Today has been a big day in the event world, FaMESHed is now open for it’s 5th anniversary round and what a special one it is! The build by [[RH]], chickens by JIAN, rings by Astralia, bag by Minimal, and lantern by Trompe L’oeil are all available now at the event. As it’s an anniversary round you’ll also find some generous gifts on offer for FaMESHed update group members.

The Secret Hideout has also opened it’s doors to a world of cute, I’ve never seen so many pretty things in one place, you really must check it out. These Frilly Ears by LovelyAlien are proving popular, especially as they’re bento!

Another newly opened event is The Gacha Garden, where you’ll find this gorgeous hair gacha by pr!tty, you can play for the hairs but other items in the set include a selection of hairbands and other pretties too.

While all of this is going on, don’t forget that The Kawaii Project is still open too! DAMI’s gacha for the event is a set of these super sweet off the shoulder dresses in various colours and patterns. I also adore Schadenfreude’s shoes which come in Slink fit and unrigged versions which I got to fit Lara just fine.

The last mention today goes to The Horror! at Memento Mori who has made some fabulous eye appliers and eyebags on a mesh layer! This is such a good idea especially if you like to wear a lot of different layers. The eyebags come with a strength hud but you can also adjust the transparency on the mesh so it really gives you a lot of control over how they look.

Here we are in our lovely and cosy Spring Kitchenette by Vespertine for The Arcade, surrounded by those little essentials of life like chocolate cake and fondue! The little madam is enjoying her lovely (if creepy) new toys by Nomad, also at the Arcade.

Other Arcade goodies here are my lovely outfit by M.BIRDIE, kitchen table and chairs by Brixley, more kitchen accessories by Pixel Mode, my hair by Tableau Vivant, fireplace by Scarlet Creative , suitcase chair by Trompe Loeil, step stool by tarte and yummy strawberries by Lost Junction.

With all this wonderful stuff on offer, The Arcade is well worth a visit, or a second visit if you’ve already been.

An Lar have a lovely new pose set at The Liaison Collaborative called Dahlia, there are a couple of poses in the set which are great for leaning on things, I’ve used number 3 here. The set includes 5 poses with mirrors. Keke are also at The Liaison Collaborative with a lovely little set of water glasses and bottles which are beautifully made as always.

You may notice my posts becoming a bit briefer over the coming weeks as I’m preparing to move house on 24th March. I’ll try my best to keep it business as usual but I have a ton of packing to do!

020815-Amphitrite W

Here’s my take on Amphitrite, one of the Nereids of greek mythology, wife of Poseidon and queen of the sea.

I have another ton of goodies from The Gacha Garden for you today, seriously, it’s such a fantastic event you need to go there, right now! well, after you’ve read this!

My long dress and bracelet are by Salt & Pepper, part of the Hippie Deluxe set. The long dress is a rare and comes in two colours, I’m wearing the sunrise version here. The set also includes lots of short versions of this dress in various colours and the Seed of Inspiration is a beautiful hair flower. I love the delicate textures on this dress which has a gorgeous flower print, the straps are beaded which you can’t see in the picture but trust me, they’re beautiful. Fitting was easy with this beauty with no alpha required in the chest area.

Over the dress I’m wearing the various pieces of Chocolate Atelier’s Tiffany Bubble Dress, another Seed of Inspiration item. I really love this piece, so unusual! I’ve used the “hat” for the bubbles in my hands and a skirt for the bubbles around the bottom of my dress.

My beaded headdress (with hair included!) and necklace are part of Aphorism’s Selene set. The headpiece is the Seed of Inspiration piece and comes with different hair colour options. Other pieces in the set are shoes, bracelets and dresses, all in beautiful muted tones.

I’m wearing a second headpiece on top of this (as you know I like to do!), the Oceania Crown by Bite & Claw at Totally Top Shelf. This beauty comes with a colour change hud so you’re sure to find an option you like, I just love the pearl strings on this which fit well with my sea nymph theme.

The cute seahorses are by Fawny, again at The Gacha Garden. These are two of the common companions in the set which also has rare mounts! Aren’t they adorable?

Just a quick post for you today, I was thrilled and honoured yesterday when the lovely Janire of Belle Epoque asked if I would take some photos for her store. This is the first one I’ve done using her pretty Matilda dress in pink. The dress is a lovely shape and I found it easy to fit with Lara, it comes in two other colours as well so be sure to go and check out the store!

Also a quick mention for The Fantasy Collective which is still going strong, the boat is by Jian and has tintable curtains! There’s a display version which I’ve used here and also a vehicle version. My beautiful face jewelry is by Wicca’s Wardrobe and comes with both a right and left hand version, so pretty! The bracelets are by MINIMAL, I love the simplicity of them, they’re beautiful without being ostentatious.

The outdoor sofa is part of a set by Kalopsia at Kustom 9, the pillows are texture changeable by clicking and come with some lovely colour options. The poses included are really cute and the set comes with some other lovely bits and bobs for decorating your outdoor lounge.

And yes… I’m still loving my Chloe head by Genesis Lab!
