So Mad I could Spit

I came into world moments after posting and sent a message to Kyoko to let her know I posted on her hair, it seems in the 48 hours since I went shopping some jerk told her that her hair was a ‘cheap product’ and she is so upset that she has closed all her stores and I cant convince her to re-open them. Now my concern is that this girl will feel so bad and stop making hair, and that will be a great loss, yes her textures arent magnficent like some of the bigger stores, but her vision is wonderful and I love her styles as you saw.

One person is all it took to destroy her stores, I am so bummed now, but wanted to make sure you didnt all TP over to an empty place and if you speak Japanese please contact Kyoko Forcella and try and convince her to reopen :(

Lavish me with Style

I was lucky enough to venture over to Lavish Style today and check out the Newness, but what was also so intriguing were the older items. I ended up talking to the designer behind Lavish Style, Katy Angel who has been in world for a very long time; and it shows with the broad range of items in her store.

She was very easy to talk to, but as usual I confused yet another designer with my ramblings and slang-note to self, not everyone knows addy is slang for address, bad Sasy. As I was saying, Lavish Style is a large store with a beautiful easy layout to peruse at your leasure, a lovely landing area with some REDUCED items in the courtyard and then very clear NEW RELEASES to greet you at the door.

Also I am so excited too, because I FOUND NEW HAIR! ok new to me and I am not sure I have ever seen anyone with it, but I went and bought it all, so pay attention to that too.

I am going to just jump right in because I have a huuuuge post, and Im not even done yet lol.

This first set is called Annie, and it literaly jumped off the stand and wanted to be mine.

I am not really sure if I believe in re-incarnation as such, but if it where true, then I have definitely been a bar wench and a saloon girl in my past lives-which now that I think about it would make sense as I have been in hospitality my whole life, yes 20 years retail and 36 hospitality, but dont you dare add those two numbers.

Ok where was I, Annie is an incredibly beautiful set, with a lovely silky cream base and taupe, chocolate and black detailing. This set has more of a military slant to it with those buttons going down both sides of the front, but the whole thing comes together a treat. The wonderful off shoulder sleeves are prims, and I really like how Katy has managed to make them using lots and lots of rings, so that they take on the colour tones of the skirt so well, rather than just using texture on a round prim.

The mini ruffle skirt is adorable, but I just love the bodice and the panties so much, the fact that it is lingerie and a dress is fab, and the bodice would look sensational with a longer skirt. Katy does fabulous shading and wrinkles, so that you really feel like you’re wearing something soft and sensual, and the fishnets look great when going the lingerie route.

I went a bit whacko trying to find the right colour boots for this set, and I had these ones to start, sent Damen Gorilla mental , and then ended up back where I began-dodges the smack, The boots are the fabulous Arme boots from Adam n Eve in antique cream, the square tipped pointy toe style is fab, and the buckling down the side added to that military look.

Skin is by Popfuzz Designs and is the Tan/Essential Nude make-up, which is a lovely soft make up and of course the cleavage works a treat with this dress. The Tahitian Pearls & Cameo necklace is from the Kerry set by Last Call and the reason I bought the set in the first place-the rest is fab too. The shoes I am wearing when in the lingerie are the fabulous Bonita heels by Enkythings, they had the right kind of shape for shooting stockings in and the strappy open front are delightful.

Ok time to learn about the hair by the talented Kyoko Forcella , the Hair store is called White Well, and is in one of those little market places; that you know you need to find the main store so you dont miss out on more. Now all the hair is just numbers and all the hairstyles come in one colour only, BUT! I realised that Kyoko for the most part tints that one colour to make it different, and she has found a great shade that tints incredibly well, such as I have done with this one which is 012 and I tinted it to make it this colour, so for the prices which I kid you not range between 60-70L and two styles were 3L YES, THREE LINDENS!. I know you all just TP’d, didnt you.

This next set is called Jinx and is a fab girls night out set. The strapless babydoll is gorgeous and as you can see works realy well as a tube top too, again the shading is wonderful and I really couldn’t get passed how detailed the back pockets on the pants look. I swear they look like prims, but they arent.

This set has a bit of a rocker feel to it, so I teamed it up with the Skully Seatbelt belt by everyones favourite BadBoy Truth Hawks from TRUTH. I love these belts, as they have the old style seatbelt buckle on them and thats just a cute bit of vintage wear if you ask me.

I wanted some jewelry that was black and white to go with the ensemble, Mezzanine Qi is one of those talented designers that goes AFK for months at a time lol. The Black Jade and Pearl Serenity set is sold seperate or all together and has many different options, I am wearing the Choker, Hoop Earrings and Triple Bangle, Mezzanine made all the textures himself and the detailing is superb.
The hair is again by White Well and is the colour it comes from the pack, but is again tinted, isn’t it just a gorgeous style and colour. Also her older styles-I’m guessing older- have two sizes and her newer ones have three, this is the 005 style hee hee numbers are fun, but seriously I cant imagine many of you not just buying the lot. The skin is the Tan/Smokey Mauve Taupe make-up by Popfuzz Designs.

The Lori shoes are the latest release by Tesla, and this is the black version that she felt she had to do so that her regulars wouldn’t be upset, the rest of the Lori collection are a vibrant mix of colours all named after cocktails. What I really like about the Lori heels are that even though they are vibrant and daring in texture the heels are solid and comfortable, so they are perfect for dancing into the early hours of the morning.

Meet Anastacia, isn’t this set yummy, again its a daring little mini dress with fantastic underpants layers so that you have your whole look in one.

The detailing to the top is superb, the crossover back and front straps and collar are wonderful,again leading you to want to add some grand gown skirt for a more fomal look, or even some sleek dress pants.
What i really liked too other than the obvious sexyness of the garter and stockings, is that the stockings arent sheer but very very opaque. The underpants layer actualy comes with and without garter option which is great.

The darling little skirt and stockings make me want to grab a feather duster and start wiggling my bum, but I’ll try and behave. I went with two shoes options again, first off the Metis Heel boots by Dark Eden , I love these bucktacular boots by Etain Peregrine are just wonderful and come in wedge heel also, and all the usual Dark Eden colours. The second pair of shoes are again the Bonita heels by Enkythings, and this time you get a better look at the fronts.

The hair is White Wells 011 style and again I tinted it to make it red, and look how fab those swept back bangs are, Kyoko definitely has prim talent. The skin is the Minnu Model Skin Tan/SkinGloss Grass make-up , which is a favourite of mine with the slim red stripe down the middle of the lush lips.

