My Attic @ The Deck is doing its next session starting tomorrow, so I have been buzzing around, and decided to step back and get some much needed blogging done.
I love winter fashion, and with the theme of this months Collabor88 taking that to delicious heights, I am even more so. With it being summer down here though, it can be very hard to watch yourself in layers, while the fan is trying to stop you from melting. While I have only been sledding once, and by once, I actually mean one time once, one go down the hill and that was enough for me – we wont even mention that the hill was about 5ft high, I am way too girly and accident prone for such daredevil feats. But a sled such as this one by Cheeky Pea @ Collabor88, was definitely a must have wall adornment, and you never know, I may just take it for a spin in SL where I can’t hurt myself. It actually has a vehicle script inside of it, with some charming animations, so make sure you get some for fun with friends.
The other item in my scene – also from collabor88, is the corduroy club chair by Trompe Loeil. There are so many things to love about corduroy, and when the fabric is used as home decor, it is definitely all win. It is such a sturdy fabric, but really has a softness, and comfortable feeling to it, the more you use it the better it gets. The chair is available in many great colours, and there is also a matching love seat – two seater sofa – to be picked up also.
Yesterday I was all over the place, running to and fro. The first trip was with Anessa, we went to get her a new AO, and I took her over to MrSigmunds…and of course ended up buying five new ones for myself, as well as some pose sets. Then later on that day, I ran over there with Siddean and Whimsy. The poses I am using are from that spree, and I always unpack my AO’s and throw them in my VR Studio as well, they always make for such great pics when you slow your animations – Develop Menu > Avatar > Slow Motion Animations.
Other great items from Collabor88 are the jewellery pieces I am wearing by Yummy. There is an oversized ring that is just gorgeous, I did have to swap hand attachments though, but it was easy. A necklace and earrings (not shown) complete the set, and they are available in three different metal types. The clothing is the collar dress by Fashionably Dead, and I just adore the buttons, which work really well at matching the amazing spat boots by Schadenfreude.
The Leith boot goes all out, not only do you get them with a HUD that allows for all sorts of customisation to the 5 colours, but you also get the spats as a separate option, the shoes as a separate option, and mens sizes. This is called knowing your customer base, and I really love that she has the mens sizes, because if a man can’t wear fabulous thigh high boots in Second Life, what the hell is the point.
The hair I am wearing is one of the recent releases by Exile, this hair is a hat/hair combination, and for those that have read my blog at all over the years, know that this is my love love. I adore hat/hair because when done right, it is just wonderful to wear. This is of course one of three, and the beret is texture change, and just so adorable a look, especially with the outfit combination I think.
Lastly, the skin. Now before I go into detail, the Glance store just this morning removed their 1L demo pricing, so if you have been hesitating in the past, get on over there – I know many have a thing about that. The Lana skin is just beautiful, the nose is my favourite part of the skin, the way its shaded, the highlights, the detailing all just works great on my shape. The mouth is also fabulous, and it comes in three tones, with brow options – there is actually a red brow that perfectly matched this hair, but as I so obviously dye my SL hair, I kept to the dark brows. Cleavage options, as well as no brows, so you can wear your own brow tattoos, and there are eyeshadow, lipgloss and matte lips to buy as add on packs. So Demo Demo Demo everything.
