An Apocalyptic Tale

Good day everyone, today's presentation is brought to you by my love of the Apocalyptic tales. Which are mysteriously lacking during the holiday setting. So when I was wandering through sims today and came across the grunge setting at Zen creation I couldn't resist snapping a few shots. The burning car was just too good to resist.


My outfit of choice for the apocalypse is perhaps not the most appropriate for survival but boy do I look good. My ensemble is a combination of designs you can find by Entice. I am wearing their Firework Dress with tights (included), Don't Forget Heels, and Everytime Arm Warmers. The dress and arm warmers are colorchangable via hud. The shoes are to be worn with Slink High Feet. My necklace is the Athena's Collar by Maxi Gossamer. The necklace has a choice of 10 color combinations via the texture changer and is non-rigged mesh, so it can be moved or adjusted if needed. 


My skin is Jenna 01H by Style by KIRA. It is one of the many tones of the Jenna skin you can pick up at the Flawless: Gingerbread Block Party. Appliers are also available so that you can match your Slink hands and feet. My shape is by External Appearance Shapes, called Zalia. It is also at the Ginger Bread Block Party. Look for a cup of cocoa. My soulful eyes are Hope:field by IKON. My Andi hair by ploom for their Annual 12 Days of Christmas Event.

Swanky Season Sweaters

Good Evening Everyone, tonight's presentation is celebrating all those wonderfully holiday outfits that feature fun sweaters. I always get a dozen or more sweaters for Christmas, some funny, some funky and some I just wonder what they were thinking. But what would Christmas be with out our sweaters.


The first outfit is a combination of items from two of my most favorite stores, HUDSON's Clothing Co.  and Somnia. Both stores have a ton of awesome designs in a ton of styles. For the holidays HUDSON's Clothing Co. created  the "Ugly Xmas Sweater with boots". The sweater comes with a color change hud for three colors. I really liked the flashing Christmas bulbs and the color textures on the shoes. HUDSON's Clothing Co. also made the furry gloves, scarf and hat set. They looked so warm and the texture was rich. You can get them in several colors.

I paired the sweater up with Somnia's Calais pants. These pants also come with an optional belt. You can see it in the third photo below. Somnia also has a washing machine you can ride around the shop! Yeah, I love that machine, brings back memories of being a noob and when I needed a smile I would go ride the machine cause it looks so silly. My Christmas wreath pose is from ploom. It is part of their Annual 12 Days of Christmas Event. For this event, each day, they release one hairstyle and one pose pack, marked down 50% off the regular price for the duration of the event. The Jolly Pose is for Day 3.


My second outfit is a creation by dirty.little.secret  for the  Twisted Krissmuss. The Rudolph antlers are can be found under the christmas tree for free. And don't forget to check out the Advent, it tree has 12 brass bells hanging from it, one for each day of advent. Each day, a bell will be set for sale for 0L. For that day only, you can buy the advent item for free. After that day is done, you will be able to buy older items for 2L, so it pays to come check out the tree every day through the 24th. My hair and pose is by ploom for their Annual 12 Days of Christmas Event. You can find the Demi hair on the Day 1 slot and the Gift Wrapped Set  on Day 2 of the poses.


My third outfit features a Green Christmas Sweater by CroM. The sweater comes with hud with three textures. The sweater is part of their Christmas hunt. There are four gifts available in the store.My shoes and antlers are by Phunk for the Flawless: Gingerbread Block Party. You can pick them up until Jan 2. I paired the sweater up with Somnia's Calais pants, this time in green. The pants come with a color change hud with 8 textures. I also am wearing the optional belt.  The belt has a 25 color change hud. This makes it perfect for all outfit color combinations.  My Last Minute Pose Set is from ploom poses.


My fourth outfit is the Snowman Sweater set from Paris Metro Couture. The outfit consists of the sweater, pants and boots. This is but one of many wonderful sweater sets available at their main store on the second floor. Be sure to hop up and check them out. My poses are by THR33 Poses & Shapes  and  Captivity Co. Poses.


My final outfit features Phunk's Ugly Christmas Sweater and their Christmas Sneakers for thFlawless: Gingerbread Block Party.  The pants are Somnia's Calais pants, 100% mesh and color change hud. My great Ear Muffs in Green are by Lunasea Fashion. The Ear Muffs are at the Merry Crisis Gacha Fair, which runs till January 3. My pose is part of the  Oh Deer Chalkboard Pose Set by What Next.


