Musashi-Do Makes A Comeback!

As much as I love new designers, I also love when older designers come out from a long break and begin again. Shiryu Musashi, designer of Musashi-Do, first opened his doors in Second Life in 2004, but took a long hiatus from designing for avatars while attending fashion school in the physical world. But Shiryu is BACK with a brand new line of super cute bikinis and tanlines!

In 3 different styles [Wave Flow, Seaside Crescent, and Summer Sky] and lots of print and color options, you will absolutely find a bikini you love. With each bikini you get the matching tan lines so you can add that little bit of realism if you’re playing on the beach and oops, your top falls off! Or maybe you just find tan lines sexy. 😉 There are three different shades of tan lines as well, so you can adjust the level of the lines on your skin.

The bikinis range in price from $180-250L for a single [depending on print], and $660-899L for a fatpack. The bikinis are also transferable, so it’s good for gifts!

This is definitely a great comeback for Musashi-Do, and I know I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Sweet Candy!

If you know about the Creators Stamp Rally, or maybe read my post on my personal blog talking about how you do it, you might be wondering what’s out there to buy so you can get one of those stamp cards. I’ll tell you what I bought that got me 6 stamp cards really fast…. Bikinis and flip flops!!

**DP**YumYum, which is giving out an incredibly adorable sheep avatar for their CSR gift, has some super cute clothes. When I saw the Candy Bikinis and their matching sandals…well, I couldn’t help myself. So so cute and the Candy name fits the bikinis and sandals well because they’re so sweet, I want to lick myself when I’m wearing them.

Super cute and super affordable, the Candy Bikinis and the matching sandals come in 4 colors. I didn’t pick up the yellow one, so I’m just wearing them in pink, orange, and green. They come with the ribbon ties and the little poofy ruffle skirt. My favorite part is that they don’t make you floss! Oh, you know what I mean. 😉 The sandals are in the same print as the bikinis in a smushy little ruffle.

The bikinis are $150L and the sandals are $100L. AND you get a stamp card in each! I didn’t see a fatpack option available, which is a shame because I would have fatpacked most definitely. Get over to **DP**YumYum and get yours today!

Bikini Queenie

I love a good bikini. The problem I find with most bikinis in Second Life is that they tend to give away the farm. If I’m on the beach with someone special, I don’t mind showing off in a teeny bikini, but for a beach party, I’d rather not be flossing.

SySy Chapman’s new Halterbikinis are soooo perfect for public wearing! Especially since they come with little matching pareos. Check it out!

In 5 luscious colors [aqua, lavender, lime, orange, and pink], these bikinis are just adorably decent. And you can add the matching pareo to cover up even a little more. I did have some trouble with the pareo because I’m fairly slim and they didn’t seem to want to resize down further so they were big on me, but if you’re good with modding [and care that much], you can always adjust each prim individually.

Each bikini is a true steal at $95L and I don’t believe there is a fatpack option available.

Be sure to wander around and look at all the other wonderful clothes that SySy offers. You’re sure to find something great that you can’t help but take home with you!

EmJay Keeps Me Half Naked!

One of my new friends, Magen Jigsaw, is a budding designer. When she asked me, very cutely, if I would maybe want to review some of her work, I jumped at the chance because as you all know, I do love new designers!

Magen’s new brand, EmJay, is just as fun and colorful as she is! You won’t be able to find her work in world just quite yet, but please check out her items on XStreet. According to her design blog, her new store should be appearing in world in the next couple of weeks. Hurry up on that, Magen! 😉

So what will you get at EmJay? Well, you saw a couple of posts down a really cute t-shirt I was wearing, so you already know there’s t-shirts, but Magen has also designed a LOT of bikinis. And I know you bikini queenies out there are going to want to check these out. The bikinis fill two of my basic needs when looking for a bikini in SL. They are cute, and they cover up all of the important parts. AND they don’t leave you flossing, if you know what I mean. Check it out!

I’m only wearing three prints in this photo, but there are MANY different prints to choose from, with more coming all the time! What I really like is on the top, the string actually appears to be going inside the cups, it’s not just smooth at the bottom. One thing I would like to see is maybe a tie or clasp in the back, just to give it even more realism. But I’ve been running around my beach in bikinis for the past couple of days, so obviously it’s not bugging me too much! Each bikini is $150L, or there are two different fatpacks available for $750L and $650L.

And you can’t see them very well, but I’m also wearing a pair of EmJay eyes. I know, I took my beloved Miriels off! 🙂 EmJay eyes are very uniquely colored, so definitely worth a look. Each eye color is $100L, or fatpack it for $650L.

Keep your eye on this new designer, because I have a feeling she’s going to be worth watching!!

Fab Fab Pony!

Since I’m so into the beach these days, I’m always on the lookout for new bikinis. When I heard about the new swimwear line from Fab Pony, I knew I just HAD to check it out! Now I’ll admit that my very first impression of Fab Pony a few months ago was far from fab, but I’ll tell ya, I’m starting to really really like that place!

The new Fab Pony swimwear collection has 5 different bikinis, but I’m just going to show a couple here. You’ll have to actually head out to the store to see the rest!

First up, the Wild Child Bikini.

The Wild Child is a fun little number with some fringe to bounce around as you run around the beach. I wasn’t a huge fan of the fringe at first, but it’s growing on me, and of course you don’t have to wear the fringe if you don’t want to. I just really love the texture and the print on these! The Wild Child comes in 2 colors for $289L each.

And my favorite of the entire group, the Disco Sequin Bikini!!

The Disco Sequin bikini is so much fun, and perfect for all those beach parties that are going on! It comes with the prim hip ties, which of course you don’t have to wear. But it’s just so freaking cute! I’m wearing it in Iced Plum, but there are 6 colors available. They are $229L each, or fatpack it for $1005L.

I also paired this bikini up with Fab Pony’s Viper sunglasses in Animal Plastique. There are 7 colors of sunglasses for $149L each, or $749L for a fatpack. I think they’re adorable!

Fab Pony also has prize camping, and a lot of cute things that you can doll up your wardrobe with, so definitely worth a look!
