Review and Credits after the jump!

Cheerno Destiny has released some very original complete outfits lately, in his range “Deko’s Collection” within A.c Store. I picked the complicated belt with feather pendant in the “Cult” outfit, which offers many other items, and most of the items in “Midnight.” This “midnight” pack contains the following:

On the jacket layer, a short spencer jacket, plus a combo version of it with an striped tee-shirt underneath and a short black tee; on the shirt layer the short black tee-shirt alone or in a combo with the striped tee-shirt; a complement on the underpants layer for the striped tee-shirt worn tucked; a complement on the pants layer of the striped tee-shirt for an untucked look (to wear with pants on the underpants layer); a version of the striped tee-shirt on the undershirt layer, a pair of jeans with sculpted script resize cuffs; a pair of the same pants including a lower part of the striped tee-shirt for an untucked look, a scarf (not shown) and an armband. Nothing less! This package allows many variations, the combos make it easy to wear when the detailed layers allow a lot of mix and match play with other garment pieces.

The textures are neat, the attachments are easy to adjust, but what stands out the most is the originality of the ensemble!
Every layer is moddable for easy fitting while attachments are scripted for resizing. I just wish some of the accessories were available as separates, like this belt I picked in another outfit of the series!

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 4.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 4/5 - Price: 3.5/5 - Value for money: 4/5

Kim Food is a jewelry maker who started a range of gothic, alternative jewelry under the band “Withered Angel.” She built this amazing finger armor I’m wearing today and offers it as a gift for the easter egg hunt. It’s no secret I’m not fond of hunts, but for possibly discovering unknown talents. Not only Kim is talented, but she is one of the few who put a lot of effort and and her heart in this gift, which is so rare it has to be noted. Sadly, Kim has to quit SL for personal reasons, and runs a closing sale where all of her items are sold for incredibly low prices, until the 19th of april. While you’re looking for the finger armor, shop her creations! This armor is resizable by menu, and done with a high level of detail. It offers something unique and shows a great talent at torturing prim and manipulating them. Her textures are nice, too. Well, I’m so sorry Kim Food has to leave SL, because she is truly promising. I hope she will be back soon!

Gadge Allen just started selling some collars in sl, somewhere in the Hybrid shop! Just four leather ones for now, with original medals. I chose a St. Rita one, because St. Rita is the patron of the artists and also the one of desperate cases ;-) but you can choose St. Gertrude, patron of the cats, or a more classical Kanji or fish bone pattern. I found these collars fun and incredibly low priced: for 160 lindens, you will get 5 collars in different colors with the same medal, each in two versions, with and without particle fleas (VERY realistic, not really my thing LOL, but the Neko community who loves hanging out in questionable places will certainly enjoy it!) They are moddable, so you can adjust each piece to follow your special needs, and even add your own textures if you want to. Also, a resizer is included for your convenience. I’m sure you will enjoy their kitsch flair!

Also showing:
The latest boots for men from Shiny Things, so special, with perfectly textured sculpted prims, a very nice hair from Little Heaven, in a cool reddish brown, easy to fit with a “sophisticated-messy” cut, and one of the latest skins from Belleza, “Miguel,” worn here in facial 2 version. SKINPEDIA post about this skin to come in a few days, stay tuned :-)
