At the last moment

Standard

I was reading a blog and it mentioned a contest by coldLogic, to post flickr pics of the freebie dress they had given out some weeks ago in the subomatic. I figured it was too late to enter, but I visited the coldLogic blog anyways and no! I still had till midnight on the 30th! I can get my entry in! 😀

So I took some pics built around the three colors provided in the gift pack. Since there isn’t a one photo per a person limit, I made a few different styles. This is sort of how I play dress up most of the time anyways. Pick a certain item then cycle through different skins, hairs and other bits till I settle on a look that I think goes best.

Cold Logic is opening soon, and from the looks of the preview it will have a ton of mesh so it’s gonna be fun. The winner of the contest gets everything in the opening, so I have my fingers crossed! Lots of lovely pictures though, it’s always fun to see how people wear the same item in so many ways. Same thing happens with popular new releases and it’s fun to watch and compare styles.

I took too many photos (as always) and I stayed up super late to get this done…too tired to edit the rest right now. 🙂

So I’ll write up the other looks in a future post, but here is the composite pic.

Gypsy Market

Standard

Sometimes I get a bit carried away with photos, but it’s Sunday morning…what else is there to do. 🙂

My avatar is made up mostly of parts from red Mint. The skin is a new release from the Raw line. She has a strong face and a tummy toned by years of competitive belly dancing. It includes dark and light brows, bald or hairbase and a nail glove hider with prim nails for 1990L. Two makeup styles are available seperately or as a fatpack and there is a also pack of extras with teeth and cleavage.

The loose ponytail is also from red Mint, and the ropes are texture change and cute silver cat charms dangle from them. The nails are attached to the rings and bangles, they come scripted with several colors and with skin gloves matched in all the tones of the newest red Mint skins. The gold bangles have a HUD that lets you select from five jewely textures.

My outfit is the new Gypsy set from De La Soul. The basic pack has tops for male and female, a skirt,  fatpack of wrapped undies, a main fabric basics HUD and an accent fabrics sampler HUD.

So for the price of one outfit you get a fatpack of colors with bits you can mix and match, can’t find a better deal than that. Each HUD has ten textures and there are several other HUDs sold for main fabric, accent fabric or the tassels and coins fringe. It’s a neat way to package fatpacks, and the price is the same as a single outfit would be at other shops.

300L for the basic starter pack, 200L each for extra fabric HUDS. Fabric styles range from plaid, tie dye, stripes, dots to paisley. The textures on the outfit I’m wearing here are from the basic pack and the Leaves and Ruched addon HUDs. The textures are bright and beautiful, picking your favorite HUDs will be the hard part.

Bad Fairy – My La Venta Eventa Haul and new at Nomine

Standard

La Venta is one of my favorite events because there are usually quite a few items I like. What I usually do is pick up what I want and then not actually use it till some months later. Today I thought it would be fun to try to use all the items together and actually current as the event is going on.

Nomine has a bunch of new fantasy skins out. Dark fae, animal and androids for males and females. Like the previous fae release, these skins have two options for regular or constellation dots. I’ve also got on a pair of the eyes that is included in the android skins pack. The indigo lips on wildflower skintone went nicely with my la venta forhead tattoo from Plastik. The Plastik is giving five face tattoos in their pack, in regular and faded versions.

Mock put out a big pack of tattoos in pink theme. Makeovers, eyeshadows, lips, nails, blush and fantasy designs. All transfer too so a great gift for valentines. Nae from discord comes in an essentials pack and includes the tattoo hairbase. I’ve always liked the hole clothing line from A&M, so it was cool to see the bodysuit in black for the event. It covers all the important bits but leaves lots of space to show off pretty skins.

Material Squirrel is having a hunt for Starlight wings which ends on the 31st. Look all around the sim for small yellow stars, I was able to find 12. Olive Juice is closing feb 10th and is having a half off sale till then.

New at De La Soul – Glaive

Standard

I sort of have two outfits to show off today, one with the with the kimono and the other with the just underwrappings, the better  to see my sweet jewelry! 🙂

There are a few new releases at De La Soul and one of them is the Glaive Collection. I love it, ornate tiny details and a HUD with a ton of texture options. It has everything… headdress, anklets and armbands, bangles, a collar, ears, a basic tail (I tinted mine to match my skin tone a bit) and tail jewelry, mouth and nipple piercings. The jewelry is sold piece by piece for 100L-350L each or you can get the entire fatpack for 1500L.

There is a HUD included which will work with any of the pieces worn, so when I put everything on I only had to use one HUD to coordinate the changes. The variety of options is a lot of fun. There are 20 metal textures, 20 pearl textures and 24 textures for the spirals. The spiral texture is also used on the main band of the bangles and anklets. Most of the those are different colors of shiny metal but there are others too. A bumpy teal, some that look a bit like stone or tiles, a zebra stripe.

