Tannenbaum, The Arcade, The Men’s Dept, Collabor88. Forget the list, where’s my wallet.
The beginning of December has been absolutely INSANE! We have tons of events going on all of the time but this month is especially busy with the holiday shopping season in full swing. As I’m sure everyone knows by now, The Arcade started on the first of the month. I had been waiting with anticipation after seeing sneak peeks of creations on various social media sites. Portia and I took the time to even make a list, hehe. We did last time as well, but I didn’t do a very good job of sticking to it. This time around I was diligent, with Christmas right around the bend spending has to be smart.
There were a few machines that I told Portia were my must have machines, I was playing them no matter what. The one I have showcased here today is from Remarkable Oblivion. I’ve always been a huge fan of the work that AxsisThorn does and this round was no exception. The RO – Sleigh Bells set is absolutely gorgeous. I hit that machine so many times to get all of it (needless to say I got a lot of hats. A lot.) with the sleigh being the final piece of the puzzle. After failing for a full day I ended up grabbing one from a yard sale. It is seriously something you have to see to appreciate the work put into it. We’ll be making it a staple of our holiday decorating for years to come. OH! I can’t forget about the trees! The seasonal Douglas Fir trees from Botanical could not have come at a better time. Kriss Lehman has and will always be my go to for trees, no matter what I seem to need he has it.
The first of the two Men’s events is currently going on as well. Gabriel’s TMD Dec Outfit Gacha (sensing a theme here this month?) has 14 items in total. The one that got me was of course the rare Santa set. I saw it and immediately put it with the sleigh from Remarkable Oblivion. It includes the top, pants w/ boots, and a white fur (not pictured!) that all fit together perfectly. There’s a standard version and a TMP version. I topped it off with the YOLO necklace set from [MANDALA] that’s available now at Collabor88. It fit nicely along with The Life of A Lion Men’s Brooch made by the amazing Belle Rousel of Chop Zuey. 100% of the proceeds from this piece, as well the women’s set that Portia showed here, go to the World Wildlife Fund. It runs until January 4, 2016. For more information on it head over to Chop Zuey, it’s located in the middle of the building!
