What lurks in the dark

Good morning world. And happy humpday. Did you know that I recently found out why people call it a humpday? I had seen it before but I totally had the wrong idea about it. Until a friend called me a pervert and told me the real reason. But hey, we don’t use that expression in Greece so I’m excused.

Today’s post features more stuff from the upcoming Arcade round. The bodysuit and boots are from Azuchi, the rare ones from his gacha set. The head is by Genesis Lab, new bento one and her name is Flor. I know you can’t really see it in this picture but be patient, there are more pictures to come in the next days. Meanwhile, have a look at the gacha key here as it’s a huge one and you might want to see everything it has to offer. Last but not least, the build is the new gacha release by Remarkable Oblivion. It consists of 9 commons and 2 rares and it’s amazing. Click here for the gacha key.

Good morning world. Sun is back where it belongs. It is a beautiful, warm, sunny day today so I’m happy again. I have tons of things to do, especially today, so I won’t ramble at all and skip to the stuff.

The Arcade opens in a couple of days and there are many great designs for this round. I will start by showing the fancy stuff Fancy Decor created for the event. The collection is called Royce and the gacha consists of furniture and decor items as well. Everything is listed in the credits below but you can also have a look at the gacha key here. The rest of the items I used for this picture are also by Fancy Decor. Everything worked together perfectly. So enjoy your morning coffee by reading my long list of credits instead of the news for a change. Also, you can have a look at the Arcade’s June 2017 shopping guide here for previews of what to expect at this round.

The glare that obscures

Good morning world. Monday again. Everyone happy? I’m kidding, of course you’re not and I can’t blame you. Although I heard that it is a bank holiday for many people at some places in the world. So I am considering moving for one day. Anyways, it has been a productive weekend for me. I also managed to sleep much, which is always the main goal. I went out with some friends too and then I also worked on some pictures. The Arcade opens on Thursday and the shopping guide is out so have a look for more details. I will be spamming you soon with pictures of new releases from the event, so be prepared.

Today’s post was an easy, quick and fun one. I like to make pictures that are just random sometimes. It features the new hair by TRUTH and the sandals by Friday. Check the credits below for landmarks and info.

Good morning world and happy Sunday. It’s raining like there’s no tomorrow right now and I’m feeling a little blue. That is the expression, right? I will embrace this moody vibe this morning, enjoy my coffee and go bother somebody. Yes, that’s the thing to do when you’re feeling down. And yes, you’re lucky it’s the weekend and I can’t ramble. Otherwise I would bring you all down with me.

Good morning world. Happy Saturday. I have blogged the Fancy Decor stuff from Collabor88 before but I wasn’t happy with what I had done at all.

Tropical chill

Good morning world and happy Friday. There is a group on Flickr called “Photoshop Vandalized Photos”. I’m a member of it and I often add my pictures there, as I usually go nuts on Photoshop. We all know that I’m not an expert at PS and I’m, most of the times, experimenting. It’s one of the tips Daeberethwen Arbenlow had given me. Trial and error. Try on filters, layers, light leaks, photo plates or whatever and see what you like the most. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. The world’s future is not depending on the picture you’re going to post. Besides, it’s the only way you’ll learn.

My picture today is an example of that. It was a normal, colorful picture at first, that meant to showcase 22679’s new release, but I was feeling creative and this is what happened to it. So I will conveniently call this Art and move on. I guess you want to see what the decor stuff really look like though, so have a look here. All the rest is listed and credited below.

Where my demons hide

Good morning world! I read a quote a few days ago “Look into my eyes…is where my demons hide” and I knew I had to use it on a post eventually. I like it as a quote alone but I also believe that it’s true. I work in human resources in RL and part of my job every day is to talk to people, interview people and often try to see what’s their story is only by looking at them. Sometimes unsuccessfully. But I’ve always believed and still do, that eyes don’t lie. There’s a magical way that eyes can speak louder than words. It’s the whole facial expression that does the work I guess, but the eyes are usually what we all pay attention to. Whether you’re lying, you’re excited, you’re happy or you’re doubtful, your eyes are the first to tell that for you. It’s also a reason why I always try to pay attention where my eyes are looking at when posing in a picture and if possible I want them to send the right message. I googled it of course (as I do with pretty much everything) and I came across an interesting article to back my story up. Read this and have a look at the pictures to see exactly what I mean.

Today’s picture features the new skin applier ItGirls released for the new Fiore bento head. The skin is available in all five skin tones and the hud comes with browless and freckles options too. The shape is included as always.

