My love has been wasted – News from Peqe, EZ, Distorted Dreams and Tableau Vivant!

Hiya guys!

The Fantasy Collective started with another amazing round. This time the theme is oriental inspired and you totally should have a look πŸ™‚

The hair!

Last Hair Fair, I was looking at Tableau Vivant by M4r1lyn Magic more closely for the first time and, contrary to many fangirls, I was hardly impressed. Chunky mesh, stiff looking styles (even though the ideas were good!) and glossy, boring textures. So, when I saw Tableau Vivant’s hair at The Fantasy Collective today I FIRST was inclined to ignore it, but then picked it up and DAMN. He has improved so, so much. The vendor poster does not do it justice. The textures appear to be more muted and the mesh is truly pretty looking. Both styles offered are very long, feminine styles and I really enjoy how how it gently falls over the shoulders. This looks really, really good. There is ONE little thing that I personally would have made differently: The very ends of the hairstrands look very thick, I think if those would have been a little less chunky, the style would be even nicer. πŸ™‚ But I am liking it a LOT!


The headpiece!

Distorted Dreams is participating in several events by now and I have kept a close eye on that store ever since Ost Clawtooth pointed me to it. Epic Maidstone/DistortedDreams Resident have come up with this awesome headpiece for Genre. It comes in two color options of which I liked this one better for this outfit. πŸ™‚ I love the idea of this headpiece and I think it is a perfect addition for any kind of fae, druid or woodelven character. The combination of colours is really well done as well. The only thing that I think could be improved (but that is likely a matter of taste, too!) are the textures on the green parts: If those looked a bit more natural, I’d be in love forever. However, the headpiece is on my head, so I like it a lot. πŸ˜›

The staff!

This staff is a new release by Deccan Arida for EZ Weaponry. It is so, so pretty and I think he hit the nail on the head with his goldtone this time around. Not too orange and not too green either! πŸ™‚ I love the design of this item, even though the little strings all seem to defy gravity, but lets blame that on SL. πŸ˜€ Deccan has really proven by now that he can come up with truly creative items and this staff is a good example. Love the idea with the lantern, but I do have a feeling that a gold-staff this massive would be really heavy, so ignore my elf casually wearing it in one hand. πŸ™‚ Deccan also really has a good and precise eye for textures. I cannot find any fault with these ones, they are in fact beautiful.
