Stand and take the fight! – Truth, Tableau Vivant, Ison, FatePlay and so much more!

Hey guys,

I have been slow, I know. :/ Lately, I have kind of been missing my usual drive, probably because now that my dreams of a D&D sim are located int he far future again, I have felt less compelled to role-play or do anything at all on SL. But, there is new stuff to be had and it is quite awesome. Collabor88 recently opened and so did The Seasons Story. Unfortunately, the latter onyl allows a small number of avis on sim which made it really hard for me to get in, or maybe I was just incredibly unlucky. :D Who knows! This time around, I also varied the outfit a little from picture to picture. :)

There are new hairs by Truth, Tableau Vivant and Clawtooth, all of them available at Collabor88! :)

The cardigan!

This cardigan by Chronokit (Kit Pizzicato) is actually an older item, however I love it! It is just plain enough to work well for medieval gear and the way the item is designed allows for us corset friends to put in on display. :D We all know how hard it is to find tops that go with underbust corsets. :) The cardigan isn’t super cheap with 300L but affordable enough and I like botht he textures and the mesh on this one. :) However, I would have expected more than three sizes to be honest. I thought 5-7 sizes is pretty much standard now. Still, Chronokit’s quality really allows for some minor letdowns like that. :)

The cloak!

The cloak is part of the Dani outfit by FatePlay (Damien Fate) for WE LOVE RP! I am a total sucker for cloaks and stuff like that. Capes, cloaks…they can pimp an outfit so, so much! I enjoy the style of this cape (cloak?) a lot because it isn’t so terribly, unrealistically summetrical like so many other cloaks. Very nice job there! I do think a few little details would have veen nice, like for example a clasp at the throat or a somewhat woolier texture on the inner side. However, this is a GREAT addon for many, many outfits. :)

Blog360PS_44

The skirt!

Whenever Harry Hyx releases something new for Ison, I squee. Not only because I like his general style and often times his stuff can be used in rp, but also he prices them so very reasonably and because his choices of textures and colours are always next to perfect. In this case, he scored twice with me: I LOVE long skirts, but I HATE it that so many longer skirts cover up everything, even the feet. This is PERFECT though, you cna show off your awesome shoes, too, while still not wearing a too short skirt. :) Very happy, and love the silky, pleated look of it! Also, I noticed this skirt fits with most of my corsets! :D It has a belt that can be hidden and once that is done, it fits. :) Oh, and it is available at Collabor88!

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!

I have traveled land and sea – Hairs!! Hairs!! The Arcade! :)

Hiya peeps!

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

The hair!

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!

Blog343PS_1

So many hairs! :D

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. :)

Give me A Chance- News from Papermoon, Aisling, The Plastik and more. :D

Hiya peeps!

I took some more advices for photoshop this time around, and while I think these are decent, I am still not convinced. God, I hate that programm right now. :P

But, lets have a look at what I am wearing. :)

The flowers!

There’s a myriad of headpieces and wreaths around and few manage to stick out anymore I think. It’s been terribly overdone, everyone and their grandma are making headpieces now. Sometimes though, there is a gem that stick out. :) When I saw these in the preview package provided by Sohma Dix of Papermoon for the new round of the Genre Event, I rolled my eyes at first, but when I tried them on, I loved them. I absolutely enjoy the pretty colours and textures on these as well as the level of detail that you can clearly see in the picture. Little thorns, tiny petals, buds and fully blossomed parts! Really liking this one and the colourchoices are nice as well. :)

Blog339PS_3

The top!

Aikea Rieko of The Plastik released these tops just now and I looooove them. They are perfectly to combine them with high fitting skirts, waistbelts or really for any kind of barbarian/native looking outfit. The texture is just the right mix of leathery and fancy, though I do wish the boobs wouldn’t have the smooth leather texture but the rough one, too. But still, this top makes a great additions for your mix and matched outfits and it really, really easily fits with many other things such as vests, boleros etc. It also comes in a ton of texture variations!

Blog339PS_5

The collar (large)!

