Happy Thanksgiving From the Sports and Leisure Desk at SLE- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

 

Gobble Gobble!


Thanksgiving and Halloween are sorts of the co-anchors of the Autumn season. Autumn starts in September, but September and early October can still have some nice days, at least where I live (Massachusetts). Halloween and Thanksgiving fall (no pun intended) is a time of year when there is no doubt that Summer has left the building. I've bundled my children up in winter coats to send them trick or treating, and I've sat at a Thanksgiving football game where it was 12 degrees outside.


This cold dichotomy may lead some people to hate Autumn, but not this reporter. I love the change of seasons, I love the fall foliage and I love all the harvest stuff going on at local farms. One of the reasons that I haven't written here in a while is that I spent a lot of October and November driving around to look at trees changing color or roaming through pumpkin patches like Linus. There are other reasons, but they are sad ones, and this is supposed to be the Enquirer's funny column, so no need to drag that all up here.

I was looking to write about Thanksgiving and especially Plymouth. Plymouth is the birthplace of Thanksgiving (Jamestown had the real first Thanksgiving, but Virginians need to argue with their underperforming public relations staff, not me). I live deep enough in real-life Plymouth County that I can see the Mayflower II across the bay from my house. Seeking to capitalize on this unearned Dad-bought-a-house-here expertise, I hunt incessantly for Plymouth-related sims every November so that I can let the people know my wisdom.

Only once in my years working for this publication have I found Plymouth on SL, and- to be frank- it looked more like northern California... and I say that in the "Sacramento is not California" sense that Rush Street Reggie made famous. They had a Mayflower, a few colonial-looking cabins, and some turkeys running about. I was very pleased, and Lanai got a Thanksgiving article out of me that year. That sim is something else these days, and I could find no substitute for it any other year I looked.

This year also failed to net me a Plymouth, but that doesn't mean my deadline goes away, so I had to hunt me up some Autumn somewhere.

I found Autumn in spades at the Mieville Thanksgiving Street Fair. This is a very nice sim that is all set up for the Fall season. as you can see from the pictures, they have turkeys, fireplaces, fall foliage, November-blooming flowers... all that good stuff.  The sim is cleverly constructed so the visitor walks around a pastoral autumn scene, but as they do, they go by little sales kiosks where they can purchase seasonally-themed products.



It makes for a very nice walk and is a good setting for some cute pictures. I heartily recommend it. They have the autumnal theme running through the 25th, so hurry on down this long weekend. Much like real life, there isn't much time for you to see Fall things... it will be December before you and I speak again.

People take things in SL for granted. If you go to a sim where it is done up for Autumn, you should rightfully praise whoever set the sim up. You should also, however, appreciate the infrastructure which provides the things that you see at that sim. You have to find someone who sells Autumn trees, turkeys, horns-o-plenty, Mayflowers, and what have you. SL is funny like that- many people play SL just to have cyber sex, but there are people who log on to SL and spend the day making Pilgrim hats. Because of them and the sacrifices they made, the sim you get laid at has a nice, comforting Autumn look. A timeless Norman Rockwell background takes some of the shame out of av-fucking a stranger.

Because there are designers who make turkey tailfeathers and Pilgrim costumes, my sister Courtney and I have seasonally-themed outfits for our job as dancers. Being from Plymouth, I was a natural for the Naughty Pilgrim costume. Not being from Plymouth, my sister ended up having to be a turkey. I didn't think to include my costume, which is just black lingerie with a Priscilla Alden bonnet, in this article. There was no way in Hell I was going to forget to highlight my sister with goofy turkey feathers attached to her lower spine. 

I won the next season, too... I get to dance as Mrs. Claus, while Courtney will spend December wearing reindeer antlers with blinking Christmas tree lights on them. Much like her tailfeathers, she loves when people ask about her antlers, why she has to wear them, whether she lost a bet or not... go on down and say hello.

People should also not take Autumn for granted. Autumn gets a bad rap, basically because it is Summer's pallbearer. Never forget that Autumn stands between Summer and the ice/cold/snow of Winter. Winter's main holiday- Christmas- is all about snow and cold. There will be months where you'd be thrilled to see a forecast for the day as "highs in the 40s, lows in the 30s." People in western New York right now wish it was 48 degrees.

The key is to see the bright side. Go out even on SL- and see some trees changing color. Get an apple cider donut. Watch some farmer harvest something. Remember, in about a month, it will be too cold to go out. Go down to the Mieville Thanksgiving Street Fair and see some Autumn. Otherwise, once you go down the list some, you'll end up at Divas, watching a stripper journalist dressed as a Pilgrim... or her sister Courtney, dressed as a turkey.

