SL16B – Gifts – Linden Homes – Exhibits

SL16B_Logo_Final

 

If I timed this right this post should hit the stands just as Second Lifes Sweet 16th is open to the public. It opens at 10am SLT on the 20th of June 2019 and it is going to be an exciting event. The Hop & Shop as mentioned yesterday has gifts in every booth, and there are a hundred stores as part of this wonderful event. All booths also have discounted items, starting at 20% and going up as high as 75%.

The clothing and accessories worn in today’s post are all GIFTS at the event. Even my Slink Hourglass Bundle is discounted during the festivities as are the Physique Original Body Bundle and the Physique Male Bundle, the shoes I have on are the Slink gift for women at the event.

I have included pictures of all the booths, and you can see how amazing this event will be and how much time you will truly need to cover it all.

Also part of the SL16B celebrations is the reveal of the new Linden Homes theme. The theme is very different than the builds so far, and for those wanting to not just live somewhere but actually cohabitate these will be so much fun. I am already looking forward to immersing myself in these themes many opportunities for community development and role-playing scenarios. I can also see a full region of pink in the future because nothing will be more fun than getting all the neighbours on board with that idea.

I ran into Patch Linden while he was going over the showcase area, and he was very pleased with the plans for these and other homes in the future. He also has a Meet & Greet planned for this coming Monday – Calendar of Events – so that he can answer questions about all things Linden Homes related. As this is just a rough layout keep in mind that the Moles are hard at work creating the final layouts of these new areas, and I cannot wait to see them finished. I actually saw the new Taylor Swift video a few hours after running into Patch and laughed hysterically at how just on point the Lindens are.

 

The Sweet 16 inspired theme of the overall event is throughout the many regions dedicated to it, and if you explore the exhibits done by many Second Life Residents it is fun to see their own take on this Retro vibe. Old Movie Theatres, Beach Party scenes and some very big statues, with bubbles and puppies and even a huge hydrant and cuffs dedicated to first responders. Take the time to visit all aspects of this great time of the year.

One of my favourite sections was the time capsule like build, with all the years’ history of Second Life gathered together. I won’t say I was not disappointed to not see ‘and along came Sasy Scarborough’ in the 2006 section but I did squeal with delight at Hair Fair being mentioned as that was also its very first year.

Another exciting thing that Patch told me was that the four new avatar looks at the Welcome area on the Pizazz region are for limited SL16B time only, so make sure you grab them as a memento of the visit.

Then when you zoom over to the Hop & Shop you can start collecting all the gifts and shop like a crazy person like I did, and look as fabulous as I feel right now.

If I was going to make a stunning dress with cut out panels, I would call it Grazia too. Often you see named items, and you know who they were named after, this dress is spot on. The style is sophisticated, and alluring, and just everything that says Grazia (Horwitz). I love the style of this dress, and I was able to colour change my shoes by Empire to match the black and brown look.

The short hair, also an homage to Grazia, not by the creator but by me, as it is when she rocks out the shorter styles that I go YEAH! and this one is perfect. The style ensemble was wrapped up with these bracelets by Mandala, that have such a powerful look to them, they are called Yolo, which gives you even more attitude.

There has been an update to the Maitreya Lara body, and while taking her for a spin I decided to hit up a store that makes exclusively for the body. Thalia Heckroth the store and the person behind the label, has a lot of style and sophistication, so you are going to love the looks you can come up with there. The top and skirt today are a recent release, and I will be showing more throughout the week.

Mixing some old and new with some great accessories, and having a great look that can suit every day and into the evening. I love this skirt it is so pretty and feminine, great date night wear.

Paparazzi

Paparazzi

The theme for this round of Collabor88 is Espionage, but I went a different way with the fantastic items on offer. I felt that with the scooter, the camera and looking so fabulous, I could be one of those crazy Paparazzi people, but with class. I mean who would not let me into a red carpet affair looking so gorgeous, and while my camera may be huge, who is going to question my dedication to instagram.

