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!

brave in nude~

Not much to say cept imma be narcissistic and incorporate some of my items in this look. Nude colors have lately been creeping up on my style~ Something about nude champagne colors that look extremely soft yet brave as they sometimes make you look as if there’s no clothes on. I decided to overcome that by using textures from the lingerie and odd shapes~

I’m wearing vive9‘s new Maya skin which I love love, heart heart — beyond words! Blu has come a long way since her first big hit in the community. I love how fresh her skins are, incredibly strong skins but so young and chic~ The features of her skins are something I love with my shape cause we share the same love for wide set eyes. Po and Maya her new skins have definitely won my heart over!

Putting on the gold version of my Miss.Thumbelina dress, I decided to add Beetlebones‘ gorgeous nicola dress frilly pieces. I know how much sue slaved over this dress, and I love how I can play with it and just move it about to create different effects in other looks!

In this I’m featuring some fri.day items which I actually have never featured before *gasp* I’m sure most of you have heard about fri.day, not only their high quality basics but also that huge sale they had! Lucky for me, I was incredibly out of touch with the news during the period of their opening so I decided to get so much goodies during the sale. My favorite is definitely their hair, fri.day has some amazingly textured hair which looks soft and elegant and classic~ something that rings all throughout the brand.

I also have on Maitreya shoes which are late news but oh how stunning; hands down best sculpted feet when you’re aiming for realism. I wouldn’t normally pair prim feet with stockings but the sheerness of these stockings worked well with the shoes.

my dose of beetlebones

*waveness* I just arrived back in LA and I’m having a bad evil jetlag…so i’m a tad bit buzzed and I might make a lil spelling error or mistakes along this post. In fact I just noticed a picture editing error that I wanna smack myself for 😦 pooness!!

Anywho! I’m missing my sister so much from all the way here in Los Angeles as she’s slaving away in Asia teehee… I do have to congratulate her on a successful collection yet again ❤ Suetabulous Yootz from Beetle Bones finally released her 2nd collection which she deems city chic ~ dedicating to her missed life in LA. I must say the pieces reflect a lot of our favorite things whilst shopping and living in Los Angeles. A lot of the clothes are stylish on their own but also serve as great layering pieces, which fits the unpredictable weather here, sometimes it’s just blazing hot like vegas and sometimes it’s waaayy too cold, so layers serve for easy changes throughout the day.

I decided to take some essential pieces from Beetle Bones‘ city chic collection and layered it with different pieces from other designers to show off this lines great versatility! I also made sure each look features a different color of Suetabulous adorable “I Skinned an Ostrich Bag” (lols at the name). This bag has a cute hand drawn textures which shows Sue’s great improvement since her first line, and even has a small lil sculpted bone as a brand keychain. I love her attention to detail and this bag really is one to keep as it goes well with any look.

my dose of beetlebones I

The first look I kept simple and easy, something casual that works for daily wear where you don’t want to fuss around a lot. Using Beetle Bones’ Skinny Lowriser Jeans and Laboheme top, I paired it with Gigi Couture‘s adorable plaid sweater. I love these jeans from Beetle Bones as her attention to details yet again show in the backpockets where we see a lil sewn in bone.

Next up is a look I love and hearts! I took Sue’s adorable Michelle dress which features a high pencil skirt and a detailed corseted top — the details on the top of this dress is so cute, but I wanted to make this more unpredictable by layering it with her jailbird sweater and Madsy’s xoxo Cardigan. I have featured Madsy in my early posts but I’d just like to highlight what an incredibly amazing new and upcoming brand! I love her originality in all her pieces and they really are must haves! This look is more feminine which works well if you’re going out on a date of some sorts or days when you just wish to look your lady like best!

Finally, the last look is something more spunky and fun, with bright colors and cute hair, this look is great for a fun day out! Using this Jailbird sweater yet again, I loveeee this piece and is definitely my favorite from Sue’s collection. I worked it with her skinny jeans again but in a different shade, and layered this with Pink OutfittersEsme Sweater Vest which makes for a cool look.

ohmai… it’s KAO!

