Tactical Advantage

When you hunt and gather clothes and things in SL as I mostly do, sometimes you get great stuff, and sometimes you get a mixed bag.¬† This outfit is in the latter category ūüôā

The applier bodysuit is just so so, but the guns and the shoulder holster are superb!¬† The outfit comes on system and appliers for just about everything, and also comes with a long sleeve shirt version. ¬† Also in the box are shorts in standard mesh sizes (which just don’t work on Lara), non-rigged boots, and a thigh knife.¬† The hardware will certainly get a run with some other outfits hehe.

We had a swimsuit party at Eden the other day.¬† I was going to wear a one piece I’d picked up a while ago, but I showed Aeon what I’d been demoing before I decided to wear the existing outfit.¬† Overnight, she got me a gift card for the one I’d demoed.¬† She is a wonder!

Now girls, I’m going to tell you a secret.¬† If you want something to really fit Maitreya, buy one made by Maitreya!¬† Simple as that.¬† This sexy little one piece comes in one size for Lara (obviously) and you can choose from a number of colors including this green, black, taupe, a quite a few pastel colors in between.¬† Each color is sold separately unless you have the money to burn for the fatpack.

The outfit is marketed as a bodysuit but if this can’t double as a swimsuit, I don’t know what can.¬† If you have a good pair of fitmesh jeans or shorts, you can easily wear this under them as of course it’s fitmesh, and the fit is flawless.

Steel Magnolias

I’m showing you an old mesh dress today that I rediscovered while sorting inventory.

The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, and while I’m wearing it on Lara here, it’s only really suitable for system bodies with the included alpha if you were going out dancing in it.¬† The cuts on the Lara HUD is just not quite right for it and I had to pose carefully ūüôā

Having said that, it’s a pretty little dress, and you can optionally wear the spikes at the bodice (they come as a rigged mesh attachment), and there is a HUD to color them too.

While the two pictures above show the dress up as nearly black, it’s subtly textured, and the texture shows up much better in world than in my photos.¬† Here’s an enhanced close-up to show you the detail.

It’s time to help support¬†M√©decins Sans Fronti√®res (MSF) (Doctors Without Borders) again at¬†Spoonful of Sugar.¬† MSF is an organisation of health care workers who supply medical care to people in dire need in some of the most dangerous places in the world, and¬†Spyralle¬†wants to make the deal all the sweeter for you with¬†Ireni.

Ireni is available in all of your favourite mesh sizes: five rigged mesh sizes, three Belleza, two SLink, Maitreya and TMP.

 

What better to complement than my favourite flower from Island Style Designs and some gorgeous honu earrings from Spyralle ?

There are many beautiful things at Spoonful of Sugar, stop by, do a little shopping, and help out those in need.  We are all family, and we all need each other

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Brewmaiden

I have a nice outfit suitable for RP today.  I just need a tray with beer steins on it!

The outfit is in standard mesh sizes only and comes with a five color texture HUD to control the colors of the dress.

The sandals are included, and while they are unrigged, seem to work nicely on Maitreya flat feet.

aurora’s glow

Sometimes some amazing things come down the pike and you just go wow

Prism offers Aurora, an exclusive for the¬†68 Main Event¬†going on¬†right now.¬† This bodysuit is absolutely¬†stunning in its materials and lighting, and simply must be seen to be believed.¬† ¬†It’s materials-enabled, and reflects local lighting beautifully.¬†¬†Aurora comes with several lighting effects, the principle one is a set of multicoloured invisible lights that circle and rotate about you, causing the bodysuit to shimmer in amazing ways.

The other lighting effect consists of a set of particle generators worn on the hands that shimmer and leave trails as you move.¬† They’re particularly spectacular when you dance!

The bento wings come with a simple built-in animation script, but they do not flap well: they shift from one static pose to another. THE GOOD NEWS is that a bento wing AO (such as the one that came with my B-Wings from¬†Bare¬†Rose) works¬†amazingly well with Aurora‘s wings!

As much fun as it was to take pics of this bodysuit, my images cannot do it justice.  Fortunately, you can go to 68 Main Event and take a look for yourself: Prism has a demonstration dummy set up for your perusal.  Note that the light motion for the dress seems a bit slower than that on the demo unit at the event (this is a plus by my thinking).

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Maai is a store I really like, but they have been really quiet for some time now.¬† They moved to a big new store and a lot of vendors with coming soon went up, and then it all went quiet.¬† I’m happy to say that something finally seems to be happening over there, and as evidence, here is the latest group gift from Maai!

The lingerie is for Maitreya Lara only, and the bra, panties, and garter are all separate.¬† The stockings are also from Maai as a free gift (find them on the main counter), and again are only available for Lara.¬† The stockings also come in white and nude colors.¬† The bows on the lingerie are very cute ūüôā

Since Aeon and I started this blog, I’ve thought that fashion photography should be all about the clothes, and a lot of my photos are done in the studio to reflect this.¬† Aeon is a nice balance for me because she is far more concerned with getting out and finding a nice setting for her outfits.¬† But you know, for a change, I wanted something other than the white backdrop to shoot against, so I got this little vanity table.¬† It has some excellent little poses and animations in it, and the creator has tried to think of everything, including multiple copies of the objects in different colors.¬† Also, everything is mod!¬† What a great little addition to our set of props!

Lucia

Prism Design has a very nice gift for the Renaissance Hunt that’s going on right now.¬† The gift includes both a gown, and a full length wrap-around cloak for the guys (although I suspect we might be able to wear it too)!

The gown is in standard mesh sizes and the texturing is really nice (although as I tend to comment on most materials enabled clothing, the shine is a little overdone.  I wonder if designers actually look at their materials enabled stuff in a photo lighting setup?)

For a gown like this, my first choice in hairstyle is this wonderful do from A&A.¬† I don’t wear A&A as much as I used to before the jellydoll project, but this hairstyle is a must with this gown!
