Circus Freak!

Wanna get freaky? Circus freaky that is…
Ya know how sometimes in SL, you stumble on things that are incredibly awesome just by pure dumb luck? Well, that happened to me today. I was following a link I saw on another blog, searching for this cool hair accessory the blogger was wearing, when I happened upon this awesome circus themed designers event going on @ the Le Cirque sim. OMG is it wonderful! Beautiful clown skins, gaudy carnival gowns, and freaky stylish hair, all over the place! Never before have I seen such a gathering of unique designers and designs! Needless to say, the second I bought some of the goodies I was itching to blog it. So here ya go…but FYI: this will be the first of several posts starring the fashions @ the Le Cirque event, because I didn’t want to overcrowd the post and wanted to give each look I found it’s own spotlight.

The first look I call The Circus Freak and is made up of the uber awesome, and detailed, Barlala hair and the incredibly creative Like a Rose dress; both from 3636 Couture.

I LOOOOOVEEEEEEEE this hair! Its like nothing I’ve ever seen before;part lion’s mane, part bearded lady, its simply an amazing creation and will have you channeling your inner animal diva in no time! Can you say RAWR? It looks very beastlike when partnered with these cool Demonic Eyes, from ROI.

This dress is also a very very interesting work of pixilated art. It manages to look like a copper colored rose and beastly fur pelts, at the same time. I lurve it!

So, if you’re itchin’ to look completely different from everyone else…(guaranteed! Grrr! Grrrr!) come on down to Le Cirque and indulge your inner freak!

Beautiful Bloom

Its spring at last!!!! Yusssssssssssssss! Who loves spring stuffs? Ooooh, oooh! I do! I doooooooooooooo! That’s why I was tres excited when my store, Frosting Ink, was asked to participate in a designers event called Beautiful Bloom that’s all about celebrating the glory of spring, via exclusive stuffs by selected designers. There are quite a bunch of cute stuffs in this event, so I’ll just show you my faves…

I think my top fave item of this event has to be Olive Juice’s Paper Blossom Pose Room. Menu driven, packed with uber cute poses, and filled with gorgy detailed sculpty paper flowers… it is simply to die for! I could have played in mine all day! As you can see…

I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this utterly adorable fairyesque dress from NUT that comes in three beautiful colors, light green, light orange, and pink. I have to say, the light green is my fave shade…and not just because it goes perfect with my Bounty of Spring tophat…I swears! *shifty eyes*

I also really dig this cute hair (which is color changeable by click) and this lovely vintage-ish flower print skirt from Wot? It looks awesome with this really cute flower print tank by one of my fave shops; (since way back in my noob days) Twosome.

Of course I couldn’t end this post without mentioning these super, super stellar poses called In Bloom by Olive Juice. The set comes with 7 different poses (only showing one cause I’m on a time crunch today, sorries) and seven little bouquet of flowers, each containing different poses. All you have to do is wear the flowers and you’ll automatically pose! How cool is that?!

Bursting into bloom

Around Last Christmas, I discovered a fabulous hair shop that sales some of the most beautifully odd hair I have ever seen in SL. If you’ve never been to *BC322 Skull&Bones*, and love crazy creative hair, you have no idea what you’re missing! Ever since I discovered BC322, and nearly cleared out my Linden account (hehehe), I have been meaning to blog it, but alas… life is crazy right now so it just kept slipping my mind. However, the other day I discovered there was a new hair in the lucky board… and OMFG is it cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!!!

Introducing the Yoi-Yume hair…

After stalking that damn board allllllllllllll day, I finally got it! Yusssssssssssssssss! Its been a long time since I have been a lucky chair/ lucky board stalkin’, cause I’m one of those peeps that enjoys waiting as much as one might enjoy a root canal without any Novocain, but I gladly waited all day for this amazingly awesome hair, and if I’m willing to wait that long when usually I get antsy just waiting in line at a drive-through IRL…that’s saying something.
Cuuuuuuuuuuuute hair now on the *BC322 Skull&Bones* lucky board!

This hair is silly/beautiful perfection and will totally indulge your girly girl pink lovin’ side. However, you might want to stock up on Lindens if you’re going to BC322 for the first time, because everything there is just as amazing. They have everything from hair that comes with a feathered birdcage for your head, to hair that looks like an octopus sittin’ atop your noggin’. Trust me, you’ll be overwhelmed by the sheer awesome that is *BC322 Skull&Bones* So what are ya waitin’ for, ya lazy arse? Go check it out nao!!!
