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!

In Bloom

Weather changes moods
Spring is here again

~ “In Bloom” as done by Sturgill Simpson

In Bloom

Spring is springing up all over this side of the world, and it’s very welcome. It was a Game of Thrones kind of winter. I took a walk on the Gates of Dreams sim, which has bloomed for spring too, in a new outfit I assembled from separates. First, I wear Hilly Haalan’s darling mesh top which includes a ton of mix and match textures for the elements of the top like the trim, bow, and inside. My jeans are pastel goodness from Poulet Koenkamp (they also come in more jewel tones) and have a great HUD for choosing the belt and stud colors. My shoes are Senzati0n Domenitzo’s pretty pair for Shiny Shabby, which opened today. My poses from Katya Valeska are also available at Shiny Shabby.

In Bloom

I always love the looks Umazuma Metaluna comes up with for different appliers, and this time is no exception. She has created a freckled beauty for the LeLutka mesh heads. I added no makeup to the face—it was perfect “as is” for this look. However, I did use Uma’s freckle add-on HUD for the Maitreya mesh body. It cleverly applies freckles over the clothing layer so you can match your skin tone to your freckled face. Lovespun’s lovely hair for Hairology is a casual look that suits my springtime outlook and a hand full of rings from Sigifaust, made for Shiny Shabby as a gacha, completes my look.

Kodachrome

Kodachrome

“Kodachrome…
it gives us those nice, bright colors,
gives us the greens of summers,
makes ya think all the world’s a sunny day,
Oh yeah!
I’ve got a Nikon camera,
I’d love to take a photograph,
so mama don’t take…
my Kodachrome away…”
~ “Kodachrome” by Paul Simon

RFL Home & Garden is still going on. I got a chance to walk around after folks had set up. I indiscriminately bought things in vendors to make sure donations went to RFL—you should too. In fact, maybe you should get the scripted clock and bamboo from McChris Flanagan’s retro set, a modernist furniture grouping that reminds me of my parents’ first living room set and stereophonic sound system (in hifi, not wifi). With color change built into the menus so you can change the insets to yellow, orange or bright green and some rather humorous accessories (like that vinyl record from The Lindens and the 8-track player), the set is a virtual testament to kitsch. I added Cain Maven’s retrofuture hanging lamp and Elin Egoyan’s bright and beautiful painting to my living room and I was set.

Kodachrome

I wearing Poulet Koenkamp’s lovely skirt and top set for the Instruments this round with her gorgeous textures. Shoes from Saki Galiazzo include a very versatile HUD for color change on different parts of the shoe and fit the Maitreya feet perfectly. I love the skin applier Monicuzza Babenco made for the LeLutka mesh heads, especially the blonde choices because they are so nicely done. My hair from Tabata Jewell for the Hairology event includes a panel in the HUD that lets you change the hair tie.

September Song

September Song

“The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward. […] The trees overhead made a great sound of letting down their dry rain.”~  Ray Bradbury

Photo by Frenchy25

My pal Frenchy25, a terrific photographer, caught me wandering around St. Pete’s City, looking at NevaCrystall’s newest sim, and he played paparazzi (or so he said) and captured a shot, which I show above. I was pretty impressed he caught me because I was stumbling around, trying to settle on a spot for a photo—hard to do because they are so many great spots on this decorative sim. For this photo, I chose Poulet Koenkamp’s gorgeous new jacket for The Instruments, available in several different prints with solids. Poulet does not always make her own mesh but she does such fabulous textures, it really doesn’t matter. Her texture work puts her head and shoulders above many. My skirt is Kiddo Oh’s fashionable and well-fitting find at Tres Chic, custom mesh fitted perfectly to the Maitreya body. And my boots from Sora Tatham for Shiny Shabby are also fitted to the Maitreya body and perfect for an autumn outfit.

September Song

Catwa Clip recently came out with her new mesh head which includes expressions and makeup possibilities (which I hope to feature on another blog). I put Umazuma Metaluna’s beautiful new skin just for this mesh head on , clicked my makeup choice into place, and discovered a beautiful woman. With Uma’s wonderful eyes for this month’s Cosmetic Fair, I made a soulful beauty. Both Nikohl Hax and xxxsaltandpepperxxx off eclectic jewelry at this month’s Shiny Shabby, both in custom mesh.

Warm Winds

Warm Winds

We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost. ~ Henry Rollins

Warm Winds

The evenings are still balmy here, which is fine with me because I am not looking forward to winter at all, especially as it’s been the past two years. So a stroll outside on one of the last warm evenings of the year is in order. Poulet Koenkamp’s sexy top with optional bolero comes with a texture change HUD for the bolero (which can be made invisible), the top, and the chain decoration. And unlike many creators, Poulet is not afraid of prints, creating a gorgeous satiny texture for these tops. I paired it with the leggings from Kiddo Oh’s new outfit for The Secret Affair, which I am sure she envisioned as more a fantasy look but I loved them as just wearable leggings, especially since they were made for the Maitreya body. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s great heels for the Body Modification Expo and Mea Carnell’s fall-themed leafy necklace for the Cosmo Room complete the look.

Warm Winds

I ran to Kustom9 to try to rescue a lady from a life of slavery to the gacha for the pieces from helloaiko. I did not get the rare she wanted but I did get some others, including this cute little kitty backpack. Another great find from Kustom9 is this skin from Inka Mexicola. I am thrilled to see her putting out new skins and this one is exquisite with its sophisticated brow and youthful glow. Kuranosuke Kamachi has put this sexy casual hair in her store, versatile for many looks.
