This month’s Fameshed is an anniversary round, and most of the designers there have gifts for visitors. The problem with gifts at events is that usually, it’s one tiny crappy item that absolutely doesn’t reflect the quality of the designer. I always wonder why they even bother, if anything, it gives the brand bad publicity. Well, this time, it’s different. I was able to set up a complete outfit, only with freebies from the event. I highly recommend going, there are some gorgeous things that I’m going to go back and buy.

Head : LeLutka – Simone Bento Mesh head

I’m still playing with the glory that is the Baked on Mesh concept – the idea that our old system layers can be baked onto our beautiful mesh.
it’s fairly fascinating and wonderful honestly. Today I decided to do some swimming and to celebrate what’s possible I’m wearing an amazing new bikini from Blueberry – paired with a skin from………MOTHER GOOSE.
Mother Goose that lucky board haven, that magical land of fun and interesting skins. YES I can and will wear her skins on my mesh. And so many more. Continue reading →
The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun.
So, Blueberry has a new gorgeous piece of clothing out. It’s called Liza, and it’s supposed to be a dress. However, my toon being very modest, there’s no way she would ever wear it as one. I therefore had to find her something to wear under it. I tried all my jeans, and leggings, and nothing fit. It made me sad. Then someone suggested Izzie’s, and sure enough, I found exactly what I needed.
You know these Ingenue flats I found at Shoetopia, and was telling you about in my previous post? Turns out the “Cotton” colour can be tinted, so now I have, in addition to the fatpack, a billion possibilities to match my outfits!
I love, love love my Simone head. It was my first Bento head and so far I haven’t found one that I can shape to look like what I want, as much as this one. But I find the poses a bit mean looking, for the most part. So when I found that new HUD from Happy Dispatch, I was eager to try it. You can animate the eyes and mouth separately, and adjust the amount of animation you want, like there’s that one smile that makes me look like I’m about to eat you, but if I tone it down, it’s lovely! You should go try it.

Hello and happy Monday! I’ve done some shopping today and I figured I might as well show you! As a blogger, I am lucky to have early access to Shoetopia, and I found some gorgeous things, starting with those flats from Ingenue. They are perfection. I had to fatpack them as I couldn’t decide on a colour… They are so good everyone is getting them, it seems Gidge just posted about them too! Honestly, 12 colours for 1100l$, that’s not even 100l$ a pair, it’s a steal! Shoetopia opens today at noon SLT.
FaMESHed just opened and is, as usual, completely full, but if you manage to pop there, be sure to try the lovely hair Lamb just released there. It’s so cute, and comes with a styling HUD that allows you to hide or show the built-in hairbase and fiddle with the bangs. It’s also unrigged so if your head is weirdly shaped like mine, you can move it around and make it work!
Every week-end, Maxi Gossamer has some styles out for a discounted price, and this week she has, among other things, that very cool sun necklace. It comes in both long and short size, and you can change it from silver to gold.
I wear glasses IRL. I don’t mind them, but I wish I could change their colour like I can do in SL, to match my clothes, or my shoes. Cae has a bunch of very pretty pairs out at this month’s round of Uber, it’s just too bad she doesn’t offer a fatpack option, but I did buy 3 out of the 5 or 6 pairs available, I may go back later for the rest…
My friend Isla who owns Cheeky Pea is putting together a small fundraising event to help her sister Stephanie pay for some medical bills her husband left when he passed away unexpectedly, at only 37, a few weeks ago. I made a special recolour, the Stephanie eyes, available in the Cheeky Pea mainstore for only 100l$ for 6 colours, proceeds go to Isla. Other designers will have some lovely things out in a few, I’ll try and show you.

I get that way sometimes when someone is blathering on in a crazy way.
If ten people do the same thing you do without drama, and you are constantly being “dragged into drama” perhaps just perhaps …..it’s you.
Some things this veteran old blogger can tell you which can, in fact, help you decrease your level of drama are as follows.
No one is copying your style. No one. If someone IS copying your style please refer to the first sentence. There is a limited number of heads, bodies, and clothes in this world. If someone happens to recreate what you did – or hell just likes the way you did it and dresses up like that too – IT DOES NOT MATTER. Your style is way more than the thinks you choose to wear. If it’s not – you fail.
If you aren’t getting paid you don’t have sponsors quit rambling on about it.
You are not obligated to 23589723948 blog posts a day. If you DO that many blog posts a day don’t bitch about it. No one requires you to do that.
Creators are right to have expectations, as well do events. That doesn’t mean they own you. Flailing about regarding your “obligations” is just weird bragging. Don’t bitch and moan. Do what you’re supposed to do and move along. OR DON’T SIGN UP FOR MORE THAN YOU CAN SUPPORT.
I’m out early this morning checking out events and doing a bit of shopping. These t hings aren’t going to shop themselves, I tell you.
I pulled out an old clutch from HANDVERK and I forgot I’ve got a few awesome bags from them, they’re going to be getting more use. This is why I don’t throw things out. THIS BAG IS SO CUTE. I wonder if they are still around? I need to find out!
I’m in love with my new hair stylist exXess her blondes are amazing. If you’re a blonde girl and don’t go shopping there, run don’t walk. I took Luna this weekend and she was impressed. It’s not a new brand but for me it was one of those WOW WHEN DID THIS BRAND BECOME AMAZING moments.
