Sakura Petals

In my last post I promised more info on the brand spanking new poses by Roquai and their awesome collaboration with *NAMINOKE* available at the 2016 Fantasy Faire
I planned to do this post at the weekend but... well... I have new kitten in RL who is proving to be very demanding on attention and I can't resist her so finally here it is lol.
Roquai's Pamakhala Girl (300L$) and Pamakhala Boy (250L$) pose sets can be purchased in separate packs. The 'girl' pack contains 6 poses and the 'boy' pack contains 5 poses. What's really cool about all these poses is they are designed to work great individually or they fit together as couple poses easily! You can snag the fatpack with all the couple poseballs for 500L$. These poses are all very artistic and the sets contain a mix of kneels and stands, which are full of emotion and motion. 
The sakura petal 'dresses' by *NAMINOKE* come in both girl and boy versions in a variety of petal colours. They consist of several different petal attachments and these absolutely beautiful wings. 
A single outfit is 480L$ and an outfit with HUD is 600L$. 
Even better, you can get the Fatpack with it all for 1500L$!
The poses and dresses are designed to work really well together and allow for some great photo fun!

The fabulous shoes (perhaps fabulously lethal too! lol) are by Azoury and you'll be able to snag them at SaNaRae in 4 different colours. They are designed for the new SLink Pointe feet only!!
The mesh head is new by GenesisLab and I'm really loving 'Giorgia', which can be found at the current round of Shiny Shabby. She's both elegant and beautifully imperfect in her looks. There are 6 different skin colour to choose from and you can find the matching skin appliers free in the mainstore. 
The petal circlet and pauldrons are by Zibska  at WLRP, which is nearing the end of this round, so be sure to stop by soon to get the items at the discounted price! I thought the petal accessories matched perfectly with the outfit. The 'Roos' set includes colour HUD too so that you can adjust to your styling needs.

Rising From The Depths

The Second Life Fantasy Faire 2016 is open!!! This is the big event for all types of fantasy folk, from elves, fairies and mermaids, to medieval courtiers, princesses and warriors alike. The best part? There are an absolute ton of vendors that donate to Relay For Life, with some RFL vendors providing 100% donation to this extremely good cause. Full credit to the sim builders this year for the amazing job. I've included some pictures of my favourites further down in this post, taken prior to the Faire opening. I fully recommend going back after the initial shopping days to experience the sims when they are less crowded and enjoy them in their full splendor!

The tentacle "outfit" I'm wearing in this picture is by Storybook, new for Fantasy Faire. I was so excited when I first saw the WIP pic for this stunning new creation and after trying it out I'm in love! It really is so cool. I've also used it for props in my pic!
There are a bunch of different colours available, in addition to a Fantasy Faire exclusive edition to benefit RFL. It's made to fit Maitreya Lara, SLink Physique and Hourglass, and Belleza Venus and Isis. The outfit consists of a main body part, plus separate add on pieces for each leg.
You'll find Storybook on the Dangarnon sim.

Rising From The Depths

The fabulous fantasy skin is a new line by The Plastik, available at the Fantasy Faire. It's called 'Constella' and there are multiple skin tones and hues to choose from. Each has lots of appliers included in the pack, including Maitreya and Genesis as shown, but also Lelutka, Omega (head and body), Belleza, SLink and others.

The pose is by Roquai and is part of a fabulous new set available at the Fantasy Faire in collaboration with NAMINOKE. I'll be doing another blog post tomorrow with more info on the full set and collaboration but I couldn't resist using one of the poses for this pic too! Head to the Echtra sim to find the store ;)

If you've been waiting for the crowds to die down at The Epiphany, we're now a few days in and you should find things a bit easier going. Storybook have created their third instalment in their Greek mythology series especially for the event and bring the 'Artemis' gacha collection. The set consists of breast armour in 6 different metal colours, matching colour leg ribbons and flowing wrap skirts that also come in 6 different variants (skirt not shown). All are exclusively Maitreya lara fit. The rare items are the bows and antlers, each in 2 colour variants. 
I'm totally lovin' the knotted dreads hair styles Besom has designed for this event. There are 3 different versions - 2 common styles and 1 rare - with the commons coming in single HUD colour packs and the rares being split into 2 prizes containing 3 colour HUDs.
If you have multiple items you don't want and can't sell/trade, The Epiphany allows you to trade the extra's for points to purchase items that will be sold exclusively as specials at the current round of the event. Info on how to do that can be found here.

The beautiful necklace by Empyrean Forge can be found at the current round of We Love Roleplay and is available in gold or silver, each containing a colour HUD for the accent sections.

An early spring Sunday morning on Nymphai and dolly settled down on her picnic blanket to enjoy the sun. It was also a prime opportunity to show off some of the gorgeous new gacha collection by Astralia for the spring round of The Season's Story

There are 6 different colour versions of each of the commons.

Dreamy Doll

I've always been a huge fan of the doll avatars by *COCO* so I couldn't wait to check out their newest release. I love love LOVE it!! Finally a fitted mesh doll body! 
I've tried it with several fitted mesh dresses that are designed for Maitreya Lara and had no issues with the fit, no poking out through arms or back etc. It's awesome. I did try a few tops and shorts and these are a little more tricky, so bare in mind not everything will work but this doll body certainly allows for more flexibility when it comes to dressing in 'normal' clothes. As for the fashion doll range by *COCO*, designed for the standard *COCO* fashion doll body, not all will work with this one but the ones that will are indicated on the vendors.

*COCO* has also released 2 new doll heads. I fell in love with Nora instantly. I think she has a slightly alien look to her features, which personally I find cute. The great thing about these new heads (for me anyway) is that they have a closed eye feature again, which the other heads in the fashion doll range have been missing. Even better, there are eyelashes included for both open and closed eye versions. Eyes are separate attachment from the head and 2 colours are included in the pack.

The body (900L$) is modifiable and the new heads are available in both mod (900L$) and no mod (450L$) versions. Texture maps are included with MyDollKit mod body & heads.

One of the first dresses I tried on the body was the new 'Spring Dreamy' dress by =Zenith=, available at The Project Se7en. There are 4 packs available, each including 2 versions of the dress changeable by HUD. The cute bunny toy is also by =Zenith= at the same event and includes colour HUD to match to any of the dreamy dresses.

Each will be 202L$ instead of 289L$ whilst at the event until the end of April.
