Destiny – What’s Yours

Destiny

I have been all over the place this past week, and feel like I really neglected blogging, so I am sorry about that. But I did have a blast setting up for My Attic with Whimsy, and rebuilding the build to be even longer because of the amount of fabulous stores we have this session. There was one stage were Mel had to log in and fix the floor, because well between the two of us girls, we kind of messed it all up to hell and back…I think at one stage we tried to drown Sachi and SySy, making them fall in between prims.

I have also as I mentioned in previous posts, been making nail huds, for the wonderful Avatar Enhanced items by Slink. The nails huds for feet and hands, just got a lot better, for those that aren’t into the hands, or wear too many skins and your skin store hasn’t done appliers yet, she just released a nail only option at Slink near the hands on the wall, for only a small price…and all the huds will work on those too, as well as them having the different lengths options, so pure win I say. I am wearing a pair of fluro nails that I made in the past week, you can see all the nails I have been doing HERE.

On top of that Slink managed to rerelease some older shoes in a mesh add on version, which means they fit on over the top of your mesh rigged feet. So re-introducing DESTINY! These are fabulous and very very high, and not only do they come in these gorgous strappy and very plasticy looking options, but each one also has the clear versions, for even more effect….

Leather HUD

DayGlo Fatpack HUD

Sneak peaks are funna. This is the soon to be released for League item, that will be a feature at Whore Couture Fair that is about to begin in a few days. The list of designers is huge, you can see it HERE. One thing I always love is a great corset, and these new ones by League are greater than great, they are divine. Not only are they beautiful and unique in style, but they also have options that give you many ways to wear them, and definitely make them a must have item. You will be able to wear them casually as I did in the firts pics, more adventurous, girly like, or with a club vibe…whatever takes your fancy, they will work.

I have taken pics of the HUDs as well, as the three styles have different options. First off the leather, they come with the straps down, one up one down, or sleeveless. Then you have all the studs options metal wise, as well as off. LOVE THAT !  Then there is the Lace version, which only comes in three colours at the moment, but I am sure there will be bigger releases on those and the dayglo after the event. The Lace version is more detailed than the leather. The options with the sleeves is the same, but with the added bonus of black trim, or brown trim, or no trim. Then there is the different boning options in both trim colours, or no boning at all. Then also the studs or no studs etc.

Then you have the Dayglo, which is also only three colours so far, but the bonus if you buy the three in one pack, is that the sleeves will change to the other colours, so that is even more options wise…these are gorgeous, and in all three variations, I adore the uneven bottom, and the straps are just gorgeous and alluring. The other item being released is the ADD-ON skirt. This beautiful silky skirt comes in many colours, and fits perfectly under the corset, to make either a contrast look, or an all in one dress. There is also a hud for the skirts that lets you change them from clean to dirty, which is really like an ombre look at the bottom. You will be able to see all that in the demos I would expect, but definitely mark your calendars for the day the fair opens, because it is going to be HUGE…

Darker Things Happen

Permanent

Every once in a while I get all stressed out about my blog and my style of blogging. I gaze longingly at pictures people do that are just so amazing, and thought provoking, they tell a story on their own, and are just visually incredible. I have always been about the items, showing the clothing as it is intended and so on, so then I check myself and remember it was my way, it is still my way, and that is ok…then wash rinse repeat every few months…poor Mel and Whimsy who have to listen to me be all emo about it.

Then sometimes, which is rare, I decide to take a pic that isn’t my way, something a little more creative, that doesn’t necessarily show off the exact detailing of the items, but still does I hope make people want to consider buying them for themselves, or make people curious about what else the store may have…as that is always my blogging goal. So that was my aim with today’s picture, it is not my usual style, but it is definitely something I would feature in my usual way, this time I just decided to not include that type of picture too – usually I chicken out and do both…

Runo Runo – A whole lot of Sexy

It started with an IM about Shibari and a TP to the perfect location for said practice, that then lead to showing a new purchase and a top that was adorable, a quick TP and many many items later, complete adoration.

Yes another day where I log into an IM from Newdoll♥.

RR

Ok so the Shibari part you don’t need to know about, but the clothes are just fantastic, and if on a budget then you are going to squeel. First off you must buy every fat pack in Runo Runo by Jojorunoo Runo, it’s just crazy not to, the prices as singles are insane, but the fat packs are even better.

