Spring Blossoms

A very belated post of a gorgeous dress from World's End Garden that was featured at FFL. This long spring gown/dress is so feminine and pretty with the smothering of blossoms and flowers over it. I felt it had quite an Asian look and feel about it so styled it that way. But in truth it is versatile enough to be styled many ways.

I chose an older Glam Affair skin called Sakura as the skin base, because it has an Asian look and feel about it. And complemented the eyes with under eye shadow by Chelle, and a rich jewel coloured eyeshadow from Madrid Solo. The hair was a gift from EMO-tions at Hair Fair 2 years back.

Completing the look I chose a stunning necklace from Finesmith that really works well with this gown. The necklace sits in such a way as to look like it clips onto the dress and so is part of the whole. Bracelets are from Mandala for the brown one, and Pure Poison for the rose bracelet.

Blue Venus

While visiting FFL  during some time off, I was just browsing around looking and making a mental list of things I wanted before actually buying. Anyway, wandered into this new to me booth for ~ghee~. Noticed a long blue gown named Elemental Gown...couldn't see it all that well in the lag, but was curious. So right clicked to check how much it was, next thing I knew I had bought it because of the lag. Feeling a little peeved at having spent quite a sum on an unplanned (and possibly unwanted purchase) I cut my losses and went home to try it on.
Well....was I in for a surprise!
This gown is just amazing! I literally did not take it off for almost 2 days, I love it that much. It is called Elemental Gown - Water......and it really looks like it has water running through it. It is nearly totally transparent to give the water look, though does come with modesty bra and panties.
Co-inciding with me accidentally getting this gown, was the opening of {MUA} make-up shop by Shanty Bookmite. One of their release make-ups was the lovely set "Overseas". Wearing just the eyes here, the colour compliments perfectly the Elemental Gown. I teamed it up with the Finesmith "Pulinha MVW" set in white

Black Gold

Seems that time just gets on top of me lately. This time I have been very busy with the Metaverse Pageant. After being unsuccessful in applying as a Candidate, I was asked if I would be a Liaison with a group of candidates that did make it in. I jumped at the chance, figuring it would be great behind-the-scenes experience. I had NO clue just how busy that job would be. During the judging I ended up as a judge, and that was literally a full-time job with us putting in 14 hour days. It was fun, it was exhausting, and for me it was educational. And I would not swap the experience for the world.
The second thing that has kept me busy is getting ready to do my first show as a Model. On Sunday March 26, 1pm I will be in my first show through Model's Workshop. Rehearsals, and styling has kept me pretty hectic the last few days since the finals of the Metaverse Pageant.
Of course I missed a lot of blogging I should have done, and some I wished I had over the next few days I hope to catch up on some of it.

This outfit is a mix of items from Fashion Limited, and Arcade Gacha. I chose the stunning Liv-Glam  "Anastasiya Peacock Gown" because the flow and the fine sequining of the fabric is just gorgeous. With a low cut V at the front to accentuate the fine curves of the skin under the gown.
To accessorise I chose the fabulous Pulinha MVW Formal set in black/gold from Finesmith. This is such a delicate and feminine set that sits perfectly on the body. I matched that with a recent EMO-tions hair fresh from FFL called Semiramis.
The amazing skin I am wearing is the lovely Gwen skin by Swallow from the Arcade gacha. There is 10 skins in all to be had, and every one of them is well worth it.

Gown - [LIV-Glam]WINTER-2012- ANASTASIYA Peacock Gown (available at Fashion Limited)
Jewellery - FINESMITH- Pulinha MVW formal Bracelet/necklace/earrings  (available at Fashion Limited)
Skin - Swallow Arcade Gwen 09  (available at Arcade gacha)

Busy, Busy. Spring Fever

Ever notice how time has a way of zooming by? I've been busy as heck in SecondLife, and next thing I knew 2 weeks had flown past. I did find time to get in some of the current events though.
Lucia from World's End Garden sent me this pretty dress that is their hunt prize in the Alice in RMK GOTHIC Hunt.
Soft and demure, in soft Spring colors, this dress is well worth the time doing the Hunt.

Like 90% of the grid I went gacha-crazy at the beginning of the month when the Arcade Gacha opened. So many great things to take your chance with RNG being on your side. I didn't do too badly, and having a gacha yardsale to sell extras at was very useful. This great skin from Swallow was one of my favourites from this round. As are these boots from ISON.

Teamed this all up with the latest group gift eyes from IKON. Love this new range of eyes they have. Added bracelets from Limited Bazaar, and Earrings from TDR Fusion, and we were ready to enjoy the spring air in a garden somewhere.
