Glamurena Witch

I can’t quite recall how I came about finding Glamurena Studios,  I know i had been in search looking for something and randomly tp’d.  So glad I did, as this was quite a find.   I immediately snagged some eyes (not shown here today), skin demos (also not blogging today, but go grab some demos), but I did snag their luscious silk blouse in creme, and loved it so much I went back for hair, another shirt, and my favorite witch outfit!   But first check out my new toy, thanks to Kari and Torridwear.  A group gift, this perfect witches broom was delivered just as I had discovered my old one wasn’t working.  Filled with great Torrid anims featuring several flying poses, sits, etc.  Someone asked me which group it had been in and after sorting through my emails I can confirm its in the Kari update group, and the Torridwear update group, all tucked inside a cute pumpkin too!

Trick or Treat...Shhhh!  I bewitched your poseballs.

Glaurena Halloween Pumpkin Set
Glaurena Halloween Pumpkin Set

Glamurena Studios‘s Halloween Pumpkin set was exactly what I was looking for in a witch costume.  Funky Orange and Black striped stockings and gloves with garters,  peasant style bodice with prim princess sleeves, tight well textured corset, and a feathery, fringy black skirt that shows the perfect amount of leg. Included a undershirt of cobwebs, and a Witch Hat with sculpty pumpkins, that paired with my latest shoe acquisition the Bax Boot from Bax Coen in Black Patent Leather fully scripted with walks, color change heels, tips, eyelets, and even add on lace in a variety of colors I was set to go.  Glamurena Halloween Pumpkin set also comes in a lovely purple shade as well.  Shown with  ETD‘s new release Vasha in chestnut;  Celestial Studios Deviant Nation – Vogue Skin – Cashmere (Vamp – Enchant); and Scarlia Inc’s Flame Eyes Version 2.

Glaurena Silk Bouses & Jeans
Glaurena Silk Bouses & Jeans

The silk blouses come with prim collar and sleeves, and are lush in details and color, on the jacket layer,  I paired mine shown in Chocolate and Cream with their JeansOpera Light Blue Jeans which are well done, and prim pant legs I really like.  Shown with ETD‘s Davina II in Copper; BAX Ankle Boot Black Patent; Celestial Studio‘s Vogue Skin – Cashmere (Noir – Glitter) Freckled.

I really love this store, and I have only one complaint..well two..1. Need more clothes  2. Multiple Layer options.  The designer Kauri Darkstone is turning out a superb design, she’s got skills, talent, and an eye for detail and does amazing seam work, they are perfect!.  But the layer options are only on the jacket layer for the silk blouse and the corsets.  I am begging everyone who likes this store to please send a nice note asking for her to consider doing items on the Jacket, Shirt, and Undershirt Layer, so we can wear them more. I had also been thinking I could wear the corset and skirt from the witch dress with other items, the corset yes, but the skirt I will have to make glitch pants for as the bottoms for the skirt are on the same layer as the stockings.  I was also looking to get a corset thinking I could wear it on the shirt layer, with a open jacket over it, but alas not these.  The corset are very well done, and I want one of each.

Glamurena Studios currently has two hair styles out, both with attached hats. Shown here is the BonBon Hair Brown Tones(V0.2) pack which contains 2 shades.  The hat itself is scripted with various winter/fall colors, even stripes!  The texture and detail is again superb.   I paired with the Glamurena jeans, and Strayer‘s group gift the Halloween Sweetshirt.

I have two sets of eyes I want to share from Scarlia Inc, I have many more and will be blogging/reviewing them in small allotments due to SL/RL fun glitches.  I used the Flame eyes for my witch outfit they are perfect for Halloween fun.  I noticed that about the eyes from this store they are fun mixes of color and shadow, you will be surprised!  Definitely worth a stop to check them all out.  Shown here are Flame, and Wintergreen notice the 4 graduations in shade, and how stunning each are.  Nice flecks, and overall good sized, and realistic looking..outside color that is..LOL..If only RL could give us these eyes!

