Poulet Koenkamp has come up with a darling look for this month’s On9, an East Asian-influenced minidress with a cut up the side of the thighs and an asymmetrical top. Fit to the body, either a mesh body or system body, it’s a hot look, especially paired with the lace up heels from Skyler Lebed that she is featuring at Romp and the cute earrings AvaGardner Kungler has done for On9.

MissAllSunday Lemon has generously made three fantastic ‘dos for Hair Fair 2016, a portion of each sale benefitting Wigs for Kids. This mix of high bangs and high ponytail with locks framing the decolletage is a sexy fun look.

Now

MissAllSunday also offers a whimsical side ponytail with a braided front. I saw a girl wearing this style at Summerfest (the RL one, not the SL one) this year and it was darling on her.

Now

Finally, a braid frames the face for this long style, perfect for RP or everyday wear. As always, MissAllSunday rocks the Hair Fair!

There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can’t prove that there aren’t any, so shouldn’t we be agnostic with respect to fairies? ~ Richard Dawkins

Believing

KittyCatS recently came out with a new line of kitties that are based on fantasy with unicorn horns. Called KittyCornS, they are darling little kitties with great patterns and a sparkling horn. KittyCats has even made two that are tributes to David Bowie and Prince (see the “Purple Rain” kitty below). When you breed two KittyCornS, you get a special kitten!

Believing

Of course, this fairy is dancing through the fields when she comes upon these magical KittyCornS. She kneels down and finds they are sweet and gentle and just as fantastic as she is. It seems the theme for Enchantment this round has inspired many creators, including Erielle Deschanel and Mariska Simons, who made this fairy-themed lingerie with matching wings and headpiece. The wings and headpiece come with comprehensive HUDs that allow you to switch out colors on the tendrils, flowers, etc. The lingerie comes with a lace bodysuit (great lingerie on its own or with another outfit) and the beautifully fit corset and skirt (which are separate pieces for mix and match with other outfits too). I accessorized with Mea Carnell’s darling daisy jewelry and flat sandals from Senzati0n Domenitzo, also featured at Enchantment.

Believing

Wavy curly fantasy hair is Luka Hauster’s perfect offering for Hairology. With knotted bits and gently waves flowing down, it’s a gorgeous look for my fairy, especially with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin applier on the Karin head from LeLutka for the Ultra Event. I added Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy lipstick, the rare prize at the Gacha Garden, to light up the pink in my look.

I’ve been stung by a star seed honey
He shone love like a lightning honey
I been hit by a star seed honey
His love burns like a lightning honey
I’m right here I’m your star crossed lover
I lie here like a starless lover
I’ll die here as your phantom lover
I never learn, I never learn

Callie told me the So caL sim was recently redone by Beloved Ruby, who is quite a talented artist, so I went over and Callie was right. The sim is gorgeous—picturesque and beautifully laid out. I’ll be coming back to take more photos! This sexy dress from Numer0Un0 that he made for Shiny Shabby stood out with its great textures and cutouts. The dress I wore was marked as “beta” for fit and I would say there might me a few problems, easily fixed with shape changes. For example, I upped the love handles to get the waist to expand the rigged dress enough to skim my waist without cutting in. I paired sexy heels from Hilly Haalan with the look. Hilly always offers a ginormous selection of colors on a HUD with all her items so you can swap out colors and match things up perfectly. I love it! I accessorized with gacha bracelets from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby and Lapointe and Bastchild’s earrings for 100 Block.

My long hair is a lovely, pulled-to-the-side look from VivienMarli for Shiny Shabby. Monicuzza Babenco has made another spectacular applier for Shiny Shabby, and I splurged and got the new Aisha head from Catwa Clip to feature it. I am glad that Catwa decided to separate out the expressions, mouth styles, and talk features to decrease the pricing. It was too hard deciding to scratch up the money to get the new heads with features I rarely used simply to blog skins for my favorite designers. With features broken out, I could get both of the new heads and the add-on lip styles without worrying about paying for features I never used. The price was much more palatable for my needs. It also allows fans to dabble with the heads without getting in over their heads.

One of my favorite clubs in SL also seems to have one of the cheesiest names, so let’s just call it Teqi’s Sunrise and leave it at that for purposes of this blog. Teqi Falta, owner of one of the hottest sex clubs in SL, made this side club to feature Latin music and dancing and it’s really a kick, a great immersion into a sultry club with perfect dances and music.

I wore this dress perfect for clubbing from MoonCelestia for the Mesh Body Addicts. It fits to a T, as you can see, and comes with a great HUD for color change. Materials in the dress reflect the lights in Teqi’s club in a fabulous way. (Those same lights give lots of ambiance to the club but make it a stinker to photo there.) I found a cute wraparound bracelet from Sae Luan on MP to add a little gold to my look. I paired Senzati0n Domenitzo’s mules for Shiny Shabby’s next round (opens today).

Skin Fair is still on and they have removed those pesky script monitors so if you want to shop without worrying about that, go now. There are scads of amazing skins, including this applier set from Monicuzza Babenco, which gave my avatar a beautiful Filipina look, I think. Long straight hair with bangs from Ikira Frimon creates an elegance to my club look, especially since it comes with a wide variety of textures.

It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds. ~ Aesop

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

Love Birds

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

Oh but dreams come true on
Manhattan Avenue

Manhattan Avenue

The setting for this grouping of furniture from the RFL Home & Garden Expo and the first anniversary Shiny Shabby is deep in the city with Nellie McKay’s satin voice. Stephen came over and gave me a tutorial in color theory in decorating, starting with the deep purple sofa and chairs Victor Newchurch made as his donation items for the Expo. With yogjio’s deco fireplace as the centerpiece and Tess Spargel’s mirror over the mantle (both donation items), we accessorized with Piraiyah Novikov’s glamorous pieces for his gacha at the Expo. I clothed the windows with the city view with curtains from Piraiyah for Shiny Shabby (which I tinted slightly), and I topped the mantle with finials from Elsa Wellesley’s gacha at Shiny Shabby. Kaerri Rae makes some of the most beautiful flower arrangements in SL, and this orchid is one of her donation items for the Expo. (She also happens to be one of the hard-working organizers, with her partner Cain Maven and bestie Reven Rosca, for the Expo). I thought Synnaria Vlodovic’s gothic chandelier with purple roses might add a kind of a eclectic addition to the décor.

Manhattan Avenue

My Manhattan cosmopolitan might be dressed up for a night out in Hilly Haalan’s sexy mini with a color change HUD that allows me to tint the main dress a blackberry with fuchsia insets and pink studs. The one dress could provide hundreds of combos with such versatility. My jewelry is Mea Carnell’s contribution to Cosmopolitan Room, studded with rhinestones. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s sexy shoes for Shiny Shabby complete my look.

Manhattan Avenue

Monicuzza Babenco has created a gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh heads for Shiny Shabby this round, and I spent some time messing with eye makeup and lipstick to make this look. VivienMarli’s beautiful and barely controlled tumble of curls gives a wildness to this chic Manhattanite’s sexy look.
