And then the sun goes down – News from Mina, Remarkable Oblivion and more! :)

Hi guys,

I hope you all have been well? πŸ˜€ I am pretty good but damned busy. WE LOVE RP is starting again and I switched the parcel over to winter. Aside from all the event stuff rl has been really busy and my bf talked me into playing some more WOW again, and I am actually having fun on my warrior tank. πŸ™‚ Aside from that, I usually fall asleep when I hget home because lately I feel extremely exhausted.

The Arcade has started and I wanted to get this post earlier but alas, I slept most of the time during the weekend because I am sick. Yay. Oh well. πŸ˜› Lets see what my avi is wearing! πŸ˜€ You guys REALLY need to check out the new, flat boots by Just Design at Fameshed! Truth just released new hair at Uber!

The lyre!

When I saw Remarkable Oblivion’s (Nimvade Resident/AxsisThorn Resident) items for The Arcade in my inventory I sqeed. I had seen the previews already on Flickr and they looked SO gorgeous. Imho RO really has set the benchmark high again. Look at those gorgeous metal textures on the bells and the lantern (on the dog’s nose!). They look extremely realistic.Β  The overall textures on both these items are so very pretty and the colours really well chosen. The small details on these items are amazing. Also, the animations on these items are really nicely done and they are resizeable. One play is 100 Lindens, but keep in mind that with EACH play you get awesome items in this case (the lantern and the lyre are common items!) which you can actually USE in role-play ( a bard, anyone?). They won’t just rot away in your inventory like so many other items we buy at gachas. πŸ˜€

The hair!

Mina Nakamura of Mina Hair was accepted into The Arcade and that is sooooo very much deserved. Mina has been working hard to improve her meshes and textures and the results are showing! This style is very pretty in my book. It is a long style with a tad bit of a messy feeling which is very cute. I LOVE her textures, they look very realistic in my book. I do wish she’d possibly change her light blondes a bit, they look a tad bit grey to me. I love that her hair comes with both materials enabled and with no materials. The detail on the materials enabled styles is insane. 75 Lindens per play is a reasonable price for hair especially when ALL normal hair colours are common items. Only the essential pack and special (pastels etc.) colours are rares. Very cool!

Dancing on my own – News from GField, Magika, Truth and moooore! :D

Hiya peeps! πŸ™‚

A little bird chipred something about new textures from Tableau Vivant coming soon! πŸ™‚ I am really excited to see what the results of the ongoing testings will be. πŸ™‚ Aside from that, Truth and Magika both released phenomenal new styles.

The hairs!

On the picture below, you see one of the new releases (Shae) by Truth and I am a total sucker for this kind of style. A thick yet loosely braided braid with random strands dangling from it. LOVE it. I also have started to really dig Truth’s blonde. The HUD for the light tones comes with a nice variety of blondes randing from creme blondes to blondes with a slightly yellow, honey-like touch and even blondes that are a good bit darker than you’d expect in this package. I love his highlights! I personally love the platin blondes best. I did try the variety packs by Truth and I DO hope that one day he will possibly exchange the blondes in there: The lighter blonde unfortunately is the only blonde that I personally think isn’t the prettiest because it looks a tad bit greyish. Maybeeeeee…one can hope? πŸ˜€

The other hair is by Magika and a new style as well and SO pretty, too! I love Magika’s packs, all natural colours are included in one big package, which makes the 250 Lindens you pay for them one hell of a deal. The style is very soft, girly and cute: Long, softly falling strands and overall gently highlighted. I like Magika’s blondes a lot even if their brighter tones tend to be a wee bit more yellow than others, A fan of this style!

The skirt!

Eeep, look at this skirt! I right away have to admit that this skirt by GField (Cerberus Noel) at Creation JP is hard to mix and match with other items due to the unusual height on the hips. However, if you do have items that work, short blouses, boleros, bandeau tops etc, this skirt ROCKS. It’s really long enough imho to work for role-play if you combine it well. It fits perfectly into the waist andthe lacings are not just drawn upon the mesh, but are actually made of mesh as well. πŸ™‚ The gentle flare of the skirt makes it easy to combine it with all kinds of belts as well. The texture is nice but not too over the top, so you can both turn this into a more down to earth look or into something far more sophisticated. πŸ™‚ It comes in various colours too! πŸ˜€Blog395_1

I know what my heart believes! – News from Keystone, Tres Blah, Lark and moooore!

