Evangeline Miles of Evie's Closet has released Elizabeth. A beautiful gown of exquisite detail and craftsmanship... I know, TOTAL Captain Obvious moment given we're talking about Evie's Closet...when has she released something that is not perfection itself?
The gown is awesome, I love the swishing skirt movement... that's one of the things that gets me every time with Evie's creations... the natural flow and movement of her skirts. I always find myself looking for a dance ball so I can watch the skirt go SWISH! heehee LOL so decided to include a piccy of my avi dancing at Moonsong.
Evie teamed up with Elizabeth Tinsley (notice the name did you? good, cause the dress *is* named for Elizabeth, so you are very clever) who made some spectacularly detailed and delicate jewellery to go with the gowns. The clever thing about this collaboration is that Elizabeth has given you two options for the collar and necklace, you can wear the necklace without the collar... easy. OR you can wear the collar with the necklace already attached, so you don't have to worry about conflicting attachment points! I love that sort of forethought! :D
Oh best news EVER! The Elizabeth gowns are available for a LIMITED time only at a ridiculously low special release price, so get there NOW![TAXI]
That's all from me, I'm going to go back to my dancing!
Until next time,
Gown: *EC* Elizabeth - Green
Jewellery: ET~The Faerie Queene in Forest

Newdoll Nikolaidis passed me the most precious box this evening... Three creators had made these tattoos, a glorious & touching way to bring awareness to the tragedy of depression, self harm, addiction...
for full story of what "To Write Love On Her Arms" is... see this
The three creators who made these tattoos being distributed around the grid to people who wish to show their support of this powerful and much needed message are:
I work with young people, I am a teacher, I have bathed the blood, I have dressed the wounds, I have been the ear for students who felt so out of control of the pain in their lives, so overwhelmed by everything they were feeling, that they have told me they just wanted *something* to focus on, something that they could be in control of, even if it caused them harm. I have wept for these young people, & I have railed at a world that should protect young people from life experiences that drive them to this... It is for these reasons, that I support such a worthy cause.
If I could arm people going through any or all of these things, it would be with the ability to get their arms around who they are, and be able to truly love who they are ... from the heart.
I've passed the pose I made for this pic, & another one for larger framed avi's to be added to the pack being circulated.

Presenting Studio Sidhe's Winterstock exclusive pose prop for Christmas!!! You'll find it HERE. We're sharing a space with Evie's Closet, so come down & check it out :D
I've rezzed a slightly lighter version of the pose prop at the stall, but you get the full 19 prim version when you buy it. It's Mod/Copy so you can of course mess around with it to get the look & prim count you want. Oh! & the best news... it's only $100L!!!
I do encourage you to get it within the next week, as I am planning on making other things for our Winterstock space, but will be swapping out the stuff that is already there... so don't miss out!
Also, don't forget that the 50% off store card sale is going on for ONE MORE DAY at Studio Sidhe main store. You know I'm not someone to call a sale every second day, so who knows when the next one will be! LOL

Above is the new model pose set that I have released, it's called "Feisty", a name suggested by Isle Lunasea when I did a shout out in plurk for a name for this set... Thanks Isle :)
Poses are available in world in the set or individually at Studio Sidhe main store.
In other news...
We're having a SALE! yup I know, a sale is a rare, rare thing at Studio Sidhe, I think I've had maybe 3 in the 3 years we've been on the grid? if that.
It's a store card sale, mainly cause I only just got home from work, saw Acha's post and went YES! and simply do not have the time or energy atm to reprice all my vendors... I have a few LOL
So how does it work?
Buy a Store card BEFORE you start shopping:
Get a $1000L store card for $500L
Get a $500L store card for $250L
Get a $300L store card for $150L
Get a $100L store card for $50L
BUT SAVE MORE *IF* YOU'RE IN THE STUDIO SIDHE IN WORLD GROUP!!! Just wear your tag when you buy a store card and get:
$1000L store card for $450L
$500L store card for $220L
$300L store card for $130L
$100L store card for $40L
So that's it from me, doing my bit to promote good sense... Help support content creators through shopping only at their stores, by keeping an eye out for the creators you love, if you see dodgy stuff going on with their stuff... tell them. Education & awareness is the way, boycotting creators stores for two days only hurts those creators.
Take care, and Enjoy the sale... ends on the 7th!!! :D

Okay, so my grandmother always told me; "Less is More", and generally, I agree... except for today!!! :D
Yup, this outfit I've put together is totally over the top, totally full on and totally lush :)
So what inspired me to break my granny's simple rule you might ask? This hair! OMG LOVE IT! Kalli from Discord Designs sent it to me the other day and when I put it on I was just WOW! awesome! You may know Kalli's work with braids, and she does do brilliant ones... I've worked on some jewellery to go with those braids... so I can tell you as one that has stared for hours on end intensely zoomed in on them, they really are THAT good, not many things can stand up to that sort of scrutiny. But I think that this hair shows you that she's not just about braids. The way she has variegated the colours is so well done, and the style itself is lovely.
The outfit is from Schadenfreude, Allegory Malaprop does great work. It's one of those shops that you can just click & buy everything there without going "hmm, hope the seems match", her stuff is always quality. The boots are from Bettie's another store that I love.
The rest of the outfit was put together through a total adventure of TP'ing to stores that I had never been before... I had fun!
I went to Mandala for the first time ever, I HIGHLY recommend that place! I make jewelly (as I'm sure you know) so I tend to be a bit of a jewellery snob, this place left me going WOW! the attention to detail and the originality of the pieces there is just amazing! The choker & necklace where a real find, some great stuff to be found at PERTURB/ation The waist scarf or stole as it is advertised in store is from =IZUMIYA=
And lastly, the skin, it's from Trap, and just rocks, well you can see that for yourself... another store that I will be going back and back and back to!
Until next time when I fill you in on my fun gambols about SL.

In keeping with my new tradition of blogging the things on the grid that I love, so I can share it with the masses... here is my weekly post :)
Check out these poses! Cool ha? Totally kick arse? hell yes! These are the work of the posing genius Jonny Dusk of 5ifth Order.
As a fellow content creator I think it's important to recognise the people on the grid who's work just shines. For me as a pose maker, I can say with absolute sincerity that Jonny's work is just that. His work is brilliant. His ability to capture and convey emotion, action, and story in just one still moment is surpassed by none.
If you don't know the work of Jonny Dusk, and have never been to 5ifth Order, I urge you to do so. Jonny is the poser that I want to be when I grow up! :D
The rest of the outfit I put together from Exile, Illusions, SLink and La Sylphide. For full outfit & pose credits scroll down)
In other news! Remember that gorgious outfit that Evie Miles of Evie's Closet released earlier this month... name Faery (after me, just in case you missed that ;D)? Well, Amyla Wakowski of the Hidey Spot has made some lovely skins to go with that (ALSO name after moi!)
So as Name Stuff after Faery Month, *coughs* I mean OCTOBER, draws to a close (well for northern hemisphere folks in any case) I leave you with the pic below of me; Faery, wearing Faery and Faery LOL
Take care, and until next time...
