Pure Juice Photo Contest Winners

April 5, 2011

Sending out a HUGE congratulations to Rylan Carling for earning the top spot in the Pure Juice Photo contest! Of course, kudos to Miaa Rebane and Marcillia Bumblefoot for their second and third place finishes, respectively.

And now, to toot my own horn (since it has never had the opportunity to be tooted before), the CHIC Management group was kind enough to find my greenhouse pic to be honorable enough to mention! Thanks so much, CHIC!

Pure Papillon

March 16, 2011

I’m sure y’all will be happy when I stop using that Pure Juice reference in all of my titles, huh?  LOL   After all the hype of the event, I finally had a chance to try on some of the comfy (read “more me”) clothes that were available.  So I settled down in my e! top and Republic flats and hatched me some butterflies!

Papillon Breedables are open!  And what does that mean to you?  Butterflies, of course!  The creators have been working SO hard on this release and are beyond excited to move out of beta and into real SLife.  And they should be.  They’ve put together such an extensive product.  I’m not big on breedables (buy the creature and then have your life savings sucked away in order to keep them alive), though I’ve had a bunny and a fairy and a horse- no chickens.  But I couldn’t pass up the idea of butterflies.  Don’t ask me why, I don’t know why, but I’m so glad I invested the time to visit the store and read all their materials and OF COURSE, buy some butterflies.  I picked up a Breeding Starter Kit for 199L that contained one male, one female, two plants and one beehive.  The butterflies are very easy to hatch, unlike some breedables that will break if you remove them from inventory incorrectly or if you touch them too soon before they hatch or birth or whatever.  The butterflies work like they should: drag, drop, hatch, butterfly, yay!  They are also fairly easy to control once you have them rezzed and hatched.  You can use their scripted menus or my preferred method, the Control HUD.  I didn’t love having to click on the butterfly after each choice made in the menus, so the HUD was much better for me, though for individual changes you’d have to use the specific butterfly’s menu.  The Control HUD came in a (currently) free box of HUDs and goodies.

And speaking of goodies…  Holy cow.  The creators have put together such a detailed experience for the breeders.  I won’t go into everything here, but let me say that the Papillon butterflies are somewhat of a cross between all the positive aspects of breedables and the fun and adventure of a good RPG.  Genetics and classes and bonuses (breed for that queen, folks!) that you’d get from that combination are placed in this wonderful little eco-community of butterflies, plants and other insects- all with the possibility for adventure!  The thought that went into this little ecosystem is amazing.  There are plants that feed the butterflies in different ways, gardening supplies to help maximize the productivity of those plants and accessories that have various effects on your garden.  My two favorites are the beehive and the psychedelic shroom.  The beehive (this shows some of the detailed thought that went into the creation of this product) has bees, obviously, that go out and kill spiders in your plants so their webs don’t harm your butterflies.  The psychedelic shroom improves your chances of breeding rare or mutated babies!  How fun is that??

I’m getting a little long winded here, but I want to say one more thing.  The accessories and gardening supplies and plants were all created to help your butterflies live and grow happily with the least investment possible.  There’s even a type of plant that increases in value and productivity the longer you own it – and the market for reselling has already emerged.  So buy some butterflies, breed some butterflies, enjoy your butterflies.  You won’t spend all your Lindens because it’s not necessary.

Pure Juice – Peqe

March 10, 2011

Inex Hax’s Glanimal collection for Pure Juice isn’t for the faint (prim-)hearted. I’m not doing it any justice here, but I spent so much time trying to get it to fit right, I just had to snap a pic and post it anyway. The polar bear inspired dress has a wonderful texture and makes for dramatic photos, but I had a very difficult time wearing it. This is not a prêt-à-porter dress if that’s what you’re looking for. It is a dress best saved for those amazing folks who can manipulate prims and take inworld shots like pros. (I would NOT fall into either of those categories.) So despite my determined yet increasingly frenzied attempts at fitting this confection of a dress, I was ultimately unsuccessful in pulling it off. Ah well, another day, another Glanimal. Maybe I’ll have more success with the zebra.

Purely Pretty

March 6, 2011

I was working on a new profile pic and decided to toss it up here to make sure that everyone knew about the Pure Juice event going on.  It’s a collaboration between CHIC Management and Juicy sims to bring some fun and fashion into our blah winter (almost spring?)  days.  The event features exclusive items from designers around the grid and will be open until March 26.  So head on over to the Pure JUICE venue, pick up some great new items and enter the Flickr photo contest!

