Cabin

Natasha II Ivy

I was floored by the wool coat and boots that Ison created for Collabor88 this month, if you haven’t gotten them yet, or just didn’t see them at the time, you have to run back and get them all. The textures the detailing, it is all so perfect for the upcoming weather and really are classic designs. The back of the boots are gorgeous with the strap and buckle look, definitely must have items.

The outfit was perfect for location shooting with the modern mountain cabin by Trompe Loeil, also a Collabor88 item. it is small and rustic looking on the outside, and definitely more modern on the inside, with glorious high ceilings. I was going to furnish it all up, but I must say I had a change of heart once the lounge was in, and a lovely old chair, also by Trompe Loeil. It felt like putting it altogether for a shot, would ruin the ambience the location deserves, it needs to build, over time. Adding a piece here and there, collecting memorable pieces if you will, that make a home. So that part I will leave up to you.

The skin I am wearing is from My Attic, it is an Idiosyncrasy skin called Natasha II and it has been a long time since Idiosyncrasy has been in world, so it is exciting to have her back creating again. This make up is the Ivy, and each make up type, comes with bare lips or coloured lips, you will find the demos on location…also remember My Attic closes in about 23 hours so don’t miss out on the savings of all items being only 95L.

The hair is also a My Attic item, it is the Patricia hair by Mina, and also has lovely flowers you can hide and show, but for this warmer look, I went with just the texture change scarf look.

Second Life can get so immersive that time just flies, that is how it has been the last few weeks for me. With such beautiful events taking place, and so many wonderful things going on, I felt like a spectator. Collabor88 has been going on for the majority of the month already and this theme with it being falling into fall inspired is a lovely one.

SySy’s first time – and hopefully many more times to come –  in this event, and the Chemise dress is just perfect for lovely autumn days. It will probably surprise her that I opted to blog in the pink, as the red and white, and navy and white are definitely my firm favourites. But I was remembering how pink the ad for this great hair from Exile – for My Attic – was, and I wanted to be sugar sweet too. Of course I ended up going with a combination blue and pink look that is fun. The stripes on the dress matched perfectly with my new toeless leggings I made for Flair.

In this pic I don’t have shoes on because I am actually wearing the NEW Clawnails from Slink as well. These are NEW add on item that fit over your toes – you turn off your regular nails with the Utilities hud in the feet folder BEFORE you add the claws – the more exciting part though is that they have adorable pawpads underneath that you can turn on and off, and also they work with nail appliers that you already have from stores. So cool.

In the other pic I am wearing a combination of two colours of the same dress. The Blair dress comes in two pieces, and While I really wanted to wear it with pants, without doing my own alpha that won’t be possible – and I was feeling lazy – but with another colour of the same item, I was able to get my plaid look going on. The Blair dress is also a My Attic item, so for now until 30th September its only 95L. The bag that helped inspired the look is by Boom and part of C88.

I got some NEW add on shoes today as well by Filthy, they are a great set of wedges and come with a tan and a black sole option, which is great for mixing and matching and making a transitional look from day to night.

The skin I am wearing is by Glam Affair, and there are so many options for brow colours and no brow options – I kind of dig this as an option because some people just have a brow style preference, and if someone is making brows then they get their day in the sun too.

The skin is called Angelica, and it was only last night I was talking about Angelica Huston to Newdoll in such praise that it seemed appropriate, even though I doubt the skin was named after her, most likely someone else, but hey it all connects in my head right.

The jewelley I have on is a mix of Yummy and LaGyo, both at C88 and both just darling. The ring and visor are texture change, and the visor is just such a novel item, it is a jewellers visor which probably has a way more technical name, but such an amazing idea as an accessory. The acorns and leaves jewellery by yummy is delicate and lovely, so make sure you grab all.

Whimsy Winx loves Rocks. It isn’t code for anything, it is a fact, she genuinely loves all things that have to do with land development in Second Life. To be honest I do get as excited a lot of the time when I do come across great items that help in that way, but nothing compared to the cartwheels and high jumps of Whimsy.

