It's a Magician's World- SN poses

“There is magic, but you have to be the magician. You have to make the magic happen.”

This fantastic pose from Something New is at the September round of TWE12VE Monthly Event- Theme Magic http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brewery/79/200/21 .

The prop includes the chair ( with pose ball), the cane/ bird add-on prop, and the hat/cards add-on prop. With a magical theme this round Something New has pulled a trick or two out of their hat and as well as two magical releases there is a special low priced item in celebration of the Anniversary round of this event.

Other items used in this post include some gorgeous new eyes from Avi Glam, you can pick these up at the recently opened round of Shiny Shabby. Available singly or in a fatpack , the color range is extensive ; in this photo I have used the Rock color which is a beautiful deep blue/green.

Kaya

Kaya gown, nude, Azul

Please excuse my lax posting of late, I hit a rather rough patch emotionally and needed to take some time to re-balance. I still have issues with my health and on-going fatigue then add some emotional stress and grief ..well I was feeling anything but Serene. I hope to be back more in SL but it may be a few days before I get back on my blogging train. Meanwhile I wanted to share some gorgeousness from several of my favourite SL designers.

Kaya is the name of this recently released mesh gown from Azul, available in 15 colors , one marketplace limited- shown here is Nude. The gown is  Fitted Mesh (Belleza,Maitreya,Slink,Standard Sizes)  with separate Rigged Mesh Sleeves (Standard Sizes) but  not worn in these photos , a Flexi Train  and a Non Rigged Mesh Circlet ( also not shown in this post).

Although this gown includes a lovely circlet I had selected to use this fantastic style from EMO-tions which you can find at the current round of We Love Roleplay. The Meridia hairstyle comes in the usual range of haircolors and includes optional crown, beads and add-on plaits.

Sarah ( LL applier) , Avi Glam @ Cosmo + EMO-tions

Another event special is the beautiful Sarah skin ( Lelutka applier) from Avi Glam which you will find at the current round of Cosmopolitan. There are six tones available, shown here is the lightest. I really appreciate skins like this that look gorgeous bare while still allowing you to change up your look with adding make up appliers ( with no conflict between make up already on the skin). Don’t forget that the body appliers that match these skin tones are available at Amara Beauty, so head to Cosmopolitan and try those demos until you find the tone that you can’t resist.

Other details in these photos : Eyes are Avi Glam Silky Eyes in Helio which were released at August Shiny Shabby. Jewelry is the Elite version of Vintage Pearls ( V3) from Zuri Jewelry. Location for photo is StoryBrooke:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Baja%20Norte/107/149/2002

Comprising of a base dress (Belleza,Maitreya,Slink,Standard Sizes) ,Flexi Skirts, Flexi Drapes and Non Rigged Head Band ( which can be re-sized by menu) .

Great group gifts

Group gifts are here for the grabbing

A super quick post because I have so much time and so little to do.. strike that.. reverse it  ( anyone get the reference?)

Yes it, was Willy Wonka: So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you. [ source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067992/quotes ].

Like a kid in a chocolate factory I have been so excited about the group gifts that have been appearing in SL this month, so I thought it was time to show a few more. These are not stores I blog and some do have joining fees, so investigate before you join, and then enjoy.

Truth Hair: 350L join fee, monthly FATPACK of a new release hairstyle. Lot’s of the new releases come with styling huds so you end up with much more than one hairstyle. Shown is Tori from the current month, past group gifts are  only available for group members to purchase.

Erratic Updates: 99L join fee. August group gift is this great little dress, only Maitreya fit , includes a hud with a range of light and dark colors.

Hucci: actually a subscriber gift rather than requiring you to join a group, head to the mainstore and tap the subscriber. You will not receive the gifts already sent out but the next one will be coming your way! For example this months pumps shown above ( sizes included- Lara, Slink, Belleza, TMP.

NB. Background is not a group gift : Sayo: Biscayne Boulevard ( gacha item) and pose is  Breathe out, Le Poppycock.

I’m leaving my hat on

SE- Aug group gift; I'm Leaving my Hat on

 

Baby, take off your coat real slow
Take off your shoes

Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes

An elegant event

Azul, Dakota Gown @ Trunk Show

The Trunk Show is a wedding event featuring everything you need from a classic to themed, romance abounds at this special event. Even if you aren’t planning a wedding there are plenty of wonderful gowns, décor, poses and makeup to give your SL a little extra elegance. For example this gorgeous gown from Azul, made to fit a variety of mesh bodies ( standard mesh sizes also ), and available in a range of colours  so don’t feel that you have to limit this to a wedding.  As well as the gown the package includes optional veil and separate floral headpiece ( sits at the back and can be worn without the veil). The off-the shoulder bodice and delicately patterned fabric will make the Dakota gown a winner at any summer formal event.

Also available at the Trunk Show is this gorgeous updo from EMO-tions. It includes a selection of coloured floral pieces that sit above the loosely gathered knot of hair, giving this romantic carefree look a little extra flair. The Trunk Show is open until 18th September so grab a SLurl and enjoy the experience : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Flawless/24/47/28

For these photos I used the Catwa, Catya ( bento) mesh head again because I wanted to show off this absolutely stunning skin released by Avi Glam. Available at the current round of Limt8 in a range of colours , which match perfectly with the omega applier for mesh bodies from Amara Beauty.  This clean skin is so delicate looking in this tone, but it looks equally lovely in the range of 6 skin tones available -from 03 through to 10. I added subtle lip colour from Izzies and the beautiful Catwa Mix& Match First Date lashes from Oceane Body Design.

Strapped but not bound

Strapped but not bound

Sometimes items appear to be made to go together, but in fact they’re by different creators, at different events often separated by months. I felt that way when I saw the recent gacha from Salt & Pepper, from which I received several different pieces including this skirt ( a RARE)and corset . I was sure I had a top that featured a similar buckle detail but was cropped high enough to not get in the way of the corset. After a little hunting in my inventory I found it, this cute grey top from FDD – I think it was at the Shiny Shabby event earlier in the year, it comes with a built in bra but you have the option to hide that, which I did. I added another gacha find- a short two toned hairstyle from Drot called Seven, and the tartan Hax boots that were a recent FLF offer from Livalle.

This fun pose prop called Pipes is from Exposeur and I picked it up during the close down sale of their in-world store.  You can still find Exposeur on the Marketplace though : https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/16816
