Movies, Gachas, and an M.I.A. Punk

So not going into great detail of why I’ve been absent again, I’m planning to move in August due to financial troubles. Basically, I’m unable to save any money for anything because of where I’m living at and after 2 years of living a life that has made no progress I plan to move somewhere that will enable me to change all of that. I know this is pretty much just my SL fashion blog where I let you guys in on great finds that I discover while wandering about SL. I just feel bad when I’m unable to post as much as I would like to due to my real life problems and that I need to give a reason of some sort in efforts to make up for it. I hope you guys understand and continue to check back here now and then to see what’s new. Now then, I have in fact put together 3 new outfits but just as a quick forewarning some of these items may no longer be sold or obtainable. I’m mostly talking about the items in the Maleficent outfit that came from this past Enchantment event. SO SORRY that I could of waited until the event was over to actually make a post but it was definitely not my intention. Anyways, let me go ahead and tell you about these outfits already.MaleficentMaleficent Close-UpMossy Lady
Mossy Lady Close-UpTaxi GirlTaxi Girl Close-Up The Sugar Garden - Veil Horns, Ruffle Platforms, and Heartless Witch Skin – Both the horns and skin were from this past Enchantment event. I know you can still buy the horns at the shop, but since the skin was a gift for the event it’s not currently being sold. There is a skin called Bunny in the Witch tone that you could still try out, but it’s just going to look a bit different. The platform shoes, like all tsg shoes, are made to fit SLink feet only and these in particular will require the SLink Flat Feet. I chose these shoes because the delicate ruffles seemed the perfect match for my lingerie.

Violent Seduction – Thorn Queen Hair and Thorn Queen Lingerie – The hair is still available to purchase in the store but, just like the tsg skin, the lingerie was a gift for the event and is not currently sold. I really love this hair because I’ve looked for this style for ages and haven’t found one as well made as this one. The horns actually fit perfectly on the hair which I don’t think is a coincidence since the shops have worked together in the past. The shop does sell other lingerie that you can still check out even though you can’t get this particular one.

*MishMish* – Malevolent to Hug – A cute little doll to hug and hold and it’s made to look just like Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. Don’t worry, you’re still able to buy this adorable little thing and there is even a tiny avatar version as well (which I of course bought). I just love this shop so much and in my next post you can be sure you’ll see more of them after I visit Summerfest.

Chus! - Lune Lens in Glacier – I’ve worn this style of eyes before but not this particular color so I feel like I get a pass still for not wearing something over and over. I think I may have close to every different kind of eyes from this shop. Not every color but definitely most of the styles. The shop is just my go to place for cute and affordable eyes.

LCKY – Helie II Hair – Yes! I’m back to wearing my LCKY hair. I still have others I need to wear in my next post, but since I only do 3 outfits a post you only get to see 2 for now. It’s so fluffy I’m gunna die! I have a soft spot for pigtails and this shop has the best pigtails in all of SL. These pigtails are so fluffy that they almost look like cotton candy. Please don’t eat them though or I’ll be sad. The shop gave away this particular hair with some new huds with new colors in their group notices. The notice has of course expired now (you really need to join this group so you won’t miss things) but you can still buy the hair.

Schadenfreude - Watercolor Tights and Watercolor Spanda Ballet Flats – I think these are both in the main shop by now since they were first released at Collabor88 2 months ago. The flats can be worn with your normal feet or with the SLink flat feet, and I’m very grateful the creator gave both options. I of course bought the fatpack for the shoes, as I often do with Schadenfreude, because I love being able to mix the patterns and colors and it’s like I’m never wearing the same pair. It’s like the shop read my mind when I saw there were matching tights to go with the shoes. Don’t worry, the tights have SLink appliers included with them.

+Half-Deer+ and Birdy @ The Arcade - +Half-Deer+ Summer Delights Melty Sunglasses (Gold) and Birdy [Alchemy] Story Book Mossyback Pink – Both of these items can only be found at The Arcade until the end of the month. If you don’t know what The Arcade is, it’s a gacha event meaning these 2 items can only be obtained by playing their corresponding gacha machines and hopefully winning them if you’re lucky enough. Fortunately, these are common prizes so I don’t think you’ll have too much trouble. The glasses actually come with a hud that will allow you to change their lens color by selecting one of the different options given to you. The Mossyback holdable is really neat in the way that it moves its legs as you hold him/her. The movement made the little creature seem like it was alive, and it happens to be one of my favorite things I got from The Arcade.

[Pink Fuel] - Harley Crystal Skin – Finally a new skin from Pink Fuel! I’ve been wearing this non-stop since I got it because it’s just so beautifully made. I wore this skin in my third outfit as well and I will tell you why. Firs off, my glasses are covering most of my face so I felt like this one outfit didn’t present it well enough. Secondly, the skin has SO MANY OPTIONS make-up wise as you can probably tell by looking at the 2 outfits. The make-up really makes it look like a totally different skin. Also, almost any applier you might possibly need is available for it which makes things even better.

::{u.f.o}:: @ Collabor88 - Sailor Boyish Outfit – So the theme of this month’s Collabor88 is “To the Lighthouse” which may be my favorite theme so far because I love nautical things. There’s still another sort of sailor outfit I plan to get by *katat0nik*, but the color and style of this one matched so perfectly with everything else that I had to get it. The look of the outfit is so innocent and adorable and pairs so nicely with tights. The other colors are also very cute so I may have to grab one of them soon.

LCKY - Eilfie Hair – I’m just sort of stuck on pigtails lately and I really blame the owner of LCKY for it. The messy buns on either side and the tendrils of hair coming down around the face just make this hair look so lovely. Just like most hairs from the shop, you can easily add a bow or some accessory to the hair and make it look even more awesome.

Pure Poison @ The Arcade - Train Bag – Yup, if you want this wonderfully made bag you’ll just have to play the shop’s gacha machine at The Arcade. I’m really surprised it was only a common prize considering the great detail put into it. It really makes me wish I had this bag in real life (if it exists please tell me!). If the bag seems too big for you, there is a handy resizer script inside of it so it can be worn with any size avatar.

Chus! - Tin-Tin Lenses – If you’re not in the Chus! group then you better join it right now because this color of the eyes is the current group gift in notices. Once the notices expire so will the gift and you’re only option will be to actually purchase the eyes. That’s not necessarily a bad thing since are definitely worth the $L, but who can say no to a free pair of well-made eyes.

