Venturing into the Sun

I have been away, doing all those thing you must do in the first life, to keep the second one going. It was just a short amount of time, but I couldn’t keep away from the blog much longer. I do enjoy it, it keeps all of the “mes” sane, when work gets too much, or the kids for that matter.

I ventured out into the sun the past weekend. I was fully covered, so the sun didn’t eat me. I wonder if being photosensitive is like the mild irritations older vampires get when they walk in the sun during the day. We got the last bit of sunday afternoon, I think. The warm is well on it’s way now.

Just a modge podge outfit, of randomness. The only thing new is the dress, which you will find at [EvelineInTheBox]. They price their releases 25% off until the next new release, so if you like it, stop by and get a deal as well! There are 6 different huds, with various colours and patterns.

My amazing lipstick started the whole look and you will find the appliers for various lips, plus the inhouse mesh lips, at Soul.

Skin Fair is winding down this year, with only a few days left to visit the event.  I still have a few things to show you, and today’s choice is one of the more interesting things, at least for me.

Soul has come out with mesh mouths, Kissers, which launched at the Skin Fair, with their new line of skins, Davina.

There are 6 mesh mouths to choose from, with more in development, as well as updates already in the works, from feedback from those who purchased at the fair.

I can’t say I am one to go out and buy every mesh thing possible. I have my hands and feet, I have not gotten into the bodies yet. Same issue as when the slink ones first came out, there just isn’t many alternative choices. If I was a barbie, ya, maybe it would work, but I am not. The heads I wont do at all, unless I eventually just make my own, but then I’d have to develop skins too. The reason for this is I like my SL face. I have had this shape for years. Sure it has been tweaked a little here and there. It hasn’t changed all that much tho, not in the face at least. It is me, and I am not willing to give that up.

Lips tho, I can deal with them, occasionally. I was asked recently to make some appliers for the NyamNyam lips, by a customer, and was considering it.

This is the Cupid’s Pout – Open Mouth Kisser.

To the Left is me, with just the skin. To the right is me, with the mesh mouth. I did not tweak my shape at all for this. In your package with will find a notecard, which has a link to the tutorial for fitting your new mesh mouth. It took me all of 2 minutes. I don’t have it totally perfect, as you can see in the photos, I have some texture variation in the chin area, to each side.

To be honest, if you didn’t see me with just the skin, no mouth, you probably wouldn’t even notice., it is very slight.

If you don’t feel like buggering with it, there are shapes in the package, so that you can wear the mouth, right out of the box.

I don’t feel that they totally change my avatar, not any more than different skin lines do. Lips always change a little, either more full, or less. I still feel like me with these on.

The lips also come with a lip tint hud, so you can have some colour options, without having to try to find appliers. To the left is a straight up tint, to the right is a tint with a low glow added.

You have to remember, this is a very new product, so people making appliers for it will be very limited. I know PixyStix and Lumae currently have applier, they are at Skin Fair as well. If you would like to see who else is developing for them, there are signboards at the Soul Mainstore, listing all the stores.

You can view the different Kissers HERE as well as the new skin line, and some development pictures of an upcoming Kisser.

I also have a new tattoo makeup layer from Nuuna on, who is also at Skin Fair. This one is called Yair, coming in a whole slew of colours. There are 4 other new to Skin Fair releases at the booth. You can view them all HERE.

I enjoy that Yair goes deep into the hairline, I tried it on with all my dreadlocks, and am so pleased with it. It is a good buy too, there is many colours in the pack, for a more than reasonable price. You can always expect this at Nuuna’s. I highly suggest visiting the mainstore, for any of your alternative makeup needs.

A dip with the Forest Fae

Fae 1

I’m still getting my windlights remade, as well as making some new ones. I always try to keep them more natural, as I do on location shoots, and don’t edit my photos, other than putting them behind my blogging template. I sometimes will blur a nose triangle, or smooth a wonky pose crunch, but I want people to see the items, and not have to guess what they are.

I’d have to say that is something I do, due to being a designer, more than being a blogger. I know more than enough friends who have linked me to ads, from marketplace or flickr, and we have a good time of trying to figure out what exactly they are selling on the ad.

I have hard times making windlights that made hard shadows, which still being light enough to see everything, when shooting under prim obstructions, like these trees and mushrooms. I do like how this turned out tho. While the shadows are very very soft, it gives me a sort of moonlit glow.

Enough about me tho, lets get to the goods!

Fae 3a

I almost didn’t go to Collabor88 this round. It’s not an event I always shop at, I have to admit. I am glad I did tho, as I not only found an item I really love, but I found a new to me store.

Bauhaus Movement is the store. They made the headscarf with all the flowery bits on it. It takes a bit of creativity to use it. LadyLight has it too, and we both just sort of chucked off bangs and bits, off of mod hairstyles, to make it work to our liking.

We both will be continuing our coverage of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Here I show you some of the items from May’s Soul, these forest fairy clothing and branch bits. I also have on a collar from A Master’s Eye, which is really lovely. I don’t have a use for a slave collar, but I do love the design of it.

IRL I tend to enjoy organic looking jewelry. Things that are offset, and unbalance, or inspired nature itself. This piece delivers that for me.

I am posting a day after Fifty Linden Fridays. I really tried to get this out last night, and this is why i normally don’t blog the round, in general, haha. Glam Affair tends to leave their items out late, so please hurry on over, and see if the skins are still out. There are 2 tones in the pack, with lots of eyebrow colour options (which surprised me, haha). They had cute little glasses on for the round too.
