Summer is coming - not that you'd know it too much in my RL neck of the woods - but SL is pulling out all the stops to make everyone feel summery... The events that are springing up all over the grid have the summer time feeling that I am definitely lacking at home.
The Summerfest '13 started on the 15th and it's an event that will have you stripping to your undies and running for the waves at full speed. The location is jam packed with a collection of beach huts - with designers filling the little space and spilling out onto the beach - giving this place a real sense of a beach bazaar!
I have a couple of things from the event to show you, first up let's go with the freaking adorable otter that is sitting there on the grass minding his own business... I saw these on Sophia Harlow's blog and simply HAD to have one. !Oh Mai is selling them with a variety of different colours - and as avatars too - so it took me a while to pick the colour I wanted, and then to my excitement they come with a collection of different display versions and carry versions... I was showing mine off to everyone who would look - Bikers don't really seem to get my craziness for adorable stuff *pouts*! THEN, also from Summerfest '13 is this adorable pose prop friend called Dunneh - straight out of the mind of Aime Takaaki of MishMish - he has 4 different poses and comes with the Beware of the Waves Sign in the background. Who wouldn't want a lifeguard like this, just so long as he doesn't need to give mouth to mouth!
Hmmm let's see what else do I want to rave about in this photo... OH the Bikini Top!!! This is part of a set from a Gacha by the store PixyStix. PixyStix is a store that is fairly new to me, but it is stuffed full of awesome goodies including skins and clothing. Anyway though, the bikini is one of 6 that can be won from the Gacha Event at the Colosseum - at 25L per try and each design coming with their own set of Tango appliers - who wouldn't want unicorn bikinis in their life hehe... To complete the outfit I pulled on one of my go to skirts from Sugar and some crocs from Gos and these amazing tentacle socks from Silent Sparrow that were part of the Fifty Linden Friday line-up... I feel all Summery!!!