One pack for instance is the UNDress fat pack , a Must have!.

The pack contains three completely different dresses in black and white options, so you get six dresses that also have many options for looks. This first one is the Undress Evening Dress, firstly imagine it in white also because I didn’t get pics of that. Then also imagine it without the tank tshirt from LaLaFooFoo because it doesnt come with that, but in fact comes either bare or with pasties…yes it is that kind of look.

The strapps and the skirt are part of the UnDress Evening Dress by Runo Runo, and are just gorgeous , I know one Ashia Tomsen that will die when she sees this skirt. The hair is Thursday, a great hat/hair combo from Gritty Kitty, colour change menu driven for textures of the feathers and band of the hat.

RR......

Another of the Undress combos is Cocktail, incredibly raunchy and sexy in both colours. I played with the prims of the white one to bring part of the dress up higher for more coverage, and it looks awesome, not too sure how well it would move that way though.

I think that all the extras will make fantastic mix and match items, the collars and armbands especially, plus I just love the strapped and buckled version on the leg parts, very hot. Again its a pasties combo, but with some great items from your inventory you can of course modesty it up :).

I am wearing the Bax Coen Ankle Boots in both the Patent Black and White, these are scripted for a huge variety of options. Lace upper trim can be turned on and off, an AO walk comes with or you can use your own, sounds, colour options for laces and of course a fabulous resizer script. If you don’t already have these beauties go and try on the demos asap as there are fabulous colours available now since their first release.

The lovely curls are the Delilah hair from Analog Dog, a huge fan of her curly hair it really is worth trying on in any of the wonderful styles.

RR.

I didn’t take pics of the third outfit because I ran out of time, but this dress the Silk Dress is TO DIE FOR. The options in the Runo Runo creations blow me away, I mean this is one set and you get four dresses in one. The silk texture is stunning and the colour is fantastic.

The shading is exactly how something like this would sit and cling to the body, its YUMMY. The sculpted prims are remarkable in all of Runo Runo creations, this set has everything clearly named and marked to know what goes with what, and yes everything comes on all layers.

The hair in this is the Sofia style from ETD, the store is closed at the moment but everyone is anxiously waiting to see what happens when it reopens. The Beautiful and extremely delicate necklace is from Bliensen + MaiTai and it is the Ghostflower necklace, again lots of menu options for changing the amazing leaves and petals, as well as gemstones adorning the chocker, they are an accessory store that impresses me more and more with every new release.

The strappy shoes are from Enkythings, the Bonita shoes are marvelous for a spring date and so is this dress.

RR...

This is another date dress, the Hyperkinetic Dress by Runo Runo is available in two colours seperately…I couldn’t resist both. This is the kind of dress you wear to remind your partner exactly what they have and how much they should appreciate it lol. The layers allow for you to wear all layers to make the lace a little less sheer, but that is just up to you how daring you wish to be, the style is gorgeous and as you can see you get both a long and short version, but also wearing both together gives you a lovely tiered effect.

The hair is Peta by LeLutka and I hope you are all ready for that reopening tomorrow, the Spring Collection is all ready for release at 4pm tomorrow and WOW is all I can say on that right now. The beautiful Art Deco earrings are from Essentia, the prim work on these and all of the Essentia range is remarkable, there is no alpha and no tricks just pure prim work that you need to see for yourself.

RR..

Now if you aren’t into dating or wearing very provocative clothing as such, but really want to give Runo Runo a whirl then don’t despair because their casual styles are fantastic as well. This is the Odd Overall set in black, this also comes in denim seperately, but I was instantly drawn to the black.

First off the buttons are large and beautifully textured, the sculpted pieces really make this a lovely set that can be dressed up or down depending on yoru mood. The shorts are adorable and if you want to deprim you can just wear the shorts with the top on its own. I have to admit to being a bit in love with that collar though.

The hair is Messy by LeLutka the style that I always associate with Thora Charron its creator, again you have got to ready yourselves for tomorrows incredible Spring 2009 Launch, NOTE WELL the sims have been rearranged in this big transition so be sure to update your LM’s for LeLutka Beaute and Mode. The shoes are the Black Frenzy heels from Maitreya the style of these is just gorgeous and the leather work exceptional.

