Monday Eyeful – Madame Noir

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Madame Noir

This week on Monday Eyeful,I am showing you a discounted eye pack, that was out over the weekend for the Manly Weekend Sales Group. When I went to grab my slurl for the store, it was still discounted, as of this post, so might be worth it to hurry over to nab it.

While I might not be a male, I do have to dress up as one for ads, and yes go both ways, you really can’t make an eye that strictly looks manly. I always check the list for that reason. I’ve picked up a few packs from this store so far, from Manly Weekend.

The current offering from Madame Noir is called Moncho Eyes.

They are priced at L$50 currently for a pack of 13 colourations. These are discounted, and the rest of the eye packs in the shop are L$350, so I would assume these will be as well in the very near future. Unrigged Mesh, Catwa, Genus and Lelutka appliers are included in the pack.

Madame Noir - Moncho Eyes

Grab this awesome deal while you still can! Also, keep a look out for other Manly Weekends, it is a great place to score eyes, backdrops and buildings.

Ritual(formerly Lumae), has been doing L$75 Duo packs of skins for only the weekend. 3 have happend so far, so I can only think more will come. Today I am wearing the Elysa tone. I feel it works well with the new budget head I bought from Dream. Got to work on my face shape a bit more, but I am fairly happy.

Hair Fair 2016 – Lightbloom

Lightbloom

My Daughter wanted me to be a Fairly Princess Ballerina today. I don’t always have the time to give in to her wanting to use my avatar as a personal barbie doll, but I found a wee bit of time today. I knew just the perfect outfit in my inventory, that would suit what I figured her aim was. While it might not be pink, haha, she was ultimately thrilled with all the goodies in the outfit pack. I never let her actually take over my avi, she is far too young, but she sits as close to me as she can, and oversees the whole outfit creation. This is a bit more tame, compared to others she has created, which suits me fine. If she had her way, I’d always be in pink, bows and ruffles. There would never be a spot of blood on my digital person again. The Horror!

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Lightbloom

I have always worn my own hair creations, ever since I decided that a Hair Designer was what I wanted to be. That being said, I don’t normally blatantly hawk my creations. They are simply worn and credited. Sometimes I will write a funny store story, but I don’t go “Oh, I made this, go buy it.”

So here we go . . .

Oh, I made this totally awesome hair, go buy it!

Haha, I am only saying it because it is one of the 5 styles I have created for Hair Fair, a yearly charity event, that I have participated in since the beginning of my store. A portion of every style goes to Wigs for Kids. That isn’t just my own styles, but every style that is on the 4 sims we hair designers are populating this year. There are also the traditional bandanas, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. I have 5 of those at the event as well.

Onylarra-Main-

I thought I’d add this hear, since this is one of the few posts I didn’t do a headshot. This set was released for Enchantment in May, and I did already blog it on my other blog, Free*Style, but it fit today’s theme perfectly, and the girl oooo’d and aaaaaah”d over them. She had much fun with the colour change huds. She always likes the Plastik items, cause they have a bagillion options(tho she still only ever picks pink, usually).

Growing Temptation

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Growing Temptation - 1

It is funny how your avatar will evolve, and it feels like it is sudden, when you notice it. I use to collect bumble bee things and panda things, and run around the grid wearing all this super cutesie stuff. I am aware I haven’t worn any of that for a long time now, but I did notice today that I delve more into the fantasy side of things, lately. I did a good stint of urban wear for a good number of years, and while I still wear that for my daily sl tasks, it seems like I am blogging more fanciful things.

Not that I mind in the least. I love trying to make it work with my avatar, and showing others in the ethnic community that it is doable.

I want to talk about all the things I am wearing, but that doesn’t make for a fun post. I will let you know that this snake is animated, and it’s tail coils around you back and to the side.You can find him in a gacha at the new round of Fair Play.

Banana Banshee has new items, it’s owner back from the realms of the real, where she was attending to her newborn. It is great to see the new creations. These new eyes are so darn striking, and I love that they offer the dark alongside the light versions, for the Sclera.

The tiara is from Noble Creations, and is mod, so I totally modded it to suit my needs. This is what the original looks like:

Monday Eyeful – Nelly Eyes by Arise

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Arise

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a discounted event pack from the Buy Now sale. Arise is taking part in this new project, for how much longer Buy Now will be around, I am not sure. There is currently some drama going on in the designer/event organizer realm of the event. I am not sure how many more round there will be. For now, you can visit the event in a very simple fashion, all you do is visit SL Marketplace, then type in “Buy Now” in search. All the participants will pop up(along with some other random stuff).

The current offering from Arise are called Nelly Eyes.

They are priced L$119 for a pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, as the normal eyes in the shop normally range from L$59 to L$89 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

.ARISE. Nelly Eyes for BUY NOW

Get this awesome deal while you still can, new round starts June 1st.

Adoness is at the current round of Thrift Shop, which ends tonight. I already blogged the wonderful discount dresses on Free*Style, but as with all Thrift Shops, there is a whole slew of Gachas. My necklace is just one of Adoness’ gacha items. This Gacha in particular comes with these necklaces, with various gems, but also has a forehead adornment that matches, which you can also win.

