Haute Punk Special Effects

Aubergine 3

The December Collabor88 collection is out and this time, it has a mixed theme of winter’s edge and haute punk couture, which for my taste, is just perfect while others might not be so interested in it. While I may not have purchased every single item presented there, I have to confess I have bought more than usual.

Today’s look is made with my favorite items: a mesh skirt from Aura, pants, sweater and boots from The Sea Hole, a top from Kyoot, a mesh scarf from Boom and a lovely skin from Illusory.

I would like to add a few words about the pictures. You may notice light effects around the character and on the background. Lately, I am playing with windlight settings but they don’t always offer a nice light for the face while other shadows are improved. To compensate, I am wearing a soft facelamp in Second Life and the special effects are appearing after post processing. I find it funny how things you don’t see on the basic picture may appear while working on it so I have decided to keep them.

Ison Vintage

Of course I could have titled this post Vintage Ison as I am showcasing some releases of Ison for the Vintage Fair. But it would have been too easy and while I like vintage, I have to admit what made me choose for this look is its rock attitude with leather pants and dress and animal printed blazer.

Since I have seen previews of the Ison girl Panic Boots, I just want them! And now these babies are mine! I am in love with their punk rock side with the british flag on the top.

One of the major assets of vintage is you can mix it with much more modern elements to arrive to a result which is almost always elegant. It is like vintage is never out of date, always coming back, always reinvented. I definately did not need a special occasion to go vintage, did you?

This post is vintage as in made with items found at the Vintage Fair but it is definately an outfit I could have put up together on other occasions. I love mixing genres, the classical ladylike precious jewelry from Donna Flora is always a win for such looks, aswell as a small 50’s style hat, in this case a new release from Nardcotix for the fair.

Of course, I needed a cluth from Vive 9 for the vintage side, not a bag, clutches are so much more elegant.

Finally, for the hair, I have picked a new style from Boon. I have chosen this one for its wild curls forming a chignon on the side of the head, making it such a fun hairdo, going on with the rock side of the outfit.

Hoping you have enjoyed this rock vintage lady post, see you next time !

Hello,

Phonebox

It has been a while since I have written anything but don’t worry, I will not annoy you with a long text this time either. I just wanted to let you know the new CheerNo Femme fall collection is out. I have chosen the Vintage mesh dress in blue Klein. To contrast with that deep “outremer” blue, I have picked crimson accessories, including mesh shoes and a watch from Pixel Mode and a bag i have slightly tinted darker from Leverocci.

Second thing you have to know is that Nah! is having a sale. If you are looking for great jewelry pieces, everything goes for under 50 L$, with awesome bargains for earrings at 10 L$. The headband and the necklace are samples of what you can find there.

Finally, Illusory has a somewhat new skin available at their temporary location. The gorgeous Paige had been released already for a special event some time ago. I had purchased it at that time and I don’t know if there had been a skin line following that. Since then it has been improved and is now waiting for you in six wonderful skin tones.

As a side note, I am working on a new shape so it is normal if you do not recognize my avatar. It is not the skin which is changing it so much. Stay tuned for a release some day soon.
