This is a Bonus Post today. I made this outfit and did the shoot, but couldn't figure out which of my blogs I was going to put it up on.

I had enough cheap stuff on, I figured I'd share with you all here. This look wasn't specifically made with this Free*Style in mind, so it isn't chalk full of freebies, like my normal looks are. Sorry if this disappoints any of you.

World Goth Fair is still going on, until the 31st. That is where i did my on location shoot today.


Fantasy Gacha Carnival is still going on as well, and that is where you will find these "Eye of the Spider" pieces. There are 3 colours to collect, and each set has a staff, headdress, necklace and armbands. The Headdresses are the rares.

If you haven't been to the Thrift Shop, I think that is ending really soon as well. PixyStix has their newest skin line, Evi, on for 60% off. There are gifts, gachas and other great discounts here as well.

Our very own Rosemarie has been a busy little bee, and put all her new series of eyes up on SL Marketplace. So you not only can visit Shop Free*Style, and get a pair, but you can go on SLM and grab them too.

Welcome to the Skydome!


So I have a Turnip Skydome on on this account, which I use sparsely, when blogging builds and gardens. I rarely do it, but it does sometimes happen.

Problem is, I don't have one on my other avatar, and sometimes I am not on the sim where I have my dome rezzed out.

So I was looking for alternative options today, and found this!

It comes in a 32x32 and a 64x64 sizing. It is mod, so you can add your own skies and ground textures.

Best part? it is FREE!

I hope you enjoy this random little find.

I am pleasantly surprised at this shot, the more I look at it, the more I am in love with it. I didn't even put my hands on, since it was suppose to be just a headshot pic.



I found these eyes as a sample at !Musa!. There is a full gacha series, which you can view below. This version is sort of like a wearable demo, you can see if you like them on your avatar, then if you do, play a few rounds on the gacha machine. 


I really like the albino and dawn versions.

The hair I am wearing is a new mainstore gift from Pocket Mirrors. This is a store that has been around for a long time, and I am glad they are still here creating. My shots don't do the hair justice at all, I might take more shots on a different post this week. The style comes with the hairbase, which is a really nice one. There are 4 free packs in total, each with 3 colourations. Look around the shop for more deals and some great classic styles. The male styles are done well too, I buy them for my malt.

Monday Morning Pinterest - Volume 3




Just spent an hour looking for things, both for myself, and for you all. Sileny has been busy too, there are a lot of new pins from over the weekend.

If you haven't visited us on our board yet, today is a good time to start.

My pinterest button was working a little wonky, so some of the links on the pins aren't hard linked, you will have to copy past those ones, there was about 5 that went screwy.

The items are things we either find on the grid, or over the net, which are free or cheap. Please enjoy the Window Shopping!

Nameless post

Hello!

As long as I've been in SL, Evangeline Miles has always been one of my favorite designers, back then, her flawless textures on prims made her one of the best gown makers on the grid. There was a meme on Plurk yesterday about people you find intimidating. Well her. She was. A LOT. Plus she was an admin on the sim where I was roleplaying, which made her nothing short of a goddess to me. 
Then one day, I can't even remember how it happened. She and I talked, and I realised that in RL, her life was pretty parallel to mine, and we have much more in common than I would have ever imagined. I am not intimidated by her anymore, but I feel humbled, every day, to count such an amazing person among my friends.

What I did now know about Evie Miles, though, is that she throws away amazing textures away, because they're not perfect enough for her. That girl is crazy, let me tell you. This time though, it seems she got her sense back and slapped one of these "not good enough" textures on her latest dress, Caoimhe (btw if someone can tell me how to pronounce that, I'll be very happy)

The result, a gorgeous Nameless dress, free for her group members, and only 100l$ for everyone else. If you've never bought anything from Evie's Closet, now's the good time to start.


The hair, you might have noticed, is not my usual color, but it's a gift and honestly I think I'll end up buy the color pack anyway. I did have a bit of an awkward moment, when, wondering why I didn't receive it, I realised I wasn't in the group. I still have no clue as to how that happened, but that mistake is corrected, and I can be faaaabulous now.

That post is actually all about gifts. Sileny told us the other day that we absolutely should join Secret Love inworld group, because it's going to turn awesome very quick. Well thank you Sil, I now have a gorgeous necklace and matching bracelet to prove your point.

Salon Sundays - Cotton Candy Monster



Salon Sundays is a new little feature I wanted to do, that showcases way to change a very simple look into another, using makeups and other beauty enhancements. 

Today I am showcasing some gifts from a store called Cotton Candy Monster. It is a newly discovered store for me. Not sure how long it has been around. I like it due to the colourful palette used for the products.

Above I am wearing the Valentines Eye Makeup in red, it also comes separately in pink. I have on the Candy Lips in Watermelon/Peach. The Candy Lips come in a 6 pack, with various dual coloured lips.



Above you can see the skin, before I put on the makeup layers. A more mature look here.

Two very different looks, achieved very easily.
