Saturday Sorcery: The Well Dressed Witch

Well dressed witchAnother day, another Witchy look inspired by this fabulous ERRATIC ‘Mia’ dress from the MBA BI-MONTHLY EVENT. It’s the red version I’m sporting this time, along with a fabulous REMARKABLE OBLIVION hat, won from one of the Gacha machines in their store. You know, these hats really do take some beating. They’re probably the most detailed witch/sorcerer style bonnets on the grid when it comes to design and colour, and because they’re so well made they really do make a nice alternative to the regular black pointy number that is currently being sported here, there and everywhere. Dare to be different folks! I’m still wearing the ILLI ‘Doutzen’ boots; they’re just a sensation and this time I’m sporting a nice brown texture to coordinate beautifully with my frock.
My hairstyle is from LITTLE BONES at N21.  What can I say about LITTLE BONES hair that I haven’t already said in many a blog post on these pages?  Not much to be fair.
The styles are always sensational and I’ve completely converted to their long-hair ways. One thing I particularly like about this style is the way that the back has been rendered, there is just as much attention paid to the tendrils and locks that fall against you as there is attention paid to the front. I’ve got some snaps that will show you what I mean coming up in a few posts time, so watch this space. Naturally I’m still sporting my current fave skin, ‘Becca’ from ZOUL CREATIONS because why would I take something so awesome off? I’ve rummaged in my inventory too to find an an old favourite necklace of mine, ‘Eerie’ by CAE that I blogged about extensively HERE, all the way back in 2013! It hasn’t dated at all and for me will be getting a lot of wear during Halloween due to the myriad of charms in the HUD. It’s still available so be sure to indulge! Oh, and last but not least, check out my eyeballs! I forgot that I had these IKON ‘Hope’ eyes in Crimson until yesterday but what a fabulous find for me at this time of year.  They manage to be completely devilish yet elegant at the same time; I’ll be having LOTS of fun with these, that’s for sure!

Terrible Tuesday: A Kittywitch A Day

honeybear_001Sometimes writing a blogpost is a doddle, other times it can be really hard. Occasionally I’ll put an outfit together that in my head works beautifully, but on the page..urgh. In truth it’s often the case that the really simple looks turn out to be the best, and that is definitely the case here. I love the way this look turned out: Yes, it’s another one featuring a Witchy theme but hey, it is the season after all!

My look takes its cue from the cracking jersey I’m sporting from MUKA at THE SEASONS STORY (an absolute must visit guys, I kid you not!)  and is further enhanced by this absolutely banging hat that I won in a Gacha machine at REMARKABLE OBLIVION. It’s well worth your time dropping by the store and throwing some Lindens at the machine to end up with a bonnet that looks radically different to your usual pointy black hat. Last but not least I decided to add a co-ordinating lipstick layer from ADORED, one of my absolute favourite cosmetic brands in-world.  You’ll find some cracking eye make-ups and lipstick layers there for other brands of mesh-mush, not just the PXL SWEET LIPS that I myself covet..which if you replace the ‘t’ with an ‘n’ turns into a VERY Witchy word indeed! HUZZAH!

Even More Astonishing Arcade Happy!

The more photos that are added to The Arcade Flickr Group, the more I realise that the majority of my September will  be spent bouncing off sim walls wearing a low-lag avatar.  Dear me, are we in for an absolute TREAT!

I featured some, but absolutely not all, of the animal-themed items that are going to be available yesterday. Today I’ve spotted a few wearable’s that I want to share.  As I go to press more pictures  are being added to the group, so don’t  be under any impression  that what I’m posting will be the  entire selection because this round of The Arcade is going to be HUGE with even more vendors than usual. You may want to consider selling a kidney.

So, first of all, I want ALL OF THESE:

Aren’t these simply exquisite? These cuddly Sci-Fi characters from HOPSCOTCH are absolute must-haves for geeks like me and I love every single one of them. I’m of course drawn to the Doctor Who dolls (who would have thought that The Silence could be cute?), but I’m also really taken by the Star Trek dolls too.  I just started watching Star Trek TNG on Blu-ray, and watched a few episodes featuring Q (the wonderful John De Lancie, also featured in My Little Pony as the voice of ….) last week, so it’s cool to see that he’s included.  Of course the Star Wars dolls are pretty astonishing too, as are the Harry Potter characters (especially Dumbledore) so I will be guaranteed many a happy return on my Lindens when I use this machine.  I expect there will be queues and tantrums at this Gachapon!

Up next we have  a collection that is deceptively simple but incredibly well executed: Headbands

My name is Kitty, I love cats, and occasionally I like to wear cat-ears.

Therefore I want ALL OF THESE from AUXILIARY.  Especially the ‘Unicorn’ rare. ‘Nuff said!

In total contrast to the above is my next selection, which is a wearable nightmare!

These CURIO OBSCURA boots are completely mental and are, quite frankly, the stuff of too much cheese before bedtime.   You’re looking at the Abomination Boots, and never has an item been so aptly titled in-world before! They look astonishing don’t they? Pandora Wrigglesworth has created some very special footwear here, perfect for stomping around the grid.   The five different styles that you see above are available in twenty different colours, just in time for Halloween. What’s your favourite? I really like the teeth and the eyeballs, and I can’t wait to see how people incorporate these boots into their outfits. These ‘abominations’ are definitely  the kind of imaginative awesomeness that Second Life should be applauded for.  Nice one Pandora!

Last but not least are these amazing items that will be featured in the REMARKABLE OBLIVION Snow Gacha. Ten stupendous snowboards designed for carrying on your shoulder and looking cool can be made even more impressive if you are lucky enough to win the rares, which are goggles and snow boots.  I already know my mate Mands has got her eye on these, let’s hope she gets lucky and wins the entire set!

Have I wet your appetite for The Arcade? I should ruddy well hope so, I’m drooling here! Remember to check out the Flickr group for more hints at the treats yet to come, and come back tomorrow when I will be featuring some of the astounding furniture items that are up for grabs!
