Chasing Fairies – Arcade Preview! :)

Heya guys!

There are very, very few events I ever cared to apply as a blogger for. The Arcade is one of them and I just recently got accepted. When Umberto told me he’d add me, I jumped a little in rl. It’s weird, it’s only SL, but it does feel like a bit of an achievement since The Arcade is such a HUGE conglomeration of awesome, creative people on SL. I am really proud to be part of it now and I find it super amusing that now it is actually TRUE, after so many people spread the rumor I was secretly part of The Arcade already, which was nonsense. πŸ™‚ But I tell you, playing gachas lagfree is much more fun. πŸ˜›

So, here is an outfit I put together with many amazing items from The Arcade, which will open on December 1st. πŸ™‚ The outfit is not really something I usually would wear in the role-plays I join, but I have been saying before I will every now and then dish out a modern post as well. πŸ™‚

The fairies!

Omg, when I saw these I WANTED them. And they are not even rares! These cute fairies come in four flying versions and several attached versions (shoulder, head etc.) and are provided by DLab (Dazai Voom) at The Arcade. They are majorly cute, what can I say? They fly around you and their little wand is sprinkling fairie fire. πŸ™‚ They are obviously a rather nonsensical attachment but get mad props for major cutesy. πŸ™‚ Pretty amazing details, too!


The skin!

Nina Helix of Birdy got invited into The Arcade and looking at the quality she delivers, it is hardly a surprise and was only a matter of time. Her skin Blair costs 100 L per play and comes in several amazing make ups of which this one is a rare version called Kiss me and I am wearing the browless version with an added browlayer by The Shops (Diva, skintone 09). I am a huge sucker for the highlights Nina draws upon her skins which apparently are popular enough to be copied by many other designers by now. her lips are -awesome-. I am not so much a fan of the harshly drawn jawline, but after talking to her I can see -why- she does it and appreciate it from an artsy point of view. And honestly, it is a minor thing that hardly lets the sheer quality of her skins diminish. What I love especially is that all her face are truly unique. You can tell right away wether it’s an Eladie, a Snow, a Delilah etc. Other skindesigners provide much less of really unique skins.

The skates!

Maylee Oh of the Secret Store caught my attention quite a long time ago and ever since she improved like craaaazy. She is one of those designers that make you go O_O when you look at her items, grabby hands included. Her items are really well done, I like her textures and the effort she seems to put into them. original mesh, too! These skates are currently available…guess where…right: At The Arcade. They come in various colorations and patterns of which I am displaying the Mint Polka version, which is a common item. Not only that, but they come with a really nice AO for skating as well. πŸ™‚ I much enjoy the various patterns she offers and with 75L per play these are not expensive either (unless you play the machine endlessly, of course).

The Arcade Preview – LARK! – Presented by the deranged Sorceress

Heya peeps!

As you all surely know, there are only three days left until The Arcade starts again. I can say one thing for sure. I will storm this event. I have gotten to see a couple of previews already and I fear most of my money will be spent by September 1st. UGH! But oh well, the creators I will pay certainly deserve it. πŸ™‚


The books!

DO you see these books? Sienia Trevellion of Lark most certainly has outdone herself for the Arcade with her Imaginarium Librarium. She was SO happy to be accepted into the event and damn…this shows some real damn effort. When she sent me this preview, I was quite simply baffled. These books are cute, creative and funky. I can imagine them in any kind of library in a Harry Potter or fantasy sim. I love, love, love the textures. The LI is okay with 2-3 for the books. But do you SEE these funny designs? Books with little windows, roots around them, a book with a hidden dagger, books that are bound with a lock? Seriously, I was always looking for some fantasy books for my parcel, now I got them!

But wait, there are prizes in that gacha! The board I am using in this picture is one out of five colours available of which one (wheat) is the rare one. Also, the book with the flying pages is a rare one as well. Evil, is all I can say, because the book with the flying pages has readable text on it. πŸ™‚ It is super, super cute. So, don#t forget to play this machine at The Arcade. πŸ™‚

As you can see, something went wrong for my sorceress!


The horns!

Silverr Andel of Sterling Artistry is mostly known for his eyes Hint, hint: He started making mesh-eyes now, too! I stumbled upon his store again after quite some time and I think his items have improved greaaaatly. I found it through a Hunt, The Seasons Palette Hunt and I couldn’t resist to buy these horns, even if the normal size is a bit big for me. You can however resize them. πŸ™‚ The horns come in several packages and each packages comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from nine textures for the horns and nine textures for the metal. I really think these horns show great attention to detail. I love the little chain dangling from them!! πŸ™‚

Something went very, very wrong, but…It wasn’t me! I swear!


The belt!

