It’s hard to explain – News from Truth, Evie’s Closet and more!

Hey guys!

So, school started again and the usual hectic life too. :D  I am basically flailing while trying to get all my stuff sorted out and it’s all wayyyyy too much at once. Schools’ starts are often hectic but this so far beats it all, and not even in bad ways. Lots of good stuff happened lately. Now all we need is a lengthy vacation at some nice place during summer.

As for my outfit, I got inspired by a dress! Also, Truth released hair that I love! Lets take a look at it. :)

It's hard to explain

The dress!

Dresses usually cause only a faint tingle of excitement for me, but sometimes there are those few ones that make me go “YAY! Pretty!”. Evangeline Miles’ newest creation for WE LOVE RP for her brand Evie’s Closet is one of those. I am actually not sure if this is a custom mesh for her (I haven’t seen this model before?) or if it’s a template and quite honestly forgot to ask, too. But given that I don’t mind welldone templates so terribly much, it was really the textures that caught my eyes. To me, Evie is a true texture artist. I am not sure why, but I always love hers. The textures on this dress are incredibly silky and soft looking. Only the underskirt has a slightly rougher texture. I really feel Evie always pinpoints just the right balance between highlights and shadows on her items and has got an eye for colours and patterns. This dress comes in four standard sizes and costs 325 Lindens at WE LOVE RP and comes in five pretty colours. Each dress has three parts: The actual gown and a top and skirt which add a transparent, silken layer to it. It was easy to fit it to the Maitreya Lara Body, too! I am very much liking this dress!

Oh, what do I know? – News from Tee*fy, Blueberry and more!

Hey peeps,

so this is the last picture I took at my old sim Harrowdale! Harrowdale was turned into a new role-play sim and I quite like it thus far, though I sometimes wish I would forget all foubts about possible guilty feelings and just purchase a real sim. :D I’d be basking in all the awesomesauce I could create there.

Lets see what my avi was wearing though during her last minutes at Harrowdale!

Oh, what do I know?

 The dress and the skirt!

Yes, I am wearing a dress! See that ‘shirt’ with the leather belt/bodice? That’s actually a new dress by Tee*fy (Azure Electricteeth) which you can buy at Uber for only 250L/color. Each color, which there are 19 available, comes with various belt texture options. When I saw this dress all I thought was “How cool if I could combine this with other skirts or pants.” Well, I had no pants that work with it (the ones worn are appliers), because Tee*fy usually goes for a slimmer shape and fitting the dress over pants is hard unless you want stick-legs, but I managed to mix and match it with this equally awesome skirt by Blueberry (also available at Uber). It comes in 14 colours and costs 199 Lindens each. Both items really go well together and both items are finely textured and feature quite a few nice details. :D I LOVE the belt on the dress, it can easily be seen as some sort of weapons harness. The pearls-belt and buckle on the skirt are nice details as well (The belt is recolourable via a HUD). Personally, I really enjoy this combination of two wellmade items as an outfit. I only wish the Tee*fy dress was a LITTLE wider around the hips to allow fitting non-stick-legs pants underneath it, but…that’s probably not what the creator had in mind when making a casual summerdress. :D

They say I murdered you! – News from Moon Amore, Trap, Truth and more! :)

Hi peeps!

Here is a hint: As a teacher, never let your kids write a reading diary about a 336 pages book. Mine did that and I had to read and correct them all. :) I apparently must have forgotten about just HOW much work this was going to be once they were done. :) Only took me several hours each day over the span of ten days. I mean, yes, the kids loved it, but I seriously felt like jumping off the balcony after the 13th. :P

However, I managed to get two outfits and pics done, so I’ll be posting them, one today, and one as soon as possible, probably tomorrow or on Monday.

Lets see what my avi is wearing! :D

They say I murdered you - Blog Soon!

The dress!

This is a new dress by Psyqueen Resident for her brand Moon Amore at WE LOVE RP. And it is such a cute dress. :) It comes in eight different colour options and only costs 200 Lindens, which is a 30% discount. Each dress comes with  HUD that gives you more texture options for the specific colour variant that you chose. The textures are really pretty and i like the combination of metals and silky textures. The strings around the waist is a cute detail. I also like that you can tint all these things independently. :D The shape of the dress is really interesting, though personally I would have wished for one ‘normal’ and one ‘windblown’ option. Still, for 200L this feels like a steal. :) Also, combined with these super detailed and awesome pauldrons by Trap (Selos Dae) this dress looks totally awesome in my book.

Skirt: Storybook, Spellbound Skirt, wildberry (Vix Nirvana @ WE LOVE RP!!)

Confronting doubts – News from tee*fy, Izzie’s and more! :)

Hi guys,

WE LOVE RP started again and dayum, this round was somehow really stressing me out. Not even sure why, but I sighed with relief when it was open and everything seemed to go really well. For some reason I was super nervous. Hope you guys found some nice items there that suited your style! :D

Aside from that, life has been absurdly busy, basically been running around from appointment to appointment. But hey, I finally get to write this post. :P Lets see what my avi likes to wear!

Confronting Doubts

The romper!

Yes, this is actually a romper. :D It’s an item by Azure Electricteeth for her brand Tee*fy at Uber and when I saw I instantly had this idea to use it for an item. :D Tee*fy is usually known for making really, really girly items, lots of ruffles, pastels and cutesy items. All of them very well made. Each romper comes with five sizes and costs 280 Lindens, which is a fair price. The textures are pretty and the shape, folds and wrinkles of the mesh are really, really welldone in my book, even though it gives me a wee bit of a flat bum. I do wish the belt could be detached and worn separately though! The romper comes with a HUD which allows you to give the belt six different colourschemes. I really like the tiny buttons! I am wearing the romper with the Maitreya Body (Onyx LeShelle) and it worked really well, even with most odd poses. Overall, I feel this item is a really nice addition to my mix and match folder. :)

(No) Regrets? – News from Tableau Vivant, Truth and more! <3

Hi guys!

