Loving ZIBSKA

ZIBSKA is a brand that is not only Diversive and supremely Unique in Second Life, Zib herself is a visonary designer.

I have been lucky enough in my past SL life to have been gifted by Zib items that excite and inspire. I also have bought many items from this designer and always have been impressed with the quality and construction involved.
Whilst appreciating items given to me to blog, I am also happy to buy items to blog that I particularly am inspired by.
The following shots of Zibska’s creations are a mix of items kindly sent by Zibs herself (Thankyou so much ZIBSKA)
and items I have happily bought.
ROCK ON ZIBSKA!!!

Thanking Nile Karas of FLOWERDREAMS

I have to say Thank You to Nile, she has been and still is a wonderful and caring friend. Her creations so artfully crafted and so feminine, Once upon a time SL was full of places to go where a gown was a necessity, always staing please wear formal.

Not so much now and in some ways its a little sad that SL is merging so closely to RL Do I really want to look like the CHAV in the town centres (no thanks), the magic and fantasy lessens. FLOWERDREAMS Gowns are truly fantasy and therefore hold a touch of magic, One of my all time faves is the Princess Turandot gown it is so pretty. So Thank You Nile for keeping a little Magic in SL.

One of the most important events in SECOND LIFE lets take it to REAL LIFE .

Is   The  Stand4 love campaign that is currently  running, organised by RicoRacer  Flux and his  hubby Editorial Clarity Flux, this campaign is  promoting acceptance and love for all  fellow beings.

No matter what color creed or sexual orientation.

I for one wholeheartedly support this, Life is short,  too short for hatred and ignorance. Lets  all put our actions where  our mouths  are and   Stand4 Love, the more love in the world, the less  space there is for hatred.

I really do have to say a Thank You to Claudio, who very kindly  did a really wonderful Video on  you tube for  me, it was so unexpected and I felt  truly honored.

Its not everyday that someone takes  that amount of time  and effort to be kind.

so a BIG THANKYOU to Claudio for  that.

and  here it is ;-

 

FLOWERDREAMS

I have known Nile since I  first came to SL, a  close honest and true friend, I  think she knows me  better than anyone in SL, we have shared laughter, tears and ups and downs for several years, in all honesty it was her fabulous creations  that started me taking photos of my avi and what  I dressed in, theyre such beautiful  creations,  she also started to make skins, and face tattoos that are so delicately feminine, her lingerie  is very  sensual also, she   is the epitomy of femininity, her store packed  full of  Beautiful and also  very sensual gowns.

I truly admire her skill and  talent, because she has avoided the mesh madness, and her   creations  in all honesty  do not need to use   mesh,

Dont get me wrong I am not a mesh hater, I just  see the same same items, with a diff texture thrown on it,  and  badly  fitting alphas that leave a  gap,  I really hate that.

Give me  talent and  beauty and femine lingerie, skin, and gowns any day fo the week,  and  FLOWERDREAMS is literally  a one stop shop for all  that, Nile Karas is  an artist always  has been and always will be, but more importantly she is a  Beautiful person, and a wonderful friend,  Nile Karas  you have the soul of an Angel.

Thankyou for  your friendship and all the kindnesses  you have shown me over the years.

8154511826_1cca7f3773As I stated on Flickr,  If your gonna wear something  Fabulous,  then do it Fabulously,  if not,  then dont  bother  to wear  it.

Snapshot_122Just  recently  I have been   kindly sent some  items to blog from LUSH*Limited by Xi Zane,   and  I really  am not that mad on mesh, too much of anything is not brilliant, and never  one to run with the pack, I have avoided it  if at  all possible,  but Xi sent these  and yes  there are the same styles  with other creators bla bla, and yes some are  really nice,  But it was the textures that gave   LUSH  the edge for me, and her color pallette.

So  for once I am not  moaning about mesh, I am liking it, lol, But  seriously  if you are buying mesh,  check out  the textures, cos bad textures  make  for  bad mesh.  at least Xi  got  it right, I love this new  range.

8243055853_d0a65de5fc_zLOL   these are shoes By BSD Design studio and me not in much else  ok cheeky shoes called for a cheeky shot, and BabyChampagne Sass is  starting to  make noises in the shoe world with her pretty neat shoes, yep I am shoe freak in rl  and  sl,  heaven knows why I dont wear the darn things    hahaha, and I love Dogs in sl and Rl  too  xox

Snapshot_174aThis is truly  one of my  all time fave shots, and this  Gown by Vivien emerald of DESIR’  was a  group gift,  she really   does spoil her group members, and I just fell in love  with this, and  yes she is  a personal friend and  yes  one could say I am biased towards my friends, but I really am not, and where credit is due its due, She is a very talented  young designer, and I wish her a wonderful  future with her store, she works  hard and really does some wonderful and inspiring  Creations.

