Fuel Your Inner Child

December 1st, The Arcade is open and in full swing!  The chiming and clanging of the machines, the music from the carousel, the smell of cotton candy and confections, and the flashing of colorful lights paint this inner childs dream event.

I hope you were able to save up that gacha money and the machines are generous with their rares.  If you see me kicking a machine, do not fret, it likely isnt being nice and giving me something rainbow!  My inner child has a great time at the Arcade and I hope you do as well, the event takes a great deal of time and the creativity is boundless.  What treasures will you find, what is that one thing on The Arcade Shopping Guide that you must have?

This round my must have was the Love camera you see me wearing in the photos below.  Skillfully crafted from bbqq, it was a must have to capture the precious moments with Gabriella.

To make your Arcade experience more enjoyable, consider wearing a full body invisible alpha and taking off all those huds and gadgets to lessen your own lag.  Be sure to visit the many social networks and sites for the Arcade and above all, enjoy your time at this fun filled event!

You Never Forget Your First Doctor

Just in time for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, Damien Fate has released a series of amazing time traveler themed outfits in his FATEplay line for Geeks ‘n Nerds fair.  The fair runs until December 8th and is packed full of great items to please your inner geek and nerd.

Who was your first Doctor, and which is your favorite?  I returned to Doctor Who with the 9th Doctor and enjoyed the short journey, but my love of all things Doctor Who became tenfold with aptly the 10th Doctor.  David Tennant will always be MY Doctor, and though I have a wondrous time watching the journey of the doctors to follow, Ten will always be my favorite.

Think you’ve seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything. We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me… nothing will ever be the same again!

London Calling

I have always had a love for all things British.  On mon Papa’s side of the family my ancestry comes from Manchester, planting the interest from a young age.  From music to clothing trends, food and of course beer and cider.  One day I hope to visit the magnificent city of London.  In the meantime I will continue to collect my UK and British memorabilia and themed items.  That’s become very easy lately in SecondLife with all our amazing creators designing and bringing us fun Brit themed goodies.

One such favorite of mine is the multi-talented and ever brilliant Wavie Haller.  Valiant & Co. has there styles of shoes at Shoetopia and you are not too late to head over to snatch them up, lag free!  The Union version of the Journey boots are my favorite, sporting a perfectly placed union jack and stomping soles fit for a proper mosh pit.  A must have for your shoe collection, oh and female versions available!

Shopping Spree

A man in a suit, dapper and sharp exuding confidence and intrigue.  Perhaps these are the qualities of a suit that creator Zaara Kohime envisioned when she created this magnificent Zaara classic suit for men.

In a multitude of colors and a hud full of shirt colors and tie patterns, this suit means business.  I could not decide what colors I wanted, and by the time I had narrowed it down, it was best to just get the fatpack to mix and match my suit needs.  I am happy with the choice, an investment in my attire.  To see the vivid hud and all of its options please visit the official Zaara website.

A dashing suit needs the perfect shoes and Lapointe & Bastchild have just released three new styles of dress shoes for men at Shoetopia.  I wear the exclusive 100% donation pair of Traditional Lace-Up, which come with a hud full of built in socks and sock-less options that equally come with a skin matching hud.

 

Dressing up your home with finery is as much of an enjoyable and fulfilling venture as your attire.  Fine metals, gold filigree, silver inlay and textures from far off lands create an ambiance of decadence.  Apple Fall has finery down to an art, truly resplendent decor that can be used in such a wide array of decorating needs and styles.  Antique pieces, artistic patterns and plush suede, give the gift of finery to your home with this beautiful Black & Gold set from Apple Fall at Collabor88.

All of this splendor is housed in the unique and extraordinary Scarlet Apple Neva Captain House, themed in Industrial Chic, it is truly a wonder to be seen.  You may not find a more unique abode to dwell within than this.  See for yourself at Collabor88.
