make us over

I’ve been meaning to make this post for quite some time but rl has been wayyyyy crazeh!

I’m sure tons of you have heard about the Make Him Over Hunt that’s going on from June 1st till June 30th! This hunt is dedicated thoroughly for the male population in sl which means a great time to drag your boyfriend for a make over or for male fashionistas all around to go crazy with gifts! Tarsis Gausman contact me the other day and asked if I could do a little cover on this hunt and I was already planning to so I gladly agreed to help promote this ^^

Female Fashionistas out there who love hunting would be glad to know there’s tons of unisexual gifts in this hunt and tons of clothes that can be modified to fit our female shapes. I personally took a few of my favorite items from the hunt and made 2 looks — hope it inspires some of you to check out the goodies available!

I’m also taking the time to use my 2 favorite skins from UGLYDOROTHY as Sopha has recently opened a new main store and I’m so proud of the job well done in building the store right from scratch!

(Ah!! I forgot to edit the right most picture where the jacket cuts into the bag… doh~)
The first look is described as “Little Boy Going to get Groceries” by Tomoyo *giggles* I decided to wear this adorable shirt from iPop — this store carries some of the most creative t-shirts i’ve seen in sl lately. I love the clean and crisp designs to match their creativity. Definitely a very unisexual tee — and I thought it’d be cute for a girl to wear a fake tie heh. I matched it with this pair of shorts from BALACLAVA which now comes in several colors but this black one is specially for the hunt. My love for this store is apparent specially with the number of times I’ve been seen wearing their pieces (and they’re a menswear store!) I wanted to dress this look up with a jacket from AOHARU (not from the hunt), since I never seem to have worn their jackets before and AOHARU does make some of the best jackets in sl.

I love the hair of this look — a short male cut together with the hat comes from Bryce Designs — I decided to add extensions from Novocaine which gave it a more feminine touch. This adorable bag from CHABINNS has been seen in several blogs now, but it’s just too adorable to not pimp out once again. I love it’s open and close open but open is really the only way to go with such gorgeous details!

The next look is due to my lurve for this cardigan from A:S:S!!! It was a little too realistic for my taste, but when I took photos of it, the folds really work adorably with the poses. I think the shade is great for unisexual wear as well — don’t deny me my cardigans! Teehee… Whippet & Buck never fails to surprise me again with the high quality work churned out from that store. I love the Marine theme gift they gave out but only chose to wear the pants. I pulled it up and tried to make the pants look like half leggings as well — just to show you how detailed this brand is with their clothes. Look at the little stitches that would normally be covered by the prim part! So cute….

I believe mens wear in sl are really great in quality as there’s such a small niche pool. It’s been a joy to participate in this hunt and I found so many great stores I’d normally never see since they’re mostly menswear… I hope you guys enjoyed these looks and why not drop by to participate in this hunt — or drag your man to get some great new gear!

oh hai~

Oh hai ~~
embarrassing post alert!
So i’ve been talking about making clothes and uhh, just a short lil post to show you guys my first ever creation O_O pardon me if it looks crapaholics.

oh hai~

So yeah — no it’s not those amazing undies from BALACLAVA~ I just used it to cover my bits and attempt to pretty up what I did hee… But I made those *points* tanks. They’re a little short cause I’m still practicing my seaming, wanted to make something basic and simple ^^ as practice.

These are something i made dedicated to my all time favorite blogger’s rez day UMA! For being the first fashion blog I ever read in sl, for being inspiring to so many of us out there, and for keeping strong no matter what drama hits her way and for having the most adorable new puppeh!! Heh, so in honor of her, i sewn on a little tag at the back of the tag that says “UMA”. I’m just apologetic about it not being any great~~~

Just wanted to show these off because I am proud for finishing something I set out to do and hoping to practice more and be a little better and find a style. I ramble a lot in here partly cause I’m quite embarrassed about this… but tons of my friends in world have been telling me they look decent so I bow and say I’m humbled. Big huge thank yous to Chance for being my mentor throughout this tank making thyme ~ he’s probably the only one that saw it from my black empty shape, to the first fold, to the ribbing to the final piece. Thank yewsss ^^

So yeah, i will head off now… and uh… NOM my KFC *hugs to all*

you look like you need another drink

I lurveeeee this look! Like it’s really all I sum up from this *giggles*
Nylon Outfitters has a bunch of new releases and if you haven’t stopped by to check them out, you’re missing some really awesome stuff! I heart these gradient denim pants and just had all kinda ideas with it. I’m a big fan of jeans in rl but on sl I really seldom buy or wear them at all; because it can be hard to find one that’s interesting and different from the norm. I particularly love the smart gradient colors that still retains denim quality in this pair! Naise~

I’m also wearing a different skin from JM:Mai; this store is definitely a store you need to go to if you have a big liking for asian skins. I have had her demos in my inventory for a long long time but never really sat down to carefully picked the ones I like. Big huge thanks to GG Sideshow for reminding me about this store. I finally sat down to pick my favorites and Devon is definitely one of them! I can’t seem to take off this skin! I’m a huge skin lover and if you read my blog often you’d probably realize it from the numerous skin reviews I do — however, it’s difficult for me to find a skin that I like to wear various times, this one however will be one to stay for a while! Me <3!

you look like you need another drink I
you look like you need another drink II

My title is inspired by this shirt from BLACKNOIR and if you’re a big fan of tees and tanks with amusing messages, you’ll lurveee this store! BLACKNOIR has tons of casual goodies and most of them have really eye catching designs. I was incredibly fascinated and I think I spent quite a long time picking the items I really like. The scarf is a new release from BALACLAVA which I have blogged about before — so excited to see their new releases all the time because not only do they look great on men, we female shoppers get to jump in the bandwagon cause they fit us as well! Great fun designs always~

Another huge lurve is these boots! Yay! Big thanks to Brinksie for providing the sURL to this store cause I’ve been itching to find out where it is! I can’t believe Algernon is in the same sim as mon amie cafe since I’ve been there about a dozen times — whai do I miss great stuff like this! (lol) Love the store, they carry a 10L rainboot that is just plain adorable, go check it out!

