There are some great outfits to be found - my favourites are below - and also odds and ends like furniture, seasonal gifties, and even an intriguing musical instrument from Silk Worms!

Your taxi is waiting at the end.

30L Midwinter Fair - Sawadee Silks from Zibber's Designs and Unwrapped Gift from Libertine

It's Midwinter Fair time!

Lots of your favourite Gorean designers (including Luas, Gem Designs, May's Soul, Trident, Soul Effects and Vigo) gathered together in one sim, with some special 30L offers and a hunt with lots of freebie items.  What's not to to love?!

As well as clothing for slaves and free, there's some nice furniture and landscaping, and best of all, quite a few skins for 30L too. Full price items too, so don't assume everything's on sale.

Here's two of my favourite haul items - both were 30L offers. (One is the silk, the other is the rug!)

Zaara - Red tag sale

There's a red tag sale at Zaara until 25th December - look for the outfits marked with a red tab, and pick yourself up some 50% off bargains!

Zaara's specialty is ethnic clothes and jewelry of the Indian sub-continent. Their Nizam set - especially the head jewels - are famous in SL!

Zaara designs are not explicitly designed for roleplay wear, but there's no reason why you couldn't have a look and see what might be possible.

For instance, I found a lehenga choli that could make a nice bellydance outfit, and a couple of tops that coud be a fun addition to a kajira's wardrobe!

Of course, it helps that the outfits on sale are in the kajira's favourite colour, red...

Free silks - Christmas gift from Gem Designs

Thanks to Gem Designs, who've left out no less than three colourways of the 'New Flower' silks as a Christmas gift.

The jewel-tone silks (gold, green and purple) each come with long and short skirt options. Otherwise they're fairly simple and straightforward - but awfully pretty!

Silks of the Siren - Siren's Beauty silks

It's been a while, but it seems there's a flurry of creativity over at Silks of the Siren - hooray! It's great to see new things from Draelle Chandler and hopefully 2012 will see lots of her stunning creations.

There's a new red camisk out, and some silver-themed outfits for Twisted Krissmuss (only 100L), but I'm most excited about the new silks - Siren's Beauty.

Free gowns and fairy outfits - the Angelwing hunt

The Angelwing holiday hunt kicked off today and runs until 30 December,  with six amazing outfits for you to find.

Yes, the lag is crippling... but take a look at the prizes. You could wait a couple of days... or get your hunt on at 3am SLT!

Minimal words and your carriage awaits you at the end ;)

Soedara - Lotus silks

To quote the designer herself, the latest range from Soedara includes absolutely ' NO PG stuff! :)' ! So, as always, I've taken my trusty pasties out of the closet.

Free silks - Silks Mar on camp chair in Sweet Kajira

Got 95 mins to spare? Well if you're prepared to cool your heels a while, you could earn yourself a new set of (very skimpy!) silks.

May's Soul - Afrodita silks

Eek! I'm falling behind! December is always so busy...

Anyway here's a quick look at some silks I picked up recently - the Afrodita set from May's Soul, which have a decidely rustic feel.

Painfully Divine - knit kirtle on midnight mania

This toasty kirtle is currently up on the midnight mania boards at Painfully Divine.

It includes two undershirts so you can make the outfit suitable for lots of medieval or fantasy roleplay, not just bondmaids! Pictured here is the white, but there's also a black version provided.

Free silks - new Soedara group gift gold silk

Another group gift from Soedara! Just a couple of quick shots before you run down to grab your copy (there was some stampede earlier, I can tell you).

Free silks - Blossom freebie and midnight mania

Moor Ravenheart, designer of *Blossom* has left a really nice freebie out at her Isle of Tyros store.

It's an adult sim though, so if you haven't sorted your age verification, you might not be able to gain access.

Soedara - Triumph of Ariadne silks line

More Amazing new releases from Soedara - the Triumph of Ariadne range features three kids of silks and a Gorean sirik.

(I'm going to skip over the sirik because this is silks girl, not chains girl, blog!)

I hope you're better at making decisions than I am, because you're going to have to make a lot of them!

Black Friday event - 35L silks, camisks and kirtle at Arachne Silks

There's a great big Black Friday event going on at Arachne silks, with six different ranges all reduced to 35L.

Sale continues until Sunday (27 November) do don't delay.

I grabbed a few quick shots of some little treats I picked up. (The backdrop, by the way, is an Arachne Minuette dance prop. But they also make mighty fine photo props!)

Roawenwood - 60L weekend sale - Isolda silks in Ice

Sales in Second Life can be a great way to grab some new gear, without making too huge of a dent in your Linden allowance.

The Sixty Linden Weekends have a huge mix of merchants. I always run to check the latest photo backgrounds from PNP and see if there's nice hair on offer from Ava-Tare.

Roawenwood are back in the 60L groove with this gorgeous offering, the Isolda silk in white.

Rag Dollz - Requiem for Arwen gown

This outfit must officially qualify as 'vintage'... it's a Lord of the Rings Inspired gown from Rag Dollz.

