Autism is a Rainbow

 

Snapshot_009.png
Serendipity “Cutie 11” Pose –FREE @ Redeux .  This pose along with the 3 at the end of the blog are all included, along with several more in Serendipity’s Redeux gift.  You’ll need the Redeux group tag to snag the gifts, but it’s FREE to join!

One of my first thoughts, when I thought to organize The Grow Your Awareness Hunt, was that my goal was not to educate what autism is and isn’t. Sure, there’s a checklist of diagnostic criteria which must be met, but what’s not there in that definition is the unlimited ways in which these few symptoms manifest themselves, influence the lives of a person with autism, and the severity of the impact. So, I love the metaphor of autism as a rainbow.  A rainbow is bright, beautiful, and complete.

This hunt prize from Moonstar on the Sea is all of these aspects, plus it’s just flat out super fun!  Included in this outfit are the bright and sparkly animated wings, the rainbow dress, Omega applier white lace panties, necklace, and bracelet.  I did leave off the jewelry in this post so I could bring you news of an awesome deal on another jewelry set, but they are there in the box, are resizable, and they match perfectly!  The dress comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, both Tonics, and all 3 sizes of Belleza.

So, as I’ve been doing, when I blog the hunt gift from a store, I like to do the write up on the store.  I first found Moonstar by the Sea about a year ago when I bought an outfit at the then Fashion Dazzle Event, now just Dazzle Event.  As I do when I find something I like at an event, be it a gift or great deal like the outfit I had purchased, I visit the store. If you’re a deal finder this is the store for you.  Everyone who visits is given a gift to find somewhere in the store.  There are several group gifts for the FREE to join group, as well as lucky letters and midnight/mini mania boards.  If you’re a fan of the news and gift groups, there are several gifts for those as well, as well as a gift at The Free Dove. One other thing, there’s an affiliate area for Alli & Ali Designs (hair) that has a lucky letter chair for that.  Last time I passed through it was a super cute Harley Quinn style. I’ve covered Moonstar a few times before, so there’s always the tag to check on this blog for more examples of her designs.

Superhero landing pose I snagged out of a box in the Freebie Dungeon, it’s uncredited and very old!

 

These shoes which just go beautifully are the hunt prize from Shoe-ddiction.  I actually approached the designer of Shoe-ddiction when I blogged a purple awareness ribbon pair of shoes that she has at The Free Dove and asked if she would be willing to do a set for this hunt.  She kindly agreed and came up with this bright, colorful, and happy pair of shoes in all the colors of the rainbow with an autism awareness puzzle design on the ribbon.  She even added in Maitreya and Belleza sized shoes for us as the original awareness ribbon design shoe came only in Slink!  I’m really grateful that she joined us at the last minute via request!  It was very heartwarming to me.  The Shoe-ddiction store’s group is FREE to join, and there is a male and female group gift available. There are 3 lucky letters which also cycle in some men’s shoes, as well as female shoe gifts for the Mesh Avatar Appearance Maniacs and Third Life groups.  Shoe-ddiction also has a couple of gifts at The Free Dove, and is a regular participant in the mini-hunts.

Hit Redeux Yet?

Redeux is an event that you’ll want to subscribe to.  Group members of the FREE to join group can scoop up over 40 gifts.  Gifts are great, but it’s the sales you won’t want to miss!  I was looking for something for my hair or face to fit my fairy theme when I decided to take a break and hit up Redeux. So, at the Spyralle Stall, I happened to notice that she had the entire “Spring Leaf Jewelry” set that I’ve had on my to buy list for months for only 50 lindens.  That’s the necklace, earrings, and 2 bracelets, I immediately snatched it up.  However, then I noticed this mask which was next to it, and is also 50 lindens and it was just so perfect for my fairy look that I grabbed it as well.  There’s a HUD included with this Forest Edge Mask that offers you the choice of 4 metals and 6 leaf textures. I chose the texture that matches up with the Spring Leaf set, but if you’ve got any of Spyralle’s clothing with the gorgeous fractal textures, 4 of the choices match up with some of her most popular color combinations.  Oh, and remember the gorgeous Owl Moon dress I wore here? My favorite one of the Owl Moon dresses is on sale for just 30 lindens, regular price 200 lindens!  While this isn’t the prize from Spyralle, the Park Place store of Spryalle does have a lovely hunt prize for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt to be found!

The butterflies on my face are animated as well.  I found them in that huge box of goodness that is the Dulce Secrets 2017 Collection for The Free Dove.  My nail polish is from Mani-Pedi, and from one of the coolest collection ideas I’ve seen!  There’s a series of palettes all based off of Crayola’s big 64 box, that I  had in elementary school, and likely any other American reading this did as well.  You can buy a single color group, like the greens I am wearing for 70 lindens, or you can buy the mega hud with all 8 palettes, and all 64 colors for 550 lindens.

