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 it’s… Mayden Couture!

Happy Easter everyone!!! ^^
I hope everybody’s having loadsa fun in all the fabulous hunts in world — there’s some really pretty gifts to add to your bursting inventory!

I was surprised to log inworld the other day only to receive this gorgeous full pack of skin from Mayden Couture. I can only return the generous gesture by blogging about it and showing you guys how beautiful it is. Lilith is a new skin from Mayden Couture, it comes in 2 different skin tones (I have the lighter one) and 10 different make up options.

ohmai it's... Mayden Couture II

The skin of Lilith is rather tanned (both options) and the shading of the face is more defined as compared to the body. In fact, I do think the body is on the matte side, however the shadows and highlights are mostly done around the areas that will be exposed during normal wear — like the legs and chest area are very well shaded.

I love the legs of this skin, the knees especially are so cute and well shaded — very realistic looking and extremely believable. There’s a really cute tush as well, which is something lots of people like when obtaining skins. One area that I’m not very fond of is the collar bones — although the chest area is very well shaded, the collarbone is a slight bit too over shaded, making the bones protrude a little too obviously than I would like. So that’s my only critique on this skin; aside from that — the face is obvious LOVE! I think the face of this skin is excellently done, with thick eye makeup and luscious lips. I have a weak spot for well shaded lips and this skin definitely won my heart over in that aspect.

ohmai it's... Mayden Couture IV

The above shows the variety of makeup Lilith comes in. The lips are all fairly glossy but comes in a range from nude to deep red. There’s a small beauty mark that adds character to this skin. The eye makeup are all very glamorous looking, but one thing you’d notice that’s similar in all the makeup options is the highlights around the eye area and the inner corners of the eyes. This is a huge love for me, I really think this skin range is not for those fond of natural looking makeup — it’s definitely more for those who like to experiment with different make up options.

ohmai it's... Mayden Couture III

The most variety comes in the eye makeup. I took a close capture to show you guys the different colors there are to choose from. All the eye makeup features highlighting around the inner corners and deep eyeliner and eyeshadow.
I’m not 100% sure that the colors below are what the make up options are, I’m just stating them based on how I see them. So feel free to correct me if I made a mistake and I’ll gladly rectify.

N1: Nude lips and eye makeup just consist of thick eyeliner and mascara.
N2: Slightly pink lips, orange eyeshadow used on the upper lids, whereas the bottom rim is lined with a steel blue shade.
N3: Deep brownish tone for the lip stick, and the eye makeup consist of deep green hues and slight gold around the edges.
N4: Deep pink lips, eye shadows are brown hued with pearl gold highlights.
N5: Red lips and eye makeup consist of silver and white shades for an icy look.
N6: Vermilion colored lips with brown eyeshadow.
N7: Nude lips with steel blue eyeshadow on upper lid and persian green on the bottom rim.
N8: Bright pink lips, thicker eyeliner with light bits of grey around the inner corners.
N9: Nude lips with aquamarine eyeshadow on upper lids and darker aquamarine on the bottom rim.
N10: Nude lips with light sea green eyeshadow and a lighter shade lining the bottom rim.

Once again, thank you to Mayden Couture for giving me the chance to blog about this skin! So why are you still reading this??? Head over on your easter weekend to check out this gorgeous skin!