Ok for some reason this green went to my silly side, and this is the outcome of superheros doing the naughty with sexy villianesses lol. This is the Julie Babydoll dress and its rich colour and detailing is gorgeous.

I love the shine on this top as a babydoll and as the top on its own, and the superb finish to the top without prim goes to show that Katy wants you to enjoy every part of the outfit. The Opaque leggings make an appearance again this time with the set in pants and socks layer for complere pantyhose coverage, but are so opaque that they make fabulous leggings with boots.

Yes I went double shoes again lol , this time the Catalyst boots by Abyss that every super villian needs in her wardrobe, and then when she is her secret identity she opts for the Arme boots by Adam n Eve this time a close up of the detailing on the boots. The Ruby Port Arme’s look fab with the Julie top as it has that gorgeous burgundy band at the bottom, and as you know all super heroes/villians are always well educated, so the books are a cute little attachment from the study date set from Icing.

I am wearing the stunning Greta Green Mask by House of Nyla, and the lovely feather and gold detailing are just magnificent for hiding your true identity-because thats all it takes lol. Having to make sure no one puts two and two together, I went with the Gladys Glasses from Artilleri in green, I love these vintage cats eye shapes frames, they are yummmmmmmmmmy.

Two skins of course , are both by Popfuzz Designs and are the Tan/Future Green make-up, sooo delectable-but if my mumma was poison ivy dont be smooching me unless I’m Yours- the other skin is the Tan/Smokey Natural Pink make-up.

I have on the NEW Prim Shimmer Nails by Fleur and these come in a wicked assortment of colours, I am wearing the Coal as it suited both looks so well… now to wear these well you will need to have the ability to mod your shape, as there are three sizes in the pack for size 20,30 and 40 hands- yes ladies your hands arent supposed to be as small as your feet. They also have gloves that mask the nails of your skin so that the prims look sleek against your fingers, this you will need to tint to match your skin.

*** PLEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAASSSSEEEEEE CJ and Roslin can you make those the colours of the skin tones you make in each pack-dodges the bricks and iron bars- oh I am going to probably get in trouble for that, but it would so rock******

The hair is Sila a NEW release by H.C.T and Babyboo has done it again a huge seven style release of fabulous hair that has texture change on click bands, and some are made for hoody fit so that you can wear them tucked under the hoodies that she lists as available on her sim also.

Ok so I am typical lol , but how could I resist Sassy Nurse huh huh. I was having M.A.S.H moments in my head while taking these pics, if they ever made a new version of that show, this would be how hotlips hoola-cant spell her name- should dress.

lots of different looks from one saucy set, the stethescope was an adorable extra as well as the nurses cap, I am smitten by the yummy booty shorts and bra top, so how one would end up looking after days of running around looking after casualties-ok Im making it up but its HOT so who cares.

The fishnet detailing on this set is incredible, not the usual tiny square cut outs but larger ones that just add total depth to them, so much so that when I took them off I still had the indents in my skin from all that posing. The cute little ruffle skirt is flirty fun.

I just had to wear these chunky yummy boots from Digital Dragon Designs with this set.

The boots are the red Switchback boots and the detailing on these is amazing also, the fine chain work draped all over them , and the steel soles with their rich red leather.

Topping it off with more NEW hair by HCT called the Wicket Hair and it is it really is lol , again it has a texture change band and clips on the side, holding back your cute little bangs…and nothing could be better than the fact that amongst the various textures you get to choose from are GINGHAM AND ANIMAL PRINT Purrrrs and Squeeels all at the same time. Skin is the Tan/Smokey Red make-up by Popfuzz Designs and definitely gives me hotlips.

Lastly-but no I am so not finished showing you Lavish Style, the rest will follow soon- are the fab and funky Vintage Tee’s sold seperatley and worn here with the Frida Jeans from Last Call . They are the Eight Ball Tee, the Vinyl Tee , the Soul Sista Tee and the No Dorks Tee lol.

Which of course brought out my dorkyness and I had to play dress up with some of them. The shading and wrinkles again on these are fabulous and so Unisex too, what guy do you know wouldnt wear an 8-ball tshirt.

The hair is adorable and is by White Well , it is style 019 and just yummy and that is actualy the texture it comes in, a lovely rich brown. You can’t see coz I suck, but there is a low-pony tail down the back too.

The shoes are by Maitreya and I have no idea if in the main store but believe it or not they are FREE, and are the Frisky wedge heels in black and at the Gossip Girl sim- unfortunatly I have no clue where lol as I don’t know how I found the store to begin with,I just walked around and down and to the left and up and went ooo Maitreya oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooFREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Remember the other day the limelights I wore, well they also have those for Free too in the Zebra print YUMMO , so make sure you grab both when you find them.

Also free but they came free in a fat pack of a gorgeous Pencil dress I bought at GLAM, are the super cool Aviator Glasses I have on- don’t I look jiggy with it. The other item that is either free or a few measly lindens are the cute head phones from Kiki’s Closet, I am not really sure but I really do think they are Free, and have neck or head attachments and are FLUFFFFY.

The skin is the Tan/Essential light pink make up by Popfuzz Designs ,and well if you have been since the release, just letting you know that Popfuzz has added another version to all skin packs, the down there area is now shaved so that there wont be any complications when wearing lingerie or low hugging jeans etc, so you get both versions in each skin choice. That was a huge undertaking too to redo another 615 skins, and Popfuzz is going to send out the additions to all that have already purchased, awww she is so sweet.

I hope you have enjoyed the Lavish Style post today and I am going to follow up with more later I promise, so many beautiful pieces still to come….but dont hesitate to head over to there and of course the other stores shown today. Today in addition to my regular poses I also used ones by Poseur.


Also on a completely different note, I had the pleasure and honor of posing for CodeBastard Redgrave for her Boudoir Rouge Collection, you can see it on Flickr HERE but also she has opened up her Code Red Gallery to allow Public Viewing of all the incredible images of Amazing Women of SL that I am so deeply moved to be in the same space with. Hope you can find time to go look in person .

Always thankful for:

Essentia for my Beautiful Hair Roses and Jewelry many pieces of which I have watched being made, and had the pleasure of wearing first as they are custom fit to my shape-I’m blessed.

Sasy’s Wish List

Ok this is kind of nutty, but I remember last year that someone made a wish list on the feed, of things they would like to see happen. This is not to cause a riot, or drama. These are just things I think sometimes, or experience in world through work and things I do.