My skin is a beautiful release by Style by KIRA called Jenna. I am wearing 01D version. It is one of the many tones of the Jenna skin you can pick up at the Flawless: Gingerbread Block Party. Appliers are also available so that you can match your Slink hands and feet. My shape is by External Appearance Shapes, called Zalia. It is also at the Ginger Bread Block Party. Look for a cup of cocoa. My eyes are the Field shade from IKONs newest line called Hope. To frame the eyes and make them so lush looking I am wearing Lashes #22 by Tameless. My hair is a newer release by Tameless called Gizella. It is available in three color packs, natural, fades and fantasy.

Up on the Chimney Top...


Good Evening All, Tonight's presentation is brought to you by a pretty new skin I found haunting the Flawless Sim. Currently Flawless is holding its Gingerbread Block Party. Designers from all over the grid are offering an exclusive item for 50l and hunt items from 0-10l. The sale is taking place till January 2nd. *

My skin is a beautiful release by Style by Kira called Jenna. I am wearing 01B version. It is the exclusive skin for The Gingerbread Block Party. If you like this skin, you can pick up a version of it each day for between 0-25l but only for 24 hours then the price goes up. Also do not forget to find the Mug of Cocoa. It's only 10l. This is a great way for those with a tight wallet to get an amazing look. Appliers are also available so that you can match your Slink hands and feet.


I am really excited about my hair. I have been looking at Pollen Hair for a while now trying to make up my mind on what style I wanted to try first. I finally chose Maggie. It is so lovely. I love the way it flips up on the ends. Maggie is a rigged mesh so you can not move, rotate or position it, once you are wearing it.The colors is so rich. The pack includes 30 Natural Colors with five separate Huds 

My lovely shape is by External Appearance Shapes. It is called Zalia. It is the External Appearance Shapes hunt item for  the Gingerbread Block Party. Look for the Mug of Cocoa. Those beautiful  eyes are by IKON, They come in five sizes and are available in over 50 color shades. The eyes I am wearing tonight are the Field shade from their newest line called Hope. To frame the eyes and make them so lush looking I am wearing Lashes #22 by Tameless.


I had a very good shopping day, so good I couldn't help but slip into my new comfy Christmas Outfit by VIPs Creations. It comes with a sweater and jeans. The sweater has four textures you can change via a hud. But the thing I am most tickled with are my reindeer slippers by Phunk. They were perfect to wear with my Slink Flat feet. So cute I don't think I am taking them off till they fall apart or Mel makes me take them off.


My home decor is a pleasant mix of holiday decor by CIRCA Living, Heart Homes, Lantian Flox, and Serenity Style. Circa Living created the "Winter Grove" Poinsettia Wreath, "Jolly Winter" Floor Pillow and the "Holly Days" Gingerbread Cookie Plate for their Advent Calendar. Advent items are on sale for a couple days for those like me who forget to get the goodies the day they are opened. The lovely Jingle Wood sign is a wonderful free gift available in the common area at Serenity Style. All the stores on Serenity Style's sim have made a special Christmas gift for their stores. So be sure to wander around and find yourself some free goodies. 


The fire place is a fun Christmas item by Heart Homes. It contains an animated Santa. When you click the stocking Santa comes down and pulls out his bag, makes a show of giving gifts then he squeezes up the chimney once more. 


The innocent looking Christmas tree by Lantian Flox is actually a Man-Eating Christmas tree that tries to swallow you whole and spews forth flaming fire balls. It was hilariously fun. If you want to have a fun moment with your friends get this tree. The Christmas Tree Skirt is by Izzie's. You can find under the Christmas tree near the entrance of Izzie’s main store two Christmas Gifts, the texture change Christmas Tree Skirt  and a texture change Reindeer Necklace.

The Perfect Holiday Look...

Good Evening Everyone, Tonight's presentation is brought to you by the Holiday Season. I have been asked by several where to find a outfit for a Holiday Event. So I dug through the stuff I have picked up along the way and found several great outfits to share. I have sultry and elegant to slinky and short, I am sure you can find something you will want too.


Before I get started on the outfits I do what to share my avatar componets that I feel really made the photos. The crowning piece is the darling Santa Hat Hair called Anneke by Tameless. It comes in three color packs, naturals, fades and fantasy.  It is available at the 2014 Winter Trend. The glittering Snowflake & Bells Necklace and Earrings are by Glint. My lovely shape is by External Appearance Shapes. It is called Zalia. It is the External Appearance Shapes hunt item for  the Flawless: Gingerbread Block Party going on till Jan 2. Look for a Milkshake. Those beautiful baby blue eyes are by IKON, They come in five sizes and are available in over 50 color shades. The colors and reflective quality in them is akin to staring into the soul. The eyes I am wearing tonight are the Paradise shade from their newest line called Hope. My skin is by Tir na n'Og called Brooke It was available during bodyFANATIK  Round 2 . Tir na n'Og skins come with a wide range of appliers. Which makes it easy to match my skin to my Slink Casual Mesh Hands. 


