia Trevellion for her brand Lark at Collabor88. They come in five different colour versions (of which each one is really tasteful and fitting!) and both as a fountain and in a simple planter version. The fountains have a LI of 10. I really like the detail and ornaments and the water is very well done as well. These can be placed against a wall and make for a super nice decorational item in any roman/greek or gorean inspired sim imho. :) I absolutely love the texture of the little ’tiles’ and the shells/snails. The price of only 88 Lindens for each piece is a really great deal in my book. So people of Ancient Rome(Greece/Gor: Go get these! :D

Dare to love me? – News from WE LOVE RP, Exile and Roawenwood! :D

Hi guys!

It was a busy week again. Returned from Crete, got WE LOVE RP started and then my mum spontaneously invited the family into a hotel in the middle of nowhere. Tired now. :D But, lets have a look at what I put together! This time, I was trying to get for a wilder, more barbaric look. :)

The top!

This top is so rad! It’s an item sold at WE LOVE RP by Searlait Nitschke for Roawenwood and it’s SO cool for all kinds of barbaric or maybe even roman inspired characters (Gladiators??!!). It’s a template but I am a huge fan of the texture on this piece (it comes in three different variations, I am wearing the most worn looking one) and the price of only ~ 100 Lindens is insanely good too. :) I can imagine this being layered and combined with a LOT of different kind of outfits. Totally a must have for any badass girl in my book. :)

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is available at Uber, a new event founded by Kaelyn Alecto and Truth Hawks (and there is a LOT of awesome stuff there!) and is an item provided by Kavar Cleanslate for his brand Exile. It is so damned prettyyyyy. Wipsy strands and a very loosely braided tail and a look that implies just a little bit of wind blowing at your face. Super nice. I am also a fan of Kavar’s reds, because he offers quite a few of tones (10 to be precise) in the whole package. I am wearing the rubine tone in this pic. Definitely a style that is worth a try. :)

Goodbye and see you soon! – With news from ieQED and The Forge. :)

Hi guys!

This is just a quick post really, but I totally wanted to display these fashionable items. :) In four hours I will be on my way to Crete so please forgive any spellign mistakes, I am flailing around here! :) I will be gone from July 23rd until August 4th (WE LOVE RP will start on the 6th!) and all desigerrs/eventmanagers should be aware by now (sent out notecards!).

The floral crown!

This crown is a rare item from a Gacha at The Secret Affair and offered by Sigifaust Resident of ieQED. It is SO damned pretty. The best part is that you can resize it in all directions and thus make it fit to your head nearly perfectly. The flowers are really welldone, very detailed and very, very pretty imho. The other items in that gacha are good as well, so even if you are not a fan of gachas, you’ll get pretty items! :)

The necklace!

Deccan Arida of The Forge roooooocks. I would not be surprised if all of these ar esold at at Project Limited. We were discussing designs for necklaces one evening and the next morning, he came up with this, very much based on an idea we had found on the internet. The man is so fast, yet stilldelivers great quality. The man’s insane and this item is very much worth it.

Will you stay with me my love? – News from Truth, Tia, Evie’s Closet and much more! :)

Hi guys! :)

I am in the middle of preparations for the next holiday on Crete! Sooo excited, but still so much stuff to do!

Also, stay tuned for the Mystic Realms Faire coming up in October 2014! More infos will be coming soon! Voshie Paine, Catheryne Darkfury and I are – together with our team- working hard to put together an awesome, two sims wide faire for you to shop at. No gambling, pay and get what you want! :D  I am terribly excited about this and the list of designers who’ll be contributing is awesomesauce. :)fin logotype redo 2

But now, lets have a look at the outfit. :)

The hair!

Braids are the new cool thing lately, I sweaaaar! I see them everywhere, and it makes me happy because it was about time. It is rare though that people really manage to pin it for me. A lot of braids are not very well shaded so they just don’t really look all that good. Not in this case though! :) I love Xantheanne by Truth because it is wavy, pretty and rather unique. There aren’t many styles like this that I have seen and liked. This looks as if it actually could work in rl and I LOVE how it isn’t just straight hair, but curly. Very, very pretty and girly. :) The only small thing I would maybe have added? A  string of sorts that keeps the braid tied up. :D But that’s really minor.

Blog380PS_1

The necklace!

