My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

We usually hang out and just chat everything. We thought we would start podcasting some of our conversations as a way to engage and reflect our thoughts on various topics related to Second Life from a particular event we shopped to more expanded relevant topics.

Autumn Masquerade

So Sasy invited me to tag along to a masquerade ball being held by The Fashion Loft. I’ve not been to a formal event in years. #platformdwelling So, there was some shopping to do. I decided it’s October, autumn, there was a high chance of many attending would go with a gothic or Halloween theme, in additional to very formal and elaborate. I’m pleased to say I calculated correctly. A few were horror/gothic, most were black or red gowns.

I went with Autumn as my theme and wanted to keep it very simple. I found this great mask first, a gacha from HEXtraordinary, and went from there for aesthetic. I knew it might be a challenge to find a good fit color wise, then I recalled the immense number of gowns from my past social life I collected long ago that hadn’t even been worn yet and with BOM now in effect I had many options. So glad Slink has come out with the Slink Physique Hourglass Mesh Body Bundle (Redux)! Very pleased that I can wear some fantastic system skins I have like the Isla skin by League.

I haven’t been a huge fan of mesh gowns as I don’t care for the movement waist down due to rigging, so I deep dived for some flexi. I revisited my Last Call, and Nicky Ree stash. However, nothing matched the tones of my mask I had already selected and was determined to use.

A quick review of Marketplace turned up this lovely autumn gown by Caverna Obscura. It’s available in a few autumn gradients, and I went with brown in case there was someone else with the same idea, they would likely go with the “Pumpkin” option which was more vibrant. The dress did not come with any alphas, so I found an alpha from a slip dress that worked.

The mask and dress were a great match. I tinted some gold opera gloves (system layer) from Adam n Eve to match the bodice. I eschewed jewelry and went with some particle sparkles in gold and green from Cole’s Corner which are currently available at Uber. Since I haven’t actually shopped in a while for formal wear or even purposely chosen an updo for such purposes I went with a half up half down style from Kuni. It was pulling out older content and I was pleased with how well much of it held up since mesh. Looking forward to hopefully wearing some in the near future.

Hot Summer

Lelutka recently released some fun bento items – Delights Cream, and Gum Gum Boom. Perfect summer fun, Gum Gum Boom features chewing gum, bubble option, and customizable HUD with bento animations. For those hot summer days, Delights Cream shown here provide a customizable ice cream cone, with matching bento animations. I love that it also features layer related ice cream, and a napkin to clean up that pesky mess.

The City Limit

The City Limit

LeLutka released several new heads today.  To read the full release notes, visit LeLutka‘s update post.  I’m wearing Spencer in this post, along with YS&YS’s latest skin for LeLutka heads – Emilia.

Spencer is really unique when you take a look at it. I found the eyes were particularly striking. The cheeks are nice to work with on the sliders as is the chin. I really think this will be a great head to really play with eye makeup with. I’ve styled it with Mina’s new hair Molly, which is currently available at Uber.

Summer Sun

Summer Sun

LeLutka is set to release several new heads this week. Here is a sneak peek of May. They are all bento, and with this release also comes an update to past bento heads Simone, Chloe, and Cate with new facial animations.  They range from a variety of moods you can cycle through, and even have more than one selected, as well as mouth poses and animations.  Also new, and what I really like, is the ability to toggle off one ear, rather than both ears to accommodate even more variety of different hairstyles. To read the full release notes, visit LeLutka‘s update post.

I’m wearing May with YS&YS’s Olga appliers. I really like how cute baby face May can run, and played around with a variety of skins, but settled on Olga for her.  I’ve decided my May/Olga combo make her look of Ukrainian descent. Yes, when I dress my avatar I reinvent her each time with a whole history and lifestyle. Virtual barbies ya know?  I’ve styled them with some recent releases from Exile and Ison that until tomorrow – August 8th, are available at Collabor88, thereafter at their main stores.
