No more haunting

Today I worked on a double portrait picture with my friend Kalli (big thank you to her for posing with me), to show you guys the recently released Sophie skin from Glam Affair. You can find this pretty face at The Chapter Four, available in 2 tones (Asia and Jamaica) and 4 different make ups!

We’re also wearing the new Sheena hair from Lelutka which is a group FREEBIE, as part of the introduction to their updates. I don’t know about you but I practically peed myself with excitement when I saw Minnu Palen’s update on Flickr a few days ago. As a long time fan of the brand, big changes like this are always exciting. They have now released 4 new styles, including Sheena as a freebie. The new HUD system is very simple to use, and I was sooo happy to see some awesome roots versions now available. Make sure you go check them out!

Bit of a formal look for you today, with the new Cleo top and Nayra skirt from Baiastice at C88. Of course they’re seperates so great items to mix and match with other pieces to create many different looks. The skirt in particular is an awesome addition to your formal closet.

Also new is the violin set from Bauhaus Movement, who were Baiastice’ prom date for February’s Collab. The violin itself comes in several different colours, as well as being animated with 6 different poses. I actually edited one of the poses a bit for for this pic, using Animare. It’s great to see the talented LouLou Teichmann branching out into mesh, her perspective as a blogger/photographer is really helpful, since she knows what we need!

The hair I’m wearing is from Blues at The Fantasy Gacha carnival, and if you read my blog regularly you’ll know I’m a huge fan of any styles that are messy and wavy so this is an easy new favourite of mine. Finally I added the pearl collar necklace from Maxi Gossamer at FaMESHed for a touch of vintage glamour.

Never Meant To Start A War

Never Meant To Start A War

I don’t take personal pictures very often, really, really rarely actually. I usually just point my camera, snap something and edit however I think looks pretty. But today this picture actually does have a bit of a personal meaning behind it and I enjoyed doing it a lot. Maybe I should do more.

Anyway the item I really wanted to show off is this amazing formal dress from Peqe. It’s out at the We <3 RP event at a discounted price in two colours, the gold and black as well as a pale blue and white. There are other colours available at the Peqe main store at full price. I've really loved Peqe's last 2 releases and I'm excited to see more from them.

Lost To The Wind

Lost To The Wind

I only have a couple of new things to show you in this picture, literally just two. Only my hair and socks are new items but honestly I don’t even care because I’m loving this outfit so hard today.

The hair is a long, flowing release from Tableau Vivant that will be available at The Arcade on Saturday. You may have seen some pictures on blogs and Flickr of it already, it comes with adorable soft plushies that can be worn on your head too, but it didn’t quite fit for this picture so I had to leave that at home :(

My other new thing – the socks with suspenders. These are a mesh item that are going to be released tomorrow from JD at TDR Fusion. I believe they will be able to be worn separately as simple bare sock feet, but are also being made to fit with existing Just Design shoes and boots too, as I’m wearing in the pic.

So much going on over the next few days, I’m really excited and having trouble focusing with so much gorgeous new stuff being previewed, but these 2 items just inspired me to put the rest of the outfit together. Writing my wish list for Arcade today and I can’t waaaaait!

Does She Speak Eloquently

Does She Speak Eloquently

Happy hump day guys! Just here to show you the new Aria skin from Glam Affair, that will be out on the 1st at The Arcade!

Aida has done a beautiful job as usual with this skin, and with her new seperate options there are so many possibilities. You can see the full gacha key here on her Flickr, but basically there are 12 combination skins available as commons, all with different make up options and then the rares are a clean skin base and lots of extras. If you manage to collect the full set including the rares, there are SO many ways to wear this skin. In this picture I’m wearing one of the combination commons, but added some eyebrows, a nose and under eye shadows from the rares. It’s really a lot of fun to play around with and try out different looks.

Also adore the new hairs from Tram, and while they don’t actually sell a purple hair, I just used a light shade (the dark salmon colour) and tinted it in world.

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Daydream

Ain't Nothin' But A Daydream

I love the combination of blues, greens and whites/creams at this time of year, pretty sure that’s all to do with the way the seasons change and everything starts to look bright, fresh and new. Somehow it spills over into my styling and pictures too. Anyway I’ve got a couple more new goodies from The Fantasy Collective today and I’m gonna start with the main item which is this dress from Peqe.

I started flailing as soon as I put it on, because I adore it so much. Although I’ve cropped this picture, the dress is maxi, full length and you can see the generous split to the thigh. Not only does it have a plunging neckline but it’s a halter neck, so it’s backless too and gives you a sexy showing of side boob, which is always my personal favourite cut on tops and dresses. Since it’s at The Fantasy Collective the obvious way to style it is to go something in that direction (fantasy) but I saw so many gorgeous pics in that style on Flickr already that I decided to go with something more mainstream to show you how versatile it is.

I added the Tableau Vivant Sabahi hair which is out at the same event too, again it’s themed towards fantasy since that’s the whole idea, but it’s still perfect for mainstream looks too. Plus it comes in a version called Sabra too which is more unisex, so there’s something for the mens!

For accessories I added some hand chains from On A Lark which can be picked up at TFC and come with matching feet chains too (both made to fit SLink attachments) as well as the gorgeous Tallulah Drop necklace from Maxi Gossamer. All topped off with some oversized sunnys and the Audrey hat from Tres Blah at Collaborate, which while technically not a beach hat, I still think looks great.

I think I’m done for this week now, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

The Red Lady

The Fantasy Collective starts a new round tomorrow, which is where you can find this dark themed roses and chain headpiece by Orsini Sun. Fantasy and role play geared events like these are always great to explore and pick up unusual, unique items in that you might not otherwise find in the big, mainstream events. Definitely worth a visit!

Have you picked up your Valentines gift from Glam Affair yet? There’s two skins in the pack, I’m wearing the Valentines 01, which I love, love! The group has a small fee to enter (it was something like 30L when I joined, not sure of the exact cost now but I know it’s not much!) and then you can pick these up for free.

Yes I’m wearing the Tyr hair from Truth again, sue me, I love it! I also added the gorgeous Jewelled Dragon’s Egg necklace from Maxi Gossamer to give the finishing touch to my red lady.
