Hi everyone, so I’ve begun blogging for an event called Method Village. Well, it’s technically an area, but the event also shares the same name and it has already begun and lasts till the 25th of each month. In this post, I’m featuring the Ara sun dress from BENDER, one of my favorite labels.
With the first look on the left, I styled it with the Ema hair from pr!tty, as well as the overknee socks by AviCandy, which comes in system, and appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza and Omega, so it fits almost everyone! I topped it up with the oh-so-elegant Reverie wraps from fri. from this month’s ~uber~ event.
For the second look, I chose a different colored dress paired with the same hair, and styled it with the Lima platforms from KC Couture, which has a color hud with 40 color options so you’re able to customize it to your heart’s content!
Let me know which of the two looks you prefer in the comments below!
Love, Kai

#90 – Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This

Or are they? I absolutely cannot imagine if I had to live this moment in a dream, though I guess a few of you would have experienced something like this or something close at least. For these few weeks bloggers are slowly posting more fantasy or horror looks cos Halloween is coming soon! Lots of fun things to do in SL, to explore, to shop, to just simply have fun with friends, you’ll be amazed at what SL has to offer.
So FasterPussycat has a Halloween photo contest where all you need to do to join is to put together an outfit wearing FasterPussycat, Velvet Elvis and/or BENDER, and shoot your photos at the mainstore sim. And so I gave it a shot (pun unintended and besides, Jackson was the one who took the shot) and here’s what we came up with!
The most important part of the outfit is from BENDER, the nightshade lace bodysuit in white, which is also part of BENDER‘s fall release and can be found at the mainstore. I matched it with a vintage-looking hair, the steamer hair from .Olive. as I was envisioning a classic horror movie look, envisioning Psycho or something along the lines. And as you can see, I’m still playing around with facial expressions which is in the latest update of the LeLutka mesh head. If you haven’t gotten the update, do head down to the store and hit the Redelivery Terminal to get yours.
I gotta thank Jackson for taking part in this shot too. He even affectionately calls his evil clown avatar Hank haha. You guys are spared from Hank’s front view, cos it is really frightening if you were to see him, and him wielding that knife is guaranteed to give you a genuine expression like mine.
If you guys have time, do try to take part in the FasterPussycat Halloween photo contest, there’s just a few days left (the deadline is midnight on 31st October). Good luck and sweet dreams!
Love, Kai

Omg it has been so long since I last blogged. It has been a month, I think! Well I have been rather occupied with RL so I’m only on SL for a few hours each day.
Besides I have also embarked on a few projects. The first, is that I’m now a model for the TEOM Magazine! The Evolution of Model (TEOM) Magazine is a rather young publication company so it’s great to work with them and grow in experience along with them. You’ll be seeing me in a spread done by Jackson in the October issue of the magazine so do watch out!
The second project, or rather, the second job, is with the prestigious BOSL Magazine! This time, my role is not a model, but a writer. For my first publication with them, the October issue too, I’m in charge of two articles! The first is a Top 5 Halloween List where I recommend the 5 exciting things in SL to do next month, and the other article is about a new designer, where I have featured the amazing Honey Bender-Auer and her newest label, Bender.
As such, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to Honey, for agreeing to do the interview and also giving me the opportunity to blog for her womenswear labels, both Bender and FasterPussyCat. The Carnivale Suit, which will be released soon, is part of their Fall collection, and features patterns and detailing on interesting textures, and also has a gothic theme to it. Taking style cues from Honey, I styled myself the same way. Dark eyeshadows from Nuuna, a latest release for LeLutka heads. It’s affordable, and comes in 10 different styles, from edgy to avant garde. The dark red lipstick comes from Shakeup!, a cosmetics brand that offers a wide range of lipsticks for LeLutka heads too. Whatever the style you want, they have it.
Contrasting the skin against the dark clothing, I chose the Europa skin tone from the default selection of Glam Affair skins and matched it with a dip-dyed red bob from Chemistry Hair. I absolutely adore the hairs from them, and I also got the Min hair from the label before this for my MVW Challenge, which, by the way I didn’t get through but it was a fantastic learning experience and I made friends!
You guys are also getting a sneak peek of the Fiero Sallow Heels from FasterPussyCat which will definitely be released soon in Honey’s store. I love those heels, they so playful but still edgy in itself so you can style them either way. Thank you, Honey!
More posts coming soon, I hope I do find time to style myself with cooler outfits so do check back often!
Love, Kai