The rest of my makeup, my skin, and my hair (free lucky chair win!) has all been blogged before, so consult the style card. I want to urge you to participate in The Grow Your Awareness Hunt, and to pass the generosity forward by helping at least one person with Autism feel safe, accepted, and included!

Modern Witch

 

Snapshot_1587.png
Pose by Hera “Touch”

 

April is just an amazing month for fantasy lovers in Second Life and I am super excited.  Most everyone in the fantasy/roleplay scene knows that the much anticipated Fantasy Faire is coming up in just a few weeks. However, here’s something else, Dazzle is also featuring Fantasies and Dreams in this month’s round!  I know I’m going to be having a ton of fun this month with all these wonderful creations feeding my desire for the mystical, improbable, and creative adventures I crave in my Second Life. So, before I spend much of the month delving more deeply into roleplay, I thought I’d do a little-tongue-in-cheek bit, about what it would be like if, I, Missy, were a modern witch.

Missy the Modern Witch would definitely wear leggings and t-shirts! I’d be the type of witch with an herb garden, and I don’t see me bending in the dirt in some sort of flowy robe. I’d grow herbs (such as basil and parsley) and …herbs.  The ellipses and the italics here making all the difference, whether or not the herb has any natural benefit of its own, the fact that it’s grown in my witches garden would, of course, make them all that much more effective. Or maybe, just because I, as a witch said so. Totally ripping this from Terry Pratchett and how the witches in Discword are so adept at headolgy.  I would be a younger and hotter version of Granny Weatherwax if I were a witch.

 

Snapshot_1586.png
Yep, lol, I did it, two angles of the same bento pose!  It just worked for looking like I was investigating the items on the shelf, sorry not sorry!  Pose, Hera- Touch

Quite magically, I was able to charm the lucky boards at Oubliette to show an M, which netted me this fantastic pair of “Occult Slick Leggings” It may require a bit of patience if your magic isn’t particularly strong that day, but wearers of Maitreya, both Slinks, or all Three Bellezas, who are members of the still FREE to join Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group can look forward to possibly winning their own pair!

Missy the Modern Witch would also definitely put up with less crap than Missy the mortal woman does.   I guess it doesn’t really require me to be phantasmagorical to practice my bitch craft, which is a skill I only bring out for those who fully deserve it. Which, thankfully for me, is not a skill I practice often, although I have become quite adept at wielding this power when the situation demands, thanks to growing up with older, picky siblings, especially brothers.  This totally amazing tee, which has magically brought me smiles since the day that I found it on a hunt at the Winter Solstice event last winter, is also a group gift at Oubliette!  The “Bitch Craft Tee” comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, Isis, and TMP mesh bodies.

 

Snapshot_1574.png

Missy the Modern witch would still wear a black brimmed hat, but mostly just to keep the sun off my pale skin while working in the ….herb garden.  Pointy hats, however, I feel are for Halloween and Fairy Tales so a nice normal floppy hat will do very nicely indeed.  My magic was finally able to overcome the rush at Pr!tty that immediately followed this recent suspension of group fees (still FREE btw!)  I won this “Frost” hair by again charming the lucky board like I did at Oubliette.  Since Missy the Modern Witch is magical, it was easy to strip all the color from my raven locks and rock this brilliant white.  However, you don’t have to possess occult powers to change the colors of your very own Frost hair, as ALL of Pr!tty’s color HUDS are included.  There’s also a skull bandana mask included, if for example, your powers are not yet strong enough to overcome seasonal allergies and your garden requires you to be outdoors!  But, Missy the Modern Witch is definitely not bothered by such mundane things, therefore, I’ve no need to wear it.

 

I Would Always be Dazzling!

Missy the Modern Witch would be, unfortunately, still rather addicted to shopping, especially those exclusive and creative finds that exist. Maybe I could conjur money to spend instead of conjuring items? Even though I do work for the Dazzle event, and therefore have several items passed to me to blog each month.  I do still shop there!  Actually, I went a bit overboard this round, but it was all up my alley, and hopefully, most will be investments in keeping my pics fresh.  I don’t ever want to fall into that rut of everything looking the same, even if I did use the same pose twice this time, sometimes, I guess, the wheel just doesn’t need to be reinvented.  I’m wearing two things from this Dazzle round in this pic, well 4 I suppose if you count the jewelry pieces individually, since they are sold that way, and the fun dark apothecary coffin shelving is also from Dazzle.  Maybe I should leave it a mystery as to which are Missy purchases and which are blogger boxes? I don’t want that to distract from my honest opinions on things, regardless if I spent lindens or not.  Mostly, I buy from Dazzle because I have a personal moral to put my money where my mouth is, and I try to spread those limited dollars around. My, but I am rambling, I guess sometimes I just want to explain why I am a different sort of blog.