[Pink Fuel] - Harley Crystal Skin, Cherry Lipstick, and Heavy Smoke Shimmer Eyeshadow – All I added was eyeshadow and lipstick and look how different the skin looks now. Why buy a ton of different skins when you can just buy one and combine it with a ton of different make-up options to form new skins. This skin shop will always be one of my favorites and hopefully I can convince you guys to make it one of yours.

The Sugar Garden - Basic Black Bra and Gigi HairBow – These little hairbows are so cute with their little gem hearts right in the center. They come with a hud that you can choose what color lace you want their trim to be. but I chose the “no lace” option since it didn’t really go with the style of the outfit. Since the dress is sort of “revealing” I chose to quickly grab a basic black bra from the shop to cover up my ta-tas. It’s really a great option for us modest ladies out there.

The Sugar Garden @ Kustom9 - Gigi Heels – So many events going on and it’s having me run all over to get my tsg fix. The heels are made to go with the SLink High Feet which I purchased just to wear these shoes (they were just too cute). Just like the hairbows, the bows on the shoes have little gem hearts and have the option to be trimmed with different colors of lace. I think these shoes are my new favorite from this shop with the Lolita Platforms being a close second.

The Sugar Garden @ Level Up - Racer Girl Dress – Level Up is a unique quarterly sales event feautiring 40 of SL’s hottest creators. From furniture to fashion, this event has it all, and it is all themed around a video game genre. The current theme is Racing Games and tsg has came out with these awesome dresses that have a checkered finish line going down the front. I chose the yellow version mostly because it reminds me so much of a taxi. I know that may seem odd, but I just really like the thought of dressing up as a taxi girl carrying luggage and roaming about the city. For those who don’t like their boobies hanging about, you can still have fun in this dress by pairing it with a top or you can be like me and just grab a bra from the main shop.

Because My Dad and Sailor Moon…

So why has it been awhile since my last post? It’s because my Dad and nephew recently visited me for a little over a week. Also, before they arrived I was scrounging up lindens to buy and complete these Sailor Moon outfits. The combination of trying to finish outfits and my family visiting made it super difficult to really get any blog stuff done. Now that I have free time again, I will hurry and get this post done so I can move onto the next one. Now I’m really sorry but most of this stuff you will have to either get TODAY from the Cutie Moon Fair or wait until the shops decide to put the items in their main stores. This is the last day of the fair which is sad but also good since there are no longer crowds. There are over 30 designers and all of their items for sale are Sailor Moon related. You have no idea how excited I was when I found out about this event because I’m a HUGE Sailor Moon fan. Anyways, here are the 3 outfits like always, and hopefully I can get this post published quickly giving you guys enough time to pick this stuff up.
School Sailor School Sailor Close-UpSailor MoonSailor Moon Close-UpSailor Venus  Sailor Venus Close-UpViolent Seduction - Usagi Hair – Before the Cutie Moon Fair this shop released a Sailor Moon hair to go with the Sailor Moon lingerie created by The Sugar Garden. It’s a very adorable style that isn’t so outrageous you couldn’t wear it with other outfits. I think this may be the first and only hair Violent Seduction has created so hopefully there will be more styles in the future considering how nicely this one turned out.

.Atomic., B.C.C., and The Sugar Garden @ Cutie Moon Fair - .Atomic. Scout Bag and Scout Stockings, B.C.C. Baby Moon Outfit Dress, The Sugar Garden Disguise Pen, and Cutie Moon Fair Locket Gift – The Scout Bag is actually from a gacha machine at the fair and so if you want the Sailor Moon version you’ll just have to try your luck. Oh and in case you don’t know, the Sailor Venus version has an Artemis key chain on it instead of Luna. The stockings however aren’t from a gacha and you can buy any Scout’s color you want. I of course grabbed my 2 favorites Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus. B.C.C. happened to have this cute sailor dress out that reminded me a lot of the school uniform Usagi would wear when she wasn’t Sailor Moon. There is a HUD included with the dress that allows you to change the look of the skirt, such as it having stripes or no stripes. The Sugar Garden released so many accessories from Sailor Moon as you can see in all of these outfits I put together. The Disguise Pen can be worn in the mouth or hand but I thought it looked better as a mouthie. The locket is actually FREE at the fair and you can pick it up at the landing point when you first arrive. When you wear it make sure to click it for a neat little surprise.

Intrigue Co. @ The Seasons Story - Cat’s Meow Flats – The Seasons Story is a special event that, you guessed it, only happens once every season. The season that all the items are currently based on is of course Spring, and the event will last until the end of this month. When I saw the black cat flats offered by Intrigue Co. I just had to get them to wear with this outfit. The flats reminded me a lot of the black cat in Sailor Moon named Luna. These shoes were made to be worn with SLink flat feet only so if you don’t have them then the shoes will not fit properly on your avatar.

ROZENA - Erica Baby Doll Skin – Normally I don’t have the lindens to buy new skins at full price so lucky for me ROZENA had a 50% off sale. The sale is long over now I think but this and many other lovely skins can still be found at the shop. I really like this skin because the makeup is not overdone and is a perfect cutesy kind of look.

[taketomi x Essences] - Sailor Eyes – These eyes are part of a set that can be found in the Sailor Moon hair packs currently at taketomi. Essences did a collaboration with taketomi so every Sailor Moon hair pack includes hair, a tiara, 2 skins, a set of eyes, and some lipsticks. I’m wearing only the eyes in this outfit but you can see the hairs and stuff in the other pictures. The eyes are nicely done with small and large sizes included.

Violent Seduction and The Sugar Garden @ Cutie Moon Fair - Violent Seduction Eternal Uniforms Moon and The Sugar Garden Hoshi Crystal Compact – Violent Seduction was the only shop to make sailor scout uniforms but the creator made them very well and they’re also fitted mesh. The uniforms being fitted mesh means they will fit more than just the standard sizes you normally find with mesh clothing. Here is another one of The Sugar Garden’s accessories which is one of Sailor Moon’s compacts. I’m wearing the necklace version but there is also a holdable version included as well.

*G Field* – Long Cuff Boots Will Red – I was having a really difficult time finding boots that looked like the ones Sailor Moon wore. I actually found out about these boots by browsing flickr (I spend way too much time on there). You can change the texture on the top of the boots by using the HUD that is included. They look really close to the character’s boots just the little moons are missing.

