For my first look, I went nontraditional yet still with a Christmas feel. The outfit is our gift from BLACK&WHITE, and their gift includes the outfit in system layers along with a TMP applier and a HUD that is just called BW Gift, I was delighted to see when I added it that it was a HUD for Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega. The shirt says Don't Stop Believin', and the back has some really cool details with those tiny straps. The comfy looking shoes are included, Slink and Maitreya versions (flat feet) along with a pair called Static. These might work for default avatar feet. As for the tree beside me, it is our gift from PreCAST Inc. called Wooden Deco Tree and comes in small, medium, and large sizes. The one with me is the small, so these would do well outdoors where ceiling heights are not a problem :) The modern style is quite fun, I appreciate traditional too and even more so the opportunity in SL to change between styles on a whim/.
If you have somewhere to go and want to look seasonally alluring, Miss Jewell has this delightful outfit hidden in their pink candle for us. There are system layers along with appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas (good thing I am wearing my Maitreya body today instead of Slink) and the fur sleeves, collar, and skirt. You will definitely turn heads in this beauty with the plunging neckline. In the inset, you can see a closer look at today's eyes I am wearing, which are our hunt prize from Inkheart called Merry Eyes in Denim. There are also two other colors, Melody (light green) and Sea (very pale blue) and each comes in system or mesh, 4 sizes each. These have a strong contrast between the main color and the ring around it (I feel like I read that's called a limbal ring) so their light shades are quite appealing.
From the Advent Chase Hunt to advent calendars...this lovely top is the gift from Lemonade Couture, their Amie Cardigan in standard sizes plus Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass versions. The slightly contrasting colors and patterns ensure it is not your grandmother's old cardigan. No group needed for this Advent calendar. My playful necklace is from Eclectic Stars, another great calendar with no group tag required to claim your gifts. This is their Cubism necklace in Puzzling, their take on the classic Rubik's cube that challenged so many of us in our childhoods and beyond.
Here we have another festive Advent Calendar gift from Moonstar, this is the *V* Xmas Tree Dress and it is included in standard mesh sizes. The ruffled layers of the skirt do remind me a bit of a tree, and the pattern has some lovely trees along with snowflakes and polka dots. No group needed, just click the right date and this gift is yours.
Here is what Hello Dave has waiting for us, just wear your free group tag and you can claim the December 9th hud for Slink and Omega. Today we have some very delicate blush shades with tiny flakes and hanging decorations on them, along with that truly stunning accent nail which has a burgundy tip scattered with snowflakes too. You can choose any you wish for all 10 nails, or mix and match as I have done here in order to show them all. Another winning design from our generous designer.
Today should be a good one for me, an enjoyable evening with family is always a great way to end a busy week. Tomorrow I have my usual plans plus several hours' extra plans, enough that I will be shifting my post to the night time and featuring hunt prizes rather than Advent calendar goodies so you don't have to worry about seeing something you want but only having a few hours before the date changes and the next advent gift is out instead. There are some other really nice free gridwide hunts taking place right now, so don't worry it will be an enjoyable post :) At least I hope so! Meanwhile I hope you have a wonderful Friday, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
