Halloween Season Freestyle



Halloween is soon to be a memory, but there are still plenty of great gifts to be found -- many that are everyday wear.  Sami hit the road the other evening and these are her picks.

From Chop Suey the Ophilia Set in Silver; collar, bracelets and earrings free for all in the center atrium of the store.

A really lovely capri and top set (two styles) is the new SLO&F gift from Rowena's Designs.

And you can pick up a very pretty hair with a big selection of shades by hud on the Marketplace at the Fabia store .  This WILL work for pretty busty gals.



This super nice bloody tank complete with an authentic rip or two is the new group gift from COCO. Find it on the wall not far from the entrance with all the past gifts.

From *.:Dark Cat:.*Hair a very pretty sidesweep style,   Chiara (one color only) on the Marketplace.



From Entice as a store group gift, Alone again in orange ...



And Candy Store Lingerie (a really great fit).


-Sentinus Hair- Fitted Mesh Cool Hair gift for SLO&F members.

All Hallows' Eve


All Hallows' Eve

It is the night when the veil between worlds is thinnest -- a gossamer wing boundary between  past and present, living and dead.


Here with a preview of Gacha Garden goodness (begins Nov 1), may I present:

lassitude & ennui  Dragon whelps, animated flying attachments (the appearance of arm perching is a happy accident courtesy of my pose). There are plenty of colors to try for and the Seed of Inspiration prize is a set of avatar attachment wings.  The whelps can also be rezzed.

From MEVA, a big set of wearables for gals including dresses in various combos (black - white - silver - gold) for Slink and Maitreya.  Along with that come some pretty spectacular jewelry options including my favorites, Meva Aesur Earrings in Silver.  

A perfect hair pairing is EMO-tions MEI.

Note that my outfit including pet (no shoes) is 43990 complexity so pretty safe for partying in busy gathering places.


And here is another pretty spectacular photo taken at the same time.  Look, I'm a star! *wink*.  This hasn't happened in years, so fun.

A Lady of Promise

A Lady of Promise

I am going to be honest with you; I originally paired this Scarlett Top from Stories&Co. by Flowey with my super comfy MYNX yoga pants. A good look; classic and comfy.

The top, previously of the Luxe Box is now available at the main store.


• 10 colors available
• SLink Physique, Hourglass, Maitreya Lara included
• Materials ready




Then while looking for some jewelry, I remembered the Baubles! by Phe Rose Gold Choker and earrings currently out at Lost and Found (hurry hurry) and did a quick change. That worked too! So very ladylike.


With some extremely romantic hair from Boon (booN Lab.021 hair) I was set to go exploring.

Fog's End, a Victorian and Steampunk role play sim has just had a makeover.  Since I love the era and miss many sims of that genre that are no longer with us, I was excited about exploring.

It is an impressive build for sure. Some superb architecture adds to the feel of a real city of long ago. Maybe not one in our historical past; perhaps one simply a few steps away from our reality. I am pretty sure I spied one of the full sim builds from last year's Fantasy Faire (or perhaps a close relative).

A lovely place to get lost in the past.

Shadows By Moonlight

Talkin Bout Those Bad Girls


Shadows by moonlight --




Now this is not my normal attire; I am a jeans and boots kinda gal. BUT, the {ViSion} -S&F *Bodysuit Felisity is so beautifully made that I simply could not, not let you know!   It simply hugs EVERY curve.  Belleza, Slink and Maitreya are supported. Eighteen tints tones and shades to choose from with four bonus colors in the fatpack. Body, strings and metals can all be changed.

Where? Cosmopolitan.

From eXxEsS, MERMELADA  hair which seems to have a sultry feel -- or is that just my imagination.  Two extensive color huds of course as well as a "breeze" version.

Talkin Bout Those Bad Girls 2

There are some great new boots out from Ducknipple. Ducknipple Boots vs2 offer plenty of details and a great fit for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya.

Uber - Hup Hup

Uber Hup Hup

It's military time over at Uber. Whether you are an outdoorsy civil servant type or a more traditional defender of freedom, there are plenty of impressive items to peruse.

A large collection from Cheeky Pea (including a bunker and vintage posters not shown here) can merge easily into a rustic setting.  One of my favorite pieces of this set is the rolled curtain topper and rod. It adjusts easily and should fit many windows.

The Dyani Park Ranger Chair from Trompe Loeil offers texture change leather.

And don't miss these great boots from Baiastice.  The Platoon boots comes in a vast selection of mesh body sizes as well as standard sizing. Mid high with sturdy soles and heels, they are both practical and fashionable.

Role play anyone?

It is 1942  -- or 44  --  or whatever  ----

Or it might be some decades beyond.

Either way you can find appropriate military attire at the BAIASITCE booth at Uber.  Lots of colors to choose from as well as camo versions of the Colonel Jacket and Skirt.

Horizon Dreams

Horizon Dreams

Probably a year since I ventured over to Horizon Dream; it was as magical as always but much changed.  Fine details, rich textures -- the environment was a fitting match to my attire of the evening.

