60L Sunday Sci-Fi Sweets

The 60L Sunday group is HUUUUUGE and so yes, there’s a ton of stuff that gets listed each week.  Last week’s list was well over 150 items.  😮

Thanks to the organizational skills of the people behind 60L Sunday, however, going through the entire list is entirely do-able.  They use a subscribo system to deliver a notecard to members, and the notecard is basically just a list of all the stores that have a 60L offering for that day.  For each store listed, there’s a landmark and picture embedded.

I was able to look at all 150 textures within a reasonable amount of time, and since the notecard is sent with Modify perms I’m able to edit the list as I go through it.  I simply deleted the items I knew I would not be picking up for whatever reason, while leaving intact the listings for items that caught my eye and interest.

Last Sunday, I picked up three items that really got my attention as I looked at the ads:  the Blind Mag eyelashes from Crimson + Clover, a Donna Flora dress called Jillian (it was available in four colors, I chose platinum), and celt carved earrings from Beautiful Jewels.

The eyelashes are fantastic. At first I paired them up with my white orbital eyes from Nomine (I’m not sure if these eyes are still sold, it seems I’ve had them forever and after all this time they’re still among my favorites)…

… but I paired them up later with my all dark eyes and I think all that black makes the lashes pop out more!

I wore the Donna Flora dress and C + C lashes with my new Laya hair from Exile, my white knee high boots from LAQ, and my Luck Inc. wide leather belt for a kind of science-fiction-ish look:

The Jillian dress uses a system skirt, so I busted out my dress shape for these pictures.  (Time for a little shameless plugging of my own store:  I include a “dress” version with all my shapes, to be worn with clothing that employs a sytem skirt layer.)  I’m generally not a fan of system skirts because of the way they seem to inflate your avi’s ass like there’s no tomorrow, and because of the way they often appear to be floating around your torso, but the skirt on this dress was very nicely done and any wide belt will work great at the waist area.

Last but not least, the pair of earrings that I picked up from the 60L Sunday event:

Don’t let the sheer size of the 60L Sunday listings prevent you from picking up some gems! The organizers make it easy for you to filter through everything, it just takes a little bit of time to look at notecard pictures. (Plus, I think they’ve taken the size of the group into consideration so now they’re making it a weekend event that actually covers Saturday and Sunday.)
