Siren Productions Presents The Jewelry & Accessories Expo - 12/5-12/13/2014

Coming Your Way

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Soon at Uber, from BAIASTICE a wickedly ladylike outfit in the best vein of “multi-purpose”. As I was trying this on I was thinking back to bridesmaid’s dresses (the pink probably had something to do with that but there are many dark and mysterious colors to choose from). It was such a thrill when you realized you could actually wear your bridal attire AFTER the event had passed.  

This set has lots of coordinating pieces. There is the lovely low backed and long gown that would be appropriate for most any elegant affair. There is the hat which boasts a secretive lace mask-veil, and there are the gloves — oh my!

A collar with spiky vertebrae is another optional accessory. SO many ways to wear — from sedate to definitely dangerous. Pick your style and mark your calendar.

Dreaming of Summer

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Summer isn’t far behind for those of us in the Northern climes, but already I am remembering those warm breezes wistfully. The good news is that we can have any weather we want in our virtual world!

Just out from Diesel Works a hammock packed full of goodness. Animations for guys, gals and couples as well as a texture change menu for both blanket and pillows. The hammock rocks gently of course — by menu. The netting is individual strands. Well of course it would be, but as I typed this I flashed back to the days before wondrous mesh when we were happy to have a prim and a nice texture. So glad things have changed.

Also new and coordinating, this darling lantern ladder from Cheeky Pea. Find it at The Seasons Story, but hurry — time is short.

Don’t Panic at Pulse

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Weekend fun includes a romp over at Pulse where “Don’t Panic” has been going on for awhile. If you have played the previous Halloween games, you know the drill  — well sort of.

This version is a bit more high tech with voiceovers “from the van” along the way. There are also hints that appear in the chat bar and even a HELP button (so far not used) on your PKE meter.

The rules are pretty simple really. Mesh viewer (well duh!), low or no scripts (check), no huds or facelights (check). Sounds up, music down or off (the parcel stream is just a radio station and not part of the event — unless someone is really, REALLY crafty LOL).

I am tastefully attired in old non-scripted garb. No mesh hands or feet. Minimal outfit (I dressed down) by Paradisis ; hair by Discord Design — which happily worked perfectly with the headset (part of the game).

Read all about the event here.

Keep your eyes open for rats along the way. They hold prizes from several merchants!

Now the game is much maze and definitely non-sequential; both of my adventure game downfalls. So I am not sure if I will finish. But so far I have two three parts of eight things I need. Then of course it is likely that there is more after that. The blog says two hours — well yep maybe if you know where you are going LOL, but I expect to be there much longer. Actually I am just leaving myself there on logout — at least for awhile.

A Vintage Gal

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Vintage — classic and lovely.
Going back in time is one of my favorite pastimes.

Venues abound these days and while gray is the rule at their opening, the shopping experience is much nicer after the crowds have cleared.

From BAIASITCE for The Liaison Coorperative, the Tori dress, a delicately lace trimmed slip dress with plenty of detailing and a rainbow of colors to choose from.

From Vanity Hair for the Vintage & Cool Fair LA Confidential, inspired by the movie of the same name.

From 22769 for L’accessories, Groove in the Heart for Slink Medium and in a variety of colors.

And, if you are looking for a vintage house — also from 22769 ~ [bauwerk], The Manor inspired by the home in the Charmed TV series. Find it at COLLABOR88.

Enchantment

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

From Eclectica, a gorgeous fantasy set that speaks of forest glades and filtered light. The pebbles shine wondrously with material highlights.

This is Enchantment – river pebbles. Stones, leaves and metal cord are all texture change by menu giving you a huge selection of combonations to fit any outfit.

Find it and its companion style Enchantment mountain rocks at the Mystic Realms Faire.

FLF – Timely

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Out for Fifty Linden Friday from {what next} — lots of very happy little pumpkins! The decorative pumpkin set includes crate and you can move things around as your space dictates. The hanging lantern set come with or without string and in some color choices.

Also new at the main store, a falling leaves set (three shapes). I layered some here go give a leaf on top of leaf look. Note this is NOT a texture but individual mesh leaves (1LI at this size). 

There is also a super cute black and white trick or treat version of the pumpkin set out as a new item, so check for that while you are visiting. Who knows which will be your favorite!

Fright Fest

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Something wicked this way comes!

Fright Fest opens today with lots of activities, some great Halloween decorations and even a building contest. 

This top photo is from the !! Follow Us!! area where there are tons of  niche items (Chic dances and bought a new hay mound prop; she SO needed one).

For those of you that love breedables and collectibles, you will find them here. This is the cutest kitty who animates out of a pumpkin.

There are special edition kitties to be had (some very cute, some scary  — oh my).

This is one of the events where you can come home with prizes. Find the pumpkins with the floating text and click. You either get a good prize or a boobie prize. You are invited to return in an hour to try again. The good prizes I won were quite nice.

This is the flying kitty on a broom from KittyCats. Wear it on your shoulder and it circles.

You can see the list of merchants on the AviChoice blog. Type in “Fright Fest” to find the sims.

Longevity

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

I have been feeling quite nostalgic of late. Exploring the hypergrid for the first time, it is much like going back to my SL youth. So many memories; looking for “stuff”, finding said “stuff” and then going through and keeping a few prize things. They were good days back then, and they were fun days too.

banesworth anubis prefabs turns a decade this month and there is a contest going on. You don’t even need to be a classy photographer to win.  I looked through some of my photo and this was my favorite.

If I remember correctly this was his first partially mesh build.

And this is the latest release, a roomy family home — the Bates House. The house comes in at 189 prim impact (mesh), and a 36×26 meter footprint.    Find it at COLLABOR88.

Room Service

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Two more special releases for COLLABOR88; its a great round!

The Baiastice Helsinki Boots are intricately detailed with a gorgeous shine. These come in a variety of winter neutrals and near neutrals — well what IS a neutral anyway?  They are standard sizing and run true.

Now Second Spaces has a whole set of vintage hotel gear with the hutch being super cute. But ya know, sometimes less is more in a photo shoot. Be sure and peruse ALL the items in the “check out at 11″ set. These are wonderful photo props if you don’t happen to be a hotel owner *wink*.

Mystic Realms Faire Highlights

Original post @ Chic at Phil’s Place.

Accessories and props abound at the Mystic Realms Faire.

This butter churn prop set from  Roawenwood gives appropriate items for the animations. Non-animated versions are included in the pack.

This Bird of Prey necklace from lassitude & ennui comes in three cord colors with color change menu for the crystal. Even wenches can be mystical!

If you dabble in the magical arts you won’t want to miss this  Alchemy Experience from Ravenghost. Table, on-off bubbling beakers (yes they bubble nicely!) and extremely intricate book stand and book are indiviual pieces. This is very lovely.

Sway Dench has been a busy gal of late with a plethora of great releases for both main store and venues. This is definitely one of my favorites. Find it at MRF. Not only is it beautifully crafted, it comes with a variety of animations for singles, couples and friends.

Bliensen + MaiTai offers a big collection of dragonfly accessories. The Libelula release includes brooch, hair accessory, necklace and ring — oh, and pasties (one dragonfly, one empty leaf) which are BOUND to come in handy. Don’t miss those. These are attention getters.

My outfit is old and not from the faire; BlueMoon.
