Gypsy Warmth and Thanks

This post is going to be a little more brief and less detailed than usual simply because I’m quite tired and there’s a lot I want to get done.

I sincerely hope that those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving or just enjoy the time to spend with your families that it was one filled with peace, love and togetherness.

thanks

If you went shopping, I hope you got some bargains. So much happened and I bought so much that I just don’t feel I can even cover it all. But I do hope all of you were able to snatch up some good second life bargains too. The best thing about shopping in sl is, you can do it sitting on your couch in your pjs.

gypsywarmth002The look that I’m featuring today includes some of the buys that I made over the weekend. Wasabi Pills had a sale on their Basics Packs, 100L for a pack of several essential tones including this blonde. This is the Marissa hair and though you can’t see it, it has lovely braids down the back and it comes with a hud to change the little bands on the braids. Gorgeous.

Neve also had a Black Friday sale, outfits half price and this is the Dreamer sweater and skirt dress in Meadow. Each outfit comes in a 3 pack of colors and there’s a hud which usually allows some mixing and matching. You can’t see it but I’m wearing the skirt part in a brown floral print, very autumnal in my opinion which has some green leaves that match the sweater.

Even though I bought several items during Skin Addiction’s Black Friday sale <3, I’m actually sporting a full price skin. I was gleeful to discover that League has released appliers for catwa and immediatelly snapped them right up. I was a long time fan of League’s system skins and I am much in love with Ella, the catwa head applier.

I’m wearing the medium skin tone and I also bought, of course, the body applier for my Lara as well as a set of matte lipsticks, which you can also see me wearing above. The head applier comes with brow options, eye makeup options and lipstick choices as well.

gypsywarmth001My photographs were taken in a really nice Gypsy Caravan by Angelic Designs. The animation is included as are a choice of a few others. It was on offer for 100L for Steals and Deals this week and I just loved it. It’s warm and rustic and inviting and just right. I’ve parked it on my sim as a wintery rest area 😀 *Please note, i can’t guarantee that the Caravan will stay on sale for long. Hurry!

Cosmetics –

Lashes appliers by Shiny Stuffs called Flutter

Nail appliers by Zoz called Cascade Fall Polish set to silver

LoTD – Sweater Weather

I live in a relatively warm climate, in Virginia, but it’s starting to get more than nippy in my neck of the woods and now we’ve got Daylight Savings time in place, I’m pulling out my sweaters that were stored over the summer.

Today I’m showing you a mix of items I’ve picked up in the not too distant past and one of the things I want to show is that every item you buy doesn’t have to cost 200L or more at a pop.

Lootd – Autumn Days

I apologize so much for being so tardy with posting. Not only did I get a new pet as mentioned previously but I also had a disastrous malware problem and then evidently Windows 10 has issues and well it was a giant clusterxxxx. So, all of these items are former sale items and again my big apologies with reporting on them but, if you like ’em you can still grab ’em sale or no.

autumndays003I tried a new technique on these pictures, taking them on green screen and then adding a background. If you like tutorials, I followed this one on how to extract from green screen – here. I used a few other things as well including adding a layer, using a brush in the color range and painting over any lingering greenish areas and then turning the layer to hue under blending changes. I then just merged layers and so on. I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out!

More details and pictures for this look after the jump!

Little Bit of Darkness

Halloween being only a few weeks after my birthday has always been special to me. So I’m getting ready early with hopefully a few different posts on Halloween looks. Today was payday for me so I did a good bit of running around the grid.

littlebitdark01I am normally always a blonde, but this outfit needed a darker hair, a darker skin, spooky eyes and darker lipstick. After the jump you’ll get all the details including where to get this awesome pumpkin with built in poses.

Fall Into Fall – Noob Edition

Hi there, I feel I’ve fallen down a bit on the Noob job since I did throw in the Lindens for a few not free or starter type items. One, I did buy my noob the Maitreya – Lara mesh body. Look, everyone is different in terms of both what they feel comfortable spending and also what kind of body they like. No harm no foul whatever your choice is.

I just happened to feel I was missing that mesh body too much so I invested in one. Unfortunately you cannot buy the body online, you do have to go to the Maitreya store, and you can grab a demo to try it on first. If you are not aware, the Maitreya body comes with skin presets that match the Glam Affair skin range. It also comes with hands and feet, the feet come in 3 versions: flat, medium, and high.

maitreyaFollow the beacon from the slurl above until you find this display. Note that the demo is free and there is a sign to tell you what the body includes.

In The Forest – October

So, I’ve been focusing on my noob lately but tonight I logged in on my main avatar and I was delighted to find that The Forest  (link opens for the event’s info page) for October had opened. October 12 was my birthday so it was a bit like getting a birthday present! I also made stops @ The Chapter 4 and Liaison Collaborative, but this post is mainly about the items you can find in The Forest. Pay 1kL for the membership group and all the gifts are yours. I counted 3 dresses, 3 hairs, 4 skins (2 were appliers for Fiore heads) a pair of shoes and some lovely decor and jewelry items.
