I am still overwhelmed (in a good way over all the awesome stuff at Collabor88 this round so I wanted to do another post! Most things in this post you can get at this round at Collabor88. I am sitting inside Trompe Loeil’s Cabin that is available at the event, and Trompe Loeil also made this chair and couch in my post. It is very cute and has about a billion pose sits.
I am wearing the Take on me hair by Clawtooth, and I kinda sang the song in my head just now when I typed that. My skin and nails are from Izzie’s for Collabor88 and this Geanna skin is gorgeous as well as the nails. I was super impressed. My shirt is from Nylon Outfitters and I love the lace and the bow in the back which if you look down at my last photo you can see. My heart shaped clock necklace is from Maxi Gossamer and my boots are from Monso. All of what I mentioned you can get at Collabor88, as well as the stockings over the fireplace which are from Commoner.
Yesterday, something wonderful happened.. and do you know what that is? Why Collabor88 came back for another round of exceptional items! Everything that I’m wearing in this post including my scenery (with the exception of my eyes and tights) is from this round of Collabor88′s “Frostbitten”.
This is one of my favorite rounds to date. Everything is of incredibly high quality and beauty. I am wearing the Valerie hair from Wasabi Pills, The crystal earrings from La Gyo. I am wearing the Frostbitten Amberly Skin from Glam Affair as well as the Scarf from Boom, the dress from Ingenue and the boots from Hucci. The standing poses are from Marukin.
This wonderful Cottage in the background is from Trompe Loeil as well as the trees. The Winter Camping set with, sleeping bags, Igloo, Fire Pit, Kettle, sleds (that you can actually sled with!) and sitting log is from Cheeky Pea.. and has amazing poses and animations. The set is flawlessly done. I had some fun taking the photos too!
Sachi Vixen of Adam & Eve is releasing a brand new skin named Carolyn on Friday December the 7th and I have a preview for you.
The skin will come with several tones and I am showing tone two here, as well as cleavage enhancements, freckles, and different type of brows as well as the option for a plain eyelid. This skin is very pretty and my favorite make up of course, is the red red lips. The body is also very soft and pretty as well. You should definitely go and demo it when it is released on Friday!
Gacha, gacha, gacha at the Arcade has run rampant in second life this weekend and I’ve relieved feelings of going to carnivals from my childhood. The Arcade Gacha is quite an intoxicating experience.
No idea what it is but it’s a combination of the music, and the carpeting and the sound of seagulls that makes me throw caution to the wind and spend! spend! spend! Everything except for my jeans that are from Decoy in the photos above can be won form the machines.
I took some extras that I had from the Pilot Christmas Village and made them huge for this background in my photos, just a word though make sure you have a lot of prims available if you do this because it takes a lot of land impact to make them huge.
I wanted to enter the Gacha photo contest and you can find more info on that here: http://thearcadesl.com/contest. I had a lot of fun taking these photos.
My poses are from the Gacha machines from Adorkable and !bang. My sweater is from tulip, my boots/socks are from Boom, my hair is from Clawtooh, my satchel bag is from The Secret Store, my scarf is from Fatewear and my skin is from Glam Affair and all that is from the machines at the Arcade Gacha located on the Country Club Sim.
Rogan Diesel of Diesel Works Poses has released two new photography prop cages, and the one in this post that I am showing is called Nightingale’s Sorrow. The fifteen poses in this photography prop are fully adjustable (quite easily too) and the cage is mesh. I love Rogan Diesel’s photography prop poses because they do half of the work for you already. I didn’t have to do much adjusting aside from the windlight and what not but this cage is pretty fantastic.
I took a sampling of photos with shadows turned and I think they came out pretty well, I’m going to have a lot of fun experimenting with this prop though.
Go check it out! http://slurl.com/secondlife/Brooklyn/111/128/21
I am also wearing new Glam Affair skin in Amberly, new Fameshed – Wasabi Pills Hair, New Jumpsuit at Fameshed from Rebel Hope, and silver shoes from N-core.
I know I say this about almost every skin but I’m gonna say it again.. I love, love, love and love this skin so very much! Glam Affair, rocks this Amberly skin so hard. The lips are fuller and slightly pouty, the make ups, the little crease around the eyes and the layers of different freckle options are amazing! This skin is so so very cute I wanna lick the screen when I see my avatars face.. ok maybe not quite that extreme but seriously.. go demo it! I hope you fall in love like I did. If you want to see any of the pictures larger you can click them as they have much more detail!
The poses in my post should be out sometime today at Exposeur. I am wearing the Modesty Wreath and Bows for my Body Review. You can still see mostly all of the skin but the boys and wreaths cover the important parts. These are really nice poses for anyone doing some flirty Holiday Pictures to a blogger like me wanting to do a skin review and still keep her modesty!
Oh, beautiful Amberly Make ups!
I am also wearing Slink – Mesh peeptoe heels and brand new Wasabi Pills hair from Famshesed which opened today with an amazing new round.
So this month as a Concerned Blogger (Your unofficial public service announcement for Second Life) The topic is giving blood and since today is the last day in the month and I am a procrastinator here is my little story:
So this one time in High School (not band camp) I tried to give blood.. I was all excited I had cookies and juice on my mind.. and then.. they tried, poked me a few times but could not find my veins.. so I could not give blood and thus I got no cookie.
So what did we learn? Give blood, get cookies! But no really.. Donate blood to save lives. Since trying to donate that first time as I got older I have found nurses that could deal with my hard to find veins and what not so thankfully I have!
Where can you give blood? Well the Red Cross has a very informative website and you can type in your Zip Code to find out where. If for some reason you can’t give blood they also take donations, and volunteers so there is always some way that you can help!
Also, if you are a blogger in Second Life and would be interested and doing these PSA month to month contact Marleen Vaughan in world.. trust me she is the best!
