Lady, you lost your hat! – News from Truth, Remarkable Oblivion and more! :)

Hi guys!

I am so happy, pretty recently I received one of the coolest compliments about my blog. :D The person said, that she loves reading my blog and that reading it feels like having a chat with a friend over coffee. :) I was SO flattered when she said that, because it is one of the nicest compliments ever so far. :D Also, I am super happy that Entwined now will be adding smaller versions of their hairs to their packages! :D But enough gushing! Lets see what I am wearing. :P

The hair!

Eeeeeeep, Truth’s releases for The Mystic Realms Faire are SO gorgeous. He released three styles of which I am featuring two in this post. :) The first one is called Thalia, the second one is Neria. I am SO happy to see him making some wilder hairs again :) My absolute favourite one of these thre eis Neria, the style on the second pic in this  post. I love how long it and and I love the many, many loose strands. :) Thalia is a style I personally imagine being worn by a sorceress. It looks wild yet at the same time very fitting for a woman who puts a lot of effort into getting her hair done. I am not gonna repeat myself about Truth’f textures here, but let me say this: I am really, really fond of his light blondes pack, I think the tones are VERY well chosen. :D

The hat!

Look at Wurfel’s new hat! It’s a new release by Remarkable Oblivion (Nimvade Resident/Axisthorn Resident) for the TAG Gacha Event and it is SO awesome. RO’s textures are always awesome, there is no need to point that out imho. This hat however is really, really nicely done plus also useable for role-play. Imagine you play a wizard or sorceress of some kind. The hat is PERFECT for these roles. I noticed it is also really easy to downside and adjust to your head, also big enough to cover most hairstyles (I tried it with Thalia) which is often an issue with many hats. So if you fancy playing some sort of mysterious witch/wizard/sorcerer or something along those lines, this hat is definitely a must have. Not to mention, there are other hats in that gacha as well one of which has a HUGE eye where this one has a cross. Love it. :)

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!

Dancing on my own – News from GField, Magika, Truth and moooore! :D

Hiya peeps! :)

A little bird chipred something about new textures from Tableau Vivant coming soon! :) I am really excited to see what the results of the ongoing testings will be. :) Aside from that, Truth and Magika both released phenomenal new styles.

The hairs!

On the picture below, you see one of the new releases (Shae) by Truth and I am a total sucker for this kind of style. A thick yet loosely braided braid with random strands dangling from it. LOVE it. I also have started to really dig Truth’s blonde. The HUD for the light tones comes with a nice variety of blondes randing from creme blondes to blondes with a slightly yellow, honey-like touch and even blondes that are a good bit darker than you’d expect in this package. I love his highlights! I personally love the platin blondes best. I did try the variety packs by Truth and I DO hope that one day he will possibly exchange the blondes in there: The lighter blonde unfortunately is the only blonde that I personally think isn’t the prettiest because it looks a tad bit greyish. Maybeeeeee…one can hope? :D

The other hair is by Magika and a new style as well and SO pretty, too! I love Magika’s packs, all natural colours are included in one big package, which makes the 250 Lindens you pay for them one hell of a deal. The style is very soft, girly and cute: Long, softly falling strands and overall gently highlighted. I like Magika’s blondes a lot even if their brighter tones tend to be a wee bit more yellow than others, A fan of this style!

The skirt!

Eeep, look at this skirt! I right away have to admit that this skirt by GField (Cerberus Noel) at Creation JP is hard to mix and match with other items due to the unusual height on the hips. However, if you do have items that work, short blouses, boleros, bandeau tops etc, this skirt ROCKS. It’s really long enough imho to work for role-play if you combine it well. It fits perfectly into the waist andthe lacings are not just drawn upon the mesh, but are actually made of mesh as well. :) The gentle flare of the skirt makes it easy to combine it with all kinds of belts as well. The texture is nice but not too over the top, so you can both turn this into a more down to earth look or into something far more sophisticated. :) It comes in various colours too! :DBlog395_1

Can’t get him outta my head – news from The Secret Affair, Genre, A Clockwork Spiral!

Hi guys!

I have been hugging the sheets for the past couple of days. :( But now I am back and at least I managed to prepare two posts, even thought hey will be short ones because I have to work on a  LOT of stuff that I kept procrastinating while sick.  :) Truth and Tableau Vivant both released new hairstyles, don’t forget to check them out! :D

The corset!

The Plastik (Aikea Rieko) released this gorgeous corset at The Secret Affair. And YAY! It is an overbust corset (is that the correct term?) which spares us the eternal search for something to fit with it. :) It comes in a TON of different colours and with various options to wear it: With additional sleeves, with or without the collar, as an underbust version, a cropped version. It costs a little more than your average corset (449L) but I suppose all these options make that price okay! I really LOVE the amount of details on this: Little buttons, lots lof strings and lacings. However, and I am NOT sure if this is just a general rigging problem in SL or a problem of this specific corset: If you look closely at my pic, you can see that the lacings (strings?) get somewhat distorted and “drawn apart” depending on how you move, especially around the stomach area and the edge on my shoulder.  That is a bit strange, I had not happen that with other pieces,  but honestly it didn’t bother me enough to not like this corset a lot. :)

Lets sing a lonely song – News from May’s Soul and Tableau Vivant!

Hi peeps!

I originally wanted to post a different outfit today…BUT! I ran into these two super pretty avis, name Kynne Llewellyn (to the left) and Duchess Flux. Duchess asked me if I wanted to pose with them and I was sooooooo excited, because both Duchess and Kynne are so awesome. I love their pictures, you need to check them out (click on their names!). So I agreed, only to prove I am a total noob because I use no posestands and poor Kynne had to deal with me clumsily turning here and there. :D But the outcome was so much worth it. :P

The hair!

All of us are wearing updos by Tableau Vivant. :) The one on my own head is the newest one currently available at Collabor88 and comes with long bangs (shown), straight bangs and sidebangs. Kynne’s and Duchess’ styles are available at The Arcade. I love my new hair! It is such an elegant style and for some reason reminds me a lot of Brigitte Bardot. There aren’t many updos that go waaay up that look good on my avi, but this one does. I DO think that a wee bit of realism in form of hairclips would have been awesome, because there is just no way that loose strand on top of my head would stay there. That doesn’t take away from the coolness of this style tho. :D I do believe that M4ri1yn worked on the general headshape of his hair too? Because I noticed that I don’t seem to have any forehead issues with his styles anymore, which used to be somewhat common a while ago (hair too high, leaving a giant forehead etc.)

Blog392PS1

The dress!

All of us are wearing various variations of May’s Soul’s (May Tolsen) dress for The Secret Affair, combined with a furstole which will also be available once the event opens (also by May’s Soul). I told Duchess that I am not usually someone who wears a lot of dresses in rp and that I am getting tired of dresses over dresses for us girls, but sometimes, there are the rare finds that make me want to blog them. This is one of them, even though the actual shape of the dress isn’t even terribly complicated! I LOVE the textures, the satin ones are very realistic looking imho and the highlights are just really neatly done: Neither too weak, nor too strong. The one I am wearing is one of the ‘leather’ textures, which still look very silky and soft. :D And now…breathe in and out! The dress is only 160 Lindens per colour. The dress is available in ombre tones, leather textures and satin textures. This is a giant, superawesome steal and so worth it. 160 Lindens is incredibly generous for original mesh. I think May Tolsen may just be a new star on the horizon.

Please do check out Kynne’s Flickr and Duchess’ Blog to find out what they are wearing! :D
