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. :)

There’s just silence left – News from Just Design, The Plastik and more! :D

Hi guys,

WE LOVE RP started two days ago and well, this round I could barely decide what to blog first. So instead I chose to go for a certain style and tried to find items that match it. :) Uber started too and there are a ton of awesome items there! The Arcade is going on as well, good luck getting in! :P

The corset!

The corset on the picture below is a new item by Just Design (Davidefre Resident) and currently available at WE LOVE RP. This is gooooorgeous. I am so glad to find a corset that shows actual leather that wrinkles when you wear it. The textures are -awesome- and the details he added to this corsets are amazing. I LOVE that all the lacings on this corset are actual mesh and not a drawn on texture. You can tint all these parts of the corset individually with a HUD if you get the fatpack. The normal pack costs 295 Lindens and the corset comes in seven colour variations. Even the normal version comes witha  lot of options for customisation. I love the fact that the attached belt with the pouches (which is a totally cute detail, too!) can be hidden through the HUD.The corset comes in a wider version, a normal version and even a version for the Belleza Body. I wish there were more variations, but that’s a minor downside for me.

The sleeves!

The sleeves (I am not sure what else to call this item. A top maybe?) on the two pictures below are part of Aikea Rieko’s outfit for WE LOVE RP! As per usual, The Plastik’s outfit comes in a TON of different textures. I like the simple, brown one usually best. I really like the detail with all the buttons and on the sleeves, but what totally caught my eye at first was the fact that the hands are attached! And…they are pretty hands. Usually, items with attached hands have ugly, yellowish hands. I seriously never once found hands attached to tops that I liked. These ones however are pretty nice and it allows for a unique look with the sleeve ending in some sort of glove, which usually cannot be achieved otherwise. Really a fan of this! At 329 Lindens, this outfit is a real steal. It come swith pants, the top shown, boots, and a corset. Very much a fan! I oooonly wish the rather big collar wasn’t so wide.

Oh, I won’t tell my mother – News from Remarkable Oblivion, Pixicat, Tableau Vivant and more! :D

Hey guys!

My compy is being a butt and annoyed me this whole weekend, together with my hurting brain, so this post will onyl have on pic. But I think you still can see everything that is importnat!

I am way late to the party for Enchantment, but today is your last chance to pick up some AWESOME items, both at the stores and at the place where you can get the prices. Thsi round’s theme is/was Bluebeard. To get the prices, you first have to buy an item offered by one of the participating stores (check Seraphim!) and receive one of their stampcards. The item will be marked as specifically made for the event. You attach the stampcard and then you go to each store on the list and click the stamping machine. Once you collected all stamps, you can choose a prize of your liking at the main location. I love this system so much, because it also bring traffic to the stores!

The collar!

Ohhhh my god. This collar by Remarkable Oblivion for The Arcade (starting tomorrow!!) is so, so gorgeous. It comes with maatching hat and the bracers shown in the picture (each one comes with a matching gemstone). AxsisThorn and Nimvade seriously have made an incredibly versatile and awesome item here. I can see this being worn for all kinds of mage-/sorceress-outfits as well as victorian or steampunkish characters. I love the textures on this one and especially like the detail on the feathers and the gem. The collar is a rare of the gacha and comes in three different colour versions (black, red, white). I wish it was modifyable, because the resizers (even those that let you resize all sides individually like this one) confuse the heck out of me at times. But well, I am a fan of this one. And hey, a HINT! RO lowered their gacha prices, so now it’s only 75L to play this machine. :D

The dress!

When I first saw this dress by Pixicat (Areve Resident) for Enchantment I was squeeing all over it. However, that was when I returned home from holidays and WE LOVE RP started, so I forgot that for along time for some reason. I am so happy Voshie reminded me of it. Directly went to get all my stamps and got this phenomenal dress. I loooove it. It comes as a whole fatpack, five sizes and a whole colourset to choose from. You can combien these colours on the skirt and ‘inner part’ of the dress separately. The textures on this one are SO pretty and I love the highlights! Not too much, yet still popping out enough. The real eyecatcher though clearly is the rope that goes around the waist and up to the neck. A super unique dress imho, I have not seen this style anywhere so far. Totally a must have! :)

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. :)

Goodbye and see you soon! – With news from ieQED and The Forge. :)

Hi guys!

This is just a quick post really, but I totally wanted to display these fashionable items. :) In four hours I will be on my way to Crete so please forgive any spellign mistakes, I am flailing around here! :) I will be gone from July 23rd until August 4th (WE LOVE RP will start on the 6th!) and all desigerrs/eventmanagers should be aware by now (sent out notecards!).

The floral crown!

This crown is a rare item from a Gacha at The Secret Affair and offered by Sigifaust Resident of ieQED. It is SO damned pretty. The best part is that you can resize it in all directions and thus make it fit to your head nearly perfectly. The flowers are really welldone, very detailed and very, very pretty imho. The other items in that gacha are good as well, so even if you are not a fan of gachas, you’ll get pretty items! :)

The necklace!

Deccan Arida of The Forge roooooocks. I would not be surprised if all of these ar esold at at Project Limited. We were discussing designs for necklaces one evening and the next morning, he came up with this, very much based on an idea we had found on the internet. The man is so fast, yet stilldelivers great quality. The man’s insane and this item is very much worth it.

I look up to the sky above – News from Spellbound, Zenith and Drift! :)

Hi guys,

a new post and a couple of really pretty dresses. :) This post is a little shorter, but I have some mor eoutfits up my sleeve which hopefully I’ll be blogging soon. I am going to visit my family for a week and well, I am not entirely sure yet if I’ll be able to get on SL there. But lets have a look at what Arica is wearing today! :) Also, stay tuned for a Hair Fair Post soon! :D

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is currently available at Collabor88 and is a new style by Spellbound. The designer, Kohana Xue, relatively recently appeared upon the hair-horizon and her hairs are gorgeous. I am in damn love with her textures, especially because each colour package comes with sooo many options: Ten tones and each one with a roots and a no roots version. Her textures are pretty and the meshes are super smooth, just sometimes her hairs appear to be a bit big on me and they are NOT necessarily always realistic, but…hey. The store is called Spellbound, do you expect realism all over with a name like that? I surely don’t and I love it. The below hair is extra cute. I am not usually a fan of shorter hairs but I couldn’t pas son this one because of the ubercute little braid on the forehead. I love it! :)

Blog378PS_1

The first dress!

The dress on the picture above is offered by Zenith for Collabor88 as well. Miffyhoi Rosca surely has improved a ton over the past 6 months or so and you can spot her store in more and more events lately. This dress is really, really plain cute. I love the ruffles on the chest and I personally like the slim waist and the fact that you can so easily add a waist belt there. The pattern on the lower end are really welldone and cute. I did however notice some weird alphas issue. I am wearing the dress in XS, but I had the same problem with S and even M: The boobs stick through! And granted, I already did make my boobs a lot smaller, down to 25. I am not sure, but I think that is something that needs fixing but I think it is manageable. (I simply used an additional alpha). I for sure think this dress is gorrrrrgeous. :)

The second dress!

The second dress is an item by Kallisto Destiny for Drift Fantasy and is available at WE LOVE RP.  It is a template, yes. I don’t care. (/rant on) I am tired of the rant about templates and I think unless a designer is able to manage to do EVERY part of their creation themselves on an equally high level, they should probably stop belittling those that use templates. Using pre-made animations/scripts/textures is no different and just as ‘reptitive’. No one wants the same anims in every item either nor the same textures. I’ll prefer a wonderfully textured template dress over a wonderful mesh with mediocre textures. (/rant off) And this dress is really pretty imho. It comes in several different colours and the template has a very pretty design, perfect for fantasy and for mixing and matching. It had a very, very low cut cleavage on the back.  I like that Kallisto managed to pull off a texture that isn’t really silk, but looks still very extravagant and chic. It is fitted mesh and I detected a strange issue: When my boobs are small, they poke through! Even with the alpha. When I make my boobs bigger, they stop doing that. I figure I still have no idea how fitted mesh works but this confused me greatly. :D I think Kalli made a really nice entrance to the fantasy community with this offer of hers. :D
