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.

The Eyes Tell a Story

The Eyes Tell a Story
When I signed in-world yesterday after work I was surprised with an invitation to the POEMA bloggers group. I had applied a few weeks ago but didn’t hear, so to be honest I assumed I hadn’t been chosen. When that invite came through, I cheered! It’s so exciting to be chosen and I can’t thank Matilda enough. This is my inaugural entry with POEMA. If you’ve followed my blog and/or photos, you know that I love moles. As a model striving for a unique look and someone who is covered in freckles and moles in real life, having access to mole appliers is a must in Second Life. What’s even better about these ones from POEMA is that they were made specifically for the Genesis Labs heads. They go on the tattoo layer of the version 3 bento heads. I also took the opportunity with this photo to showcase a recent release from Chop Zuey, which as always is glamorous. I like the minimalist color combination of gold, white and black.

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.
