I <3 Blacklace, Even When it’s Purple

Blacklace GG

Hello Fabulous People! So the Queen of Everything is back with some luscious lingerie from Blacklace. This satin and lace bra and pantie set is a current group gift from Blacklace. The set comes in several colors, and with appliers for most of the meshy parts out there! When it comes do lingerie, Blacklace never disappoints, and this little set is no exception. As we all know by now, I love tattoos. One more nice thing about modeling lingerie is that it allows me to show off tattoos that other clothing items might cover!

I first saw this thigh tattoo on Flickr and went right to the Marketplace to get it. I think it’s a great combination of sexy and spooky! The tattoo is called “Queen of the Night” and is perfect considering Halloween is right around the corner. You can get this version and 3 additional tattoos(Maleficent, Bloody Rock, Sherlock)  in a fatpack for just $40L on the Marketplace, or $15L each. Also on the Marketplace, these cute vampire fags from Cain. Tiana has worn them often in her posts, and I’m so glad! I think they are just perfect for this look. These shoes are to die for, right?! They are a group gift from REIGN, and like the fangs have been shown previously. Love wore them in one of her posts, and they were just so epic I had to show them again.

Speaking of epic, my dark pretty purple manicure and matching pedicure are a preview of a nail palette available October 1st from Nail Me! Starting the first of October you can get these perfectly purple nails in a Halloween palette that includes 3 other colors for just $10 lindens at the Night of the Living Cart Sale!

I hope you like this look as much as I do, I’m excited about getting into the spirit of Halloween! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Ice Bucket Challenge & Fair

Ice bucket

Hope you’re all having a happy weekend! I know I’ve enjoyed mine, though I’m a little bummed it’s coming to an end. To cheer us all up, I’ve got some great news about another event that recently started, and it’s for a good cause too! I know we’ve all seen the Ice Bucket Challenge stuff going around the internet, it’s everywhere. We’ll Second Life has got in on the act too!

Several fantastic designers and group organizers have come together and partnered with ALSA to raise funds and awareness. What is ALSA you ask? ALSA stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. The ALS Association works to raise funds to help fight this disease, create awareness, and help find a cure! For more information, go to http://www.als.org. Now where is the cheer-up part Pru? I know you’re asking! The cheerful part of this is that at the Ice Bucket Fair there are ALS vendors with incredible items , 100% of the proceeds from the ALS vendors goes to the ALSA. Now that’s exciting!

In addition to the worthy cause, there is a lot of fun to be had, several designers have additional items up for sale at great prices. There are also some gachas for all the gacha addicts like me, and the best part, the Ice Bucket Challenge! Yep, you can actually participate in an Ice Bucket Challenge at the Ice Bucket Fair. Sit down, make a face, and dump a bucket of ice cold water on your head all in the name of charity! There is a booth set up for you to take a snapshot as well, so you can capture your best Ice Bucket Challenge moment. Upload your photo to the Ice Bucket Challenge Flickr pool and be entered to win awesome prizes!

I did do a little bit of shopping while quickly checking out the Ice Bucket Fair, and I found a couple of cute things I wanted to show you. Here are the details, Enjoy!

We’ve got gypsy style going on!

Howdy lovlies!! I have drug Shamic up to my picture-taking platform this evening, as he and I recently went over to MishMash and got some great free outfits for the Travelling with Gypsies Hunt, so of course he needed to model his with me.

gypsystyle

The Travelling with Gypsies Hunt is a free hunt that has some great gypsy themed gifts. Don’t Shamic and I look cute together? The female MishMash hunt gift comes with this gorgeous mesh maxi skirt with sash (of which there are standard sized mesh, and a fitted mesh version), and your choice of 4 different tops; 1 mesh, rouched blouse, and 3 system layer tops, pictures of all 4, closeup, are below. You also get 3 chain necklaces, 1 choker necklace, a pair of earrings, and a pair of arm cuffs, and bracelets. The necklaces are fun, as you can wear all 4 of them at once since they are all of differing lengths.

