At the very last minute

If you are like me, you do a lot of the Holiday stuff at the very last minute.
I usually end up doing something like the awesome DAD item from Christmas on 34th Street: Just going "fuck it" and leaving the lights tangled in a pile.
I will update details on where to get the stuff, when I have time, probably in several takes.

Have a lovely peaceful weekend.

Cold as Ice

You can wear the dress without the mantel, if you need to be able to move your arms. The mantel for me at least worked more as a pose prop. I really love the hand and feet appliers by Fallen Inc. Both are gifts! They had several options for types of appliers etc, too. I will try to take a picture for another post with the feet showing. This time I opted on a closer look of the top of the body. I have been finding amazing gifts at different events, and will try to show as many as I can, soon.

I could smell the fresh snow

I was lucky enough to get some quality time with my SL uncle Jak Calcutt this Sunday, and he gave me a tour of the Second Pride sim with the amazing new winter decor! It looks so gorgeous, and the atmosphere is just right. I felt like I could smell the fresh snow.

At the landing place there is a big ice rink for skating and parties. Check out the new gallery with the non-profit spaces! You can see the festival globe from here, the big structure with a rotating Christmas tree inside. Look around, there is plenty to see!

Hop on the merry-go-round by the landing, or walk over to the trolley, which will take you on a tour of the sim. It stops at some major landmarks worth seeing.

While on our way to the Santa's village, we came by St.Nicholas and some familiar faces. Uncle Jak said it was difficult to tell me and the other foxes apart.

When we got to Santa, me and him had a serious talk. He promised not to make me sing to him on Christmas eve, like he often has done in Finland to innocent creatures like foxes and small human children. He wanted something in return, so I promised not to bite him this time and to try and avoid hiding under the table when he asks, whether or not I have been a good fox. We shook paws and mittens and I went on my way.

Then Uncle Jak took me to a surprising place! There is a whole Japanese garden on the sim! Once you walk through the gate, you feel, like you are stepping into a magical world of it's own.

Swans and ducks swim in the pond. You can feed the ducks by clicking the feeder box. There are also frogs that leap around on some lotus leaves. And fittingly the dance floor meant for parties is actually made of huge lotus leaves!

Did you notice the shape the stepping stones are lined up in? They mimic the formation a flock of geese flies in, and hence the path is called the "Flying Geese Bridge".

In the middle of the pond, you find yourself on some big rocks deep in thought. An old tree bends it's neck over you. This is a temple for protection and safety.

If you are aware of how traditional Japanese Gardens are built, you will notice that this one is made as authentic as possible. So much research went into the making of this special space, where you feel like everything is the way it should be. Someone has made lines on the sand, like a meditation.

There is a little tea room set up for a traditional ceremony. Make sure to note the moss garden and the old bonsai trees, by the long fence, as well. Did you know that many Japanese gardens have something to remind you of Mount Fuji? Here the mound is for that purpose.

Back to the world outside the garden. In the Memorial Chapel you can light a candle for a loved one, and many people have done so. It is a beautiful space, where one may sit down and have a quiet moment to think about those we have lost. But the space is not too somber. You can think of the good things, too. Nice memories and the special people you shared them with. 

When you visit the Auditorium, you may find your first thought to be "wow". The colorful yet elegant, practical yet beautiful look of the space is really wonderful. Jak has been replacing the windows with glass blocks to give the space a new interesting feel. Speaking of replacing, he has also been retexturing some buildings with nice red bricks.

When walking around starts to make you tired, sit down in the gazebo for a hot chocolate and a chat. 

Here is a look over the whole sim. Even the sim surround is lovely.
Thanks for a great tour, Jak!

Toffees in a cup and a berry cake

This morning I heard the strangest sound
Of shuffling paws and birds flying around
It was doves and foxes having a break
With toffees in a cup and a berry cake.
And cousins of the four foxes red
Sleeping safely in their a fallen tree bed.

Science fashion

I am so sorry for not blogging fashion, lately. I have been so swamped with different projects. I want to especially apologize to people who have sent in items for blogging and have not seen enough of their items used. I will try to do better in the future. I am happy to be in your regular groups instead of blogger ones, and come over to buy new items, instead of getting free samples. I joined your blog teams because I loved your items, not to run off with your stuff ;). <3 You decide, honored to stay in blog groups, but really you need to do what is best for your brand, and I am happy to support you either way.

I have finally set up a new look for Alana, based on the Maitreya Lara body. I am really loving it! So much more practical to use this than alphas and separate bodyparts, etc. Way more options for custom looks than first appears. I made my own shape and love how easy that was. And being able to use make up layers and such on the head, still, was a great positive surprise.

Body: Maitreya: Mesh Body, Lara

Hair: Gauze: Wisp, Color-Ified
Eyes: Gauze: Elemental, Animus, Human (Thanks Yukio!)
Lipstick: Alaskametro: Angel, Sad November (Thanks Alaska!)
Dress: FDD Stories: Kimmie, Plum, Gacha garden
Boots: Fri: Rosie, Ash, Mix

Phil's Halloween Party had some early visitors.

Phil's Halloween Party
This event started at Noon casually and Zho is currently playing tunes for us. The event will go on late into the night with several dj's taking turns.

Remember, VIP~ Gestures and Sundries ( and Phil's HideOut ) HALLOWEEN HUNT 2015 is also still open, and will be for the first week of November. The link goes to my blog post about it, which has more details.

Club Amarantha has an event called "A Touch of Pink for Halloween" today at 5pm SLT.  If you add some pink to your outfit, you are good to go for the theme, the outfit does not have to be completely pink. This is a charity event for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

If you did not yet, make sure to pop by Whitechapel, the Halloween Maze by Badger Albatros. You get there by the left magic door at the Amarantha landing pier. I blogged it with a lot of pictures and a silly poem.
