May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii

Hawaii Pono’i, nana i kou mo’i, ka lani alii, ke alii
Makua lani e, Kamehameha e, na kaua e pale, me ka ihe

Aloha kakahiaka 😀

May 1st in Hawaii Nei is first and foremost considered Lei Day, and while I do love playing at being all sorts of things in SL — a faun, a siren, a medieval maiden — there are times when I love being able to make my avatar feel like home, so I’m always tickled when I come across items in SL that remind me of my beloved island home. ^_^

Here are a few of my favorite items I’ve found; more info on the items below will appear after the cut (if the cut even works at all on the feeds lol):

plumeria

Plumeria flowers are super common in Hawaii, so I was really pleased to find these well-made plumeria hair ornaments and this lei. The blossoms for your hair actually come in three colors, and go on either side of your head to indicate whether you’re single or spoken for, cute touch imo!

I’m infatuated with this hair, partly because it reminds me so much of the way the dancers from the hula halau will arrange their hair when about to perform in events like the Merrie Monarch Festival.

orchid lei

This orchid lei actually comes in two colors; I chose the white one but you can also get a pink version.

I had wanted to rez a copy of this lei in order to unlink it and create a matching hair ornament, but it’s no modify. I think I may suggest creating a matching blossom for tucking behind the ear, to the person who made it. ^_^

kukui

The kukui nut lei is often used for dressing up for formal events. I was thrilled to find this! The place where I found it also sells an anklet version; because they’re copy/modify, I was able to mod one into a bracelet. ❤ I might try rezzing a copy of one of the anklets later so that I can unlink the prims and mod a couple into a pair of matching earrings.

bone fishhook

This is not something I’d wear around my neck in RL, lol, but it’d definitely work as a decorative hanging in my car on the rearview mirror (right now I’ve got a dried orchid lei hanging there). I thought it looked really cool, though, so I picked it up :p

When my friend Tea (who is also from Hawaii) and I saw this hairstyle, it immediately reminded us both of home! The local girls often put their hair up in a style similar to this, myself included. After pairing this hairstyle with shorts and “rubbah slippahs” (flip-flops to all you mainland folk), I can almost smell the ocean, hear the chatter of people on the beach and the occasional braddah playing his uke and singing, and taste the spam musubi. 😀

ti leaf lei

The ubiquitous maile lei, common at weddings and graduation ceremonies and hula festivals all throughout the 808 State, is actually nowhere to be found in SL. The closest thing to it I’ve found are these ti leaf leis which mimic the look of the maile. These are at the same place where I found the orchid leis.

If you feel like listening to a bit of Hawaiian music, here’s a favorite stream of mine that’s on my parcel’s music stream changer, you’ll hear the likes of Israel Kamakawiwoole, Kealii Reichel, and Hapa:

Mountain Apple Company

When my friend Gogo found out about Lei Day, she decided to set aside a spot on Juicy just for celebrating this ^_^

Okay, and now for those details about what is being worn in the pics above…

Love Soul usagi

As I’d mentioned in my previous post, lately I’ve been wanting to take advantage of SL by dressing my av in ways I wouldn’t dress in RL.

There’s a shop that you can find in a lot of the Japanese sims called Love Soul, where they have all sorts of adorable things like hairpins, manicures, and headbands. The thing I really loved at their shop, though, were the two rabbit outfits. ^^

Love Soul I

Yes, this costume is extremely primmy because of all the fur attachments. Under the prim attachments are plain white cover-ups on the underpants, undershirt, and socks layers. The paw attachments that go on the hands are actually sold separately, but these items are so inexpensive you probably won’t even think twice about buying those to go with the outfit.

Love Soul II

Worth every damn prim, imo! Look at that lil cottontail and the pink pawpads. 😀

Love Soul III

The Love Soul MokoMoko Hand and Rabbit Wear items come in both white and black.

Fireflies

There’s a new kid on the block at La Reina, the sim where my store is located! Okay, not a literal “kid” but rather, a store called Fireflies. I’d never heard of it before, but I’ve since made myself quite familiar with it. :p

Aside from the fact that the dresses at Fireflies all come from the same designer, Novella Voom, there is a common denominator shared by all of the clothes offered there that strikes you immediately: they are all sexy. Provocatively sexy; elegantly sexy; sweetly sexy… I’m sure I could come up with several other adjectives ending with the “-ly” suffix but I think you get the point.