So when I did see this Dark Apothecary from MB Content Creators, I totally mentioned to the designer that I found it fun.  She rebutted that it was supposed to be scary! Which caused me to counter with the point of being scared is fun!  I’m still going to stick with fun! Even though, in my opinion, Missy the Modern Witch is far from scary, ok, that’s just because the thought of me being scary period is just laughable.  But, I can still be mysterious.  Plus, I love the idea of throwing in this ancient touch of the unknown and frightening with regards to witches, even if I’m a modern one!  I’m really into the details of this piece too. The textured old wood, the ancient tomes of knowledge, the dodgy looking bottles filled with the distillations of my …herbs.  My favorite aspect though, is the natural elements in the design, especially the flowering ivy with lights.  I’ve always felt that Witches were more masters of the natural world and less about pulling things out of mid-air so to speak.  This Dark Apothecary is exclusive to this round of Dazzle and can be purchased for 200 lindens!  I also want to urge you to go check out the main store, there are some really unique things to check out, and I have my mind on trying out something I”‘ve never encountered before, a mystical experience of lights, of course, once these Spring induced rain migraines and sinus pressure headaches are in the past.  Sigh, for sure, Missy the Modern witch would not suffer from those.

Snapshot_1566.png

My Beloved, Kimbra, designer of Jewelryhas once again released a stunning set of cannatile work! The Thaliana set features these stunning spirals of the fine metal wire with swirls of even finer metal cannatile cascading from the main design.  Even witches in stretch leggings need drama somewhere on their person.  I especially love the huge bento ring, which covers nearly the entirety of my finger. I’m modeling it in pewter and tanzanite, but all the pieces in this 5 piece set, of which I’m modeling only the choker, necklace and ring in this post, have a texture change script for 12 metals and 33 gem choices.  Each piece of the set can be purchased separately for the low price of 50 lindens each, exclusively this month at Dazzle. In case you were confused about what I did there in my first sentence, this is of course about Beloved Jewelry.

Snapshot_046.png

Ok, I will admit, my last Dazzle detail wasn’t a blogger box, and thank goodness because I got zero good pics of it! It’s been a long time since I bought myself a new manicure, and I will admit it’s mostly laziness, it’s too easy to just pick something from my hands and feet utility hud (and then I don’t have to write about it either, *blush*.)  But I rather liked the exclusive from Mani-Pedi at this round.  I snagged it, as it’s full of those things that catch my eye, sparkly, jewel tones, multicolored and unique.  To purchase from the Mani-Pedi Stall touch the item, then chose which hud you’d like either Maitreya, Omega, or Slink, and then click again to pay.  This Dreamscapz set comes with 6 options in the color palette and sells for 70 lidens.

OH, But the Shoes!

I bet you didn’t know that Missy the Modern Witch traveled back in time and subconsciously influenced Dalriada of MOoH to give out 150L gift cards as a gift each month did you?  Oh, but I did, so that when I then consciously joined the group, and consciously started this blog, I could use that gift card to buy whatever I desired then blog it using magical Missy Math to get each item under my definition of cheap!  Anyway, I had to have these “Poppy” Tip Toe Ballerina shoes, they are 199 lindens, but with my monthly VIP gift card, I got them for 45!  The shoes come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink and there’s a really big hud to customize various areas of the shoes. There are other benefits to the MOoH! group of course, all of which I have talked about a bunch!  The group is 100L to join.  If you head down there, don’t forget the two hunt items which are hidden, one of which is the “Missy” sweater from the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  I just love that name, don’t you?

Missy the Modern Witch would be much like the real me, in that I believe in reusing and recycling, therefore, there are several other little details in this blog that have been seen and blogged before, sometimes all the time.  Which leaves me to sign off the usual advice, anything not written about has been blogged before and the credits are listed in the style card.

Atlanta Beach Pie

 

Snapshot_1510.png

Atlanta beach pie does me make do a happy dance, and no it’s not a lemon merengue. Honestly, I really didn’t make this pie up just to do pie puns, although it does open the door, which I will boldly march through.  Atlanta Beach Pie is a real thing, and it will make you say oh my.  It’s this absolutely heavenly mix and sweet and salt and bright and rich, and, well, I’ll just direct you to the recipe. It’s one thing I miss about living in North Carolina that’s for sure when I didn’t have to make it myself when I had a craving.  What does Atlanta Beach Pie have to do with Second Life Fashion?  The beach and the pie of course!  I just happened to link you a delicious recipe as a bonus.

Pie-Dyed

Anyway, food dreams aside, one of the first things I do when I log in on Friday is to check my Fly Buy Friday’s HUD.  Please note that the marketplace link only works during an active sale, so if you see this after Sunday, you’ll have to go into a participating store and subscribe for next week!  But trust me you really want a piece of this action. If it wouldn’t hurt the fillings of all the other great designers who participate in this sale, I would have been disappointed that it wasn’t Pie Buy Fridays because honestly, I rarely miss a weekend when Pink Cream Pie is participating, and that’s what I call it in my head anyway.  This week’s offerings are exclusive tie versions of one of my favorite original mesh tanks, the Lucy Tank.  I limited myself to just one, the Jolly Rancher Tie Dye, but there are 10 color variations available, or if you can’t pick, you can get all 10 in one HUD for 500L.  The Lucy Tank comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks and all 3 Bellezas.

