Iona the fair

SMD Iona @ We <3 RP Nov

The November round of We Love Roleplay ( We ❤ RP) is open and Silvan Moon Designs has released another gorgeously detailed mesh outfit for ” everyday” RP wear, after all not everyday is a formal ball even in roleplay.  This lovely layered dress has the option to add the leather jerkin and wrist guards or leave plain and enjoy the ombre style fabric.

I’ve actually included three different Lode pieces from different gachas for this picture,  Hand Accessory – Spiderwort Bouquet [blue],* Head Accessory – Fuchsia Crown [painting] RARE
and Head Accessory – Passiflora [pastel violet]. These are all older gacha items however you can find most of their past gacha machines available at the store.

The hair is Truth’s October group gift, I love that there is a full range of color huds AND lately styling huds too, give you so many different ways to wear one hairstyle, a really generous group gift. On top of that, it is the 1st anniversary for the Truth VIP group so there is a 250L credit gift this month ( available in the store for a few days only, wear your group tag at the time).

 

Lode + Truth+ Avi Glam

Other body details are the same as recent previous posts, Maitreya, Catwa, [session] and Avi Glam. These beautiful eyes are the Natural eyes from AG that you can find at Shiny Shabby ( I realised after I had multiple pairs of eyes on so the pupil part of the eye which should be black appears more golden – sorry about the misleading effect).

Poses: Gypsy, Purple Poses

There’s a little Devil in all of us

A little Devilish

I want to get this post completed so that I share the news promptly about another worthwhile cause that’s behind an upcoming event in SL – For the Love of the Devil.

I was fortunate to have early access to the event, and although most of the designers were still setting up when I stopped by I can see this is going to be a great opportunity to get some fantastic items whilst supporting a fellow SLer through some difficult times. Items I picked up include the Kimmy hair from Mina and the  Love the Devil Necklace from [Cynful] ( multi color options via hud). I won’t include the SLurl until after the event opens so be sure to stop back or check out the FB page : https://www.facebook.com/For-the-love-of-the-Devil-186995291869902/ .

For the love of the Devil Event- Publicity information

“This year, in May and June a friend of many in Secondlife, Andrea Damone (Devil Damone) went in for what should have been a very routine surgery. But things did not go to plan, and Andrea spent many weeks in an induced coma fighting for her life.
We are blessed that she has fought her way back and although her recovery continues, she is home and getting stronger by the week. Unfortunately the cost of keeping Andrea with us has fallen on her greatly. She has many expenses and bills resulting from this ordeal that she has to now face, while continuing to maintain her determination and fighting spirit through physical and emotional therapy.

Andrea had no idea of our plans, but many of her friends have wanted to do something to help. It’s hard in Secondlife to offer support, when often we are so far away from a friendly hug, or a knock on the door with offerings of support. We decided, what we can do is try to help her with the burden of these expenses the only way we can.

“For the love of the Devil” which we found fitting as her Secondlife name is Devil 🙂 (Although it should be angel ♥)

Event start: November 4th

All proceeds will be going directly to Andrea to cover her medical costs. ♥”

The Union of Souls gown will be available in a range of dramatically dark colours which are perfect for this Halloween season.

Teardrops and my eyes

Teardrops headpiece, Zuri Jewelry + Vivi eyes- Amber, Avi Glam

I am very excited about having been accepted into the group of Avi Glam bloggers, as anyone who has been visiting my blog recently will attest I appear to have fallen head over heels for these eyes.  Not only are they beautifully rendered but they come in so many easy to use options. In these photos I am showing the recently released Vivid eyes, which are available to purchase in a fatpack or individual colors of which there are twenty. They range from  Frost, an almost white color through to a black version, Coal. I selected the Amber color and added some makeup from Alaskametro to emphasize the gorgeous color . Makeup used includes : London lipstick and On fleek palette  both by Alaskametro and both as Lelutka makeup options.

Something I especially appreciate with Avi Glam eyes is the different applier options included in a pack. You receive a pair of mesh eyes with a hud for these, plus if you use another type of mesh eyes eg those that come with some popular mesh heads- Catwa and Lelutka each of specific huds made for them but there is also an omega applier option included! I used the Lelutka applier option and as well as having the option to select eye size ( S, M, L), you can select to color eyes individually allowing you to create a look of heterochromia if you desire ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterochromia_iridum).

Teardrops and my eyes

The beautiful headpiece worn is one of the newly released Teardrop headpieces available at the Zuri Jewelry mainstore, this option is the Black diamond and Grape Amethyst version. Although I am not showing the earrings you will find that there are co-ordinating earrings also available.  This hairstyle from EMO-tions is called Pippa and is available at the current round of Enchantment. It comes with an optional headpiece of it’s own which I will show in another post soon. The gown worn is called Thalia and is a previous release from Zaara. Poses used are from the Citrine series from an lar [poses].