The textures are beautifully done, too. My favorite from Fireflies, the Scarlet, is a flirty red dress that seems to shimmer, and the clever highlighting and shading on the shirt layer makes it look as if the dress is reflecting light. Then there’s the sheer and lacy Isobel dress with it’s use of clean alpha, which you can take advantage of by wearing yet more lacy underthings; or if you want to be truly daring, just wear the dress by itself and let it show off that lovely skin of yours. ^_^

Here are several of the dresses that my friends Wilma Delgado and Gorgeous Yongho and I picked up while browsing the shop (clicking the images will take you to their respective flickr pages where you can view a larger size; credits and SLURLs are at the end of the post):

Fireflies Scarlet

Fireflies Isobel black

Fireflies Isobel red

Fireflies Isobel white

Fireflies Vivienne

Fireflies Eden

Fireflies Krystal

Fireflies Romy

I should mention that everything in this store is very affordable. In fact, the last four dresses shown above are all just L$1 each; last time I checked, there were six of these “dollarbie” dresses available.

J’s shitkicker boots

Okay, so these aren’t really called shitkicker boots by the designer; it just sounds cool to me and it’s a phrase that I know my friend Vivi would use. :p

Here are some zoomed-in shots of the boots. (Btw, I’m using the angel3 and angel10 poses from the Juicy Angel pose set that Gogo recently released, as well as the naughty2 pose from the Juicy Naughty set. They were perfect for showcasing these boots up close and personal, and at 1L for each set you really have no excuse for not having them in your inventory!)

Clicking on the following images will take you to their respective flickr pages where you can view larger sizes; credits and SLURLs are at the end of this post.

Js Work Boots

Js Work Boots 02

Before I say anything else about the shoes at J’s, there are two caveats that you should be aware of first: (1) there are no demos available, and (2) these shoes run a bit small, even in their “larger” sizes.

These sculpty shoes are the Work Boots from J’s, located in the Tsukishima sim. Creator JB Gazov has done a great job with the sculpty shape of these boots and has taken care with the textures on these, from the upper parts to the brown leather on the flexi laces and the realistic brass of the grommets through which the laces weave. The two different colors of the rear pull-on loops are an interesting feature — the left shoe’s loop is red while the right shoe’s loop is brown. Finishing it off are thick, detailed outsoles that look like they’re ready to provide your avi with some serious traction.

I chose the flashier red color, of course, since red is my favorite color. 🙂 If that’s not your thing, however, then perhaps you’ll be interested in the more traditional black and brown versions.

The poster in the store says these boots are unisex but from what I saw, there’s no way these boots would fit most of the male avatars that I personally know; as I stated above the shoes at J’s run pretty small. (Machete bought the western boots, and despite the fact that different sized prims are included in the folder, he had to bring down his leg muscle and body thickness sliders in order to be able to fit into the largest versions.)

When I saw the red boots, I immediately thought of my Priestly Vestments coat from Amerie’s Naughty that’s been sitting in my inventory for several months. I love the coat but I’ve never really pulled it out of my digital closet and worn it for a reasonable amount of time… until now. ^_^ It’s a lot of red, for sure, but I felt the boots worked with the almost cartoonish attitude and drama of the coat. Since I want to keep the focus of this post on shoes, I won’t go into detail about the coat, but you can still read the excellent write-up Morrigan Repine did earlier this month at Style Hotline.

Js Work Boots 03

Although these boots have a chunky and somewhat masculine look to them, you can definitely work a feminine angle with these by choosing the right items. In the example above, I chose to offset the bulkier shape of the boots by emphasizing a sleek leg line, visually elongating it with black tights and a body-hugging mini-skirt. Topping it off is a cute and decidedly feminine half coat.

J’s features more than just work boots, of course. There are several other sculpty boots that are worth mentioning; while I would have loved to have bought all of them I exercised self-restraint and chose to buy the backribbon boots. 😀

Js Ribbon Boots

Js Ribbon Boots 02

Ladies, before I go any further, I feel I must warn you again right now: these boots were definitely made with a slender girl in mind. I think it has to do with the fact that most Japanese female avatars (at least the ones I’ve seen around) are all on the tinier side. After experimenting with a variety of body shapes, I’ve concluded that if you’ve got a body thickness upwards of 20 or if you’ve got the leg muscle slider set beyond 55, your avi WILL break through the largest non-modifiable sculpty prims.

I really like the height of the heels and the slim look of these boots, which is aided by the solid black coloring. A couple of elements accentuate the color block: zipper details that are part of the texture (not prims) run all the way down the insides of each boot, and on the back of the legs are brass grommets and black leather laces tied in a bow.

