PocketGacha… 
Today marks the start of a brand new gacha event and a brand new way to play gacha. PocketGacha uses an amazing new hud system that means you can play the gachas from anywhere. No more waiting to get in and grab the goodies, they’re immediately available to you as soon as the hud goes live.

This will be a monthly event, you can grab the hud on the marketplace (link at the bottom of this post) or by joining the in world group where it will be automatically sent out. You can either give the hud permissions to allow you to pay directly, or, if you prefer, you can purchase tokens for use with the hud.

This stunning hair by tram and my glasses and necklace by e.marie are all at this brand new gacha event! You’ll find links to the website and flickr group below the credits.

Knot & Co… 
There are some pretty new releases at Knot & Co this week including this beautiful top by Coco. The top comes in a few different colours and there are some gorgeous trousers available too. Both items come in Slink and Maitreya versions.

ISON… 
I’m loving this plastic bomber jacket by ISON which is at the current round of Collabor88. It comes in Maitreya fit and in black, clear (worn) and holographic versions.

An Lar Poses… 
My pose is from the Cynaide Mini Series by An Lar at The Coven event. This lovely set of three poses with mirrors are a birthday gift at the event so make sure you get them while you can!

The Epiphany CURELESS & Half-Deer… 
The bulk of my set today is made up from CURELESS’ new gacha set at The Epiphany, Yokai Chronicles. The set includes clothing, accessories and decor items, all amazing quality. I’m wearing the rare Shrine Maiden outfit and skirt, and the dolls and skull are also from this awesome set. I’ve also used a piece from {aii}’s Yokai themed set, the two sets complement each other very well.

The pretty flowers in my hair are from Half-Deer’s Blossom Baby set, also at The Epiphany. This gacha is a selection of pretty floral hair accessories including cat ears and antlers. I chose the simplicity of this beautiful white hydrangea band for today.

The Season’s Story… 
The sheep horns I’m wearing are from Maru Kado’s set at The Season’s Story, the horns come in lots of sweet colours. I’m also wearing these pretty anklets by darkendStare which come in 7 colours and have six metal options for the bell in each pack.

{-Maru+Kado-}+-+Sheep+Horn+Gacha

Sari-Sari…
Sari-Sari have a fantastic new release at Kagami. The skybox with ribbons decor and built-in pose stand with 6 bento poses. The ribbons and pose stand are adjustable separately so you can fit the ribbons to your body, this really is a lovely creation

Monso… 
This pretty short hair is by Monso at Collabor88. Sora’s had a busy month with lots of lovely new hairs coming out but this is one of my favourites. I love how the hair falls over the eye at the front, it looks so natural and beautiful.

Cerberus Xing… 
These great face markings are by Cerberus Xing at Kagami. The eyeshadow and face marks are available separately. The eyeshadow is tintable which is a great bonus and the forehead markings come with add-on gemstones in five colours.

Monso… 
I’m wearing the new Lily hair by Monso for Kustom 9, I adore how girly this style is while also being carefree and messy, a perfect style for the beach. The hair comes in two sizes, each with two chest options.

Hive…
The lifeguard chair in the background is a new store release by hive, the chair comes in two options, normal and abandoned. The chair is beautifully made and textured, perfect for any rustic beach location.

Half-Deer, keke & Kalopsia @ Collabor88… 
A few of my sponsors are at Collabor88 this round, keke I’ve blogged recently with the beautiful wild allium flowers, I couldn’t pass up another opportunity to show them off though!

Kalopsia have a whimsical little set at the event called Hilly’s Hitchhiking Set which includes the signpost, camera and suitcases shown here. These suitcases are a little table and there’s also a suitcases chair available.

Half-Deer has made some adorable sweater clutter. Clutter is something I love in SL and Halogen makes me so happy with these thoughtful little creations. The sweaters come in four shapes and three packs of two colours.

Dahlia & Ionic @ The Chapter Four… 
My pretty tassel jewellery is by Dahlia for The Chapter Four. The bracelet and necklace each come with a hud which includes 3 metal and 4 tassel colour options.

The magnificent build in the background as well as the table, fruit and foody bits are from ionic’s latest gacha set, La Haciendita, also at The Chapter Four. The build itself is just gorgeous and all the little bits and bobs are detailed and beautiful. Here’s the key so you can view the set in more detail:

Knot & Co… 
This week Knot & Co has some lovely new releases including this awesome dress by O V H. The Ophelia dress comes in four colour options, I love how casual and beachy it is! It’s backless too which is a lovely detail. The dress comes in standard sizes and a fitmesh size, I did have to alpha some bits and shrink my chest size for a perfect fit but the results are worth it. Make sure you demo!

FaMESHed… 
From FaMESHed I’m wearing a cute bracelet by AITUI, summery shoes by bleich which come in 6 colours and with fits for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya and TMP as well as male Slink and TMP. The red flowers are also at the event, by Cube Republic.

The Project Se7en…
Look at my adorable fox babies! These cuties are by KITE, part of the Foxy Pups gacha set. They’re all gorgeous and here’s the key to prove it! The pretty mailbox by Vagabond is also at this event.

The Crystal Heart Festival & Cerberus Xing… 
I can’t get enough of all the pretty at The Crystal Heart Festival, if you love cute, then you need to check it out. I’m wearing pieces from Cerberus Xing and Vincue’s latest collaboration, Airie. The corset, undies and wings are rares in the set. One of the standout pieces for me are the wings, which come in gold or silver. The texturing on these is so beautiful as I hope you can see from the photo.