I like dainty stuff at times. I don’t want BAM IN YOUR FACE all the time. Sometimes dainty and delciate works just as well for me and may as well be an eyecatcher. The necklace shown is an item provided by Tia Biscuit of Tia, available at The Secret Affair. We all now her for her awesome furniture and finally she has gotten the hint that she’s good at other stuffs, too! :D This necklace is reall, really cute and I like the textures she used a lot. For 175 Lindens this is a good deal as well. Plus, it really is a cute and unique design. :)

The dress!

Omg, gasp! Arica blogs a template dress again! Ewww! How dare she! Yes, I do. I do because this dress quite simply rocks. Evangeline Miles of Evie’s Closet once again has proven that wonderful textures on a template can make a gorgeous and even unique looking item. I love this dress, it is perfect for a somewhat rustic look and also allows us to show some ARM and wear some armor or jewelry there. :) The textures are plainly really, really awesome. The only thing that I noticed is that I would always include meshsizes still, even if you offer a fitted mesh variant of an outfit. Buy this pretty dress at WE LOVE RP!! :)

Pastels are a girl’s best friend! – News from Aisling, LeLutka, Lost Junction

Hi guys!

The Secret Affair started today and Genre too! Along with many, many other events, such as Kustom9, The Liaison Collaborative, Genre and more! :) It’s ideal mid-month shopping time now. But this post will mainly feature items offered at The Secret Affair and Genre. So lets have a look!

The hair!

This hair is one of the new styles by Thora Charron for Lelutka at Hair Fair 2014. It is so, so, so pretty. I like the strands that stand apart from the rest and I am a definite fan of Lelutka’s textures. Her reds have a broad range (from gingers to actual reds), her blondes are really pretty imho and she is one of those few designers that offer truly black styles.  I bought the essential’s package which only include one true red tone, Jessica, but it happens to be my fav! The mesh is smooth and I cannot see anything wrong with the rigging either. I do however wish there was an option to not only tint the hairband and leaves (via a HUD), but also to hide them completely. It does have a very roman look to it which doesn’t always go well with all outfits. Still, definitely one of my favourite styles lately by that store!

Blog379PS_1

The necklace!

Tala Laval once was producing mainly for Losthaven together with Lucia Cyr, but she also ventured into new spheres and now is making her own stuff under the label Lost Junction. And to my mind, this necklace is a real eyecatcher. It is currently available at Genre for only 100 Lindens. The textures she is using on this one are sooo welldone. The pearls loos very, very real and the metal texture and the tone of the metal part are plainly gorgeous. :) It comes in various pastellic colours, with or without the metal application or alternative a cute bow. For that price, this item is an instant grab. :)

The dress!

Druunah Esharham and Damian Kleiner of Aisling are offering this dress at The Secret Affair! A range of plain colours will soon be released at the mainstore, so keep your eyes open. This presented colour here is exlcusive to the event and won’t be sold afterwards. This dress is truly, truly unique. I have seen many dresses over the past year and this one ranges among the top three of it, easily so. The mesh is gorgeous and the best part is that you can wear all the items separately from one another. :D I truly enjoy Aisling’s eye for details such as the little clasps that keep the skirt slightly lifted and attached to the corset. It also leaves the feet free so you can actually show off your shoes/feet. :D The only small thing that I notice is that maybe the highlights could be just a tad brighter. But that’s really not something that bothers me at all. :) The balance between highlights and shadows on this dress is really good imho.

I look up to the sky above – News from Spellbound, Zenith and Drift! :)

Hi guys,

a new post and a couple of really pretty dresses. :) This post is a little shorter, but I have some mor eoutfits up my sleeve which hopefully I’ll be blogging soon. I am going to visit my family for a week and well, I am not entirely sure yet if I’ll be able to get on SL there. But lets have a look at what Arica is wearing today! :) Also, stay tuned for a Hair Fair Post soon! :D

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is currently available at Collabor88 and is a new style by Spellbound. The designer, Kohana Xue, relatively recently appeared upon the hair-horizon and her hairs are gorgeous. I am in damn love with her textures, especially because each colour package comes with sooo many options: Ten tones and each one with a roots and a no roots version. Her textures are pretty and the meshes are super smooth, just sometimes her hairs appear to be a bit big on me and they are NOT necessarily always realistic, but…hey. The store is called Spellbound, do you expect realism all over with a name like that? I surely don’t and I love it. The below hair is extra cute. I am not usually a fan of shorter hairs but I couldn’t pas son this one because of the ubercute little braid on the forehead. I love it! :)

Blog378PS_1

The first dress!

