Sometimes a sweet notion

93lxIt’s Pleisure’s shockingly 4th anniversary! And the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is opening on the 1st of February. That’s two reasons for Portia to swan around in pauldrons. The flowers-n-chains pauldrons and headdress are Zibska’s contribution to the gacha carnival. There are many many lovely colours to win. (Most of those will preserve your av from the purple, violet, mauve, lavender and plum limbo in which Portia dwells.) Those of you who win rare will snag the full-colour set.

Fine vintage

hofm I never blog Collabor88. It’s tough to get in on the first day, and with everyone else blogging it, by the time I get through the door, the whole collection has been covered. This time, however, I decided to see what I could put together and then have the fun of comparing my look to all 263 others. Color.Me.H.O.F has been the highlight for me in the past few months, and I was quick to slide Portia into the film noiresque Victoria dress. I worked against my usual instincts to match makeup colours with the dress and chose a red-lipped, darker-toned skin from Glam Affair.
hofst I got lost in a fantasy, wondering just how disheveled a woman like Portia would look if she were dressed like this. Lucky for us, there are four offerings this month from D!va, and all are only 88L a colour. It was easy to experiment till I got the messiest tresses possible.

Needs some shelter

gobr2l

Portia discovered some depressing rain at the DQ Maze, where a player may win prizes if she tries out the bed and the harp. There’s also a movie theatre showing a wonderfully morbid cartoon. Waiting in vain for another three-prim zombie, Portia models some fall steals: her Reckless Abandon coat is only 55L at this week’s fi*fridays; and her !gO! skirt is only 90L at the current Perfect Wardrobe. Portia’s sophisticated Bag 0320 is a new mesh release from h.m.a.e.m, and it comes in black and rain-grey shades as well as the mokka shade shown here.

Anorak missed her bedtime and sees her skin sizzle in the still-strong sun of fall. Her drop-hem skirt is part of Sakide’s Huntress outfit for The Dirty Turkey Hunt. Her twill jacket with grungy shirt (all in one in mesh) is Sugar and Cyanide’s gift for the Womenstuff Hunt. Anorak’s sexy platform boots are a new release from LpD. The snake-skin-patterned Geena boot is available in black, shown here, brown and beige. There is also a matching bag.
