Holly Jolly Christmas

 

I really have to get this blog written because the muse struck for the next one. I really want to start taking pics for it but I also know me, if I do I will get them mixed up and forget to complete this one or credit it wrong. I’m really excited to announce that I am a blogger for The Plastik, I applied never thinking I would get it and I did! My very first demon avatar I made, oh so many years ago, had a Plastik skin but I hadn’t purchased anything nor blogged it in quite some time, so I am truly honored to be given this chance. Oh and I’ve changed how my featured pic looks, I’ll decide in time if that’s how I want to keep it but I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

When I first got this gacha set from The Plastik I immediately thought “office Christmas party” and due to that, I set about creating a scene that would reflect that. I had the treats from The Plastik, but what could I use to display them all? I had already been to The Arcade and it dawned on me I had this amazing set from Llorisen. This set includes 12 commons and one rare, which I desperately tried to get and was unsuccessful, oh well. It is wonderfully made and completely my party set so well. Only one thing was missing and so I set out to get my missing piece.

Half Deer is at Collabor88 this month with 5 Christmas decor sets, each set is exactly the same except for the colors. I chose the black Christmas tree and corresponding decor, doesn’t it look amazing? This set also includes a wreath (not pictured).

I am only just scratching the surface with this display of sweet treats from The Plastik. This gacha includes 26 commons and 4 rares, and 2 secret rare. Most of the items are attachable and come with a bento pose included in the item, like the cupcake I’m holding in the above picture. The detail on these items is just amazing, I swear I could eat them.

I knew how I wanted the scene to look so my next task was picking an outfit. I scoured through the designer’s offering from my blogging group and found this stunning jumpsuit. Available in 10 individual colors or a fatpack that includes 17 colors, this outfit is sure to make you stand out. I just love Lybra and the creations that Natzuka comes up with. This is fit for Maitreya only.

The pose has been manipulated so much it does not reflect the original and I will not be offering credits on it.

I adore this hair and really wish I had been able to get a shot of it from the back as well. I am going to include a link to the ad photo so you can see it. This hair is from Phoenix and is available right now at Hairology. It comes with a style HUD that includes a tight, French braid style hair with an adorable bun on top, there is an optional bow made out of hair and two bang options. This hair is perfection.

7 Deadly Skins is doing it’s Christmas Advent right now, you can head on over to the store, wear your group tag and get some amazing skins all through the month of December. Not a member? The joining fee is 1000L during this event. Today I am sharing day 11 with you. This skin box comes with 3 skins in it! That’s right not one but 3. I chose the Harlyn skin in sand. There is a v1 and v2, version one has beauty spots and version two is plain. I used the 7 Deadly Skins mesh body applier so I could also have beauty marks on my body skin. This set does not come with an Omega body applier but does include appliers for Tango, Phatazz, & Slink hands and feet. I chose to wear it on my brand new LAQ Scarlet MoCap mesh head. To be perfectly honest, I have fallen in love with this head.

The eyes and eyeshadow are both from the extremely talented Mesange. The eyes are currently available at We <3 Roleplay and are only available individually as We <3 RP does not allow for fatpacks. 15 colors to choose from, each eye is unisex and comes with 4 size irises, mesh eyes, standard eyes and a HUD for Omega compatibility. The eyeshadow is at Cosmetic Fair and in available in 4 packs of 4 colors each. They are Omega or Catwa compatible only.

Another new designer that took a chance on me is Ysoral, to be frank, I never thought I’d get accepted but when I got the notice I think I squealed. The jewelry from Ysoral is just stunning like this brand new watch. This watch comes with a HUD that includes 15 metal colors, 15 gems, SL and RL time options, glow and resize. It is just absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t wait to share it.

Winter Wonderland

 

I swore I was going to get this blog written today and I will. Sometimes I see items from designers and immediately the wheels start turning. Ideas float in my head aching to be brought to fruition. With this set of pictures today I had help from my good friend Adalynne Romano if you haven’t seen her blog before you really should check it out. She’s what I want to be when I grow up. Her decor blogging is just phenomenal. So when I was setting the scene for this post I asked for her help and what you see is the final product.

This scene was created by taking several amazing items from decor creators all over the grid. The trees, hill, and grass are all from the amazing The Little Branch. This funky tree, snow hill, and grass are all part of the brand new set from FaMESHed. This set also includes 2 other grass types, another hill, and a frozen deer. The big tree is animated and just looks absolutely gorgeous inworld.

