Uber Peer Pressure

Untitled
Uber takes a while to get into when it first opens. It’s such a popular event and I, too, was keen on getting my hands on some of those goodies. I made it in last night on a fluke and gathered up some demos. When I tried again today, the main area was full so I managed to get myself into the cam shopping area. Well and good, until I fell off that platform. As I was hurtling down in the air in a free fall, I thought I might as well try to TP into the main area again. And, whoops, there I was! At Uber and about to pick up some lovely lovelies! My sister got in earlier than me, and she regaled me with stories about what she purchased. Not to be outdone (and overcome by peer pressure, I’m sure of it), I also went a little fatpack crazy. Hey, that sounds like a good title for an SL song: Fatpack Crazy!

Anyway, I’m wearing the hot Dita Jeans from L&B Swear (only available in a fatpack so what choice did I have??) and the wonderful Misty Shirt from Just Because. I was lured by the special floral textures that come with the fatpack, so again, what choice did I have! 🙂 My hair is from Uber as well. [Monso] My Hair, Limna in the Mixed pack. The rest of the details follow. And try not to fall off any platforms, although good things can happen!

Friday Friday is a good time to shine

Untitled
New dress, new shoes, new what I mean? 🙂 I’m wearing a fun little dress that’s part of the Neve by coldLogic new release. They really are the go-to shop for fun spring and summer dresses. Each one comes with a 4-colour hud so you get 4x the dresses! (Or something like that. Math and stats are not my strong suit.) Next up, more new shoes from G Field! The Ashley Scalloped Mule is sold in a three-pack or the 24-colour fatpack. The rich and lush colours will go with everything you have this spring fashion-wise.

Rubber Chicken

Untitled
Fill my eyes with that rubber chicken
No disguise for that rubber chicken
Ooh, when it gets through to me, it’s always rubbery
My rubber chicken gets the best of me
Apologies to Foreigner

So my sister did a blog post where she was all decked out holding some kind of ray gun and I thought the ray gun was a rubber chicken. Lightbulb! Of course I could find a rubber chicken in Second Life. Enter Bird-E-Mart and the Squeeze-E-Chicken. I’m now rubber chickened up!

I’m wearing the amazing MegaPlatformSandals and SheerSocks from COCO. These new beauties come in several different colours, and the socks are optional. Where, you ask? At Shoetopia! It’s not quite open yet but be ready when the doors open on March 26 to get your shoes on.

I’m sporting some new-to-me hair from (Chemistry) Hair. A hat tip to Gillian at DeuxLooks.com who was wearing some (Chemistry) Hair in a post I saw this morning. I just flew over to SL Marketplace and loaded up on demos. Such lovely work!

The rest of the details follow.
Rubber chicken!

A Spoonful of Shoetopia

My title combines 2 things I’m featuring today: the Spoonful of Sugar Festival and Shoetopia.

The Spoonful of Sugar Festival is on now, raising funds for MSF/Doctors without Borders. With 100% of the proceeds going to the cause, alaskametro is featuring the Foil Flash Tattoo gacha. Materials appliers are included for Slink, Omega, and Maitreya and the rare version includes everything on one layer! That’s what I’m sporting right now and let me tell you, there are more tattoos under the covers! Beautiful.

Shoetopia is a shoe lover’s dream and it gets underway on March 26. There are some beautiful and interesting shoes and boots to tantalize you. I’m particularly happy to see that G Field has created new boots! The Posy Scalloped Boots are kicky and fun, and will go with a plethora of outfits. I couldn’t resist the 8-color pack that includes 8 boot and charm colors, many different colors for the laces, and three different heels. *sigh*

Happy shopping!

Dive, Dive, (Diner)!

Untitled
Today involved some inventory diving, which I like to do because it sometimes feels that once items are in there, I never see them again. Of course that does mean that some of the items aren’t available anymore. I’ve indicated when I picked some of the stuff up below. The newest item I’m featuring are these fantastic glasses from [meisu]. The Oli glasses come with a versatile hud for customization. I’m also sporting great shorts from Maitreya, a fun/serious sweater vest from The Annex, and some of my favourite little sneakers from Slipper. For location, I found a moody diner in PSY CITY. It felt very comfortable. The rest of the details follow.

And then I found the chicken.

Untitled
I love the Gates of Melancholy. Such a beautiful and poignant place filled with amazing sights and great places for picture-taking. So, I wandered about and snapped some pics. And then I found the chicken.

I spotted these great pants from [SAKIDE] in a little shop and then I forgot where so I went to trusty SL Marketplace and found them there. The Denim Worker Pants have a hud for belt, straps, and metals. If you get the fatpack, you’ll have 4 textures of pants: 3 blue denim washes and a black wash. And while these pants are for standard mesh sizes, I made them work perfectly with my Maitreya mesh body. Love!!! And speaking of Maitreya and love, I could not resist the fatpack of tanks you can find over there. For a long while I’ve been looking for some basic tanks in a range of colours and these from Maitreya fit the bill. I’m wearing pretty hair from [monso] that you can pick up at kustom9. The bangs are fantastic. All my other goodies are listed below.
