This was a very good weekend in SL for shopping and events and so I’m gonna break it up into three posts highlighting my favorite parts.
This Otter avatar is made by the super talented Anya Ohmai and you can get it (among a ton of other amazing things) at Summer Fest. Summerfest ’13 bagan on June 15th and will end on June 29th. This event is great because so many of my favorite designers are participating. For more info on who is participating check out this post here: http://fridayofsl.com/summerfest13/
Glam Affair put out the Petal version of Margot at Collabor88 and I love the pale creamy goodness of this skin and the strikingly pretty make ups, and you can steal this skin at a great price right now! So get over to Collabor88 and grab it!
In this post I am also using brand new eyes from Ikon which you can only get at the Numberology event still going on now until the 15th. These eyes are gorgeous and I love the vivid colors in them. They are my favorite eyes in SL. I am also wearing brand new hair from Truth and the Ankh is from Yummy which is also at Collabor88 this round.
This beautiful, detailed and realistic looking Cabin from Trompe Loeil is available now at Collabor88 for only 288L. With an land impact of only 39 this cabin is a perfect addition to a sim or someone looking for a small but gorgeous living space. I love how detailed this is and the little fireplace that is inside.
If I didn’t have a child I would be all over this space as it would be perfect for me but I can totally see a couple using this space as well. I’m not sure how long the price is going to stay that way but I know as long as its at Collabor88 it’s a steal. Trompe Loeil makes some of the best stuff in my opinion in Second Life :)
Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! You can see Berry’s fabulous post here: http://strawberrysingh.com/2013/06/10/my-sl-movie-poster-challenge/
I’ve fallen off the wagon a bit with the Meme Mondays that Berry does but I think about them every week at least! This was a really fun one and who knows I may do more, I am enjoying this a lot.
For this picture, I found the mini skirt at Fanatik, the shoes are from Gos Boutique and the stockings are from Sheer and I kinda PS’d them in at the bottoms rather poorly but don’t judge lol! The pose is an old one from PDA that was a gift so I’m not sure that its still available. I’m also wearing Slink mesh hands.
So I’ve been doing a bit of decorating with some of the Collabor88 stuff this round, and I love the fun that has been put into it. This inflatable chair and table set from Pilot is just fantastic as well as these cute little Zodiac Chill pillows from Tableau Viviant. I also have that really cool night stand from Alouette in the background.
I am wearing (also from Collabor88) A cute little frock dress from Fashionably Dead, and hair from D!va. I am also wearing (not from Collabor88) shoes from Gos Boutique.
For the month of June, Collabor88 is inspiring us with adaptations of the 90’s. I can clearly remember back in 1994, the year that I graduated High School that I loved anything with Christan Slater in it or Pauly Shore.. in fact Encino Man was our official class movie. It was a fun time and for me just before the internet. It was chill, like this theme – take a chill pill, dude.
I was lucky enough to get a few sneak peeks of the items to come like this cute dress from VinCue and these sunglasses (that you can flip up or keep down) and ankh necklace from Yummy.
I was also really impressed by this 90’s entertainment center from Alouette, because I’m pretty sure I had one just like this in my bedroom. It even had tapes, gosh I miss making mix tapes and if you look close you can even see the names of the bands or the titles on the VCR tapes, it’s wonderful.
I am also wearing hair from Tram, skin from Glam Affair and my poses are from Exposeur.
Yesterday ColdLogic released a few new dresses that remind me of summer. I went with the Yellow because I hardly ever choose yellow but I ended up loving it! I put back on this beautiful set from Caelan Hancroft of Cae called Kasbah which is at Fameshed right now. I took a photo of it below to show some of the detail.
The necklace is fully customizable and you can change the metal and both rows of beads. I am using a single pose from Exposeur and I chose it because it shows off these Slink mesh hands, (pose makers please make more poses like this that are flattering to hands – I love to show them off!). I’m also wearing the Mae shoes from Gos Boutique and skin from Glam Affair – Cleo. My hair is new from Truth.
Not much to say this evening but, if you are in need of new hair you should check out one of these three newest releases at Truth! I think my favorite it the one in the middle but I like them all quite a bit. I am also wearing new skin by Glam Affair Called Cleo, and also the Ikon Group gift eyes that are free until the 7th I believe.
I might have went a little bit crazy at the Arcade Gacha’s June round.. but its like the happiest time of the year in SL when it comes around again to me. I get to make these crazy wishlists for cute and amazing things that make me smile and better yet I get to help people find their cute and amazing things that make them smile.
I love the Arcade Gacha Chat group because I can go in there and say I have two rare something or others and want to trade for other rare something or others and you might have to ask a few times but its one of those times in SL where the spirit of community hits me.. that wow this is really a good place to be sometimes! But I never thought that trading would be half as fun as it is but I love it.
Of course there are the yard sales which can be fun if people keep their items to a normal machine machine price and don’t try to get all crazy high with the rares. Be careful before you buy at them! The one at Pixel Fusion is the best and most organized yard sale in my opinion.
Almost everything in my post is from the Arcade Gacha Event, let me try to list it: My unicorn horns are from Half Deer. My hair is from Wasabi Pills, Lulu Skin from Glam Affair. My eyes are from Dead apples, leg warmers are from Auxiliary. The tent and typewriters are from Floorplan, the robots are from Zigana, the Piglets are from OhMai. The Games are from Second Spaces, the coconut sign is from Flowey, the radio is from Standby, the plushie is from Intrigue Co. The headphones are from Fashionably Dead.. and phew! I think I got everything there.
You can get it all by trying your luck at the Arcade Gacha until the end of this month!
This last weekend a new event from Covert Affairs opened: Numberology.
What is this event about? Numbers! Not just numbers tho, it seems that each number has its own spiritual meaning (who knew?!) So this event will be about just that… their meanings! The Event runs from June 1st until June 15th and has many great designers participating. When you get to the event its best to fly or cam around to the different booths. I preferred to fly!
From the event I am wearing the Paris shirt from Boom, glasses from Adore and Abhor and am using this pose from Elephante – it comes with this all seeing crystal ball which is pretty neat, and also mesh. I am also wearing brand new hair from Truth called Charlize that is not at the event but adorable! My skin is Cleo from Glam Affair.
