Enchantment : The Little Mermaid

For this round of Enchantment you’ll be captivated by everything that is The Little Mermaid. From the classic Disney look to a more fantasy type style or just give it your own spin and if you’re not into dress-up but you’re dying to decorate your new home (or grotto), there’s plenty of that too. This edition of Enchantment is different to previous others. Instead of running around and collecting stamps, you can visit the main sim where tons of creators are lined up with a wide variety of mermaid skins, accessories, hairstyles, home decorations, fun underwater rideables and plenty more! On top of that, aside from shopping at the main location you can also do a hunt that’ll take you to 25 of the designers’ stores for some unique and free goodies. Death Row Designs has released this gorgeous underwater grotto set-up which comes with various static poses and some solo animations as well as some couples poses to snuggle up with your Mer-lover. Mer-chandise Cove released a full set of mesh tails and shells in many different colors allowing you to go for that Ariel look, try your hand at one of her sister’s looks or just create your own mertastic combination. Being the Disney nut I am I went for the more classic look somewhat trying to re-create the scene from ‘Under the Sea’ and I think it came out rather nicely.

There’s Something Sweet

” ….. and almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
And now he’s dear and so unsure
I wonder why I didn’t see it there before”

A sort of double feature blog filled with some extremely nice goodies for this round of “Enchantment“. Now mind you, less than two weeks ago I also blogged in the theme of Beauty and the Beast for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme challenge and normally I don’t like repeating themes this soon following a previous post however, at the time I had no idea that Beauty and the Beast would be Enchantment’s theme too and the items truly are too wonderful to pass up on. Not to mention the fact that I’m an avid Disney lover, especially the animated Disney films of the late 80s and 90s. Still, to mix it up some I’ve chosen to portray a different scene from the film in the first photo. The 2nd photo is a mash up of the many different items that are available this round. And I hereby send a million thanks to the organizers of the event and the creators of these items for the stunning job they did, I’m over the moon happy with everything I found!

Tale As Old As Time

I’ve always seen these but never participated before. Usually want to but a lack of time or downright insecurity tends to get the best of me. Today however, I couldn’t resist! Strawberry Singh‘s Monday Meme! A movie character meme and after reading that the wonderfully stunning Emma Watson is going to be portraying Belle in the new live-action Beauty and The Beast.. well the choice was easy. I’ve actually spent most of the day looking for the right dress and hair and eventually decided to use a Meli Imako kit and retexture the dress myself to make it look-a-like. For the hair I actually combined 2 different Truth Hair styles (some editing and hair breaking was required!) because the Belle hair I had just didn’t quite work. There’s no new items in this post but nonetheless, I’m quite proud and I hope you’ll enjoy! ♥
