Witchy Weekend

I absolutely love Halloween! Granted, trick or treating in Florida is often way too hot to enjoy, but the concept is still totally awesome. While I am too old when it comes to begging for candy, we’re never too old to play dress up! Am I right?

In SL, the possibilities are endless and for the first time, the Arcade is sponsoring a special pop-up holiday edition of its gacha event! That’s right, all you can play Halloween gachas are available from October 6th-31st. You can check out the shopping guide here!

There are tons of new releases and themed items to create the perfect Halloween costume. I’m wearing new releases from Osmia, Glam Affair and Scandalize, among others and added these perfect folded top boots from Essenz to finish off my witchy inspired ensemble.

What is your favorite part about Halloween?

Lady in Red

Lady in Red

I honestly believe that for every little black dress, every girl should also have a little red one in her closet. There is something sexy and brazen and assertive about the color, so why not make it a wardrobe staple? And really, with so many different hues of red, it’s a color that can look great on anyone.

Osmia has this new Jasmine dress around for Kustom9. It’s silk, and short and a bit revealing and yes, it has red! I couldn’t let all of this skin baring sexiness go to waste, so I paired it with new release Tisha hair from Phoenix, which is available at the mainstore for faMESHed go. I love the wavy, crimped curls! Tisha also comes with a HUD that includes two different bangs options, as well as single or double buns.

Meet Sybil

Sybil is one of the many new appliers for Catwa that Glam Affair has released since the new tones and features have been updated. She’s available for the Catya head, but as you can see I am wearing Magy, my latest obsession when it comes to mesh heads. Also included with the new tones are highlighting and contouring options, which I feel work best on the Catwa heads, as you can use both an upper and layer option for each type of applier.

You can grab Sybil at the Dubai Event here.

I am also wearing the new floral headpiece by Lode, for the Summer Garden collection, available at the current round of Shiny Shabby.

Bohemian Beauty

Mamma Mia

The new Katty pants and top from Addams SO reminds me of the bohemian style in Mamma Mia, and since I seriously just watched it the other day, I was already channeling the feels for this fun, summery vibe. I definitely cannot wait to go and see the sequel.

I am in love with the patterns for these pants, which are available in a pack for L$650. You can also purchase a separate ombre pack, or full fatpack for the almost standard L$1299. The top also comes in glitter and ombre options, or fatpack as well, for a total of 66 colors. The laces and belt can also be changed via HUD.

I was at a toss up between the headband from Miss Chelsea and this sunhat from American Bazaar and actually wore both with this outfit for a few days before I finally settled on the hat. What a statement it makes! You can also grab a few birthday gifts at the Epiphany, including a matching beach bag from American Bazaar.

Call of the Wild

Africa

I went out exploring Roy Mildor’s Devin sim, which has this amazing Serengeti scene set up. It was the perfect backdrop for the new Safari gacha from Osmia, available tomorrow at the Epiphany. If you haven’t been yet, don’t forget to teleport to the various areas. I would love to see your pictures!

I finally went out and got another Catwa head, even though I told myself I wasn’t because I feel that they are definitely over-priced for the commonness of them. But anyway, I got stuck on Magy. Even though she isn’t one of the newer releases, I still felt that I was able to keep true to my style and the features that I liked compared to some of the others. And, of course, because she looks beautiful with all of the new Glam Affair skins that were just recently released.

I talked about the new releases in my blog post here, but I wanted to give you all a look at the Catwa versions. One thing I do love, is that I can wear both the new contour (available with each skin) plus various sets of freckles or moles.

And finally, Navy&Copper had this new release out for Summerfest ’18, which we all know is my favorite yearly event. I love the short hairstyle with bun in the back, that ended up being perfect for wearing with this scarf and setting out on new adventures.