The positive part of journalism is informing the public, sharing your adventures, helping someone who needs help, promoting good causes, blah blah blah... the negative but fun part of journalism is using your column to humiliate your sister, who might have to dance for all comers dressed as a turkey.

This Year, Falloween Fell On A Weekend... Stacey Cardalines Reporting...


Who doesn't like fall foliage? It's one of the few non-syrup reasons I go to Vermont. Autumn colors are my favorite colors, and I even like the air best in fall. I have turned down pretty good jobs in real life that would move me out of New England, partly because I would greatly miss the change of the seasons. People from Maine or Cape Cod often joke about how the tourists all bail before the best season comes, and fall foliage is a big part of that equation.

I'm easy to please with Autumn. I'll be upfront with you that this applies to SL as well. Looking at leaves while playing a game like SL- where you can do virtually anything that can be animated- may seem dull, but if something brings you enjoyment RL, why not check it out in SL? That is actually a pretty good policy to follow, as long as you keep an open mind for new things, or even things you just may not have thought to check out. That's why the gods gave us the SL Enquirer, we do a lot of the leg work for your imagination.




You lose a few things between RL and SL when leaf-peeping. You don't get the crisp fall winds, the smell of falling leaves, the sounds of leaf blowers, the cooling air... the whole October aspect. Some of this can be offset by leaving the window open in your office when playing SL, at least if you live in Massachusetts. We can't add "three hour drive into the mountain forest," but they have driving sims in SL, so you could just go to a few of those to recreate that part. You can even drink some cider or eat some pumpkin pie as you play SL. I can't do all the thinking for you, but I have done enough to kill this paragraph. I have like seven pictures to frame this story around, and tangents are both a writer's best friend and her worst enemy.

I drag my husband along checking leaves if I can't talk any of my girlfriends into driving to the Berkshires in real life. He goes, and claims to enjoy it, but I think he enjoys it like I enjoy going to things that he likes, such as monster movies or car races. "Yes dear, it's wonderful." He knows I'll at least feed him at some point, so it all works out. On such things are happy marriages built.



I went to Falloween by myself, but I usually work solo if I don't need a model. I do my dirt all by my lonesome, as the song says. I'd recommend that for serious Fall folks. A yapping friend or a disinterested spouse are distractive variables, and I don't care if "distractive" might not be a word. Hardcore leaf peepers know of what I speak, and they know that I speak words of Truth.

The good people at Cherished Melody must be fellow lovers of Autumn because they turned the sim out in full fall foliage regalia this year. The sim is known as Falloween, at least for this month. I went through it this morning, and it is lovely. I'd guess that the sim owners are New Englanders, but you never know. I went to a Plymouth sim once, and the owner turned out to be from friggin' Germany.

They have a path that winds through a fall forest, and there are little surprises along the way. Said surprises include a scary graveyard, a witch house, a castle sort of building, and perhaps a few other things. They also had an Autumn-themed art exhibit with pictures of girls in various orange and black. You could spend a good amount of time just checking that stuff out. The graphic artist was quite talented. In fact, whoever put the sim together is pretty talented his or her bad self. They hit Autumn out of the damned park.



Falloween is not a massive sim, you'd have difficulty getting lost in it. However, it was laid out cleverly, and you can kill some time strolling through it. If you need a temporary chill spot to do some messaging or chat to a friend, this would be good for it. If you own spooky clothing, this would be a good sim to go to and just pretend to be part of the exhibit. I do it now and then, people get spooked if the exhibits start talking to them. I didn't do that here, I was there in a bathing suit- as much as I love Autumn, I tend to let go of Summer with great difficulty. Stacey sometimes goes to her SL Enquirer job straight from the beach, player.




However, the real reason you go to this sim is to stroll around and enjoy the various leaves. You could conceivably do this on SL in July or January, but October is when you should be doing it. I don't know how long they keep this sim up, but there is a season for everything, and you should already be heading to this place. I don't write these articles for exercise. I actually write them for money, but helping out my readers is an added bonus.

FALL FASHION TRENDS 2018 Cecilia Rosalie Reporting

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something, but to make a long story short I am back, refreshed and bringing you tons of (fashionable) goodies, of course.

Summer is almost gone and it’s time to renew our wardrobe. In fact mine needs to be thrown away! Let’s take a look at the current fashion trends in Autumn 1018, the eccentric and surreal style is in fashion this year, and the designs and suggestions I have for you will impress you.

TREND #1

The fire red is one of the must have colors to be worn. The absolute monochrome is not forbidden and the total red look is imposed. Red will not be worn only in clothes but also in shoes and different accessories.