The hair I’m wearing is one of the newest releases by TRUTH. If you still haven’t tried them out, you’re definitely missing out. They’re gorgeous. They all come with a styling HUD, allowing you to change what the hair looks like and new colors too so I’m planning on spamming you with all of them for the next days. Showing it once is clearly not enough.

Last but not least, the socks are from friday and currently at the Rewind event. They’re called footless socks as they’re exactly that. They end right where your mesh feet start so that you can wear them with roller skates, boots or anything you feel like wearing and is ankle-high. They also come in 3 different options (striped, athletic and rainbow).

Inspiring red

Good morning world. Coffee hasn’t kicked in yet so I can’t and won’t say much today. I will only state the obvious. I’m wearing red…! And those that know me or have been following my posts, they probably remember that red is a color I usually stay away from. In RL but SL too. I always have a hard time with it when it comes to styling it and even though I like it as a color, I feel that it doesn’t work well with me. But the specific red color and pattern the Annex created for the Enchantment was irresistable. The whole event is inspired by Rapunzel but since I never really believed in fairy tales, this is a different version of her.

Another Mrs. Crawford

Good morning world. I will try not to mention what happened in Manchester. I’m disappointed once again and I’m angry but I also don’t want to bring anyone down. We need to be positive and think positive. The world can and will change as long as we have faith.

Let’s move on to the stuff. Today I will show some boobies. It is a little naughty. In a nice, fashionable way though. The thing is, when I tried on the new dress [I< 3 F] released for ROMP, I got excited. The little harlot inside me smiled and said, “you know you want to do it”. It might look like a normal dress to you and it kind of is, but what you don’t know about this dress is, it is scripted to undress in 6 different ways. You simply click on it, a hud appears and you click undress until you’re completely naked but still wearing it. Check this picture here to see all the options.

The fur boa is by Moon Elixir, also at ROMP, where you can also find this collar made by Wicca’s Wardrobe. Remember that the event ends on Friday so don’t take your time for too long.

The hair I have on is another beautiful add-on made by Tableau Vivant for the current round of Collabor88. They have been releasing some amazing ones lately, with hairbases to compliment the add-ons perfectly. These undercut addons come in 3 different options and all colors available of course. Since we’re in the event, you might also want to check out Fancy Decor’s “Crawford Collection” release. According to Jake Vordun‘s (the creator of Fancy Decor) note: “It was inspired by Joan Crawford after I watched a scene in the new series “Feud”. The marbled art is original, and was created by myself in RL using the super-interesting method of marbling paper.” And indeed, it is very impressive work. I wish I had more time to use the items in a proper scene and I probably will eventually, but the event can’t last forever so there you go. All of the items in the collection are listed below, so have a look at the credits for more information on the set.

No turning back

Good morning world. Happy Monday! Ugh, I’ve always believed these two words can’t be used together, but I’ll just play along. Someone once asked me, do you hate Mondays when you’re on vacation too? The answer is yes, maybe a little less, but I still do.

I was thinking this morning about the promise I made to myself. That this month I would take things slow, I would chill and post “every other day”. And here I am, 21 days later, posting everyday still and even twice a day sometimes. I can’t complain though, I love this. It might exhaust me and stress me very much sometimes, but I definitely can’t imagine my life without it.

I know for sure I can’t make the same promise next month as The Arcade is coming up, only 9 days left, and I’m part of the team now. I’m super excited about it but nervous at the same time. I want to cover the event the best way possible. There have been a lot of WIPs and previews from the event on social media and there is a line-up of brands participating which I’m going to share with you in the upcoming posts. Anyways, let’s move on to the stuff.

The hair I’m wearing is by TRUTH, called Cheri. It’s not a new release, I have blogged it before, but it’s an updated one. TRUTH released 3 new hairstyles at the mainstore last night and an updated version of this hair as well. So what’s new with the hair? Everything! The HUDs have been updated to include more textures and colors (suchs as Multitones) and you now also get a styling HUD. It is great work on their behalf and I’m loving each and every one of them. Here’s a screenshot of what the new HUDs look like and you can also read here for more details about the new release. So jump over the mainstore and try the demos out, you won’t be disappointed.

The collar I’m wearing is by SOUL and currently at the ROMP event. It is going to end in the next few days so you might want to hurry. Last but not least, the top and corset are part of the Pixie set Cellar Door released at WLRP.

That would be all for now peeps. Have a lovely one and I’ll see you all next time.
