I brought you butterflies on a pretty string – New from Magika and a dress by Schadenfreude!

Heya peeps!

I was tinkering for quite a while with this until I was happy with the outfit but now I am in love! I went for a very girly look this time with no weapons. πŸ™‚

The hair!

Sabina Gully has released new hairs for Magika! First, a friend said they weren’t as nicely done as her usual ones, but when she saw them on me she had to agree her styles are, once again, really cute! I love, love, love Magika#s hair. It comes in several sizes and the colourpacks are just SO very generous! You get a whole bunch of natural colours (basically a giant essentials pack) for only 250 Lindens, and they are tintable with a HUD, too. I have heard from many people that supposedly Magika hair is laggy. I cannot confirm that really, at least I never lagged any more with it than with any other hair on my head! Maybe I am just lucky, but her hair always seems to fit my head’s shape really well. This one is a really soft, low ponytail, much how I wear my hair in rl often when I am lazy. πŸ™‚ I love it! I think it looks very realistic and natural, plus: I really do like the many choices for red tones. πŸ™‚


The dress!

Schadenfreude is a brand by Allegory Malaprop who is very wellknown for her rather quirky styles and colorful designs. Her store is a huge elephant! Now I have to say I am really a noob and lack any sort of orientation. I always wondered where she had hidden all her items, since the elephant is -relatively- small and only contain a few newer items. Of course I failed to notice the roadsigns with the teleports…taddaaa! I went down and stumbled upon the Eala Dress which I recalled from Collabor 88 where I had forgotten to purchase it. It comes in a myriad of colours to pick from and costs 400 Lindens. That is a little pricey, but the quality you get is well worth it. I am personally really, really into this style. It had a big bow just above the butt and lacings that go up the back, which are tintable with a HUD. The whole design is very feminine and unique. I have not seen a dress like this thus far. I’ll make sure to show a picture of this dress from behind at one point, too! You really, really should check it out.

  1. Yes! The Magika hair looked much better on you than on me. But, that was an issue of my big forehead, not the hair itself. The pigtails, I wasn’t a huge fan of but the pony tail was very pretty!

  2. Love to read review about some piece of clothing (this time its a dress) but unable to see how it looks like because a blogger didn’t forget to wear 12312312 other items that not enough they do not match too well each other but also cover the thing that was so praised in a post.

    1. Point taken and since you apparently read my post you probably also noticed that I already mentioned I will show it off again in a better view. πŸ˜‰ So not sure why to point out the obvious?

      1. Maybe because for once i would like see the pictures where there is more substance than form. XD What do I care about what will be or will be not blogged in an undefined future. My comment is about this certain post/pictures, and to be precise, you promised more pictures of back side. Like.. um.. no front still? And. Come on, we all know you will wear again 1/3 of your inventory , enough to not see the said dress at all. XD

      2. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it? πŸ™‚ There’s always an easy solution for everything. πŸ˜€ Tastes differ, I don’t like uninteresting outfits for characters that contain….woohoo! A dress and shoes. You know, autumn and such. Not hot outside anymore. Plus, isn’t it cute that you post under some random name? πŸ™‚ Come ooon show us your awesome style!

        Plus, consider this: I cannot please everyone. πŸ˜‰ And I don’t intent to. There is a myriad of other rp blogs you can happily browse if this isn’t to your liking.

    2. The title of this blog is “Role-play styles.” Arica is known for putting together complete outfits in a creative way which a lot of readers do enjoy. There are plenty other blogs out there that serve the purpose of show-casing one or two items.

  3. Personally, I’d rather see the dress in the context of an outfit. The tagline is “Roleplay Styles” so you wouldn’t really expect individual pieces to be showcased by themselves, unless it was an explicit critique post (which it wasn’t). People (me included) like to see outfits put together, and different pieces used in different looks. They like to see what the item can look like as part of an outfit, and to get ideas for an outfit beyond ‘this is a dress – I can wear this dress’. Designers usually have pictures on their own sites or with the item on Marketplace where you can see the item in isolation – and the details of it.

    And if you’re really hell-bent on see the details up close and personal, you can get the demo here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Schadenfreude-Eala-Dress-DEMO/4143058

    1. Thanks, Oor, for expressing much better what I, and likely most of the readers here, expect. Plus: I am well aware who the complainers more than likely are, so it’s not really of huge interest to be perectly honest.

  4. The blog is clearly indicated as a “Role-play” style blog. Arica is known for putting together creative complete outfits. There many other blogs that cater to specific showcase reviews where the author/blogger specifically exhibits ONE or TWO pieces as the primary focus. Like Oor said, if you really want to see the item yourself, demo it.