Ok so I have absolutely no order to them at all, and I really don’t know exactly what I plan on putting down lol , so hang on tight…..here goes.

* I wish that Linden Labs would make sign up more intense!
-That they would better prepare people joining for Second Life, by showing them some tutorials or slideshows at the very begining…and so that they don’t skip them…actualy make them answer some basic questions from them before proceeding….or even make HELP ISLAND Beta Grid, yeah now thats an idea, let New Residents get all the crazy out of their system but set up kind of workhops in Beta so that older residents can go and spend time there helping out.

*I wish that when people sent notecards they named them!
lol ok this is more a work related wish, but its astounding how many NEW notes I get, and that they dont include the persons full name blows my mind also, ok so properties right? wrong, what if they have recycled an old notecard from someone else-and yes I have gone to properties and found well known content creators names in creator field- lucky for chat at start up saying who sent it in history or I’d not have any chance of helping those people.

*I wish that NO Transfer items were sold in boxes!
-and yes skins too-I am scared as much as everyone that SL will eat things, and when an item is unpacked that is no copy, the box is unlimited unpacks -amazing how many dont know that-things that are incredibly sentimental such as gifts and high price items also, can be then stored in a seperate folder of just boxes, so that in the event you cant find something at least you can hope that you will have the box to unpack again…or better yet you can drag all those boxes to another box and bury it on your land- in ten different locations lol.

* I wish that dragging a folder to your body didnt take off everything else including attachments like huds!
This wish comes under three categories, work, blogging and being female lol. I have to change often in front of customers to show them items, and with sl being like it is at times the folder is there but the contents dont load etc…would be great to be able to drag the folder onto me and wear all but still keep what I have attached also.

* I wish we were better informed as to updates that really do effect our SLives such as the create NEW body parts one that seems to have bypassed many people.

When I was doing Another Fundraiser and also some other stuff, I had to pass on a few times the fact that you CAN create skins and shapes now that have YOUR name as creator, not the linden default one-yes this was passed on to me also a bit before that, but it amazed me how many didnt know as I myself had no real need to know lol.
Go into any folder and right click, click create new body part and then a drop down will give you all the parts we have, click one and Voila YOU are now the creator of that skin, eyes, shape etc.

* I wish that LL would give us back transaction history in world like we used to have!

There are too many people that don’t even know what or where it is, and how useful it is. I encounter at least three times a week a person that I need to direct to there, and its very complicated especialy if a language barrier…but again that would be a great tutorial at sign up.

Which actualy brings me to a double wish lol again work related, but a big doozy of a wish.

*I wish that when an item doesnt deliver that the customer STOPS and doesnt try and buy it again, to have the same outcome! and if an item doesnt deliver they go straight to transaction history and copy paste the info to a notecard for records for both parties involved.

First off this is based on the fact that no one can afford to pay for something once and not get it, never mind twice, also as I am able to redeliver I can fix the first issue, but I cant refund money, so I have been lucky enough to have customers pick another item to same value and send that also, other wise they would have to wait and that is yucky :o(.
Aside from me though, the transaction history page is also good for seeing exactly what happened and sometimes when you think you have paid for something you actualy havent, so you save yourself stress etc.
Other reason is that not all vendors are in world every day, and some unfortunatly go walkabout for a long time, or worse have RL issues that keep them away and that can’t be helped….SL only keeps your transaction info on both ends for 30days, so if you get the info-all of it- and save it to a notecard, you have records to show the creator on their return.
Oh also lol LL only shows up to 500 transactions for each day and once it hits 500 it starts chewing up the first ones- something like that anyway- so you haveing the info helps especialy the bigger stores find your info faster.

Ok that was a huge wish lol

* I wish -and this is greedy- that all clothing was made on all layers regardless of making sense or not lol .

We all have individual style, some people love wearing t-shirts under corsets with jackets over the top lol, some love OIL yes OIL says it again OIL lol and some wear tats, and other things that may be a bit more personal-yes I find it very funny that there are skin makers who have those parts on undies layers, but underwear creators only make on the same layers.

I sent my boss bonkers with her last lingerie set I think there isnt a layer or combo we didnt cover, such as putting garter with panties on both layers as well as seperate , so that if you like to dress in fine lingerie but may still be wearing pants, you dont have to go without stockings and garter just because the garters are on pants only or jacket only.
Some people like wearing lingerie under full piece suits, just knowing they have it on makes them feel wonderful…so give them that.

Grins big

* I wish that when people asked to know where to buy OIL they weren’t ridiculed in open chat!

There wouldn’t be one person in SL who doesnt have one item that they know their friends would be shocked over owning lol, or one item of freebie clothing from when you first joined that for some reason you cant part with, if people want to buy body Oil they have their reasons to want it, and its no ones place to sit in judgement of that, the group IMs they ask in are for help not peer pressure lol.
Also too, a lot of older skins Oil actualy adds some essence to it, as alot of the older skins are very matte and not everyone can upgrade to newer skins, so its their way of having a fresher look.

OOooooooooo

*I wish more MEN would comment on things they like in Womens SL fashion, and don’t like!

Constructively of course, I was actualy planning a post on this, because again a post a long time ago on Linden Lifestyles asked what kind of down there people preferred, and it got a bazilion answers, thing is though that many MEN have different opinions on how their women look in SL especialy when intimate, and unless you’re a nudist , the only time your naked really in SL is with and for another person-ok and not all partners are men I know that but you know what I mean.
So when topics come up or you see an outfit that grabs you as a Male admiring women COMMENT on it.

* I wish people wouldn’t shop with BUSY mode on!

A few reasons for this, first it makes me nervous as hell when I see it lol because I stress they will buy something and not get it- being in busy means items can’t deliver or go to trash, DONT SHOP IN BUSY MODE! lol . Another reason is that busy mode takes chat, and sometimes important things are said in open chat you may need to know, such as for the next ten minutes all items to the east will be 1L I mean come onnnnn you would die if you found out later you missed that lol.

* I wish that if something is unusual in a price on an item that people would contact the creator/staff etc and not tp in one thousand people to take advantage of what might be an error!

This scenario has happened many times in many forms and hurts the creators in ways you dont think about at the time, which in turn ruins any future above and beyond that creator may have planned.
Example: Creator sets out New releases and one accidently gets priced to 5L not 250L, no one lets the creator know and it takes a day to realise that their balance is made up of 5L transactions, Creator gets disheartened about the honesty of customers and never gifts to group or sets out freebie items in the future.
On the other side of that and dont take this as gospel, but IM’ing them and letting them know and the joy they experience of having someone so honest contact them, may see you rewarded with the item, again not gospel and dont expect it- the reward will be also that you have shown a person what it is to be a good person.

