Retro-Dollie

This week the Vintage Fair has rolled into town sending the SL community into a vintage fashion-frenzy! Including your favourite dollie, me. Here's my vintage look of the day:



There are four sims full of stores who have all worked really hard creating new items inline with the theme. This dress is a new release from Dilly Dolls, and is an absolute favourite of mine! I totally had to complete the look with accessories from Dilly Dolls and fabulous new VF hair from ploom. The amazing earrings are from bellballs, and are their item for Project Themeory this weekend, so adorable!!

Info:

Skin:
Dilly Dolls ~ Lillie - Laida (old skin),
Hair: ploom ~ mimi (new release, only available at Vintage Fair),
Dress: Dilly Dolls ~ Delilah (new release, only available at the Vintage Fair),
Shoes: Dilly Dolls ~ Judy Cherry Heels (new release, only available at Vintage Fair),
Mouth cherries: Dilly Dolls (colour-change, Vintage fair freebie!!!),
Tattoo: Para Designs,
Earrings: bellballs (L$75 for Project Themeory).

Please be patient trying to get into the VF, it is a very popular event. It took me numerous attempts yesterday to get in, and when I finally did get in I could hardly move anywhere! Please do be considerate and remove any prims/ scripts you might be wearing to ease the lag for everyone!

Its insanity!!

haha yeah I know, my titles suck, lol. Oh well, least what I have to show you is good :) So its Friday, which means comfy casuals for me. Here I'm wearing Sakides' shredded leggings and bloody perv dress/ top, which are currently available on their Midnight Manias, if you can lock them down :) It's difficult to see from my photo, but the dress/ top has bloody handprints over the bewbs, hehe. I have accessorised this urban look with the beautiful 'The Oracle' choker from Virtual/Insanity. The Heavy Cross belt and Heavy Cross rings are also from VI.



The template debate rages once again elsewhere on the web. For what its' worth, my opinion is this; 1) everyone has to start somewhere, and 2) not everyone is skilled in sculpt making/ manipulation, and 3) others simply don't have the time to fully prepare each item they sell from scratch, so they use sculpt maps. In my opinion, that's what sculpt templates are there for, for designers to use them as a BASE to their own creations, then add to it with their own textures/ ideas to make it their OWN. This is what Loviathar Hellman has done with this choker. Yes, the necklace and the ankh are both sculpt maps, but she has retextured this herself and added her own lil sculpted gems onto the necklace to make this an original idea. If designers stopped using such templates, creativity, and therefore productivity would fall dramatically, as would sales and the SL economy would be even worse than it is now.

Peace dolls!

Halloween is over, which makes me a sad panda :( However there are still awesome things in SL I need to show you!! Like this amazing 'Bloody Amethyst' dress from Blue Blood, and 'Bloody stitched skin' to match it. The dress comes complete with blood stains, and so the skin would be remiss if it did not have stitches ad scars all over it! Simploy perfect for all your zombie-horror role-playing needs!! And still available at the store for an amazing L$100 for the skin and L$150 for the dress! Thats full of win for me! Hearse to Blue Blood here.

Tainted kisses and demented dreams!!

OK, I'll be honest, I couldn't think of a name for this piece today, lol. Ah well, I still haz some cute goodies for ya!!



This beautiful sheer dress is by deviant girls and was available in a mini-pumpkin hunt over on the Voc Linda sim. I apologise if it's no longer available :( however this is a really cute store with reasonable prices and two lucky boards you should totally check out :)

The skin is a Halloween dollarbie gift from Lara Hurley Skins, and was still available for L$1 at the time of posting, however I dunno how much longer it will be available for!. Here's a close-up of the skin:



The upside-down cross choker/ necklace is a new release from [Virtual/Insanity], which I think looks absolutely adorable with this dress, and can easily be mix and matched with any outfit!
