No worries, it’s purely about the lights in these pics. It’s dark and I love to work with blue light, because it gives that, je ne sais quoi of gloom without being downright depressing, if that makes sense? I have been over The Arcade for years now. I remember the days I would go SO broke trying to get those coveted gacha rares, but to be honest, I have also always hated gachas and I felt that in general interest in the event was dwindling long before the ban on gachas. Those insanely talented creators who would made amazing sets that would keep you playing until you literally had no L$ balance left, they left the event long ago, and nowadays, yeah… nah… not really. However…. when I saw that one of my favourite skinners, Amara Beauty was in this round, I decided to give it a try. Got in immediately, on day one. That should tell you something. I got lucky, because after 2 pulls on the machine, I saw a fat pack coming up! so I kept playing until I got it! I also got a few of Mutresse’s Naughty Elves, simply because I adore Mutresse and then left as fast as I could.
And isn’t she gorgeous? Her name is Carmelia, and I am wearing her on LeLUTKA‘s River. yes, Lelu’s gorgeous androgynous head is a total beauty with this skin! I added some moles from Jack Spoon‘s Boheme set and a subtle chin dimple from Saxo. Today’s eyes are the Influencer eyes from Avi-Glam and my hairbase is Wispy Bangs hairbase from Angel eyes, new out at Level. From Fameshed, which has also opened today, I picked up the Polly slip dress and cardigan by Amias.
For my final outfit and look, I went full drama. The outfit is by Avec Toi, the Artemis blazer and vest. and I am wearing the Ruby pants underneath, also from Avec Toi. Initially I was wearing the Ruby blazer instead of the Artemis blazer, but I wasn’t completely feeling that look, so I went over to the shop and see if there was something that fitted my mood better for today. Got immediately approached and complimented in that over the top way that I think only SL subs do, as if wearing latex instantly makes you a Domme. No, it only makes you wear latex, k? I sometimes like wearing latex. it’s sexy! And the Artemis blazer with the vest and shirt, offers a bit more contrast than the Ruby blazer. For my makeup I kept it classic. I’m wearing the smokey eyeshadow which came with Amara Beauty‘s Callie skin, and I added the BOM shading from Influence‘s cheek deformer. My lipstick is by Dernier, the Marilyn lipstick. My hair got did, and it’s now the Cosmetized Melody hairbase, which are lovely fingerwaves, and I added the Bloom beret from Opale. My sole piece of jewelry is Yummy‘s Solitaire ring. I love that ring, It’s gorgeous! My shoes, again are by Gos, the Charlene patent pumps and my wine is from Chicchica!
