Skin Fair: League

~See hi-res enlargements of this pic on my Flickr stream~

If you haven’t found your way over to Skin Fair yet, now would be the perfect time! Things have calmed down a bit, and script limits have been removed (but please continue to shop considerately!).

It’s no secret that I tend to wear skins from the same designers over and over again. I do get attached to certain looks, and find it very hard to change things up! But with this year’s Skin Fair, I resolved to try a little harder to push my own envelope a bit. In today’s post, I’m wearing the newest skin from League, Erin. This is really a gorgeous skin, and I”m enjoying it a lot! If you’re already a League fan, you should love this one. If you haven’t given League skins a try before, definitely check this one out!

As always — avoid surprises, and be absolutely sure to demo skins for yourself — preferably with no clothes on, and with the light settings you usually use. Your view can be quite different than mine, for reasons that have nothing to do with the skin itself! It’s just a good habit to get into!

Final Fantasy Festival

Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends. Although I don’t have a romantic partner at the moment — my life is full of people who fill my life with love and joy every single day!

I found this terrific fantasy outfit at the Final Fantasy Festival, open now and running ’til February 21. This is a great little shopping event — quick and easy to navigate, with some interesting finds. I picked this up for the wings alone — but the whole outfit is very nice. It’s available in a variety of colors. Be sure to check out the demo that’s available before purchasing~

FaMESHed ~

Another round of FaMESHed has begun, with some really wonderful items, as usual. I fell in love with this classic jacket from Emery. I can’t seem to get enough mesh jackets! They are wonderfully versatile pieces. Two features that I really love about this one: (1) there’s a version in the box that includes the top (with a couple of neutral color choices), as well as a version you can layer with your own tops. (2) it has some really interesting detailing on the back, which you can see in the picture below. The jacket is available in a variety of colors — neutral and brights… and I expect you’ll see another version on me in another post. Demos are free, so go check it out!

Happy Friday, my friends~ Like many of you, I always look forward to another Fifty Linden Friday …. and that round of shopping inevitably leads to even more shopping! Today I picked up the mesh racerback tank from Miel. (and the pants are a previous FLF item from Miel) I’m loving everything she is putting out these days! And I especially love that she is putting her 50L stuff, including the demos, on the marketplace — what could be easier than that??

I’m also wearing the lovely Renee skin that Glam Affair has at Collabor88 this month (always an amazing deal!) And tho’ I’m not usually a blue-eyed girl, I couldn’t resist these indigo eyes from Insufferable Dastard’s VIP group gift for January. They are from her City Lights line, and some of my faves!

Have a terrific weekend!

Happy New Year, my friends! Hope yours is getting off to a terrific start — mine is stupendous! My plurk and flickr friends already know that I got (sl)married on Christmas… so I’m still in the giddy honeymoon stage — bear with me!

One of the things I love about a new year is taking a look at a fresh clean year stretching out in front of me, and thinking of some of the things I’d like to enjoy and pursue. I’m not nearly ambitious enough to take on a 365 project — but I think I’m going to shoot for a 52 LOTD project :)

This week is a fun rave-ish look for a club event, and I really enjoyed putting it together. Color makes me happy — and a rainbow of color, even more so! One of the lovely things about getting acquainted with some of the club/nightlife sub-cultures in SL is discovering a whole world of specialty designers that I don’t often see on the fashion feeds. Club-goers pass this information around in their own networks, and there are some really thriving little businesses out there.

My adorable hair is from new-to-me designer, A&Y. The hair style is fairly simple, but the real beauty of this hair is all the fun stuff in it! And each little piece, including some of the hair strands, are color change — so you can wear crazy rainbow rave hair, or something a little more subdued and/or color coordinated. And jumping to the bottom (see pics below), you’ll see my stupendous boots from also-new-to-me creator, NeurolaB Inc. Not only do these boots look great, with a lovely shape — but they come with a multitude of texture changing options, including the neon lights. What you can’t see in the picture is that the lights around the base of the boots are animated, and you can change the animation of the lights to a variety of patterns (or static), which is so much fun for clubbing. If you haven’t checked out either of these designers before — be sure to take a look!

