Roar for Roro – New Blueberry Release

Blueberry‘s brand new release ‘Roro‘ brings an old classic back to the grid in high quality mesh design fitted to the most popular mesh bodies as well as standard sizing. ‘Roro‘ is a cropped sweater top with a knit-like design that can be worn as just the crop sweater or combined with a longer tank top. When buying the top, the main color you purchase is for the cropped top while the bottom tank part is changeable via the HUD. Or you know, you can just fatpack it which has become a very good yet very bad habit for me. Along with this Blueberry top I’m wearing a pair of fringed boots, a new release from !Rebel Hope at FaMESHed this month and my new do is ‘Nataline‘, another new release at FaMESHed this time by Elikatira.

Pound Me The Witch Drums – Happy Halloween!

“Pound me the witch drums
The witch drums
Better pray for hell, not hallelujah”

I have a thing for witches and witchcraft, always had and probably always will and I don’t just mean the stereotypical witch but the entire history and lore dating far back to Salem and even before then. I’ve always found it an interesting subject and though the show isn’t wholly accurate, it’s what drew me to the TV show ‘Salem’ recently which is well worth watching. Even better is the soundtrack “Cupid Carries a Gun” by Marilyn Manson which is what my post and title is inspired by.

Now I know we’ve still got a day before it’s officially Halloween but since I’ve got virtual celebration plans, I’m posting a day early! For my look, I got all kinds of goodies from all over the grid and tons of events and fairs. My face alone comes from about 3 different places which sounds kind of odd but it’s true! Designers all over the place have made so many wonderful things this past month leading up to Halloween and I’ve been relishing in all of it slowly putting this look together. It’s worth noting that the scarred face applier I’m wearing is a special edition from DeeTaleZ for the Trick or Treat event at AMD & Shopping District and it will only be available until November 1st so if you like it, you should hurry! IKON still has a 30% off sale going today and tomorrow on specific ‘fantasy’ eyes so that’s another thing worth checking out before time runs out.

Shiny or Shabby?

Do you feel shabby or shiny? Don’t worry if you can’t choose because the Shiny Shabby event that opens today offers you the best of both worlds. I’ve already spoiled myself with many items from all my favorite stores but let’s start off with MINA and Glam Affair for today’s post. I think it’s been 2 of 3 years since I’ve first discovered MINA at the annual Hair Fair and at first what drew me in most were the Dutch names given to her hairstyles. I’m Dutch myself and I guess anything that’s Dutch immediately stands out to me especially in a world as diverse as Second Life. Ever since, I’ve kept an eye on MINA hair and have grown to truly love not just the style of her hair but the texturing especially. High quality hair textures which nowadays always come with a materials ready version of the hair too giving it that extra shine and definition. For the Shiny Shabby event, MINA’s released a new hairstyle named Kaya, a simple and messy yet stylish updo with some lose strands coming down her face and sticking out of the bun. The type of hairdo that would match a posh blouse as well as that old raggedy favorite sweater that you should be throwing out but can’t. For the blog, I’ve paired Kaya up with a simple tank top and cardigan and I’ll probably continue wearing this hairstyle for quite a few days since it’s become an instant new favorite. Now as far as Glam Affair goes, I won’t bore you again with how much I love their skins but instead we’ll get straight to the good news. For Shiny Shabby, Glam Affair has released another series of ‘Alice’ skins this time accompanied by 12 appliers for the PXL Sweet Lips. Sweet Lips is the new mesh mouth by PXL Creations, they only have 1 style at the moment but it does come with teeth and lip piercing options so it’s definitely worth checking out. Matching the mouth to your face and skin with Glam Affairs new appliers is a breeze. I think for the first time in mesh mouth history I haven’t stood there messing with the size and the shape of my face for over an hour until I got it on right. With that said, let’s move on to ‘the look’!

Uptown Girl

Not a whole lot of new new new in this post but a whole lot of Maitreya love since it is one of my favorite stores and when I woke up this morning and put my daily outfit together I was just so pleased I decided to blog it! The inspiration actually comes from Gilmore Girls which I’ve been rewatching on Netflix and as I was sipping my morning coffee, Lorelai Gilmore walked in wearing this really cute wrap dress. I thought for a moment and realized I had a similar dress in SL and thus, today’s look was born! I’ve also taken a step out of my comfort zone by trying on a skin that’s NOT from my usual brand and I have to say, I actually quite love this DeeTaleZ skin! The door is new though! Well, it’s the front door of Roost’s latest release the East Ives home. Totally gorgeous and I might blog some more parts of the house in the future once I get it decorated to my desire. Anywayys, the look!
