Pathfinder


If you haven't yet picked up the Yulia skin for LeLutka heads by Lumae, you're in for a deal! This gorgeous skin comes in ten tones and will be on sale at The Avenue from March 1st to March 26th! Each tone will be a discounted price of L$245, and includes body appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega. Each tone also has multiple eyebrow colors AND maybe my favorite feature, a freckled version as well! Check out the item spotlights below for a closer look.

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - LeLutka "Stella"
Skin - Lumae "Yulia" @ The Avenue
Hair - Blues. "Aries"
Pants/Boots - Moon_Sha "Assassin" gacha set
Gloves - Moon Elixir "Valhalla" gacha set
Bra/Chain Bra - Moon Elixir "Athena" gacha set @ Fantasy Gacha Carnival
Cloak - FATEplay (SL Marketplace) "Cloak - Lanne"
Eyes - {S0NG} "Aimi~ Honey Eye" @ The Kawaii Project
Pose - Made by me!


Item Spotlight : Lumae "Yulia"
I can't ever stay away from the loveliness that is Lumae freckles, but what I really want to talk about for this particular skin is how nicely the lip color complements the skin. Rather than just being simple recolors where the valued were tweaked, these skins are reworked so that the freckles, blush, lips, et cetera all perfectly go together; that way, none of them are washed out and no detail is too jarring. The Yulia skins, along with everything I listed in the intro, come with EIGHT different lipstick options. Every single one is super pretty, but I liked the lips as-is so I chose not to wear one. (I did find that I can apply them to my LeLutka head with other skins, though, so that's a big added value right there!)



Item Spotlight : FATEplay "Cloak - Lanne"
This cloak is *amazing*. If you need a cloak, buy this bad boy! It has male and female sizes, is animated (and Bento! So it reacts to character movement), has a color HUD, *AND* a style HUD (I was fond of the tattered version myself, but there are eight options total. At L$495, this is a great deal, since I'm not sure I will ever need another cloak.


Item Spotlight : Moon Elixir "Athena - 1 - Lara - Chain Bra - RARE"
Still at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which got extended due to sim issues, the Athena set by Moon Elixir is pretty much exactly what I've come to expect from that brand - nicely textured, wonderfully detailed, an increasingly perfect fit, and something unique that I didn't know I needed until I saw it! The machine is in Maitreya sizes only, and is L$75/pull. The pieces can all be easily mixed and matched, and there's something for us warrior goddesses in five tones!

I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long



If you weren't excited for this round of The Arcade yet.. one, what's wrong with you?! And two, this set by Sweet Thing. is one VERY good reason to start counting down the days! The machine is going to be L$75 per play, but with the gorgeous colors, scripting on the key that goes on your back (it really winds up!), and animated mechanical heart in the corset, you cannot go wrong playing this one. The set *is* Maitreya exclusive, but good news! If you really love the ball jointed tattoo, it does have Omega appliers as well. Check out the short video clips below to see the gorgeous moving parts in action!

The Ritual

This picture I did just for me! A couple of the things used are from current events, but I really do love fishing around in my super disorganized inventory for beautiful things I forgot I owned! 

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - Catwa "Kimberly"
Skin - Lumae "Gunnr" @ Genre
Hair - ( r e d ) m i n t "No.38'15"
Top - FDD Stories "*Deidra* Bra Rare"
Skirt - FDD Stories "*Selena* Skirt"
Choker - Moon Elixir "Raven Skull Choker" (old gift, not released in store)
Necklace - [The Plastik] "Tooth Necklace" @ Fantasy Gacha Carnival
Headdress - [The Plastik] "Daemonus Headdress Rare" @ Fantasy Gacha Carnival
Pose - BranwenAlcyone (me!)

Item Spotlight : Lumae "Gunnr"
If you compare this tone of Gunnr to T4 Fawn (used in my Shieldmaiden post earlier this week) you can see how versatile this skin really is! No matter what your fantasy or roleplaying need is, Gunnr is a must-have! Each of the 8 tones are still L$125 at Genre, so don't delay! That is a fantastic price for a skin that comes with Catwa head appliers, as well as appliers for TMP, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega! (AND a three pack of coordinating Leevi elf ears!)

Item Spotlight : [The Plastik] "Daemonus Headdress Rare"
LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY! In true Plastik fashion, this gorgeously designed and textured headpiece comes with a *huge* HUD - customization is everything! I had some trouble pulling this ( I knew I needed it in my SecondLife!) but the machine is L$50/pull at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and is chock full of other amazing items for your roleplay needs!

