Skin Fair 2016 – Tuli

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Skin Fair - Tuli

Tuli has a new line of skins out right now, called Iris, at Skin Fair. I was so excited to see the line, because at last year’s kin Fair, Tuli brought back her darker tones, and she seems to be sticking with it, so far. There was a good number of years when the darker tones were missing, so I have been snatching up whatever I can while she has the new ones out.

I am currently wearing Tone 7 of Iris, with no enhancements. The package comes with all sorts of things, such as lipsticks, gloss, eyeshadows, eyebrows, cleavage, shapes, as well as appliers. I feel very different in this skin, and I like it.

Some of us still prefer to have our own personal look, and not have the face of a million. While mesh heads are lovely, there isn’t as many options for us males of Second Life.

A way to get around this, but keep current to the SL trends, it to wear mesh parts, which allow for the customization of the default male head.

Soul helps us with this, with their line of mesh mouths. The Kissers have a strong following with the ladies of the grid, but until recently, not as many males. This was due to lack of options, but never fear, Soul has heard your pleas, and have a bunch of new Kissers options at the current round of We ❤ Roleplay.

I am wearing the Eros Vampire Kisser. There is also an Orc and Open Mouth Kissers(sold individually) at the event. The Kissers recently had a huge update, with many changes to their system. They are now functioning fully on the Omega Script System, as well as accent layers in the hud, which allow you to add additional elements to your Kisser. There are many more little features to this update, so please read about it all HERE, on the Official Site.

Now, I normally don’t doctor my photos, I try to take the best inworld shots I can, and this has worked for me for many years. Today I did do a bit of playing, and I need to talk about it. You can see this wonderful tattoo on my face. It is from Fallen Gods Inc, and is called Hades.

Now here is the thing, while it does have the Omega Applier, I don’t think it was meant to work with the Kissers. I couldn’t get it to work, it might be that the applier is only meant for the torso, or mesh heads that have a tattoo layer. I have to admit to not using the Omega system all that often, so I could have bungled it up.

I really wanted to wear the tattoo with this outfit, for these shots, so I doctored in the missing lines, over my Kissers mouth. You can see in the first shot, I did not do any doctoring, so there is a whole section to the tattoo missing. I just didn’t want to do any false advertising. So both products work wonderfully, just not how I have styled them. The most likely cause of this is that the newest update to the Kissers has it’s own Omega Supported System, which people have to pick up a creators kit for. So the Kissers, though they use Omega, still are a little different than the general Omega scripts.

The Tattoo comes with Default Avatar Tattoo Layers, TMP, Slink and Omega Applier.

Priced at L$75 per pair for the duration of Genre. Since it is a discount event, you can be sure these will be going up incrementally once they return to the mainstore. Better to grab them now. There are System and Mesh included in each pack.

I really liked this outfit, and had some time while leisurely eating lunch, so I thought I would post it up. Sometimes it is nice not shooting on location. I think I took 2 minutes to get about 10 shots, crop and put into my blogging template.

Uncomplicated things are a bonus for me today.

PixyStix is going through a rebrand right now, turning their store into simply Stix. They are going to be handling their Event Items a bit differently as well, to make the items more special. You are only going to have 2 weeks after events, to pick up items, before they get retired. This in a sense makes all event items made for Stix, Limited Edition.

The direction of the brand seems to be changing a bit too. I like the new ad look, I just hope she keeps with alternative tones along with the regular skin tones. The new looks seems very mainstream, which I don’t say as a bad thing, I just hope the store stays the store I love.

Check out the new Stix ads HERE.

I am wearing this rather pointy makeup, from Stix, which is out at The Makeover Room. It ends August 26th, so you might want to pop on over. There is more to the makeup series there as well, so check out that link above to see the rest of the offers.

Another thing ending very soon is The Thrift Shop, with the 29th being the last day. I have this fun tank from Paper Moon. It has a wack of colours, there are 4 Hud sets to choose from, and it is half off until the end of the event. While this shirt is totally new and discounted, there are some other Paper Moon items here as well, at a discounted rate.

Repost – Seraseeya, Watcher of the River of Souls

Helena Stringer - IOF - Seraseeya - 2

Seraseeya was an unusual creature. With a foot in both worlds, she was neither human, nor fully a beast. Her mother was a harpy who had the unfortunate accident of picking a human male as a mate. We wont go into details, but the result was Seraseeya, and her 3 other sisters.

Things were not too bad to start. The Harpy Broodmothers could tell there was something a bit different about them, they had funny feet and they lacked claws on their hands. There was not a feather on their head, nor much hair to speak of.  They let them be, thinking they would grow into their features.

As the years passed, it became apparent that there was indeed something wrong, they looked more human, than harpy. This would not do.

Late one night, a group of Broodmothers crept up on Seraseeya’s family nest. Before her mother could so much as shriek, 2 of Seraseeya’s siblings were murdered. Seraseeya, who just happened to be the strongest of the brood, took her remaining sister, and fled, fumbling in the sky, with the extra load of her whimpering sister. She could hear her mother below, blood raged, poring her loss into the fight for their lives.

She flew as far as she could, until she could take no more, hoping that the night would hide them well enough, if anyone trolled the skies nearby.

Come morning, taking in her surroundings, she noticed her sister nearly in the river, legs anchored ashore, and wings limp on the surface.

Rushing over, grabbing her sister, she could feel the cold of her body, the start of the stiffness. The world goes dark, the colour leaches, and the waters calm. As she cries with her last remaining sister in her arms, she notices the now thick mist, and a strange noise.

Something solid parts the mist, from the river. Not willing to giver her sister up to whatever may come, Seraseeya slowly backed up the shore, stopping once both she and her sister’s body were fully planted on the firm ground.

The shape got bigger, looking rather tall, though round, at the bottom. At least it didn’t appear to have wings. She waited. It got closer.

It turns out to be a boat, with the most curious of creatures she had seen yet, in her short span of life. She knows there are others out there, humanoids like the harpies, as well as ones more beastly. This one looked to be of the humanoid sort, though it’s bones looked like they were on the outside of it’s skin. It’s eyes glowed, almost with a heat that sent wisps wafting with the movement of the boat.

The boat moored on the bank, and the creature continued to look at her. At last it chose to speak.

“You see me”, it stated in a male voice.

“Yes, I see you.”

“This is not to be. No one sees me, unless it is their time to cross the River of Souls.”

She then felt a movement, of the body she held. Her sister, sluggish, twitched and slowly got up.

“You, you are who I am here for. Your mother fought bravely to keep you in this world, but alas, the cut you received last night was of the most potent of poisons. Your breath on this world is done, and it is time to meet your fate in the next phase of your being. Come now, get in the boat. I will reunite you with your fellow fallen. You, the other, you still have blood pumping in your veins, yet you see me?”

Seraseeya nods, unsure of her own voice at this point.

“You may come along as well, I will let it pass, as it my leave. I will take you to Hades, he will know what to do with you.”

The Ferryman held out his hand, taking first her sister, then herself, onto the boat.

That was just the beginning, of the story, of Seraseeya, the Watcher of the River of Souls.
