Teal tales

Most of the stuff at the latest colabor88 is mesh, but I was happy to put on this non-mesh outfit from Nylon Outfitters: I could see my proper shape again! I realised after I’d taken the pictures that I don’t showcase a feature of the jacket: the pretty pattern on the back. That pattern is one reason why I chose this hairstyle (so the back wasn’t covered up). The mesh hair from Wasabi Pills has a very cute braid and a beautiful sweep of hair, that leaves one side of the scalp uncovered. They supply a “shaved head” base, but that is my one complaint as you only get it in green in this coloureds pack. In the notecard it says that this should work with all the hair in this pack, but frankly it looked too green. Fortunately this teal hairbase from Truth matched nicely.

Fairy outfit
I visited the Fairy Tales event and bought a new Glam Affair skin, a pose from Label Motion, and a couple of other things I may feature in a future post. There are 4 makeups in the skin pack, all with the pale skin tone I like, and I decided to go with one with dramatic eye liner. However, the real fairy star of these pictures is the outfit that is a hunt prize from Vera Modero in the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt. It is so floaty and pretty, and it includes the wings.

Jade, elephant
This elephant pose prop from Magnifique (99 Linden and it has 5 poses, and the elephant is just 9 or 10 prims) came just as I was lacking inspiration for how to show off the jade outfit I’d put together. I had something frothier in mind for jade, but when I rediscovered this silk top, I remembered how much I liked it. I also had to wear something more from the soon-to-go Eolande’s, these colour change jade bangles have been one of my staples.

I was really sorry to read that Eolande is moving out of SL. I have been buying and enjoying her jewellery ever since I can remember, and this butterfly necklace (gem change) is one of my favourite pieces. Too many good people have left SL, and this makes a couple of my very favourite jewellery designers (her and Miriel) who aren’t around any more.

On a more upbeat note, I also love this denim dress, so it was my first choice for the 52 weeks of colour “denim” week: I have the maxi dress in a couple of shades of denim, and also a shorter version that I wear over leggings or a skirt. Originally it was sold as part of the “To one lounge” market, but now it’s in the Oyakin mainstore. I’m using a picture I have on my wall as a background: the butterflies come out of an emitter, they aren’t part of the painting 😉

Tangerine dream
It’s halfway in the 52 weeks of colour challenge! Until the last colour I’d managed to post every colour in the right week. My laptop still isn’t well, but I can get good quality SL on my work computer and I’m now back at work (I do use SL for work, a bit), so this week is on time again, yay. I like tangerine, a lovely colour, and I really like this dress. It’s two years old now, but it still wears well, and I have it in every colour (blue, pink and black as well as this colour). Officially it’s “orange” but I think the dress has the deeper tone that I associate with tangerine. Tangerine made me think of Tangerine Dream which made me think 70s-ish, hence the bead curtain and retro chair.
I tried for ages to get the chain for the necklace to show up in the first picture, but I failed, you can see it in more detail in the second picture.

Tangerine dream
Here’s some Tangerine Dream:

A bit late with periwinkle in the 52 weeks of colour challenge – the fan on my laptop died last week and I haven’t been able to get to a computer that had good graphics for SL til now ;-((
The only good thing is that I was able to use these 60Linden Saturday slippers. The crown and slippers are in honour of the royal wedding yesterday 😉
Comme des fleurs dress: Baiastice
Twinkle Toast hair in Lilac dreams: Clawtooth
Zayba cross flowers top *sky*: Zaara
Lace Details Sweater: Fishy strawberrey
Princess Slipper L – silver/white: Eolande’s
Eyes and Fairy Tale Crown by Miriel (no longer available) and Eva skin by Tuli


Silver was a lovely choice for this time of year (in the 52 weeks of colour challenge), and I decided to mix practical and glitzy. I haven’t been grabbed by a lot of the recent Maitreya releases, but I love these boots. I realised after I had taken all the pictures that I was so keen to wear them and get posed that I forgot to fiddle with all the lace, strap and buckle change options. Still, keeping them dark means the slush doesn’t stain them. I wanted to feature Mimikri items, and actually ended up more subdued than I thought I would. The leggings are in her discount shop, and a number of other items there are good value. I also wanted to show off some Eolande’s discount items, since I have been a fan of hers ever since I entered SL, and it is good that she is continuing in her new location.

Star sequin pants in silver and Luz shrug in grey: Mimikri (the shrug also has a bow, but I left it off as I didn’t want to distract from the necklace)
Neoto sweatshirt in grey: Tres Blah
Stone Halo necklace and earrings in lapis/silver: Eolande’s
Shearling boots in Smoke: Maitreya Gold (in the right hand corner of the Maitreya Gold shop, I say that since I wasted ages fighting the lag round the main Maitreya shop trying to find them)
Raga oyster ring *paua* in silver: Zaara (only visible in the last picture)
Trinity hair in blueberry: Truth (with Amacci blue tattoo hairbase)
Skin is Eva tone 1 by Tuli (no longer available in the “new” Eva skins; I’m very depressed about how she seems to have stopped doing really pale skins) and “winter” eyes by Miriel (also no longer available).

The first picture is taken at home with an Adorkable poseball and a reindeer by Corbin Coage. The second one was taken in the Drowsy winter market. This final picture was taken at home and also gives you a good view of the boots.
