The Arcade Preview – LARK! – Presented by the deranged Sorceress

Heya peeps!

As you all surely know, there are only three days left until The Arcade starts again. I can say one thing for sure. I will storm this event. I have gotten to see a couple of previews already and I fear most of my money will be spent by September 1st. UGH! But oh well, the creators I will pay certainly deserve it. πŸ™‚


The books!

DO you see these books? Sienia Trevellion of Lark most certainly has outdone herself for the Arcade with her Imaginarium Librarium. She was SO happy to be accepted into the event and damn…this shows some real damn effort. When she sent me this preview, I was quite simply baffled. These books are cute, creative and funky. I can imagine them in any kind of library in a Harry Potter or fantasy sim. I love, love, love the textures. The LI is okay with 2-3 for the books. But do you SEE these funny designs? Books with little windows, roots around them, a book with a hidden dagger, books that are bound with a lock? Seriously, I was always looking for some fantasy books for my parcel, now I got them!

But wait, there are prizes in that gacha! The board I am using in this picture is one out of five colours available of which one (wheat) is the rare one. Also, the book with the flying pages is a rare one as well. Evil, is all I can say, because the book with the flying pages has readable text on it. πŸ™‚ It is super, super cute. So, don#t forget to play this machine at The Arcade. πŸ™‚

As you can see, something went wrong for my sorceress!


The horns!

Silverr Andel of Sterling Artistry is mostly known for his eyes Hint, hint: He started making mesh-eyes now, too! I stumbled upon his store again after quite some time and I think his items have improved greaaaatly. I found it through a Hunt, The Seasons Palette Hunt and I couldn’t resist to buy these horns, even if the normal size is a bit big for me. You can however resize them. πŸ™‚ The horns come in several packages and each packages comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from nine textures for the horns and nine textures for the metal. I really think these horns show great attention to detail. I love the little chain dangling from them!! πŸ™‚

Something went very, very wrong, but…It wasn’t me! I swear!


The belt!

Deccan Arida of The Forge has released this Boadicea’s Belt a while ago already, I only now got aroudn to have a really close look at it and I must say, I am impressed. The design is very complicated, intricated and creative. Guys often have a bit of a problem finding JUST the right style for girl items, but Deccan has proven to be rather creative in this regard. πŸ™‚

The belt comes in four different versions: Silver, bronze, gold and multitexture. Multitexture allows you to tint pieces of the belt independently from one another with a HUD. The best thing is though? Despite being a belt, you can use it as a bracelet, legband (I did that!) or even as a necklace, so it is super cool for various kinds of styles. πŸ™‚ The textures are very pretty as per usual, but you guys already figured I am a Deccan-fan anyways.

So, here it what you see in the picture! πŸ˜‰