Pie Got Lucky!

It’s been a few weeks now But Petite Mort and Oubliette VIP groups formed into one group and moved to a new gorgeous sim, Witchwood.  Even better is that the new group is still FREE to join!  I had to pay 75 lindens back in my day to join just Petite Mort, so this is a great time-limited deal.   However, both stores still have lucky boards and the new consolidated group gets you access to both sets.  I won these Medium Wash Flap Pocket Denim shorts off of a lucky board on the Petite Mort side.  They also come sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, and all 3 Bellezas.

Another Free Group?!

No matter how you slice it, two groups who normally have fees to join being mentioned in the same post is pretty great news.  Pr!tty currently has suspended their group join fee.  This super cute windblown precision bob, Demy, is 1 of 5 group gifts that are available.  There is also an optional bangs in the pack that I opted not to wear.  This and all the other group gifts include all of the color HUDs.  Additionally, there are several group lucky letter boards to try your hand at, the store was really busy when I went in and I didn’t win any yet, but it’s on my list of things to go back to!

Snapshot_1509.png

Gotta Keep the Sun Out of My Pies

I found these unisex glasses on the Marketplace from the Cremosas store for just 100 lindens.  They have a hud of 50 colors, a resize pair (that doesn’t go very small, I’m wearing them on min size) and you can edit the color on the texture screen.  I did edit them via select face and added black to make them sunglasses. But 100 lindens for such a good and versatile pair of eyewear is still a great find!

I guess my pie puns definitely were a bit crusty this time, I know I used that before, but this time I really mean it! This time my nut filling was definitely oozing out.  They still suck?  I guess it’s time to eat my humble pie and end this post, with the usual disclaimer.  Anything not discussed has been blogged before, consult the style card at the end!

Where is Spring?

 

Snapshot_1494

 

Pose by Kokoro -Group Gift “Luck”.  I’m either crossing my fingers that Spring will actually come soon, or I’m flipping off the snow, depending on how closely you look at it.  However, both apply!

The first day of Spring has passed, but it sure doesn’t feel much like it, especially for those on East Coast getting hammered by these Nor’Easters.  Still slipping into my warm clothing so I don’t freeze my tuckus off. So even though I’ve been dreaming of Spring quite often in Second Life, today I felt a bit like keeping the chill off.  I’ve got a lucky board item that anyone can snag, a group gift, and a new-me discount hair from Truth to show off today.

 

It’s well known that I spend quite a bit of time down at Sn@tch fishing, rioting, shopping, some hunts, events, basically just everything.  So I’m usually around to snag the lucky boards when the M pops up.  There’s 10 there and you don’t need to join the group to win them, and as a bonus, they are located right next to the riot vends, so if you get double lucky you may get in on one where we hit rock bottom and walk away with a ton of FREE and cheap snags.  Or, finally buy that 7 seas fishing pole, and real in whatever the custom prizes are that day (changed every 2 weeks) while watching the boards, and the riot vends!

Snapshot_1482.png

I won this “Willora Argyle Dress” on one of those Sn@tch filled days.  It comes with a HUD to choose 1 of 8 of for the colored diamonds. There’s a few sizes in the box:

  • Standard Sizes XS-L (alpha if needed)
  • Slink – Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Snapshot_1487.png

There’s really not a whole lot to say about the rest, basically because I’ve covered both Truth and Earthstones so many times, even if the chosen items today are new to the blog.  My boots are unavailable, and my makeup has all been blogged before, so I guess today’s look is pretty much yawn city as far as writing about it goes, looks great on though!  I’ll cut it short and leave all the rest of the details in the style card!

On Beyond Zebra

Snapshot_1312

There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.

Dr. Seuss
My son adores Dr. Suess books, I guess he gets that from me, because I still adore them myself, just on a different level.  He’s really really into spelling right now, and I literally spend all day spelling everything to him, but I’m more than happy to do it, he’ll need these skills for more effective communication as his verbal language is pretty severely limited. Although, he did tell me this morning when I went to help him because his shoes were on the wrong feet “I’m independent!” I agree he’s very independent when it comes to making messes. Something about this dress from Gypsy Chic just said fun and whimsy to me, and Seuss is definitely the master in that department.  Just like yesterday, I have a wide variety of ways to find your goodies, with a few 100 lindens or less nabs from Dazzle, a lucky letter, a group gift, and a fishing prize!  And that, dear readers, is why I’m smiling.
You’ll have to forgive the old lady in me, I just wasn’t all that comfortable wearing Gypsy Chic’s “Palomma Zebra Dress” without something to cover my bits and bum.  I do happen to love it as a tunic top!  It’s soft and flowing, bright and cheerful, and the added waist corset adds a touch of earthiness to the colorful Zebra.  The Palomma Zebra Dress is an exclusive at the March round of Dazzle and is low priced at 100 lindens.  This dress comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas, as well as a standard fitted with alpha layer.  This round of Dazzle runs through the 25th!
Snapshot_1342.png
Park Place “[Park Place] Zebra Director’s Seat”
These studded ankle boots are also available from Gyspy Chic in their Dazzle display, and also just 100 lindens.  There are also several other colors available if you’re not keen on the white.  They come rigged for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Additionally, it’s a good idea to check out the Gyspy Chic store, for just 5 lindens there are several cute gifts, as well as a gift for The Free Dove group right there in the store, as well as one for FabFree.  I’ve been a member of the Gypsy Chic group for a while now, even before being introduced to these fun designs at Dazzle.

