news you guys ... SD is going to do something awsome and exciting ... yes really you're not dreaming i'm telling you the truth. when is visited USD today i found a post about a new store which is going to be released... its called Harrods and i think its a cooperation with SD and the real HARRODS a luxury mall located in london. i think you all know it. USD released some preview pictures what the store is going look like. 

from the three lables (CHLOÉ, GAULTIER JUNIOR and RYKIEL ENFANT) which are going to be avalible at the SD harrods store the chloé store is my favourite. if you want to see the other to make sure to visit USD.
while writing this post i recognized some of the clothes are already avalible in the search function of the starplaza so if you can't wait any longer here is you chance. 

also make sure to visit this post again i will update it as soon as the official store is released to show you some real life versions (i hope i will find some) and my review of course. 

so long


ok i'm a little late with this update and i hope you guys can forgive me. i have to say i'm still thirlled by the new harrods section of SD but (yes of course there is a "but"...) after i calmed down a bit and relaxed myself i'm able to have a more neutral view on those 5 new stores (by the time i updated this post 2 more stores (versace and supertrash) have been added to the harrods starplaza section). calm like i'm now i can make sure to give you a honest and reasonable review and you all know what that means ... yes it is ...

the whole idea of a complete section only for luxury real brands amazed me in the second i realised what the new harrods and SD co-op will be about. since all the other realbrands slowly (accept the tributes) vanished it's nice to see some big fashion houses back at the starplaza. the graphic isn't the best but not the worst ether so that means we will get new stores full of new clothes and they arn't as bad looking as the clothes from "normal" starplaza shops.
the prices are ridiculous (for the quality of the graphics) and of course non-superstar won't be able to buy more then one or two pieces. furthermore imagine if every week a new harrods real brand store is going to open (and the prices will stay that high) the users will have to spend more SD than they would normaly do, means if you're not one of those dolls who earn enough money by selling designs, at the bazaar etc, you have to top up more often (not imagine what happens when LE is being released).
there is another point which i can't decide if it really is a contra point: the collections which will be released or already have been released are all childrenswear. some users mentiond therefore the clothes are looking childisch, first i couldn't agreed because the clothes which were released with the first three shops didn't  look childish to me and to proof how good those clohtes of those three stores can be combined for a not at all childisch look i created a outfit for every one of those first three shopes which had opend (sonia rykiel, chloe, gaultier)...
 rykiel enfant
 wave shorts (15$)


beige silk dress (20$)


junior gaultier

 beaded collar black dress (24$)

... but now the other two stores opend there doors and i have to admit childish is the right word do descirbe some of the garments. but lets face it the times of old LE, st. trinians and tingeling halloween couture are over we need to look forward to new shops and collections which may will be as awsome as those oldies but new instead.

is something i barely use in real life, i prefer lipgloss and nude tones (only chanel of course haha) but as i said so many times my doll is a way of expressing myself in many different ways. so her lips are always painted and i'd like to present to you 3 of my all time favourite lipstick make up looks.


i used: peachy keen lipstick by dot (8 $)

how to do it:

first, go to face and body and change the color of your lips into the above shown tone this tone is a good base for the nude look we want to create. now change to make up  and choose a very pale lipstick tone (i used peachy keen by dot). the orange basic tone we've choosen befor is now helping to create a pale skin tone without to much pink in it which is the reason why i've choosen especially this lip tone.

i used: black lip pen by dot (9$) as a base
technogoth lipstick by dot (8 $)

how to do it:


pretty easy but the effect is wonderful. use a black lipstick as base (only use one layer!) and cover it with the purple lipstick (again only use one layer, you may haven't noticed it before but like the eyesdow and the blush the lipsticks on SD are slightly transparent when using them on your doll), and your romantic goth lips are finished. 


