14/10/2018 – Bats in the Kawaii

Have you ever noticed how some things in your wardrobe, that you bought at totally different times, in different stores, suddenly look like they were always meant to be worn together? Well that’s what I had happen to me yesterday when I tried on that adorable dress from Lomomo at the Seasons Story. I saw it and BAM! I knew my Batty hair (latest VIP style from Truth – seriously if you still haven’t joined, what are you waiting for?) and the Straight Jacket shoes from Adam&Eve (@ The Secret Affair until nov 5th) would be the perfect match!

13/10/2018 – The Seasons Story

The Seasons Story had opened its doors on the 10th, and since it’s an anniversary round, most designers have little gifts, and all of them offer discounted items in their booth. I’ve found a lot of cute things.

07/10/2018 – All the leaves are brown…

…and I’ve decided to wear brown too.

Every first Sunday of the month, a bunch of designers have some cool stuff out for a discounted price of 69l$. Find out everything you want to know about SL Syndicate Sundays here.
This round I’ve picked the cute cottage house from Funky Junk, pumpkins from QE Home and gorgeous nails from Dark Passions.

I love putting together outfits with bits and pieces in my inventory, digging up oldies but goodies, going shopping for the perfect piece to compliment the rest. Like those rings from Yummy that add a little something to my hands, making my nails pop. Or that cute little Blueberry skirt from an old Luxe Box combined with a fairly recent Tres Blah jacket and that elephand necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai…

Note To Moth

I felt adventurous on Saturday and decided to do a bit of wandering about. I found a city RP sim that was a bit dystopian (found in search using FALL). It was a great place to shoot and no one was around for me to disturb their RP so -PERFECT. Continue reading

Hair Fair Designer Cruella Pennell of Adoness

What’s your favorite thing about Hair Fair?

The fact that I am able to help children with my creativity.

What drew you to creating hair, arguably one of the most difficult challenges for creators?

I always had a fascination for different, edgy hairstyles in real life so I decided to make those in SL. It was a challenge to learn the process but in the end, it was worth it. Now I get to share my taste with others and get to see how others wear my hair.

Adoness Brand

Adoness

How would you describe your brand’s aesthetic or niche?

Adoness niche is punk/alternative/rock hair, mostly with shaved sides. The brand aesthetic – A dark fantasy world with endless starry nights. Peace, serenity, and cuteness are how you could describe my vision of the brand.

What comic/cartoon character would shop at your store? Veronica, Betty, Olive Oyl, Miss Piggy, Storm?

Kermit the Frog, I’m sure.

What inspired the styles you created for Hair Fair?

I picked up inspiration from requests I receive from my customers. My friend requested straight fringe styles. Beanie hairstyle which was released at Hair Fair was named after her.

Do you have a funny hair story to share?

One happened recently. It was a request from my customer. It was dark but I find it incredibly funny, “Some of my friends and I have been hunting down a hair we saw on Marketplace and it led me to you.  Will the Ares hair be put up for sale?   We are willing to give up Lindens,  our first born and do sacrificial slaughters. Other forms of payment, death and mutilation will be considered.”

Which hair from your collection is closest to your real life hair?

Odin

 The Odin hairstyle was created according to my own hair at the time.

Feels Like Fall

I have to confess I’m an addict for fall. While the heat in the RL stays in the 90s my SL turns into a pumpkin colored wonderland at the first hint of autumn. The SALEM event kicked off and that has to mean it’s fall doesn’t it? I’m positive it means that. I’m sporting new lips and eye BLACK MAGIC makeup from ALASKA METRO that you can pick up at SALEM.

I’m doing a bit of urban shopping today in a sharp suit from Baiastice and my favorite HAT HAIR from Hair Fair this year. Every year I declare a BEST HAT HAIR at Hair Fair and honestly – THIS IS IT FOR ME. SO CUTE. Perfect for the breezy city streets while I look for the next bargain! Continue reading

Oh hai! Apparently there’s a trend on Flickr that consists of taking pictures sideways, or with an horizontal avatar. From what I understand the goal is to get one’s picture picked as group cover, then one snapshots said cover and posts it again on their Flickr. I find that last part highly ridiculous, but just like bloggers referring to designers as “sponsors”, I guess that’s how the world goes nowadays and you just have to go with the flow. I do miss simpler times, when one blogged just what they liked, when they liked it, and once in a while would get blogger copies and would be over the moon with them… oh well, I’ll just keep my old fart’s habits and hope people enjoy my ramblings. But just for today, just for the fun of it, here’s a horizontal picture :

23/09/2018 – Good Hair Day

As Gidge told you earlier, Hair Fair is here!! If you needed an extra reason to go, here are a few :

  1. It’s for a good cause : every purchase has a 15 to 40% donation to Wigs For Kids.
  2. The sims are really easy to navigate : start at landing point, follow the path and you will walk by every store.
  3. Everything has been made so that it’s not lag fest : minimalist decor and scripts. I do however recommend you wear a full alpha and nothing else, and show friends only, to help keep everyone’s experience nice and smooth.
  4. If you’re a hair whore like me, you’ll have your fix of gorgeous hair!

What? Still not convinced? Take a look at just a few of the gorgeous hair that can be found there :
