Here comes the Rooster

One of my favorite stores, Likka*House, is celebrating their 3rd anniversary! I remember when Likka was just starting out with her line of cheapy Alice dresses, that we all coveted. What I love even more is the daring and fun designs she's released as she's grown as a creator. The gift that she has out for her 3rd anniversary is definitely no exception. Check that tail out. I love it!

I don't know how long it will be out, But Miss Likka is generally pretty generous with her gifts so it should be out for some time. Grab it now though, just in case. And if you don't see much of me this week, it's cause my birthday is on Friday, so yeah. :P

'Ello Poppets! :D

"Where have the Tricketts been? o:" You may ask. Well, I got sucked into an MMO for a while and didn't really log in properly for a few weeks or months, I don't really remember. x: Then I had some fun messing about with friends and then I had a completely different experience messing about with viewers, which all hate me. x: I'm currently contemplating downloading Viewer 2 because tattoo and alpha layers are great and Emergence isn't a very reliable rezzer...
Alternately you may ask "What is a Trickett?" which is a question without correct answer, really...

Today's post is brought to you by skins from Ello Poppet by Tala Swan and eyes from Esuga by Eilfie Sugarplum, both of which are participating in the Little Big Shop Event. :D
I was pretty happy with my Paint-happy pictures but I have to say Wren's last post is looking pretty awesome. (x

This skin and the eyes are a cheapy available at the Little Big Event Shop Event. The skin is priced at 10L and when you buy it you will also recieve a NC about a photo contest you can enter. :3 The eyes were designed by Esuga to match the full-price season-inspired skins available. There's four colours and they are 5L each untill the end of the event when they will be repriced in her store, which also sells skins you can find at the booth.
Once you're done in the Ello Poppet/Esuga booth you can hop outside and you'll find many other stalls. :3

I also thought I'd show you some of the freebies available at Ello Poppet's main store. These adorable card-deck skins are from the Mad Hatter's Hunt. There's also still a Hallowe'en Hunt prize out too and another 10L skin.
And as a final note, according to Tala's profile, the Ello Poppet store will only be on the grid until the end of November and after that all items will be moved to XStreet. Marketplace. That place, where they sell stuff and you don't have to leave your SLHouse/studio-platform/rabbit breeding empire. Her usual skins are very healthy-tanned with colourful make-ups so if you weren't so sure on the pale skins and the Fae skins, you can still give it a look in. :3

Eyes // Esuga at the Little Big Event // 5L, other colours available
Pink Fae Skin // Ello Poppet at the Little Big Event // 10L
Deck of Cards Skins // Ello Poppet // 0L, Mad Hatter Hunt prize

Edit: I screwed up the HTML somehow. Awesome. :D Hopefully I fixed it though. >.>

Edgy + Sweet

I had so much stuff left over from Jewelry fair that I didn't get to and I felt terrible about, including these gorgeous pieces from Bliensen + Maitai. I remember the first necklace I got from the shop, like over two years ago, as a dollarbie. I wore it SO MUCH, and have since always kept an eye on the jewelry there. Probably my favorite of the releases for jewelry fair was the Rustique set, a generous and affordable collection of edgy and fun jewelry. The set comes with bracelets and a collar, and in leather and metal. I love the rough hewn edges and the leather lacing.

If you're looking for something a little more romantic, you definitely need this necklace. La Belle et La Bete is one of the most beautifully sculpted pieces I've seen recently, and besides the beautiful craftsmanship, and textures, this necklace is scripted for color change. There are a pile of different colors available, not just for the flower, but for the claws as well.

There was also a pretty large release of painted shell jewelry that is gorgeous, two of my favorite shown below. I love that it's taken from such a unique perspective, with the tryptic necklace, and the lovely metal work. Bliensen + Maitai have a lot of really lovely new releases out that you should check out if you didn't have time to run jewelry fair.

Fancy Chic

Hey! I kinda ran away for a little bit, I'd been sick, and had a lot going on for a few days there so I just needed a little time to myself, but I'm back, and I have an insane backlog of pretties to show you. We'll start today with the last two releases from ~*The Black Canary*~. When Morrigan dropped his last set on me, I about died from how perfect it was. I have no problem saying it is among the top he's designed. This is Sovereign Rose, and it COMES with that gorgeous crown and scepter. Eyepatch does not, though, that's just something else I had kicking around in my inventory.

Morrigan has been on a tear recently with making more period regal pieces lately. 'Providence' is another recent release that is lovely and sets a standard among ~*The Black Canary*~ pieces. It comes with two sleeve options and looks beautiful in a severe, restricted way, which is really the distinct opposite of Sovereign Rose. I look like I could be a villain in a Disney movie. Kind of awesome.

Taking a more full look at Sovereign Rose lets you see just how detailed and beautiful it is. I put it in and left it on... for a couple of days at least. Along with that new Elika hair, that literally everyone on the grid now has. But it worked, and these are sets definitely worth your consideration. The releases from ~*The Black Canary*~ are getting better and better, and I can't wait to see what's next.