Shieldmaiden


This newest round of Genre opened today at noon, and you know I was right there on time! Okay, I was early, and the security bot got real tired of my crap real fast. Anyway! I picked up a few goodies to mix with some things I already had in my inventory for this look. There are also several gifts available if you wear the Genre group tag, which is free to join. For an up close peek at what I got, check out the item spotlights below!

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - Catwa "Kimberly"
Skin - Lumae "Gunnr" @ Genre
Hair - [Runaway Hair] "Rondra Hair"
Outfit - Moon Elixir "Caput Draconis" @ We <3 Roleplay
Shoulder Straps - Moon Elixir "Valhalla"
Bra - Moon Elixir "Athena"
Vest - [XIV] "Fur Vest" @ Genre
Shield - [Ab.Fab] "Ginfaxi Shield" @ Genre
Necklace - [The Forge] "Boadicea's Necklace"
Belt - [The Forge] "Boadicea's Belt"
Axe - FLECHA "Mercenary Axe"
Blood - Suicidal Unborn "Nosebleed"


Item Spotlight : Lumae "Gunnr"
If you had a hard time choosing between the 8 tones Lumae offers of the Gunnr skin at Genre, you aren't alone! I stood at the event demo-ing for at least 20 minutes. The eyes hadow is superb (I LOVE dark smoky eyes) and the face paint makes this skin stand out from any other! Gunnr is another Catwa exclusive release, which basically means Gunnr is one more reason to buy a Catwa head! On top of being gorgeous, each of the 8 tones is only L$125 (!!!) for the duration of the event, so if you are torn between multiple tones like me you should grab more than one!

Lumae "Catwa - Ruby - T4 Fawn / Gunnr"


Item Spotlight : [XIV] "Fur Vest"
Perfect for keeping you warn during those long nights on the longboat, [XIV]'s Fur Vest comes in 4 color options, at L$224 each. The vest comes in 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, a Maitreya, and a standard fitmesh size. The Maitreya size fit my body really well, with enough space in between it and my avatar to have a full outfit with no unsightly clipping issues!
Pictured:
[XIV] "Genre: Fur Vest - Brown"


Item Spotlight : [Ab.Fab] "Ginfaxi Shield"
Just L$188, this gorgeous shield is a delight! It comes with a sheathed back carry position, and a drawn arm carry position - and it's very easy to switch back and forth! This sturdy little beastie is also resizeable, so avatars of any size can be total badasses carrying this bad boy around. The Ginfaxi Shield features interesting carved designs on the wooden shield itself, and gorgeous metalwork banding. A girl's best friend!

"Like all dreams, well, I'm afraid this can't last forever."

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - Catwa "Kimberly"
Skin - Lumae "Catwa - Ella - T8 Mocha / Enchanted" @ Enchantment
Hair - Pink Hustler "8056"
Wings - PFC "Fae"
Crown - SPELL "The Crown {Silver}" @ The Chapter Four
Dress - Jackalope "Cinder's Gown / White" @ Enchantment
Wand - Jackalope "Fairy Godmother Wand" @ Enchantment

Photo Set - Whole Wheat Creations "Through the Looking Glass"


Item Spotlight: Lumae "Ella"
This skin deserved a second spotlight, so here is a different tone than the one I posted yesterday! T8 Mocha is currently the darkest natural skintone that Lumae offers, and this one doesn't disappoint! I am wearing zero additional makeup, simply because this skin doesn't need it. The eye shadow, blush, and lip color complement the skin perfectly. At just L$495 a tone, Ella is a steal! This skin is exclusive to Catwa heads, but includes body appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, Omega, and Omega Petite.

Lumae "Catwa - Ella - T8 Mocha / Enchanted"

Item Spotlight: Jackalope "Cinder's Gown"
How lovely is this dress? The inner girly girl in me HAD to have it, I love the super full skirt so much. *AND* this one is a common! I'll have to keep trying for the rare blue version as well. This gorgeous gown fit my Maitreya body without me needing to fiddle with my alpha HUD at all. ALSO, the texture is subtly animated - those sparkles really sparkle! The Jackalope machine is L$75/pull, but there are quite a few real treasures in there!

I Can't Believe You Found Me!

(Cinderella pt 1)

Enchantment opens tomorrow, February 11, 2017

My favorite item from this round of Enchantment is this FLAWLESS skin by Lumae. I have been completely won over by the soft eyeshadow and lipstick, and the super flattering shade of blush. More Enchantment posts to come in the next few days, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out my item spotlights below while you wait for that TP HUD to get you into the event!

