#453 - The Goddess Eos - 1 of 3 Goddess Outfits @ Secrets of Gaia

SECRETS OF GAIA - EOS GOWN, HAIR AND ACCESSORIES & LUMAE - NEOMA - ETHESI
The Secrets of Gaia - Goddess Eos Complete Set is one of three full Goddess Outfits. The gowns and accessories are of varying colors and all very lovely textured gowns. This is only one of the three. They are sold separately piece by piece or in the full outfit set and in the RFL vendor, the 3 complete sets! Along with other RFL items, so be sure to check the store. Each complete outfit has  different hair, nail polish, wings, shoes, belt and jewelry. Here I am missing the wings, belt and mask (sorry, I think I lost my mind!). The belt comes with the gown and the mask is part of the jewelry set. The wings are sold separately, but are included in the complete outfit packs. I will add the wings, belt and mask in a picture on my flickr. You will find Secrets of Gaia at the landing point of the Bazaar Dungeon. Secrets of Gaia is the Sponsor for The Bazaar Dungeon
One note on these outfits: They include sizes for 3 Bellezas, 2 Slinks and Classic Avatars (5 sizes) only. But, as seen above, I am wearing the Slink Physique size on the Maitreya Lara Body and used very little on the alpha hud to cover my arms and upper legs only.
SECRETS OF GAIA - EOS WEDGE HEELS (MAITREYA)
However, the Eos Wedge Heels do come in a Maitreya size as well as Belleza and Slink sizes. So they will fit the Maitreya perfectly!
Nail Polish is Dark Circuitry by Dark Passions, who is also at the fair too on the Severina sim. And I am wearing the purple shade of course! This design you will have to find at the store, it is not available at the Fantasy Faire.
THE DARK FAE - UNICORN DREAMS SLIPPERS
And when you do a lot of walking in those wedges some soft, comfy slippers can pamper those tired feet! These are The Dark Fae's Unicorn Dreams Slippers. And you can change the colors of the body, wings and mane/tail all separately with the included hud! So, so cute and needed! You will do a lot of walking on the fairelands! These come with Belleza, Maitreya and Slink sizes, and did I say how cute they are??? You will find The Dark Fae on the Sanoria sim. 
SKIN - LUMAE - CATWA NEOMA - ETHESI, EYES - AVATAR BIZARRE - WYVERN EYES PURPLE
& MAKEUP BY BOOTY'S BEAUTY
This lovely skin is from Lumae and is available at the Fantasy Faire. It is one of her two new skins and they are 50% off at the faire. This is the Lumae - Catwa Neoma - Ethesi skin. It is a light purple tone skin. I am wearing it on the Catwa Uma Head and Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. There are appliers included for the Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Tonic, Omega and the V-Tech bodies. There are two skins each for the Catwa and Lelutka/GAEG heads, shapes are also included. Lumae is located on the Pools of Ethuil sim.
The eyes here are the Avatar Bizarre - Wyvern Eyes Purple. These are applied to the Catwa rigged mesh eyes using the included Omega applier and there are also system layer eyes included too. This is only of two sets of eyes from Avatar Bizarre. You will find Avatar Bizarre on the Sanoria sim.

And of course, the Lashes, Eyeshadow and Lipstick are from Booty's Beauty! The lashes are the Catwa Eyeshadow & Lashes ~ Empress, eyeshadow is the Catwa Makeup ~ Phenomenon and lipstick is the Omega Lipstick ~ Bootiful Pack 1.

If you haven't heard, the Fantasy Faire has been extended one more week until May 7th now! So now you have more time to go visit the fairelands, finish the quest and shop!

This is the :[ET]: Cyber - Black Tattoo and it comes with Maitreya, Slink, TMP and Omega appliers. All their tattoos are quite affordable and you can use them on your own skins! I thought they were skins with those designs on them! What a surprise!

Here is the ~JJ~ Porcelain skin (cracked version) with the missing chips tattoos added. Also seen are some of the Commons and the Rare from the Yokai - Dragon Dust Gacha at the Fantasy Faire.

You will find Yokai in Tiny Town.

