If you haven't had a chance to get sinful over at Festival of Sin II yet, head over to the Lust area for this beautiful skin by [PXL]. I'm wearing in the pale tone but for those who prefer more of a tan, you can also snag it in sunkissed! There are 3 makeups to choose from and each skin includes 4 eyebrow colour options plus a tintable eyebrow tattoo layer, 2 cleavage options on tattoo layers, mole and freckle tattoo layers (3 different shade options) and also sweetlips appliers.

Craving The Spotlight

One of my most favourite skins in my inventory is Glam Affair's Katra. So you can imagine how happy I was when I saw a new range of makeups for this skin at the latest round of Uber! There are 6 makeups available for Glam Affair Katra Ballerina, each in Polar, Europa and Jamaica skin tones.
Also in the ballerina theme, Glam Affair have designed this beautiful new collar that is available in 10 different colours from raven black to pretty pastels.

The gown I'm wearing is by Dead Dollz at Festival of Sin. It comes in 3 colours and has a super sexy low plunging neckline and even lower plunging back! Perfect for any glamour puss craving the spotlight ;)

Also head over to Grafica Poses mainstore to check out a new line of singles poses released for August!

Battle Cry

Festival of Sin is open - Are you ready to lust over some tantalizing new goodies to appease your vanity?
The Hottie Cooterati company opened the gates to the event at the weekend and I loved this fab hairstyle by Exile as soon as I saw it! A mix of some sort of tribal/post-apoc/warrior/punk look it just screams don't mess with me!
[CX] has created these impaled blades for arms and knuckles. They are resizeable so can mod to fit either men or women. They come with tattoo layers and appliers for TMP, Maitreya & Omega for bruises and scars to match the impaled spots of your body!
And as I seem to be feeling it for 'wrath' today, this bloody cleaver by 7mad;Ravens made a perfect accessory! (Clean version also included!)

I was so excited to see Dead Dollz participating in this round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and even more so when I saw the beautiful designs created by Kiddo! The 'Bismillah' tops and full length skirts are beautifully textured and contain stunning details. There are 4 common colours and 2 rare colours to play for!
Complimenting the outfit is the Bismillah jewellery, consisting of lip and nose chains in various colours.

The tattoo I'm wearing is by Things, also at FGC. There are 4 designs in the machine, each in 3 colours - red, black and white. Standard tattoo layers are included in addition to appliers for Belleza, Omega, TMP and SLink.

A new round of Shiny Shabby opens tomorrow and [Entwined] has created another stunning long length style. It sweeps over the shoulder to the front, leaving a few loose strands to fall down the back.

Glam Affair has a skin gacha at Kustom 9 and I was super-happy to see the exotic skin tone featuring again. 'Liss' is only available as Lelutka appliers but there is a wide range of tones and make-ups to play for! Each contains 5 different brow options.

Now time for a special note. Many of you in the blogging and photography communities in second life will know or know of Roxi Firanelli. Last week we were given the heartbraking news that Roxi had lost her son. A wonderful second life creator has designed this delicate mesh Eternity necklace in remembrance of Jeffery, beautifully titled “Eternity: Mother & Son.” 100% of the proceeds from this necklace will be going to Roxi to help her with funeral expenses. You can find it at the Enchantment event landing point or here on Nymphai.

The Sea Witch

If you haven't checked out Enchantment yet, you have only until the 5th Sept to check out the best mermaid inspired goodies available under our Second Life sea!
Lumae has brought a special mermaid inspired skin to this round of Enchantment. Adore Lanthe comes in 5 different make-up options for 100L each. The bodies are scaled like a mermaid and the face gives the option of scales or not. There are lots of appliers, including Maitreya, Belleza, Omega and TMP. Not forgetting mesh head appliers either, you can wear this with Genesis, Lelutka and Eve too! There are 3 different cleavage options included.
See the Ad for it here for a look with the face scales on Lelutka head.
Lumae is also taking part in the Enchantment hunt with another skin as the prize. See the pic here and go hunting for the purple shell here!

[Entwined] has created a new sleek and sexy long straight hairstyle that goes back over the shoulders, making it perfect for wearing jewellery like this beautiful mermaid necklace by Bliensen + MaiTai. All the usual colour packs are available for this style (including fantasy colours!) and the necklace comes in black or white options.

The Plastik has gone all out for this round of Enchantment and you can literally kit yourself out from head to fins with their pretties. One of which is this stunningly detailed 'Ursula' headpiece. There are 3 different versions, I'm showing the full, and each is so so customisable by the included HUDs. You can literally change the colours of all the parts individually making what must be hundreds of different combinations for wearing this. The pack includes both materials and non-materials versions. 
My top and tail are also by the Plastik and there are a ton of different colour options for this. The packs include standard and 'wet' options. And guess what guys? Yes there is merman versions too so you don't get left out :P

Ursula seems to have inspired a few of our fave SL designers at this event, as it's also the name for the pretty head jewellery by Charm and the theme for these fab tentacle bangles by Dead Dollz!

The flippin' coin is from the gacha by Bro, Brah, Bruh (BBB)
These coins are super cool and besides using them as fun pic props, they are actually animated too! You can flip them at will, randomly or as your typing animation. There are loads of different versions to collect and I'm showing one of the rares.

Hope you like the pic and lotd!

Sailor's Warning

Red sky in the morning, Sailors Warning!
OMG! Just one more day until the new round of Enchantment opens and there is so much pretty fantasy stuff swimming round I don't know what to do next! The Little Mermaid is the theme, from the Disney version to the tales of old. Today I've based my look on the idea of the mermaids of old English folklore, who were responsible for causing stormy seas and luring sailors to their destruction (for the record, no sailors were harmed in the making of this feature!)