RR.....

More casual lovelies is the Simple Skirt from Runo Runo, the Simple skirt is available seperate or as the fat pack but again buy the fat pack. The sculptie skirt is gorgeous, the wrap around fronted and buttoned style is wonderful and the colours are just lovely. I am wearing them all with the Latte Tank from Awesome Designs, part of a set but such a beautiful tank that I wear often.

Tassel Wedges from J’s are just perfect for the simple skirt, especially the beige pair, these shoes if you don’t already have them are a Must Have especially with the warmer weather coming up. One of my favourite styles of hair from Aden is the Kenzie 2 style, a much older style that used to only be available at the Aden older styles store, hopefully it still is.

RR....

The top that started the Runo Runo lov. This is the Knit Tank and seperately are the fabulous Knit Stockings. The Knit Tank comes only in Black that I saw and has four different options as shown, incredible sculpties that I only had to move around a touch because of height, and the knit texture is fabulous.The Knit Stockings come with three colours one being grey, YAYYYYYYY, and have all sorts of options for where the prim attachments attach, as do all the Runo Runo pieces.. that is a big deal too, there are so many options for where you may want to wear each piece, so if you wear other items and don’t want to remove them, possibly Runo Runo has taken care of that for you :).

The shorts I am wearing are the Safari shorts from CKS Designs, these cute shorts are part of a huge release from CKS done last year and I showed the pants recently in another post, for a splash of colour amongst the black these were perfect. Tammy 2 is another style from Aden and it seems I really like his 2’s lol, this hair also has extensions options, not worn.

Ok now about the skins.

Recently as shown partially in another post, Blow Pop Creator Annyka Bekkers released and rebranded with the New Infinity Line. This skin is the Carmen Skin in Raw Sienna tone, the tone is beautiful and the Skins face is just gorgeous. The make up is really striking and the lips themselves are full and luscious, just how I like my lips to be. You really need to try on all of the New Infinity line, as they are such incredible Hand Drawn skins.

Annyka has spent months perfecting them, and it has paid off. There is such versatility in the whole range, DEMO DEMO DEMO.

All of todays poses are by Ana Lu Fresh Poses, there has been a recent new release in the Ana Lu store and this post was a mix of older and new poses.

Have a great day/night and thank Newdoll for the yummies next time you see her out and about, but be careful she might tie you to something ;).

A beautiful NEW Skin to the ever expanding Gala skin line is Pin-Up, and as the name suggests it is all pouty lips and starlet styled make up that will have you panting, or possibly your partner will be.

Slippery.....

To start off the huge post of Pin Up Skins by Gala, I am wearing Pin Up from Stellar * Waves to Lexi* . The pieces to this set are extremely sexy and great fun. You can opt for with or without the flexi addition to the strapless top, that is tightly laced at the front, highlighting the beautiful shading of the skins. The mini flexi skirt is a staple in any Stellar fans wardrobe and the print on this one is fab. The bangle is also included in the set, and if you are a red/black combo fan I am sure it will be worn alot.

All of the main pics in this post are featuring the Sundust tone in the Pin Up Skins by Gala, the tone is just gorgeous as are all of them, but I spent the day in the SL sun today so it was appropriate ;), but when I took all the tones pics further down I wanted to do another 50 pics, but I spared you :P. As before all the tones come in both a dark and light version, I am wearing the dark option and this is the Starlet 1 make up. I have to say that during this shoot, I kept having a Taylor from B&B kind of thought process with these skins, and hey to look one pixel like that woman would make me very very happy indeed.

What I really like in these is the obvious lightness to the face, in such a way as to really show that you are in fact wearing make up, that there is all over coverage going on.

The bodies of these skins are just as the last release, so beautifully shaded and the stomach is just gorgeous. The hair I am wearing, and yes again I am doing Hair all by the same store, I don’t want you wearing yourself out running all over the place 😛 , oh wait you will for clothes anyway lol. The hair is from Magika and is the Lucy style with an adorable bow at the top, slightly alluding to innocence until you travel further down the body.