The +FC+ Sassy Panties Gacha is also at the Dark Side 3 event. There are 7 commons and 3 rares. There are pink and black panties in this set and they come in mesh body sizes only. Those sizes are for the Maitreya, Bellezas, and Slinks only. Very pretty barely there pretty lace on the back side and a solid fabric front.

#451 - What fairy? I never saw a fairy...

I happened across a place that looked quite comfortable to sit and take a load off. It was occupied though. I can't say by whom, but I was able to sit and rest a while! *smiles* Like I wanted.
**MISTIQUE** FAIRY TREE SEAT BLUE & SINFUL NEEDS REVERIE FEMALE SKIN AMETHYST 
This is the place I found to sit. It is the Mistique - Fairy Tree Seat Blue. Quite comfy and pretty with its soft pastel colors. You can hang it from the attached vines, here it is hanging from a large flower that is unseen, but also available at the Fantasy Faire. This Fairy Tree Seat also has 9 poses to choose from. There are also more matching furniture pieces from Mistique too. There is a Fairy Leaf Bed and Boat to match. You will find Mistique on the Willows of Nienna.
MISTIQUE - FAIRY LEAF BOAT BLUE, FAIRY TREE SEAT BLUE & FAIRY LEAF BED BLUE
The other two matching Fairy Blue matching furniture pieces. The Fairy Leaf Boat and Fairy Leaf Bed. Lots of poses in each. The Boat only seats one avatar but has lots of poses (15?) and the Bed has couples poses in it.
ROPED PASSIONS KELLA RFL COMPLETE OUTFIT & CERRIDWENS CAULDRON CHALIC FLOWER (SHORT STALK)
The outfit seen here is the Roped Passions Exclusive - Kella RFL Purple Complete outfit. This includes the horns, animated bento wings, corset dress, arm bracers and boots and is made to cover the Slinks, Bellezas and Maitreya mesh bodies. I am wearing it on the Maitreya Lara Mesh body. It is such a pretty purple and looks great with this skin. The RFL outfits are in purple in the store but other colors are available at the faire. You will find Roped Passions on the Severina sim at the Fantasy Faire.

The skin you see here is an RFL 100% donation from Sinful Needs. This is the SN - Reverie Female skin - Amethyst. This skin has Omega and Slink appliers included with it along with system skins, shape and brow base. This is just one skin tone, there are 9 more! And there is also a male versions too. You can purchase this single tone alone or purchase the fatpack for all the skin tones. Be sure to look for the Fatpack vendor if that is what you want. You will find Sinful Needs on the Severina sim.

Also seen here are the Cerridwen's Cauldron - Chalice Flowers RFL Edition (Short Stalk). There are 3 sizes in this package, a short stalk, tall stalk and a Wall stalk. All in the RFL purple as seen in the above picture! You can choose from 3 unique Relay for Life color variations for all or independently for each of these parts: Leaves,  Petals,  Chalice, Stamen and Tendrils. Make sure you read the notecard so you know how to do this. You will find Cerridwen's Cauldron at the Fantasy Faire on The Halls of Story sim.
SOUL - NIPPERS - ORC, DARK PASSIONS - DEMON CALLER NAILS & BANANA BANSHEE - FAELYN EYES (FATPACK 1 - LIGHT)
Here you see the new .:Soul:. Nippers - Orc mesh teeth. These have lots of options for the teeth themselves as you can see above mine are blood stained. There are many options for the top and the bottom separately. And quite a few options for the gums too. And there are the Needles, Chompers and Vampire versions out too! So not just one set but many sets to choose from. These are only at the Fantasy Faire until April 29th. You can find .:Soul:. on the Atherea (not sure if this is working yet) sim. If it is still having technical troubles, you can find the mirror platform on Sanoria.

These bright eyes you see are also at the Fantasy Faire. The Banana Banshee - Faelyn eyes fatpack 1 - Light and they are a 50% RFL donation.

