I just thought I’d do another action-themed shoot, cos I haven’t been doing something like this for a little while. In case you guys didn’t know, I was trying to reference spy movies where the female protagonist goes undercover to seduce corrupt government officials and then escapes the scene with guns blazing. The dress by .SALT and the shoes by G&D gave the perfect look, and I accessorized it with the most appropriate bracelet ever, a gift for The Fantasy Collective by Valentina E. Couture (such amazing stuff from the label).
By the way, change is coming, which is why you might notice that I have chose to hide a certain part of myself in this photo. Be sure to check back soon to find out!
Love, Kai

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

Sadly, this will be my last time blogging for AZUL. I love the brand, don’t get me wrong, they make amazing and dreamy gowns like this one featured above. It was always a pleasure blogging for AZUL, but as I’ll be dedicating half my time to blogging menswear on my new blog Damn, Kai! (which you should check out right now if you haven’t :P), I’ll be resigning as blogger for a few womenswear labels to make sure I still can cope >.<
I hope you guys can support me in this decision, and I’ll definitely bring you more awesome posts on this blog (and the other as well).
PS: I think I kinda look like Alicia Vikander in this photo haha

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

Hey everyone, I’m back after a little break with my most modern chic look yet. It might sound like I’m praising myself, but I don’t think I’ve done lots of modern chic looks and this by far is definitely my favorite look. Come to think of it, it might also be because I’ve picked out the clothing ensemble for a styling competition once so I feel strongly for it haha.
Anyways I shall shall start with the top, the Cheeky top by Pixicat. The fabric patterns and colors are grouped into similar colors and released in different huds, so when you buy a specific color you’re also getting a few other colors in one, which is rather worth it! The same goes for the Lula pants from GizzA, they come in different fabric types, and this one I’m wearing is the leather pack. Since the colors of both the top and pants were rather neutral, I picked a neutral latte-colored blazer from Emery to complete the look.
Accessories also come in neutral tones, from the nude sandals by 1992 to the brown Byron hat, a menswear release from Elysium. The glasses I’m wearing are from Wicca’s Wardrobe, and they’re called the Kai glasses. And yes, true to what you might be thinking, it was named after me because Wicca was naming her glasses when I joined her blogger’s group haha. I’m so honored, thank you so much, Wicca!
I kept the lips matte and in a slightly darker shade of red to complement the look, and the lipstick comes from Shakeup!. The minimalist necklace comes from Secret Love, and is a group gift available for grabs!
I have a few more looks coming out before the end of November so please do check back soon!
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

#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

#85 – Damsel In Distress

The first post for Penumbra Fashion Week and what a better way to start off than with an over-the-top photo shoot? An evil beast (a Cthulhu, more precisely) has invaded the castle and now the princess has to flee. And always remember to flee in style, in the best couture there is. 😛
This amazing gold Goddess Gown comes from Masoom, exclusively for Penumbra Fashion Week, starting today and lasting one whole week. The gown comes complete with a crown and necklace, a perfect ensemble if you’re attending a ball, or perhaps for fleeing the castle in, just like me. I got slightly lazy with the skin and makeup choices, as you can see, but to be honest, it does give a nice contrast against the gown. The Navi hair from pr!tty also lends a more hurried, panicky feel to the photo with the amazing effortless, windswept hairs.
This is a slightly short post cos the photo says almost everything I wanna bring across to you guys. Oh, and I gotta thank Jackson for taming the Cthulhu for the photo shoot, placing it in the right position was challenging. Of course, there was also a lot of effort put into getting the right sky and environment too!
Alright, this is gonna be a busy week for me, constantly posting photos for Penumbra Fashion week, and it will be a feast for your eyes! I’ll try to post once per day, so do come check back often!
Love, Kai
