Every good fairy knows to go back and check that their work is flourishing.
Naturally, if you’ve already done a good job, you can easily turn a quality control visit into a chance to stop and smell the flowers.
Well, the petite train has hit, and I honestly didn’t think I’d get on, but when Aikea Rieko from Plastik was going to put her skins to them, well… I couldn’t hold out. Besides, I had heard how wonderful mesh hands were, and .. two birds and all that.
Mesh hands are wonderful. I mean, I love mesh anyway (lazy blogger is lazy and not adjusting is a dream) and this is just great. Very minimal weird angles in poses – not only is there minimal clothing adjustment, it’s fun to actually be pixie size. (You should try it, I promise it’s not addictive.)
Plastik can be found on the Ruins of Nu Orne, while Evie’s Closet is on the Tides sim. The Fantasy Faire closes tonight – so I’ll stop spamming about it, but that also means that time is running down to go check it out.

…but it was boring. She knew she looked incredible, but that would never make talking about property lines interesting.
The worst part was that she had hopes for today’s meeting. There was a particular prince who was supposed to be there, and she had spent a good part of the morning trying to decide the best way to get rid of everyone else handle his visit.
Finding out that the prince you were expecting is just a charmning prim-dropper… you know the type, drops a whole house on someone else’s land – without permission. Acting like any open space is their own, personal, sandbox. Well, it’s good that a practiced come hither look can also tell someone to go slither away.
Here’s the really important stuff… that gorgeous red dress? Evie’s Closet. Those beautifully textured table and chairs? Rustica. The table and chairs are mesh, by the way. Evie’s Closet can be found at The Tides. Rustica can be found at Devil’s Locket. If you go through the teleporter in Rustica’s shop, you can see the table and chairs displayed in the new mesh house available for a special price at the Faire. Fair warning (no pun intended) – if this is your style, you’re going to want to buy everything in sight. I know I did.

Now that I’ve finally been able to get back in world, I have a suggestion. Lenka is a great new release from Evie’s Closet at the Fantasy Faire – this color (henbane) is one of her RFL donation items. I always love swishy skirts and this one is no exception.
So… here’s the important bits – you can find Evie’s Closet at the Fantasy Faire on the Tides sim. That’s the only place you’ll find Lenka until the Faire closes on Sunday.

You’re alone now, after getting back from a long night/day of dancing (or some other social activity) with your prince (or princess, or friends, or goldfish) and you feel hopeful, excited, like something great adventure just started. If the story had an author, this is the part after they’ve come back for you, and said goodbye one more time. Otherwise, you’ve just come home (generally speaking, the whole coming-back-to-see-you-one-last-time doesn’t really happen too often) and you’re alone. You’re nervous and giddy and your new adventure all you want to talk or think about, but you also don’t want to talk about it to anyone because if you speak of it, or even think on it too much… it might disappear. You feel alive.
So, what do you do?

Finally, I’m over being sick (mostly), have been able to get pictures with all of the clothing in focus (thank you SL), and actually liked the way they turned out. I can’t say that there hasn’t been much that has caught my fancy – I’ve done more than my fair share of shopping – but I’ve had the hardest time getting myself to put a whole look together and take pictures. I’ve started to feel guilty for not keeping up with Luna’s blogger challenge, and I wanted to get a bunch done at one time, which I did! (It’s the little things people.) However, instead of spamming you with huge pictures, I just want to show you some of the really really awesome things I found in the process of putting these looks together. And put the picspam nice and small at the bottom – because I can. 🙂
Three things I’ve found in catching up on the blogger challenge? Jewelry, Skins and Boots. Really, what more can a girl ask for? (Don’t answer that.)
I’ve never been much of a consumer of SL jewelry before. Absolutely, there have been some pieces that I just have to have and are amazing, but in general, it’s not one of my go-to shopping categories. Not a little part of that reason is that it’s not one of my real life addictions, so it’s not something I look for to “complete” an outfit. Shoes, on the other hand… are totally different, but that’s another story. Anyway, I put on the silver dress from Zaara, and it just needed something else. So, I searched… and searched… and came across so many things that somehow made their way into my inventory (budget, what budget?), and found the Logo bracelet and earrings, and the Mandala bracelet. Now, I just need to talk these designers into making me one to wear every day (pretty please?). A crazy close-up of these items is on my Flickr, just waiting to be viewed. The non-closeup just doesn’t do them justice.
The skin I first saw in a blogger preview pack from Aikea Rieko of the Plastik. I love her Lionheart skins, and I love her new Ataciara skins as well. Now, I’ve said before that she reads my mind, but this is starting to get scary. On the other hand, it’s also awesome (like 10,000,000 hot dogs awesome*), so I’ll stick with that. Anyway, she dropped her blogger pack on me and I promptly went out and bought a fatpack of my favorite tone, as well as all the elven tones. Why? Because they’re beautifully done and the makeups are amazing. The lips are a little bigger than her Lionheart skins, but they look great. I love that the Freckles come on a separate (tattoo) layer – and are tintable. Very cool (and fewer inventory items – yay!) I’ve used the skins in several of my pics, but you can see a freckled and non-freckled version in sienna, indigo and green.
As for the boots – well, I have a problem with shoes of all sorts, but boots are a special weakness. These leather boots by Mentine (in the silver and green pictures) are exactly what I’ve been looking for – for a long time. My favorite part? Other than everything – is that the fur can be turned off and on. Woo customization!
Of course, I won’t blog something if I don’t really like it, but these three things are new to me, so I wanted to mention them specifically.
