Pirate

This was my outfit for yesterday’s themed party at Eden.  Sometimes with Second Life fashion, you just have to mix things up and see what works.  This outfit is a complete mishmash of items from about ten different sources, including four jewelry makers, an old pair of system pants, boots from a lingerie set, and even a hat from the library!

This took some time to put together, in particular the sword belt, which is a large linkset.  Edit linked and move and rotate every little piece of the sword one at a time omg!  Don’t forget to take a backup of something you are editing like this!

Let’s see if I can detail some of this 🙂

  • Pants and red sash: From Lady Buccaneer by The Bottom Line (marketplace link)
  • Sword and belt: Princely Pirate Belt with sword by GK Designs (marketplace link)
  • Hair: LIV – braid (back) by EMO-tions
  • Necklace: Ho Ho Ho and A Bottle of Rum by Chop Zuey
  • Earring left: Basic Hoops Gold by Soonsiki/Besom
  • Earring right: Cheyanne Earrings by Tantalum
  • Ring: “Modern” Women’s Ring by J’Adore!
  • Hands: Slink Casual
  • Boots: Psyche Thigh High Boots by House of Rfyre
  • Hat: Female Pirate Hat B2 – available in your inventory’s library folder

When’s that train?

While talking to Sorcha at Nevermore Designs earlier, she let me have a sneak peek at what’s coming up at the Secret 60 event for the weekend.  The dress and jeans come in all the standard sizes, and the jeans include shapes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Physique and Hourglass.  I’m wearing this on Maitreya Lara, and I had to change my shape to get this to work for me.  I’m pretty hourglass-y shape-wise, so I had to slim down in the (hates this word) saddlebag area 🙂

The top is fairly uniform black, including the belt detail, so here’s a closeup.

And again, the pack includes footwear, this time heels for Slink Highs!

All three pieces are included in the box at the event, for the unbelievably cheap price of L$60.  Run and get yours!

Balloons, bridges, and blue

A slate blue dress that is!  There are so many events on at the moment, I’m overwhelmed.  I had to ask Sorcha Jinx – the creator of the dress  – to remind me which event she was featuring at so I could tell you!  D’oh!

The dress is rigged mesh in standard sizing and the calf high boots are included!  The dress has a lovely little ruffle detail at the bodice. And neither Sorcha and I could figure out which event it was at!  She thought it was the Secret 60 event, but I’m not so sure?  As she said “Oh goodness!  It’s been a busy month!”

There are a lot of events going on at the moment, including Shiny Shabby (if you can get in!)  I scored these jeans there yesterday, and wanted to show them to you.  I’ve matched them with a wonderful little ribbed tank top that I got from a Midnight Mania board (but the item is available in-store).  Hope you like the look 🙂

Simply Wow

I liked my lighting so much from yesterday that I thought I’d photograph this babydoll with it too!  This is from Bonita Wear available on market place.  It comes on system layers but also has appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and TMP.

A Maiden’s Gown

Ohhh, I’m a horrible tease, and I apologise in advance – but more on that at the end of this.

You may have noticed, I’m a bit of a sucker for medieval or faerie-inspired clothing.  I accumulate far more than I can ever wear, but that doesn’t stop me!   Last week’s  group gift from The White Armory is a wonderful addition to my wardrobe.  The Maiden of E’na Dorei gown is fitmesh, with add-on flexi sleeves.

The fitmesh is designed for the standard SL avatar, and not the Physique or Lara.  Nevertheless, it fit my Physique body quite well, with just a little use of the alpha zones.

I love the details, they really make any outfit of this nature!  Now, why am I a tease?  Because I just found out that The White Armory changes their group gifts frequently, so this lovely item is no longer offered.  What’s the moral, then?  Make them one of your regular stops!  You’ll hate to miss out on their next one!   So please stop by and take a look.

Mahalo and aloha, my friends!

Lustful nights

Here’s another quick post from the After Hours Hunt, ending on the 29th of February.  The hunt is FREE.

This lace bodysuit is just delicious, and comes on system layers and has appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Brazilia Doll, and Omega.  Unfortunately, it’s spoiled a little by a poor seam join-up over the shoulders (which I’ve been careful not to photograph).  I can’t complain as it’s a FREE hunt item.  If the designer fixed this, I’d be happy to pay for this level of detail 🙂

The detail level of the texture is absolutely wonderful close up!

This wonderfully detailed little dress is from the After Hours Hunt, going on until the 29th of February.  It’s in fitmesh in standard sizes, and has body specific fitmesh sizes for Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya.  This is a FREE hunt!
