Flair set 86

Koreshan Fair

Cosmetics Fair is only a few more days, it packs up the same time as My Attic, but straight after that is another NEW and big event. Koreshan Hillbilly Howdown & Country Fair is going to be a fun and exciting event put on by a sim that is pretty famous for having had great events in the past years. I am glad they are doing something again now, and really looking forward to finding out, who and what is going to take place. The sign as you see, says that there will be a lot of attractions, so mark your calendars for Monday when it launches. That in itself is exciting, as events usually start on the weekend, what a great and fun way to chase the monday blues away.

Back to My Attic and Cosmetics Fair though, the Make Up I have on today is by Chelle and Glamorize. The eyeshadow is part of the Moon Dust collection they released for the event, and I love that it really does have a dusty shadow look to it. I love the red, and should have probably not worn a full bangs hairstyle, but you can check it out in person yourself at the fair. I am also wearing the eyelashes on tattoo layers that were also released, I don’t usually go with tatoo lashes as I wear mesh ones, but I liked the combination of both. The lipstick I have on is from Glamorize, and I like the black lipstick look, especially with this outfit.

I was all over the place yesterday. First off on a completely different side note, Daniel Voyager has started a NEW Group to help New Residents when they join Second Life. The Group is called Resident Greeters, so if you have interest in helping in this way, then please contact him to be added to the group. I have often gone to Help Islands over the years and tried to help out, but it is definitely exciting to be part of a group of like minded Residents that want to help New Residents adapt to Second Life and help them understand that what they have joined is something amazing.

Then after I got all that sorted out after logging in and finding the group invite way down the bottom of my popup things – has anyone else noticed that group invites are never at the top they seem to randomly slot in there, so if you do think you didn’t get it, and yet have 47 notices archived, check all of them, you may find it is there just hiding. Whimsy and did some more work on our latest collaboration build, we are excited to be part of the upcoming Crush on You Juicy event at the Malt Sim from the 10th of Feb to the 18th…it is shaping up to be so adorable which may or may not be biased, but I love it.

Awhile ago Mel and I were at Mesmerize doing some updating to my ballet boots, and the store was packed to the rafters. The amazing thing though, was that nearly every single girl there –  and I am not even exaggerating – was wearing the same dress.

I looked closer, and not exactly the same as in all wearing the same options, but as the dress has so many different ones, they were all wearing different variations, some of course had on the same parts, but mostly in different colour combinations. What was even more amazing was it was MESH, and yet I didn’t know about it, and as this was actually when there was only a few MESH items released, and we certainly were able to keep track. But this one, nope, never seen it before. I IM’d one of the women there, and she was kind enough to give me the details, three letters and I was off, because it was a store I have other items from including ballet boots.

What also amazed me, and this is truly something that more MESH creators have to look at doing, is that the pieces are seamless. They join together so well, that you would actually think this was one piece, but it is most definitely a skirt and a top piece worn together. I even had Whimsy come down and tell me where it joined together, and she couldn’t because even with default light settings, you cannot see it. I would love to see more designers do this kind of work, where you can mix and match within an outfit, it would be incredible, and imagine high-waisted mesh pants, that can also be worn as regular pants, or long legged and 3/4, it would be heaven.

A beautiful NEW Skin to the ever expanding Gala skin line is Pin-Up, and as the name suggests it is all pouty lips and starlet styled make up that will have you panting, or possibly your partner will be.

Slippery.....

To start off the huge post of Pin Up Skins by Gala, I am wearing Pin Up from Stellar * Waves to Lexi* . The pieces to this set are extremely sexy and great fun. You can opt for with or without the flexi addition to the strapless top, that is tightly laced at the front, highlighting the beautiful shading of the skins. The mini flexi skirt is a staple in any Stellar fans wardrobe and the print on this one is fab. The bangle is also included in the set, and if you are a red/black combo fan I am sure it will be worn alot.

All of the main pics in this post are featuring the Sundust tone in the Pin Up Skins by Gala, the tone is just gorgeous as are all of them, but I spent the day in the SL sun today so it was appropriate ;), but when I took all the tones pics further down I wanted to do another 50 pics, but I spared you :P. As before all the tones come in both a dark and light version, I am wearing the dark option and this is the Starlet 1 make up. I have to say that during this shoot, I kept having a Taylor from B&B kind of thought process with these skins, and hey to look one pixel like that woman would make me very very happy indeed.

