Dress Me Up Challenge: Arcadia by Ana Lutetia

9 01 2009

My next Dress Me Up Challenge is from Ana Lutetia, who said “hmmm… me thinks neko! ^^”

I know, I know, I’m way behind. I have to admit to being a little excited about this challege because I am somewhat of an Ana Lutetia fangirl. I read a lot of fashion blogs, but hers is definitely one of my favorites. So, her taking the time to give me a challenge, was very cool. I had an outfit in mind the minute I read this challenge, the Plaid Short Set from Riddle and it’s one I’ve blogged before, which is probably not the best plan, but it’s perfect for the look I wanted to end up with. However, I did take this opportunity to go out and find the best tail and ears I could find. I have one pair, and they’re…good. Just..not excitingly good, ya know?

My friend Sutcliffe had this amazing tail on one night, and after getting the landmark from him, I tp’d over to Urban Dare. I recognized the name from Ana’s blog, but I’d not gone to explore it. I’m so glad I took the time now because I LOVE this store. There’s so much to see and do on this SIM that I think I spent at least two hours there, and that’s saying something for she who has been known to tp out of a store in less than a minute. The first thing I bought was the ear and tails. The quality here is amazing.

Now, if you’ve read any of my posts at all, you know I’m a big fan of versatility, and the Neko Furry Tail and Neko Ears are the epitome of that. They come with a ton of options, from tail and ear length, to colors, to sound…a drop down menu is full of fun choices to help you coordinate your tail and ears with your outfit. Or, if you prefer, you can wear the HUD that comes with. I got the version with Bells, and you can toggle the level of the sound as well, which is a nice touch. There are several options to choose from though if bells aren’t your thing. Oh, and people can interact with your tail and ears, petting them, tickling them, etc. And if you’re with someone that has the same tail and ears, they interact with each other as well. How fun is that? The tail was just 200L and the ears, 150L. I’d say that’s more than a bargain for everything you can do with them.
