Autumn Thoughts

Autumn is late in my country this year: I'm still wearing sandals and sleeveless tanks. However, nothing more than imagination can make me feel the spirit of the season, and this happened thanks to some amazing fantasy releases by Kouse's Sanctum and EMO-tions.
Kouse Singh released some stunning gowns, as usual available in many colors, but the one that hit me was "chocolate", a warm brown shade perfect for the upcoming season. They are available with trimming in gold or silver.

Gown: Kouse's Sanctum - Juniper Chocolate - 500L

Mirja Mills released an amazing set of autumn hairstyles for Modavia Fashion Week, as well as the matching outfits released in the store last Saturday. Those creations are really inspiring, embodying the essence of the season, as a spirit of the nature. Tattoo layers and accessories are included. I'm showing a selection of my favourites.

It will run from September the 16th till September 25th.

Alphabet Challenge - A - Goodbye Summer

So, my first blogger challenge! It's the Alphabet Challenge, where you are supposed to create an outfit using items which names (name of the object, of the store, of the shade) start on a given letter. Rules are not very strict, so you have some degree of freedom, and pose is not a must.
It will be interesting diving in my inventory and find forgotten great stuff or crappy things to delete!

I may be a bit late for the first round but still... letter A! (Keep in mind that Aoharu and Anexx were having a 50% off sale lately, which may still be running).

Alphabet Challenge - A - Goodbye Summer

Skin: Al Vulo! - Cloe * bohemiene -  milk
Hair: LelutkaSHOOP hair - AlmostGoth

Hogwarts Advice!

Sorry, apparently I can't help it these days! 

Since I missed the early applications and I will need to wait till they will be opened again, in the meanwhile I decided to focus on the appearence of my character. Going through a lot of issues, including SL totally breaking the shape I made her and forcing me to create another one, in the end I'm still doubtful about one of the most important things: her skin! I've been gathering demos from, seriously, *everywhere* and spent several nights trying them on, but I'm in a real impasse.  
I'm showing you the 2 face candidates for my character, Layla, who should be 13-14 years old. If you wanted to share your preference, I'd be very thankful ;-) Feel free to comment here or on my flickr
