It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post on an outfit from Rowena’s Designs!  I haven’t been there for a little while until something caught my attention on the SLF&O group chat the other day.  I’m glad I went because I picked up this gorgeous little dress that comes with a six color HUD too!

The mesh is really well done, and it comes in standard mesh sizes, plus fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Hourglass, Physique, Maitreya, and TMP.

Rowena Springflower has long been one of my favourite designers.  In a world of exorbitantly priced single-colour/texture items and fatpacks for a very modest discount,  Rowena has long featured lovely mesh with included texture-selection HUDs for a reasonable price.     

You may know that I rarely wear high feet/heels, but these coordinating heels are really quite lovely.

on a midsummer’s night

“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

This lovely little mesh outfit is offered as a group gift at Rowena’s Designs.  The Fairy Dress is a mesh outfit including wings, and has a five-colour HUD to fit your tastes.  The top, skirt, and wings are rigged as a single piece, and cannot be worn independently.

The wings are static and unscripted, but have a beautiful semi-transparent texture.  They, too, have colour-change options that subtly tint the multicolour iridescent texture.  The lovely Forest Edge mask from Spyralle has a HUD for six different leaf colours and four stem colours!

Stop by Rowena’s Designs and pick up The Fairy Dress, and take a look around at all the other pretties!

“Know but this and all is mended.
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear,
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding, but a dream.”

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

A thousand nights and a night

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a lovely exclusive for you at We Love Role Play this month: the beautiful Song of Shaherazade.

Song of Shaherazade is a single-piece mesh available in in fitmesh for SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara only.

Shaherazad is available in six lovely colours — black, blue, green, purple, white and red.  Bee’s texturing is just amazing: I love the hip scarf and the the coin detail on the top.

I think I’ve blogged the Alae Atrae neckpiece from Rowena’s Designs before: it’s a beautiful neckpiece featuring an ankh and spine-wing motif, with a colour selection HUD.

Song of Shaherazade is a lovely outfit with a Indian/middle-eastern period feel, but it’s only around this month!  Stop by We Love Role Play and take a look today!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

This gown was a group gift (or perhaps it was on a midnight mania board) at Rowena’s Designs some time ago.  It uses a pretty well worn mesh from Meli Imako, but this version is rather nice for the textures and use of materials.

It comes in standard rigged sizes, and fitmesh for classic, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.  The HUD has six textures, four more of which I’ve shown you below.

Like most full mesh gowns, dancing in this leaves a little to be desired.  I’d recommend slow ballroom only in this 🙂

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.

To seek out new life, and new civilisations…

I’m so happy to announce that I’m now an official blogger for Eclectic Stars!  Jadziyah has a wonderful sense of style for all the nerds out there of every stripe!   Let me share with you a great example of her work — Shifty — and maybe stir up a little controversy!

Rowena Springlower’s Tanith boot is the perfect fit to complement this outfit, and comes with a fantastic colour HUD!

Hmmm… now, how did that happen?  Let me check my code….

shifty_c002

As you might expect, Shifty is available in three colours: blue, red, and gold for science, engineering, and command.  Hmm, tricorders have gotten smaller over the years… who could have guessed?
shifty_c008

Wait, what controversy?  Jadziyah named each outfit for the colour scheme on the new series – where command is red and engineering is gold.  In the original 1966 series, gold was for command, and red for engineering and security!  I’ve seen angry fights break out over this that make some sporting rivalries look tame!  And yes, blue was science in all series.

shifty_c006

Whichever side of the controversy you’re on, you’ll love Shifty.  It’s available in fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Physique bodies, as well as the standard five mesh sizes.    Beam on over to Eclectic Stars and see what other fab things there are for you to find!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Dangerous

There’s no other word for it.

Just dangerous.

Dangerous_ce005

Carrie’s Lingerie brings us Dangerous, a catsuit/bodysuit in Omega appliers and mesh, with five standard sizes plus fitmesh for Slink Physique and Hourglass.  Dangerous comes in six mouth-watering colours, and is available in the Carrie’s VIP section now!

I’ve complemented Dangerous with some jewelry from Rowena’s Designs.  The necklace and ear cuffs both feature colour-change HUDs with a choice of five different lovely hues.

The open back is perfect for framing my favourite tat.

Can you believe Blue lent me the keys?  When it comes to parallel parking… I’m clearly.. Dangerous.

Reindeer games

As my grandfather used to say – “Ohh, hello dere”.

I find myself in a colder north than I’m used to this year, and even so it’s a warmer winter then they are used to.  Fortunately, deer are ready for the cold.

Catseye-Reindeer_011

Catty Catseye brings us a variant of her new Faun avatar components: a reindeer!  (We’ll review the faun separately later)
The reindeer has components for the standard SL avatar, plus hooves for Slink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza, Solarian, Hella and Kemono avatar components.  WOW!

Catseye-Reindeer_009

The reindeer features hooves, antlers, ears, a jinglebell collar, and a cute scripted tail!

Catseye-Reindeer_001Rowena Springflower’s Kelly skirt and top may not be the most ideal clothing choices for the cold winter snow, but they sure do show off the legs and tail of this lovely reindeer avi.  The all-mesh Kelly is a year or so old, but is a lovely treat for summer days, so far away from now – and features Rowena’s colour-change HUD.

Catseye-Reindeer_003

A wise person once told me that if you carry your own joy with you in your heart, you will find it wherever you look.  That may be so, I know I carry Blue in my heart wherever I wander.  But I think you need to carry your light with you, too – even in strands of gaily coloured lights.  Mahalo to my sister Ginger for the lovely necklace!

Catseye-Reindeer_005

Catty offers her reindeer in two palettes – the earthy “Holly”, festooned with holly leaves and berries in the antlers, and the regal “Snowflake”, with white fur on the legs and icy white antlers, complete with snowflake adornments.

Catseye-Reindeer_008

My ears perk up – night is falling as deeply as the snow, and it is time to be on.   Mele kalikimaka, maluhia to you all!