Slippery

Ok so by now I know you are going OMG WHERE ARE THOSE BOOTS FROM ?, I know right. They are my new hotness bought for me by my Main Hotness Mel. These are the XPosed Boots by Fussy and these boots are all that and a bag of chips. A triple MUST MUST MUST HAVE!. They are sculpted toes and heel, with a hud that allows for skin change and nailpolish changes, these boots are sooo Sexy and I am dieing for them to come in more colours, and possibly leather options not only patent/latex…not that I have any issues wearing this kind of texture lol as you can see they fit into my wardrobe very smoothly, but PLEEEEEEEASE make me some more more more Satomi pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. Oh and I didnt meantion BOWS on the back lol , these are so yummy I couldn’t take them off.

Also wearing the Solid Black Raincoat from Elixir, these coats in the past I have shown in the sheer latex version, I am really liking the solids as they allow for more mixing up with other items. The Slung Mini skirt is also from Elixir and is an older style that is really sexy and I really like the innovative way that Elixir have created this skirt to look a particular way, and also to work with the way prims work in SL.

A New style from Magika is the Buns hair, really nice large buns, two of them at the back of the head with thick bangs sideswept at the front. This is the Jitterbug 1 Make Up from Gala in the Pin Up skin, and the red in these lips is smashing.
Slippery.
One of my favourite older items from Bare Rose is this Basket. A long time friend Luve had this easter of 2007 and we ran right over and got me one, we also went there in bunny avatars and acted crazy for a few hours lol. I ran into June yesterday and she assures me that it is still there, and even though it was created with easter in mind it is just so very Goth Lolita looking, and the skully black eggs, I mean hello stink bombs lol.

The beautiful Dress is the Julia dress by Popfuzz Bamboo and it really is lovely, the dress comes in a huge assortment of colours, as do many Popfuzz creations, strapless with a light spray of floral embelishment across the top of the dress gives it that little extra in this tube style I adore for SL, no chance of it falling down.

More beautiful embelishments are in the form of the Tiana Necklace and Earrings from DeLa, these are so delicate and beautiful. They come in various colours but also with silver and gold options available. The new releases coming out of DeLa lately are really stepping up into a new level as Kura has been creating with new software and has been spending hours per day learning her new methods, and to me it is well worth the sacrifice of time in world.

The Apple Pie Make up from Gala Pin Up is another brilliant red lipstick option, one release with this many red lippy variations is just fantastic. The hair is the Olga style, another New release from Magika, I am loving the tamer styles coming from there lately, with the cute pins on the sides, Magika is giving their customers an all situations hair range.

Slippery....

The other week we had another one of our, ‘Fia needs to shop” days that ended with all of the girls spending money lol, how he puts up with us I don’t know…oh wait I mean me :P. Actually now that I look at it closer this pic has Fia all over it, starting with the I Bite Belt from Miau Haus, we went there back in Aug 2006 and bought this belt, I loved it then so much and still do.

The Bloomers I am wearing are from Scribble, these come in different colours highlighting the black bloomers, but these are the black/black pair and they are puffy and cute as in a more modern way than previous bloomers I have shown. This post kind of made me realise that there are Pin Ups from all sorts of genres, I mean a Pin Up is really just someone you admire and find attractive, whether you are Male/Female, Punk, Goth, Neko, Furry or a fish its about that appeal and attraction.

The bikini top is from Elixir and is their latex bikini which comes on all layers and is very handy to have. The Aggression ArmBands are from Digital Dragon Designs and are wickedly cool and actually match some other boots I have from there. The other fantastic accessories I have are the Open Handcuffs Necklace and lipring by Sable Rose, the lipring I have been wearing on and off for days it is so cool, and actually from a distance looks like vamp teeth lol. Incredible work is coming from Sable Rose lately and more wonderful creations to come.

An old set of Ink from TRUTH is the Betty tat, I am not sure if this is still in the main store but even if it isn’t its a great indicator of the types of tats Truth does, also this is on not only different layers but different options, such as arms only, back only, back and arms etc. The hair is Acceptable by Magika and the Gala PinUp make up is the Pure 2 which is a bare make up and so cool to have that option with Skins like this.

The bag that we ended up getting that shopping day is the BLACK CAT BACKPACK SMALL “Nekovampi Pet” by NekoVampi this bag is too cute, and if you click on it the cat meows scarily lol. There are three sizes in the bags that you get and the price is fab. I have been wearing this one and off for a few weeks and it is lots of fun.
Slippery..