The cute animals are from Half Deer and United InshCon. The Deer family comes with all three animals and are gacha, and the foxes are part of an old gacha that I was lucky enough to find on the MP. They all completed my scene so fantastically. The other trees pictured are also from The Little Branch available inworld and on the MP.

The outfit is several pieces that came together to create a great winter look. MOoH! has this adorable puffer coat with attached shirt available at The Frozen Fair. This jacket comes with a HUD that includes 6 colors, the shirt is black and is not color change. This jacket is fit for all three Belleza bodies, Ebody, Maitreya, both Slink bodies, Ocacin, TMP, and both Tonic bodies, as well as standard fitmesh sizes. I paired it with some older leggings from Blueberry and voila my look was created.

I completed my look with a brand new hair from Limerence and super cute boot from Empire. Both are available right now at Winter Trend. The hair comes with a hat that you can wear with the hair or separately or not at all. This is my first experience with Limerence and I’m impressed, I’ll be checking more of these hairs out in the future. The boots are made for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink bodies. They come with a full-color change HUD including 20 colors for the boots and straps and 22 colors for the socks as well as 20 colors for the sole and 3 metal colors. I just love Empire.

Part of my thought involved this pose. When I had thoughts swirling around my brain on how to make this picture come to life this pose was foremost in my thoughts. This is a couple pose and is bento, I feel bad asking people to collaborate with me and I didn’t feel like buying stuff for my alts since I am never on them anyway why would I want to spend more money on them? This pose is still fabulous for one person and you can grab it inworld and on the MP.

I really wish I had been able to get to blogging this head this weekend while it was still on sale, however real life comes first and taking care of my kids is the utmost importance to me. LAQ released Scarlet at a special price for this past weekend only, it is now full price of 5000L. It comes with the motion capture head, HUD, shape, three eye colors, 11 gestures, 3 voice animations, and an eyebrow shape.

It is absolutely adorable right out of the box, I didn’t modify the face at all for this post and will play with my shape later on. I had tried LAQ when bento first came out and I couldn’t bring myself to spend the Lindens wanted for the mesh heads. Now I am collecting quite a few heads so hearing that this head was on sale I knew I had to try it and review it. Omega is already built into this head, no need for additional HUDs either, so you can wear your favorite skins. I do wish there were more options for animations but overall I am very happy with this head.

The Makeover Room is still going on until December 26 and trust me you do not want to miss out on the amazing creations from our designers. Kosmetik is there with a brand new set of eyes and Dulce Secrets will make your lips shine.

This necklace from Vinyl is super cute and a new play on bestie necklaces, again I don’t like asking people to help me, I feel it’s an imposition. I really need to get over that… Anywho, this necklace is available at Pay It Forward and each pack comes with two necklaces in each pack. The necklaces and HUDs are no copy and transferable to give one to your best friend. but the pinecone and tag is such a cute idea. I don’t know how she comes up with these.

A New York Christmas

Sometimes my pictures go through many metamorphoses, sometimes the first shot is perfect. Today was one of those that I edited and re-edited, took multiple shots, and finally came up with a photo array that I could be proud of. I carefully chose each item I wanted to feature today and I wanted pictures that did them justice. I hope you agree that the end result was worth the effort.

Yes, this is the third time I am sharing this tree from Swallow, but look how pretty it is. Today I chose the red and gold version to share. This tree comes in four colors in two prim options for each color. You could literally have a tree in every room of your home. They are copiable and modifiable which is how this tree is so little in comparison to my previous two blogs. If you’d like to see the other options I blogged check out O Christmas Tree and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

It was released for the brand new Distrcit 23 event that started in November and is coming back December 23.

The HUD has both fresh and faded options for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as Omega and Catwa, face tattoo for the neck. I didn’t realize this event was already closed and had a hard time finding an end date so I apologize for the lateness.

This picture alone went through 3 versions. I had a really hard time getting just the right look for this picture. Normally, when I wear a formal gown I do some type of updo hair but I wanted something a little more edgy to go with the entire look.

Wizard in Winter

It is finally the time of year that I can listen to Trans-Siberian Orchestra and no one will look at me funny. I discovered TSO when I was 18, so very long ago and I fell in love with the mix of hard rock and orchestral sounds. The beauty and energy they put into every song they produce just makes me smile. TSO is my guilty pleasure and I will listen to them other times of the year, funny looks or not. When I am feeling down there is nothing better to lift my spirits than a song from TSO.

What is more wintery and Christmasy than a snowball fight? This fabulous pose from Reve Obscura comes with a mesh snowball and is bento enabled.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

It’s that time a year again, one filled with joy and happiness and challenges from Lawrence Pryce. I don’t know what possessed me to say yes, again! I did though and at least this time there was no zits. Honestly, setting up something for this challenge is lots of fun and I’m glad I could participate. Can’t wait until the next one.

