Will you stay with me my love? – News from Truth, Tia, Evie’s Closet and much more! :)

Hi guys! :)

I am in the middle of preparations for the next holiday on Crete! Sooo excited, but still so much stuff to do!

Also, stay tuned for the Mystic Realms Faire coming up in October 2014! More infos will be coming soon! Voshie Paine, Catheryne Darkfury and I are – together with our team- working hard to put together an awesome, two sims wide faire for you to shop at. No gambling, pay and get what you want! :D  I am terribly excited about this and the list of designers who’ll be contributing is awesomesauce. :)fin logotype redo 2

But now, lets have a look at the outfit. :)

The hair!

Braids are the new cool thing lately, I sweaaaar! I see them everywhere, and it makes me happy because it was about time. It is rare though that people really manage to pin it for me. A lot of braids are not very well shaded so they just don’t really look all that good. Not in this case though! :) I love Xantheanne by Truth because it is wavy, pretty and rather unique. There aren’t many styles like this that I have seen and liked. This looks as if it actually could work in rl and I LOVE how it isn’t just straight hair, but curly. Very, very pretty and girly. :) The only small thing I would maybe have added? A  string of sorts that keeps the braid tied up. :D But that’s really minor.

The necklace!

I like dainty stuff at times. I don’t want BAM IN YOUR FACE all the time. Sometimes dainty and delciate works just as well for me and may as well be an eyecatcher. The necklace shown is an item provided by Tia Biscuit of Tia, available at The Secret Affair. We all now her for her awesome furniture and finally she has gotten the hint that she’s good at other stuffs, too! :D This necklace is reall, really cute and I like the textures she used a lot. For 175 Lindens this is a good deal as well. Plus, it really is a cute and unique design. :)

The dress!

Omg, gasp! Arica blogs a template dress again! Ewww! How dare she! Yes, I do. I do because this dress quite simply rocks. Evangeline Miles of Evie’s Closet once again has proven that wonderful textures on a template can make a gorgeous and even unique looking item. I love this dress, it is perfect for a somewhat rustic look and also allows us to show some ARM and wear some armor or jewelry there. :) The textures are plainly really, really awesome. The only thing that I noticed is that I would always include meshsizes still, even if you offer a fitted mesh variant of an outfit. Buy this pretty dress at WE LOVE RP!! :)

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

I hear the birds on the summer breeze – News from Truth, Tableau Vivant, Eldritch and DRD! :)

Hi guys!

WE LOVE RP started well into this round (I think) and there are a ton of awesome items to be had there. You should definitely not forget to check it out. The Secret Affair is starting on July 15h (take a look at their website!) and I think it is gonna be neat.

The hairs!

I love braids. I always did and still do in SL, probably because I never manage such perfect, thick braids in rl. So when I saw the new style Blythe by Truth I jumped a little. It is right up my alley. I like that it isn’t the usual kind of braids we see where the hair is parted right in the middle but is sideswept instead. The single loose strand at the front is really cute. As per usual, it comes with a boobie-version included as well.

The second hair (second picture) is one of my new favs. Tableau Vivant by M4ri1yn Magic has improved so, so, so much over time, both textures and the smoothness of the meshes. I remember only a year ago I thought their hair was too chunky, but now I truly like it. The style is called Panther and available at July’s round of Collabor88. The handband comes with a HUD and various options to colour it and is a really pretty detail. Unfortunately I realized too late that you cannot see the cute feathers on this picture, so you’ll have to believe my words or see for yourself. :D

Blog377PS_1

The peni…err…staff!

I swear I didn’t realize it until I was working on the picture and already had taken a gazllion of pics ingame. No, this staff does NOT normally look like a phallic symbol, in fact, it only does show a small resemblance from one perspective and together with this pose…well. Very prominent for sure and I got a lot of mockings for it. :D But aisde from that, this staff is available at WE LOVE RP and is an offer by Kiera Ashdene for her store Eldritch. Her textures are gor-ge-ous. I cannot emphasize it enough. The detail and amount of work she outs into her items always show and imho, this staff is a perfect addition for many kinds of fantasy characters. I really got nothing to complain, just watch out to find a better pose than I did. :D

The belt!

I sometimes wonder how Jaimy Hancroft of DRD manages to dish out sooo many awesome items in such little time. For WE LOVE RP she came up with this awesome belt with many, many pouches. :) Leather and pouches = happy elf. The amount of detail is really awesome on this one, lots of little buckles, pockets, buttons. Plus truly pretty textures and the price of 50L is totally ridiculous. I chose to ignore the little steampunkish application on one of the pockets, because this belt IS actually meant for steampunk, not so much for medieval fantasy. But I think it works. :)

I want to see the stars – News from Purple Moon, Eudora 3D and lots of hairs! :)

Heya peeps,

two more weeks until it’s finally the end of the schoolyear and I get to have a six week summer break. It’s about time, I am TIRED. :D Life is busy atm but I still managed to put together this outfit which is somewhat unusual and I really like it because of that! :)

Lets have a glimpse!