The collar is part of a two piece jewelry set provided by Aisling for the new round of Genre. Druunah certainly has a thing for awesome designs and while this can be worn as a much smaller piece, too, I prefer it this big, looking a bit like a harness. It extends onto the shoulders and has a rather elaborate part on the neck as well. The set comes with a matching crown and it is available in both gold and silver. I really enjoy this design. :) I just wish the metal texture on the dark parts was a little more visible. I also like that you can resize each axis individually. Once again another pretty addition to my already large folder of Aisling stuff. :D

My heart continues to beat – News from Truth, Lode, Mad Pea and more! :D

Hiya peeps. :)

I found some really cute things the past days. :D So, lets have a look! Truth released new hair! I love the two styles displayed, especially Tyr, because it looks really different from his usual styles. :)

The little dude!

That little guy with the hilarious face on Arica’s shoulder is a Cupid by MadPea, designed by Jaimy Hancroft. The lil guy flutters around and generally looks incredibly cute. I loved him. He is part of a gacha at the Mieville Midway Event which I wouldn’t have heard of if I didn’t happen to know one or two people involved. I really wish they would advertise more, but it was a chore to find any LM. :( There’s a couple of gems there after all! The Cupid Gacha is at the Mad Pea stand and only is 50L per play and the little Cupids are the common items. Super cute faces and general look. :D

Blog338PS_1

The headpiece!

Chirzaka Vlodovic released this pretty headpiece for L’accessories. It is part of a gacha and a common item. I do think the price of 75L per play is a little steep, however, the fact that none of the available colours failed to appeal to me made me play it regardless. :) The presented color is called earth and imho matches a winter or autumn theme very well. I enjoy the texture on the berries a lot as well as the leaves. I do wish the petals would have been a little more natural looking, but overall, I really like this headpiece and given you’ll get a good coloration with each play (at least imho), the price is okay as well.

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

You may not forget – News from COCO Designs, GIZZA, GSPOT and more! :)

Heya peeps,

you know that feeling when just NOTHING seems to work out? Today is one of those days it seems. Grumble. I wanted to post yesterday already but fell asleep at my desk. moving sucks big time, I tell you. Tomorrow we are going to go to IKEA for the third time in a row, probably another six hours of furniture shopping. Ugh. Sorry for ranting, but these past days were stressfull, I think I feel every tiny little muscle aching. Also, bad blogging day. I took a gazillion of pictures today and couldn’t get myself to love any of them. Not sure why. :(

So, now lets have a look at what I put together, which is more than likely the more interesting part for you guys. :P

Blog278PS

The wreath!

Well, I am feeling a little stupid repeating that Jalilah Jewell of GSpot constantly improved her meshwork and still does so. This headpiece is a preview for the upcoming round of WE LOVE RP, starting on November 4th. While Jalilah is a friend of mine, I am honest with her when she aks me for my opinion and honest with my reviews. Also, I wouldn’t blog her stuff if it wasn’t really good, friend or not. Despite it all, it still makes me feel weird at times, because I always fear I might be too biased, so I am always looking extra closely at her items. The same goes for any person I like or call a friend. I don’t want to give anyone a greencard here so instead of being super lenient, i TRY to be extra nitpicky.

This headpiece imho is another proof of Jalilah’s attention to details which is, imho, so super important if you create accessories. Did you notice those little white dots at the bottom of each leaf? I love them. It comes in various colours (cream, autumn, silver, violet) and has matching bracers (not shown). I really do enjoy the texture on the little leaves, all the colour variations do look really pretty. My personal favs are the one displayed (autumn) and the violet ones because I personally do enjoy stronger colours for autumn. :) I noticed the wreath was a little hard to resize. Not because resizing is hard, but because it has a very round shape and rarely a head is that round,s o when you make it look too oval, the leaves get distorted a little bit. Also, it is not symmetric, which makes the task a little confusing, too, but at the same time adds big time to realism. :) However, this one is one of my current favourite headpieces out there and that speaks volumes, given there are a MYRIAD of these. Another bonus in my book is that Jalilah’s gold tones are to my liking. Many times, the golden textures of designers have a too yellowish or greenish tone rather than a warm gold which I prefer.

