One is the loneliest number – News from Collabor88, Tales of Fantasy, Tableau Vivant and more!

Hiya peeps!

Collabor88 opened its doors and there is quiiiite a few neat items to be had. Tales of Fantasy is open now as well and there is a LOT of cute stuff to be had. :) This blog will show you some cute hairs as well as two other items from there. :)
Lets have a look!

The headpiece!

Aymee Monk of Keystone really, really has come a long way by now. This head accessory is called Corva and is a new release for WE LOVE RP and currently available at 25% discount. :) The package costs only 180 Lindens and contains EIGHT different texture versions of which I like the golden and copper ones best. Aymee really has a knack for pretty tiaras, crowns and the likes. Also, I do like her metal textures a lot, the constant improvement of her skills is very visible.  This so far is one of my favourite items by her because it offers so much variety and really has a pretty, unique shape. There is certainly a ton of these things out there by now but one can still spot a Keystone rigth away. I only hope she will soon make more items that maybe have some gemstones or pearls implemented, too. :)

The hair!

The hair on the picture above is a new release by Tableau Vivant (M4ri1yn Magic) for Collabor88. It’s a very unique style. There are a lot of pigtails for sure, but most are either braids or poofy ones. I cannot recall any up to date mesh hairs that have a similar style but I may be mistaken. It comes in three sizes: Normal, a version for boobs and a version for larger heads. As per usual, the meshwork is really smooth and the style is super cute. However, do wish the normal version (which I am wearing) would fit better for smaller boobs. I think to fill out the curve of this hair I’d have to increase my boobies by 30% at least. It looks a bit as if it floats this way, but honestly, I still like it,e specially because it is so unique. :)

The skirt!

The skirt my avi is wearing in these pictures is a new item provided by Tee*fy by Azure Electricteeth for Collabor88! I LOVE it, because I have been searching my bum off for anything that resembles a high-low-skirt.  I love to see legs, yet I cannot see anyone wearing a miniskirt in medieval times, and fighting in a long skirt just seems..uncomfortable at best. These kinds of skirts let your legs move freely without looking too modern! The skirt has just the right length and the the right height on the hips. However, I do wish that the edge on the hips would be a little smoother/tighter. For some reason, even a size XS (and Mari usually wears M/S) still doesn’t cling very neatly to the body, but that can be hidden easily with a belt! Compliments for the alphalayer, too! It is one of the few skirt sof this kind that have a good alphalayer. Most alphas blow but in this case, it seemed to fit perfectly well. Also a fan of the textures and colours this skirt comes in! :) Definitely a must have for my wardrobe.

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.

The Red Wizard – Horrorfest started! News from Birdy, The Forge, Adored, Keystone and more!!! :)

Heya guys!

Horrorfest started and I found quite a few things that I really liked. I am sorry there were no previews, but I forgot to apply as a blogger in time. Very witty of me. But there are lots of awesome things to be had, so take a look and grab some of these goodies. :)

The skin!

Nina Helix, owner of Birdy and Alchemy, makes awesome stuff. It is known. Not only does she make fabulous houses (at We LOVE RP) and super cute little owlets (see my right shoulder!) but she is mostly known for her skins. The skin I am wearing is called Amber and I am wearing it in the bare version (with a make up layer) and red brows. Her skins are known for very delicate features, a very distinct glow and slightly stronger highlights. Apparently, it has come to the attention of other skindesigners that her way of highlighting is very popular, because I see more and more similarly highlighted skins popping up. :) I am in love with the lips on this skin, they are really soft and natural looking. Kissable!

Also, big plus from my side for the THINNER brows. Most of her skins have thick, really thick, brows, which make them unuseable for me personally, no matter how much I love the rest of the skin (elves and facial hair…). I like the nose on this skin, unlike with other skins from Birdy, I didn’t have to adjust my nose for this one.

One thing that I told Nina and I know she will be working to irmpove this is a better blending of face and neck, but other than that, I find it very hard to find anything about her skins that I could criticize from an objective point of view. Even if her skins often do not fit my avatar I can fully appreciate her very well drawn and unique faces which enable her customers to spot her skins right away on any avatar. This skin is available at the Wizarding Faire until TOMORROW! :D So go grab it!!

The necklace!