Adam n Eve - Opera Gloves – These gloves were a perfect match to the outfit. What makes them better than just normal white gloves is that they also come with SLink appliers for the SLink hands. You can see I also wore them in the third outfit because I really didn’t want to take them off, and Sailor Venus wears the same style gloves too.

[taketomi x Essences] - Sailor Eyes, Sailor Moon light rose Skin, Usagi Hair, and Usagi Moon Visor – All of these things can be found in the Usagi Hair pack. These are the same eyes from before but now you can see the other bits included with them. The skin is of course an Essences skin and is equal in high quality when compared to their other skins. The baubles you see in the hair can be hidden just by using the HUD that is included in the pack.

The Sugar Garden - Moonlight Magic – Kaleido Moon Scope RARE – If you can’t tell by the name, this is a gacha prize that is also RARE. So you will have to try your luck with the machine and hope you win this wand. If you can’t seem to win this one don’t worry because there are other Sailor Moon wands you can buy at the Cutie Moon Fair right now.

Adam n Eve - Opera Gloves – Yup it’s these gloves again that you saw in the previous outfit. There was really no point in trying to find different gloves when these were already such a perfect match., Violent Seduction and The Sugar Garden @ Cutie Moon Fair – Venus Heels, Violent Seduction Eternal Uniforms Venus, and The Sugar Garden Spiral Heart Rod Venus – I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find heels for my Sailor Venus outfit but luckily made heels based off of the character which made things so much easier. The heels were made to work with the SLink feet only and won’t work with your avatar’s normal feet. Of course I wore another one of the uniforms made by Violent Seduction because there really isn’t any others that could compare. Then there’s the rod offered by The Sugar Garden that, unlike the gacha version, casts spells when using the neat little HUD that comes with it.

[taketomi x Essences] – Sailor Eyes, Sailor Venus midday Skin, Sailor Lipstick, Minako Hair, and Minako Venus Visor – This time I wore a different colored version of the eyes that you saw before. They’re a lighter blue and just simply look great. Here is another skin that looks very similar to the Sailor Moon skin but is a different tone. I also decided to wear one of the many lipsticks made to go with the skin. I can definitely see myself wearing this hair in other outfits because of the lovely bow in the back. It’s what the character wore but it also looks like a bow a lolita girl would wear because of its adorableness.

Skin Fair Part 2

So I finally finished the second part of my Skin Fair findings, but only 2/3 of these skins are from the fair since I kind of ran out of lindens after grabbing the skin offered by The Sugar Garden. This also means the outfits I put together for you guys were mostly cheap or I had purchased them previously. Don’t worry though because I think they all look very cute and maybe even sexy which isn’t a common look I try to pull off. Anyways lets get this done quickly before any of this stuff becomes unavailable (like that Zig vest).
Daffodil Daffodil Close-Up Demoness Demoness Close-Up Rosey Shepherd Rosey Shepherd  Close-UpThe Sugar Garden @ Skin Fair - Eun-Seo Skin – This was actually the one skin I was most excited about being debuted at the fair. The shop earlier released a new tone for their skins at a different event but they hadn’t really released a new skin in awhile. So obviously the first thing I did was try out the demo and hope it looked good on my shape because I wanted it so bad. I think this has to be their best skin yet and I can’t wait to see what they will come out with next.

Schadenfreude, ~silentsparrow~, and The Secret Store @ The Arcade - Schadenfreude Bunbit Zig, ~silentsparrow~ Zig Snugglewarmers, and The Secret Store Daffodils Bouquet – I’ve made a previous post about the ~silentsparrow~ Snugglewarmers and because they’re just so awesome I thought I’d show off another style that you can win from the gachas. What’s so great about the Zig style is that there is a matching Bunbit offered by Schadenfreude. I love these little bunnies and so I let my little bunny buddy hangout on my shoulder. I felt like something was still missing from this outfit and then I discovered the wildflowers gacha machine by The Secret Store. The Daffodils Bouquet was a great little touch and the yellow of the flowers matched well with the yellow and blue in the outfit. Now because all 3 of these items are in The Arcade event you will just have to be lucky and try to win them from the gacha machines. None of them are rare so maybe it won’t be too difficult and you can always try to trade for them in The Arcade’s group chat.

Schadenfreude - Zig Lightning Deep Vest, Dreamlander Heels, and Lightning Kneehigh Socks – If you want this vest you’ll have TODAY ONLY to grab it for the low price of 50L because it’s part of a special set for the Fifty Linden Fridays weekly event. The socks are a little darker than the other Zig pieces but the style is the same so I thought they were a good match. Now these heels if you are in the store’s group are completely FREE. The only catch is the group itself is not free and costs 250L to join. The gifts are always great quality though so I’d say it’s well worth the one time fee.

*BOOM* - Vintage Runners Shorts – I got these shorts a long while back and they’re actually part of a set that also includes a cute little baseball tee. I was mostly looking for something yellow to cover my bottom that would also go well with my vest and luckily these shorts worked great.

Candy Mountain - My Dear Eyes Ocean – I don’t even know what’s left to say about these eyes anymore since I’ve posted about them SO MANY times. I mean you should know by now how much I love wearing them, and I’m even wearing a different colored version in another outfit of this post. I did recently start going to a new eye shop which I will discuss when I talk about the 3rd outfit.

Chus! - Ulzzang Makeup – I’m sorry but this makeup isn’t something you can buy. Instead the only way to obtain it is by going to the shop and waiting for your letter to come up on the lucky board. Now it’s completely FREE but it will require some time and patience. So far I’ve only tried it on skins by TSG and it honestly makes the skins look even better if that’s possible.

TRUTH - Maisy Hair – Its been awhile since I last bought a new hair from this shop but this one is simply adorable. You can wear the hair with or without the buns, but I like it much better with the buns attached. The hairstyle reminds me of a sort of Japanese style that’s cutesy like my outfit.

Akeruka @ Skin Fair – Twiggy Skin – So just like my previous post, I decided to try out a skin shop that I hadn’t really shopped at before. I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice this skin looked on me, and it helped me greatly to put together this sort of sexy mature look. There are also lipsticks you can wear with the skin and I happen to be wearing the one called Rosso which is a sort of dark red color.

