When you say things like ‘Yo” around Mel there are consequences, this is what we learned today… HERE

Like my new hat? isn’t it cute, in a deathly morbid way,but what else would you wear with a skin tone called ‘Dead”. I am chuffed too with the matching of feet to skin, yay for the Maitreya Gold HUD being so easy peasy. These are the skins about to be released at Red Mints booth at Skin Fair, they are the Frost series and the fantasy aspect is wonderful. I do also like that there is a more subtle version, as well as add on make ups you can get seperately.

Perfect hair for this style hat is the Roxy from Exile, with its brushed to the side look, I had the perfect platform for the hat, without having to do any editing at all – other than actually swapping the hats side, as it originally was on the other, but yay for copy paste.

The dress I am wearing is the new by 24 hours Annie dress, and it is sleek and chic. Definitely perfect for a femme fatale, and so able to add too with accessories and what not, but I left it all about the hat and shoes, and skin, and hair and….

Ok so now that I got my rant on earlier, now is the time for some pretty pretties. First off some beautiful new skin from Tuli, the Emma skin is a lovely fresh faced beauty, and now with the new tones and omg lush eyebrows you can play all day with the variet of make up choices. Now the eye shadows come on the base skins themselves and the lipsticks are separate, so with the ability to wear that many lippies with one shadow is awesome. I really like the new tones, but I am so loving the copper eyebrows as shown in the main skins pics.

All the better to show off the new hair from Exile, va va voooooom they get sexier each and every release. The second blonde style Stephy is actually a donation style for the fundraiser that Voshie Paine is running, so be sure to go and grab it to help out the little girl Kajsa and her family.

The other day Mel and I were out and about and he saw some leggings on a girl, and said wow that took some work from the designer, and I told him that I had them, and yes, lots of work to create such a complex design so well. Osakki since they reopened has had not only these leggings but many more, and some fantastic outfits that are very out there fashion wise, in the good look at me way.

In the top pic I am wearing some fun Pididdle items, with the fab patent belt from Maiiki, the yellow in the high waist skirt is just wonderful and the sweater is a cropped length so it is great having both items on all layers, giving the ability to make sure it all works. The Pea Coat trench I am wearing is system skirt love from Eclectic Apparel.

Eclectic has used the template superbly to create this lovely design piece. that can be worn as a dress on its own, or over pants or another skirt due to the use of the system skirt. This is the type of outfit that just screams late night rendesvous with dark and handsome men or women, whatever way you roll.

The boots I am wearing are the most recent release from SLInk, they are a great hiker style boot, and I just love their ruggedness that makes them totally wearable in the opposite more clean and sleek fashion conscious way. Or you can just go hiking, but I like my way better lol. There is an option to wear with or without the sock at the top, which is nice and easy to do with the hud, the leather is soft and comfy, and I am so looking forwards to more in the SLink line I hear rumors of other accessories :P.

Elikatira releases Footwear to bump and grind to

Neelika1

Vilda

Right now I have one of those toothaches that could cause you to take a hammer and chisel to your mouth. Having a toothache sucks, but having on for Christmas is just not fair at all.
Way behind in showing off the Nero items from Glam Affair, but with the upcoming release tonight of Elikatira’s NEW footwear, I was way excited. One of the stand out things about the Nero collection, is that it has pieces that you can mix and match, or completely change…just as I did in pic one, taking the sides of pants and making them into spiked wings. A little quirky I know, but it means that even if everyone was wearing Nero at an event, your Nero will look different and funna.

Downwards to the Secret boots, can I hear a resounding YUM…I think so. These boots are boots that don’t look just like boots, but more of an overboot boot look. The style of these is gorgeous, and the colours available are going to have boot lovers happy as clams. Lots of shades of browns and midtones, and the snow colour is amazing.

The Mistress dress from Glam Affair, is designed to expose the upper portion of the chest, adding the beautiful calypso bra from Eclectic apparel I soon took care of that, and added some dynamic print while doing so.You can do a lot with this dress, a shrug, a tshirt, whatever rocks your world. The ankle boots from Elikatira are also divine, they are called live and really should be more like shin boots than ankle as they go up just enough to be a tad more creative in style.