The (grey!) vest!

Giz Seorn, designer for Gizza, released this vest the other day and I literally camped his store after he told me he was about to release it….then fell asleep. I love the knit texture, it looks truly thick and wooly, just perfect for autumn and winter. The vest is really nice for layering meshpieces as well, though I DO wish sometimes designers in general would be more considerate when it comes to the shape of the bottoms of their tops. It would be so cool if the tops where just a little more flares so pants and skirts would fit more easily underneath. But I guess with ruffles that is even harder and these are really cute, too!  The vest comes in several autumn colours and realyl is a great addition to your basics. :)

The boots!

First of all, I really like these boots by Cocoro Lemon for Coco Designs a lot! The texture looks like a soft suede and the colours offered are all very pretty, most of them natural looking. The price of (I think) 350 Lindens seems okay given that the boots come with and without an attached jeans. Very considerate of the designer imho! I alos do like the natural look of the wrinkled on the shaft and the mere hint of a heel there (a wedge to be exact). Also, no zippers, which is a big plus in my book. However, if you look at the picture below, I am sure you can spot what may be bothering me about these? Riiiiight. The inside of the boots is unlined which makes the invisible. You can see it clearly in my picture. I think that’s really a bit sad because unless you cam into a certain perspective, you’ll almost always see that. Plus: IF you offer a version without the jeans (the version with the jeans does not need the lining on the inside), the effort should be put into this item to make it equally valuable without the pants sticking in the boot. I still like them, I admit it. I may just trry to find a solution for this, but I really wish designers would line the inner sides of items as well, at least to a certain extend, so that while you move around in normal positions, no invisibility is to be seen. :)Blog278PS_3

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. :)

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.

I saw a house in the forest and thought you were there – New releases by MV, Pale Empress, Junbug and more!

Heya peeps!

As I already mentioned in another post, A Clockwork Spiral has started and there are many, many neat things to be had there, especially suitable for role-play. Even thought it is a steampunkish theme, I still think any role-player might just be able to find something there. :)

The tunic!

The tunic is offered as part of a whole outfit by a store called MV by Lokii Violet at A Clockwork Spiral. I think it is a template, but look at this awesome colour and the cute texturing. :) I think it makes a perfect addition for any kind of huntsman outfit. Funny enough, I was hanging with Tera Varriale earlier and she wore this evil, black dress witha  crown. We looked like a Snowwhite and the Huntsman cast for sure. Back to the tunic! I really like how it’s cut, the flared ruffles make it easy to layer it with skirts or pants. However I noticed the alpha does not fit at all. I had to add additional sleeves and a corset layer to make my lovehandles and elbows disappear. This needs some work! But I am very pleased with the overall appearance. :)

The pants!

Nicely fitting pants are a rare find on SL, especially for chicks. Most give you a horrible ponyrider look and have skinny legs. These pants by Pale Empress, another store by Dolce Blackflag, at A Clockwork Spiral, are an exception to this rule. Dolce already proved with her Penghel Armor for The Muses that she makes awesome pants. I love the texture on these, it looks like thick, heavy leather! And no skinny, awkward legs. These pants come as a part of a whole outfit (shoes and a cloak not displayed) which is well worth its Lindens. :) I only noticed one thing: If you look at the back of these pants, the folds on the lower legs make these seem unaturally thick compared to the rest. But I suppose that can be blamed on the cut indeed. :)

The muffler!

Juno Mantel of Junbug (I couldn’t find the current LM) is making her own mesh by now and constantly improves. I think this muffler is really, really cute. It fits the shoulders well and barely needs adjustments. I love the lacings. I am a sucker for lacings in general. :) The fur-texture looks very cute and soft indeed. Very cuddly! I think these will make a nice addition for many autumn-outfits. :) I also like that they are not too huge, so you can still add necklaces etc.
