By the Sea Shore...

A couple of weeks ago, Eden did a post featuring a lighthouse that she has out on her newly decorated land. Not only is it adorbs, but she filled it with the most fitting furniture ever. It's like the pirate fairies came in, and told her what to decorate with. She did a FABULOUS job. So, in honor of said adorableness, I had to take advantage ......and mooch off of her hard work! :D

I'd been wanting to find a good location to wear my frilly butted swimsuit, and this definitely fit the bill! Check out Eden's Post for all the rezzed items' credits! Until next time! ^.^

Once in a while, a girl just needs a milkshake. Flowey has the most adorbable milkshake dispenser at Collabor88 this round, so I just had to take advantage of its yummy-ness. Kat was busy studying, but I drug her along anyway. Of course, I don't think she minded. I mean come on. Milkshakes! :D

Retro Dinin'

The new round at Collabor88 is all about retro. Like 50's diner retro. I happen to love the 50's. I wish I woulda been around in the 50's cuz everything looked so cool, but that's neither here nor there. Anyhoo. Retro stuff always makes for some really great photos, so when I landed and saw all this fab 50's diner stuff, it was ON! I decided to include the fabulous Eden and Kat for this shoot, so they could show off all their new goodies from our shopping trip. Plus, we needed a rest and a food break after all that shopping. - Except me. I didn't get to rest cuz I had to keep bringing Kat milkshakes. *sigh*

Floorplan and The Loft have some great sets available to fill up your home (or diner), which include the table & chairs, the lamps, the posters, and the cute stack of coke bottles & table accessories. My dress (I'm on the right) is by katat0nik, adoringly called the "Diner Dress". It comes in a variety of colors, and is all hand drawn. That store always has the cutest things! Eden (middle) is sporting the new dress from The Secret Store. There's several different patterns to choose from, and the style goes perfectly with the new shoes from Hucci! Kat (left) is looking all "bopper chic" in the skinny slacks from Tres Blah, which are a very versatile style, and topped it off with the cute knotted shirt from Teefy. Both are available in multiple colors, and are extremely cute!
All in all, we had a fab time grabbing up all these goodies. When the day was done, Eden and I wound up having to carry Kat away from the table though. I guess I shoulda cut her off before that last one. ;p

Until next time! :D

5.7.2014: A Quiet Life, featuring TMD / TFGC / Culprit

She yearned for a quiet life and found just that on a secluded key. The land and the sea sustained both her physical and spiritual needs.
She rose early in the morning and often had no contact with another person save the occasional passing ship. Jip, her greyhound, was ample company.
She kept busy with her experiments
or her metal work as she might have to leave this place one day and return to battle.
But for now, she enjoys today.

Lighthouse: culprit: Wayfarer's Rest - inspired by the Mukilteo Light Station in Washington State: NEW RELEASE: besides being adorable this build has features galore - doors/windows open/close, working fire, ladder (usable by +1 avatars at once), adjustable lighthouse light, animations in tower top with smart menu that lets you know who is using what animation.  LI 57

5.4.2104: The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is Open!

I've been trying to complete this post for 2 days but my SL time in-world has been one thing after another. My apologies for getting behind. The Fantasy Gacha Carnival's May round started yesterday and the event is fantastic and HUGE.  I was able to get over there the night before it opened and the amount and variety of gachas there is just astounding.  The layout is basically round so that whether you turn left or right you will be able to make it through the maze of machines eventually.  There is a landing point inside a small building. If you walk directly forward when you land, you will be able to get away from that crowd and leave the building so you can then decide which way to begin.  I always go left because most people turn right :)
I've been trying to show a decent mix of items from as many designers as possible as the options of items there is so plentiful.  I fell immediately in love with the Japants from aii. I like to show off some skin but I still want to be covered up so these worked really well.  You can win them in several colors and the rare versions include the little hanging straps and beads off the hip.  I used Wimey's top from her Forests of the Orinoco collection which includes both tops and skirts.
I am enthralled with both the face tattoos as well as the face straps from Axix.  The realistic detail of the straps is quite impressive and I think they are just cool.  They come in several colors.  I probably did not fit this perfectly, because I'm just challenged lately, but I used Wasabi Pills Ingrid hair from Fameshed as it is gorgeous and was set back well to show the straps.  Wasabi Pills has hit it out of the ballpark with some of their new hairs as of late and I can't wait to show you what is also available at Fantasy Fair!

Hair: Wasabi Pills: Ingrid: available at FaMESHed for May
Skin: Glam Affair: Brandi
Face Tattoo: Axix: Morpheus Tattoo 1: available at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival
Face Straps: : Axix: Rare, includes color HUD : Available at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival

5.2.2014: The Fantasy Gacha Carnival: Black Pearls, Munereia & Bite&Claw

Well, only 2 more days until the opening of the May round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I am really happy about the fact that there are so many RP-related events as of late.  For a long time there seemed to be a distinct divide between fashionistas and RPers and I love the cross-over.

I'm wearing just a few of the wonderful items you can win at TFGC.  Black Pearls has a fantastic outfit named the Fallen. You can win it in either black or brown. The posture collar I have on is the ultra rare and if you are lucky enough to score that you get as well the complete outfit, tattoos, ankle/wrist warmers, cuffs and nipple piercings (not shown) as well as the rare face mask. All these items are fitted mesh so you will need the newest viewer to enjoy them!  Quite a prize for someone lucky! I chose to wear the Frilled & Furred Top (rare) from Munereia as I wanted to show you the lovely texturing job that they did. All of the items from this set are materials enabled. If you win the rare version it include a color change HUD.  Bite&Claw has a wonderful warpaint gacha planned for the event that includes 2 rares and 6 commons for only 25 L per play. Good times!