What I really like in these is the obvious lightness to the face, in such a way as to really show that you are in fact wearing make up, that there is all over coverage going on.

The bodies of these skins are just as the last release, so beautifully shaded and the stomach is just gorgeous. The hair I am wearing, and yes again I am doing Hair all by the same store, I don’t want you wearing yourself out running all over the place 😛 , oh wait you will for clothes anyway lol. The hair is from Magika and is the Lucy style with an adorable bow at the top, slightly alluding to innocence until you travel further down the body.

Slippery

Ok so by now I know you are going OMG WHERE ARE THOSE BOOTS FROM ?, I know right. They are my new hotness bought for me by my Main Hotness Mel. These are the XPosed Boots by Fussy and these boots are all that and a bag of chips. A triple MUST MUST MUST HAVE!. They are sculpted toes and heel, with a hud that allows for skin change and nailpolish changes, these boots are sooo Sexy and I am dieing for them to come in more colours, and possibly leather options not only patent/latex…not that I have any issues wearing this kind of texture lol as you can see they fit into my wardrobe very smoothly, but PLEEEEEEEASE make me some more more more Satomi pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. Oh and I didnt meantion BOWS on the back lol , these are so yummy I couldn’t take them off.

Also wearing the Solid Black Raincoat from Elixir, these coats in the past I have shown in the sheer latex version, I am really liking the solids as they allow for more mixing up with other items. The Slung Mini skirt is also from Elixir and is an older style that is really sexy and I really like the innovative way that Elixir have created this skirt to look a particular way, and also to work with the way prims work in SL.

A New style from Magika is the Buns hair, really nice large buns, two of them at the back of the head with thick bangs sideswept at the front. This is the Jitterbug 1 Make Up from Gala in the Pin Up skin, and the red in these lips is smashing.
Slippery.
One of my favourite older items from Bare Rose is this Basket. A long time friend Luve had this easter of 2007 and we ran right over and got me one, we also went there in bunny avatars and acted crazy for a few hours lol. I ran into June yesterday and she assures me that it is still there, and even though it was created with easter in mind it is just so very Goth Lolita looking, and the skully black eggs, I mean hello stink bombs lol.

The beautiful Dress is the Julia dress by Popfuzz Bamboo and it really is lovely, the dress comes in a huge assortment of colours, as do many Popfuzz creations, strapless with a light spray of floral embelishment across the top of the dress gives it that little extra in this tube style I adore for SL, no chance of it falling down.

More beautiful embelishments are in the form of the Tiana Necklace and Earrings from DeLa, these are so delicate and beautiful. They come in various colours but also with silver and gold options available. The new releases coming out of DeLa lately are really stepping up into a new level as Kura has been creating with new software and has been spending hours per day learning her new methods, and to me it is well worth the sacrifice of time in world.

The Apple Pie Make up from Gala Pin Up is another brilliant red lipstick option, one release with this many red lippy variations is just fantastic. The hair is the Olga style, another New release from Magika, I am loving the tamer styles coming from there lately, with the cute pins on the sides, Magika is giving their customers an all situations hair range.

Slippery....

The other week we had another one of our, ‘Fia needs to shop” days that ended with all of the girls spending money lol, how he puts up with us I don’t know…oh wait I mean me :P. Actually now that I look at it closer this pic has Fia all over it, starting with the I Bite Belt from Miau Haus, we went there back in Aug 2006 and bought this belt, I loved it then so much and still do.

The Bloomers I am wearing are from Scribble, these come in different colours highlighting the black bloomers, but these are the black/black pair and they are puffy and cute as in a more modern way than previous bloomers I have shown. This post kind of made me realise that there are Pin Ups from all sorts of genres, I mean a Pin Up is really just someone you admire and find attractive, whether you are Male/Female, Punk, Goth, Neko, Furry or a fish its about that appeal and attraction.

The bikini top is from Elixir and is their latex bikini which comes on all layers and is very handy to have. The Aggression ArmBands are from Digital Dragon Designs and are wickedly cool and actually match some other boots I have from there. The other fantastic accessories I have are the Open Handcuffs Necklace and lipring by Sable Rose, the lipring I have been wearing on and off for days it is so cool, and actually from a distance looks like vamp teeth lol. Incredible work is coming from Sable Rose lately and more wonderful creations to come.

