Sweet stuff

fond farewell I had an overwhelming urge to do something cute. If you knew that the overskirt for Pixicat’s Wonderland dress is tintable you’d combine red and burgundy too.
gorgeous girl MUDSKIN’s Sopha Portal has released Rose, her latest beauty, as a Chapter Four 2-for-1 special. Each of the five available skintones features a similar rosie-goldie eye makeup but changes up the lipsticks in a seductive array of shades. You’re in luck if you’re all about the lips: each pack includes Nyam Nyam, PXL Sweet lips and Loud Mouth appliers.

The cyborg wore panties

lara's undies I made a mistake, spending a bundle on some fancy *oUvUo* panties made only for The Mesh Project body, which Portia has never worn. I messed about with the free basic TMP body and realized I’d have to buy a skin to match the body unless I wanted Portia headless as well as topless. I could have gotten away with showing the undies on the default body, GIMPing the gaps that just would not slider away. But I’m a perfectionist, so I decided that this was the perfect excuse to hop on the mesh bodywagon. Why did I buy Maitreya’s Lara? Price. And the Glam Affair association. (My inventory is like a Glam Affair glam affair. But that’s partly because Birdy, my fave, stopped making skins. Please come back little Birdy.) Continue reading

Get your goat

getyourgoat According to the Chinese calendar 2015 is the year of the goat. I logged onto Marketplace to find a free goat tattoo to mark the year and found a demon. Nasty-ass goats are popular among Satanists, metal-heads and conspiracy theorists. I wanted something friendlier, so I opted for an Intrigue Co. gacha goat plushie named Magnus. Continue reading

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.

Ruffled

assez2l You have only a few more days to shop the current round of goodies at The Gallery Gift Shop. Portia wears a big ol’ ruff from Aesthetica, which I shrank down to fit her dainty frame. Portia’s lingerie, a breast-baring bra with matching undies (not shown), is by Chocolate Atelier. It’s available in red or black. The Twisted Hunt is running from now until September 30. The King of the Skies mask is a standout gift from Contraption. It can be rezzed as decor as well as worn. Untwisted types must stop in and pick up the gift at Dilly Dolls—a beautiful pair of sleek boots in charcoal suede. Twisted types might enjoy the dingy white ruff and crazy clown makeup from goth1co. I’ll let you know if I spy more awesome gifts.

Sea Hole in my heart

newhole On May 31st, Drinkinstein Sorbet, one of my most most most favourite creators, will be closing her shop The Sea Hole. Until then, everything is 50l. You know Ms. Sorbet’s work from Collabor88, which she founded. Her touchable fabrics, sophisticated colours and signature sea-themed embroideries will be missed. (Or they will stay on Marketplace?!) Several bloggers have said goodbye with a pic of the Valley Dress, so I am following suit. If you don’t have time to scour the racks of The Sea Hole before it closes, make a shopping list from the Marketplace shop, or take my advice and search out the Nicosia Sun Suit, which is perfect for summer. If you have a sense of humour, check out the Octo Dress.

I’ve blogged The Sea Hole’s wonderful creations many times, but I chose to rerun only this pic because, unlike many of my older, pre-GIMP photos, this one could be improved. Plus, mermaid on yer back. Credits.