gypsystyle2

Shamic’s outfit, while it does not come with as many top options, is just as nice. The drawstring pants, and vest, are both mesh, in the standard sizes, and you also get the 3, chain necklaces, earrings and arm bands. I just love the texture on the vest, you really do need to see it in person.

gypsystyle3

Both outfits are in a single hunt item, and the hint for this gift is : “Don’t step on me!!!” There is a blog page that has hints for each store as well as preview pictures, HERE. There are a lot of nice gifts for this hunt, with quite a few mens gifts. I love when a hunt has a lot of variety :) You have until September 30 to go grab these gifts, so don’t wait too long, it will be over before you know it.

Alrighty, that is it for us, but I will be back soon :) Until then, TTFN!

The Answers are in the Stars

Answers in the Stars

The answers are in the stars. Even our ancient ancestors looked to the heavens for answers to the many mysteries of the universe. Search the night skies of Second Life with this Astronomers Set from Roawenwood. This complete mesh set has single and couples poses and includes the table with items, and separate telescope. It is perfect for both modern and fantasy role play. The best part is, the set is the MadPea Green-mire Hunt gift from Roawenwood!

** Just a special note about the Greenmire Hunt, it’s not your average hunt! You have to follow one of two paths, and complete objectives using a hud. The “Stargazer Astronomers Set” from Roawenwood is one of the prizes you can claim at the end. Here’s the website for more information on how to do the hunt.

http://madpea.blogspot.com/2014/09/green-mire-ii-gathering-introduction-to.html

While playing with the poses and really looking at all the great details of the Astronomers set from Roawenwood, I imagined myself as the apprentice to some great Astronomer, diligently researching and learning all that I could. I enjoy props like this one because they allow me to tell a story. Most of the outfit I chose is currently available at The Countdown Room, at a deeply discounted cost. My hairstyle called “Beauty” is a gacha prize by Olive available at The Arcade. Another version of this fairy tale themed hair was also shown by Tiana here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

This Little Light of Mine

Lantern Fairy 1

The inspiration for this post is the Twisted Hunt gift at Roawenwood. This beautifully crafted display case made me think of every fairy tale and bit of folklore I’ve ever heard involving the capture of a fairy or pixie! This display case includes several pose options perfect for Gorean or other fantasy genre role-play I just had to put something together. Lucky for me, one of my favorite events, The Fantasy Room, has started a new round! I always find amazing things at The Fantasy Room. So, I decided I’d take the opportunity to show off a few of the items I found there as well. Sweet Lies has this beautiful complete outfit for just $50 Lindens at The Fantasy Room. This mesh ensemble includes upper and lower arm bracelets, anklets, a mesh “dress”, and matching thong. Please note that this is a “Gorean” style outfit, so it’s meant to be revealing. That said, I think it’s perfect for role play, and it could even be worn with other clothing for a variety of looks. Also, the outfit includes a working oil lamp! Also at The Fantasy Room, I found some fun foot chains from Storybook. They are called “Tartarus Chains” and I thought the delicate chain in the curvy organic pattern was perfect for my little Lantern Fairy.

Lantern Fairy

Wanting to give my little fairy a little more magic and mischief to her look, I decided she needed some cosmetic enhancements. We all know how much I love makeup! While browsing through Swag Fest, I picked up this gorgeous bronze-ish lipstick from Pink Acid priced at just $50 lindens. The color is called “Bean” and it’s perfect for something dark and lovely, especially for fall. I paired my pretty lipstick with some upper and lower eyeliner, and a tattoo I found on the Marketplace. This little crescent moon shaped tattoo is by Evocative, and was a mere $25 lindens on the Marketplace. Also on the Marketplace, I picked up a fairy essential, wings! These delicate wings are by The Black Forest, and they are modifiable, as well as scripted. At just $10 lindens on the Marketplace, they are well worth it! I hope you like my little Lantern Fairy!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
