Color of Your Energy (Pose Fair 2015, Park 2)

Continuing on with Pose Fair 2015, I found this awesome prop from Everglow. There’s actually a series of them, ranging from ones you hold, stand on, and sit (single sit, displayed above). They work well for decorating a scene, like how they sit under Grace & I while using Verocity‘s adorable new Girlfriends pose!

How the Night Changes

seasonschange600

It’s not quite snowy winter here yet, but I suppose that’s still on par, seeing as the season doesn’t official change for 2 more weeks! But in the evening, it’s still chilly enough to break out those scarves and sweaters we love, and of course, ColdLogic delivers with this adorable sweater dress combo. It’s so cozy to dress in, and works perfectly for this equally cozy and sweet pose from RACK Poses – out at this month’s The Liaison Collaborative, which should be wrapping up in the next few days!

So Ridic

ridic01_600 ridic02_600

A big reason why I try not to blog too many event-specific items is because I find more often now that RL gets in my way of actually sitting down to hammer out posts before said event ends. Thankfully, quite a few items you can then find in store, just like these poses from RIDIC, just recently out at The Hottie Cooterati Experience‘s Rhapsody! Mixing singles, friends, and couples, you’ll find a very cute array of poses perfect for your pictures.

All the Single Ladies (Pose Fair 2014, Part I)

posefair_mien posefair_fri posefair_marukin

Today begins my favorite event of the year: Pose Fair 2014, presented by The Hottie Cooterati Experience! Don’t get me wrong, there’s many great events every month, and a special few rank very high in my book. But I have the most fun with Pose Fair, because to me, poses are what hold a photo together. Plus I get to stock up on my supply without having to run sim to sim to sim; it’s all on one. The sim will open up Saturday, April 19th (today!) at Noon SLT. (URL to be provided here once the event opens!)

I was lucky enough to get into the fair early, and spent more than I meant to. But that just means there’s a lot to preview for you. Breaking it down first is what I use the most – single female poses. Mien has a fun pose set out for mock selfies that comes with it’s own iphone-like prop to use. Fri.day and Marukin also both have new singles pose sets out, which any look at my archive here will tell you… they are among my favorite. Simple and clean, neither ever disappoint. A good investment for any photo-fiend!

I can’t go without mentioning the clothes, of course. ColdLogic has another spring set out, with three belted dresses available. And over at the 100 Block event, you’ll find these sandals from Reign – a new to me store with shoes that emptied my wallet. This hair from Magika is actually a modified version, but there’s now a proper short haired (no braids) version available called Shimmer, so be sure to pick that up!

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes (Blue)
Hair: Magika – Shine (modified)
Dress: coldLogic – Timm (Khaki + Coral belt)
Shoes: Reign – Spartan Sandals (Coral)

Hands: Slink – Mesh Hands (Relaxed)
Makeup: Maxi Gossamer – Groomed Eyelashes (Black), Filthy – Lashes 1
Jewelry: Magic Nook – Summer Hoop, Maxi Gossamer – Baroque Teardrop necklace
Pose: Mien – Selfie 4 & 2, Fri.day – Monday 5, Fri.day – Careless 4 & 5, Marukin – Parisian Maiden, Call Me When You Need Me (all available at Pose Fair 2014)

Around the World I

Starting on Thursday November 15th, The Ego Co. presents Around the World, a journey across cultures and experiences through the eyes of Second Life’s most creative minds. FAKE has created a few different versions of this Lona Native skin with different tribal tattoos, and from Ziau comes this multi-faceted piercing set, catching my eye immediately I think due to the curved hoop-like piece through the septum. Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this event!

52 Weeks of Color – Russett & Feldgrau

Oh, hello there! Been awhile, right? I know. The last month has been spent moving apartments (a process that took at least 2 weeks, and was actually two moves… don’t ask), and getting deep into some roleplay. Alas, this fell by the wayside. Not just the challenge, but blogging in general. But! All seems to be settling now, so here comes the first of many.

I love both of the tops in these shots, since the tank at paper.doll fits one of my mesh shapes perfectly, and this Ducknipple tank/sweater combo comes with a HUD for color change options. Both fabulous & already in my regular wardrobe rotation.

Another find at this month’s Collabor88 is this preppy sweater from Tres Blah, just in time for Autumn! Magika‘s also bringing out more of the gorgeous full hair I can only dream of having for real, this one courtesy of a gift from my awesome amiga, Malice! Makes me wanna walk around saying, “Oh, Dahhhling…”

52 Weeks of Color – Rust, Cadmium Red, Astronaut Blue, & Persian Rose

As this challenge crosses the halfway mark, I’m really finding it hard to continue. But it’s not because of a lack of ideas for clothes. Lord knows there is plenty out there, in my inventory, & on the walls of shops, freshly released to steal our pocket change. I think I just get behind on one week, then it piles up. And just like my last catch-up, this one’s covering multiple weeks (try four!) But hey, gives me a great chance to get good use out of Glitterati’s offering for the last round of Stumblebum Brigade (in its current format). The mesh frame comes with ten different colors and poses, all that fit my avatar perfectly (though you can adjust with a simple /1a command).

For these weeks,  I chose something old (Fishy Strawberry’s Ignition lingerie, among my favorite), and a whole lotta new/newish. Aura’s mesh Grimm corsets, beautiful as they are, were first released for Glam Affair’s Fairy Tale event, but you can find them now in store. Similarly, paper.doll released partial mesh tunics for a previous round of Stumblebum that I’ve been wearing on regular rotation, since I love how they fit. Then, we have some system clothing-textured gems: an old tanktop from Erratic and a new line of drawn shorts from Surf Couture!

TGIF

One of my favorite bits about Fifty Linden Friday coming back, I’ll admit, is that fri.day is involved again. I’d buy Darling Monday’s clothes on the regular anyway (& hair!), but I could always count on a great deal periodically on Fridays from her store. Her classic style just goes with everything! And she’s ventured into mesh now with more of staple wardrobe picks, like these tank tops that have been released. They fit great (standard sizing with a small flair at the bottom to fit over mesh pants) and as usual, come in many colors to choose from! She’s also got a few new pose sets both from the Pose Fair and I think one since, or to be released, that you must check out. None are featured here today, but in the past and definitely in the future (since they work so well with my avatar!)

Going For a Stroll

Another gift you’ll find from the Taste of Second Life 2nd Birthday Hunt is this cute pose from Bounce This Poses. I don’t often grab couples poses because I don’t use them much, but I love when they inspire a setting, like this one. Could easily be used in a park or elsewhere. You’ll also find this bag over at Evolve; it’s a recent release with quite a few different patterns & options, but the free gift is a cozy brown weaved version with hearts along the front that’s very cute!