This next dress is from SySy , a classic black dress with a beautiful large turleneck look. To give it a bit more purrr I have added the Wild Animal Print Belt, Earrings and Bangle from Dark Mouse. I have shown the Zebra before in these and they are just as fabulous in the Tiger stripe Copper, the style of jewelry and the belt are just fabulous for this look or any pants/shirt combo.

The hair in this pic is Root Bear and for some obscure reason I keep thinking it’s called Sea Gull, don’t ask me why because I don’t know lol.

The Pull Col dress is a great little number for casual to dressy looks, it does come in a variety of deep colours , but the black was so working with the accessories I couldn’t resist.

Slippery...

Yay for YaYa , this dress is fabulous and again by SySy. The colours and the shape of the dress is so fun and carefree. I love the vibrant and rich colours in the prints on these dresses, by far my favourite has to be the firey coloured one in the centre. All of them are swish loving fun, you know you do it in your head when you find that kind of dress, I cannot be the only one that makes random swishing noises to myself

The fabulous hair is Riddle b y Magika which is a great tails style with full and fluffed out tails. Again one of the Bare Make Up options in the Pin Up skins by Gala is the Cats Pyjamas 2, lippy or not the mouths on these skins is hot hot hot.

Slippery.......
Slippery......

These are all of the tones in the Pin Up skins by Gala, the body detailing is scrumptious and the tones themselves are just heavenly. In the frontal pic I am wearing the Dark option of each tone, and in the back view picture I am wearing the light. The difference is not a lot but just enough to make that transition you need on occasion depending on mood and weather.

I am wearing the Luna Di Miele Lingerie by DP Serendipity, this is their first lingerie line and it is really lovely. The fabric is a velvet look with lace trim and detailing, I especially love the scalloped edged elastic look to the trim of the panties. The thong is beautifully shaped at the back to accentuate the curve of the lower back and hips, a fantastic first lingerie style.

I decided to show Olga in more colours as its such a pretty hair by Magika :).

All of the Shooting Poses used today are from Persona YAY Mylie Writer is back from taking a break and has brought with her some fantastic poses. These are fabulous for showing all sorts of items, especially the Fussy Xposed boots YUM YUM YUM couldn’t wait to finish typing had to tp Newdoll over to grab some in the laced up and buckled version that I swear was not there two days ago I swearrrrr.

Click HERE to see more of this post.

I recently swung by Elixir and noticed that there was lots of New lovelies, as well as a much easier to navigate store layout, the older one was much smaller. I really like the way they have layed it out this time, as well as admiring the new arty pics that show off the items in such a way that vendors sometimes miss out on doing.
Elixir
Elixir 2
This first Dress is the Solid Mini Dress, which is available in a slew of vivid colours and stunning latex shading. The style is sleeveless high collared, and the length is barely there, thank goodness for the addition of some thong panties or there would be all sorts of complications.

The shading or highlighting possibly on this latex is wonderful, especially at the lower front showing that it is as tight as can be and only prayers and possibly spray adesive are keeping it from sliding up the body.

I am wearing with them the fantastic Yoke from VR Foundry that has so many features, that can be used just as decoration/accesory like I am, or more to the way its intended, you can find the features on the vendor pic and info notecard at the store, but it is RL compatible and has the evilest features I have ever come across when it comes to locking.

The hair I have on is the Hayden style from Goldie Locks, a fun fanned out style that has a realy lovely softness to the flex.

The incredible Ballet Boots that I am wearing are in chrome and from WarDoom Shoes, these boots are amazing and look just like brushed steel, WarDoom has a huge assortment of fetish and regular style shoes and boots, my only upset with these boots is the inability to change the laces colours, but I did notice that other versions of boots do have that option, as these are possibly older, I have already had mine for a few months.

These also have lockable features and what not, so read the vendor to see what fun you can possibly have with them…;).

Elixir 3

Love love love this dress, this is the Mini Driver dress from Elixir…so aptly named as it looks like the pimped up mini’s, but I also have to giggle because of the actress, seriously what were her parents thinking.

Everything about this dress is hot, the length is sexy, the colour combo and the fantastic latex detailing is gorgeous, but the style and those fabulous shoulder pads, just make it a MUST HAVE!… note well too, the front of the cleavage is actually a prim to give it a pulled off of the body look for more realism. It’s just HOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.

