Feeling like Flowers

FAD 2 n3 1 pm

Hello Readers!

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. 😀

I am of course using some more awesomeness from KaTink. The background is Fresh Air 9 and I used the Andrea 5 & 8 poses from the new release available at Sneak Peek.

A lil more Halloween

Hello Readers!

So today is 50 Linden Friday and MOLiCHiNO put out a pumpkin version of their new pug coat, so I just had to slip into this perfect fall treat and show you!  So once I had the awesome pumpkin pug coat on I remembered that Marit has put out some new things too and the background and pose is all KaTink and perfect! Oh and of course there are all the cute lil (well BIG) Halloween bags Datrip made for Legal Insanity so no Halloween flavored outfit would be complete without one!

Skin Fair and More!

Hello Readers!

I am back with some more Skin Fair fabulousness.  No sooner had I made my previous Skin Fair post when a new arrival from 7 Deadly S{k}ins was delivered and they are wonderful!

I rather enjoy transforming myself in various ways in Second Life.  Could be my role play past, or the simple fact that we can be anything we like in SL.  As you may know I have been working on my SL photography skills as well as learning PhotoShop for the first time.  I know there are some amazing things you can do with PS if you have the time and the inclination.  I felt like toying around some and wanted to capture a few renditions of me in one photo like I have seen others do.  So the image below was the result.  I know it isn’t perfect, but it is much more than I could have even dreamed of attempting only a few short months ago.  I credit Nariko Okawa and WrenNoir Cerise with giving me the information and the courage to attempt this.  I cannot praise them and VISIONAIRE enough.  It is time well spent, and is helping me to become something else I thought I couldn’t be…an artist.

me meyself and I

I will be breaking down the details of what was worn on each avi below, but items not represented in other photos beyond the above are:

On Sammael:
shirt > Delirum Style by Christel Morane – Male T-Shirt
pants > Delirum Style by Christel Morane – Male Pants
shoes > Blackburns Boots & Shoes by Vlad Blackburn – Sneak Black
prop > / XIAJ x ZZANG / Red String of Fate 07 @ L’Accessories Gacha Event

Now let me take the photo apart some and show you a clearer image of the items I chose to include.  First off I want to share with you the two lovely new skins 7 Deadly S{k}ins is bringing to the Skin Fair table.

Here we have the latest from 7 Deadly S{k}ins.  The skin I am wearing is “WRATH B4b T2” and I am also wearing one of Izara’s shapes, similarly called “WRATH.” If you are not already familiar with Izara’s work, her skins come in a wide array of options, along with every applier you can think of…Slink, Phat/Cute Azz, Loud Mouth, and Lolas.  For the Skin Fair not only is she offering this wonderful skin, she is offering a few make-ups as well.  I rather enjoyed the fresh-faced look, so I am wearing the make up called “Wrath M2 DEF.”  Since it is Arcade season, I topped off the look with  a new hair from Exile called “Shine.”  This one is from the pastel pack and available at this round of The Arcade. Oh, and let’s not forget my eyes.  As they have been pretty much all the time of late, they are IKON and these in particular are “Eternal Eyes – Hazel.”

Here we have the latest in the 7 Deadly S{k}ins male skin line, Sammael.  I am wearing the Sammael shape along with the “B3T2” version of the Sammael skin. I have added /Wasabi Pills/ Dylan Mesh Hair – Black coffee and of course IKON ‘Sunrise’ Eyes – Celtic Green.  Handsome isn’t he?  Sammael and Wrath will both be available at the upcoming Skin Fair.  It opens March 14th.

Up next we have some newness from my SL Mom Discovering Destiny from On A Lark. Her most recent release is called “Nani” and I am wearing it in Sunset. I have also added another recent release of Lark’s, the Crysantha Arm Cuffs.  A better look at them can be found in my slideshow at the end of this post.

Next we have me in my usual appearance with skin by Natalie Wells of Deesses.  I have donned another recent release from Lark called “Helena.” It made me think angel, so that is what I ran with adding some wings from the past round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival by Una Daxter called “SteamPunk Wings Down.”

Helena Angel

I loved getting to pull out this older hair by Truth (from pre-mesh days)!  I have wanted to use it in a styling forever and finally had my chance!  It is called Tahnee in coffee.  I also have on the Helena collar and bangles by On A Lark.  The Helena gown comes in a few colors, a sample of which can be found in the slideshow below.

Thank you for getting through a rather wordy post of mine.  I have so much more to share and I am avoiding this paper I have to write. I guess I have put it off long enough.  Happy shopping and thanks for reading!