As soon as I saw the boots on my avi, I decided I wanted an outfit that would emphasize the leg shape even further. I chose a longish all-black sweater and a black mini-skirt. These two items, like the boots, are completely black in coloring but what really makes them visually interesting are the great cowl neck shape and the wrinkly-looking texture of the skirt. Finishing it off and providing a little bit of contrast is a colorful reddish hairstyle. ^_^

Overall, I’m happy with my purchases, especially the red Work Boots. I’m impressed with the quality of JB’s sculpties and will definitely be keeping an eye out for his future products. While I’m thankful that my new boots fit my avi without too much hassle, however, my only complaint is that I wish there were demos and and that there was more consideration for larger sized avatars. If your avi has a build similar to mines, then you should have no problem fitting these as well, but if your avi is somewhat larger then unfortunately I’d have to advise against spending on these, especially since they are not transferrable.

:sey and !_Ce_Cubic effect

As I’d said at the end of yesterday’s post, I had more goodies to blog from :sey.

Clicking the images will take you to their respective flickr pages where you can view larger versions. SLURLs and credit info are at the end of this post.

sey tidori

This eye-catching number is called the tidori 2 coat. While one would think this dramatic mix of patent leather, lace, silver metal parts, patterned material, and a generous helping of black feathers (!) would seem visually cacophonous, it’s all actually pulled together very nicely by limiting the color palette to black and white.

Since the coat is already so visually engaging, I kept the remaining part of the outfit simple with skinny black pants and black ankle boots.

sey tidori 02

The coat features a belted flexi-prim skirt, prim sleeve cuffs lined with black feathers, two pouch attachments that go on either upper arm, a sculpted prim collar, and a hoodie that’s given a black patent leather texture and more black feathers. A closer inspection of the upper arm pouches reveal a leather zipper slider, white lace, and silver prim buckles.

sey tidori 01

The upper part of the coat is on the system jacket layer. I noticed that the texture stretches a bit over the breast area, causing the texture to look a little muddy in that area, but it’s a very minor quibble of mine that I can easily overlook. This coat has so much flair and attitude, it’s hard not to love it. 😀

Loved it so much, I went and splurged on the tidori pink coat as well:

sey tidori pink

There are other color options available as well: red, blue, yellow, and two others that I’ve forgotten (sorry). The coat also comes in red plaid as well as an interesting “black wave” pattern.

cubic effect 02

cubic effect 03

This next jacket from Ce Cubic Effect features a cable knit texture that shows up very clearly on the sculpty prims it’s been applied to.

The first thing that grabs your attention about this jacket is it’s incredible shape. Thanks to sculpties, designers have been creating prim attachments with realistic shapes for collars, sleeves, wrist cuffs and the like, and they’re often used to enhance clothing that goes on the usual system layers. A few designers, such as June Dion from Bare Rose, have been taking sculpty clothing even further, crafting entire outfits out of prims. mirai Jun of Ce Cubic Effect seems to be following suit; her store inventory include coats and an entire dress made of prims.

I tried to get shots of this jacket from all sorts of angles so that the great shape of this piece shows through. It’s been endowed with a figure-enhancing blouson shape, something that’s simply not possible on a system layer clothing article. the same pouf-ish effect is used on the sleeves so that it looks as if you’ve pushed the sleeves up your arms slightly. The neckline is also given a great sculpty collar shape, creating an opportunity to show off some of the more dramatic necklaces you’ve got stashed in your inventory.

The areas where you see the material “gather” are actually where the sculpty prims end, exposing the system jacket layer texture that lies beneath it.

A word of warning: people with somewhat bustier/thicker avis may want to see this jacket in person before making the purchase. My own avatar, while not the tiniest one around, is definitely on the slight side of the sliders and in spite of this fact I still needed to edit my shape. Yes, the prims on this jacket are all modifiable, but for some reason mirai chose to give them mod/no copy/transfer permissions, so I was hesitant about editing the prims without having the insurance of a copied backup first.

What I needed to edit were my avi’s breasts. Yes, they’re not exactly large to begin with :-p but it wasn’t the size that I had to edit; rather, what I found I needed to do was increase the cleavage a little bit so that they wouldn’t poke out through the sides of the jacket prims. Here’s a picture showing my avi wearing the jacket with and without the edit:

cubic effect 01

The system jacket layer has got my avi covered, but the difference in the clarity of texture rendering between the jacket layer and the prim is quite noticeable and I didn’t care for it. A quick adjustment on a single shape slider was all that was needed, though, so I’m quite happy with how it turned out. 😀

What I’m wearing…

The versatile White Lacy Shirt at <3 Cupcakes

White Lacy Shirt 01 I am a fan of mixing and matching numerous clothing articles from different designers; in addition to being just plain fun, it’s a way to get creative while expressing your own individual tastes and style.

