#91 – Nightcrawler

Another Halloween-themed photo shoot before the day comes! This time I was really inspired by the Julie gown from AZUL which comes in a Halloween version, complete with skeletal wings and little spiders crawling all over. I would say that this gown delivers more of a romantic/elegant vibe than a scary one so it’s great if you’re looking for a glamorous outfit for the occasion.
With an outfit like that, I knew I had to accessorize with a simple hair, so I picked a long straight hairstyle from Tableau Vivant, which is also a group gift that is still available in the store. There is a fee to join the group (if I recall, I joined when it was free). but the group gifts you receive throughout the year are rather worth it! Of course, for a more gothic themed makeup, I turn to the two brands you’ve seen me using for the past few posts, Nuuna and Shakeup!. And for the thigh high boots, they’re from FasterPussycat, which has lots of Halloween themed outfits out at the mainstore right now.
Have you gotten your Halloween costume yet? Only a few days left, so get to shopping!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of descriptions in the last two posts. I kinda posted them during my RL busy period, so I was more concerned with getting the posts out so that you guys had something to look at, at least. Now that I’m free again, here is a post to bridge the summer and fall season. And what better way to do it than with an this beautiful evening gown by AZUL.
The Nayomi gown is a recent release from AZUL and the thing I love most about AZUL dresses and gowns is that they come in a stunning choice of 14 colors. I’m not gonna list all the colors down for you, you can check them out at the AZUL mainstore. So there’s most likely one color that you’ll absolutely love, but of course do still try on the demos before making your purchase. This gown is a little tricky to wear, so the demos will be useful.
I complemented the color of the gown with the yellow eyeshadow from .charme.. It comes in a collection of 4 different eyeshadow colors in one pack to match your outfits. This eyeshadow is kinda hard to wear, so I was glad to have found the right occasion to make use of it. For my hair, I went with a hairstyle and color that would not clash with the gown or take away the attention from it, so a slicked back style in a light color worked best. Though this hair is a Hair Fair gift from fiore and isn’t available anymore, you can find other similar styles at the fiore mainstore. Oh, and one more thing, you guys gotta go grab this pearl necklace from Lazuri! It’s a freebie set of two necklaces and are so perfect for evening looks. There are two other freebies there too, just head into the Lazuri mainstore and walk right till the end, you won’t miss it.
Hope you guys loved this elegant photo shoot I did with Jackson. The fall season is coming real soon now, so do expect more posts that are suitable for fall!
Love, Kai

I feel so proud of myself! For the first time (I think), I might be blogging a few new items I’ve just discovered right away for all of you. So this time you can kinda take your time to get them cos I don’t think they’ll be unavailable so soon!
Let’s start with the first item, the hair by D!va, one of my favorite hair labels. To be honest I didn’t really like D!va when I got my first gift hair from them and that was about 2 years ago I think? Then fast forward to 2015 when they released the Bambi hair as a group gift, you might recall having seen it a few posts back, in Taking The Leap. I still have yet to do a proper full body shot with that hair so I’ll do one soon hopefully! And just recently, they have released the Iris hair as a 6th anniversary and 50,000 members celebratory group gift. The gift comes with a gown and also hairbases for the Iris hair. The hair itself comes with various attachments, a braid across the forehead, long hair in the front, long hair in the back, long braids on either side, and even though the ad shows 6 different permutations, I’m sure there are more ways you could wear it. It’s a very versatile hairstyle, you can turn it into an updo, and you can just let it hang down anytime you like!
The skin I have on is a new release by Elysium for The Dressing Room, the Kate II in the Sunkiss tone. It’s a darker skin tone than the one I usually have on, the Chai but it does have that tanned look that fits the season now. I complemented the darker skin tone with a bright eyeshadow from .charme. for LeLutka mesh heads. Unfortunately, the releases are only appliers for the mesh head, but it makes for a good reason to get one 😛
The necklace is a group gift from FINESMITH, along with a few other past group gifts that are currently still available in store. The big necklace comes in 4 different colors, cream, blue, black and red, so you can accessorize it according to what you’re wearing. The Amelie gown is a release by Lybra for the Fashiontropic event that had already passed but is now available in the mainstore. There is only one size though, the EasyMesh option. I don’t really know how it works but I assume that it fits each body like a glove. If you have a system body, there is an alpha provided for you. However, you might run into some issues with the Maitreya Lara mesh body, so please please do remember to try on a demo before you make your decision.
I hope this post has been useful! I will do my best to blog about new gifts as much as I can. See you soon!
Love, Kai
