Spirit of Hope

One of the things I’m most happy about in Second Life is that we’re not just a game, we’re not just playing about, we do try to make a difference.  Creations for Parkinson’s has organised a major Hallowe’en event to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s Team Fox in support of research of Parkinson’s Disease.  100 per cent of all proceeds from the Gotham Island Event will be donated to Team Fox!

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs are taking part with two wonderful creations.  Spirit of Hope is an all fitmesh gown and overskirt for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara.  It is beautiful and simple and elegant.

Spirit‘s overskirt features beautiful pale lavender floral accents that complement the lavender skirting on the gown.  Bee has really outdone herself with the texturing here!

Please visit Gotham Island Event and financially support the fight to end Parkinson’s Disease.  Researchers are making progress, but they need the funding to carry out the work!  We can end this debilitating syndrome!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

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.

Friday meoooooww!

Happy Friday!  Wherever you are, I hope you’re looking forward to a bright shiny weekend!  

Katy features fitmesh shorts for Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara and SLink Physique bodies, as well as the standard rigged mesh sizes.  The cute kittykat top is an Omega applier (also comes with standard SL layer).  The lovely butterflies tattoo from ERSCH allows you to place that tat on either leg — or both!

The sky is blue, the breeze is soft, the smell of flowers is in the air.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Aloha!  A hui hou!

Irises

I know, I’m always going on about how nice flexi dresses are for dancing.  So let’s put my money where my mouth is: Eden’s Summerqueen dance was this past weekend, and Paris METRO Couture had exactly what I was looking for with Van Gogh Irises.

I added a bit of jewelery from Spyralle: Summer Leaf earrings, and a new treat from the June 2017 SWANK event: Grow a New Heart necklace in emerald.  Simple, clean, and the perfect complement to Irises.

Now, as you might expect, a flexi gown is a bit complex.  This full outfit comes in at about 200k complexity, and a good bit of that is in the flexiprim skirt.  That’s about as high as I like to go for clothing in SL, but nothing compares with flexi for long gowns to dance in!

Happy Summer, everyone!  A hui hou!  Mahalo!

A garden from Moonstar

I’ve got a little flowery number from Moonstar to share with you today!

Purple Floral Minidress was a group gift a week or two ago, and comes in the five standard rigged-mesh sizes plus fitmesh for one of the Belleza bodies as well as SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara.  The belt is textured in-place, but looks lovely!

Butterflies

Kerryth at Spyralle has a lovely spring/summer dress for you, exclusively at the current round at Swank.  Lila is a mesh dress in four lovely palettes, each one featuring the lovely multicolour fractal patterns you’ve come to love in Kerryth’s work.

EarthStones’ Flight of Fancy is the perfect accent to Lila.  Flight‘s HUD allows you to select bead and wing stone colours from three different textures.  The blue/green ‘swallowtail’ scheme is perfect for Lila blue!

Due to changing customer demand, Kerryth is trying something new.  The standard five rigged mesh sizes are being sold in one box, and fitmesh for Maitreya Lara, both SLink bodies, and all three Belleza bodies is sold together in the other box.  The idea is to help cut down on the unused copies that you either delete or sit around cluttering up your inventory.  The demo box (free, of course!) has all sizes in it.  But make sure that you get the right one when you purchase!

Spirited

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a wonderful treat for you at Shiny Shabby!  Spirit Maiden is a lovely two-part mesh gown (gown and overskirt) for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara in five wonderful colours!

I really love this necklace.  Crescent Moon from Caverna Obscura features a little bling spot, but I’ll admit that I’m not crazy about bling.  Fortunately, the necklace is mod, so I could go in, edit linked, find the bling and remove it.  Perfect!

Spirit Maiden is available in five lovely shades but ONLY for Lara and Physique mesh bodies.  SL fashion definitely seems to be favouring these two bodies!  Stop by Shiny Shabby, pick up a demo, and give it a test drive!

Wild orchids

Here’s a lovely little gown at a price that can’t be beat — Wild Orchid from Dressed by Lexi!  It comes in three lovely colours and is perfect for a summer evening dance!

Wild Orchid has a lovely jewelry set, but is lacking a necklace… which is a happy spot for an engraved heart pendant given to me from my lovely Blue.  <3

Wild Orchid is in my favourite style of gowns: it makes good use of flexi prims, which are the best to dance in.  One of these days a smart gown maker will start creating mesh tops with flexi-prim gowns, and save the Omega applier layers for the (hidden) glitch layers.  But until then, I’ll gladly take an applier top so that I can get a gown that dances well and has that light gauzy feel!

Dressed by Lexi has some lovely wonderful dancing gowns for some incredibly good prices.  Visit today, and go out and dance!

Fluttering by the lines

I’m SOOOO ready for summer with a little mix-and-match for your midweek! The organic lines of Hilly Haalan‘s Butterfly Top balance the geometry of Alaska Metro‘s new Juana miniskirt!

It’s a nice chance to augment with a new necklace and earrings from EarthStones.  Flight of Fancy is a bead-and-butterfly themed jewelry set, components available independently, with two different choices of necklace length.  Each has a texture-change HUD included, allowing you to alter bead, butterfly, and metal colours.

Alaska Metro‘s Juana is available in six different palettes, in five standard rigged mesh sizes plus fitmesh for Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus, SLink Physique and Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.  Hilly Haalan‘s Butterfly Top comes in the standard five rigged mesh plus fitmesh for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara.  The Butterfly Top comes in two varieties, “casual” and “glam”, each with a 20-texture HUD!

Happy Hump Day!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Indira’s light

Bee and Solas at Silvan Moon Designs bring us a new wave of fashion that I’ll show over the next couple of weeks.  Today is Indira’s Light, an elegant little mesh gown in four colours.

Indira’s Light comes in SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara fitmesh, and consists of two fitmesh pieces, a dress and coat piece (both shown).  There are flexi bits for a little swirl as you walk and dance, and two decorative mesh pieces at the belly and for the neck.  They’re extraordinarily elegant, although the neck piece looks like it might be a little pokey.  🙂

Stop by Silvan Moon Designs and take a look!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
