Logo is celebrating their 15th anniversary of creating in Second Life, and for the occasion they have released two new heads, one female, one male, available for free at the Logo Anniversary event. For the occasion, a bunch of talented creators have released add ons for the heads. The skins, make-ups and other customisation options offered at the event are all surprisingly cheap.
I had planned to talk to you about this week’s finds at Fifty Linden Fridays but, as you can see, it is now Saturday and I guess most things aren’t available anymore. Booh me. Anyway, Dead Doll’s cute dress and Ingenue booties are absolutely lovely and compliment each other perfectly.
I have to say, I’m really liking this head so far. I’m not completely done tweaking the mouth and nose to have it look like “me”, but I’m getting there.

I would like to invite you to a fiendish event that opens today. You will be able to find macabre items, and to search for the lost keys in a hunt for only the truly insane!
When you arrive at Hallow Manor, you enter the gates to find a winding alley of goods that have been created with the macabre and frightful in mind. Once you have purchased everything your little black heart desires, you will enter the grounds of Hallow Manor’s cemetery, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the old estate.
You will have an opportunity to purchase a HUD in order to search for the lost keys to unlock the hidden prize room, or, if you so wish, purchase a master key HUD, to bi-pass the hunt.
My personal favourites at the event so far are the gorgeous boots from Eclectica. They come in many floral tones and both the mesh and textures are exquisitely made. They’re also very volatile as they are texture change and you can modify different parts separately.
You may also want to hunt for the Macabre Girl Set from Lovelysweet, the tattoo layers are insanely cute, in a macabre, creepy way.

Oh hi! Today I didn’t go to work because of what I thought was a sciatica. Turns out it’s a tendonitis in my buttock. Yes, you may laugh, and no, I don’t know how I did that. Anyway, since I had a little time at home on my own, I managed to put together an outfit and take a few pictures.
I went to Uber and grabbed a few of the gifts that each store has, as it’s a birthday round. These lovely glasses were one of them. So were the adorable fairy lights in the picture below. I also grabbed (not a gift but worth it) another set of gorgeous rings from Yummy, and the matching nails from Nylon Outfitters.

One would think, with two boys under 5 at home, my life would be filled with toy cars and firetrucks… well, actually, it is. But my oldest is also very much into princesses at the moment. Very. Much. His imaginary friends are called Anna and Elsa. So when he walked by my computer earlier this morning, he went “waaaaaaaaah! Mummy!! You’re a PRINCESS!! So pretty!”
Also, I finally gave in and got myself one of the new Evolution heads at LeLutka. Actually that happened a while ago but it took me weeks to make it look like “me”. Now, I’m quite pleased, because I can wear some of my old system skins. Not today though, today, I’m wearing one of the latest Lara Hurley, and I have to say I love it.

I grabbed this cute dress at the Fashionably Dead booth at Collabor88, and then I had to dig in my inventory to find pretty things to match. And boy did I find things! That skin, for instance, si from Clef de Peau, and believe it or not, I’d never worn it before. It was buried deep in a folder of “things to sort and maybe blog”, and I’m glad I found it. It’s very pretty and the freckles are a lovely option.
But let’s get back to that dress for a minute. It comes in a gazillion colours, but I was feeling in the mood for green. The HUD offers a lot of corset options, plain and embroidered, and the level of detail is stunning.
Oh hi again! I told you I got both the short and the long version of the cute jumpsuit from Etiquette, didn’t I? Well here’s the long one. I chose the green one because I figured, for a long one, a lighter colour would be prettier. Then came the hard part, accessorising. And for that I went into digging mode in the organised chaos that is my inventory. I apologise in advance if some of the things I wear are old and possibly discontinued.
I’ve been buying hair from Magika since 2007 I think, back then it was already way better than what most other (now long gone) hair makers would do. I’m always amazed at how, with every new release, Sabina Gully keeps improving and renewing her style. This cute one is called Prudence and comes with a cat and a devil horn headband, but I wanted something more elegant for this picture so I dug up this starry headband.

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!
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 :

As Gidge told you earlier, Hair Fair is here!! If you needed an extra reason to go, here are a few :
It’s for a good cause : every purchase has a 15 to 40% donation to Wigs For Kids.
The sims are really easy to navigate : start at landing point, follow the path and you will walk by every store.
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.
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 :

I’ve been wearing that outfit for a while now, and just couldn’t find the time to blog it, but finally here it is! I’m absolutely in love with everything there : the gorgeous rings from Kunglers, the lovely necklace from Maxi Gossamer, the cute Tram hair, the adorable flats from Phedora… Definitely saving that whole outfit to wear again!
