The Last of Us

Uber’s new round is upon us, and what a fantastic round it is!

With the theme of an apocalypse, Uber’s designers have seriously dug into their creative outlets and pulled out some fantastic creations ranging from clothing, to furniture and even set pieces!

This jacket from Xin, which is actually a male jacket, works well as a unisex piece for females with a smaller chest, It comes with a fantastic variety of options in a sleek, well designed HUD, and I spent around 10 minutes just playing with the colour options to figure out what I liked best.

The Ukai’s set by Maxi Gossamer is absolutely fantastic and works perfectly with the bang on trend boots by Deadwool that have filled an empty space in my inventory. I love them.

I’ll be sharing pictures of my other looks over on my Flickr over the next couple of days, but in the mean time check out this sneak preview from yours truly of the Uber sim this round!

Happy shopping!

Clueless ft. Xanthe

Hi, guys! Today I’m bringing you my first collaboration post, and what better person to work alongside than the fabulous Xanthe!

The both of us have been speaking about doing this post for a while, and today everything seemed to fall into place when we both realised we were wearing 90s-esque looks! It’s always such a fun experience working alongside another blogger as it brings out a further sense of creativity to create something truly special and different from the norm.

My look was originally inspired by Phoebe from Friends, but seems to have morphed into an adult’s version of something a kid would have worn in the fabulously awesome 90s. Perhaps I’m partial, I was born in ’92, after all. I don’t miss those god awful skorts though. Never, ever.

The hair that I’m wearing also wasn’t planned. I originally intended to wear the Hall hair from LeLutka’s latest release, but Kavar Cleanslate sent out the blogger copies of this beautiful updo that will be released on The Arcade’s Anniversary round, September 1st. There’s a couple of sparkley versions to play for, so make sure to head down and gacha your little heart out for those!

I’ve had an awesome time working on this little project with Xanthe today, and am looking forward to working with other bloggers in the future!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Chelsea

Today’s post was inspired by my friend from the UK and I chatting about British reality show, ‘Made in Chelsea’ which follows a group of wealthy young people throughout their lives in the ‘fancy’ quarter of London, documenting their dramas and relationships.

With Vive Nine’s new collection release yesterday, the new pieces available at the store seemed like a perfect opportunity to doll up and shoot a couple of city pictures. They have a plethora of new items available, ranging from shoes through to accessories, hair, and clothing galore. They’re situated in a fabulous Rodeo Drive-esque area, complete with other little boutique shops to check out whilst you’re there.

SLink also released a new updated for their mesh Physique body today. There had been a bug which made it look as if you’d been slashed across the throat, leaving your head bobbing around on its own, disconnected from the rest of the body. Siddean fixed this issue incredibly quickly, however, and I am now extremely happy to be using the newly updated HUD and skin options.

Dr. Facilier

The Fantasy Collective’s theme this month is New Orleans, and as soon as I looked around at the wonderful creations this month I knew exactly what it was that I wanted to do a blog post on today: Disney.

There’s no princesses here, however. We’re heading on to The Other Side with a outfit inspired by Dr. Facilier, the Voodoo doctor.

Putting together this look actually proved to be quite difficult due to one teeny tiny annoying piece that seems to be hidden away in the darkest corners of the SL market- waistcoats. I think it’s a vest in American terminology, but those little things that men wear with three-piece suits. Dr. Facilier wears a purple one, but unless I wanted to wear a base clothing layer (impossible as I now wear SLink’s physique all the time) it wasn’t something I could do. ISON saved me at the last minute with their Razzle vest that I found on the Marketplace. Thank you, Harry Hyx!

Finally, I’d just like to add a little bit about these shoes. I was sent these a couple of weeks back by Bushu to review, but at the time didn’t have the SLink high feet. They’re materials enabled and are super cute, I’ve been wearing them around in their fabulous multitude of colours, but I thought a simple black worked well for this look, considering I don’t look as good in spats as the real Dr. Facilier does.

I hope you enjoy today’s look, I’m incredibly happy with how it turned out!

Summer Wine

Well, another rezday over and done with! Thank you all the the lovely birthday wishes, and I hope that you all enjoyed looking at my 6 Year Collage over on Flickr! If you didn’t, you can see it here!

Today’s post is a little bit later than I should have posted it, but I let myself have a blogging-free day since it was my special day, haha. Excuses, excuses, I know.

Truth’s new releases this week are Lilith, pictured above, and Nissa. I’m never usually a huge fan of this cutesy-cherub-like hairstyle, but it actually looks very nice and is superbly well made. I was pleasantly surprised. Nissa is a fishtail braid that hangs around the front and almost has a very wind-blown feel to it, so would be perfect for outdoorsy pictures on the beach or in the forest as we draw closer to the Autumn season.

P.S, I finally made the transition over to the SLink mesh body! My friend Gogo of JuicyBomb told me that to overcome some issues that the alpha system doesn’t cover, she compensates by deforming her body with the avatar sliders to allow the clothes to fit properly. I tested this out and was pleasantly surprised.

LeLutka doesn’t cover body appliers for the SLink parts so I shopped around for a close match and am super happy with the Glam Affair America tone that I picked up. I actually prefer it to the LeLutka body texture as it has many more highlights along with a pink tone to the skin as opposed to the greyish purple undertones of the Hush tone on the Kit skin.

Our Time

Goodness me am I finally happy to post this. These looks and images have been the bane of my existence for the past day, hence me being slightly AWOL. Alright, that’s slightly dramatic, yes. But it’s true! The result, however, I love.

I initially wanted to share this with you all on my rezday, tomorrow (Tuesday 19th Aug) but I figured that this post doesn’t actually really have anything to do with a rezday, so yeah, you’re getting it early! Lucky you.

This post is a continuation of my music video look recreations I’ve been doing lately, but a whole lot bigger. Today you’re getting three looks in one! And, goodness me, trying to spend the early hours of the morning attempting to move myself from pose to pose and change outfits without my camera moving seemed like an impossible feat, and it had definitely defeated me until I woke up this morning and realised I have a Malt (male alt) lying around. If you aren’t much into photography you might understand the problems I had, but if not let me tell you, I nearly threw this look out the window. I’m glad I persevered.

Lily Allen has been one of my favourite artists for a long, long time. Straight laced, sarcastic and unafraid to speak her mind, her music often parodies our society and its views on body image and the like. In her recent music video for ‘Our Time’, Lily plays three, well, four (a woman dressed in a hotdog costume) women all with their own styles going out into town for a night out. They ride along in the back of a taxi, drink, get drunk and don’t pay their cab fee. It’s fab, really. Very true to a London night out.

I’ve tried my best to recreate these looks as well as I could. Slightly different to my usual set up, each style card is listed below as opposed to being at the top of the post, as I didn’t want to crowd the header image with walls of text.

I hope you like today’s post and images. Let me know if you would like me to do more challenging looks like this in the future. I certainly enjoyed it a lot!

Break Free

Hey, everyone! TGIF! Yay! I

I’ve been out of the loop with pop music for a little whilst, existing in a bubble of acoustic covers and bands like Fleetwood Mac and Lykke Li, but I have adored Ariana Grande for a while now. She’s absolutely adorable.

Her new music video, which draws upon and parodies many SciFi culture elements was crying out to have her looks recreated in Second Life.

It took me absolutely ages to get this right, and playing with different hair attachments to get the anti-gravity feel and not that I’m just floating around in mid air, but I think I did a pretty good job!

I hope that you have a fantastic weekend, let loose and, ha, break free!
