Spring Steampunk

Spring Steampunk (full)

If the sky that we look upon well should tumble and fall

Taking pictures in one’s backyard has its perks but recently it’s been more of a hazard lately than anything else. After being nudged out of the treehouse for the umpteenth time by Commander (a polar bear that loves being up in trees; who would have thought) I decided to take my chances out on the grid. Thanks to a grumpy laptop, it’s been a while since I’ve managed to snap some shots on the many beautiful sims that Second Life has to offer but it seemed to be in a good mood today and lucky thing because the items I have to show you today deserve a marvelous backdrop.

Let’s start off with the newly updated Fabulously Free in SL group gift from MOoH! (thank you, Dalriada Delwood!). No matter how full my virtual closet gets (it’s pretty stuffed let me tell you), I always make room for clothing from MOoH! With their signature eye-catching designs and gorgeous texturing, it’s always a challenge to stop squeeing loudly whenever I see a new offer from this store. You can bet it’s what I did when I first laid eyes on the Janis dress but I really don’t think I can be blamed. After months of thick sweaters, this sleeveless, belted number was exactly what I needed in my life. Not only is the cut of this dress perfect for future Spring frolics, it’s deep lavender color is reminiscent of a field of flowers sharing the same name. Add that to the flowery lace overlay and well, Love hit the nail right on the head that this is a dress that can make you all excited for Spring!

The Janis dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Five Standard Mesh (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh  (XS-XL)
  • Belleza Isis
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Included in the gift package is an alpha layer as well and with so many sizes to choose from I think there’s a good chance that you’ll find a fit for your avatar. As with all Fabulously Free in SL group gifts, the Janis dress is free of charge. You’ll only need to have your group tag activated and you won’t even have to pay a single L to join the group. While you’re at the store, do consider joining the MOoH! group as there are monthly group gifts and a monthly gift card for group members. The join fee for the MOoH! store group stands at a 100L but with all the goodies that you get, it’s a bargain.

Steampunk Spring

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

With February being the mushy month that it is, I decided to take a small break from all of that and visit The Broken Heart Fair. There’s a wide variety of goodies to be had at the fair, from decor to accessories to clothing and of course shoes. Most of the stalls had 30L or 35L items out as well as items going for 50% off and I had the good luck of grabbing this pair of Steampunk boots from Luas for only 35L. There’s no resisting a good pair of boots and I simply adore the chained gears detailing and those spikes that will no doubt add a subtle edge to any outfit. These Steampunk boots come with an alpha layer to help with the fit if you’re still on a classic avatar.

I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t she’d a tear

While you’re at The Broken Heart Fair, don’t forget to pick up the gifts that are available at the stores (just look for the heart-shaped box). You don’t need to have a group tag to get them and opening up boxes of free gifts after an outing is a fine way to pass the time yes? The bag in the picture is one such gift that you can get at the fair just by stopping by the Poet’s Heart stall. While it’s a long way to Halloween, I couldn’t resist bringing this cute, well-detailed bat bag with me on my adventures. There are two different variations of this bag in the prize package, one with a hold animation and one without.

The Broken Heart Fair is running until the 15th so hurry down and grab your gifts or do a little bit of shopping before it ends.

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And that’s a wrap. Have fun on Valentine’s Day guys! If you’re wondering about the song, well, train tracks.
