The Stars Are Projectors

Welcome to August! We just had our first major rainstorm of the season last night and it was oh, so nice! It made this post even more perfectly timed, as it’s a predominantly cool color palette with rich grays and stone influences, all things that make me think of a rain-soaked city and rolling, rumbling thunder. Featuring items from Cosmopolitan, Illusion Point, Shiny Shabby and Manga Fair!

I’ve spoken before about the uncanny trickery that designers have displayed, seemingly reading my mind and releasing something fabulous right when I was looking for it. It happened once more with this wonderful skybox by cinphul, available at the current round of Cosmopolitan. I had been using a rather bare-bones skybox I’d snagged as a freebie from the SL Marketplace, so I was thrilled to find that the Pluto II model has a really clever design that allows it to fit my tiny, rectangular 512 sqm plot perfectly. (I think it’s called a parallelogram, if my memory of grade school geometry is accurate? But I just think of it as a “slanty diamond”!) Two walls are frosted glass, whilst the others have cool-toned, rustic textures. Check it out at Cosmopolitan, but be sure to get over there by August 2nd!

For a perfect pop of color, cinphul also came through with the Memaw’s Quilts collection on offer at Shiny Shabby. There are seven unique colors/prints to choose from, and you get six varieties in each pack – from perfectly draped options to quilts specifically meant for wall-hanging. My other wonderful, event-exclusive decor items may be found at Illusion Point, and they include the striking modern-fantasy design of the Demon Chairs by 22769 – Bauwerk (available in 3 different material options – carbon, metal and stone – and the colors black and white), as well as the perfectly sleek Ornate Candlesticks & Candles by Paper Moon (6 metal colors and 7 candle colors).

My uniquely charming bed was originally showcased at the Wizarding Faire, but it should now be available for purchase at Little Llama‘s mainstore, and it’s absolutely lovely! I really wanted some pops of pure white in this room, and I think it worked out beautifully. And I was rapt to find a truly unusual item in my inventory: the Kopernikus Star Machine by Ex Machina, which I believe was an event gift from the last round of We Love Roleplay. I didn’t see it in creator Hattie Panacek’s Marketplace store, but perhaps if you sweet-talk her nicely, she’ll offer it up for sale. Really is a beautiful piece that projects a bevy of soft, rotating stars on the walls, ceiling and floor of my skybox whenever I fancy!

And you know I couldn’t go long without chattin’ about fashion! My dress was just perfect for this picture – another stroke of wonderful luck! – and it’s the Nemesis by Figment. A beautifully dipped neckline, flirty hem and a stone-like cinch at the waist and I feel like an exotic, modern goddess of thunder! I was also dazzled by the gorgeous Samurai Head Piece by ERSCH, which comes in two separate attachments so you can get a perfect alignment and fit. I wasn’t sure if perhaps it was more of a bold, editorial piece than something practical, but I wore it around as I visited several Fifty Linden Fridays stores, and I really loved watching it bob along with my walk and how striking it looked. I’ve heard that every girl needs a great piece of statement jewelry, and I suppose you could say an accessory like this one will really turn some heads! 😉

I’m off to snatch some rest before a whirlwind of Mesh Body Addicts Fair coverage begins! The event kicked off today, and will be another one that’s may be very difficult to access in the early days, but your patience will certainly pay off once you get there, believe me. Hope you saved up for this month’s events, because in the words of my lovely Aussie friends, there are some real crackers! ♥

Alas, I have a two day weekend coming up full of a post or two, a hair dye party to get ready for KCON and I am just  happy to sleep a full 6 hours or so instead of having to rush everywhere. ” Enjoy the starry circus look.

A Sky Full of Stars

'Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart
'Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
'Cause you light up the path
I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do
'Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you
Because you're a sky, you're a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You're such a heavenly view…
To see what I'm wearing and for decor credits, keep reading!

you and all the stars are making my heart glow

Tableau Vivant released four new gorgeous styles for Hair Fair 2015 that I am showcasing in the pics above. I love that M4rilyn Magic did four completely different styles. Oh and brand new textures and huds for these releases too!

Scarlett can be worn with or without the hat. A beautiful bun at the nape of your neck makes this style just a complete stunner. I paired the lovely style with a brand new Pixicat dress from Kustom9.

Cara is just gorgeous with her beautiful crown of braids that sits on top of a long and flowing style. Emery released a perfect Maxi Skirt, Ariel, for Collabor88 that paired with their Seashell top fit Cara just perfectly.

Last Train Home is a sexy and short style that can be worn to match any number of styles. The Pixicat Aquatic dress  from Collabor88 is just perfect showcases just how sexy short hair really is.

Last but not least, the Ten style is long and parted down the middle. Love it. I paired it with one of the two latest releases from Foxes for Collabor88. The Splash dress is one of my favorite releases from this C88 round with the top of the dress just so perfectly feminine and girly and the skirt sparkly and super short. Perfect perfect.

Sophia Harlow
