Swinging

pntsuitxx Both Shoetopia and this round of My Attic are ending on the 30th of November. There are lots of great donation items at the shoestravaganza, like these boots by Ryvolter, which feature colour-changing straps and toe. I recommend you plonk down some cash for thigh-boots in pale jade by Pixel Mode and knee-length buttoned Victorianesque boots in plum by Lassitude & Ennui. There’s also a delicious pair of evening shoes tied with a drooping bow in the House of Fox booth.

Bela Tolsen of TuttiFrutti enlivens The Attic with her slim-fit jacket and pants in retro fabrics. The items are sold as separates so you can mix a bright red jacket with a pair of pea-green pants. If you think that’s wise. Maya is a classic not-at-all-nerdy hairdo by MissAllSunday Lemon for Wasabi Pills. And Elvi, Elvi is my favourite face ever.

Casual we’en

casual Hallowe’en is so dressy! Everyone’s wearing a black gown and a big headdress. Portia needed to relax into the season with some loose tweed pants, a crop top and a cashmere beanie from Tutti Frutti. Bela Tolsen is tempting us with a dazzling array of hats and scarves in gacha form. That’s right. You have no control over what you get…and you love it.

Ugly dawn to dusk

dayugcl For Designers United 5, Sopha Portal of My UglyDorothy created soft, appealing skins for a Baby Doll, a Pretty Doll and an Ugly Doll. Each one is painted to look like a ball-jointed doll. Seeing as I struggle every day with feeling ugly, I immediately chose to go with poor ole ugly doll. Who isn’t ugly at all. Though she tries to be. Her wide eyes are the perfect setting for the new mesh peepers from Mayfly. Look close: the whites of these eyes are opalescent.
uglycasy Bela Tolsen’s new leggings are available this week at My Attic (at The Nest). They can be had in sober shades of rose, blush and drab green, as well as the grape shown here, which rock a little harder when you pair them with your octopus shoes. Which you will. I love Rachel Breaker’s gacha shoes from The Arcade. They’ve got more personality than many avs. [My apologies to studded-lizard lovers—all two of you—for mistaking these shoes for octopus. I should probably also apologize to octopus lovers for suggesting that these majestic, if sneaky, creatures would waste their time munching toes.]
uglyfancyc The ugly doll has a date. Her 7891 ear cuffs come in a pack of gold and silver for 55 little Ls at fi*friday.

Break them in

jeanssm Bela Tolsen always does jeans for her TuttiFrutti line, and her spring collection offers some sophisticated yet form-fitting takes on the old classic. In addition to a faded pair splotched with clouds and a light pair, she’s created the dark and flowered pairs Portia models today.
puppettutti Since I am still planning to succumb to the Server Side Baking apocalypse, I’ve been feeling pressure to dress Portia in everything she’s not yet worn. That means finding some silly stuff in the closet. Do these puppets make me look fat?

One of the things I love about the Christmas season in SL is the glitz. You won’t see me wearing gold or silver with black in my real life. But Anorak can be as glam as she wants to be in her new skinny jeans, a classy take on a 21st-century trend from Bela Tolsen of TuttiFrutti.

dorothyskin

We finally get a look at Dorothy, and she’s not ugly at all. Sopha Portal’s latest skin focuses on softly glimmering eye makeups and orange and pink lip colours.

dorothyclp2

For Dorothy, there are three caucasian skintones to choose from and eight makeups in each pack. All makeups come with teeth versions, and the pack includes a pretty shape not shown here. Cleavage is sold separately.

The Plastik has a ton of Xmas-themed clothing on offer this season, as well as a number of gift-givers for group members. The Daunting Fate corset worn here is a regular item, available all year round for ever and ever and ever.

Bela Tolsen of Tuttifrutti has just released an exciting assortment of leggings to suit every taste. There’s a classic Burberry check, a delicate camouflage pattern, a cool aztec print and any number of colourful abstract and geometric styles. I chose the Running leggings to go with Portia’s free coat from Essences. I love the unusual colour of this coat and its distinctive old newspaper print. A Womenstuff Hunt gift, the pack also contains a black version for those of you who are mourning the loss of Elena’s humanity.


Be sure to check out the Unhinged Festival, which is raising funds for Eku Zhong. Treatment for thyroid cancer has left Ms. Zhong’s skull fragile, and she needs a prosthesis. Given the circumstances, I have to applaud the organizers’ boldly black humorous logo of a skull with an unhinged jaw. Many of the items at the festival are skull-themed, and there are plenty of gachas to make you crazy. Sakide’s Cranium Ring, shown here, comes in a series of bold colours and a series of pale shades. I also played gacha for a pair of lassitude & ennui’s beautifully textured flat suede boots, which rise to mid-calf and feature an embroidered sugar skull. Get your ghoul on for a good cause.