An old set of Ink from TRUTH is the Betty tat, I am not sure if this is still in the main store but even if it isn’t its a great indicator of the types of tats Truth does, also this is on not only different layers but different options, such as arms only, back only, back and arms etc. The hair is Acceptable by Magika and the Gala PinUp make up is the Pure 2 which is a bare make up and so cool to have that option with Skins like this.

The bag that we ended up getting that shopping day is the BLACK CAT BACKPACK SMALL “Nekovampi Pet” by NekoVampi this bag is too cute, and if you click on it the cat meows scarily lol. There are three sizes in the bags that you get and the price is fab. I have been wearing this one and off for a few weeks and it is lots of fun.
Slippery..

This next dress is from SySy , a classic black dress with a beautiful large turleneck look. To give it a bit more purrr I have added the Wild Animal Print Belt, Earrings and Bangle from Dark Mouse. I have shown the Zebra before in these and they are just as fabulous in the Tiger stripe Copper, the style of jewelry and the belt are just fabulous for this look or any pants/shirt combo.

The hair in this pic is Root Bear and for some obscure reason I keep thinking it’s called Sea Gull, don’t ask me why because I don’t know lol.

The Pull Col dress is a great little number for casual to dressy looks, it does come in a variety of deep colours , but the black was so working with the accessories I couldn’t resist.

Slippery...

Yay for YaYa , this dress is fabulous and again by SySy. The colours and the shape of the dress is so fun and carefree. I love the vibrant and rich colours in the prints on these dresses, by far my favourite has to be the firey coloured one in the centre. All of them are swish loving fun, you know you do it in your head when you find that kind of dress, I cannot be the only one that makes random swishing noises to myself

The fabulous hair is Riddle b y Magika which is a great tails style with full and fluffed out tails. Again one of the Bare Make Up options in the Pin Up skins by Gala is the Cats Pyjamas 2, lippy or not the mouths on these skins is hot hot hot.

Slippery.......
Slippery......

These are all of the tones in the Pin Up skins by Gala, the body detailing is scrumptious and the tones themselves are just heavenly. In the frontal pic I am wearing the Dark option of each tone, and in the back view picture I am wearing the light. The difference is not a lot but just enough to make that transition you need on occasion depending on mood and weather.

I am wearing the Luna Di Miele Lingerie by DP Serendipity, this is their first lingerie line and it is really lovely. The fabric is a velvet look with lace trim and detailing, I especially love the scalloped edged elastic look to the trim of the panties. The thong is beautifully shaped at the back to accentuate the curve of the lower back and hips, a fantastic first lingerie style.

I decided to show Olga in more colours as its such a pretty hair by Magika :).

All of the Shooting Poses used today are from Persona YAY Mylie Writer is back from taking a break and has brought with her some fantastic poses. These are fabulous for showing all sorts of items, especially the Fussy Xposed boots YUM YUM YUM couldn’t wait to finish typing had to tp Newdoll over to grab some in the laced up and buckled version that I swear was not there two days ago I swearrrrr.

I recently swung by Elixir and noticed that there was lots of New lovelies, as well as a much easier to navigate store layout, the older one was much smaller. I really like the way they have layed it out this time, as well as admiring the new arty pics that show off the items in such a way that vendors sometimes miss out on doing.
Elixir
Elixir 2
This first Dress is the Solid Mini Dress, which is available in a slew of vivid colours and stunning latex shading. The style is sleeveless high collared, and the length is barely there, thank goodness for the addition of some thong panties or there would be all sorts of complications.

The shading or highlighting possibly on this latex is wonderful, especially at the lower front showing that it is as tight as can be and only prayers and possibly spray adesive are keeping it from sliding up the body.

I am wearing with them the fantastic Yoke from VR Foundry that has so many features, that can be used just as decoration/accesory like I am, or more to the way its intended, you can find the features on the vendor pic and info notecard at the store, but it is RL compatible and has the evilest features I have ever come across when it comes to locking.

The hair I have on is the Hayden style from Goldie Locks, a fun fanned out style that has a realy lovely softness to the flex.

The incredible Ballet Boots that I am wearing are in chrome and from WarDoom Shoes, these boots are amazing and look just like brushed steel, WarDoom has a huge assortment of fetish and regular style shoes and boots, my only upset with these boots is the inability to change the laces colours, but I did notice that other versions of boots do have that option, as these are possibly older, I have already had mine for a few months.