Hey peeps!

New outfit, new post. Collabor88 opened up and this round’s theme offers a LOT of opportunities for us role-players to shop there. πŸ™‚ WE LOVE RP is open now and Tales of Fantasy started today, too. But lets have a look at the outfit!

The headpiece!

The headpiece shown in all three pictures is a new item offered by Aymee Monk for her brand Keystone and currently is available at WE LOVE RP. Aymee has come such a long, long way. This so far is one of my absolute favs. I love the texture of the gems (they are changeable via a HUD!) and the general shape of the item. Aymee really has found a niche for her brand, which definitely is focusing on crowns/tiaras and other kinds of headpieces. I like her metal textures a lot, most of the time they seem very realistic. In this case, she was a little braver than usual and the headpiece comes as a part of a whole set, including pieces for the arms and legs. Very, very pretty and her gemtextures are constantly improving too. πŸ™‚ Definitely a must buy!

The dress!

O-M-G! Whenever Juliette Westerburg of Tres Blah releases something it is pretty much guaranteed something I like. This dress is SO pretty. It comes in five different colours and in standard sizes. It only costs 188 Lindens and is available at Collabor88 and certainly made it among my top ten of dresses. The dress goes over one shoulder and I really enjoy the soft, silken texture, which isn’t over shaded and highlighted but JUST right. The added, braided belt is a cute little detail. I also like that there is no strong shading for the boobies. Nothing is weirder than a size L that has the SAME size of drawn on boobs like a size S or even XS. That always looks so odd. πŸ˜€ The only wish I would have is that the upper part of the shoulder (which has a golden sort of texture part) could have been a bit more detailed, maybe with some kind of buckle.

The fountains!

The foundains displayed are the newest item by Sienia Trevellion for her brand Lark at Collabor88. They come in five different colour versions (of which each one is really tasteful and fitting!) and both as a fountain and in a simple planter version. The fountains have a LI of 10. I really like the detail and ornaments and the water is very well done as well. These can be placed against a wall and make for a super nice decorational item in any roman/greek or gorean inspired sim imho. πŸ™‚ I absolutely love the texture of the little ’tiles’ and the shells/snails. The price of only 88 Lindens for each piece is a really great deal in my book. So people of Ancient Rome(Greece/Gor: Go get these! πŸ˜€

Will you still be there for me? – So much awesome stuff! :)

Heya peeps!

I hope you all spent a lovely weekend! Mine for sure was good and very relaxed. πŸ™‚ WE finally booked all our flights etc., so this summer we are gonna go to Crete, hiking and beack combined. Looking forward to this! Fon’t forget that soon enough The Secret Affair will be starting again and stay tuned for infos about the new MYSTIC REALMS FAIRE being posted VERY soon! So keep your eyes open, this is gonna be a big event for sure. πŸ™‚

Buuut, lets have a look at what Arica is wearing this time! πŸ™‚ Also, on a sidenote, the credits for this posts made me angry. πŸ˜›

The cuffs!

The cuffs I am wearing are a current release by On A Lark for Tales of Fantasy and a common item of their gacha there. I really, really think On A Lark is a store we all need to keep a close eye on because Discovering Destiny, the owner, has been constantly improving. I really like her eye for details on her jewelry and these bracers certainly are super pretty. They come in various colours of which all are really pretty, though I personally still like gold and bronze best. Her goldtones are really nice, too. The cuffs come with a colourchanging HUD for the little pearls (you can see in the pics I use white and teal). The Bliss Cuffs are part of a three pieces set (collar, anklecuffs, cuffs), but you don’t really need all parts imho, because each part on itself looks good already. So for only 50L you have a good chance to grab this very pretty common item. πŸ™‚

Blog376

The dress!

The dress I am wearing is an item you can find at Gocha Merlin’s store Go! and is pretty awesome. Gocha has a penchant for really colourful, unique outfits. I really do like the gathered skirt on this dress and how it folds. I think it is neatly done. This item is honestly a bit on the steampunkish side of things and I am not a HUGE fan of the skull picture, but that’s a minor thing. I only wish the corset came separately, so I could mix and match a little more. I also noticed that with larger boobies you may have some poke-through-issues. Still, this dress is really neat and I think if you combine it right it works. πŸ˜€ Also, one of the versions she sells is currently 50% OFF! πŸ˜€

The gauntlet!