Plastik. - Nephele Collar, Cailin Dress, and Aidan Stilettos – All 3 of these items were part of this set called Morrigan Outfit, and I had bought it during a different Fifty Linden Friday. I’m unsure if the set is still sold together or separately, but I can say it’s definitely not at the sale price of 50L anymore like it was when I bought it. My favorite part of this outfit has to be the cutout part of the dress. It’s very well done and only shows some of my leg and not too much of anything else. I’m glad the outfit came with the shoes and collar since I’m unsure what I would have chosen to go with it otherwise.

[Due] - Nati Hair – The shop is currently having a 50% OFF SALE and it is supposed to last until April 2nd. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up some more hair from there before it’s too late but so far I’ve only managed to get this one. I chose this hair because I like the wavy style of it, and it seems like the right kind of hair to go with my freckle faced skin.

+Half-Deer+ @ The Arcade - Aventine Horns Wicked – This gacha machine took so much of my money that I managed to get every common prize (after a long time 2 rares) and this is one of those commons. All of the horns are actually very nice and well made so I don’t mind wearing these, and they happen to go great with my dress. Remember if you want these specifically you’ll just have to try and win them from the machine.

Candy Mountain - My Dear Eyes hazel – Here are the different colored yet same eyes I had mentioned before. Why do they have to look so good with my avi? I can’t seem to stop wearing them in all of my outfits, and it’s driving me crazy because I want to wear different things.

+Half-Deer+ @ The Arcade - Shepherd’s Staff RARE and Aventine Horns Pastella Gothica RARE – I am a cruel cruel person to even put these in a post because they were so difficult for me to get, and I can just imagine that it will be the same for you guys. Now of course you’re free to play the gacha machines and try to win these 2 items but because they’re RARE be prepared to spend a good bit. What I love about these specific horns is that they come with their own HUD that allows you to change the color of the horns, flowers, and even the metal part of the headband.

[LCKY] - Harime Hair – I told the creator of this hair and I’ll tell you guys the same thing. These are now my favorite pigtails that I own. I’ve always wanted big pigtails like these, and they are even curled almost like the anime pigtails you see that resemble drills. I only wish they came in a color that was a mix of the light blue color you see in the pictures and a light pink. Maybe it will happen one day but I still love this hair nonetheless.

(Yummy) and The Secret Store @ Collabor88 - (Yummy) Quinn Frames and The Secret Store Oxford Heels – If you don’t own the SLink medium feet I’m sorry but you won’t be able to wear these heels properly since they were made to be worn with those feet specifically. The shoes are very adorable though and even come in my favorite color. They sort of remind me of these shoes I purchased from another shop but I can’t remember which one. While I was picking up these shoes I noticed (Yummy) had some cute glasses out so I scooped them up as well. I think they’re a nice addition to the outfit and I know I will wear them with more outfits in the future.

Tee*fy - Aurora Nightdress Ocean Catch – Oh my gods, Punk, stop with the gacha stuff already! This is my addiction, I’ve come to accept it. This dress was from the shop’s gacha machine that was at The Arcade a few rounds back but now I think it’s at the shop’s main location. I’m such a sucker for nautical things and, if you can’t tell in the picture, the top of the dress is covered in little whales.

Pink Fuel @ Adore&Abhor 6 Year Anniversary Event - Sora Sugoi Skin – Adore&Abhor has just turned 6 years old and to celebrate many shops are offering exclusive items at discounted prices for the event. This event is going on right now and will last until April 16th so you still have some time to get this skin. Another new skin by Pink Fuel for me to fangirl over and what makes this one so special is that it includes special pastel brow colors! Light blue brows to go with my light blue hair, I’m so happy.

IKON - Promise Eyes Blush – If you ever pay attention to the skin ads by Pink Fuel you may notice the beautiful eyes that appear in them. Normally those eyes are actually from IKON and not until recently have I bought eyes from this shop. They do seem to cost a bit more than the packs of eyes I normally buy, but the quality is amazing. I kind of bought these eyes as a tester to see if I’d consider buying others, and I think the next time I have some extra money I will absolutely have to pick up a few more pairs.

Skin Fair 2014 Part 1

This year, The Skin Fair will take place from Friday, March 14, through Sunday, March 30. The fair will showcase new and exclusive skins from over 120 designers from around the grid. You can expect to find skins and makeup that would appeal to everyone including men and women, children, fantasy, and even mesh avatars. The fair covers three sims this year so more people can shop at once but there is a strict script policy so wear as little as possible. The sims are also PG so make sure to cover your naughty bits if you decide to go naked. As you can tell by this post’s title, this is only part 1 of what I plan to show you guys and part 2 will be at a later date. It’s mostly because I only do 3 outfits at a time which means 3 skins at a time, and I of course picked up more than just 3. So, let’s hurry this along so we can get to part 2 already.Picnic TimePicnic Time Close-Up Strawberry Waitress Strawberry Waitress Close-Up Biscuit Lady Biscuit Lady Close-Up
Elysium @ Skin Fair - Shui Skin Creme Tone – Something I love about this fair is that you discover skin shops you’ve never bought from before, and for me that would be all 3 of the skins’ shops in this post. I love the Asian look this particular skin is going for and it compliments my small-eyed shape nicely. I do miss my big eyes from time to time so maybe next post I’ll use that shape again. There are many different lipsticks available for this skin but since the outfit is sort of innocent, I thought going natural would be best.

/Wasabi Pills/ - Maya Mesh Hair – No LCKY this time, mostly because I couldn’t seem to match a style that I haven’t shown with these outfits. So it’s back to the good ol’ reliable Wasabi Pills. I have to say I really love this hair and it’s mostly because of the cute parted fringe. The thick waviness of the hair is also nice and makes it seem like it has a lot of volume.

BeetleBones - Linen Puff Sleeve Dress and Fowler Boots Ash – I know I’ve worn these boots before in a previous post but they weren’t this color so maybe I can pass. The dress is simply stunning and makes me feel like a little peasant girl in the woods about to enjoy a picnic with her friend the mouse. Although with my studded ears maybe I’m not very peasant-like.

*MishMish* - Mouse on a Basket – I’m sorry folks but this basket is no longer for sale since it was a limited edition exclusive for Enchantment. I know it’s cruel of me to post about an item you can’t obtain, but I love it too much not to wear it atleast for a moment. It even came with a tiny mouse separate from the basket that now sits on my desk amongst a MishMish music box and the tres blah vanity set that was in a past Arcade round (maybe I’ll post a picture on flickr sometime).