These also have lockable features and what not, so read the vendor to see what fun you can possibly have with them…;).

Elixir 3

Love love love this dress, this is the Mini Driver dress from Elixir…so aptly named as it looks like the pimped up mini’s, but I also have to giggle because of the actress, seriously what were her parents thinking.

Everything about this dress is hot, the length is sexy, the colour combo and the fantastic latex detailing is gorgeous, but the style and those fabulous shoulder pads, just make it a MUST HAVE!… note well too, the front of the cleavage is actually a prim to give it a pulled off of the body look for more realism. It’s just HOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.

The boots I am wearing with it are the Goth buckle boots from J’s buckled fabulousness with laces up the back. The hair is Fab, by name and look, and is from Magika. I really like this style as its so formal looking but can be used casually or for fun as well.

The really cool thingy on the side of this pic is supposed to be a roll of pics, and I didn’t exactly do it as intended but it is so cool and thanks to Zoe Demar for showing the link on one of her Flickr posts…you can find the tutoral and download HERE.
Elixir 4
Khorus of Elixir asked me if I do male items on my blog and as some of you know in the past I have morphed, or worn mens items many times as myself…but as Fiachra is also a fan of Elixir Khorus sent him some of the shorts that are new to the range and Fia then went shopping for more, lol.

He is wearing the Mens Undergear shorts with the underpants as well underneath in some pics that show the white straps. These have a great rubberised wetsuit look to their structure and are great for RP situations. He is also wearing the Latex Tshirt in red, the Rubber Biker Gloves in Red and the White Gauntlets, with the black latex tshirt.

His skin is the Male Cheetah skin from Nomine and his hair is from the Good Life and is called Broder.

Elixir 5
Last up from Elixir we have the Dark Star set, this set has many options for wear as you can see, and again is more of a wetsuit rubber look which is so well done. I really love the high cut of the black full piece as I am sure many will, and the lightning bolt cut out is neat.

The white portions come in both a bikini look and full piece, if you can call it full lol, and has such a depth to the textures that you would swear they were solid protective wear like dirt bike riders wear.

The hair I am wearing is the Lolita style from Magika, which has adorable bows on the tails, and really as cute as it is supposed to look it definitely has a raunchyness to it also.

The fabulous skin I am wearing is the SUZANA-pale 82 from LionSkins, this make up around the eyes is incredible , I don’t have lashes on in the last pic because of the hair and there really isnt even a need for them with such intense liner and detailing. The body on this skin is superb and if you haven’t done Lion Skins demoing yet you really need to.

A Quicky today, it’s only taken me 14 hours to get it to you , what a day.
I went to the Pixeldolls SALE yesterday, and actually haven’t even done the whole room yet, but wanted to share two things that need showing, and are MUST HAVES!.

A while ago Pixeldolls opened a seperate section called Avatar, and I went over as soon as it was opened to check it out, now this was a store were you could buy ready made avatars for 500L, shoes hair, clothes skins and shapes, eyes and in some cases even AO’s.

PIXELDOLLS 50L SALE LOCATION HERE.

There were a few I had my eye on but did the um and ah thing. Well yesterday I realised that they are also part of the incredible 50L SALE, and two I just couldn’t resist are this first one which is Yvaine. I am not wearing the shape that came with, but it is also wonderful. The other thing you cant see in the pic, because it was really too hard to take pics of to cut out, the ingenious use of flexi alpha prims attached to the body with dazzling starbursts sprayed across them, so you look as though you are surrounded by starts, its just beautiful.

The skin is just fantastic in this avatar it is so dreamy, and the hair is adorable.. the outfit I can so see getting worn when not in full Yvaine mode as well, so much for such a great price.

Dolly

This is part of another of the Avatars, this one though I did change more than just the shape. This is Galaxie and whatever your motivati0n for grabbing it, at 50L it’s a steal.

The catsuit is from the set, and it is just fabulous, the texture work on this is amazing, Pixeldolls has fantastic futuristic looking sets like this one, but again for 50L even if you can’t imagine when you would wear it, that’s the thing with our lives here, it could be tomorrow lol.

The set does come with boots, but they are texture boots with prim base heels, so I swapped that out for the fabulous Skai boots from Adam n Eve, these are a fab boot style for this catsuit. Also from Adam n Eve is the marverlous Bliss skin. This is the Red Candy in tone 2, a photosourced/handpainted hybrid style skin, Sachi has been doing a lot more of that mix lately and it is really starting to take her in a new direction as far as flexing her skin muscles is concerned.