The squirrel!

This squirrel by Anya Ohmai for !Ohmai is adorable. I am not usually a BIG fan of the giant influx of plushies al over the place, but some always manage to stick out and this is one of them for sure. For this steampunk inspired outfit it is perfect. :) I love the incredibly welldone textures as well as the generally – somewhat unnatural- cute shape…plus the mini goggles! :) It comes with various options to hold and rez it and certainly is a good companion for anyone who like ssteampunksih outfits..or maybe plays a pilot? :)

Blog374PS_2

The dress!

This dress by Purple Moon (Poulet Koenkamp) is, imho, a proof that templated clothing in SL does not equal uncreative and boring outfits.  It comes in two parts, the upper jacket and the lower skirt, so it can be worn and combined separately. I LOVE this dress. I love that it has the hi-low cut so that it displays your legs while still not being too sexy. :) There are far too few of these kinds of skirts out there! I really like the texture of the jacket. The skirt is nice too, but for me the jacket beats it since I am suck a sucker for leathers. :) This template also comes with a great deal of little details, for example the ruffled part on the belly and the metal applications. Pretty! And the best part is, it is an RFL item at Fashion For Life, which means a set percentage gets donated. :)

The boots!

Eudora 3D is a store that has been around for little more than a year by now. In my opinion, Eudora3D Resident is one of the best shoe-designers in SL hands down. His designs are incredibly real looking and the textures are so, so awesome. These shoes are SO perfect for victorian or steampunkish styled avatars. They come in two different colour packs with 12 texture options each. Each package is 650 Lindens, the fatpack is 950 Lindens, which is one hell of a deal. :D Their shoes are not on the cheapie side of the scale but still very reasonably priced for the awesome quality you get and the myriad of options. If you compare the whole package you buy here with similarily priced shoes elsewhere, you will realize they aren’t really expensive at all. I really hope Eudora will make more medievalish boots soon! Hint, hint, hint! :P

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. :)

Blog372PS_1

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.

My cozy home – News from WE LOVE RP and The Arcade!!! :D

Hey peeps!

WE LOVE RP and Arcade finally started and I have been sitting on quite some blogging stuff or quite some time and haven’t gotten to post it yet because this round of WE LOVE RP was a real mess behind the curtains. :D Not in any drama-eaque way, just waaaaaay too many little things going on (and going wrong) at once. I am so glad this round still started relatively smoothly and finally now I can blog again. :) This post will feature a LOT of items from WE LOVE RP and The Arcade.

The wagon!

This wagon is quite plainly gor-ge-ous and is offered by Annie Ibanez and Zelest Fall for their store Stormwood at WE LOVE RP. I didn’t really trust my eyes when I saw it at first especially when I saw it has only 10 LI. It comes in four different colour versions. The textures are absolutely pretty and the whole design is super, super cute. I think this is a PERFECT item for many, many medieval-ish kinds of sims. At only 525 Lindens this item is a real steal as well. The textures of the cloth can be changed via an easily navigable HUD. It has two windows and on the inside there’s enough room to make it cozy and cute. The ONLY thing that would have been cool would have been some little additions like a hanging lamp, or a campfire…something along those lines. But eh, complaining on a very high level here. I am super happy to have this in my inventory now! :) You guys definitely need to watch this store, all of their items so far have proven to be great and some real competition for similar stores!

The wooden staff!

The wooden staff in the picture below shall be a druid’s next favourite item for sure. Or maybe a mage’s? I know for sure that this is one of the most detailed staves I have seen in some time now. I love the amount of details Druunah Esharham and Damian Kleiner of Aisling manage to implement into their items. This staff is not only incredibly pretty imho with awesome textures and a really cool design, but also the glowing runes you see constantly disappear and re-appear. The pearls and ropes wrapped around the staff and the big crystal are really, really pretty. the colour of the crystal and the runes can be changed through a  HUD. The most startling fact however is the price: 263 Lindens for this item is incredibly generous. So, instant buy for me and it is available at WE LOVE RP!!

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is a style by Mina Nakamura for her store Mina and is called Femke. It will be available tomorrow at the Fashion for Life Fair and is a completey new style. 15 % of it will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life Foundation. So not only are you getting an awesome hairstyle, btu you also support a good cause. :) This hair is really, really pretty imho. I often encounter the problem that Mina’s hairs are too big for my head but this isn’t the case here. It fits perfectly. I love this side-swept style. As per usual, it comes with a  materials and a non materials version, both for smaller and bigger boobies. I also noticed that this hair once again seems to have improved strands which look a lot slimmer and more natural than some of the older styles. Big fan! :)

I might seem so strong… – News from Remarkable Oblivion, Truth, Aisling and Zenith!! :D

Hi peeps!