Aleri Darkes Virgo Skins

Aleri Darkes just rebuilt her store and it coincides with her latest skin release her Virgo line.  This line is heavily modded Splendor skins, so fans of those will love the new variety she has created.  Stunning make ups, and a lovely attention to detail in every one, with heavy modding of face and body.  Each skin tone comes in a variety of styles shown here is the tan tone.

Stunning to be sure, I was hard pressed to not to turn a skin photo session into a lingerie shoot.  Since I brought it up, I should mention that each skin is comes in 3 bikini styles (demo for a looksee), and she has has been kind enough to include several sets of lashes.  The lashes come in a full set, tops only, bottoms only, left eye, and right eye only versions so you are prepared for a variety of sweeping hair styles, and various accentuations of the lovely eye make-up.  I want to particularly mention that I found the in the Tan line, the Mata Hari, and Tarot to be very lovely.

W. Winx-Timeless Colonnade Ruin

Timeless Columnade Ruins
Timeless Colonnade Ruins

I recently set out the W. Winx-Timeless Colonnade Ruin at  Heathrow. The Timeless Series is another series I am working on, specially designed for a forest setting, but does well in forested parcels too.  The Colonnade Ruin in particular is a very large one height-wise and is stunning set in nature, along water, mountains etc.  It will make one want to explore to find it when viewed from a distance.  I’ve included a bonus column to arrange at the sight to complete the effect.  Covered in white roses, it’s a classic, dreamy, and romantic addition.

I will be adding items from this series as I tweak some details on them.  Adding them to your outdoor space adds quite alot of atmosphere and setting, and with the added implement of Torley’s amazing windlight settings you can effect a surreal environment, and really showcase your space.  The Timeless Series will feature a columned cuddle ruin, fountain, grotto, ruined gazebo, and waterfall.

Available inworld at W. WinxXstreet.

Hot LALA Jackets

Hotla Hoodoo of Hot LALA Designs, has some great jackets for fall.  Her Inbound Jacket, and Suede jackets have a rich texture, and the color palettes for them are perfect.

Hot LALA Suede Jacket with Jean Capris

The richness of this jacket’s texture is what draws me in, but I am over the moon with the generous cut of the front, and the style variations.  While all on the jacket layer, you get a on layer full sleeve version, a sexy sleeveless version, and for added effect you can wear the bottom on a skirt layer to give them both dimension.  The jean capri’s are great, I wore them with the skirt jacket bottom off so you can check out the bum, they come with prim cuffs with extra detailing, while Hot LALA clothes are transferable she smartly perms them modify.

Fall Photo Hud

Well Second Life has been a pain all week, and murphy’s law has been in effect. Nothing like going to photograph skins, and other items, and find after hours spent carefully doing so, that all of them have your hud/interface on. 😉   So I busied myself with other things to wait out a streak of bad luck.

I have finished a photo hud with 16 frames/borders, effects for some fun inworld photos.  I made some of them specially for the darkest of settings for some fun mist/fog/spectral effects.  If you are not familiar with a photo hud, you wear it, frame your shot, save photo to disc, and crop in any image editing program.

I’m adding some fall centerpieces this week too if Second Life accommodates, but next my skin posts.

Impressione Announces the Opening of a New Art Exhibit Featuring the Works of four Yip at the KMADD Center for the Arts

In the tradition of showcasing the most creative, talented people of Second Life, KMADD welcomes four Yip to KMADD Center for the ARTS.  The exhibit opens on Friday, October 10th, at 3pm SLT, followed by Mitch Triellis ( live from Chile singing famous old school jazz songs (Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin) on the KMADD City Plaza beginning at 4pm slt.  Kirk, Maddox, and four may take a moment to drop by during the opening!

Building up to the Friday’s gallery opening, four Yip was recently a guest on Sunday night‘s Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe,

four Yip is a shining star in 2D digital art.  She is a master with graphic manipulation in Photoshop, where she turns snapshots of avatars she meets and creates realistic portraits that look like a combination of a painting and a photograph.  Often whimsical, always evocative, Yip’s work stands powerfully on its own.  It opens wide the window to the soul of the player behind the avatar, picking up on clues of that person’s personality from their style and appearance.  Some may recognize Yip from her notable presence in the SL Flickr community, others from her tiny, quirky shop in which she “sells” everything for free from a propeller swing for four, to winged, stork-legged bird chairs to a Charlie Chaplin cinema package (moving background included).