The reason behind this insight into Whimsy you ask ? well it is because of the rocks behind me. They were a birthday present to her that I got her this year,…don’t worry she also got an amazing house with waterfall, pool two stories and a bridge lol. But it was the rocks she made the most noise about. She often will make little spaces so that she has them set aside for taking pics. Most of the time they sit there until we do a clean up, but today I just dragged one to my side of the platform and edited it to the size I wanted the rocks and use it as my own backdrop today.

The dress is a stunning tied at the hip halter dress from Rebel Hope Designs. I was going through poses and really liked how this one looked bare feet and all, so it all came about from there. The dress has a plunging back, so plunging that you better have good bum cleavage because chances are it will be seen.

The beautiful hair I am wearing is by Exile and part of The Arcade. The prices on this are a steal, as you get a pack for only 100L and if you get a pack that is not your colours you can trade it for others with friends, or in the trading groups and so on. For people that do photography or blogging, it is a great thing though because having some different colours than normally worn in your inventory always comes in handy and at such a great price.

The skin I am wearing is also from The Arcade , The Skinnery has been really doing some great work, and I just loved the lucky dip of this, again as I can swap tones and make ups often, gatcha is always a lot of fun. The sunglasses are a past release from Mon Tissu and the colour and detailing matched to the dress really well, so this look can be an all round day into night look, it will just depend on footwear and other accessories worn.

It’s The Arcade time again, wooooahhhhh – sung to the tune of ‘It’s Raining again by Supertramp – ok now that I have that out of my system, lets move on shall we. There are some incredible items that have been created from many wonderful designers, and showcased at this month long event. This is a Gatcha event, so that means it is like a Lucky Dip concept, which means having a go on the machines means you will get a random item. If you are after a specific item then the suggestions for that would be to join The Arcade group and arrange to trade with other members. It really is fun when done the right way, and so many friends love trading with eachother, and often just playing one to get a special  gift for someone that really wants a specific item is a nice thing too, but limit how many times you try on doing that, because you don’t want to go overboard.

The lamp I am standing against in this image is actually one of the items from The Arcade. It is by Trompe Loeil, and honestly the assortment of lamps you can collect are beautiful. This one really stood out, not only because of the fantastic recycled look to it, but it also has projector lighting included. I did add extra lighting with shadows and of course in PS but it does create a wonderful option and is modify, so if you select the prims that have the lighting you can modify the settings to get the effect you want.

It is a floor lamp for inside of the home, but I could not resist using it in such a suggestive way. The whole lot coming together because of the shoes I have been aching to blog for weeks now, and the le tigre top by Emery that is also a The Arcade item. The shoes are by Kitties Lair, and it kind of ended up a theme, not intentionally but once I saw the look and realised the names and creators, it was humorous, at least to me. The shoes are just lovely, sexy and textured so beautifully, the reflections on the pvc leather are fabulous. I also really like the zippered backs – that match the zipper on the front of my shorts, and the HUD was easy to use and I did not need to tint because the base colour included was spot on.

Upwards of the feet you get a lot of leg, that is due to the great booty shorts from One Bad Pixel. They are part of the leather bustier and booty shorts set recently released, but familiar to those that would have purchased at My Attic last year. They were never released in full or in more colours, and that has been changed, and now there are some incredible bright and wickedly sexy colours to choose from, today though I went with the black. Trust me you need these shorts or at least to demo them, because they give incredible bum.

Upwards again we get to the Le Tigre mesh shirt from Emery. This shirt is one of many colours that is available at The Arcade, whichever colour or colours you get though its a great muscle tank style, and has rawr factor already built in. It helped me show off my new shaggy cut style from Lelutka, that is so cool and has a tousled just out of bed look or ‘ I know how to use product so well it looks like I didn’t try’ look. I actually want to see this style on men because I think they would rock it hard core too.

The skin I am wearing is not from The Arcade but The Skinnery is part of this event, and the skin I have on is MING. Such a gorgeous skin, that I just had to show you all. The face is just a delight in an asian look that comes off more Eurasian depending on your shape. The freckles and moles on the body and face are gorgeous, and there are tattoo options for lips and eyes. It is definitely a more youthful fresh faced look overall though. DEMO DEMO DEMO and Slink appliers for the skins are also available.
