That’s it! The Gacha mania has struck me at The Arcade event. For prices ranging from 25 L$ to 100 L$, you can buy items made especially for the event. It is a game. Each time you buy from a machine, you receive one no copy transferable version of an item. There are several colors and some are common while other are rare. I was lucky to get the Thruth hair in blonde fade, boots from ISON in red and the skirt from The Sea Hole in crimson so I was able to combine them to create this outfit.
As soon as I have seen the League Corset availabe at the Whore Couture Fair, I had to get it to complete this look which was way too lovely, romantic and adorable before. It needed some strong sexiness. I have braved the lag to get my corset. Be warned it is awfully crowded as The Arcade is.
Of course, I couldn’t be reasonable and stop the gacha mania at that point. I have played and played again, even getting three times some rare colors for the ISON boots. Fortunately, Yard Sales are being organized to resell the colors you don’t like or the ones you had in double. I am selling my extras here and there. The prices there are monitored. You have to sell the gacha for the same price you have bought them which is pretty fair for the designers and still allows you to buy more gacha or get the colors you are missing.
There are a lot of other items at The Arcade. It is a very fun event for everyone.

It’s been a while since my last post and I probably won’t post anything before a long time again but I felt like having a new profile picture for the scarse time when I am coming to shop in SL. Add also there have been some wonderful new releases lately, among which sublime mesh hair at Exile and beautiful creations at collabor88 like this dress from Kyoot, the earrings from The Sea Hole and the necklace from (yummy).
I am also the lucky owner of some colors of eyes by Ikon Inovia who has rebranded his store Fashism to IKON, along with moving to a new location, I am wearing here the new Utopia line in pale gray-blue.

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.
