all tutus should be pink

pink tutus final

I wasn’t sure which look I was going for while putting this outfit together. All I knew, was that I was going to wear this pink tutu, dammit! It was hard to choose what to wear it with because it looked cute with so many different tops. I opted for an applier top by [aDiva].

[aDiva] has, in my opinion, some of the most beautifully detailed, realistic applier clothes that I’ve seen. Creator AnneJoy Paine has been a busy bee lately making appliers for The Mesh Project. When I first shopped on her marketplace store I was so sad because most everything was for TMP only. Lately when I go there I see she’s adding more and more versions of her creations that are compatible with other mesh bodies as well…yay!!! Thank you Miss AnneJoy, keep ’em comin’ please!

I don’t have as much time as I’d like (lol, do I ever??) but I could do a post alone about the leather collar and gloves. Since I don’t have much time, you MUST check them out for yourselves.  Their marketplacesl description pages (check credits) have close-up shots of both items so you can see the details and omg the options!!! for these products.

The **RE** LUX Chained Heart Collar is resizable and comes with a texture-change HUD that gives you your choice of 10 leathers, 10 metals, and 10 hearts. It is also Open Collar scripted with a full perm hud you can give to your partner.

the girl’s got game

gamer girl fin 1

It’s only been a week or so, but oh how I’ve missed my little blog. I wish I could clone myself and have my clone do my menial rl tasks and I could sit and blog my little heart out. But alas, that’s not going to happen so I must enjoy the time I do get to blog and make it worth while.

The Dirty Princess Gladiator Heels definitely make it worth while in my opinion. The moment I saw these I had to have them. I’ve wanted some black gladiator heels for a while but I was having a hard time finding a very tall pair that didn’t have that gold lion on the front. At first I thought they were discontinued because I couldn’t find them with the other DP items on marketplace. As it turned out, my settings somehow weren’t on adult and for some reason they are an “adult item” on marketplace sl…I guess because they’re so hot. 🙂 But it worked out because I tp’d to the in-world store and was able to look at their beautiful creations in person pixel.

I’m also trying a new skin in this post. I’ve had my eye on Izzie’s Neva for a while now. I’ve probably demo’ed it at least 3 times and I finally decided to get it. I love the full brows, the pouty lips and the cute little nose. Izzie’s is fast becoming one of my favorite places to shop. Her jewelry is beautiful and she’s making more and more applier clothes, socks, gloves, etc.

The clothes are all by Coco Designs; only 2 purchases though. The shirt comes with the scarf which can be worn separately and an additional tee in a different color. The black tee’s “additional color” is a white tee.

The jewelry is all by Epoque. I’ve bought a lot of their items on marketplace but I tp’d to the store this time and went on a late-night shopping frenzy in there. They have amazing jewelry, and I’m a fool for a nice set of dust knuckles.

Last but not least, the Gamer Bag by Le Primitif is from The Arcade Gacha! It was a gift from one Miss Neva Seljan, blogger extraordinaire, and she gave it to me right before I did the photoshoot for this outfit. It happened to match perfectly. I think it makes the whole outfit..with the shoes of course. It’s great to have a friend that is a Gacha addict because then you get their doubles, hee hee. Thank you so much sweet Neva!

Romy and GizzA Kokolores poses fin2

GizzA Creations’ new collection, The Anne Marie Outfit, is a beautiful ready-to-wear dress that is perfect for the changing of seasons. A belted mini with a contrasting colored top, this dress is available in 6 different color combinations, and comes with matching t-strap pumps and clutch.  This classic dress will be a favorite in your inventory. It is so nicely made and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received while hopping around the grid in this number.

I’m wearing my new Romy skin by Glam Affair in this post. If you visit this blog often, get used to seeing me in it for a while, I’m kind of in love with it. 🙂  Romy comes as a plain base skin and you choose all of the colors and features you’d like to personalize your own look with.

I haven’t experimented with Glam Affair’s The Mesh Project yet, which I know is very customizable. I may delve into it soon but right now I’m very happy with this look. If you’d like more information on The Mesh Project you can check out Glam Affair’s web site, here, or take the taxicab above and check it out in-world. So many goodies so little time…

Have you seen the freebie “mecca” in front of Pure Poison’s mainstore yet? Maybe it’s already been blogged and reblogged a million times, but for myself, it was my first time seeing it. Being the fashion addict that I am, it was quite a rush when I saw what nice gifts they had available. You have to join the group, zero fee, yay! … then just go nuts! Grab whatever you like, or in my case, everything. They also have four or five gacha! group gifts where you get one free play per machine. Prepare to be awed.

Shown above are the accessories worn in this post: The shoes and the clutch come with your GizzA Anne Marie dress. The colors vary, depending on which dress color combo you decide on. I always seem to gravitate towards the teals. The triple rings are LaGyo (scripted to prompt color-change menu for the stones upon touch), the single gold ring is part of the ISON Safari Tribe set and the earrings are from ANE. The Tisuki necklace and July bangles are just a couple of the beautiful finds from the Pure Poison free kiosks. You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

Essences Ginger Gacha Fin 1

I mentioned this skin, Alex in my last post. I got it at last month’s kustom9 in a Gacha machine. I knew from the picture that I would love it and I do. Even the red is growing on me. I finally found some more Alex skins, though, so I can have my normal coloring back now. I haven’t been able to find Alex in Essences, so I don’t know if it will end up in the main store, or if it will just be a special “event” and/or gift skin. I think it’s so pretty that they will have it in the store eventually… fingers crossed!

