Window Dressing

1 Window Dressing sm

It’s “that time of the month.” You know, Uber just opened. Just when the frenzy of Collabor88 and Shiny Shabby have died down, this event teases us to spend those last few Lindens we managed to hold on to for the first three weeks of the month.

The leg wraps I am wearing from at Uber are just so pretty! Delicate and feminine, they are the perfect way to go barefoot and be shod at the same time. Is it cheating? You’ll have to try to get into a convenience store wearing them to be sure 😉 They are a wonderful match with the lingerie from .::Dead Dollz::..

Make sure you hang onto a few of those L’s, though, because The Arcade is just around the corner! March 1st is one of those dates that is marked on a LOT of Second Life resident’s calendars as the gacha event to end all gacha events begins. While this event is always full of whimsical, must-have items, [ keke ] gives us whimsy and practicality at the same time. Her lovely garden accessories can easily find a permanent place in your SL home.

But be sure, before you throw away all of your money, you head over to Exposeur to take advantage of a MASSIVE sale and help out a good cause. RubyStarlight Writer, the owner and creative genius behind this pose/prop store, is desperately trying to raise funds for veterinarian bills for her two cats. At least one of them needs surgery; she is still waiting to hear whether both will, or not. The sale goes on indefinitely, but don’t waste any time heading to the main store. Everything is priced at 50-100L (including her amazing large pose props), with gachas reduced to 15L. There has never been a better time to stock your inventory with a pose to suit just about any occasion. And, you can help out Chloe and Brookie at the same time.

Stop just being window dressing; you’ve got shopping to do!

1 Scooped sm

Sometimes it all comes together.

I’ve had this pose by !bang for Sad November all month. I just hadn’t found the inspiration to blog it.

Couples poses can be tough, especially those where the pair are entwined, like this one, if you’re wanting to show off clothes. And if you’re wanting to showcase it, you have to be careful to stage your scene so that it is a centerpiece, and not lost amongst the furnishings.

Enter the body tattoos by Clemmm for Enchantment. It is just the thing to bring focus to the pose, while showing off some awesome ink.

Even more amazing is that I was able to get Chance and myself both in the event the day after it opened!

I was a bit disappointed that the Slink applier for this tattoo doesn’t work with the Slink Physique male mesh body, but when Chance is stripped down to his basics, he still looks pretty good. The only real issue was that I didn’t want to have to try to edit his system hands, so he’s wearing his Slink appendages. I had to touch up the hand tattoo in Photoshop. I didn’t make it look as good as the real deal, but I did my best.

Despite that minor issue, I think we scooped up some good stuff 😉

And She Wears The Bones Of The Slain

1 She Wears The Bones Of The Slain sm

Not that she did the slaying, Not in that dress!

You can pick up the gown (bones included) from Salt & Pepper at the The Pastel Goth Fair. It’s running until October 30, so you can find lots of pretty, feminine goth stuff while you’re there. Did I really just put “pretty”, “feminine” and “goth” in a sentence together??? Well, I guess there’s always a new spin on an old fave in Second Life.

The pose is part of a set by !bang for GEN-Neutral, which ends on October 26th. As always, the pose set is packed with value with mirrors of every pose included.

And let’s talk about the location. Calas Galadhon Park is an iconic group of sims in Second Life. Once again, Ty and Truck have created a new sim for Halloween, called Calas Galadhon’s ‘VALYRIA’. It is full of adventure, with secret locations, dragon rides and loads of amazing landscaping for amazing photo ops. Make sure you stop by to explore and visit the bones of those who were slain.

(Making a dress from them is optional)
