Guardian of Secrets

I always have to stop by Selina Forder's store every so often to see what new designs she has come out with. This time I was wanting to do a "darker" blog with the haunted forest Bewitched as the backdrop, so focused on finding something that would go along with this theme. I found a beautiful outfit mainly of velvet called Erestra. Under the name of the design were the words, "Guard of Secrets". I thought how perfect for a shoot at the haunted forest! The outfit has many details and features that make it simply lovely. What I always love is that most of these clothes come with pants AND a skirt, so very versatile! This particular outfit also comes with a gold belt holding a handbell and key to go along with the "Guard of Secrets" description. I took several pictures below so you could see the outfit in different views, with the skirt and pants, and with and without the optional belt. Also at Elvenbreath, I found some classic, but really pretty ballerina shoes that go perfectly with the outfit. The shoes come in many different colors.

Jaded Warrior

I hadn't been to the White Armory in a while and decided to go by and see their new items and any others that caught my eye. I was in the section labeled "Warrior" and that's where I found this beautiful outfit called Jaded Eclipse :) As all Bee Dumpling's gowns do, this one has so many options as far as skirt styles and pant pieces. It may be warrior gear, but it's truly a lovely and feminine choice.

Amazing Eyes by Fashism

Just about every day I'm amazed at the strides Second Life accomplishes with new products, fashions, skins, sims, and the list goes on. One of these great accomplishments is Fashism eyes! My friend SeleneLily was the one who told me about these amazingly beautiful peepers full of color and detail. There are many great designers of eyes in Second Life, but Ikon Innovia is by far the best I've seen. Every single color has just the right amount of light "reflection", tone intensity, and "flecks" within each eye to make them look perfectly authentic. What's more, every pair you purchase comes in small, medium, medium-large, large and extra large sizes. You also have a choice of several shades of each color from light to dark. Here is the description of Ikon's Sunrise eyes from the Marketplace:

'Sunrise' Eyes from FASHISM feature a richly textured, realistically rendered design that has been artistically crafted for a striking yet soulful look. Reflected in the eyes is a dawn sun rising over a hill, as seen through a lunette window, and represents optimism and new beginnings. Elements of the reflection are positioned carefully around the horizon line of the eye sphere, to catch the light and twinkle naturally at any angle and in a variety of lighting conditions.

Perfect and accurate description! Below are pictures of several of the many different colors Ikon offers. Please click the picture to see it in a larger size. These are actually the colors I bought for my own avie, so yes, I went a little crazy buying several shades! hehe I know you'll love them!
