Adventures in explorations

My adventure is actually exploring the many background pictures I have collected over the years when I went sim exploring. Some of the sims are no longer there, some have changed. It's only recently when I started blogging clothes actively that I started collecting a different kind of background, one where I could pose Moon in the middle and make it look as if she were there.

This was Lost World.... gone.
Moon is wearing a complete outfit, boots included, called ***GIULIADESIGN***MONA BLACK from GiuliaDesign for the Cosmopolitan Sale Room. The top is actually netted and revealing. Moon has on the corset from Lilly Black Satin Outfit by INSOLENCE Lingerie. The outfit is partial mesh. The pistols are [Black Ops] USP v1.3 from my old roleplaying days.

This is from Solaria. I haven't been there in a while. It's still there, but I'm not sure if it still looks the same as this background picture.
Another complete outfit, shoes included, from GiuliaDesign called ***GIULIADESIGN***JASMINE ORANGE. Moon looks totally like a tourist I think.

This background picture was taken inside one of the houses in one of Calas Galadhon sims.
Moon is ready for dinner, wearing another one of GiuliaDesign called ***GIULIADESIGN***KATTY. It is also partial mesh. The top is quite sheer and the flexi collar ruffles plays peek-a-boo.

You can get all these clothings at this round of Cosmopolitan Sale Room. Happy Shopping!

To work and play

Skins at Cosmopolitan Sale Room

I've never done a skin preview before. I don't know how. Pictures will tell you better than my words ever could. I couldn't resist the skins at this round of Cosmopolitan Sale Room.
I have not edited the pictures. I've only used windlight Nam's optimal skin 2 and cropped the pictures.
I have also not used any make-ups, blushers, lipsticks, moles etc except Maitreya's VIP groupgift eyelashes.
I've not changed Moon's face.
Moon is wearing Darling Nicky - LINGERIE by ZEITGEIST incl. Jewlery which are available at the Cosmopolitan Sale Room for these pictures.
These are from [Chloe], making Moon look so young.  Aisha, Anna, Alessandra, Carol, Isa. A bargain at 55L a skin. Unfortunately there is no demo.

These are from Dulce Secret. They more mature. Champagne, Reisling, Sangria, Whiskey. 70L for each skin and demo is available.

Rocking at the beach

Round 25 of Cosmopolitan Sale Room is here!

I mixed and match items from 3 different designers from this round. I know in  rl it would be impossible to walk on the sand with those spikes, but it reminded me of a Rachel Zoe episode I saw when she had to be carried down to the beach coz she was wearing spiky boots. Fashion doesn't care about sensibilities.
Anyway, this is SL and if Moon can fly, she can darn well wear heels to the beach in skimpy clothings in winter!

jacket: Look*Me  Jacket Liss 5 Sizes(comes with a 6-coloured hud  for the jacket and 2 colours for the spikes) 120L @ CSR
shorts: Lumiere Rocking Shorts Dirt @ CSR
boots: *Siria's Design* Cool Boots Grey 50L @ CSR

other items on Moon:
hair: ^;^CaTwA^;^ Mesh Julianna Hair [1]
skin: Glance Anais August
top: Kyoot - Brown Bikini Tank Set
eyes: Keshie Group Gift (Luminous - Mesh Eyes - Dark Olive)
necklaces: MG necklace Summer Ladybird white(from past gatcha)

I also went to the Black Event Sale and Hunt. The hunt is fairly easy and the items are free. I have no idea when I would open the boxes, but I was quiet captivated by two 10L items from Kirei, a store I have not heard of before. Pictures help. Above is called [Kirei] Cheongsam. The hair Moon is wearing is called *Plume* Jeux d'enfants - Soil/Umber, an old item. I'm not sure if it's still available, but I love the chopsticks in the buns. The white shoes are from GOS at shoetopia called Dita. I love white shoes and this wedges is almost like the ones I have rl.

The second item from Kirei is called [Kirei]  Black Gown. It's not really a gown, but a mini sweater dress. I think it's adorable.

Sometimes I like to pretend that Moon is a trust fund baby and dress her up like a rich girl or how I perceived a rich girl would wear. And this is it. The hair is [LeLutka]-ALICE hair/Naturals. The bag is Fleshtone :: The Huntington Bag White. The shoes are  N-core SHAE "White" (Mesh).

I hope you've had a good weekend!

Colours for cold days

I am still loving the colours of Autumn.

Belleza has a skin called Molly for FLF. Moon is wearing it in her shape(or same face I should say) while I changed the face for Carter. They're both wearing Mayfly luminous eyes and I have to say, these eyes are just amazing.  Also, LavandaChic has another group gift out and I really love the colour and youthfulness of their style. Perfect for Carter.

Exploring Monti Carlo Resort & Gaming

Today's post has nothing to do with dresses.

Yesterday, between taking pictures for the previous post, my long time friend Sergio invited me to his sim. It wasn't the first time, but this time, I made an effort to go because you know, it's not good to always say you're busy even if you are. Sometimes, you just have to drop whatever it is you're doing and go look at what your friends are up to and not just hear them talk about it.

