Use Your Illusion

Posted on Updated on

Happy Thursday, my lords and ladies! I can’t believe we’re at the end of July already; so many events I’ve not yet visited, and so little time left in the month! While I make like a whirling dervish and try to visit as many soon-to-be-closing events as possible, I want to invite everyone to a brand new shopping experience with plenty of time left in the current round (whew!) It’s called Illusion Point, and it’s a fantasy-themed event where some of the very best designers on the grid are showcasing their creations at fabulously discounted prices. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to sneak peek some of the items on offer, and just as excited to finally be creating my first fantasy-inspired look. I hope I did these wonderful designers justice, or off with my head! :)

My luminous gown, jewelry and facepaint are all Illusion Point exclusives, by Les Encantades, Modern Couture and ARISE, respectively. I just love the mix of softness and strength in the Belona Gown, which comes with optional arm guards and shoulder armor, so you can be a jewel-toned damsel one moment, and a glam goddess warrior the next! It comes in 8 colors and is available in standard sizes. The exquisite Amore Jewelry Set is so beautifully detailed, with glistening gold filigrees, a jewel here and there, and bevy of delicate roses. It may be found in 4 colors, each sold separately. And I’m enamored with the Susa Facepaint, which is both delicate and defining, and comes in 8 shades (tattoo layers only) with both soft and normal opacity styles.

I really like the strong, well-defined brows on my gorgeous Aline skin by DS’ELLES, which is exclusive to the FAD Fashion Event through August 25th. My nails, which I was delighted are perfectly matched to my gown, are by my go-to nail guru, Alaska Metro. And I have to say once more how rapt I am with the group gifts from Suicidal Unborn, particularly the three sets of eyes members can collect from the VIP room. The Bastet Eyes have a wonderfully animalistic, otherworldly quality to them that I thought suited my fantasy style perfectly.

Hope you’ve had a marvelous week, and be sure to sneak a visit to all the July events that are wrapping up today and tomorrow! If you need guidance, my SL Fashion Events Tracker is always there to help make your shopping a bit easier. Enjoy! ♥

      Haha! Thank you for sparing me, sweet Hana! I hope the decision was a good one – with great power comes great responsibility and I feel like I’m more suited to being Queen of Mischievious Mayhem! :D ♥

    I love the makeup! It’s very bold. I’m always looking for bold looks to dance in…I guess I have some shopping to do.

      I appreciate that tremendously, Winnie! I always err on the side of natural, subtle makeup but Nova Bodyshop has some really lovely, bold styles that especially seem to suit regal looks and fantasy styles. Loads of appliers too, which is always nice for my mesh headed gals! :) ♥
