can’t go back to yesterday

I cant go back to yesterday“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

A quick portrait shot featuring some amazing headwear by Azoury; when I saw this at the Alice in Sexyland event, I knew it had to be mine! The style is so eye-catching and the shine on the hair is just fabulous.. so much fun to photograph. I just adore Azoury’s style – always something beautiful and unique ❤

My avatar is currently the newest doll from COCO: Fashion Doll. I’m sure, if you’ve visited any of my blogs in the past, you’ll know how much I love Cocoro’s doll avatars, and this latest release is no exception. The body is incredibly versatile and has a lovely sheen to it and there are currently four versions of beautiful heads to choose from, each with their own makeup and eye options; both body and head are available in four skin tones (pale, peach, tan, and dark) and are priced at L$450 each.

This particular version was a group gift when the range was released and is no longer available as such, but there are still clothes and accessories to fit it available for group members. The Dollcoco group is free to join, and Cocoro has always been incredibly generous to its members, so, if you love doll avis, I really recommend you consider making room for it!

Also available is a growing range of extremely cute clothing to fit – expect to see more from me about that soon! 🙂

Until next time, ((hugs))

I’m a big fan of Mr. Wainwright’s work and when I spotted this Contraption release over at the Dark Arts round of Genre I knew it had to be mine! The detail is exquisite and it’s a serious joy to photograph. There are two colour versions available at the event (alongside another amazing mask and a fab free gift) and they cost just L$100 each.

The Listeners‘ is modifiable for easy fitting, scripted with options to texture the stripes and ribbons individually with four colour choices and, if that wasn’t enough, it also includes a low-impact, rezzable, version.

Not many credits for this one but I’ve put them after the page break for continuity’s sake.

Until next time – sleep easy 😉

 not your boy

I made it out of the studio o/

My continuing quest for unisex clothing has led me to some lovely work by COCO and Apple May Designs. Each item is available in male and female versions and the quality is just amazing. The hand-in-pockets design of the jacket really gives life to the mesh and, by pulling it away from the body slightly, makes it a lot less boob-focused than much other, standard-sized, mesh. It’s also really lovely to see such well designed baggy jeans, and for only L$100, too! I absolutely love how they sit on my hips and I have a feeling it won’t be too long before I snap up the other colours.

I have treated myself to a new skin, too – this is the gorgeous ‘Bryn’ by Flamboyant who make skins for “beautiful, stylish and sexy adult effeminate male, femboys, girlish bois, traps, and trans-gender avatars.” The options you get for your L$800 are really impressive and make it incredibly versatile; certainly I’ve also found it perfect for a ‘tomboy’/FTM/androgynous look. I think I’m going to be wearing ‘Bryn’ a lot so there should be some close-ups soon – in the meantime you can always take a look at the Marketplace listing for lots of details and pics.

Finally, I’d like to give a shout out to the fabulous Honour McMillan, whose blog I read with much pleasure – she always posts about the most incredible places and it’s thanks to her that I found this sim when I was pondering where to take my pic.

Full credits after the jump.

if you’re going

 if you're going

Apologies for being slow to pick up the momentum on this blog – I’ve been catching up with creating for events in my store – I’ve been keeping it in mind, though and thinking about how to find new styles. It’s quite a learning curve at the moment and differs from my usual oh-that’s-cute-I’ll-just-blog-that attitude. While I’m still finding things I love, of course, I’m really having to think about the shape and fit of them and what avatar to put them on that might be a little more unusual. It’s a really enjoyable process, though, and I hope you’re enjoying the results, too.

I’ve mentioned at my previous blog how much Zibska‘s creations inspire me, so it was only a matter of time before I was going to revisit them here! I spotted this jewellery set (the pack also includes earrings and rings not pictured) late last night and knew at once I needed to try it on my male doll avatar then found the hair, too. Each has lots of colour options and I’m so happy with the how they look on!

I really love these leggings by NINFANIUM, too – the textures are so well done; I’m looking forward to trying the other colours out! I had a quick look around the rest of the store and I’m impressed with the range on offer – I’ll definitely be returning!

Thanks for reading! Click through for full credits.

Just stopping by to showcase these gorgeous lashes by no.7 available at L’accessoires until December 8th.. they include a colour-change HUD with 4 metal and 8 gem colour options and I think they are absolutely stunning!

