It's the last days of the year, and the last days of the month... which means the current rounds of many events will be over soon.
Earlier in the month, I grabbed a few pieces from We Love Role-Play, among them this gown from Evie's Closet and the Faunus Crown headdress from Gauze & Trap.
There are lots more amazing things this round that I probably won't get the chance to feature, but do make the effort to get down there before the round finishes on 31 December, to take advantage of the discounts.
The choker I'm wearing is from Sweet Thing at The Arcade, from the Song of Swans collection which has some really nice pieces. It's 50L a play, which is reasonable.
In contrast, I definitely think some of the machines at The Arcade can seem overpriced - specifically some of the ones priced at 100L (nb some, not all! 100L for a quality skin is still a pretty good price).
I noticed a version of the Drift's De Vrouw vest at The Dressing Room Fusion but didn't like the colours available there, so I tp'd to the mainstore and picked up the the 'Wildlife' version instead. It's hud controlled, with 10 colours, and you can change both the fur and belt. For 195L, it seems like pretty good value.
Full disclosure - you can't see from the picture, but as the Evie's Closet gown is quite 'poofy', the Drift vest doesn't fit ideally over the rear. (The vest is perfect with slinkier gowns though, I tried with a bunch.) You can get away with this for a photo, but just in case you were considering buying the items to wear together... try the demos first!
One thing I noticed when trawling through my inventory for this look is that there definitely seems to be a shortage of nice elbow length gloves (why are they all latex?!).
Most of the detachable sleeves and armwarmers I own seem to be from the same or very similar templates, which is a little dull. The Blogging Elf mentioned a new set from Stitched recently, so I must go and check them out, but...
If any creators are reading this, pretty please make some nice new gloves and armwarmers for us?!