I decided to have fun with belts since it’s rare to find awesome ones. The yellow is one from NINIKO‘s pants but the little straps allow you to wear it with other pants as well. NINIKO just recently released a series of menswear that has several awesome stuff and I’m a huge fan of Kae’s creation so you know I’m there during the opening for sure ^^ The second belt is one from reek that most of you would already have heard about from feeds. I never had the chance to wear their stuff and I’m glad I finally do because I lurveee~ Amazing belts and awesome fun tees (even a great skating rink omgah!).

The last few touches in my look includes a beautiful hat from !!WILD O that I read about in Abra’s blog. This store sells a variation of hair and gorgeous hair accessories. The bangles are dropped on me from A&A Fashion and I love how it’s incredibly versatile and can be worn with really any sorta looks — thank you! And that cigar ~ teehee… is a find I found whilst profile stalking some great tableau creators. I love how sometimes I stumble upon a place that I’d probably never ever find if it’s just through walking in sl. Lunar lounge is literally carved out of a moon up in the skies of tableau! How awesome!

So that’s it for me today — had great fun with this look and I hope you enjoyed some of these finds ^^

EDIT: idk opens in 1 day! May 2nd 11am SLT @ here!

 

Yay!!! I have a few things I’d love to show you guys before I head off for a week or two to study for my exams. I won’t be active till May 12th!! *dies* withdrawals~~~~’

By the way — I really wanna thank you guys who’s been reading my blog and actually bearing with all these long posts. I have a hard time reducing the things I say and I’m grateful that all you cuteness are so tolerant!! I think it’s like my 50th day in sL today judging on Malte’s calculation so I just wanted to say it’s been an awesome 50 days!!!! I think my rL has been put on hold for a while and my friends on sL would know since I haven’t had a good nights sleep for days hee (I’m like on sL 70% of my day O_o) It’s all been worth it though, because this has been one of the greatest finds I’ve had in my life. A second chance to “live” again ^^ sL gives me the opportunity to do the things I’d never have the guts to do in real life like wearing brightly colored clothes that people would point and curse me for in rL. I like that no one is prejudiced, no one has their walls up on you based on anything trivial — I might be naive though? So that’s my own thought through my journey in sL, I don’t even know why I’m emo-ing on all of ya’ll right now. I’ve just been receiving compliments in world that people are enjoying the stuff I put out on this blog, so I’m really touched and I just do what I do, go by and hope with full sincerity that you guys would like it. Alright… I’ll just waddle off and move on to looks naow…

For the first look, it’s just simple home wear because that’s where I’ve been hanging out the most recently!! Tomo has recently moved in with me so oh HAI ROOMIE~ And there’s a bunch of awesome neighbors, new and old cheering up the entire Harajuku Box! Drop on by and take a look! We’re always welcoming new neighbors! Do you like mai hair and t-shirt? I know I think they’re too adorable for words and these are little teasers from idk a collaboration between Esme Michigan (from Uncle Wiggily) and Chav Paderborn! I’m an idiot and didn’t note down the name of the update group, but if you profile stalk esme, you’d see the group there and it’s open for JOINS. Join to get invitations for the opening party which you do not want to miss! The undies are adorable aren’t they? They’re technically from the male gender but who says females can’t wear em *whistles* A pair of yellow ones are available as free wearable demos in BALACLAVA. This store is filled with cheap menswear and to see more examples of them, read Stokkie’s little post!

The next look features yet again idk‘s adorable tee that I love dearly. When I’m ready to get pulled out of Hbox and go around — I know it’s time to pull on some casual slouchy pants from Oyakin. I love baggy clothes and this pants comes in versions of tight and loose, long and cropped — so many choices! I love my denims but I never really bring myself to buy any unless it’s true love and interest. My fabulous hair is made by Fae from fishy*strawberry that I’m sure many people are familiar by. What’s surprising is that she just released 3 fabu hair earlier yesterday and they’re her first ever hair release! We can definitely anticipate more to come because all 3 are excellent staples that I know I need to head down and get more! ICARO by far is my favorite style cause it has little scripted ribbons that can change colors, and there’s 2 adorable buns at the back with gorgeous soft wispy texture all round. These poses are also made by my lovely new neighbor Esme Milena! She’s working on more as I type (when she awakes from the lack of SLEEP!!) — they are so adorableezz!!

Finally, I landed my first modeling gig *lmao* Candle a good friend sent me IMs that she’s opening a store called Pretzel Poses and wondered if I could model for her as store displays. I jumped at the chance cause I wanted to try the poses as well and they are wacky fun! There’s a set of mortal combat poses that you definitely need to try! The store officially opens tomorrow, so keep a lookout~ I’m modelling a set of Robo poses so I wanted to wear an outfit that was tight and futuristic. I love how I realize I hardly wear black in any of my post XD
