The Coven

The Coven is a new event in SL featuring all things witch and magic related.  This month, they are running a special Lunar Festival, with the emphasis being on the moon.  Here are are two of the gifts available if your join their FREE group.

The hand bracelet is rigged for Bento (and I have trouble believing the creator’s claim that she did it by eye and it was her first rigging exercise!  It works perfectly on Slink Dynamics).  It comes in versions for Slink, Maitreya, and Vesta.

The nail are is in an Omega applier, and this is one of three gothic themed styles available in the applier.

Nice work!

  • Jewelry: Bento Hand Bracelet by Valika Rituals
  • Nail Art: Goth Gurl by Misschevious (only available at the event!)
  • Wedding band: Our Ring by Aeon (it’s ours, you can’t have a copy sorry)
  • Hand: Slink Dynamic
  • Event location: The Coven Event

Urban beauty

I love exploring in SL.  Although Aeon is far better at me at getting out to take photos, I do have a list of places that I’ve come across over the years which make for really good settings.  When I have the time, I do try to get out.  Honestly 🙂

Anduril has been on my list for a while although I don’t think I’ve taken any pics  there before.  It’s mostly urban with a little bit of a 50’s feel, perfect for sitting out on the stoop on a hot summer’s evening…

…but just around the corner you find beautiful little niches of greenery and parks.  It’s certainly worth a visit!

My jean miniskirt and sandals are gifts from Redeux.  The mini skirt comes with regular mesh sizes plus fitmesh for Lara, Hourglass, and Physique.  It has a HUD to change the color of the belt.  The sandals are in sizes for both Slink and Maitreya flats.

My top was a Mother’s Day gift from memory, and is in sizes for Lara, Hourglass, Physique, and Belleza.  It has a rather cool HUD with eight colors, but you can tint it with a color picker in the HUD!  Great idea!

Warm sands

Summer may be drawing to a close, but the water is warm and you will have to drag me from the beach.  Here’s a lovely little treasure from MOoH! that I picked up at this summer’s Aloha Fair.   Their Rainbow Bikini has been updated to include not only the standard five rigged mesh sizes, but fitmesh for pretty much any mesh body you might like.  It’s fun and flirty and suits this girl just fine!

  • MOoH! — Rainbow bikini
  • EarthStonesTumbled Stones (spectrum) necklace, earrings, and bracelet
  • [evolove]October #2 pose gift

Happy aloha Friday!  I hope that you are enjoying beautiful weather and warm sands!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Another one

A lot of creators use this mesh to design nice one piece swimsuits, but every now and then, someone comes up with something that makes their design stand out.  Not only does this suit have an extensive HUD that allows you to control the main and hem textures, it also allows you to display and texture some additional straps!

There are fits for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Hourglass, and Physique.  No standard sizes are included.

As I said, the texture HUD allows you to color the main suit, the hem, and the straps, and hide or show the straps.  There are 16 different textures included, so the possibilities are endless!  (Well actually they aren’t endless, there are 163 + 162 = 4352 possibilities.  Geek girl showing, lol)

Sunshine

I’ve been wanting to share this little outfit with you for ages now, and I’ve finally got the perfect excuse.  My lovely Blue gave me a gift certificate to Blueberry ages ago for my birthday and these were two little pieces that I fell in love with.  Britan is a beautiful little denim mini, and Koko is the fun half-cropped top!  Both items are sold single-colour, but come in rigged mesh and mesh-body-fitmesh sizes.  Britan has a little HUD that allows you to change the belt colour, rivet/metal texture, and panty colour — or just do away with the panties in the first place.  Koko comes in two variants for each colour — with and without the printed pattern.

I really am excited to share these foil freckles with you from Alaska Metro.  Alaska is rolling out a new free-join group — Alaskametro<3 loves, and the foil freckles are your gift for joining up.  They come both in Omega appliers and standard tattoo layers in six different lovely shades.  I’m in love!

Your look is out there just waiting for you to find it.  Thank you, Blue my love, for helping me find my way every day.  ♥♥♥

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Ottilie

If you haven’t heard about Redeux yet, this is an exciting new event that started in April and runs every second month.  Creators showcase items at discounted prices, and there are gachas from past events.  There are gifties at each stall, just wear the Redeux VIP group tag.  The group is FREE to join.

This is the first gift I unpacked from the August round.

The August round of Redeux is on now, and runs until August 21st, so hurry over!

This is a one-size-fits-all fitmesh dress, and it works beautifully with Lara.  I like the chain highlights on the dress, and I always love it when creators go to the trouble to make detail like this in 3d instead of just textures.

  • Outfit: Ottilie Dress Taupe Silver by Meva
  • Body: Lara by Maitreya
  • Hands: Slink Dynamic
  • Hair: Stone Cold Seduction by Exile

Heart of Soraya

Bee and Solace at Silvan Moon Designs have a wonderful exclusive for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival!    The three-piece Psalm of Soraya has four lovely commons colours, and full sets in coal and ice as rares.

I shared Spyralle‘s Grow a New Heart with you before, it looks just perfect in Soraya’s chest cut-out

Solas’ fine mesh skills show up in the lovely lace-up back.  And take a look at Bee’s butterflies hiding in the gown texture!

You’d best hurry: the Fantasy Gacha Carnival only lasts until September 7th, then it, too, disappears like a dream.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

One piece sparkles

I like one piece swimsuits more than I like bikinis, and as we had a beach party at Eden yesterday, and I’d worn nearly every swimsuit I own to one event there or another, I went shopping.  I was looking for something in white with laced sides as that look is really in at the moment.  But after a while looking (and trying three demos) I couldn’t find anything I was happy with.  So I broadened my search and found this suit!

It’s fitmesh specific to Maitreya Lara only, and comes in six different soft colors.  And oh my, does it glitter when you move!

Scarily, there was no demo or comments on the marketplace page so I bought it with my fingers crossed, but I’m here to tell you that the fit is pretty near perfect, with just one alpha section needed.

Aeon said “OMG you’re going to have some funny tan lines!”  Pffft 🙂

Here’s a closeup of the ties at the back so you can see just how much trouble the designer went to.  It’s an awesomely eye-catching outfit if you have Lara, and I’ll certainly be wearing it to a few more beaches soon!

Box on

Being always on the lookout for new outfits, I watch group chat for SLF&O for Midnight Mania boards to slap, and any other offers that come up.  Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with a new outfit to get a blog post out for you every day!

Anyway, as I was watching yesterday, someone announced a free outfit at a store, and I dutifully went to look.  And how good is this?  Some designers are just awesomely generous!

The gym shorts and crop top are separates, and come in sizes for Isis, Freya, Venus, Physique, Hourglass, TMP, and Maitreya.

Boxing is a great way to keep fit, or so I hear hehehe.  I knew I’d find an opportunity to use the fist pose for my hands one day, and this is it!

There is also a HUD included that lets you texture the shorts and top separately.  It includes some rather funny designs for the top 🙂