For you art buffs this is called "condensed space" where the things in the logical background appear to be on  very much the same level as the foreground. Amazingly I actually experienced this in real life at the Grand Canyon on -- luckily -- one of the 3% days it is crystal clear. It DOES happen!   


From Asteria the "Loren" [Maitreya/Belleza/Slink] Mini Dress in Pink and vest in Sugar. Definitely notice me attire, the mini sheath and couture style vest come in a myriad of lovely colors -- eleven for each, and is complimented with the multi stringed necklace.


From no.match, NO WORD hair -- especially for gals that like the full bodied look. It flows beautifully with gathered tresses for that walking away view.

Find all this newness at COSMOPOLITAN


While G&D  has some super stylish high heeled bootlets at Cosmopolitan, these Lux sandals are more in keeping with the ladylike accouterments of this styling. You can find THESE at Lost and Found. Color huds let you pick from a variety of solid colors changing leather, metal, and sole textures.

All these poses are from Di's Opera -- currently at Cosmopolitan.

Boa



Only a few VERY old folks will remember my fifteen seconds or so of boa fame; (not completely safe for work but pretty much so photo - March 17, 2008.) There was a story. There was fun. I still smile remembering those days.

So -- for me -- there is no doubt that the star of THIS show is --- ta da!  The boa! (Also known as a stole.)

Jacket, skirt and bra top are of course of note, but without the boa? Now where is the dra-ma?

And what better way to frolic than attired in the new Philora set from MEVA.

A convincingly unbuckled belt and mixed tan and charcoal leather colors adds to the jacket's appeal.  Find it at Shiny Shabby (opens today).  There are many choices for skirt and tank textures.

Bootiful Browns


The rich colors of Autumn - rusts and browns, dark taupes and siennas all to be found at Tres Chic.

From Sintiklia  - Hair Kim, a two part ponytail with plenty of options including a resize version for us mesh head gals. The notable difference between this and other ponytails is the hairline and "real hair" look of the cap section of the hair duo. The ponytail comes in this full version as well as a super sleek, thin style. Dark colors shine here, so if you are an earthy brunette or auburn gal, be sure and try a demo.

I am wearing a hair base applier from EMO-tions under the mesh hair.



Bootie call gets a new meaning with the very detailed and lovingly textured  Obscura shorts from E-Clipse Design. Laces and pouches,  zippers and pockets -- if you love showing off your curves, these are for you. Many colors available; Slink, Belleza and Maitreya.



The [Z O O M] Cinara's Bag comes with a big color hud that let's you change both leather and metal colors. The hold works with poses for photography. Here I used Helamiyo's priority 3 (that's a guess) creations.

Tank by Blueberry (older group gift).

Deceptively Simple

Deceptively Simple

Long ago and far away I had a pose from Long Awkward Pose called "deceptively simple". It seems gone from my inventory now -- whether from purposeful cleaning or database snafu (there was one of those just recently) I know not.  But the IDEA is still very valid.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most difficult to reproduce in our virtual land.


This is the Ec.cloth - Cutout Suede Mini-Dress available at Tres Chic on the 17th. It has a lovely soft suede texture and comes in many colors. Various mesh body fits are available as well as "original" which I am guessing is fitmesh for legacy avatars.

What is particularly notable about this dress is that it REALLY FITS. There are tons of off the shoulder garments these days; I seem to be trying them on a few times a week at least. Most look nice in poses but don't move well at all.

I have a fairly active AO  -- one where I brush through my hair, turn and twist and whatnot. It is a great test of rigging and weighting. Not my plan originally but hey, a bonus.


This dress works and will be added to my skimpy wardrobe (such a neat gal). No giant breasts or oversized buttocks.  Hallelujah!

My backdrop is the Wine Cellar set from ChiC buildings also available at Tres Chic. The set (or individual pieces) comes in walnut, oak, white and driftwood (rustic). There is a collection of five pose balls that can be added for holiday photos in a classy setting. The wine table gives wine glasses with animations to your guests.


These classic pumps from Mowie, the "Sophia" Sandals, come in a large variety of colors and are a great pairing for the classic dress. Yes, they too can be found at Tres Chic.

New eXxEsS CARAMEL hair is both casual and feminine and comes with a hud for color change on the delicate clip.

Baiastice Bea Doll Head - Group Gift

If you love breaking away from your normalness, the new Bea Doll Head from Baiastice is just for you. Choose skin tone, eyes, eyelashes and collar from an easy to use hud.  Be as spooky or as cute as you like.

Now Bea has a head on her shoulders, so rigged mesh won't be her style. This gives you a great opportunity to dig around in your old favorites (mod will be necessary almost certainly) to find a fitting "do".  A little stretching and readjustment and she will be all set.   My antique style is about six years old, from Maitreya as part of fantastic blogger gift (back when there were very few bloggers) :D. Still looks good. 


Best of all, Bea is a group gift!
