Otherworldly

Lia by Vista

Just in time for the Black Friday/Weekend sales, Vista Animations released their first bento mesh head, Lia. I had heard nothing of it until I saw it mentioned on Plurk and to be honest I wasn’t expecting that much when I went to demo it. I have fairly particular tastes in mesh heads and I have demoed and discarded a large number. But, I was very pleasantly surprised and that, together with the excellent introductory price of L$2000 (20% off the regular price, which is still a great deal), led to one of my fastest mesh head decisions ever. In fact, I was so pleased with the head that I simply had to launch into making a review video for it. It should have been up earlier today, but I had some uploading issues. Fortunately, the sale price is still on at the store right now.

Also featured in this video is a new hair by Wasabi, a new tree by The Little Branch (who just opened up their mainstore) and clothing by Senzafine.

Deco(c)rate Unboxing November 2017

It has been a few months since I last tried a Deco(c)rate, but with November being their 1 year anniversary I decided to treat myself. The preorders also included a MadPea scratch card with chances to win various prizes as an added incentive, but alas, my result was just three empty boxes. Fortunately, my Deco(c)rate was anything but empty and I ended up with a rather lengthy video looking at what each of the 15 designers had made for the theme “Cozy Nights”. It turned out they had gotten very cozy indeed!

Into Another World

With the help of a few pieces from Genre—most notably the amazing Underworld Gate from Anachron—I am preparing myself to step into the Fairelands as the Fantasy Faire 2017 is about to begin. The blogger preview starts today and then the Fairelands opens to everyone tomorrow. I have a few little previews to share with you today and there will be plenty more over the 10 days that the Faire is open.

Bento for Boys

It has been a while since I last did a video, but I finally got around to properly featuring two of the male LightStar heads. I say “two of” since there’s actually a third one out now, that’s how long it took me to get these done. The main reason for the delay? The lack of Omega appliers for male heads. I haven’t really found many (or any, really) that appeal enough that I’ve been ready to buy them (after all, I mostly wear my female shapes), but fortunately I learned that 7 Deadly s{K}ins were having an egg hunt with both male and female skins as prizes and they tend to do all their appliers in the Omega format. So, I set out to do the hunt and came away with a few really nice male Omega appliers that turned out to fit both Apollo and Robin really well.

Baroque Play

I may be entering another decor phase (actually, I am not sure I got out of the last one) which undoubtedly will mean some rearranging on the sim yet again. Today, an in-progress build ended up being exiled into the sky to make room for my latest acquisition from the brand new round of We Love Role-Play. As it happened, it also turned out to be a lovely backdrop for some more new items from the same event plus a belated look at a skin that was released at the Skin Fair.
