oh no! The Oziversary has been Taken Over!

Filed under:
"Help!" cried Dorothy. "The Wicked Witch of the West is trying to take over Oz! Will no one helps us defeat this evil plot?"

If you fail to answer Dorothy's call for help then I'm afraid, poor soul, that the Witch already has her claws sunk deep into your heart and you are beyond any help I can offer you - but those still pure of heart listen well.

After one glorious year filled with happiness and golden sunshine, a cloud of gloom is descending over Oz. From Munchkin Land to the great City of Emerald itself plans were being made for a glorious celebration to mark the one year anniversary of Magic of Oz and the good fortune the fair Candy and the gallant Malk have brought to the land. However, the Wicked Witch caught wind of the plans and is now meaning to hijack the celebration, steal all the anniversary gifts for herself, and allow only the flying monkeys to dance at the balls!

We need your help to save the Oziversary Celebration! Starting Monday, October 12th, citizens and friends of Oz alike will join forces to defeat The Witch's evil plans! 21 merchants of Oz have made gifts for those brave enough to battle The Witch. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, has learned that The Witch intends to capture the Silver Slippers and thus take control of the celebration. Glinda has made an infinite number of copies of the Silver Slippers to hide all over the Magic of Oz sim in order to confuse The Witch.

The fake slippers are of no use to The Witch but if you find a fake pair of slippers and follow the directions hidden in them, Glinda will reward you for helping to increase the Wicked Witch's confusion! The Silver Slipper Hunt will run for the duration of the Oziversary celebration, October 12-18, so be sure to find some time to come and help confuse The Witch.

In addition to the Silver Slipper Hunt, there will also be a photo contest, fishing contests with unique items to find and lindens to win, and dancing, dancing, dancing! More information to follow in subsequent posts, but remember Oz is counting on you! Mark your calendars, The Silver Slipper Hunt starts on Monday, October 12 at the Magic of Oz sim! Come and defend Oz from the plots and schemes of The Witch!

Naiad and Belisama Sets for Swansong

Filed under: ,

Candy was invited to participate in the fashion event "Black Swan - Swansong" which has an Elemental theme. She was asked to choose from Fire, Water, Earth and Air. Luckily for us she went for two of these with the polar opposites Fire and Water, but it left her too exhausted to blog and announce her releases - so I volunteered. I'm her friend Ersatz Charisma, and I'm thrilled to be able to present her best works yet, the magnificent Belisama and Naiad sets.


As you can see, Belisama's Mantle is an absolute statement piece, with the firefall flowing down the back ending in a dangle of gold chains that lick at your gown. Belisama's Jewels has the same front, and is a little simpler. This is for the days when you just want to look quietly elegant, not be the one that raises a chorus of admiration when you enter the room.


The set also comes with a Torc, it's very easily wearable and is unisex for those of you men with a little more boldness in your style.


The Naiad parure is complementary to Belisama, being the soothing waters to it's fiery tempest. Naiad also comes in a Mantle, Jewels and a Torc. But the blues used in this are best for the more delicate beauties amongst us, the cool and fair types.


As you can see, though - none of the drama of this is lost in the icy shades. It's still a spectacle, and the gloss of the waterfall is the perfect hightlight to any shade of skin.


The texture of the silvers and golds retains the hammer marks of a true jewellery Artisan. And whilst it remains a startlingly contemporary set, it will also prove a timeless piece that will still make you feel that much more beautiful every time you clasp it around your neck.

Currently only available at Black Swan sim for the Swansong Event, and it comes in separates or the complete set of each, comprising of Mantle, Jewels and Torc. And at the Swansong you can also buy the gown that I'm showing it with, Candace Aflame by Tabitha Ninetails of the Laughing Academy. These two created their items to complement each other, and it's one of the best collaborations I've ever seen.

Also worn - Pulse skin in Raven
Domestic V skin in Sketchy Bluejay
Sinter hair by Tukinowugama

Eternal Winter Necklace and Bracelet now in Main Store

Filed under:
My entry into the Fashion Designer Challenge is now in my main store at Oz! The name Eternal Winter is a play on both the inspiration of the piece (My challenge was to design a set inspired by the IceHotel in Sweden) and my continuing homage to a certain white haired vampire fashion icon. You can pick up the necklace on the new releases wall, and for the next 3 days you can get the bracelet FREE in the Baum Birthday Bash going on at Oz. There are lots of other gorgeous prizes to be had, so if you haven't stopped by I highly suggest it :) Enough words, on with the pictures!
