Fish for this! 4 a.m. Curbside service

The newest Sn@tch fishing outfit, 4 a.m. curbside service, makes me feel like a rock star! There are 24 pieces to fish up, including shoes, jewelry, 2 tops, a corset, a pair of booty shorts, leopard leggings, fishnet tights, and appliers for both lolas tangos breasts and the Ghetto booty! These pieces mix and match fantastically with other Sn@tch goodies as well!

The sound of sn@tch_001

 

My absolutely fabulous guitar bag is NOT part of this outfit, it’s a sneak preview of one of the the rock attitude fashion fair gatcha items from Frogstar! These bags are absolutely to die for and come in an INSANE 22 different textures, only 2 of those being rare!  The gatcha will be $L50 per play at the Rock attitude fashion fair, which starts April 1st!

At the last minute, Ivey deschanel of Sn@tch decided to add the top I’m wearing here to the outfit set on 2 different layers, making this a 24 piece outfit (instead of the previously announced 22!) and I am thoroughly glad she did!

Guest Blog by Chiana Oh

A Guest Blog by ChianaO, originally blogged on Cheep & ChiChi!

What’s your favourite thing about space?

Mine is space the futuristic fashion ;)

Spaaace Close-up

The inspiration for this post was seeing May Tolsen’s release for the current round of Kustom9 – ‘Space Friends‘ are so adorable  that I knew I had to have some for my very own. These detailed original meshes are designed to be worn as attachments but I thought it would be fun to rez them for this post; I resized ‘My Home,’ (taking care to make a note of its original dimensions so I could return it back to its intended state once I was done) and I love the results!

Of course, setting up a space-themed post meant I got to shop for lots more cool stuff (not that I ever really need much of an excuse.) I stumbled across Nylon Popstar‘s leotards a little while ago and I knew they would be the perfect starting point for my outfit – there are 9 colours to choose from, each including 2 transparancy options, multiple layers and Phat Azz and Lolas appliers for only L$50 a pack. Hopefully the pictures speak for the amazing quality of the texture itself – it really is that shiny!

A search for space-y items on Marketplace returned these funky boots by Killer Cerise and I just had to have them: the style and texture is just so cute! I resized them slightly and used the alpha for my Slink feet rather than the one included as my legs are pretty small.. but that is the beauty of modifiable items, with just a little tinkering you can have them fit pretty much any shape you choose to be.

I found Olli Braveheart‘s hair store, LCKY, thanks to a fellow blogger and I’m now a big fan: the styles there are really something special and the colours in the packs are some of the loveliest I’ve seen. The one I’m wearing here is an older style which fitted perfectly under Dolce Blackflag‘s fab helmet – there are currently 15 discounted styles out in store sold in colour packs costing only L$50 each.

I’ve layered quite a lot of eye makeup for an ‘out of this world effect’ but the skin itself is a lovely dollarbie from the ever-fabulous MiaSnow (back in-world again, yay!): its lips were already a perfect match for my chosen outfit.

I hope you enjoy this look at least a little as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Until next time,

<3

The Love Hamster

Blogging Soon

Look who I found wandering around the garden: the Love Hamster! ;-) Ok, I know Valentine’s Day is over, but I just couldn’t resist showing you this little cutie, a Valentine’s VIP group gift from BIRDY. He comes with a HUD so you can change the sentiment on his heart (mine says “XOXO”). Both my dress and eyes are group gifts from Avi-Glam, and my jewelry is a group gift from Lazuri. The jewelry is also HUD-driven, with 6 metals, 10 heart gems, and 10 small gems.

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we're CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. :-) My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. :-)

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! ;-)

The Dirty Turkey Hunt Part 1

Hello Gorgeous! This is the first part of three of the Dirty Turkey Hunt 4.0. Depravednation is organizing this hunt from November 1st until November 30th, and you have to go around 100 stores looking for a round object with a turkey picture.

On these three posts I will be covering about all the gifts of the hunt: clothes, shoes, tattoos, jewelry, accessories and poses; I will not cover the furniture offered, that way you can get surprised with other cool goodies. This is a free hunt with good quality stuff, so you should go out there and start hunting. I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun. :)

Some places are a little bit tricky, but believe me, you’ll find everything if you follow the hints.