The black ruffled dress is a little bit more sedate, but adding one of the many collars from the Nero collection you have a bit more spice going on, The new Move pumps from Elikatira are going to be a go to shoe for many, the style is simple and can easily work with more conservative looks, but the platform and hell give it that ‘look at me’ factor…there are also some flats being released but right now I want to smash my face into a wall, so that will have to do.

Not my SL face though, because the new Vilda skin is lovely, comes with both dark and blonde brow options, and enough of a mix of make ups to make all happy, from your classic basics to some fun and frivolous shadows in time for all of the new year fun and festivities.DEMO DEMO DEMO I am wearing nougat tone, but there are as usual many to choose from.

I love comics, as I have said here on numerous occasions. Mel is a huge fan of Manga, so is Whimsy and her kids…but I unfortunatly find it really hard to read right to left. It isn’t just the collums etc, it is even in what order you read the characters words, and that is way confusing for me, I do not know if it is because I do read a lot of comics strips still, am hooked on One Big Happy at the moment – ah Ruthie you are the cutest 6 year old EVER! I guess I will just have to go back and try and try again.

Today is a hair day for sure, with the release of 7 stunning styles from Maitreya. Three of them are hat hair, and one is a new scarf style, that will of course go with the volumen scarfs buyable seperately at Maitreya. The first look is combining that street look of fall, Royal Blue created the coat and jeans for Call for Couture – almost over – and I added the bag from Lelutka and a sheer tank from Eclectic Apparel. The necklace I have on is the Gilded Virgin from Whippet & Buck, I bet there is a story to that name, and if I am lucky they will tell me. Mind you it is so delicate and beautiful that it could be innocent of any fun tales.

Second we have this gorgeous Nordic poncho cardigan from Aoharu, seen previously in a solid knit, the nordic allows for more colour. I have on an oldie but a definite must have, the savoir top from Maitreya, these come in sheer and solid and are awesome for so many mix match oppurtunities.I tinted the fantastic cable knit socks from Riddle to go with, and added the divine Drew skirt from Whippet & Buck. This skirt is fab, with a high waist on all layers, so that you can still wear a jacket if needed. It even has a delightful little pocket at the front. A delish outfit calls for delish boots, and these ones are from Stellar, I have seriously been neglectful in showing these, as I had them set up at my landing area at home for weeks to remind me to blog them, and then kept tping directly to the studio and not even seeing them. Bad me, but they are so snuggly.

The next outfit could have me start with the Christmas Carols early – ignores the fact that I sing them all year around, and drive my friends batty. The other night Newdoll was wearing one of these prettyful tops, and declared ‘they need to make more’ I agree. These are delicate and delightful. The red had me looking no futher than the ribbon skirt also from Aoharu, but it was seeing the hint of blue in the plaid waist of the top that had me going straight to my Maitreya folder for some much loved tartan leggings. Not identical but enough to be matchy matchy.

Lastly and a way to choose your own advventure, the Paige striped skirt from W&B is great, it has all that lovely flexi volume, with an empire line band, allowing you to add whatever you fancy to the top. In this case I went with corresponding colours in their own simple bustier. Works a treat and makes a dress to go to a regatta in. Staw bag for my picnic lunch and these posh booties from Gos that are delightful and safe for walking long distances. They are so nicely styled and definitely have an older style charm to them.

All of these looks combine the Castalia skin from Glam Affair. The skin is divine, the make ups are gorgeous, especially the sensual lips and smouldering eyes. You get the down there on seperate layers and tatoos, and all in all it is a very sexy skin…DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Alice, Alice who the bleep is Alice

I had an awesome night tonight, first off tping around different places with Newdoll and Whimsy. It was like old times, we were just missing Ashia and Justice, hopefully next time. We ran by the Artilleri SALE, making lots of OH NO SHE ISN’T sounds to eachother in skype, about items that are going to be discontinued. The upside is that it means more room for newness, and as we had most of everything, we are excited.

If you have some alts in need of a make over, now is the time though, 60L skins and all of the clothing is around that price too, male stuff also. I was excited about what I was going to post today, due to the new poses out by aDORKable, not only did they nail the sorts of sets that always are a much needed style, but they are including mirrors of every pose from now on, and even going back to change older ones. The fun that can be had with mirror poses is awesome, and even though they have been around before in other stores, they are the first to my knowledge to include them at no extra charge, so thats more bang for your buck WOOHOO.

