Hiya everyone! I've had a busy morning so far, scooping up as many Advent calendar gifts as I could, and having fun photographing them. So here is a sampling of the wide variety of lovely treats to be found all over the grid to brighten your day.
First we have a great outfit that were 2 boxes packed into the same date on the Christmas tree at Purple Candy. No group needed, just click the red number that matches the current day of the month, and from the #2 today you will receive the Louper Black dress and the Gala Slink High Straps in Black. The dress is in several mesh sizes, the shoes have a fun heel that looks like a rounded triangle and would probably be more comfy in RL than a wobbly stiletto. The gold buckles are a great accent too!
For something a bit more festive, be sure to visit *SOIR* and click their Advent calendar for this outfit called Lumi Short Red. No group needed, and the generous gift includes the mesh dress in various sizes, the matching scarf and fun hat(not shown but included are system layer white lace fingerless gloves). Since they're separate pieces you can leave off the scarf and/or hat of course, but I'm enjoying the complete look.
Emerald Couture has 2 different displays out and I know it says you need their group tag, but I have clicked them both days with no tag and received gifts. Today one of the gifts is this fun African Princess in Golden, and includes the top and skirt each in standard mesh sizes plus a pair of matching sandals not shown. While you're there, be sure to check their lucky chairs right below one of the Advent boards, as I'd also won a cute dress from one of them.
If you need a sexy casual outfit, this is today's Advent calendar gift from Kamiri. They do require a group tag which is free to join, and there are lucky boards upstairs for group members along with group gifts and more. Today's gift is called Mariccucia Outfit with appliers, and the system layers for the top and jeans each have a Mega HUD and a TMP applier for your meshy needs. I love the little details like the hearts on the legs, and the mesh cuffs that are included.
It's time to peek at some gorgeous nails! On the left half of the photo, I've got the KittyCatS Advent Calendar gift which today is from La Boheme, and as a big fan of theirs I am tickled pink (and blue and teal and orange and red...) over this set! They are the [LB O Tannenbaum] OMNI Sets in silver and in gold, each of which comes in HUDs for Maitreya, Slink/Omega mani, and Slink/Omega pedi. 10 colors on each HUD, with metallic accents. On the right side of the photo, I am showing two different gifts. The hand on the left/top of that panel is the GeMyles Slink Christmas French Reindeer Nails, 2 designs each in red and green. Their group is free to join and the tag is needed, and the boxes are hidden all over so it's also a hunt. I never even managed to find the Day 1 prize >.< The right/bottom hand is the daily Hello Dave group Advent gift, a single design of deep red with such pretty gold swirls adorning it.
Rather than a nail note today, I actually have a note on the eyes I'm wearing...Inkheart does create really impressive eyes, and today's Advent gift of Glass Eyes in Wind are no exception. A soft silvery shade, I noticed they looked to have a hint of either blue or green depending on the light and surroundings. As with yesterday's gift that I also blogged, they come in system and mesh versions, each in 3 sizes. Another note I should mention is that I decided to try a Teeth HUD from Tuli (whose free tattoo layer parted lips I usually wear on here) so $195 and several minutes of fiddling later, I am sporting a slightly different smile and have the possibility of changing the teeth via the HUD. They are visible through your choice of 4 different alpha layers, and the fiddling I mentioned is that I was irritated with my shape's mouth in general so started playing with those sliders. I am trying to look happy rather than pouty, nothing too extreme.
Have a beautiful day, and magical magpie hugs to all of you!!