The gauntlet in the picture below is an item by Remarkable Oblivion and it roooocks! The two designers behind RO (Nimvade ‘Blair’ Resident and Axsisthorn ‘Sebastian’ Resident) seriously know their work. πŸ™‚ The gauntlet comes inΒ  three texture options and even includes an animation overrider for various hand positions. You can even force both hands into separare positions.. I am using the relaxed one on the picture. Their textures are plainly awesome, there is NOTHING to complain about it. I was a bit baffled just how HUGE the default version is, but resizing it was no problem at all. I think this makes some damned badass item for soooo many kinds of characters that wear plate or have had their hand replaced for some reason. I LOVE it! πŸ™‚

I want to see the stars – News from Purple Moon, Eudora 3D and lots of hairs! :)

Heya peeps,

two more weeks until it’s finally the end of the schoolyear and I get to have a six week summer break. It’s about time, I am TIRED. πŸ˜€ Life is busy atm but I still managed to put together this outfit which is somewhat unusual and I really like it because of that! πŸ™‚

Lets have a glimpse!

The squirrel!

This squirrel by Anya Ohmai for !Ohmai is adorable. I am not usually a BIG fan of the giant influx of plushies al over the place, but some always manage to stick out and this is one of them for sure. For this steampunk inspired outfit it is perfect. πŸ™‚ I love the incredibly welldone textures as well as the generally – somewhat unnatural- cute shape…plus the mini goggles! πŸ™‚ It comes with various options to hold and rez it and certainly is a good companion for anyone who like ssteampunksih outfits..or maybe plays a pilot? πŸ™‚

Blog374PS_2

The dress!

This dress by Purple Moon (Poulet Koenkamp) is, imho, a proof that templated clothing in SL does not equal uncreative and boring outfits.Β  It comes in two parts, the upper jacket and the lower skirt, so it can be worn and combined separately. I LOVE this dress. I love that it has the hi-low cut so that it displays your legs while still not being too sexy. πŸ™‚ There are far too few of these kinds of skirts out there! I really like the texture of the jacket. The skirt is nice too, but for me the jacket beats it since I am suck a sucker for leathers. πŸ™‚ This template also comes with a great deal of little details, for example the ruffled part on the belly and the metal applications. Pretty! And the best part is, it is an RFL item at Fashion For Life, which means a set percentage gets donated. πŸ™‚

The boots!

Eudora 3D is a store that has been around for little more than a year by now. In my opinion, Eudora3D Resident is one of the best shoe-designers in SL hands down. His designs are incredibly real looking and the textures are so, so awesome. These shoes are SO perfect for victorian or steampunkish styled avatars. They come in two different colour packs with 12 texture options each. Each package is 650 Lindens, the fatpack is 950 Lindens, which is one hell of a deal. πŸ˜€ Their shoes are not on the cheapie side of the scale but still very reasonably priced for the awesome quality you get and the myriad of options. If you compare the whole package you buy here with similarily priced shoes elsewhere, you will realize they aren’t really expensive at all. I really hope Eudora will make more medievalish boots soon! Hint, hint, hint! πŸ˜›

The sun will be guiding you – News from Tales of Fantasy, Magika and more! :)

Heya peeps!

God, three more weeks and I finally will be on summer vacations. I really need a break. Currently I spend my ‘weekend’ correcting ~ 85 exams, so exciting. Ugh. Oh well, I am not gonna complain, I love my job, but sometimes I regret teaching three languages.

I had this outfit stores for some days now, already posted the first pictures on Flickr on Thursday but didn’t manage to blog it yet, but here we go now! πŸ™‚ Lets have a look!

The hair!