Snapshot_043TRYST my first main build by myself, it was a bit of a daunting task I had always been the Ideas Person, I am not a skilled  builder, I just see the build,  but sick of others taking credit for my work, I decided  this one would be mine in total,  gosh  what a learning  curve.

7181747243_04b8d1f019_bI love this  shot because I got to do the drama Diva, in it,  lol,  That dress from VeroModero just called  for  this type of photo,  and I love Bouquet Babii of Vero Modero,  she is  always so nice to  talk to.

8137797576_84184f31bcA Fave it had to be,  I was so honored, when Zibska  did a  Xia  dress,  I took loadssss of shots,, but this was my fave.  and if you want wild and wonderful   for jewelry , make up, and original  wear, then Zibska  has to  be one of the best places I know in SL.

 

7060890961_e563c6f5eb_bA fave shot, Wearing a Top hat and Bovver  Boots is not generally advised with a couture  gown,  but fortunately for me,  the Designer  Loved it, but  then  again, I love  the Designer,  she is a pretty  amazing lady  who I met  long beforeI entered  the Modelling world, Her gowns are  some of the most wonderful to be found In Second life,  and Nile Karas  herself is one of the nicest  People you could  ever wish  to meet.

6380930199_2e53ba01f0_bone of my all  time fave shots, this was a comp entry for  a comp that  never happened,  there are a lot of those in Second Life, beware, they  get you to buy stuff, then the comp dies a death, unlike  RL  there is no come  back or refund on  money you may have spent.

I  Dont  often sneek  out from my sim in Second Life,  due to alwaysss being busy, either  taking  shots  of fashions sent  to me by wonderful Designers or Playing round  at building,  Tryst is ever evolving, and   so often I  just  lose time  being lost in  attempting new things.

However when I  saw that Buffy Holfe, had an Art installation going on  I had to sneek out to take a peek,  Buffy  does  some  Fabulous  Artwork  that I follow on Flicr, so  this was a new  thing for  me to check out.

 

I arrived  at a super reception area,  and  LOL  it even had a pink  catwalk,  just kiddin, but  if its a long walkway its a  runway to me  hahah.

Snapshot_037

seeeeeeee LOL,   ok from  here we  go through a wonderful   door  into a  pink entrance, Now I am not a lover of pink and   not of abstract art  in general, but this pink  entrance   kind of fascinated me.

8227669244_32b2f95c8b_bDont ask I still dont figure why,  it just did.

from  through  that dark entrance I found myself in this amazing space  with  artwork of   Buffy about to hit me on the head with a  huge wand,

8227660674_80fef52531_band words  keading my way,

Snapshot_060I really was  fascinated,  it was  like walking  through  a  magical world  and   I half expected to meet the Tin Man at some point, after  camming round  and watching all the  art flying through me and past me  I  went foreward again  and  entered;-

I  spent an hour or more, just enjoying  this, its full of light and   just  color, I know  people  rave  about certain artists on SL but I am personally sick of depressing, darkness, there is enough of  that in real life, for me  this was  just  so refreshing to see.

Buffy you are  a STAR.

Thankyou  for sharing ,

Much Love

FABULOUS FLOWERDREAMS

There are Gowns and there are Gowns from Heaven, and this one is one of the latter, Lace froth and Feathers abound, It flows round your body like an ocean waves.
I love Niles Gowns, I always have and always she surprises me with her latest creations.

The CARMEN Gown is stunning, beautifully Artful, Dramatic and so easy to wear, Nile kindly sent me the PLUM and AQUA version, Thankyou Nile.
Trouble is I have to go now and buy the other three colors, thats how much I am in Love with it.

Available in.
PLUM
AQUA
JADE
SCARLETT

and  CARAMEL.

Released in September this  isnt a new release, but I am seeing similar   now coming out from other designers,  But I always say, you cant and never will beat the  Original, and I personally  Like Original.

This is the Plum version,  froth and feathers abound, perfect  and dreamy.

This is a Raw inworld  shot of the CARMEN  Gown in AQUA just cropped n framed, so what you see is what you get inworld. stunningly Beautiful and   just so  pretty,   and Fabulously textured.  the shadows and light in the gowns texture will not overpower you  but enhance  your beautiful skin and hair.

