Fantasy Friday: Tricks and treats at The Fantasy Collective

Let me be your fantasyIf you have a group slot free it is well worth your time to join THE FANTASY COLLECTIVE and swoop on down to see what wonderfulness  awaits you at this month’s round.  Not only will you discover some suitably scary items, you’ll also be able to indulge on some rather cracking freebies.  Each designer in attendance has placed a stonking great big pumpkin alongside their stand, and it’s filled with either a trick, or a treat.
The treats are exactly that readers too; I’m wearing some of them in this snap.  I look ruddy scrumptious don’t I? Well, first of all you’ll see some blood-smeared on my kitty-lips, that’s courtesy of some epic lip tattoos which are a freebie from IZZIES.  The blood trickling down my throat is a gift necklace called ‘Bleed’ from the always amazing CAE, and the hair is an absolutely brilliant freebie from DAMSELFLY.  Isn’t it just to die for? This style is absolutely gorgeous; I love the fact that it features some pretty plaits to one side (perfect to show off your elven ears) and a full-bodied crown and side-swept fringe to finish.  As freebies go this one is pretty monumental and you would be foolish to miss the event, and this gift too. I paired all my freebie finds with this beautiful ERRATIC ‘Mia’ dress from THE MESH BODY ADDICTS event.  It’s available in a myriad of pattern and plain combinations, but this image just called for me to wear the black version.  I get the feeling that this dress would be incredibly lightweight in real life, very silky and slinky too, but it wears beautifully on my MAITREYA body. Of course because it’s an ERRATIC dress you just know that it’s going to have the perfect amount of detail, even though it’s a relatively simple piece.  The creasing and the slight drape and gape to the fabric feels just right and of course it looks beautiful.  I adore it.
Lots for you to enjoy here readers, so here’s your shopping list!

Wicked Wednesdays: Calling all Shiny Shabby Mesh Body Addicts!

You know what I hate? Going out of my comfort zone. I’m a Kitty of singular yet simple tastes; I like to do things at my own pace without interference or annoyance. So, the idea of going away in RL (even if it’s just for one night) kinda fills me with dread. Especially when I’m going to be hundreds of miles from my own bed..URGH. I don’t sleep well in hotels, and although I’m lucky that I don’t have to travel in real life much with my job the fact is that as you’re reading this I’m going to be a long way from home, and I won’t be enjoying it that much.  So I don’t miss out on my blogging commitments though, I’ve set this post to pop up and entertain you while I’m sat with my colleagues in a room far, far away and counting down the minutes until I can start the long journey back home…

SO let’s forget about all that and concentrate on the spiffing emsemble that I’m leaving behind! This is the ‘Erika’ lingerie from JUST BECAUSE for MESH BODY ADDICTS, and it is simply glorious.  There is NOTHING that I do not like about this lingerie item.  I’m wearing my Maitreya body so of course I’m sporting the Maitreya fit, and it’s as perfect as you would expect. ‘Erika’ has lots to offer; for a start there’s great ribbon detail and contrast piping, and she looks really  authentic, with creasing and shading details across the body that contributes to the realistic feel. The cups are nice; they’re built like a full cup, yet part of them is exposed which makes for an eye-catching detail, but it doesn’t feel cheap or nasty, if you get my drift. This is underwear with class;  a ribbon sits delicately between the breasts and at the back there is clasp detailing on the straps at back that serves absolutely no purpose yet makes this utem look as though.  It’s available in an absolute cacophony of colours, but I’m especially partial to this muted plum colour.

To complement my look and take it up another level I’m wearing a pair of cracking boots from ILLI.  They’re called ‘Doutzen’ and they’re a chunky soled number, with a thin high-heel at the back. The boots have great texture to them; zooming in was fun to spot stitching and leather effects that are extremely well applied, as is the zip to the rear.  These look VERY good indeed close-up, something that always pleases me in Second Life. Of course the big selling point to these boots is the cut-out pattern; I’ll be honest in that I tend to prefer solid footwear but you know what? I really like these. They’ve been worked at, and you can tell; these haven’t been cobbled together quickly and sloppily, they fit well and I think they look really interesting too.  These ‘Doutzen’ boots, like the ‘Erika’ lingerie are available at MESH BODY ADDICTS which opens on the 20th and you really cannot miss this event if you like your mesh appendages to look their very best! (I’m only away for one night so will be back to feature LOTS more on this amazing event, and I can’t wait to share my finds with you!)

To finish is a hairstyle that I discovered at the Blogger preview of this month’s SHINY SHABBY event.  It’s going to be another corker of course, and I know you’ll enjoy it, but when I visited quite a few vendors had yet to set up.  Fortunately PEPE HAIR were already there and I’m so glad that they were because I fell in love with this ‘Bridget’ style immediately.  It’s a simple double ponytail: nothing too fancy at all but it’s one of those styles that just works, you know? I think it’s going to prove a very versatile addition to my virtual hairstyle collection too, and I’ll get a lot of wear out of this because there are six different ‘Dark Brunette’ shades in the pack.

Last but not least, still wearing and loving ‘Becca’ from ZOUL CREATIONS. This time I’ve plumped for the Smoky Brown eyeshadow and nude lip.  I’ve kept jewellery to a minimum as well, just this dinky wee septum piercing from the ever-amazing MONS to finish off my look that I hope you enjoy as much as I do! (And I do, believe me.  As I write this blogpost I’m dancing around in my skybox with nothing but a bunch of virtual kittens for company-this is the life eh?)

Maleficent Monday – Something Witchy This Way Comes!

Witch room_001

Another day, another Witchy look! In this shot I’m trembling with fear and spellcasting in a gloomy cottage with my familiar companions.  All I have to protect me are my fabulous fashion choices (Ha! See what I did there?), but fortunately I look so awesome that I’m well protected! I’m sporting an absolutely essential suede effect halter-neck fress from CYNFUL http://cynfulclothing.com/which will be an exclusive at the MESH BODY ADDICTS event. It’s absolutely perfect, brilliant for dressing up as elegant evening wear or dressing down with boots and a jacket.  CYNFUL is a very long-established brand in-world that doesn’t disappoint and I’ll be featuring this ensemble again in a different colour way later this week, if you need anymore conviciong that you need this beautiful frock in your collectioon! I’m also sporting the beautiful blonde DOE ‘Grand High Witch’ that I won during my TAG! GACHA excursions; I love the long style and the fact that it includes a hat is also a bonus:) Heels

My shoes are also a bit special too, these nice chunky heels will also be available at the MESH BODY ADDICTS event, and I particularly like the texture and the bar embellishment on the heels too.  Cracking pair of shoes, Kitty likes!
