Avalon & Ariel

Well, I’m a naughty blogger, I am.  I meant to blog these… well, never mind how long ago it was that I’d meant to blog these.  :p

While Violaine Villota of Fancy Fairy is known for her delicate, beautiful fairy wings (both in SL and in RL!) and magical fantasy apparel, she also has really cute hand drawn skins.  Her Avalon skins have pleasingly smooth complexions and tones, and feature makeups that come with optional tribal markings to cater to the fantasy market.

The skins are sold with Copy/Modify permissions, and the eyebrows are tintable. If you get the fatpack, you’re treated to the Sunset and Ruby makeups that aren’t available as singles.  (While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up the Dia De Los Muertos skin pack she has up for a mere 50L.  I realize it’s not exactly that time of year, but these are fab and you should have these!)

I’m wearing the Ariel gowns in these pictures, from Kouse’s Sanctum.  The gowns are featured in the following colors, in this order:  aurora, raindrops, flora, ice, and dusk.

My favorite part of the Ariel gown is hands down the lush, full flexi skirt that swishes and flares with your every movement. I’m especially partial to the colors on the raindrop and aurora versions of the gown. The gown features sculpted gold roses, which also adorn the included armbands and the prims that adorn the bodice/neckline area.

If you’re a fantasy roleplayer or if you just plain love flitting about the grid in gowns, pay a visit to Fancy Fairy and Kouse’s Sanctum to see these and more.  🙂

Tempest, Constanze, and Ryel

Today I had the pleasure of romping about SL as a princess.  Yes, I know a lot of RP people would use the pretty gowns from Kouse’s Sanctum to roleplay elves but I’m going to insist on being Her Royal Highness.  😀  I headed over to a sim named Pirate Fairy Retreat to take some pics of my royal finery from Kouse’s store:

Kouse's Sanctum - Ryel and Constanze Kouse's Sanctum - Tempest (irridescence)

The first two gowns are the Ryel gown in blush, and the Constanze gown in bubblegum. I’m not sure which one I liked more; I adored the poofy long sleeves on Ryel and the way the colors complemented each other, but I’m also really partial to the diaphanous quality of the outer flexi prims on Constanze’s skirt… they kind of reminded me of fairy wings 🙂  The second picture shows off the Tempest gown in irridescence; I loved the colors on this one!  I also have Tempest in the ocean color; you can get a closer view of the bodice in this next shot:

While looking around the Pirate Fairy Retreat sim, I went underwater and discovered some marine life.  I went swimming with a seal, and did it in my gown… because dammit, this is SL and I can do that if I want.  :p  I might revisit as a mermaid…

Kouse Singh very recently announced a photo contest, and everyone who participates gets an exclusive Mayah Tiara! (If you’ve gone shopping at Kouse’s before, then you already know she tends to include jewelry and tiaras with a lot of her outfits.) Here’s my sneak peek at it, I think Exile’s Love Song hairstyle goes beautifully with tiaras and crowns:

I’m just going to lift her graphic off her flickr and plonk it here in my post :p Click the image below and it will take you to her store blog where contest rules and info are available.

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:

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