Auxiliary - Purrrfect Headband Choco Cherry RARE – If the word “RARE” in the name wasn’t a big enough hint, this item can only be won from the shop’s gacha machine. It was once at The Arcade but can now be found at the shop’s main location. Since this is a rare, it can be very difficult to obtain if you’re not lucky. Still, feel free to give it a try since the headband really is adorable.

[sYs] @ Skin Fair - Anju Skin Porcelaine – I’ve heard about this shop before but I just never visited or bought anything from there. I really regret it now considering how wonderful this skin looks on my shape. The makeup looks great giving off a somewhat mature look, and the eyebrows aren’t a bushy mess like some skins appear to have lately.

*katat0nik* and Schadenfreude @ Collabor88 - *katat0nik* Working Girl Dress and Schadenfreude Business Basics Helter Heels – The theme for this round of Collabor88 is “Back to Business”, and luckily that means you can find some awesome heels and a stylish dress. As soon as I saw the ad for this dress I had to get it because it matched perfectly with my cameo hat that I won from The Arcade. Afterwards I noticed Schadenfreude had some new heels out, and of course I bought the fatpack so I could mix and match colors with the convenient HUD included.

*katat0nik* and {B.C.C.} @ The Arcade - *katat0nik* White Rabbit Cameo Hat and {B.C.C.} YumYum Mochi Tray Bear Cinnamon [Strawberry Syrup] – Since these are both gacha items you will just have to play the machines and try to win them. I love these cameo hats *kata0nik* has come out with because of the cute little characters, ribbons, and lace. I get to look adorable and sophisticated at the same time. The yumyum mochi trays are also cute but I’m little worried someone might try and eat the little animals.

Clawtooth – Behind the Curtain Hair – I could have sworn I had worn this hair in a previous post but looking back I guess I hadn’t. What I like most about this hair is that it looks like it was swung onto one shoulder which I tend to do a lot with my hair in real life land. I also like the little piece of hair that still dangles in front of my face like it wouldn’t stay behind my ear.

Candy Mountain - Wrath Eyes Brown – I’m so annoyed with myself that I didn’t notice I wore these eyes in this and the first outfit. That’s why I didn’t list them before because it would probably sound redundant. I meant to wear a different pair of eyes with this outfit but it’s too late now. Either way the eyes are lovely and I’ve worn this kind in posts before, I just wish I had atleast chosen to wear a different color.

{ Precious } @ Skin Fair - Rose Skin and Peachy Makeup – Now I won’t pick favorites or anything since I do love all these skins shown, but I have to say that this one is perfect for my lolita style outfits that I tend to wear pretty often. Plus with the free makeup that is set out as a gift I look just like a porcelain doll. I know for certain I’ll definitely be buying skins from this shop in the future because they’re just too adorable.

ROZENA @ SKin Fair – Tempt Eyes Caribbean Bay – These eyes are completely FREE and are part of a Skin Fair gift out right now at ROZENA’s stall. Inside the gift box is 3 eyeshadows and 2 pairs of eyes including this one you see in the 2 pictures. This really makes braving the lag at Skin Fair even more worth it.

Violent Seduction - Royal Star Outfit and Biscuit Bag – The shirt, hat, dress, and socks are all included in one set. I actually meant to wear this earlier in the winter season since it does seem more of a winter-type dress. The sleeves are detachable though and you don’t have to wear the shirt either, so it could easily fit in with the warmer months as well. I just thought it looked beautiful in the snow. The bag seemed to be a perfect match for this dress, and I’m also partial to the bag because I happen to own one in real life. Who doesn’t want a bag shaped like a cookie?

Zero Style - Venus Hair – I think this hairstyle was based off of Sailor Venus from Sailor Moon hence the hair being named Venus. This hair has to be the biggest hair I own because it’s not only long but it also cover almost all of my back. I still love it though and it’s because it’s so different and unique compared to other hair I’ve worn.

*L’Emporio di Bru* - T-Strap Shoes – I’ve had these shoes for ages now and I don’t think I’ve really worn them often enough. I’m so happy I got an outfit that I could wear them with again, and I think they go together pretty well. T-Strap shoes in general are always cute to me.

My Wallet is Divorcing Me

I know we’re still in the first half of the month but man this is just brutal. There are SO MANY EVENTS this month that it’s just crazy and I don’t know if I can afford everything I want to buy. I mean just to name a few there’s The Arcade, Collabor88, The Big Show, Chapter Four, Skin Fair (opens later this month), SLink West Grand Opening, and the list goes on. You might say “Well Punk, some of those events last all month so what’s the problem?” The problem is normally I go to those monthly events and that’s it. When you combine those with events that will take up crazy amounts of your lindens *cough* The Arcade *cough* it gets really hard to go to the normal monthly events and get the things you like. Luckily I found one event going on that didn’t require any money just a lot of patience and time. I’m talking about the Alice in RMK Gothic Bunny Hunt which lasts this entire month. There are a total of 24 shops but all the “hunting” takes place on the RMK Gothic sim. All you have to do is chase around little grey bunnies and wait for them to poop out a random ticket for one of the 24 shops. Now to cut down on time trying to get all the tickets there’s a trading area so you can trade for the tickets you need. After you gather the tickets you’re after, you then go to the corresponding shops and collect your prizes by clicking the special book set out. Ok wall of text is over, now I’ll show you guys some of the prizes I got thanks to the hunt and also a few other things I managed to pick up.Alice RMKAlice RMK Close-UpBaby Plant Baby Plant Close-UpUnipug Time Unipug Time Close-Up
+RokumeikaN+, +Theater Chain+, and ni.ju @ RMK Gothic - +RokumeikaN+ Alice Outfit, +Theater Chain+ Alice Lolita Shoes, ni.ju Alexander’s Pocket Watch – Believe it or not everything worn here, except for the skin/hair/eyes, is completely FREE from the Bunny Hunt. The outfit includes the clothes, purse, and even the bow on my head. The bow actually gave me a great reason to wear my new hair from LCKY. The shoes look like they were made to go with this outfit but are a separate gift. When I think of Alice I remember the white rabbit running late and looking at his pocket watch. So, I thought I’d wear this one by ni.ju with the Alice outfit to make it seem like I’ve just found his watch, and now I must chase after him down the rabbit hole.