The boots I am wearing with it are the Goth buckle boots from J’s buckled fabulousness with laces up the back. The hair is Fab, by name and look, and is from Magika. I really like this style as its so formal looking but can be used casually or for fun as well.

The really cool thingy on the side of this pic is supposed to be a roll of pics, and I didn’t exactly do it as intended but it is so cool and thanks to Zoe Demar for showing the link on one of her Flickr posts…you can find the tutoral and download HERE.
Elixir 4
Khorus of Elixir asked me if I do male items on my blog and as some of you know in the past I have morphed, or worn mens items many times as myself…but as Fiachra is also a fan of Elixir Khorus sent him some of the shorts that are new to the range and Fia then went shopping for more, lol.

He is wearing the Mens Undergear shorts with the underpants as well underneath in some pics that show the white straps. These have a great rubberised wetsuit look to their structure and are great for RP situations. He is also wearing the Latex Tshirt in red, the Rubber Biker Gloves in Red and the White Gauntlets, with the black latex tshirt.

His skin is the Male Cheetah skin from Nomine and his hair is from the Good Life and is called Broder.

Elixir 5
Last up from Elixir we have the Dark Star set, this set has many options for wear as you can see, and again is more of a wetsuit rubber look which is so well done. I really love the high cut of the black full piece as I am sure many will, and the lightning bolt cut out is neat.

The white portions come in both a bikini look and full piece, if you can call it full lol, and has such a depth to the textures that you would swear they were solid protective wear like dirt bike riders wear.

The hair I am wearing is the Lolita style from Magika, which has adorable bows on the tails, and really as cute as it is supposed to look it definitely has a raunchyness to it also.

The fabulous skin I am wearing is the SUZANA-pale 82 from LionSkins, this make up around the eyes is incredible , I don’t have lashes on in the last pic because of the hair and there really isnt even a need for them with such intense liner and detailing. The body on this skin is superb and if you haven’t done Lion Skins demoing yet you really need to.

Garden Party

One of my favourite looks in RL is a style that a friend of mine started selling at the markets many many many years ago. By merging vintage pieces, she came up with a look that would be now considered steam punk, but back then was just way too cool.
Recently I saw an item that just brought that memory back and was so excited to be able to show you.

DE

DE Designs is a store that has been around for four years, which explains the recentish release of the 4 Year Gown. This set has multiple looks all merged into one fantastic effect. I was talking about my friends creations up top and this is very in keeping with what she used to do, taking vintage underwear, full petticoat skirts and then using suspenders and corsetry to layer and lift.

This set has a long system skirt that you can see in the middle, a fantastic tail style flexi gown skirt that is sheer tulle at the front sides, and doesnt cover the front of the skirt at all, its magnificent. The pants are a replication of the skirt and are so much fun in unbelievable textures. There is a sculpted waistband that also comes in a tan colour, but my preference in this case was for the black, and the cropped corset top with beautiful ruffle details has both spine and chest attachments so that you can wear divine jewelry with it.

Another fabulous feature of the 4 year set is the Gloves, sculpted tops and cuffs in more of a sleeve style than actual gloves, are something that you can mix and match with many other items. As soon as I put on 4 Year I knew exactly what hair I wanted to wear with it, the Garden Hair from Scribble is excentric and innovative all at once, the bubbles ascending from the top with the curly frond detailing which sits on top like a tiara, it is very out there hair but in many ways it is extremely elegant as well.

This hair reminds me of Emilie Simon’s incredible film clips, actually the whole Scribble Sim does, look HERE ( especially the Flowers song) if you haven’t seen her work before on You Tube, it’s not just the music that is wonderful, but who ever does her film clips is a genius.

The boots I am wearing underneath are the Goth Belt boots from J’s , the straps and buckles on these boots so suit the look of the suspender straps coming down the front of this outfit.

With Jewelry I went again with the Byzantine Cross set from Essentia, I showed close ups of this a few days ago, and there are demos in the store. The Skin is from Pulse and is the new Kissed/ Delight-lined skin, such beautiful skins always come out of the Pulse store, and this one is no exception.

