Kimono

Kimono

The kimono from the Zenith is adorable! Zenith always surprises me with their creativity and ability to create for multiple genres. In addition to casual clothing, sometimes they release these wonderful traditional outfits, including matching accessories. I went to The Epiphany this morning and played just enough times to get the kimono, so I don’t have all the accessories for this outfit, but it’s still amazing! This is my first outfit from Zenith with built-in hands, which I think is neat if I had all the accessories cos they’re meant to go with them. Even if I had the accessories, I’ve noticed that they’re tiny baby hands!

If you want these items, check the Marketplace, I’ve already seen some items listed on there at pull price. I had an interesting experience this morning at The Epiphany. Since it’s opening day, the lag was especially bad. I played 2 machines that took my money and didn’t deliver anything. Then, I won this Rare Analog Dog hair but it was missing the color HUD. There was a free Analog Dog hair pack at the event, so I bought it and saw that it had all the color HUDs, so I tried the Dark Brown one and it worked on my hair. Yay!

I’m not a huge fan of gacha, but I like going for the experience. I use to want ALL the pieces, but now I just try to work with what I have, and enjoy mixing it with items in my inventory.

What I’m Wearing:

Analog Dog – Joy A (Dark Browns) Rare
Zenith – Shen le Kimono(Tiffany)
Zenith – Shen le Headpiece (Lemon)
Zenith – Rainy Day Umbrella Necklace (Golden)
Ingenue – Melisande Heels (Seafoam)

Since the launch of subscription boxes in SL, I have only purchased two. Those two boxes had about a dozen brands each, and I only really liked one or two items, so I decided that I would not buy any more subscription boxes. Sometimes I miss out on really great things from my favorite brands, but I didn’t want to pay $1,500 (sometimes more), just to have one item.

When I saw that Pink Fuel released these gorgeous Sugar Rush Eyeshadows as part of the Cutie Loot subscription box, it was already released so the price jumped from $1,500L to $3,000L! Unfortunately for the brands in Cutie Loot, the event fell apart due to mismanagement. Fortunately for me (and you!), Pink Fuel decided to release these at the main store for way less than subscription box price. Go get them!

These shadows are gorgeous, so shimmery.

Now is a good time to head over to Hair Fair! This gorgeous Lorelay hairstyle from enVogue is giving me wonder woman vibes. The twin braids are so cute!

I like clothes that are sexy without baring it all. Ricielli does it perfectly with this Paula Mini Top. I don’t have anything like this yet, and the length is perfect for pairing with high-waisted bottoms.

enVogue Hair – Lorelay v1
Ricielli – Paula Mini Top
The Secret Store – Nora Highwaist Skirt
ANE Accessories – Arida Boho Bag
ANE Shoes – Myth Sandals

Linden Endowment for the Arts, and Hazing in Second Life

Linden Endowment for the Arts, and Hazing in Second Life

Update 7/6/17: I was contacted by a Linden and told they’re looking into this.

This post makes me sad. I don’t want to type it. I’ve been trying to avoid it by settling the matter privately or seeking help from Linden Lab on the downlow. But after several tries to get the office’s attention about what’s going on, I think the only real solution is to make this issue public. They simply aren’t responding because what I have to report doesn’t fit exactly into their usual categories.

Everyone knows I’m about art. It’s what I do for a living irl and I’m very happy with it. After a great bout of years in the art field, I got involved with Linden Endowment for the Arts thinking that would be great experience for joining a real, larger panel for an established museum. Unfortunately, that’s not what I found here.

Hair Fair 2017

Hair Fair is open! From July 1st-16th, a percentage of every hair that you buy at the event will benefit the Wigs for Kids organization. I look forward to Hair Fair annually, cos I have so many fond memories of shopping here through the years.

Check out the official Hair Fair blog for a preview of all the hairstyles and direct SLurls. When I went to the preview last night, this post was not up yet, which is actually a good thing cos I got to see all the booths and discover some new-to-me  brands. I recommend going to the sims and buying the demos that you want to try directly, instead of relying on the Hair Fair Demo group cos that can get overwhelming.

I’m so impressed that hair designers got together and brought their best efforts to this event. In addition to bento hair, I’ve discovered that a handful of brands are now offering Style options, often built into the texture HUD or as a separate HUD.

Here are 5 hairstyles I love from Hair Fair:
