So the Arcade is gearing up for another round that starts December 1st at midnight. judging by this shopping guild the December 2013 Arcade looks pretty amazing. A few of my favorites include the Pop Boots from Gizza, the Sloth ht from 8f8, the MishMish penguin avatars, and all the items from Shi to name a few. Earlier today I stopped by and picked up a few things and thought it would be fun to put a look together. Once this look was done the song “Royals” kept playing on repeat in my head. It could be the coat, or the crown, or the bad ass gloves but what ever it is I dig this look.
To start off with the Gacha fun I picked up these Frosting Coats and Tin Mitts from Rachel Breaker. The coats are amazing and look like over sized fur coats. At first I was a little worried I could not unisex these but it turns out they work pretty darn good with male avatars. The Tin Mitts have to be my favorite item from Rachel Breaker this round. They are fully mesh gloves with this cool armor like detail. The silver one is my favorite but I am going to try to collect them all because they are just that good. I think at this point is when “Royals” started playing in my head so I threw on a crown from Ladies who Lunch. In this set there is a grown called Queen Bee that would be perfect for the whole them of the song (“You can call me queen bee”) but it’s Rare and well… So I went with the just as pretty Dark Queen crown in black.

This time a year there is starting to be a small chill in the air. The coats come out of the closet, boots get polished, leaves start to change colors. Autumn by far is my favorite season. Layers start appearing more in every day fashion and the coats! So many coats. FATEwear’s latest released gave this amazing coat that I based this look on.
As you can clearly see, I am still pretty addicted to these Mesh hands. I don’t think I will take them off really. In fact, one of the main factors from now on in getting a skin is if I can make my slink hands match. THEY ARE JUST SO GOOD!

So, a few events have started this past weekend that I think you should know about. I was lucky enough to have a blogger pass to both of these and I would like to share what I have found.

One of the things I suck at the most
(other than styling) is coming up with blog titles. I always get a look ready, take the pictures, edit the pictures (which is not that hard since I don’t do much to them) and …shit. I have to think of a blog title. If you look at my blogs, all of them, a lot of them have the word day in them. Or they are similar. Like a fine day, or summer’s day or day I slept with your mom. But regardless, I have a look for you.
Every time I do one of these looking using elements that are not typical (most of the times it’s hair) I always feel hear someone say “They will all laugh at you.”. Have you ever seen the movie Carrie (if not go see it) you know the part where Carrie’s mom is trying to stop Carrie from going to the prom. That is me and my blog. Except unlike Carrie I don’t have magical powers to kill people’s asses if they laugh.
But enough of my oddness. I want to talk about the hair since it is such a big part of the look. (get a better view under the cut). A lot of the times in SL, we are users have to tint things to make them perfect. This was one of the main reasons why I was a little worries about mesh and hair. A lot of designers of hair do not have Gabieglam Ginger. So I have to tint a lot of shit. One of those brands is Boon. I love Boon, it’s a great hair store and I want to have babies with all the dreadlock styles. But I am not in love with the red pack. LUCKLY Boon allows you to tint. To get GabieGlam Ginger, I bought the blonde pack and tinted the blonde option to this color. Same thing with the hairbase which you have to wear to make the style work.

Hello Tragic Followers. I am continuing my highlights of Hair Fair 2012. Today’s post I am using hair for Magpie. It’s a nice hair/hat combo called Beggin, Beggin You. The hair is really cute and the band around the hat is color mod so you can change it to match any outfit.
Also, I want to remind you of The Men’s Dept. Most of the item in this look are from the sales event. This round ends soon so make sure you hurry up and go get these amazing items.
Yesterday I was playing with my Avatar creating myself a new alter ego. A few months ago, I bought my Redgrave Edward skin. I figured that you can’t have a Edward skin with out creating an vampire alter ego. Go guys meet Xander my new Vampire alter ego. I washed him up and made him all pretty for your viewing pleasure.
It’s been a crazy few weeks. But I am back.
In the past few weeks a few events have come up. Last week was Menswear Fashion Week 2012. Sadly the event is closed but I did manage to pick up a few things. Mesh things. For men. I was happy with the amount of mesh items during the fashion week. Brands including Gizza, Havok, Sys. Gabriel and others released new mesh items. I am not sure if these items are yet in the mainstores but keep an eye out. Also Narcissus’ room is in it’s third round.
So, Menswear Fashion week is almost here and I for one am excited. It is going to be a sim full of men’s items and some of those stores will be releasing items exclusive to the fair. With that being said. I will be blogging some of the review items I get from designers. These items will not be for sale until the Fashion Week Starts on the 23rd.
I am the boy who envies with longing in his eyes. I want everything you have, everything I own I despise.
Welcome to Tragicly Styled a new blog from me Gabe Bookmite. There is really nothing different from my old blog Gabieglam, but I honestly wanted a fresh start. I have always felt that my avatar was more than one person. Like every time I change my skin and my hair I become someone else. This is less of a fashion blog but of a playground for my alter egos. This blog will also be used as a journal or for what ever I want. After all the tittle is called Tagicly Styled and what is more tragic than someone with multiple personalities who likes to share how he feels to the whole world. Continue reading
