Hair Fair 2016 – To Dance with Familiars

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - To Dance with Familiars - 1

One of my favorite things is to take fantasy elements and try to make them work for my ethnic looks. I get saddened when I see written content, blatantly stating that certain genres of characters should only be of certain body types and skin tones. I will admit, that before coming an official blogger for the Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group, my styles fell in 3 categories. Modern, Bumble Bee/Panda or Drow. When I was a drow, I was often the dark ashen skin colour. My Bumble Bee and Panda Girl looks were always with my regular dark toned skin. I will admit that I would go ethnically asian every once in a while. There was one skin maker in particular that I enjoyed, so would get her stuff for kicks every once in a while. I don’t tend to like looking at the traditional geisha looks on dark skin, that does seem really odd to me. I will wear other asian inspired clothing as I normally am though.

This is just random blabbery, for no particular reason. I haven’t been bashed or anything.

I took these shots at one of my favorite places in second life. It’s called The Outer Garden, and they just completed a reworking of 2 of their garden levels. So I decided to go exploring.  I fell in love with this one little area off the main track, and decided to do a mini, on location shoot for today’s post.

Adoness is at Hair Fair this year, with 3 new styles. I chose to show you my favorite of the selections, which made me feel all warrior woman. It is a mixed mesh style, with the braid being rigged, but the upper part of the hair being modifiable, which is super nice if you like wearing mesh heads. I just used the default shaved hairbase in the hud of my Catwa head, and tinted it to make sense with the hair.

A portion of all hairs sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids, so even if you don’t pick up this Adoness style, it is worth it to take a browse of the whole event.

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.

The new hair to their hairline is Baldur, which comes with a shaved side with the option of a decorative hair flower and chain.

Monday Eyeful – Medusa Eyes by Inkheart

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Inkheart

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a nice little affordable eye store, that caters to all sorts of genres in sl.

There are classic eyes as well as some more otherworldly, and everything in between. Inkheart seems very community driven, being active in events and hunts. There is a generous nature to the designer, and the price points work for those on a budget, to those who can afford a little bit more.

These are called Medusa, which I felt was aptly named.

They are priced L$49 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack. There are 3 Iris sizes to choose from, included in each pack.

Medusa Eye SeriesI enjoy wearing my Kissers mesh mouth for these Eyeful posts, as it really does add a little flare to my face, and is just fun for me in general. I get to show off the newly released Kisser Doll Lips today, these being the vampire version. There are 2 others, to match the other lines, which are Orc and Open.

Monday Eyeful – Bizerk Eyes by !Chop Shop!

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Chop Shop

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I have some non human eyes, which I felt would be good for the upcoming Halloween season. They would do well for roleplay too, they sort of look like machinery parts, to me.

They are priced at L$100 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

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.

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.
