All ends are beginnings – News from Truth, Little Bones, Quality Designs and more!

Hi peeps!

I promised I’d blog earlier this time and here I am. :P I wanted to put together something really autumn-y for this one. I hope you like it! I really LOVE this new hair by Truth, I think it is one of the best styles in some time and it comes in two variations: The one shown below and one that has two cute little buns on the right side (viewer’s perspective). Love iiiit. :) Don’t forget to check out the other two releases too!

Also, if any designer reads this, here is a role-player’s plea: Please make MORE rustic, FLAT boots (high shafts/oveknee/thigh high!!) with no zippers and MORE legwarmers with no boots attached for us. Please? :D Please? I promise we really need and buy them!

But, lets see what my avi is wearing in these pics! :)

The hair!

This is a new(ish) style by Little Bones (Nova Faerye) called Nightingale. Usually, I always had issues with Little Bones’ hairshapes, they used to look quite flat on me. I am not sure whether she changed these or if I just got luckier recently (I didn’t change my head’s shape!), but I bought this one and another style yesterday and I like them both a lot. If you look at the demos and vendor pictures in her store, you will notice that her hairs have improved a lot over the past months and have gotten a lot more detailed (thinner, more natural looking strands for example). Back in the days, her hairs usually had very strongly visible roots too which now look a lot more natural imho. I like these textures a lot, especially the highlights. I am not a fan of terribly dry looking textures and these are just well balanced.

A colourpackage costs 270 Lindens which is a tiny bit more than the usually average price I seem to see everywhere (250 L). The hair comes in two sizes (L basically being the version for big boobies) and each package contains eleven tones so that’s really a nice deal. I very much enjoy both the reds and the blondes. The blondes range from very pale, platinum blondes to slightly reddish, darker tones, so there’s something for everyone in there, imho. I do like the streaks option: The front part of this hair can be textured differently via the streaks option on the HUD and thus give it a more vivid look.

What I do miss is an essentials/basics pack with one to two variations of each colours included. At first I thought the ‘landslide pack’ was precisely this, but looking closely at the texture preview on the prim, it seems to be a certain variation of fading tones and such. Not sure, there was no demo of each HUD included so I cannot really tell. I really think preview HUDS should generally be included in demos, even though it is probably a huge hassle to make those, but they are important for an impression of how a colour/ombre/style might look. Also, I really wish not only the front part could have the streaks applied, but the entire hair. Still, among the top five of my current fav hairs!

The top!

The top I am wearing is a newer release by Quality Designs (Jessie Auer) upon which I just recently stumbled after checking out their store after ages again. I never used to be terribly much impressed with their releases for girls (mostly dresses) but this small top caught my eyes almost instantly: First of all, it’s leather. Second, it has laces, and third, it works well with corsets. YAY! It was pretty cheap too! So all these were valid arguments for me to buy it without even checking for a demo. :P And I really quite like it. The laces are awesome and I really enjoy the rough look of it. The lower part is wide enough to make it fit over most corsets and it’s rustic, rough leather look makes it viable for a TON of various outfits for various characters. A great item for mixing and matching. However! I really do wish the buttons weren’t texture only but actually meshes, too, that would have been insanely neat. Still though, totally an item I personally will wear a lot.

I love you madly! – News from Entwined, Swagga and the Mystic Realms Faire!! :)

Hi peeps,

time for another post. I am really tired already but I thought I better get this one out. :D This time, I also wanted to provide a bit for the guys, so theres a dude too. :P And of course, Wurfel is hanging out with us as well. Need I mention that the new hairs by Tableau Vivant in this post will probably end up in my folder of Alltime Favourites? :D

Lets see what they are wearing!

The hair!

