It took the ladies of Style Minions a bit longer then normal to announce which characters we're to do, as the lucky ducks were in NYC and got to see the Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. I am so jealous!

And in honor of that, Today we have Cinderella's stepsisters for the Disney look. Both of them. So I did both of them.

Holy crap did this one take me a while to do! And not due to being unable to find the right look. It was all the POSE, as I needed one I could easily photo shop myself in twice! I had a number of fun poses, but the wings! They kept making it way hard! Then I remembered this one that I got from a Zodiac event a while back and bingo it worked!

Originally I had Drizella in an older avatar version but with all the redoing the clothing due to having to switch poses over and over I nixed that idea.

Daffodil is another color from the 1994 Magic scents pack that had the scents changed from food to none food. As I don't find the scent of Daffodil all that, well existing, not sure what it smelled like.

The photo for this color best represents, using what poses I could find, my current state. Our AC is out and I am MELTING. MELTING!!!!! But I couldn't find a good pose to represent that so I combined a few things and this is what you have. it is way to hot right now for me to sit at the computer long enough to explore a sim.

I'm heading back to the bedroom which has a window AC unit to cool off.

And YES next weeks crayon has THREE colors in it! I will explain it on the 3rd! Use them how you wish.

Happy Fairy Day!

June 24th is International Fairy Day!

It was started by artist, who has since changed direction of her artwork and took the original Fairy day page down. But nothing is lost forever on the internet! You can still see it here!

I've been celebrating for the past several years but couldn't get anything posted last year as I was in Oklahoma City with my OKRF Fairies having a blast together! So here is this years image and last years!


And this years!

Last week a hint was dropped that t his weeks character would be very appropriate to this week. Well Monsters University is being released this weekend. I assumed we'd be dressing as Mike or Sully as they are in both. Turlock insisted it would be Boo.

Turlock was right.

Boo was a bit tricky due to how SIMPLE her look is. An oversized t-shirt and leggings. The best shirt for the look was already used, and with my prim lower legs I can't wear leggings. So I went looking, and found these pants and this top. I wanted to make the outfit look a BIT nicer then just a shirt and leggings so the capris where fabulous. Love the embroidery on the leg. The shirt is still pretty simple but that's ok.

I tinted the prop to match sully, but the built in pose, did very little. Thankfully I had these handpuppt poses from an event last year and they worked!

Misty Moss is from the Silver Swirls specialty crayons released in 1990. They had a lovely metals sheen to them.

I had a totally "photographers" block" for this week. Every sim I went to wasn't something I was in the mood to explore with the outfit I had one. So after about 3 dozen teleports I went "eff this" and went to one of my favorite sims, Bentham Forest and took the shot, and called it a day.

I did find loads of interesting sims, but none called to me to explore at the moment. Some due to being multi sim builds and I just wasn't in the mood to explore more then one sim right now. Others, they would just look weird with the mushroom outfit I had on.

The outfit is a fantastic fae concoction by Caverna Obscura, all moss and mushrooms and bark. Loads of fun.

Next weeks color is an easy one, because I have a dozy of a crayon for you all for the week of the USA's Fourth of July!

Vanellope, if you didn't know, is from the newest Disney Animated film Wreck it Ralph, which if you haven't seen yet, Go see it! It's fantastic!

Putting together her look was easy, as she's already dressed fairly normally. It was adding the touches of candy that was the fun part! I grabbed a lot of candy themed jewelry and wore it all togehter. Instead of sprinkling candy in my hair I picked a super fun style by Schadenfreude that lets you change the color of individual "strands"

The location is a skybox as I wanted a candy setting for this one. Found a super cheap candy skybox and dug out a pose from a candy themed set, which fit Vanellope well.

I wanted a candy car but couldn't find one, which surprised me! Open market idea for someone! Grab it!

Shimmering Blush is from the 2001 Metallic FX special edition box. Which you can still get in a store near you!

I chose a lovely new outfit by one of my favorite stores Caverna Obscura as it was perfect for this color. I felt it needed jewelry so I found a stand out necklace by Southpaw. The pose is one of 9 you can get from aDORKable's last gacha at the Arcade. I'm still after the rare one if anyone has a spare!

For the sim I at last went to the newly reopened Hazardous! I visited the sim previously in 2012 when it had a different build.. The new sim is a lot less water! But still lovely, which a few nods to the old build.

There are lots of nooks and crannies to find, but unless i missed them, no teleports to skyboxes. If anyone knows of any of those let me know!

If I had to pick between the two builds, I like the watery one more then the current one. But both are lovely in their own way!

Movie poster challenge

So, this round of Berry's weekly blog challenge as much different then the others! What did she want us to do?

Monday Meme Instructions: The challenge for this week is to create a movie poster for your SL Avatar or SLife. You can base it off an original movie poster or think of a completely new idea of your own! Get creative and have some fun with it! Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so others can come by and see your poster as well.

So I sat and thought, what could I do? Then I was looking at my netflix queue and saw that I had added FairyTale: A True Story a while back. And BINGO there was my poster! Here is what the original looks like.

And now here is my version! It is likely the most post processed image I have posted. Lens flair! Blue Screen! *well purple* More then one photo taken and layered together!!

I changed the text to reflect a "joke" I use when introducing myself at Ren faires "I'm a cat fairy, see I have a tail, it's my Fairy tail!" It gets me giggles and groans.

And I forgot to write down the credits for what I am wearing and which animation I used. Doh me! I do remember the hair is by Truth and the outfit is by Caverna Obscura but not the pose. Took me FOREVER to find one that worked and then I had to use a secondary program inworld to move my arm out to "touch" the finger on the other hand.

Ok, this look was way fun and way easy to put together.

I went looking for a yellow jacket, and just HAPPENED to find a yellow version of Michael Jackson's Thriller Jacket . This tickled me to NO end so I went with it. Found a blue vest and green pants and there you go!

Had to toss on a fun hat as what is the HATTER with out a HAT. Then of course I had to take the photo at my teahouse. On a new tea party table I picked up for my big teahouse overhaul. The pose is an old Hunt pose I've had for a while, and I liked out it fit with the jacket AND was Alice themed so there we go!

So..I got the days of the week mixed up and so this is a day late in being posted. SORRY!

The Coconut crayon comes from the 1994 magic scent pack. The food scented ones that got replaced with none foods.

Now that faire is over I am hoping to get back to exploring like normal. Looking forwards to that!

This is so late as the ladies at Style Minions didn't get the new one up till Sunday!

Smee is Hooks well..Valet is the best word for it. Bumbling right hand is another way.

I had fun with this look, trying to go with an angle I thought others wouldn't. Using the poncho and a BIG red hat instead of the beanie he usually wears.

still in love

Our Anniversary was on the first of June, and we where both causing mischief and shenanigans in the Fairy glen at the Oklahoma Renaissance Festivel for its last weekend of the year. So I wasn't able to post this.
