A beautiful gown from Belle Epoque was a cheap deal last weekend and I choose this cyclamen colour. As you can see from the photo below the gown also looks wonderful when you sit down and is gorgeous for a romantic evening or floating round as a fairy creature. I selected a glamorous recent hair style from Truth to go with it, and a charming old hair wreath from LODE.

02-07-20 ayashi hair

I love the new Mariko set by Ayashi at Japonica. There is (in separate packs) the hair with two messy bunches, accessories (metal flower petals round each bunch, ribbons, and hairpins, each with a separate colour HUD), a fan (with six different colour options, and inbuilt pose) and a forehead tattoo. Perfect for summer wanderings through cool, shaded gardens.

26-06-20 flf bonbon

A really cute and useful 50 Linden Friday item from BonBon today – a set of 3 bangs which you can combine with other hair. There are 3 large colour HUDSs, plus the option to tint the bangs yourself, and the bangs are not rigged, so you can resize to fit your head. I immediately wore one of the bangs with the Exile hair I had on at the time, and I think they work really well. The original style has the hair all pulled away to form the pony tail, and this softens it a little, and also keeps the flyaway look. I used a shade from the “colours” HUD (there is also a naturals and an ombre).

12-06-20 watermelon

This post is mostly to show off the Lydia platform shoes I just got at Anthem, with chunky soles and big ribbons tied at the ankle. I’m wearing them with a pretty watermelon themed yukata that I bought last summer. I have been decorating a new Trompe Loeil house (Zaliki Tropical Cottage) and in front of me is a fountain I picked up at Fantasy Fair (*United Inshan* Indian Fountain with Faucet) with a resized Jiwa Tenang Beach Pot Plant Hibiscus from The Looking Glass perched on top.

30-01-20 shredderThe shredder I’m holding is imitating the Banksie artwork that was shredded immediately after it was sold – you can put in your own texture, and I put in a photo of myself holding the shredder.
The outfit is a happy combination of the versatile leggings by Neve and a gacha item by cute store Nini Planet. To check out which event the dress was from (turns out, Flora) I visited the Nini Planet shop in ChuChu, which is a really cute little Japanese shopping area. The second picture was taken there, in the ChaCha shop.

05-01-20 new year ahiru back view

With the new year come fresh winter and New Year kimono. This kimono with its warm outer coat was one of those on sale at the latest round of Japonica. I was also lucky in getting a hair ribbon in just the right colour from one of the Japonica gachas and I pulled some Zouri by the same designer (Exia) from my inventory. The first photo was taken in the Ahiru village, which is magical under the snow. In the second photo you can see the front view of the outfit – I’m posing with a lot of New Year items, including an offering and rats (it’s the Year of the rat) by Schadenfreude at Japonica and arrows, some collected from a couple of shrines and some given as group gifts by [RH]

11-12-19 winter at the arcade

I went shopping at the Arcade in an outfit mostly from the collabor88 event. The item from December’s Collabor88 is the sweater: there are cosy sweaters on offer from various designers. For me the advantage was that this one has an alpha (I have kept with the classic avatar body, seeing as how I rarely show much of it anyway!).
Hair and boots are from the previous collabor88, and I’m pretty sure that the earrings and skirt were first introduced at collabor88 as well, but some while ago. I still think they look great, though: good design doesn’t date!

Cheerful colours seem right to contrast with winter snow or winter gloom. This outfit includes two past Fifty Linden Friday bargains (the boots and the sweater), some toning items I found in my inventory (winter hat hair and maxi skirt) together with the muff which was picked up at a recent event. The muff was white fur, but I was able to tint it (though looking at the photo, I could have matched it better!). The muff comes in a pack with a little fur stole (not shown).

30-10-19 Halloween

Although I don’t like things to be too gruesome, I enjoy dressing up for Halloween and going round all the wonderful SL events collecting pumpkins, gravestones etc. This gown from Senzafine is great because it can be the basis of a witch/vampire outfit, but at other times of the year will just be a beautifully textured formal dress. I was going to wear the Handrew hair from Exile (with a dismembered hand holding up your hair) but I liked this candelabra hair from Analog Dog even more. As usual G. Field has a whole new Halloween outfit (dress, boots, stockings, hat, face paint) available for  group members, but I just wore the face paint. You can also get the past group gifts from the G. Field mainstore (the shoes/boots alone are worth the trip)
