A few of my Favorite Things

SSS: Favorite Things 04

So, I've been working my butt off trying to finish up a new release, and it's coming along nicely. But sometimes I just have to take a break. And a new release from one of my favorite designers came along and gave me the excuse I needed. :D

My boots, let me show you them!

SSS: Favorite Things 03

These gorgeous things are by Erpla Prieto, the creator behind Periquita Shoes. I've loved her shoes forever, but there is a special place in my heart for BOOTS and these are the first full boots she made. I love them! They come with a nifty HUD that lets you change allll sorts of textures - the trim, the sole, the main shoe ... there's even these really adorable little bows on the toes that you can have show in a bunch of different colors ... or not! I picked colors to match the dress, but there's a whole bunch others, all pretty. But don't take my word for it - take this TAXI and go check out her demos for yourself.

I'm ALSO wearing the awesomest socks ever, "Stripey Socks" by Paisley Mizin of Sock Shop. You see, I LOVE socks, both real life and SL. So when I found Paisley's shop I kinda freaked out and bought most of them. And there's a LOT of them. They're all funky and colorful and full of win, so go check em out! At 30L a pop, I think you can afford some new socks!

Moving up ...

SSS: Favorite Things 05

This dress kicks ass and takes names, and miss Stringer made it. AND it's FREE - it's the Stringer Mausoleum's Macabre Hunt gift! Hurry and go pick it up, though - the hunt ends on the 6th of October!

I'm also wearing one of the fabulous skins by one of my good friends, Evangeline Schism of SchismPhrenic.

SSS: Favorite Things 01

She makes some of the best Eloh Elliot and Sezmra mods on the grid, in my opinion. You know, it's actually kind of hard to find well done skins, mods or not, that aren't just "normal" (and, frankly, kind of bland in the makeup department). Although this one I've got on, "The Devil Wears Python", is one of her more tame ones, she's got plenty more at her store that are a bit more funky :)

I'm also wearing one of my own Plasmid eyes "Honey" - it's still available at my shop FOR FREE with a couple other Plasmid eyes (there's a whole other pack of them in my SL group too). I'm pretty happy with them ... enough so that I may even make a whole line from them, so keep your eyes peeled for that sometime down the line. :)

And last, but never ever least - my favoritest hair of all time -

SSS: Favorite Things 02

"Ruina v.1" ... yes, you read that right - it's named after me, so neener neener ;P. It's actually the hair style of a character of mine, and I found that I couldn't find anything like it on the grid. So I had a pow-wow with Helena and she used her magic and whipped up this beauty. It was love at first sight for me - chances are good if you run into me, I'll be wearing it. You know you want it too - go pick it up here :)