The theme is definitely fun and exciting, and what guy or gal would not want to get their spy on. Or even together, as you have some incredible pose sets from Ma Vie who is a guest at this round. I am using some of her lovely Mystery Lady poses, and they fit the look perfectly.

While my clothing is not from the event, it fit together, and made it possible to dash around on my scooter, even if a bit chilly. The outfit is by Pixicat, and as it is a Hunter themed item, who are the hunters of our time now, but Paparazzi, see so compatible, so in the now, so making stuff up as I type.

One of the stand out items at this round, is the Pink Fuel release of LeLutka appliers called Vera. For those familiar with Pink Fuel, cute and young and adorable is her go to, but with this skin, she has gone in a more mature, sexy and alluring direction. If you have always loved Pink Fuel, then you need to get your runners on and get on over to snap this up, the make ups are divine and the additional options of lipstick are wet and shiny and seductive all rolled into three different sets.

The shoes by Ingénue had me at hello, because not only did I own a pair similar in the 90’s that I have very sexy memories of, but how much like a ready to wear weapon do those heels look. I love the platform sturdiness of the style, but then mess with me and you are going to get a solid gold spike to the head….perfect footwear for a girl who may just get caught somewhere she should not be.

Finishing off the look with the stunners by LaGyo, the fishnet headpiece will always win me over, I have worn a few over the years, and even made my own. I love the look, and this hairstyle by Iconic that is at this current round of Hairology fit perfectly. The earrings are dazzling, and I can only imagine that there is a story to tell about those, but again, who would deny me entrance to anywhere with rocks like that on my lobes, not as if a grunt on the door at anywhere is going to know diamonds from zirconias, am I right.

Dance like no one is watching

Dance like no ones watching

If it was the mid to late 80’s and it was Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening, you would find me on a dance floor. If I could manage the Monday, Tuesday and Thursday I would too. We had a lot of raves, and then morning after day dance parties as well, so on public holidays that was a huge thing here….so gross Tuesday morning.

This look is completely me back then, the oversized earrings – which are gorgeous feather earrings by Zaara – and all black with coloured shoes. My Mum used to threaten me with depriving me of new clothes if I did not get over the all black thing, but that never lasted long, she loves meeeeee.

This set by Pixicat is a perfect skirt and mid top, the fabric option is reflective enough to get you all the attention, and the skirt flits just right when you get your groove on. I went over to a club I had seen in search, and it was packed, just enough to get a pic of me getting my dance on. I even added some great particle hand attachments from Coles Corner. If there was such a thing as particles dancing attachments in RL, I would have been the worst offender – glow sticks were boring. I adorned myself also with some great rings from Minimal, I did need to move them around a bit, but they resize so easily in edit, that that was a painless task and so worth the effort.

The side pony was my go to often, and the hair from Exile nailed it, but then so was changing my hairstyle at least 5 times a night, up  down, back front, it all happened… a bit like event shopping in SL by the time I have visited three I have changed so many times I do not know where I started.

The skin I am wearing as an applier is a recentish release by YS&YS, it is the Teresa skin, and the hud is fabulous, as it has moles or freckles and moles and freckles and brow colours and make up, it is an all giving all loving look.

The perfect finish to the look is of course the shoes, with the legwarmers built in. They are texture change warmers, so it is the shoes you pick the colour of when purchasing. They are named Portia, and when I was a teen I loved that name, it is from Merchants of Venice a book we had to read in High School,  so definitely in keeping with the time period of my life, so thank you Fri.day for that blast from the past.

Shine a light on me

Shine a Light on Me

Wearing Sunday hair on a Sunday for me, means that you get to shop today and wear tomorrow and still be on theme. Of course why would you want to limit yourself this hair is wonderful. Not only is the style great, but the scarf option and its texture change colours and prints just makes it so many options of wear. There is also an unrigged without scarf option, so just from the start it is two styles in one.

