Spice

Spice

This month’s theme for Uber is spice, focusing on South Asian inspired content. My most favorite theme so far!

Zaara has released something for the men this round. A Nehru suit and turban. Nehru suits consists of a hip-length tailored jacket with a mandarin collar often worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. I find Nehru suits extremely classy. Along with the suit she is also releasing a mesh turban which I am in love with. I plan to wear the turban with my female av as well. It makes a very unique head accessory. Both the turban and suit come in a variety of colors and if you purchase the fatpacks, you will get a nifty little HUD in there which lets you change their colors with just a click. Click here to see a picture of the fatpack HUD for the suit.  The top part lets you change the color of the jacket, the middle stacks let you change the color of the pants and the bottom cubes are the handkerchief in the pocket color and print choices. The HUD alone makes the fatpack totally worth it and fun to play with. Click here to see the fatpack HUD of the turbans so you can see all the different colors and prints available. Both of these items are at a special discount at Uber right now. Their prices will be raised once they are moved to the Zaara mainstore next month.

Maxi Gossamer has released a gorgeous new jewelry set for the ladies called Maharani at Uber this round. Maharani means ‘a queen of queens’ in Hindi and you will definitely look like royalty while wearing these.  The set consists of necklace, earrings, nosering and head jewel. All items are scripted so color change and with both gold and silver options.

I’m also wearing Hair from Truth and Skin from Glam Affair that are both available at Uber as well. I so love this braid from Truth, he’s outdone himself!

Glamistry

Do you guys remember Kalnins? They used to make some of my most favorite shoes and sunglasses back in the day. Then they kind of disappeared. Well just the other day, the Glamistry store sent out a message to previous Kalnins customers announcing how they have rebranded into Glamistry and sent out a free gift. I talked about it in this plurk.

As soon as I got that message, I teleported over right away to check out the place because I was such a fan of Kalnins. One thing I noticed right away is their wonderful HUD system. With each purchase you receive a HUD that lets you purchase additional colors (at a very reasonable and discounted price) right from the HUD. You don’t even need to go back to the store.

I picked up a pair of these gorgeous Hyacinth and thinking of picking up a few more colors. Most of their shoes come in versions that fit Maitreya, SLink and Belleza feet. Take the SLurl to the mainstore and try on some DEMOs!

The tattoos I’m wearing in both images are from Letis Tattoo. In the first image, the tattoo is not released yet but will be soon, in a few days. It is called Diwali and comes in a beautiful henna color. Letis Tattoo has appliers for many mesh bodies and mesh body parts. Keep an eye on the Letis Tattoo blog for the release date.

Poser

ManBerry was feeling left out and wanted to do the Yearbook Challenge too so I took him down to The Mens Dept and got him all outfitted for school. Somehow though I think he ended up looking like a creepy uncle, lol. So of course I gave him the Joey quote from Friends, “How YOU […] Continue reading →

Avatar in a Box Challenge

The lovely Vanessa Blaylock has started a new challenge called Avatar in a Box! She was inspired by Hugh Kretschmer‘s 2006 art/fashion piece Special Delivery where he lovingly assembled outfits and body parts in a box, which you can see in her post. I didn’t really want to cut up my avatar in pieces like […] Continue reading →

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →

!ndustry

There is a new club on the grid by the name of !ndustry. Harlow Heslop blogged about it earlier and then I saw her plurking about a party going on there, so I figured I’d go and try to kill my graphics card by taking a picture in the crowd. The club is owned by […] Continue reading →

Say Something

(click here for a raw shot) You may have noticed that I’ve been feeling a bit horny lately. Horns in this post and also my Warrior Princess post from the other day. I’ve never really worn horns before, but I’m kind of having fun with them now. Now I’m no expert in horns, but these ones seem […] Continue reading →

Berry Nice Shoes

I don’t think I’ve ever written a “berry” pun in my titles before so hopefully you’ll forgive me this time, I couldn’t resist. The shoes I’m wearing are named Berry so you know, it had to be done. The lovely Lyrical Ember asked me to blog with her and since I’m on this journey to […] Continue reading →

When I saw the bottle I got inspired and decided to do another shot for my Bare […] Continue reading →

Meet My Bratty Nephew Ron

Inworld he’s known as coolron28 and on plurk he’s known as RonZoon or whatever display name he has chosen that day. He’s the brat that charmed me with his adorable, witty humor and made me want to adopt him. I’m not sure how he became my fake internet nephew, but all I know is one day […] Continue reading →

Chandni

In Sanskrit, the name Chandni means moonlight and it’s one of the names my father uses for me when he’s being especially endearing. Since I have been begging Ms. Zaara Kohime to make a mesh lehenga for me for about 2 years now, she said that I get to name it. So here is the new […] Continue reading →

What’s in a Shape?

Last month I released a standard second life shape directly to my marketplace store. The only reason I did that is because people kept asking about my shape and so I thought I would experiment and see what I could come up with. I didn’t expect to, but I sold quite a few of them.
