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.

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!

Your eyes betray what burns inside you! – News from Truth, LPD and Lassitude&Ennui! :)

Hi guys! :)

Don’t forget to take last ride to The Arcade!! Tomorrow is this round’s LAST day, so if you want any of those items, pick them up now. :) Who knows when the designers will get around to set them up in the stores. :)

Also, today is pastel day. :) At least for me it is. I got inspired by these super candy looking horns by Lassitude & Ennui for the upcoming round of WE LOVE RP! Jackal joked that the package contained darker versions as well which usually would be more to my liking, but I took that as a challenge and wanted to create a really cute, girly look today. :D I hope you like it anyways, since this isn’t my usual style.

Lets have a look at the outfit!

The hair!

When I saw Truth’s new releases I was at first not too happy, because styles that got no bangs usually do not suit my avi very well. However, Lagertha is soooo need, I had to try it. Which leads me directly to a tiny flaw: I wish styles that require hairbases would have them included! I think truth offers some hairbases somewhere, but picking them up separately seems unecessary. However, I used my own instead and damnit, I love this style. :) The two braids are so damned cute and I like how messy it looks. I will spare you my praise of his textures, but given that Truth is usually known for very perfect, clean  styles, this one is a nice change. Liking it a LOT and I think it is damned perfect for all kinds of medieval and gorean role-plays. :) Must have!

Blog350PS_5jpg

The horns!

These horns by Lassitude & Ennui are super cute. Period. They come in a lot of options of which I picked the girliest option ever. Plus: They come with the little leafy-headpiece and a matching necklace, too! They are going to be available soon at WE LOVE RP and Jackal Ennui really has done a good job here. The textures are ALL very welldone, there is something for everyone’s taste in that package. I like that these horns are SLIM and not the usual chunky kind of horns that you see everywhere. :) Very happy to see Jackal venturing further into the fantasy area! :)

The dress!

This dress by Nevery Lorakeet for les Petits Details is awesome. Credits go to Imogen Jie for telling me about this dress. It is SO damned pretty, and for only 290L I think it is a total steal. The best part though? You get TWO dresses in one package, one monochromatic version and one with flowers. As far as I know this dress is actually original mesh, too, and is a proof that awesome quality does not have to be overly expensive. The texture is gorgeous and very, very pretty and soft. Plus! I love that you can see the feet. Far too many dresses hide EVERYTHING (arms, legs, feet and even the neck at times) and thus are very hard to turn into a unique looking outfit. Very much in love with this. :)

Be my Embrace! – News from Magika, Truth, On A Lark, Aphorism and moooore. :D

Hiya peeps!

Busy, busy week! But I got around to pick up a couple of items that I really like and combine them into a new outfit. Truth has some new hairs out! Check them out. :) Genre has started and there are quite a few new and nice things out there. :D Lets have a peek at what my elfy is wearing.

The hair!

I am in utter love with the hair shown on the picture below. It is a new style by Magika (Sabina Gully) and it is gorgeous. It comes in three sizes and you can choose between three variations of colour HUDS, all of which include 30 (!!!) tones. For 250 Lindens, that’s a steal for sure. I only wish Magika would start to include hairs for bigger boobies, not that I need them personally, but it would be nice to have. I LOVE Magika’s textures and I was getting a little tired of her styles lately, so this one was a very, very nice surprise. Very different from everything she has and overall pretty unique. I very much like the small wisps of hair standing and the somewhat tousled look. Happiness in a folder! :D

Blog346PS_2

The tunic (and the crown)!

The tunic is an item I picked up at Discovering Destiny’s store On A Lark. I saw it and instantly thought it would be nice for mixing and matching it with other outfits. E voilà, it works! :) I have been watching this store for quite some time and noticed that she has moved on to making original mesh by now. I am not sure whether or not this is a template, but I like it! I don’t really care if it is, the texture is pretty and the design is just perfect for all kinds on outfits. There’s just one thing that bugs me: I cannot seem to find demos at the store. Or maybe I am blind? Not sure. I tried it anyways, which HONESTLY I rarely, if ever, do and I am glad I did so in this case. :)

Plus, check out this gorgeous crown on the picture above. I am in love, in love, in love. So far her best original mesh piece hands down. :) Available NOW at Genre!!!

Blog346 PS

The boots!

Boots for role-play are a rare find on SL. Especially if you don’t want to play some trashy hooker, don’t want to look totally out of place in a medieval sim and don’t want zippers or SHINY leather all over the place. I squee’ed when I saw these boots at Rucy Byron’s store Aphorism. I am a BIG fan of rough looking, thick leather and buckles. :) I enjoy the thick wrinkles and the general shape of these. They come in various sizes and the price of 350 Lindens seems very reasonable for original mesh. :) Also, hint, hint: A darker version of these are the current GROUPGIFT available at the store. I’d highly recommend to pick those up! Imho, these boots fit well into any kind of medievalish environment. :D

We Love Dresses – Don’t we? :)

Hi guys,

WE LOVE RP is starting today and imho this round is really, really awesome. 58 designers who crafted awesome items for you. I am giving a preview of some of my personal favourites here. :) Well, the first ones, the rest will follow soon enough. :)

The dresses!

These four dresses will ALL be available at WE LOVE RP once it starts today. All four of these dresses are so very different, yet so very awesome at the same time. To my knowledge, all of these are new releases AND original mesh, besides the dress by Evie’s Closet, which is a template.

1. Dress: The first dress is provided by Inex Hax for Peqe and is truly regal design imho. Loving the colouroptions and loving the textures, too! The shading on this gown is pretty much perfect, even when I zoomed in I could detect no lazy edges that other designers often seem to leave. I wish the upper part could be worn separately, but that’s really just nitpicking. :) I enjoy this dress a lot and I think it is PERFECT for elves. :) I have a feeling I will be wearing this a lot. :P

Blog344PS_2

2. Dress: Evangeline Miles has made this dress for Evie’s Closet and once again proves all those elitist wrong that insist that only original mesh is worth its money. Nope, wrong. Evangeline’s textures are marvelous and iho make up 100% for the fact that she is using a template here. I love this dress, I love the colouroptions available and I think the template she chose is terribly pretty. Probably even my personal fav.

Blog344PS_1 copy

3. Dress: DreamFantasia Nightfire is offering this dress for her store The Library. The shape is gorgeous and the colour really got me. I like the silky texture with the great highlights and also love the ‘ruffle’ that goes from to chest towards the back, it adds a nice detail. A simple yet incredibly elegant dress. Dream has come a long way, from using templates that used to look pretty …hmmmm…to this dress. Her progress has been insane.

4. Dress: Chandra Masala has designed this dress for her brand Apsara and as per usual, she is using strong colours and oriental (I hope this expression is right?) notes to enhance her items. Imho, you can spot “a Chandra” almost immediately among other dresses, her style is just THAT unique. As far as I know, she usually is inspired by indian fashion. It is original mesh and I LOVE the bright colours she uses. I think this dress would be PERFECT for various roles in various role-play settings. :) Very pretty!

All is buried within our past – News from The Arcade, Truth, TWA and more! :)

Hiya peeps!

The Arcade is around the corner and I have had my first peek at some previews and there is some really, really amazing stuff at that event already. Stay tuned for more previews to come soon! :) I am super excited already! Also, Truth released new hairs! :) I am displaying my personal fav of those, but the other two are really cute as well, have a look at them. :)

The top!

The top is actually a whole bunch of tops in one item. You can get these at The White Armory. I am usually not a at all a fan of layers tops (items in general) that cannot be worn separately, because it leaves so little room for creating your own, unique version of an outfit. However, I really liked the textures on this one. In my opinion Bee Dumpling has done a fine job. The mesh is a template, but templat eor not, I muchly enjoy the shape of the corset. Love the lacings and love the fact that there is some ‘space’ between them. It still maintains a natural shape and doesn’t give the avatar too much of an unnatural hourglass figure. Also, those wrinkles on the corset! Liking them. :) 300 Lindens for an outfit that includes the parts shown and pants (with the boots attached???) seems a fair deal to me.

Blog342PS_1 copy

The…ummm…’handbag’!

The handbag isn’t a handbag but actually a piece of decoration that I abused for these pictures. Aki69 of Anc Ltd. has made this item and it is one of his rares for The Arcade. It is part of a furnishing/decoration set  called Butterfly’s Dreams and the items, especially this one, are so damned pretty! I love his textures, his attention for detail and his sometimes rather random ideas. :) This waterfilled, strange thing is called Sakurarium,  has 6 LI and probably is one of the most unique decor items I have seen in a long, long time. Definitely worth a good few of tries. :)

Kiss me once before you go! – NEWS from DRD, Luminary, B.C.C and more! :D

Hiya peeps!

If anyone had ever told me about HOW addictive Photoshop really is, I would never have started. This is actually fun. :) Been working a little on light and such, but yeah…it’s a long, long way still.

But, the outfit! :D

The crown!

This crown crafted by Augurer Resident for her store Luminary is SO pretty. I love its super fragile look. It comes in two colour variations and with matching shoulderpieces (not displayed). You can get it at the Final Fantasy Faire. I really enjoy how very light and royal it looks. Totally my taste! :D Please keep in mind that the lower part does NOT belong to the crown! The only thing that bummed me a little was that it is hard to adjust with hairs without the hair sticking through the crown, then again, that really is a minor thing. :)

Blog340PS_6

The dress!