The dress on the picture above is offered by Zenith for Collabor88 as well. Miffyhoi Rosca surely has improved a ton over the past 6 months or so and you can spot her store in more and more events lately. This dress is really, really plain cute. I love the ruffles on the chest and I personally like the slim waist and the fact that you can so easily add a waist belt there. The pattern on the lower end are really welldone and cute. I did however notice some weird alphas issue. I am wearing the dress in XS, but I had the same problem with S and even M: The boobs stick through! And granted, I already did make my boobs a lot smaller, down to 25. I am not sure, but I think that is something that needs fixing but I think it is manageable. (I simply used an additional alpha). I for sure think this dress is gorrrrrgeous. :)

The second dress!

The second dress is an item by Kallisto Destiny for Drift Fantasy and is available at WE LOVE RP.  It is a template, yes. I don’t care. (/rant on) I am tired of the rant about templates and I think unless a designer is able to manage to do EVERY part of their creation themselves on an equally high level, they should probably stop belittling those that use templates. Using pre-made animations/scripts/textures is no different and just as ‘reptitive’. No one wants the same anims in every item either nor the same textures. I’ll prefer a wonderfully textured template dress over a wonderful mesh with mediocre textures. (/rant off) And this dress is really pretty imho. It comes in several different colours and the template has a very pretty design, perfect for fantasy and for mixing and matching. It had a very, very low cut cleavage on the back.  I like that Kallisto managed to pull off a texture that isn’t really silk, but looks still very extravagant and chic. It is fitted mesh and I detected a strange issue: When my boobs are small, they poke through! Even with the alpha. When I make my boobs bigger, they stop doing that. I figure I still have no idea how fitted mesh works but this confused me greatly. :D I think Kalli made a really nice entrance to the fantasy community with this offer of hers. :D

I hear the birds on the summer breeze – News from Truth, Tableau Vivant, Eldritch and DRD! :)

Hi guys!

WE LOVE RP started well into this round (I think) and there are a ton of awesome items to be had there. You should definitely not forget to check it out. The Secret Affair is starting on July 15h (take a look at their website!) and I think it is gonna be neat.

The hairs!

I love braids. I always did and still do in SL, probably because I never manage such perfect, thick braids in rl. So when I saw the new style Blythe by Truth I jumped a little. It is right up my alley. I like that it isn’t the usual kind of braids we see where the hair is parted right in the middle but is sideswept instead. The single loose strand at the front is really cute. As per usual, it comes with a boobie-version included as well.

The second hair (second picture) is one of my new favs. Tableau Vivant by M4ri1yn Magic has improved so, so, so much over time, both textures and the smoothness of the meshes. I remember only a year ago I thought their hair was too chunky, but now I truly like it. The style is called Panther and available at July’s round of Collabor88. The handband comes with a HUD and various options to colour it and is a really pretty detail. Unfortunately I realized too late that you cannot see the cute feathers on this picture, so you’ll have to believe my words or see for yourself. :D

Blog377PS_1

The peni…err…staff!

I swear I didn’t realize it until I was working on the picture and already had taken a gazllion of pics ingame. No, this staff does NOT normally look like a phallic symbol, in fact, it only does show a small resemblance from one perspective and together with this pose…well. Very prominent for sure and I got a lot of mockings for it. :D But aisde from that, this staff is available at WE LOVE RP and is an offer by Kiera Ashdene for her store Eldritch. Her textures are gor-ge-ous. I cannot emphasize it enough. The detail and amount of work she outs into her items always show and imho, this staff is a perfect addition for many kinds of fantasy characters. I really got nothing to complain, just watch out to find a better pose than I did. :D

The belt!

I sometimes wonder how Jaimy Hancroft of DRD manages to dish out sooo many awesome items in such little time. For WE LOVE RP she came up with this awesome belt with many, many pouches. :) Leather and pouches = happy elf. The amount of detail is really awesome on this one, lots of little buckles, pockets, buttons. Plus truly pretty textures and the price of 50L is totally ridiculous. I chose to ignore the little steampunkish application on one of the pockets, because this belt IS actually meant for steampunk, not so much for medieval fantasy. But I think it works. :)

Will you still be there for me? – So much awesome stuff! :)

Heya peeps!

I hope you all spent a lovely weekend! Mine for sure was good and very relaxed. :) WE finally booked all our flights etc., so this summer we are gonna go to Crete, hiking and beack combined. Looking forward to this! Fon’t forget that soon enough The Secret Affair will be starting again and stay tuned for infos about the new MYSTIC REALMS FAIRE being posted VERY soon! So keep your eyes open, this is gonna be a big event for sure. :)

Buuut, lets have a look at what Arica is wearing this time! :) Also, on a sidenote, the credits for this posts made me angry. :P

The cuffs!