* I wish that when shopping in a store people didnt ridicule the items in open chat to friends!

For one thing its rude,and effects all around as well as the creator, who may just be in chat range bald on a posestand making something at the time.
Another is that the friend might like the store, thats why they are there and why you havent teleported away yet, let people shop, let them find out for themselves if something is to their taste-this is actualy RL experience on this one from working in retail for 20 years.
Too often I have seen people leave a store pining because there is something they wanted but their ‘friends’ talked it down so much they felt unable to purchase something they liked…NOT FAIR.

* I wish that people wouldnt sexualy roleplay in open chat in stores and non sexual sims!

Because the region is mature doesn’t mean sex is allowed. Roleplaying is your dealio keep it to IM, it is still exciting having an IM popping up and your partner being naughty in your IM box,
dont think that its not unless its shouted across a room in green chat, oh by the way if your using parts to emote sex in a store, not only are you without class but also imagination :P. If you want to make your other halfs toes curl, keep it to IM and if your doing it right she wont be able to buy a damm thing…. darnit.

* I wish that everyone and their dingo called pete didnt list hair in search as keywords!

I used to sit there shaking my head in wonder at why so many asked in Fashion Emergency where to find hair, I have since made a copy paste response but while doing so I finaly realised why…GASPS! there are at least 30 if not more locations hitting huge traffic in search places that have completely wiped out the usual hair list of the past year, because they have used hair in their keywords …..SEXX SEXXXXX SEXXXXXXXXXXX hair SEXXXXXXX and so on, so now people that are new and finaly have some funds to go shopping cant actualy find stores to shop in as they dont have the experience yet to be familiar enough with names we all know.

OK I so dont fully understand new search yet, as OnRez viewer only got it this week, and I so could be barking up the wrong tree here… but dont objects, as in vendors now list in search if you check the list in search box in edit? and if so, my suggestion is write HAIR in the name of vendor.
I dont think anyone that I can think of actualy does that..example XYZ-wallawalla-Black HAIR pack…I know characters are limited but if you can fit hair in there and it does do that, then at least we have a fighting chance of finding locations that have more than a box of freebie hair out so they get you to their SEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX club lol.

OMG OMG OMG I have to add one

**I wish creators would fix their picks to actualy have their store at the top, by numbering each pick!

it is so frustrating when you need to find someones store and only know their name by using inspect or you see their profile and you want to visit their store and its got three other stores you dont know there and also family and friends and none of it makese sense, yes picks is for your personal stuff also :o) I love that I swear I do, but if you own a store PLLLLEEEEASE make your first pick your store , and if not then pay 50L for a classified standing at your front door to your store so we can find you that way if you rent and cant list in search

Ok I think I have exhausted myself and probably you in my silly wish list, but they are those kind of wishes you think or rant to your friends about, and Im hoping now that I have them out there I can move on lol.

I would love if people added their own wishes to the comments, but please if you dont agree with mine or have some that are just drama mean blah whatever, remember these are just my wishes nothing more, and I am too fragile to deal with hate. Oh and if others do comment and theirs arent your cup of gravox again leave it be, it only raises your blood pressure to get all hepped up.

xoxo Sasy xoxo

BareRose

I was spending some time with Tori Heart today the fabulastic Manager of BareRose . We were testing out the NEW sculptie Lip Gloss attachments that you can find in the Newness section of BareRose and are a whopping 25L for 4 lol .

Now these were created for windlight and earlier today I didnt have windlight installed as it never works for me…but at 25L why would you wait for pics when you can check them out for yourself. I was admiring her outfit which is shown at the bottom of this post and then of course she changed into something else, which I ended up drooling over as well.
So aside from the fact that Tori and June and Koko spoil me silly all the time, off I went to BareRose to do some shopping.
It had gotten wayyyy past my bedtime by this stage, so I of course stayed up lol. So here is the big post of BareRose fabulousnessness- actually come to think of it, I think I have done bigger.

This first set Messenger of Light I remember seeing on What’s New and just thinking YUM! but didnt really have a reason to wear it, but tonight I did lol; I got to wear it to take pics for you.

This set is another one of those OMG out of the box items. You know the ones, where it was so good on the vendor pic you just had to have, and then you get it home put it on and nearly faint because its even better.

As its BareRose, there are more options than you see here, as in three sets of those incredible wings, these are the simple set, there are also particles and planets , but they were a bit too busy for pic taking. You get the simple-has no clue why June calls anything this beautiful simple, but I think its June-speak for white- and Blue tops with skirts to match and the divine collar ruffles. Can we talk PLUNGE!.

This set reminds me yet again of Xanadu, June does that at least once every 6 months creates something that is just so that movie I cant help but Squeel-I know its not really anything actualy worn but I can imagine that the Muses looked like this in that cloudy place. Ok so not only do you get the sexy dress and the wings, but also that lovely heart shaped necklace and wings pendant…but for a moment, Honestly can you actualy focus on it, because DAYUM look at the cleavage Popfuzz gave me.

I was already in love with the make-up on the Dark Bronze Future Silver skin, but my goodness I might wear plunge all week now- and I swear on a stack of tim-tams I didn’t change my cupsize. I am telling you, if the face pics didn’t do it for you, you have no reason now not to go get those DEMOS at Popfuzz designs, and as its still only sunday in her country you are still able to take her up on the first skin at 200L . Back to the outfit though, even without wings its a stunning look, in the all white or the blue enhanced, this is a set that makes you wish SL had black lights lol.

The shoes are the lovely AC Serenity shoes in silver/white, and unlike the Vintish these have a pointed toe and were Aphrodites first release, and so beautiful. I didn’t get a close up pic, but here is the OnRez page so you don’t even have to tp lol. The hair is the lovely Aimee that is also one of the first Hair styles by Maitreya, that I actualy wore all day today in the black-I love this style.

This next set is called GL Gungirl, and is the outfit Tori changed into. Now she doesn’t know this lol but the whole reason other than the Delish tartan skirt that I ran to grab this set was for of all things the socks.

Yes I know, I’m a goof. But seriously I havent ever seen the sheer ribbed socks like this in SL before and I loves them, had to have*makes gimme gimme fingers*. Of course again being Bare Rose there are many more colours in this fabulous tartan skirt, but I was so not prepared for the wicked chaps that also come with.