i used: black lip pen by dot (9$) as a base
feu d'artifice lipstick by l'occitane (18$)
fire for hire lipstick by dot (8$)
living coral lipstick (8$)

how to do it:

you start with the black lipstick (one layer only!) and now you apply the feu d'artifice lipstick or any other bordeaux tone lipstick you have (also just one layer), you should try to only cover the outlines of your dolls lips so that you still can see some of the black lipstick ( as shown in the second picture below). now focus on the middle line of your dolls lips and paint them with the fire for hire lipstick or any other bright red lipstick you have. try to only color the middel and let some of the bordeaux still be visible like you see in the third picture below. we are doing this to ge the effect of a vampire who just drank some blood (spooohooky haha) and to create a romantic fall look. to finish the look also use the living coral lipstick (or any coral or light pink tone lipstick you can find in your beauty parlor) so that the effect looks even more realistic. for this lipstick look i got inspired by PAT MCGRATH's work for GUCCI's fall ready to wear 2012 collection "dark romance" ... perfect for the month of halloween don't you think.

befor i will go back to my lazy-sunday-tv-pogramm-day i have one last think to show you, when traveling through the suits of my my bf dolls i also visited KLADIAA i already did a post about her and when i saw this outfit i couldn't resist showing it to you guys. she really created a wonderful outfit which makes me think about marie antoinette by sofia coppola she just chosen the right colors and combied everything so very well i'm impressed. 

p.s.: it's kind of surprising how some people begged in their presentations to not be voted for MSW and now that thei're are in the semifinals they're so proud getting this far they post it in their presentation plus showing everybody the little reward thing you get when reaching semifinals ... common you hipster assheads just admit that you were scared to not reach so far so you start the tactic of anti-advertisment (don't buy this toilet paper it's too soft for your butt)... it's really emberessing and pathetic sorry but i just needed to let that out. and for all my german readers please use this last day and keep voting for isa (DieDunkleMaid) she really wants and deserves this.

enjoy the rest of your sunday i will surely do.

Alison Mosshart

is one of my biggest female idols (besides chloe sevigney and coco chanel) and from today on you can dress this rad chick on stardoll. sometimes we forget about the very basic thing this virtual world is build on ... dress up games. thats why once in a while (when after hundrets of dress up dolls i never have heard about in my life) i like to present a doll to my dear readers.

click on the picture and start dressing up!

the look is pretty well done but (and this is a huge BUT!!!) the clothes dosen't fit her style at all. mosshart isn't a tokyo pop shibuya  she is grunge, garage and most important edgy and not freaky (ok a bit freaky but not in a crazy-neon-color freaky way). 

alison mosshart is part of the british amercian music duo THE KILLS (which is one of my favourite bands ever) she sings and plays the guitar. she also is part of the band THE DEAD WEATHER a project of some really well known indie musicians like JACK WHITE.

that's it for today, i'll try to post a longer post as soon as i get any good ideas but for now i hope you like the short ones aswell ...

Back Again

and i hope you guys are still with me. the last weeks my life outside of stardoll got really stressfull so i just hadn't the time to post plus stardoll bored the hell out of me (if you can say it that way excuse my bad english haha!). the most exciting thing happening during the last weeks was the release of the the latest young hollywood collection and even here i was more than bored though i really liked a few things i sadly was to late to buy them.  
but when i logged into my account today i got the feeling my doll looked like a lazy old housewife and the last post on this blog is way to old! i need spend some time on her and my blog!and as if sthe sdstuff just heard my thought i found some amazing freebies which i have to tell you about.

ok if you want to have these things you should follow the instruction of this USD post.

freebies are something i'm not a big fan of (mostly). often you can see why they're freebies they look cheap on the other hand it's nice to get something for free especially when you are new on sd or just not the type of user who spend real money for virtual gold coins and this is why i'm really happy when i find some freebies which aren't cheap looking like those above (look at those super rad motorcycle boots!!!). oh! one thing if you use a proxy log out of your normal stardoll and if you can type your password with the digital keyboard.
