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! :)

My cozy home – News from WE LOVE RP and The Arcade!!! :D

Hey peeps!

WE LOVE RP and Arcade finally started and I have been sitting on quite some blogging stuff or quite some time and haven’t gotten to post it yet because this round of WE LOVE RP was a real mess behind the curtains. :D Not in any drama-eaque way, just waaaaaay too many little things going on (and going wrong) at once. I am so glad this round still started relatively smoothly and finally now I can blog again. :) This post will feature a LOT of items from WE LOVE RP and The Arcade.

The wagon!

This wagon is quite plainly gor-ge-ous and is offered by Annie Ibanez and Zelest Fall for their store Stormwood at WE LOVE RP. I didn’t really trust my eyes when I saw it at first especially when I saw it has only 10 LI. It comes in four different colour versions. The textures are absolutely pretty and the whole design is super, super cute. I think this is a PERFECT item for many, many medieval-ish kinds of sims. At only 525 Lindens this item is a real steal as well. The textures of the cloth can be changed via an easily navigable HUD. It has two windows and on the inside there’s enough room to make it cozy and cute. The ONLY thing that would have been cool would have been some little additions like a hanging lamp, or a campfire…something along those lines. But eh, complaining on a very high level here. I am super happy to have this in my inventory now! :) You guys definitely need to watch this store, all of their items so far have proven to be great and some real competition for similar stores!

The wooden staff!

The wooden staff in the picture below shall be a druid’s next favourite item for sure. Or maybe a mage’s? I know for sure that this is one of the most detailed staves I have seen in some time now. I love the amount of details Druunah Esharham and Damian Kleiner of Aisling manage to implement into their items. This staff is not only incredibly pretty imho with awesome textures and a really cool design, but also the glowing runes you see constantly disappear and re-appear. The pearls and ropes wrapped around the staff and the big crystal are really, really pretty. the colour of the crystal and the runes can be changed through a  HUD. The most startling fact however is the price: 263 Lindens for this item is incredibly generous. So, instant buy for me and it is available at WE LOVE RP!!

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is a style by Mina Nakamura for her store Mina and is called Femke. It will be available tomorrow at the Fashion for Life Fair and is a completey new style. 15 % of it will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life Foundation. So not only are you getting an awesome hairstyle, btu you also support a good cause. :) This hair is really, really pretty imho. I often encounter the problem that Mina’s hairs are too big for my head but this isn’t the case here. It fits perfectly. I love this side-swept style. As per usual, it comes with a  materials and a non materials version, both for smaller and bigger boobies. I also noticed that this hair once again seems to have improved strands which look a lot slimmer and more natural than some of the older styles. Big fan! :)

I’ll take your head – News from Alchemy, Just Design and Remarkable Oblivion!

Hi guys!

The past few days I was incredibly busy with WE LOVE RP, so the blog had to wait for a bit. LL was apparently messing with some servers which required some extra measure of time to get everything going but once we did, the sim was packed again and still is. :) I am very happy with the quality of items this round once again. Also, check out The Secret Affair, which started today! It is a gacha event, so people take some time to shop and it might take you a while to get in, be patient!

But enough of that! Lets have a look at my recent outfit. :)

The headpiece!

Are you a mermaid/merman? Are you a pirate? Do you work near the water in role-play? Then this is YOUR headpiece for only 199L in three versions at WE LOVE RP. I love it. Small beads and shells, a seastar and other things fished from the sea have been combined into a really, really pretty item. It may not be an every day item, that’s true, but it IS an item that is super welldone and incredibly pretty…and so very fitting for certain kinds of avis. Even male avis should have a look at it, because it comes with a version that has a pretty cool bandana, too, and gives you just the right look for a pirate. :) Love this, but honestly, I expected nothing but awesome textures and awesome quality from Remarkable Oblivion by AxisThorn Resident and Nimvade Resident. :)

Blog352PS_1

The boots!