Exposeur’s Pin Up Selfie Series -50L on marketplace sale!
Glint is also participating in Dazzle this month, and have yet another exclusive deal for us! This Onyx Zebra Necklace is unisex with its short length, leather cord, beads, and pendant.  The beads alternate between black and zebra print and a silver inlay of a Zebra head is set in shiny onyx. There is a resizer script on this fun and casual necklace, making it easy for anyone to wear.  It’s also quite low priced at 50 lindens!  I’ve talked about Glint very often in this blog, and while it appears that the lucky letters are no longer up, there is 7seas Fishing, as well as credit back on each purchase for group members, and group gifts.  Glint also participates in several hunts each month and has a very well organized hunt board with previews and hints clearly displayed.  The Glint group is FREE to join!  Obviously, I’ve been a member of the Glint group practically forever, and one great feature, which I’ve taken advantage of is customized jewelry.  Glint is also taking part in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing for next month!
 My sleek bob I also fished up this offering of Sn@tch’s Fish-4-This.  I finally completed the set last night, this hair is the last, due to a trade in group chat.  There’s also a blonde and a red version fished separately, and I was able to catch many of those before giving up and whining in group chat about it. There is a rigged and an unrigged version. Anyone can fish at Sn@tch with their 7seas Fishing pole, but Sn@tch chat is where the trading and sharing goodness happens.  The Sn@tch group is 200 lindens to join.

Exposeur’s Pin Up Selfie Series -50L on marketplace sale!
This super fun backdrop by Po^Z is also at Dazzle!  I was drawn to the earthy tones with the pops of color that allowed the zebra print to shine through without being overwhelming.  It’s happily also copy/mod. I discovered Po^Z through The Free Dove and struck up a conversation with the designer after I blogged her and dropped a courtesy note.  I’m happy to say that’s she’s a very friendly person, and one worthy of my financial patronage, little as it may be.  She’s also agreed to participate in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, much to my delight!  Po^Z  currently has 4 group gifts available at the main store, including bento poses and a backdrop, and the group is FREE to join!
I snagged these tights by Baby Monkey for just 10L in the marketplace.  There 35 colors in the pack, for classic avatar, Slink and Maitreya appliers.  They were key in helping this old woman keep her modesty because frankly, no one wants to a see a 41-year-old mom’s flat white butt (even if Slink Hourglass definitely gave me a butt lift!)

Kokoro Poses – Alice Group gift/group FREE to join
The final two touches I have to share today are my ring and bracelet.  The blue “Ribbon Ring” is one of several group gifts at Earthstones.  I recently, thanks to Kimbra of Beloved, learned a way to make my older rings bento!  It’s actually fairly simple, the next time to wish to wear one, use attach to instead of wear, and choose the ring finger option.  Now it’ll be floating out in midair when you do this, but step on your pose stand, and using the edit function maneuver the ring to the proper place.  The Earthstone‘s group is 250L to join.
Now my bracelet I scored off a lucky chair at Zuri Jewelry  I subscribed to this group and they often have fun events and sales.  You also don’t need to join the group to play the lucky letters at Zuri!  You should pop into Zuri’s for more than the lucky letters though. There’s a two lucky dip type thingies, gifts that are FREE to anyone in the group gift area, including matching earrings for this bracelet, and then there are gifts for the FabFree, Maitreya Gifts and News, Teleport Hub, and Third Life groups, as well as a subscriber gift. I felt this Rayna Cord leather bracelet with the teal accents just went perfectly with this outfit playing on both the leather of Glint’s necklace and the and the spectrum of shading in Gypsy Chic’s zebra.
All my makeup, and of course, my favorite glasses have been previously blogged!  Check the style card for every detail!

Exposeur’s Marketplace Sale was still on as a few minutes ago!  I snagged this simple shadow box with 10 poses and mirrors for just 50L!

