Not everyone knows this, but I’m actually a Spaniard. My mother is from Spain, and I’m a dual citizen and bilingual. I’ve wanted to do a sort of Spanish-themed image for awhile now, and with the release of this lovely hair from Beusy I felt I could finally get something I wanted. I had to combine it with Kaorinette’s beautiful cheek brands, of course!

Btw, if you haven’t gone already, Beusy is offering both of her hairs at N21 for L$375 each for the full fatpack. It’s an incredible deal, so don’t miss out.

“Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and she who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to her, and she went out conquering and to conquer.” 

Revelation 6:1-2

First part of a series. I’ve been working on this for a couple weeks, and I’m happy with how it’s turned out.

This series, and this picture and one other in particular, are dedicated to the awesome Daeberethwen of Honey Junkie, who’s been a great source of inspiration and wisdom for me since I started blogging. Thanks Daebae. ♥

Wheeeeeee.

Wearing a bunch of new stuff in this one! Shoutouts to the lovely Alice of Alice Project for review copies of her hair for HAIR FAIR ’16 (OMG, btw) and Vae, of course, for the beautiful jewelry set she’s done for The Epiphany.

More experimenting with editing my photos. I’m debating if I should get a tablet just to make learning to draw hair and stuff easier. Skipped out on it this time because I got a little intimidated, but I think the end result isn’t too bad.

Woah, Nellie.

It’s been a month since I posted (!!) and boy am I salty about that. Real life decided to finally push Real Life 2: Back with a Vengeance to theaters, so I’ve been handling school, new hours at work, and preparing for the kitchen demolition in my house (redoing it finally!).

However, summer’s basically on its death knell, and the new round of Collabor88 with its Muted Coven theme is like water after a long run. Like many of my fellow bloggers and SL residents, I live for fall, and love the dark, Halloween-y themed stuff we’re going to be seeing for the next month or two. C88 was actually an insane treasure trove of new releases and I couldn’t just pick one thing to show off. My GetMeIn HUD went through quite a workout, let me tell you.

So, where to begin? Maybe with the wonderful new hair from Little Bones? (What, me relentlessly stanning for Little Bones?) This one’s called Spectre, which happens to be the name of one of my favorite Dota 2 heroes, and I love the sleek, refined look of this hair. It comes with and without the hat, but since everyone and their mother’s been channeling the AHS Coven look, I figured I would too.

The collar is from Baiastice and goes with their Bia dress, which I also purchased, but is a really lovely stand-alone piece. I really love crows and ravens and other corvids, so these feathers were just perfect. The cute pentagram necklace from Yummy looks like it was made to fit right over it.

Loving this top from Pixicat–as far as I’m concerned, Pixicat does no wrong; I can think of maybe ONE release they’ve had recently that I didn’t immediately salivate over. While the Tee*fy skirt I’m wearing here has its own top (and the Pixicat top its own skirt) I liked the pairing of the two together, finishing with the kickass ankle boots from fri.day, a brand I’ve loved 5eva. Both Pixicat and Tee*fy have killed it with their Maitreya fits, and fri.day has likewise offered all of her new releases for the Maitreya feet, making it a snap to wear everything right away.

Finally, these new scars from Izzie’s at The Dressing Room Fusion have become my latest obsession and I’ve layered them all on with gusto. Coming in multiple different skin tones with a huge variety of options to mix and match, they further reaffirmed my adoration of Izzie’s, and are definitely worth a pickup if you like that kinda look.

Now taking applications for membership in the Bitches of Eastwick. 😉

Well, friends, today is going to be my last post for a few weeks, as I’m off to Spain to visit my family for a nice, much-needed vacation. I’ve been scrambling to pick up all the goodies I wanted from events happening right now, and for the most part I’ve gotten what I wanted. Since I’ll be back August 10th, I’m holding off on some events so I don’t bankrupt myself spending–which is totally possible, ’cause I have zero impulse control when it comes to the glorious creations that SL’s residents make.

Not wearing a lot that’s really new for this, sadly, but I DID go back to pick up the rest of Little Bones’ hair releases at Hair Fair. I loooooooooooove ponytails and braids, and will generally fork over money immediately for them if I see one that’s well-made. Considering that Little Bones was behind this wonderful tail, it was inevitable that I’d buy it. It’s a style called Lemonade and it’s as beautiful as all of Nova’s designs, gorgeously textured and modeled. As with all of LB’s hair it comes in two sizes with options for larger breasts on each.

Fishy Strawberry, a brand I’ve enjoyed since early on in SL (circa 2009 or so), recently announced a huge sale. TOTALLY worth! I really liked this sweatshirt, which comes with a HUD for various text options (or blank if you prefer), and will be going back at some point to buy more stuff, even if it’s not part of the sale. Definitely worth a trip over; I included a link in the credits. It’s 50% off, up to 70% on some items, and includes the main store and outlet. It’ll be on til midnight of July 21st, so hurry over.

My shoes are from the most recent round of Collabor88, which is one of my favorite SL events. The newest theme was Under the Sea, and fri.day, another brand I’ve patronized since my early days in Second Life, put out these cute platform heels with straps reminiscent of tentacles. I own a bunch of fri.day shoes and would have to say they’re my go-to shoe store. This pair is only available for Slink high feet, but I can’t complain–they look awesome.

You can see a hint of the amazing rare tattoo available from antielle at the new gacha event The Epiphany, but I’m going to save a full post for it later, since it and the other offerings Kaorinette has in that gacha deserve my full attention. 😀

Finally, my earrings are a WONDERFUL new offering by Aikea Rieko of the Plastik, out now at underworld-themed Genre. THEY ARE SNAKES. SNAKES! Available for 100L each, they come in ten different colors, three different wear sizes, and include a HUD with thirty different colors for the snakes’ gemstone eyes. I haven’t taken them off since I got them, and don’t plan to take them off anytime soon. To top it all off, Aikea just announced Plastik’s annual summer sale, with huge discounts available throughout the whole store. Find the details here and then get over there to shop!

With that said, I bid you adieu, and JD will resume posts once I return to the US. Enjoy your summer and thanks for reading! ♥