The first outfit I am sharing is by CroM called Treisy. This dress is a gift from their Christmas Hunt. I paired the dress with Jane heels from Vivace.The heels are to be worn with Slink high heels. You can pick these up at Feeb's Rascals St. Sales Room till Jan 01.


My second outfit are for those who are looking for a more traditional Holiday outfit. It is the Frosty Outfit by Tameless available at The Winter Trend SL 2014 Event.


My third outfit is Jolly by Roxy. It was actually quite fun to put together as it is part of a Gacha at the Promenade. It's available until December 21. There are sixteen pieces you can get to mix and match an amazing gown. Four corset colors, six long skirts and four mini skirts, so you can have a slinky outfit to go to the club in after the ball.


My fourth outfit is  the  Xmas Cheer Outfit by Tameless available at The Winter Trend SL 2014 Event. It's a lovely sultry short outfit for those who wish to be a bit naughty this holiday.


My final outfit tonight is an exotic design by VIPs Creations. It is an elegant way to celebrate the holidays at the more formal affairs.


And before I go for the evening, I wanted to give a quick call out to CIRCA Living for creating a wonderful mix of holiday home items for this holiday season. They have a wide assortment of food goodies to share too. 

Most of the items seen here are parts of hunts or their Christmas Advent Calendar. You can get some awesome stuff at an awesome price. See the shopping list  below for details on all the individual pieces and where you can find them.

Day 3: The [UN]Happy Holidays Celebration @ Unrepentant

I bet you thought I forgot  the [UN]Happy Holidays Celebration at Unrepentant yesterday. I also bet you thought I did not pick up the super secret surprise pieces for DAY 3. I bet you thought I failed in my quest to build the perfect [UN]Happyville, also known as on better days as "The Town of Happy".

But I had not forgotten! The pieces were just not placed out before I fell asleep last night. I remembered quite a few times to check, I hopped over there so much I bet Mieville Kipling Sim (Home to Unrepentant) traffic count skyrocketed just from me! Well, perhaps I did not hop over more than once every-other-hour but I tried. That is what counts, right? 

The delay was okay -- it built the suspense and excitement of what Day 3's pieces would be. So once I woke up and had my morning caffeine I logged in all ready to grab the pieces and tell you all about it but the little sign wouldn't give up the goods! (There was a little technical difficulty with the giver script I think, I don't know what really was wrong.. no one told me so I am taking the liberty to make up a plausible reason for what was wrong, just assuming...I can assume..but we know what assuming does.. and look I am off on a tangent again! So... let's just say the darn thing wanted me to be as miserable as the town folks and would not give it to me!)

So before I go on too far I will explain a bit more of what  the [UN]Happy Holidays Celebration at Unrepentant is all about. Each day at Unrepentant from the 13th until the 26th of December you can collect a new piece of the town of Happy and their worst Christmas ever entirely for free - then for five days until New Year's Eve you'll have a chance to get the ones you might have missed in a free random daily roll!

All pieces except the base for display are no copy, with a limit of one per avatar per day. Old pieces will be available at random once per day once all the parts have been released! So come join us for the first annual [Un]Happy Holidays un-celebration from the 13th to the 31st of December only at Unrepentant!

To set the scene for your village some back ground information was given:
"The town of Happy has always prided itself on its celebration of the holidays with style. But this year everything went wrong. It all started with the town's Christmas tree and a freak lightning storm..."


To get started you need to follow four simple steps:
  1. Join the Unrepentant Group (It's free!)
  2. Confirm the Group is active.
  3. Grab a Snowy Base.
  4. Touch for Today's Present.

So as you see in the picture above my dear unhappy citizens have been busy, very busy. Though, I still suspect that the latest unhappy occurrences in their environment is caused by them. As you can see my townsfolk have been busy building roadways for their home. With a little break to perform a bit of excavation after experiencing some minor earth quakes that caused the land to buckle in many places. So now on Day 3, we have the Cliffs of Insanity! There are already some mumbling about the road shortage and not all townsfolk are on board with the design. I have counseled them to be patient, with time will come improvements to the town  happiness will be restored. Of course, the thought of having to wait caused more scowling and grumbling. Such an ungrateful town I have inherited. I cross my fingers and hope tomorrow comes quickly, so that I can bring a few more pieces to make my little UNHappyvillians frown a little less.

The inventory of my town so far:
Day 1: Snow Base
Day 2: Road Warrior Pack
Day 3: The Cliffs of Insanity Pack

Do not forget to get yours today!
