Deviance @ The Costume Ball!

There is a few more days left til Halloween and that means you have just a few more days to visit The Costume Ball.  So many great outfits and accessories!


This was such a cute sexy outfit, I decided I had to get it and show it off.  I normally don’t do pink, but this is such a luscious color, that it just struck me as ‘the one’.  It comes in a ton of different colors too! The maker is Deviance and the outfit is called “Devilish”, great for a club or party type Halloween event!  Oh, and the best part? Glitter. If you get all “Oh. Shiny.” over all that glitters… you might want to give this cute outfit a try!

Haste & Pink Fuel @ The Costume Ball!

Well tonight is the first night in about a week that I have felt well enough to sit in front of my computer, work on pictures and write a blog entry.  I’ve just been too sick to do anything since about last Monday!  I’m so so so happy that I am starting to feel better.  I’ve been wanting to share these pics with you for quite a few days now!

Haste and Pink Fuel both have items out at The Costume Ball.  The set up is AMAZING if you haven’t been, you should consider checking it out.  If for some reason you haven’t heard of The Costume Ball, here is some info off the press release:

“From the 24th of October to the 1st of November, designers entered will be able to use free vendor space for The Costume Ball. They must make an item exclusive for the event, fitting the theme of “dark, but with class.” That means no gore, or repulsively overdone content that is tailored more outside of the bounds of culture.”


Haste has put out this daring lace overlay dress that’s ready to slink into a dark couture party or onto a bedroom floor at a moments notice.


Pink Fuel is one of those brands that makes a fabulous product, and doesn’t get near the press it deserves.  Beautiful skin tones, lovely shading and details, and for The Costume Ball, some make up that is vampish and deliciously out of this world.

Style Card:

  • Dress: Haste – Costume Ball Dress (The Costume Ball)
    Skin: Pink Fuel – Alyx (Vanilla, Siren) (The Costume Ball)
    Hair: Truth – Dawson (Raven)
    Shoes: G*Field – Alex (Black Suede)
    Nails: Synthetique – Ultimate French

Valentina E. @ Summer Harvest Hunt & FaMESHed!

The Summer Harvest Hunt by The Ego Co. is in full swing and one of the cutest mesh dresses in the hunt is from Valentina E. Couture. At The Ego Co webpage you can get SLurl’s and hints to each of the gifts, and don’t forget the in-world group if you need extra encouragement!

Valentina E. is also one of the regulars at FaMESHed and this months dress is a stunner.  It has a snake for a collar that melts into the dress as it goes around the neck and down the side of the dress.

Glam Affair has long been one of my favorite skin makers (I even have skins back to the days of Beauty Avatar!) and I am sooo in love with the newest release Lilith.  I’m wearing it in the America tone.

Fluid – Stakey

Fluid is happening right now! If you haven’t heard, it’s a bi-weekly event bringing you themed creations from some of SL’s best pose, props, animations and furniture creators.  This first event is “Summer Fun” and all the poses are themed around summertime!

Stakey has this great pose set called “Timeless Strawberry” and it is perfect for summer!  The strawberry prop is adorable!  My friend Jack posed with me and he used the free AnyPose Hud from the marketplace to set his eyes on the prize and hold his mouth open.  This is my first time using a pose from Stakey, and I can’t wait to go check out the main shop.

This past Friday saw the return of Fifty Linden Fridays to the grid.  It was exciting and chock full of goodness from any of the old favorites, and a couple of fantastic new ones too!  One of these new FLF shops is One Bad Pixel.  The Babytux lingerie in mesh with the babydoll dress (not shown) included was a great bargain.  The plum color is gorgeous, and seemed a fantastic fit for the Stakey pose.

