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)

28-09-19 camoflaged in flowers
I had intended to pose somewhere else in this outfit, but I couldn’t resist taking a snap in the Ariskea shop, where the floral items complemented this rich silk embroidered Ala Folie dress, that I got at the Spoonful of Sugar event. Each pack includes options for two colours (e.g. for this pack, the jacket, pants and overdress are all in both white and blue), so you can have all one colour or, as I do here, mix the two. LODE’s latest Shiny Shabby headdresses are beautiful tea roses, and I was lucky enough to get this matching pink rose headband at my first gacha shot. The hedgehog is a Jian companion, a recent FLF item. You also got an adorable curled up hedgehog to hold, and a hedgehog and leaves scene.

21-08-19 excalibur found

There is an Arthurian theme to this month’s Enchantment. There are lots of swords in stones, but I chose the pose pack from Nantra, which has 6 Excalibur-flourishing poses for Ladies of the Lake. The robes I have on are called “Merlin” but they seem as suited to lake-ladies as to wizards. I’m very fond of this newish hair from Lamb: it looks good in a lot of different poses, with the strands falling very naturally.
