In White Houses

In White Houses
For this entry I had fun playing with windlights. It’s a treat for me to show off the awesome Lia Bento Head from Vista Animations. The range of facial expressions and emotions that come with it is comprehensive and the included HUD allows you to pause the expression if you want to use it for a photo. The lines and texture of the face look particularly great in photos. I used a free shape from Denver’s Shapes and modded it to look the way I wanted. I’m also wearing a skin from 7 Deadly Skins which is currently the November group gift. Today is the last day to get it! What makes me particularly happy is that the skin and makeup layers of the head are omega enabled, which I haven’t had with my previous heads. What do you think: should I make this my regular look from now on? I’m definitely thinking seriously about it.

Oh My…

Oh My...
There has been a lot going on in RL so I apologize for the post delay. I had fun coming up with the concept for this blog entry. The items from POEMA gave me the opportunity to create a sultry look and show-off some of the recent bento rings created by *elise*.

I wanted to add a quick review about the skin applier I’m using. There aren’t too many great appliers available for Genesis Labs heads. The best-looking appliers are from Genesis Labs themselves and other places such as ItGirls. When E. Vary recently produced 3 Genesis Labs head appliers, I was over the moon. The creator of my system skin doesn’t make Genesis Labs appliers. I wanted to find something which had similar contouring so as to look at least inspired by my system face. For me, I believe E. Vary achieved what I was looking for. The face has strong contouring, especially on the cheeks, has a freckle option AND a good skin texture. The tone was also very similar to my system skin. The only two things I hope will be updated are the removal of the faint neck seam and some softening/fixes to the knuckles on the hands. What I especially love about the face applier is that you can have the skin with eyebrows which gives you an extra tattoo layer available if you need it. For the body applier, it includes 3 cleavage options. I never had that with my system skin, so I’m quite happy. As you can tell, I overall love both the face and body applier and it was worth getting because the skin makes my avatar look chic.

A Mix of the Fantastical

A Mix of the FantasticalToday’s outfit is brought to you by Ferosh Fashion Institute. I say that because most of it was created as the assignment for Competition Modeling II class. My homework was to create a Halloween-inspired pageant styling. I figured I should use a dramatic gown, and the one created by Vann exactly fit the trick. For today’s post I specifically added the makeup and wings (which are bento!). The whole combination is a mix of dragon, demon and fairy; to be even more zany I did it in front of a vampiric background.

As an aside, this entry is exciting for me because it’s the first time I’ve been able to wear omega makeup on my Genesis Labs head! GL has updated all the head packages to include a copy specifically mapped to work with these appliers. I couldn’t be happier! That had been my only sad face moment with GL heads, but I don’t have to feel that way anymore.

Outfit: {VU} – Vanessa Gown available soon at the Catwalk Trunk Show event
Headpiece: Wicca’s Wardrobe – Dragon Queen Headpiece
Wings: Lassitude & Ennui – Fairy Wings
Make up: Zibska and Slackgirl
Pose: Posesion from the Cooper set

The Heart Knows All

The Heart Knows All
This set comes with three pendants in different sizes that hang off the layered chains. The chains comes in gold (pictured here), silver and dark silver. The metal color for the pendants, earrings and bracelets can be changed with a HUD to match whichever chains you wear. While I left the hearts and diamonds in the default color, you can actually select from a veritable rainbow that also comes on the HUD. As for the other necklace included in the set, I’m wearing the layered pearl necklace option because I thought it went nicely with the chains, but there is also a long pearl necklace included which you could opt to hang one of the pendants on. That would be equally pretty.

Jewelry: Chop Zuey – A Poor Heart Aflame set

Hair: Vanity Hair – Autumn Leaves
Dress: Kenny Rowlands – Parisian Dress (past Tres Chic event item)

This will have to be a short post for today. There is a great deal going on in my RL for the next eight days, so I have put together this entry in between the rain drops. Putting together this dancing photo was a lovely experience, especially playing with the poses and lighting. I’m sure most of you are anxiously anticipating the next round of the Arcade gacha. Don’t forget to play the Pixicat machine! Yet again, she has not disappointed with the rare item available, and I think you will like all the cute snow globes which you will receive as the commons prizes.

