evie’s closet Lucky Chair has been relocated — thanks, Gogo!

The response to the lucky chair at Evie’s Closet has been so overwhelming, that Evie posted this in her group not too long ago:

So.. I just woke up, and  it seems the response to the Lucky Chair Gown was so overwhelming, it wreaked some havoc with the Sim.

Not something I anticipated… and the Sim Owner had to return the Chair to my Inventory.

Please give me a day or two to find a solution, and I will make the chair available for as many days AFTER October 31st to compensate.

Frustrating, but I thank you for your patience and understanding. :/

I was like, oh noes 😦  But then good news followed that rather quickly!

The lovely, and generous Gorgeous Yongho has offered the Lucky Chair a place on the Juicy Sims!  *If you see her, PLEASE thank her effusively*

Attached is a LM…. It will bring you right here. Please pass it on to those people NOT in the Group, who might need to know, and thank you SO much again, for your patience! xoxo

Yay, thank you Evie and thank you Gogo!  <333  Now my altie can get a crack at getting the gown too :p

In case you haven’t seen the gown yet, here it is again:

Here is the LM to the new chair location:

lucky chair wins

Wow, Evie’s Closet has a special lucky chair out just for Halloween. It’s the Honor gown in Halloween colors! She sent notice to her update group tonight; I TP’d over a mere twenty seconds after receiving it and by the time I arrived there were *already* a handful of avs present. The group grew in size rather quickly:

Of course, there’s good reason why people flocked there so quickly.  Here is the gown:

Another LC exclusive that I *had* to have after reading about it on the feed is the Butcher jeans from Fishy Strawberry. How awesome are these jeans??  They are spattered with a generous helping of blood:

different lighting

I overheard in the chatter at Evie’s that the chair will be out until October 31st.  The letters rotate every five minutes, so your letter is sure to come up sooner rather than later.  ^^  I don’t know how long the Fishy Strawberry chair will have the bloody butcher jeans and the letters rotate every ten minutes.

I *really* like these jeans.  I think I’m going to have to get them for my altie, too.  Oh, just a side note:  if your av is built anything like mines, then you will probably have to edit the leg prims to fit a little better, but it’s a minor edit and really elementary stuff.

TP to Evie’s Closet:  Madison Place 60, 108, 468

TP to Fishy Strawberry:  Star Beach Island 182, 171, 22

I also got a couple of LC items from Little Heaven (my friend Vivi TP’d me in when two chairs showed my letter) and I had to rez the boxes at my place, to unpack later… otherwise, I will forget about them and they will remain untouched in the abyss that is my Objects folder for several months.  And you can’t really see in the pic, but I’m wearing my new favorite t-shirt from Kesseret of KessKreations:  a prison-orange freebie that says ‘will fuck for smokes’, which totally appeals to my juvenile sense of humor ❤  Gimme a t-shirt that says ‘shit’ or ‘fuck’ and I’m totally tickled by it :p

Pleiades from Eloh Eliot

These days, my SL is so busy that it takes something pretty special and significant for me to bother with blogging.  Well, here we are with such an event!  Heads up, everyone:  Eloh Eliot has finally released her new Pleiades skin.  They sure are cute ❤ and she sure did a lot of uploading o.o  lol

Okay, vital skin info:  these skins are mod/copy/no trans.  They’re also 0L.  Yup, these beauties are freeeeee!

I’m mainly focusing on the face and won’t be going into detail about the body in this post; I encourage you to pick up these skins for yourself to take a look.  I will say this, though:  as always, Eloh’s work on the body is gorgeous.

There are four skintones available:  dark, fair, tan, and pale.  For each skintone, there are seven makeups available, all named after the Pleiades (of course).  This time around, Eloh has the hair color details painted on instead of being adjustable via the sliders (as the case is with her previous skins), and they have hair painted onto the skullcap as well.

You know, I’ve never been a big fan of the whole painted skullcap thing, except for at events where everyone will wish death upon you and your immediate family for not deprimming.  I liked that Eloh’s painted skullcap has a hairline that is pretty far up, and the hairline is drawn in such a way that it blends nicely with prim hair.

I am loving the lips on these, especially the makeups with the lighter and more natural coloring.  They have a delicious dewy and soft look to them — immediate favorites were the Maea and Merope makeups.  ❤

Anyways, enough of my yammering, right?  On to the pics!

There is no way I would have enough time to take a pic of every single skintone/makeup/freckle combination… so all I shall present here is a sample.  Besides, you’re going to want to see how it looks on your own shape anyways and at 0L you’d be pretty silly to not go and treat yourself (and your alties, hehe) to these.

Clicking on the images will take you to their respective flickr pages, where you can view full sized images (roughly 1000×1450) if you are on my list of flickr contacts.  Not on my contact list?  Add me, and I will reciprocate! All images have had no postproduction done on them, other than cropping.

