A wild new look?

A brand new event called Uber opened up today, and I dare say that it is one happening collaboration right now!  With huge names from the designer world, a variety of items, and the freshness of the event, it's the place to be ~ and you can tell by how packed the sim is!  I happened to squeeze in today, and couldn't even TP in a friend because the region was full.  I had heard about some great items that were going to be on display, so I had to go; and man, am I glad I did!  I grabbed up this exclusive hair from Wasabi Pills while I was there and drooled over a ton of other items as well!

Tomorrow will be the opening of [Room69], another stunning monthly collaboration event!  Normally, when I think M&M, I think candy!  Now I'll think of M&M Body Shapes and this sweet leopard print sheer dress & matching panties!  Comes in brown or gray, available at [Room69] right NOW!

I usually don't blog shapes because I am so partial to my own.  This one, though, is from .NOUN. and is available at [Room69] only for the month of August!

Dark skin, lavender lips, shimmering purple eye shadow - this is a group gift from Skin-S for the month of August!  Come grab yours by looking for Sonya!

Above:  On the slender side, between the left arm and hip, lie the wise words:  "Why wait for the storm to pass when you can dance in the rain" in what looks like hand-written script.  This is a new tattoo (one of three) available from IAF at [Room69] starting tomorrow!

The breakdown:

Hair:  Wasabi Pills - Jean - Mesh - Lemon Tea - Now at Uber
Skin:  Skin Sation - Sonya - Deep Dark - Group Gift!  (no appliers included, so no mesh attachments shown)
Shape:  .NOUN. - Mila - At [Room69]
Tattoo:  IAF - Dance in the Rain - comes with appliers for WowMeh body, in 2 different ink opacity levels (light and dark) - At [Room69]
Outfit:  M&M Body Shapes - Leopard Sheer Dress - at [Room69]

Check out the [Room69] blog!

Look what I got!

You ever have one of those days where you go shopping, and you find something you love, even though you know it's something completely impractical or doesn't fit in with anything else you have; but you buy it anyway?  Yeah, me either!

Above:  Went shopping, met up at the coffee house, and had to show off these new shoes!  The look on Adin's face speaks volumes to how much he likes being used as a footrest!  Or maybe he's just irritated that he didn't find these heels first?

Above:  He did get to go hair shopping, though!  Elikatira is having a special 99L$ sale!  So much mesh hair goodness!  Lots and lots of braids there right now, though there are several other styles, long and short, that you can choose from.

Above:  We both got braids when we went, and I was just ecstatic about it!  Or maybe it was the coffee that got me so wound up?  A little of both!

The shoes come in 6 different colors, and are made for Slink rigged high feet.  Because these are extra-tall heels, you'll need to edit your shape so that your hover is set at 54 to give you that extra lift!

Good Little Kitten

At first she seemed timid, hiding behind the screen as she undressed, shying away from sight.  When the dress was gone, so was her meekness; and she approached him on all fours, crawling toward him with mischief and desire in her eyes.

"Some call them Forest Girls..."

"These were Forest Girls, sometimes called Panther Girls, who lived wild and free in the northern forests, outlaw women, sometimes enslaving men, when it pleased them to do so."
-Captive of Gor, Book 7, Page 118, John Norman

Above:  There is a place called Hrimgar where the Sa Ki Fori Panther Girls reign.  Be careful to stay on the path, should you venture through.  Straying aside could give warning of your approach, and you may find yourself ambushed!

Above:  This outfit comes in 3 color options and includes appliers for Lolas and Phat Azz mesh parts.  There are scripted and unscripted prim options, to make re-sizing easier.  Now is the time to grab it, though, as it's on sale for a limited time at the Fantasy Room for only 50L$ per color set!

Above:  Another bargain to be had TODAY ONLY is this amazing rose bush!  Super-low land impact, with options of a dirt base, potted plant, or without a base, and you can change the rose colors as well.  Oh, and it gets better!  You can actually pick the roses, and get a beautiful, vast array of colorful roses.  The detail is amazing, and the rose bush is only 50L$ today at DDD!