Style Card (Joie Only)

  • Lingerie: 1BP – Babytux (Plum)
  • Skin: Glam Affair – Mia (Natural)
  • Hair: Boon – TUN247 (Chestnut)
  • Feet: Skifija – Mesh feet from the Lady Night pumps

Fluid Preview – Captivity Poses

Fluid is starting tomorrow, And wow am I excited!  It’s going to be a bi-weekly themed event featuring poses and furniture.  Each new rotation will have a different theme, and the first one is called “Summer Fun.”  So I think we can expect a whole lot of fun things!  As a pose junkie…  I’m in my element.

L to R: Joie Arai & Axelle Paramour smooching on the dock.

Captivity Poses was kind enough to send out a blogger review copy of a pose they will have on offer.  This is called Sparkler Kiss and comes with 2 particle emitting sparklers.  One each for him and her.  This was so sweet, I couldn’t resist grabbing the closest good looking boy and having my way with him. Ok…  maybe just a little smooch.

Mesh Around – BUID, Jinx’d

Still more gorgeous items from the Mesh Around Hunt!  How awesome is this hunt?  Loads of really nice stuff, a fun time and for me, exposure to new designers, which is the best part of all.

The bow front top from Jinx’d Inc is really sweet, a great neutral color that can be worn in so many ways and with nearly every color.  The S Jeans from BUID are a great plumb plaid that are funky and fun.  I found the fit of the jeans to be very good, and the nice thing about mesh freebies is that you get to try the actual item, and not a demo.

The skin I am wearing is from the newest Collabor88.  It’s by Glam Affair, and called Mia.  The make-up is Disco C.  Love it!  I can’t wait for a full release of this skin!

See that bench in the background?  That’s the Mesh Around Item from Cheeky Pea!  It’s so gorgeous.  The sweet ivy crawling over the arm and the beautiful bird texture are fantastic.  Cheeky Pea always adds such great details to their pieces.  This is totally worth anyone grabbing!

Style Card:

  • Top: Jinx’d Inc – Mesh Drawstring Tube (Taupe) (Mesh Around)
  • Jeans: BUID – S Jeans (Mesh Around)
  • Skin: Glam Affair – Mia (Disco C) (Collabor88)
  • Hair: Truth – Enisa (Jupiter)
  • Shoes: [e] – Millside Flats (Brick/Mushroom) (Previous group gift)
  • Ring: HANDverk – Geode Ring (Mesh Around)
  • Nails: Synthetique – Color Tactics (Reds)
  • Glasses: GOS – Intuition

The Mesh Around hunt is really fun, with some great finds.  I’ve been having an amazing time!  You have till the 15th to get in on all the great finds and freebs!  Who knows, a new favorite shop could be at that next location!

Happy Undead has two really cute tube dresses.  This one is called “Summer.”  The other is “Watermelon” (Not shown).  What really nice about these dresses is not only that you get two of them, both equally cute and summery, but that Happy Undead has offered them in a load of different sizes, including for larger breasts/bottoms.  That can mean the difference between a well fitting dress, and one that doesn’t, without any change to your shape.  Great option for a freebie.

Wow is the Mesh Around Hunt going strong and in full steam.  I thought today, I’d grab Maci and I’d show you one (really two!) of my favorite sweet dresses!  The Night and Day gift from Sakide!

This is the sweet floral print Daytime dress.  A lot of extras with this gift including Shoes (Not shown) for both dresses!  The skin I am wearing here is the limited addition Mia skin from Glam Affair for the CHIC2 event!  It’s so stunning!

This is the Night time version in sexy black and modeled by our gorgeous cupcake Maci.

But that’s not all!  I’d love to call your attention to these sexy, sultry, summery PINK nails!  These are not a part of the hunt, but they are the newest release by Synthetique.  15 Gorgeous shades of pinks on one hud!  You know a really cool thing about Synthetique nails?  If you already own a pair, and buy a second, you don’t need to remove the nails and put the new ones on.  And Synthetique hud will work with the Synthetique nails you’re wearing.  So convenient.  This is my favorite brand of nails now, and I don’t wear anything else!