Dress: Pixicat – Ballerina, the rare item which will be available at the Arcade starting December 1st
Pose: Fashiowl from the My Skating set
Leg warmers and shoes: Reign – Ballerina Warmers
Head piece: Foxes – Spiritualist Head Piece
Make up: Madrid Solo – Birds of a Feather full set

Name that Tune!

Name that Tune
On social media I have noticed a lot of people wearing this dress. It definitely seems to be very popular, and for good reason. Lore did a wonderful job in designing something out of this world and fun. You can wear it to any party and also to a club. There is something about the pattern that screams freedom. I have been wearing it since she sent it to the blogger group. Yup, guilty. I think that’s what matters when you’re blogging – it’s important to show outfits that you are in love with and wear for days on end.

I also decided to wear a Genesis Labs head for this entry. It probably seems strange since I don’t look like I normally do in photos (although my husband says my avatar looks different in every single image he sees of her). The Emily head was too gorgeous not to wear. It makes me feel incredibly pretty. It’s a softer look than I usually have and that is what drew me to it. This is the blink version, which is a rare in the gacha. If you get any of the lipsticks in the gacha machine, they can be worn with it, which made me incredibly happy when I found out. The base skin in every color option is available in the box that the head comes in, but there aren’t appliers. You can get those separately. I was actually able to use the Maitreya Lara body with the Glam Affair skin tones and change it to the right tint to match reasonably well with the head. If you wear the Lara, I recommend trying that first if you aren’t interested in buying the appliers. Obviously, appliers will give you the best effect, so if you plan to wear this head A LOT, then definitely buy them.

Hair: Vanity Hair – Winehouse (part of the Mix event)
Head: Genesis Labs – Emily 2.0 from Kustom9
Pose: Posesion from the Denisse set
Dress: Lyrical B!zarre Templates – Tune from the Instruments
Jewelry: items from the Pulse Treasures Jewelry Collection from the Instruments

SHOCK at Skin Fair review

shockskinreview

Hi readers! I’m super excited to show you a skin from [SHOCK] Factory that you can find at Skin Fair 2015. It is called Mya and I think it is lovely. This is my first time blogging anything from Skin Fair. I also don’t do a ton of reviews, so I get very enthused to have the opportunity. The fair starts TOMORROW (3/13), but don’t be surprised if it takes you a while to get in. I will update this entry later with the landmark, as we are not allowed to release it yet. There are so many designers and tons of great items.

I was particularly drawn to Mya because of the detail. You know how much I love strong cheek bones, and Mya has that. The noses are particularly gorgeous in my opinion. Look at the image on my flickr for higher quality. Mya comes in five tones and five make-up options, which are mainly differences in lipstick color. From left to right the tones are chocolate, tan, tea, sugar and porcelain. My favorites in particular are tea and sugar. I’m biased because they are the closest to the skin tone I regularly wear. If you are looking to purchase lighter tones, Mya is perfect for that reason. As you can also tell, you won’t find too many in-between tones on the darker end of the spectrum, but the chocolate tone is so rich and deep. I do find it the most beautiful with the red lipstick. In this photo I am not wearing any make-up layers, but I am wearing eyelashes, so keep that in mind. You can also see that the cleavage shading is great. I love the realism of that part too. In the pack you can get appliers for a lot of mesh body parts. There are appliers for wowmeh and Slink Physique (both of which I own), phat/cute azz, lolas, banned booty, ghetto booty AND Omega. You will also find a freckle tattoo and an extra cleavage option. For all those options alone, this skin is so worth it.

Hope you get a chance to visit Skin Fair and check out this beautiful skin for yourself! Thank you for the opportunity to show you.