Okay, I took a few more images but I just remembered I’m on the feed and some people get pretty bent when they see too many pics. o.o I’ll have these arranged in a flickr set later tonight 🙂

Okay, now that you’ve seen the pics, you’ve probably already TP’d your precious avi over to Lippert and won’t even bother reading the rest of this post 😛  But in case you are still here, there’s a bit more info on Eloh’s blog that I found interesting.  Yes, the skins are going to be open source.  She wrote,

I won’t be offering the same PSDs I work with–that’d just be sadistic. Instead, I plan on distilling my currently leviathan-esque PSDs into something more usable and intuitive–in both PSD and XCF (Gimp) formats in the very near future.

In the unlikely scenario that you’re still reading this, miffed at my reckless audacity to not actually offer the PSDs with which I work–fear not, in the following weeks I’ll post exactly (in excruciating detail) how you can produce those very PSDs from the AI files that are currently available on my repository (2) (3).

Eloh, you effin’ RAWK, do you know that?  ❤  Just had to tell you this in case you didn’t already know 🙂  I’ve personally played with Illustrator in a sort of scratch-the-surface manner and I’ve got a lot to learn, but this just might be the motivation I need to take a new crack at it.

To read more discussion on Eloh’s views on open-source skins, her experiences with creating/sharing them with the SL community, as well as updates on her latest, check out her blog at

As for the skins?  You can pick them up, for free, at her modest little Lippert parcel as always!  Here’s the SLURL:  Eloh’s at Lippert (74, 190, 169)

this supercute swimsuit was free!

I found this free swimsuit while wandering around on my altie about a week and a half ago, thanks to Beanie Canning’s blog ^_^ Loved it so much, I had to go back and get it for my main avi!

this supercute swimsuit was free

I <33333 Beanie’s blog! Not just because she finds cute free stuff; what I also really like is how I’ve ended up visiting some really cool Japanese sims because of her tip-offs. You know how it is… you follow a SLURL, then something in the distance catches your eye, then next thing you know you’re collecting random LMs and hopping from one place to the next and stumbling upon all these great new places all along the way!

Ty Beanie ^^

Oh I almost forgot, lol. Here is the slurl to where this swimsuit is: tiger cafe in the Fanghammer sim

Got lots of bikinis in my inventory, nice to have a cute one-piece, too. 🙂

Oh and another thing! I hadn’t realized how easy it is to post images from your snapzilla to your flickr. This image was originally posted to my snapzilla account, and I was puttering about the snapz site last night and clicked the flickr icon. I found that the image got posted to my flickr stream instantaneously. Nice feature!

Thank you, Evie <3

As I’d mentioned in a previous post about Evie’s Closet, if you love your avi you will join her group.

This group gift arrived in the notices this morning, the Chimera gown in Diamond:

Evie's Closet group gift

Right now enrollment into the group is closed, so if you’re not in the group, tough bananas for you! Just kidding :p Go visit her stores in either Madison Place or Juicy and check out her gorgeous clothes, and make sure you join her group when the next opportunity arises.

Disco Bitch

Yay, I’m blogging on Grid Expectations now, people will actually read what I write! Comparing traffic stats between our Poseur blog and here was humbling.

Gogo teleported me to BP* because the lucky chair had a letter N. (Sucks for Niki that she wasn’t on!) She had been watching the chair there because of some fabulous hair that Triangle Caudron had posted. I can see why my circle of friends went a little chair camping mad for this hair! It can’t be bought, you can only get it from the chair.

I am calling this look my Disco Bitch look, thanks to Vivi for the excellent name suggestion.

I'm a disco bitch!

The pose is from mine and Nikita’s shop!

Sorry for not including the location where I got the clothes.  I had several messages all asking where I got this!  I got it from a lucky chair at an authorized reseller’s store.  Only the green version is in the chair but I think there were other colors for sale too.

I’m participating in the La Reina Valentine’s treasure hunt ^^

la reina valentine freebie

Okay, this is not such a great pic but I was too lazy to make a prettier one. :p

There’s a sim-wide Valentine’s Day treasure hunt happening right now at La Reina! All kinds of goodies stuffed in pink hearts that you can grab for either L$0 or L$1. Stores like Veschi, Fireflies, D!ff, Desmoiselles/Juicy Poses, Lounge, Celeste’s Angels, Davo’s Dancefloors, Digital Eyes… okay I can’t remember all of them -_- but there’s lots!

I’m also participating. Visit my shop, my heart is easy to find ^_^ In it you’ll find the skin that’s shown in the picture above. I’ve thrown in the eyebrows too (just go into Edit Appearance and hit the hair color slider to change them from black to whatever you want), as well as a set of three facelights configured to attach to your chin, nose, or mouth (y’know, options for working around your other face attachments).

Happy Valentine’s Day ❤