So much greatness at such a limited time!  ROMP closes on July 30th and won't open again until this winter, so now is the time to go and grab this "Back to Nature" pose (includes props) from Bounce This Poses.

Heath is wearing a brand new release from Dura, which is one of their unisex styles.  It's one of their first attempts at rigged mesh, and is hot!  Find it by going to their new hair section and looking for DBG52!

Is she a good girl?

One of the places that I learned about way back in 2010 when Whispering was born, was FabFree HQ.  I learned that there were a lot of designers out there willing to help new players get a decent av put together without having to spend a ton of L$.  If you want to play on a free account, without ever buying a thing, you can, and there are people who will help you!  Every once in a while, I like to pop back in there and see how things are being updated.  Freebies have come a long, long way, and the recent revamp of FabFree HQ reflects that as well.

Ladies, here are a couple of options you can find there, whether you've got a free account, need a quick and inexpensive update, or just love to get gifts!  Who doesn't love gifts?!

One thing that has been a drastic change in SL was the addition of mesh.  We see it everywhere, from buildings and landscape to hair, eyes and even bodies.  The hands, feet, breasts and hair you see in this post were not free.  The shoes are available in a discount room right now.  The skin, eyes and outfit were all found at FabFree HQ!

This skin from LOUX comes with appliers for Slink hands and feet, Lolas breasts, and Linc Phat Azz mesh parts.  While that's not the entire list of mesh parts that you might want appliers for, that's a really good start!  most gift skins don't have appliers at all, let alone for so many different options!  Tattoos are on the skin itself.  The eyes are from Mayfly, and come in a variety of shading options.

For those of us who are in love with our mesh feet and hands, !Nail Me! has put out nail appliers at FabFree HQ, too!  It's a HUD set with 8 color options in this style for both finger nails and toe nails.

The breakdown:

Skin:  LOUX - Bella - Natural - Tone LX20 (with appliers) - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Shape:  Mine!
Eyes:  Mayfly - Deep Sky Eyes (Mesh and System) - Onyx - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Hair:  Tableau Vivant - Longfall Hair - Dark Blonds (without mermaid headdress) - previous gacha, can be found at some gacha yard sales!
Hands:  Slink - AvEnhance Hands - Female - Relaxed
Feet:  Slink - AvEnhance Rigged High Feet - Female
Breasts:  Lolas - Delicq Rigged Mesh
Outfit:  Biasta - Good Girl - mesh skirt and mini top with appliers - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Shoes:  Glow Designs - Strap Heels - Crystal Pink - Available now at Designer Circle
Nails:  !Nail Me! - Fabulous - 0L$ at FabFree HQ
Setting:  ROMP Fair 2014

Trip to Venice

"We feel most alive when we are closest to death."
-Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

Dark side of New Orleans

It's not Thursday, so I can't call this "Throwback Thursday."  I can tell you I revisited an old haunt and popped in over at Godswar the 100 today!  I ran into a great friend of mine, Petra, and coerced her into posing for me for another post! (Insert much squee here!)

I asked Petra to show me her favorite spot on sim and this is where she took me.  She said if you stand in the middle of the road there, you "look one way, you see Oak Alley, the other, you see that amazing Virginia Oak tree."  Above is a shot of Oak Alley.

Being a sim admin is tough work.  Petra is one of those admin that gave up RP (which breaks my heart because she's such an amazing writer!) in order to handle the admin side of things, helping with power leveling and story telling.  Running a sim takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work!  Though she's not an actual player character in NOLA, she's maintaining an active presence and what a presence it is!

 If you had to imagine some spirit-form wandering about New Orleans, wouldn't this be one you'd rather run into than some from the movies?  It's got the perfect balance of smolder and shiver!

Above:  That amazing Virginia Oak Tree!  Simple things in the distance that look so benign.  But when you get a little closer and see what's really lurking in the darkness...

