Rebranding: GSpot –_> Enfant Terrible, Handverk —-> ieQED! Check this out!

Hey guys!

An announcement today! No, actually, two!

GSpot becomes Enfant Terrible!

Jalilah Jewell of GSpot is rebranding her store. The new name is Enfant Terrible which I personally LOVE. It sounds a lot less ambigious than GSpot and allows her to strive away from the ‘gorean only’ store to become recognized as a creator by a greater public. She has built her own meshstore and I think the choice of colours she made for this one is great. Here is a preview:

Here is a video Jalilah made of her first items:

This is the new store logo. I think she really did choose well with this one, I love, love, love the combinations of colours!

Enfant Terrible

Check out her new Flickr as well! You can find it here: Enfant Terrible There is also more info on there.

Handverk becomes ieQED!

I already mentioned that Daphne Klossovsky rebranded her store Handverk to ieQED and some of the first items released under her new brand are the awesome pauldrons at WE LOVE ROLEPLAY, displayed here:

ieQED dragon.pauldron.ad

You can find her new store at this location: TAXI to ieQED.

Here is ieQED’s new Flickr, go check it out: ieQED Flickr

So, don’t forget to check out their awesome new stores!!! :) I am really excited for all the new upcoming items already. :)

For you, there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do – Beetlebones, Birdy, Aisling and ieQED!

Hey peeps,

after a rather rough week (vacations are over and chaos took over at school) I finally got around to put together an outfit which I personally really enjoy. I am recently been trying to go for variations of more colourful outfits instea dof JUST earthen colours while still trying to maintain some believability. Teal certainly is one of my favourite colours, so are purple and red. Hmmm. :)

The horns!

Druunah Esharham and Damian Kleiner of Aisling have remade their store and it is really, really pretty. Along with the new store, they are setting up a new gacha as well that cointains…horns. And not just  horns but really pretty horns in unique styles. As I mentioned when I credited Elicio Ember’s horns in my last, Aisling is one of the few stores that could keep up with the quality he provided and these horns are no different. The rares and ultra rares come with amazing textures, original mesh shapes and wonderful details. The ones I am displaying are called Boo and come with a set of wings as well. There is four different types: Cupid, Boo, Truffles and Coco, all of which are super cute designs. The rare Truffles are CANDY horns with little candies and cookies, the rare antlers have actual candles on them. Incredibly pretty imho, even though probably not an every day item.

The pauldrons!

Daphne Klossovsky recently rebranded Handverk into ieQED. First I was all confused about that name, but once Daph explained to me what it meant I started loving it and now it really got stuck in my head: id est Quod erat demonstrandum. Now, dear latin fans, do translate. :D Fact is, she joined this round of WE LOVE RP and is offering these amazing pauldrons. I love the scales with the dragonheads idea plus her golden textures, even if less warm than what I usually prefer, are really, really nice. The only thing that I think are missing are some straps to keep this realistically in place, because these pauldrons surely must be magical to stay in place! :P I think these are perfect for enhancing outfits and to give them a bit of a chic or even royal touch, plus…dragons! Hello? Perfect for fantasy rp, too.

The bear!

Well, I cannot write this post without commenting on the bear which is made by Nina Helix for Birdy. This bear is the cutest bear I have seen so far in SL. It comes as a cuddle version, a version for your shoulder, one for your head and several sizes for rezzing. And the best part is: Not only is this bear THE CUTENESS, but it is also only 50 Lindens and a groupgift for Bidy. You only gotta pay the fee to join Nina’s group and man…it is so worth it since she regularly offers very nice and generous gifts in general.

The boots!

Collabor88 started into a new round and Suetabulous Yootz of Beetlebones snuck in while I was there and rezzed these awesome laced up boots. Yes, they have heels. I admit it, I fell for them anyways. They are jsut so very, very welldone and I do have my hopes up that perhaps Sue will one day make a flat version of these. I think she would make a lot of role-players forever happy. I LOVE the lacings on these and the leathertextures. They come in several earthen colours of which all are good for role-play. They even have.. a zipper. I admittedly onyl noticed that after buying them because I was like DO WANT and bought them blindly. Welp. All I can say that Suetabulous is known for the incredibly quality of her items and these boots certainly don’t disappoint. Yet alone the fact that the zipper isn’t just a texture, but actual little meshparts and the details on both wrinkles and lacings are crazy. So if you are prepared to bear with zippers, buy these! I can honestly find nothing to criticise about these.

