Oh dear but Hooray!

Oh my oh my – gacha addiction is what I have and I FED it today at Alaskametro ❤ I found two gacha machines stuffed full of deliciousss make up and nail colours ! One was just $20L  a pop , the other I think £35L , but w o w everything I won I loved. I also had a mooch around whilst I was there and spied a lucky chair, which I also won a coupla items from that I have yet to unpack. Most mesh heads are catered for and also some (but not all) items have the Omega appliers included. I admit I did also make a full price purchase, and its a set of lippies that I thought really popped out “Gilded”, as shown above.

Eye-shadows are overlooked by me so so often – but not now ! Thanks to the gacha machines I’ve got a whole inventory loaded with them – as they are gacha wins I can also pass on the ones I don’t use – I know Zan has a Lelutka head so a few nice treats coming her way. Prices are really affordabubble – Lip gloss’s I bought were under $100L for a palette of six shades. The group has a very small join fee (I forgot what it is now sorry) but there are a couple of nice group gifts to snag  on your way into the store.

Clawtooth hair NEW - Valentina Ruffled swimsuit - Pink Acid plumped lips

I’ve been hunting about for a one-piece swimsuit, something chic and sultry. Then I recalled the bikini I had bought from Valentina E at a summer event, and wandered over there to have a look around. Joy ! There is also a swimsuit in the same design. A few choices of colour, I chose black as I was feeling a bit vampy , the fit is just superb, enough cleavage on show and lowwww at the back to expose a fraction of derrière. Added my new hat/hair combo from Clawtooth “Adventure Girl” which is on sale at Collabor88 (I tolddd you I went a bit mad in this round !) Last purchase was another lip layer from Pink Acid called “Plumped up lips” in cherry. I’m SO glad that Pink Acid still does parted lips with teeth in tattoo layers, I didn’t get on with the loud mouth mesh thing at ALL !

Let me be your Fantasy

I havent been this excited in a while..I decided to apply for the first time everrrr..to be a blogger for the Fantasy Faire , I was sooooper pleased when I was accepted, wriggly with excitement to get to the sims and take a peek..and all-around-unbearable for a few weeks ! From a bloggers perspective..its all been  so painlessly thought out.. although I dont expect the brill organisers & designers have had much in the way of sleep the last month or so..I was assigned to three designers, on a sim that I was asked to give my prefs for..awesome! My *home* sim is called Nu Orne – Lost City..which if youre into fantasy wear , or not..is worth a visit too. I stood for ages on my first trip…soaking it all in..it really is an incredible build – built by Elicio Ember and sponsored by Arcanum…lots of nooks and crannies to explore..heaps of lush vegetation…huge stone crumbling buildings..very beautiful…very mesmorising…I headed over for one more look around before blogging..and found what HAS to be the most terrific low-lag free outfit ever! Still wearing it now…hair & shaved hairbase by the wonderful Wasabi Pills..and the glorious skin by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods..male & female versions available of this out..grab it and make your journey into these sims lag free…whilst still looking sensational!

This event runs from From Saturday April 21 to Sunday April 29. Fantasy Faire 2012 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world.  Nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer.  Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL’s  top  Fantasy Creators, spread across nine stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide. The Fantasy Faire 2012 is made possible by the generous support of Sim and Event Sponsors: Arcanum, Booshies, Epic Toy Factory, Fallen Gods Inc., Rustica, –= Solarium =–, The Looking Glass, T R I D E N T, and Vaengi Wings.

Sooo onto the donation items I have to show you. Dont forget…these are items that the designers are donating the proceeds to finding a cure for cancer..more specifically to the American Cancer Society…over the years the Fantasy Faire has raised so much cash for this …thats people like you and I…all of us joining together..and helping ..warm huggy feeling huh?

My outfit above is by SAKIDE…called “Runes Fairy dress” its a frothy little number with two skirt options..I slipped a pair of old fishnet leggings on underneath (just because I lovvve them)..and then…from Star Kindler Designs, this fantastique Filligree Masquerade  mask ! The work in it is amazingly detailed (this item is also appears in the FF auction, in a special colour!) Can you spot my darling brooch? Its by Amaranthus , the Starburst Brooch. In the pack are three sizes S,M,L handy! (The earings are also from this designer) None of these items will break the bank..so snuffle them up while you can !

Something a little more slinkier is this mesh  floor skimming gown from SAKIDE..gawd I adore it..The Lotus gown..wraps you up…and stuns the guys (or girls!) ruched around the midriff…simple balconette style bodice…it has five sizes in the box ranging from Large to xxS…so you should be ble to find one thats purrrfect for you! The arm bands come with it..and set of the exposed upper body beautifully..theres also a ring just for added glam.

Last pic of today is one more donation item from SAKIDE..the shepherdess dress…YES, you dooo get the ever-so-cute bow topped staff with it yay! YES the fahhhbulous wellington boots also ! Seriously how adorbs are those boots *squeee*..had to get Kevin my sheep out to add some pop to the pic –  “say cheeese Kev” *grin*…Im also wearing some Elf ears with this..they just completed the whole fantasy appeal for me..and gawd there are a lot of choices of these little wonders..made by SouthPaw..the “wood elf ” ears have a menu driven system thats pretty simple dimple to use..and a great choice of charms you can wear with them..you can change the colour of the jewels..the skin tone also !

Ive got to go back later and explore more of the sims..Im really curious about the “Shifting sands” one..looks deelish…have a ball and drop a few pennies if you are able, to the cause. Heres the url’s and further info for you:
