And then the sun goes down – News from Mina, Remarkable Oblivion and more! :)

Hi guys,

I hope you all have been well? :D I am pretty good but damned busy. WE LOVE RP is starting again and I switched the parcel over to winter. Aside from all the event stuff rl has been really busy and my bf talked me into playing some more WOW again, and I am actually having fun on my warrior tank. :) Aside from that, I usually fall asleep when I hget home because lately I feel extremely exhausted.

The Arcade has started and I wanted to get this post earlier but alas, I slept most of the time during the weekend because I am sick. Yay. Oh well. :P Lets see what my avi is wearing! :D You guys REALLY need to check out the new, flat boots by Just Design at Fameshed! Truth just released new hair at Uber!

The lyre!

When I saw Remarkable Oblivion’s (Nimvade Resident/AxsisThorn Resident) items for The Arcade in my inventory I sqeed. I had seen the previews already on Flickr and they looked SO gorgeous. Imho RO really has set the benchmark high again. Look at those gorgeous metal textures on the bells and the lantern (on the dog’s nose!). They look extremely realistic.  The overall textures on both these items are so very pretty and the colours really well chosen. The small details on these items are amazing. Also, the animations on these items are really nicely done and they are resizeable. One play is 100 Lindens, but keep in mind that with EACH play you get awesome items in this case (the lantern and the lyre are common items!) which you can actually USE in role-play ( a bard, anyone?). They won’t just rot away in your inventory like so many other items we buy at gachas. :D

The hair!

Mina Nakamura of Mina Hair was accepted into The Arcade and that is sooooo very much deserved. Mina has been working hard to improve her meshes and textures and the results are showing! This style is very pretty in my book. It is a long style with a tad bit of a messy feeling which is very cute. I LOVE her textures, they look very realistic in my book. I do wish she’d possibly change her light blondes a bit, they look a tad bit grey to me. I love that her hair comes with both materials enabled and with no materials. The detail on the materials enabled styles is insane. 75 Lindens per play is a reasonable price for hair especially when ALL normal hair colours are common items. Only the essential pack and special (pastels etc.) colours are rares. Very cool!

A glimpse at a different world – news from Entwined, Fashionably Dead and more. :)

Hey peeps,

been a busy bee and created a new outfit. :) I am not sure how I could miss this pretty amazing skirt at Collabor88 by Fashionably Dead but I am glad I got it now. :P The Secret Affair, Genre, Kustom9 and The Liaison Collaborative started today! Nore more talk, lets see what my avi is wearing!

The hairs!

Short hair by Truth! Well, not super short, but somewhat shorter than what we usually get! Plus a really cute braid and an overall tousled look. This hair totally made me think of Arya Stark for some reason. Wish Truth had released it earlier when my characters hair was short for some time. :D Really cute and unique.

The second hair is a new style by Entwined (VivenMarli Resident) for The Secret Affair. Nowadays all her packs come with a normal and a smaller version and she also refined her meshed a lot. Her first hairs still had chunkier looking strands, so imho she really improved there. :D Personally, I always think that hairs that look a bit ‘windblown’ are awesome for pics (such as here) but at the same time can look a bit unrealistic while worn casually. In this case however I feel the ‘flying’ and loose strands are done subtly enough to wear it all the time. :) I already mentioned in an earlier post that I really enjoy her textures, they are very pretty. I hope soon there will be alphas/hairbases included! Go get this hair at The Secret Affair!

The skirt!

Like I said, I wondered how I could forget about this skirt by Fashionably Dead (Toast Bard) at Collabor88 I saw it at the previews and wanted it badly, then forgot. Ugh. Went back and picked it up in two colours without demo-ing. Naughty me. And, I am happy! The skirt is a bit transparent as you can clearly see ont he pic, but I like that. It’s not too much. The texture is smooth and pretty, very much making it look like a very silky, light skirt. :) I love the belt on it and the way it sits on the waist of the avatar, even though that means having to find tops that will fit can be a bit harder. Another big plus is that the skirt shows the feet and even some leg, so your shoes/boots aren’t wasted. :) The price of 188 Lindens is really fair for this skirt and one of the ten colours available will surebly be to your liking! I can only think of one small thing I’d have wished for: A version with no belt. The only thing that I noticed, which I also thought was odd, was the fact that a tiny piece of my bum sticks out when I sit (follow this link for a bum-pic). Due to its sheer texture, there is no alpha and I am not even sure if this CAN be fixed. I am whining on a very high level though since I only reallly noticed it  while camming and inspecting every corner. So for me? This skirt was a total no brainer.  :) Love it.