Feed the fire, break your vision – News from Truth and Paper Moon!

Heya peeps!

I am only half alive. I was at IKEA today for what must have been roughly seven hours (we planned to stay 1,5 hours…) and I spent a whole bunch of money on stuff for our new apartment. We’ll be moving this week into a really nice one and I am hoping, no, praying all goes well. I got an armory (??) just for shoes. 52 pairs to be exact. I am pondering to get a small one for my bf so I can have the big one all to myself. :)

So, here is my today’s outfit and I chose a location that is, colourwise, a little more on the unusual side for my blog, but I love it! Truth released new hair by the way of which all three are really awesome. Cute pigtails, a shortcut for girls (and boys?) and an sexy updo!

The wreath!

This lovely wreath by Sohma Dix for Paper Moon is available at the Horrorfest Event.100% item of the proceeds of this go to the Epilepsy Therapy Project. There are two other versions, too, a white and a red one. I personally liked this best due to its autumn-y feel. The rose are really, really pretty and the mesh very detailed. I very much like the texture on the petals and the shape of the roses, which seems really natural. I just wish the headband would have beem a little strong, it looks a bit as if the band just lays on your head which made me wonder how the roses are supposed to stay ON my head. Still, this item is super pretty imho and one of my favourite items so far from there.

The corset!

Dolce Blackflag of The Muses released this corset a while ago at We LOVE RP in brown, but I never got around to actually review it. Now is the time! The corset comes in seven (!) sizes and costs, if I recall correctly, 295 Lindens. It also comes with sleeves! What I like about this one is that it is not one of these exaggerated corsets that give you a TINY waist, but it only gives a slightly slimmer curve. Also, I very much like that fact it comes in both earthen and more colourful tones. The latches are really nice and I like the fact that they’re not super even, but that they gradually widen the further down you go. They are uneven, which adds to a realistic look. Also, this corset can be combined with soooooo many outfits. :) And I personally really love anything that is mix-and matchable. Also, to my knowledge this is original mesh. :)

Lesser Evils – Remarkable Oblivion, Collabor 88, Wizarding Faire and more!!! :)

Heya peeps!

So, lots of new event started or are about to start! And with them came a ton of really awesome items that I mixed into an outfit which is a little more elegant than what I usually wear. Truth Hawks released new hairs, too, of which I am featuring one in this post, so make sure to check them out. :)

The horns!

O-M-G. That’s pretty much what I thought when I saw these horns on Blair’s Flickr for Sebastian’s releases. They are a new soon to be released (at the Body Modification Expo!) item by Remarkable Oblivion. I need to find an excuse to have my fey’ri wear BIG horns! I love these. The textures are plain amazing, I cannot really think of any other word to describe it. The unique look of these is baffling, not only the little detauls such as the cuffs, chains and ropes, but also the wonderful texture adds a lot to the fact that I have hardly ever seen horns this well done. I think the only stores that can compete in my book are O.M.E.N and Aisling. Look at that little armor-part, too! Honestly? I always said “There are no perfect items” and I have really been trying to find something that could be mentioned as a suggestion, but aside from “Please make smaller ones, too?!” I cannot think of anything. Feeling weird now! But in a good way.

The imp!

This ‘imp’ is actually an elf by Anya Ohmai for Ohmai Emporium and you can buy it at the Wizarding Faire. Do I really need tos ay much more? It comes as BOTH a follower pet/worn pet AND as a whole avatar. I love it as a follower pet, now I’ve got my own little minion! I am a wee bit offended though that THAT is called an elf, haha! I think the facial expression is pretty much perfect and the animations are soooo smooth! They make me laugh, too, especially on the pic below where it looks as if the elf is saying something along the lines “Really Mistress, I swear, it was THIS big!” Anya Ohmai really has an eye for textures and creating unique pets with really great facial expressions. And unlike certain ripped follower pets from a certain store…ahem…Manticore…ahem…these pets don’t lag like hell! :D I think they are a truly great adidtion for role-play.

The dress!

