New Slouch Boot from Gos Custom Footwear – Your new winter boots

New from Gos Custom Footwear is the gorgeous Slouch Boot. Available in 10 colours, and as always customizeable. Change the metals to silver or gold, change the wood on the clog sole, change the straps and the boot itself. With the fatpack version you get all ten colours for near limitless options. Boots come 2.0 ready with tatoo layer to hide the foot, but for those of us still clinging to 1.23 viewer the invisiprim can be turned on in the extras menu. These boots are one piece so they only take one attachment point and move smoothly with your AO.

They are the quality you expect from Gos, from the beautiful sculpts to the textures, to the menu options. Make a copy and delete scripts from the menu for a low-lag version. Make sure you don’t delete scripts from the original! But this is a great option especially if you are having trouble teleporting. I’m showing just 5 of the 10 colours here but I’ve been working my way through all of them!

I love the fitting scripts – not just a simple resize,  choose which way your boots need to be resized.  In my case I always need to make them just a bit wider, it’s great to be able to do this without enlarging the whole boot.

Try on a free demo at the Gos mainstore, you will be impressed!

Look of the day: winter warmth, recycled.

Our store is participating in 2 Christmas events that both start this weekend, The Snowflake
Experience and the For the Love of Ice Festival. We’ve all been running in circles trying to
get all of our projects done, and while I am far from done I realize it’s been a while since I posted.
So I decided to do a quick look of the day.

The Highlands was hit by a blizzard this week, and that, coupled with the wintery / holiday events
going on has me in the mood to bundle up. I was actually looking for an outfit for a vendor
picture and I dug out some things I picked up last year that I still love.

My hair with toque from fri.day was the first thing I thought of, then I grabbed this Winterstock
sweater from Artilleri, a pair of my favourite jeans from Armidi and these great ankle boots
from Coco.  They were a group gift last Christmas, and the black is still available on their gift wall.

My skin is Joy from Très Blah at the 111 event. This one is sold out but there are still some of the
other 2 skins available.

Ok, back to work!  Hope to see you at the Snowflake Experience or the Ice Festival this weekend!

Shiny Happy Shoes! – New Zimmy flats

Like so many other SL fashion junkies, I was thrilled to hear a few weeks ago that Fallingwater Cellardoor of Shiny Things was back after a long hiatus from Second Life.  Her first shoe release is out now and I am in love! The Zimmy flats are gorgeous, beautifully made and textured, with a bow that clicks on on off.  Fallingwater has put out a gift of the Faded Denim colour for members of the Subscriber or the in world group, too!

Check out all the colours and the styling details after the break! Continue reading “Shiny Happy Shoes! – New Zimmy flats”

Accessory Fair 2010 – Donna Flora

Donna Flora is a store that I was not familiar with until recently. Owner and designer Squinternet Larnia makes some of the most beautiful antique / vintage style jewellery you will see in Second Life, as well as bags, shoes, hats, glasses. Her clothing also features vintage styles.

Image 2: Left- Dolores Set (purple), Right- Diva Glasses (beige), Miss_G (white), Lucy Bag (black)

The sculpts and textures are beautiful and rich and while I have chosen a vintage feel in styling most of the pieces would work equally well in a more contemporary classic look. Donna Flora’s booth at the Accessory Fair is filled with a selection of her work, to see more visit the main store.

Your Summer Dream – Surf Couture

One of the best things about Second Life is that no matter what the weather is like or where you live, you can always find a beach and soak up some virtual sun. Emma Gilmour is a designer who has made it her mission to provide cute clothes for SL sun worshippers. This week she has a new release out, a new bikini in 8 colour combinations, some really great denim shorts in 8 washes, and a unisex board shoe in a staggering 16 colours!

For my post today I am featuring the Moana Bikini in Ocean Flower, the Shack Shorts in Dark Grey, and the Boardwalkers Unisex shoes in Seagull. Check out my holiday snaps!
The bikini is super cute, not overly skimpy as some SL bikinis are, the shorts are a nice fit with a bit of adjustment on the leg prims to fit, easily done in a couple of seconds. I really really love the Boardwalkers though, the colour selection is fantastic, and as soon as I can narrow it down I’m going back for more! Head over to Surf Couture to get yours!

Bikini: Surf Couture – Moana Bikini (Ocean Flower)