The whole set and look is raunchy and also the naughty June added a not filled pair of chaps too, for the even nawtier. I just love all those bows on the legs and the cuffs at the wrists, all I need now is a saloon-Oooo I have one in my paradise blanket Yeeehaa.

Now as you can see in the pics and you can click it to see the socks close up too lol, I went a bit skin nuts, I started out with the MMsPale Gray skin by Minnu Model Skins, as it was fresh and clean looking for my little tartan school girl look.

Then realising that this was not exactly a school girl set as such, I did a 360 and put on the awesome Chai Vedette Skin by Launa Fauna, this was actualy the free skin we were all blessed to get in 15# issue of Second Style Magazine….and as I was on an LF Chai roll- hee hee sounds yummy doesnt it- I went for a group gift skin that Launa sent us when she first started making skins, and it’s called Brisque, both of them are in the honey tone and delightful.

Not to let my hair be outdone by my skins lol I did the same there too, all from ETD though so alot less complicated. The pigtails/bunches style is called Emily, under the hat is a no bangs bun which are always great for hat wearing, and the last style is Bonita thats in the discount section and the style that got me hooked on tawny texture.

The shoes were 1L from Celestial studios and were stumbled across one lucky day, and then when I went to take some friends to get them, they had vanished-they were definitely supposed to be one L also as they were set up in her doorway with their own vendor..so I am not actualy sure if Starley even sells them or not now, but they are my fav chunky mary-janes.

Lately June of BareRose has been doing some incredible lingerie amongst her creations, and for those lingerie lovers its so worth buying the set to grab them from within.

This is the Black Cupid and Lingerie set, and it does have a white purer version sold seperately. Now as you know June usualy does lots of colour choices, but with her lingerie set, well this one anyway lol.. she has gone a different route.

Instead of having lots of different colours of the same items, she has made the same items with lots of different degrees of sheer. Best way to explain that is that this set you cant see my nipples-and luckily wont ever- but had I worn one of the other versions you did, slightly more each time I changed layers. I love this not only from a buyers perspective but definitely a bloggers.

I adore the option of open and closed skirt front too as I think that can be incredibly seductive, and the lace and detailing on the individual lingerie pieces are wonderful. The prim and Sculpties are also beautiful, especialy the delicate wings. The shoes are the divine and sexy Natasha shiny Black shoes by Tesla, which come with thin ankle straps that you can choose to wear with or without….a better picture of them here from Tesla’s blog- it’s 4am I totaly wigged on shoes close ups tonight :o( sorry.

The hair is Cameron from Random by Garbage Prototype and is a beautiful style, I love parted on the side and front swept bangs, and the side cascading waves are just yummy. The skin is from Minnu Model Skins and is the MMSPalenf Aero-ok does any one else giggle that her name is in her pale skin name?.

I decided to go with a touch of evil with my lashes in this pic and its hard to realy make out but I am wearing Nuclear BoutiqueTotal Glam red tipped lashes, seriously I love Ari so much the girl is a gem, if you haven’t met her but love her creations ,IM her and ask her where is your complimentary bottle of wine* giggles coz I am so into starting that rumour again this year.

** ok seriously I just reached my level of OMG its 4.13am so I am going to take a nap, I’ll be back to finish soon, hmmm ponders for a sec deleting the last two pics and doing them later and posting this now *insert jeapordy music here* nope I’ll be back later *smooches for now***

*Stretches* Ok Im awake again now, did you miss me?, seriously lack of sleep can lead to some very strange dreams.

lol but now that I drag up this picture, my last dream being centred around an old high fallutin school makes more sense.

This omg so cute set is called Steam Rocket Ride and is of course by BareRose. I mean look at all the incredible variations to the one set, you get the three colours and each colour has all the same options in jacket and pants and skirts.

The incredible little suitcase comes with also, and when I was little I had one just like it to carry my dolls clothes in. The incredible detailing on the cuffs and the beautiful cameo neck collar are again superb pieces that you would be able to incorporate into other looks. The Jackets, Skirts and Pants are just superb and the right colours for this kind of clothing, that can be modernised with some other additions you make.

In the skins I was going for a young fresh look and realised that Catherine in this outfit looked a touch way too young, I always say though she looks like Pandoras little sister and nothing is more evident than when you see them both in one pic. Both the Catherine Claddagh and Pandora Starry are from Adam n Eve, so go and grab those Demos. I also went for the Stacey braids style hair from Adam n Eve as its just adorable and cute, and I really like the thin braids coming down the front, as it shows with the fullness of the bangs that there isnt much volume to the length in the style.

The shoes are both by 1800-Betties, the hardest store in SL to find as for some reason its never on search; and if you dont have items and look up creator you can never find it lol. I adore the detailing and realism of the vintage styled shoes, the Sandal Pumps in brown and the Slingback shoes in white are both really great, and the scuffed heels on the sandals is great for showing that these shoes are well loved.

Lastly the dress that started it all , the Simple Latex dress is the one that Tori tp’d in wearing and its so simple but truly stylish for those latex lovers.it is crafted with some interesting attachments so that it stays figure hugging without being texture skirt based.

The colours are amazing look at the metalic on the right, instant lust for that texture, you will definitely wow at any event in this dress and the top can of course be worn with so many other things. There are four colours in total and you also get the delicate chained cross necklace that is sculpted for a bit of jewelry .

I also opted for dressing the black version up with some pearls from Sue Stonebenders store, which are the Chatelaine collections, single strand pearls, bracelet and drop earrings. If you don’t know Sue’s Jewelry you most certainly know her Pianos and work at the incredible Relic sims, built with her partner Baron Greyson.

The shoes I am wearing are fab for wrap-around shoes, its so hard to get that right in SL and these are yummy. They are by Mary Jane shoes and called IM Promiscuous by Infiniti Mirihi , I love them and wear them so often lol.
The hair is the Ember Exclusive Colour by Here Comes Trouble, another favourite in the side swept bangs style, with a lot of volume and height, wonderful for adding accessories to, like all the gorgeous Hair Roses by Essentia.
The skin I chose for this dress is the Aurora in Bronze Make-Up 1 by Fleur, the incredible turquoise eye make up is stunning as is of course the rest of the skin. So remember DEMO DEMO DEMO and if you happen to be reading this and less than 30days in SL- how old you are is in your profile- then make sure you run straight over as just inside the door on the right is the New Resident Vendor , just click and it will give you a Vivant skin in all tones for free, left side of your Male.

