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!

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.

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).

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Buzzeri
On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a little find I found along my random travels this past weekend. Buzzeri has a whole discount floor on their store, and they have all sorts of fab stuff. I am not totally sure why these  Mysteria Eyes got exiled there, but grab some up before they disappear.

They are priced at L$70 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

Thinking in the Dark

1
Soul lost in thought of centuries past
Mourning family and loved ones long gone
Inescapable bitterness of immortality
Kingdoms rise and fall, man toils on
Generation by generation
To what end? A purpose defined by mortal confines
Escapes the grasp of a timeless mind
Thinking weakened by bloodlust
The delicate balancing act of sanity

Fantasy Faire 2015 – Dancing with Butterflies

Dance with me, in the soft light.
Play with me, come take flight.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Dancing with Butterflies - 2

I am not often a petite anymore. There was a time when I was tiny, more than half my week. I made a lot of content for these wee creatures, and still continue to do so, to a point.

Fantasy Faire always has a plethora of items for the petites, and this year is no different. I dug in, dusted off my little wings, and created an outfit for you all to enjoy.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Dancing with Butterflies - 3
Fallen Gods created a special skin for Relay for Life, every Fantasy Faire, this year bringing forth a creature from the deep. The watery designs on the face are rather beautiful, reminding me more of dew on a spiderweb, but keeping to that essence of those that live under the waves. Meet
