There’s a brand new label to look forward to here in SL! It’s called Mulloy, and is started by an amazing entrepreneur Thomaz Mulloy (cheltn098). Thomaz is an entrepreneur because he’s been doing lots of things in SL, and now he’s begun to take on designing. The Mulloy woman is one who loves the simplicity and luxe of classic Italian design.
His first release for Mulloy is a simple yet beautiful mermaid gown which comes in 4 colors: ice, navy, nude and onyx. In this photo, I have on the navy version and I chose to style it with a pearl necklace and matching bracelet, to stay true to the Mulloy vision.
Please do check out the Mulloy store, and support Thomaz if you love the Milano gown as much as I do!
Love, Kai

#100 – 冬

And so, just like this, I’ve reached my 100th post! Thank you so much everyone, for sticking with me from the beginning, when I was still rather inexperienced with blogging and decided to start doing this because I realize this was actually as fun as modeling itself, perhaps even better cos it’s much less stressful haha. I’m so glad that I’ve been given the opportunity to show you guys my point of view and what my style was like and it would please me so much to know if any one of you took cues from me. Well so for this 100th ModelLook post, I decided to do a photo shoot with a theme that I always loved and enjoy doing.
If you remember, I blogged the Silvery K hand fan in the previous post, and I am proud to announce that I am now an official blogger for Silvery K! In this post, I’m wearing the Saya kimono, a 2014 release for the 2015 New Year. It is a dated release, considering that it’s about one year old, but it’s their latest kimono release, with a new release coming round the corner in time for New Year’s 2016. Also, the umbrella comes from Silvery K too, and there are 10 different versions you can choose from to match your kimono. It comes with a script so you can open or close the umbrella, as well as a few poses that you can make use of.
I always try to pick a hair that fits with the kimono but not necessarily a hairdo that screams Japanese, so I picked the Louisa hair, a group gift by TRUTH HAIR, which is usually a yearly gift so it’s like receiving a Christmas present haha. The hair comes with a hud so you can change the hair colors, as well as the color of the hair tie, which isn’t visible from the photograph.
The hair accessories come from Ariskea, a brand that has recently made it into my list of favorites. The Kotori is actually the 2015 June group gift, which is now available again at the main store. Do note that you will need to pay 100L to join the group, something which I rarely do but I made an exception cos of the awesome group gifts released almost monthly. The Kotori gift contains 6 different accessories, and I’ve kinda pinned all of them into my hair because they’re so pretty!
The necklace is a freebie from RealEvil Industries, which offers two jewelry sets, as well as other items on the marketplace for free. The necklace can be customized, by changing the color of the metal, as well as the color of the pearls.I picked gold with white pearls to both complement and contrast the mostly red outfit.
Of course, with a Japanese themed shoot, Jackson and I returned to Miyagawacho Hanamachi & Okiya, where we did ModelLook #58, as well as ModelLook #39. The place was decorated for the winter, which happens to be the title for this post.
I love you guys so much for supporting me all the way, and I hope we have more to come as we reach #200 and beyond!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, today’s post is all about this Countess headpiece by Wicca’s Wardrobe, which has a very Asian look to it, be it Japanese or Chinese. The good thing is that it doesn’t have a specific look to it, so if you have an Oriental-themed shoot, this headpiece will be a great accessory. This look is rather simple and I was going for a more Japanese-themed shoot, so I accessorized it with the hand fan from Silvery K, a group gift from one of the underrated Japanese designers in my opinion. Do check out the Silvery K store when you can, there are numerous group gifts and also beautiful clothes to get for yourself, or for someone special this Christmas!
Love, Kai

So yellow is probably not a color that is very related to Fall but it was so pretty I decided to blog it for you guys anyway. This dress comes from AZUL, and a limited Sapphire version was shown at the Solaris Fashion Week previously but the good thing is, the other color options are available for purchase at their main store!
I paired the dress with a more neutral and simple looking shoes (took me a rather long time to find the right pair) from Baby Monkey. The Ola Sandals are their group gift, it’s still in the store and there’s a color change HUD so you can pick the color you prefer. I picked the Lindi earrings and necklace from BaUbLeS! by Phe to match the dress as well as the eyeshadow from .charme.
We shot at this sim called Stonehaven Maine, a peaceful town/fishing port with a nice view. Perhaps when you’re there you can stop by the diner, or visit the cafe by the jetty, where I took my photos at! Have fun exploring!
Love, Kai