Check out the credits for all the terrific pieces in between … they are classics, and will stay in my wardrobe for a very long time!

Happy New Year, my friends … make it a good one!

More Vintage Fair! and other great stuff…. it never stops….

If you haven’t ventured over to the Vintage Fair yet, this weekend would be a fabulous time! I expect the lag has died down, but still plenty of time to shop! One of my new favorite pieces from the fair is this wonderful mesh dress from coldLogic. It is so easy to wear, and so fun. Definitely a retro look, but it could also be styled with a contemporary flair. And, I’m really loving it with these customizable oxfords from Monso, available at FaMESHed. It’s possible I’ll never take this outfit off!

Also from the vintage fair is the fun little necklace featuring a dramatic comic book illustration, from Addiction. She’s got several comic book scenes to choose from. I, of course, choose the redheaded heroine… or is she a villain??

Also be sure to check out this pose set from Bounce This, currently at Fluid. The included gun is texture change, and just what I needed as I roamed around the grid…

Eliza Haiku — Go with God

Eliza Haiku -- Go with God

Last night, my dear friend in RL and SL, Eliza Haiku, passed away after a long struggle with cancer. (in this picture, she’s the redhead!) She had been fighting with her body for years — and SL was a very special place for her to retreat to … to forget, to feel like her old self, to form amazingly strong friendships during a time when that was really hard to do in RL. Her mind and her spirit, both of which infused her virtual life, were bright and active right up to her last few days.

Eliza, my friend and sister, you were a light in the lives of so many people, both corporeal and virtual. Altho’ I will always think you were taken too soon — your life meant something, and had the kind of impact most of us hope that our own lives might have. You will be missed.

Go with God, and rest easy in peace and love.

The Culture Shock event is almost over, and by all reports, it has been a huge success! Congratulations to everyone who was any part of that. You have a couple more days to finish up your shopping, so I have just a couple more things to show you. I haven’t had a chance to show you even a fraction of what is available at the event, so if you have the time, definitely do go over and wander thru the rest of the shops.

In this picture, I’m wearing another jacket from Lapointe & BastChild — this time a classic denim. It isn’t mesh — just normal sculpted parts, with a very versatile and easy-to-use resizer. The gorgeous theater seats that I’m sitting in are a pose prop from Captivity Co. — they are doing some fantastic and interesting mesh pose props, and I’m really looking forward to seeing more from them. The prop itself is beautifully textured, and it comes with a variety of poses, both male and female. If you blog or take pictures for any reason — you can never have enough poses and props! These are worth checking out~

Culture Shock! Ingenue

CS-Ingenue
~See hi-res enlargements of this picture on my Flickr stream~

One of the easier-to-wear uses of mesh that I’ve seen are the minis or pencil skirts that use system layers along with a mesh panel. There is really no need to change your shape or do fitting of any kind to make these work — for most people. (always — do try on a demo, just to be sure it is going to work with you, your AO, or other typical animations — most demos are free, and there is just no reason not to be sure!) This pencil skirt from Ingenue is a great example of such a skirt — and my first such piece! I absolutely love it, and am thrilled to be able to wear a nice-looking pencil skirt in SL!

It just seemed natural to pair this skirt up with another color of the mesh Jude boots, also from Ingenue and available at Culture Shock. I couldn’t resist adding a little sass to this retro look with the newish shortie top from Sn@tch. These were a recent Sn@tch-n-Grab deal, but you should still be able to find them on the “new” wall, I think — the whole pack is still a great deal, and will be super-fun for summer looks.

Yup — I’m still wearing these fantastic mesh shorts from *G* Field — this time in gray (I’m starting to think I should just have gotten the fatpack… :D) You can also see another example of a Redbird lipstick… and be sure not to miss the gift necklace from Apple May Design (pencils– very cute!)

I also have to mention this super-cute newish hairstyle from Truth … if you like ponytails and/or casual, slightly messy hair — this is a must have. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this one most of the summer! I’m also loving the newest eyes from Insufferable Dastard (click thru to my flickr stream to see them closer up). The ones I’m wearing were the VIP group gift for April — and I believe they are still available in the store. These are actually my favorite color in the whole set — but there’s a large variety of colors also available in the store.
