I’ll meet you there – News from Seul, Truth and more! :)

Hey peeps!

Here we go again, I put together an outfit and am going to tell you now where you can find all these pieces. :D WE <3 RP started and this week has been hella busy for me, but I personally am really happy with this round, already working on two new outfits to show you guys. :) Lets take a look though!

What’s my avi wearing right now? :D

The skirt!

Man, my heart made a jump when I spotted this awesome skirt by Seul (Vo Pralou) at the current round of Uber. I am such a giant sucker for hi-low skirts and this one instantly caught my eyes. It comes in seven colours and costs 350L/colour. That’s not exactly cheap but still a reasonable price for a skirt like this. I really enjoy the textures on this item and I LOVE the shape of it, especially the layering at the front with the parting fabric. I noticed that I could easily combine this skirt with various tunics and shirts, as long as they got a bit of a flare at the bottom, because this skirt does sit quite high on your hips/waist. Very cool item for mixing and matching and if you don’t care to do just that, it also comes with matching tops! :)

(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!

Stay with me! – News from The Liaison Collaborative, Spirit Store and much more. :)

Hi guys!

You know what? Fever blows. Even with ~ 15 hours of sleep each night during the last 4 days or so, I still feel like crap. And looks like it’s not going away anytime soon, clearly likes me. Ugh. Anyway, took this pic a few days ago, then fell asleep. :P

Enchantment is opening tomorrow and dayum, so many nice items if you return with a full stampcard. :) There is a new event on the grid which is called Creators Collection Box and it it managed to make me feel enthusiastic again! It’s an event hosted by the asian community and I never saw so many asian names on my radar, I LOVE IT! :D So many awesome, unknown stores, I can only recommend you guys to take a peek there. Also, The Liaison Collaborative is open an has quite some awesome items to offer. Check out that one as well, I especially love shopping for poses there. :D

Stay with me!

The vest!

Yet another awesomesauce vest. You can find this one either today (last day…*cough*) at The Seasons Story or soon instore at Spirit Store (Spirit Osmus). I love the thick leathertexture with the furtrim and the fact that I could not spot any zippers or anything alike. It seems to fit well with many, many different skirts, pants and tops, though it sits a bit tighter than average, thus I recommend going a size larger if you layer it. In the pic shown, I am actually wearing size L. The vest comes in six colours and I think 211 Lindens is a very reasonable price for this. I only would have wished for a few more details, maybe some lacings or pockets? But it is a neat item for mixing and matching no matter what! :)

I don’t want to know! – News from Stitched, Lassitude & Ennui and more! :)

Hey guys,

and yet another post. :D The Secret Affair opens today and dayum, there’s some awesome stuff to be had there! Look at this awesome cloak by Stitched (Adele Bumblefoot) which just totally fits the wintery feeling on so many sims (and in rl!) at the moment. :) Love this, especially its awesome features (long/short version, hood showing/hidden). There’s much more to be had though, so make sure to check out the event asap! :)

I don't want to know!

The boooooots!

Eeeep, look at these boots! They must have been one hell to rig. :P They are currently up for sale at WE LOVE RP and are a new item by Lassitude & Ennui (Jackal Ennui) after I (and probably others too!) repeatedly begged her to make more flat boots. :D These are so, so awesome. I LOVE the idea of the laced up shafts on overknee boots, it just looks so extremely (wood-) elfy! I like the textures a lot even though I reallllllyyy hope that maybe one day she reads this and makes some suede textures too?! :D  They come as fitted mesh for the default avatar and fitted mesh for the Slink Body. Make sure to lower your footsize or you will have some awesome, big duckfeet. :) I heard a bird singing that once she has the time on her hands, she may just make these for the Maitreya Body too, so lets hope! :) I have tried various positions with these and couldn’t find any real issues with the rigging, even the lacings seem to stay in shape which is greaaaat :) And here’s the real craziness: They are just 180 Lindens /colour (6 colours available). That’s one HELL of a deal in my book. :)

My heart is so cold – News from Stitched, Fishy Strawberry and much more :D

Hey Ladies (and…gents? :D ),

I hope you are all good. :) I had a really tough week so far. Work is taking up a huge part of my life lately due to all kinds of appointments piling up around a couple of weeks. I am glad though that I got a new schedule which allows me to go to the gym more often again. :D Aside from that I also worked out a blogging schedule for me that SHOULD work better. lets hope!

First of all, gasp! I am a bad, bad blogger. I am blogging and OLD, aaaaages old (By modern SL standards!) hair, released by Tableau Vivant at the Mystic Realms Faire during October. Well, I will admit this: It’s one of my three fav hairs of all time and I love it so much you will probably see it from time to time. ;) The other one is a very pretty, diva-esque new release by Truth and definitely something you need to check out. :P

The dress!

Well, this is a gorgeous dress by Stitched (Adele Bumblefoot). And I don’t too frequently use words such as gorgeous, fantastic, amazing etc. (at least I think so?) so when I use it, I mean it. So, why is this dress so gorgeous? First of, the texturing is so very pretty. The dress comes in a gacha at the Gorean Gacha and ALL colours available are really useful and well chosen. The red version is an uncommon item (not a rare! 50 Lindens per play) and thus chances are decent to get it. I think Adele nailed it with this silen texture. The highlights and shadows are subtle yet just strong enough to accentuate the dress really well. The belt is a really beautiful detail in my book. The shape of the dress (very slim!) allows you to combine it with all kinds of vests and capes which is perfect for winter. The rigging is really well done as well, even while sitting the mesh doesn’t break for me which is very often the case with skirts/dresses. Adele has come such a long way, so I am really happy to see something this awesome made by her. :) The ONLY thing, which is totally a matter of taste, is that -I- probably would have added a few ruffles to the very bottom. Then again, I am already happy this dress shows your feet. :D

The vest!

Tricky Button is a wise woman. She IMed me the other day and told me about this vest by Fishy Strawberry (Fae Eriksen) for Kustom9. I checked it out because Tricky not only wise but a woman of good taste as well, and well, she was right. This vest is perfect for mixed and matched outfits for autumn and winter. :) The wooly texture is really pretty and the shape of the vest makes it easy for us to mix and match it with all kinds of other clothes. The vest comes in various earthen/autumn colours and costs 199 Lindens, which really is a fair price. While the vest doesn’t impress with a huuuge amount of details, the smooth mesh, pretty textures and general flexibility when it comes to matching it with other things really score major points with me. :)