I was given two items to create a Christmas picture with, I will cover those a little later, but that’s the easy part. For this challenge, the items given to me by Lawrence Pryce had to be visible in my picture but other than that the rest was up to me. I chose to create a Christmas morning scene and to do that I found the perfect backdrop from RAMA. This is an older gacha and you can still play for it at the inworld gacha store.

Sometimes when I take pictures, the muse is strong and I create multiple pictures for one blog. Today is one of those days. I can’t decide which of the 3 full view pictures I like the best so that means all three are going to be included. I’m trying, very hard, to grow as a photographer, blogger, and scene designer. I don’t think I am very good at decor but I do try hard and sometimes I get something I just have to try and share with the world.

The Arcade opened it’s doors on December 1, it took me a couple of days to head on over but when I did WOW. I went for some very specific things and then my eyes grazed across the advent gacha from Trompe Loeil. The 12 Days of Christmas advent gacha includes 12 keys to win to unlock the advent solarium. The solarium is free, simply grab the demo, play for your keys (I do recommend getting all twelve of them), go home, rez out the advent lantern and rez your keys. You get this stunning decor.

It’s not often that something inspires me so much that I create a pictorial spread. When I saw the offerings at this month’s FaMESHed thoughts began swirling in my brain, just growing larger and larger. I have done something I have never done before and featured multiple items; clothing and hair, in one blog post. I have learned over the three years I have been blogging though when the muse calls you must answer. Not doing so could be detrimental to your continued inspiration.

 In both pictures, there is one common theme, the brand new bathroom clutter set from Apple Fall. This set is available at FaMESHed and is for sale as individual pieces only. The set includes the washstand, mirror, make-up brushes, natural sea sponges, coral lid jar with bath bombs, hairbrushes, candle, and lotions. Prices for each piece range between L$175 and L$325. I also included some pieces from other collections to complete my look and tied it all in with this fabulous backdrop from RAMA.

I didn’t originally intend on featuring two outfits, but as I was building my scene I realized it was perfect for showing the progress of getting ready for a night on the town. This first outfit from CandyDoll was my first instinct to include and I had to grab this in the fatpack. This sexy, lowcut jumpsuit is available for purchase in 20 individual colors or a 25 color fatpack. The lace can be changed separately from the jumpsuit to create a totally unique look. This outfit is made only for Maitreya, Belleza Freya and Slink Hourglass.

Does this decor look familiar? Hair and makeup are done and I am dressed to impress in the fabulous dress from Just Because. Another item I couldn’t walk away with less than the fatpack. I love Annie’s stuff, her attention to detail is unrivaled and she really brings us the most stunning creations every time. This dress includes 26 regular colors and 6 fabulous metallics in the fatpack and is made for Maitreya, Belleza Isis and Freya, and Slink Hourglass and Physique.

Let it Snow

I won early access to FaMESHed, I never win any of this stuff so I was completely floored. Getting to go before the event opened and seeing all the amazing items that the designers had created for this monthly event. I got so many amazing things to share with you today and I can’t wait to show you all. I woke up to snow this morning, I am not ready for it but here it is so might as well use it to inspire me.

 Once upon a time, I blogged for this amazing group called Goose. I didn’t feel my decor abilities were up to the expectation to truly create amazing sceneries with Tyrek’s products and I stepped away, but I still have this amazing stuff and use it whenever I can, just not in an official capacity. I used a house that Goose released as a gacha rare quite some time ago and decorated it up with this amazing garland and wreath from SAYO, available right now at FaMESHed. The garland is modifiable so you can change the bow and hangar color if you choose, but I chose to leave it the white that is in the package. This garland and wreath are also copyable to create a stunning setting for your holiday decor.

I have been waiting for the right moment, the right inspiration to share this amazing outfit with you. Available from ChicModa during Whimsical this set includes a shirt, sweater, and skirt and are all sold individually. Fatpacks of each item are available but there is not a fatpack of the entire outfit. This outfit is fit for Maitreya and both Slink bodies only. The jacket has a HUD to control the outside layer, inside layer, belt, and buttons. As always, Kim is 100% original mesh created by our very own SassyNitely.

When I first saw these boots at Prism Events’ Tannebaum I knew they were just what I needed to complete my look. The wedge booties with the optional legwarmers are made for midfoot, which is so rare anymore and I love it! Reign really outdid themselves with this release. These shoes are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.

