morning noon and night on Flickr.

Arcade began at midnight, did anyone get any sleep? Its a birthday round so there is a metric ton of fun there! Really, there wasn’t a machine that I didn’t want to hit, but that’s not unusual. With the coffers low, I returned to my liar to sort through my loot.

Morning: The moment U.F.O. put up the preview of the banana in pajama, I knew it had to be mine. How could it not? The pattern is spunky, but the attached head is hilarious and, frankly, what my inventory was missing. The kitty companion reminds me of a toy someone gave me when I was small, but this is much cuter and comes with a nice animation. The slippers are sweet, too, I wish they made quack sounds like I walked!

Noon: Ready to be ironic or whatever hipsters do (I’m old, okay? So old. (not really, just uninformed)). Actually, let me leave the hipster to the cat and I’ll be mori-esque with these cute woodland accessories from Half-Deer and slouchy sock/boot combo from Tee*fy. The details on both are delicate. The socks are HUD changeable, too! This hip-cat neck to me is from Alchemy/Birdy, it sways to and fro and follows me wherever I go. I love the little outfit and and great accessories, which the non-digital camera is supposed to be quirky, right? Right!

Night: Flash Gordon, keep your pants on! This spacesuit/helmet/gloves are amazing. Auh-muh-zing. I love retro sci-fi and this was just amazing. I know I’ll go broke trying to get all the bits and pieces, but how can you not? While not shown, the ass on this won’t quit. What space-girl would be complete without some kicky futuristic accessories? BOOM has you covered with a Pyro gun and jet boots. Gotta be able to blast off at a moments notice! Another cat-panion (HA!) from Pixicat this time. You have to have a helper and what’s better than a big fat cat squeezed into a sleek spacesuit? NOTHING, look at those widdle paws. Seriously, look! He has a little helmet, too, isn’t that adorable? I need one of those for my dogs. Luckily, there are dog options, too.

All: Glam Affair’s Skye skin is gorgeous. The heavy lid sits perfectly (which we all know can be derpy looking if you aren’t careful) and the lips have just the right amount of shine to make them look fuller and better than just any AV adjustments you can make. I must say I’m particle to the Noon look’s make-up. Totally 90’s-tastic and is making me yearn for Revlon’s Raging Raisin lipstick. Exile’s hair style this round (and on Noon), is a great updo. The wispy front layers with swooping bangs is a great wistful combination that can is versatile for any style. I almost threw it on the banana girl, but the cat would have blocked the best parts.

That’s only a tiny portion of Arcade, so keep an eye out for more!

The Beauty Hair from Olive is every Disney girl’s dream! I really can’t wait to see what people do with this style! The headband is color change and the textures are really nice. The Beauty goes very well with La Malvada Mujer’s newest jewelry release, Agata. This jewelry is wonderful detailed, down to the faint Madonnas etched into the crosses. The gems have a subtle glow in the crown, I really think this is a gothic look I can get behind.

kawaii rainbows on Flickr.

Arcade is around the corner! Its the second anniversary and sure to be a blast! The first thing I have gotten my greedy little hands on is this beautiful hair from Olive. In one the rare colors, Unicorn Vomit (it’s rare because it comes with a colorful choice of tones via HUD). I love the Ocean Hair! The wave is great and the rainbow hue is even better. And it goes nicely with this pretty pink bikini top from DRIFT. I love the terry texture and the fit is great, too, which can be a little difficult with itsybitsy pieces like this, but DRIFT takes care of every detail!

colors of the wind on Flickr.

I know, TFC is New Orleans themed, not Disney Pocahontas. It was hard to resist, so I did not! With Exile’s wind blown style and the fur and necklace from Enfant Terrible, I went with it! I like the dream catcher details on the necklace and the fur is interesting with the bead and feather like fringe work on the ends. The color from Buzzeri’s eyes only made me think more about that song, I really like these pupiless orbs and usually I steer clear of those types of eyes. Haste’s shorts are an interesting addition to my inventory. I really like the three belts detail and the texture is nice, too.

