12.7.13

The follow-up post to yesterday’s “exterior” blog post.
Today I am bringing you a peek inside <3

'Tis The Season

I am using a bit of the same stuff from my last interior post but with a lot of new things added.
I just liked a lot of things ( the Christmas tree and stuff ) so I wanted to use them again :P

I tried to space the “sections” of the house out in the credits but be warned they are incredibly long <3

Click For Credits <3

Once Upon A Time.

I wanted to do one more sneak peek post for the items available at Enchantment which opens November 1st.

I opted to do a spin on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, using the house elves from OhMai Emporium.

Once Upon A Time

You can pick up this Snow White dress (also available in a bloody version) from -DRD- available at Enchantment when it opens. It also comes with a Snow White hair but since I wanted to look like I was running I used a hair with a bit more “motion”.

That’s all for now, I am off to finish up my Halloween cupcakes :P

On to the credits!

4.23.13 – Home & Garden

I love doing home/furnishing posts so today’s is gonna be pretty pic heavy and probably contain a lot of rambling :P
I recently obtained lots of new furniture thanks to a few new store releases and events that are currently underway so I want to share alllll the things.

First up, going to show off some new furniture from HANDverk that I set up inside the Scarlet Creative Saturday Morning Simple Skybox.

Snapshot_003

The Barcelona Chair and Couch from HANDverk are made using realistic scaling so they fit better to the standard sizes of the SL avatars. That means your couch won’t look like it should be able to hold 40 people on it, but realistically seat one or two avatars nicely. I don’t often go crazy for animations in furniture, but I was honestly impressed with the cuddles that are built into this couch. I LOVE them. I wish now that I showed some of them in this post, but I am so happy with them I am liable to go back and do another post so you guys can see them all. The adult version of this couch even includes adult animations, in addition to the cuddles. It offers 62 different animations total.

One of my other favorite pieces shown here is the Origami Crane Set from 11th Hour. I love cute little things such as this that I can rez around to make my house look a little more “lived in”. The Origami Crane Set is a hunt item for the Royal Living Magazine Birds and Bees Hunt and you can hunt for it up to the 28th, which everyone should go do.

The Liaison Collaborative’s new event, The Garden, started its first cycle not that long ago and has SO MANY great items for outdoor landscaping. One of my favorite sets is the Sheryl Garden Pergola from MudHoney:

Snapshot_002

The Sheryl Set includes the chair, bench, wire table, rug, pergola, lantern, drum table and ceiling fan, which actually moves. I had so much fun setting up this scene and once I added all the little bunnies I loved it even more. Hope you enjoy the set up as much as I do!

The Men’s Dept opened today for its newest cycle. 
I know I am not a man (obviously) but I always like to check out the event regardless, since they have nice furniture from time to time :D

This time is no exception.

[HANDverk] released a special version of The Eames Shell Chairs for TMD,  in both black and red. They include 7 animations ( for men ). 

RoomwithChairs

I set them up in the corner of the new build from Bishojo, which is a commercial prefab, but I liked the colors a lot so I used it as a little residential backdrop.

I also made my man pose for me to show off a pose that is built into the chair ( my pose is not part of the chair ).

Here’s all the details, including my outfit specifics -

I am blogging both fashion and furnishings today.

HANDverk recently released the new Longchamp Skybox in both a single and double version.
I am using the single version for today’s post.
Since this skybox is extremely low land impact I was able to set it up on my land without any worry of going over my prim limits.

The single version of this skybox is just 16 LI ( it’s mesh ), and with a footprint of 14mx32m it will fit on as small as a 512 sq.m. parcel.

1.28.13 - 2

I personally think this skybox, or the double, would be perfect for an elegant small store build. 
I opted to use it for a residential, open-floor plan apartment, but the options are really limitless. 

And now on to the fashion part! Since I realized while decorating this skybox that my outfit kind of matched it, I took my pictures against one of the walls :)

Medusa

“Beauty is that Medusa’s head which men go armed to seek and sever…
It is most deadly when most dead, and dead will stare and sting forever.”

Another Costume Ball look I put together. 
As soon as I saw this hair I had to have it. I love unique things like this.
While I probably won’t wear it around on a regular basis or anything, for this time of year and Halloween being tomorrow it was perfect. 

Pretty much everything I have on is from The Costume Ball. INCLUDING my skin.
It’s another version of the Alyx skin from Pink Fuel in a Femme Fatal make-up.
