Summer Lovin’

I hope ya’ll are enjoying the Summer season so far! I for one love the heat and I am so excited that it’s really only just getting started. If only the rest of the craziness in the world would come to an end, there’s a possibility we might actually get to enjoy it!

On a sad note though, this years round of Summerfest will soon be coming to a close. With only a few more shopping days left, if you haven’t stopped by to pick up some fun summer goodies, you might want to do so before it’s too late.

I was able to snag some great loot that I couldn’t possibly fit all into one picture, so I’m sure you’ll see more of it as the season progresses. But in the mean time, allow me to show you what I’ve had time to enjoy so far!

And total props to my amazing friend Naughty, who was oh so nice enough to hop on a pose-ball and let me photograph those sexy legs of hers. What’s even better, we didn’t tip over!

Not So Delicate

Is it me or does it feel like Uber is one of the hardest monthly events to get into? I mean, if there is something that I just have to have, I activate my teleport HUD and go afk to make a cup of coffee. And chances are when I get back I am still trying, banging my fists on the teleport screen to let me in. Most of the time though, I wait the almost required three days before even attempting to get into the cam shopping sim.

If you are a frequent shopper of events, please consider being courteous. As in, get your shit and get out. Don’t camp, don’t go afk once you’re in and for the love of God, keep your laggy attachments at home. I kid you not, I saw someone at Kustom9 on opening day riding around on a floating ball of fluff (it was a chibi of some sort). So not necessary. You don’t need to look cute when you go to a packed event. I promise you, we’re not looking at you or your fairy wings, or your 17 scripted accessories that are lagging the entire sim.

Oh, and event sim owners- a homestead is not your friend! A full region or more (possibly even cam shopping) is a must. Please don’t piss off the customer by having an event that no one can get into. Fortunately, the majority of the big events are set up to accommodate the needs of their clients but I’m still throwing that out there, ya know?

Anyway, I grabbed some really nice finds at the Uber event this month, so now that the initial rush of the opening day has passed, it’s definitely worth a look!

Summer Loving

With temperatures in the high 80s and a few beach days already behind me, it’s Summer here in Florida as far as I’m concerned. Everyone who knows me, knows that Summer is my favorite time of the year. Short shorts, a summer glow and my favorite chair in the surf is really all a girl needs to enjoy this time of year.

Cielo from Moss & Mink has totally hit home with a new tufted chaise and oversized pouf, available at faMESHed. It’s seriously perfect for my favorite Summer activity. My Osmia and Navy & Copper pairing have me all warm and bubbly inside over the matching sweet mint of the these stripes and headband. I’m in love.

I also went a tone darker with new Glam Affair skin Zoe. I love the fierce eyebrows she’s sporting and the way this ‘summer glow’ highlighter from Mai Bilavio compliments her pouty lips.

Rogue

I tried the new Genus Project bento head when it first came out and for as long as I fiddled with and tweaked my shape, I couldn’t seem to get it just right. Now, as I’ve been wanting to incorporate another mesh- take two. I started experimenting with various skins and makeups and finally ended up with this stunning combination, and one of my new favorite looks.

Roxy is by Glam Affair and was actually released back in July, around the time that the brand underwent some major changes in their skins. I am so glad I went back and found her because as you can see, she is perfect. I did pair the look with the the nude lipstick from the Jessica gacha by Genus, but it really ties the whole look together.

If you haven’t at least tried a demo of this mesh head, you should. While it is still in it’s Beta stage you can grab the full product for 3,000L$, with a free upgrade to the future full version. If not, the full version with end up costing you 5,500L$. As I’ve always been a huge fan of Genesis Lab mesh heads before this change, I think that this price is a steal. There was even a recent update on 10/31, which includes:

  • Neckline issues as well as tinting options
  • Skin tinting options
  • Hide button for the lacrimal
  • Two sizes of the main HUD
  • Separate eye move/resize texture options

Of course, while it is still going through the beta stage there isn’t as big a market for Genus appliers just yet, but you can still find some skins available at a few stores, including (not a complete list) :

Annabelle

With Halloween just around the corner, there are lots of creepy – and bloody – new releases hitting the grid. In case you haven’t heard, the Arcade has even opened with a specialty pop-up round dedicated to October and yes, Halloween! There are lots of bloody inspired gachas to grab here and at the Epiphany, just in time!

Aida has released some amazing new Glam Affair skins for both LeLutka and Catwa heads for the two events. This Annabelle inspired dollface is horrifyingly good and ties my whole look together!

What is your favorite part of Halloween? Do you celebrate? I would love to see all of your creepy outfits and costumes as we get closer to the big day!
