unhinged – a festival for Eku’s head

Today is the long-awaited and much-anticipated opening of the “Unhinged Festival” event…the doors open up at 8.00am SLT…and boy-oh-boy, you’re in for a rare old treat ! I’ve got heapsssss to show you…theres gatcha machines *squeee*  stuffed full of goodies. Anyyyywayyy before I get over excited about the stuffage, you really should know a little more about WHY this event is happening, right? Sooo..(copied from the unhinged web site)

“There is this great person named Eku Zhong. She is funny, talented, kind, and also quite ill. Not ill as in awesome, ill as in sick. Not sick as in super cool (well she is that too) but sick as in very, very ill.

Her struggles started with MS. Then they found thyroid cancer, and through poor treatment it turned into bone cancer.  Over the last seven years, literally countless surgeries, radiation therapies, bone replacements and marrow transplants later, the stress of repeated surgeries has left her skull fragile and yet more surgery is needed.

The area where her zygotic arch meets the temporal bone is severely compromised.

Literally there is a risk that her zygotic arch could lift off the temporal arch and push the temporal bone into her brain. Actions as simple as chewing hard food or yawning the wrong way could cause this.

There is hope. Another surgery could correct this issue, but it requires the purchase of a prosthesis to replace the damaged bone. This is where myself and a group of people who love her dearly come in, and you as well should you choose to help out.”…read more HERE

Photo’s above & below show two of the fabbolicious mesh skull dresses from SAKIDE…loveloveLOVE these, they come in a twin pack, so you get two different colours. Easily worn as a top, not just a dress, tried mine on with leggings and trousers, looks sooper. My boots are from Lassitude & Ennui…only 60L a pop on the gacha machine! On the side of the boot is a gorgeous stitched skull design, don’t worry if you’re not into skulls, it’s not overly skully !

Apart from clothing, there are also all manner of things to buy. Such as my top hat! Its got a bunch of fibre optics attached at the side, that wriggle about and look pretty, heaps of colours to grab…and I SO love the cane by Misty Harley…now if you don’t snatch up this (or the dagger which is equally as awesome) you will deffo miss out…its a one off special for this event. Brill poses and the cane is so so SO pretty ! I’m also wearing a makeup by Beautiful Freak…there is a selection to win on the gacha…this one is gold…dramatic and I adore it.

It’s not all about shopping…there is a lot of FUN to be had…for the opening couple of days live DJ’s will be manning the decks and shooting out the tunes (did that sound hip enough kids?!) Heres the schedule for you, don’t miss it…its going to be a partay to be seen at ! Okkkk I’ve got bundles more to show you later…this is really just a teaser to get your juices flowing…an hour or so head over and get your dancing boots on, might see you there ~waves~

Sakide Rudiess

Proof positive that sending out notices of new designs works because as soon as I got this note I grabbed my remaining Lindens and TPed.  I love a little bit of boob flashing and yes this is how you are suposed to wear it but for those with more modesty than me you can of course team it up with a top because although the main skirt is mesh the straps are not and you get a choice of all 3 layers.  You also get a pair of socks with an old fashioned gaitors holding them up and they do suit this outfit really well and with a choice of 3 colours you can use them to finish off other outfits.  And the price? a more than reasonable 120Lds.

As soon as you enter the shop ignore all the goodies and zoom in on the back corner because there you will find some LBs and 2 MMs  and once you’ve scanned to make sure your initial isn’t there then you can have a leasurely time checking out all 16 Gatchas and then all  3 floors of really nice unfussy, great textured, with attutude, Sassy Kitty clothes and if you have a lot of SL time to kill the top floor is devoted to Camping Chairs.

Rainy Day

Its raining its pouring…the old man is snoring…and so it goes..another washed out summer for England …I’m carrying on as usual…dashing about in the downpours…eating ice cream and resisting the urge to slip into a big sweater and copious layers. Treated myself to some items from SAKIDE yesterday…these pure white capri pants (they come with a cute cuff too but I prefered them without) and these uber cute white daisy clogs..you can turn the daisy on and off..sweet! These items are on offer at the Black Market event..only 40L each.

Poison has got onto the mesh bandwagon yay! They have released a heap of these blouses…with some really groovy prints…big sleeves..tunic style…

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:
