blooming in skin fair~

Skins are a major love of mine and I was so glad this weekend was the very awesome Skin & Shape Fair; *wiggles* There were tons of skin and shape stores setting up awesome stuff and there was 2 skins in particular that really grabbed my interest ❤

Blooming in Skin Fair I

First of course is Pink Fuel‘s Skye which i absolutely hearts to death! Skye is extremely feminine and soft in features and totally makes me look super girly which I love ❤ The makeup options are endless and I choose to feature my favorite from her line called “Beestung“. Beestung has glossy reddish lips and a very subtle eyeshadow and is perfect to wear in any occasion in my opinion. The features are very much modified from her previous release and this time fits my shape like a glove~ I really like the youthful shape of every feature in her skin and all of you really should hop over and give Skye a demo because it truly is a skin you must have!

Blooming in Skin Fair II

The next skin that caught my eye was Milk Motion‘s Colette! I’ve always had a fascination for drawn tooth in skins, I think it adds such a character but I’ve always looked extremely bunny like in most. In fact this skin does make me look very bunny like at certain angles but I loved it too much to give it a pass. If you’re a fan of unique skins, this one definitely is the way to go~ There’s beauty marks in subtle areas of the body and a face that just melts your heart. I particularly loved Ice1 and Cute2 but featured Cute2 in this post as it has the most unique makeup I’ve ever seen on the grid. I love love love and if you’re brave enough to give this skin a try, be sure to grab demos and you might be surprised by how it looks on your shape 😉

ohmai spin on muism~

This weekend is just a frenzy of excitement for all you guys, of course there’s the very amazing Skin & Shape Fair which I will definitely 100% cover as the days go by because I’ve got demos but can never go back in because the sim is always full tsp… proves how amazing it really is though~ Andddd… another super exciting event is Muism’s 2nd Anniversary Sale!

Muism has been around the grid for over 2 years now and as a token of appreciation to their customers, they have decided to hold their first ever sale (and might I add a HUGE one) today, Sept 26th.
Items are discounted at a rate of 30%-50% which is amazing! Items not included in the sale are Poses and items not made by Migi Voom or Icemocolo Voom.
*Deadline for Sale is not posted which means, get them fast cause you’ll never know when it ends!

I’ve been honored to be asked by Muism to feature some of their sale items out and I’ve decided to say a big thank you to the Muism staff by showing you guys some looks I’ve created for their items. I have actually never been to Muism before because I suck like that and I’m so glad to be invited to take a look around the sim and cover their sale. I also established a lil challenge for myself and I hope the challenge can be explained through the pictures below… lots of first for me this time; first time blogging Muism, first time blogging using a male avatar (Yes, dear Elliot is finally introduced to the family, say HI!), first time mixing several “me’s” in a picture… first time using actual background scenes… first time… well you know the list goes on and on and on. It’s been so terribly fun coming up with these looks (17 in total!) and these pictures and I really cross my fingers you guys like them enough to head down over to Muism!

So here goes nothing!
I’ll be featuring pieces from the sale in several different settings! ^^

First up, lets just say Fall is creeping up the corners and as much as i’m super gleeful Mr. Sun is gonna stop scorching me, I know tons of you are gonna miss the Beach. Specially my fellow Californians~ So in homage to that I decided to bask in the sun one final time with Muism’s gorgeous swim wear and get some tan to last me through fall 😉 I must say, ever since I came into SL there has been much debate about how bad/good body oil and body glitter etc is on one’s av~ I decided to brave the so called extremely “tacky” choice and see how things work. So I dusted tons of glitter and actually really liked the way it worked for this scene.

MUISM summer's end

Muism has a reputation for their coats and jackets but one must not neglect the intricacy in some of their more casual designs such as swim suit. Their Tropic Dress which I’ve decided to feature in 2 different shades is one of my favorite being the print is lovely (who said beach wear has got to = bikini? tsk!) and it even comes with a flex skirt option to turn into a dress. Now that’s something you just gotta have! And as much as Elliot looks pretty darn bug in Muism’s amazing Board Shorts, I believe this Yellow Bead Embellished Bikini seriously stole the show. Gotta love soaking as much sun as possible!

