I love MAGIKA. I love the bobs that Sabina Gully crafts, and I often wear her variations on that theme in world. I don’t tend to wear my hair long for some reason (Perhaps because I have long locks in real life) but in Second Life whenever a new bob hits the stores I’m there.
And I’m always happy when Sabina launches a new style upon the grid. This week she has released two; ‘Moment’, a side-swept chunky plait, and ‘Plenty’, which I am wearing in the picture above. It’s just totally adorable, and superb value. Sabina has created new hair textures, in fact, she’s been hard at work creating 90 new colours! They’re all as delicious as her previous tones and you can choose from three packs of 30 colours in either natural, unnatural or multi-coloured options. Nice and straightforward huh? Colours are selectable via a HUD, and you can resize your style easily using that interface too. All that, and packs are still a mere L$250 each. What’s not to love?
So what about the style? Well it’s a lovely shape; a bob with a flourish. A sweep of hair delicately hangs over the eye and jauntily curves up adding definition and a quirky touch. I opted to buy the multi-coloured tones and I’m mighty glad that I did. The colour develops beautifully through the hairstyle and looks really effective.
I’m delighted with it, and cannot wait to see what else Sabina has in store for us; I’m sure there are plenty of new releases headed our way! (OK, I’ll stop with the bad puns!)
Also in the post above I’m wearing a few items that I’ve picked up on my travels recently. First up is part of a necklace set called ‘Sparkly Rocker’ from MAXI GOSSAMER that I discovered at FAMESHED, which is always worth a look. Isn’t it scrumptious? I’m seriously in love with Maxi’s work at the moment. (Peruse her blog and you’ll see why, her range of jewellery is just outstanding.) ‘Sparkly Rocker’ incorporates a resize script, and comes with LOTS of options for wearing pieces both individually and as part of the set, and also the stones can be changed to different colours. I’ll happily be getting LOTS of wear out of this!
The full collection can be seen in the picture below; warning, nipple alert!
Finally my outfit was sourced at the Whore Couture Fair. I keep a notebook on my desk and I have to say I’ve found some sensational designers at the event that have really piqued my interest with their creativity. They’ve all been jotted down, and one of the entries is for KIKI DESIGNS who have created a fabulous mesh tie-front top and classic style mini-skirt.
What I love about these items are the shape, they fit perfectly, and also their simplicity meaning that they can be used to great effect in different outfits. The mesh top looks just as good with jeans or casual trousers as it does with the skirt, and the skirt can be dressed up with a formal top or something a bit more glam for a night on the Second Life tiles. I love great separates like this,and I also like the fact that the black skirt has a leopard print which makes me a very happy Kitty indeed. I’ll definitely be visiting KIKI DESIGNS again in the very near future.