For this post I used poses from everyone nearly lol some Juicy, some Grapevine, I think even some Posuer and definitely Digital Dragon Designs– love the little miss look at my bum pose- I really hope you enjoy this post and head to all the places I mentioned, and have a wonderful day/night.

First Class to Japan to DP Serendipity

Valentines Day morning and everyone was sound asleep, I decided to hit some Japanese sims, which for me was like the regular trips to China town when I was younger.

I did so much shopping and unlike RL didn’t have to worry about parking or carrying all my bags, mind you asian stores always had the cutest bags. long before it was trendy to do that.

I found stacks I loved, and the prices as many of you know are incredible.
These items possibly aren’t new to anyone, but they are to me so I’m sharing lol.

The main feature today is DP Serendipity, and the first item is what I ended up wearing later on Valentines Day. The blush pink was just perfect and the style so pretty it just felt all romantic and sweet for the day.
It is called Syusu dress in Rose, and has the stunning silk texture with frlly blouse and the detailing is so good you would swear the bow at the neck was an attachment.
The drop waisted look has always been a favourite of mine, in the past I have gathered a few vintage styles similar and ended up wearing them until they died.

It has the lovely double wrap belt as a seperate attachment, but what I really loved other than the two sizes skirts and belt, was the prim attachments to the legs so that when you sit you dont have all your skirt around your bum and your glitch on show-yes I know smart skirts fix that but I am smart skirt disfunctional.

There were 4 colours available in this dress and it was painful stopping myself from buying the fat pack, and I stood there for ages deciding on which colour, the others were deep brown, creamy latte and mustard-which looked like god to me lol- but I opted for the rose.

When I got home and decided to change though, oh lord did I suffer trying to find shoes to match, and then like an angel Aphrodite Outlander‘s folder in my shoes folder started beckoning me. The ‘AC’ Vintish shoes are a superb choice in the ART pink/beige, as they aren’t so pink as to take away from the dress, and just a nice vintage style that totaly suits.
I love the Vintish range , there is something about the rounded toe that is just delightful, for dancing or work they are fabulous.

I went for the Riley hair from ETD as the shoulder length style with cute colour change clips was adorable- and if someone can tell me how to actualy colour change them Id be happy, as clicking doesnt work and I dont have a notecard in the folder :( so edit linked parts is my friend.

The skin is the Sparkle Pale in Pink by Popfuzz designs and is a perfect match lipstick wise to the dress, the soft lipstick is like that colour your lips turn when you have been having a good pash, and doesnt look like lipstick at all- now thats a colour we can all love. The beautiful Red Harmony Hair Rose and Silver medallion set earrings and bracelet are by Essentia.

I cried when I saw these pants, I mean seriously, you know by now my love for grey, but tweed too in a modern look YUM!.
They are the NEP Tweed Pants and I wish they came in lots more colours, they do sit on the hips but I opted for a longer top with them for a more professional look.

The top I am wearing is proof you really need to disect the pictures you see on vendors, because lurking in there could be a stunner.
I found this for 10L I kid you not and its part of the Female Spyjacket set from Strawberry Milk. The cuffs and collar are just divine and the low neckline give it a really nice shape, it actualy also comes with a burgundy sweater and pants, so you could do all sorts of mix/matches with it.
The hair is an older style of Aden Breyers called Bridgette, and its a very neat do, but with darling loose tendrils and a cute headband keeping you all in place until its time to let your hair down.
I’m wearing Laynie-Wear Modded skin in this ensemble and its the Nude 7 which is of course the one with the subtle lips and grey shadow.
The shoes I have loved forever, as some of my favourite pants shoes, they are the Limelights by Maitreya and they come in a fabulous assortment of colours-but NO GREY sobs- but all is forgiven, as they go with so many things in the black and the other fabulous colours. I remember when clogs made their comeback in the 90’s and the black leather with the snap back strap you could wear flat to the foot or behind the heel, these remind me of those and I never took them off till I killed them-Yes it seems I kill clothes and shoes lol.

Now on to the last ensemble of the day, the sweater is the Aran by DP Serendipity and comes with all sorts of options as you can see, as well as on both shirt and jacket layer for those that want to show a little skin and those that dont.

I just love the blouse underlook- and it is attached so unfortunatly you cant just wear the pretty green blouse- but the two combined more than makes up for it. The lovely flowy sleeves and the incredible scarf as well, all in a beautiful rich brown wool knit. Now time for some info on Aran sweaters , because you see this is something I know :o) and I am really impressed they went with the correct term in the first place, of this style of knit.

The Aran is a type of sweater from the celtic regions and each one used to represent a particular clan- ok I am so just winging it so no one quote me, but its true-as in the sweater of each clan had a particular pattern that was their own. The reason for this is that they were worn by fishermen of each clan, to keep warm and because they were pure wool and the oils in the wool were protective from water spray they were appropriate.
Thing is though that they were heavy, still are if you get a real one- we have two in our household- so what would happen is if a fisherman fell overboard they would usualy drown as the weight from the jumper would drag them under…BUT, when the bodies were washed up on shore, people were able to identify which clan they were from, from the Aran sweater they wore and return their bodies to the right place….ok lesson over lets get back to the love lol.

I teamed up this incredible sweater with the gorgeous DP Dramatic skirt brown, but this is not the same store as DP Serendipity lol just so you dont get confused. This skirt is stunning also, the beautiful layered prims and the delicate ebroidered bottom that is also featured on the glitch underneath. The pretty as all get out silk waistband ending in a hip bow design, it really is fabulous and looks great with the Bloom boots also by Maitreya.

I am wearing the Jade necklace and earrings by Essentia in this ensemble, as the soft green needed to be added with the blouse layer wasnt there, as I so loved the green and rish chocolatey brown together.
The skin is the lovely Blu make up in the Pandora skin by Adam n Eve and look how divine my back looks, I love the Pandora back sooo much.

Hair is FREE and is called Izzy by the talented Truth Hawks of TRUTH, the reason it is free and only until february 18th is its his first SL birthday this week HAPPY REZDAY TRUTH! it really is a lovely style and there is a guys one to be had too, both in his fat packs and the guys one I am so going to wear also in the future, us girls get the best of both worlds wooooot.

Now it seems that Miss Grazia Horwitz that many of you will know from Second Style/More than meets the eye, has gone and opened up her own store, YAY! it is called Grapevine and she makes shapes and POSES, and all the poses I have used today are some of the Debut and the Cecile-named after the Dutch new up and coming Model-the poses are lovely as well as some fantastic sits, so yay Grazia all the best in your new venture, make sure you go and check those out.