The ears HUD comes with a skin texture picker with 18 tones including greyscale and each tone has the option for plain or black tips. Everything is mod so it was easy to fit to my avatar, and though there are many tiny prims I had no trouble scaling down.

Another new release I’ve got on is the ponytail from Inaya, Shaddai . For 250L you get two versions, the normal behind the back style I’ve got on and also one that goes over the shoulder. There are also two hairbases incuded, one with a part down the middle.

The Jasmine skin from Curio is half off at their Truth District location. All their skins there are half off making the megapack of 12 makeups and 10 tones just 1500L. Such a good deal, especially for someone like me who changes skin tone all the time. They could have it like most places do and seperate their fatpack by tone. Usually I just try to pick a single tone, so I see it as a sort of gift.

My outfit from Bare Rose includes a purple or white kimono, yellow or grey body bandages, collar, hairsticks and shoes all for just 160L. I already had the red and black set and was really happy when I saw they were selling white and purple for ladies too. The boys got their white and purple before we did and I wasn’t sure if we’d even get that version. The wrappings leave one breast uncovered, so for the photos without the kimono I wore an undershirt, part of one of the strip dresses from The Plastik.

To give myself a bit of a geine look I wore two sets of horns from Rue, modded a bit to frame my headdress. This color is from the Nymph texture pack which is now exclusive to the inworld group gifts. The deep and lovely colorgow eyes from Ibanez aren’t on sale anymore but there are still several sets in the shop which are half off and 50L each.

Another of the new skins from Nomine, the cat eyes are included in a few different colors. I added a tail from Lemon Tea. It’s animated and pretty neat.

I got a new friend, a little Meeroo buddy. She’ll keep me company and help me get through those nights when the texture refuses to rez or when my viewer decides to take up crashing as a hobby.

FairyFly – New stuff at Nomine and Rue

Standard

I just finished watching “The Secret of Kelis” so I’m writing this through tears (yes this cartoon made me cry) but anyways, my outfit today has two new releases. Nomine has a bunch of new fantasy skins and Rue has released bug themed eyes in a ton of colors.

The fae skins comes in nine shades, each pack cost 500L and has the option for with or without sparkles. Most are in pastel tones with pearlescent shading, the darkest is a black tone with highlights the of an oilslick. Right now, the Angel tone is on the midnight mania board for free!

Rue’s newest eyes are bug inspired, and each pack has five colors plus prim eyes and special luminous effects for 150L. The pair I’m wearing today is in a special Moody Monday color pack  for 55L. There’s a free rainbow tone in the shop too.

My poses are on the Roses sold by G Field. The stand alone poses are dollarbies from Magnifique, there are ten hidden in blue hearts around the sim.

Vampy – some sales ending soon

Standard

I was going to go visit some gothic creepy castle sim but I ended up in the gardens of Costa Rica. I guess with a vampy as tan as mine is a bit of sun is no big deal.

This dress can be worn many ways, the corset can be made asymmetrical so that one breast is free or covered by a pastie. There is a long floor length skirt, a  short dolly skirt and a bloomer pants option. The sheer striped stockings and collar are included.

I’m wearing two colors of hair, one in the original coal and another is in light grey which I tinted red to match the outfit. Tinting kills the shine a bit so I wanted to show off both.

This skin is nearly covered in makeup layers but trust me, she is lovely on her own too. Just not so vampy…more pink. Her pink blush still shines through. It’s a free gift in the Heartsick group which costs 10L to join.

My snake nails manicure comes with a HUD that switches between ten colors, all in the snakeskin print. The earrings, ring and necklace from Bewildebeest come in gold or silver metal and nine gem colors all for just 20L. The whole thing. 20L. Oh my goodness.

I didn’t double check the LOD when I took the close up shot here, so there are tiny wires that aren’t visible. It looks even better in world and only 10L!

Fashion God

Standard

Twice in a row I take pics in church, what’s my avy looking for? Is there a patron saint of sales? I’ve got some of the new releases from Inaya and Likeli! Raakhee has a lovely rich brown skintone with bold eyebrows and pouty lips. The Shaheen hairstyle comes in versions with or without bangs and there are five hairbase tattoos to choose from.

There’s a half off sale going on at Jane and all the stores on the sim are participating. Got a few meshy things, yay mesh! Come to think of it, this church skybox is also mesh.

Now, some close ups of my pretty Ibanez eyes, the love necklace from Jamman in gold and some sandals from Nardcotix which is having a sale. The gems on the sandals are color change and the nailpolish is one of the add on packs sold seperately.
