Nerds In Color

  I have a totally fun LOTD to share with ya'll today.  Well, I think it's fun at least so that's all that matters.  If anyone else thinks it's fun then that's a bonus.
  I saw this shirt from Zanzibar Creations that was originally at Nerdapalooza and thought it was super cool.  I was going through some crud in RL and didn't get to blog for a while.  By the time I back the event was over.  I was super bummed so IMed the creator and she said she was putting them out in the store.  SCORE!  So now you too can have a fun deer sweatshirt.
  My hair is from Discord at Hair Fair.  I thought it was really cool because it could work for both boys and girls and it fits a lot of head shapes.  It's unrigged and resizeable so that's even better for those with more, uh "interesting" shapes.  I like how the ends of the hair could look like the style was wet if you wanted that.
  My skin is a new release from Imabee.  It costs only 200L and comes with appliers.  Sweet!  I know you might be like "WTF, Imabee is back?" and the answer is "Yes indeed."  Imabee has actually had a couple of releases now and I have purchased both of them right away because OMG IMABEE IS BACK! but some people didn't notice the first time.  Now you can all notice.  Notice now!  Notice, then purchase, and feel the love.  Excellent.
  These nails are by Mandaria, a new store from my pal Mena whom I blog with over at Free*Style.  She's awesome and I am super happy to see her creating.  I wanted to pimp out her nail appliers here because I can. :P  They are really cool.  I am super jealous of her ability to make the nails look shiny.  She succeeds where I fail, haha.  I am only showing a few colors from the HUD, because showing all of them would be like argh too much work, but they are all good.
  I hope you enjoy my finds and support the awesome creators behind them.  Have fun!
Sweatshirt: Zanzibar Creations.  Male versions available as well.
Hair: Discord Designs at Hair Fair.
Skin: Imabee, includes SLink appliers.
Nail Appliers: Mandarina, lots of colors included in the HUD.  I honestly can't find where she is selling these.  She gave them to me and then logged off before I could ask and I can't find them.  The slurl is to her Marketplace store where I cam sure they will be once she puts them up.
Glasses: Meshdol, color change scripted. Only 10L!
Pants: Old, old, old free item from Ohmai, no longer available.
Pose: Croire, I am not sure if it's still available but if it is it would be 30L-69L on the Marketplace store.
Mesh Hands: SLink

Past and Present

 When I saw these boots from Lassitude & Ennui  for We Love Role-Play my first thought was "These are freaking amazing."  My second thought was "Something about these boots remind me of something else."  Well, I figured it out.

  Back when I joined SL in 2007 I went to this shop looking for old fashioned boots to match a gown I had.  I found L&E and my jaw dropped.  This was everything I wanted!!   I bought one pair of boots at the time and more later on.  One pair of the boots I bought?  Ankle boots with a brocade type pattern in a light color with shiny buttons.
  I am so, so happy to have a new version of this type of boot.  As you can see, mesh has brought us a long way.  Whether you were for against mesh coming to SL you have to admit that it has brought some really, really beautiful clothing to SL.
  These boots are available in several sizes that are rigged and they are also available in an unrigged version for those who maybe can't fit properly into the rigged sizes.  Several other colors available for only 180L each.
  Check them out at We Love Role-Play hrough July 31st now!  The 2006 version has, of course, been retired. :P

Something Different?

  So being at Hair Fair once it opens can be a bowl of lag soup horror, everything gray and unrezzed.  You take the time to rez the vendors, buy what you want, and move on.  Sadly this means you might miss some of the pretty booth styles.
  As I did last year, I decided to take pictures of some of my favorite booths.  I missed a bunch because SL decided crashing was the new black.  But here is what I was able to grab.  Nothing fancy, just enough to give you an idea of some of the prettiness.  Picture heavy so beware!

Check out the Hair Fair blog HERE for slurls and all relevant HF info. :D  Have fun!

Disco- Unedited

  I am exhausted today.  Like, nodding off every few minutes level of tired.  I can't sleep, however, because RL demands I keep these peepers open.  I thought of music and then I peeked around my inventory and decided to post this disco inspired look.  Then when I went to edit the photo the sleepiness hit me again.  My options were try to edit the photo, be too tired, and not actually post anything, or do an unedited photo (with some flaws...ignore them) and actually post.  So, as you can see, posting wins!  Woo!
  These items are really cool and I hope my photography is clear enough for you to see that.  I thought this mini dress with it's loose halter top made a good match for the disco bar set from Circa.  This free hairstyle would be a great updo for dancing.
  Check out the details below!
Dress: Fission (six color pack for only 100L through 7-13)
Hair: Pocket Mirrors (group gift in store for the SL Free and Offers group)