This was also another opportunity for me to buy some more of my favourite DECO hair – I love the way it works with COCO‘s doll avatar and I’m kinda pleased with the way this pic turned out in general – if you’d like to see a much bigger version just give it a click as the blog layout does tend to make things pretty small.

Best wishes and see you soon!

And I Feel Fine

And I Feel Fine
It’s the end of the world as we know it..

Genre has started a new round and, this time, the theme is Post Apocalyptic. Chariot‘s contribution are these fabulous scavenged breastplates – they are modifiable so I had no trouble fitting them to my shape and the textures are exquisite, as always. There are three versions available: ‘Unstoppable‘ (pictured), ‘No Entry‘ and ‘Diverted‘ – they cost just L$50 each or you can buy all three for L$100. The round is open until December 12th and is packed full of incredible items so be sure to hop on over!

I also want to mention this androgynous ‘Jahne Doe‘ skin by Deluxe Body Factory because I am utterly in love with it! It’s one of the prizes in MadPea’s latest interactive hunt/game, Blood Letters. A modifiable shape is also included but I used my own because I really like the way it looks on my current face shape.

Blood Letters is an unusual and compelling murder-mystery game that unfolds a little bit each day. You need a HUD to play (costs L$400) which allows you to pick up clues – you receive prizes at the rate of one a day (if you miss a day, don’t worry – you can go back along the time line, you just can’t skip ahead) and then a bunch more at the end; they have all been stunning so far (you’ll have to wait a little longer for this skin as the story hasn’t reached that location yet.) I’ve been playing along and it really is a lot of fun with a great sense of community in the MadPea group as we all try to solve the case! The game runs until November 30th and the starting point is here; full instructions on how to play can be found over at the MadPea blog. The experience is most definitely adult-orientated so I would recommend making sure you are comfortable with the themes before taking part.

Thanks for reading – see you all soon!

LOTD ~ 10-22-14: Dem Bones

I love this time of year and everywhere I turn people seem to be releasing the cutest things; there are loads of free and cheap items popping up all over the place. My dress is a new free-to-join group gift from COCO – and I absolutely love it – it’s just so sexy (with side slits you can’t see in this photo) yet casual and it’s going to be a while before I take it back off! The incredibly detailed collar is a new VIP gift from Remarkable Oblivion. This group costs L$50 to join but there are a whole bunch of amazing gifts available for such a tiny price.

The super-cute hair with eyeball bows is by LaViere and can be found at Trunk or Treat – this colour is from the red fatpack, which is totally free, and I think I remember the other packs only being priced at L$80 each. A HUD to change the colour of the bows is also included. Trunk or Treat is a kid-friendly event but there is plenty for adults to enjoy too – most carts seem to have a freebie and it’s a lovely little market to look around – it ends on November 5th, so be sure to visit before then.

I’m also totally in love with this skin by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which can be found at a discounted price at the fab Feeb’s Rascal’s St. Sales Room – the colouring is just beautiful, especially on this freckled version.

Finally, Ricielli is having another hunt to say goodbye to their old store as they refurbish.. there are 20 gorgeous, and generous, prizes available – including a fatpack of these stunning shoes – all for just L$15 each. You can see a line-up of the prizes on their Facebook page and I think the hunt ends around November 12th.

Back again soon, thanks for reading!

The Cutest Invasion

The Cutest Invasion
There’s a Moosey on your Law-awn!

So, a little while ago, the fabulous Scarlet of Alouette requested on Plurk for people to do some pics of her Funny Puppet Fair item so that she could decorate her stall with them. Because my mind works in mysterious ways I decided to turn my Mooseys into a horde à la Plants vs. Zombies using mostly random items in my inventory.

I’m actually pretty pleased with the way the picture turned out – it makes me giggle, probably more than it should, so I thought I would share it with you all now that the fair is open. I’ve also added another picture of a zombie scooping up a moose that has made it to his porch and he is TOTALLY NOT GOING TO EAT IT BECAUSE IT IS TOO CUTE! Okay? Okay!

These adorable Moose are only L$65 a pack and include small and large holdable as well as rezzable versions. Funny Puppet Fair closes on May 25th and it’s well worth a visit – make time for it if you can.

Scroll down for full credits.

Undeadly yours,

Braai.. Hugz!
