(Photographer: Elysium Eilde, Models: me and some random dude)
So I have to admit, I am really excited about the upcoming Festival of Sin event which will be a celebration of the 7 Deadly Sins. The naughty side of me cannot wait to see it all. That’s why I was really excited when the event organizer and owner of Exposeur, RubyStarlight Writer, asked me and the random dude to pose for the Sloth and Gluttony shot. She basically told us to be a filthy, trailer trashy couple, we did well, no? :P I also kinda love the little pizza & biryani gut Mr. Gluttony has going on there.
The event will run from February 18th till March 3rd, which is still a while a way but I thought I would throw some questions to Ruby so y’all can get some more information about it and we get an idea of what we have to look forward to.
Strawberry Singh: Who are the organizers behind this brilliant event?
RubyStarlight Writer: Organizational duties rest on my dainty shoulders. However, I’d really have nothing spectacular without Annette Voight doing a lot of building and custom textures for the SIM and Elysium Eilde doing the logo, ad, and all the promotional photography. It’s a group thang. No, wait… not *that* kind of group thang…
Strawberry Singh: How did you guys come up with the theme?
RubyStarlight Writer: The theme is something I’ve had in my head for awhile… you know, being an unapologetic sinner and all. And I have this weird OCD habit about categorizing things. I’m such a perpetual planner that I break everything down into little bits and parts and so I’m kind of obsessive about something like the 7 Deadly Sins or the 4 Seasons or movie genres… or ranking my friends from most awesome to least awesome… it’s really actually pretty out of control… I should get some help.
Strawberry Singh: Are the designers required to make exclusive items just for this event?
RubyStarlight Writer: The items won’t be permanently exclusive, so I guess by definition, no. Each creator is required to make at least one item for the event, inspired by their assigned theme (one of the 7 Deadly Sins), and release it at the festival. Once the event is over though, the designer may choose to place it for sale in their store.
Strawberry Singh: What are you most looking forward to?
RubyStarlight Writer: I’m most looking forward to people EXPERIENCING the event. It’s not just about the shopping. I’m working on placing a lot of hidden features, alleyways, rooms and interactive experiences for people to explore and discover. The first week of an event is a fight to get in and shop, but I hope people will come around the second week as well to explore, take photos, and just have fun.
Strawberry Singh: Will this event be an ongoing thing we can look forward to each year?
RubyStarlight Writer: I think so. I’m having A LOT of fun planning and building and scheming. I can’t make any promises because I really can’t possibly know where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing this time next year, but I do have a vague outline for 2 more elaborate events like this one this year as well, so I think it’s likely. I’ve decided to actually put together an “official” event production company again to do the ones I’ve got planned, which I’ll make official once this festival is over. I almost wanna tell you what the next event is… but… nah.
Strawberry Singh: Do you have any requests from those that will be attending the event?
RubyStarlight Writer: Two things:
- Don’t come if you have sensitivities to blood, violence, sex, drugs, and other general debauchery. I am not holding back at all with the design of this sim, and yes, some people may get offended if they can’t handle the rough stuff. It will be an Adult sim, and I am not afraid to show it. Consider it NC-17.
- We’ve got about a billion textures and scripts and everything else, so we’re limiting access to only 40 people at a time. Maybe less… we’ll have to see. I expect complaints about that, but having something unique and interesting was far more important to me than having something boring but highly functional, so there is a need to keep the number of people on the sim down a bit. There will be two whole weeks to get in and get the items that excite you, so if people can be patient, they will manage to get in and move around just fine.
And there you have it! I am SO looking forward to this event, don’t forget to mark your calendars!

There’s a few important things I wanted to talk about in this post, first I’ll start off with the Berry poses (that are named after yours truly) created by Takeshi Kiama of Frozen Panty (lol @ the store name). Keshi is absolutely phenomenal at everything he does, from his blogging, to his pictures and now he has started to make some very creative poses with props. This pose set is called the Berry pose set and it’s a very “spring-themed” set. The set comes with six poses and there are two single berries along with a bunch of berries that attach to your left and right hand. There is also a lovely basket full of strawberries that is included. The pose set should be in the store today so make sure to check it out. Thank you Keshi for naming this adorable set after me! :D <3
I was also fortunate enough to pose for a few other pose sets he’s recently created that I thought were just genius. Check out his flickr for all the details and join the Frozen Panty flickr group to share your pictures.
The other very important things I wanted to talk about today was the closing of Tiny Bird and Second Style. I was very saddened by the news of both closings. Not only because I adore the creator of Tiny Bird, Autumn Hykova, but also because she continuously created quality content for so many years. Her adorable dresses, hairstyles, hairbases are still some of my favs in my inventory. I wish her well, you will be missed Autumn. <3
Second Style is one of the first magazines I read as a newb and I was just in awe of all the glossy pictures and gorgeous avatars that resided within it. I am so happy I got the opportunity to be a part of it for two issues. I wish the Second Style team the best in all their future endeavors! <3

One of my most favorite jewelry stores is having a big sale! You get 60% off EVERYTHING in the je suis mainstore right now! It’s actually a thank you sale because je suis won the “best newcomer” GLANCE fashion award. But the sale ends today so take the slurl right now before it’s too late!
The gorgeous lace gown is from Nicky Ree and it’s just one of the many items out at Fashion for Life. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Fashion for Life yet, go soon because it ends on the 22nd. There is so much to see and before you go you can check out this well-written blog post about combatting lag.
I’m a big fan of eyeliner in RL, I wear it often. In fact, one thing I love about one of my favorite artists, Shirin Neshat, is her dramatic eyeliner. I tried to emulate that one day when I was playing around in photoshop and ended up with the above result. It’s nothing fancy but I like it! :D Then today I noticed that the group gift I had sent to my group a few weeks ago had vanished from notices and I felt bad. So I thought, why not just send this eyeliner for fun. :P It’s in my group now in the notices if you are interested in picking it up. Sorry boys, not sure if this will work for you, but you can try LOL! (BTW, I didn’t photoshop the eyeliner, that’s how it looks on me.)

A quick post because I really felt so pretty in this skin so I wanted to share. The skin is called Emery, it’s from Grixdale and I am wearing the mocha tone. It’s a special Valentine makeup so go by the store and check it out now.
Also I’ve been wanting to take a pic on this sim for so long, I’m in love with it and there’s so much to explore here. The sim is called The Pixel Bean and I hope you get a chance to visit.
Have a great weekend! <3

This post is totally about me being all excited like a little girl in a candy store! Not only was I asked to pose for a vendor for this fabulous new Plume hair, but Mr. Lulu Jameson took my picture for it. It always feels nice when someone actually wants to take MY picture and not the other way around. LOL Plus, I have always loved Lulu’s photography, his work is just breathtaking. And I am also loving the new Plume store, their hair is so different and fanciful.
This new pearl hair is very elaborate and comes with some very neat options. It’s scripted so with just a click you can easily resize the hair and also change the appearance of the pearls. The pearl earrings I am wearing actually come with the hair as well. The hair comes in 15 different color options and some are multi-colored to give it more of a stylish, high fashion look. It’s perfect for a night of ballroom dancing to match your lavish gown.
Fauve and Lulu also created a Plume magazine on issuu.com and one of my blog pictures ended up there, totally exciting!
