Summer Girl

Posted on Updated on

Summertime, you are a tricky beast! No sooner had I started pining for Autumn when a lovely bundle of swimsuits came my way, and with a click of an applier button, I fell in love with the summery weather once more. Also, what better way to show off a lovely new tattoo than while wearing not very much at all? And any excuse I may find to visit one of my favorite sims is a truly worthwhile one, I’d say. So strike up “Summer Lovin'”, because it’s back to the beach with me!

First and foremost, I want to mention this gorgeous White Widow tattoo, which is a Gold level prize from The Collection, the brand new interactive adventure game from MadPea. You will become the main character in a quest that will lead you to a bevy of hidden treasures, following the clues and solving the puzzles you encounter in order to progress. It’s deeper than a traditional point-and-click game, and far more than just a hunt. The Collection has deeply immersive story and a truly unique style, so I highly recommend visiting the MadPea Games website to learn more about how to get started with this not-to-be-missed event!

In shopping event exclusives, I’m wearing the beautifully hand-drawn Giselle II Bikini by alaskametro<3, which may be found at the current round of AnyBody along side my fabulous lipstick by Nova Bodyshop. Over at the WearHouse event, you’ll find the gorgeous Ginger hairstyle by Tukinowaguma – a true bombshell style with an exceptional number of choices in the color HUDs – as well as an excellent and versatile pose set by Agapee.

I also want to give a special mention to my Chevron Necklace by Paper Arrow, which is the first piece of jewelry I’ve personally seen that features a specialized mesh body fit. I’m wearing the Maitreya (Beta) fit, and it may just be the first necklace I’ve ever worn in Second Life that did not have to be adjusted or resized in some fashion. So awesome! It fits beautifully against the skin with applier clothing, and works with mesh tops as well. A fitted version for Belleza’s Isis body is also included.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, and please do check out The Collection by MadPea; it promises to be a thrilling and rewarding way to enjoy a whole new aspect of Second Life, and the prizes on offer in the Silver and Gold packages are wonderful. See you there! ♥