I’m also wearing a few things from Plastik. They always seem to be in all the things, haha. You will find the new Trellion earrings at N21, as part of a jewelry set, which you can pick up in one of 5 metals.

You will find my horns at the Fantasy Collective. They come in a few sizes, and are fully hudded, so you can switch to match any outfit.

Dragon Warrior

Oh, that Helli, she could drive someone to madness. I sincerely hope you all will enjoy her.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Dragon Warrior - 1

I wasn’t able to participate in the latest round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival, I will hopefully be back in it in August, timeline wise it will work out. That being said, it is still one of my favorite events to both participate in, and go shopping at.

This latest round was themed Scales, Feathers and something else(totally forget but it might have been pearls). Noble Creations made this really nifty female armour set. I feel so shiny in it.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Dragon Warrior - 2

I think even a warrior princess deserves to have a little bit of bling, so I put on these metal encased orb earrings. They sort of remind me of this incense thing I own, that hands on a planter hook. It has the glass sides, that are all colour stained. These earrings are much like that, and you can even adjust the level of transparency to the glass. Each metal type is sold separately, but they do come with a full hud for different options for the glass orbs. You will find these at We Love Roleplay, which is great for you, cause it means they ate at a discount until the end of the month.

Skinful Sundays – Elistrae Skins by Plastik

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Skinful Sundays - Plastik 1

I wear so many alternatively toned skins, and get constantly asked what I am wearing, either by people bumping into me or visitors at the store. I thought it might be nice to start featuring some of the places I collect my crayola coloured skins from, as they aren’t always the easiest things to find.

First up are the new Elistrae Skins from Plastik. These were newly released at Skin Fair last month, I just didn’t manage to roll out this feature while the event was open. You can now find these at the Plastik Mainstore.

Plastik has a buttload of appliers, like there are so many. If you end up not being able to use these skins with your mesh parts, I would be super surprised. The one thing that draws me in is that they still support Genesis Labs, which many designers have stopped creating for. While I do have a Logo mesh head now, I still am drawn to the Genesis Lab heads the most, so any designer that still makes appliers for them is bound to stay in my top 10 for skin makers.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Skinful Sundays - Plastik 2

Another great feature of the skins is that you can have glitter on your butt. How many skins in recent years have you seen with glitter on the butt?

Female Previewer

The Skins make me think of a cross between Fantasy Space Alien and Drow. There are many tones to choose from, which makes it super hard to pick just ones. Zesstra is probably my favorite, if I was forced to choose just one.

Future Self

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Future Self

What would you look like, in the future, in a galaxy far far away?

Soul has released head tendrils as their new offering at We Love Roleplay for April. They come hudded for all the current Soul Skinlines for perfect matching, but they work with Omega Appliers as well, so any skins you own with those should work.

They have nifty glowy patterns, which can be tinted to any colour of your choosing by using the hud.

I decided to wear my new dress from !Chop Shop!, which is a little racy, so I threw on a corset underneath. There are a bunch of colours in the shop, I liked this green one and the gold version the most.

The little glowy stars are from Cole’s Corner. If ever you want a simple way to dress up an outfit, throwing on some particles will do that for you. They aren’t obnoxious, and they give you an extra something something.

Monday Eyeful – Venus Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - S0NG

This week on Monday Eyeful, I visited the Hantai Fair, because come on, TENTACLES!!! There are so many, I was in my glory. Also, there happens to be a large amount of eyes up for grabs at the fair, which always makes me come running. S0NG is there with new eyes, and they still have me guessing as to why they are named what they are. They sort of look like they have snow, not sparkles, but snow, falling inside them. Like a little storm trapped in your eye. I always have such a hard time choosing what colour I want(and often go back for more month later, haha).

These are called called Venus, and have a good mix of colours to choose from.

They are priced L$50 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Stix has some Limited Editions in their store right now. Hera is the base skinline, in a wonderful goth makeup. There are 4 tones to choose from. I am wearing the Drow tone, but my second favorite is the Snow. Stix always comes with all the appliers possible, I would really be surprised if you can’t make it work for your own mesh collection.

Grab your favorite while you can, they are only L$99 per tone!

Monday Eyeful – Realistic Eyes by Angelica

***Update – Fantasy Cream has been extended for a week. It no longer ends on Sept. 30th. Enjoy the Extended Shopping!***

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I slipped on down to The Dressing Room, as soon as I saw these eyes. In my everyday, I normally have more unnatural eyes, but I do have a need for realistic ones from time to time, and these ones look beautiful.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was getting multiple eyes in one pack, rather than just a single.

They are priced L$70 for a pack of 5. You get the whole strip going down. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

Additionally, I am wearing the new outfit from Jinx’s Fantasy line, called Hosten Fae, which is a new exclusive for Fantasy Cream. The event ends on Spet. 30th, so hurry on quick and pop in. There is a little hunt going on as well, and you can pick up a very cute leaf typer, which matches this outfit.

Dragon Born

Dayal Navarathna - Pixel Mythos - Dragon Blood - 1
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.

Dayal Navarathna - Pixel Mythos - Dragon Blood - 2
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.