The exhibit opens October 10th and is part of KMADD City’s one year anniversary celebration running from October 9-12.

Merry Go Rounds at Alices Garden
Merry Go Rounds at Alice's Garden

I went over to Alice’s Garden recently, and found she had put out the merry go rounds her signs had advertised.  They are stunning!  Merry go round 1 is a fun favorite, click and sit and get a nice twirl, only 31 prims and an astonishing $149 price!  The same goes for Merry go round 1, a traditional carousel with charming horses, fully working, 76 prims, and same price of $149.  An adorable steal.

Riverside Shopping in Munchkinland at Magic of Oz
Riverside Shopping in Munchkinland at Magic of Oz

Candy Cerveau and Malkavyn Eldritch (power couple & SL Giant) and designers for Eye Candy, and Treasured Visions, (omg serious giggles) would like to announce that “We’d like to thank everyone for making the Grand Opening of Magic of Oz an incredible experience… we couldn’t have hoped for a more wonderful and enthusiastic response and we are so glad that people seem to love Oz like we do.  The hunt has been extremely popular and the sim has stayed at capacity for 3 days now.  I know that there are people who have not been able to get in enough to find all the items and some have not been able to get in at all.  So we have decided to extend the hunt until Friday the 10th at 10 pm SLT! This is a thank you from us to all the people who have supported the sim.  We are so grateful to you and to our fantastic vendors whose gifts made the hunt as epic as it was.  So spread the word – the Slipper Hunt is here for another 5 days!”

Yeah I know, this hunt has been one of the most challenging, as they are using a object rezzor to cleverly rez the red slippers around the sim, as soon as one has been found, it disappears, and is rezzed in another location.  Challenging, but we are having so much fun!  Here’s the list of some of the items, more have been added and green stationary slippers too.

Here’s a checklist of the hunt items:

Outside there are pumpkins and vines, providing more seating to enjoy the change of season.  4 singles poses, and 5 couples poses throughout.  64 prims, and Copy/Mod/No Transfer.

It’s a fun little garden novelty for you to enjoy, currently listed on OnRez, and SLex, I can rez it inworld on request for more viewing and am in process of looking for the perfect spot to set up a permanent location for it.  Check my Picks to see if I have placed it inworld, if I do it will most likely to start be places at the Cafe Yard Sale in there.

Don’t forget the Magic of Oz-Grand Opening is still in full swing, with parties, giveaways, gifts, and a hunt click here for details.

Magic of Oz (MOO) Sim Grand Opening & Hunt

Candy Cerveau and Malkavyn Eldritch (power couple & SL Giant) and designers for Eye Candy, and Treasured Visions, have created a wonderful new themed sim Magic of Oz.   Today was the first day of the Grand Opening event, and was fun!  I have been frequenting the sim for a couple of weeks now, with stress tests, and other fun stuff.  For those who love Second Life photography and exploring this is not a sim to miss!  Check out some pictures before I hit you with the amazing schedule of events this weekend.

ZOMG! Witches Castle meets Steampunk...I'm gonna faint!

Yes, steampunk, I know you probably don’t think of steampunk when you think of Wizard of Oz, and probably still have images from the movie with Judy Garland stuck in your head but..THINK! You will definately want to install some of Torley Linden’s Windlight Presets before you go…Click here.

Magic is indeed a good descriptor for this sim, the colors, the lights, the curves, all of it superior quality with amazing things to see.  I have had access to this sim for 2 weeks, and I tell you I have been all over it, and always found something new that I didn’t notice before.  There is so much here (besides the shopping) you will find yourself coming back to see more, and I am only showing you a portion.  If you come to explore, its hard to stay on the yellow brick road, you have been warned, you know you shouldn’t leave the path…but here you should… more after the cut. (please let the feed do the cut)