#89 – Warrior Princess

I’m not whether many of you will get this reference, but having the knowledge of Xena and having watched a few episodes on TV in the past probably makes me kinda old haha. I was trying to channel as much Xena as I could to suit this look from Du Jour.
The Valkyra outfit by Du Jour is an exclusive to Penumbra Fashion Week and can only be purchased there. After the event it will no longer be in stores, so if you would like the outfit for yourself you gotta head down immediately. In particular I love the headpiece and the chest piece as they were made to resemble wings. Come to think of it, maybe I should have done a flying shot instead. I paired the look with gladiator boots from Miss Canning, which unfortunately has closed down in SL. However, lots of other stores sell the gladiator boots and you’ll be able to find one you like really easily. I’ve accessorized the look with a slightly more embellished and whimsical sword from Tabou Irresistible. Jackson got this for me from the Marketplace but it is also available in the mainstore, depending on whichever is more convenient for you.
The Willow hair from pr!tty is an old release and might not be available anymore. You would probably have to contact Karla Marama for enquiries. Also, her store will not be accessible these few days or even weeks as it is undergoing renovation, so the best way for everything pr!tty related should be directed to her. The eyeliner comes as part of the LeLutka Mesh Head package, done by Glam Affair. The lipstick, on the other hand is a release by .charme. for the Cosmopolitan Events. These few days are the last chances to get it at Cosmopolitan, but if you aren’t able to, they will be available in her store too after the event.
Speaking of appliers, the LeLutka mesh head has undergone a few updates and improvements. Not really sure if you noticed, but I have a slightly different expression than how I usually look like. With the new update, you get to customize your favorite facial expressions, ranging from mischievous to angry, so you won’t find the need to force your mouth open during the shoot itself. Everything is upgraded to fit within the hud, just a click and you’ll get the look you like.
This is probably gonna be my last post for Penumbra Fashion Week, I hope you guys enjoyed the other looks I posted and had a great time shopping for clothes at the sim. I had much fun doing photo shoots too and I’ll see you in the next one! 
Love, Kai

#87 – The Day After Tomorrow

Some futuristic fashion for you guys in this third post for Penumbra Fashion Week. This is the second time I’ve done futuristic fashion or a sci-fi themed photo, with the first being this look. I know lots of you will get the name of this post being a reference to the title of a famous movie, in which the world freezes over. And this was the theme of the shoot, not just sci-fi or futuristic but also with a bit of Snow Queen influences too.
The outfit which inspired this whole look is the Breyanna Dress by the ever so creative Wicca’s Wardrobe for this season’s Penumbra Fashion Week. The Raquel heels and the Grace headpiece are also available at the store, each sold separately. Wicca’s Wardrobe is well-known for her forward-looking and out of the box designs. I used to always visit her store and think how lovely it would be to try out a more avant garde aesthetic and blog for her. Well, the chance is finally here and I’m loving it! I put on a lighter skin tone, the Klara skin in Light tone from Elysium, to channel the look of a snow queen. The freebie Winteria necklace from Pure Poison enhanced the look as well.
The makeup from .charme. was kept really simple, leaning towards a more monochromatic tone. The hair comes from SOONSIKI or Besom; to be honest I don’t really know the name of the label cos it has been rebranded a few times and both names show up, but it’s a playful ponytail that looks as if it’s being blown sideways. Well, the hair was meant to look like you’re pulling it, the pose is included in the purchase, but in this case I’ve used it like it’s being blown in the wind.
And now I need to talk about the eyes. It was an unexpected moment with the eyes cos Jackson suggested I change my usual Amacci eyes to something blue or gray to fit the look. So I sieved through my inventory and I just tried on this pair of Fitting Guide eyes (I don’t even think this is a proper name for it), and it matched the look so well we used it. Now, this pair of eyes aren’t meant to be the usual eyes you get from IKON but it’s more of a thing you put on first before adding the mesh eyes to guide them into the right position. It’s kinda complicated and hard to explain but it was perfect for this look haha.
I hope you guys like this look and get inspired by it to create your own sci-fi look too. The next post comes tomorrow, and till then, happy shopping! 
Love, Kai

#86 – Queen Of The Sands

Hey guys, as promised, this is the second look for Penumbra Fashion Week, which has already begun!
Taking inspiration from this stunning Kosem Sultan outfit courtesy of Firefly, Jackson suggested this crazy huge sim called Kingdom of Sand for the photo shoot. I guess most of you know about this sim since it’s rather famous. Lots of roleplay going on there but lately the sim has been kinda quiet. Nonetheless, the place is a must visit for those who’ve never been there. Even for someone who has been there, there are still lots of hidden locations to be discovered!
This look is kinda straightforward, as I put on the complete outfit and just added a hair to complement it. The outfit reminded a lot of belly dancers or the girls of a sultan’s harem, so I picked a hair that looked appropriate, again from pr!tty. The Ariel hair is a voluminous hairstyle that’s great for really sexy and sultry looks (I hope this photo came across as that!). Also, I stopped wearing my black and white skin for this photo as I wanted a more exotic skin tone to fit into the context and make the photo look right. And for that I made use of Elysium’s Zoe skin. Elysium skins come in a variety of skin tones so you’ll find one you like!
Third post will be coming out tomorrow so do look forward to it! Till then, have fun shopping and do attend the fashion shows if you can!
Love, Kai