#450 - Low Lag Avatar Freebie @ The Fantasy Faire

Do you usually go to the Fantasy Faire all dressed up? I do! But sometimes that causes more lag than you might like, so I thought I'd show you this year's Low Lag Avatar created especially for the faire. It is in RFL purple colors and dropped me down to a little over 46k with no other attachements. It is a fully dressed avatar but you can easily throw something over it to cover yourself up more. And there is one for both men and ladies.
PLASTIK - GUILDED FAE FANTASY FAIRE LOW LAG AVATAR
& THE DARK FAE'S - DRACICHIC LEATHER BOOTS
And this is the PlastikGuilded Fae Low Lag Avatar (Store on Pools of Ethuil) freebie at the faire (men and womens in the same package). You will find them at all the landing points of each sim. It comes with the hair, horns and includes mesh eyes (not shown). The clothing is not separate they are permanently on the avatar skin. It's a bikini like outfit and you can easily throw a skirt on over it. It comes with body appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya and Omega and Omega Head Appliers for mesh bodies. I am wearing it on the Maitreya Lara Mesh body. You can see the men's version in the ad at the end of this post.
I have added the boots seen above and I was still under 50k. These are The Dark Fae - Dracichic Leather Boots, a wedge heeled boot in a strappy style up past the calves but not quite to the knees. You can find The Dark Fae on the Sanoria sim at the Fantasy Faire.
TOURYUUMON - CURSED EYES (CATWA APPLIERS) --- BOOTY'S BEAUTY COSMETICS ---
DARK PASSIONS - MAL-FIRE NAIL POLISH
Of course I added some eyeshadow, lashes and lipstick to her too! Yup! More *Booty's Beauty* to add some more glam to this beautiful skin! New releases used are *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Makeup ~ Mink (lashes), *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Makeup ~ Metal Bitch (eyeshadow) and *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Makeup ~ Envy. All new releases in the past week. The eyelids were pretty dark on this skin so the Metal Bitch Eyeshadow purple shows nicely on this skin and you can see the lashes much more easily now.
I kept these eyes on since they look soooo great with this skin. They match perfectly! I've used them in a previous post but here they look so amazing with this skin. These are the Touryuumon - Cursed Eyes (Special RFL) and they are Catwa Eye Appliers only. You can find Touryuumon on the Athenaeum Arcana sim.
Finally, I added nails to this that are also in a purple design. The Dark Passions/Koffin Nails - Mal-Fire. This is a new design and found at the Fantasy Faire on the Severina sim. They are applied to the Maitreya Lara Mesh body nails (pointed). And I am wearing all this on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and the Catwa Uma Mesh/Bento Head using the Catwa Rigged Eyes.
THE MINKIE AVATAR BY TITANS
Another freebie seen here is the Titans - Minkie Avatar. It is also Bento and includes a hud that operates the movement of the tail. You need to wear this hud to keep the tail moving too. I like the look of this one flying better than walking on the ground, you can use your AO with it but the animations look odd to me. Depends on what kind of AO you have too, I would guess. You will find these avatars at most of the sim landing points. I picked up mine at the Halls of Story. And you will find more avatars from Titans on the Willows of Nienna. This avatar dropped my complexity to 8632k, that is a great number and should help out with the lag!
CHEER THE DRAGONFAE AVATAR BY TITANS
And again here is one of the new avatars for the faire, this is the Titans - Cheer the Dragonfae Avatar. This one is also bento, but is not a freebie. This will cost you a donation of $199L. Very cute!!! I love this one and the wings move constantly. With this one on my complexity was at 22488k. So not bad at all! And after this picture, I was able to tint it more purple. It is very cute as it is though, as seen above. This one you will find at most landing points but not all of them. Mine I purchased at the Sanoria landing point. You can also find it at the Halls of Story landing point as well.

