Somewhere over the Rainbow

for credits, please see below the blogpost

Happy Saturday Sweets,

you know what, sometimes when I start to blog a lot of the nice finds from different events I have a song turning in my head. And today is one of those blogposts. Today an alltime classic song for me is spinning around. “Somewhere over the Rainbow” – from the Wizard of Oz. And, yes I felt like Dorothy (wonderful potraited by Judy Garland) while taking these pictures.

But now, I better should tell you something about the “Oz”  I’ve created myself inworld. And yes, this post is a very good example of how you can mix & match different sales and hunts. So let us start.

The hair for my todays look is another freebie from the currently running HairFair 2012. It’s The Mel Hair in Almond from Milana. This neat haircut comes in four different colurs in the pack.

The dress I’m wearing is a gift in the currently  running Seraphim Turns One Birthday Hunt. This colorful mesh dress is from Somnia. It is a special edition of the neat Argyluarian Dress exspecially created for the Seraphim Birthday Hunt. It comes in female mesh standard sizing, with matching alpha layer.

Another word about the Seraphim Birthday Hunt: Please keep in mind this hunt  is not a free hunt. Every hunt item on the track costs you 10L$, but with all the wonderful creations the designers have put in the little birthday cupcakes hidden at participating stores it’s more than worth it.

The great prop (or more a living room) is also a gift in the Seraphim Turns One Birthday Hunt. It is from CIRCA and it includes next to the wonderful setup (a big couch prefilled with different poses – 11 in total),  the decoration. This gift makes a perfect add on to your personal home.

So much for my “Wizzard of Oz” moment from today. I’ll keep humming “Somewhere over the Rainbow” while I continue to explore the colorful word of second life.  For you I have preapred the credits of the items used in this blogpost.

Read you soon Sweets !

Gallery Hunting

for credits please below the blogpost

Happy Tuesday Sweets,

yesterday a new round of the Gallery Gift Shop has started. But this cycle is a very special one: The Gallery Gift Shop celebrates its first anniversary on the grid. And for celebrations of this special event, the artist and merchants have made next to their regular items a small huntgift and have hidden them in a pictureframe. This hunt is the perfect excuse to walk around the newly designed Gallery Gift Shop. There are so many nice corners to explore! Hints are provided via notecard, you can get at the entrance of the new build. Also the merchants have robbed their inventorys and displayed (nearly) all items they have ever offered at The Gallery Gift Shop in the past circles.

Now I have told you so much about the Gallery Gift Shop, but you should also make a visit at the Hair Fair 2012. This year every vendor on the fairground give an percentage of each sale to Wigs For Kids. Next to all the new releases there, at some of the boothes you can find goodiebags with examples of their work included. But, please keep in mind, that you maybe need a few tries to teleport to Hair Fair 2012. This years Hairfair expands over four complete sims, so there is a lot to explore and discover.

But, now to my todays very classic look, wich is a mix&match of the two events.  Let me start with the awesome dress I’m wearing today. It’s from 22769 ~ casual couture and is available for 160 L$ at  The Gallery Gift Shop. The Anastacia Dress comes in mesh standard sizing and with two different versions of the alpha layer included. As usual 22769 have included the alpha textures too. The envelope bag I’m wearing is the free huntgift from 22769 for the anniversary hunt!

Yes, I have got a new and very classy and elegant look for todays blogpost.  And my new haircut comes for free. It is from the Goodiebag greatfull offered by Zibska. Next to the Nan Hair in five colors you find the great earrings I’m wearing.

Also my todays pose is from the Hairfair. Amacci has included in their freebiebag four classic modelposes. Two for men and two for girls. But to be honest, you didn’t see, that I have  using a guys poses for this entry. So I would rather label them as unisex.

That’s all for today my sweets. Hope each of you have a great tuesday ahead or behind you. See you around !

Free at last

free_at_last_1

Freebies are shabby – only noobs wear freebies and they are not stylish at all, right?

Wrong!

Normally I try to do one blogpost a day which keeps me busy enough to be honest. But today I was forced to make another one (and believe me – this will be the exception of the rule). Why is that so? Well – I was trying to sort my inventory when a groupmessage from :sey popped up. Risey Arai made a freebie section. Freebies? At :sey? I must be kidding you. I do not. And boys and girls. The freebie section is not big, it is bloody HUGE! Everything I am wearing today is actually from the new :sey Freebie Department. Well everything except my everydays skin from Kento, the shades from bastard and the hair from Atro Patena. And the pose is from my new favorite pose store HISpose.

This is of course great news since Risey is a sculpt and texture god – not to mention his special style. The even better news are between the lines tho. Risey is cleaning out his shop and is getting rid of the old stuff. This can only mean that we can expect even more awesomeness from :sey – and the latest mesh releases speak loud and clear. Keep an eye on this shop – there is definitely more to come within the next weeks.

Clockwork Orange (recolored)

clockwork_1

Time to listen to some Beethoven guys! If someone would come to the idea to reshoot Clockwork Orange as machinima in SL – I have the right outfit for him. The Men Only Hunt (starting May 26th) has a theme this time: United Colors of Men. And indeed the designers created some colorful and unique gifts for you guys. My modern “Alex” outfit is put together with some of the hunt-rewards. The blue bowler and the hair is from MONS. The piercing comes from .HollyWeird. and the face tattoo from [White Widow]. The ear gauges are from MULHOLLAND and have a colorchanger. Japanese inspired are the geisha tattoo from RAMS TATTOO and the retro dragon jeans from TS who also have a top in their gift which is not shown here. Latreia give away these sneaker and the armchair prob in shocking yellow comes from supPOSEdly and the pose I used for this picture is one of the poses included in the prob.

Before I am off for my “Ludovico treatment” – I better give you the credits of todays look.

Confessions of a runway model

Runway1_1

As you know: in the world of fashion at one day you are in, the next day you are out. And who knows better then Heidi Klump that runway models have to hunt for new assignments, runway shows and an up to date look. In SL it is a bit easier now, cause the Runway Perfect Hunt 2 starts on Sunday, 1st April 2012. And I am very proud to show you some of the rewards beforehand.

This suit is the gift from CHG Fashion. And it is a splendid gift. You not only get all clothing layer and two different shirts (one with a print and a plain one) – you also get the dress shoes matching the suit. Having in mind that men often are left out in these kind of hunts this one is definitely worth it. It is well done!

Let’s talk about poses. Normally I do not credit my poses since I create them on my own (and I do not have a shop to sell them). This time it is different, cause the poses are also a gift in the Runway Perfect Hunt 2. The gift from ::Wet Cat:: is called “Window Shopping” and comes with a cute prob that Mondra and myself will blog later. Nevertheless – the poses of the prob are also included in the gift and these are the poses I used for my pictures. And they do match our little runway perfectly.
