Use Your Illusion

Posted on Updated on

Happy Thursday, my lords and ladies! I can’t believe we’re at the end of July already; so many events I’ve not yet visited, and so little time left in the month! While I make like a whirling dervish and try to visit as many soon-to-be-closing events as possible, I want to invite everyone to a brand new shopping experience with plenty of time left in the current round (whew!) It’s called Illusion Point, and it’s a fantasy-themed event where some of the very best designers on the grid are showcasing their creations at fabulously discounted prices. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to sneak peek some of the items on offer, and just as excited to finally be creating my first fantasy-inspired look. I hope I did these wonderful designers justice, or off with my head! :)

My luminous gown, jewelry and facepaint are all Illusion Point exclusives, by Les Encantades, Modern Couture and ARISE, respectively. I just love the mix of softness and strength in the Belona Gown, which comes with optional arm guards and shoulder armor, so you can be a jewel-toned damsel one moment, and a glam goddess warrior the next! It comes in 8 colors and is available in standard sizes. The exquisite Amore Jewelry Set is so beautifully detailed, with glistening gold filigrees, a jewel here and there, and bevy of delicate roses. It may be found in 4 colors, each sold separately. And I’m enamored with the Susa Facepaint, which is both delicate and defining, and comes in 8 shades (tattoo layers only) with both soft and normal opacity styles.

I really like the strong, well-defined brows on my gorgeous Aline skin by DS’ELLES, which is exclusive to the FAD Fashion Event through August 25th. My nails, which I was delighted are perfectly matched to my gown, are by my go-to nail guru, Alaska Metro. And I have to say once more how rapt I am with the group gifts from Suicidal Unborn, particularly the three sets of eyes members can collect from the VIP room. The Bastet Eyes have a wonderfully animalistic, otherworldly quality to them that I thought suited my fantasy style perfectly.

Hope you’ve had a marvelous week, and be sure to sneak a visit to all the July events that are wrapping up today and tomorrow! If you need guidance, my SL Fashion Events Tracker is always there to help make your shopping a bit easier. Enjoy! ♥
