I’m late! I’m late! ….for a very important date!

Bunny table, main DR

Today, I feel like the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland clutching a giant pocket watch.  First, I hope you and your family had a nice Easter weekend, and for those of you that celebrate Passover, shalom.  I unfortunately had a nightmare weekend filled with unnecessary SL drama and RL family illness.  So, I texted EB and we are planning the bunny hop, egg roll and tea party next weekend in both worlds.  All are invited!  If you are in need of sweet treats, or adorable Easter Spring home decor, I have a few finds for you!

Comic Book Girl, full

Another fun and colorful outfit from The Comic Pop Art Fair 2014!  I’m really getting into this whimsical side of my personality.  This sexy mid-drift baring mini dress, The Bang! is designed by Kharanee’s Clothing, available with Phat Azz, Cute Azz, Brazilia, and Lolas Tango appliers (worn without any extra appliers in snaps), is a great combo between comic graphic art and Pop Art denoted by legendary artist Roy Lichtenstein.  To enhance the cartoon effect, I paired the Bang dress with Sky Comic Jewelry set (necklace & bangles), Unrepentant Bang Knuckle Duster (ring), and the Hollyhood SuperHero Slink finger nails appliers (hands & feet).  Adding to the whimsy of the Pop Art Comic Book girl are the Geek Ink Tears Red (eye make-up), ::kDm:: Meal Pierce Morning Set earrings (Silver, Rare gatcha) and the Tabou Irresistible Mina Hair (Baby Blue).  When I was shopping at The Comic Fair, I found a free shape from Belissima Celia (no modify, **also a free male shape available**) and I’m wearing Envyme Aline Tan Skin (with Slink hand & feet appliers).  My final find from the fair is the Essenz Seattle (Slink add-on shoes, **free hunt gift**).  Taxi please…

Pucker Up!

The Comic Fair Barnner Size

The Comic Pop Art Fair opened on April 15 and will run until April 30, 2014.   I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not a comic book wizard.  I didn’t even watch cartoons when I was a kid, well maybe a few very, very old original Bat Man if memory serves me.  What interests me to join the blogger team was the theme: fashion inspired by comics.  I can’t wait to see the intersection of graphic and Pop Art, and the designers interpretations of cartoons in the fashion world.  I will highlight designers who draw their influence from the Pop Art movement, and maybe I’ll try my hand as a cape crusader, you never know.

The Comic Pop Art Fair 2014 is organized by same team that brought you the Boho Culture Fair, The Event & Hunt Forever Planners.  This is my first time working with the team from the official blogger side.  The event sim is huge!  The fair offers free hunt gifts (look for large teal, blue & red packages in the stores), a bazaar area with discounted outfits and accessories, Comic Fair exclusives, and gatcha machines chalked full of goodies!  So many stores for everything you would want including skins, shapes, accessories, men & women, and home decor items.  The Comic Fair offers are colorful and whimsical allowing you to fantasize your next character.  Taxi please…

Display, close up no color

I noticed that Pop Art legend Roy Lichtenstein has a large presence at the Comic Fair (btw: he is one of my favorite artists).  Above are 4 interpretations of cartoon graphic art in fashion with Frogstar Bang! diary (gatcha prize #9), Kaboom! ring (gatcha prize #14), ZOZ Comic Polish nails (Slink appliers for hands/feet), and Shine by [ZD] Kensington Pop Art handbag.  Another notable Pop Artist is Andy Warhol, the Fabouzz! Lips 50′s dress is a perfect modern nod to the 50s halter dress and 60s art movement.  Phoebe Bubblegum pink bow detailed Pin Up sunglasses, Baubles Vinyl Recording earrings, J & A Accessories Minnie Mouse necklace and Essenz Athens lipstick red Slink shoes complete the look.  I used the Envyme Zoey Skin in fair with slink appliers for hands and feet in the shots above.

The windmills of my mind

LG, Wishing Well Dress

Spring is in full bloom and the weather is perfect for daydreaming.  I just want to lay out on a grassy knoll and have the sun’s rays wash over my face, and feel its warmth, as I delight in the wonders of the world.  Visions of yummy sweet treats, butterflies dancing above my head and the sounds of a grand fountain flash before my eyes; capturing the freshness of the spring season like a rose bud ready to pop open, with its intoxicating fragrance are the windmills of my mind.

Luckily for me I found just the place to recreate my daydream in Second Life.  Liv Glam’s new main store location, the Ishel Down is an enchanting cobblestone village with shops such as Fashion Star, Designer Showcase, Zanze, Indyra Originals, and of course the cornerstone Liv Glam.  If you are looking for a new photo location, or want to be transported to a charming European street, check it out.  All my photo’s were taken at the Ishel Down location and I discovered the most delicious cafe with yummy sweets and an elegant lounge area.

As for the perfect spring dress, only Liv Glam’s Wishing Well HUD 1 would do.  Not only is LG’s Wishing Well a sweet spring strapless 50′s style full skirt adorable, but it has a 6 pantone hud, allowing you to customize each look depending on your mood or occasion.  Wishing Well’s full skirt has a modern twist with a sight dip in the back creating a subtle interpretation of the popular hi-low effect.  Wishing Well is a new release at Fashion Star for $99L.  Talk about a great bang for your buck!

To truly capture the feeling of spring, I paired Liv Glam’s Wishing Well dress with Truth Hair April (available at Collabor88 for $188L) with its optional butterfly clip.  I love the luminous and radiance texture of Truth Hair.  There is a natural tonality in the strands of hair with deeper richer tones and highlights, and hair appears to have movement.  I carried the butterfly motif down to the shoes using Hucci Vinnitsa Slink add- on (High) with the sculpted butterflies on the heel back (available at Collabor88 for $88L).

Hucci Shoes

To complete the look, I used Pure Posion’s new group gift, Aileen Necklace.  (PS, Pure Poison is having an Easter sale 50% off).  The simple silver scallop collar draws the eye back to Liv Glam’s Wishing Well back bow detailing. Finally, DaD Design Paper Windmill (exclusive item at The Feeling Event, $180L modifiable) was the ideal accompaniment to finalize my tribute to spring.  Worn through out is Belleza’s Rose skin (past FLF item) now available for $250L at temporary store.  Ma Vie Girl Fever poses (past Lazy Sunday special).  I hope you visit the new Liv Glam region and pick up some of the special deals I highlighted today.  Tomorrow I will dive into the Comic Pop Art Fair!
