Doll Face

Hey you! I’m back, and today I’m going to show you the sweetest outfit Ill ever put together! Past few days ago, I was hanging around the grid, shopping, hunting lucky chairs (did you know you can find the cutest things in lucky chairs? ) and even receiving guest at my place wearing this outfit! I didn’t know there were such

cute things in Lucky Chairs, but you won’t fool me anymore! I’ll wait until there’s an A in that chair!! I have spent hours and hours waiting for an A in Mezzo, to get this cute school bag I am carrying today! Isn’t awesome? Mezzo was an unknown store for me, japanese, small and with accessories for every taste! Doesn’t

have many things yet, but I found cool things, like the bag and the belt I am wearing, both with animations on it! The belt is amazing, and has lots of stuff, meaning prims – and it looks so cute!

Carnie Flair

After I rezzed the invite for Festivale‘s PreParty Opening, I got nervous. I had nothing to wear to fit this theme. So I turned to my fashion consultant, Express Zenovka, for advice and to help.  Of course, he was already dressed!  Express pops over to help check out what I do have before really going out to shop. After seeing his pink and green “clown”, I got so inspired!

We dashed over to *katat0nik* for the ruffled dresses.  I was so not use to having a guy that knows about fashion and having opinions about things I wear. Kinda diggin’ it, ya know! We went one by one through each of the dresses … that was until I saw “Very Cherry”. I was slightly too anxious to buy but with his calmness I kept looking … still coming back to this one dress. 

The “Very Cherry” is not my usual flair but so worth the $600L for all the layers and that adorable mini hat.  I think I was really sold on the Fleur de Lis pasties (shh don’t tell anyone).

Heading back to my studio, I knew exactly what boots I wanted and currently had in inventory. During the recent Dilly Dolls $25L sale, I picked up the wedgey boots.  Again not my usual pick and not really sure why I got them. Sure they are cute but completely functional (fully scripted with color change on all the pieces and sizeablilty). Maybe that’s why I couldn’t resist! One goofy thing is that one sole is slightly too large and its no mod. Not really noticeable but a nag in the back of my perfectionist’s mind.

Moving along, I needed to break up the cherry theme.  I tossed on argyle stockings from Sn@tch and tinted them to green to bring out the pinks and green detailing.  This addition is subtle but really pulls together the pink and greens in the dress and boots.

The hair is another element tinted. It started as Pink Burnt and ended up berry toned to match the deeper pink tones in the hat and dress.  Tinting is a skill I need to develop more but pretty easy to do making anything blend better.

Choosing the right skin was the true challenge.  The nipples on most skins are large not being able to hide behind the pasties.  Thankfully, I had an awesome freebie, or maybe it was really a dollarbie from Frick. I was so focused on the nipple size, I wasn’t paying much attention to the makeups.  Until I cammed away to look at the overall look, I realized this makeup was the perfect look.  Soft hot pink lips and the eye makeup flourishes with the Cake lashes were spot on!  … and the nipples fit the pasties!

Even popped on that AO from Ana_mation again. You know, the one I mentioned in the last mashup post.  The AO is called TomBoy … and helped finish the look. Time to party!

I really need to send a huge thanks to Ex for the help.  Even tho at the party he confessing that he pointed me to this direction to “match” him.  Little stinker! *hugs*

Festivale

By Luna Jubilee  //  SLife  //  No Comments

Festival is Open!!

Dove Swanson of Long Awkward Pose and Autumn of Pixel Dust have finally completed an amazingly unique themed sim, Festivale.  I’m loving the carnival themes that run completely through their own stores and the mini shopping district. 

Earier today, I ran back over to browse the other aspects of the sim. Photogs, get out your cameras, tons of niches that are perfect for pics!

I wish Dove and Autumn all the best on their new adventure (great party btw!).  *hugs*

Pictured: Express Zenovka
**I’m thinking of doing a mashup of highlighting my party’s outfit. Completely inspired by Festivale’s theme.

Annah Croft

And now, you must be thinking I am

nuts! What is on with this title?! Well, I am… kinda! LoL I have discovered this amazing boots at Bukka, and the moment I saw it I clicked on buy without thinking twice! After that I start thinking and I even commented with boyfriend and friends “why do I need this kind of boots? It’s not like I hang out like Lara Croft or something”. Well, maybe I do hang out like Lara Croft! I was lucky to grab the belt at the lucky chair in Bukka too (after several hours I admit!) and that’s how Annah become Annah Croft! Ok, can I go back to the belt now? The belt is amazing and it totally fits the spirit – it has maps and a compass…

I got all adventurous and even got some guns to get in the spirit – ok I just brought the demos home, ‘cuz it’s not like I am going to really shoot someone! The skin is an offer from Tuli, I don’t know from when, but it’s perfect! I have all this bruises in my face and for the hair I needed a simple ponytail, nothing too preppy! So I put on the Philotic Energy simple ponytail – I modified it a little, to take the bangs out of my eyes… I mean if I need to shoot a panther I need to see the panther and not my hair in front of my eyes…

What I have also modified is the skirt. This skirt comes with a belt and I don’t need 2 belts, so I removed the belt attached to the skirt to make this look. And to finish it, the leather jacket from Ce Cubic Effect and the afghan stole from :sey:

Now I am totally ready to venture myself into ancient tombs and ruins. And even to

encounter some enemies along the way. Bring them on!!! Byeeeee

Luv,
Ann