And next up, what better way to live the glamorous life than to walk down a red carpet filled with paparazzi and screaming fans eh? Heh, I thought it was gonna be fun making a mini band out of this shoot~ To take some of Muism’s already stunning formals and put a rock and roll twist on it which proves a simpler feat seeing that Muism makes some of the most amazing rocker Jackets! The red carpet inspiration was definitely from all the crazy award shows we’ve been having lately in rl from the VMAs to the Emmys.

MUISM Red Carpet Event

MUISM Red Carpet Event B

The girl in the centerstage wears a lovely Lace Chiffon Dress that was initially a floor length formal but I added my own spin on it by shortening the length and making it into a mini dress. This is a great way to make some dresses for yours change form and style~

Finally the final set comes from my quirky mind with a lil help from my rl roommate. I wanted a great wey to show off the coats and jackets Muism have but wasn’t quite sure what sort of scene to do. Immediately my roommate offered, picture them in an art gallery, sipping on champagne and being all fabulous. Well obviously there’s no champagne involved nor are they the most fabulous bunch, definitely will catch your eye though 😉

MUISM Art Gallery

MUISM Art Gallery B

So these 2 shots features a group of kids who in my mind are either history or art majors; eccentric and quirky, each with their own unique sense of style. I wanted to make them each as eclectic as possible yet being able to seemingly blend into the picture a if they’re posing for a group shot~ So I hope I achieved that and that I gave you guys a different perspective to see Muism from. Muism has tons of jackets and coats, but in my mind they’ve been very clean and classic with their vendors. I love that about them, but it might also limit those who might feel awkward with classic traditional apparel; thus in all the looks above I aim to put my own perspective and flair into their clothes.

Soooo… to end things off; I’d like to say a BIG HUGE Thank you to Miaow, a new dear friend of mine actually without her, would have never inspired me to do the looks that I did for Muism. So both me and Mia decided to pose in a few pictures together wearing not just Muism stuff but Muism’s new releases!! *drumrolls* Yes! As if the sale wasn’t mind blowingly awesometastic enough, they got to go release some great stuff to tempt you guys into going over even more!

MUISM Urban Appeal
MUISM Urban Appeal B

The bags me and Mia plus the denim shorts are the new items we both decided to feature. This Massengar bag comes in both male and female versions and even has 3 poses built into it so you could wear it in several ways. The details and textures on it are just gorgeous~ The denim shorts as well have lovely textures! I sense that Muism will be going through a huge overall the next year and their new releases in my opinion just brings their brand to a whole new level. So be on a look out for those new releases to sweep your feet off the ground, they’re really stepping their game up!
*muacks* Once again thank you Mia and I hope you and the rest of the Muism staff would like what I came up with~
If you want closer looks please go straight to flickr and you’ll see the original 1000×1200 size ^^

edging up Church of Luxe

I’m sure some of you have heard about the Church of Luxe sale that’s going on right now — all items (except the new haute bunny ears which are to die for!) are currently going for a mere 50L with fatpacks priced at 250L. Yes, this includes jackets, vests, tunics and of course CoL’s well known dresses. So why not hop on over and take a great look before some of this items get retired after the sale?

Church of Luxe to me has been a brand i associate with feminine prints, a semi vintage appeal and just overall girly dresses that I heart and love. I remember heading over to her store when I was still a sl newbie and just fell in love in all the clothes which kept very close to rl styles. So I decided to come up with a few looks from my favorite pieces from CoL’s massive choices and my intention was to edge up most of the looks, to showcase how versatile these pieces are.

