Wonderland

Have you ever heard of Lootbox? Instead of winning rare items individually, you win a rare lootbox with the special items inside it. I wanted the Wonderland set from Astralia, cos for some reason I can’t resist anything Wonderland themed. I love being Alice! I went through my old blog posts and found some Alice looks that I wore years ago, and realized that my style was more fun then.

Speaking of Wonderland themed items, can you guys send me some links to stuff that I don’t know about? I want clothes, decor, anything!

Before you play for this Astralia set, beware that the pose included with the background doesn’t look exactly like my picture (or the vendor ad). The arm holding the bottle does not bend that way, I edited the pose myself so what you get won’t look anything like this.

What I’m Wearing:

Truth – Rumor
Astralia – Wonderland Gacha
Blueberry – Cocodoll Set (Sky) & Bracelets/Necklace
Katat0nik – Cards1 Wonderland Pendant

The Sylva Dress from The Secret Store is easily my favorite dress at the moment. I love palm trees, palm prints, and everything that reminds me of the beach or a tropical island. I even found a chair from Glam Affair Home @ Collabor88 that features pillows with palm prints! I added some planters around my house to bring more greenery indoors. Most of the house plants are from What Next, and the planters are texture-changing.

Maitreya - Lara Mesh Body v4.0 (Bento Hands Update)

Just last month, I blogged about the SLink Dynamic Hands, and today I bring you the Maitreya Bento Hands! Now that I’ve worn both pairs of hands, my observation is that they’re both quite similar products with each having a dozen or so poses included, along with more options such as the ability to change nail shapes, and control the hand poses independently. Both are also free updates if you already own the hands (for SLink) or the body (Maitreya).

Which hands should you wear? The obvious reason is to pick a pair of hands that you like best overall. I the SLink hands shape, but I love the almond nail shape on Maitreya. Both of these hands include casual hand shapes, in addition to some unique ones so it’ll be fun to swap them out for different photos.

How do you get the free update if you already own the Lara Mesh Body from Maitreya? Just wear your body, you should receive a package automatically.

What I’m Wearing:

Wasabi Pills – Shizuko Mesh Hair (Style 2)
Teefy – Daisy Romper (Bloom)

I just wish I had more time to blog, cos the things released in SL now are the best they have ever been. I’ve worn my dynamic SLink hands exclusively, and buying new nail  polishes to add to my huge collection. I bought the new SLink ballerina style nails (@ Skin Fair), and it’s such a nice change from the default shapes. I can’t wait for more rounded nail tips!

Teefy released this adorable Simone Dress (@ N21); I love the pattern! I am pairing my outfit with the Asuka hair from Truth (@ Uber), and wearing the hat cos it has a shade of blue that matches perfectly with my dress.

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Asuka (+Hat)
Teefy – Simone Dress (Retro)
Ingenue – Ulla Sneakers (Navy)

SLink Dynamic Hands

SLink Dynamic Hands have arrived! If you love bento mesh heads, you’ll love these dynamic (aka bento) hands. I haven’t tried the other bento hands on the grid, cos I was waiting for a release for a body that I do own, like SLink or Maitreya. The bento update is free, if you already own SLink avatar enhancement hands; go to the SLink store to get a re-delivery.

At the moment, the only poses available are the standard ones from SLink hands, but more poses are coming soon. I love that switching hand poses is now done through a HUD – so no more switching hands for different poses, there’s only one pair to wear. The movements are super smooth, and the ‘relaxed’ hands even have subtle finger movements to add more realism.
