Le Geek c'est Chic!

GEEKS ‘N’ NERDS is in full swing, and to my surprise I managed to get into the sim without any problems, which to be honest, I really didn’t expect at all. Of course, it was busy, but now the majority of creators have set out their wonderful wares it’s even more enthralling than it was yesterday. Something I didn’t expect though was to fall in love with a skin at this event.  I’m loving NAR MATTARU pretty exclusively these days,  so don’t really feel the need to look further afield (with the exception of the odd BELLEZA or GLAM AFFAIR number), but by ‘eck, I spotted this LUMAE skin and I did the cardinal sin..I bought it WITHOUT TRYING A DEMO!! (What is it that I tell you guys to do all the time? DEMO ALL THE THINGS!) But, at L$100 per tone I was feeling, shall we say ‘adventurous’, and something in me just knew this would be a good investment. Turns out to be an EPIC investment; in fact I’m absolutely delighted. This skin has everything I’m looking for, beautiful tone and detail and even comes with options that I wouldn’t expect for the price. I normally wouldn’t have gone for such a slim brow either, but  I took a risk and it has actually paid off! I look bloody lovely, even if I say so myself!

This skin will be worn a LOT by me, and here’s why; the lips are scrumptious and the perfect shade of red.  It will look blinking brilliant when I wear it with my favourite make-up and eyeliner layers. At the moment I’m sporting it with my go-to eyeliner (the ever awesome Black Eyeliner Series 8 from MONS) and it looks ruddy fab doesn’t it?!


I’m also wearing the rather fabulous new necklace, ‘Timey Wimey Things’,  from CAE, which is an absolutely essential item for any self-respecting DOCTOR WHO fan. Of course, there are tonnes of Whovian-inspired goodies at this event, but this double necklace is incredibly special.  It features a little Tardis-style charm, along with one that looks rather like a sonic screwdriver, and there’s a fez and a bow-tie, because we all know that they’re the epitome of cool. There’s also a key on a separate strand, could that be a Tardis key I wonder? I’m not sure, but what I am sure of is that CAE always makes beautiful jewellery that looks totally authentic and is worth every single Linden spent. This is beautifully made, and a pleasure to wear. Incidentally, the necklaces are HUD controlled too, so you can change the colour of chains and pendants to suit your wishes. Choose from Gold, Silver and Bronze options to mix ‘n’match to your heart’s content.
Last but not least the wee jewelled choker that I’m sporting is a free gift from HASTE.  HASTE is a new brand tome, and they have some beautiful items at GEEKS’N’NERDS which I’ll share with you later this week. As freebies go though this is a wee corker. I’m really into chokers at the moment because apart from looking awesome they’re excellent for hiding neck seams from mesh bodies, and this one is perfect. It’s so delicate and intricate yet looks great, and is easy to resize too.

So what are you waiting for? Make haste! (Oho, look what I  did there!) and trot off to the GEEKS’N’NERDS fair and get ready for the most epic of nerdgasms. There’s so much to love about this event that I’ll be coming back to it all week!

Kitty’s In A Mood…..

Kitty’s In A Mood…..

I haven’t treated myself to any jewellery in ages in Second Life. This is because I’m uber fussy, and a lot of the jewllery that is available frankly doesn’t hold any appeal. I prefer simple structured shapes to outlandish cut-throat fashionism 99% of the time, and then very infrequently I’ll want something so totally mad bonkers that I’ll only ever wear it once. So, me being a lazy chuff, I don’t tend to bother UNLESS it’s something uber-amazing from somewhere like Deco, or Miel, or Mood.

And it’s Mood that I’m writing about now because Jori Watler has just released a rather fabulous necklace and earring set that is so versatile that I can see it becoming a quintessential part of my SL wardrobe. It’s called ‘Chaos’, but there’s nothing haphazard or chaotic about the construction-it’s a perfect arrangement of loops and links. Think belcher without any belch, elegantly aligned and formed into a perfect ensemble to wear every day. It’s just as adaptable to special occasions too; the earrings in particular with their clustered-drop effect look sensational. The necklace looks great with backless gowns too; the fastening at the back is a cluster of loops that sounds as though it could look messy, but it just works. Totally unpretentious, classy styling that will last a virtual lifetime.

Of course, it comes with sizing options to ensure a perfect fit, and there are also texture change options too, making this even more attractive as investment pieces go. You can choose to wear Antiqued, Bronze, Gold, Gun Metal, Military and Platinum stylings. I was a bit worried when I selected the antiqued choice, as I half expected Bam Margera to come at me with a bag of flour but I needn’t have worried; the finishing and textures are all spot on, EXCEPT I’m a bit disappointed with the Military option. To me, that would be a dark green; in this set it seemed very light, almost lime and I wasn’t keen. Still ny not liking one option out of the six doesn’t make this any less of a worthy buy. I didn’t spot the option to demo this set, which I would have appreciated, because L$475 is a LOT to shell out but needless to say it’s entirely worth every penny. I won’t be taking it off anytime soon, and because it’s not nickel I’m pretty damn sure my neck won’t turn a funny colour either:)

Check out the blog and visit the store to get your mitts on this very special set. (I was trying to be so good with my spends today..I now have three lindens to last me a week. Woe is me, Fabfree for me it is then!)