WE LOVE RP started and I was quite busy for a few days. Plus, RL has become super busy as well. But here is another outfit I put together. You’ll noticed that my skin changes. Yes, I changed my look again. I can only recommend to try out both Birdy and Deetalez. :D Also, don’t forget to check out Fit For A Princess, another amazing event that started into its second round!

I have also been updating the website for WE LOVE RP some, added events that we support and some feedback from participants. :)

So, here we go!

The headpiece!

This headpiece is a new one by Remarkable Oblivion (Axsisthorn Resident/Nimvade Resident) for WE LOVE RP and well, it is gorgeous. Both creators for this brand are incredibly talented and creative. The earwings come in four texture versions. Each one costs only 199L at the event which is incredibly cheap considering the extremely awesome quality of their items. These earwings consist of butterfly-wings combined with flowers and tiny branches. I love, love, love the idea. It is such a perfect item for fantasy characters. You can wear the pieces separately too, no need to attach both! For me, this is a total must have. :)

The corset!

Obviously, there is at least one designergod who listens to my pleas and forwards them to his minions. Druunah Esharham of Aisling clearly is a minion of the designergod and took the task upon herself to create something awesome for WE LOVE RP. This corset is perfect, I think. I stared and stared, I used all kinds of poses and tried to find errors or something that I don’t like and well…failure. I cannot. It is one of the few corsets out there that doesn’t have lacings that are plainly a texture, but ACTUAL mesh-lacings! I am in love. The textures and meshwork is plainly gorgeous. It comes with several different textures included and at only 225 Lindens this is a total steal! :) So, so, so happy.

The necklace!

The necklace I wear in these pictures is a new one by Zenith (Miffyhoi Rosca) for FaMeshed! It costs 275 Lindens which is a very reasonable price for a set consisting of two pieces and comes in three different texture options. This necklace really has a spring-feeling to it. Butterflies, gold and pastel colours and cute beads. The textures are really, really pretty.  All three versions offer very tasteful choices of colours. The necklace comes together with a ring for both left and right hand. I only would have LOVED a secondary, shorter version of this necklace, but I suppose given the price that is too much to expect really. Instant buy!

Blog365PS_4

Mari’s thoughts drifted away while her gaze was locked onto the seemingly  dead orc’s ugly visage. Drifted towards her own past within the depths of the Yuirwood. To a figure who’s presence she hardly ever had acknowledged. A lurker in the shadows, frowned upon and avoided by most of her kin. His blood was tainted, they said, his green visage showing the nature of his heritage all too visibly. She recalled his ever sullen expression, mixed with a hint of admiration and her lips twisted into a smirk. Oh, how he had craved their attention and their approval, and had received neither. Elves, for all their beauty, were just as arrogant as the tales told. Soon enough his mother had found herself either shunned by her own kind or at least had been frowned upon. She had been the target of too many cruel jokes and tales to count, yet Mari recalled the devotion she displayed to teach her greenskin-son the way of the elves. Yet, despite her best efforts, the two of them had only barely been accepted among the citizens of their town anymore. Mari blinked her train of thoughts away and her gaze once again focused upon the orc, laying in front of her and squinted. His eyelids were fluttering. Clearly, the man wasn’t quite as dead….yet. She drew her bow and aimed at his throat.

 

Don’t let me win without a fight – NEWS from Liquence, Truth and Just Design!

Hi guys!

Finally I got around to blog again and this time I am in LOVE with the two hairs displayed. I keep switching back and forth and cannot decide which one I like better! While working on this outfit I noticed there is a DIRE need for awesome corsets that haven’t been blogged and sold like a gazillion times already. There are very, very few of those, and yes, I mean corsets only. Not stuff attached! Hint, hint, designers. :P

Okay, lets have a look!

The hair!

This hair is plainly awesome. I always enjoy Liquence’s Hairs (Villena Swansen) a great deal, but this is so far one of their best. The textures are silky and not too dry and the tones seem to be really pretty. I tried a couple of them and cannot say that I don’t like any. The mesh is really smooth looking and i am a sucker for these wispy strands. Very, very pretty. However, I noticed it doesn’t come in various headsizes, which would be really cool. I got lucky and this one fits me just fine, but I bet there are people out there who’d die for a hairbase.

Blog363PS_1

The other hair!

The second hair is a new style by Truth Hawks. I love braids and I constantly search for those, so obviously I squeeeeeed when I saw this. Truth really managed to top most braids that are so fair available with this one. I’ll spare you the compliments and stuff on the textures and the mesh. What I love is the fact that this hair comes with a headband that can be hidden and thus can be replaced with one of your own choice. :D Also, I like how the braid gets thinner towards the end. Too many braids out there stay really thick, and we all know that unless you are incredibly lucky and have SUPER MEGA hair, that is never the case. Happy!

