These are a few of my favourite things part 2


Some time ago i did a blog about some of my favourite shops over the past year, on that post you can find here: These are a few of my favourite things part 1 i talked mostly about skins, and of course a lot was left out, so today i bring you clothes and jewelry.

Now let´s talk about clothes, the advent of mesh brought a lot of changes to how we wear clothes these day, issues with standard sizes, templates and deformer where highly talked this year, most creators had to adapt and learn not also mesh but rigging, for some it was easier than for others, a huge amount of new shops came out, and a few won ground in customer preferences. I adore mesh clothes, system layers and even hybrids of both.

The amount of shops i usually wear here is quite big and it would be impossible to talk extensively about them all, so i´m gonna simply name a few of my favourites over the past year and talk maybe a bit more on some newcomers.

My favourites for blogging and regular wear this year where: MaitreyaGeometryBiloZaaraLeagueCracked MirrorErraticIngenueColdLogic, These of course are just a few of the many brands you can find in SL or my inventory, but basically the shops i end up wearing more here and/or inworld: But a few shops stand out for me this year as you can see on my next paragraph.

Shape: mine 
Skin: Belleza – Wynter Skin
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: booN
Dress: Volstead  – Empire
Jewelry: [HANDverk] – Beaded Leather Necklace and Earrings

It was pretty cool to see Glam Affair  start doing clothes and even more recently hair also, i can´t wait to see more clothes from them.

I don´t really do Roleplay in SL but Volstead  that started as an entry of clothes for a themed 20´s RP sim contest has won my heart and not only are the clothes gorgeous and some of my favourite of this year, but they work outside of RP environments.

Another two shops i´ve keep and eye on most of the year are Perception and 22769 – casual couture, Maggie started doing corsets and does some of the best shaped ones in sl due to her knowledge in corsetery in actual RL, and i´ve seen her work move well father away from simply corsets to a whole new array of products.

In the meanwhile the boys from 22769 can basically do it all it seems, they do furniture, clothes for both sexes house and decor stuff, there´s nothing they can´t do and they do it always with a smile, meaning Manu and Paco also get a prize for nicest creators in SL this year.

Shape: mine 
Skin: Glam Affair– Renee (My Attic)
Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 
Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer –  Eyelashes – Groomed
Hair: Truth – Sassy (My Attic)
Corset: Perception – Overbust Corset — Capricorn (Zodiac)
Necklace: Perception – Capricorn Horn Necklace (Zodiac)

Now jewelry, in RL i can´t wear earings, not for more than 15 minutes before the itching starts i don´t wear necklaces either because i don´t like things around my neck, but in sl i can and do wear all of those, this year we had a few newcomers i fell in love with like House of Rain, stores i already knew and wore like, [HANDverk]LaGyo and lassitude & ennui and the biggest surprise of them all  Maxi Gossamer who now makes some of their sl pieces available for you also in Rl, follow the link to see which models are available here.

Well that´s all for now, hopefully i´ll be back soon with another instalement of my favourite things this last year, see you all soon and have a glorious weekend

This place feels empty


I did these pics at least more then a week ago but only now did i get ready to blog them, i was planning finally a COLLABOR88 post, and also a big thank you to a few more creators who had just joined Unhinged, and who´s new releases at shops or just stuff i had away for future blogging fitted this post.

So today from the current COLLABOR8 i bring you the hair from LaViere, i´m in love with this hair colour atm slightly pinkier then my usual Wasabi Pills gingerbread tone, these fun dual coloured pants from BOOM, from an old edition i´m wearing the LaGyo earings, which i had waiting on inventory for some time now, and not from COLLABOR88 but from FaMESHed i have this Maxi Gossamer creation with plenty of colour options as usual all menu driven.

I was so happy when Damien Fate celebrating his birthday released for free this adorable friendship bear ( i simply ran to his shop and grabbed one then sent a copy to all of those on my friend list since they are copy and trans) perfect to had a lighter touch to the clearly emotional loaded Heart broken poses, a new release from Exposeur, one of the shops participating in Unhinged.

Two other shops featured here that also are part of the event are Geometry, where i got this lovely basic simple top, that  is available in so many colours and with a sheer version, the other shop i had never blogged before and it´s Scarlet Creative where i bought this amazingly simple but yet detailed prefab, i love it´s minimalist lines, mixed with a little bit of fantasy, and practical, I´ve been following Charlotte´s work for some time now, and it´s amazing the friendly, relaxed and also dedicated way in which she has embraced mesh.

Although this was to be a blog about missing someone someone, i can´t have sad words to write about any of the products in it, even while doing the pictures, the bear little smile and the soft light and shadows could not make sad at all.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and maybe a little bit more of sun over the weekend, i could sure use some myself.

A room with some view


Today i bring you guys not a view but a little safe corner, for colourful girly things, trunks for clothes and hat boxes from Culprit a gorgeous print, showing some leg from Cracked Mirror, shoes that string into a delicate silky bow from lassitude & ennui. Colourful walls and big windows by Zigana, a new Wasabi Pills classic hair, delicate and detailed jewelry, but all feels is casual in this place thanks to Exposeur.

