I made myself into a pretty angel for this post with Eilfie Sugarplum’s wings for Uber but mostly it was for Sands Leavitt’s darling look for Uber’s ethereal theme. I chose to wear his cute top with lace overlaying a tube top. It comes with a skirt but I chose Paul Lapointe’s sexier-than-hell leggings with the finest behind in SL. I clicked into this lighter purple shade to let that pretty booty show. I chose the purple/pink shades on the newest Glamistry boots to match to my hot leggings.

MissAllSunday Lemon  has created this gorgeous feathered hair for the Uber event, and I chose a beautiful ombre for my look. I added darling cherry blossom combs to my hair from Mohsin Paulino to match my necklace from Sigifaust. The best part of my look is Steffi Villota’s gorgeous skin for Tres Chic. I used her eye makeup from the HUD and then used Catwa’s lip tinting for my lips, both blended in. What a beautiful face Steffi has created for the Annie mesh head!

And the Band Played On, Part 2

I need to get new headphones. In my previous post, I stated that the MadPea Cursed Collection did not play music. It does indeed! When the instruments are set on the platform, they play the music from this video, composed by Harter Fall.

Each instrument plays individually as well! So add to the animations, the beautiful mesh construction, the gorgeous textures and the scripting, and you get quite a bang for your Linden at the Arcade . Find out more about Harter’s work on the collection on their website.

No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. ~ Halford Luccock

And the Band Played On

When I received the Mad Pea Cursed Collection gacha set for this month’s Arcade, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. A mysterious message came with it directing me to open the packages with the enclosed tools and then rez all the instruments on the stage platform. As I opened each crate and box (which come with clever animations to replicate unscrewing or crowbarring or loosening bolts), I saw each beautiful instrument emerge and magically move to its spot on the platform, regardless of where I rezzed it on the platform. Very spooky.

And the Band Played On

I had to try each instrument, of course, and they are all scripted to be played as instruments with darling animations. I erroneously stated originally that they don’t play music but they do, which you can find out about here. Since I anticipated wearing the baton and stepping to the podium as instructed, I wore the tuxedo dress Fhara Acacia has at Shiny Shabby and accompanied it with Zuri Rayna’s drop dead gorgeous new jewelry set. I ran to Steffi Villota’s store to get her new Paige applier for the Lelutka mesh head because it was just so gorgeous and topped my look with Chiaki Xue’s messy but elegant ‘do.

And the Band Played On

Ready to go, I stepped up to the podium, baton in hand, and raised my arms. Rather than being “cursed,” the entire set is blessed with whimsy and joy because as the animation started, the instruments raised up on their own and began dancing around the podium with musical notes. I did a little animated gif below to show because a photo just couldn’t explain how awesome this set is. The whole set of gacha pieces, singularly and as a collection, has been constructed with such care and skill and whimsy that I would recommend you run out and jam that machine with your linden. It’s just so fun!

You would think I would run out of hair, but no, there is so much great hair from Hair Fair, it’s everywhere! MissAllSunday Lemon has contributed four darling looks with a portion of the sales kicking back to Wigs for Kids.

MissAllSunday Lemon brought her top game to Hair Fair this year with four very different styles, making sure that a whole variety of hair style needs has been addressed, including a cute style that includes a great texture-change HUD for the headband. She even made darling ponytails!

You get a peek of the beautiful print on a dress from bodytothestars that he has at Season’s Story. Love the print and the style. I matched one of Monicuzza Babenco’s wood bead necklaces from Oh My Gacha to the outfit. My favorite part of the whole look is, however, Steffi Villota’s gorgeous new skin on a LeLutka mesh head. I spent a lot of time trying on her appliers, which are all lovely and quite different from skin to skin in features (besides the skin tones), and I fell in love with this one and its sprinkling of freckles over the nose, even in the lips. She includes several lovely lipsticks and sexy eyeliners. The combo of this skin on this head is delectable.
