Summer Sweetness

The Atelier Kreslo Donut Festival starts today at noon. This is the third festival here that features sweets made by a variety of different creators. The donuts are all 40L and most are trans so you can share the love. Some of them have a really cute animation that lets you hold the donut on your pointer finger. Divine! 

Also, I must mention the Hair Fair, because it is on again and helping that incredible cause Wigs for Kids. It is nice to feel good about shopping in Second Life and this event gives you lots to feel good about. This hair I am wearing is from Adoness. You have to check out the full head to appreciate the artistry of this hair. The shaved tattoo layer is done really well (because lets face it those can look so very wrong) and features an awesome scalp tattoo in the perfect shade. The hair itself has a glam punk look I could not resist...I bought every style happily as 20% of my purchase went to help real kids in need. Luke is wearing hair from Exile called High and Dry also available at the Hair Fair. Luke's clothing is from the Men's Department.

Summer Safari

The Seasons Story opens soon and as always will present work from the top designers in Second Life. I think aside from the Arcade, Seasons Story and Collabor88 may be my two regular favorite shopping events. In this post I combined some of what they both offer for July. 

Collabor88 is open and ready for you to TRY and get in. Bring your linden, you will be taken in by the luxurious interpretation of the theme Safari. What I love about Collabor88 is that the designers always present the better side of the theme. The Loft for instance does not give you tired bamboo furniture but rather a modern leather set with stretched hide backing on the couch. All in contemporary colors and animal print carefully accenting furniture fit for a New York high rise apartment. Another stand out designer this round is Nylon Outfitters. The set of masks are so well made and textured, I can only hope there will be more in that series at some point. You can find lots of what you see in the picture at Collabor88 but that groovy belt I have on you will find at We Love Role Play, its another amazing wearable by DRD.

The Seasons Story always has a few great gacha machines and here is one from 8f8. This one is called our Secret Hideout and features two trees with animations as well as a cuddle rug. It is the details that win me over however, like this memory book complete with aged SL shots. IBI also does an incredible job with the trees and wood textures here. There is ONE secret Rare which I am sworn to secrecy about, so you will have to head over to the Seasons Story on July 10th and try your hand at getting it!

Signs of Summer

Summer in Second Life is typically kind of slow but that has not stopped creators and event coordinators from bringing us more stuff! July kicked off with two events that I am thrilled to see back! Summerfest and OMG Gacha. Summerfest14 had all of the bang of last years with many of the same creators and some new favorites. Summerfest ends on the 13th of July and I strongly advise getting over there because some stuff is exclusive and poofs once the event ends.Shown here are signs by Second Spaces and Floorplan. I also slipped Seven Emporiums FLF in here, Attention Pickpockets! More things from Summerfest are Anya Ohmai's hedghogs, Oyasumi's beach chair and crates. There is a watermelon bucket by Culprit and a drink cooler by Flowey! The awesome boombox behind me is also from Summerfest brought to you by Remarkable Oblivion. RO is also responsible for this crazy cool hat I am wearing, available at The Mens Department.

OMG Gacha returns after a short break with a whole mess of new machines. Alchemy breaks out the summertime cuteness with a Seal pet machine. The Balloon Seal Rare is floating next to me. OMG is open for two weeks so head over when you can and take some spins!

Summer Rocks!

July starts out with three great events to get you jazzed for summer. On right now is Summerfest and it is packed with fun items and a gacha by O.M.E.N you should hit before it closes. Featured here are Candy Doll heels for Slink high feet. These are the black ones, but I will admit to having purchased six pairs of these. I like to Candy Doll fat packs or multiple colors because the huds all work on each other providing endless variations. The animal print heel and sole on these are to die for. You can also grab the cassette necklace at Summerfest. It is made by Remarkable Oblivion and has tones of detail, is unisex and has a resizer for a perfect fit.

The Sneak Peeks in this post are from OMG Gacha and Rhapsody. These butterfly sunglasses are part of the OMGacha event and are really unique, made by The Forge. OMG Gacha opens July 1st with an incredible line up of creators as well as a beautiful outdoor concert vibe for the venue. Speaking of concerts, Hottie Cooterati has taken the musical route this time around. Their follow up to the amazing event called Cinema, is a music inspired event that covers many genres of music. You will love the custom venue complete with concert posters by Anya Ohmai. There are a few gacha there but the real stars are the bold pieces by creators like Pixicat, Peqe and the Skinnery all featured here. Summer in Second Life is just getting started!