In my last post about an outfit I mentioned a new hair store named Entwined by VivienMarli Resident and told you guys I’d blog them too. So here we go! The style I am wearing is called Neva and I am happy to say, I am very positively impressed. :) The price of one package is 250L which is pretty normal. Each colour package contains five different tones. I am a fan of both the reds and the blondes even though I wish there was an actual deep, blood red available too. Then again, I nowadays care more for the blondes and these tones are really, really well chosen imho. I do hope they will be adding essential/basic packs with a  selection of each haircolour at one point! Imho, the mesh is smooth and the textures very pretty, just the right amount of glossy without looking too wet. :D I am definitely a fan and will keep my eyes on this store, and I hope in the near future we will see more from them and maybe some essential packs too?! :D

The tunic (on him)!

Men always complain that there are no cool items for them and I always, always disagree. I am of the firm belief that there may be an abundance of dresses and things alike for girls, but when it comes to badass looking outfits (and not gowns of all kinds and forms) we are absolutely underserved (is that a word?!). Look at this super cool tunic by Swagga (Sh0rtie Resident) for guys! I haven’t spotted anything alike for girls yet. The textures are nicely done and I really like the small details such as the straps in front of the chest and the pouch. I do think the metal parts may be a a -tad- too shiny, but overall I really think this tunic (it comes with those pretty cool bracers, pants and boots btw!) is a nice addition for a lot of outfits. I checked if it fits with several different meshpants commonly worn and it does! If I was a guy, I most certainly would pick this one up, especially since the whole outfit is only 299 Lindens at the Mystic Realms Faire!! :)

No doubts remaining – Mystic Realms Faire Previews! News from Tableau Vivant!

Hey peeps,

finally a new blogpost that isn’t a LONG list of previews but an actual outfit put together. :) The Mystic Realms Faire is approaching fast (starting October 10th!!) and there have been immense amounts of work still waiting for us the past days, so that’s really where I have been spending most of my time. I am extremely happy that the designers came up with so many super awesome items for this event and have put so much effort into it. So far, the feedback has been good (from those already able to access), but I am still terribly nervous for when it opens.

Aside from that, more exciting things happened: Tableau Vivant released the new hairs with the new textures which I mentioned in an earlier post and a new hair store, Entwined, opened its doors. I will soon be showing their items here. :)

The hair!

So, here it is: One of the new hairs released by Tableau Vivant. I know M4ri1yn Magic put a giant amount of work into this (I am sure Aida helped too! ^^) and he actually asked various people for honest feedback…-and- managed to implement the suggestions. The new textures are gorgeous. Slightly shinier and a bit more highlighted than the old ones, and I personally like that a LOT. I am a fan of not too dry looking hair in SL.  I also noticed that M4ri1yn managed to refined and smooth out his styles even more. The hair comes in eleven different colourpackages: The usual hairtones, plus a package containing the basic tones, dip dyes, pastels and various other, funkier colours. Each pack contains 30 (!!!!) different tones/streak variations and costs 250 Lindens. That is one HELL of a deal. The selection of colours in both the red and blondes packages seem to be very balanced so I dare say there is something in there for everyone. I am really, really happy how these turned out! Totally a step up once again. And don’t forget to pick up the new groupgift!!

The dress!

I was super duper curious to see what Cerberus Noel of GField would come up with for the Mystic Realms Faire since his store isn’t technically a fantasy one. And I had high hopes for sure…and they haven’t been disappointed one bit. This dress is SO damn awesome for combining it (or even wearing it alone, gasp!) with pants or other items, I immediately fell in love. I adore the textures and color variations (four to be precise) he is offering. The belt is hidden underneath the additional weapons-belt that I added, but it adds a very nice detail to this dress. The only small downside I can think of is that I wish the outfit was available in separate pieces too.The whole outfit costs 300L and is solely available at the Mystic Realms Faire for now. I am a fan, and maybe, if we can convince him that we role-players are shoppers too, he will make more for us? :)

The wolf!

See who’s there by my side? May I present you: Wurfel. Wurfel is my new companion pet by Alchemy (Nina Helix/Tyr Rozenblum) and you will soon be able to buy Wurfel’s friends for 450 Lindens at the Mystic Realms Faire. When I saw Wurfel and his friends sitting in the store, I couldn’t resist. His smooth fur and fluent movements are just too cute! And look at those eyes, they seem to say: Buy me! Buy me! Wurfel and his friends come in 6 colours and each one is pretty! It was pure luck for Wurfel that I chose him to be honest, because I couldn’t decide and thus bought blindly. He is very cuddly, barely lags that I noticed and moves by your side. He is terribly cute when he wags his tail, and be glad: He does NOT howl or bark the entire time. You can even cause a small miracle: He can grow and shrink! So, please drop by and give Wurfel’s friends a home too! They all deserve one!

