52 Weeks of Color- Wales

 

 

Green is such a complex color. It’s a color of nature, the color of greed, and the color of envy.  It’s also the color of Sailor Jupiter!

SHAZZAM!

 

So throw on some green, shoot a few lightning bolts and play up your strong girl Makoto side this week ❤

White Sands

While reading JuicyBomb’s blog, Gogo gave us a link to Ziki’s blog all about the time sensitive setup on the Talamasca sim. It is a gorgeous sim with a very beachy theme and adorable structures and decks.  As of now, you can even rez objects there- which really helped out with posing problems!

I gobbled up the Fifty Linden Friday goodies as soon as I got the notice, and this Lily pin from LaGyo and mesh dress from Tulip really compliment each other. I thought they both blended in well with the sweeping sands in Talamasca.

I also finally got the slink mesh feet. I love them too much but I find difficulty matching the skin tones.

Here are a couple snapshots of some of the architecture and landscape you can find on the sim. I would definitely recommend checking it out before they close it down.

500L Challenge #1

I love this blogger challenge! It forced me to search around and find hidden gems and really perked my interest in gachas.  The blogger challenge pool is available here, in case anyone is interested in joining us!

For my first attempt, I relied heavily on quality group gifts. These pants from Slink are a free group gift, they’re mesh AND it includes a HUD to change the colors between light, medium, and dark. I’m currently wearing the dark color.

If you haven’t seen already, I really love Bilo’s creations! The June/July group gift is the Nasreen skin in Pixie. It’s a bit different from the actual skin that I own because of the doll like eyelashes on the skin. I tossed makeup on this skin to show how you can truly customize a “cheap,” look for this challenge.

Leverocci is having a major sale on all of their items (except for the shoes I think), at their new location. The hair came at a great deal so I snatched it up. It worked perfectly with this sculpted hat from Ribbon.


I’m making the effort to provide slurls to the locations  for all of these items so people can truly benefit from this challenge. I actually purchased everything in world, but some items are available on the marketplace, so I’ll link those stores in those cases. ❤

LOTD#6 “I Tested the Water for You”

The Cupcakes sim is holding their bake sale, and after I checked out the goodies I perused the nearby stores. I found some lovely flexi and sculpted gems on sale anywhere from 10-50L.

I decided to photograph this on one of my favorite scenic sims in Second Life, Casablance Bay. It seems to be a virtual “country club,” with several sim builders all decorating the landscape with Mediterranean inspired architecture and warm plant life.

 
I am obsessed with flip flops and flats in RL as well as SL, so I was super giddy over Ingenue’s half off sale. I only wish I had stocked up on more of her shoes while the sale was ongoing.

LOTD# 5 “Odile”

Geometry is one of my favorite clothing stores for mesh, and this new release is no exception to the beautiful work that the creator consistently releases. I just love this texture and how the lace appears to be layered.

This is my first time using Tillie’s pose stand as well. I must say,  it’s very easy to use and gives you a lot of options. It also has some built in poses that are really nice. The poses I’m using are the included one’s.

LOTD # 3

U.F.O. is an adorable Korean (I believe), owned shop.  Happily, they’re a regular contributor to Collabor88, so you can run off with monthly steals of super cute dresses and accessories from them.

The only drawback to this dress is that it seems to be modeled on a smaller than “average,” body shape, so the breasts are very small in every size. But the overall design is so adorable that the smaller chest really doesn’t matter much.

 

You may have noticed that I’m blogging the Bilo skin quite a bit. I really love it! I’ll definitely be doing a full skin review of it in the future.

These images were shot on the Pivaaca sim. Check it out, it’s gorgeous!
