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~

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!

boyish touches

Suetabulous Yootz from beetlebones recently found a little hair store that I’ve never been to before, only upon arriving did I remember that Newreem Waffle posted this store within her blog a while ago ^^. Finding a new store always makes me squee, especially one which such adorable hair such as Hair [OH]! Another awesome find within this store is their prim cheek blush that I’ve been sporting a lot in world lately, gotta ❤ that it’s a freebie!

Boyish Touches I

I decided to do 2 rather casual looks around the hair and also featuring some lovely stores I haven’t yet have the chance to. The first look is a rather quirky look that borders on being rather boyish. It’s because I’m sporting this adorable v neck shirt from NU i which features mainly casual menswear. I love the little folds and details in each and every one of NU i’s clothes and it really does show that basics can be made so classic just by the amount of dedication one shows in them. I paired this shirt up with Gigi Couture‘s cowboy vest which comes in several wearing options and also THE DOG‘s scarf which I <3<3<3.

Boyish Touches II

The next look still is rather tom boy which i guess has been my mood recently hee, but I made it a tad bit feminine with beige and peach hues. I’m loving the ruffle detail on this vest which is made by none other than Tomoyo Breitman a fellow resident blogger. Tomoyo has been dabbling with poses for a while now and recently moved onto adorable clothes such as this ruffled vest. Her store MayoNaise will be coming up reallllyyy soon, so be on a big lookout for that! I paired this lovely vest with simple denim shorts from oyakin and adorable boots. To make it more interesting, I accessorized this look with gisele‘s gorgeous necklace which comes top in my favorites list for jewelry!

Boyish Touches III

I’m terribly excited for Hair [OH] and I can’t wait to see what other sort of hair creations she comes up with! So why not pay this lil store and visit and come out with some lovely new hair do to run about with in world? 🙂

ohmai teasers~

Boo! It’s been a huge long while… and this place has been growing way too much cobwebs lol… but hiiee i’m back, I might not be fully active till August 20th cause internet is evil where I am, but I’ll try my best!

Remember the last time I left, I said i’ll be content creating for a bit, and I have! I’ve been working my butt off the entire month and got a few (not a lot) of completed stuff, but it’s still not available just yet. I’m currently awaiting to set up store in Horst and I’ll be keeping you guys updated on that ^^ Hopefully by mid or end August, it’ll be there…

Right now though… as teasers, I’m releasing my Hamilton Military in 4 colors over at Chance’s shop DARE. This military inspired bolero comes in puffy sleeves which will occur in many pieces throughout my collection. There’s a total of 10 colors, but I’m releasing my favorite 4 for you guys.

Chance is also holding a sale for all his clothes, everything now goes for a mere cheap price of 10L! All the pieces will be retired after this sale.
Get a Taxi
So, I hope you drop on by and I hope you like what I’ve made so far. The military jackets are where the entrance is in case you missed it XD

I’ve missed u guys tons and tons~ Hope to be blogging more!!

dare you do that?

*waves hi from Singapore*
hi!! So my reason for being slightly absent is that I’ve recently landed back in Singapore, a place I grew up in and as much as I’m glad to see home again, the internet here is horribly slow. I lag like crazy and I’ve never had so much crashes while blogging outfits before so… poo… poo… and more poo!!

*ahem* Anywho, I wanted to share some stuff with you guys. Chance Greatrex has grown so much since I first met and spoke with him inworld — his poses are by far some of the most couture and inspiring ones I’ve seen in sl, and its never a bore spending time with him. I’m sure most of you have already gotten at least one of his poses, but if you haven’t, do drop by DARE to check them out! He recently has a new pose set up which can be seen used by Dolly Ewing. However, some of you might not know that Chance actually dabbled in clothes before making poses and has some extremely beautiful dresses in his store. He is currently holding a sale, dropping the prices of his dresses to nearly 1/2 of it’s original price! I’m crossing my finger that this perfectionist would start creating more gorgeous dresses as I love them so… I loved the dresses on its own, but being a person who loves creating new looks, I decided to take bits and pieces of his dresses and create entirely different looks from them. I hope I did them justice and entice you to visit his store for some of his beautiful dresses~~

dare you do that I

The first look is a little more elegant and couture than what I normally would wear, but I still love it nonetheless. I took the top part of Chance’s Midnight Tango dress and paired it with fourYIP‘s gorgeous black dress pants for something more masculine but still very sexy. What I love most about Midnight Tango is the intricate designs on the sheer front, and how it transitions into a more opaque material at the back~ this dress shows skin without being tacky and extremely sophisticated as all of Chance’s designs.