I'm happy with how the pics turned out, so I'll let them speak for themselves.

FallnAngel Creations - Roxi silks (black set free on lucky chair!)

I love silks from FallnAngel Creations. Aside from how beautifully baroque they almost inevitably are, they're so easy to fit as they're mostly on clothing layers. So, yay!

These are the Roxi silks, and if you haunt the FallnAngels silks lucky chair, you might be lucky enough to win the set in black.

Racist abuse in Second Life

I'm not Asian, but my default avatar is.

Why some people might get a kick out of calling me an 'asian whore' - when I'm wearing a medieval gown! - I don't know.

Unfortunately mindless cretins like this exist in SL as well as RL.

I've reported the three sub-humans and will be in contact with the sim owner to ask how they propose to deal with this behaviour on their sim.

Soedara - Goddess Nyx silks

Nyx, the Greek goddess of night, is an elusive figure in mythology, but considered "a figure of exceptional power and beauty".

Any girl wanting to pay tribute to the mysterious night and to steal a little of that magic for herself could do worse than take a look at Sodeara's Nyx silks.

(Dodgy pasties are my photoshopping, they don't come with the silk!!)

Second Moon - Mirror Cage II mix'n'match

It was like all my Christmases come at once when this little beauty popped up in my inventory, courtesy of Moonriver Darcy!

You possibly already know the original Mirror Cage set - well, Moonriver has re-invented it in enchanting shades of green and aqua, paired with silver accessories.

Demons and Angels - Viking Princess outfit

This is an interesting outfit for sure - I came across it on the marketplace when I was searching for silks.

It's by fantasy outfitters Piper Shan Designs, otherwise known as Demons and Angels, and it's called 'Viking Princess'.

I really like it, but I can't see it being suitable for a kajira, and I doubt it would pass as a kirtle (what do you think?).

However, I'm sure some Elven huntresses or warrior maidens could put it to some very good use!

35L Sunday at Arachne Silks IV: Aurora silks

Another chance to stock up for less courtesy of Arachne Silks!

This week's featured set is Aurora, which as you can see from the pic is quite a skimpy little number!

Saturday, 12 November 2011

Soedara - Dancer of 3 Moons white seduction silk (50% off!)

Another fantastic silk from Marbella Pronovost of Soedara - and thewhite set is half price for a short time only.

The silk may be white and unpatterened... but it's about as far from plain as you can get!

Tian Xia Hui - HuoDie Chinese outfit

What I love about Tian Xia Hu's roleplay oufits is that they're so much FUN.

Take the HuoDie outfit for instance -which is part the the 60L weekend sales today and tomorrow - it's super-sassy and ridiculously cute.

You've got fur and boots to keep you warm... and plenty of skin on show means everyone will feel the heat!

Second moon - Exquisite Beauty lehenga choli

This outfit isn't new... it's just another one of Moonriver Darcy's stunning creations!

This beautiful black and gold lehenga is part of Moonriver's Exquisite Beauty line, all of which use the same textures.

(Wikipedia explains that the gagra or lehenga choli is the traditional clothing of Rajasthan and Gujarat... choli is the top, lehenga the skirt, and the shoulder drape is a dupatta.)

Solange! - Innocence silks

Yay! A brand new release from Solange.

This beguilingly feminine silk has been a long time in the making - the official release notecard says it's a remake of one of Solange's very first silks, and she's been waiting to complete it for five years.

Quality designs - Shanaya silks

I saw this silk on the marketplace the other day and thought "hmmm, that looks nice".

Then I went to the store, and thought 'wow'!

Quality designs specialise in medieval and celtic clothing, so you'll find lots of gowns and other outfits. I was very impressed and there are definitely a couple of outfits calling me back.

In the meantime, here's one of their newest offerings, the Shanaya silk.

Bella Luna fashion - Winsome in plum

Ooh, I like this look. Makes me feel all Cate Blanchett-y.

Anyways, I have to admit I shamelessly ripped off this outfit from Elayne Diavolo. Not literally of course, but I'm that sort of thing must happen in the rougher sims.

Dream Things - New avatar gift pack (silks, camisk and gown)

Hmm, maybe I'm a bit slow on the uptake today, but I only noticed when I uploaded these pics that all the outfits are in different tones of purple - lavenders, lilacs, plums and grapes.

It gives the gift pack a little extra 'something' - it sits together like a mini-fashion collection.

Pia of Dream Things has got all bases covered with this gift too - there's a camisk, set of silks and a gown, so if you haven't quite figured out your RP station in life, at least you can experiment in style!

Darkly Delicious Hunt - Any colour so long as it's black!

It's Darkly Delicious Hunt time again and some wonderful merchants are participating. I've (very quickly) photographed some of the free outfits you can win below.

Other prizes include a skin from Whatz, gothic-y tiara from Inspired Designs, and chocolate fondue set for two from Roawenwood! Mmm!
