A few weeks ago, well the same day Newdoll and I went to Nyte n Day we went to League as well, as soon as I saw this first set I was smitten.
What drew me to the set was not just the brownzilla yummyness, but also the fabulous ropes and leaf fronds. The set is called Steampunk Apocalypse by League and there are so many ways to wear it. For a start you get two versions of the corset , just in case ropes aren’t your thing, then there is the bolero jacket that actually has shoulder pads but I opted for without.
The detailing on all the textures is superb and very authentic looking, you can just imagine a survivor making such a great and fashionable item out of the bits and pieces she was able to salvage. The stitching on the corset is large and course, but incredibly done. One of my favourite parts – not shown- is the bra top underneath, made from a piece of fabric and just twisted and manouvered into a strapless bra. Everything in the set including the leg warmers and arm bands are just fun and quirky , I love the amount of thought that went into this set, as I said there are many pieces, including even a rope belt, that you would be able to mix and match these pieces with many others.
Such as the Shaman rust Jewelry set from Dark Eden, again someone working with the aftermath and putting together such fantasticly inspired pieces from the debris. I really love the hand pieces, they are so cute, and the cogwheel/gear necklace and earrings… there are different versions of rust you can get in these sets, I went with the Dark. Also from Dark Eden I am wearing the boot bases to the Vagabond boots, I will show them in full another time, but the bases worked really well in the mushroom colour for this set.
The hair is from Old Gravy, and somehow, which is amazing to me; I didn’t already own this style. It is the Candi style, and the bangs and those full tails are just too cute. Now I have to point out that when I was there a few weeks back it seems that Old Gravy have reverted to their old ways, some hair has demos, some doesn’t it’s all very confusing. But trust me, if one of the demos fits you then it all will, and it is all fab.
Now lucky for lag that day, because I was strolling about near the entrance to League and ended up in one of those fun lag pulls, you know when you are trying to walk and then suddenly you are traveling over sims lol. Well I found my self smacking into Unzipped which is just across from League and WOW what a store. It’s like this huge steampunk RP kind of metropolis thing lol, ok I don’t know how to explain.
First off Newdoll and I were entranced by the vehicles, especially the motorbikes/tanks, they were so many degrees of cool, unfortunately they don’t let you sit on the display one :(. Then the clothing got a hold of us both, I couldn’t resist this set, even though it will be very rare I will get a chance to wear it.
It is called Nocturnum and its wicked. You get three different looks in the one set, the long skirt , which I couldn’t help capturing in full swish as I changed poses. Then you have the short skirt option, which is good for a fast getaway – those future men are scarey, you can so tell I grew up in the era of Mad Max :P. Then you have the long pants and the long coat option, you could wear the coat train with the short skirt, but for pics it kind of goes through the skirt etc. I love the jacket in this set, and can see wearing it with all sorts of other pants.
There are so many incredible sets like this one, so make sure you check them out, I made it easy for you to go to both stores in one go :P. The boots I am wearing are again the Nomad boots from Dark Eden that I wore and showed closer the other day, the moss pair were a little light, but as they are mod I was able to tint them darker.
The hair again also from Old Gravy is Vicious, the long tails with the strips of cord, and that widows peak YUM YUM YUM ! can more hair people make hair with bangs like that pleeeeease , or Satine you make more, because seriously they are incredible bangs and I have both styles from Old Gravy that have them and I want MOOOORE.
The skins I am wearing in todays post are both from Lion Skins. They are the SU skins in sunkissed and pale, beautiful dramatic make up without being so dramatic you cant just wear them all the time. The bodies on the Lion Skin skins are beautifully shaded, the tummy is yummy. Definitely DEMO time in these if you didn’t already get over there when they did a huge revamp recently. The Lionskin skins are definitely wear as little as possible skins because the detailing on the bodies are really well done, you will be wanting to be half nakey as often as possible.
The poses are again by Street Magic and if you didn’t go yesterday and check them out, you can today :P.
