C88: Rainforest Rainforest Rah Rah Rah!

holiday_007(Yes, it’s a shit post title, my imagination had left the building when I wrote it, OK?)

I really hadn’t anticipated loving this month’s C88 theme, ‘Rainforest’, quite as much as I have. I’ve bought a significant amount of stuff, yikes, but that’s because everything on display at this round has been so hot.

Example: here’s me looking positively ruddy sizzling in a glorious bikini from TETRA.  This is the ‘Cryssie’ Bikini, and it features a crossover front with ribbon closure to the back and the neck.  It’s one of those items that is incredibly simple, yet when done right it’s an absolute sensation.  TETRA is a great brand, I hadn’t realised how much to my taste their clothes were and they’ll certainly be a brand I consider more in the future.

There are 12 options available but I went for a nice plain and simple flesh tone with the intention of dressing it up with the TEEFY ‘Winnie’ sweater, which is precisely what I’ve done and I confess, for the entirety of the week I’ve lived in this outfit. Dirty Kitty.

Last but not least, this hairstyle is a bit of a corker innit? This is ‘King’ from LITTLE BONES, one of three long and lovely styles at C88.  I really love their long hairstyles, especially because they come with a HUD allowing you to change the positioning of the hair.  It’s an absolute winner if you ask me.

Next month’s C88 theme is going to be ‘Tan Lines’, muted earthy tones rather than an all-out fall extravaganza. I’m looking forward to it immensely, but until September 6th you’ve got the glorious ‘Rainforest’ to enjoy, and I hope you do as much as I have.

Things that make me go hmmm!

In a happy way, natch. I’ve been shopping today (when I could finally log into SL, it was quite broken earlier!) and had rather a fab time! I quickly zoomed over to check out N21 where I spied (and bought, obviously) this GLORIOUS off-the-shoulder leather jacket from SABOTAGE  It’s well detailed and textured and makes for a great foundation for an edgy, urban look.  I teamed it with some new cosmetics from PINK FUEL  which work beautifully with my ‘Skin Of the Week’, Blair, from AMARA BEAUTY @ SHINY SHABBY Back to PF, I’m a huge fan of Mochi’s work and her newly released lipstick series shows why she’s one of the most well-respected and loved the skin and makeup creators in Second Life.  They just work, you know? I had to get the matte red palette and I’m so glad I did, my lips look luscious in this fiery shade. I teamed it with some smokey eyeshadow, also from PINK FUEL. One of the pleasures of Mochi’s work is that the appliers often look like real life cosmetic palettes, and that just adds an extra element to virtually wearing them. My eyeshadow in this picture is ‘Cuff’ from the ‘Smokey Boudoir’ palette; which in my opinion is the equivalent of having an Urban Decay palette in SL.  These cosmetics aren’t cheap at L$380 per palette but hey, if you want quality you need to pay for it, right? Last but not least is another N21 find, this little ‘Heart Lock’ necklace from E.MARIE.  E.MARIE is a new-to-me brand, having only encountered them once before at an event (and buying what I saw there very quickly too!) but it’s a name I’ll not be in a hurry to forget, having visited the main store I can tell that it’s going to become one of my favourite brands due to a fabulous combination of eye and nail appliers and jewellery.  (Check out the ‘Throwback’ and ‘Best Friends’ bracelets in store!)