Fantasy Faire ends April 29th

#449 - Looking About The Mystic Dome

MISHMASH FUSION - UNSPOKEN OUTFIT, BITE & CLAW - LYTA CUFFS & JEWELRY,
BIRTH - PENELOPE SKIN
As I approached I stopped to take a look around the area. I knew it could be guarded by more than these statues. I heard rustling and more sounds, but I was accompanied by wildlife all around. I stared and listened for a while before entering and looking around the fire for any signs of what activities might happen here. I could see nothing, no traces of any activities that had gone on here.
TOURYOUMON - CURSED EYES - RFL EDITION, SOUL - NIPPERS - NEEDLE [FF EXCLUSIVE]
Many of the items seen here are from the Fantasy Faire merchants. This beautiful skin is from Birth - the Penelope skin, the cuff set and choker are from Bite & Claw - Lyta Jewelry (Gold, but an RFL version is available), the eyes from Touryuumon - Cursed Eyes Applier (Special RFL edition) and teeth are an Exclusive by .:Soul:. - Nippers - Needle. Cosmetics here by Booty's Beauty (lashes and lipstick).

And a closer look at the Needle Nippers:
A CLOSER LOOK
Here you can see the Touryuumon - Cursed Eyes Applier (Special RFL edition) and the Exclusive by .:Soul:. - Nippers - Needle v.2 better. Both available at the Fantasy Faire until April 29th.

Come visit these amazing sims, all breathtaking and beautiful. There are region tours at 5 pm SLT daily. It is mainly for inspiration to write stories about each land, but others can come just to see the sims and hear a little more about them than you might see just walking around.

#448 - To The Warriors - Fantasy Faire Opens

Upon my most recent wanderings, I found something that touched my heart and I had to stop and sit to ponder what the warriors who've gone before us had gone through and what might they be experiencing. I wondered, are they watching from above, from beyond? How strong they were to have to fight this fight. I've not thought of that very often. How brave some are to go thru trials unknown, scary and with no guarantees of a health benefit to themselves or for that matter, their own life. All to find a cure. All simply to learn and hopefully heal, and for the benefit to those of us who come after them. This memorial brought all these thoughts rushing into my head.
HARSHLANDS - [HL] FF2018 MEMORIAL STONE
This is the Harshlands - [HL] FF2018 Memorial Stone. It brought all those thoughts into my head upon first seeing it. I think I may spend some quiet or reflective times here when I need it. The writing says this:
INSCRIPTION ON THE [HL] FF2018 MEMORIAL STONE
"To the Warriors who fought without giving up -- May your light never fade."

I hope I can keep up this fight too. If the current situation is any predictor, I am going to be well for a good while. I hope that is the case. You never want to be too confident with this disease. It can sneak up on you or return with a vengeance sometimes. But I am so glad others before me have fought this fight too. I know I am not alone and there are many who support this effort every year just to help trying to find a cure. Fantasy Faire this year is going to help fund a Hope Lodge in Kenya for others who also need hope. They also fight. I hope we can raise enough to give them what they need and send more hope their way. You can read more about our mission this (10th) year here.
HARSHLANDS - MYSTIC DOME & THE DARK FAE - ANUBIS GUARDIAN
After my time of reflection, I wandered further and found something larger and as I approached, I grew more curious. It had stairs on all sides and what appeared to be Anubis statues with burning embers on either side of the entrance I was facing. An interesting mix I must say. This was something mystical and well cared for to be so far into this wilderness. A fire burned brightly in the center, but not a normal fire this one is a greenish color...interesting. Different from the fire held by its guardians. I wonder what this could be?

Fantasy Faire 2018 is now open until April 29th - Come see these amazing sims while you can!

