There are so many wonderful Christmas items out and about at the moment. I was able to visit the Old Europe Winter Village earlier today, it was just amazing and you need sounds on to really appreciate it. I did try and take pics there, but had to do a whole new install of my SL because I don’t know what I did the other day taking pics but I managed to somehow make shadows on my av come out jagged but smooth on objects – baffling I know.
I am totally biased though when it comes to my favourite Christmas goodies, because watching someone you know create such amazing items out of thin air and their overly fun imagination always trumps. Such is the case with the Gingerbread items by Whimsy Winx. She created an amazing Gingerscape interactive scene with trees and cocoa cups and marshmallows, it is all so awesome. But for inside the home you can have the Ginger trees with speckles – they also come lightly sugared or without – and of course the Gingerbread Village tray, that when you click gives you a menu that you can pick snickerdoodles, cocoa or candycanes from lol. You can see them and try them at The Deck at her Mainstore too.
I wanted to play around a little with Mesh today also, there have been questions about layering and such, and Mesh not being able to fit over mesh unless made to do so. Well that is ok for now, because the more that is made, the more options will come, and possibly with the Standard Sizing being so similar, you could maybe get away with upping a size and wearing over, who knows. But today I went with sculpt over Mesh, in the form of the adorable Harmony Poncho from Sn@tch. This crocheted poncho comes in a variety of colours in the pack – as Sn@tch shoppers know you always get the item as a pack not singles, but the prices are fabulous so you won’t hesitate. I like the design of this poncho as it is definitely more lightweight than usual poncho designs, so could even be worn over the top of a dress for an evening out, rather than a rugged up look.
I of course am also wearing it over a dress in the form of the Nolita dress from Maitreya, one of the new Mesh items I blogged only yesterday…yes love it. I wanted to wear it with my Polo hat/hair today, and was spending so much time on getting my viewer fixed I didn’t get much further than that. I do also have on the beautiful Calypso set from MOOD, earrings and ring done with a great mosaic style tile look. Very inspired and gifting is a pleasure at the store or marketplace.
I am wearing the new skins by Glam Affair in this post, it is called Linn and as usual the make up is a great mix of day to night, with a clean version I just love and think all skin packs should have as a default. The skin comes with hairbases in blonde or dark, as well as no hairbase options but still with light or dark brows. There are also 5 additional brow tattoo layers, and 5 different brow shapes if you want to change yours. Definitely worth a DEMO DEMO DEMO if looking for a lovely skin with a very stylish set of make ups, and beautiful body detailing.
The boots are also new, the Lyo boots are the latest footwear from Baiastice. They are an ankle boot with the option of socks or no socks, and you also get a HUD that allows you to change the socks colours or also tint to a closer match if coordinating, this is brilliant. The boots come with alpha layers but there is also a V1 invisi prim option for when needed, for all the people that deprive themselves of more than one alpha/tat layers – you know who you are . The leather work is really great, and the strapping is lots of funky fun.
