omg HUGE NEWS FOR ME: I got accepted as an official blogger for Plastik!
I am a huge geek for Plastik and have been ever since I started out in SL. Vae does wonderful textures and models, gorgeous makeup, awesome skins, etc. There’s always been something fae about her store, and when I picked up some of her new releases I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them.
I’m a big fan of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, and Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness and monarch of the Unseelie–Winter–Court of the Fae is a fairly important character in the books. I recently finished re-reading the newest entry in the series, Skin Game, and Mab once again features in it. So this interpretation of Mab is influenced by Jim Butcher, and uses pieces from Vae’s beautiful Petrichor Druid gacha set at Whimsical. I’ve also picked up the new Lo hair from Little Bones at Uber and the Kat applier from Glam Affair at We ♥ RP to round it out.
You may also notice I’ve been working on my editing techniques! I really wanted to do something special for my first blog post for Plastik, so I decided to challenge myself and see if I couldn’t do something really lovely, and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Thanks to Daeberethwen Arbenlow for all her advice on Plurk ♥

My semester is finally, FINALLY ending, and I couldn’t be more relieved. I’ll have free time to do things I want to do!
I recently downloaded Blender because I kind of want to learn to make my own stuff. I have ideas for things I would love to see in SL, but haven’t been able to find them, so it’s kind of just me dipping a toe in to give it a shot.
Anyway, it’s the holidays and I’m loving a lot of stuff coming out. I went to the Arcade for this super cute new style by Spellbound (great store, btw), then hopped over to Remarkable Oblivion to play their machine from last year.
Let me just say that I think RO is an amazing brand. The creative force behind it is awesome (Thanks Blair and Seb) and their gacha machines have wonderful prizes, with rares at a very reasonable percentage. I got the boots and both pairs of goggles from their Snowboard machine in ten plays. So thank you for being awesome, RO.
I picked up a new skin from Lara Hurley, a brand I’ve always lusted after but never got a skin from. I’m loving this Heidi skin! I went for a darker tone than I normally do–this is Lara’s darkest tone she sells–but it really looks hot on me and I’m very happy with my purchase. I’ll be going back for more once I cave on the mesh head front (her appliers are SO GORGEOUS).
Enjoy your holidays! ♥ See you soon with goodies from the new round of Genre.
