Al Vulo!, Severed Garden

Today I'm featuring Italian designers, the talented Berta AvroBubi Bolissima of Severed Garden and Hlin Bluebird of Al Vulo!, whose creations are great samples of quality and originality. 

Dana outfit from Severed Garden is perfect for winter times, it comes with accessories and boots, and also with a cute frost breath maker worn on the mouth that produces a frost cloud! How cute is that? 
It is available in various shades (shown in olive here) and boots are also sold separately if you want other color options.

A note on the pose: it's a recent release from Diesel Works, from the Shyla pack, including 11 beautiful and kinda dramatic poses, perfect for your artistic shots.

Outfit: Severed Garden - Dana (olive) - 290L
Pose: Diesel Works - Shyla 

Al Vulo Giulia - Severed Garden Dana

Giulia is the newest face from Al Vulo! Already available in the tan tone (and a special make up, blogged here, is the prize of the DIMH 3), it was released yesterday in the porcelain tone.
It comes in several make ups and each in many options: plain, cleavage, freckles, teeth, and eyebrows in different colors on tattoo layer are also provided. I really love teeth on Giulia, they are very nice and soft, not giving the "scary rabbit" look that sometimes comes out when wearing this kind of skin.

Here are my favourite make ups, showing the plain version on the left (no teeth on first row, with teeth on second row) and the freckled version on the right (same as before).
Pictures are not postprocessed at all and shot using the "Nam's optimal skin 2" windlight sky.

Skin: Al Vulo! - Giulia (porcelain) - 800L each make up, 2800L the fatpack.

[Hunt] Diamond Is Mine Hunt 3

Some beautiful hunts are running these days! I don't have enough time for complete overviews, so as usual I'll show you my favourite prizes. 

Diamond Is Mine Hunt comes to its third edition! It's organized by Sophistishapes, it lasts since November 18th till December 18th and involves 90 brands! You can find slurs, hints and pictures of all the prizes on the official blog

Skin: Al Vulo! - giulia* malice diamond hunt - 0L
Outfit: Tres Beau - Tres Beau DIMH - 0L
Hair: D!va - "Diva" (Type B)(Mercury) - 0L

DIMH 3 - Diva - Tres Beau - Al Vulo

Outfit: Angel Dessous - Pleasure Black - 0L

DIMH 3 - Diva - Angel Dessous - Al Vulo

Another prize I absolutely recommend is the one from AKEYO: the store offers 3 unreleased dance animations together with their amazing AO hud. I totally fell in love with this hud: it doesn't need any configuration, you just rezz it and add your animations, it will recognize them itself! No need to touch any notecard! And if it ever couldn't recognize the animation, a menu will ask you where do you want to place it. I have always wanted to create an original AO but my laziness prevented me to do so thinking to the huge notecard job... but now it's way easier! Furthermore, the hud has a dance option, where you can store and access your dances! Thank you AKEYO

Vintage Fair 2011 - Look #09

Today has officially been the worst day ever in my Second Life, crashing all the time with all viewers, not even mentioning trying to set graphics on high...

Anyway, after like 6 hours I managed to take a crappy pic of the outfit I wanted to show you today, from Ingenue at Vintage Fair.
Please note, the outfit is partially MESH, so you need a mesh enabled viewer to see it correctly. The hairstyle I'm wearing, from Lelutka, is MESH as well.

Outfit: Ingenue @ Vintage Fair - Ava Fuschia - 295L (demo available)

Vintage Fair 2011 - Look #08

Today's look features the beautiful outfit from League available in several colors at Vintage Fair.

Mesh warning: the shoes I'm wearing, from Nardcotix, are mesh. I think it's the first mesh item I've ever shown here, some others will come in my next Vintage Fair entries and I'm planning to share my thoughts about mesh sometime soon. Anyway, in order to see these shoes correctly, you need a mesh enabled viewer like Linden Lab's Viewer 3 or Firestorm Beta Mesh. There are also some mesh enabled v1 style viewers, although I don't have any idea about which ones.

Tales From Old World

The Gorean Room is an event similar to The Dressing Room but it's consacrated to fantasy and gorean fashion. Each round lasts 2 weeks, I'm not sure when this one started, so you may want to hurry, just in case.
Many interesting things are available, I'm showing the one I like most.

Rustic Girl in Grey is a low class outfit with some gypsy flavor, made of a sculpted top (no clothing layers), a flexi skirt, necklace and bracelet. The designer is Katrina Kristan, owner of Old World, a new to me store offering clothes, furniture and buldings for your roleplay needs. You can have a sample of her talent in the pic, featuring not only the outfit but also the beautiful medieval library available at the store.