These boots by Davidefre Resident for Just Designs at WE LOVE RP make me ridiculously happy. They are reduced by 200 Lindens from 495 to 295 Lindens and are NEW! Rugged leather with suede and lacings and buckles, OVERKNEES and…flat. I am so tired of heeled boots in role-play. Don’t girls know how ridiculous they look when they try to pull off badass and waddle around, trying to fight in 6 inch heels? Tsk. These are gorgeous! Dave really outdid himself on these and I happen to know it was a long learning process for him, too, because he has never made anything like this before. He showed me a ton of WIP and I kept telling him to change this or that..and he actually listened! I LOVE the texture options, I love the look of these. The textures are gorgous and the choices of colours available are awesome: brown, dark brown, black and white. I have been waiting for SO long for new, awesome flat overknees and finally someone delivered. These are the perfect choice for every badass girl out there. :)

Blog352PS_2

The staff!

Nina Helix and Tyr Rozenblum collaborated again on this staff for Alchemy, available at WE LOVE RP and a matching item to the druid headdress from the last round. :) The high fantasy look is just awesome and so perfect for mages, shamans or druids. I am a big fan of their goldtones, I think I mentioned that once already. The ONLY tiny thing I personally would have possibly changed would be the woodtexture, which seems a little smooth, but given that this is a high fantasy weapon for sure, that can be excused. :) I think this item shows the amount of creativity these two can produce together. It really does remind me of professional creations for various high fantasy games and as per usual, they delivered great quality. :)

Be my Embrace! – News from Magika, Truth, On A Lark, Aphorism and moooore. :D

Hiya peeps!

Busy, busy week! But I got around to pick up a couple of items that I really like and combine them into a new outfit. Truth has some new hairs out! Check them out. :) Genre has started and there are quite a few new and nice things out there. :D Lets have a peek at what my elfy is wearing.

The hair!

I am in utter love with the hair shown on the picture below. It is a new style by Magika (Sabina Gully) and it is gorgeous. It comes in three sizes and you can choose between three variations of colour HUDS, all of which include 30 (!!!) tones. For 250 Lindens, that’s a steal for sure. I only wish Magika would start to include hairs for bigger boobies, not that I need them personally, but it would be nice to have. I LOVE Magika’s textures and I was getting a little tired of her styles lately, so this one was a very, very nice surprise. Very different from everything she has and overall pretty unique. I very much like the small wisps of hair standing and the somewhat tousled look. Happiness in a folder! :D

Blog346PS_2

The tunic (and the crown)!

The tunic is an item I picked up at Discovering Destiny’s store On A Lark. I saw it and instantly thought it would be nice for mixing and matching it with other outfits. E voilà, it works! :) I have been watching this store for quite some time and noticed that she has moved on to making original mesh by now. I am not sure whether or not this is a template, but I like it! I don’t really care if it is, the texture is pretty and the design is just perfect for all kinds on outfits. There’s just one thing that bugs me: I cannot seem to find demos at the store. Or maybe I am blind? Not sure. I tried it anyways, which HONESTLY I rarely, if ever, do and I am glad I did so in this case. :)

Plus, check out this gorgeous crown on the picture above. I am in love, in love, in love. So far her best original mesh piece hands down. :) Available NOW at Genre!!!

Blog346 PS

The boots!

Boots for role-play are a rare find on SL. Especially if you don’t want to play some trashy hooker, don’t want to look totally out of place in a medieval sim and don’t want zippers or SHINY leather all over the place. I squee’ed when I saw these boots at Rucy Byron’s store Aphorism. I am a BIG fan of rough looking, thick leather and buckles. :) I enjoy the thick wrinkles and the general shape of these. They come in various sizes and the price of 350 Lindens seems very reasonable for original mesh. :) Also, hint, hint: A darker version of these are the current GROUPGIFT available at the store. I’d highly recommend to pick those up! Imho, these boots fit well into any kind of medievalish environment. :D

Still gotta die for someone – News from ANE, Ronsem and WE LOVE RP!

Hi guys,

new day, new post! This round of WE LOVE RP received some really awesome feedback so far, so I am really, really happy. In this post I am featuring quite a few new exciting items. :)

Blog345PS_2

The buttbag/hipbag!

