Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us not to look at sunset as the end, but as a promise of a new beginning. It seemed somewhat appropriate for this post featuring several items from the June showcase at Collabor88. Tomorrow is the final day. Collabor88’s sun sets at midnight, but brings the promise of a new dawn at midnight on the 8th when the July Showcase opens with its brand new theme, Treasured Memories. I so love that Collabor88 avoids the cliche themes and color schemes that tend to surround holidays.
June’s theme was crisp and clean and that’s how I feel in this lovely set from Zaara. The coverup comes in sheer and opaque options and fits perfectly over the swimsuit. There’s a HUD to specify the suit color and whether the trim is silver or gold
I went to The Trace Too, a beautiful beach SIM, and enjoyed the sunset.
Zara’s sandals are really too beautiful to be splashing in the waves, but I could not resist. Besides, they are constructed of very hardy pixels, durable and with no-run colors.
It’s enough to make a person jump with joy, isn’t it?
The Yuno updo from Little Bones works so perfectly with the hairband from LaGyo you could be excused for thinking they were made for each other. I added big bold earrings from Kunglers because updos and big earrings go together like gin and tonic.
I also tried a new head and one from Genesis. I have not tried Genesis before because I did not want to get into buying all sorts of new appliers for hands, body and feet and in all the colors. Guess what! The Genesis hand, feet and body appliers are free and they come with one HUD for all the colors. So, no inventory explosion and no big investment in appliers for the body. Their focus is on their heads, not the peripherals. This makes me feel silly for waiting so long to try.
I liked all the options for lashes. It was all very intuitive and easy to understand. And it’s also easy to clear applied makeups.
So, when you go to The Trace Too, be aware that the water sprayer that is irrigating the garden is just a bit close to the path. You need to time yourself so you walk past while it’s circular rotation spreads the water away from you or you might get wet!