The necklace is an item you can buy at the Horrorfest and is provided by Deccan Arida for The Forge. It is one of his ultra rare gacha items. LOOK at those texture and the crazy tiny details Deccan managed to combine there! I am always amazed how much he continues to improve and I am very glad that he, along with his friend Jalilah Jewell of GSpot, got invited to Horrorfest. :)They certainly both deserve it. The small details on this necklace combined with the truly prettytextures speak for themselves I believe. Look at all those tiny little metal-curls and swirls and how pretty the wings truly turned out. Often times gem-textures look really bland imho, but in this case I very much like it. Given the fact that his common items are just as carefully made and also pretty, I’d give this gacha try! Or some more than one. ;)

I brought you butterflies on a pretty string – New from Magika and a dress by Schadenfreude!

Heya peeps!

I was tinkering for quite a while with this until I was happy with the outfit but now I am in love! I went for a very girly look this time with no weapons. :)

The hair!

Sabina Gully has released new hairs for Magika! First, a friend said they weren’t as nicely done as her usual ones, but when she saw them on me she had to agree her styles are, once again, really cute! I love, love, love Magika#s hair. It comes in several sizes and the colourpacks are just SO very generous! You get a whole bunch of natural colours (basically a giant essentials pack) for only 250 Lindens, and they are tintable with a HUD, too. I have heard from many people that supposedly Magika hair is laggy. I cannot confirm that really, at least I never lagged any more with it than with any other hair on my head! Maybe I am just lucky, but her hair always seems to fit my head’s shape really well. This one is a really soft, low ponytail, much how I wear my hair in rl often when I am lazy. :) I love it! I think it looks very realistic and natural, plus: I really do like the many choices for red tones. :)

Blog263PS_2

The dress!

Schadenfreude is a brand by Allegory Malaprop who is very wellknown for her rather quirky styles and colorful designs. Her store is a huge elephant! Now I have to say I am really a noob and lack any sort of orientation. I always wondered where she had hidden all her items, since the elephant is -relatively- small and only contain a few newer items. Of course I failed to notice the roadsigns with the teleports…taddaaa! I went down and stumbled upon the Eala Dress which I recalled from Collabor 88 where I had forgotten to purchase it. It comes in a myriad of colours to pick from and costs 400 Lindens. That is a little pricey, but the quality you get is well worth it. I am personally really, really into this style. It had a big bow just above the butt and lacings that go up the back, which are tintable with a HUD. The whole design is very feminine and unique. I have not seen a dress like this thus far. I’ll make sure to show a picture of this dress from behind at one point, too! You really, really should check it out.

But I am just so tired to share my life. – Collabor 88 for Role-Play! :D

Heya peeps!

So, I made it to Collabor88 pretty quickly but the past days have been rather busy for me. :) But I was pretty damn happy with this round, all those autumn-colors are just riiight up my alley. :)

The hair!

The hair is Kumii Yoshikawa’s (Eaters Coma) latest release. I often was unhappy in the past because her hairs used to be no mod and the reds aren’t really reds, more like..auburns? I am not exactly sure. But they are mod nowadays, which makes it a lot more easy! I got the Mauve package and tinted the Mauve Light color a little towards red. I love, love the gentle curls. I think ever since Truth’s candy got so damn popular many creators figured it is worth a shot to make gentle waves. I love this style. As per usual it comes in trhee sizes and for 250L you get three different tones in one package. I only wish the textures were a little less dry looking. But I guess those textures are really popular lately, I noticed the dry look on a lot of hairs.

Blog255PS_3

The cape!

Marie Lauridsen of Milk Motion released this suuuuuper cute cape for Collabor 88. It come sin several colors and, most important, it come sin two variants: one with an animation that locks your arms in place, which I prefer, and one without said animation. I think that is really considerate, given without the animations the arms will poke through like hell. I am very much in love with it because it perfectly fits that ranger look I tried to achieve for this one. :) The texture is very welldone as well and I just love how naturally it falls. It is damned hard to find a good cape that is rigged mesh!!

The boots!

Yes, you caught me. I am trying to hide it, but I am wearing boots with actual heels in these pictures. I never do that. But with Harry Hyx’ release for ISON at Collabor88 my resistance was over. First of all, I love this brown and the soft leathertexture. Also, overknees. And that STRAP on the back!!! I just love these, especially for the price of 188 Lindens. I found Ison a long time ago and it was amazing tos ee this creator evolve over time. I think these boots are impeccably done. :)

LOVE DONNA FLORA! – PART I

Heya peeps!

