Avakin Life Amino Community

There has still been a lot of positive feedback and people getting involved, so if you haven't already, make sure you check it out by downloading below.

Fashion Weekly

All the week's new releases

Street-style clothing from Drop Science always proves popular amongst Avakins and with everything else appearing to be re-designs/releases of past items this week, this great new collection from the brand is what most people were being seen in.

Both the guys and girls received six torso items, to be mixed and matched with a couple of street-style pants, in various styles particularly in the girls collection.

Featuring - Freya xTRDx, Pŕŷå ҳŦŔĎҳ, Jetaime Bolafeld, ۵ÇöfféèĶål۵хŤŔÐx, ΣVILICӨЦS XŦЯDXރ, XmissymissXTRDX
Featuring - χXJöńXχтяdχ

For those of us who have been playing Avakin for a while, the masses of Cloudnine dresses released this week may have seemed familiar and there was some confusion as to if we'd purchased some of them already in the past.

As far as we can tell, the seven different styles we received from Cloudnine this week, were possibly slight variations and re-releases of items we may have seen in the past, but in a range of separate colours opposed to being able to change/choose the colour ourselves.

Either way, each of the seven different styles made available this week can be bought in all our favourite colours, so there really is something to be found to suit literally anyone's tastes this week.

Featuring - Pŕŷå ҳŦŔĎҳ

Secrets also released a seemingly familiar collection of underwear and suspenders similar to some items we have seen in the past.

Even so, the collection gave the girls a range of underwear sets in many colours with burgundy, red and black suspenders to match some of them.

Featuring - Jetaime Bolafeld, ΣVILICӨЦS XŦЯDXރ, ஐmäddíşşönஐxTŘĐx, Pŕŷå ҳŦŔĎҳ, ஜმทցęใիèárեஜxŢŘĐx, XmissymissXTRDX, ۵ÇöfféèĶål۵хŤŔÐx

Every now and again Lockwood seem to throw in that one single item that appears unrelated to everything else released that week. Whether re-released or a similar design to a previous item, this single sparking gown from Mon Coeur also appeared in store on Tuesday.

Featuring - ஜმทցęใիèárեஜxŢŘĐx

This Friday's Ikon release received a mixed reaction amongst the community this week, with the girls mostly enjoying the Moonlight dress, but with a lot of guys unhappy with the colour of the Bonfire suit they received.

All that aside, the Moonlight dress gave us a gorgeous metallic silver gown with a plunging neckline and hand-embroidered crystal details, whilst the Bonfire suit gave the guys a luxurious brown velvet suit with a retro bow-tie.

Avastyle Weekly 'Look of the Day'

This week's Avistyle Weekly 'Look of the Day' has been taken from both LKWD Ria's official post based around an item from last week's real world Garage collection and Faith Avakin again takes over from Emeana Avakin for other weekly fashion ideas.

Also this week, Elsamara Sapphire Levin provides us with her fashion review - In this edition she takes a look at swimsuits, and in particular the Bandage Bikini collection from Secrets.

LKWD Ria's Advice

To achieve that day-to-day style look perfect for a girls trip to the mall, Ria advises us to combine the below items.

Avistyle Weekly 'Look of the Day'

Outfit of the Day: The Professional Dancer

Faith Avakin may live in NYC these days, but she is a Latin goddess from Puerto Rico at heart and dancing is a big part of her culture back home.

To look and perform like a professional dancer, whether it be to pull off the sexy salsa or the tantalising tango, Faith shows us how by combing some of the below items.

Fashion Review by Elsamara Sapphire Levin

Swimsuits are out - Get ready for the summertime

Swimsuits invoke some of life's most pleasant moments. Strolling and running down the beach, swimming in the ocean, diving into a cool pool on a hot summers day, dancing on the beach and having picnics by the pool.

This is the stuff vacations and weekends are made for - simple, relaxing and utterly carefree.

Secrets had this in mind when they put out the Bandage Bikini collection. They gave us these beautiful colours black, red, yellow and purple. A range of styles that are the trend and ooze poolside glamour. Many have been seen on celebrities and are perfect for you to stand out amongst others.

So ladies, show off your assets in these beautiful swimsuits. Have a beach or swimming pool party. It's your time to shine!!!

Avakin Life Apartment Design

A big part of Avakin Life is owning your own apartment and customising it to suit your taste or perhaps for that special occasion/event. With so many apartments now available to buy or win, it's sometimes difficult to keep up with what's new and what items are inclusive to collect.

Luckily for us, Brandy Burry's brilliant Avakin Life Apartment Design Facebook/Instagram pages are a great source of information on all the latest apartment releases and provides some great ideas, hints, tips and examples on how to decorate each apartment to get us started. The page also boasts some beautiful photography.

This week we get Lockwood's run down on the new Kyoto Mountainside House - Night apartment featured on the page, we get details of the brand new decor design contest, Brandy provides us with a useful guide for inclusive items available for one of the newer apartments and she also shows us some of her useful ideas, hints and tips for the Kyoto Mountainside House - Night apartment.

The Kyoto Mountainside House - Night Apartment

By Lockwood

A night time Japanese home in the mountains of Kyoto. Take a moonlit stroll to the outdoor shrine, or swim into the glowing rock cavern.

A traditional style Japanese house, complete with paper walls, rock gardens and tatami mat floors. Japanese houses have flexible layouts, allowing you to section off rooms with screens and use them for any purpose.

Add a kotatsu and shelving for a studying, a bed or futon for sleeping, or a dining table and chairs to form a dining room.
