Flair set 87

91 Boots Hud

Today was a huge day, first off I moved all of my Flickr Pics over to Ipernity, which is a photo site that Whimsy Winx found when things changed at Flickr. I have a 3 month account and will see how I like it in comparison to Flickr, but I will still post pictures to both locations, as I am part of so many groups and such on Flickr. It was really easy to transfer my pictures, and it also included all the tags, names, and information along with it…so that made things simple.

Then after that I released some New Nail Appliers for FLAIR. Eight new sets with lingerie and latex themes. I am wearing one of the latex sets in this post, because I am really loving the extra long nails. Then after that Sysy, Whimsy, Kavar and I went shopping. A trip to Mandala, then over to Tee*fy and lastly Kavar and I landed at C’est La Vie. There is a sub brand inside of it called ::K:: and I fell instantly in love with this jacket and shorts set. They come in either separates or the combination, and there are three types, denim, leather or this fabulous houndstooth. There is saving on buying the combination, and there are also jackets with an undertank included. I decided to wear this great tank from Somnia underneath it, and it looks great with just the shorts as well.

Tulips

set 69 by Flair

I was lucky enough this morning to get a sneak peak of the lovely NEW foot add on jewellery, by Adam n Eve creator Sachi Vixen. They are rigged mesh, and come with 6 metals in a texture change HUD, and 12 birthstones are available to purchase. ATTENTION MEN OF SL! I personally think these will be wonderful presents for the women in your life, as they are very personal with the birthstones, and just really lovely to wear and show off your beautiful Slink Bare Feet. I will wear them again in the future for sure, and I am definitely going to be romping around the grid barefoot and jewelled up for sure.

Also NEW the Aria skins that I did a preview post on the other week, are now available in full release in the League store. The skins are beautiful with their full make up range, as well as appliers available for the feet, hands and breasts. They come in three tones, with the fatpack of all three tones available at a huge savings, so if you are on the look out for a darker skin in a few different tones, definitely check out the big pack as an option.

I have mentioned in the past how much I love a good hybrid, the mixing of system layers and mesh, to really add extra versatility to an item. This Basic Maxi dress is a fantastic example of that, and you will want as many as you can get your hands on, the style, the colours – the appliers – it all works.  I wanted to show how it can go from a casual daytime look, to a dressier night out style with a few simple items added to the look.

With the help of the lovely mesh denim jacket from Emery that is at this months FaMESHed, the combination mixed with the system layer upper portion of the dress is perfect. Adding a few bits and pieces of your favourite jewellery would add a lot of flavour to the look, but I settled for simple today. I was never into denim jackets when they were a big thing in the 80′s but one of my friends was obsessed, and after wearing this one by Emery, I can understand the attraction after all this time. The sunbrella which is a C88 event item by Yummy, is adorable, and thankfully mod also, seeing as it was a bit oversized to start with, but I made it a little smaller.

The Beat of a Drum

Indi

I have been absent the last few days, spending a little time fixing some RL stuff, and it has been relaxing. I was still able to attend to What’s New SL stuff and The Deck…but it gave me a chance to get my mind in order for the upcoming months of Hair Fair preparation. It is definitely an exciting time of the year, and there are so many great events going on now, as well as in preparation for the time before that. I heard about SummerFest yesterday and that looks like an awesome event. If you haven’t heard of it, I suggest if you are a store you jump on the chance to be involved, you can find the application for that HERE.

Also don’t forget you have Collabor88 going on, as well as FaMESHed‘s 1st Birthday celebration. That is a lot of great stuff to see and do. Today though my post is about items not at events. The other day I was looking at my UnBra skins folder and was wondering what had happened to that store, well sure enough if you think hard enough, things happen. The creator of UnBra skins has released two ( only one shown today) new skins, and not only do they have great make ups, and cleavage options etc, but they are all compatible with Tangos and also Slink avatar enhanced hands and feet appliers are available. So with a new release comes big things…

Happy Birthday FaMESHed and a Tinting Lesson

LaLa

Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, Happy Birthday to Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu , Happy Birrrthday Dear FaMESSSSSHHHHHHHHEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD, Haaaaaapppyyyy Birthdayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy To Yoooooooooooooou. Ok seriously I really did sing it, to make sure I knew where to elongate and stuff. It has definitely been a year to celebrate, as FaMESHed has grown into one of the biggest monthly event on the grid, and congratulations to Cracked Mirror, all that have been part of it, from the beginning and to the current organisers and everyone else involved.