The lips on this and all of the Pulse skins are just beautiful and full, glossier than some in the past and the make up around the eyes is just beautiful, each new skin release shows a little extra in the way Lorac executes her line, whether it be as simple as a slight change to the mouth, or the inner corners of the eyes, she gives you a simple but ever so effective lift, DEMO DEMO DEMO.

DE 2
The next set also from DE Designs is the Paper Angel set. Again you get an assortment of pieces for this set, starting with the delightful and delicate – and no you arent seeing my bits – underwear and camisole top, take my word for it the front of the camisole is beautiful, which you can see under the jacket partially.

Then moving down to the fabulous laced front pants, these are superbly done, as many try and do this effect down the sides and deal with seam issues, 4 years of dealing with templates really shows when coming to things like this, placing the lacing at the front of the thigh instead you get just as much effect as if it was on the side.

The pants come on both pants and underpants layers, so perfect if wanting to wear boots such as I am. The boots again are from J’s and are the Goth Lace Up boots, which also have bows options but I went for the plain look, such a steal are these boots as you get varying options of wear.

Finishing off the set is both the cropped open jacket, and the gloves, both have cuff detailing with prims and are defintely wearable items with lots of looks to come, the jacket would look especially great with the pants and suspenders combo of the 4 Year Set.

Again from Scribble we have the Stitch Knit/Black/Piggies hat/hair , I love this style not just because of the adorable texture change knitted cap ( changes pattern featured not colour ) but because of the adorable little pig tails that so remind me of the little girls hair in Monsters Inc * giggles and yells Mike Wazowski* .

The skin by Pulse is the Kissed/Magicial-liner, one thing I noticed about this skin earlier, is that without lashes it looks amazing, the lashes are drawn on the skin itself not using the template lashes, so it is effective as all get out, and again look at those lips YUM YUM YUM.

So if you haven’t been to DE Designs in a while, and that is definitely neglectful you have to visit soon, also take note, if its not something you are aware of or have noticed, all the backgrounds of the vendors are done well in advance of releases and are the highlight of DE Designs blog for me, I love when DoC teases us with the backgrounds for releases to come.

Sometimes you just want to hit the road, let the wind rush through your hair, and pretend you don’t have a care in the world. But if you were to do that too often you would have way too much shopping to do when you returned.

League

League recently – and almost recently – released an assortment of seperates that will have you wanting more! more! more!. The first adoration would have to be for the Asuka boots, in either Antique Brown or the Black, you will find yourself wanting to come up with as many reasons as possible not to take them off.

I think especially with the Antique Brown, they have that steampunky edge that really makes you want to come up with that kind of look. I on the otherhand was feeling all biker babed up tonight, so thats how I went.

The release of the Belted Leather Jacket the other day is what started that chain of events, I mean not only does it come with three length options, but the collar, sleeves and armbands are all fabulous. Not that I can see it really protecting much if you fell off your bike, and believe me I mean fall – I am so accident prone. The texture work is beautiful, and not just all the straps and leather jacket goodness, but the actual leather itself and the colours that Nena has created for this range, YUM.

The last recent release had me besotted by the Ella stockings which I kept meaning to go and get bundles of, Nena was so kind to pass them as well as the other items to show you all.

There is much love from me for garters and socks, or stockings but not in the usual lingerie way – though I do love them that way too – this taps right into that with the fantastic Wild Angel Booty set, giving you the chance to wear these fabulous garter pulled socks up and under or in some cases over your skirt or booty shorts.

Again the leather is fantastic, and the angel wings across the back are reminiscant of tats, so its a great teaser. The Ella Garters/Socks come in normal and lowrise options with pants and underpants and socks layering.

You are going to enjoy interspersing these seperates into your wardrobe, and while you do get outdoors and really work that leather.

The fun and beautiful skins are all from LionSkins , a huge assortment to choose from I went with some fun themed make ups because they are really beautiful and need to be shown more. Always a fab choice when showing off the tummy, the Lionskins shading in that area is just divine.

Some oldies and Newness from Magika and FINALLY a reason to wear my Long Fly hair, soooo knew that it would make sense one day, but honestly who could resist that Biggles look leather cap and goggles hair, also showing the Null on the left, Dharma a new style in the middle and Arrow on the mid right.

The poses I used today are from DeLa and just so that you know and have another reason to go there – like you need one- Eitaro has just released Mens poses and AO’s so check them out for your guy or have your guy check them out while you buy everything else lol.