Collabor88 started again yesterday and damn, i had a hard time getting in this round. But no surprise! So many great designers released great stuf and I want to praise Harry Hyx of ISON for presenting us with this dress which is only 88 Lindens, one of the very few actual 88 Lindens offers there. The texture is SO pretty and so are the several colours it comes in. I got teal and silverish/gray and I love them both. I LOVE the thighhigh gap in the dress to show some dress, even if it isn’t very medievalish. For only 88 Lindens, this dress is a steal!

The boots!

Fashionboi Landar of House of Fox released new boots at Collabor88 which cost 188 Lindens, which, too, is a great deal for these. They come in several variations and are wedges with nto super high heels which makes them valid for me, despite (!) the tiny zipper, which can be hidden easily though. The texture looks super leather and the sizes seem to fit well. As you can see in the picture, these boots are SUPER high up the thigh, which means you can make these look like pants if you combine them for example with a tunic or something similar. :)

Autumn is Coming! – News from Truth, Kunglers and more!

Heya peeps!

So, while I have been working on the sim and chatting with friends simultaneously I was working on this outfit and something was just amiss. Yesterday evening I found it! the cape by Kungler sis supercute and fits really well imho. :)

The hair!

Truth has released new hair again! This is one of them, a cute updo called Vida. I don’t think I have to praise his textures and meshwork yet again but look at this braid! I love the braid! Most updos are so sleek and tidy, btu this one really is cute and different from many other ones out there from what I have seen so far. The only thing that I would love, and it is something that Diva does, is if the strands by the sides, the loose ones, would have a little flexi to them. It would give the whole style a much softer look. Yes, flexi! I said it. I am not totally against flexi at all if used well. :)

Blog266PS

The cape!

AvaGardner Kungler of Kunglers is participaring in the Avenue Autumn Fashion Event and is offering a really neat outfit for autumn of which this cape is a part. I love the thick leather texture and the button at the neck to close it. I am a sucker for leather textures that are welldone. Onyl thing that irritated me is that the outfit was 600 Lindens and came with no size L for the cape. Not that I need it, which is why I didn’t tell her (yet), but  my folder for sure didn’t have that size. I think this cape (and the whole outfit really) is welldone. You shoudlc heck it out, even though the price is a little steep imho.

We LOVE RP – Part I!

Heya peeps!

So, We LOVE RP is starting today and we have got some truly amazing items in this round again. View HERE as well, a post for all the previews that we could get our hands on. :) Stay tuned for the SLURL to come soon! :)

The top and skirt!

Erielle Deschanel of The Lounge really, really has improved SO quickly and SO much over time. Her first releases were good but you could still notice she was relatively new to creating stuff. but now look at THIS! These two items are SO well textured that despite them being templates I instantly fell in love with them. She, too, i slearning to make her own mesh, however isn’t quite comfortable with it yet. I really, really am impressed with the details and very tasteful colours on these. The top, while simpler textures than the skirt, makes me haaaapppy! Why? Because I can mix and match the hell outta it. :) Check it out today at 3 pm slt at WE LOVE RP!

Blog253PS_3

The hairpiece!

Look at this cute little crown! Damascusvera Resident (aka Damien) of O.M.E.N really does such good work on his items and they are always soooo un-expensive. Really, they are much cheaper than they deserve to be. His makes all kinds of accessories and jewelry. In this case, I really love the attention to detail on the little flowers. Despite it being almost autumn, I still love flowers! He sells a VERY cute little house at WE LOVE RP this round, so check it out. :)

Can you hear the wind blow? – The Arcade is open!!! NEW stuff! :D

Heya people,

note to self first: Never again will I take pictures when SL is having server issues. One hour to get stuff attached is no fun. Also, never again will I log out to clear cache without having saved my outfit. Amen. Also, I tried around with PS some more. Not sure! I will have to work on it. Still though, my pics are only subtly processed. Windlight helps a lot. :)

That said, The Arcade started, and god damnit, someone hold me back please I spent a fortune there, for stuff I do not really need. But, the overall quality of items there is SO GOOD that I often just play the machines because I want to support the creator. Sooo many beautifully made items with VERY few that imho couldn’t quite keep up this round. I am impressed.

Just one thing: 64 LI for a ugly bag in which you sell your item, that does NOT deliver, neither upon click nor upon attaching it, is ridiculous. Because frankly, if it is 64, I expect a damned palace of a bag, not some crappy lil white box. No wonder I have not seen any La Gyo items at any yardsales. BIG grumble!

