Magic Ride to Jodhpur Blue


   I go a little nuts every three months for Arcade. I don't make a wishlist. I make an attack plan with not only what I want but how I plan on going about getting it. Will I pull until I get the entire set, pull only 10 and yardsale the rest, or do a few pulls and be happy with whatever I get. Every machine has its own plan that I meticulously organize days before Arcade opens. Then I follow my plan and sell my duplicates in my yard sale, Kirsten's Gacha Garden

      I almost have everything on my list and its only day two. I spent 13K and have made back a little over 7K in the first two days while getting pretty close (9 commons and 4 Rares shy) of 13 full sets and a plethora of a few wanted items from particular machines. I love Arcade and Gacha in general. I see it as nothing but totally fun. I don't understand people that hate it. I just don't get it at all. My experience with it is always so much fun! When I pull the rares I wanted- which I do pull most of them- or find the item sitting there in a yard sale that I have been LOOKING for or delight in people that can't get into Arcade finding the items on THEIR wishlists at MY yardsale; It is all just wonderful to me!


     Ok, so let's talk Arcade fashion. There are a lot of great fashion items this round as well as home and decor. I have a little bit of both in this post. I am wearing the entire silver set from Enfant Terrible including the two Rare items (crown and belt). I adore this set and the crown so much. Everything except the "dress" which is more like a bodysuit imo. It is lovely with beautiful textures, but I did not demo it first and I was unable to get it to work with either my Physique or my Lara mesh bodies. Frankly I have not seen my regular avatar body in almost a year and it scared me. The photo processing time involved is also not worth wearing it to me either and I still feel like my parts (elbows, wrists, shoulders) are gross after lots of meticulous work on them. They were so much worse before however. Mesh bodies have spoiled me and I really can't think of an outfit worth giving them up. So it might just be me and my shape, but I would definitely say demo this if you plan on trying to wear it with a mesh body. The jewelry in this set, however, is simply stunning in every way. Flawless!

I am visiting the Jodhpur Blue home on the Zaara sim. She has it all set up so you can go see it. It is really gorgeous. The colors are so vibrant and the ethnic flair is unmistakable.

Mabelle


     Eudora 3D has this cute skirt and tube top outfit available at The Liaison Collaborative in six colors. Like everything this brand does, its very well made in both mesh and textures. I think its really cute for Spring- which I am totally ready for. The outfit has a lace/crochet overlay so I paired it with the Eudora 3D Jenn shoes. 


      I also wanted to highlight the hair combs I am wearing. I tried to find a pose that would show the combs and the outfit, but I am just not as good at that as my friend Alicia. You ever notice how she always seems to show the items at just the right angles and perspective, even multiple items? Anyway my hair combs are new from Miamai at Shiny Shabby. They are in a gacha machine which is great for me since I love gacha. If you are not a fan though- thats ok because every hair comb is seriously gorgeous so play at least once and whatever you get I know you will love it. This new hair from Truth, Dulce, is perfect for the hair combs too.

Can you handle the rainbow? Slink 2 is here!


I am so super excited about the new Slink update. All of the mesh parts are updated- Physique, Visage, Hands, and Feet. I can't decide what new features I like best because there are so many great ones. Here are a few new features that stand out to me:
  • You can paint each fingernail and toenail seperately.
  • There are twice as many alpha cuts. At 88 alpha cuts you will be able to wear clothes with ease.
  • The shape of the physique body is overall curvier and more defined and I love it!
  • You can save 8 alpha cuts that you use most often right in the HUD.
  • The hands and feet are now in the same ultilities HUD and from there you can control nails, polish, tattoo, stockings, and gloves.
  • The feet and hands are now fitmesh and only one size. The wrists and ankles are still sized but intead of different feet the sizes are controlled in the same utilities HUD. 
  • You can wear different feet which will let you wear different foot tattoos on each foot and you apply them with the HUD. You do not have to take off a foot and then put it back on.  Same thing with gloves and stockings- you can wear different ones on each hand/ leg and you control it all in the HUD. 




I am sure there will be more features that I love as I continue to play with all my Slink 2 parts. Go get yours by hitting the redelivery terminal in the main slink store. You can read more about it on the Slink website too

Rack Rare Rogue


    Hiram and I are having fun at Fantasy Gacha. This is a rare pose from Rack Poses in the Rogue pose set at FGC. I have already blogged my FDD outfit in black and I love it so much I am showing it again a little bit differently in brown. I am also wearing it with my curvy shape this time and before I wore my standard size shape. This is fitmesh so it adjusts to my shape. I did not get the brown ultra rare corset or gloves and thats ok. As you can see wearing just a few of the pieces is way cute also. I love the look of the half top too although the ultra rare corset is particularly amazing and if someone wanted to give me one- I would not say no! I am accessorizing with a bunch of other jewelry and items I got at Fantasy Gacha as well. 

Hiram is wearing the Reverie Barroom Hero outfit, also in brown, although he got both brown and black full sets. I told him I liked it and wanted him to have it. He spoils me way too much. Although I think this is supposed to be like an old west gunslinger, I think it can be easily adapted to a host of other fantasy roles like rogue and pirate. 


Adam n' Eve just released a bunch of make-up and body art for the regular avatar, Slink physique, and Visage. I am wearing some lipstick, eyeliner, and eyeshadow from the new sets. They have demos that are really free mini testers because they are wearable. So go have a look at the new Makeup Counter at Adam n' Eve.

     This is a pretty recent in store Maai lingerie release. Ivana can be found in 9 colors and 4 zebra prints with different color lace trim. I fell in love with the hot pink zebra combination.

I paired it with some zebra shoes and nailpolish to add to the fun.

It is a Grave Stone


     NanTra made this pose prop and I don't think they are quite sure what it is exactly. So they are holding a contest to let all of us figure it out. I decided it was a unique headstone and headed to a graveyard to take a sexy spooky picture. You can find this new pose prop at Futurewave. It has a bunch of different textures and poses included so let your imagination run wild as you answer the question, What is this thing? There will be 3 prizes in the form of store credit! 1st prize is $1000L credit, 2nd is $500L credit and 3rd is $250 credit! Only one photo entry per person. Post your photo in the {NanTra} Flickr group with THING PHOTO CONTEST in description. Entries will be accepted for duration of the Futurewave event (ends midnight SLT March 1).




      My cheeky top is actually a very short sexy dress that shows some lacy panties in the front and its supposed to do that. You can find it at The Booty Call Fair which ends tomorrow February 22nd. It is half price while at the event so hurry over before the weekend is over. It comes with Slink Physique, Omega, and Wowmeh appliers as well as a plethora of boob and butt appliers.

     My skirt is new from Blueberry and it is fitted to Maitreya, Physique, and Belleza mesh bodies. I am wearing it with my Mait Lara and my curvy shape and it really works well. I love fitted mesh that adjusts to my shape. 

     I have tried many lips and have never wanted to buy one because they were all too downturned. I finally took the plunge and got the PXL Sweet Lips because they are pouty but at least the corners don't go down in a 90 degree angle like all the others seem to do. I still feel like I have a sneer on my face and I just wish someone would make a nice neutral happy looking mesh mouth, please! Also, I was expecting the applier to work like all my other appliers and poof- pretty much instant perfection as far as match goes. This was not the case and I tried to adjust and size it and did the best that I could but there was still a very noticable seam all around my mouth that I photoshopped. Again, this has been photoshopped. It does not look like this in world. I can't decide if I like them on me. What do you guys think of my lips?
