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.

…not quite a human, but that’s what makes mermaids so special – so magical.
Who doesn’t want to play under the water? Enjoying the sunshine and being able to swim without having to come up for air. Perfection.
But there are some small group of mermaids who want to experience life above the waves. Luckily, this one doesn’t have to worry about turning into sea foam. Still, some habits die hard – especially when you’ve first lost your tail. Thank goodness for sea shells. (More on my Flickr.)
The important stuff… Mer-chandise Cove provided the beautiful mermaid outfit in picture 1 for one of their RFL donation items at the Fantasy Faire. They can be found on Siren’s Secret. The top and belt is the Tidal Treasure item from their regular catalog. So glad I got to try out this new-to-me store!

That time of day when you’ve been out (or in) and it feels like the rest of the world is finally asleep – when the first light of morning creeps in… that’s my favorite.
I think I’ve missed too many days to really do the 12 days of lingerie, but I do always enjoy the look of a well made corset (in either life).
Corset: Dilly Dolls
Shoes: Pixel Mode
Skin: Glam Affair
Eyes (you can see them in the other picture on my Flickr): Poetic Colors
A gentle reminder that there’s a sale going on at the Plastik right now – and everything is on sale. Why? A little hard drive mishap – and it needs to get repaired. In the interest of full disclosure, I am on Aikea Rieko’s blogger list. However, I’ve had a healthy appreciation of her work since I first logged in. So… go!
I know a lot of those outfits have been blogged before – I have new ones coming up, but I wanted to give you a sample of what you can find over at Plastik… (there’s a whole set on my Flickr page in case you’re interested- it’s a healthy addiction, I swear).
These are going to be a little different today. Since there are so many different outfits above, I’ve only listed the stores included. If you want to know something specific, click on the picture – my Flickr page has credits on each one. Also, until I get a chance to add them below, store slurls can be found back on my SL Locations page. (Thanks!)

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?

I didn’t really mean for this to turn into my just posting pictures and not really writing anything (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it just wasn’t my intention for this blog), but things have been a little blah lately and I haven’t really had much to say.
That isn’t really fair to the amazing creators who make me smile every time I open up their notecards. I’ve been especially excited over Gala Phoenix’s latest faces for Curio, Lelutka’s latest hairs, and epoque’s new line – LOVE. I don’t think I really need to say how much I adore Aikea Rieko’s work. There’s a reason I have a whole folder dedicated to it on my Flickr. I could fangirl over these wonderful designers forever, but I won’t because I like to think I have a little decorum… not much, but a little.

Every once and a while, it’s okay to get a little clingy.
(I think I’m so clever. – Well, as long as someone does, right?) Anyway, the time-sensitive bits are these: the dress that is part of La Venta Eventa (so is only up until Sunday night), and the skin (RFL donation item). RFL is coming to an end this weekend, so go pick up this beautiful skin in support of great cause.
