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.