Just a quick mention too, the Chopper I am riding in the pic is from DC Choppers, and it has all these really cool positioning functions so that you fit it whatever shape you are. Really cool looking bikes there, so saunter over when you have time.

Prowl

A few weeks ago, well the same day Newdoll and I went to Nyte n Day we went to League as well, as soon as I saw this first set I was smitten.
Prowl
What drew me to the set was not just the brownzilla yummyness, but also the fabulous ropes and leaf fronds. The set is called Steampunk Apocalypse by League and there are so many ways to wear it. For a start you get two versions of the corset , just in case ropes aren’t your thing, then there is the bolero jacket that actually has shoulder pads but I opted for without.

The detailing on all the textures is superb and very authentic looking, you can just imagine a survivor making such a great and fashionable item out of the bits and pieces she was able to salvage. The stitching on the corset is large and course, but incredibly done. One of my favourite parts – not shown- is the bra top underneath, made from a piece of fabric and just twisted and manouvered into a strapless bra. Everything in the set including the leg warmers and arm bands are just fun and quirky , I love the amount of thought that went into this set, as I said there are many pieces, including even a rope belt, that you would be able to mix and match these pieces with many others.

Such as the Shaman rust Jewelry set from Dark Eden, again someone working with the aftermath and putting together such fantasticly inspired pieces from the debris. I really love the hand pieces, they are so cute, and the cogwheel/gear necklace and earrings… there are different versions of rust you can get in these sets, I went with the Dark. Also from Dark Eden I am wearing the boot bases to the Vagabond boots, I will show them in full another time, but the bases worked really well in the mushroom colour for this set.

The hair is from Old Gravy, and somehow, which is amazing to me; I didn’t already own this style. It is the Candi style, and the bangs and those full tails are just too cute. Now I have to point out that when I was there a few weeks back it seems that Old Gravy have reverted to their old ways, some hair has demos, some doesn’t it’s all very confusing. But trust me, if one of the demos fits you then it all will, and it is all fab.

Prowl 2

Now lucky for lag that day, because I was strolling about near the entrance to League and ended up in one of those fun lag pulls, you know when you are trying to walk and then suddenly you are traveling over sims lol. Well I found my self smacking into Unzipped which is just across from League and WOW what a store. It’s like this huge steampunk RP kind of metropolis thing lol, ok I don’t know how to explain.

First off Newdoll and I were entranced by the vehicles, especially the motorbikes/tanks, they were so many degrees of cool, unfortunately they don’t let you sit on the display one :(. Then the clothing got a hold of us both, I couldn’t resist this set, even though it will be very rare I will get a chance to wear it.

It is called Nocturnum and its wicked. You get three different looks in the one set, the long skirt , which I couldn’t help capturing in full swish as I changed poses. Then you have the short skirt option, which is good for a fast getaway – those future men are scarey, you can so tell I grew up in the era of Mad Max :P. Then you have the long pants and the long coat option, you could wear the coat train with the short skirt, but for pics it kind of goes through the skirt etc. I love the jacket in this set, and can see wearing it with all sorts of other pants.

There are so many incredible sets like this one, so make sure you check them out, I made it easy for you to go to both stores in one go :P. The boots I am wearing are again the Nomad boots from Dark Eden that I wore and showed closer the other day, the moss pair were a little light, but as they are mod I was able to tint them darker.

The hair again also from Old Gravy is Vicious, the long tails with the strips of cord, and that widows peak YUM YUM YUM ! can more hair people make hair with bangs like that pleeeeease , or Satine you make more, because seriously they are incredible bangs and I have both styles from Old Gravy that have them and I want MOOOORE.

The skins I am wearing in todays post are both from Lion Skins. They are the SU skins in sunkissed and pale, beautiful dramatic make up without being so dramatic you cant just wear them all the time. The bodies on the Lion Skin skins are beautifully shaded, the tummy is yummy. Definitely DEMO time in these if you didn’t already get over there when they did a huge revamp recently. The Lionskin skins are definitely wear as little as possible skins because the detailing on the bodies are really well done, you will be wanting to be half nakey as often as possible.

The poses are again by Street Magic and if you didn’t go yesterday and check them out, you can today :P.