Azoury had created some amazing tentacled headpieces for the event. There are 3 colours available and what a shock, I'm wearing the black :P
The texture work is fab as always by Azoury and these really are gorgeous pieces.
Up until yesterday, I have to admit I was a mer-tail virgin, but I've finally dived in with this beautiful tail by JUMO. There are mens and womens versions available in a bunch of colours and each comes with 3 different tail fin options, plus mermaid AO.
The tail came with bra too but I've decided to team it up with the scales bra that .aisling. has created for the event. It's not rigged and the left/right parts are separate. Again there is a bunch of colours available and I love how this could be used for some really different looks, I think it could be a new fave piece!
Finishing off the look today I'm wearing the new eye makeup mask by ARISE. Again, there are multiple colours for this mask and not only does it come in standard tattoo layers, there are appliers for Lelutka, Eve and Genesis Lab mesh heads!

I'll post the LM when the event opens tomorrow, 'till then I'm just gonna tease you with the pic!

Hitting the street with the current round of Uber!
I couldn't quite decide if I felt like Paparazzi or if I felt like I was hiding from them for this pic, so I'll let you make up your own minds!
I love the new bikini's by Erraticdesigned especially to fit Maitreya Lara mesh body. I feel like I've been waiting for so long for items like this that snugly fit the mesh body and I'm so glad that second life creators like erratic (& also Foxes as mentioned in my last post) are embracing the change from the classic avatar over to mesh.
 There are are a bunch of different colours for this bikini but staying true to form I went for the black. The others are kinda two-tone with black and the colour. You can find them all at Uber.
Also at Uber this month, Reign has these fab new sneakers. They are so darn cute! Again, a bunch of colours & textures available but I went for the black. And again, I love how snugly they fit the mesh body!
I dug into my inventory for some old faves to wear with them, I hope you like the lotd!

Just let go and embrace your dream

After many many agonizing hours of trying to get into the anniversary round of Collabor88 on Sunday, I eventually made it (I think it was something like a commemorative 888 teleport attempts!)
It was well worth it. There are some dreamy new goodies on offer from even more of our favourite second life creators compared to normal rounds. 
I just love the sock and ballet pump combos by Reign, which fit a whole range of mesh bodies as well as standard avatar and include both tip-toe and flat-foot versions. The texture on the socks is awesome too!

I'm not usually one for wearing rings but I needed these new sets by ieQED as soon as I saw them. There are several colours available and all include fits for Maitreya hands as well as SLink casual and TMP relaxed (excellent for those who don't have the patience to get all fiddly with adjustments, like say... me!)
Speaking of things I can't resist, Exile has 2 new windblown hairstyles for the event. Exile always does great styles for pics and posing and the new ones are no exception!

Foxes have brought a sexy new intimates range to Collabor88 this time out. There are tons of different colours available and everything now comes in mesh body compatible sizes - so for those of you who love Maitreya and Belleza, you'll be very happy to get perfect fits on your lingerie!
Glam Affair has introduced a new skin line for C88. 'Luna' is available in a range of make-ups, each available in 3 skin tones - Europa, Jamaica and India. 

Some of the most fabulous pieces at Collabor88 this August come from the decor creators though. These carousels by {vespertine} are magical. They spin, play music and come with different options for sitting. There are 3 colours available and each includes 3 different size objects (varying Li) in each pack.
{anc} never disappoints when it comes to whimsical decor & props. Add amazing atmosphere to any scene with these mist clouds, which come in 2 colours and 2 different shapes, and Nebra beads.
And to top it off, just look at those beautiful puppies!! They come in milk or cream, with several different models included in each pack. They also have collar on or off options.
Each of the {anc} pieces can be purchased separately or as a discounted fatpack.

If you're still having issues getting into C88 - remember everything will be there until 6th Sept!

In the meantime, you can always check out some of the fab new poses Grafica has in mainstore ;)

Sirens - Sneak peak for Enchantment!

A brand new version of the Enchantment event is just around the corner! 
Opening August 14th, the focus of this round is all things The Little Mermaid (& not just the Disney version!). As a little teaser, I got together with Duchess & Sorchiee yesterday to show off some of the enchanting new goodies available. We're all wearing the new Dafne dress by !gO!, which you'll be able to get your hands on once the event has opened. 
And... after taking the pic we went to show them off at the Feel Good bar over on Nymphai for some trivia to really get everyone in the mood for the event! I had a blast meeting a bunch of you guys there (is nice to put actual people to some of the names you see across Flickr lol). I was also blown away by Sorchiee serenading us all with her best Ariel impressions! There are going to be some other mini-events going on during Enchantment too, so keep an eye out for them and come meet everyone!
We're also all wearing one of the gorgeous new updo's by [Entwined], which you'll find at this month's We Love Roleplay - remember get it there with a discount before it goes to store!!

A New Home For We Love Roleplay!

The sim itself is absolutely beautiful, with lots of picture perfect spots and there is now room for even more of our favourite Second Life fantasy creators to take part.

The bodysuit dress I'm wearing today is new by Dead Dollz for the event and is available in 8 different colours. 

The Chapter Four also opens tomorrow and Azoury has created another fabulous show for the event. Falling somewhere between an invention and a work of art, the Spère shoe comes in black, brown, orange and white. Each pack contains shoes to fit SLink, Belleza, Maitreya & Eve. The really nice part? They are just 174L$ per pair during the event, after which they'll be sold at 349L$ in the mainstore.
