Last week Maxi Gossamar dropped one of her new mesh jewelry sets on me and said that she created an indian themed set for one of the Miss Virtual World contestants this year. I didn’t get a chance to try it on till just last night and I instantly fell in love with it. I really feel like royalty wearing this set. It’s available in white, red and black pearl versions with a gold metal. It’s already up on marketplace as well.
The jewelry and dress from Gizza were pretty heavy so I wanted to keep the skin simple. The skin is actually Tuli! Yes, Tuli Asturias has returned and her mainstore is on the cupcakes sim. She is currently still setting up her store but it is open and she has 4 skins available there. I am wearing Helena in powder tone.
I was listening to one of my favorite songs, Habibi, and this picture just automatically kind of created itself. A quick Arabic lesson for those wondering, Marhaba is a greeting or another way to say hello and Habibi usually means my love or someone very dear to you.
Now on to what I’m wearing. I’m sure you guys know I am totally in love with the Glam Affair mesh eyeliner. I can’t seem to take it off and wear it with almost every look now. That’s why I was really excited to see the new glitter versions of these eyeliners. They are available in the store now so take the slurl and try them out. You are going to see these on me quite often!
Zodiac came back for another round last week bringing in sensual Sagittarius this month. I fell in love with the Kelpie’s Bridle from Evie’s Closet. It’s just my kind of jewelry. I love the way it pops on the new Amberly skin from Glam Affair in Africa tone. Amberly was just released today in 6 gorgeous tones. I love how rich and luxurious the Africa tone looks on me. I know I tend to change skins around often for my blog posts, only because I try to feature a variety of creators but I honestly have to admit that these days Glam Affair just feels like home to me. I feel like they fit me the best on my shape and in any tone. If you haven’t had the chance to try a Glam Affair skin as of yet, take the slurl and try on a demo now.
Finally, I just wanted to give a quick mention to two contests that are going on that I thought you guys might be interested in entering for fun (I love contests myself, they really help challenge me):
I wasn’t really planning on doing an image for Eid al-Adha today, but some of my friends on plurk convinced me to do it. So I decided to login and take a quick snap, but my goodness the grid was laggy today. Was it just me or does SL just hate my pixel guts?
Anyhow, I was listening to this song called Supreme Ishq. It’s part Farsi and part Urdu and so well done. It tells the true story of Anarkali and her love for Prince Nuruddin Salim. I’ve done an image about Anarkali before on my flickr here. What can I say…I love tragic love stories.
Check out more of my Eid pictures in my flickr set here. Happy Eid al-Adha to all those that are celebrating! I’m gonna go load up on some sugary treats now. <3
You guys don’t mind if I’m lazy with the credits today, right? Thanks. :D
Skin: Al Vulo
Mesh Eyeliner: Glam Affair
I decided I wanted to take pictures in this outfit in a somewhat exotic place and I came across Birch Island on Koinup Places. When I landed I realized it was a Gorean RP sim and I always try to respect the rules so I quickly looked for an observer tag. It wasn’t labeled so after clicking about 30 things in the entrance I finally got one and wore it and then took the teleporter down to the RP area. I started exploring and walked along this sandy desert area which was beautifully done. Then I came across this village, which I really wanted to enter; however, they had disabled flying on the sim and the big massive gate was locked. I cammed in and tried to sit on something so I could get in there but that didn’t work either.
Finally, I discovered that if I clicked on the gate itself, a menu popped up with a bunch of options to enter and one of them was “pick the lock.” Now I’m usually not one for breaking and entering but my curiosity got the better of me and I ended up picking the lock. I started walking around looking for places to shoot and I saw some very beautiful textures but then I was stopped. All of a sudden a bunch of people approached me and started asking me what I was doing there. However, I didn’t know what they were saying since they were all speaking French! LOL Luckily one of them could speak English and I felt bad, explained myself saying I didn’t mean to intrude I just wanted to take pictures for my blog, etc… gave the necessary links and then I was allowed to stay. They were very kind and asked if I needed any assistance. One of them even sent me a link to this youtube video which shows the sim and all those that RP there so beautifully.
As you can see from the video, there’s lots more to the sim than what you see in my pictures. I definitely had quite the fun adventure today. This is what I love about Second Life. I can meet new people and discover beautiful places with just a click of a button. <3