Before I go on about the delights that are part of the FaMESHed celebrations, lets talk shoes for a moment. Mon Tissu has released the NEW Daley T-Strap Heels, and they are a cute mix of in the now fashion wise, with a definite retro influence. They come in some solid and a great selection of two tone colours, which mean you will have lots of fun creating looks to go with them. These are their first feet in shoes style, and I wanted to do this tinting guideline a month ago, but then things got way busy so it was put off, but timing has its moments, and this works out well.

Tinting feet/hands/boobs, that have a join that is not covered with a strap, or some other kind of styling item, often come with BLENDER SOCKS or BLENDER GLOVES….now these items are ever so useful, because the idea is that you match them to your mesh/sculpt items and they transtion into the skin. Now the thing is that often people try to match their attachments first, and then tint the layers to match, that works too, but I find it much easier the opposite way, and you may too.

* Wear Blender sock or glove closest to your tone, or lighter than ( they are usually numbered or named to correspond with preset tones on the HUDs of that item) 

* Go into edit clothing on the item, you can right click in your inventory and choose edit that way.

* Open the tint option and click on the colour editing rainbow with your mouse…rule of thumb is that most skin tones live on the left side, so there is no reason to go anywhere else unless wearing a fantasy skin. 

* Keep trying to find the tone and use the darker and lighter slider if you need to, until your BLENDER layer blends with your skin.

* Once you have the match, look at either the RGB numbers on the HSL numbers on the left side of the tinting pop up, and copy them down, either on a piece of paper :O or type them down. 

* SAVE by Clicking OK and then Save to get out of editing mode on your layers.

* One your HUD you will see either RGB or HSL buttons, or depending on your HUD type, it might have a chat command. In the case of these shoes it has both HSL and RGB. You can toggle between. 

* Make sure you click on the same preset as the colour of BLENDER you used.

* Then using the numbers you wrote/typed down, input those using buttons or chat. 

Voila, you should be matched (this will always depend on what kind of windlight you are using, and also can depend on having atmospheric shaders turned on for the best results. But this is how you use the blender socks/gloves to your advantage )

An Aria

Aria 1

Aria 3

Aria 2

League has been working on this NEW skin for the past few months. I did get a sneak peak a month or so ago and have been waiting excitedly for its release ever since. The full release is not going to be this week, but a partial “Special Edition” preview will be, and the skin is just marvelous. There is often a collective sigh when it comes to good black skins being more available on the grid, and there are mixed reactions when they are made available, it is a hard thing to get right, so many steer clear of them. Thankfully League hasn’t. Aria comes in three tones, and has the cleavage layers, nail covers, hairbases, including an afro version base – shown in the first pic. I can see this skin not only being great for girls that have been looking for a good black skin, as well as designers who want to add a little diversity to their vendor ads. There is an Aria shape, but I went with mine, so that you can see how it works on features you are familiar with…definitely take her for a spin yourself, because she is beautiful. The new tones will also have appliers available to purchase for SLink hands and feet, as well as lolas, so look for those in the appliers section when the release is announced….

Izzies Avatar Enhanced Nails - Metalic @ My Attic

Lacuna is a new store, and their second release is part of this session of My Attic @ The Deck. The Diametric skirts are pure bliss, not only to wear, but to look at, they elongate the body, and the texturing and colours used are superb. The bandeau tops that are included as a special My Attic option, come in the two colours used in the skirt, so its an incredible Must Have item. The changing of tops can completely change the mood of each look, and I love the resort wear simplicity of the whole look. It also gave me a chance to show off the new skin Nina by LoOmi, not exactly new new this week, but one of the latest releases by the brand, and I not only love the body, and sexy as tummy…but the face is a joy.
