How much am I loving the Autumn fashion that’s hitting the grid? I swear, there’s something magical about seasonal change in SL. Maybe it’s because it’s the opposite season to whatever I’m in (being Australian), or maybe it’s because in a way, we all celebrate cultural rituals (like Halloween) even though our repsective countries don’t. It’s a uniting thing, I suppose, and that makes it great.
So this week I opened my first SL store! Talking about nerve racking! I want to thank everyone who came out and partied with us at the opening, and invite you all to come by and say hi and check out the items I’m creating. Without all of your support I would never have had the courage to try my hand at designing, so thank you to you all <3 To share my thanks, I have a special group gift coming out very soon, so make sure you join the group while you’re in the store (plus it gives you 5% credit on purchases anyway, so win-win!).
My store is Maddict (named lovingly after all of you Maddicts!) and here are the details:

Now, back to Autumn and spooky fashion!! So this week The Epiphany opened, and it truly is one of my favourite events on the grid. There’s something about the creativity that the designers put in to their creations at this event that makes it just so damn fun – not to mention I like that even though it’s a gatcha event, I can redeem my ‘spares’ in for points to buy exclusives. All that said, as you’ll see below in the fitmesh finds, there is some amazing fitmesh at the event – Blueberry and Addams particularly are incredible, as they always are! RealEvil is really starting to nudge their way into the fashion market too, which I think is great. I love their jewellery, and I’m loving their clothing style, the textures are incredible.
On to another old favourite of mine, The Season’s Story, which is open now, featured a dress called Zoe that I’m just in love with, plus an outfit (particularly the long cardi) from Aphorism that I never want to take off. It’s always so difficult to rig long items, especially in a jacket style, but they did really well, so if you haven’t checked it out, you’ll see the details how to below in fitmesh finds.
And now… onto fitmesh finds (below the credits)!