Going all Brownzilla in the first pic, the oversized tote is fantastic and available from Addict @ Call for Couture – not many days left of that event, so hurry up. The chained necklace is also from there, and wow its a really beautiful one. hard to do lots of chain strands without them getting a tad messy and hard to edit, but this one fit straight away. Wearing another of the Swift hairstyles from LeLutka, this one is hat hair love, and comes texture change, so you can mix and match for days lol. The clothing is all deetalez, and I especially love the fabrics used to make each piece, lovely texture work, and really warm fabrics.

The next look gave me a chance to properly show off the Calypso slips from Eclectic Apparel. When I finally saw the slips come about, I knew exactly what style top I wanted to wear under, and even though I had older ones, this one I got yesterday is perfect. Adding the Lucid belt from Fri.day you would have your work cut out for you trying to get me out of this look. traveling up to the newish hair from Magika, Josie, and yes I sang that song all day of the release, I had actually read a comic of Archie and Josie and the Pussycats doing a battle of the bands a few days prior, so that didn’t help lol. I was loving the black and white, but a splash of red in the streaks, lips and bases of the fabulous ankle boots from G’field, these are also a release at Call for Couture and so lovely.

We ended off the night at the Albero Gatcha Festival and I probably could have spent every cent I had at the Theosophy one, because those bags are AWESOME. Make sure you get some, and if you get two Alice ones Newdolly wants one desperately.

In many of my posts, especially my early on ones, everything started with the hair. I love Second Life hair, I think that even though I started just after flexi was created, it has always been my favourite item of all things.The styles, the colours, the techniques, how they have changed over the years, what was popular once faded out, and then can turn around and become ever so popular again. The sculpties put us back into static hair mode, and when flexi mesh sculpts come about, the whole world will change again. Lucky for us Elikapeka Tiramisu is back, and back in a huge way.

Elikatira her new brand opened it’s doors quietly on the weekend, no fanfare or fuss, it was not needed, because as soon as the wind carried the message that she was open they came in droves. Many will remember the old between builds times with ETD, sitting on the side sims waiting for her to open, trying to cam in and get a sneak peak. I remember one such event that actually included free only for group members, two packs of unreleased hairstyles. To have these was to really feel something special. I even know a girl that will say she met me over a gift box at ETD, but in this case it was a misunderstanding I helped her with.

There are fewer and fewer stores around now that you can have such memories of, I have a few ETD ones, and now am so excited to have the chance to make new Elikatira ones. The new opening brought with it ten new styles, and one of those is a store gift, called Sey – nto yet shown. The ones I am showing today, range from casual to dressy, and all can interchange in that regard, but pointing out the second one which is Escape, as soon as I put it on I ran to google and looked up Sharon Stone Basic Instinct, and sure enough the hair is almost exact. True perfection for shorter hair lovers, with a definite attitude going on.

While I couldn’t at the time find the white turtleneck and coat, I took it to now, and mixed some Aoharu, Deetalez and Nyte n day. The Aoharu poncho coat though advertised as White, has a greyishness to it, so lucky for me the white knitted skirt from Deetalez that is gorgeous, was mod, and I was able to bring it to the same tone. A little revealing cropped sweater from Nyte n Day and to finish off the stunning fringe western boots from Anexx. I adore this look, and the hair, wowza. Back to the top though, I am wearing the new coat from Baiastice, this is a very nice cut coat, with shoulderpads, and adornments of gold.

Very stylish and worn with either pants or in this case the Calypso slip from Eclectic Apparel – the go to of the season – you can look amazing for any situation. I really like the somewhat messyness of the Away updo, it has a real lived in look, as does all the Elikatira hair so far, not too immaculate, because that ends up looking way too fake, this one looks like I have worn it all day, and with the removal of some pins and some finger tousling I would be HOT. My first hair in SL was pigtails, and I don’t care that I am 38 I will wear them in SL and I would damn well still wear them in RL, maybe not like the first ones, but definitely similar to these. Wearing with one of my favourite sweaters from Eclectic Apparel, I had all that skin to show off, that I added the lovely necklace from Exodi. Some gorgeous slim fit jeans from Deetalez – I love these  and they are not too low slung, so they are wearable by all.

