Bright beauty from Anna’s Nest!

Aloha, my friends!  I was introduced to a lovely new shop the other day when I met the owner, Annabell Wandsworth.  Anna’s Nest Home and Fashions is a wonderfully eclectic shop, with some wonderfully detailed goodies for your home and for your body!

Drape Dress is a lovely mesh gown in standard rigged mesh and fitmesh sizes for SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies.  It fits just right, particularly in back… so dance with me slow.. and hold me just so.

Please stop by Anna’s Marketplace link and have a look around.  Her home decorations are incredible, you won’t be disappointed!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

a hidden oasis

As the heat of the afternoon fell away and softer breezes blew across the sands, she slipped from the safety of the seraglio and out to visit her hidden oasis… a place of beauty and respite.

I’m a sucker for beautiful silks, diaphanous and flowing.  Caverna Obscura surely has mastered this art, combining fitmesh for those of us who love our mesh bodies with flexiprims for skirts.  Starlight certainly is an excellent example.  I stumbled across it while looking for some white silks for a recent event at Eden, and immediately fell in love.

Starlight features fitmesh sleeves, top, and skirt — each in a opaque and diaphanous fitmesh and rigged mesh version, with flexiprim silks to augment.  But wait, Aeon, you say!  long mesh skirting is horrid for dancing, you always say so!   Ahhhh, but Caverna was thinking ahead: there’s a full flexi skirt in here as well, so that nothing impedes your movement!

All of the floral enhancements (with exception of Persefona’s wreath crown) are separate mesh pieces, and can be worn or left off at your convenience.  This is truly an amazing piece, and a beautiful addition to Caverna’s line.

Join me at the oasis… feel the cool waters at your feet, the lovely breeze at your cheek, whispering through your hair….

Death and all her friends

Some music, because Whit taught me.  🙂   Will I lose friends for Coldplay?

I know, it’s already all Hallow’s on the far side of the world, but in Europe and the Americas we’re still in the Eve!  Happy Hallowe’en, my lovely friends!  How about a little gift from G Field today?  The wonderful Roodvosje shared Death Girl in her lovely post last week, and I fell so in love with it that I had to share it with you in my own way!

Black is tough to wear — I had to weave special darke magicks about it to keep the white powder sugar that falls from my donuts from showing against it… but the cloak has such a lovely deep crimson lining and beautiful buckle detail!

A quick note about the hood.  Like hats, hoods are tricky, only moreso.  G Field did a fantastic job in leaving enough hair space around the skull, so I was able to find something.  I love Analog Dog, and Val fit very nicely.  I had to do a little editing on some of the strands on the back of my head — you can edit, and go into “edit linked” mode and shrink those pesky pokers and move them individually.  I did a larger piece on this a year or so ago, it’s tricky work but not bad.  FIRST FIRST FIRST, always make a copy of the hair!  The hair will always look horrid when you take the hood off, so you want to work with a copy!

I’m so totally in love with this dress and cloak that I think I’ll keep it about.. for whenever I need to show my darke side.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!  Mahalo — a hui hou!

Fallen goddess

The mist hangs close to your skin, a cool shiver runs down your spine that had nothing to do with the cold.  You look around furtively, and there — framed in the glow of the streetlight, regal and shining in silver and black… one who walks as if she owns these streets…

Okay, I confess — I am NOT a fan of hats in SL.  Even when they’re pretty, they…. just don’t work very well.  But then sometimes the perfect outfit just pops into existence for you.  When I found Silvan Moon Designs‘ new exclusive dress for the Fallen Gods Decennial, I knew that Spyralle‘s Breakfast in Vegas would make quite the statement.

The monsters were out, all right… but she was the one to be wary of.

The Queen of the Fall

Blue mentioned yesterday that the Sisters of Eden held their annual Autumn Queen dance this weekend, and our lovely Frani was chosen as the Autumn Queen!  Congratulations Frani!

Frani layered this beautiful gown from Bella Moda with an applier layer from Paisley Daisy to create her ensemble.  It’s a delightful mixture of sheer with a metallic glimmer, and it suits her well!

We’re so happy to have Queen Frani!  Long may she reign!  Well, until the Winterqueen…. but I’m so happy for autumn!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

dark chocolate

Paisley Daisy offers Sweet St. Chocolate as group gift for September, a gorgeous earthy dress for the autumn.

Joeylin has such a wonderful touch with the textures.  The gold filigree about the shoulders and the lace at the midriff and hem are just the perfect fine detail.

Feuilles necklace and earrings from EarthStones is a perfect golden complement to this lovely dress.

Paisley Daisy has long had some amazing designs, I’m so glad that they’ve been expanding into fitmesh.  I’m feeling almost ready for the leaves to fall from the trees!
Almost.
