These are a few of my favourite things part 2

Standard

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.

Wearing: 
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.

Wearing: 
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

Totally Unhinged

Standard

Today is the 15th and the last day of Unhinged, for a month now we´ve had this amazing event up, all made possible due to the help of a lot of amazing people, there was no way i could take pictures of all these people and stick it, but i wanted to show of these pretty poses from Exposeur, and these ladies where just handy and they also put in a lot of work into making sure this event happened, so i give to you all, Sonya Marmurek, Nephilaine Protagonist, Orcsy, Axi Kurmin and Chandra Masala.

From the start when the idea come up Eku had no surgery schedule the event and all the money made it possible for her to have it a week and half ago, and she´s already home already feeling the benefits from the surgery. All because of a lot of people, some in this picture but a lot more behind the scenes, from anonymous donors, to amazing creators, to pretty cool DJ´s and some awesome bloggers we got this event started, and going for a month.

I´m honestly lost when it comes to words to thank all these people, i´m actually lost i don´t think there are enough thank yous for everyone, And now we have just a few more hours left for the event to end and like when it started, there´s no right hour for the end, and everything will be up as the music keeps flowing and the people keep stopping by, so stop over, come and dance, shop if you wanna, or just hang out, and scream welcome at Eku as soon as she´s up.

And i´ll just leave you all to go and give both Eku and Yure a big virtual hug.

So if you love themed events, sign up for it.

I was also a White Swan over at Zombie Popcorn and without eyebrows at my The Ego Co. one my blog post Not so long ago as the 4th and last edition of Fluid happens, but don´t be sad because if one event ends a new one gets planned, and later on in September The Ego Co. brings us The Summer Harvest Hunt.

My Nasty Sins

Standard

The Festival of SIN is up since Saturday, I stopped by on sunday morning trying to avoid the lag that is usual during these events.
After going tru most of it slowly, and mostly camming about, I managed to do some shopping, and reflected about all my nasty and delightful little sins.
Greed is one of my worst ones, of course like most bloggers I want all the things my hoarding abilities extend from everything, clothes, textures, shoes…And i can´t be stopped. Halp!!!

Wrath, it comes and it goes, sometimes it´s understandable, sometimes it´s not warranted like everyone else´s. Aww poor man who faces a woman´s wrath.

 I can´t sing, I never could, i tried honestly, to learn but even years in a choir did nothing, it´s a gift I certainly lack, while others where naturally born to do it and I definitely envy them.

This is the one sin i give into daily, gluttony, one of my many vices is chocolate, I know, I know. I love it so much, I cannot stay away from it, so what I decided some years ago is, have a little piece of chocolate everyday, it doesn´t have to be big, but have it.

Ah, Lust! Don´t we all lust for that special someone? I love you Darwie.

I try not to be proud but sometimes it will hold me back from picking up that phone and saying I´m sorry.

Sloth and telly go so well together, sometimes it doesn´t matter what´s even on, sometimes it´s just background noise, others is perfect for a bowl of popcorn and some cuddling in the couch.

Visit the Festival of SIN open until the end of February Festival of SIN
