52 Weeks of Color – #43 Ghost White

I’m back! I’M BACK! YAY! I finally got this mess of a computer sorted out. That was some long 12 days, let me tell you. If I hadn’t just gotten a brand new tablet I don’t think I would’ve made it.

I have some work to do now if I want to make this 52 colors challenge before the end of the year. So let’s get to it, shall we? Ghost White was week 43 and is… Well, white. So I got this cute looking blouse in the With Love From Hunt, it’s from DCNY. It costs only 10L and you get several colors with it. I spiced up a little bit with a belt from coldLogic that is actually meant for their Gish dress. But no one said you have to do everything by the book, right?

Can I Have Your Number?

I finally bought myself a new phone last night, so this has been me pretty much all day today. When you get a new phone there’s always that period of “teaching” it how to do stuff your way. So I’ve been downloading apps and entering phone numbers and all that stuff. I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally be connected again after a month without a proper phone.

It’s only fitting then that this set of poses from aDORKable Poses is in this years With Love From Hunt. This set contains 10 poses with mirrors and phone included. The hunt starts the 30th of November and each hunt item costs 10L. For those 10L you get a value of at least 400L, so it’s a great deal.

Pose Appreciation Week – aDORKable Poses

I love poser-makers. I spend a healthy chunk of my budget on just poses, but it’s a great investment if you think about how awful the pictures would be without them. I almost always credit the poses I use, the few times I don’t it’s because I’ve forgotten. I thought I’d take this Pose Appreciation Week to highlight some of my absolute favorite pose makers, the ones I keep going back to over and over again.

aDORKable Poses by aDORKable Peapod is one of those brands that have been with me for years and still continue to amaze me. She has a wide range of poses and props for a plethora of different purposes, but my favorite part is her fashion forward single poses. I know that if I TP in to her store to find that perfect pose to show of my outfit, I will always find something.

Last Chance for Cinema

I made it across the Atlantic and I’m currently blogging from a super crappy hotel wifi. But I wanted to remind you that today is the last day of cinema and you have roughly 5 or so hours left before it shuts down. So any last minute things you want to get, you need to go now!

May I suggest this fantastic maxi dress from Zaara? I’m really loving the pattern and color combo on this one and the wrinkles on the bodice is super detailed and realistic. A must-have for sure.

Since I am on crappy wifi I can’t pull up the specific slurls and whatnot, you’ll have to forgive me and make due with names.

It’s Time for Cinema

Finally! I know you’ve been waiting and longing, I can’t blame you. But today Cinema opens it’s doors to the public! A lot fantastic things await you in the incredible venue that holds Cinema. Really, it’s worth a trip just to see the build.

I’m still hooked on the movie posters. I’m loving making up different little stories for them. I blogged a movie poster the other day over at the Hottie Cooterati blog, a chickflick type movie was the intent. Check it out here.

For this poster I was going for a bubblegum superhero from a sci-fi comic. I’m thinking she’s kicking ass all in style, saving the world without even messing up a strand of hair. It also happens to be the first time I’ve ever worn a hair that isn’t red, but for this heroine I just had to go with Alice Project. She has a ton of these insane colors with fade outs, dipped tips and streaks.

I got a close-up as well, because I want you to see these amazing bionic eyes from Insufferable Dastard. They are a Cinema exclusive and come in three colors. I thought it was the perfect finishing touch for my superhero.

52 Weeks of Color – #39 Hunter Green

Yeh yeh yeh, I’m horribly behind. I’m lazy, ok? No, actually I’m busy, but same shit. Anywhore, I got my filthy paws on this crazy looking dress from Valentina E. Couture. It’s exclusive for Cinema and I believe it’s located in the Horror section. I love the crazy flaps, it’s imaginative and fun, like a modern take on the 1920’s flapper dress. And it’s green. As in Hunter Green. Which was the point of this post after all.

Cinema is coming

Like the Festival of Sin before it, Cinema will be an elaborately themed sim-wide event centered around one of our favorite past times… movies!

Starting October 13th, Cinema will bring you into a massive and beautiful, intricately designed multiplex cinema featuring 8 individually themed theaters.  You’ll be immersed in the movie going experience, and in true Hottie Cooterati style, we will have some fun surprises awaiting you. – Hottie Cooterati.

I’m so excited for this event, you have no idea! I’ve had the fortunate luck of being able to preview some of the things that will be available and well… You should go find some lindens now, you’re gonna need it.

I actually got the honor of making two ads for a participating designer; SySy. I thought I’d share the awesomeness, I’m really happy with how they turned out.

This gown called Belle is a gorgeous flowey looking thing that comes in 6 colors. For this poster the inspiration came from romcoms. I wanted the “movie” to be about two guys fighting over this one girl, Belle, in a classic clumsy romcom theme. I really like how it turned out and I hope it conveys what I think it does.

For this poster I wanted the “movie” to be about a a girl who on the surface is a sweet, innocent countrygirl who wouldn’t hurt a fly, but as soon as you scratch the surface, you realize she is quite capable of biting back. Not sure I actually captured that in the poster, but either way I like how it came out.

I <3 Rouge

I’m actually on my way out, but here’s a super quickie. This weekend is the I <3 Rouge event to help save the Rouge sim. The owner Codie is one of the most awesome people I have on my plurk timeline and I feel the least I can do to help out a bit is by shopping awesome stuff. Like this little dress from Sn@tch. It comes in Black and Red and is just vampy like hell. But there’s not just shopping, I hear there’s also partying with some of SL’s best DJ’s. So really, go check it out and drop some L’s.

If you want to find out more about the event check the flickr announcement here or just jump right in and start shopping at Rouge Sim.

Ready

I am so ready for fall to get here. I want to dress in soft sweaters and warm boots. I want to see orange trees and smell that crisp fall air. I want to move. I’m so excited to move I don’t know what to do with myself.

This sweater from Sn@tch is exactly what I’m talking about. It’s soft and warm, in a nice fall color. But she classes it up a bit by attaching a corset to it. Means I can use this sweater even with a pencil skirt. And you all know I love my pencil skirts.
