Happy Birthday Chop Zuey!
This is the first and most important thing I want to say this morning and I still can’t quite believe that Chop Zuey Couture Jewllery is SIX years old this weekend! SIX!
Let’s just sit back and think about that for a minute, yeah?
Six years as a designer, a brand, and a truly dedicated content creator in Second Life and after nearly twenty-two HUNDRED days on the grid, Belle Roussel’s jewellery continues to inspire as she, herself, is inspired. If I sound like a bit of a fangirl, it’s because I am. Belle was one of the first people I encountered in SL that showed an interest in my work as a stylist and for that, I am so grateful. Humbled. Still kind of amazed, haha. <3
So the jewellery featured in this post is actually FREE; I think it’s important to say that right off the bat as well. If you’re already in the ::CHOP ZUEY COUTURE:: in-world group, all you need to do is pop over there and pick up your prize! If you aren’t in the group yet, there is a fee to join but I hope you believe me when I say that the quality and frequency of group gifts available to women AND to men are just astounding.
And you get cute notices like this one:
A Quick Note from Belle:
CHOP ZUEY & I would like to Thank all it’s loyal Customers – People who have become like Family over the Years.
I know that none of the GREAT SUCCESS CHOP ZUEY has seen over these 6 years would have been possible without all of you here by my side.
FROM THE HEART – Truly would like to thank each and every one of you and wish you all Many Blessings, Love, Light & Godspeed!!!
PS -DON’T MISS THE NEW GIFTS – OMG!!! COME NOW!
I do want to take a bit more of your time to talk about the other amazing items in this picture because, not only is this a Chop Zuey Birthday EXTRAVAGANZA, but it’s also my second We <3 Role-Play preview; probably my last before the event opens at 3PM SLT today (October 4th).
The Wings: Caught me completely off-guard, to be honest, because the vendor picture for these Material Squirrel ‘Aeyron’ Wings (Light Set) does not do them justice! Heck, I hardly feel like this picture does them justice! I went with the gold option for this picture and they are just gorgeous in-world. Interestingly enough, they work very well with …
The Hair: from Tukinowaguma! I’m always on the lookout for fun and fashion-y hair and I have to say that I was amazed to see that all -three- styles available at this month’s round of We <3 RP are winners. I love the shape of this one, especially as it echoes the curling feathers in the Aeryon wings! Technically, most of what we encounter in Second Life is 3-Dimensional but this hair .. it’s hard to explain. Maybe try the demo and see if you can do a better job of it than me? ;)
The Sandals: Lassitude & Ennui is one of the two featured designers for the October round of We <3 Role-Play, which means that you will find them RIGHT at the landing point after teleporting on-sim. They are fitmesh for Slink Physique but if you don’t mind a bit of clipping, they’re fine to wear with other body options. Yes, they’re that nice with bonus points for including silver, gold, and black buckle options. Love them! Will wear many, many times (even with miniscule clipping<3).