:::Dimbula Rose::: - Doll Skin Emma – This is the latest skin from Dimbula Rose so I guess it’s only fitting that I’m late blogging it. I really need to pick up more skins from this shop because with my new small-eyed shape they look way better than before. The makeup done on the skin is just beautiful and because this is a doll skin there is a ball jointed version included in the pack.

Chus! - Elsig Lens – These eyes actually come in a set with makeup but I chose to just wear the eyes because I didn’t want to cover up the skin. I really like the color of them and how they just sort of fit with the skin and shape of my face.

[LCKY] @ The Big Show - Lynlee – Right now this hair is 50% OFF and only found at The Big Show. The event lasts all month of course and once it’s over the hair will be in the mainstore but at full price. So if you want this poofy little up-do (so poof, much curls) you better act fast so you can take advantage of this great deal! I keep adding accessories to this shop’s hair and I think it’s because the styles are just capable of pulling them off really well.

La petite fleur @ RMK Gothic - Off Shoulder Dress and Rose Crown – Just like the previous outfit, these 2 items are the shop’s prize for the Bunny hunt and are completely FREE. They’re both included together so don’t worry. You just have to try and get this shop’s ticket from one of the bunnies or trade a fellow hunter for the ticket. I really like the style of the dress and how it shows off my bare shoulders. The little rose crown is a nice touch as well and creates a sort of lolita look which I’m very fond of as you may or may not know.

[LCKY] - Alex hair – Now if you’ve never joined this shop’s group then you don’t know how generous the shop owner can be at times. Right now there’s a ton of gifts in the notices (3 fatpacks and a pack of randomly selected hair). This just so happens to be one of those fatpacks given away FREE, but the only way to get it is through the group [LCKY]Stars notices. The group however is not free to join and charges a fee of 250L, but honestly it’s definitely worth the price. This is sort of a beat the clock situation because once the notices expire you won’t be able to get this hair unless the owner decides to sell it in the shop one day.

*MishMish* @ The Arcade - A Baby Plant Sky (wear) – This is just one of many baby plants I now have because I decided to collect the entire set. These are just way too adorable so played the machine and traded the extras until I got every last one. If you too want a baby plant of your own then you only have until the end of this month because after this round is over they will be retired and never sold again. Since this is a gacha machine remember it may take awhile to win this specific version, but each play only costs 25L so it’s not too bad.

Ingenue - Paola Flats (SLink add-on) Sky – Like the name says these shoes are meant to only be worn with the SLink feet, and they won’t fit otherwise. The shoes are from a gacha machine that was once at The Arcade but is now at the shop’s main location. You’ll just have to try your luck if you would like this color, but personally I like all of the colors and these just happened to match with my outfit.

The Sugar Garden - Baby Skin – I’m pretty sure I’ve made a post wearing this skin before since I’ve had it for ages now. While I wait for Skin Fair to start (I need that Eun-Seo skin!), I’ve been wearing all my old tsg skins and of course one new one I recently picked up. Whenever I wear something cutesy, lolita, or something bright this is sort of my go to shop for skins.

Chus! - Mari Lens in Ghost – These eyes were a past group gift but I think you can buy them in the shop now. You can’t quite see all the detail of them in the picture but they’re very well textured dark eyes that give off a doll like appearance when worn.

~silentsparrow~ and .Birdy. @ The Arcade - ~silentsparrow~ Unicorn Rainbow Snugglewarmers RARE, .Birdy. Puggles Unicorn RARE – Motherf***ing unicorns man. Now in all honesty if you want these two items it’s going to be super difficult because they are both RARE in their gacha machines. Please feel free to try and win them though because just by looking at them you can see they’re simply amazing. The Snugglewarmers are actually a secret rare item not shown in the machine’s display image, but instead all you see is a ?. I also managed to get the machine’s second secret rare and here’s a hint of what it looks like, I’ll definitely be wearing it for Easter. That’s all I will tell you for now though. Ok, so this unicorn pug…I’m really at a loss for words. How can something be so perfect? It looks like a real pug in my arms! Plus it has on a pink/white/blue unicorn outfit, and I mean look at the little horn. This was my last outfit I put together when making this post and I haven’t taken my pug off since.

Violent Seduction @ SLink West Grand Opening - Heart Heels – SLink West is a brand new shopping district catering specifically to shoes, nails, cosmetics, and accessories dedicated to the much loved SLink Avatar Enhancement line of attachments. Violent Seduction happens to be one of the designers at SLink West and is participating in the big 50% OFF sale going on right now until the 14th. These shoes are meant to only be worn with the SLink feet if that wasn’t obvious already, and they have heels shaped into little hearts which is cute and very unique.

[LCKY] - Lemon v2 Hair – Remember how I said multiple fatpacks are currently in the notices of this shop’s group? Well here is another one of those hairs that you can get absolutely FREE just by paying the small fee to join the group. You may also be wondering why I’ve been wearing this shop’s hair so much lately. It’s because the creator has made a huge improvement in their hairstyles and I can’t help but wear them all.

Candy Mountain - Eyeballin’ T-shirt – Oh my god another gacha machine item, Punk? Why yes it is another item that you can only get by winning it from a machine. I must drive you guys crazy with this stuff, but hey I can’t help I’m drawn to nice things that just so happen to be in gacha machines. I actually really wanted the blue version of this shirt but the purple matches very well with the Snugglewarmers. The colorful eyeballs work nicely with the rainbow things I’m wearing too.

The Sugar Garden - Awake Rainbow Flare Eyes and Lip Tinte’ Pretty Rainbow – The lip makeup is an old group gift that is available in the shop’s VIP section, but you’ll have to be in the group to get it of course. The eyes I picked up a long time ago from a lucky board that was in the shop and I’m unsure if it’s there anymore. If it isn’t don’t worry because the shop offers many other kinds of eyes that I know look just as good if not better.

*katat0nik* - Tulle Skirt – Something else I’ve had for ages and only now getting around to wearing it is the skirt. I forgot how lovely it looked with the bright rainbow colors and even though it’s mesh it still looks very flowy. I really loved the fact I could tint the waistband to blend in with my purple shirt just by using the HUD included.

The Sugar Garden @ The Big Show - Kotoko Skin in Vampy, Kotoko Brow Tintable – There’s a brand new tone for all the shop’s skins and it’s making its debut at The Big Show for 50% off this month only. Vampy is a new more pale-ish tone and I chose to get it in Kotoko’s style because that was a style I didn’t have yet. What makes this deal even better is the fact any applier you will probably need is inside the pack already and you don’t have to buy it separately. I also made sure to grab the Kotoko tintable brow so I can have pink eyebrows that match my pink hair. The eyebrows actually work with any of the tsg skins that have the no brow option.