Now though a lot of the body is covered for these pics, believe me it has all the attributes that make Adam n Eve skins popular, body shading and details are just fab, and nothing more fun than taking the express elevator to one of the Adam n Eve change rooms and trying them out for yourself. DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The other day Kallisti Burns of Discord Designs mentioned new Braids and me being me did a big ‘MORE LONG BRAIDS” plea. Yesterday to my surprise a New medium to long style of the braids I love was passed to me in my usual colours, and the name is Sasy, thank you so much for both things, the hair is a great mix of braids in a pinned back style allowing for fast paced moving in this stream lined look, I can so see riding a motor bike in this outfit.

Just wanted to share with you two must have 50L items from Pixeldolls. Don’t delay as I am not sure how long the sale is on for.

I should be so Lucky

A while back the lovely Teagan Blackthorne of Savoir Hair put forth a challenge, a literature challenge…as in you needed to dress up like your favourite character from a novel. I wracked my brain and as I am so behind in posting lately it was difficult for me to try and detour away from my to do folder.

I didn’t stop thinking about it though, and yesterday I spent some time with Teagan and asked her straight out, if by literature it had to be ‘great works, not that I am against great works, I grew up in bookstores and restaurants, and my cafe was almost half half. But I really just couldn’t get my head around it. One character kept calling to me though, and I ran it past Teagan and she explained she had never meant for it to be so complicated. That you could even do comic characters if that was your thing.

Well that was my thing growing up, you see I only read comics as a kid, and when sticking their nose in where it doesn’t belong adults would question my mum about it, her response was ‘My Daughter is reading”, I love her so much lol. Then one day I decided it was time to read some books,and *giggles* the first Novel I ever read was Jackie Collins Hollywood Wives… I kid you not, I was 14 and read it in like 2 days. After that one I became a Jackie Collins fan big time, and us having a bookshop didn’t hurt, it was all there, every single book at my disposal.

After Hollywood wives I read Chances and then Lucky, and that is who is my character, the great Lucky Santangelo. She ROCKED!. Now I did go on to many other authors after that, I have read thousands of books from all sorts of writers, and genres..but there is just something about Jackie Collins that will always make her one of my favourites.

Ok I am sure you are wanting to get onto the clothes now lol.

Lucky

One thing about Lucky was that she was a pants woman, and boots. So it was actually this release from Dela that got me thinking about her in the first place. This is the stunning Vivian blouse, it comes in a huge range of colours, and this white one is just wonderful, silky and beautifully crafted, The puffy sleeves and the back part of the shirt – hidden unfortunatly- are all sculpted and give a voluminous effect at the back, its a great way of doing what the template doesn’t allow for naturally.

Lucky Santangelo was a hard working business woman, but she had her own style and this combo is something I could totally see her wearing. The Linda leather pants also from Dela are also made in an assortment of fabulous leather colours, and you get three different leg cuffs with them. Adding the recent release of the Silver and Zebra Jewelry and belt from Dark Mouse I am stylin up a storm.

The jewerly comes in not only Zebra and Silver, even though its GORGEOUS, but also copper/tiger and gold/leopard, they are all as fabulous, and it’s so wonderful to have your jewelry perfectly match your belt.

Now the hair for Lucky look was a no brainer, the Delilah hair from Analog dog is just perfect. Another perfect style would be the Madison, also from Analog Dog but too full near the face for these pics.

Speaking of faces, the Belleza Belle skins were a great choice for this post also, as Lucky has an italian heritage I needed something a bit more tan/olive skinned, and these ones in the tan are just striking. I will go into more with the skin pics at the end.

Lucky 2
One humorous part of the Lucky series of books, was the fact that she hated wearing dresses and skirts, but at times was forced into it by her dad. If that was going to happen though, it was going to happen HER way. So again to Dela and this ensemble would totally be in keeping with HER way.

This is the Marni crop jacket and Marni skirt, I have tinted the belt slightly in this one as it was a beautiful bronze colour, but didn’t go with my plan. The fabric in these just like the Vivian blouse are a beautiful silk, and the way they sit is just magnificent. I added the Gauze beach tank from Lala Foofoo just for a bit of her own casual thrown in.

