17-01-17-formal-kimono-in-spring

It may not actually be spring yet in my physical world, but I can enjoy the chime of fur-in amongst spring blossom in Second Life. There were two major events which featured kimono (Kimono-ichi and Japonica), both of which I am too late to blog, but Sakka’s Studio has a big main store and this elegant formal kimono is probably there by now. It includes tabi and zori (Japanese shoes and socks). I added a quirky pair of glasses from Naminoke.

15-12-16 angel dress head shot.jpgThis Christmas costume started with the wings (there is a pack that includes these multiple wings, a single pair of wings, and various feathery bits too) which you have just a couple of days to get at the Creators’ Collection Box. I liked them so much I got them in 3 colours. Then I saw the dress, and knew it was the one for me: I’m a very on trend angel who likes to look a bit edgy. The other must-haves were the beautifully delicate hair ornaments which were on sale at the Liaison Collaborative. Then I was on a quest for hair that was light and flowing, but wasn’t going to interfere with my wings, and this latest design from Magika fitted very well.

06-12-16-advent-day-6The advent gifts continue to flood in. I’m wearing the day 6 advent gift from !gO! (another recolour of the Blanka dress) and Kaerri‘s Kittycats gift, a 9 land impact working clock (with a kitten playing by the fireside).  I’m also wearing boots by Deadwool and Truth‘s Sugar hair. This is my unboxing video for December 6 advent gifts from Sway’s, !gO! and Kittycats. gO is at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugar%20Plum/225/91/26 , Swayland at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SwayLand/126/118/27 and Kittycats at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/caLLiefornia/159/212/1116

Days 5 (Alina jacket and top – top picture) and 4 (Amelka sweater, picture sitting on bed) of the !gO! advent calendar: I love their stuff so I’m really appreciating the gifts. You have to join the group (50L) and there’s boy and girl gifts (you can take both) only available on the day. I have been vlogging them here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmbo9ZOLfP6OgNC81zAcESg

This is really a bit mean since what I’m wearing is the Day 1 advent gift from !gO! (the Xmas recolour of their new Blanka maxi dress) and unfortunately you can only grab the current day’s gift. However, it shows you what nice things you can get. You need to join the !gO! group, if you aren’t a member already, which costs 50 Linden. There are presents for either men or women. Go to http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sugar%20Plum/225/91/26. I’m also wearing the Rudraksh necklace from the “Goa” gacha by Zaara, a paper crown (texture change) from Sway’s and Monso‘s Yoni hair.

A last minute Halloween look. I like this hat/hair from Besom – with this gown it looks witchy, but with jeans and a sweater it will look more arty and casual. As usual, the Senzafine gown is beautifully made. You can’t see the shoes unless I sit down; the spiders on the toes are beautiful, but look ready to scuttle up and bite you.

“Ashera” Gown: Senzafine
Onora 10 eyeshadow: Zibska
Equals tattoo – White: [White~Widow]
New Girl hair (includes hat): *Besom
Spider hair stick: Earthstones
Spider Choker -purple- G Field (very old group gift)
Elvira Night shoes: :::ChicChica:::
Butterfly ring: Keke

06-10-16-uneventful-back

There is a challenge from Peepsideshow to showcase items that weren’t bought at events (here). This is a new dress and sweater combination from !gO!, which I think has just been launched in the mainstore (where I bought it). The sweater has a great design at the back, so I’ve shown a back view first. Sweater and dress are bought separately, and there is also a neckscarf. On my feet are boots from Deadwool. I bought my first pair of these (in grey) at an event, but these brown ones are from the mainstore, where the full colour range is available. You can wear them with or without the thick woolly socks.

I’ve been a bit naughtier with the accessories. The necklace is ok, as it is only available on the Marketplace, as sadly Mustang Trading Post closed its inworld store. However, the hair is still out at the Crossroads (though I bought it in the last round). I love this hair. I did get the headband at – I think it was Midnight Madness. However the colour-change HUD was instore.

Ulrich boots (with socks): [Deadwool]
Mirela dress and Mirela sweater: !gO!