It is the last 10+ hours of My Attic for this round, and I will be sorry to see it end…I have met some lovely people at the event, as well as had some comical occurances. I of course have my own Flair items up, some being the Flair nails, and others being the combined efforts of W.Winx and Flair. We did a fun pose prop set, three of them actually with playing cards and pin up style poses, you can see ours, as well as everything HERE.

Collabor88 is also in it’s last week, with the items being shown today being just perfect for the theme. The Betty swing dress is from The Secret Store, and it is a great swishy dress, for swishing and swaying all over the place. There are other colours and prints, but this black was amazing, it is not easy to get black to look perfectly black and still have some shine to it, but this dress has that in spades. It also has a texture change belt option, so I added some contrast with the red, seeing as red, white and black look so striking together.

It also gave me the chance to take my new pet poodle by MishMish for a stroll around my studio. Not only is it so sweet looking, but if you click on it, you get really nice messages of love and fun, then also when you walk it walks and when you sit it sits.

If its only 10+ hours left of My Attic, then that means it is only 10+ hours left until the opening of The Arcade. Two of the items in this post are must haves from the event. The first is the light I am leaning against. It is by 8f8 and not only is it perfectly pretty and I really wish it was possible to get copy versions of them for decorating a sim…but it also has a resize script in it, which worked out great, otherwise it would not have been visible in my picture. It is actually part of an incredible Ice Dreams set you can see more of on the shopping guide linked below.

The other items are these Jolie shoes by Ingenue, they are made for the Slink High feet, and are a lovely extremely high vintage style shoe. Honestly with that high a heel it is no wonder I need to lean against a light and rest my gams. I don’t usually wear stockings, but as soon as I put this look together I knew it needed them…off I went down to Lacuna Inc and there were the Semi Opaque hipster tights. They come in packs of four colours and work with appliers for Slink feet as well.

Soft Serve

Soft Serve

I often wonder what would happen if I just did a credits only blog post. We joke all the time about it, how people would assume that there was more being said by me not talking, than if I was to talk, because I generally talk so much. I wonder about that, if people that do read my blog would be surprised if I just suddenly had no words, would you ?

I was hopping around today and came across this store on marketplace, Amiable. I really wanted to see if they had more than their MP listings though, because you can never really tell if someone keeps their marketplace up to date or not, without visiting in world on occasion, or being up to date with their released through subscribo’s or group notices. I also wanted to see if this divine dress had any more options, as I was sold on the white, but I was still trying to choose between it and some of the florals.

The white won me over though, as there is a need for this style of dress in all white, that every girly girl needs in her life. There is alpha loading in the dress, and even though my hair is long and rigged at the front, be aware that the alpha in the hair will mess with the alpha in the sleeves – I photoshopped mine – but you can just wear different hair, because the dress is just that beautiful, but pay attention when demoing.

The style, the a line style and just how adorable it is, makes it all win. I knew that I wanted to have equally awesome hair for it, and when I saw the NEW RedMint style had this amazing cap in white, with a trim that I could match to the brown trim of the dress collar it was a perfect match. The hair actually has two tone options, but I just wanted that brilliant black to really contrast against the innocence of the white and brown. The hat has a hud option for hat and band, so you can play around with that, and the black hat with white band looks awesome.

The look is finished off with the strappy Seattle shoes from Essenz, which I have been wearing off and on all week, because even though white shoes are not usually my go to, this style just had to be in white for me, and the combination of this look is fantastic.

What better way to look all white and frothy, than in front of a Milkshake Vending Machine, the Collabor88 item by Flowey for this round. How cool is this thing, I did have to make it bigger though. It seemed too small to me for a vending machine, and yay mod. There are other colours and no milkshake in the opening option, as well as being able to get a milkshake to hold from it. Must have items if you just want to add some fun to your sim or your home, I think it suits our studio perfectly.