Ok I hope you loved my trip to Japan and there is sooooo much more to show you I promise.

Ravenwears’ Raven Lament needs your HELP!

A long time ago I interviewed Raven on Appearance Mode, and it was an insight for me and hopefuly others on what makes her tick.
One of my favourite parts of the interview was her passion about a Charity she has been involved with RL for 9 years, donating hours of her time each week to help animals in desperate need. Raven has in the past made items to fund that help but this time is asking the designers of SL to help her, help them.
****Ravenwear is setting up a charity fashion show auction event for the first weekend in March. We are looking for other designers that would be willing to donate say an unreleased clothing set or prerelease, a new color of an existing outfit, shoes, gowns, hair etc etc so that we can feature it in the show and then auction it off to the highest bidder donating 100% of the money to The K-9 New Life Center Non Profit Tax exempt 501c3 organization. You can learn more about the organization here http://k9newlife.com
In a nutshell they rescue all breeds of dogs have them vet checked and made healthy and find them new homes. This can be very very expensive as some dogs come in with such issues as heartworms which cost almost $1000 to treat. They also neuter or spay all dogs before adoption. They also have taken in some really bad abuse and neglect cases including a dog that was pregnant and placed in a trash bag and thrown into a ditch to die and another dog that was shot and left to die. I am happy to say both dogs were nursed back and found awesome homes including all of the mommy dogs pups. I have personally been involved RL with this charity for almost 9 years and have seen all of the success stories and happy endings. It is an awesome cause and I would love to really try to help them out by using our virtual power!
I will be making a one of a kind outfit as well as some other items to be auctioned off that will be available only at the auction. We are aiming for the beginning of March for the event so we have alot of time to work with. Please feel free to pass this to any other designer friends you might know that might have a warm spot in their hearts for a cold nose!
So far we have such talented creators as Gurl6, Geometrica Designs, Szentasha Designs, .Unpredictable. , Stuff by Riley, Talisman, Malinconia, and of course my label, Ravenwear.
So please contact me, Raven Lament, with any questions or if you want to participate! Thanks again!
*******
I ask that anyone that has time or the inclination to donate items to this event, and if you dont have time to create something completely new, consider diving into your inventories and finding those unfinished items that I know every designer in SL has hiding away in there.
xoxo Sasy xoxo

Incredible Free Items

Today I was spending some time with a good friend Jaydie and the subject of Adam n Eve came up and the Limited Edition sets only available until Valentines Day, Shown Here previously.
Jaydie used to work for PhatCats Jazz Club before they changed hands and she got her now job at ETD.

The previous people of PhatCats have opened a New Club called Sweethearts Jazz Tropical Ballroom , now not only are they looking for staff at the moment but they are incredibly professional and go about making you enjoy your time at their location.

So much so that when you arrive there are two sides to the landing hub that have an incredible assortment of free items and one of those is the Incredible Romantica Golden Gown by Sachi Vixen with Romantica slippers by Damen Gorilla. Look at the divine gold texture and detailing of this stunning gown that can be worn with or without ballgown skirt.

The lovely slippers are perfect accompaniments but can be worn with so many other things in the future also. There are also items by Nonna Hedges and there is Hair for Men and Women , more shoes , a Male shape and Tuxedo.

Now even though Sachi makes DEMO’s for all her clothing, this is a superb way to really enjoy the designs that Sachi and Damen produce, as well as spending an evening dancing with your favourite dance partner.
The thing I love most about this is that for New Residents to be able to go somewhere that is not sleazy or seedy; and fit in with everyone else. To have a night of feeling absolutely beautiful, spending hours dancing and enjoying the beautiful locations that are created in SL is what its all about.

Also the hair I have on today is the divine gift from RaC to all for Valentines Day, its called Love Affair and it comes in an assortment of fantastic colours, I put on the strawberrry and havent even looked at the others yet as it was instant Love. The texture and shine are incredible and the way it just falls elegantly around the shoulders, made from both alpha-prims and sculpties it is again an incredible way to familiarise yourself with a designers product.

I didn’t get a chance to take pics of Stupid Cupid this other fabulous and fun freebie available right now at Ookami Ningen, Zorena made this today and its adorable. The textures are so vivid and the furry ended arrows in the little carry on your back are punk fluffy yummyness. Make sure you go grab it because you never know-just like me yesterday-when you are going to need an arrow lol.

The Poses I used in the Gown pics where a delightful gift today from Gorgeous, and are by Poseur a store New to me, but they have already a large assortment of packs available, with all sorts of different themes for Guys and Gals, so be sure to give them a whirl.

The skin is again by PopFuzz Designs and is the Tan Golden, see again a definite reason people need gold make up.

Always thankful for:

Essentia for my Beautiful Hair Roses and Jewelry many pieces of which I have watched being made, and had the pleasure of wearing first as they are custom fit to my shape-I’m blessed.

Inspiring Popfuzz Bamboo, Ookami Ningen & Material Squirrel

Popfuzz Bamboo the designer of Popfuzz Designs, recently took on a huge task to create her own skin line.

Well known for her ability to create clothing in as many colour combinations as possible, she has truly outdone herself this time. 615 skins in one humungous release, there are 7 caucasion tones, 2 Dark, Fae and Gold skins. All have incredible make-up choices and I have only been able to capture a few of them. In the first pic I am wearing Essential Golden in Tan , as soon as I saw this one I knew I had to have it, as we wear so much gold in SL that its so wonderful to have make up to match.

The second picture is the Dark Bronze Future set and this make up is superb, I couldn’t get over how appealing it was to have green lips. The eyes are also stunning and its a nice change to have such bold event style make-up on a beautiful natural skin tone.

The third picture is a lot softer in the lipstick and is the Pale tone in Sparkle set, very similar colours than the other sets but softer where the feature is predominantly the eyes, and some pinker rouge than the other skins, but probably more noticable as it is a pale tone.

Then in the next picture we have the Chocolate Essential skins, the shading around the eyes is just lovely and the tone is a rich mocha blend.
Lastly is the Tan Smokey set and again the eyes are the attraction but who can get past those sensational lips. The mouth on all these is just superb and the facial structure and detailing to the skin over all is wonderful.

***VERY IMPORTANT***
If you read nothing else in all my post this is truly important. I was taking pics for todays post and in the middle of it started a conversation with Popfuzz about her skins. I had been trying to head over since the release and been really busy with work etc, so I asked her to send me the DEMOS .

