She's so unusual

There has been some very interesting new releases at events lately. Things that are a step away from the norm, which really IS just my style.
For example we have this very cool and spectacular dress from Zibska at "The Instruments" that features goats...yes you read correctly. Goats. Now as a Capricorn, I have an affinity for goats, so this is pure love :)

Speaking of unusual, look at these absolutely amazing shoes from Azoury! Aren't they just fabulous. Made exclusively to work with the "Eve" pointy feet. Yes another mesh body. Now while Eve has a couple of small flaws (as do all the mesh bodies), it really is very lovely. A very big bonus with it is that it comes standard in two body types: slender, and curvy, so it will work no matter which body type is your preference. It also works with Omega appliers, and SLINK feet.

As a counter balance to the very eyecatching "Davina" headpiece that is part of the Zibska outfit, I chose to add this very lovely "earmuff" from Azoury available at ON9 (which used to be called L'accessoires). With a definite asian influence these earmuffs are versatile enough to wear with many different fashion styles.
I chose this necklace from Mandala that is available at Uber as it echoes many of the design motifs from the rest of my ensemble with it's sweeping lines, fans, and circles. The last piece I want to mention is the eyeshadow, from some-one that is new to me...SlackGirl. Available at "The Make-over Room" it really is an eye-catching design. All her make-ups are well worth taking the time out to look at.

Almost Ethereal

Fashion For Life finishes today, but I really wanted to get this simply fantastic piece from Zibska out there. It is Zib's exclusive for the event, and if you don't get it today you will miss out entirely. The jewellery pieces alone make it a must have in my mind.

Almost EtherealAlmost Ethereal

Wearing it with one of La Petite Morte's fantasy line of skins. These are lovely and well worth a look if you never have before. The bright pink of the Maev eye-shadow by Zibska available at the Skin Fair(which also ends today) contrasts strongly against the monochromatic grey skin. The nails are another shade in the very excellent Smelted Fades nails set by Plastik, also at the Skin Fair.

Spring Days

For the Northern Hemisphere it is early Spring, and the fashions of the season are just starting to emerge onto the grid. This eyecatching little number from Ghee speaks loudly of Spring with the contrasting white floral pattern sweeping across the bodice and down to the hip. It is another of the exclusives for Fashion For Life, and you had better hurry if you want to get it as it closes March 29th.
Spring Days
Another one you had better hurry for is this gorgeous pale skin called "Rose" from Mudskin. There is 10 shades of skin in both freckle and non-freckle versions, though all tend to be pale. The skin comes with eye-shadows (not shown), moles, and lipsticks, and there are appliers available for almost any mesh body/part. But as the Skin Fair closes on the 29th, you had better rush over. The eye-shadow shown is one by Zibska called Maia, also available at the Skin Fair.
The bracelets are both by Plastik. On my right forearm is a bracelet that is a new favourite called Bonedaddy, a quirky fun bracelet made of bones, set with gems. And on my left is Detora, also made of bone, and set with tiny chains, and a crystal. Both are available at The Secret Affair.
Spring Days
Finishing my look is this chain and gem necklace from Zibska. Both chains, and gems are colour changeable through the HUD. The hair is an older Tableau Vivant one that is perfect for Spring with it's built on hat.

At Home in my Boudoir

Got a date where you want to look smart, flirty, fresh but not too formal? Well look no further than this fabulously sexy, semi-sheer number from Ghee that is exclusive to Fashion For Life available only until March 29th. Versatile enough to wear in both Spring and Summer, you'll be turning heads everywhere in this wherever you go.
in my boudoir..
The white of the Ghee number looks absolutely stunning on this beautiful Della skin from Zoul Creations. Available at the Skin Fair, again only until March 29th, it is one not to missed. This skin comes in 10 skintones available, has all the major applier types, and there is also separate packs of lips, and eye-shadow that can be purchased.
Also at the Skin Fair and for only just 1L......yep you heard right, 1L for this pack of gorgeous SLINK nails from Plastik. But you'd better rush before March 29th to grab them.
in my boudoir..
The sandals I am wearing here are from Zibska, and are also perfectly suited to dressing up, or dressing boho, or even at the beach. As with most of her offerings they come with a colour change HUD with a great choice in colours.
My hair is by booN, and I'm not usually a fan of dread styles, but OMG I love this!  I think this would have to be the best dread style hair I have seen in SL to date (at least in my opinion).

