Stockholm & Lima – The Arcade

Another Arcade sneak peek today.

I had the pleasure of photographing the entire Rustic Barn Party set from Stockholm & Lima available for The Arcade – September 1st.

Stockholm & Lima - Rustic Holiday Barn

The barn is one of the rare items ( the other rares being a fully color change version of the commons ) and I really love this build. The barn includes animated mesh blowing curtains, doors that open and close as well as exterior lights that turn on and off. It is also materials enabled.

You can see the animated mesh curtains here: ( please choose the option at the top after clicking the link to view it in the MP4 format as the regular GIF looks quite terrible quality wise….but it’s just a simple screen cap, no fancy editing ) Animated Mesh Curtains.

In addition to the barn there are colored ” collections ” to win to decorate for barn parties 😀

I am using the Festive color set in my photos and everything shown is part of the arcade gacha set.
(table, chairs, hay seats, ribbon candles and lantern lights).

You can see all the sets here – on the Stockholm & Lima flickr – and be sure to check out The Arcade when it opens ❤

More Arcade thingssss – sorry for all the teasers 😡

This time stuff from Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant:

Siren.

Tableau Vivant has the hair shown above – The Longfall Hair & Mermaid Headdresses.
With each gacha play you will receive 1 hair (with a regular and implants version) 1 color HUD and 1 headpiece.

I am including the official guide so it’s easier to see all the options:

Also the skin I am wearing is Liv from Glam Affair (in the large photo).
The Glam Affair gacha has 2 skins – Liv & Livvy available in 3 tones each. Artic, Asia and India.
There are 3 rares – both skins in the “clean” options as well as a secret rare *.*

I am going to show all the makeups for each skin, but in just one of the tones for each:

Liv  – in Asia:

Livvy – in India:

This post is kind of picture heavy, so on to the credits which are quite short 😛

3.14.14

I wanted to take a break from skin blogging to do a decor/landscape post.

I love the new Valiano set from Trompe Loeil available at FaMESHed and it makes up the bulk of the items shown in my photos:

3.14.14

The above picture was my first time experimenting with darker windlight settings but I am pretty happy with it. The Valiano set is materials enabled and I loved playing with the reflective lighting that bounced off it all.

In addition, Poser Pavilion by The Liasion Collaborative opens at midnight! I made the following pose and used it to show off some fancy attire 😛

. Timeless .

2.26.14 – Spring Cleaning!

More arcade previews today.

This time from What Next – The Spring Clean Gacha Set.

Spring Cleaning!

I am enjoying themed photos lately and setting up these little scenes… I am sure it’s just all the arcade cuteness inspiring me but regardless, I am having fun with them.

OH and… if you haven’t seen it yet the Official Shopping Guide for March has been posted so you can see ALLLLL the items being offered for all vendors: Shopping Guide March 2014.

12.10.13 – Dream Big

Doing something a bit different today and using a kid avy in this post. I figured it doesn’t really matter since I am blogging the decor anyway.

I was originally using my adult self but I liked it a lot more once I tried it this way…it’s kind of like a little girl dreaming of becoming a princess one day 😛

Dream Big

I have been wanting to blog the items from O.M.E.N available at the Arcade for a while and finally thought of this idea to show them off. I got EXTREMELY lucky with this machine and got all the rares without playing much…still not sure how that happened…but regardless these little castles are gorgeous. The detail is insane and they are re-sizable if you have a lot of extra prims you can make them huge ( since with mesh, the LI goes up if you re-size) but by default they are only 2-3 land impact.

The Arcade runs til the end of the month and with everything there being transfer (Christmas is right around the corner)  they make great gifts!

Here’s all the details:

More Arcade stuff today.

This time the Belleza skin Tara and Clawtooth’s Closer & Temptation hairs!

I did a fancy head shot as I normally do when I skin blog, and I really like this photo but I do feel like snow is attacking all my photos lately. I must be in the mood for snow 😛

White As Snow

I am wearing one of the rares in this photo, but all of the make-ups can be seen here in unedited shots as well as different variations of both the Closer and Temptation hairs – (The Clawtooth hairs – each machine contains 6 rares and 12 commons).

Belleza - Tara

The large photo on the left is the Rare #1, but the 12 in boxes are commons.

There are 3 rares total and they are the freckly ones. But I ❤ freckles:

Since it’s sometimes hard to know exactly what you are getting from a gacha I will include all the official gacha keys for this post so if you are on a quest for something specific you can just refer to the ads! I have been checking them like crazy lately to know what it what… so they do come in handy ❤

Patchwork Army

A few more Arcade sneak peeks today.
This will probably my last batch of sneak peeks before it opens officially on Sunday because I am not sure if I will be able to post tomorrow. (Need to start my Christmas shopping one of these days lol ).

Half Deer has created the adorable Patchwork Army sets for The Arcade.
Each set includes ears and a tail and there are 11 commons and 3 rares.

PatchWork Army

I am using multiple sets in my photos (from left to right) –
Toy Soldier (Rare), Vintage Love (Rare), Pastel Deer (Common) and Troublemaker (Rare).

I am also wearing (in two of the outfits) the new Cho hair from Tableau Vivant also available at The Arcade.
The 2 shown in my photos (in the first and last look) are commons – Brown and Teal Tips.

Here is one of the rares –

11.29.13

The Cho hair is adorable and the commons can be worn with little hairpins (there are two sets in each pack) or you can wear it plain as I have done in my photos. The hair pins and accessories on the rares ARE attached. So all that stuff you see in my single photo above comes on the rare (and only the rares) and is not removable.

There are 4 rares total as well as a secret color and 24 common colors.

Be sure to check out the Arcade Shopping Guide to get a look at ALL the items that will be available at The Arcade – December 1st.
