I promise I don't just shop. Although it sometimes feels like that. Yesterday I took a multi-tasking trip out to these old underwater ruins, I haven't been there for a while and I wanted to photograph this Mermaid tail. Quarantine put these mesh Mer-tails up for sale at the Zombie Popcorn Carnival. Overall I like these tails a lot because they are mesh instead of a pair of pants with fins and a crotch-flap-cover-thingy and an Animation that keeps your legs together. (If you have bought a Mer-tail before you must know what I mean.)

By the way, today is the last day of the Carnival so you really should hustle and get your cute bum over there if you forgot or want to go back to pick up a few more things. It's very fun and no longer a lagfest. You're out of excuses :D

This lovely lewelry from Ellabella is available there too. The gorgeous hair from booN is an old favorite that covers all my bits, but putting it on I couldn't help wishing he would pretty-pretty-please redo it in mesh! (All the long bits go through my body in bendy poses like those in my old Mermaid AO.)

... in case you'd like to visit. It looks like a linden-built (mole-built) feature with a few treasure chests lying around in the depths for those who like that sort of thing. I wish they would build more of this kind of exploring spot, only with a bit better build quality. It might be inspirational for more mainlanders :)

The sun is on its way down, and I'm getting ready to go hunting. No, not hunting for prey, silly. Today I'd rather go hunting for clothes. And shoes.

I already found these. I love how the little silver studs on the shoes go with the subtle sequin shine on these slacks. But I love most how cute my little toes look with these little straps.

I think the black stretch outfit would be perfect for a hunter looking to blend with the dark. And also fashionable, dressed up with a few smart accessories. Sometimes I like to keep it simple.

Thinking back and enjoying the retro chic. I found this Schadenfreude dress at Collabor88 and I bopped over to the Artilleri sim to take pics with the retro houses. Takes me waaaay back.

When I purchased this dress I was planning to put together a sophisticated look with a patent purse and high heels, but then I noticed that in addition to the usual standard mesh sizes, the package included a childrens' sized dress, less curvaceous and a little longer than the womens' sizes. The childrens' size is the one I am wearing because I like the idea. :D There are also a couple of experimental versions that deform to your shape if you are using a particular test viewer, ... I haven't tried those yet. That will be nice for the non- 'standard' avatar shapes. I'm thinking of you, Khitten Kurka.

I still like to visit Ode occasionally, especially if I am going to photograph something rather sweet and garden-party-ish. I thought this summery blouse from Fishy Strawberry might fit that description, especially paired with these daintily elaborate jewels.

Would you like a cup of lemongrass tea?

Aauugh, those lights. Halogen. Maybe I need sunglasses at night.

Whoever you are, get out of that car and we'll see who gets the upper hand.

Stupid shatterproof windshield.

I've just gotta get outta here.

I shuffled away from the lights and went hunting ... on the Mesh Around Hunt. I figure Zombie Stank thins the hunt crowd and reduces lag. :D

(Actually skull-and-zombie themed goods have been making their way into my inventory lately ... what is it almost October? ... so I figured it was kismet. Pirate Arts and Zombie Suicide are two new-to-me shops that have recently dropped me review copies. Thanks!)

This color of Evie's Ellora II Gown and matching fae wings is no longer available, I believe, but other jewel toned colors are still available, including a version in vivid crimson that sells to benefit Relay for Life. The little sculpted flowers and tendrils at the neck and armband are making me smile right now. They also are available for Yabusaka's cutie little Petites.

And the brand new Kooqla "Okania" skin has debuted at the Skin Addiction Showcase in three four skin tones. This "Hydra" skintone really is tinged with purple; it doesn't just look like this because of lighting. And these lips are just juicy. (You can see the vendor photo here .)

Skin: Kooqla "Okania (Hydra)" (Skin Addiction Showcase)