The hair on the picture below (and on the last one) is a new style by Sabina Gully for Magika. I pretty much instantly fell in love with it. I bought the secondary package with the unnatural tones in it and the price for 250L is insanely generous. I mean, in-sane-ly generous, because you get 30 tones with each package. The hairs are HUD driven. I do wish Sabina would offer various sizes for her hairs for all styles and not just for longer ones, but so far, I have always been lucky and they fit my avatar perfectly. I LOVE her textures and the incredible soft look of her styles. Imho, Magika has some of the mostd etailed styles around, with small, smooth strands and very pretty highlights, too. I sometimes heard people complaining that they supposedly lag with the hair, but I have never personally made that experience. Definitely a must have! πŸ™‚

Blog373PS_3 copy

The..uhhh…top!

The top is actually a so called chain tunic and is a new item by The Forge (Deccan Arida). I was mighty amused when I unpacked it after he sent it out and I anticipated to see a chainmail tunic…and then it was this! I still like it a LOT though even though I think Deccan totally needs to size down his boobs on his female model! The chain tunic comes in rigged mesh and in sizes for normal boobs and implants (and those seem to be GIANT ones!). I decided to display the tunic with my comparably small 8yet still big) Lolas and I must say, I really like this item. The texture is pretty and if worn without the implants, this can be easily combined with other meshparts and tops to add some nice detail to new outfits or can be worn as a necklace. A really neat idea! The item is currently available at Tales of Fantasy as part of a gacha.

The pauldrons and the eyemask!

Both the eyemask and the pauldrons are part of a gacha at Tales of Fantasy by FDD, a store by Seller Xenno. The store has been around since a while now but it seems they relatively recently ventured into making their own mesh, too. I am definitely a fan of their goldtones and overall textures and I personally think that these pieces, especially though the eyemask, are really worth a couple of tries at the gacha machine. They are common items, which means you can get them fairly easily. Very creative and pretty items! πŸ™‚

One is the loneliest number – News from Collabor88, Tales of Fantasy, Tableau Vivant and more!

Hiya peeps!

Collabor88 opened its doors and there is quiiiite a few neat items to be had. Tales of Fantasy is open now as well and there is a LOT of cute stuff to be had. πŸ™‚ This blog will show you some cute hairs as well as two other items from there. πŸ™‚
Lets have a look!

The headpiece!

Aymee Monk of Keystone really, really has come a long way by now. This head accessory is called Corva and is a new release for WE LOVE RP and currently available at 25% discount. πŸ™‚ The package costs only 180 Lindens and contains EIGHT different texture versions of which I like the golden and copper ones best. Aymee really has a knack for pretty tiaras, crowns and the likes. Also, I do like her metal textures a lot, the constant improvement of her skills is very visible.Β  This so far is one of my favourite items by her because it offers so much variety and really has a pretty, unique shape. There is certainly a ton of these things out there by now but one can still spot a Keystone rigth away. I only hope she will soon make more items that maybe have some gemstones or pearls implemented, too. πŸ™‚

Blog372PS_1

The hair!

The hair on the picture above is a new release by Tableau Vivant (M4ri1yn Magic) for Collabor88. It’s a very unique style. There are a lot of pigtails for sure, but most are either braids or poofy ones. I cannot recall any up to date mesh hairs that have a similar style but I may be mistaken. It comes in three sizes: Normal, a version for boobs and a version for larger heads. As per usual, the meshwork is really smooth and the style is super cute. However, do wish the normal version (which I am wearing) would fit better for smaller boobs. I think to fill out the curve of this hair I’d have to increase my boobies by 30% at least. It looks a bit as if it floats this way, but honestly, I still like it,e specially because it is so unique. πŸ™‚

The skirt!

The skirt my avi is wearing in these pictures is a new item provided by Tee*fy by Azure Electricteeth for Collabor88! I LOVE it, because I have been searching my bum off for anything that resembles a high-low-skirt.Β  I love to see legs, yet I cannot see anyone wearing a miniskirt in medieval times, and fighting in a long skirt just seems..uncomfortable at best. These kinds of skirts let your legs move freely without looking too modern! The skirt has just the right length and the the right height on the hips. However, I do wish that the edge on the hips would be a little smoother/tighter. For some reason, even a size XS (and Mari usually wears M/S) still doesn’t cling very neatly to the body, but that can be hidden easily with a belt! Compliments for the alphalayer, too! It is one of the few skirt sof this kind that have a good alphalayer. Most alphas blow but in this case, it seemed to fit perfectly well. Also a fan of the textures and colours this skirt comes in! πŸ™‚ Definitely a must have for my wardrobe.
