You don’t have to be mad… but it helps!

with 18 comments

 

Alice and the Mad Hatter have decided to break out the best china and have a tea party in the garden. Now prospective party goers don’t have to be mad… but it helps!  It’s a lovely sunny day and even the book trees have blossomed, with books of course.

There’s a game of chess happening but it’s not conventional rules.  The Dormouse is awake for once but he’s playing the rabbit who famously leaves early because he’s got somewhere else to go.  Phoenix Junior is flummoxed by the whole thing! He’s only interested in cake really.

 

Meanwhile, at the Cheshire Cat end of the table, the lazy daisy has at last woken up, which is just as well since his cuppa is going cold!  The cat’s got his paw on the situation 🙂

 

Alice is doing her best to look cute, while the Mad Hatter contemplates his half a cup of tea.  Maybe the Rainbow Phoenix has done a trick on it!

A good old fashioned bath

with 4 comments

There’s nowt like a good old fashioned bath!  At least that’s what my mum used to say when we were living in a very rural village abroad and it was my brother and yours truly fetching water, boiling it up and bunging it in the bathtub.  By the time we’d finished we darn well needed a bath!

Now this bathtub is that much easier, you just click a few times to get the water automatically filled to the brim of the tub and then you have a choice of clear water, foaming bubbles or romantic rose petals floating on top. Wonderful!  This is Chez Moi Furniture‘s interactive and whimsical “Rustic Bathtub” which is available at the current round of The Chapter Four Event. You’ve got a choice of maturities and a couple of extra pieces – the Rustic Bath Table and the Rustic hanger where you can put your bathrobe.  Huh!  We didn’t have those in my day 🙂

Here’s details of all the Home & Garden pieces:-

I have a new sponsor!  This is EvE & ADAM by designer, Ginger Chevalier. I’ll be blogging for ADAM and there’s a lot to show you. You’ve seen me blog the ADAM Mesh Body before, it’s my favourite mesh body, not too skinny or too beefy but beautifully formed *laughs*. Ginger makes skin appliers for the ADAM mesh body and also for her ADAM Bento Head, clothing and beards.

Today, I’m wearing:-

ADAM Mesh Body – v 1.4 b
ADAM Mesh Head Bento – v 1.4
ADAM Beard Bento M1
ADAM Skin applier for Bento Head – Marc 30
ADAM Skin applier – Olivier
Shape – my own
Eyes – CATWA unrigged animated eyes n tears

There’s a shape included with the Bento Head, it’s very nice if you want to just use that.  I altered it more to suit me. What I didn’t change was the nose – Ginger has the perfect nose on this shape! There are teeth included but not eyes. You do need mesh eyes and I used the CATWA animated eyes, fiddled a bit to get them to fit the eye sockets. You also get an animations HUD which is a lot of fun.

The medium length beard is Bento, it will work with the ADAM Bento head, and you need to add it. Daft me was thinking it was an applier and pressing the HUD colours, nothing was working. Don’t make that mistake!  Plenty of texture colours for the beard and you can also tint it for that perfect match with your skin. It will work with the animations HUD just fine. There are various options on the HUD to change parts of the head such as the eyelashes or ears.

The head applier is called Marc and it’s for the ADAM mesh body only.  Marc actually comes in different ages (30, 45 and 60) – this is the age 30 one and it’s pretty true to that age. It will match all 11 tones in the ADAM Mesh Body HUD (and these are included on the applier HUD) so very little fiddling required which is a real boon. You have have with and without brows.

The skin applier is called Olivier and mmm, it’s an attractive one!  Very reasonably priced at 450L for all the skin tones, with hair and without. You can pay more than that for 1 skin tone. I was using the No. 6 shade with hair. Makes bath time more fun!

 

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

 

Ivar had a little finch… or two

Who’s Ivar, you may ask?  Well, he’s the 7 Deadly s{K}ins Group Gift for February!

The Ivar applier pack is based on the CATWA Daniel Bento Mesh Head. There’s 24 OMEGA appliers in total – 4 skin tones with and without hairbase – 3 face types – clean, shaven and beard.  We also get SLINK body appliers in the gift for the same 4 tones.  I was wearing the full beard, hairbase Caramel tone. It’s a great Group Gift, guys 🙂

Other appliers and the Ivar Bento Shape with Ivar eyebrows are sold separately. The shape is based on the CATWA Daniel Bento Mesh Head and SLINK men’s Mesh Body. It is a modify shape so if you want to keep your own body shape but use the Bento face,  then just take a copy of Ivar, and add your own figures for the body, torso and legs measurements. I’ve done this in the picture and it’s very near to how I want my Daniel Head to eventually look.

I wearing the Maalik Suit Jacket (suit has black leather pants) by Vero Modero. This is a clothing layers and sculpt design, and shows how good these were and still are, especially if you aren’t into mesh bodies – and I know a good percentage of you aren’t. The pose is by Ramsa Style and called Androgeny , it’s a gift pose. Visit Ramsa’s section of Vero Modero for more excellent and varied poses both for bloggers and for models.