When I went to the Seraphim Social Event I had the choice between various dresses and I loved this on by B.C.C (vitamingirl Resident) -instantly-. The look of this dress is very, very feminine and cute (it has a bow on its back!) and the textures look soft and flowly. I truly like this layer of almost sheer silk above the mainskirt! Also, which is always a big, big plus for me with dresses: It shows the feet! Which means I can display my sandals, too! I am often a little bored by dresses that cover feet, arms and everything and possibly even have the belt or whatever attached, it leaves so very little room to add your own style to it. Also, the price is LESS than 300 L which is truly generous and an instant buy in my case.

Blog340PS_5 copy

The wings!

I spotted these wings at Death Row Designs (Jaimy Hancroft) the other day when I looked for “mesh angel wings” on the Marketplace. And believe it or not, these were 100 Lindens. I think the price is insane for these kind of wings. Original mesh, pretty textures (in a ton of colours, too!) and an overall good quality for a price like that is pretty crazy. However, I wish the animation was better. You can choose between three types of speed (or turn it off) and I think the animation looks really clumsy. Though honestly? I don’t fly like…ever. And thus,  in the end I don’t give a damn about the animation in amazing looking 100 Lindens wings because I will always wear them in one simple position anyways. :) Instant buy for me!

My heart continues to beat – News from Truth, Lode, Mad Pea and more! :D

Hiya peeps. :)

I found some really cute things the past days. :D So, lets have a look! Truth released new hair! I love the two styles displayed, especially Tyr, because it looks really different from his usual styles. :)

The little dude!

That little guy with the hilarious face on Arica’s shoulder is a Cupid by MadPea, designed by Jaimy Hancroft. The lil guy flutters around and generally looks incredibly cute. I loved him. He is part of a gacha at the Mieville Midway Event which I wouldn’t have heard of if I didn’t happen to know one or two people involved. I really wish they would advertise more, but it was a chore to find any LM. :( There’s a couple of gems there after all! The Cupid Gacha is at the Mad Pea stand and only is 50L per play and the little Cupids are the common items. Super cute faces and general look. :D

Blog338PS_1

The headpiece!

Chirzaka Vlodovic released this pretty headpiece for L’accessories. It is part of a gacha and a common item. I do think the price of 75L per play is a little steep, however, the fact that none of the available colours failed to appeal to me made me play it regardless. :) The presented color is called earth and imho matches a winter or autumn theme very well. I enjoy the texture on the berries a lot as well as the leaves. I do wish the petals would have been a little more natural looking, but overall, I really like this headpiece and given you’ll get a good coloration with each play (at least imho), the price is okay as well.

I wanna do bad things to you! On Gachas, News from Anc Ltd., Alchemy and more. :)

Heya peeps!

Today I wanted to rant a little. This is gonna be a long post, so if you onyl want to see pics, skip forward. :P Well, not necessarily rant, more like lay out my thoughts….about gachas. We all know them, machines were you play and have an XY % chance to geta certain kind of item. There are common items and rare ones, sometimes even ultrarare. The Arcade is THE gacha event and the one with the best reputation by far I’d say. I blog for it and I am proud to support it.

Effort for price!

However, lately I noticed an increasing influx of gachaevents, or gachas even in normal stores or gacha-only stores. I am not sure if I like this development. Gachas are supposed to be fun, something special and for your occasional curiosity about testing your lack. In Japan, to my knowledge, they have been forbidden by now, haha. To me, they lost much of their wonder during the past 6 months or so. Gachas, gachas every-fucking-where. Excuse the language. I am getting tired of them. First of all I noticed a lack of quality in many gachas and an increasingly greedy attitude. I am not sure what you guys think, but for me to play an average gacha more than maybe 1 or 2 times, the price shouldn’t be higher than 50 Lindens, unless the item is amazing. And IF it is higher than that, the machine should contain (one of) the following and I will happily play the machine like crazy:

- skins/avatars/scripted pets
- very high quality items that require more work (think additional scripting etc.) than your average random little item
- each item, and I do mean the common ones as well, should be AWESOME
- independent items.Blog311PS_2

Gachas are NOT customerfriendly!

Why, you ask?  I think the vast majority of gachas are not customer friendly because: 1. You’ll more than likely always pay more money for a specific item that you want than with a normal vendor 2. Your inventory clutters up. It’s nuts. 3. The amount of yardsales for SOME events (and the lack of yardsales for other events) and competition makes it harder to get a decent amount of money back by reselling them. 4. Many gachas provide low quality common items or simple recolours and only the rare /ultra rare ones are truly interesting. These are the worst kind of greedy if you combine them with a price above 50L. Little effort for much money. 5. Often times gachas contain PARTS of an outfit. That, dear designers, is just god damned rude. Really?

