“Springy”

[TinRoof]-Springy-Ad

I purchased this mesh model with other plans in mind for it, but sometimes you open a box of textures and discover that it’s a match made in heaven.  I love these brightly colored stripes and the linen-like texture of the fabric.  A picnic table would have been a better background, but the horse was so pretty, I couldn’t resist capturing him in the background.

“Patches”

patches-photo-lumipro-test
TinRoof “Patches” fitmesh jeans for Pretty Things Showroom Event – September 2016

These jeans were made exclusively for The Showroom Event at Pretty Things.

As you know I buy mesh templates to work with, but never, never, ever use the textures right out of the box and sell it to you.  Each item at TinRoof has details that make them unique to others on the grid.  On this pair, I have made the denim more realistic looking, created higher back pockets and added fun patches that can be changed via HUD.

When I first tried them on, I though the calves were oddly skinny, but then realized that they fit great into boots that way!  The leather belt and metal ankle zippers make this pair of jeans a little edgy and very versatile for this year’s fall fashions.  In the photo I am wearing the “Lana” tank from Blacklace.  It’s on sale this week in the TGIF area of the courtyard.

You can try a demo before you buy, if you’re unsure of the fit.  Sizes in the box include Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP and standard sizes for classic avatars.

 

 

 

 

 

“Lacie” fit-mesh shorts

Lacie-Ad-for-TGIF

Embellished denim for that laaaaast stretch of summer.  Lace sewn onto the pockets makes these shorts a bit frilly with vintage appeal.

-because sometimes we like to wear our lace on the outside-

Although you may see similar shorts on the grid, the textures on these shorts have been customized.  I have taken great pains, as always, to change the denim fabric, buttons, stitching and other details to make this a unique product that you can wear proudly.

SIXTEEN sizes are included in the box.  Yes!  Sixteen!!!  If you can’t get one of those to fit, I can’t help you.  You’ve got the usual five standard sizes, plus fit-mesh compatible with Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, Eve, Slink and Tonic.  Wahoo!

 

“Daisies” fit-mesh top

…the front panels reminded me of flower petals…

TinRoof Daisies Ad Small“Daisies” was inspired purely by the mesh model used to make this top.  The shape of the front panels reminded me of flower petals and it just screamed “TinRoof” to me… so I bought it.  The fabric is a breezy linen in six colors, though the black and white are actually my favorites.  They go with anything!

In addition to the fabric texture, the buttons and the trim have also been customized.

*** A special color of this top can also be found hidden in the TinRoof main store for the Women’s Stuff Hunt until Aug 31st.  ***

Dragonflies

Dragonflies and summer just go hand in hand, if you ask me…

Dragonflies-Top-Ad-small

Dragonflies and summer just go hand in hand, if you ask me… along with cicadas and June bugs, but they aren’t as pretty to put on a top to wear.

These beautiful insects are a symbol of spiritual awakening in some parts of the world, and they are feared in others.  I personally consider them to be a sign that I have walked outside far enough into nature, and slowed down far enough, to notice them.  This is a good thing.

This strapless top donned with dragonflies is finished off with lace-covered trim and a bright bow.  Pair it with your favorite cut-off shorts and you’ve got the perfect lazy summer outfit.

The box includes 5 standard sizes, which are classic mesh.  It also includes several “fitmesh” sizes that are compatible with currently popular mesh bodies including:

  • Belleza – Venus, Isis and Freya
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique and Hourglass
  • Tonic – Curvy and Fine
  • and TMP.

 

 

Toasty

Snapshot_007New as of last night “Toasty” mesh sweater with color-change HUD.  Eight cheerful but winter-y colors make it very versatile.

Have you ever gotten tired in RL so you took a seat in SL?  Well the other day I got cold in RL… so I made a sweater in SL!  Wearing it invokes all the warm, snuggly, cozy feelings that you would expect when wearing a soft, oversized pullover… almost like a blanket, but one you can wear.

Day of the Dead – Calaveras Make-up

Face painting for Halloween, turned into Calaveras make-up.

I love Halloween and the holiday that follows it, Dia de los Muertos or “Day of the Dead”.  This make up started out as face painting for a Halloween party but before long, it had taken on a life of its own (or death of its own?) and become Calavera make-up!

Halloween Scarecrow Costume

Snapshot_014
A not-so-scary scarecrow for Halloween this year.

A close friend of mine suggested this costume and it was really a great fit for Tin.  She could stand out in a corn field in a T pose all day, but not a crow would be frightened because this scarecrow is just so cute.  The outfit comes with the straw hat, scarecrow make-up and sunflower.

Layna and Lanie

TinRoof "Layna"

TinRoof "Lanie"

This dress and jacket combination led my mind in so many directions that it was hard to narrow down to just two looks. In the end, the striped jersey knit and bohemian inspired silk dresses won out, both topped with softly worn denim.

The Lanie striped dress comes with a HUD that offers three color options.  It’s out at my main store for only 250L.  You’ll find it right next to the refugee t-shirts which are free.

The Layna boho inspired dress and jacket have been set out at the TGIF area just outside of Blacklace for only 99L.

I’ll be working on something for Halloween over the next few weeks.  If you have ideas or requests, please send them my way!

Refugees’ Lives Matter

The quote on the back of this t-shirt is by a Greek woman that saved a refugee from drowning in the ocean. She received thanks from people all over the world, but she said that she doesn’t think she did anything out of the ordinary and would hope that everyone else would have done the same thing. In contrast to the man that allowed over 70 refugees to suffocate in the back of his truck, I think she is amazing and I, too, wish that everyone in the world were like her.

Making a statement. Be humane.
Making a statement. Be humane.

If you’ve been watching the news reports about refugees scattering all across the world, seeking safety, you have undoubtedly seen a mixed bag of reactions to their migration.  Some countries have build barriers to keep them out, while others have welcomed them in; some people have taken advantage of them and even attacked them, while others have fed them and given them shelter.

Three colors of this t-shirt are available for free at my in-world store, on marketplace, and in the TGIF section outside Blacklace.  The vendors may request 1L but then they return it to you afterwards.  If they do not, please let me know.  The shirts are mesh in standard sizes and I am wearing it over the Maitreya Lara mesh body in the photo.
