And another post already. I am so excited to see all the good stuff being made for WE LOVE RP! But… that will have to wait until I am done with my post for The Arcade, which is starting TOMORROW already. And also a bunch of awesome hairs! :D Guess which song I have been listening to? Yeah right, Ocarina of Time soundtracks. I bet you see it? :P
A couple of days ago I reviewed my first Tableau Vivant hair and I liked it. I commented that the ends of the strands seemed a little clumsy. I must say I was surprised when Mari1yn Magic IMed me and thanked me for the review. I was truly amazed because usually when a designer IMs me, I expect trouble coming my way (granted he isn’t the only one reacting so well to a review). But nothing like that, he actually said I had a good point. So when I got the hair for the upcoming round of The Arcade I was really, really happy to see much slimmer strands and slimmer tips. :) I already mentioned I like his muted textures a lot! The hair comes in two versions, the normal one displayed and a sleepy one, which is the rare and looks very tousled. :) Also, this style is VERY easy to combine with a lot of hats and things like that. Happiness!
In the picture below you can see most of the new hairs on the grid.
Exile is releasing these two really, really awesome styles for The Arcade as well. Look at those gentle waves and I LOVE how the windblown hair looks really, really realistic: A little messy yet still cute. :) I think Kavar Cleanslate really has hit the nail on the head with these hairs. The second one is super versatile and fits well with hats and similar items as well, plus, they are both suuuuper feminine. Big fan of these!
Queue Marlowe of Analog Dog surprised me with this one, it is super creative and I enjoy her textures more and more. Unfortunately I only got the red one (which is a rare, grumpy grumpy) after I already did the shot. Her tones seem to have really improved over time and I enjoy this style a lot. The highlights are so welldone, too! I only wish I could hide the accessories. It will be avilable tomorrow at The Arcade.
Mina Hair is going to release this fabulous hair at WE LOVE RP. :D It think it is a really cute style and I truly like that it isn’t yet another NEAT brow, but a halffinished one that doesn’t even have a tie. :) If you followed Mina Nakamura’s evolution over the past year, you probaly noticed how much she has improved. Her textures and tones have gotten better and better. Soooo looking forward to see all the messy braids in role-play. :) It the perfect out of bed style, imho.
The last one is a new release by Truth Hawks and well, do I really have to repeat myself yet again? I like it, and I like it a lot. :) I can say that the designers displayed are my current favs for red tones, though Truth always is a TINY bit ahead just because of the many options and maybe because I like his tones a LITTLE better.
Also, all of these use HUDS to tint the hair, so YES! YAY! Happiness! No more messed inventory. :)

WE LOVE ROLE-PLAY ist starting tomorrow at 3pm slt and we are al soooo excited about it. There are so many crazy awesome goodies and great deals for people to pick up! Don’t forget to check outour WEBSITE, where we update the previews as soon as they are being sent to us. You will also find the previews here on The Blogging Elf. :)
So, let me tell a brief story: Calico applied for We Love Role-Play and we declined her for several reason. We were simply not convinced. A day after I sent the message (I really loathe doing that!) Calico Ingmann IMed me and I got prepared inwardly for lots of butthurt and a shitstorm.
But nope, nothing like that happened at all. In fact,a very friendly, if somewhat sad seeming Calico asked me what the reasons were and I reluctantly explained them. It makes me feel awkward giving feedback so directly especially when a person is very polite and kind. I pointed out our main concerns and we brainstormed a bit on what could be improved. She said she’d work on it, what already surprised me!
Two days ago, Calico IMed me again to tell me she had redone ALL her textures and her meshwork. Then she sent me a review copy. I was worried…what if I still didn’t think it was good? I put on the hair, and while it is no style I would wear regularly, my eyes almost dropped out of my head. I think my first response to her was something along the lines of ‘WOW.’
Calico Ingmann’s new textures are amazing imho and easily up on par with many of the famous hair designers out there. They are soft and natural looking, subtle highlights and the colours are well chosen. Each colour-package comes with a HUD to tint the hair which is another big plus in my book. I am very much in love with these and love that she told me she’d update her newer styles, too!
But not only the textures improved majorly! Her meshwork did, too. Before, it always seemed a little too chunky too me, not gentle curves but blocky strands. Now? I see soft curls and smooth strands that look entirely natural. It looks so soft I wanna bury my face in it. I am very much convinced that with her current improvements, Calico really stepped up her game and now can compete with the popular creators out there again.
Also, each part of the hair accessory is tintable with a HUD. :) I chose autumny colours for this style.
I really ask you guys, even those who always frowned upon the mere mentioning of her store, to give this store a chance. Not only has she improved her hair within only two weeks by more than a 100% in my book, but also she proved to be an incredibly mature person with an admirable attitude that deserves applause. No one likes to hear negative things about their products, but where many, many designers would have blown up in my face and complained all over the social media to raise a mob against that terrible woman who dared to point out bad stuff about their items, Calico instead took the hints and ideas and WORKED. And the result is sooo worth to have a look at, so wait for her new releases! :)
We for sure invited her for WE LOVE RP now and are glad to have her in!
And here you can see Calico’s hair from behind!
Yasum Designs by Azlyn Vaher is a store that utterly confuses me. Most of the time, I totally get lost in their huge, confusing layout and give up frustrated after 20 minutes, haha. I have been frequenting their store in the past at times, but lately it seems they really improved their game. These boots are really to my liking! They come ins everal earthen colours and are part of a gacha which’s price is 75L. The mesh is welldone from what I can tell and…I LOVE the straps and lacings! Lacings! Azlyn made me an happy elf with these. :) I also like the unique idea of adding a bit of a metal part to the boot, giving them quite the badass look. Don’t you dare to let me kick you! :P
