Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Cosmopolitan gifts to share from their group Advent tree, since they are available for a few more days when the current round ends on the 9th. I always enjoy my visits there, and it is fun to have Advent gifts still available in January all at once :) I still recommend derendering the tree itself (try right clicking on the star or where you are sure there is not a stocking) to reveal all the clickable stockings. There are a few dozen gifts to claim with your free Cosmopolitan group tag, and it is quite an impressive variety of clothing, accessories, and home decor. I consider it to be a consistent and respected group of designers who take part in this event, so that also makes it a pleasure to visit.
My first look starts with the .Safira. gift called Hana Dress Black, which comes in a solid black version and a black floral one. They are each provided in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya sizing, with built in panties that can be turned off/on or tinted your choice of 20 colors via HUD. I couldn't help but notice that the flowers in that pattern reminded me of the blossoms on the [CAROL G] Luz Arms TaTToo Color gift, so it made sense to show them together :) This tattoo is included as system/BOM layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink, all with 35, 50, 75, and 100% opacity. This way you can choose the intensity and have it look fresher or a bit faded if you prefer. The intricate design is accentuated by not only those flowers, but a few hearts in each inner elbow crease and each hand's middle finger knuckle ♥.
I also had a lot of fun with the -:zk:- gift, which is called Nancy Outfit FATPACK. The top, skirt, and sleeves each come in Legacy and Maitreya sizes, and there are two HUDs included to adjust all the various colors and textures. The one for the top handles the sleeves as well, with 20 choices for the top, 20 for the ribbon, 20 solids & 11 plaids for the tie, 20 button colors, 20 lace colors, 14 metals, and 6 gemstones for the diamond in the middle of the spider on the tie. (Yes, the jewelry you see on the tie is a spider!) As for the skirt, that has a HUD with 20 solid colors and 11 plaids for the skirt itself, 20 solids for the panties with on/off option, 5 colors for the belt, and 14 metals for the buckle. As you can tell, there are endless possibilities here and you can wear this in so many ways!
RAPTURE has a gift waiting on the tree too, this beautiful Leni-Rice dress. It has a playful wide neckline and great knit texture, skimming our curves all the way down to the knee. The gift includes Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes.
Perhaps you need something more formal, then be sure to click the Seniha stocking to claim their Yeliz Gown // Teal. This beauty has cutouts on both sides of the midriff, and a flower where each side of the halter strap connects to the bodice. It comes in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing for the most popular mesh bodies.
My final look this evening comes from AVALE and is their Vixy - Grey dress. This is provided in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, with a HUD that lets you choose from 12 textures for the bands around the waist. There are 7 solid colors and 5 with words, so you can express what's on your mind by displaying it on your midriff if you so choose :) The one that says Go Away might be useful in RL these days rather than SL, if you have people who like to encroach on your personal space.
I did not get much rest thanks to my sleep being interrupted a few times, so I am tired but doing my best to share with all of you :) I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
