Essence of PurpleMoon

Decided I would try my luck again this month in "The Essence of PurpleMoon" Flikr competition. Submitted entries last round, but wasn't selected, and was undecided about trying again. A few friends kept encouraging me to keep trying, and not being the give-up sort I put together a couple of photos.
First is the full shot.
This took me a while to do. The whole image is fully manipulated by me from a pose against a white background.

Next up is the head shot, again taken on a white background, with a backdrop added later.

Dark Glamour at Euphoria

Time for another Limited Bazaar. And this time the theme is Dark Glamour. Not everyone was out at the time of writing, but the ones that were out are worth getting.
I totally fell for this thigh length black coat from Gizza. It has a great line both front and back, and moves really well. Added bonus was it comes with a pair of seamed black stockings. How glam is that!
Dark Glamour
 I coupled it with one of the two earring and necklace sets Maxi Gossamer has on offer this time around. Add one of the newest hairs from Truth, the gorgeous skin Glam Affair had a the last Dressing Room, and it made for a truly glamorous look.

A belated post from Limited Bazaar at Euphoria. Had these photos done a while ago, but so many other things kept popping up that I never got a chance to blog them.
The theme at the last Limited Bazaar was 60's. And one of the Designers that caught my eye was Fleshtone. I bought both their offerings, and when I had an issue with the anchor prim showing through my hand, the creator Stevenzuuh GossipGirl wasboth friendly, helpful, and really quick to send me a new copy of both outfits so I could fix them.
The outfit I chose to blog was the top, because...well I love it!
Spots'n'Stripes - the Top
 I am a complete sucker for striped tops both in RL and in SL. Specially if they are black/white, or grey/white. And this one really is a cutie. With it's cropped front, scooped neck, and shaped, longer back, it really has my name written all over it.

 I threw a spotted skirt into the mix, which is another RL/SL favourite of mine. And this little skirt from Teefy fitted the bill perfectly. Lastly was the calf-length Sandra white boots that came with the AvaGirl outfit I blogged previously, some big, jaunty earrings like the 60's Gogo Disks from Maxi Gossamer, and the look was complete.

When the chance came up the other day to blog an Indyra outfit, I jumped on it. I've loved Indyra for a loooong time.

Vicereine is a stunning outfit with so many options it is mind-boggling when you first unpack it. There is 3 dress options, 3 pantsuit options, and 3 sets of underwear.
There is a version with a collar, and sheer insert and sheer back section for both dress and pantsuit.

Sixties Styling

One of my favourite events is Limited Bazaar at Euphoria. This round was no exception. The theme this round was "The 60's" With so many great offerings the choice wasn't easy, and I could have bought almost everything there if my purse stretched that far. Sadly it doesn't so these were my choices.

I love the bright almost electric colours in this mini dress. The shape with the scoop neck, bell sleeves and loose A-type flow to the skirt is perfect. Paired with the white zip-up calf-length boots that are included, SO sixties in feel.

In Purple

I've always had a love of bright, bold colours and patterns, and I love the colour purple. So this little summer top/dress/camisk from R2 Fashions was a no-brainer for me to buy when I saw it.
I love the way the fabric flows and hugs the body, creating a sensual smooth look. The deeply scooped back is perfectly enhanced with a thin T-section of fabric down the centre, and a big, purple floppy bow.
The skin is one of my current faves from Aeva/Heartsick that was available at Vintage Fair. Add long hair by Truth, some purple bangles, necklace, and my favourite go-to nails by Izzie's and the look is complete.

What I am wearing:-
Top/Dress - R2 Fashions "r2 A/D/E j-color-tunktop-mini-one-piece"  Collabor88
Skin - Aeva "A // Jaci ~ 3 // Belle Amie // Cleavage"  was at Vintage Fair
Hair - Truth "Andrea w/Roots - java"
Bangles - Izzie's "*B* Wood Bangles purple"
Necklace/Earrings - Maxi Gossamer "Madrah"
Nails - Izzie's "Classic Nails"

Rotten Toe

Been a while since I have posted, and have a backlog of posts to make. Got caught up with having to move to a new sim and re-set up my home and photo space due to having been hit BAD by this bug: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SVC-8124.
I'm usually the last to find out about great places, so when I stumbled upon Rotten Toe while adventuring around the grid, I did a little squee. This place is full of great group gifts, and has some really excellent and different skins, hair and clothes available.
Some examples of the group gifts to be had are shown here. I think my favourite was this dress. It is a nice mix of grunge and delicate femininity that often seems to be missing in grunge and goth clothing. Closely followed by this hair. It is pink, gothic lolita-ish and did I say pink......what isn't to like about that.
Rotten Toe dress
There were three skins as group gifts available when I went, each quite different than the others as far as make-ups went. One of the skins is a doll skin which also had hearts on the nipple area.
Another of the excellent gifts was this torn and beaten up corset. The colourful and fun bracelets worn here are also a group gift.

What I am wearing:-
Dress - Rotten Toe "Antique Doll Dress"  (group gift)
Skins -  Rotten Toe "!RT...Doll Skin"  (group gift)
                                    "!RT...Jane-Pale...dk...Oh,me!" 2 shades included  (group gift)
                                    "!RT...Valentine's skin" 2 versions included  (group gift)
Corset - Rotten Toe "Long Rotten Corset"  (group gift)
Hair - Rotten Toe "Vika - pink"  (group gift)
