Skin Fair 2014

Hello Readers!

One of the many great perks of being a part of SL Blogger Support is the early access to some pretty huge events on the grid.  In this case I am talking about the upcoming Skin Fair (Flickr).

I had already planned on going, but being the “wait-til-the-lag-dies-down” sort of shopper blogger that I am, I had chosen to wait as I knew many of my counterparts were itching for 12pm SLT today to hit the Skin Fair.

In the mean time I had been in contact with Marcopol Oh because I was one of 60 lucky models who would have her photo taken as a part of the Earth Hour project hosted in SL by Amazing Impressions Modeling (AIM) Agency. I will also be a part of this event in that the first Colour of Couture runway challenge will take place at the AIM event, but I digress.

I was floored a couple of weeks ago to learn that Marco would be the photographer behind the photos taken for the SL Earth Hour. His work as been referenced many times in my VISIONAIRE course and I am quite a fan of how realistic his SL images are.  Our schedules finally lined up some today so that we could get together.  So I don my Earth Hour outfit and accept his teleport to then get a security orb warning that I had 10 seconds to get out.  I remember the first time I saw that message…I freaked out!  Nowadays when I see it, I just chuckle and tp home to wait for it to be turned off or I get added so I can return. Today however I didn’t want to tp out on Marco so I let his orb bounce me off ban lines for a bit, which I admit was amusing.  I had to relog on account of being battered (my viewer didn’t enjoy the ban line bouncing as much as I did).  I of course was relaying all of this to Marco and he was profusely apologetic.  Upon relogging, Marco said he HAD to give me one of his skins to MAKE me forgive him. I about fell over!  I assured him I was not mad at him and found the whole thing amusing, but he gifted me with Jemma none the less.

So in honor of the treat of meeting Marco in pixels, getting to have my portrait done by him, his easy going nature, and his generosity, I present my version of Jemma, which will be available at this round of the Skin Fair!

One of the things I enjoy about blogging for designers like Legal Insanity and 7 Deadly S{k}ins is that their items are available to the mesh body part loving community of SL.  In my day to day modeling activities I rarely have a use for mesh attachments beyond hands and feet, but I do enjoy styling with the Lolas and Phat Azz when I have the chance, and Marco provided that chance!

Jemma comes in 5 skin tones: milk, pearl, peach, honey, and toffee. (I opted for toffee because I am partial to darker tones.)  Jemma also has 4 brow colors: dark, brown, blonde and ginger.  There are also 3 cleavage options, 5 different make ups for each skin color, and 5 lipstick options: gloss red, red lipstick, gloss candy, gloss nude, and gloss pink. Also included are extra layers like eyeliners, blushes, and freckles.  Appliers for Slink hands/feet, Lolas, and Phat/Cute Azz are included.  So the ability to make Jemma your own is a certainty.

I do have one more photo of Jemma to share with you.  This one was done by my dear friend Geths.  He had been toying with facial expressions on his AnyPose and was enjoying “shrug.” This expression reminded him of the .: Standby Inc. – Omen Mask (Kame Green) he had gotten at this round of The Arcade (and you can see it in the photo).  He then wanted to see me in “shrug” as Jemma and once I did it for him he had to photograph it, so here it is!


It was most definitely an amusing and eventful day in SL for me, thanks to Marco and Geths.  Do be sure to visit the Skin Fair and stop by Clef de Peau to meet Jemma for yourself. Doors will open March 14 at 12:01am SLT.

Thank you for reading!