Blog252PS_3

The hair!

D!va hair by Marisa Kira is in The Arcade this round. I am usually a bit on the fence about her hair, but this one was too cute to not pick it up. Thank you Anemysk Karu, for giving me the red version! :) Marisa usually makes very soft, girly hair, with long, thin strands. I am always a bit sad that there are so few red options, but the hair is tintable (though the hairbase is not,so if you need it, that does not help!). This updo comes, as always, in two options (separate plays on the gacha though!) and I think it is very, very cute. I think it might be favourite updo for now!

The bolero!

Not long ago, Coral Lacey blogged this bolero by Chronokit. I instantly went to buy it, though admittedly I didn’t check…and it is Liquid mesh. Chronokit is known for their extremely welldone items and this one didn’t disappoint me in regards to quality either. I love the ruffles and the cute texture. :) Plus, the fatpack is only 350L for a bucnh of colors, so that is really a good deal. The price for one color was something around 100L I think.

However? It is so called liquid mesh. It only comes in one size that supposedly automatically adapts to your shape. I am NOT a big fan of liquid mesh when the item isn’t also offered in the usual standard sizes. Why? Because with liquid mesh, layering becomes a god damned chore. It was mad work to get this outfit to fit because -everything- had to be built around the bolero which only came in that one, self-adapting size. Blah. :(

What do you think of Liquid mesh? Do you think it is a good idea to sell items as liquid mesh only or should sizes still be included?

Oh, and one thing about the boots: I only detected they have a zipper on the back when I was already taking the pics. Ahem. I suppose they still work for skirts though. ;)

The bane of my existence – and NEWS from Kahli Designs! :)

Heya peeps!

Official statement: HUDs, even the easiest ones, are the bane of my existence. Yes, they are. I am too blonde to get them. /end

The outfit!

Kahli Designs is about to release their newest outfit: A tunic+pants outfit for gals! It comes in a wiiiide array of colours (16 to be exact) and in the usual standard sizes. You all know Kahli Designs (a teamwork by Kahlidesigns Resident and Viland Resident) for their awesome outfits for men and apparently my oh so subtle whining was heard. :) This outfit convinces its buyer with detailed textures, pretty colours and a very natural shape. The shape of the boobs is welldone, Mister Viland! :P Each colour comes with three texture choices: Clean, dirty and bloody. I am displaying the dirty version because I really like the rugged vibe it has. :) The colours range from earthen, natural colours to more vibrant ones. You can pick these via a HUD.

The rigging has, as per usual, been done very nicely. The tunic sits naturally (wearing size M, I feel fat compared to all those Size Zero avis, LOL) upon Arica’s shape. The best thing is though: It comes in four pieces: belt, boots (not shown), tunic and pants!. Wooohoo! All of these can be mixed and matched and worn separately. Yay for that! Also: The fatpack comes with a HUGE HUD instead of cluttering your inventory, too, which I love. :)

Imho, Kahli and Viland have don a very good job on this one!! There is but a TINY hint of a ponyrider effect, but it is barely noticeable on me. Plus, I really love the stitchings on the sides of the pants, too. :)

So, why do I whine about HUDs then??

Well, Kahli sent me the fatpack which comes with the above mention HUD. I attached it, clicked the colour-buttons for each texture…nada happened. I attached it once again, again nothing. Hmm. Of course i paid NO attention to  the little  blood/dirt icons. Nope. Instead, I IMed Kahli and pointed out the HUD doesn’t work.

Minutes later, I browse blogs and stumble upon Imogen’s, she blogged the outfit as well! And for SOME reason, it worked for her. Hmmm. So, I try it again, and again nothing. I try to move the HUD, click randomly…and tadaaa. The texture changes. It dawns on me then! the little icons are the one I have to use. Taddda!!! Everything works. I send Kahli another IM telling her that I am an idiot and please to ignore all else. We chat some and I am about to ask where the clean version of the tunic is. Just when I am about to type, Kahli tells me “Oh yeah, the soap icon…bla bla bla.” I delete my message quickly. Soap Icon? I re-attach the HUD for what feel sthe 1000th time today. Oh. Soap icon!! That isn’t some little goldbar with their logo, that’s soap! Dumdidum…

Ever been blushing really hard in rl? LOL. I hate HUDs, even if they are super helpful. :)

Here is my today’s outfit.

