Nomine Magpie Skin and a TOSL

July 17, 2011

Oooooh!  Newness!

Munchflower Zaius has just released her new Magpie skins at Nomine and they are absolutely lovely.  They still have that Nomine feel to them, but she’s redone a lot of the shading and redrawn the lips completely.  The larger packs (that I had to buy, I couldn’t pass it up!) have makeup, cleavage and teeth/no teeth options included, while the small packs feature one skin and the associated options.  I had to have the sexy Carbon makeups for the China skintone, and I’m wearing the “light” version with my ever-present Cheap Makeup lashes.

The layered tops are from Acid & Mala and are featured in Week 55 of A Taste of SL (follow the link for info on this weekly event).  Once I got the prims adjusted (I swear I’m putting Chloe on a diet!) I was able to take a look at all the great details on these shirts.  My absolute favorite was the shadow baked into the prim tie for the halter top.  Soooo cute!

Annnnd, my hair!  The Hair Fair is over now, but I sneaked in on the last day and grabbed one of Lamb’s short styles.  All of the styles you saw at the fair should be in each designer’s main stores now, so don’t worry if you didn’t make it in time.

52 Weeks Of Color – Denim (or Holy Crap, She’s Back)

July 4, 2011

 

 

I’m only a month behind on Luna’s Color Challenge!  I know, I know, it’s pathetic, but what can I say?  I’m back.  I’m going to be catching up on a handful of things in the coming days, so forgive me if I seem a little disjointed.  I have to get through the last few colors (jade, mahogany, mauve and electric blue) of the challenge, give credit to some great review copies I’ve gotten lately and make myself a new blog header, getting to the Hair Fair – among other things!

So I went simple for Denim.  Jeans.  And that’s it.  Sooo sexy.  I think my opinion of this look goes all the way back to Cindy Crawford or some supermodel in a black and white tv ad in the ’90s.  lol

And Dark Mouse.  What  a great jewelry set!  I’m wearing some the goodies Mouse sent out for June, so yeah, I’m late on that too, but better late than never, right??  The Waves and Sun set is great for all summer, so go out and get it!

Elymode @ Culture Shock

May 16, 2011

Here’s what’s truly shocking:  Culture Shock is still going on!  If (somehow) you haven’t heard, Culture Shock is a collaborative effort between CHIC Management, Modavia Productions and more than 150 designers benefiting Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders.  Keep your eyes open for the exclusive Culture Shock items at each store, 50% – 100% of the profits for those items will be donated to the docs.

The donation item I’m wearing is the new Vita dress from Elymode.  Elysium Eilde stepped out of her comfort zone on this one and it was well worth it.  The prim portions of the dress were easily resized and adjusted (even for me) and they make for incredible details on Ely’s already amazing work.  I ended up channeling a little of Ely through the dress and her Windlight settings and I took a lovely, unedited shot in SL.  (No, that’s not an insult, the pic just feels a little…  fantasy and pretty to me.)

I’m still fighting with shadows, so unfortunately you all have to deal with me experimenting and bitching about the failed trials.  I hate this glaring light that I can’t seem to get rid of.  I hate that I had to reduce the size of my inworld snapshots so I don’t get crazy lines all over.  I hate that my shadows used to work flawlessly and now they don’t!  LOL   Anyway…   There is some more Elymode in this pic, a Vita variation and part of the Lazy Day gacha items she has at the store for only 50L.  This is a group exclusive color, but the others are equally adorable.

Edited 3.17 :  I’m using the second pic as my sorry excuse for olive in the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  I know, I know, I’m pathetic.  But I’m so far behind!

52 Weeks of Color – Tangerine

May 12, 2011

I’m really late for tangerine.  I’m almost late for olive.  I’ve been having a helluva time with the technology surrounding SL and taking photos inworld.  So, again, I’m giving y’all a less-than-spectacular pic, but damnit, it’s got shadows.  LOL

I pulled out an old favorite in a bold color for my tangerine and paired it with some cute shorts I got at the Gacha Festival.  And this messy pony from fri.day…  I don’t know when it originally came out, but I haven’t stopped wearing it since I picked it up the other day.

52 Weeks of Color – Periwinkle

April 28, 2011

Periwinkle was not an easy color.  I didn’t have anything in my inventory that suited the version of blue that I had in my head.  Then I would have loved to put something together that would be a fitting tribute to a poem written about me, but I couldn’t do that justice either.  So I went with simple instead.

And let’s not forget to mention Culture Shock.  The Exile hair I’m wearing is one of the exclusive items that Doctors Without Borders will receive proceeds from.  I picked up this sweet little sundress there too (but I’m honestly not sure if it’s new for the event or if you can pick it up at the store, sorry).

I’ve been feeling pretty faded lately, and I think Chloe’s looking a little sad and vulnerable in the pic, so I guess it is a bit of a tribute to the poem:
I always preferred
midnight to navy in a box of sixty-four.
She chose periwinkle, powder, cornflower,
her colors pale and fading.

Blogger Subculture Challenge

April 22, 2011

So…  I finally got around to finishing the Subculture Challenge!  Sileny Noel put together a huge list of subculture groups from which she picked two subcultures for you based on the numbers you chose.  I ended up getting Geek and Psychedelic 60s.  I haven’t had a chance to get to the Geek yet, but I channeled my psychedelic (late) 60s self and put together a little something.  I imagine it’s not quite a classic psychedelic 60s example, but it’s MY example.

Nothing new for this post fashion-wise.  I’m wearing one of the many colors from my Reek fatpack of bikinis, a newer Mynerva skin, my beloved prim feet (though they gave me fits trying to color them for this), my pixie cut from Elikatira and the sweetest little open mouth from Tuli.

I did get a little “ambitious” and put together a little body paint for myself on a tattoo layer.  I also made this pose.  And while I really enjoy doing it, I am not a posemaker and I have such a difficult time with the body mechanics.  So anyway, I made it and I’m proud of myself.  So there.

Feathered

April 17, 2011

Something old and something new.  But no blue.  Just feathers.

Angel Susanti just set out her new Feather Fairy set on Friday and it (by her own admission) is a bit more mardi gras than fairy.  So I cut down the accessory list and wore only the wings, hairpiece, bracelet and anklet and think it’s just feathery fun.  I’ve always loved my freckles and the open mouth tattoo options are making their way up my list, so I was so excited to find both of those options for the new Vackra skin, Ella.  I grabbed a hair from The Fashion Garret that is a little out of my typical style and it actually drove the feel of this whole pic.  And I found a new-to-me posemaker, Shades of October- very cute!  The feathers of the wings called to an old Fall Into Decay dress I had buried in my invvy, so I got it dry cleaned to wear for this post.  So, a little feathery, out-of-my-ordinary post for you.

Butterflies, butterflies, butterflies.

April 8, 2011

As anyone who knows me has noticed, I’m a little crazy for butterflies lately. The wonderful Papillon breedables are threatening to take over my sim (and my lindens) and now I have found a crazy dress that has them literally orbiting around me.
The SoliDea Folies Butterfly Circle dress isn’t a practical one, but it was SO much fun to photograph. And even the prim challenged like me will have no problem fitting this dress. As I was putting this look together, I kept having flashes of Galadriel from LOTR when she does her whole “not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the morn” thing about the One Ring, so I had to go get some hair that matched that image. This amazing Irena hair from Vita’s Boudoir was exactly what I was looking for. Expect to see this hair again because I plan to be in the wind or the water a lot from now on, just so I can wear it.
