Tahitian Picnic

Tahitian Picnic

The Multicultural Menu is a brand new annual event that opened on the 1st featuring food from 6 different regions of the world created by some of Second Life’s best creators.  The Tahitian Feast gacha set by Kei-Spot fits my beach perfectly!  It consists of 7 commons, 2 rares, and one ultra rare with a pull price of L$50.  I have the whole set rezzed here except for one of the rares – the cooking pit.  I have it off to the right of what the photo shows, but I couldn’t fit it into the picture.

In other exciting news, FATEwear released some new summerwear today!  The Craig hoodie* and Brian shorts* were released in a multitude of colors, as well as a color-gradient non-striped hoodie and camouflage-patterned shorts.  I really love the Craig hoodie – it’s something I’ve been looking for in Second Life for a long time now, so I’m glad that a high-quality designer like FATEwear made one.  I’m also wearing the new James flip flops by ..::ILLI::..  Using the HUD that they come with, I was able to tint them to match the hoodie perfectly.  Full credits are below!

This month’s Uber has some amazing goodies with its theme of “Spice” with most of them going towards a very Indian aesthetic.  I decided to combine a few of those (this photo features items from the event by N4RS, Zaara, Aria and junk.) with some pieces from Zaara’s gacha set from March’s round of The Arcade to create this cozy little corner.  Full credits are below!

The Key To The Beyond

The Key To The Beyond

I really love the photo sets that Exposeur has been creating recently.  This one, The Keyhole, is available at the Dark Style Fair.  Rather than going in a dark direction with it, I decided to use it as a gate to something bright, perhaps on the other side of death.  I envision my avatar as some kind of angel who welcomes people to what is beyond.

The incredible jacket that I’m wearing is new from Gabriel at Kustom9.  It’s available in 4 different colors, each of which comes 3 versions – white t-shirt, black t-shirt, and no shirt.  My necklace is from Empyrean Forge at We ❤ Roleplay.  The amount of detail that they put into their creations is just unreal.  My sandals are the new Gustav sandals from ..::ILLI::..*.  Full credits are below!

Blue Days of Spring

Blue Days of Spring (Low Res)

Happy Tuesday!  I’ve been in a very “blue” mood so far this week, and I think that really comes through in this post.  I absolutely love this pose environment from Exposeur.  It’s out at the current round of FaMESHed and includes 20 different poses and their mirrors in and around these white rooms.  The shirt from [monso] is also at FaMESHed this month.  Fantasy Gacha Carnival opened today, and one of the machines contains this hair from Damselfly.  Finally, I posted these jeans last week, but you really couldn’t see them too well because I was wearing a long top with them

Saturday at the Beach

Saturday at the Beach

I feel like I’ve been blogging things on my beach a lot, but this time of year, I spent a lot of time here!  When I saw the Starboard Hammock by Consignment and Kuro at the round of Collabor88 that opened yesterday, I knew that I absolutely had to have it.  Then I saw this new version of AP.PAREL‘s zip tank at The Thrift Shop 9.0, which opened today.  I’ve already blogged a couple of other versions of this tank from its initial store release (which was mostly spring-themed), but this new version may be my favorite.  The shorts are at this month’s The Men’s Department, and were created by Modulus.  They’re rigged for The Mesh Project’s body, so they fit perfectly.  I haven’t been able to find many shorts that fit the body as well as these.  Finally, the flip flops* are brand new from FATEstep.  As with all of the FATEstep shoes, the Wilde Sandals include a HUD that changes them to 60 different textures.  These include sandy options, which is perfect for the beach.  Finally, the sunglasses are new at Collabor88 from Sorgo and the necklace is available at The Thrift Shop 9.0 from B’LEAF.  Full credits are below!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo started out as a day to remember and celebrate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, but has since transformed into a day to celebrate Mexican culture.  I put this outfit together using mostly older items, but the Wonton Sude Fringe Jacket from the round of The Mens Dept that just opened today was really what I needed to bring it all together.  I also adjusted the newly-updated FATEstep Ziggy Chucks* (now available in an unrigged version so that you can manually adjust them) to be the colors of the Mexican flag, which matched them to the jacket and sombrero.  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

The Sole Survivor

The Sole Survivor

This week, Strawberry Singh’s blog meme was to take a photo in Second Life inspired by a television series.  I figured that everyone was going to be doing Game of Thrones, so I decided to do one from one of my non-fantasy favorite genres – reality TV.  Survivor has long been one of my favorite shows, and this photo depicts a Survivor contestant who has won an individual immunity challenge when he needed it most – he made it to the final 7, but was about to be voted out by agreement of two alliances of 3 people!  That means that rather than going home, he’s now the deciding vote between the two sides of the tribe.  No wonder he’s smiling!  In my mind, he plays the rest of the game perfectly, and ends up being voted as the Sole Survivor, the winner of the season.  Full outfit and scene credits are below.

The outfit features items from a few events, but I’d like to highlight the face paint.  It’s by HopScotch and will be available at Fantasy Faire when it’s open later this week.  Because Relay For Life vendors require 100% of sales go to RFL, the face paint won’t be in an RFL vendor, but the creator has said that a part of each sale will be put into an RFL kiosk.  It was what I needed to finish off this character, and it was released at a perfect time!