 

Hello, lovelies!  Today I thought I’d bring you an eclectic assortment of ways to achieve the goodness I’m showing off, a unique event find, some limited time deals, some will remain as is for longer, but all showcasing black and silver, one of my favorite combinations!  I’ve also been brainstorming a way to better combine some of my happily accepted blogging duties with the core reason for my blog, which is showing complete looks with lots of free and inexpensive items.  Although admittedly I will stray from time to time because I adore something,  or it’s a roleplay look, or I find that things that aren’t free or cheap just compliment the look to meet my vision of it.   This post, however, does contain a fantastic and not under 100L event item, as well as the great freebies and inexpensive items I’ve become known for.  There’s a group gift, a lucky letter, a subscriber gift, a Sn@tch fishing find, as well as a sale!  Lots of information coming, but there’s not a thing in this post that I don’t love! So no skipping around allowed! (Evil laugh, I’m just kidding…aren’t I?)  So without further ado…

Dazzling Fish

Have you ever just sat back on the edge of a lake, or out in a quiet boat and just watched the fish swim and jump?  I love how the reflective properties of the scales as they hit the sunlight make the fish resemble glistening jewels.  I was quite a bit of a tomboy as a kid, and loved fishing, and still find it relaxing and meditative when I just need a break from it all.  More than the sparkle, maybe it’s the yin-yang design of the chasing fish in the pendant on this necklace from Stone’s Works that calls forth those peaceful moments.  I also really like the wide, chunky chain that this beautiful pendant is showcased on.  The Pisces Zebra Fish Necklace is an exclusive at this round of Dazzle for 199 lindens.  It’s only available until the 25th of March, so hop on the limo I just linked and head down and see this unique necklace in person.

Snapshot_1252.png

Speaking of fish, these earrings are in Sn@tch’s latest fishing prize batch.  This time the Fish-4-This is “I’m in the Little Balck Dress”  The entire set contains 6 mesh dresses stockings, necklace, earrings, boots and a few shades of hair.  Each piece, including left and right earrings as well as the boots, is fished up individually, making this time 22 unique items.  Fishing at Sn@tch and other sims with 7 Seas Fishing content requires a 7 Seas fishing pole, the casual rod can be purchased for 100 lindens and there’s a vendor for it right near the pond at Sn@tch.  However, once you make this initial investment everything you fish up from then on out is FREE.

Snapshot_1225.png

Very few people like the eat the skin of fish, even if it is prepared properly crispy.  Thank goodness my new skin from Dulce Secrets isn’t fish skin! The current group gift is this “Sose Skin” in the Quinoa color.  I love how soft and natural it looks with pale pink makeup added.  There’s system layer, Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega appliers included.  There are options for push up cleavage, or no, and a choice of black, brown, blonde, ginger, or no eyebrows included. If you like the Sose skin but think it’s too pale, which is perfect for me! There’s a darker “Oat” Version of the skin as a gift for the Weekly Limited group.  Both the Dulce Secrets and the Weekly Limited groups are FREE to join!

Snapshot_1234.png

Not fishy, but has that sparkle like the sun on fish, this dress from Chic Moda is a current lucky letter prize for group members!  Although I didn’t think to stop out of the shadow box to show the entire length of this long fitted gown, it does reach the floor.  As it goes with everything I’ve bought or been gifted from Chic Moda this gown is also extremely well-rigged, and textured.  I adore the fastenings detail on the back, making it very realistic.  This is a great store for original mesh, with a super nice and fun designer at the head!  The Chic Moda group is 50L to join, and there are several past group gifts available. Not to mention that they participate in my favorite sale of the week, Fly Buy Fridays!  The clothes, including this dress, are generally rigged for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Physique only.  Some are Maitreya only, but she’s been updating them to include Slink bit by bit (also allows us to vote on the next upgrade!)

Believe it or not, I’m actually making fish for dinner, for some reason I had a craving…. It’s nearly done, just in time too, as everything else I’m wearing has been previously blogged!  Check the style card for all the details!

Tale As Old as Time

 

Snapshot_1045.png
Pose By West End “Sadness 1”

 

The actual tale that’s as old as time here, is that once again I’m posting a post with hours to go to snag the majority of what’s here.  I debated it, but I was so completely enchanted with the gifts on the Enchantment hunt that even though I finished late last night, I’m on bright and early this morning to pound this post out so it can be both praised, and give you a few hours to rush it!  So I figured instead of my story or ramblings about the stores and why I love something, I’m just going to do one of my annotated style cards. I know, I know, I’m the pits, but if I have a handsome 40+ male reader, I’d accept a spanking for my bad behavior.

Party Doll

50’s Diner located at Urban Corner

Well, I saw a gal walkin’ down the street
The kind of a gal I would love to meet
She had blonde*black hair and eyes of blue
Baby, I’m a-gonna have a party with you

*Missy edit =)

I’m just about 10 days late and more than a dollar short in bringing you this new release from Really Rockabilly! I was super busy earlier getting stuff out from Dazzle, then knocked out with a migraine thanks to the rains. I know, excuses, excuses, the blog hasn’t been updated as often as I’d like this week, and everything else aside that’s all on me!