Now, I often hear people say “But you always get items and the designer sells those for very cheap!”. Mhm. True. But first of all I don’t usually WANT those so either I am lucky and resell them, I gift them to friends or I…delete them. In 2 out of three cases it is a waste of money. Plus, the designer still has the item in their inventory. It is not like they gave it out for cheap. They gave out a COPY, a copy I didn’t want. I do know that gachas are a lot of work and it is very much appreciated, I always observe it when my friends work on them. But the insane amount of money people make at The Arcade and other events truly makes me deaf on those ears when I hear the ongoing “Gachas are not NOT customerfriendly. I give out my items for cheap.” Add to that that often times I wouldn’t pay much more than 50L for the item on a regular vendor either.

Conclusion!

So, summa summarum: I only play and support gachas by designers who put actual effort into their items. Given the fact that many people will likely pay much more than the item is worth that is something I expect. I am more than willing to pay 50, even 75L or 100L for a gacha, and plenty times, too!!!…if the items inside are a display of effort and care. The Arcade imho is the only gacha event where about 90% of the designers match my expectations, most other events have a good amount of real crap. Especially with gacha events, QUALITY should always outrule QUANTITY. I really would like to see a return of more normal vendors again. Ican’t be the only person who’d love to just buy what she WANTS for once again. :P

Now, on to positive things!

The mouse!

This mouse is from a…dun dun dun…gacha at The Fantasy Collective. It’s a gacha provided by Alchemy and a collaboration by Nina Helix and Tyr Rozenblum. One play is 99 Lindens, but this is one of the cases where I think the price is perfectly valid. ALL colors are awesome and the chance to receive a pretty, naturally colored mouse that sits normally on your head and is animated is very high. The nont so natural colours are super cute too! The textures on this one are awesome and I love the way it moves around on your head (or my shoulder in this case). The rares seem to have a fairly decent chance, too, given I played like 12 times and got 4.

The basket!

Aki69 Resident has made this really cute basket for for the event Enchantment, which will open soon!!. I LOVE the texture on this and I love the general shape. It’s a pretty unique looking basket which stuck out from the other ones available. Plus it has these cuuuute butterflies. :) The price of only 160 Lindens is super reasonable as well. It comes in various cute colours, so make sure to pick this up. :)

The hair (last pic)!

I blogged Milk Hair by Kattington Resident once before and I really like the new variations she is coming up with. This one is called Catching Mermaids and I really anjoy the long style of it with the gentle waves The texture is really pretty, too! I like her reds, they are actual reds and not a whole bunch of gingers. :) no tinting needed! The mesh looks smooth and wellmade. The only thing that made me go grumpy is that the hair doesn’t come for various boobsizes! At least not in the package I received. I think with styles this long that is really a necessary thing to offer.

I want you by my side – News from Truth, Enfant Terrible, Junbug and more :D

Hiya peeps!

It’s been a while, but well, rl has been taking over lately. Schools busy, but now I got 51 out of 88 exams corrected, yay. :/

But lets have a look at this outfit! :)

The hair!

I am gonna spare you all the praises on the textures and stuff. Instead, I am gonna point out that I have become a BIG fan of any hair designer that offers HUDs for colouring their hair. Why? because I am just so, so tired of the endless clutter in my inventory. Truth provides that and if I count correctly, each HUD provides 16 different options per hairpack. That is really a LOT OF options imho.  Also, a while back Truth implemented not only the standard hair, but also the ‘lovejugs’ options which come in two more sizes (so it is standard, lovejugs1 and lovejugs2) to go with your meshboobies. Any hair designer who doesn’t do that still IMHO really is a bit out of the loop.  Sizes to fit the hair to meshbreasts is a MUST have imho. I think with all that is included in his package, Truth really has set the bar high. Plus, I LOVE this hairstyle. So many styles with no bangs don’t fit me, they are too oval (LeLutka) or too broad (Clawtooth/Lamb/Exile), but for some reason, Truth almost always fits me. Love it!!

The stole!

I was SO happy for Juno Mantel when I heard she got into Collabor 88 with her store Junbug and I didn’t doubt she’d come up with something awesome for it. She didn’t disappoint. :) The furstole comes in various natural and unnatural colours and has a really fancy, golden clasp on it. It also comes in the five standard sizes. It is the perfect item for winter imho and looks very warm and cozy. However, I wish she had used some lighter textures and slightly less bright highlights to accentuate the shape. But overall, the look is really nice and I like the little detail with the clasp. :)

The shoes!

Good lord, I am such an idiot at times. I switched out the shoes while I was taking the pic, brown for red, but forgot to use the HUD to use the usual, plain texture on the socks. Heart-socks for the win! Ahem. I assure you, there are much more plain and better fitting options in there, haha. But LOOK at these awesome cute ballerinas SOON offered by Enfant Terrible for the upcoming round of Enchantment. :D They come in five colour variations and with a lot of different options for the socks. The ribbons on the leg are so very cute and I love the details with the bow and flowers. :) And I know they will be reasonably priced, too!
