The Fashion Loft presents…Spring Fantasy 2017 Styling contest

For those who have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am not the biggest fantasy RP fan out there. But something about the spring brings out the creativity that gets me into the fantasy spirit. Between Fantasy Faire coming soon (on April 20), the Epiphany gacha event (I am still trying to get in there – lots of good things this round) , and monthly events such as We Love RP, there is a lot of inspiration.

This is why we at The Fashion Loft thought it would be a great idea to have a fantasy themed contest to feature great items and to capture some of the magic that comes with fantasy.

Are you making yourself feel tired without knowing it?

On Thursday (March 23) I attended a workshop on self -esteem at Model’s Workshop. A good portion of the workshop centered around us analyzing several holograms created by Janosh.
“Janosh’s work is based on Sacred Geometry, which is a code language that your subconscious understands. It has helped thousands of people to change their behavior and beliefs and find their purpose in life. ”

We were asked to pick which one(s) we found most interesting or resonated with us. After we picked a drawing, we were then told what it meant. The hologram that I picked spoke to “Release“. The affirmation that went with it was “I let go of everything that restricts my growth.” I felt the hologram resonated with me because it reminded me of something from biology, and was intriguing. If you look on the website, they have a number of holograms, so I am sure one of them will “speak” to you as well.

Shoetopia is back, and it’s raining shoes! Shoetopia will open at 12 pm March 25th , and will end on April 15th. With over 50 designers participating, this will be an event that you don’t want to miss!

If you are s group member of Shoetopia’s sponsors (Blueberry, Breathe, CandyDoll, Empire, N-Core, and Reign), then you probably have already stopped by Shoetopia. Members of these groups were allowed to access Shoetopia 24 hours before the event opened.

There have been several videos floating around that shows what shoppers will find on Saturday. I watched videos from Alicia Chenaux, Kitty Otoole, and Strawberry Singh.  They all give you a pretty good idea of what the build looks like, and how the sections are set up for each store brand.

New Profile Pic!

Hey guys! I am sure that some of you have noticed that I switched over to wearing a mesh head around the end of last year. After Bento came out, I felt awkward not wearing a mesh head when everyone around me were happy with the new Bento heads and seemed to adapt fairly easily to it. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan, I started wearing my Kori head from Catwa just so I could start getting used to things. You can see those photos towards the end of the year…one day I just went, “Eff it!” and started wearing my head.

After a good friend gifted me the Catya bento head from Catwa in January, I used the shape that I was working on for the past month to help finalize my shape. I do not like the fact that some face pixels are missing in the demo. It’s hard to get an accurate feel of the head unless you make the plunge and buy the head. Some people may sneeze at ~$20 USD, but I am not one of them. I do plan on getting a Lelutka head later this year, because I liked that one as well.