I know what my heart believes – News from Kik, Exxess and more!

Hi guys!

The Mystic Realms Faire is coming soon and we are in the middle of the preparations. It’s gonna be nice I think. :) You definitely need to check out the line up! :D A TOn of truly amazing designers are participating in this event, so don’t miss out!

But lets see what I am wearing! Today I tried to go for a more down to earth look, something I can actually see being worn instead of some extravagant stuff. :)

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is a relatively new (or just a new?) release by Kik (as001 Littlething) and I think it is a really, really cute style. You can choose from three different blonde packages of which I chose the brightest one: White Blondes. I really enjoy the warmer tone of this blonde, though I wish the dark part on top of the head should have been a bit brighter to make it look more natural. I really like her textures a lot and the two strands at the front a very pretty. However, I did notice that the mesh seems oddly frazzled towards the end of each strand. I had my LOD, antialiasing etc. all the way up, so I asked around and apparently it is simply how the mesh is done. I think it takes away a bit from the perfection of this style, because the ends look so jagged. I really hope Kik will make slimmer, smoother strands because her styles are really, really sweet. :)

Blog396PS

The other hair!

Exxess by Layja Vidor is a store that fell from my radar for a long, long time. I only recently stumbled upon it again and I must say, I am positively surprised and impressed. I tried several styles and noticed pretty, smooth looking meshes, a lot of VERY long styles and a lot of attention to detail. A lot of their hairs are pretty unique looking as well. One colour palette costs 269 Lindens and includes 10 tones, of which each tone comes in an ombre version as well. That is, in my book, a pretty good deal. The HUD is very easy to handle. I treally, really enjoy the textures as well. Unfortunately, whiile trying the blondes, I noticed a lot of them are a tad to grey-touched for my personal taste and also seem darker than the colour preview on the HUD suggest. Also, there don’t seem to be any boobie-versions included. But I still very much like these hairs a LOT and for all the updos and ponytails you don’t need the boobie-versiosn anyways. :)

You never said a word! – News from Spellbound, Coquet and more. :D

Hi peeps!

So happy that it’s weekend, finally found some time for blogging again. I really, really like this outfit, one of my favourite ones for everyday characters in a while now. :) Lets see what I’m wearing in SecondLife. :D

The hair!

Spellbound by Kohana Xue is a store that made it quickly into pretty much every important event out there, and rightfully so! Her styles are unique, her texturework is really pretty and I enjoy her smooth meshes. :D This style is called Bubsy and available at her mainstore. Usually, I really, really dislike straight bangs on almost every hairstyle around, but sometimes, designers convince me that they can pull them off: Truth did it recently and now Kohana does the same! I do like these, especially the longer strands that go down to your cheeks on each side of the face. Plus, look at the ears! This is a perfect style to show off your mesh-ears, especially elven ones. ;D Bubsy comes with a separate scarf and in three sizes plus a version for flatchested girls. Each colour pack contains nine tones that come in two variations: with and without roots. For 250 Lindens that is quite the deal. :D I also like that the red package contains both gingers and actual reds! :D

Blog386_PS1

The skirt!

This skirt by Coquet (Tabitha Marquez) is being sold at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative and is technically a mainstream item. It comes in various denim colours, though I think the black one totally works and can pass as simple linen. :P The price is 199 Lindens and the skirt comes in the usual five sizes. I really think the cut of this skirt is made by a genius, because it does give this piece a bit of a makeshift/selfmade look. I like it! It’s not too short either if combined well with other items. :D I only wish it came in different, non-denim textures too! Another good thing is, that despite the inseparable belt, the top of the skirt is slim enough to combine it with a lot of different tops. :)

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. :)

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. :)
