Fair Mermaiden

Posted on Updated on

Hey lovelies! Want to hear something that will boggle your mind? At this very moment, there are at least 62 Second Life fashion events in full swing on the grid, and that’s only the ones I’m aware of. Chances are, there may be even more! And with three of the most hotly anticipated events opening very soon (Hair Fair 2015, The Seasons Story, and the Wizarding Faire), I hope your virtual wallet is still hanging on for dear life. But you know I love tempting you, so you’ll get no relief from me! I’ve got a whole array of new, event-exclusive goodies to share. C’mon, dive in! The water’s fine, and it’s high tide for shopping!

At the Sex Sells Gacha Fair, CNZ brings you a gacha filled with mermaid loveliness, including six different tails, a shell bra, and poses to match. Every mermaiden needs a luxurious head of hair, so I can think of none more perfect than the Check Yes style from Besom, found at this month’s round of FaMESHed. It comes in two styles: the longer, sleeker version I’m wearing here, and the slightly shorter, more voluminous version 2.

My dreamy, luminous eyes are by UMEBOSHI and are exclusive to The Seasons Story, which opens on July 10th. (You’ll have to be a wee bit patient on that one, but I promise it will be worth the wait!) And I’m mad about my gorgeous diamond septum piercing by PUNCH, which may be found at the current round of Suicide Dollz. It comes with several metal choices (plus with an optional add-on HUD for even more varieties), as well as lots of beautiful gem tones.

I’ve dared to go bare with my teeny bikini from Sachi, which comes in gold and holographic varieties on system layers or Omega applier for my meshy mavens. My skin and lipstick are both group gifts from Pumec and Pink Fuel, respectively, and I highly recommend picking up both! For one last event exclusive, get your buns over to My Slink Obsession and snag the pose packs from Signature Pose. I had incorrectly assumed that this event solely catered to the Slink body/hand/feet crowd, but it’s also a wonderful place to find mesh clothing, poses, cosmetics, and more. You may even find shoes that come with versions for Maitreya and Belleza bodies as well. Love the versatility!

These pics took way, way too long to get (someone kindly spank me if I spend another hour fiddling with windlights), so I’m off to dreamland, where my mind will probably get lost in some kind of SL Event Inception. If you see me wandering around a shopping area in a hazy daze, give me a pinch and wake me up out of my reverie! ♥

Jessica Rabbit v2.0

Posted on Updated on

When I was very young, the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit debuted and it seemed nigh impossible to escape references to it in pop culture. While I wasn’t wild about the movie (much of it went over my little ginger head), I was irresistibly drawn to Jessica Rabbit, and loved to sashay around the house singing “Why Don’t You Do Right”, her sumptuously sexy torch song.

I’ve always enjoyed the fantasy of cosplaying Jessica in real life one day, and when I tried on MMC‘s Diamond Body Suit with Moon‘s gorgeous Moonlight hair (a brand whose teeny L$100 group joining fee is a million percent worthwhile), I immediately got a glimpse of what a modern day Ms. Rabbit might look like!

Want to give a special mention to the absolutely lovely group gift from Secret Love. It comes in three metals and offers oodles (yes, that’s an official term!) of color-change gem options. There are actually two necklaces set out as group gifts at the moment, and you should absolutely snatch them up. Not only because I said so, but because Secret Love’s designer, Faylinn Erin, is one of the warmest, friendliest and funniest people on the grid. True fact!

I’m really beginning to love the idea of one-piece outfits; they feel so easy and effortless! And there’s something distinctly Blanche Devereaux about an outfit that you can just “sling on and go” in its confident glamour. I imagine that Blanche fancied herself as a (slightly) more mature Jessica Rabbit, with her seduction and beguiling manner. I may have quite a while to go before I’m a Golden Girl, but I sure do feel like a glamorous chanteuse today!