With that and the next pic I am wearing the Prima sandals by Kalnins, usually a multitude of colours, but in both cases the all white options worked well. The next outfit is how I end the day, because it is too perfect to not want to stay dressed in and pretend it is a lazy saturday. The clothing is from Zaara, and these boho style prints and pieces are just perfect for the upcoming heat I am expecting down here. The fabric choices, the colour combinations all work in these pretty styles…adding some older Jewelry also by Zaara and the loose tied plait down the back in the form of Melody, I am totally loving the look.

You may notice I am wearing two different skins this post, the Phoebe 2 and Claudia 2 by LAQ, the up close pics are Phoebe 2 I will do Claudia 2 another day, but it is so amazing to see the difference in both, Claudia being like an older sister to Phoebe. Claudia 2 still have a lot of attitude while Phoebe 2 is still somewhat innocent. Try them both out, and they both come with hair base options, and there are a lovely amount of add ons you can purchase at the store now, including the recent addition of different sized cleavage options, and hair base/brow colours.

All the poses used in this post are from Frooti, a new store and not so new resident. Willow Zander has opened up her pose store at Elikatira sim, as you can see from the layout pic. I am so glad to see Willow having her own store, as many of you will know she has been the Manager behind Celestial Studios,and now Elikatira and of course a fabulous blogger. If you have been by the sim, you will have noticed there are stores that are empty, you can apply to rent at Elikatira, which is kind of awesome, giving everyone a chance from the start, rather than opening with a sim full. Sand Shack Surf is there already too, the store Emma built looks fabulous. Click HERE to SLURL’s Page. Picture :

Not so Bad is Oh so Good

NSB 1

NsB2

Now I could pretend that these are my two homes, that I come home to each night. But alas mine always end up with unpacked boxes everywhere and my VR Posestands. I did however decorate them how I would love to live in them, even if for only a day or so before they end up messy.

In the past the Not so Bad homes I have shown have had a very beautiful ethnicity to them, so it was surprising to me to see their two most recent releases in more of a modern range. The first and most recent is the BOW Apartment skybox, this gem is perfect for the home office style person. Stunning woodwork, beautiful textures and enough space to do all you would need to do in such an environment…it is just on the right side of cozy. My favourite features are the beamed ceiling below the loft upstairs, and the ability to colour your feature wall with the click of the control panel.

Most of the accessories and furniture are Not so Bad pieces, from other sets, but with the addition of some from Lisp Bazaar – a store I could take everything home from given the chance – and the adorable pumpkins on the shelf and in the corner in PINK and white, are from W.Winx, who has created the most beautiful pumpkin patches for people to celebrate Autumn and Halloween.

The Second House is the Modern House, and this one is HUGE, only one bedroom which is bizarre with this size house, but wow what a layout. Once I did the sitting room and other areas I did end up with a large space in the middle of the living area, not really feeling it as a dining room, so I think maybe another rug or two and possibly some kind of art piece could work, or possibly even something in the way of a room divider may make it less roomy and more homey.

My favourite space was the walk through in the centre, an open roof area, that has a tranquility all it’s own, adding some deck chairs and a bit of the sexy Codebastard Redgrave art on the wall, I could spend hours watching the water in here. The use of plants, water and bamboo, are a big win for me, and I just love the driftwood accents. The kitchen and bathroom items are all part of the modern furniture sets, which are seperate, as is all the furniture, and this time some art from Scribble’s gallery over the fireplace. By the time I did the decorating and what not, the Modern house came in at around 800+ prims, which is a lot, but for the size of the house, you would have that many and more, so definitely take the time to look around both builds and all the other incredible ones at Not so Bad, you will definitely be inspired for new home love.

