Make it Snow

If you’re not laughing yet, you may should just skip this post. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Have I mentioned that I love Eclectic Stars’ sense of humour? ¬†How about a nice snuggly jumper? ¬†No, really, I mean literally¬†Snuggly, ¬†A warm funny jumper in five standard mesh sizes!

Even better,¬†¬†this is one of those wonderful extra-fuzzy-on-the-inside jumpers that feels so good on your skin. ¬†ūüėÄ

This island girl loves her snow — Poli’ahu has been dancing on her mauna, and the summit is covered in the white stuff. ¬†Even Mauna Loa got some snow this past weekend!

So I’m ready for the cold weather. ¬†Are you? ¬†Make it Snow. ¬†ūüôā

Aloha!  A hui hou!

Nightlife

This gorgeous little mini was on the MM board at Etchaflesh the other day!  My color too!

nightlife_003

Unfortunately it doesn’t come with a Maitreya fitmesh version, but has Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus, Slink Physique, and standard sizes (that appear to be fitmesh).¬† I’m wearing a standard small on Lara and as you can see it works beautifully.

As a redhead (preferably unless I’m changing colors for the blog) this is one of my favourite colors!

Cozy

Mmmms ,warm and snug and still sexy for the winter? ¬†Yes, please! ¬†I love a sweater and tights, and¬†Alaska Metro <3¬†has the lovely Heather¬†sweater dress in 6 colours! ¬†It’s hard to beat a nice form-fitting sweaterdress in the cooler months.

You know I’m bad

It’s nearly that time of the year!¬† Advent calendars are underway (OMG!)¬† I thought I’d photograph a funny outfit from last year to get the season started!

Fitmesh for Lara!¬† In 2015 ūüôā¬† Fitmesh for Belleza, Slink and stardard size fitmesh too.¬† Very cool for a year ago!

To seek out new life, and new civilisations…

I’m so happy to announce that I’m now an official blogger for¬†Eclectic Stars!¬† Jadziyah has a wonderful sense of style for all the nerds out there of every stripe! ¬† Let me share with you a great example of her work —¬†Shifty¬†— and maybe stir up a little controversy!

shifty_c004

Rowena Springlower’s¬†Tanith boot is the perfect fit to complement this outfit, and comes with a fantastic colour HUD!

Hmmm… now, how did¬†that happen? ¬†Let me check my code….

shifty_c002

As you might expect, Shifty is available in three colours: blue, red, and gold for science, engineering, and command. ¬†Hmm, tricorders have gotten smaller over the years… who could have guessed?
shifty_c008

Wait, what controversy? ¬†Jadziyah named each outfit for the colour scheme on the¬†new series – where command is red and engineering is gold. ¬†In the original 1966 series, gold was for command, and red for engineering and security! ¬†I’ve seen angry fights break out over this that make some sporting rivalries look tame! ¬†And yes, blue was science in all series.

shifty_c006

Whichever side of the controversy you’re on, you’ll love¬†Shifty. ¬†It’s available in fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Physique bodies, as well as the standard five mesh sizes. ¬† ¬†Beam on over to¬†Eclectic Stars¬†and see what other fab things there are for you to find!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

I dream of shimmer

These harem style pants and top are from an old group gift by Paisley Daisy from last year.¬† I don’t know how I missed photographing then, but better late than never ūüôā

shimmer_003

It only comes in standard rigged mesh, and I’m wearing on system here with it’s associated alpha.¬†¬† It’s heavily materials enabled and glitters and shimmers nicely, hence the name ūüôā

Another outfit from the Boho Fair, this shorts and top set comes from KiB Designs.

boho-short-top_002

There are three set of shorts and matching tops, all the same mesh but with different textures, and they’re specific fitmesh for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza only.¬† I’m seeing more designers do this (leave out standard rigged mesh) but I think it would be nice if they did a fitmesh version for the system avi if they are going to do so.¬† Else they are limiting their market.

Porcelina

I was sorting inventory the other day when I came across my folder from the Boho Fair from earlier this year!¬† I’d completely forgotten it as it wasn’t in my usual place for unopened things!¬† So, yay, blog fodder ūüôā

porcelina_001

This is a great outfit from Prism, and in addition to the five standard mesh sizes, comes with a one-size-fits-all fitmesh version.¬† It’s all one piece so no mix and match.¬† I’m wearing it on Lara, and it has a tiny issue at the back of the skirt which could easily be fixed with a shape tweak (I retouched the below pic, shhh).

The bee and honeycomb texture is very cute!

porcelina_005

I matched it with some knee high boots from Baby Monkey, which has a huge color selection HUD, and I nearly got a perfect color match!

Snow and steam

This is the November group gift from Azul.¬† I unpacked it and looked and went OMG how am I going to photograph this?¬† Black is terrible for showing up detail, and the detail on this is rather nice, in a steampunky type of way.¬† Even with shadows enabled and a prim point light to try and pick up the highlights, my photos don’t do it justice.¬† You need to run and pick it up yourself!¬† Azul is FREE to join, and there are a ton of group gifts available when you do!

azul-gg-nov2016_002

The dress is in standard size rigged mesh.  There are no special sizes for mesh bodies.  I tried it on Lara anyway, and it works, although I had to wear the medium size (makes note to go to the gym).

azul-gg-nov2016_003

As the dress is steampunk influenced, I found a nice Neo-Victorian alleyway to photograph in.¬† With the snow on the ground, I know the holiday season is just around the corner ūüôā