Above:  The hair is a HAIR FAIR freebie from EMO-tions!  Get it while it's hot!  It's called Medusa, and for good reason!

A beautiful place to ROMP

I was getting ready to do the shoot this morning for today's post and realized that, while I've shown you items from the ROMP fair, I haven't actually shown you the ROMP fair!  It's just too beautiful of a build for me not to show you, so here goes!  Those of you who have been there will probably recognize some of these spots.  Those of you that haven't been really, really need to go!

Above:  The theme of this event is elegant kink.  It's not dark BD/sm dungeon minded - it's meant to show the beautiful side of "kinky" sexuality.  While dungeons are certainly not frowned on, people who explore the sexual possibilities in life aren't necessarily dark, brooding, and full of doom and gloom.  No; they enjoy beauty, whimsy, fantasy.  This build encompassed it gracefully and beautifully, and held elegance and surprise around every corner.  There are birds and flowers, lanterns and fountains tucked into niches and corners all over.  Definitely worth a visit at least for the beautiful build, even if you have no L$ to spend!

Above:  I had originally intended to do a "demonic" version of Whisp today.  I opted for a tamer version instead, given the beautiful backdrop.  Eyes and makeup are from Plastik, one of my favorite go-tos for unique looks, especially with makeup and eyes.  They have a spot at ROMP, too, featuring an exclusive set of collars!

Above and Below:  It's like a secret, naughty garden at the ROMP fair, full of gorgeous and lush plants, arches, and other decorations.  Quite a bit naughty; but still beautiful, like this outfit from Tameless that includes appliers for top and bottom!

The windlight settings that were chosen for the fair were lovely enough I didn't have to change them for photo ops!  Not often that happens - Just another way that the builder put thought and effort into every detail!

Above:  Perfect for summer, these shoes from Glow Designs are airy, shimmery, and sexy.  They are made to go with Slink high feet, which makes them perfect for me!  Available at the Designer Circle in pink or blue until August 2nd!

Above:  Remember back before Slink came out with mesh hands?  We were all longing for prim fingernails until someone finally came up with these.  Sculpted fingernails with jewelry became a brief, but well-loved rage!  This particular set is called "Eye of Davy Jones" from Virtual Insanity, who now makes Slink nails with highly realistic details!  This was an old gift from the Macabre Hunt.  Check out VI for new, updated items!  There's something new there all the time!

The breakdown:

Skin:  Panda Punx Body Shop - Maddie - Lovestruck - Sunkissed - Cleavage (has appliers for everything!)
Shape:  Mine!
Hair:  Tameless - Evie - Naturals - Roots - Lolas - 3 color packs: Naturals with all 30 natural colors, Fades with 30 ombre and tipped colors, and Fantasy with 30 fantasy colors.  All colors come as both rooted and non-rooted.  Each color pack is $249.  The Mega Pack with all colors are $499L..
Eyes:  Plastik - Haunt Collection - Lyahra (system and mesh)
Breasts:  Lolas - Delicq Rigged Mesh breasts
Feet:  Slink - AvEnhance - Rigged High - Female

Shoes:  Glow Designs - Straps Heels - Crystal Pink - at the Designer Circle
Nails/Rings:  Virtual Insanity - Eye of Davy Jones - old gift
Location:  ROMP fair! - Builder Hephaesteon Resident (Yes, the awesome SL photographer and blogger!), with the help of a drove of friends including Anke Hatchuk, Jax Lauria, and more!  You'll have to hit up Hephaesteon to get a more thorough listing, though most of his friends that I've met all tell me that it was him.  He's so humble!  And, straight from the Heph - "Oh wow, Whispering, thank you so much! I should note though that Kalia Firelyte was the builder of those beautiful sponsor shops we had - she custom whipped them out for us in just a handful of days."  Awesome shops, awesome of Kalia to do that!  And thank YOU, Hephaesteon!