The sandals!

These sandals are a preview of what is to come for the next round of WE LOVE RP by Just Design (Davidefre Resident). These rock! Gladiator Sandals that look GOOD are a rare find, the only ones I can think of are thos eby Enfant terrible. These have gorgeous textures and have an awesome style. On the back, there is a whole layer of leather held together by lacings. The textures look realistically rustic and worn. They are addons for the Just Design My Feet meshfeet, which are really, really goodlooking imho and can be matched perfectly to almost all wellknown skins outthere through a HUD with presets for each skin.I love my SLINK feet and will hardly stop wearing them, but these are WELL worth a shot! :)

But it felt so right when I saw your eyes… news from Lark, Soedara and more!!

Helloooo peeps! :)

How have you been? I have been fairly well, even though I haven’t gotten ANY role-play lately, too busy. :(And at the same time, sooo many awesome events started or are about to start that I could barely keep up. You should definitely check out Genre, Cosmetic Fair and Kustom9, both events are well worth a visit! :)

The wreath!

This wreath is so, so awesome. Sienia Trevellion of Lark is known to make all kinds of cute things, from furniture to clothes and accessories. She made this little piece for The Liaison Collaborative and it is perfectly fitting to the event’s theme: Tuscany Hills. The textures on this one is gorgeous and it comes in four variations, with different variations of the olives. There is also a lemon wreath available! Imho, this is the perfect item to cute up your avatar during an (italian) summer. :D Love it.

Blog361PS_3

The top!

I love versatile items. Versatile tops especially, and this for sure is one of them! It is part of a new release by Marbella Pronovost for Soedara and I LOVE to combine this piece with all kinds of dresses and other items. Beware, the rope that goes down between the boobs is attached to the knot, so you’ll have to cover up the area where it comes though the fabric, but that is easily done with a pretty necklace or something. Since this top is part of a whole outfit, the price of 450L is very reasonable, even shoes and jewelry are included. Definitely worth a try and it comes in a lot of different, pretty textures, ranging from exotic to oriental and more plain. Each package also contains three actual versions of the texture from which you can choose via a HUD.

Stand and take the fight! – Truth, Tableau Vivant, Ison, FatePlay and so much more!

Hey guys,

I have been slow, I know. :/ Lately, I have kind of been missing my usual drive, probably because now that my dreams of a D&D sim are located int he far future again, I have felt less compelled to role-play or do anything at all on SL. But, there is new stuff to be had and it is quite awesome. Collabor88 recently opened and so did The Seasons Story. Unfortunately, the latter onyl allows a small number of avis on sim which made it really hard for me to get in, or maybe I was just incredibly unlucky. :D Who knows! This time around, I also varied the outfit a little from picture to picture. :)

There are new hairs by Truth, Tableau Vivant and Clawtooth, all of them available at Collabor88! :)

The cardigan!

This cardigan by Chronokit (Kit Pizzicato) is actually an older item, however I love it! It is just plain enough to work well for medieval gear and the way the item is designed allows for us corset friends to put in on display. :D We all know how hard it is to find tops that go with underbust corsets. :) The cardigan isn’t super cheap with 300L but affordable enough and I like botht he textures and the mesh on this one. :) However, I would have expected more than three sizes to be honest. I thought 5-7 sizes is pretty much standard now. Still, Chronokit’s quality really allows for some minor letdowns like that. :)

Blog360PS_1

The cloak!

The cloak is part of the Dani outfit by FatePlay (Damien Fate) for WE LOVE RP! I am a total sucker for cloaks and stuff like that. Capes, cloaks…they can pimp an outfit so, so much! I enjoy the style of this cape (cloak?) a lot because it isn’t so terribly, unrealistically summetrical like so many other cloaks. Very nice job there! I do think a few little details would have veen nice, like for example a clasp at the throat or a somewhat woolier texture on the inner side. However, this is a GREAT addon for many, many outfits. :)

Blog360PS_44

The skirt!

Whenever Harry Hyx releases something new for Ison, I squee. Not only because I like his general style and often times his stuff can be used in rp, but also he prices them so very reasonably and because his choices of textures and colours are always next to perfect. In this case, he scored twice with me: I LOVE long skirts, but I HATE it that so many longer skirts cover up everything, even the feet. This is PERFECT though, you cna show off your awesome shoes, too, while still not wearing a too short skirt. :) Very happy, and love the silky, pleated look of it! Also, I noticed this skirt fits with most of my corsets! :D It has a belt that can be hidden and once that is done, it fits. :) Oh, and it is available at Collabor88!