#447 - Time For New Blooms

Isn't Springtime all about the new blooms and pretty flowers, new growth everywhere? I am so glad that within Second Life, we can have that whenever we'd like! April in my part of the country is not cooperating as far as bringing the warmth and new blooms as it normally would. But hey, I can always step into Second Life and find something to take the chill off of a cold day, that should be a warm day!
FACEPALM HOME - MORTICIA'S GREENHOUSE
Facepalm now has a furniture or home decor line called Facepalm Home. This is one of the newest offerings, +FH+ Morticia's Greenhouse, and you can find this at the Dark Side 3 event this month along with the Morticia's Potting Table seen behind me in this photo. The greenhouse comes with the roses inside and out front as seen here (all one linked build) and is available for purchase at the event. The Morticia's Potting Table is one of two $10L gifts at this event. I am using it to house my normal plants and keep them protected from the wild growing alien (and not so alien) plant life growing outside all around the parcel. 
+FH+ BLOOMS AND BUNNIES
Back here on either side of the potting table are the Facepalm Home - Blooms and Bunnies which is available at the Twe12ve event this month. And, as you can see they are already planted so beautifully in some railroad tiers for easy placing. These would probably look very nice in outside on the lawn. I am keeping them inside to protect them from the wildness I have going on outside! But they would look amazing on the lawn outside your homes. There are also two adorable little bunnies on each corner of this planter. So cute! And so colorful just like we'd expect Spring to be, right?
FACEPALM CLOTHING - REAL FAIRY TALE
Well, wouldn't ya know it? I am doing all this while wearing this new T-shirt set called +FC+ Real Fairy Tale. You can find this at the Twe12ve event too! And in many mesh and classic sizes for all of us! Standard sizes, Bellezas, Slinks, Tonics, TMP and Maitreya sizes are all included! Above I am wearing in on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body.
I am also wearing the +FC+ Harbor shorts. These came out a little earlier this month and they fit so great on my Maitreya Lara. These shorts are also made for both classic and mesh body avatars too. All the same sizes as the shirt, but additionally with sizes for the Ebody as well! It comes with a 10 texture hud, 5 for the shorts fabrics and 5 for the belt too.
BOOTY'S BEAUTY BROWS, EYESHADOW, LASHES AND LIPSTICK!
NAIL POLISH BY DARK PASSIONS!
And of course, I have to be wearing some of *Booty's Beauty* products! I know I wear a lot of the darks, they are my favorites, but there are a lot of the pretty reds, purples, pinks in pastels and darker hues. So don't just think she only makes the ones I wear, I am kinda really into the darks, maybe it's the vampire in me! Here I am wearing two new Catwa releases, Eyeshadow and Lashes ~ Empress and the Lipstick ~ Paris. These are made for Catwa heads. Though you might check the store, she does make Omega versions of a lot of her Catwa makeups too! And if not out yet, they may be coming soon!
My nails are covered with the similarly named polish from Dark Passions the Exclusive - Ebony Empress - Gold. These are an X pattern filled with colors and lined in either Silver or Gold versions and a black background. They can be found at The Black Fair which ends on April 20th, along with quite a few other black designs! So you only have a couple days to check out that event before it ends.
And so loving these rings from (Yummy), the Leave a Mark Ring Set. They are Bento and come in two versions. One for Slink hands and one for the Maitreya hands. I have the latter. These are at the current Collabor88 (Ends May 6th).

So don't miss these events! There are a lot of things to see at all of them. And more to come!

Dark Side 3 - Ends May 5th

Twe12ve - Ends April 30th

The Black Fair - Ends April 20th

#446 - New Animated Furisode Kimono @ Kurenai

Yes! You read that title right, there is an animated kimono at the Kurenai Event this month for the ladies! There are animations built into the kimono so when you wear it, you do not need a special AO for your movement in this kimono.
KISETSU - ANIMATED FURISODE KIMONO - SAKURA HUD
This is the kisetsu - Animated Furisode Kimono. It's movements are built in to the clothing itself. So there is a standing pose with hands in front of you as you might normally see someone standing with a kimono on. There is a walking animation too when you move around. There are demos at the event for you to try it out too. It is quite beautiful! Here you see Unyque wearing the Furisode Kimono with the Sakura Hud fabrics applied to it. 
Once you purchase the Full set of this kimono, there are optional huds and Furisode Obi to get even more options on the fabrics. Above Unyque is wearing it on the Slink Hourglass body with the appropriate alpha cuts for it to fit her well.
KISETSU - ANIMATED FURISODE KIMONO - KURENAI HUD & OFUKU HAIR
Here I am wearing it on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body and using the Kurenai Hud. This is the standing pose when wearing the Furisode kimono. Hands lightly clasped in front of you. There are lovely fabrics included in each hud too.
This is also the kisetsu - Ofuku hair that was recently released in the store. It has so many colors huds with some varied colors you would not normally see in this style hair (I think!). So it can be used for many kinds of fantasy roleplay or just to be different! I kinda have a thing for wild colors lately. I am liking a lot of the new colors creators are coming out with now. Also, the ribbon on the top front of the hair (not shown) can be removed too. And there are a few options for the bun fabric, pins and ribbon (accessories) attached to the hair. It is also resize-able and unrigged too! A very lovely hair to have!
KISETSU/MARASCHINO CORNERS
And, if you haven't been to the sim lately, make sure you stop by! It's been redecorated and rearranged, the store entrances are closer together now and there may be more stores joining the four stores here already. So new buildings and more photo opportunities abound!  And there is still more to come too.
DREAMING THICKET - HASHBANG - MARASCHINO STOREFRONTS
FROM THE KISETSU CORNER
Hope to see you around at the sim or at the Kurenai event!