The clothing I am wearing first off pants wise are from LeLutka, these are Fallen and Cargo and both stunning. The sculpts are great and the overall styling is just awesome. I could wear these every day with ease and there are even tartan ones in the fallen, so if ever called on for a round on the course, these are the pants to have. Mixing it up with Aoharu’s Military jacket over the Eclectic Apparels Calypso bra, must haves for sure, and then topping it off with the latest hat hair from The Strand, and you all know I love my hat hair wooohooo.

Wake me up before you gO gO

DrowElf

Drow Elf2

ELFAFK

Elf Fish

The other day I was checking out a store and found the most incredible items, of a theme that is not my cup of cocoa in Second Life, but I totally understand if you are going to go there, you sure as hell should have the most funna items in the grid to do so with lol.

So condsider me the Nanny Elf, because I have in the past had a whole group of little people around me and played all day, lol was way too fun, watching a conga line of cubbies trailing up a mountain. Anyway, again rambling lots and lots and lots. So anyway, the builds are all 10×10 and my way of thinking is that these would either make insanely awesome gifts for friends expecting, because over the years you will always see someone ask about such things in chat groups.

Or if you take out the kiddie aspect, such as the furniture for little ones, and the change tables – yes even those – then you could totally rock out the space as a photo prop if they are themed how you need. The first being Drow is incredible, and could also be the perfect room for a haunted house this halloween.  In the first pic I am wearing the complete Elf avatar as well, skin, hair, clothing it all comes in the set. The designer behind all these pieces is Gocha Merlin of !gO! an incredible mix of items in this store, so you need to check it out.

I had to keep the hair, skin and ears on, they are too delish.The next theme for a nursery is Tipi, all fur and woven fabrics in beautiful rich colours, and if you want to one touch can close or open the front of the tipi. I could so see pulling this build apart for the pieces for RP, the chandelier, the bed and sofas, and all those amazing rugs, not the mention the tipi itself are amazing. The sweater I have on is also from gO and the way it is made was so in keeping with the look, I put it on over the new items from Eclectic Apparel, the Calypso bra and slip dress, I will be showing more of those soon.

Next up is this fun wearable afk device, I did hide the glow parts in edit so you could see it better, my glow settings are nuclear. Not only is it fun to wear, but you can also change the message on the take, to either AFK, Busy or My Space…I have seen a few different variations of this type of thing, Whimsy has an awesome one, but this one is a touch more relaxed and again makes a great photo op, with me wearing more clothing from gO which is the Goth Doll set.

Lastly for now is the Mermaid nursery, I had to put it out there in Fashion Emergency that Queue the fabulous Hair Designer Mermaid needs to have a baby lol, just so we can get her this as a pressie, or again pull it apart and just enjoy it yourself. If when I had started SL there had been mermaid outfits like this from Bare Rose, and rooms as cool as this one, I don’t think I would have lived on the land at all, I was so disappointed in Second Life and the inability to live underwater back then. Even know why can’t they give you the option to parcel space without water :( it would be so cool to still have it outside of your build.

The animations I am using when not on poseballs of the build are from the Chocolate Addict AO by Body Language, if you haven’t seen it you need to, it is adorable on all sorts of crazy levels, from looking like you have ants in your pants, to just tra la la ing as you walk, so adorable.

Middle Mouse clicking on a link, or image in flickr/website etc, will open the page in another tab – things I learn from Mel. I should honestly make that a category on my blog, daily he teaches me so much. But don’t half listen and middle mouse the tab, because that closes it :P, but if you right click the tab and use the undo close tab, then it comes back up, HE IS A GENIUS!

So much to do, so much to do. Ok so again I am wearing Natasha from Glance Skins. She has such a petulant look, and I am finding it gets me shoes :P only joking baby, but it is kind of funny you watching everything I type. We have discovered in the last week and a half, that skype allows for screen sharing, thank you Marni :) and as much fun as it is, it now means my work gets edited before I even finish. * Wonders if that is where her full stop was meant to be.

Ok this is way too funny. Mel bought me some divinely sexy shoes from NCore yesterday, they are the Shark shoes, and have all these amazing options: anklets, studs, zebra stripe nailpolishes, socks/stockings and more. I particularly love the ability to change the colour of the heel and sole of the shoes to more funky style colours.

