Fantasy in Pink: New from Creative Kaoz

This is another thing I should have blogged ages ago and did not. This is one of those sets that is hella fun and has ZOMG oogobs of pieces. This is partially my fault as she kept showing it to me when she was making it and I kept saying "oh you know what would look cool!? This!" and then she'd go off and make that and 2 other things besides. So let me get with the pictures cause there are a lot of them.

So this is set one, which is a basic set with what looks like 13 pieces that come on multiple layers. The belts come in three sizes and if none of those work for you and you hate resizing prims, you can always go get her shape for free in her main store or the notecard that accompanies it to get the measurements so you adjust your shape. It sells for L$150.

Set two is the skirt set. The shrugs are in black instead of pink and you don't have the pants options that you get in Set 1. There looks to be about 11 pieces in this set and it sells for L$150. There are a few other sets put together for you and each cost L$150.

You can get just all the pants or all the tops or all the skirts or all the shrugs separately. Each set is L$150. Its not just different colors but different styles as well. I'm only going to show you the pics for the blouses and pants here.

I've saved the best for last. You can get the ultimate mega set with every color of every item on different layers. Here's a complete list of what you get in the ultimate set all for L$350:
*4 Shrugs, on the jacket layer, in 2 shades of black and white, a solid black and a gorgeous knitted pink. A prim clasp is provided to keep the edges together.
*3 feathered bodice tops, on jacket and shirt layers, black, white and rose pink
*3 sheer, 3 almost sheer and 3 lined lace bustiers, on the shirt and undershirt layers, in shades of white, black and rose pink.
*3 sheer, 3 almost sheer and 3 lined lace tops, on the shirt and undershirt layers, in shades of white, black and rose pink.
*3 ankle length pants, on the pants layer and the underpants layer, in black/ white stripes, rosepink/black stripes and black/black stripes.
*3 mid-calf length pants, on the pants layer and the underpants layer, in black/white stripes, rosepink/black stripes and black/black stripes.
*3 mid-thigh length shorts, on the pants layer and the underpants layer, in black/white stripes, rosepink/black stripes and black/black stripes.
*2 prim skirts, black/white, and rosepink/black stripes, in small, medium and large sizes, with prim belt attachments
*3 micro/underskirt shorts in black/white, rosepink/black stripes and solid black on underpants and pants layer.
*2 styles of prim belt, pink with black tabs in small, medium and large, worn on the pelvis and a broad belt in black/white, rosepink/black and black which attaches at two points: stomach and pelvis.
*A black hip scarf, on the skirt layer, with prim knot
*Le Beret in 2 sizes in black/black and black/rosepink worn on the chin
*3 pairs of dainty lace socks in white, black and rosepink
*Itty Bitty lingerie - bra and thong in sheer rosepink on underwear layer

So where can you get this fantastic thing? At the Creative Kaoz main store in Sylvina (SLURL on the right) or in her satellite shop in the Dark Eden mall -- 2nd floor.

Winter in Fairchang

The Fairchang Isles are undergoing a new look for the winter/holiday season and there's a lot going on in the community as well. Plans are afoot for for a Christmas Boat Parade around several sims. This is being planned by "another resident" but I shall smoke out who this nefarious Christmas Parade Planner is and reveal the culprit.

Yet another resident is working on a contest for the best decorated parcel. My sources tell me this is none other than the infamous William Fairchang and he is offering prizes of L$10,000 and L$5,000.

Meanwhile, about that Expo center I told you was in the works -- we are still plotting and scheming a good design for it. So while we are doing that, Pituca and Garth decided to turn it into a winter wonderland recreation area.

That's me at the Fairchang Expo sim wearing Ookami Ningen's Chanel Russian Sable jacket with Dark Eden Nu Kua skirt and Metis skates. Behind me is the large flaming ring you can jump through and if you do you get your name in lights -- or at least on a list of people who have accomplished this feat. Also on location is a Moopf vendor so you can buy skates right on the spot.

That's me again skiing down a mountain. And just like in real life, I suck at skiing. But you might not. There's a vendor where you can buy William Fairchang's skis right on the site.

And as if that was not enough, Fairchang Vista, Wharf, Lido and Balboa -- where the public parks are, have also been winterized. Previously I thought that was something I did to my car but the Fairchangs have reinvented the term.

The public park on the Fairchang Vista sim.

