Blocking the Door

  So, I know this picture is weird with the table blocking the door, but I really liked the way it looked so...whatever. :P
  Anyway, I really love these hunt items from The Artist Shed.  I really could say that about any item they release though so not surprising. Not sure what to say other than much pretty, go get.
  The cross thing is meant to be carried but it looks weird on my avatar so I wanted to use it for something else. It can be found in this really cool hunt on the Hakoniwa sim called The Dark Forest hunt. Grab the hunt and search the sim for lots of gifts. The sim is so cool and the hunt is pretty fun so even if you aren't interested in the gifts you should check it out anyway.
OK, check out the slurls to go get these goodies!
Table and Pumpkin of Flowers: The Artist Shed, hunt items, 1L each
Cross: Air @ The Dark Forest Hunt, hunt gift
House: Trompe Loeil, idk anything about it because it's not my house, I just took a photo there lol

The Geeks Were Right

  Hi all! I decided that I wanted a bit more challenge than usual so I came up with a plan. For my next few posts I am putting my Spotify playlist on random and whatever song plays is the song I will use as inspiration for a blog post. I am NOT going to necessarily use the imagery or literal lyrics from the songs. 
  For this post I ended up with the song "The Geeks Were Right" by The Faint. I just decided to do something science-y and sort of future-y but still with a simple, classic, Halloween look. Most of the items are free/cheap too so even better. Take a peek!
Neon Light Decor: Neverwish @ Hallows Hunt, gift
Glasses: On-Line @ The Seasons Story, free
Orbs: Nekotron @ Hallows Hunt, gift
Syringe: Insomnia Angel @ The Seasons Story, free
Wooden Wall Background: Silvery K @ The Seasons Story, free
Skin: Mango, Mango!, 25L
Eye Makeup: Shiny Stuffs, free
Longer Hair: Astrology
Nails: Dazed @ The Seasons Story, gift
Lipstick: Mango, Mango!, 25L
Corset: Dilly Dolls (got it in 2012 so uh probably not there or different if it is)
Frankenstein Hair: Ploom (store is now called Doe but this hair is very old so might not be there)
Head: Genus
Body: Maitreya
Information about the Hallows Hunt HERE
Teleport to The Seasons Story HERE

P.S.- I know I sometimes give not the best details on thing. Sometimes I might not say an item name, or get a slurl perfect, or be able to tell if something older is still available. Before I took my long break I was blogging a lot and was very stressed. A game I love dearly had been turned into a chore. I don't want that again. I want to have fun and take my pics and share with the like two people who read my posts. I don't want to go back to the days where I was reduced to tears and was aggravating my medical issues. So, yeah, my stuff isn't always going to be perfect. If you see something you want to know more about send me a note card inworld (my name is Sileny Noel) or send me a message on Flickr and I will do my best to help you out! Ciao!

The Artist Shed Appreciation

  Every time I see a new release from The Artist Shed I get excited.  All the items are well made, creative, and affordable.  This season has been so great because not only is the store releasing a lot of items, so many of them are free or cheap. Like...what the heck? How can a store be that generous? I know these things take a billion years to create and to constantly be giving them away (and at least one of her latest releases had proceeds going to charity as well) is a really nice thing to do.
  I wanted to show a little appreciation for all the hard work and generosity I see from The Artist Shed.  Here are some recent things I picked up.  I am not the greatest photographer when it comes to home items (or...anything really lol) but these items are so nice the photo is entirely unedited, aside from cropping. I think the photo turned out decent despite my lack of skill!
  So, yeah, thanks to The Artist Shed for making my SL a little better every month.  Stores that bring originality and creativity to SL is what has kept me coming back for over 12 years!
  Go HERE to get to The Artists Shed. On the wall by the entrance you will find hints and LMs to all the hunts and sales I listed. Enjoy!
Again, go HERE for The Artists Shed. Also go HERE for the store Flickr.
Topiary: The Boo Bunny Hunt item, 1L
Lamp: House on Haunted Hill Hunt item, 1L
Shelf: Past hunt item, not sure if/when it will be available for sale
Jar: Cart Sale gift, 0L
Planter: Phantastical Phantasm Hunt item, 2L
Artwork:Cart Sale item, 10L
The Bench is not from The Artist Shed, it is from Love Everlasting for the Lone Oak Harbor hunt. It's a nice bench and I am happy with it as it only cost 1L. I want to take a second though and complain about the hunt itself.  Slurls used on all the hunt websites are outdated. The Flickr account doesn't have every hunt item shown, for one, but most importantly there is no slurl to the sim on any of the official pictures. The sim is massive and semi-laggy and the items are not only hidden but spread out really far between.  The hunt object is very difficult to find not just because it is hidden like all hunt items, not just because it is a neutral color that blends into many of the items on the sim, not just because some of the locations are really stupid hard, but my biggest problem is that it doesn't rez unless you're really close to it. So you can't just wander around and look, you have to zoom cose to everything.  Argh. It took my like a half hour to find two items that I wanted.  Two. I found some other chests (the hunt object) but they weren't items I wanted, and frankly I didn't even find many of those.  I never complain about this stuff, ever. I generally only post positive things. But ffs this was too much not to complain about Bleh.  Sorry to end my happy post on a negative note, I just needed to rant about that. :P
  One more thing: I want to make it clear that this post was not sponsored in any way by The Artist Shed.  I just genuinely appreciate the store and wanted to showcase it. I want to do this more in the future and I think this store is an excellent place to start.  Visit them today!