As a result of this penchant for mixing up outfits, I’ve found that I’ve there are a handful of basic wardrobe pieces that I continually gravitate towards — items like the torn jeans miniskirt from the Last Call Yelena set; my Tres Blah jeans with the oh-so-perfectly shaded derrière; the Naughty Designs classic set of crop sweaters (that are modifiable! w00t for being able to control sleeve lengths); my continually growing collection of sneakers (they look like RL Chucks except for the logo) from KK Outfitters; the basic hoop earrings from Paper Couture (they’re free!); etc. They’re all incredibly versatile, enabling me to build my outfits in a myriad different ways.

I’ve recently added another item to my little list of clothing essentials: the White Lacy Shirt from ❤ Cupcakes! by Mimi Coral. (She’s also got lots of cute dresses — oh, soooo many sweet dresses, you end up feeling like a kid in a candy store!! — but that’s a whole ‘nother story, heh.) It’s incredibly versatile, and not only because of the basic white coloring. The shirt comes on all three system layers plus the underpants layer for tucking under the waistband of your pants and skirts, making it a super flexible and thus great choice for layering with other pieces. The fact that this shirt is also modifiable and copyable just adds even more value to this bargain of a shirt, because now you can create tinted copies. ^_^

The styling of the shirt itself is basically sweet, innocent, and romantic, what with the high collar and lacy front… totally makes me think of Anne of Green Gables stuff. :p The style is hardly limiting, however; you can still pull a diverse amount of looks out of the shirt. Here are a few outfits I was able to put together (credits and SLURLS are at the end of the post); they all use the same shirt (as well as the same Nicola Red Cameo locket from Caroline’s Jewelry; for some reason I felt compelled to keep pairing the two) but I feel they’re dissimilar enough so that you don’t “feel” like you’re recycling the same look over and over:

Outfit 1

White Lacy Shirt 02

Back when I bought the shirt at ❤ Cupcakes!, I also picked up a 2-skirt set that comes in pink and grey. The skirts have a very feminine feel, what with the hip-accentuating buttons along the side and all the gathers and ruffles in the texture. Offsetting this nicely are the dark browns and leaner lines of the boots and the tweed jacket (which has that great torn detail that I love ^_^). Topping it off is a smart-looking capped hairstyle, and I added a turquoise bangle for a just a teensy-weensy subtle contrast. 😀

Outfit 2

White Lacy Shirt 03

In this next outfit, I again layered the shirt under a jacket, but sort of reversed things — this time, it’s the top half that takes on a very feminine look with a hairstyle that is long, wavy, and shiny, as well as a jacket piece that takes on a very feminine form with it’s puffy sleeves and midriff-baring cut. Balancing things out again are the same brown boots paired off with figure-hugging faded jeans.

Outfit 3

White Lacy Shirt 04

After the girly skirts and jacket I wanted a leaner and sexier look, so out came yet another essential piece — the thigh-skimming little black mini skirt. Completing the look is a dark red leather jacket and black pantyhose, along with some rather naughty-looking black platform boots that cling to the legs. In keeping with the somewhat edgy look is the short red hairstyle that deliberately brushes some hair over the right eye. Note: I felt that wearing prim lashes with this look was imperative but texture weirdness resulted in the right eye’s lashes poking through the hair; I remedied this by modifying the set of lashes so that only the left eye would be adorned. (Don’t forget the rule of thumb; ALWAYS make a backup copy before editing!)

Outfit 4

White Lacy Shirt 05

It would be remiss of me to not pair this shirt with a skirt that’s equally romantic-looking. (Shorter avatars, please note that the prims on this particular skirt are somewhat longish; the body shape worn in this image is 5’9″ and the skirt fell to near the ankles.) Because I felt there’s already so much going on with the full shape and texture of the skirt, I refrained from adding any other jewelry and the only other adornments are the red manicure/pedicure on the glove/socks layers, as well as the simple sandals.

Outfit 5

White Lacy Shirt 06

Last but not least: a rather prim and proper yet dainty look that would work at the office. The slim black skirt, black seamed stockings, and solid black plain pumps create a nice long and leggy line. What keeps the outfit from venturing into overly-stuffy secretary territory is the bolero jacket that remains open and thus leaves most of the torso exposed, and that wonderfully feminine hairstyle. There’s so much to love about this hairstyle, not the least of which is the incredibly life-like healthy-hair texture. The waves are nice and full, the bangs are a great length, the double-stranded headband is a nice touch, and I LOVE that the ears aren’t covered, meaning that you can show off your earrings and still get to keep a great length in the back.

So there you have it, five different outfits. They all have their own unique feel despite having been built around the same, very basic piece. The White Lacy Shirt is incredibly easy to work with because of the thoughtful layering options, and at L$75 it’s practically a steal. ^_^