The boots are the High Ride’s from Adam n Eve, the semi biker style boot is total Lucky, keeping her edge even though probably having to go to some fancy schmancy event. Seriously I could put together looks for her all day, I am so glad I asked Teagan if any book or written works character was allowed.

Lucky 3
Now as the Lucky books all centered around hotels and Las Vegas, there was lots of pool side conversations, this is the Wicked Bikini by VR Foundry, its a high maintenance bikini with a sporty yet sexy look. By highmaintenance I mean you need to be aware that it is sheer 😛 but if you are shy like me you wear both layers for more coverage. This swimsuit always makes me think of James Bond, and things like windsurfing and jetski’s.

The skin tones worn in this pic are the tan and the sunkissed, so you can see the two different tones to compare, they both have really beautiful shading and that bum, wow. one of my favourite parts though has to be the heel and back of the ankle, I don’t know why, but it just looks really smooth and detailed. The tummy is nicely shaded and the cleavage is just delish.

Now what makes me very happy, as you know is that the skin comes in both shaved and not shaved versions, meaning that regardless of your inventory you will always have a suitable skin, no matter how low a designer takes their clothing. With these pics I am wearing the Tesa hair from Analog Dog, but it is a freebie at Savoir Hair’s location at Hair Spray , YAY Free hair.

( You can click the pics for bigger versions ) One of the other really nice features to the Belleza Belle skins is the brows, they actually look plucked but in a really good way, I mean if you have dark brows there are chances that a few hairs are going to stray, so these look really neat and not overdone at all. I have no concern about darker brows with skins, even if I am wearing blonde hair in world I don’t care too much as it’s obviously not my natural colour :P.

Another favourite is the mouth, that mouth is very well created, the natural lines to the lips and that minute dip of skin at the base of the top lip gives it such a natural look. Wonderful make up variations are available, some a bit more dramatic than others, but a nice mix over all. Check out the DEMOS as soon as you can, I have only shown a taste of the wonderful range.

I got new poses yesterday thanks to Teagan *shakes fist* lol , they are from a relatively new store called Street Magic, but apparently not new creators, ooooo mystery. They have hair, clothing , jewelry, shoes, and poses in their store, so you should check them out.

A moments silence for OnRez *sniffles*

Guide Me

No idea why I chose Guide Me as a title, but I guess that’s how I feel about our grid, and it’s people.
Anyway I was grabbing from different folders today for this post, and had a lot of fun doing so, hope you like.

So I was wandering around Popfuzz the other week, YAY for their New Main Store, and hadn’t realised that the Fuzzy sim was right next door. I knew Popfuzz owned it but didn’t realise they were connected, so I was wondering around with some friends I tp’d in and came across a PanJen store.
You remember a few weeks back I did a post on some Military coats of hers, well this is another, which also has fantastic Pinstripe pants.

The long trench style Military Coat is warm and woolen in fabric, the prim work is lovely and the double breated buttons and epillettes are fab. You can wear it with or without the long coat bottom, and as I said the pants are just wonderful. They do only come on the pants layer but as they are copy/mod I was able to shorten them and tighten the cuffs to wear with boots.

The Newish Nomad Boots from Dark Eden really fit into this look, with the charcoal like leather and tarnished buckles, the solid heel works for that marching Millitary feel, well it does for me anyway. This outfit makes me pine for the snow I keep hearing my favourite Men whining about each day, Fia says he understands that Snow is a miracle, but he is sick and tired of shoveling the miracle lol.

To accompany the pinstripe look I went with the New hair from Magika called Sneaky, the striped scarf/headband look of this short do is very carefree but stylish all at the same time, it can be casual or a bit dressier dependant on your mood.

Bebae Belina skins are one of the recent releases in the Skins line, and the shine on those lips is fantastic. This is the Cinna Bare-2a and as a bare skin this is just beautiful, that no make up made up look with a rich and glossy mouth is exactly the type of skin you want as your all rounder skin. Torie does such great work on really detailing the face, so that you come out looking fresh and enticing, without having to try too hard.

This next set is from Zenith, awhile ago Cajsa IM’d me and asked me to meet up with a designer friend of hers Miffyhoi, and the funny thing was that I already had a few things from the Zenith store. Miffy was lovely enough to pamper me with lovelies and this set Baggy just called out for some attention.

