I know, Christmas passes and many of us take down the lights, we put away decorations, we start thinking of spring…. but spring is a long way away, and Winter still has a lot of beauty to share. Glitter has a lot of beauty to share, too — Queen of Ice was one of their Advent gifties, and it’s too beautiful to keep to myself. 🙂
Queen of Ice features Omega and Belleza appliers with beautiful flexi add-on bits for the gown and veils. It features a high neckline which let me get away with the beautiful Heart of the Sea from Zuri, a beautiful gift from a more beautiful friend. Heart features a HUD with a choice of gemstones!
Daisy Wreath from Caverna Obscura is an old favourite, but the Family Tree of Life pendant is a lovely new item from Earthstones. It features a choice of metal options, plus three gems that are independently selectable from the “standard” set of birthstone colours.
Ranger of Islavare is featured in five different colours — four of which are shown here. Shadow (shown at the top) is a lovely black theme, and below you can see Hunter (sagey green), Brooke (dark blue), and Rune (aqua). There’s also Secret, a beautiful dark red (not shown).
Ranger features the dress, leggings, cloak and matching boots (not shown here). Dress and leggings are available in the five standard rigged sizes plus standard, Slink Physique and Maitreya fitmeshes. There are also standard layer and Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya appliers for the leggings to help you work better with legging/boot conflicts.
Another dress that’s been hiding in my unopened folder, this one’s by Rowena Springflower.
It comes in standard sizes, fitmesh for classic sizes, and specific fitmesh sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink Physique. While this is fitmesh for Lara, there are a few breakthrough issues that are really difficult to deal with on the Maitreya HUD due to the neckline. One of the classic sizes in fitmesh maybe better (and of course you could tweak your shape to deal with it too).
The absolutely fantastic necklace is included, and there is a six color HUD for the dress and the necklace.
Newness for your inner geek! Let your nerdiness take over the ‘verse! Jadziyah at Eclectic Stars has some sweet mesh leggings for you! They’re maybe not the warmest for the winter, those are triangular cutouts! They’re fun and just a little cheeky.
Who wouldn’t want to be warm and snuggly in a hoodie like this? 8-bit graphics and a zipper down just so. Perfect for a tease of a t-shirt underneath… or just a little skin. Or even better, a pendant that that Daleks would surely love to get their hands on — a lovely little treat from the Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop, complete with matching earrings.
Here’s some old tech for you that still holds up surprisingly well.
Before the explosion of fitmesh probably about 18 months ago, one of the better ways of doing a dress was with a mesh panel to provide the illusion of a dress either over system layers, or in this case, appliers. I’ve never really liked the look of the panels because as they are rigged you can’t adjust them, and if the designer doesn’t get them just right, they can look terrible.
Then again, when the designer does a good job as is the case here, and adds some flexi prim skirts too, you can end up with a great effect. The detail on the applier top is just fantastic in this case, and the mesh panel joins are mostly hidden (or you are distracted from seeing them) by the flexi skirts.
Some simple sandals and my fav long hair completes the look. Simple, effective, great!
This little outfit was from last year’s Boho Fair.
There are a whole bunch of fits in the box, including standard sizes for the top and skirt, fitmesh for Maitreya and Slink, and multiple sizes for the tie, all unrigged for easy resizing and positioning.
The matching shoes for Slink High are also included.

Aloha kakou! It has been a busy holiday season and I’ve been too long away — visiting family and then a research conference and the start of the term kept me awfully busy.
But I’m back to show you a lovely reissued gown from Spyralle. Chione was a daily advent gifty back in December, and features a flexi skirt and new omega appliers! Long time readers know how much I like a flexi skirt for dancing. They just look so much better than long mesh!
I think that I have showed off the Twinkling Lights jewelry — earrings, bracelet, anklet, and necklace (not shown) — in an earlier post. I’ll admit I wear them every chance I can get in this snowy season!
I hope that you had a wonderful season. I know some of us will be happier for the end of cold and snow (I will be for the sake of getting to run outside again!) but I still love cuddling up in front of a warm fire while it’s snowy outside — or taking a nice walk in a snowstorm with that someone special.
Mahalo to Kerryth at Spyralle for a great holiday season, and for updating so many outfits with Omega appliers. I’ll surely be showing you some more from there!