I decided to share these raw shots from SL so you could see how gorgeous the Lara Hurley skin is.  I’ve never worn one of her skins before, but I’m absolutely in love.  I’m not a skin reviewer by any means and I’ll tell you honestly that I haven’t even gotten naked to check out the bits and pieces or anything.  But the skin and the lips and the features…  I just love it.  Of course, Aiko is wearing some lovely pink makeup to fit with the Juicy theme, but the lashes aren’t her’s, they’re from Cheap Makeup.  I’m also wearing the Endless Glam Ensemble from Mood, which comes with a great HUD to change the colors (all pinks, of course) of the rings and the metals on the earrings and bracelet.

All the Juicy Details

March 5, 2011

It’s almost time!  The highly anticipated Pure Juice event is going to open in only… 24 short minutes.  You won’t be able to get in until then, so don’t bother going to the Juicy sim until 4pm SLT.

I’m typing fast so I can get one more preview post in before the masses head over for their dose of Pure Juice.  All the hype (that could have been entirely in my head) annoyed Chloe a little bit, so she’ll be sneering at us in this post, her expression contradicting the sweetness of the pink makeup on the exclusive CandyDoll skin.  I HAD to blog this skirt and top combo because it’s named after me (yeah, right!) and is really cute and simple and easy to wear.  My Maitreya Golds on the other hand…  ugh…  They gave me some problems today.  I love ‘em, but I hate matching skin tones.

So there you have it.  Enjoy the event, spend lots of lindens, these designers made all these lovely things just for YOU!  Yes, they did.  I swear.

More Juice

March 5, 2011

I was just informed that the Pure Juice event doesn’t open today until 4pm SLT.  And while that really sucks that you’ll have to wait that long, it means this is still a preview post!  Woot!  Go me!  LOL

Anyhow, I was going to do a shiny-sexy-alien-takeover something, but I wanted to get this out this afternoon, so I scrapped it.  It was the fun little sleeves and the shading on the ViLada dresses that took me to space, so I popped on some metallic eyeshadow from a.e.meth and my platinum Gos booties to go with the flow.

Primrose and Grapefruit Juice

March 5, 2011

I was supposed to be highlighting items from the Pure Juice event that’s starting today, but I got distracted while playing with windlight, shadows and depth of field.  Cool Beans’ sweet little dress and pumps were adorable (though the dress was a little too lingerie-feeling for me) but got a little overshadowed by Ulaa Coronet’s Primrose Weathered Greenhouse.  The detail in the textures and the construction are absolutely perfect.  I live on a beach, so I took the pics inside one of  Turnip’s skydomes, but this greenhouse is really making me want to move to a wildflower filled meadow somewhere.

So here are a few of the many pics I took.  Like I said, the quality of the greenhouse made me want to take snaps from every angle, the wood looked so beautiful and real, the vines hanging out front were adorable, the glass roof made delightful shadows on the floor…  Okay, okay, pics.

So.  Head on over to the Juicy sim and check out all the wonderful items have been designed just for you and the Pure Juice event.  Do it.  Nao.

Pure Juice

March 5, 2011

I don’t know how you bloggers do this all the time.  I spend far too much time styling, posing, shooting and editing to get anything out in a reasonable amount of time.  These are supposed to be preview items here, Chloe!

Anyway, I really enjoyed these dresses from Riddle.  Simple and sexy.  A bit of pink thrown in for that little juicy something.  (And I got to play with all the color options on my Gos Curvaceous boots.)  The Rockberry skin is too sweet as well, featuring Kalista’s Juicy Pink lips for the event.

Purely Ecru

March 3, 2011

We’ve got a twofer this week!  I’m covering both the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge and the upcoming Pure Juice event, brought to you by CHIC Management and the Juicy sims.  Two birds with one stone, right??

Before the pic, I’ll tell you a little bit more about the event and the featured items.  Pure Juice is a fashion event featuring well-known creators and some hidden gems that have that Juicy flair.  All items are exclusive for the event running from March 5 – March 26.

Ecru might not seem very juicy to you, and this sweet little La Estrella dress may be the last thing I blog from the event that isn’t pink, but it was the perfect way to combine my posts (and I’m lazy, so it worked out well for me).  Now, I’m not the best at manipulating prims, and I don’t have a skinny-minnie avvie, so I had some trouble with getting the best fit, although I SO appreciated the belt and skirt being separate.  The prims are also a little darker than the rest of the dress, but it wasn’t nearly as noticeable on the grey and black versions.  Overall, I think it’s a really cute dress and I love the design of the skirt, so I’ll definitely be wearing the black one in the future.  A girl can’t have too many LBDs, right?  And it’s still winter, I needed a wool one.  Really.  I did.
