I have a weakness it seems. Gacha usually doesn’t get to me, I take a spin, I get something and I am happy. If it is purple Whimsy gets it, and sometimes I take more than one spin depending on the item. I don’t much care about collecting a set of something for the home. or every plushie, pet etc. I do love that people have fun doing so, but I am just happy with what I get. If I do roll more than once, it is usually for something beneficial to me, such as bags, or skins, or hair, things that I can use in one way or another, and getting them at such a great price, is not something to pass up. I also tend to spend what I think that the item would sell for anyway, and what I would have paid, so I don’t go nuts…until Nylon made these bags for The Arcade. It is something about those two sisters, because I am equally as nutty when it comes to Polyesters rings – mind you, one does not need other peoples birthstones, so I just took a few spins got some nice stones and was done. But the bags, oh my goodness the bags.
All handpainted by Nylon, and as I have mentioned in the past, I have some of her handpainted bags, and a doona cover in RL so these were a must for me. I got all but one of the whole set, the first one in the pic, I actually managed to get 11 of the twelve without doubles, and the first spin was the rare, but then I had to play another dozen times, because by then I just wanted to try and get it, and all my friends can use bags anyway. I didn’t get it, but I am happy with what I did get, but if you do happen to have a Red Mambo spare, and need a Spring Time then give me a holler and we can swap. I am wearing the Bindi one in this picture, and everyone of them is just remarkable, she is incredibly talented…both of them are, I am also wearing a beautiful necklace from Yummy by her Sister Polyester, which is definitely the perfect necklace for a chest baring top such as this one.
The top/jacket/hoodie thing is by Eclipse, and it fit over my skirt and the Physique body, so it works a treat. I do recommend trying on all demos in the store, as I had a few rigging issues with items I had tried, so only walked out with this one. I really like the inside fabric finish and the gold and moss green mixed with the red of the skirt and the red and gold of the NEW Slink shoes Roxette, has an almost ready for Christmas feel. I generally try and stay away from green and red, but this time of the year you can let your freak flag fly.
The NEW hair by Exile that is part of C88 is a perfect style for the look, it is back from the face and shoulders on one side, and draped enough on the other that you still get to see all of the top. I also like the off centre parting of the style and the layered look to it, perfect for this weather on both sides of the world.
The skirt I chose was a no brainer, straight to typing switch in my inventory and up popped the mini – there is also a pencil skirt included – beautiful leather and just a perfect go to skirt from SySy’s. Gives you the perfect oppurtunity to show off long legs, when everyone else is bundling up, which is hard for us down here when it’s a billion degrees outside and everything is too hot to handle.