Deccan Arida of The Forge has released this Boadicea’s Belt a while ago already, I only now got aroudn to have a really close look at it and I must say, I am impressed. The design is very complicated, intricated and creative. Guys often have a bit of a problem finding JUST the right style for girl items, but Deccan has proven to be rather creative in this regard. πŸ™‚

The belt comes in four different versions: Silver, bronze, gold and multitexture. Multitexture allows you to tint pieces of the belt independently from one another with a HUD. The best thing is though? Despite being a belt, you can use it as a bracelet, legband (I did that!) or even as a necklace, so it is super cool for various kinds of styles. πŸ™‚ The textures are very pretty as per usual, but you guys already figured I am a Deccan-fan anyways.

So, here it what you see in the picture! πŸ˜‰

Heya peeps!

WE LOVE RP starts tomorrow with its FOURTH round already and, if I counted correctly, 49 participants. I am so, so, so excited because there is SO much good stuff this round. Look what we have here!

The skin!

Nina Helix of Alchemy/Birdy has outdone herself for this round. She -always comes up with items that show a LOT of effort which makes me really, really happy because it shows she values our event AND the customers as well. This round, she presents us a FULL release: The Eladie skin, a very pretty, ethereal looking skin with THIN brows. Yes, you read it correctly. THIN brows. For all you girls out there who love her skins for Birdy and Alchemy but could never get to fit her brows? This is your chance. I am so, so happy. The skin comes with…yes…you read this right..SEVEN eyebrow options (the usual ones AND pastels) PLUS a bare option. It also comes with the necessary skin-appliers, mesh elven ears and is offered in EIGHT tones. And the best thing is? For WE LOVE RP she has set the price to 50 % OFF!

Seriously? That is crazy generous and awesome for a full new release of skin of this quality. I think once I am got a bit of breathing time (after the event starts) I will try to do a full review this skin.

The dress!

The Library is offering us an incredibly pretty new dress named Margaery and if anything, they managed to visualize that characters look – pretty and somewhat sophisitcated– very well. I love the color choices as well as the textures. A job well done! I am very happy with this dress, too, because you can wear the vest separably from the rest and combine it with other outfits, which I will most likely do. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The armor!

The armorpieces are part of a WHOLE outfit by The Muses, which will be offered not only in the seen black/red combination, but a more streamlined version as well. Dolce really, really has shown so much creativity with this outfit as well as an eye for detail and realism. I love, love, love the fact that more and more designers now realize that we girls do not ONLY need pretty skirts, dresses and silks. THANK YOU, Dolce! The textures on the whole outfit, with comes with meshpants that have NO ponyrider appeal plus an dawesome tunic, are incredibly rich and detailed. But more about that tomorrow!

I survive by the memory…of you.

Hello peeps!

So, where was I? Mostly, in bed. The past weeks were odd for me and finally I got my bum up and went ot the doc, turns out I have a dysfunctional thyroid which caused me to be tired and feel sick all the time. I could sleep 18 hours in aΒ  row at times and still felt as if it were possibly 2-3 hours at most. Well, with the new pills this should hopefully stop now and I’ll be able to spend some more time blogging again. πŸ™‚ My apologies if blogging is going slow, but an extremely busy rl + this stupid stuff really kept me distracted.

Please forgive that in my following post I won’t post every single (make up/skin-) layer I use. I have gotten a bit tired of meeting almost exact copies of my avatar ingame. While I can see how people might just want the same look, I never considered this blog being a guide about “How to copy every single bit of an avatar” but it is more meant to be inspirational. Especially now, that I finally got my absolutely perfect skin for my elf (I really do love the new Laqroki skin, but it just looked TOO innocent for my elf), I’d like that look to stay unique for a while, though I don’t doubt some of you people will figure out what I did anyways. πŸ˜›

By the way, not fan of this new wordpress layout. Hmph. Never change a running system, damnit!

Autumn hits the grid and I love it! :)

Hello peeps,

I finally got my new comp and of course now I tooka pic of my current favourite outfit. Autumn hit Germany, so I decided to go with very autumnliek colours as well. I love them! I also decided to not go with the newest of the newest items possible, but also mix some of my alltime favourites to create a very…scoundrel-like outfit. I just love any kinds of adventuring elves. πŸ˜‰

Also, you might notice that I managed to get rid of that slightly yellowish tint of the Body Co skin. How? Arriah Fiertze from Medley released a SKIN DETONER which works just fantastically. I LOVE it. It makes so many skins (like old ones from Pink Fuel, Laqroki, the new Vive9 skin etc.) look so much better without that sickly yellow tint. πŸ™‚ Many, many thanks to you, Arriah.

Also, stay tuned for the new LAQROKI skinline,s they are about to be released. I saw some previews and they are…MWAH!
