This is likely my last possible reminder for you that the second round of the FAD Event is about to be done! I was having a delightful chat with Jude Tatham (the event organizer) where she reminded me this round will close up on July 25th. So that means there isn’t much time left to have a look at all the creative designs this round’s creators have in store for you.
I have been on a mesh body kick lately and as I have said before, I was a long time Physique user and recently acquired a Maitreya, and I haven’t taken it off! Well maybe once for an outfit I couldn’t make work on the Maitreya, but I have to say that is getting to be more rare than it used to be. I finally joined the Maitreya camp when I was in a show for L’Amour as they have recently launched a curvy model division and I knew I had to be a part of that. I was to model in a curvier form, but the designs were surprisingly not made for the Physique. I say surprisingly because I had pretty much encountered most designers do make Slink compatible designs. In this case I took it as a sign that I needed to stop riding the Maitreya fence and just do it. I did and was thrilled until I found my skin tone is so old… (how old is it??) that Deesses no longer makes it. I pouted for about a minute then adopted another skin from Natalie’s store that was -close- to the Silly I know and love. It was alright, but then like a week later Natalie must have read my mind (or a lot of customers got after her lol) and my skin was updated in the new shades! Since then I have barely taken my Maitreya off and always try outfits with it on first to see if it will work (if they don’t already come with a Maitreya size).
Ok so, back to the point of my post. The FAD Event round 2 is nearly over! Being that I rarely take off the fuller, updated, mesh me I found that the Alena Bow Dress by [FLRN] fit quite nicely over my mesh body and I wasn’t even wearing the fitted mesh option. I am actually wearing the medium with some alphas turned off and I really liked the fit. My close friends know I am not a ‘bow’ person, but this dress is just sooo cute and well textured I got over my bow issues. It comes with a HUD (I have said how much I love HUDs right?) that make it a bunch of dresses in one. I had a hard time choosing, but in the end this flower pattern won out.
I had to pick up this great hair from Truth called “Lucrecia.” I had to have it for its perfect flower headband and the carefree feeling it added to the look. I added some accessories from MUKA and the latest from Glamistry of course. They have their Ramonda Heels out in a new version for Kustom9, PRINTS! I couldn’t wear any with this look as the animal prints didn’t go with my flower look, but I wore them anyway for their awesome HUDtasticness. Glamistry really goes with EVERYTHING. 😀