edging up Church of Luxe I

The first look is centered around CoL’s lovely Sam Vest and Gretchen dress in which I turned into a simple cami. I felt very western inspired in this wear and just adore this huge hair by Hair OH! Hair OH has recently opened a new mainstore and carries new hair styles and even lashes so I advise you to drop over and take a lookie around~

edging up Church of Luxe II

The next look comes from Igraine in Yellow; I love how this looks like a usual collared shirt but with the prim turns into a long tunic~ You could pair this with pretty much anything! But I added colored tights to really amph the look up. The hair here is yet another from Hair OH, featuring her latest “oh my boy” hair.

edging up Church of Luxe III

Not only is this Jenna dress one of my fav pieces from CoL, i’ve also been meaning to cover this cardigan from barbee for ages now! I absolutely love the loose draping, the overall casual worn in look of the cardi. I changed the usual Jenna dress into a semi tight tunic, which I thought worked really well into this look.

edging up Church of Luxe IV

Finally, I have this look which is a lil more youthful. I love this Sam vest, it works well in all sortsa looks and a classic piece you should have. In the last 2 looks I’m sporting the latest hair from DP*YumYum which I have been seeing soooo many people sporting. This just means how adorable and awesome these hair are~

Oh! And on another note, the skins I’m wearing in all 4 looks come from fashionably dead! Toast Bard has released a bunch of new make ups and what I love most about these skins are the vivid red lips, some glossy and some matte. Something I crossed my fingers for since the first release of her skins — more red lipstick! So whoohoo! I’m sure you fd skin fans would find at least one makeup that calls out to you because there are just too many to choose from!

So! Now time for me to turn in, I hope you guys enjoyed these~

falling for gatcha~

As I said I’ll be back to cover on the Gatcha festival~ I’m hoping to gear up and start blogging again while resting a little after the mainstore cause I’m kinda drained from creating new things I won’t lie. I have so much ideas but schools just spinning out of control. So i’ll slink back into blogging, something that I love to refresh my inspiration juices a bit. As they say, oil the rusty gears! hee…

So when one thinks of Gatcha the words random, awesome and evil all comes into mind. Exact sentiments from me; this is the first Gatcha festival I’ve ever been too and I’m a big fan of those tiny ol’ machines where you just don’t know what sorta goodies you’re gonna get. The idea of that surprise in box, or prim, in our case — is just endearingly evil. You see your lindens slowly slip away but look on the bright side, you probably have tons of new goodies and even some transferable ones for friends!

This time round I spotted lots of gorgeous prints and textures running around in the gatcha prizes. So I decided to do a few looks inspired by the next season that’s slowly creeping back into LA. Sorry summer, but fall is really much much muchhhh better. When I think fall fashion, i think warm, cosy, lots of reds, browns, oranges and maybe a tinge of green leftover. I think textures and prints! Which falls together with the items from gatcha very very well.

The first, no well both looks feature my favorite piece from this year’s festival — Elate‘s Elise dress! I love the girly youthful shape with the vintage florals which are oh so so feminine. I paired them up with a tweed jacket from DP*YumYum which isn’t gatcha but so appropriate for fall; a piece you can wear over and over again and just never gets boring. The accessories in this look mostly came from Gatcha and I especially wanna give special love to PIDIDDLE‘s broach and head pieces which are so pretty! I kept spinning trying to get tanks but alas, lady luck wasn’t on my side this time round. Luckily I have plenty of accessories from my hard work~

falling for gatcha~ I

The next look is really mostly gatcha love! The turtle sleeveless top comes from couverture, a special rare item you get if you spin endlessly like I did just to get a specific color of their tights. I loved these socks from sen*2 and scarf from LOULOU&CO. as well~ I find it so incredible how designers are putting out some very similar colors for the upcoming season which proves which colors are on the buzz lately. These adorable candy from TEKUTEKU comes with cheek blushing as well, hence the flushed look on my face. Which by the way goes incredibly well with the lip makeup of vive9‘s Po — my new favorite skin thus far from Blu! BeetleBones also finally finished her gatcha after several probing and annoying on my part. You’ll find these adorable heels over at her gatcha stand, tons of colors to get and the style is just too adorable for words!
