Simply Falling...

Simply Falling…

October 28, 2011 |  by  |  anya ohmai, lookbook

Sometimes I have on a look in SL that I utterly love but I feel rather miffy about putting it on a blog because I feel perhaps it’s not complicated enough or not “mixed” enough. Then I have to give myself a mental slap and just go ahead and post it. These 3 looks today was somewhat a little bit of that. I wanted to showcase brand new items from Mon Tissu and Vive9 but I felt like no matter how I styled it, it looked better just simple and clean.

So I hope you guys would like this and not mind the simpleness!

Alphabet Challenge : G

Alphabet Challenge : G

October 26, 2011 |  by  |  Alphabet Challenge, anya ohmai, lookbook

I wanted to incorporated a little bit of HP love into my attempt on the Alphabet Challenge so I’ll be taking G, H, R and S for the four houses to do so. Gryffindor will start off with the letter G! I won’t be doing full on HP uniforms and such for these looks but more so a series of randomness and a few wizarding magic thrown in there. Hope this resonates with HP fans out there!

I never knew how challenging this challenge would be, it’s the letter G now and I’m slightly slow in terms of doing this on a weekly basis. Luckily the rules are fairly flexible so I can do as much or as little till I finish to the finishing letter Z. I would love to use the opportunity to show off some furniture items I have using this challenge too, so I’ll try to do that more often from now onwards.

52 Weeks of Color Week Eight: Green

52 Weeks of Color Week Eight: Green

I’ve been starting my 52 Weeks of Color Challenge late in the week recently cause it’s been crazy busy. But I decided to do it earlier on for week eight seeing I’m rather inspired today! I love when the colors are a little broader in terms of hues we can use, Green for example is extremely general. Thus, I tried to mix different hues of green to make it more pleasing for the eye.

Hope you guys like this cozy fall gear. Oh! My Jacket comes from NoaR who recently reopened their store in the SLOW sim. Not all their old items are back up, but there are some new gear and adorable matching socks as group gift. So hop on over and check that out. Take care guys <3

52 Weeks of Color Week Seven: Cerise

52 Weeks of Color Week Seven: Cerise

I’m in such awe at you guys who have been doing Luna Jubilee’s Color Challenge from the start and are reaching the finishing end next week. Phew! That’s a long long journey and here I am still at Week 7. Applauding you guys who are now just doing a final sprint to the end.

I must admit Cerise was an unexpected surprise of a color to me, I truly had to scour my inventory for any color close to it cause I don’t own many of them. I ended up with a look that’s slightly more reddish Cerise than the Crayola version of it which is slightly Magenta. I do like it though, unexpected is always a good thing and since it’s called a challenge, gotta embrace the new!

I would just like to really first off say thank you to Miah McAuley and Rico Plisskin for being the sweetest designers ever by naming some of their creations with my SL name <3

Miah creator of Natural Beauty recently sent me Anya saying that she wanted to create a sweet soft skin and I really loved how it turned out, i’m wearing it in both looks today and just thank you so much! I’ve never worn Natural Beauty skins before but this really peaked my interest and I’ll be demoing more of her skins in the future there’s a soft angelic quality to this skin that I really love. I know that’s pretty ironic since my looks aren’t super angelic whatsoever — gun and all…

Rico on the other hand contacted me about eye suggestions hoping to create some brand new eyes for his store Aphotic Gloom. He created a lovely rendition of an idea I had and will be selling these in Chic Fashionably Late and in his store as well. The eyes turned out exactly what I envisioned, having a muted light grey and then flecks of multiple tons in the middle which gives it so much dimension. I’ve turned this into my default eyes for my RP Character over at H:YS. I initially found out about Aphotic Gloom from Gogo’s blog and I’ve been using his eyes regularly in my blog posts now. So if you guys are looking for high quality gorgeous eyes, please take a look at his wares! (I’m wearing his eyes from this set in both looks, but the Anya one is used in the 2nd look)

Some of the items in both looks come from items within the Seasons Hunt, they’re truly really awesome, so remember to check it out before the hunt ends!