I am still fiddling around on my homeparcel. I need to find some new grass, not too fond anymore of mine from We’re Closed after they were busted as people who use templates from sites that don’t even allow it. Meh. :/

Collabor88’s 2nd B-DAY and lots of new releases!!! :)

Heya people!

Collabor 88 started into a new round and while the theme (1920s I think) isn’t exactly my style I still spent quite a bit of money there. Not only that, but also Collabor 88 is celebrating its 2nd birthday and this roudn there is twice as many creators (or even more???) than during normal rounds. I was very happy when I finally got in. I am in love, love, love with Ingenue’s and Fri.days addons of SLINK feet! Seriously, addons for those meshfeet are the new way to go imho. They just look so much better than tinted feet or even default feet! Also, I noted more items at lower prices there again which made me very happy.

The hair!

I am especially in love with this hair by Lamb Bellic. Usually, their hair always looks a bit odd on me, I am not sure if it is their headshape that is weird or mine though! :P This one is really cute though. I love the soft look and the headpiece it comes with. SO glad it fits with my ears, too! Phew!

The tunic!

The tunic is offered at C88 by House of Fox and I really like it. It looks super silky indeed, just as its name implies and its well over many long skirts I have in my inventory (if you wear them in S/XS, that is).  So imho, it is ideal for mixing and matching outfits. :)

The armor!

The armor in the picture (besides the upper arms) is the new Siren’s Call armor by Jalilah Jewell for GSpot. Jalilah seriously has improved so much by now and her handmade mesh is getting better and better. I love the intricate designs on this one and I love that you can select faces and tint them separately, which I did! I think it is a wonderful way to allow your customers to customize their items a little.

I just now realized the upper arm cuff is cutting a little into my arm. Ugh. It is 1.30 am and I am damned tired, so my apologies here. :(

Happy Mood has always been one of my favorite sims for pictures, it is just sooo pretty. If you ever know of any foresty/fantasy/generally pretty sims that might work for pictures, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an LM! I prefer sims with grass/groundcover!

WE LOVE ROLE-PLAY – Part I

Heya peeps!

WE LOVE RP starts tomorrow with its FOURTH round already and, if I counted correctly, 49 participants. I am so, so, so excited because there is SO much good stuff this round. Look what we have here!

The skin!

Nina Helix of Alchemy/Birdy has outdone herself for this round. She -always comes up with items that show a LOT of effort which makes me really, really happy because it shows she values our event AND the customers as well. This round, she presents us a FULL release: The Eladie skin, a very pretty, ethereal looking skin with THIN brows. Yes, you read it correctly. THIN brows. For all you girls out there who love her skins for Birdy and Alchemy but could never get to fit her brows? This is your chance. I am so, so happy. The skin comes with…yes…you read this right..SEVEN eyebrow options (the usual ones AND pastels) PLUS a bare option. It also comes with the necessary skin-appliers, mesh elven ears and is offered in EIGHT tones. And the best thing is? For WE LOVE RP she has set the price to 50 % OFF!

Seriously? That is crazy generous and awesome for a full new release of skin of this quality. I think once I am got a bit of breathing time (after the event starts) I will try to do a full review this skin.

The dress!

The Library is offering us an incredibly pretty new dress named Margaery and if anything, they managed to visualize that characters look – pretty and somewhat sophisitcated- very well. I love the color choices as well as the textures. A job well done! I am very happy with this dress, too, because you can wear the vest separably from the rest and combine it with other outfits, which I will most likely do. :) :)

The armor!

The armorpieces are part of a WHOLE outfit by The Muses, which will be offered not only in the seen black/red combination, but a more streamlined version as well. Dolce really, really has shown so much creativity with this outfit as well as an eye for detail and realism. I love, love, love the fact that more and more designers now realize that we girls do not ONLY need pretty skirts, dresses and silks. THANK YOU, Dolce! The textures on the whole outfit, with comes with meshpants that have NO ponyrider appeal plus an dawesome tunic, are incredibly rich and detailed. But more about that tomorrow!

Here is my outfit. :)