If you want to get into any 1950s roleplay at all, or even just have a few clothing items for dress up, then the most basic piece should be a black dress with a swing skirt and a halter top.  This dress is all that, plus a bit of 50s Ode to Pink with the skirt panel inserts and bodice. Additionally, there’s a full set of applier lingerie with this outfit, bra, garter, fishnet stockings, and panties.  There’s an inset of the black and pink hearts and swirls patterns in the bra, as well as a back seam and darkened heels on the stockings.

There are several sizes of the Really Rockabilly Black Valentine’s Swirl Dress:

  • Standard Sizes XS-L
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS-L
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Belleza Venus

The Really Rockabilly Black Valentine Lingerie comes as the following:

  • Standard Avatar Layers
  • Omega Applier
  • Maitreya Applier
  • Slink Foot Applier for stand-alone Slink Feet

This entire mix and match set is only 225 lindens.  There’s a little bonus if you go down to the Really Rockabilly Mainstore to snag this, there’s a dollarbie pink version of the dress in standard sizes, minus the lingerie, as the Valentine’s Day gift! Either are a great option to wear and head down to the Ace Cafe one afternoon to dance away when there’s a DJ. Generally between 2-4pm SL time, but there are sometimes other sets as well!

Snapshot_845.png

Speaking of gifts, my pretty pink pendant necklace and earring set is the February group gift from Hedonistic Housewife.  If you’ve never found this fun little shop, it’s chock full of 1950s clothing and accessories.  They currently have the cutest swing skirts with net petticoats for just 50 lindens.  Even better, the Hedonistic Housewife group is FREE to join, and there are 3 jewelry group gifts currently available, along with several roleplay freebies in system and standard sizing mesh.

Snapshot_841.png

I snagged these adorable mary jane’s on the marketplace.  They were just 99 lindens, and come with a HUD of colors of solid and fun retro patterns.  They are rigged for Slink Mid Feet.  Sticking with accessories, my hairbow is one with a HUD that came with Sn@tch’s “Jewel Hair” that I picked up on a past in-store hunt.

Mini Tutorial

Ever since I picked up a pose stand that I can load from HelaMiyo, I’ve been far more interested in posing for pics where I can use it, which means rez ability. I love using the pose stand because I can position it rather than try to move myself to the perfect spot, and put poses in fun positions like I did with the Sittin’ Tree from Stone’s Works in my last post.  You can snag the pose stand along with a photo studio for FREE in the VIP room at HelaMiyo, there’s also a public photo studio with a backdrop in the room with 45 loaded poses. So what I did here was to make my little scene, using the photo studio and pose stand.

First, I’ll talk about how to load the pose stand.  Rez it and click open, then go to the contents tab.  Open your inventory and I like to ctrl+click on all the animations that I want to load into the stand, and then just drag them over and drop them into the pose stand.  Now keep in mind, no-copy poses will leave your inventory and only be in the stand, but copy poses will stay in your inventory as well as being in the pose stand.  The pose stand is copy, so you can create a few different ones to make it easier when you scroll through.  For example, I have one for stand poses, one for sit poses, and one for action poses.  However, if you put a pose that’s no-copy, that particular pose stand becomes no copy as well.  Therefore, you’ll want to make your copies of the pose stand before you drag a no-copy animation into the stand.  It’s pretty simple, a little bit of organization can save you quite a bit of time when you’re snapping pics, and allow more control so you can get better-positioned shots.  Be sure to snag all the dollarbie poses you like and The Fab Free and SL Frees and Offers gifts while you are there!

Snapshot_842.png

Now my scene.  This is the HelaMiyo photobooth that I set up in.  This is modify, so I edited it and used select face to apply textures.  The back wall is a stucco wall with a window, the window is actually transparent, and you’re seeing through it is what I’ve got outside. Sadly, this texture is unavailable as I got it, as the sim has closed. I applied that to the back wall, then added the sheer curtains, which are also sadly unavailable.  To the left and right walls, as well as the ceiling, although not pictured, I just used plain stucco.  On the floor, I used a 50s pattern that I googled to look like a rug.  Which brings me to a Missy trick, that works for photography only.  Instead of paying 10 lindens for each texture upload, you can add a local texture; this won’t last when you teleport, log out, or try to transfer the item, but it will stay as a preview as long as you are in the same sim, which is perfect for just snapping pics. So, overall I was able to create a little living room scene, with lighting control from the photobooth, which is FREE from HelaMiyo!

Just a couple of furnishing credits, as most of what’s shown is past gifts.  The two green chairs, one with a pillow, and one without are from The Vintage Touch, and are available as lucky letters!  The Vintage Touch group is FREE to join!

The wool and knitting themed framed pictures are from Cwtch. Which, I’m sorry to say has now closed, as of January, which makes me sad.  They were a group gift, and are not even available on the marketplace store, which is where you can find some well-priced items. I’m happy now that I have them! I’ve blogged stuff from Cwtch before, so I thought a little note about the store closing was appropriate.

