Back to the business of blogging

It’s nice to have a real avatar again, instead of a floating particle ghost. Here’s some of the backlog of finds that I wanted to share with you! This may well be one of the prettiest hunt prizes I’ve ever seen – the Seldom Blue Evangeline Golden Gown from the Iconically Sexy Summer Hunt. The Tuli Audrey skin is also from the same hunt. The hair is Truth Midori Hair in Blood, and the pose is by Glitterati.

Yes, Horatia’s hands are hidden in the skirt, but with a skirt this wide, it was unavoidable unless I used a pose that either spread the arms out wide, above, or held somewhere in the chest area! IRL, if one was wearing this dress, any time the hands were below the waist, they’d likely be hidden in the skirt.

You’ll be seeing more backgrounds like this, because I was looking for some dark Victorian-themed houses and skyboxes as well as furniture  (not necessarily easy to find; perhaps I will do a sampling over at 117prims in the near future). This skybox is called  The Victorian Room, from Noesis, and it’s available on XStreetSL for only $75L. It’s 31 prims, and the walls have a menu to switch between 6 different wallpaper textures.

ABomb featured this purple lace over black fabric dress in this week’s Humpday Madness.  The detail on this outfit is really beautiful, and it even flowed nicely as it moved.  Also featured is alaMood Dream Ice Jewelry from last weekend’s Lazy Sunday,  A Netherworld’s MoonShadow Skins – Gigli Pale /Purple from Woeful Wednesday,  DbT Valerie Black Satin Boudoir Shoes, and Clawtooth Lovely Liz Hair in Brown. Pose: NSA.

I’ve featured MangoMango‘s skins quite a bit in my blogs. While the Vamp line is  extremely pale, and therefore it’s difficult to do a lot of shading in the texture, I’ve always liked the illustrative quality of these skins.  Three of the newest Vamp Skins were on sale earlier this week for $69L each…featured here is the Jelly Vamp Skin. The hair is another one available at Truth‘s sale –  Vera in Cranberry. The lovely dress and jewelry is PP Petal Diamonds Dress (from Woeful Wednesday this week). The boots are Malfean Visions Admiral’s Stilettos. Pose by Shopaholics Anonymous.

This week goodies: low Linden$ clothing, skin, hair

Wow, between the Cupcakes sim Bake Sale, the Zombie Popcorn Carnival, and Mango Mango’s $50L and $69L  midweek specials, I have so many new skins this week that I doubt I’ll even come close to blogging them all.

L’Abel Geovana Black Floral Dress (not sure if the sale is still on)
Junwave Ayano Dark Brown Hair (sale)
Cupcakes Darling Moon Retro Skin (from the Bake Sale earlier this week)

Isn’t this retro floral sundress beautiful? There were about 4 or 5 different floral prints available in this dress at the Cupcakes sim Bake Sale on Monday, for only $50L.  Sure hope they continue the sales every Monday!

Cupcakes Spring Corset Dress in Floral Showers (from the Bake Sale earlier this week)
Duh Spring Flats in Rose (from the Strawberry Festival)
FG Bright Petite Flower Necklace (from XStreetSL.com)
Mango Mango Vamp Spring Skin with Freckles ($50L, not sure for how long)
Junwave Minami Apricot Brown Hair (sale )

Friday from fri.day

One of my favorite items currently at fri.day is this sweet summer dress. Yes, it’s a little on the young-ish  side for me, and the style does kind of make us more curvy types look like a toadstool, but I still love it. I’d never get to wear something like this IRL, so I might as well enjoy it in SL! The dress is currently included in the 50% off sale, and is available in several other color combinations.

fri.day Spring Bloom Dress in Sea (hurry to their sale before it’s over)
Purple Moon Satine Aquamarine Pump (from inventory)
fri.day Anna hair in Passionate Red
Mango Mango Daddy-O Pale Freckles Skin (from this weeks Humpday Madness)
Pose from P4P

In a dark mood

For some reason, I’m already to the point of ditching the sweet pastels. Maybe it’s the weather here in my real life location, which is pretty gloomy. Maybe it’s just wanting something different after a few weeks of indulging in spring. Maybe it’s simply my mood, which Second Life hasn’t helped in the last few days. I’ve teleported back to my Linden Home in order to sort and model new purchases, but everything has been stuck on major lag. That Leezu 10,000 Member Group Gift so many bloggers are gushing over? I sure would like to see it on my avatar…but after letting things sit for an hour, it was still a bunch of big grey blobs. Logged out, logged back in again, same thing. However, that does give me a chance to catch up with other outfits here on the blog.

Above: this was RFye’s entry for HumpDay this week. It’s called a Ringmaster Outfit but personally, I think it looks a lot like a riding habit. A goth riding habit, I guess. The texture in this outfit is fantastic! I paired it with the Xaida Cecilie B Black Skin (on special now for $10L) and the Shag Nymph Hair Dark Copper (Project Themeory last week). I want to thank SL Chic Critique for blogging about the skins.

Above: This bright red satin dress from Paris Metro is a $1L promotion, with the detail one would typically find in a much more expensive dress. The hat and gloves are included. The hair is Pocket Mirrors Carla Wavy Strawberry (already featured, I think it was $50L Friday last week). And the skin is another one of Xaida’s $10L promotions, Filippa Clear Pure.

The outfit below might be the only one I got to rez last night, and in order to do that, I had to teleport to another sim. But it’s nice that I get to feature a dress that was just delivered Thursday.

Above: A Piece of Candy group gift Zuma Blue Baby Doll (FYI: A Piece of Candy has been sending out frequent group gifts, something to strongly consider if you like their clothing styles). Posh Naive Sunflower Hair with Hat (Thirsty Thursday promotion). I CE COCO Doudi Skin.