Anemysk Karu has released this awesome bag at The Chapter Four for her brand Ane. I LOVE it. It comes in the typical five standard sizes and several colour variations. this is SUCH a great idea. As a role-player, I am constantly looking for good accessories to enhance a look and make it unique, and the combination of a bad with a belt is just awesome. I squee-ed when I saw it. I love the texture and the rigging is really well done. In size M, it seems to fit with most of my pants, too, and even with several of my tighter fitting miniskirts. Super awesome, creative item imho, and I LOVE bags. I just cannot seem my elf casually carrying a fancy handbag around, but this is right up her alley.

The boots!

I saw these boots on Verinne Ansar’s Flickr and got them right away! They are made by Ronsem (Eow Reverie) and belong to my favourite category: FLAT and thigh high. There are so very, very few of these, so this was one of my happiest finds lately.  I really like the shape of these because SO many thigh high boots are shaped in a way that make your legs look like sticks. These fit well with several of my meshpants (the ones I am wearing on the pics are by Senzafine) which is a  huge plus as well. The texture if nice, though a few more details would have been nice, maybe things such as lacings etc. They come with a color HUD and various options, I personally like brown and black best. I am not sure whether or not these are actually original mesh, but it doesn’t matter to me much either, because they are pretty!

We Love Dresses – Don’t we? :)

Hi guys,

WE LOVE RP is starting today and imho this round is really, really awesome. 58 designers who crafted awesome items for you. I am giving a preview of some of my personal favourites here. :) Well, the first ones, the rest will follow soon enough. :)

The dresses!

These four dresses will ALL be available at WE LOVE RP once it starts today. All four of these dresses are so very different, yet so very awesome at the same time. To my knowledge, all of these are new releases AND original mesh, besides the dress by Evie’s Closet, which is a template.

1. Dress: The first dress is provided by Inex Hax for Peqe and is truly regal design imho. Loving the colouroptions and loving the textures, too! The shading on this gown is pretty much perfect, even when I zoomed in I could detect no lazy edges that other designers often seem to leave. I wish the upper part could be worn separately, but that’s really just nitpicking. :) I enjoy this dress a lot and I think it is PERFECT for elves. :) I have a feeling I will be wearing this a lot. :P

Blog344PS_2

2. Dress: Evangeline Miles has made this dress for Evie’s Closet and once again proves all those elitist wrong that insist that only original mesh is worth its money. Nope, wrong. Evangeline’s textures are marvelous and iho make up 100% for the fact that she is using a template here. I love this dress, I love the colouroptions available and I think the template she chose is terribly pretty. Probably even my personal fav.

Blog344PS_1 copy

3. Dress: DreamFantasia Nightfire is offering this dress for her store The Library. The shape is gorgeous and the colour really got me. I like the silky texture with the great highlights and also love the ‘ruffle’ that goes from to chest towards the back, it adds a nice detail. A simple yet incredibly elegant dress. Dream has come a long way, from using templates that used to look pretty …hmmmm…to this dress. Her progress has been insane.

4. Dress: Chandra Masala has designed this dress for her brand Apsara and as per usual, she is using strong colours and oriental (I hope this expression is right?) notes to enhance her items. Imho, you can spot “a Chandra” almost immediately among other dresses, her style is just THAT unique. As far as I know, she usually is inspired by indian fashion. It is original mesh and I LOVE the bright colours she uses. I think this dress would be PERFECT for various roles in various role-play settings. :) Very pretty!

The sun hasn’t died – News from WE LOVE RP (Peqe, Milk, The Skinnery and more!)

Hiya peeps!

We LOVE RP had a bit of a bumpy start but after our landlord finally (!!!) agreed that setting the avatar limit to 100 was a really bad idea (he had to see it for himself I guess) things finally went smoother. In the end, we got a LOT of positive feedback about the new layout. Special thanks to Nina Helix who has outdone herself on the houses. :)

But lets have a peek at my outfit now!

The hair!