My second amazing find at the all-new round of FaMESHed was this spectacular hair from RunAway, I just love her hair. I mean really, what isn’t to love about it? I always choose the essentials pack because you never know when I’ll want to change from blond, it could happen. There is one size hair in the pack and it also comes with an Omega hairbase HUD, a pack of standard hairbases, color change HUD for the hat and 4 hairstyles. This hair is just superb.

Foxcity does some of my favorite bento poses in Second Life, her creativity is just astounding. I don’t know where she comes up with all her ideas but I am sure glad she does. Me Time is a set available at On9 and comes in 6 individual poses or a greedy pack that includes one exclusive pose as well. You also get makeup bottles in the fatpack set to use in your photography.

I have to thank my dear friend Ember Adored for pushing me toward this photograph. She’s a pushy woman and highly opinionated but she’s usually right. Whenever I am unsure of a shot or just want her opinion I will share it with her and she will tell me her honest critique of it and then suggest better ways to accomplish what I’m trying to do. The result is what you see to the right. Sometimes I astound myself. Glam Affair is at Collabor88 with this stunning skin made for the Lelutka Greer bento mesh head, I chose to wear it on my Lelutka May head and it’s just as stunning. 7 Tones are available for individual purchase, no fatpack is available and it includes lipsticks and eyeshadows with the skin HUD.

If you haven’t played PocketGacha you really don’t know what you’re missing out on. This innovative, HUD-based gacha system is the greatest thing to hit the grid since bento. Every month on the 15th, simply add the HUD to yourself, open it, give it permission to deduct Lindens, and play your heart away. This month Lotus was in PocketGacha with an 18 eye pack, 16 commons and 2 rares. These eyes are pretty fabulous. The applier is made for Catwa only but have no fear, there is a set of mesh eyes included as well.

Did I mention that the brand new round of FaMESHed opened today? Well it did and with it came some stunning gifts from the amazing creators. That’s right, join the FREE FaMESHed group, wear your tag and get several FREE gifts. Two of the items available from these amazing designers is the bracelet from Aphorism and the necklaces from Cae. The bracelet is as is, no metal change HUD or anything but it’s pretty awesome as is. The necklaces include a color change HUD that has 3 metals, 15 gemstones and either naughty or nice engraved on the face. There is a long and short version of the necklace, I chose to wear both.

The free stuff is awesome but as usual, the designers have pulled out all the stops to bring you their very best. When I saw these rings from Empyrean Forge I just had to have them. Made for Maitreya only and different rings for each hand (I really wish I could have shown you both sides but you can check out the ad photo here). There is a control HUD that contains 4 metals and 8 accents. These rings are just too cute to pass up.

I just can’t tell you enough how much I truly love SlackGirl and how honored I am to blog for her. She creates some of the most amazing mesh nails I’ve seen and she makes them for all bento-enabled hands. These nails are available now in the main store and Marketplace. They come with a HUD to change the texture to 10 different colors.

Since this song came out I have been waiting for a styling to fit the mood of the song and I finally found it with this post today. I’m completely addicted to this song and to top it all off I got a message accepting me as a blogger for The Makeover Room! I am so stoked about that, I love trying new makeups, skins, eyes and everything else and sharing them with my readers. This is a fabulous opportunity for me.

Today is the last day to get to the November round of Designer Showcase and when you’re there you can grab this awesome top and skirt set from Prism. This set is made for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya and comes with a HUD for 4 gorgeous silk colors. The skirt and top are individually colored so that you can mix and match them if you’d like.

The lipstick shades are bright and vibrant and so much fun. This set comes with an all-in-one applier HUD for Catwa, Omega and LAQ, a separate HUD for Lelutka and system layers for those of you choose not to go mesh. 14 colors are included in this set.

O Christmas Tree

 

Decor blogging is not my strong suit, this is why pre-made backdrops are some of my favorite photo accessories. Once in a while, something truly amazing scrolls across my Facebook timeline and I’m driven to try my hand at decor blogging again. This is also the only time I rethink and retake my photos, several times in some cases. I’ve been trying to figure out ways to make my blog stand out from the other bloggers in Second Life, to be honest, there are some truly amazing bloggers and I often compare myself to them. I try not to, I have my own style, my own ideas and I don’t want to copy anyone, but I would like to think that someday I will be as good as they are.

Today I want to share with you this amazing tree from Swallow Designs, the entire reason I decided to try my hand at decor blogging again. Available right now at Cosmopolitan Events it’s available in two different prim counts and comes with four colors. I chose the silver one because I just love the beauty of this tree.

These guys are so cute, static decor only. They do interact with you through local chat and a pop-up menu.
