Shhhh they are sleeping, or at least turning in for the night.
So lets start with the checking out &Bean, I have probably redirected a billion people there this week all wanting to know where the skin was from in the latest Maitreya Hair ad.
So last night I decided to go and check it all out myself, under the beautiful rainfall that fills part of the Cupcake sim I found the store, more thanks to Ashia though, who after me getting lost found me a direct tp.
I was more intrigued with the clothing I have to say, the demos of the skins are all there and fab, but when I saw this skin it was a Must Have, it is called The Pale Anger – Sale at Armidi, which I think is a hoot of a name, if they did have one, it would be that rough and tumble lol. The bruises, scratches and black eye and fat lip are incredibly detailed.
The outfit is the I Kill Her set, also by &Bean, I love the caged undergarment style of this set, perfect for recreating some Scarlett styles. The Grey and Black lace teddy is well worth grabbing it for even if the cage isn’t your thing.
The hair I am wearing is called Carissa, it is by TRUTH, and is a lovely pigtails style with a loose look thats in that thrown back and together look we often have to adapt to.
I saw these boots from Tigerclaw and I fell in love, they are the Police SWAT boots, and they also have a blue light option you can buy, I felt that the red lights would be easier to co-ordinate with, they are so much fun to stomp around in, and really well made, the textures are beautiful.
The Maps Jacket and Slick and Shiny pants are both seperates from &Bean, the jacket has with or without prims options, and a preferable way to wear either, I went totally the opposite. Under the jacket prim cuffs is actually a pink texture variation, so you do in fact get two looks for your money. Silver and shiny, too hard to resist were these leggings, they come in other colours as well, but this dark steel like silver was mine.
The perfect accompanyment to the outfit, are the New release Kalnins Fashion shoes called Coquette, now I will let you in on a little secret, these shoes are actually cheaper on Xstreet HERE , so check them out at either place – and it isn’t really a secret because Maris Kanto the owner told me himself lol.
The shoes not only have beautiful preset colour combinations, but also the ability to choose which colour where, depending on what strap or part of the shoe you choose at the time, the presets are a great guide as well, I used one of them and then just changed one strap setting to get the charcoal, so it was easy. They have sounds, shiny , colours all contained in a drop down menu, there are also feet lights which is a novel approach, but hopefully no one will use outside of a studio or photo shoot need.
The downside to these shoes is, that if you do not have a modify shape you will have your hands full trying to mod them, and I am not even sure you can to a size 0. They are designed to wear with a size 11 foot, and if you have some height to your avatar they look splendid. There are demos there to try first so you can see how you fare. The style is just stunning, and they are definitely a spring into summer sandal heel.
The hair I am wearing is too cute, it is Torn by Red Queen and I just love how the hair is wrapped around the neck as though like a scarf, those with long hair at some stage have either done that, or wanted to when it’s been freezing cold. The back of this style is just gorgeous as is all the Red Queen hair, thick and long, with playful styles and attitude.
I am wearing the New RGI Sunglasses by DeLa, there are no limits to her creativity, the sunglasses are in various colours that are rich and vibrant, with different lens colours depending on what you are wearing or in fact your mood. The shape of the glasses is vintage at its best, with the large frames covering most of the face to give off that lady of mystery look.
Behind every Lady of Mystery is a little girl, or inside at least.Back when Loco Pocos first opened it’s doors to the public I had all these exciting conversations with Damien and Washu. One such conversation was about the ability to indulge in Loco Love but stay regular sized and shaped.
Finally it is here, The Loco Poco, Poco Pals. They are just adorable, and yes they are all wearable plushie style Loco Poco characters, I was so excited to see these, and not only can you wear them but you can play dress ups with them. They have an inbuilt Menu that allows for choosing clothes, facial expressions, Name them, what colour eyes, and fur they will have and so on.
This is me putting all my Poco Pals to sleep for the night, and yes I still have my ALF Doll and my Dolph the Stuffed Dolphin and my very own Panda Bear that is 37 years old lol. So next time you are in a dither about what to get a friend for a rezday/birthday, anniversary or just to make them smile, this is the ticket.
The skirt I am wearing is the Signaling through the Flames tutu, and the tank is the beautiful Reckoner tank that comes in two options, both of these are also by &Bean and are seriously girly in an antiquey way, love them.
The hair I have on is from Lamb, the store is also at the Cupcake sim so it was easy to grab, it’s the Teased Up style that I believe is the much requested hair from the hat/hair previously released, with a tad more backcombing done, which I love doing RL too.
Not all the Katie Faces made the pic, but these are six of the eight lovely New Make Ups for the La Sylphide Katie make ups. The lips are so soft and supple, with a light coat of lippy and the soft eyeshadow under those divine and long lashes.
Stephanie has done an incredible job on the lashes of these skins, I am not wearing any prims at all, and the uppers are superb. When the skin creator takes this much care in doing each lash like this, wearing prim ones is an insult. Make sure you check out the demos yourself.
A big shout out on the New poses by DARE, these are the Antoine Picard inspired poses, not only are the original artworks beautiful, but you cannot not take a look at the vendor ad by Chance Greatrex, this vendor ad to me is just so gorgeous it reminds me of 1920’s Musical Advertisements, I just love it.