Notice Me Senpai!

Honestly I couldn’t think of what to title this post, can you tell? I think this sort of fits with the theme of outfits though. If you hate me now for using a meme as a title, well thank you for noticing me. Anyways, like I said in my previous post I’ve accumulated a stockpile of outfits in my absence and now I’m going to share some with you guys. I’m going to try to get this done before my time once again gets consumed by gacha machines (The Arcade is in 2 days!!!).Black WhiteBlack White Close-Up Neko Blues Neko Blues Close-Up Beary Lolita Beary Lolita Close-Up
LCKY - Peeks Glasses and Aiko Hair – The heart pigtails may seem a little simple, but they’re utterly adorable and I’ve never seen this style anywhere else which is a surprise. Don’t get bummed out now, but this hair is actually no longer available. It was a limited edition style for Valentine’s Day and since it’s obviously weeks past that date it’s not in the shop anymore. Something that will cheer you up a little is that it MIGHT make a return sometime in the future but at a higher price since the original fatpack was set at a discounted price. Your best option is to join the shop’s group in case this style does return or to be aware when a new limited edition is released. DO NOT message the creator to try and obtain the hair because it would be unfair to everyone else who missed out as well (I say this because quite a few have been doing this already). The Glasses you see are part of a wild animal style pack and I thought these zebra striped ones matched great with everything else. They’re a little nerdy and stylish at the same time which is perfect for this outfit.

Glam Affair - Lulu 09 Skin RARE – I got this skin from an old round of The Arcade but I think the gacha machine with the skins may be at the shop’s main location. This particular skin is RARE so it’s going to be a bit difficult to obtain. I just really like the pale skin and the nude colored makeup on it because the combination of the 2 creates a lovely skin.

Pumpkin - Combined Dress – What I like about this dress is that it looks like multiple pieces but really it’s all one mesh. The sweater part however can be changed simply by choosing a color in the HUD that is included. I chose to just keep it all black because a little black dress always looks nice.

lassitude & ennui - Prudence Boots – I’ve had these boots for a long time now and I don’t quite remember if I’ve actually made a post about them before. You may not be able to see all the details in the picture but it’s a lacey sort of boot with ribbons for the laces. Whenever I go to this shop I always have to make sure I don’t end up buying the same thing twice since I own so many pairs of shoes from there.

Tee*fy - Unisex Scarf – This scarf was something I picked up during a Christmas hunt going on at the sim where the shop is located. You may be able to buy it as well as different colors at the shop but I’m not sure. The scarf just went so well with the dress that I couldn’t help but wear them together in this outfit.

Chus! - Kimi Lens in Soulless – These eyes were actually a bit hard to get. The only way to get them is to join the group and wait for your name’s first letter to show up on the group’s luckyboard. Considering to do all of this won’t cost you anything but time I’d say it’s a good deal.

LCKY - Drella Hair and Nekomimi Ears – For a limited time this hair comes with the Nekomimi ears which are scripted so you can match it with any LCKY hair (so convenient!). I think eventually the ears will be sold separately so it’s best to buy them now while they’re free with a cute hair. This hair looks so fluffy and has little curls going outward which just seems like a perfect match for the ears.

*VinCue – Pandy Bag RARE – So I play a bunch of gacha machines, I admit I have a problem. If I didn’t play this machine though I wouldn’t have won such an adorable bag with a panda like face and a bow. Now if you’re wanting this exact same bag I’m sorry but it’s RARE and may be difficult to obtain. Feel free to try your luck though and don’t worry all the other bags are just as cute as this one.

(fashionably dead) – Bossy Boots Plain Mint and Socks – You may or may not remember that I’ve made a post about these boots before when they were at The Arcade. Well they’ve long been at the shop now, and you can play the machine to maybe win this color as well. The socks are a free add-on that you should be able to find near the machine itself.

Tee*fy - Elan Wool Vest Shirt and Edela Buttoned Skirt – The shirt and skirt were both at a past round of Collabor88 but can now be found at the mainstore location. They were made to perfectly fit together and are only sold separately to make it easier to mix and match colors. The outfit is just nicely done and I love the cute little collar on the shirt.

Chus! – Lune Lens in Icicle – As you can see I decided to wear my normal big-eyed shape, and it was all because I wanted to show off these eyes. I’m not sure if it was the skin or what but my small-eyed shape just wasn’t doing these eyes justice. What I love about them most is that they just sort of draw you into them, and that’s all you really need in a good set of eyes.

The Sugar Garden - Snowflake Skin – If you want this skin the only way to get it is to join the shop’s group that has a fee of 350L and go to the VIP area of the shop. I know 350L may seem a bit much at first but considering there’s a room full of gifts you gain access to it’s really not a bad trade off. This skin was from last November and what makes it unique is that the face has a slight rosey color to it unlike the other skins found there.

!Ohmai – Beary Lurvin – So many limited editions and group only things in this post, and this is one of them. This bear was an exclusive gift at the Mingle event which ended around Valentine’s day and I’m sorry to say but it isn’t for sale at their shop. The reason I posted a link to their shop anyways is because maybe one day they will sell it there, but in the meantime you might find something similar that you would want instead.

Violent Seduction - Roseraie Dress – Violent Seduction has always been one of the few good lolita shops that you can find in SL, and that’s why I wasn’t surprised when they came out with this lovely outfit. The modesty shirt and head bows are actually included with the dress, but I added a copy of the bow and modified them so they would look like they were tied to my pigtails. Light Blue and light pink are my 2 favorite colors which may be why I’ve been wearing this outfit for a couple of weeks now.

The Sugar Garden - Princess Socks, Lolita Platforms, and Sakura Skin – The Sakura skin like the Snowflake skin is another group gift that was released way back in July. It’s still available like all past group gifts in the VIP area of the shop, and if the cute little sakura flowers on this skin doesn’t convince you to join the group then I don’t know what will. The Lolita Platforms are actually made to work with the SLink Medium Feet and can’t be worn with your shape’s normal feet. However, the socks can be worn with your normal feet with the option to be worn with the SLink feet too.

