Updos & Button Downs

Updos & Button Ups

Helllooo,

I wanted to do another double look, I’m kind of enjoying this, though Dolce is in need of some help. It’s funny how something gets released and becomes a MUST have for the rest of your SLife, a must have for me are 2 things, ‘Slink’ feet and ‘Slink’ hands, I know there are people out there without them, that may be because you have never tried them to see the difference! I never realized just how badly system hands look! Dolce doesn’t have mesh hands (or feet) yet, I’ll surely be getting those in the near future for her. Her hands are HUGE! and her ankles in system shoes… don’t get me started, I always have to cut her off at her feet! Waist up is the way to go for my poor lil alt, she could also use a new skin, but the main ”must haves’ are hands and feet so I’ll get around to skin later.

I think mesh body parts (mainly hands and feet) have really and truly revolutionized the Second Life avatar. When I think back to when I first started SL (2007), since then about every 6 months to a year, SOMETHING has been new that made me think “THAT’S GENIUS!” I remember when voice was new (THAT was fun) it was back in the days when I basically lived sandbox to sandbox and you’d hear everyone’s conversation and snicker to yourself, then freaked because you realized your voice was on as well…oh and sculpties! I remember thinking they were a godsend, now a days I wouldn’t dare brave the good ole sculptie, may they R.I.P. as far as my clothing is concerned. The latest that I’m loving on are the SL materials, I’m blown AWAY by some of the items I’ve seen, there is a flickr group for material ready products you can check out! I love oogling through this group in my spare time. Are there any material ready eyes yet? is that possible? I don’t see why not ….whenever they become available sign me up!

On the other hand….. I know lots of residents who just don’t care for ‘change’ in SL and hey to each his own! There is one item that I don’t think I could ever adjust to, that being mesh heads (not on a daily basis, I would wear one for a photo perhaps), I like to change my shape up from time to time and I love changing my skins, though I’m quite loyal to Glam Affair skins on Harper, I still get to change often since Aida is always releasing something new! With a mesh head I don’t like that I’d look EXACTLY like everyone else with the same head (it’s hard enough for your avatar to stand out). Now there ARE perks to having a mesh head with taking photos, buuuuut for the time being I shall pass. There ARE custom mesh heads out there, but they cost so much I don’t think I’d ever be able to purchase one without dying a little on the inside.

I feel like I talked way too much, but after all of that jibber jabber… remember to buy all things!

Happy Shopping!

Carnation (NEW @ The Secret Store & Cosmetic Fair)

Carnation

Got a bit of info to share today!

Firstly, Maylee Oh (The Secret Store) has hit us with yet another adorable creation of hers. ♥ Today she released this “Peplum Shirt’ it’s elegant, it’s adorable, it’s stylish. Everything a girl could want in a top. I fell in love with the floral texture, but there are more textures of course! There are patterns and solids and the solids come with 2 more collar color options, also on ALL of the tops the belt is texture change! I grabilla’d and link the top color options and the belt color options Peplum Shirt Contact Sheet & Belt Colors Contact Sheet (LM for mainshop below)

Next I want to inform that Cosmetic Fair ‘Summer Edition’ opened yesterday and Glam Affair is participating, and made a HUGE variety of lip colors for Cleo and also mesh eyeliners! You can view them and all their color options here on Aida’s Flickr (I put the cosmetic fair LM below)

Last, but definitely not least If you are familiar with Hair Fair you know about Bandana Day…well the kits are out! and this is the first year with MESH bandana’s! If you are not familiar with Bandana Day you can read about Bandana Day and also learn how to obtain your kits and how to get your bandanas at Hair Fair 2013 if you would like to participate on the Hair Fair Blog! Please remember these bandana’s are being sold to add in with the charity donation for ‘Wigs For Kids’ so it helps a good cause! ALSO if you have not heard about the Hair Fair Photo Contest you still have until June 28th to submit your photo. You can read about the contest, it’s rules, it’s theme and submit your photos here in the Hair Fair Contest Flickr Pool.

I think that’s all the info I have for today!

Happy Shopping & Bandana Making!

Blossom (Collabor88)

I don’t know about you but my favorite event is always Collabor88, between the themes and guest designers there is always something new and exciting going on. I didn’t get to do a preview this time, I’ve been getting over a sickness and have been extremely tired and for that I am sorry! So I figured I better kick it into gear and get this post done early because the crowds have already hit. I tried to tp to collabor88 this morning on another av of mine and got the sim was full for about an hour so I guess I’m not too late!

Animalistic (faMESHed)

faMESHed opened it’s doors yesterday, and I managed to get some goodies before the crowd hit, I’m sure many were dealing with hangovers from the night before. I’m not so lucky on the other hand, I wound up sick so as soon as the ball dropped so did I. Ah well there is always next year.

Sorrowful Nightingale (100th Post)

Yayyy my 100th post! I have to say I’ve been a Second Life resident for 5 years now and all the things I’ve done and tried to do here (making clothes,poses,buidling) none of them have fit me as well as blogging. It’s honestly the best thing I’ve done in these 5 years, plus it makes me feel as if I have a purpose for shopping my ass off. Now I know this isn’t the milestone of the century, but I’m proud of myself for finding something I enjoy so much!

If you follow this silly blog the one thing you know about me is I like to dress up in odd ways, I have no idea why. It’s just fun and out of the ordinary I guess, everyday is halloween here at pixel pantomime haha. SO in celebration of my 100th post I did just that. Excuse the title of this post I’m not sorrowful at all but it set the mood with the photo. 😛
