the owls are not what they seem

I’m in recovery mode from a wonderful night out with my work friends last night so I decided to keep it simple today, here’s who I’m featuring:

The Arcade… 
Yes! It’s almost that time again, The Arcade opens it’s doors for another round on 1st June, I hope you’re ready! While you wait, check out the shopping guide here and plan your shop. Here’s some handy info about the event:

  • runs from 1st to 30th June
  • there are player rewards which are automatically delivered after the 25th play of the machine (machines with a player reward will have this displayed next to the machine)
  • a brand new souvenir has been added to the stand, the beautiful carousel

I’m featuring Arcade items by kunst, Atomic, Half-Deer and katat0nik in today’s post.

Half-Deer…
Halogen Magic of Half-Deer has won my heart yet again with the adorable Birbies gacha set for The Arcade, one of two Half-Deer collections at the event. My friends here are one of the rares in the set, Noctua, but every one of these birbies is amazing! Here’s the key so you can see all of the cuteness.

Monso…
This pretty hair by Monso is available now at Uber. The Hani hair is a gorgeous, loose high ponytail in the signature wispy style I love so much. Just look how pretty the fringe is too!

Offbeat… 
My cute cropped tee is from Offbeat’s too much gacha set for Lost & Found, I’m wearing the rare version which has the bracers and comes with a colour change hud with six colour combinations for the tee and six colours for the front detail. The commons are various colours of cropped tee without the additional detailing but still super cute and there are also some pretty wristbands in the set.

An Lar Poses… 
My pose (except the hand gesture) is from An Lar’s Rose Series which was at the latest round of ROMP, unfortunately the event has now closed but I’m sure you’ll be seeing this set in store very soon.

I’m wearing here two fabulous new outfits by offbeat which are kind of time sensitive so I wanted to let you know about them.

The look on the left is from a 2 week limited gacha at the mainstore called wee woo! This outfit is one of the common items believe it or not and includes the skirt, body and cardi as a one-piece outfit. They also come in non-skirt varieties and a fab rare which you can see here.

The look on the right is from a brand new and limited gacha for the upcoming round of Limit8, again I’m wearing one of the common dresses in the set, it’s a cheeky little number if you get my meaning, put your big pants on! You can see the whole set here.

Dark Days

I’ve got some great new stuffs to share with you today, starting with the left hand outfit, which is the rare item in DAMI’s new Hello Friday set for The Season’s Story. Common items in the set are cute sweaters, hats and skirts. The rare is an all in one outfit with jacket layer which comes with a hud to change the colour of the top and skirt sections.

The jacket/hoody combo on the right is another Season’s Story rare, this time by offbeat, from the Stay Weird, Stay Different set. Commons in the set are baseball caps with the rares being five different colour versions of the jacket/hoody with a hud to switch the polo shirt and print on and off.

The leggings on the right are a new release by Addams at their mainstore, the Tamara Gym Leggings come in a ton of colours and options but look too cool to keep just for the gym, I think they suit this look very well. The fatpack includes a whopping 40 colour options and both the fatpack and single colour options have a hud to change the borders, sides and netting options as well as turn the bottoms on and off.

I’ve put together a great look today with offbeat’s rare Overfit Jumper from The Taste of Winter gacha at SaNaRae together with new release Ornella High Rise Jeans and SixtySeven Sandals by Addams.

The offbeat gacha rare is a lovely jacket with sweater and shirt layers underneath, it comes with a colour change hud with six jacket options and either black or white for the inner shirt layer. There’s both female and male fits but be aware that this is one size fitted mesh so do demo before playing.

The new jeans and sandals by Addams are awesome, the jeans are just above the ankle in length and skinny fit. They have a lovely little zip detail on the back of the legs and the crease detailing is great. The fatpack comes with 28 colours as well as 2 zip and button options, you also get the zip and button options with single colour packs.

The sandals are adorable! I love the nerdiness of a sandal and sock combo but if you don’t then no worries, you can turn off the socks! The fatpack comes with 39 colours for the sandal including three metallic exclusive colours, 40 sock colours for middle and borders so you can mix and match, 2 sole and 2 buckle colours. For single colour purchases you get 10 sock options for middle and border plus the sole and buckle options.

My hair today is a new release by Entwined for The Crossroads which is now open for the January round. This cute updo is nice and casual with some lovely loose strands, perfect for this look.

A place for everything

Hi lovelies, today I’m showing off a few more pieces from the current round of The Forest. I’m really loving the new trend in single payment events and subscription boxes, I find them excellent value as well as great fun.

These events aren’t for everyone though and that’s where The Forest is a little bit different. There are two options with this event, option one is to pay a single price for the month (between 1k and 2k depending on the number of participants) and pick up everything, or if there’s just a couple of bits and bobs you fancy you could just buy those.

Of course you get better value for money with option one but it’s great to have the choice! The best thing is you can check out everything that’s available at the event before deciding.

I’m wearing…

Only a few more sleeps until Christmas and three days left in work for me so I’m finally starting to wind down and relax, despite still not having finished my shopping yet. I thought I’d do a cosy scene today with this cute outfit by offbeat at Limit8 which is a one piece skirt, top and cardi combo with posed hands holding this adorable kitty! This rare comes in several different colourways.

To keep the cuteness going I’m wearing Monso’s latest ‘do at Kustom 9, these adorable pigtails come in all the usual colour hud options and this style is unrigged too. My hairband is another piece from Tentacio’s Crazy Girl Needs set at Arcade and goes perfectly with this look.

My pose is from Kirin’s latest set at Kustom 9, the Claire pose pack contains 6 sitting poses, a nice variety of seated and kneeling poses which will come in useful for all kinds of pics.

For my set today I’ve included a nice selection of decor items from The Arcade as well as some favourite pieces of mine, you’ll find all the details below, enjoy!