To get Alex with your choice of brow color (and all the other bells and whistles) now, you can find 3 beautiful versions at Uber. I’ll feature them in my next post, so stay tuned for that.

If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s a new monthly themed event owned by Truth Hawks and managed by Miss Kaelyn Alecto. This month’s theme has been Vacation and features creations from 35 of second life’s top designers. Strawberry Singh has a post, here, with a list of the designers and links to pictures of their Uber items.

gingersnap accessories final

I had fun with the accessories in this little “ensemble”. The beaded [glow studio] Mauri earrings and the New Biarritz Beaded Collar from MG look like a set together. You can wear this necklace in a variety of colors. Simply touch (click on) the necklace to bring up an appearance menu. You can find it at faMESHed this month, along with it’s actual matching earrings, and many other irresistable items.

The gladiator sandals are New from Tee*fy and if they look familiar, they were introduced in last month’s collabor88 Safari selection. I haven’t been yet for this month, but I just looked at one of my favorite blogs, Seraphim, and now I’m foaming at the mouth to go. It’s c88‘s 3rd birthday and there are a ton of designers participating..maybe all of them..and then some! My heart is literally pounding I’m so excited to go lol. I don’t think that’s normal is it?? Never mind.

If you’re not familiar with the second life blog Seraphim, you need to be! It is a constant on my bookmark bar. They always posts pictures of every item in more events and gifts than would seem humanly possible. It’s great for checking out event items without dealing with the lag, or during a time when you’re unable to log on to sl.

This post is far longer than I meant for it to be, but I can’t sign off without commenting on the amazing manicure and pedicure appliers for Slink hands and feet from beauty by alaskametro. A huge variety of rich beautiful colors..they make me think of OPI polishes. 10 Linden Each!!!! What?? I couldn’t believe it and I’m going to buy everything she makes before she realizes how much more people would pay for it! Just kidding..well..not really. I’m unable to find an in-world store so I’m assuming the only way to get it is to shop marketplace sl. If you’d like to try before you buy she’s offering the free applier below..a sample of her beautiful work and 7 free colors! Thank you very much Miss Alaska Metropolitan, creator of  alaskametro<3.

FREE Essences Gift!

Essences Free Gift fin 1

A good friend of mine mentioned Essences some time back and I had been wanting to go and check it out, but just hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Then last month’s kustom9 had a Gacha machine from Essences and I fell in love with the picture of the “rare”..Alex was the name of the skin. On my first try I saw that I had gotten an Alex rare..and that’s all I recall seeing so I was so excited and felt so lucky. By the time I got around to putting it on I saw that it was the ginger, and Poppy is a brunette. She may not be one day, but for now I like her as a brunette. The ginger is quite beautiful though, and I am wearing it in world now, hoping to blog it. I’m still on my search for Alex brunette though..

Which was what led me to Essences where I picked up a demo of every one of their skins, I do believe, and found their beautiful free gift, Jamie, which I am wearing in this post. I have on the teeth tattoo that comes with the gift but it’s optional..

~Click here to tp to Essences Skins~

So, after several posts of wearing my Slink physique mesh body I took it off to try on the new Essences gift skin and all of my demos. It is a beautiful body and for taking pictures it makes such a difference if you want a more life-like look..but I have to say taking it off was the equivalent of walking in the house and taking off your bra after a long day at the office. I guess because it’s still so new to me and I just can’t seem to quiet that little voice inside me reminding me of all of the thousands of things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I guess at this point I’ll wear it sometimes, but maybe not all the time. Maybe it will be a different story when they come out with mesh bodies with little boobies…they aren’t so bad, but the shadows are still there. Jus’ sayin’.. :p

Maitreya Top final

There are so many awesome fashion events happening right now in sl..as always, lol. I’m not complaining, although it is quite addictive. I’m always afraid I’m going to miss out on some “once-in-a-second-lifetime” deal…and I won’t even get started discussing the Gacha machines!

Maitreya top Mutresse Clutch and Lion Cuff final

above: One of Lethal Couture’s kustom9 creations for August; The Lion Head Cuff in black and gold (other color options and items from this creator available at event).
The Mutresse Muci Clutch is a must have for your sl wardrobe. It comes with an attachable hud (shown below) that gives you 13 different color choices for the leather, and 4 different metal choices for the clasp, chain and studs. Also, 2 versions of clutch included in folder; 1 regular and 1 for Slink casual hands.

I’m still in my Slink Physique..still trying to get used to it. I don’t feel “comfortable in my own skin” yet…literally, lol. It also makes me sad to think of all the things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I see a lot of things happening quickly..as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m seeing clothing appliers all over marketplace. A lot of the the applier items that I’ve seen remind me of the outfits that we first tried to make on the old sl clothing sliders. I’ve seen a few cute things too, and some beautiful lingerie.
Will our pre-mesh items become obsolete? Does anyone wear their old outfits and/or accessories anymore? And if they do, will they be arrested by the MESH police?