TREND #2

Pieces taken from the athletic clothing industry are embedded with chic pieces and the result is unique. Small details that make the outfit stand out and the athletic-chic style emphasizes its presence.

TREND #3

The crop-top trend came to stay so, the jackets for this year - leather, textile, inflatable - are cut higher and renew the fashion in the jackets, which until last year was long with sharp cut waist design.

TREND #4



The plaid pattern in all its glory. Vintage selection for Autumn 2018 that has truly been loved by most women. You will see it everywhere. In coats, skirts, trousers and shirts. The most dominating shades are gray and brown.

TREND #5

Sexy satin is back in a variety of colors. Satin dresses and tops in a straight line to flatter every shape and to highlight the femininity of every woman. We saw it with many designs such as a ties, a short sleeve,  long sleeve and more.

Highlight What is Hot for Mid Fall 2016 - What are the trending fall colors and popular fashion choices - Camury Reporting





Can you believe we're already Mid November? Time flies and autumn leaves keep falling. 

The snow will be here soon ... But there's still time to dust off our inventory, clean that boot full of cobwebs and get out that  forgotten jacket, to remake new looks for the season.

Let’s see what some of the talented designers in SL have prepared for the fall 


- Hidden hands: the clothes’ sleeves are long, hiding avatar hands. Hands can also be covered by gloves that accompany the arm’s extension.
- 70’s and 80’s Retro: a continuation of 70’s trend, with flare pants, floral dresses, turtleneck, shoulder pads and leather. The stamps feature tribal, ethnic, gypsy and Peruvian boho styles. Take the opportunity to use strong colors, like orange, yellow and vinyl.  Fringe is also in high demand.



- Exposed bust: the bust is exposed openly, with transparency or naked effects.
- Unisex: unisex style provides skirts for men and suits for women.
- Overlays: overlays are fashionable, with the use of skirts over thick tights or long trousers.
- Military uniform: the military uniform keeps going on strong, with the military officer’s coat with double button.


 - Color: Prints all over is the autumn theme, not only through the usual colors such as leopards or tigers, but also in cheerful shades like green, blue and yellow.

 - Black and White Stripe: black and white stripes will wrap many fall fashion looks and will show up in pants, shirts and coats.


- Pink Color: This color was consecrated as one of the most important colors of fall fashion. Pieces such as pleated skirts, culottes and ballet flats will be the must-haves of this style. The  color pink can be used in a full look or combined with gray, beige, blue and mustard yellow, creating a mix of ingenuity and sensuality.

- Covers: The covers, pelerines and ponchos are also in fall fashion.


In fall fashion everything can overlap, merge and mix, ie, creativity and irreverence are the watchwords.

Different looks have their places: the romantic Victorian, the grim Gothic, the hard military,the sweet ballerina, the glamorous diva, the demure schoolgirl - all these styles have their place on stage without any restriction, so choose your own and have fun!

How to Wear Hats and Scarfs for Fall and Winter -Tea Couturier Reporting...


      
Hats and scarfs are great ways to accessories your outfits and keep warm this fall. However, how do you accessorize these items well and still remain fashionable?
 To do this you have to look at the color palette of what you are wearing and also what style you wish to add these accessories to what you are currently wearing.

For a casual look I think you can get away with wearing something fun and not too formal or casual. The SG- Helsinki Scarf  comes in 5 different colors. It is warm and also suitable to be worn with any casual fall outfit.  Priced at only 10L, it is perfect in price for some added fashion flare.

What's Hot for Fall? CeciliaRosalie Resident Reporting...


 From the beginning the title itself brings about the ETERNAL subject, which is important for every woman: New season, New fashion, New trends.

 

When new seasons arrive, all the magazines are full of articles about fashion trends and catalogues. What makes this article different is that is not just a catalogue or a list with nothing else to say. We will have a closer look on what's in fall fashion; the color pallet, and several styles.

 

Let's start with colors this fall.  Keep your eyes on these pantone shades: French Roast, a rich brown hue; Honey Gold, a burnished yellow hue; Pink FlambĂ©, a vibrant pink hue; Tangerine Tango, a retro orange hue; Ultramarine Green, a cool blue-green hue; Bright Chartreuse, a cool yellow-green hue; Olympian Blue, a patriotic blue hue; Titanium, a cool gray hue; Rhapsody, a grayed-down purple hue; and Rose Smoke, a veiled rose hue.
 
Now that we have got the main idea about the dominant hues, we can move on to the specific and unique clothing styles which will be worn this fall.