This is a super lovely style by Milk (Kattington Resident) called Queen of the Court and is available at WE LOVE RP. The style itself is gorgeous and I think you can already seem more imporvement again. The strands have become finer, less thick and chunky and they seem to blend very well. I like the single, wispy strands a lot and while onthe brown tones the textures seem a bit flat, I like the red versions very much. :) The red tones are nice as well!

Blog337PS_2

The ears! (see the very bottom of this post for a good view of them!)

A while ago Umazuma Metaluna of The Skinnery released the cute Puki mesh elven ears which were undoubtedly the best mesh ears on the grid the moment they were released. Unfortunately, they were -small- elven ears and not the elongated kind. So, I (and likely others, too) begged her to make long ones, too. And she did! And she released them for WE LOVE RP. I squee’ed when I saw them. They are imho the by far best elven ears on the grid. They are tintable and work with appliers for her own skins, thus you can make them blend in seamlessly. The texture is really pretty and they don’t make you look like Yoda either! Very easy to tint and adjust and the price of 150 Lindens for these is a joke and  makes these an instant buy for me. I don’t think any of the other available ears can really keep up with these (Mandala’s are really well done with awesome features,  but make you look like Yoda and are no mod…) at the moment.

The dress!

This gravity defying dress is currently avilable at WE LOVE RP as well and is offered by Inex Hax of Peqe in three awesome colours! I really love the style of the dress and the texture as well (especially the wrinkled at the stomach area). You can easily combine this with many other items and I think it looks hot with sandals or overknee boots. I did notice that for some reason even size M was a little big for Arica around the waist and she’s not exactly a big avatar. Also, I wish there had been some sort of neckholder been added in order to explain as to why the dress stays up! Maybe it is glued to her boobs tho! :D

And here are the awesome ears!

Skinnery

Kept awake dreaming someone else’s dream – News from Mandala, LeLutka, Melodic and more! :)

Hiya peeps! :)

So, it appears the designergods have been kind and have been whispering into designer-ears that there is an endless amount of elves desperately hoping for new ears. After the marvellous ears released by The Skinnery, which are unfortunately too short for me, Mandala came out with new ones which are just gorgeous. :) But lets see!

The ears!

O-M-G!!! So, Kikunosuke Eel of Mandala released new ears, elven ears even! And they come with a SHITLOAD of options. You can decide between four sets: Simple ones, two urban styles and a fantasy style. The fantasy style comes with a giant HUD, where you can choose the various skincolours, the colours for the beads, the colour for the eartips and the colour for pretty feathers which are hidden in my hair. The best part is: You can also decide to just hide ALL of those and go with simple ears. :) The texture on these is plainly awesome and the presets for the skintones make it really easy to fit them to the various tones of different skins. I really LOVE the idea of the tinted eartips. :D Very, very pretty design. You can resize them as well through a resizer script. Mine are smaller than the default size. They also come in a long and a short version of which I am displaying the latter. The only thing that bothers me a little is that Mandala went for the Yoda-style as I call it: Instead of having the tips go up and close to the head, they stick out. But I don’t think it looks bad and it’s far from being as bad as some ears out there. Really, really nicely done. However, 777 Lindens is a high price and either I am blind, or there is no demo. WHich obviously did not prevent me from buying them!Blog298PS_2

The hair!

I have always been a fan of Thora Charron’s hair for LeLutka. Yesterday I visited randomly, spotted Thora and YAY! New hair! She released three styles of which this one is my fav. I LOVE how sleek it looks. LeLutka often designs hair which fits VERY snugly to the headshape, which means you’ll likely have to wear the alpha. While that is a bit of a letdown, I think it’s also nice because it makes it so much easier to fit for example hats, headpieces and such. LeLutka’s textures are, among Truth, Exile and Liquence, my fav ones. They don’t look dry and very silky and I really like her tones, too. :) I also enjyo that she offers versions for people with larger boobies. :) This one for sure was an instant buy for me. I also like the fact that they are so very straightly cut. Well invested money in my book! :P

The dress!