I am alive! :D Seriously, after the past weeks I am SO glad I am not coughing like a choking witch anymore. And add tot hat, after months of famring it (up to 5 times or so per week for bonusrolls) I finally got the (almost, bc not Mythic) BIS trinket for my prot warrior on WoW.  Good old Tectus kept it to himself for a looooong time!

But lets move on to more interesting stuff! I’ve been trying to work on my picture taking skills and PS skills this week and I am quite happy with the results! What do you  guys think?

Lets have a look!

Regrets - Blog Soon!

The updo!

Updos are forever a red flag for me. For SOME reason I hardly ever find updos that really fit my avatar, which certainly has to do with me NOT liking the yoda-esque style of elven ears so many sl elves seem to sport. The result is that a lot of updos look weird on me because my ears are glitching or I have to adjust them and well…end up looking like Yoda-Elf. Or they are quite simply too big or have an odd shape. When I saw this release by Tableau Vivant for Shiny Shabby though I squee-ed a little and tried it on right away. It didn’t fit! BUT it is modiyable AND you can stretch the sides individually via a script. So in the end, I managed to make it fit perfectly. No weird glitching/sticking true! And it is a really cute, pretty style too. :) It’s already known that I am a sucker for TV’s textures, so I am not going to dwell on that. BUT: The new ‘frizzy chic’ textures this hair comes with really, really impress me because they look SO very real. I love the hint of frizz and messyness that they add. :) Looking forward to see more styles coming with these textures! The hair comes with three different textures packages and a really cute flower accessory. Must have in my book. :)

No regrets?

The second hair!

My oh my. Truth’s hair is usually really good, but sometimes he dishes out a style that makes me go WOW. Avena is one of those. It is big, it looks wild and messy. I like Truth’s textures and now that my avi has been blonde for some time I feel I can actually appreciate the amount of tones he offers even more, especially the fact that his light- and platinblondes do NOT suffer from the greyish, greenish or too yellow undertones so many other hairbrands offer. I often hear that Truth’s styles supposedly ‘always look the same’ and frankly, I cannot really agree. I feel that he is actually one of the more versatile hair creators on the grid, who doesn’t hesitate to venture into all kinds of areas, from girly to elegant, funky to clean, pretty to messy. This one is definitely petty AND messy and I am especially a fan of the loose strands dangling in front of the face. :)

What took you so long? – News from Enfant Terrible, Zenith and more! :D

Hi guys,

it’s the sickly internet elf again! I hope you have all been well and hopefully better than I! :P I am feeling a lot better by now and thought I better squeeze out my next post! This outfit took me quite a while until I really liked it. But now I am happy with this! :) Also sad to see one of the longest standing role-play sims go! Mystara is closing soon, but one of their admins will create a spin off sim, so there’s something to look forward to! I may not have been a deeply involved player there and it probably wasn’t the kind of rp I always seek, BUT I can appreciate how hard these people worked on the sim and how well they did, as well as I can appreciate the great builders there!

So, lets have a peek, shall we? :)

What took you so long?

The corset!

Guys, look at this corset! It is currently available at The Liaison Collaborative and a new creation by Enfant Terrible. With each release she gets better and better and when you think she kinda reached the top already, the next item is better again. I love this corset. I love the ruffles and awesome textures it comes with. I am a sucker for extremely welldone and realistic looking textures and the 3D effect on these looks really awesome. :) The amount of details on this corset is really great too: Each tiny button isn’t just a drawn upon texture, but an actual mesh. I would killed for a more worn looking version of this, but the item probably wasn’t intended to be worn by ranger elves. :P I like it a lot anyways and you guys should too!

I am missing you! -Belated news from Zenith, The Forge, Truth an more!

Hey guys,

 

it is rare for me to not post in such a long time, but I can explain it. I am really sorry. :( First,I ran into a really weird SL issue that I couldn’t get fixed for days: Whenever I tried to take a picture, every texture around me (not on my avi!) kept rezzing, getting blurry, rezzing, getting blurry. Every second. Not only did it hurt my eyes but also it was impossible to take pics like that. I tried out four different viewers, nothing fixed it. Finally with the help of some friends I got it to work again! Also many thanks to Steffy Ghost, who showed me how to make shadows look pretty on Firestorm. :)

The second issue I ran into was my health: Last weekened the ‘virus’ I had since weeks came back with a vengeance. Turns out it is a fullblown bronchitis and I am staying at home another week. Today was the first day when I was awake more than roughly 3 hours. So yeah, there’s that. Boo. :(

But on to more exciting stuff! What is my avi wearing right now?

Missing you

 The…umm….top!

I love this. It was something I had pinned on pinterest and I was SO happy to see that Miffyhoi Rosca of Zenith had created this item in SL. It is such a unique and awesome design and looks totally badass. I’ve been looking for something like this for soooo long now. :) I am not sure what to call it to be honest, so I’ll just say…top.  Miffyhoi put awesome textures (and chose really nice colours too!) on this item and the little details such as the buckles, metal pieces and straps are great. The top comes in four colours and the price of 260 Lindens is really good for this in my book. However, I do wish people would still provide the usual standard sizes, too. Fitted mesh only is not enough, please do give us sizes as well! Otherwise, layering becomes a chore and sometimes is next to impossible. :( However, I still grabbed this instantly at WE LOVE RP, just too cool to be ignored!
