Back to my Bare Bones: Blog Challenge 2

Im opening another blog challenge! The theme this time is to use accessories in an unusual way. e.g in this post I'm wearing a rib cadge :)

Main Image

I got inspired by the last collection by Katie Eary (Rl designer not SL) Her works really something special so if your into slightly out there menswear i suggest googling her.

The outfit its self would be very dull without there accessories, i love how they can make or break an outfit. (oh god that sounded pretentious. Ok for anyone that thinks i now sound like a knob lets pretend i said " Add sparkly things for visual yumminess")

This rib cadge is great, its off a halloween outfit which i love, I'm looking forward to getting some crazy pieces from costumes for halloween. I should mention the skin, its from the curios at the skin fair which i went a bit mad at. I wont be doing a post simply because i think everyones seen everything by now.

Full Leangth

So for the blog challenge: Create a look thats using accessories in a "different way" I know i haven't been hugely inventive (so i might do another outfit) I also fixed the comment so can people shove links in the comments :)

Running through the city

City Slicking

I just another outfit blog. Im trying to think up a good blog challenge so i might add one up later tonight :P iv got a good one but the images will need a fair bit of work! I think the Eugene sims build i really underrated, when on the hunt for the a good city build a friend reminded me off it. I really love that sim so i couldn't resist building an outfit round it, clean but a tad quirky round the edges.

Less than Three Review

lessthanthree skin review

*Disclaimer* THE ABOVE PHOTO IS PHOTO SHOPPED (the face of the avatar hasn't been touched but a lot of the rest has, however the skin its self has been altered aside from me drawing the ball joints in it. This isn't meant to deceive anyone i just like have a bit of fun with products that i enjoy.

Righto that aside! This is a short skin review on less than threes phoebe skins. The skins are based on Phoebe Cats. I love how smooth the skin is, in fact it reminds me of a doll a lot hence the image. If anyone follows mac collections in RL, the face of this skin reminded me a lot of the promo photos from that.

These skins are a fun addition for anyone who enjoys bright fun makeups and isn't afraid of something slightly whimsical.

I'm with the band


Im with the band bone.

This bunny ears bow just had to be worn two days in a row :P

Fairly simple look, iv fallen in love with anything with garters on recently so this is just in keeping with that obsession. The short reminded me of those vintage band shirt, hence the post name. As ever the first image has been photoshopped and the full length ones are from in-world. Not too much to say on this one!

Im With the badn Full bone.

KA Skins a short review!



I've been hearing a lot about this brand and being that i live in my little SL bubble i was new to there products (yes stop giggling i don't keep up with fashion news as much as i should...) KA designs has a wide variety of faces to choose from and after testing a few i settled for Chaliz. I'd personally say this is a very wearable skins for anyone who's pale. They have such a wide range of faces and tones that its worth checking out even if you don't think this on would be to your taste. I tryed it on a few of my shapes and it seem to go on all of of them also the brows are fairly easy to match to most hair colours (which is and issue i have a lot with skins). So to justify buying yet another fatpack of skins i decided id have to blog about them giving them a purpose other than to look pretty.

The makeups were what really impressed me. While not the biggest selection i felt that they all have a very unique look to them. The colours really popped without being too in your face, There all very soft looking so you can wear the bolder colours without getting the "in drag" effect.

No excuse my lazy editing on these pics, i couldn't sleep (as ever) and 5am blogging doesn't go hand in hand with photoshop mad skilz.

I thought i should add in a bit of an outfit to the skins as well, i picked the rabbit bow head piece for a starting point. I like this SL rendition of the Louis Vuitton inspired piece from Church of Lux, I'm hoping there might be more pastel shade release (hint, hint hint)

It also felt like a good chance to used this HUGE pink cup, because lets face it, who does want to sit on a giant cup. I think for future blogs i might start trying to build small sets and including more furniture pieces along with the outfits.

KA CLose Up Set One

Skins one through 7 are all of the makeup options for Charlize

KA Skins Set Two

All in All i would say ive found a new love in these skins and look forward to wearing them for more photos and blogs to come! There very reasonably priced and i cant actually think of a negative thing to say on them so two thumbs up :)

Black as my Heart

Ok, i promise for the next post i will leave my skybox and stop being such a hermit!

I also have a mini confession, the makeup in the close up picture is photoshopped on, but the full length pictures isn't retouched. I know its a bit naughty but it looks so cool with black lips! (hint hint hint)

Originally i had planned this bright cheery look masses of colour and bam, I'm in black. I guess it makes sense, I'm colour co-ordinating to my heart.

Black as my Heart Face

Im completely obsessed with should pads atm in SL and RL Im hoping this fall season a lot more designer will come out with bigger and weirder shoulder shapes. They make the avatar look so unbalanced i love it.

ispy- Blog Challenge!

Last night in a rather mad shopping spree i was given the idea to have a blog challenge by abra (ty!). We were talking about how ridiculously clumsy and unsubtle i am and i decided i would make the worlds worst spy. How ever dressing up as one is still fun!

This outfit is a wee bit more bond girl that spy, i want to avoid the trench coat or tweed and pipe look, i never do them justice.


The head shot is a tad Photoshopped but the full length pictures arn't aside from putting the three of them together. The should pads on this jacket are my favorite thing, power is all in shoulder pads. This outfit is actually very simple in terms of layering and colour obviously being in all black. I felt the topic was much more about a silhouette than textures.

ispyfull leangth

So anyone can enter, and the theme is "Ispy" if you send me your blog link in world (Marni Grut) then ill post the link. Also if you don't write for a blog but want to enter feel free to send me the image and i can do a collective blog post for them all!
