Pose Fair 2014, Singles Part I

(crossposted from heyperina.com; please update your links!)

Today begins my favorite event of the year: Pose Fair 2014, presented by The Hottie Cooterati Experience! Don’t get me wrong, there’s many great events every month, and a special few rank very high in my book. But I have the most fun with Pose Fair, because to me, poses are what hold a photo together. Plus I get to stock up on my supply without having to run sim to sim to sim; it’s all on one. The sim will open up Saturday, April 19th (today!) at Noon SLT. (URL to be provided here once the event opens!)

I was lucky enough to get into the fair early, and spent more than I meant to. But that just means there’s a lot to preview for you. Breaking it down first is what I use the most – single female poses. Mien has a fun pose set out for mock selfies that comes with it’s own iphone-like prop to use. Fri.day and Marukin also both have new singles pose sets out, which any look at my archive here will tell you… they are among my favorite. Simple and clean, neither ever disappoint. A good investment for any photo-fiend!

I can’t go without mentioning the clothes, of course. ColdLogic has another spring set out, with three belted dresses available. And over at the 100 Block event, you’ll find these sandals from Reign – a new to me store with shoes that emptied my wallet. This hair from Magika is actually a modified version, but there’s now a proper short haired (no braids) version available called Shimmer, so be sure to pick that up!

Get it, cause it’s a blazer? I spend far too much time around a man who loves a pun. Anyway.

Tons of new and awesome around this month, starting with a change I never make: new skin! I’m so picky about what looks like ‘Peri’, my original and main avatar of 6.5 years now, that I’ve had about… 7 skins on her. Total. 2 freebies, 2 Belleza, & 3 League. Skin Fair 2014 has opened up, and League‘s offering the brand new Erin! With any new skin I get, I have to sit on it for a few days. I bought it, but went back and forth until about Thursday when I finally settled in. The brows are updated, the face has more sharpness to it (them lips!), and the body is now more consistent. Okay, that’s a nice way of saying the nipples now look similar from C up to D/E-cleavage cup, lol. Also, this month’s Collabor88 has a Back to Business theme, which lead to this inspired cute blazer/tank top set from Tres Blah. There’s about 5-6 different color/pattern combinations, and while they do detach, I can’t get enough of it as it stands.

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss) (New @ Skin Fair!)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes (Blue)
Hair: Elikatira – Spark

I’ve been back on a fashion binge as of late, much to the chagrin of my SL wallet. But when your favorite stores & events keep coming out with stuff like this? Who am I to resist, honestly. (Let’s forget about restraint right now.)

A new round of Collabor88 debuted on the 8th, and UFO & BCC teamed up to bring these holey jeans. Since they’re a special design concerning the texture & alpha, I did have to adjust my legs a bit so that they didn’t poke through. But I have a few specially adjusted shapes in my inventory anyway for these occasions, it’ll work! The inspiration this round is a space age theme, giving us gems like this Galaxias necklace from Noodles.

DeeTalez also release these adorable cardigans not too long ago that fit really well again my avatar, and I just love the way they drape. One of my favorite stores, and for a reason!

Lastly, this blog will be changing addresses shortly – please update your links to http://heyperina.com!

Dig Up Her Bones

FaMESHed is usually a solid bet for finding either clothes, accessories, or stuff for the home as far as mesh is concerned. Two things that stood out for me, had me really excited to get in on the 1st. COCO Designs has released this bomber jacket molded to make it look like your hands are in your pocket, no matter the pose or animation in your AO. There’s a variety of earthy colors, and comes with & without both a built in hoodie (full/cropped versions). These Fishy Strawberry pants caught my eye on Flickr, coming in both camo and solid versions. With the slim tapered fit, they slide so nicely right into boots, for which I know many have sorely wished!

Thick as Thieves

Not all of winter is about bundling up in big coats and scarves. Sometimes it’s about breaking out the sweaters and boots, with tights to keep you warm. For me, in Texas, it tends to be about layering, since it’ll be 32F in the morning, but 73F by 4pm! Anyway, the Seasons Story has opened up, and now that the crowds have made it through, it’s a great time to head over. Among a few things (including an adorable corgi known as Gizmo), I snatched this sweater from Tulip, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores. Ana was so kind to join me, breaking out her own UFO coat!

Keeping Warm

It all starts with a coat… a coat from Valiant. I must’ve shown it to my handsome manprop about 5 times before he realized how in love with it I’d become. But just look at it! The design is lovely, executed very well, and as predicted, he just looks so good in it. If I had a male character I played on the regular, I’d buy it for myself and wear it 24/7. Alas, I’ll leave it to Esau for me to fawn over, and instead house myself in this trenchcoat from League, which I might be a bit in love with, too.

Tunnel Vision

mayday

When I got too busy (well, too distracted) for blogging, I had a good handful of images I’d done and posts nearly ready to go. I should’ve just bit the bullet and posted back then, and while I’ve trashed a few tragic mistakes, there are a few I’m still very keen on. This dress. I’m so very keen on this dress. I coveted it for months before finally buying it back in May (original post title: May Day), and even this week, I’ve worn it for three days. As my friend Zero warned me, “it starts to smell.” Suppose I should change… tomorrow.

Bonus: an alternative shot I took without editing while playing around with Windlights

Tomato

One small, but significant change I notice in myself is my color preferences over time. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved blue. Blue has been my favorite, initially because it is my mother’s favorite as well. I hated red, yellow, orange. I think I had an anti-brown phase. Sometime in the last two years or so, my tune has changed. I still love blue, but I also really love deep reds, moreso in Autumn, but overall I’ve become a fan. The same can be said for orange. I’ve seen a few variations on the color “tomato, like this jumpsuit from Ricielli or a pair of everyday heels from Fri.day (not pictured because they don’t match). Despite differences in tone, though, I’m strangely drawn to it now. And maybe that’s one of the great things about SL; it just allows us more creative fashion exploration, and makes it so easy to evolve even the simplest of color tastes.

Spice

Pose Fair 2013 is nearly at an end (Sunday!) and I can’t let it slip by without showing off a few of my favorite finds (one top of the poses that’ll show up in future posts). I hadn’t heard of Apple Spice prior, so this one is a true discovery. I like the unique positioning in this sampling, and it shapes the avatar nicely. Granted mesh covers up joint issues much better than before, but still!

Pleats

Unintentional breaks are unintentional! Isn’t it a bummer when life gets to busy to pay attention to your creative side? Granted, I’ve been feeding mine a bit more in roleplay, and that’s good, too. But this… well this is different.

Not too much fuss with this, but it is an outfit I put together about a month ago for a post, and have worn it at least three times in a scene. I just love this skirt; because its HOC, it of course comes with a HUD that has two handfuls of options. This blazer is another of Emery‘s cute mesh releases lately, and the bodysuit from Secret Store, which has kept up a few cute texture-based clothes to go with adorable mesh they’ve been putting out.
