New kimono

There are some beautiful kimono and yukata being designed in mesh, and this one is new from Aso! at the Chapter Four event. The pattern is delicate and lovely, in deep indigo and parchment. I photographed it on my own land (where there is a corner of perpetual cherry blossom) and in Gallery Sayopiyo on the Kick sim. This exhibit (which has parts of the “picture” flicking on and off) reminded me of painting on black velvet.

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.

Anarkali Kameez dress

Although Halloween is well past, I am still drawn to warm autumnal colours. The Anarkali Kameez dress was bought at the Cinema event, and the new boots (by Schadenfreude from the latest Collabor88) seemed to go particularly well (you can have the sides, tongue and toe parts plain or patterned, using a HUD). I’m holding Jennifer, my newest kittycat. I couldn’t decide which hair I liked best with this outfit, so there are pictures of both.

Working out

I wanted a non-mesh outfit for a meeting where I was speaking (you don’t want to think that part of the audience just sees disembodied hands and head waving around) and so I pulled out some old favourites, and added a nice new lace belt and dangly necklace from League (where the key piece of the outfit came from, too i.e. the pretty cardigan). I tried out some exercise machines, but it was soon all too much for me and I collapsed in a heap in the locker rooms. I must say, I think these Zaara jeans are still more attractive than most of the mesh jeans you see around.

I have been going to Caverna Obscura for fairytale dresses for a few years. The new items have been mesh, and so far a bit to skimpy for me, but I love the wispy colouring and floral decorations on this one. It doesn’t come with the tights, by the way. I made them myself by taking a closeup picture of the dress and uploading to my inventory for 10 Linden, creating a new pair of socks, and then editing the socks to apply the texture. The location was the Vespertine “Pure Dreams” sim.

MiuMin kimono
I only found out about the recent Kimono Festival on the last day (August 1st) but I was glad I had caught it, since there were some lovely kimono and accessories. I bought several kimono (and nabbed some freebies) but here I am again in an outfit by my favourite kimono designer, MiuMin. It includes the geta (shoes), obi, hair flower ornament and also a small bag that I haven’t shown. The material is beautifully filmy and I love the pattern.
After I’d taken the first pictures I bought a couple more hair ornaments and changed my hairstyle to show them off better: this Colette style from Exile works well with hair sticks and combs.

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.

In Mimikri at theStar festival

I have always been a fan of Mimikri, and I think this mesh dress, Linette, fits very nicely. The top is not mesh, so I don’t have to change my shape, and there are two separate parts to the flouncy skirt which means it works quite well when you are sitting down. The pictures were taken in the teahouse at the Star Festival 111, 169, 1104

Spring outfit

I love this delicate lacey top from Barerose; it’s one of their new Mesh items and as usual you get excellent value with three pastel colours in the pack. It comes with lace-edged leggings, but I paired it with a favourite maxi dress from G. Field and added some more romantic G.Field accessrories, the gloves and hair rose and some adorable flats from UFO (at the latest collabor88); see the picture below. This fluffy updo from Truth seemed to fit the mood perfectly and the jewellery is from the “70% off” wall at Donna Flora.