These are the lazy days of summer where Vintage Fair takes up most of my mind, be it the pretty cute small trinkets and trunks from Culprit, or the cute gogo dress by Cracked Mirror, as usual  love bangs and a haircut that allows me to show of jewelry.

I also finally received the My Second Box samples for this month, and in it came these super cute and relaxed Exposeur poses, along with a couple pose, i didn´t get to see much of this past week Fifty Linden Friday tho, but i did get these LaGyo earings and wow the reflections on them are amazing.

Last but not least these gorgeous new sandals from lassitude & ennui for L´accessoires a brand new event that started it´s first edition this month, and so far loads of goodies in terms or shoes, hats and jewelry.

Hopefully later i can bring you some more goodies a new release and a beautiful scene, in the meanwhile in case you missed it i did another blog yesterday for The Hottie Cooterati experience, with a preview for Zodiac´s edition of Virgo that starts tomorrow, and you can find it here: Inner Calm.

How do you walk on water?


I do it barefoot and today i do it in a COLLABOR88 look and mood, because the 8th was yesterday and as usual it´s COLLABOR88 time, and the July edition made me scream and jump of joy, first because i love the event, second because this months edition is even better than last month´s, third because i see some shops i love have become regulars, and also a few new faces, and fourth i promised my friend Geni a makeover soon, and it came just in time for it.

And today i bring you a dreamy walking on water and air look in this gorgeous Schadenfreude dress, which i totally fell in love with as soon as i saw the preview on flickr, along with the matching shoes, which i´m saving for a later blog.

I was extremely happy to see Schadenfreude again at C88 and has a permanent participant, also amazing at this months edition is the jewelry, not only the Maxi Gossamer, and LaGyo i´m wearing, but all the other jewelry makers at the event that i will show of later.

The skin i´m wearing is also from the event and by Glam Affair, and i think it´s a must for any shopper who likes their skins, it´s a clean basic bare skin and i was really impressed to see it at the event, it´s so versatile and you can simply add on the makeup layers you wish over it, like i did here, with these gorgeous, whites by Pin me down.

Finally let´s talk about hair, and this one is a classic by Elikatira and one of her first mesh works, and since i mentioned hair, is everyone has anxious as i am about Hair Fair? It´s about to start, most specifically next Saturday the 14th, and i´m waiting as many anxiously.

See you all again soon with my usual shops that i like later and have all a good start of the week.

Fairies in the dust


Fairy Tales in 2012 is just ending and this is my last article on this amazing event that will certainly spark everyone´s imagination, as we travel to fairy land.

And like on the others before we talk about women´s roles in Fairy Tales and those same roles evolution, this time is for the fairies, the Fay people of old times, that used to be ugly little creatures, that would glamour (yes that was when the word was born) young men into their land thru their magic powers and offer them food so to keep them prisoners for years or centuries, they would also steal babies and do other devious things, they where powerful, to some point and incredibly feared, with kings and queens and constantly fooling the sight, and the many times the brain and heart of humans.

Slowly with time they stopped being feared and seen as cute little things nature associated and of the garden variety like if suddenly creatures who were as much feared as gods or storms became tiny birds for admiration, only later do we see them in Fairy Tales, even when these have very little Fairies at all in the fairy godfather role, where they are a poor substitute for the never existent mother, a powerless creature who basically offers advise, and who´s only role is to advance the story, and who´s only power is a move of a wand or a bag of dust.

Later on we see another twist of the fairy evolution, again thanks to Disney and mostly the image of Tinkerbell, they become miniatures, with butterfly wings and with a more infantilized look then before, or the middle aged clumsy woman who does her job only god knows how.

Oh i do miss the creatures of power of old times, instead of the more childish images of today, when Tales of the Fay where scary and of warning and very far from any form of Fairy Tales even older versions, where happy endings where rare and stories a lot more brutally honest.

So ignore my ramblings if you wish but don´t ignore this event, since there is a lot to choose from and not much time left to shop.

By the way earlier today before going out for a wonderful afternoon in the sun i wrote my first official Zombie Popcorn blog and for those interested you can find it here: I´m not a zombie but i do love popcorns.

Shine on me


I´m still doing and enjoying light summery pics, even if the RL weather is not seriously helping, it´s hot here but the humidity is thru the roof and sometimes the sun hides for days, so i seriously needed a glimpse of it in SL so i did these two pics, cause that´s all SL allowed me to do yesterday being it´s cranky old self.

So i bought you today this new Bilo dress for FaMESHed, in my favourite colour purple, yesterday i spoke about the amazing creators at this event, the regulars and the guests, and it was pretty awesome to see Bilo as a guest this month, since it´s one of my favourite shops for original mesh content.

I also bring you one of my favourite pieces of jewelry lately, this love necklace by LaGyo available for Fairy Tales in 2012, that is still up until this sunday and that i seriously recommend to everyone.

I also stopped at Analog Dog, last week since i haven´t been there in a long time, and was delighted to see they are working on mesh now also, this hair is not mesh tho, but i fell in love with it, since it´s so cute and romantic.

I´m also wearing again, and you will certainly see these more my favourite summer sandals by slink to go with their rigged mesh feet.

It´s all for now, later i do that boring tldr blog post of the month with all the news and basically blab about what´s up in my boring SL.