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - Catwa "Kimberly" Bento head
Skin - Catwa "Catwa - Ella - T2 Cameo / Enchanted" @ Enchantment
Hair - Magika "Fool for Love"
Dress - Sweet Lies "Renata Dress XXS - Sweet Lies Original 3 Common"
Tray - Sweet Lies "Foods Tray - Sweet Lies Original 11 Rare"
Slipper - SPELL "Crystal Slipper" @ The Chapter Four


Item Spotlight: Skin - Lumae "Ella"
Again, Lumae dazzles with a skin that is beautifully detailed! As is the current Lumae trend, this skin is specifically painted to complement a specific brand of mesh head - this time around it's for Catwa heads. The Ella skin comes in all 8 of Lumae's beautiful new natural skintones. The skin demos are available in the Lumae group notices (join fee is L$1) if you want to try them out before you get to the event!

Lumae "Catwa - Ella - T2 Cameo / Enchanted"

Item Spotlight: SPELL "Crystal Slipper"
What luck! SPELL currently has a fairytale-theme decor and accessories gacha at The Chapter Four. And what girl doesn't need a glass slipper to display in her own little castle? The machine is $L75/pull, but don't let that stop you! Every item in the set is well worth owning.
Pictured:
SPELL "SPELL : Crystal Slipper"



Item Spotlight: Sweet Lies "Foods Tray"
I just want to say that the Renata gacha at the Sweet Lies mainstore is a STEAL. Definitely try the demo first, as unlike most Sweet Lies gachas this one is in standard sizing instead of fitmesh, but beyond that... go pull crazy! This machine is only $L15 a pull!!! This tray full of noms is one of the rares, and comes with a partial pose - your arm will hold the tray without interfering with the rest of your AO! The arm pose looks super natural too, not stiff or unrealistic at all.

The Season of Love in SecondLife

What could be better than a new love in a new season? I love seeing new love blossom in SecondLife - though I am happily married, so the Spring tradition of falling in love is more about renewal for me.
It's not often that I wear pink, but with these gorgeous new gachas goodies to offset it, I don't mind BEING pink for a bit! The Eirtae - Rubrae skin by Lumae is perfectly pink, delicately detailed, and is such a soft shade. Be sure to check out my item spotlights below for more reviews!

Body - Maitreya "Lara"
Head - Catwa "Kimberly" Bento head
Skin - Lumae "Eirtae - Rubrae"
Hair - Taketomi "Corrine"
Wings - Lassitude & Ennui "Seraphim" @ The Gacha Garden
Bra, Corset, Panties - Blueberry "Angelberry" @ The Epiphany
Shoes - Sweet Thing. "Bath'kol" 
Particles - Cole's Corner "Cosmic Consciousness"
Item Spotlight: Blueberry "Angelberry"
As everyone has come to expect from Blueberry, this set fits like a DREAM on my Maitreya body. Once again Blue caters to a wide variety of bodies: this machine boasts sizes in Maitreya, Belleza (Isis, Freya, and Venus!), and Slink (Hourglass and Physique!). At 50L a pull you really can't go wrong.

#14 Blueberry - Angelberry - Common - Panties - Pure
#19 Blueberry - Angelberry - Common - Corset - Pure

Item Spotlight: Sweet Thing. "Bath'kol"
These beauties are from the December 2017 round of The Arcade. While the entire Bath'kol set is phenomenal, the shoes are my favorite part. Chunky and cute, with just the right amount of shine and detail... I made sure to get one in every color. And since they're a common, it isn't hard to do! The gacha is 75L a pull and Maitreya exclusive (SO glad I have a Maitreya for this one!
Pictured:
Sweet Thing. Bath'kol Wrapped Heels - Purity

Item Spotlight: Lumae "Eirtae - Rubrae"
The pastel fantasy tones of Eirtae are arguably my favorites by Lumae... though that opinion changes with my mood. The wide variety of tones Lumae provides will make any skin lover happy! This skin in particular has appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, LAQ, Slink Visage, TMP Omega, LOGO (Alex, Chloe, Sadie) heads as well as body appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP, Omega, and Omega Petite. There are also some ear and mouth appliers AND a three pack of matching Leevi elf ears as well as the system skin. At just L$850, this skin is an amazing value for an amazing skin! I mean, just look at that cute belly button!

Item Spotlight: Lassitude & Ennui "Seraphim"
These gorgeous wings can currently be found at The Gacha Garden. These babies are BENTO - they come with a simple but lovely HUD to control flapping speed and with several static poses (great for photos!). They are also AO responsive - they flap realistically when you fly and hover! If you thought it couldn't get any better - they are modifiable, so you can resize, reposition, and recolor to your heart's content! The machine is 75L a pull, and while the rares are quite nice you really CAN'T lose on this machine. Every color is easily worth the 75L.
