Fairy Floss Unicorn

They say you should wear bright, cheerful colours on days you are feeling less than 100%. Today is Monday, so I’m bringing out the vivid hues to combat the work-week blues!

The Unicorn HUD from NO.MATCH is simply brilliant and the hair I am wearing is now available at The Liaison Collaborative. It is a fabulous style that works beautifully with the colourful textures. Also available at TLC are the eye shadow and lipstick from Zibska. They are complementary and sold separately. Do check the compatibility of the appliers; they are made for different mesh heads, but there is an Omega version of both.

Love my swimsuit? So do I! I love it so much I ended up naked in the middle of FaMESHed on opening day for it! What? How? Why? You ask? Fun story…

As you will be aware, if you manage to squeeze into FaMESHed on opening day, it is jam packed to the rafters. That was the case when I arrived. I grabbed the demo, but since getting back in if I left to try on demos (as I often do) was highly unlikely, I chose to try the demo at the event. Now, this suit comes with three textures per pack, and there are around 12 base colours available, so those are a lot of choices to be made. And of course, since it was so busy, the sim was lagging horribly. I did the right thing by putting on the swimsuit, waiting for it to rez then taking off my other clothes. I was happily switching through the textures very slowly (again, thank you, Lag Monster), trying to decide which colour pack to buy. I was trying on for probably 15 minutes when I thought to myself, “Oh, this is the actual suit; there are no DEMO tags or print on the textures…hmmm.” No sooner than the thought flashed across my brain, there was a swirl around me and a message that the demo time had expired. And POOF! I’m naked in the dead centre of FaMESHed!

My first thought was to TP out. I quickly discarded that idea because FaMESHed…opening day. I hit my Maitreya HUD to attempt alphaing out my body, but it, too, was slow to react. While waiting for the bloody thing to respond, I dived into my inventory to slap on the first bit of clothing I could find, then dashed behind the booths. By the time I was hidden away, I was nothing but a floating head and shoes wearing a very brief dress, huddled in the bushes.

I bought the teal. And went on to try a few other demos. Shopping from behind the scenes isn’t a bad way to do things. I might just make that my MO while shopping busy events from now on.

Oh…and I’ll have a saved outfit handy. Maybe even dressing as a fairy floss unicorn.

Glitter & Glam

The January BishBox is out and it is a glitzy, glittery, glamourous release.

The glitz comes from these ear cuffs from Noodles, which you’ll be seeing a lot of in the coming days. I haven’t taken them off since my box arrived! The cascading diamonds, along with the single solitaire that sits atop your ear have just struck my fancy. And speaking of fancy, the hair from Doe with multiple single colours and belayage wrapped up in a very posh bun are simply la-di-da. The dress from a new-to-me store, [I<3F] & [I<3C] is simply classic, echoing Chanel with the white-on-black design.

If you aren’t a part of the BishBox subscription, hop over to the BishBox Headquarters to pick up the current box and sign up for the next.