The Fool

I have to admit this post has taken me almost 5 days to put together. I had such a clear vision of what look I wanted. But finding the pieces to make that look come about turned out to be an exercise in mostly frustration with not being able to find half the pieces I wanted. The same went with the photos. So all in all everything turned out quite different than what I had envisioned.

So, first up is the dress, eye make-up, and hat (used here as a prop) that are Zibska's offering for the "Create Your Own Tarot" event, which this month features the fool. Just love this dress, it's fun, and flirty. And will be easily matched in with many other items in your wardrobe for a lot of different looks. From the same event is the pose used here by Roquais. This is one of the prizes in the gacha that features 9 different poses, a "tarot" card, and the style card for that look.
The Fool
The skin is another in the fabulous fantasy skinline Immortalia line at the Skin Fair by Plastik called Thana.  A very pale offering that is excellent for the vampire in you. As with the others, it comes with make-ups, eyes, and many brow options. There is also appliers for just about anything available as well (seperate)
The lipstick is also from the Skin Fair and is by Zoul Creations for their skin range "Gina"
These fabulously embroidered and detailed bracelets are by [sYs] and are available from SOU by Creation.jp.

Red Light Seductress

Took the title from the prop used, a fabulous new prop with poses by Exposeur available at Whore Couture Fair.

The skin is one of the skins on offer at The Skin Fair from Zoul Creations, called Della. And it is truly stunning! There is 10 skintones available. It comes with all the major applier types, and there is also separate packs of lips, and eyeshadow that can be purchased.
Red Light Seductress
To set the mood, I chose the extremely provocative Brigitte set from Zibska, available at The Instruments. This set has a bra, undies, and dress. And like almost all of Zibska's offerings it has a colour-change HUD with 9 fabulous colours.
As there was really not much need for a lot of jewellery, I added just a fairly "simple" bracelet of gold bones, set with gold gems from Plastik, available at The Secret Affair. The bracelet comes in four styles in each pack. It is available in 3 metal shades. The nails take advantage of the new SLINK nail ability to set each nail a different polish with these two complimentary pattern sets from Nail Me!

Standing here waiting for you.....

Anyone that knows me in SL, knows I am a skin addict. I have more skins than I could ever wear even if I changed skin twice a day for 3 years. And that doesn't include my old skins.... So I am absolutely thrilled to be blogging Plastik skins from the Skin Fair!

Just a note if you intend to visit the Skin Fair, there is a VERY strict 50 script limit in place to try to limit lag and give everyone a fair shopping experience.

Plastik is one of those shops that while I don't shop there every day, or even every week, I have quite a collection over the years. If you have never been there, then you really should do yourself a shopping favour and pay a visit.
The skin/s (male and female on offer at the Fair) are fabulous. Called "Immortalia" they are perfect for many fantasy settings. In the pack you get a collection of eyes, make-ups, freckles, and a whole lot of brow options. They come in 20 shades, and there is appliers for almost any mesh body part add-on you can think of (bought separately).
Standing here waiting for you.Standing here waiting for you

This very sexy Adrianna lingerie seen here is new from Zibska, comes in 6 colours, and is for mesh bodies Maitreya, Bella, and TMP, as well as the standard SL body, and is available at her shop. The horns shown are available at We <3 Role-Play and come in 30 different shades with a HUD to colour change the cord. These awesome nails are from Flair, have several colours in the HUD and are for Maitreya hands/feet.