I stopped what I was taking pics of and started trying them on to be suprised that they didn’t look good on me at all. I waited for rez, even rebaked and yet it was just a bit too much face and bits around the nose, what I mean by too much face is that it was like I had no contours to my face at all- this was not saying it didnt look like a really good skin it just wasnt’ME’.

BUT I loved the make up on one in particular, so in keeping with Popfuzzes incredible release offer- I will tell you about that soon- I purchased one, and as it was going to be the right colours for my shoot I put it on without DEMO written all over the face. Then I gasped, the skin I had on now was completely different to the ones I had tried on, and I had tried on at least 8 in different tones and make-ups.
I completely freaked out and ran back to the demo folders and sure enough they now looked completely different too, the skin is incredible. Yes it seems odd that I would proceed with my purchase even though it wasn’t my look, but when you take alot of pictures its more about the make up and from afar in the right theme it would have still been great it just wasnt ‘ME’.

Thing was it was ‘Me’ they are ‘Me’, it was SL being an uber stinker bum, I was really upset also that this must happen to people all the time when choosing skins, SL has one of those days when things look to be rezzed and then suddenly you’re super duper rezzed. So why is this so important ? The reason is that skin buying for many is a big step, it is a financial decision as well as a looks one and there are so many skins out there, more so than when most of us bought our biggest skin purchase, you remember when you went from the one after, the one you got after you were new lol.

So as usual I always say DEMO DEMO DEMO, but today I am going to say, grab as many DEMOS as you can, go home get naked or in a bikini somewhere-take off those damm face lights- and look at the skin from every angle in all sun/moon settings. REBAKE (Ctrl> Alt>R ) and then wait, then don’t do anything for a day. Then next day try them all on again, even ones you thought weren’t ‘You” because SL just may have let you down in that department the day before.

Ok now to the ***VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT***

Until next monday Popfuzz Bamboo is offering everyone to have the oppurtunity to embrace her New Skin-line by letting you pick one skin and contact her to get it at 200L the regular price is 800L so that is a significant saving, this offer is one skin per avatar, so if you have been considering an alt lol now is the time to consider harder *giggles* I so didn’t say that- it makes me laugh when people tell me that they aren’t buying something for them but their alt has it or is going to buy it later today.

The beautiful hair I am wearing in the skin pictures is by Gurl 6 and is called Juliet, I adore this hair so much- I nearly broke a leg trying to get to it when it was released.

Now to share some more absolutely divine items with you. Ookami Ningen owned by Zorena Deckard is a store full of imaginative clothing, in the past I have blogged items from there and usualy there is some significance to her creations, what I have come to realise is that Zorena is very passionate about culture as in the Arts, Music, Literature they all have a place in her creations.

Her latest release started as the Dying Swan and ended up with both Dying Swan and Dancing Swan. I was intrigued by this as I had the pleasure of TP’ing around last week with Zorena and Vivianne while Zorena was in her Dying Swan creation, which was something she was inpired to make for herself and with much prodding decided to release it-thank goodness.

The beautiful creation was inspired by the Ballet Piece the Dying Swan and I did some googling and its a beautiful piece first performed by Anna Pavlova. I also found a YouTube interpretation of it by another ballerina and the sound is awful but you can see how this would inspire 4 such lovely sets by Zorena, and yes due to popular demand already the Nocturne sets have been added.

The first is Dancing Swan, all white corset style top with beautiful feather/fur detailing across the top of the bodice and the incredible upper arms. It just floats as you move its gorgeous. I actualy opted for a different contrast skin for this picture, wearing the wonderful Demoness skins by Teagan Blackthorne of S.Y.D. There are a selection of make up variations and unfortunatly my face pics didnt turn out so I will have to show you those another time, but if deep red skin is your thing then these are the ones to look closer at, the red is so rich its wonderful.

The hair style in this pic and the next is the Mollie Uppy-do by Here Comes Trouble and I love how Babyboo managed to realy twist the front of the hair into the pile of curls at the top, you really need to try on the DEMO to see what I mean. I wanted some pearls and elegant Jewelry to go with this look and I found the lovely Queen of Pearls Platinum set by Becks fine Jewelers in my inventory and it was perfect. Beautiful single strand choker and drop earrings, with bracelet and ring.

The reason I am barefoot in the pics is because I have two kinds of ballet shoes in my inventory, slippers that really didnt work and fetish *grins* and the white Eve boots though they looked fab on, didn’t suit the incredible poses by Gorgeous of Juicy. But I did get the wear my black ones with the Nocturne sets-pokes my tongue out at Whimsy.

This is the Dying Swan set and when Zorena and I were talking I told her I cant do blood lol, well it seems I can if I have fun with it, so searched my inventory and low and behold I actualy own an arrow-would have been more fun had it had a heart attached lol.
But again you see the real attention that Zorena gave creating this set for those that can do one or the other or both :o).

Now on to the Dying and Dancing Swan Nocturne sets and I do so love black ballet outfits, the beauty of both the white and black is so obvious and the pieces are easily convertable, just think about adding your favourite long gown skirt and creating a totaly different gown.

As the Nocturne sets are a bit darker I opted for an old favourite hair wise, also from Gurl 6 called Gail, this is my I’m a rebel hair lol I used to wear this all the time when having one of those ‘I’m Tuff’ days lol.

This is also where the Fetish Ballet shoes came in as they aren’t past the ankles so the poses still worked really well. They are the DXD Ballet Heels from the Dominatrix shop a really beautiful store lol so much so that when looking in search I just wanted to go there because of the pretty picture of the build-it turns out its a Relic prefab so that makes all sorts of sense why it was so breathtaking- but ended up having the exact items I was looking for :oP -pokes it out at Whimsy again.

Dying Swan Nocturne also has the same blood detailing as the white but I did tend to get carried away with the poses and wanted to of course show off the magnificent Carmine wings by Material Squirrel, which ended up being a perfect time to feature items from there as they have UPDATED THEIR WINGS!!

They have done a huge wing hud update and its up to you to go to their blog for all the info you need to get your wings updated to the latest versions, this will be a huge undertaking by Kala Bijoux so be gentle on her but as I and many people I know have wings from her store and are not in the group this is realy vital you know about it, and also the NEW UPDATE version will include an automated update so you never have to do anything again but accept the latest features YAY, how cool is that …MORE INFO HERE.

I hope you found all that I have shown today as Inspiring as I did and here is that clip I promised you, remember the sounds over the top of the music are awful I apologise but you get the general beauty of the piece .
