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.

Hey peeps!

Well, next time I schedule a blogpost for the weekend I should probably try to keep track of my rl work and not forget I have 28 exams still waiting to get corrected. UGH. So this one is late now and I feel stupid for completting forgetting about those and having spent my entire damned weekend with that boring stuff.

Looking for a job? :P

But, here are some exciting news at least: Due to Ost having to take a general break from SL and thus from her event duties, we need someone to support our team for We Love RP! :) If you feel you’d like to help us with a focus on social media, follow this link: Social Media Manager Application for WE LOVE RP! :D

Also, do not forget that the Mystic Realms Faire is closing on Monday, so make sure to drop buy and pick up some of the awesome items from there. :)

I am really damned tired today, so please forgive me for not reviewing any item this time around. i really, really do not want to write aaaaaanything further anymore. :( I promise the next post will be better again and hopefully will be coming soon, already got the first pic done! :) Also, Truth released new hair, so check out his mainstore asap. :P

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. :)

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. :)