The first dress I am wearing is from Eclectic Apparel. Her clothing is fantastic, and her new store looks fabulous, and is so easy to navigate, I suggest start buying everything from the right and work your way around to the left. The new Military dresses are killer sexy, and the fat pack is a steal. I love how the unbuttoned look has them pulling off a kind of asian look, so two styles in one so to speak.

All of the hair I am wearing in the first pic is the new hair from Maitreya. They just released these fabulous styles, and I am totally digging the very different look of Lila, which is the four piggies. I love when hair looks like it is your own hair restyled into different looks, because of the beautiful textures of Maitreya that is done with ease.

The Beertilicious dresses – wonders how drunk Cynful was when she named them – from Cynful are a sexy tube that can be worn with just about everything. The colours are great neutrals and bolds, and the added breast sculpties gives them a more 3D look. These dresses are wearable without the prim, just in case you want to wear something over the top that may not work, but in this case I am wearing the new Military Coat from Aoharu, that not only works as it is an open fronted coat, but also because it offers two attachment points, so that the dress prims don’t detach – not that I couldn’t reattach myself, but hey, when someone wants to do it for you, who am I to complain.

Amacci just this past hour released these super beautiful long styles. How Carina makes hair is just incredible, just looking at the individual prim work makes me envious of her talent, and her concentration abilities. They move so well, and the styles of them are just a tad wavey and enough straight to have you going oooooo ahhhhh.

He made a Robot out of my boxes

FrouFrou


Frou Frou 2

Hair Fair 2010 is upon us, so many incredible content creators under many roofs. I am going to try and do as many posts as I can and hope that you enjoy not only mine, but the dozens or so I have seen so far.

The first store I am featuring is Frou Frou, brand new store, and the first styles I have seen are just divine. The first hair is Natasha Has Hot Rollers and as a woman who used to hot roller her hair and then shake it out, at least once a week this was a must. The hair is stylish and grand with a definite grace to it. This is the bigger of the two Natasha styles. This beautiful hair do gave me a chance to show off not only the latest release of stunning shoes from Maitreya Gold, but also my squee worthy love affair with the Yokes from Whippet & Buck.

The beaded Yoke is just beautiful and Whippet & Buck outdid themselves with not only providing it as a seperate layer to beautiful anything you want, but also on a combined sheer tank option, with all layers so you can be a little more descreet by stacking them, but in this case I am wearing it with a fabulous corset from Eclectic Apparel. I combined the look using the skirt from a really old Ghost release, so much fun mixing and matching Ghost. I am using a 2.1 viewer official actually, that allows so many more layers than ones in the past, and remembered that over at The Dressing Room Glam Affair had some face tattoo layers for sale, so grabbed those and stacked them, with also the lipstick I made for Mima by LAQ – still free at Flair in the blue box if anyone wants them.

The second style by Frou Frou is Mrs Andrews, I asked the creator while she was setting up what that was about, and it ended up being based on the character in the original Freaky Friday movie, not the JLC one. I love a concave cut bob, I once had Aleri make me one and it was a huge success, I invision this one being the same.

I found the most peculiar sim the other week, by found I mean landed upon, seeing as I am sure it was not lost in the first place. Anyway Whimsy and I ended up spending a fortune there, in small spurts as there were so many gatcha and lower priced items that it was astounding how much we did spend. Anyway while I was there I got this fabulous belt, and it was under a 100L and had all these attachment options and is really great prim work. It looks so cool with the new Jodpurs on crack by Royal Blue, as Royal Blue has just released a slew of seperates in time to pad your winter wardrobe plans. Whether casual classy or highly elegant, the Frou Frou hairs work as well as the Maitreya Gold Hana Sandals of all win.

The poses I am using are from aDORKable, they are the official Posers of Hair Fair and if and when you have time, you really need to check out the group and prop poses they made for the fair, the hair pulling ones are AWESOME.

I just got told that Newdolls hubby told her that last year at Hair Fair he gathered up all my red boxes and made a robot, I wish that I had seen it, because it would have been a hoot. No red boxes at Hair Fair this year, but you will really enjoy all the fantastic styles there…all donations are going to Wigs for Kids, an increible cause. Ashia Tomsen has put together a list of the Slurls for Hair Fair 2010 to make it easier to see what is what and where is who, HERE