Be my friend? – News from Ryvolter, Pixicat and mooore. :)

Hey peeps,

it’s that time again: I am blogging and sneezing my nose off. Seriously, new record today: 21 sneezes in a row. I think my nose is gonna fall off for real now. Also, my week was extremely busy, one could say it was really shitty. But hey, no more whining. The next week should be better. :) On the bright side, WE LOVE RP started and the designers came up with a lot of awesome, new releases. :)

Lets have a look at what my avi is wearing!

The top!

You cannot quite imagine (okay, maybe you can?) how much I cheered when I saw Pixicat’s (Areve Resident) release for WE LOVE RP! It is a leather vest that comes with an undershirt (the undershirt has ruffles!!!). The top costs only 150 Lindens and comes with a HUD to change the colour of the blouse-layer. The leather-vest itself comes in various colors, each one combineable with different colours of the blouse. I really enjoy the textures on this item as well as the really unique look of it! The leather looks awesome in my book. Also, I usually get slightly annoyed when designers apparently seem to think that we all set our boobies to 15 or something. This vest can be worn with the slider set at 50 too. :) Not to mention, the buckles at the sides and the laces at the front as well as the ruffles add quite some awesome details to this item. :) Must have in my book!

The skirt!

This skirt by Ryvolter (Sanya Bilavio) is sooo perfect for roleplay. It has just the right length to show off your boots while still looking modest enough to work for a lot of settings if combined well. The top part is tight enough to fit several belts around it. I don’t think this skirt will work well with most corsets however most of the vests I own seem to layer quite easily with it. :) I love the shape of the mesh, especially the thick wrinkles combined with the very nicely done texture. It look very much how I’d imagine a skirt made of thicker, old leather to look in real life. :D I think we are all aware that Ryvolter isn’t exactly an unexpensive store, however this skirt is well worth its price given the many options it gives you to mix and match with other items. :)

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.

Blog402PS_2 copy

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.

Lady, you lost your hat! – News from Truth, Remarkable Oblivion and more! :)

Hi guys!

I am so happy, pretty recently I received one of the coolest compliments about my blog. :D The person said, that she loves reading my blog and that reading it feels like having a chat with a friend over coffee. :) I was SO flattered when she said that, because it is one of the nicest compliments ever so far. :D Also, I am super happy that Entwined now will be adding smaller versions of their hairs to their packages! :D But enough gushing! Lets see what I am wearing. :P

The hair!

Eeeeeeep, Truth’s releases for The Mystic Realms Faire are SO gorgeous. He released three styles of which I am featuring two in this post. :) The first one is called Thalia, the second one is Neria. I am SO happy to see him making some wilder hairs again :) My absolute favourite one of these thre eis Neria, the style on the second pic in this  post. I love how long it and and I love the many, many loose strands. :) Thalia is a style I personally imagine being worn by a sorceress. It looks wild yet at the same time very fitting for a woman who puts a lot of effort into getting her hair done. I am not gonna repeat myself about Truth’f textures here, but let me say this: I am really, really fond of his light blondes pack, I think the tones are VERY well chosen. :D

The hat!

Look at Wurfel’s new hat! It’s a new release by Remarkable Oblivion (Nimvade Resident/Axisthorn Resident) for the TAG Gacha Event and it is SO awesome. RO’s textures are always awesome, there is no need to point that out imho. This hat however is really, really nicely done plus also useable for role-play. Imagine you play a wizard or sorceress of some kind. The hat is PERFECT for these roles. I noticed it is also really easy to downside and adjust to your head, also big enough to cover most hairstyles (I tried it with Thalia) which is often an issue with many hats. So if you fancy playing some sort of mysterious witch/wizard/sorcerer or something along those lines, this hat is definitely a must have. Not to mention, there are other hats in that gacha as well one of which has a HUGE eye where this one has a cross. Love it. :)

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. :)
