Archie Appeal

… a fundraiser for a beloved cat.

Archieappeal

It’s no secret that I’m fond of cats. And I’m sure many cat-owners will agree when I say, they are much more to us then just pets. And when something happens to them, it’s just heartbreaking.

A couple of weeks ago Gospel Voom, creator of Gos, went through just that. His cat Archibald was hit by a car and was seriously injured. Luckily Archie managed to make it home and is now receiving medical treatment. But this treatment doesn’t come cheap. So to help pay for the costs, Gos is having a 50% off sale at the store at Truth district.

On top of that, a number of creators have donated items, some exclusive to the event, with proceeds going to the Archie Appeal. These vendors can be found at the Truth District landing point, leading up to the Gos store. The fundraiser will run until September 2nd.

Feldgrau

… week 35 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Feldgrau

Feldgrau! Jawohl, Fräulein Luna! 🙂

Anyway, this week’s color is a kind of muddled gray/green kind of color. Not my favorite and also not easy to find. In the end I got lazy and tried the SL Marketplace.

And among several military uniforms, this lace top tube dress came up in search. The color was spot-on, because it was actually made for the color challenge. Now that is what I call convenient!

Hermit

… please be gentle.

I’m not sure what it was, but I just couldn’t put a decent look together this week. I’ve been running around the grid in this outfit for about 5 days now, trying to figure out what it was missing. But I didn’t manage to find it.

So I’m just going to post my outfit as it is, so I can at last get it out of my system.

Just a note about my shoes: they are a kind of add-on to SLink’s new medium height bare feet. Those feet are a seperate purchase. But if you go to Vintage Fair and buy SLink’s vintage 2-strap pumps, the feet are already included. So if you like, you can save some Lindens that way.

For this week’s color challenge look, I went Vintage Fair shopping. And ended up with this 60’s inspired look. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I think it turned out well in the end.

I’m posting this one a bit early, because tomorrow I’ll be on the beach somewhere. I promise I’ll try not to sunburn myself to a lobster-like shade 😉

Collaboration

collabor88, The Cart Sale and Magika‘s neko set.

collabor88

I finally managed to get to this month’s round of collabor88. The Anniversary Round, beause the event is now one year old. Unfortunately, not only is the event extra large this month, so were the crowds… Anyway, I did get my hands on some stuff in the end!

One of the items for sale, is this jacket by fri.day. It’s “based”on the standard sizing system. Basically, it’s meant to have a very close fit, so the shape is slightly different. Trying the demo is a must for this one.

To keep this blog decent, I decided to wear a sweater vest by Somnia underneath the jacket. This vest is one of the items at The Cart Sale, that runs from Aug 15th – Sept 5th. As always, all the items at the cart sale cost only 10L. Somnia has several fatpacks up for sale. So yes, that means you can buy fatpacks for only 10L each! Not a bad deal I think.

Last new thing (wow, this is turning into a rather long blogpost for me!), are my tail and ears by Magika. I wasn’t really looking for a new neko set. But when your favorite hair store releases just that, you have to give it try, right? This set is made out of un-rigged mesh and matches the store’s hair textures.

One important note though: they are not animated. So neither the tail not the ears have any movement to them. So unfortunately that means that the tail looks like it has been starched. But if you want to make sure that your neko parts match your Magika hair, this set is perfect for you.

Tyrian Purple

… week 33 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Tyrian Purple

When I saw this week’s color, I immediately knew what I wanted to wear. But then I realised I had already worn it for Dark Raspberry *facepalm*. I haven’t looked at the RGB values of those two colors. But they have to be pretty close!

Though I did go shopping for this week’s outfit, none of the items I’m wearing are new releases. Ever since I’ve returned from holiday, I’ve been trying to catch up with all the ongoing events and new releases. But there are just too many! So many new shiny things to buy…

Not that’s really a punishment 🙂

Our vacation is now officially over, so I’m now busy catching up on chores. Like climbing mountains of laundry… my favorite hobby… Anway, because of all that, I’m late with this week’s color: another yellow.
