Every Princess needs a crown.

Mouse_Story1

Okay so this post is not about a crown.  It’s about the rare phenomenon of Gacha. Here’s how it goes…I play a gacha, and desperately want a common.  I figure it will take me a couple of times.  I immediately get 3 rares in a row.  I play a gacha, I desperately want the rare…you get the rest.  I feel like I have to have my gacha voodoo working better, so that I can fool the gacha into thinking I want the commons and vice versa…or something!  Anywho.  I played for this lovely jewelry…wanted the necklace.  I got 3 rare crowns, and 2 pairs of earrings before someone on plurk said…”Why don’t you wait and get the common on MarketPlace.” DOH!  Anywho, I got this beautiful rare crown.  It seemed to go really well with some hair I picked up a while ago by Doe, and designer I know from previous brand, in a galaxy far far away!   The dress was another gacha.  I will be brutally honest.  I’m unsure about this dress.  The romance of it calls to me, but I could wish for a better texture.  The shoes are by the ALWAYS fabulous Ingenue and were snagged at the Arcade.  As always the full series of photos are on my flickr, along with tons of other pics by me.  The outfit credits are at the bottom of the post!

A Fool for Love

mouse2

Nothing I like better than a perfect little spring dress from Tres Blah.  Of course I picked the green.  This came in such a variety of colors/combos, that I had a hard time choosing. But it’s Spring sooooo.  The hair is new from Magika, called, “Fool for Love.” and it is dreamy and romantic. The jewelry is a little something I picked up a while back because I thought is was adorably imaginative – a pearl collar – perfection.  As always, full credits are after the cut, and you can find the full set of pics from this series on my Flickr.

Dark Mouse VIP!

I’ve been a shopping fool of late – and keep finding really lovely stuff – there’s so much out there now! I found a lovely skirt at the “Help Japan” event to benefit Japan, some wonderful shoes on sale at Ingenue, and a great top from Whippet & Buck for FLF. The flower hat is the latest lovely confection from Split Pea and graces new hair from the hair wizard, Elika Tiramisu! My skin is the mouth watering ‘Zoe’ from Tuli. I wanted to highlight my inworld VIP group for Dark Mouse – so I’ve paired it with my April group gift for VIP members – you have to be a member of the group to get this lovely necklace I’m wearing in the photos called, Pearls Forever! Full Credits at the bottom of the post. You can join my inworld group by teleporting to my store and touching the ‘Join VIP Group’ sign on the reception desk. Group gifts are distributed on the first of the month. If you’re not interested in group gifts, then join my subscriber, also in the store. When I grow up, I wanna be like Strawberry Singh! Until I do, you can use the wind light settings that I used, and she so kindly provides, by visiting her website!

Feeling pretty

I have an entire folder in my inventory called ‘new clothes’ and it’s where I stash stuff till I actually wear it, then I file it in the gadzillion folders I have for clothes. The folder is huge at the moment. I have been buying for weeks and then wearing the same thing for days while I get sucked into working on something new! In any case I just bought this GORGEOUS dress from Sn@tch. LOOK AT THE SKIRT. I love it. I love wearing this – it moves with my av so beautifully, and looks like crepe. I tried it on this morning and thought, oh man I have the perfect shoes for this and pulled out the Ingenue special shoes from the last shoe fair, and walla! For accessories, I’m wearing my own FREE Alex hair – the flowers in the hair band mimic the flowers on the shoes. The jewelry is a new set that is out in the store, Delicate Drama earrings and bangles, an intricate design.

Just a bit of Fashion for Life

I know I’ve not been ‘blogging’ proper of late. I really do like to but time gets away from me, and I’m usually focused on building stuff and then I forget and all the new things I buy on a whim in my inventory pile up and I feel overwhelmed by all the things I like. I’ve been wearing the same thing for days now. So I thought, blog it, you like it! I picked up the Katherine pants from Ingenue at the last Disco Deals, and the blouse at the Fashion for Life event – adorable and different from Vanitas Vesture. The jewelry is my own release for Fashion for Life, and the hair is a work in progress of mine that I hope to release soon. The shoes are GOS and the skin is the stunningly beautiful skin from Tuli, Zoe. Full credits below. Overall, I like this look it feels super retro to me, and a bit Katherine Hepburnish.

Blurred

Hahahaahahahahah It’s my blog and I’ll do what I want to, do what I want tooooo…So I FINALLY have shadows working, in some fashion, on my laptop! I have a macbook pro with an nvidia card, if you’re wondering. I’m using Kirsten’s just released viewer. I tried taking some ‘good’ pictures and here’s what I came up with. They are a ‘little’ dark, as I’m still futzing with the various windlight settings. I’ve pretty much moved to using viewer 2, even for building, which I never thought I’d do, as I am a stubborn mouse. Now that I finished my new hair textures, which I’m quite proud of, I’m diligently working on creating sculpts ‘for’ my hair. I’m going to spend some seriously dedicated time to this, and probably won’t release anything new for a few weeks. In the meantime, I thought I’d share my first ‘shadow’ pics. I had to lighten them up in PS, of course, but I’m wearing my own ‘Antonia’ hair, my trusty tights from Royal Blue – still gorgeous after all this time and the skin I can never get enough of from Tres Blah. A lovely top from Ingenue in pink, the dreamy ballerina skirt from Doppelganger which I love, love, love. My own jewelry set, Bohemian Flare and J’s Sabo boots! Oh and new eyes, which I like lots from Illusory, I hope the pics are not too bad!