All of these can be found at The Fantasy Collective.

I am so ready for cooler, fall like weather. Sweater weather! Atomic filled this feeling up with a set of very cure sweater dresses and to keep them ‘professionally cute’, some very nice collars with rose and bead details. Each package comes with three colors, two solids and a floral.

I had been thinking that I needed a new pair of heels, but the highest setting slink feet allowed and fri.day provided! I love these shoes! The sleek but substantial heel on these is great and the details with the straps are perfectly placed. I really like the subtle two tone texturing, too.

snake eyes on Flickr.

The Fantasy Collective has some really slinky things this round, and I’m not talking about Slink appliers. Peqe’s dress is, as usual, sexy, but without being too revealing. The ‘keyhole’ is more like a doorway, but cut just right. The hair from Tableau Vivant is lovely (and comes with an optional hat). The necklaces from Pekka and Boom are delicate and tasteful, even for bones and skulls. The prop spell book is very detailed and the snake is icing on the cake.

electric mango on Flickr.

This dress from Tulip is beautiful! I love the texture and this blue is perfect. The length and fullness is just right, too, and for something that seems as simple as a slip can go wrong very quickly, but this is just so right.

So are the new release of hairs by Olive! This mango-orangy color is delightful and so unexpected that I was really bowled over that I feel as if this was the shade for me. The styles are just right, too. Something nostalgic about them at the same time so modern. The price is right and if you are in for a treat, after I set up this pose, Olive released a beautiful group gift for you to get in on the cheap!

voodoo hoodoo on Flickr.

The Fantasy Collective opened with a Mari Gras worthy parade. New Orleans is the theme this month and its an interesting mix of mystic and raw beauty that the city invokes. Blue’s short bang style is growing on me. Its quirky and different from what most people are putting out these days. If you like the style and not the bangs, there is a long bang option as well!

PFC’s voodoo costume is so detailed! The arm and leg attachments are intersting, I really love how there are bones and feathers woven in through the gathers and the skirt has some as well with a leather tatters that are very nicely textured. The Nyx necklace from random.matter (and not at TFC) went so well, I love the dark plum color of the stone. The anklet from Amala is just what I love most about that brand’s jewelry. Its delicate and tidy, but that doesn’t keep it from being a beautiful statement.

Last, this pose is from Del May and I always depend on them for graceful but unsual poses. This is a new-ish one that I accidentally bought twice and would have gladly paid for three times because I’m so pleased with how it looks with my avatar. I wish they came in packs, but for 50L a pose, its worth it!

moments lost on Flickr.

MishMish and Mien’s collaboration in this Memories chair is out of sight! It’s beautifully put together (open or closed) and the poses are just perfect. It’s just a really sweet item and I really don’t gush about furniture often. And it was a good occasion to just pull out this helmet from random.matter, because, why not? It went really well with Olive’s addition at Kustom9. Again, the HUD 2 pack is full of amazing shades you won’t find anywhere else.

lady godiva on Flickr.

I had two beautiful posts and somehow they were lost, but I had to get these up because I was really happy with the way everything came together. These are going to be raw-ish snaps today and tomorrow.

With this hair from Olive and dress from Fashionably Dead (both at Collabor88) made me feel like lady Godiva. They are beautiful and sexy and it also reminded me, with this pose from Flowey, made me also feel like a modern day sex symbol, Christina Hendricks, but blonde. Just a lot of feeling likes this time around. The textures in the dress are beautiful and meticulously done. It comes in an opaque version and other colors as well. Much like this goddess of a dress, you need hair and Olive makes goddess hair like you wouldn’t believe. This is just perfectly coiffed and so long! Its a perfect match.

These shoes from fri.day are so freaking cute, they rival the little Chihuahua. The pack they come with is massive and they even have two style exclusives at the benefit Olive You (to benefit Rose, the owner of Olive). They fit slink medium heel feet and are really well done. I love the little bow and the T-strap keep it from being too cutesy. Not that I ever had a problem with that!