Do you guys recognise this location? I think some of you might, those who are regular furniture shoppers. And if you did, you will know that it’s the sim where the Apple Fall mainstore is located. I first stumbled across this place when I went to Apple Fall to grab some freebie furniture (hehe yes you guys should know me by now), and they were highly detailed and sculpted. When I was there I explored the place a little and found this amazing yellow fields behind the mainstore. There are lots more pretty areas in the sim which I haven’t had the time to explore yet but if you guys are interested, you can!
Speaking of pretty, it has been a little while since I blogged some pr!tty stuff. This hair is called Daisy, and just like all the other hairs it can be found in her mainstore. The hairstyle is a sideswept style, I hope you guys can see it from the photo cos it might not be that clear. The sunglasses are a Hair Fair gift from LeLutka, I’m not sure if they’re releasing it in their store as a gift for their customers now though. 
Again, I’m blogging for BENDER, this Nala outfit was released for the Cosmopolitan Event last month, I think. But don’t worry, it can be found in the BENDER mainstore, which is just opposite the FasterPussycat store, also by the same creator. Remember when you TP over, the huge store is FasterPussycat, while the little home houses the BENDER store.
Not forgetting the elaborate honeycomb bracelet from FINESMITH, they have lots of group gifts in store so joining the group is definitely a good idea. Currently FINESMITH is undergoing renovation, so perhaps it would be wise to check in next week or so.
Go grab some stuff, and happy shopping!
Love, Kai

I hope you guys still remember this look, or at least part of it. For those who don’t recall, the jewelry was featured in an earlier post, Taking The Leap. Now, I’ve taken it one step further and styled a full look around the jewelry. Yes, I styled the look around the jewelry, no kidding.
First, I gotta let everyone know that the Aneko skin that I wear like almost all the time since I got my mesh head and body is now available at the Elysium mainstore, since the anyBODY event has ended. So if you’re like the skin and would want to own it for yourself, you know where to head to.
The amazing Garden State jewelry set from BaUbLeS! by Phe is an old release, like I mentioned before, but you should still be able to find it in the store. I can’t emphasize how much I love it. It looks really regal on anyone, and the way the jade complements the gold just makes me excited! Not forgetting the hair by D!va, which is kinda funny how it really fits into this whole forest/animal theme since it’s called Bambi anyway. It’s is unavailable, unfortunately, but there is a new group gift in the store, which you can find out more about right here.
The cute little lingerie-inspired separates is a original mesh release by BENDER, and I blogged another release by them earlier here, if you recall. I think the creators are really talented, and they always create outfits with interesting silhouettes and beautiful colors. BENDER is a relatively new label and I think it is really worth checking them out and supporting them!
And you might notice I have a friend in the photo too! He belongs to Jackson and he agreed to take part in the photo with me haha. I hope you guys love this photo as much as I do!
Love, Kai

Hey everyone, I’m back with a post featuring more items from the Event @ 1st which is still going on, right up till the 25th, so as of now there should be 3 more days to shop there! As you can see, this editorial is heavily influenced by science fiction, partly because of these two items by Lybra and BENDER. The first is the Tay Helmet by Lybra for the event. It lends an anime or sci-fi feel to your look, and that cityscape in the reflection of the visor makes it perfect for a dark angel in the city look (think Underworld, perhaps). I styled it with a fashion-forward bob with a slight ombre to give it a bit of color.
This amazing dress is by BENDER, and it comes in a few different colors. This is the silver option, there’s also copper and gold. It has a brushed metal look to it, which was also why I chose to style it with the silver Tay Helmet, and picked a whitish skin tone with a red lip. BENDER is a relatively new label by Honey Bender-Auer (honey.bender), and releases their own original mesh clothing, so it’s definitely worth checking out!
This post is also my chance to show you the Lara mesh body a bit better. The collarbone and elbows are way better than the system default avatar, so if you’re deciding on whether to get the mesh body and mesh head, I would say that it is a good investment if you intend to stay with this look for a long time. I know I would, and that’s why I decided to get it!
And remember, the Event @ 1st is still on till the 25th, so hurry down while you still can before the next round begins!
Love, Kai