The set even comes with the cute trainers, the baggy pants are sculpted and fit really well, the addition of the belt with pouchbag is extra fun, but that fur collared vest has to be a fav part for me. One thing that stood out though and needs to taking note of, is that the bra is on the undershirt layer, and the tat is on the shirt layer, a bit odd to do it that way, but if you wear your own favourite tats I am sure you will be able to find your own black bra to wear with the combo, or change it up with a cute tank or shirt.

Adding more Dark Eden with the Lilith Set armbands, to sort of offset the strapped belt I was all set to street dance, lol sorry it’s one of my favourite style of movies, I love all those “I want to be a dancer but I don’t get into the school I want to, so I end up street dancing and then get accepted” kinds of movies. This outfit is totally that look lol.

Ashia and I went to Discord Designs last week and I had seen the Carter style before, but only this time around realised that there was in fact a head covering version. You see the Carter style is a braids hawke, how cool right ? but as much as I am totally never worried about being bald, a hawke in this style just didn’t work for me, but with the head covering version, as in hair styled to look as though the hawke braids are pulled up from long hair rather than shaved its all good, you get both versions in the pack :). There are such fabulous braided styles at Discord Designs you really need to try on all the Demos.

This Belina by Bebae skin is the Cinna: Berry-1b, full berry coloured lips with that marvelous gloss, and the tummy on these skins and all the Bebae skin range is toned well for a fit without muscley look.

While taking the pics of Baggy I was in IM with Miffy of Zenith and she passed me a New set called Victoria, perfect timing as all morning I had in my head that today I was going to show at least one of the Newer colours available in the fantastic Dela Ballet Slippers. I loved when these were released in black and crimson, but the newer colours just add so much fun to looks. The sculpted slippers are just beautiful, the shape of the foot covering, and the really well made ribbon ties around the lower leg give them such authenticity.

The Victoria dress by Zenith is a lovely short corset style with a short flexi skirt that can be perceived as a tutu. A very burlesque look that you could probably dress up a lot more than I have today. The charming neck choker is a rose inlaid with a large pearl, as is part of the set. The dress comes in other colours, but I was all about embracing the purple, so much so that the light Purple in this Gorgeous Gem hair by Magika was a must. This style is soft and flowing and has these delicate gemstones decorating the hair, such a fab look.

This skin by Bebae is the Belina *Cinna: Cat-2a, again such beautiful glossy lips and just look at the cleavage, perfect for a corset style dress like this one. The shading on the Bebae skins is wonderful and one of the best reasons to check out a Demo for yourself. I am using the Long Awkward Pose poses in the pics today, but the middle picture in this one is an animation from Mamesando, that store has the most awesome animations, they are fun and enchanting and you have probably seen many girls lately suddenly bend over and wriggle their bums, that is a classic Mamesando pose lol. They are all adorable and you can spend eons of time checking them and the incredible avatars they have there, thanks to Newdoll for taking me there one night.

Lastly we have the Temptation set from Stellar, Stellar is the rebranding of Stellar Designs by Lexi Morgan who has recently created a new logo and dropped the designs part of her business name. When you branch out into all sorts of creations like Lexi has sometimes a rebrand can help broaden the reach to a wider audience.

The Temptation set is appropriately named, the bra and sheer crop top are definitely enticing, but oo la la on those leather pants, just as well the Bebae skins are low enough on the privates to accomodate – even if not shaved grumble grumble – yes I feel cheated, having been subjected to Torie getting nakey in the middle of a store once while discussing that exact topic and then her releasing a shaved skin to much joy, and now to go back to not I WANT MY INNOCENCE BACK *giggles*. This rich and red lipped skin is the Belina Cinna Smokey 2b, the eyes are fab but again it is all about the mouth, whatever it is that Torie does to get such incredible mouths she needs to never stop.

Now back to the Temptation leather pants, the dipped v front pants come in both pants layer and underpants for a boot fit, and the stitching and the hipster cut are just fantastic, these are definitely a must have.

The Venus boots are also from Stellar as Lexi has branched out into footwear they come to just below the knee for me, but dependant on your height that will vary a bit. They are slouchy and strapped with silver buckle detailing up the height of the boot with matching silver heels.

The last hair shown is again from Magika and is the Mon style, the hat hair is just super, the slouchy beanie is a thick wool style and the two braids are shaped very stylishly for it to fit exteremely well. This style would also look fabulous with the Panjen Military coat shown at the top.