Feeling Green

  So how excited am I about Halloween coming up? The answer is Very.  I am very excited. October is the absolute best time in SL for me. The events! The gifts!  The shopping!  The spookily decorated sims! Even looking through Flickr at what all the people I am following post is a spooky SL fashion lover's dream. I cannot wait!
  The stuff I am wearing today is a mix of very old and very new. Yes, I know I have been doing a lot of old and some unavailable items lately, but I can't help it. Bakes on Mesh coming out has made me incredibly nostalgic. I keep digging out my old favorites and swooning over them. It has actually encouraged me to start creating again so watch out soon for lots of gifties coming your way, made by yours truly!
  I know the picture is really dark and blurry but...I just wanted to be a creepy green lady, sneaky through your house to get ya. Yes. I'm gonna get ya. Grrr! XD  OK, have fun!

In the Shadows

  It's almost the start of spooky season, my favorite time of the year in real life and in second life.  My birthday is in October, Halloween is in October, a buttload of my family and friends were born in October, the weather is (mostly) lovely, the smell of leaves is fantastic, fall fruit is great, pumpkin spice season is around, I can wear my hoodies and sweaters, no more dripping sweat and paying for air conditioning, all this and more. Gosh I love fall and October especially.  It's almost here!
  To celebrate spooky season almost being upon us I did a nice, dark look.  Some gifts included in the items too so that's cool!  I normally don't do dark lighting like this so I am a little nervous but I hope it worked out ok.
  Thanks for reading and check out the credits below!
Gloves: Wicca's Originals, Twisted hunt gift
Dress: Luas (group gift, 50L join fee)
Necklace: Venge, Twisted hunt gift

I just want to add this: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU STORE SHOWS IN SEARCH! Or at least have it in your picks.  SOMETHING. It's really hard to track down some of your stores. Ugh.

Bakes on Mesh is Freaking Amazing

  So if you're looking for new release reviews or whatever then move along, lol. I just really want to talk about how much I love Bakes on Mesh. I know everyone else is but...I want to so whatever. XD  I have been posting things on Flickr about it, such as HERE and HERE, and probably will continue to. I just love it so much.  I practically cried when I was able to wear my freckles again. Here is just a fun look I put together:
  It's a completely unedited photo (aside from cropping and resizing, which don't really count) so things aren't perfect. But someone in Flickr mentioned they liked unedited pics so I thought I should give it a go. :)
  Now, things with Bakes On Mesh aren't perfect. If you remember back in the day before mesh body parts you'll remember that we had ugly flipper feet and low rez hands. That required different texturing than we do now. So old skins look...not great on modern hands and feet. Check this mess out:
    Some of this can be very easily fixed by creators who want to re-release old stuff. For stuff that isn't going to be re-released you just have to get a bit more creative with nails and tinting and other such things. :) 
  Anyway, I am excited to try this more and really pumped to see what happens with it in the future. Most of the stuff is no longer available but I will give some details where I can. Enjoy!
Skin: Fashionably Dead (can't find it so probably not available)

Little Girl's Style

  So my daughter was sitting near me when I was organizing my inventory and decided she wanted to help put together an outfit. I think we were successful.  She says it's her "aesthetic." lol. Some stuff is pretty old (the antlers, for example, are from 2013, oof) but pretty much all is still available. Check it out! I didn't edit this version at all except to crop the picture, so there are a few little weird clips and such. I might edit the one that goes on Flickr though. Not sure yet. We shall see!

Foxy Summer

  Hey summer pals! Before the Second Life birthday event ends you need to go! Got a couple of freebies here to make sure you snag (all but one of the booths has a gift though so catch 'em all like they are Pokemon!) I have some fun goodies from other places to show you as well.
   My little foxy ice cream was from Musu at the Equal10 event. It was a gacha item but every one is adorable. I got a piggy and a bunny too!
  My Genus skin applier is from Pink Fuel and is one of my new all time favorites.  There are so many options with it! You can get three different eye shapes, which honestly makes it like three different skins in one. I am terrible at listing all the things other than "omg this is amazing and I love it aaaah" so I want to direct you to the Flickr Page of Mochi Milena, the creator behind Pink Fuel. Seriously. check this out!
  OK everyone, check it out. Have fun this summer, stay hydrated, don't spend all day on the computer if you don't have to, and stay fly!

Top: Addams @SL18B, free (Magaly Halter Top) It's a fatpack!

Angelic Fuel

  The nude lipsticks from Pink Fuel made me feel very clean and fresh. I went to Bare Rose to find something young and sweet but somehow ended up as an angelic nun. Works for me!  I think the look of someone who is in a nun outfit but looks a but like an update young Pamela Anderson is fun. :P

Pink Fuel and More

  Hi all! I got this awesome skin from Pink Fuel for Skin Fair and I am all about it! I put together a look with freebies I got so enjoy some fun!

  This skin is Emiri. It was originally a gacha skin in three tones (those tones are still in the gacha only) but now this skin has been expanded to include a billion other tones for purchase. It comes with several brow colors, a no brow option, and 9 lipsticks. It's a pretty good deal and very high quality.  It's for the Genus head only so keep that in mind!
  My hair and earrings are from Analog Dog and Romanzi at the Imaginarium. You have to join the Gimme Gacha group to grab them. The place was surprisingly empty considering the adorable gachs items for sale and the ton of gifts. Check it out if you can! My head jewel thing is a fishing prize at Sn@tch. I love it so much. I always try to hit up the fishing area at Sn@tch each round and the initial pole purchase cost has been repaid over and over many times over the years.
  OK have fun and check out everything at these places listed above. Some very cool stuff!
Skin Applier: Pink Fuel [PF] Tomie - Genus Skin Applier, available @ Skin Fair
Earrings: Romazin - Earrings GIFT, free group gift at The Imaginarium