Kurenai - Ends April 30th

#443 - Bathroom Nightmare

Dreams can be so realistic...and pretty crazy sometimes. And then nightmares are another thing. In a recent dream. I was on the beach in a wonderfully relaxing and leisurely dream. Then suddenly I walked thru a door of a restroom (why? I have no idea - dreams!), but this door was not a normal doorway into your regular restroom!
.:SOUL:. GEN2 F - GYOUKO - [D3] SKIN, RYL - TRIKINI - COMMON 1 GACHA
The sink in front of me was overflowing with a black tar-like substance! All onto the floor, but the floor began falling away into an abyss! And if you know anything about Bloodlines, you know that is NOT somewhere you want to be! I can imagine the way this looked, no one would want to be there! Extremely uninviting, I would say. After being stunned into silence and shock, I watched as the floor continued to fall away piece by piece, very slowly, but still menacing and creeping my way.
ANTINATURAL - POSTHUMAN GACHA - VOID BATHROOM, MER INSIDE TATTOO & FINS & FEEDER COLLAR
And you know you can't get out easily from these kind of dreams, right? So I chose to try to jolt myself back into reality by screaming at this craziness in front of me. F%#& ALL THIS!!! And finished that off with a properly fitting gesture to mark my mood at the moment. Yes, not sure what to do but the room seemed mad and I was too!
Suddenly, all was back to normal but I was still in the restroom. It felt like I shook my head and things just snapped back. I looked around still in shock, and kept gazing at the floor. It stayed in tact and the doorway now lead back out to the beach (or at least it appeared to lead there). I was not awake yet...so I thought. But at least all was better now.
So of course, being the blogger that I am, I snapped some selfies...isn't that really what the bathroom is for? :) And to check your makeup, of course! 
RYL - TRIKINI COLORATO GATCHA @ THE SPOTLIGHT EVENT
These RYL - Colorato Trikinis are at The Spotlight Event until April 15th. There is a gatcha at the RYL stall (plus an Easter Gift too) and above you can see me wearing the trikinis on the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body. There are more sizes for Slinks (Physique & Hourglass) and classic avatar bodies too. The ones shown here are the Common #1, #3 & #4. The commons come in singles and the Rares contain two different trikinis. Key on Flickr here.

This shape is the +FS+ Bryna Shape that will be at The Dark Side 3 event beginning on April 15th. It is made for the Catwa Catya head and Maitreya body. I have modified it to fit my Catwa Uma head though. But, I am still tweaking it.

The hair is a new group gift from ICONIC called SIREN. It is a long swept back hair, it has 2 different styles and you get all the color huds with it. Here I used the Obsidians - Jewels section of the hud which gave me the option of this black with teal-ish/blue-ish ends. The cost for this group is $500L.

#442 - Lady Warriors and Hunters Take Note!

