Hey guys, I thought maybe I squeeze in one winter-themed photo just in time for the end of Winter. The outfit featured in this post comes from Wicca’s Wardrobe, a really elegant and pretty set released for this month’s On9 event. Also available at the event are this beautiful pair of belted heels from the same designer.
I styled the look with a vintage-y hairstyle to fit with the vintage feel I got from the outfit, as well as a leather bag from KEEM for the Tres Chic event, which is sadly unavailable anymore, but the new round of Tres Chic is open! I also added a warm drink (cos everyone needs one in the winter) from VALE KOER for the Shiny Shabby event, and this one is a freebie, so head on down quick to grab them! Lots of other designers have put out freebies too, well, almost all designers so have fun shopping.
We’re heading into Spring next, and it’s gonna be an exciting season!
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

Don’t be fooled! There’s absolutely no black and white filter going through this photo (other than the flowers) at all. This photo was shot entirely in color at Apple Fall.
I was very inspired by Halloween looks that involved painting yourself completely in black and white, as if you had just stepped out from an old television. I decided to try it for myself, since the convenience of SL is the ease of just changing your looks just like that, without the need for any paint whatsoever. I realized I had the ‘ingredients’ (for the lack of a better word) needed for this look to happen.
The Glam Affair skin for the LeLutka mesh head and Maitreya mesh body happened to come in an Arctic version, which was completely white. If you recall, I used it once before right here. Next was the makeup, and to be honest, this was the simplest part of styling the whole look cos you can find black makeup just about anywhere. Some black eyeshadow from .charme., as well as the grunge gloss from Shakeup! did the trick. 
This pretty little dress from ISON, which came as a gift from the Hair Fair a few months ago just happened to contain a black and white version, which was a dream come true for me. Of course, there’s also colored options too. I matched the dress with a pair of Astrid classic pumps courtesy of Elysium. Elysium makes such amazing shoes I definitely had to showcase their newest designs. To complete the look, I chose a hair from pr!tty. I haven’t blogged pr!tty in such a long time (sorry Karla!), so I thought this would be a good time to do so. Besides, pr!tty hairs are always the best choice if you’re going for a soft and effortless look. The newest huds come in Grayscales and Wilds, so there are more color options now. I’ve been dying for a grayscale hud so I was super excited I could show it to you guys.
To keep the look from being too boring, I chose to add flowers to the look – partly as a matching element to the pattern on my dress – so that there would be a pop of color. A simple background and a simple pose brought this look to life. It’s definitely one of my favorite looks so far. You seldom do see people in SL walking around in black and white too, so I thought it was kinda interesting and cute. Might be sticking with this look for awhile. I hope you guys love it!
Love, Kai

So, I’ve been experimenting with a slightly goth aesthetic with my looks recently, just check out my previous post for proof haha. So for this look I went towards the Elvira or Morticia Addams look. This gown, Iolanda, is a limited release by AZUL to celebrate the reopening of their main store. There are lots more beautiful gowns from their prior releases that are making a come back, so it is definitely worth a stop. The gown was accessorized with the steamer hair from .Olive., a gift from the Hair Fair for a more vintage hairstyle. Though the gift is now unavailable, I’m sure there are lots of other vintage hairstyles available too. I added a necklace from Pure Poison, which kinda resembled a choker to complete the look while still keeping within the theme.
This is a rather short post, but I do hope you enjoy it. An exciting photo shoot is coming up in preparation for the next post, so stay tuned!
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

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

So I thought I’d do my take on old Hollywood glamour for this post. Please forgive me if there are styling issues with this cos I’m still rather unfamiliar with old Hollywood glamour but I’m working hard!
I picked an obvious choice (look at the name haha) for the main outfit, a dress from KL Couture that was a group gift. The good thing is, it even comes with a necklace that practically screams ‘this is the 50s!’. For the hair, I chose something that would complement the dress, a hairdo that wasn’t exactly very dated nor modern, probably just the right amount of vintage, and also a hairstyle that will work now. The oh-so-very-sharp heels are the Yeriak heels by Lybra, and it comes in 3 dusty colors (Pastel Leaf, Dusty Rose and Lilac), perfect for that vintage or glamorous look.
This post is kinda short, but before I go I should probably recommend the Ganesvoort House to everyone reading this. It’s a really pretty manor, complete with a patio overlooking the pool. It’s good for a nice relaxing summer photo, and even night party photos. With the right windlight, your photos will look even more amazing than how it already is at the sim! Do check it out!
Love, Kai