Xia, of Azul

Xia, Azul

Xia is the name of this sexy top and skirt combination from Azul, which you can currently find at the On9 event. Available in a range of 8 colors, be sure to head there to try a demo and pick up your favorite before the event closes at the end of the month. This fun hairstyle “No Champaign” is from No_Match, also at the On9 event, with the blonde packs being at a slightly lower price during the event.

I must confess when I was styling this outfit I was slightly inspired by Xena ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xena:_Warrior_Princess ) , though a rather glam, night club kind of warrior princess. The Isadora headband from Zuri Jewelry is in the display stands at mainstore, remember to wear your group tag when purchasing this and you will get a refund. The armbands are a gacha from Promagic and the shoes are Cleo from NCore.

Azul + No Match+ Zuri Jewelry

The stunning ocean hued Lucent eyes from Avi Glam are enhanced by makeup from Oceane Body Design : Eyeliners Fat Pack 1 – OMEGA  and Lovely Lipsticks FP 2 – Lelutka [HUD]. Oceane is the creator behind this dewy soft skin as well,  Gina skin Perle Omega [HUD], shown here on Lelutka Simone head.  In the last post I mentioned that this is currently available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair – I will include the SLurl again below so you can try the demo.  Photolight used is Strawberry Singh’s Close up and poses I believe are from my collection of poses from oOo Studio.

Softly she goes

Malie gown , Azul + Calania, EMO-tions

Love comes softly,
When it’s softly learned.
From the hands of ones care-givers,
And to what they for your life discern.

When love is given softly by another,
One can’t help but pass that feeling along.
In helping out one in need,
Or loving words written in a song.

So pass some gentle love along,
Give it all away to those you meet.
Show them how great it feels to be loved,
And then hopefully they too will love repeat.

Love comes softly – Linda Winchell [ Source ;    https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/love-comes-softly/       ]

EMOtions @ Hair Fair 17 + Samantha, Zuri Jewelry

Soft pastels invited me to seek a gentle poem of love, not of lovers but love shared from one person to another, from a parent to a child, a friend to a friend , someone to a stranger. Love isn’t always grand gestures and romance it rests in simple actions, a smile, a kind word or deed done for no purpose than the need was seen and the love shared. My styling today features a lot of designers that I admire and love- their dedication, creativity and passion for their brands. So in no particular order I want to mention my details:

Azul- The gown I have selected is called Maile in the tone Sakura, though there are 15 other colors also available. I noticed this gown includes a huge array of fits in it : Maitreya, both Slink, all Belleza, Ebody plus fitmesh ” standard sizes”. Then you have options to add on the sleeves, as well as the flexi skirts and train, gorgeous movement and color. SLurl : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/joia%20azul/128/128/1103

EMO-tions- Calania is a gorgeous updo with optional flowers and ringlets add-on, currently available at Hair Fair 2017 as one of the fantastic four new releases.  Each pack purchased has a 25% donation to Wigs for Kids. Plus there is a free gift there, you have until 16th July to visit, EMO-tions at Hair Fair : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rhodium/130/216/23

Each set includes necklace, earrings and bracelet. For members of the Zuri Jewelry group don’t forget to wear your group tag and enjoy  25%  instantly refunded ( non-sale items).

Other details: my skin of choice lately has been Lisl  from [Skinnery], an applier designed for wearing on Lelutka mesh head, I use Simone. I added makeup ( eyeshadow a tint from the LL hud)- lipstick from Arte, I do hope to see more LL products in this store . I reduced the intensity of both by using the slider on the mesh head hud. Eyes applier is from Avi Glam, Lucid in Grey, which included mesh eyes, Omega applier, Catwa applier and LL applier all in the one pack. My pose is Shy Chic from Picture This.

Another fair has opened and this is one not to miss if you are a photographer, model, blogger or SL resident who enjoys creating fun photo memories- The Pose Fair is here! With a huge range of poses for singles, couples, props, as well as Bento poses from a huge number of creators. Each designer has some exclusives and this post features one of the ones from Something New – props n poses, Moon Beam – a single pose with you placed upon a narrow beam reaching for the moon towed by a quartet of doves. ( I re-tinted the beam white to go with the soft colors and lighting I chose.

I used one of the windlights I downloaded from JuicyBomb and it has a slight blue tint so it has added to the blue tones of my beautiful dress from Silvan Moon Designs. This gown is available in a range of soft pastels and includes fits for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, so be sure to look out for the Spirit Maiden gown set. My hair is the current group gift for Truth VIPs and my skin is the lovely PXL one I have been wearing almost since I put it on during the Skin Fair ( is this a new record for me?)
