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.

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.

xoxox Sasy xoxo

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.

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.

My Posestand is by VR and available on OnRez HERE!, not only does it have hide/show, but also has 3 options for changing poses, lights built in you command on/off in chat, and it rezzes a prim sphere around you that allows you to turn your camera 360 degrees and take pics without moving your stand, the sphere also changes colour on chat command too, its brilliant!.