Aymee Monk of Keystone sent me this dress two days ago which she released for her subbrand Melodic, which she created in order to sell clothing. While it is a template, I enjoy the texture she chose for this one and the style itself. I am showing the plain version, yet there is also one available that had golden ‘ropes’ winding around the stomach area, which is a very nice detail. The dress comes in various tasteful colours, of which teal, dark red and black are my total favs! :) I think the shape of the dress combined with the texture makes for a really elegant look that might very well work for non-rpers, too!

What would life be like without a few mistakes? – Enfant Terrible, Ryvolter, Genre and more! :)

Hiya peeps!

I always really loathe those days before x-mas. Stressiest time of the year EVER! Argh. But I managed to put together a vintage inspired new outfit regardless. :)

New hair from Truth!

Truth Hawks released a BUNCH of new hairs this week! I am displaying two of the new ones ont hese pictures. :) Really liking these, though my fav is probably a cute one with two little buns on the back of the head, but that one didn’t go so well with this outfit. :)

The headpiece!

Jalilah Jewell of Enfant Terrible is slowly venturing into new areas with her stuff. She already left GSpot, a purely rp based brand, behind and developed her new brand, and now, her stuff is more and more appealing to both mainstreamers and role-players alike. :) I am a fan of this, though I hope she won’t forget us fellow rpers in the long run. This one is suuuuper vintage inspired and you can get it at the current round of Genre. :) The textures are awesome and I love the combination of the sligfhtly oversized bow with the butterfly. Mwah! Perfect combination of colours, too, really subtle yet far from boring. There are more colours available, too. I am very much a fan of this and for 100L you can hardly do wrong.

The cape!

I pondered a long, long time wether or not I should buy this. When I saw the ad for it on Flickr I literally DASHED t Ryvolter by Sanya Bilavio to get it, but when I saw the price I was pretty appalled. More than 600 Lindens for a single, relatively simple item is a quite a steep price. Don’t get me wrong, I value good quality and I know that Ryvolter does deliver when it comes to that, the texture on this cloak is marvellous and the mesh is really pretty. But, then again, that price just seems pretty ridiculous. I can understand when complicated mesh outfits with several layers, shadows, belts, lacings and what not cost a lot of Lindens. But a simple item that doesn’t even come in the five standard sizes? Thats eemed like a joke to be very honest. I did think about this for a long time, but in the end, I decided to buy it. This might imply that after all, the item IS worth its price, but I have to say: less would be more adequate in this case. I LOVE the cape enough to buy it, yes. That is true. I think the textures and the idea of the item itself is great. It makes a nice addition to many outfits. However, when you cannot even be bothered to offer the normal sizes  you have to compare your own pricing to what’s actually out there. Granted, I might have bought 3 or more of these cloaks if the price had been around 300-400 Lindens, which means they would have made more money with me already. Spontaneous buying always depends on the price. I am very sure that if the prices were more reasonable, they’d sell more and come out with a nice plus. I can understand that some brands want to elevate themselves above others and try to show that with their pricin too, but this isn’t real life. I cannot TELL the difference between this cape and similar capes offered by other high quality brands for better prices and I am sure most others cannot tell either, so where’s the justification for the price after all? There isn’t even a visble batch on it that screams Ryvolter! :P

In the end my reasoning went like this. “I want to support original content designers, this may make me feel iffy because I think the price is not justified if you compare the complexity of this item to other items in this pricerange, but whatever. I like it.” In the end, I will probably buy what I like because I can afford it easily. I got other capes, too, and I for sure got more of them and felt less awkward about buying them.

All in all, this item IS very good quality from what I can tell. I love the texture and I love the flexibility of this item. So if you are prepared to pay a higher price than usual, buy it!

The chaps!

Azlyn Vaher of Yasum Designs is hiding these in her store! The vast majority of leg warmers don’t fit over any kinds of boots that I own and it really does look strange when you are decked in furs and legwarmers…and then wear ballerinas or sandals. These chaps work just as fine and are flares, so ost of my boots fit underneath. I like the texture, too and as a plus, these come with a Mega HUD that allows you guys to choose from a myriad of colour options for the straps, base and batches. :) Very happy with these!