Sergio has had his sim for a while now and he's a also a builder like myself. Although he doesn't upload his builds onto the marketplace or sell them anywhere else. He just builds for his sim.

He's turned his land into a residential/commercial sim.

Of course I took pictures!

The Vineyard with grape picking animations.

I totally feel like a tourist!

Stomping the grapes! Ok, I should have taken off the boots but this is not rl so what the heck:) It does make me wonder if the wine's tastiness has anything to do with that fungi in blue cheese that is also connected to smelly foot. Can I say eeew and yummy at the same time?

Sergio has the green thumb. He's potting around.

The Music Venue.

The Mall. There are some freebies here for men and women. I didn't have the time to look.

The Casino. There's also the Greedy table where you can play.

The Public Beach. Will you look at the waves!

Sergio said the boardwalk and the beach reminded him of Atlantic City.

All I can think of is, this would be a great place for me to take pics for my blogging! Or yours too!

Here's the LM to Monti Carlo Resort & Gaming. Take the bicycle and explore the sim.

From the City to the Sea

Today will be my first post blogging for JK Styles. I'm always excited to dress up Moon or Carter or both of them together and I always feel honoured being asked to blog for designers or events. It must mean that I am doing something right.
I take these assignments very seriously. It's not about getting free stuffs. I have enough lindens to buy the things I want in SL. It's about being appreciated, but mostly, it's about me getting to do what I like and that is dressing up my avatars.
City people love their black outfits, don't they? Black is always in style and when the weather turns colder, s the colour of everyone's clothings turns dark. JK Style has this chic outfit for 55L Thursday. The crop sweater comes with a 6-coloured hud. I chose black because I am a city girl. There is also 2 choices for the system jeans, black and blue. A very good deal indeed.
I've also been looking for high knees boots for a while now and I finally chose Redgrave's LQMesh Overknees Boots KIM. I feel I can dress them up and down but the best part is, they have many colour options on a hud for the price of 690L.

hair: Eaters Coma - HAIR 29 / NOIR
skin: Glance Anais August
outfit: ::JK Style:: Naomi 55L Thursday
necklace: Pure Poison - Lumia Necklace 55L Thursday
bag: [STELLA]Crocodile/black/shoulder&hand bag set(old item)
boots: ! LQMesh Overknees Boots KIM

Another 55L Thursday from JK Style called Michelle is light and breezy. Now that Moon has gone shopping in the City, it was time to go back to her beach. This city girl loves her water. Her neighbours are great at building up the land and here is a view of Grumphmunch from Schilli.
I can imagine feeling the wind in Moon's hair as she stands there posing on the dock of the lighthouse in Schilli with the yacht club behind her. This dress comes with a 6-coloured hud, 3 stripes and 3 squares patterns. I chose the blue to match with the freebie Mayfly eyes and the sky.

Hair: [ 69 ] DIVA - Noir Collection
eyes: Mayfly - Luminous - Mesh Eyes (London Fog, free color)
necklace: Pure Poison - Lumia Necklace 55L Thursday
earrings: MG - Earrings - 60's Gogo Disks - BW
bangles+ring: part of ::JK Style:: Michelle
dress: ::JK Style:: Michelle 55L Thursday
shoes: [Gos] Bordello - Dita - White currently available at Shoetopia

My Virtual Girls

One of my favorite thing to do is to dress-up Moon and Carter in identical clothes. Strangely, this is not what I did when my own daughters were little.
on Carter:
hair: Analog Dog freeball AD - libra -splash
eyes: Mayfly - Liquid Light Eyes (Bronze)
skin: :[ Al Vulo! ] - [ Astrea ] - [ 60's chic Fairy TDR]
dress: :::Sn@tch Mesh Bev Mini Dress-All Colors (XSmall):::
bag: (TokiD) Bee Bag (TDR) (past item)
bangles: <X> Autumn Heather Bangles(very old)
boots:*GF*[Mesh] Long Cuff Boots "Will" -sepia-
shape: April(tentative)
pose: Di's Opera

on Moon:
hair: Eaters Coma - HAIR 41 / NOIR
eyes: Mayfly - Deep Sky Eyes (Midnight Hazel)
skin: Glance Anais August
dress: :::Sn@tch Mesh Bev Mini Dress-All Colors (XSmall):::
jewellery: DM Pearl Drops(old item)
boots: [monso] My Combat Ankle Boots - Silver
pose: Purple Poses

Picmonkey is really fun to play around with.

relaxing by the sea

Cosmopolitan Sale Room Round 24 is almost over. I was hanging out at the beach and I remembered this outfit from JK Style. So casual and comfy.

hair: AD - libra - dark browns
skin: Glance Anais August
outfit: ::JK Style:: Gilyan (C) @ CSR
shoes: *GF*[Mesh] Deck Shoes -beige-

I took the boat to Bull Rock sim. A few years ago I used to live on one of the little islands for a several months. I didn't know how to build back then and there weren't any houses that were less than 20 land impact. There wasn't any such thing as land impact either.
Here is how Bull Rock looks today.

And that's one of my popular beachcomber's cabins on the left. I love it when I see my houses.
