something new poses
Do you believe in fate? Or serendipity? I can say with surety that I certainly do! I was gathering up the lovely bits and bobs for this look when a notecard dropped on me as if manna from SL Destination Heaven (or, the SL Blogger Support group). It introduced the Ironwood Hills sim, a spooky and wonderfully atmospheric build filled with curious corners and sinister desolation. Its mood was exactly what I was looking for, so I teleported over and enjoyed my time there immensely. Highly recommend checking it out!
I’m wearing a sultry body suit from ascending brand, Rising Hysteria. (See what I did there?) It comes in Charcoal (shown), Gray, and Silver with appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Wowmeh, Ghetto Booty, Lolas and Phat Azz, as well as system layers. So awesome to see such a great range of bodies and body parts supported! I also love how the legs are slightly high-cut, so a bit of skin peeks out over the waistband of my shorts. The sexy shrug is also part of the outfit, and it’s available exclusively at the Olala Fashion Event through July 20th. Olala is also where you can have a go at the Something New Props n’ Poses gacha machine, where my perfect pose comes from. I was looking for something with a distinct “NONE SHALL PASS” vibe, and I think this pose does the job wonderfully!
My sweet, snakey leg tattoo is by Endless Pain Tattoos and may be found as a prize in the Body Art Hunt, which is yours for the hunting pleasure through July 31st. My necklace and earrings are from the Gumballs set by Secret Love, because sometimes I like a little sweetness with my sass! The set also comes with a ring, which I featured in my Dress Up Dollz post, and it’s a really lovely collection with 3 different metals and 10 color change options.
I snagged my pretty, beautifully designed shorts from Somnia during the cart sale at The Wash several weeks ago, and they’re available now at the in-world store. There are several juicy colors in the HUD, and I thought this pretty pop of pinky-violet was just perfect. And my shoes! REIGN is an absolute legend, and I believe this is my very first pair which I picked up during last week’s Saturday Sale. (I just checked, and they’re still on the wall for only L$75 for the fatpack, so get ’em while the getting is good!) And while you’re at REIGN, be sure to slap the Saturday Sale group joiner. You won’t want to miss this weekend’s one-day-only sale event full of many wonderful designers offering their wares for L$75 or less!