So how, you might ask, can I get in on this. Well the public places are there for all to enjoy (the expo sim and the public parks) but you have to be a Fairchang resident to get in on the boat parade and decoration contest. However that's never been easier or more affordable than right now. The bargain plot hunt continues through the month of December at Fairchang.com. Some plots have been reduced to very low prices (ridiculously low or so sayeth the web page) -- all you have to do is find them. So if you are in the market for land that comes with a built-in community, the excellent service the Fairchangs are famous for, as well as value that can't be beat -- go check out Fairchang.com.

p.s. to find the Fairchang sims mentioned above, just map Fairchang Expo, Fairchang Vista, Fairchang Lido, Fairchang Wharf, or Fairchang Balboa.

Ice Dancer -- New from Ookami Ningen

These ice skating outfits are to die for. They look so good with just normal boots or shoes too -- you don't *have* to wear the skates with them. This 13 piece set includes sweater, sweater shorts, plain and fur collars, plain and fur cuffs, two skirts and a pair of skates with the foot base. This is the first collaborative effort from Zorena Deckard of Ookami Ningen and Etain Peregrine of Dark Eden.

Zore has her wonderful fur around the collars and cuffs and the outfits can be worn with or without. And I think they come in all 8 of the Dark Eden standard colors to match the ice skates. Anyway right now you can get these for L$300 at Ookami Ningen on Dark Eden Island. Just search for either or use the SLURL on the right. They will be available at Dark Eden as well next week.

I've been away for a bit and came back to such sad news. I didn't know Ginny well but the couple of times I'd interacted with him were good times and I knew him not only as a very talented designer who owns my closet but also as a man of honesty and integrity. Ginny left a lasting legacy and the clothes I have from Dazzle and Last Call are one of the most treasured things in my inventory and I know that's true for many others.

My deepest sypmathies and condolences to his family, his friends, and all of us who mourn his passing.

RIP Ginny. We will all miss you very much.

Vivi's Recap of CSI: Second Life

Hello world! I was in a wedding over this past weekend and my life got somewhat consumed by the wedding. Then I got sick. However I appear to be much better and back on track so I'll break my hiatus by bringing you a recap of the most talked about fashion event in Second Life history. No I am not talking about the Armidi opening. I am talking about nothing other than the TV show CSI and its Second Life contingent.

I know some of you haven't seen it yet and since it contains spoilers, I've thoughtfully put it on the blog that doesn't go to FashionPlanet and will link to it. One day I have that blog on FashionPlanet and not this blog -- but today is not that day.

Vivi's Recap of CSI: Second Life. BEWARE! HERE BE SPOILERS!

A Formal Affair -- My last regularly scheduled DJ gig

I've been DJing a lot over the past year. I've worked at T1 Radio, Radio Radio, Phreak Radio, Bare Rose, The Blarney Stone, The Velvet, Activ8 and various other private events. With all this DJing I suppose it was inevitable I would burn out.

At the beginning of September I informed the last of my remaining DJ employers that I would be taking a long break -- possibly forever. Although forever is unlikely. What is more likely is that after a break I'll do special shows here and there. Be that as it may, tomorrow, September 29, which, appropos of nothing, also happens to be my mother's rl birthday, will be my last regular show. Good grief could I possibly get any more maudlin? Lets cheer this blog up!

So tomorrow night I'm gonna do one more rip roarin kick ass show to celebrate my new found freedom yippee! I'd love it if you all joined me. Its at Active8's Martini Lounge from 7-11pm SLT. I play big band, swing, and blues. Formal attire or at least evening wear is required.

Come and jam with me one last time.

Auld Lang Syne

I've quit all my regular DJ gigs. I'm really sorry to have to do this but its just getting to the point where its more like work to have to show up every week and, well, I already have a job. Two if you count the business management stuff.

I'm on really good terms with all my employers and you might see me picking up a guerilla show here and there when I start jonesin for the DJin. But for now, I need a long long break.

So today is the last day for the Blarney and T1 and next week will be my last Formal Affair with Activ8. I'll put the times here and there's SLURLS on the right-hand navigation pane or you can IM me for a TP.

More pics of the Chained Seduction Set by DMMDI

Yesterday I introduced the Chained Seduction set from DMMDI but I thought the packaging ads really didn't do the set justice. So I asked Charissa to send over some of the modelling pictures she used to create the packaging so y'all could get a glimpse of the absolute hawtness of this set. Thanks to Ali, Etain, Naeko and Dori for posing. You ladies look ravishing.

I think I might have forgotten to mention that the steel bits on the Caligae Infernis shoe/boots are color-changing -- Neako shows this to great effect in these pics and I just love the black bottoms on the pink straps -- it gives you an idea of how creative you can be with this set.
