Thank You, Veterens

In Flanders Fields

BY JOHN MCCRAE

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.
I forgot to hunt down a poppy before taking the pics for my Remembrance Day/Veteran’s Day post.  I was going to post this Saturday but decided to get it up a day early in case any of you wanted to try to get any of the things I’m wearing to wear it yourself in honor of veterans everywhere.  I did find a 1 linden poppy on the marketplace though! I plan on wearing it whenever I’m in game on Saturday.

I’ll Lay Off the Pie Puns

Pink Cream Pie has changed out its lucky letter boards, which are group only, to have not only all new items but EXCLUSIVE ones.  I’m wearing the lucky board version of the “Kayla Skirt” which is this camo print. One thing I like about the Kayla skirt is that I don’t have to remember to slap on applied underwear if I don’t feel like giving everyone and their mother a peep show, it’s included! I know I mentioned Vaygah’s (the designer and owner of Pink Cream Pie) personality before, but I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun waiting for lucky letters!  She hung out with us, and got us all dancing, and even posted a video on Facebook!     Yep, I’m in the video, gloriously mixed-almost-unmatched in stripes and argyle)It will cost you 250 lindens to become a Pinkie Pie, but that includes a new gift each month, access to the exclusive lucky letter boards, 100 lindens in store credit a month, and random funness, and those surpieses that only Vaygah can provide. (ok one pun, but I forever think in my mind when Vaygah does something random for the group that it’s a surPIES for us.)

The Fishnet Collection

I’ve chosen a top and stockings from Sn@tch’s “Fishnet Collection”.  There are multiple choices in the omega hud for everything from a full bodysuit to gloves, bras, tops, stockings, underpants, you name it.   The Fishnet Collection is a prize set out by Sn@tch in Pulse’s Birthright game, which you can still run through for FREE. (Mature content warning, not of a sexual nature, but violent on the Birthright game.) For modesty’s sake, I slipped on a group gift crop tank top from Blueberry.  The Blueberry group is 20 lindens to join.  The army green sweater I’ve tied around my shoulders is from a designer no longer active.

My boots are also made by Sn@tch, can be fished up currently as part of the “Westside OG” fishing bag that is currently set out in Sn@tch’s pond.  I featured more of the set here.   Fished items are always FREE with your 7Seas fishing pole.  A wise investment of 100 lindens for a casual rod, or 250 lindens for a pro rod that allows you to skill up and compete in grid-wide fishing contests. Don’t worry, if you don’t care about the fish, you can just set the rod to catch the unique objects that the sim puts out, see the 7seas page for more info, and other designers from whom I’ve fished up unique content.

It’s the Truth

Truth is one of my favorite groups.  Not only does it give one exclusive VIP hair a month, but if you join right now in honor of the 1st Anniversary of the VIP group you can snag 250 lindens in store credit.  The VIP group is 350 lindens to join.  I used some of this credit to pick up this sideways frenchy kinda twist updo from Truth’s discount section.  Buying a single color pack, the “Winona Hair” is only 50 lindens.  You can alternatively play 100 for a variety pack, or 250L for all of them.  I bought the black and whites pack and am wearing Black&Whites05.My makeup has me reusing a dollarbie I found on the marketplace and used often.

My make up has been covered in previous posts, dollarbie eyeshadow here, and my lips from a fatpack from Little Black Dress that I use (and mention) often!  The tiny little black pearl earring you see poking out is made by Poeme and is currently unavailable, although I did pick it up for a song at the Hocus Pocus Cart Sale in the beginning of October (along with other colors in the pack!)

In closing, I know words are never enough, but those who serve and protect in the World’s Militaries have my respect and gratitude for keeping us safe.  As a former Army wife, I know some of what kind of sacrifices that involves.  Thank you.
