Bit of Siss Boom

I love that moment when you wander into a store you haven't been into in a while and you look at the new items and just say, "WOW!"  This was definitely the case when I went to -siss boom- yesterday and drooled over all the amazing new mesh items that Lestat has been busy making!  I was in mesh heaven.  For those of you who are mesh-challenged there are still plenty of non-mesh items, so make sure you go take a look.

There is also a new group gift and some amazing items on the Lucky Chair.  I was not lucky that time, but will be returning!

I also noticed today that Lestat has put a whole pile of new items in the -siss boom- outlet store (13 to be exact). These range in price from 50L to 125L with most sitting around the 95L mark.  Hmmm, rent or clothes?...

I Heart Free Stuff

A friend mentioned some awesome mesh boots she got off a lucky board, so I wandered on over to take a looksee.  To have access to the lucky board you do need to join the group, but I didn't mind because there are some very cool items in the store and while I was waiting for the lucky board to be nice to me, I grabbed the group freebies as well.  Yay.  It didn't take long for a random ? to come up and I also scored the boots, which are very cool! So whip to S@BBiA and wait around.  Of course, do shop while you wait!

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Shuttle Gray

I have had a weekend in RL, but had worked out this idea before the weekend so couldn't wait to get going on it.  Then I did something that I knew I shouldn't...I fiddled with my photo studio and stuffed up all the settings.  Thankfully, I had two wonderful people who came to my rescue, so I want to take this time to thank AnneMarit and Kharras for rescuing an idiot!  BIG thanks.

Anyway, problems all sorted, I bring you my colour challenge pics.  The last one was just for fun, cos I decided these pics looked a bit comic-book detective-ish.

I have called this set:

Gangster in Gray





Shirt and Hat:  [SAKIDE] - Spencer Shirt - Gray and Pinstripe Fedora (from Gangster Girl Outfit)
Pants and Gun:  Ho Wear - CapHOne Gun and Pants
Hair:  VC Designs - Micaela Classic Twisted Bun Hair

Strike a Pose

This post is all about the poses and these are some I found at the Pose Fair.  I had so much fun doing these that I got a bit carried away and wanted to show you them all which meant I wanted to learn something on Photoshop to put these together.  I tried for about 2 hours with help from others in SL and online tutorials, then gave up in disgust and went back to Picasa and did it in ten mins.  I think I need lessons in PS...

Poses:  Pulling Strings - Good to the Last Drop (175L)
Outfit:  [SAKIDE] - Emo Teen Outfit (90L - Perfect Wardrobe Item)



Glitterati - Morning Coffee (150L)



{what next} - Portobello Basket Pose Prop (250L)

I have posted some Petite fashions on Arya's Heart, but I thought I would also include the garden items for petites here as well, just in case you are a reader of this blog and not the other!

I am so excited about the Fantasy Faire that I am counting the hours.  I am doing that because this year it is not just about the Big Jobs (big avatars), it is also going to include items for my petite.  So, I can shop for both avatars in the same place!  PERFECT!



One of my fav petite stores, That Chick at KaiAna, has let me give you a sneak preview of some of their new items that will be available at the Faire.  I am so honoured and am also in love with these gorgeous items to make your petite and their environment so amazing.

I can't give you the LM to where these will be at the Fantasy Faire because it hasn't started yet, so be patient!