Nile is a  wonderful  Designer   and  has been a long standing close friend  for  some  years now and I for one feel very lucky to  have met this lovley  soul,  and to  have the  honor of  wearing her  stunning creations.

Thankyou Nile  for

A.  counting me as a friend.

B,  for your  unending   support and kindness to me.

C.  for  listening to  my  moans  n groans at times.

D,  for  believing  in  me.

E   for  being an exceptionally nice  person

and

F.  for one  word  FABULOUSNESS.

Nile  not only makes gowns, she also  make  rather pretty skins too.

This  is one of   the Nile Karas  Skins,  she has a  Selection  at the  Mainstore Body shop,  theyre  all very  soft and verry feminine, so  if its that Gorgeously  pretty  look your after then it has to be a Nile Karas  skin, the make  ups are all  wonderfully delicate.

This  is another  o fher skins, The GILDA skin and  I am also wearing  one of her Jewelled make ups,   she has a selection of these to choose from  all exceptionally  pretty and delicate, I so love each and everyone  of these.

There is of course, Niles Lingerie  selection,  and I can not stress how  Gorgeously  pretty  yet decadently sensual   her range  is,

This set is called Bride  and comes complete with  the veil but not the  bouquet  or shoes. The  sheer  delicacy of the lace and soft blending colors are  just soooooooo  sexy and  wonderful.

Perfect for  your wedding night, or any  other night, you will really feel  and look amazingly sensual in this  set.

another of Flowerdreams  Lingerie to die  for,  This  has a  Fabulous floating  feel,  Your  man wont  want you to ever  get dressed again when he sees you in  this or any other of Niles wonderful Lingerie. there is a huge selection at  FLOWERDREAMS to  choose from.

When it comes to Group gifts Nile is very very  Good to her Group members, and no you dont have to spend  stupid amounts of money  to qualify for the Beautiful  creation she offers as a gift.

This  was the Group gift she  created for  the Opening of  the  new store,absolutley  heavenly,   and original, I was  so   honored when  she used my  pic in  her store.

I couldnt have taken a bad photo  of this Gown it  was so wonderfully made and I didnt have to spend hours  editing prims either,

Just  one  of the  fantastic  g roup  gifts  that are regularly sent out  to her members, and for that we are really Thankful ;D
Nile also  has  some other  more edgy  gowns available, and  one of my personal and absolute faves  is  this one,

Although I am absolutley  sure Nile never  envisaged it  being worn with a Top hat and  Biker boots LOL, however she did tell me she loved the pic and my mad styling.

I soooo Love this gown its fun, its different and I  really didnt want to take it off, in fact I stayed in that gown for a week and went  just about everywhere  in  it  LOL.

Recently she   has been releasing such wonderful and  new styles, and  one  of her more recent ones  that I am a  massive  fan of is the

PRINCESS TURANDOT GOWNS

PRINCESS TURANDOT from FLOWERDREAMS

Sensual seductive and so Stunning, The fine fabric of tulle and lace on this gown is just Dreamlike.
It also comes complete with Jewelry,, so need ot chase around looking for a classy set to accessorise it, its already in the box
Available In Black and white .
Nile was inspired by the Puccini Opera – Nessun Dorma in the creation of this heavenly gown and sent me a link of music to listen to while I took some photographs of it.

Here I wear the white Version, compete with included jewelry,
The eyemask is from pink Acid,
Hair is from Vanity Hair
Nails from Synthetique.
and Taxi to FOWERDREAMS

maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New%20Fama%20/112/95/22/?t…

I  just fell so in Love with these also. I like the sheer sensuality of them,   So   here is a short  collection of  just a  very  few of FLOWERDREAMS Creations, there is  just so much and so many beautiful   things at the mainstore.

Finally Nile takes part in the 55l Thursday event,  and every Thursday she will  have  at least one of her  items out for  the crazy price of  55l, sometimes if   your lucky  there will  be 2 items.

These are not rubbishy event items, they are actual  creations from  the store,  and do go back to full price  after the event, also unlike  most, and knowing  the vagaries of time zones, and internet access  bla bla.  Nile kindly keeps her  items  out until sunday evening, so that those  people who dont get chance to get inworld  during the  week,  DO from at least this designer get a chance  to  buy the item at the special  offer  price.

I for one  think  thats a very  nice  gesture.

Each week it  is a different  item or items and is not restricted  by Group  membership only.

But if you want to keep up to date  and informed,  then I really do suggest  that you join  Niles Group, UNICORN ELVES.

Have a wonderful wonderful  week and weekend.

Much Love