I’m sorry my usual story and pep wasn’t in this post.  I guess the Winter Blahs are turning into the Spring Rain Migraines combined with Winter Break for the little monster of mine, and no rest for the wicked!  I did dump alot of info on you, with the new (to the blog) 50s store, and my little mini photography tutorial, so I hope at the very least you enjoyed that!  Now, get out there and get gussied up and go boppin’!

I just love doing lucky letters!  I even recently made a lucky letter buddy, Gigi, who’s super fun.  I have a system that can be pretty fast pace, and I was wondering if I made her dizzy.  Mind, my lucky letter system depends on my mood.  Sometimes I just want to relax and watch them, or sit and work on a new post here, or organize my beast of inventory.  But, when I’m in the mood to JAM it out I use the following method;  as I notice that my groups update their boards, I take the landmarks and put them up on my favorites bar, then, once I fill the screen with landmarks I start popping around quickly checking boards, remaining if they have just a couple of minutes to change.  I am courteous, and if there’s another M there before me, I will skip that store and not compete.  I generally take them off the favorites once I win all the prizes, unless it’s a group that’s active calling letters in chat, then I’ll pop in and read em off when I’m running my circuit, gotta help my groupies! (haha I wish I had groupies, hopefully male, 30+, tall, dark, and handsome, please!)

Snapshot_316.png

One of the more active groups that work together on lucky letters is NYDesign. Lately, NyghtFyre has been updating them pretty often too! This hot hot hot red underbust corset and lace lingerie dress is on the recent round of lucky chairs. I personally wear underbust in my first life, and now I’ve worn them two days in a row on my blog!  The reason being is that my breasts are just too large for any commercial corset, and I’ve never justified spending the money on a custom one.  So, that’s why Missy is so busty as well.  She’s actually smaller than real me, but I just need to look close to real me for the immersion aspect, even if I do get several comments about them, most unwanted!  But, once again, I digress, I love the gold details on this, and you can see how crisp and clear the texture of this corset is!  Make sure you check out my flickr or the final 3 pics in this post to see just how cheeky the back of this is!

The “New Romance Outfit- Red” comes sized for Maitreya, TMP, both Slinks, both Tonic’s and all 3 Belleza mesh bodies. There are appliers for Maitreya, Slink, and Omega in 3 different styles of the lingerie, and one of the gloves. The lock and key choker is also included, a resize version, and a mod version so you can add your own scripts. I am a bit hopeless when it comes to mesh skirt panels, but they are included and adjusted for different mesh bodies, as well as standard sizes, but I left them off since I’m a dufus. Also included is a HUD for the metals on the corset. You need to be a member of the NYDesign group in order to claim a lucky chair, but the NYDesign group is FREE to join.

Snapshot_273.png

I Don’t Monkey Around About Shoes

Especially when they are strappy and include a HUD.  I scored the “Rona” shoes off a lucky chair at Baby Monkey.  They come sized for Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP.  Included is the Baby Monkey Basics HUD, which has 10 colors.  I opted for the gold shoes with the red trim.  You’ll need to be in the Baby Monkey group to score these shoes, which you can join for 20 lindens.  There’s also a few gifts up, along with past gifts for sale for 10 lindens each for group members.

Hot Little Bob

Nyne is super generous with their gifts, I mean it’s 26 now, and ALL are still available! There are 2 stacks of 3 boxes on the shelves for Nyne’s group gifts from 2017, 1 through 21.  This “Straighty Hair” is number 19 and in that box.  You can get the last 4 group gifts individually, and there’s a  stack of boxes of past group gifts from 2015, which includes shoes, a dress, and shorts. I’m totally considering buying a fatpack next month to use the HUD with all of these gifts.  Really, with Missy Math this is going to work out super fantastically and put it at 30 lindens per hair with the fatpack of colors!  Plus all future gifts! Best yet, the Nyne group is  FREE to join! I wear their hair often, and here’s a link for a search of the blog for Nyne, if you’d like to see more of the gifts that are available.

Dulce Secrets has updated all of their dollarbie items!  I didn’t get down there immediately, but I did this week. They’ve also updated gifts and news and gift group gifts!  I’m wearing the dollarbie “Catalyst Reaction Eyeshadow” which is only available in system layer. The Dulce Secrets group is FREE to join, and is one of my favorite make up shops, top 3, *laughs*, what can I say, I love my makeup.  Bear in mind I’m also wearing mesh eyelashes, as usual. From my favorite lipstick fatpack from The Little Black Dress, I am wearing “*LBD* Red Large Supreme Lipstick” which comes in a fatpack with 12 shades, 2 sizes of each shade large and regular, in classic avatar tattoo, omega, akeruka, Catwa, Lelutka for 149 lindens.  Missy Math puts this at  12.4 lindens per shade, half that if you’ll use both sizes!