My short cropped hair (together with the beret) comes from kik — a hair store that I’m so glad to find. I love the hair selection they have there and kik even carries full avatars complete with clothes which some of you might love.
I’m also sporting this brand new skin from ATOMIC; which comes in a variety of skin tone and is such a big improvement from their older skins. I have always loved the faces on ATOMIC skins but find their blushing a little too harsh for my taste — this new line however, is much softer in terms of blushing and has one of the most incredibly drawn bodies I’ve seen in quite some time. Look at that lip! These are early releases before the rest of the make up lines come out, and I must say this red lip is my favorite~

dare you do that III
dare you do that IV

Next, I decided to do something more casual and cute which fits my usual style more. I took Chance’s Golden Retro dress and paired it with a different top from G Field to produce something a little more girly and summer like. I love yellow but it’s always a very hard color to match~ so i’m crossing my fingers that I matched this well… If you’ve never stepped foot in G Field, you’re missing out on some of the most well sculpted flower pieces in sl. Flowers have been all the craze in world lately and if you’re still jumping on that bandwagon, head over to G Field for some flower jewelry, dresses and even shoes! ❤ them…

The hair I’m wearing is a freebie from noju, a brand new girly Japanese store. They don’t have a lot up yet since they’re so new but they do have a freebie dress and this hair up for grabs which I’m sure you’d love! Those tights are also from a brand that recently reopened over at the new Starlust sim, Ty Zvezda carries some great dresses in the most vibrant and brave colors. If you’re a big fan of colors… you won’t be disappointed at Ty Zvezda!

The skin here is yet another make up option from ATOMIC‘s new skin. I normally don’t take pictures showing my chin because it often doesn’t have the right shading to take such an angle… this skin however has slight shading on the chin area, and I love little details like that. I’m also wearing the freckled option, which as you can see has subtle freckles around the body as well — another detail that I love and heart!

I hope you guys enjoyed these looks and be sure to head down to DARE for some gorgeous dresses which are for sale!! These dresses might not be available once Chance creates more poses to fill his store; so don’t miss out and grab some of your favorites!

the black widow

The Black Widow; not referring to the comic book character nor the animal itself — just the words that leaves me with a myriad of emotion and thought I can’t quite describe. I’ve been feeling rather complicated myself in real life, and this indescribable complication I hope can be seen through my looks and my pictures.

When Gyorgyna Larnia from LaGyo dropped me her latest collection, I was most pulled towards this particular piece; I have spoken before of her incredible talents in sl jewelry making — I’d just like to say that her newest collection is just incredibly dark but still so romantic. This dress comes from Cat Creations, a store that i’m so thankful to be tipped off about. I love this spider web dress the most and decided to mix it together with this head piece to recreate a look evoking my idea of the Black Widow.

I never really wore something quite as dark before and was surprised at the result; the black widow represents how I feel right now, emotionally in real life, so this will be little words — letting the pictures do the talking.

toothpick cranes

You know how tons of people were feeling rather low and uninspired lately? Well amazingly today when I checked the feeds — I see tons of really inspiring goodness and it’s awesome that people are getting their groove back 😉 So for those who haven’t — we’re waiting for ya to jump on the bandwagon! We’re patient!!
As for me, I’m trying to catch up with the stuff I’ve been meaning to blog about but haven’t! I’m not really good with keeping up with the latest and newest stuff; so poo imma sloww…

Just wanted to do a lil casual quirky piece with some stuff that I’ve been accumulating. I lurve glitter hair and I’m so pleasantly surprised with their new textures. Glitter has always had great styles but the latest ones have been femininely adorable, I love! The sad thing is, I never like their blondes, it has always been too ashy for me *sad face* so I had to go with my 2nd choice of being a red head! I still love though~

This dress is one from KiiTos, a store I loved for poses but recently their new dresses have been leaving me in squees! This dress has gorgeous prints and this one plus another dotted blue one was my favorite from the lot. I decided to pair the dress up with this great shirt I found in curiosity. I’m featuring curiosity twice now, but they truly are an amazing store. They recenly released a new group gift that’s a casual grey sweater — a staple for both men and women!

See those lovely lace tights? My dear friend Chance Greatrex from DARE has brand new stockings out for sale! Great colors all laid out in a circle for you to have a hell of a time picking! Teehee… I really love it’s intricate designs and I know I can’t wait to see more clothes and poses from him. Oh! Finally these fringe boots are from the little store called Usagui ~ They have some high quality furniture for sale — but I also love the clothes they have laying around in their little field! So do give them some love and check it out ^^

Just a short little write up today…
I’ve been dabbling with making stuff and just recently made a short little tank top ^^ squee~ I’m still trying to find my style and getting used to the seams and such! But that might explain my lil slow-nicity~

red balloon

Yayyyeee~~ Didn’t expect me back so soonnn?? Hee… I’ve been playing about with my inventory a lot since I’ve finally gotten nearly everything sorted out by brand whoohoo! Serves for easy land marking purposes! So, I have no clue why I named this red balloon, but I was playing word association in my own dorky lil mind and thought of that when I looked at those fabulous glasses!

I finally got a chance to use my Paper Couture huge flower yay!! And this adorable Whippet&Buck tailored shorts that I lurve lurve. Everything else is really a big huge random mix of tid bits and goodies. I love the little bow necklace from fabulous which I’m sure tons of you have been to before! Dango is one of the most amazing creator within second life and I’m sure many fashionistas agree. She has 2 new hair releases in DEJAVU that I would probably show case soon and that everyone should go mad rush in and get *winks*

Keeping this short and sweet! Hope you like!
(I’m utterly amused by the poses I picked but they are fabbb~)
