Whimsical

Standard

We <3 Roleplay is right around the corner.  With two short days until opening there December Round will not disappoint.  Rack Poses is releasing two sets of poses which will help complete any fun fantasy picture.  I am using Whimsical here which comes with 5 poses each with a flute prop.  (I tinted mine for this photo to match the copper theme!)  Soul has created heaps of fun fantasy ears which have a great little tattoo tinting system to enhance the edges.  They are suited to match with their skins but will also be giving skin creators the option to make their own.  I personally had little trouble tinting them to match my Glam Affair skin but as always try the demo!

Speaking of, this is one of the many stunning skins you can pick up at The Arcade.  I had a lot of fun mixing things up and breaking away from my standard Asia tone and playing with Africa.  Her machine is full of a great mix of tones and makeups which should please most everyone.  Good luck!

Just Getting Started

Standard

I knew the minute that I picked you up
It was gonna be a wild ride
You kissed me like you couldn’t get enough
Barely made it out of your drive
Burning a little rubber at the red light
Got a little warning from the blue lights
It’s only going on 9 o’clock but feels more like midnight

And now for something completely different.  To answer the questions of plurk, no, he does not come with the Arcade set nor is he the extra secret rare.  He is my avatar.  Well not Autumn, my MALT.  Sorry!  I just felt he had that rough around the edges feel that this Garage from Consignment required.  Can you collect all the pieces including the rare Motorcycle and building?

I want to toss a special shout out to Harvest and Katya who after trying to molest me last night assisted.  I was having graphic card issues that I have hopefully fixed but they brought a pose and moral support and helped me get the raw shot I needed after some technical difficulties.

I would like to say I came back from my family outing as calm as this picture may seem, it was anything but.  There is a nice feel to getting back home though, falling in to that familiar pose at your desk and at least finding your zen there while you toy with some items old and new.

It is December for Arcade, and really it is December with this skin from Glam Affair.  December comes in a nice selection of skin tones ranging from Asia to Africa along with some stunning rare Pearl and America options.  Good luck on your gachas, every single one is gorgeous.

The Fantasy Collective is in full swing with its Celestial theme and there you can pick up this fun outfit from May’s Soul.  The wraps are available in a variety of colors with sheer and solid options and the bikini pieces are available in standard metal tones.

Do you dare to go bare?

Standard

I have been tagged more than once to do this challenge and I finally got to it.  I am not sure why it took me so long, it really is quite simple, or maybe it was just that hard to take off all the extras.  I took the challenge seriously and did remove all make up layers, lashes, piercings, hell even my teeth (which just sounds creepy.)  What I do love from doing this is you can honestly see how gorgeous the skin you wear is, before you start layering over it.  I really took the time to appreciate how much work goes in to something like this.  Now keeping with the rules, I have not edited this picture.  Not one single bit.  There are no shadows, there is no liquifying (nope not even my nose!)  and there are no filters or post effects.  I shot this in the windlight I walk around SL in (caiwl) and cropped it for the safe of removing some plain background.

I never know what will happen when I got to take a picture, but this particular one took me to a really good place.  With all the warm fall colors coming out and the earthy nature of the Harvest Moon items at The Secret Affair everything just fell together nicely.  Of course that is always easy when Glam Affair keeps making gorgeous skins.  You can pick up Angelica Version 2 over at Kustom 9.  You wont be disappointed! <3

Love Like Winter

Standard

The 15th is such a big opening day in SL, and today was an example of that.  I bounced from event to event (when I could get in!)  First things first, this skin.  Glam Affair has come out with Angelica Version 2 and it was love at first sight for me.  I am a sucker for Aida’s red lip tones.  You can demo and purchase this skin over at Kustom 9.

Now Secret Affair came storming in with its Harvest Moon theme.  The must have list from there is long and includes the amazing headpieces from Zenith.  Fear not, if you are put off by animal skulls there are also flower ones.  The Forge has released Harvest Moon necklaces in Black, Gold and Silver all displaying intricate tree work.  Last but NEVER least, May’s Soul has a gacha available featuring furs, bracers and even these rare tops.  It was very worth the play, the quality is top notch.

Wicked

I think Kirsty and I have done a Fantasy Gacha picture together since we first met, which was about the time of the first one.  Tradition stands, and so do we in one of her poses for the event.  The priestess set has a nice variety of poses complete with some staff and eagle variations or this rare couple/friend one.  I think it is safe to say both of us are pretty clad in their offerings from the gacha save for a couple of items.  This stunning heart shaped head accessory from Keystone can be snatched up at We <3 Roleplay right now and Kirsty’s lovely hair can be picked up over at Truth.

Oh hey there!  I am back from vacation and hopefully refreshed and finding my groove.  I came back to so many amazing events opening up I tried to highlight a little of each here.

Can we talk about how cool this pose is from Rack though?  The Fantasy Gacha theme is MMORPGs this round and she embraced the Priestess and the Paladin in her sets.  These poses each come with the necessary accessories be it bird, staff or both.  Also Keystone is present there and made a stunning head and armlet set.  The armlets are common and the headpiece rare, will you try your luck to see what you get?

Enchantment opens for another round with Rumpelstiltskin as its theme.  Tableau Vivant did not disappoint bringing two sets of hair to the mix so I decided to have some fun with their dreads.  Remember when you demo the dreads are on a different color system than their regular hair but there really is a color for everyone available.

Uber prepares for another round and Glam Affair has released Lauren in a variety of macabre makeups.  I was personally fond of this look but there is enough variety to make everyone happy.

Finally Peqe won my heart with this release for We <3 Roleplay.  The dresses come with a color change hud for the bodice offering lots of options to change to your desired look.

I wish you all a very happy Fantasy Filled shopping and good luck at the gacha!

The Fantasy Collective has opened its doors for an epic birthday round.  With a Renaissance Faire themed bash you will find yourself tossing lindens at every corner.  I crammed a lot in a single post because it was just that easy to.  Do yourself a favor and stop by.  ♥