Three days left until LOVE DONNA FLORA! starts. I am really excited about this event, not ONLY because it supports a good cause, but also because a lot of designers have signed up that I personally like. Yes, I like modern clothes as well and usually will run around in ‘OOC clothes’ when not in rp sim or not too lazy to change. :)

So, here is my first outfit using items from the upcoming event. :) I am not sure how good this pics are yet, not quite used to modern fashionshots! :D I am always open for suggestion, so feel free to give me hints. :)

I am not usually a huge fan of Lamb’s hair because it never seems to fit my head quite right (which is obviously not their fault) and I often think thestyles look a bit too sleek for my taste. This one however seemed really cute and I especially like this red tone, despite its name (Ugly Red), haha. :)

Lark by Sienia Trevellion has some really, really cute items up for Donna Flora. Not only the clothes displayed, but also a very cute set of saltshakers. Love them!

For some reason I have started to LOVE pastel tones. I am not sure how well they go with my red hair, but you know what? I don’t want to change it. :( So even if red/pink could be a bit odd, I quite like it. What do you think?

Modern Elfy Times!!! :)

Hello peeps,

so, I guess I owe an explanation (or not?) as to why I am have been sooo slow with everything lately. I keep telling myself that I’ll have the time to blog more…but then I figure: NOpe, again no time. I am currently in a trainee programm for teachers and it basically eats up my time. I got my final exams in less than three weeks and well…I better not procrastinate. So until the 4th of March, I will probably not be blogging again after this post.

Today, I wanted to show you gyus an outfit I made for a casual OOC elf a s well as some of my favourite hairs that more or less recently have been released.

Here is my outfit. Forgive the not so cool picture, I tried to figure out how to get shadows to work properly. Oh well…skillfull me isn’t all that skilled yet. :)

Here come my six current favourite hairstyles, in no particular order:
Blog184PS_1

Both Magika hairs are just flawless. I love, love their system where you can buy the whole scale of natural colours (brunette, red, black, blondes) for only 250 Lindens. The textures and meshwork is awesome, and each hair comes in three sizes. Magika has improved so, so much over the years. Imho, Sabiny Gully is currently one of the best hairmakers out there. These hairs fall in a natural manner and are really long as they reach down to the lower back. I am in love with these. Also I think her haircolours look very nice and natural, even if I picked a not so natural red right now.

The LeLutka hair is very nice as well, the soft waves giving it a very innocent look. I love the fact that you can turn the hair accessory on or off. I have to unfortunately turn it off because it clips into my elven ears. :( But even without it, this hair looks really nice. Her haircolours and textures are very, very good as well. I really can rarely complain, unless she is making one of her strange hairstyles again for which you’d need a bottle of hairspray to have them stay that way. But oh well, this one is awesome! It also fits me quite perfectly, even without the alpha layer.

Blog184PS_2

And here comes Eaters Coma. Kumii Yoshikawa always already amazed us with her really pretty styles that she made for SIXTYNINE. The style ‘ME’ was one of the favs I’d say, and I saw so, so many chicks with it. Guess what? Now she has redone it in mesh, and while I like Burley’s remake of it as well, this one just made me SO happy. I am wearing it on the right. I do not think it is  a 100% exact replica of her old ME-style, and I wish teh bangs would be a bit lower on this one, but this is a thick, very wellmade and hot braid that goes over your boob. Truth has made a similar style, I believe it is called Froukje, but the way the braid just seems cut off at the bottom always bothered me. I love this. Eaters Coma in general makes very good mesh styles, even if not all of them are fitting my personal tastes. The style on the left is one of my current most worn styles as well. I think her textures are awesome, however I do wish she would add more colour-variety to her packages. Also, making hair, even meshhair, no mod is a bit sad. One should be abllowed to tint it a bit!

In the middle there is Exile, and I really, really do like it. Often enough, the shape of Exile’s hairs doesn’t go well with my headshape at all. In this case, I was SO hapy. Not only does it come with a bunch of cute, rigged meshflowers which you can obviously detach. :) The textures are nice and I really do like how it flows down over your boobs. I tinted the hair in this case. I bought the Naturals Package Exile offers and the tone ‘Sunset’ doesn’t exactly strike me as a red tone, so I tinted it a bit,  e voilà, now I am happy. :)

I think that is something  creators of hairs should really keep in mind: Please, please add packages with one example of each natural colour! I know Exile, Eliaktira, LeLutka and Magika do this, but I really wish others would follow as well. Make it a little more expensive than  the usual packs, that justs eems fair. But nothing is worse than having to buy tons and tons of hairs in a new colour, just because youc hanged your colour after years. :D I know what I am talking about.

 

So, that’s it for now and the next post will be more than liekly after the 4th of March. Unless I start procrastinating… :P