LCKY - Glo Hair – I bought this hair about 2 months ago and I kept meaning to make a post about it with a Christmas outfit but I sort of forgot (ugh so sorry). Unlike other pigtails, these actually look like they have some volume to them whereas others just look straight and droopy. There’s even slightly curled strands that hang down around the face. The fact it comes in my favorite shade of blue is a huge plus too.

Chus! - Secret Whisper Lens in Princess – Now I didn’t see these eyes in the shop and I don’t really remember how I got them. I think they were a past group gift or something that is no longer available. If that is the case then I’m sorry all I can say is you really need to join the group since exclusives are given out in it all the time. I chose to wear these eyes not only for their color, but also because it almost seems like they glow a bit which is pretty cool.

Long Time New Face

So yeah I’ve been gone for ages, but since this isn’t a job and only a hobby don’t complain, just be happy to see me back. The good news is because I haven’t posted anything in so long I have a ton of new outfits to show off. You didn’t think me not being around on my blog meant I wasn’t grabbing new items in SL did you? Also, you may notice something different about my avatar’s face if you’ve paid any attention to my old posts. I’ve decided to tweak my large eyes a bit and make them smaller. I’m unsure if I will continue on with this change, but I guess that really comes down to how good does it look with certain skins. Anyways, there are a bunch of things going on this month even though it’s the shortest month of the year. I mean there’s Collabor88, Enchantment, Fantasy Gacha Carnival, FutureWave etc. So with only 18 days left for these events I guess I better get started.Little Red Kitty Hood Little Red Kitty Hood Close-Up Miko Miko Close-Up Space Invader Space Invader Close-Up
/Wasabi Pills/ – Lory Mesh Hair – I’ve worn this hair before in a different color a few posts back. I had won it from The Arcade and I’m unsure if the creator ever set out their machines in their store. If this hair is no longer available to get I’m sorry, but this is just the style I liked best when it came to putting together this outfit.

The Sugar Garden @ Fantasy Gacha Carnival - Good Kitty Collar Gothique RARE and Neko Cosplay Black – I’m listing my lolita headband under the set it’s actually a part of which is the Good Kitty Collar set. It’s of course from a gacha machine at the event and is RARE so you might have some trouble obtaining it. I would have worn the collar as well but I was trying to go for all red and black, and the gold bell on the collar may have stood out too much. The Neko Cosplay set includes the ears, paws, and an attachable tail that has a little hook for hooking onto your outfit. This set is from a separate gacha machine, and is luckily common so it’s not as difficult to win.

BeetleBones and BeetleBones @ Enchantment - Fowler Laced-Up Boots, Little Red Hoodie Sweater, and Little Red Mini Dress – Now the adorable boots you see are not from Enchantment, but were instead from a past round of Collabor88 and I think they may now be found at the shop’s main location. The sweater and dress however are at Enchantment and are exclusive to the event making them limited edition just like everything else found there. Sometimes it’s hard putting together a layered outfit, and so I’m glad these 2 items are made to fit together and I don’t have to worry about them overlapping.

Pink Fuel @ FutureWave - Sora Alabaster Special Edition Skin and Classic Pout Lipstick Red – I haven’t really been able to see everything offered at this event yet, but I did manage to get this skin set and I’m just overjoyed. So many different eye makeup and lipstick options, appliers for most mesh body modifications like SLink and Lola Tango, and there’s even a shape included! In all of these outfits I’m wearing a Pink Fuel skin and that’s just because I’ve always loved how they make my avatar look.

Candy Mountain - Eye Wrath Eyes Crimson – These eyes were part of a group gift set that I think is still out at the shop. I tend to keep wearing this shop’s eyes with every outfit. Not just this pair in particular, but as you can see I’ve worn a pair in every outfit in this post. I think I should maybe buy some different ones they have or maybe wear some from Chus!, but these are just so nice.

**Edelweiss** – Miko Dress and Miko Shoes – Pretty much everything from the neck down in this outfit is from Edelweiss. The dress actually includes the accessories you see me holding in my hands which makes you perform a dance which you can synchronize with others who also have them. The shoes are sold separately and so is the Chihaya worn over the dress I think but I’m unsure since I just bought the whole pack. I really need to show off my yukata I also got from this shop, but I wanted to post about this first.

!lamb. - White Chalk Hair – This hair was at the last round of Collabor88 but can now be found at the main shop for regular price. I thought this hair went really well with my Japanese style outfit which is nice because I didn’t want to wear something that made the outfit seem like a costume.

Pink Fuel - Sora Flushed Skin – This was a special skin being sold for the Knitting Circle’s Holiday Event and I’m afraid it is no longer available. Don’t worry though because next month the full Sora skin line will be released and you may be able to get it then.

Candy Mountain - Eye Wrath Eyes Brown – Just a different color of the previous eyes I mentioned but somehow they look so much different. Again these are part of a group gift set so join the group and pick them up if you can.

Schadenfreude, ~silentsparrow~, and *katat0nik* @ Collabor88 - Schadenfreude Space Star Eyes, Orbit Skirt/Jacket/Shortpants, Supernova Astro Antigrav Boots, silentsparrow Raygun, katat0nik Starry Babydoll and Space Kitty Helmet – So aside from all these items being at Collabor88 right now, the reason I listed them all together was because they were all made in a sort of collaboration between the 3 creators. As you can tell by the style and colors they all match well and create a nice looking outfit. This has to be one of my favorite rounds of Collabor88 simply because it’s finally enabled me to be a cute space girl while wearing stuff from my favorite shops.

/Wasabi Pills/ - Claire Mesh Hair – I don’t really understand why I’ve seen so many people wear the katat0nik space kitty helmet without any hair. I was able to find hair to fit under it rather easily thanks to this shop. I did have to modify the hair a little, but not as much as you think, and I also tinted it green to match everything else. The hair is mesh but it’s unrigged mesh which allowed me to resize it enough to fit under the helmet.

Pink Fuel @ FutureWave - Sora Alabaster Special Edition Skin and Classic Pout Lipstick Teal Gradient – I decided to show more options for this skin by wearing it again in this spacey outfit. It actually came with a no eyebrow option that worked nicely with my space star eye makeup, and the teal lipstick was just the right color to go with the other teal/green parts of the outfit.

Candy Mountain - Orb Eyes – More eyes from this shop’s many group gifts. I really liked these eyes because they just seemed spacey and alien almost which was perfect. I really need to buy some eyes to balance out all these free ones. We’ll see what happens in my next post.