The cuffs I am wearing are a current release by On A Lark for Tales of Fantasy and a common item of their gacha there. I really, really think On A Lark is a store we all need to keep a close eye on because Discovering Destiny, the owner, has been constantly improving. I really like her eye for details on her jewelry and these bracers certainly are super pretty. They come in various colours of which all are really pretty, though I personally still like gold and bronze best. Her goldtones are really nice, too. The cuffs come with a colourchanging HUD for the little pearls (you can see in the pics I use white and teal). The Bliss Cuffs are part of a three pieces set (collar, anklecuffs, cuffs), but you don’t really need all parts imho, because each part on itself looks good already. So for only 50L you have a good chance to grab this very pretty common item. :)

The dress!

The dress I am wearing is an item you can find at Gocha Merlin’s store Go! and is pretty awesome. Gocha has a penchant for really colourful, unique outfits. I really do like the gathered skirt on this dress and how it folds. I think it is neatly done. This item is honestly a bit on the steampunkish side of things and I am not a HUGE fan of the skull picture, but that’s a minor thing. I only wish the corset came separately, so I could mix and match a little more. I also noticed that with larger boobies you may have some poke-through-issues. Still, this dress is really neat and I think if you combine it right it works. :D Also, one of the versions she sells is currently 50% OFF! :D

The gauntlet!

The gauntlet in the picture below is an item by Remarkable Oblivion and it roooocks! The two designers behind RO (Nimvade ‘Blair’ Resident and Axsisthorn ‘Sebastian’ Resident) seriously know their work. :) The gauntlet comes in  three texture options and even includes an animation overrider for various hand positions. You can even force both hands into separare positions.. I am using the relaxed one on the picture. Their textures are plainly awesome, there is NOTHING to complain about it. I was a bit baffled just how HUGE the default version is, but resizing it was no problem at all. I think this makes some damned badass item for soooo many kinds of characters that wear plate or have had their hand replaced for some reason. I LOVE it! :)

I want to see the stars – News from Purple Moon, Eudora 3D and lots of hairs! :)

Heya peeps,

two more weeks until it’s finally the end of the schoolyear and I get to have a six week summer break. It’s about time, I am TIRED. :D Life is busy atm but I still managed to put together this outfit which is somewhat unusual and I really like it because of that! :)

Lets have a glimpse!

The squirrel!

This squirrel by Anya Ohmai for !Ohmai is adorable. I am not usually a BIG fan of the giant influx of plushies al over the place, but some always manage to stick out and this is one of them for sure. For this steampunk inspired outfit it is perfect. :) I love the incredibly welldone textures as well as the generally – somewhat unnatural- cute shape…plus the mini goggles! :) It comes with various options to hold and rez it and certainly is a good companion for anyone who like ssteampunksih outfits..or maybe plays a pilot? :)

The dress!

This dress by Purple Moon (Poulet Koenkamp) is, imho, a proof that templated clothing in SL does not equal uncreative and boring outfits.  It comes in two parts, the upper jacket and the lower skirt, so it can be worn and combined separately. I LOVE this dress. I love that it has the hi-low cut so that it displays your legs while still not being too sexy. :) There are far too few of these kinds of skirts out there! I really like the texture of the jacket. The skirt is nice too, but for me the jacket beats it since I am suck a sucker for leathers. :) This template also comes with a great deal of little details, for example the ruffled part on the belly and the metal applications. Pretty! And the best part is, it is an RFL item at Fashion For Life, which means a set percentage gets donated. :)

The boots!

Eudora 3D is a store that has been around for little more than a year by now. In my opinion, Eudora3D Resident is one of the best shoe-designers in SL hands down. His designs are incredibly real looking and the textures are so, so awesome. These shoes are SO perfect for victorian or steampunkish styled avatars. They come in two different colour packs with 12 texture options each. Each package is 650 Lindens, the fatpack is 950 Lindens, which is one hell of a deal. :D Their shoes are not on the cheapie side of the scale but still very reasonably priced for the awesome quality you get and the myriad of options. If you compare the whole package you buy here with similarily priced shoes elsewhere, you will realize they aren’t really expensive at all. I really hope Eudora will make more medievalish boots soon! Hint, hint, hint! :P