Heh… joke of the day. Zephy was talking to me via skype and we were talking about second life addictions and she casually mentioned that if one day we had a second life convention and we were to go together, we should both dress up in total grey and if someone asked why, we’d both go “we’re still rezzing” XD heh…
OMGOSH XD LACK… OF… SLEEP… *inserts random rambles*

*ahem* What better than a pretty skin pack to keep ones inspiration juices flowing ^^ I love reviewing skins and they’re a big job that I love doing with great care and detail. I’m not too big on mixing and matching lately, so I shall keep the look simple! KAO SKINS has released a new line of skin called Erika — there’s only one skin tone so far but with 6 different make up options. Each makeup costs 1000L and there’s no fatpack available. Each makeup will consist of 4 different versions as shown. One that’s normal, one with lighter/less brows, one with thicker and fuller lashes and finally the last one a mix of fuller lashes with lighter/less brows. It will also come with an eyebrow shape (extremely crucial for this skin’s character I believe) and a shape ^^

Another thing I’d like for all of you to note are the eyes ~~ I got sent these eyes to review and I lurve how nedeko has completely outdone herself! Some of you would know nedeko for being a smart photographer on flickr and a great shape maker inworld. She has been trying to dabble in other aspects of content creation and have made several interesting things in her store that you guys should check out! These eyes are her hard work and originality. I love the vibrant shades and how they just pop in my photos. I hope you guys will go and take a look at her beautiful eyes over at Bodyline!

ohmai… it’s KAO! I

I believe some skins beauty lies in their details of subtle realism and I love noticing them as I review and edit the pictures in photoshop. Erika makes me look like a spunky more naughty version compared to my usual self — I love the attitude the skin brings. The body is not the most heavily shaded skin, and that gives it a very realistic flesh like quality. I love how the shading is extremely subtle but at the crucial places and how well the shading of the face matches the body. The cleavage is extremely full and the stomach is toned but femininely done. I love how the collarbone looks soft and not overly protruding. Plus, my favorite part about the body of this skin lies in the knees and behind the knees. I love the subtle darker pink hue on these areas — it’s a little detail that makes the skin look more natural and charming. For me, I think the body is perfect in the style the artist likes to portray — nothing negative for me to say about it ^^

ohmai… it’s KAO! II

I took and extremely close up view of the face — but it really fails to look as good as it did in world. The highlighting of the faces really appear more luminescent in world and I hope you guys get the demo to see it. Especially the nose area — I love how well done the nose is, the way it has a very distinct shading and shape. I have added eyelashes in this picture, which makes the eye lashes look fuller, but there are drawn in lashes in this skin; and very well done I might add. One thing I didn’t like about this skin much is the lack of definition in the eyebrow. I prefer eyebrows that have definition to the tiny wisps of hair in it, so I can actually see the “hair” texture. This one seems a little rough. However the rest of the eye I love, the subtle detail of the enhanced eye bag makes it so natural. The lips look as if a thin swipe of gloss has been applied, I feel like the colors used on all the makeup is very fruity and fresh for the summer. This one in particular is the red lips makeup which is by far my favorite.

As each make up comes with 4 versions like I mentioned before. I will show you guys pictures of all 4 versions you will get per make up option. I only bought 3 of them so the final 3 on the bottom are the 3 makeups I did not get in the “more lashes” option.

ohmai… it’s KAO! III


Red lips makeup
obviously showcases the reddest lips, from what I see the eyeshadow in this makeup is done with orangey and brown tones. Very natural glossy red lips. I love how fresh this is and the red lips is done is a very young way that doesn’t make one look old.

Rose makeup is yet another one I love! The eyeshadow is done in duller tons of pinks and purple – I believe the colors shown here are the most feminine of the bunch. The other colors are extremely bright and spunky, this one attempts to be a little more elegant. THe lips are a deep pink shade.

Yellow makeup is interesting to me, it features the very difficult yellow and orange to be the eyeshadow — yet making it look natural and not overdone. I love the pairing of the eyeshadow with peachy glossy lips. This i feel is the perfect beach makeup to put on; very brave colors without catching too much weird attention.

Natural lips is the most basic version of this Erika skin. Lightly done eyeshadow in tones of pink and brown. The lips are done in a natural flesh color, and everything looks very basic and clean.

Pink lips is exactly like natural lips — the eyeshadows are the same color and the feeling of basic freshness is there as well. THe lips however are tinted with a shade of pink for extra cuteness.

Pink makeup is done with darker shades of pink and browns as the eyeshadow. The lips are done in pink as well, but a tad bit darker shade than pink lips to differentiate them. Pink makeup is like a more made up look as compared to pink lips naturalness.

Hope this review gives an insight to this beautiful skin from KAO! *hugs to everyone*