Roped Passions was a participant in the recent Medieval Fantasy Fair last month. And, here are the outfits that were the exclusive there, now in the store! These are the Uhu Hunting Outfits:
(RP)  UHU HUNTING OUTFIT - BROWN FUR - BELLEZA FREYA
These outfits are made for mesh bodies only and include sizes for the Bellezas, Slinks and Maitreya mesh bodies. I am wearing them on the Belleza Freya body in these photos. These sets include the outfit, panties, arm and leg bracers as seen in the photos.
(RP)  UHU HUNTING OUTFIT - BLACK FUR - BELLEZA FREYA
The same in a black fur version. There are also two more color versions that are not shown here. Those are the Light Brown and Mixed Furs. Poses here are by {Nantra} called Ayla. Do you know where that character is from (Ayla)? One of my favorite authors.
(RP)  UHU HUNTING OUTFIT - WHITE FUR - BELLEZA FREYA
And finally, the White fur version of the {RP} Uhu Hunting Outfit. I really like them all the way they fit on this Belleza body, but I most enjoy the white and how it looks against my darker skin. The contrast seems to make both stand out a little more than the others, I like that!

These outfits are now in the store and are $199L each. A great price for the full outfit!

#441 - Enjoying Some New Designs

+FCC+ DEJA TOP (GIFT) & SKIRT (EXCLUSIVE) @ INSPIRATION
I was meandering around lounging and decorating in this new outfit I found at the Inspiration event. Patterns are usually something I stay away from, but the look of this skirt just drew me in. This is +FCC+ Deja, the exclusive skirt at the Inspiration event. And the Deja top is a gift there too. They look great together! Both the top and the skirt come in many mesh body sizes (And Standard Mesh sizes too!) and here you see me wearing them on the Belleza Freya Mesh Body (which has a new update FYI). The Deja skirt comes with a hud of 8 patterns. All very colorful and beautiful! Mesh body sizes are Bellezas, Slinks, Tonics, Maitreya and TMP.
BOOTY'S BEAUTY - NEW COSMETICS @ THE MAKEUP ROOM & DESIGNER'S SHOWCASE
I am also wearing new exclusives from Booty's Beauty. The new Catwa Lipstick Wardrobe 1 is exclusively at The Makeover Room. And includes 32 lipstick colors! And the Catwa Makeup (3 Shadows/3 Lashes/18 Lipsticks) Booty's Box 2 is exclusively at the Designer's Showcase (Opens on April 5th). Both are for Catwa heads. She does have other makeups in Omega Appliers in her store so check that out if you need Omega Applier makeups! 
+FC+ BACK OFF - T - SHIRT - NEW RELEASE IN THE STORE &
+FC+ HARBOR SHORTS
And, now for the most recent snarky shirt from +FC+ Back Off! I love the Drama saying on this one! I've paired this shirt with the +FC+ Harbor shorts and the shirt fits very nicely over these shorts! Yay! Beware to those around you when wearing this T-shirt! You're coming and this shirt tells them the honest truth about what you think! I am sure you will find a few of these that suit your mood of the day. Let them know, they need to "Back Off" and think twice before messing with you!
This shirt comes with a hud of 8 different sayings! Also made for both Mesh and Classic bodies, it comes with sizes for Standard sizes, Bellezas, Slinks, Tonics, Maitreya and TMP (as do the shorts). The Harbor shorts comes with a hud for the belt and short textures, 5 shorts textures and 5 belt textures, to help you coordinate with more shirts!
BOOTY'S BEAUTY - NEW RELEASES: CINNAMON CATWA MAKEUP (EYE SHADOWS) &
MARTINI CATWA MAKEUP (LIPSTICK SHOWN/ EYESHADOWS & LASHES INCLUDED)
And finally, here are some more new releases from Booty's Beauty! These are new in the store and seen above are the *Booty's Beauty* Catwa Makeup ~ Cinnamon (eyeshadow) & Martini (lipstick) sets here. I love the shimmery/glittery look of the Martini lipsticks! And I love the shadow colors in the new Cinnamon set!
This is also a recent release hair from Adoness, the Valhalla hair! Shaved on the sides, it's a bold and pretty version of the ladies mohawk! Find this one in the store!
And the Backdrop here is also from Facepalm Home! The +FH+ Dark Side Backdrop will be at Dark Side 3 when it opens on April 15th. So there will be more home items like this in the coming months!
