Papermoon is in the current round of 20Twenty, which is a monthly Mainstore Tour, offering up a new item at 20% off. The item this Peasant Haltertop, which Papermoon named a Corselette, which I thought was endearing. You get a hud with 8 variations to choose from.

Adoness is at Flower Power, an event bringing you the newest fashions for the upcoming spring season. The new hair to their hairline is Baldur, which comes with a shaved side with the option of a decorative hair flower and chain. There is a hud, so you can change the texture of the flowers, or the chain metal, to match any outfit. Flower Power Fair ends tomorrow, Feb 26th, so go soon. While there, check out the special pack of Baldur, which is only L$99.

I was getting ready to put this hair out in the store today, and felt the urge to do up an outfit to go along with it. I was so happy with the results, I felt the need to share.

I think I just ate the Groom

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - I think I just ate the Groom - 1
Disoriented, she crawls out of a damp, dark place.

With her mind still foggy, she tries to make sense of what is going on. She knows it is night, she has a glimmer of recognition as to where she is.

Why exactly she is in the cemetery, laying under the church no less, she has no clue.

She looks down upon herself, noticing the absurd amount of blood on her hands. What has she been doing? She checks over herself, and notices that her clothing is pristine. Not a drop of blood anywhere. While the colours might not suit her tastes(who wears black anyway?), at least she isn’t injured and mucky.

She hears footsteps near the path.

“Hello . . .HELLO! Would you be so kind as to tell me what is going on around here?”

She hears the footsteps scurrying faster.

Out of the shadows they call, “The Mayor’s son has disappeared, his wife-to-be was murdered, they think. They were to be married a few mornings ago, she never arrived. They found a mess at her home, and her parents brutally murdered. I don’t think this is the time, nor the type of night to be out late, my dear, best be going home, while you still can. Weird happenings are always close to this town, the not so Sleepy Hallow.”

The Footsteps sound faster, then go faintly into the night.

She looks at herself again. While the colour seems off, her clothing and adornments do suggest a more formal affair. A familiar sent wafts up from the dried muck on her hands.

She decides to get answers, and starts to weave through the tombstones. She trips over something, lands heavily to the ground, and comes face to face with what is left of a man. Or she things it was a man, given the suit he is wearing.

Most of his neck is savagely torn apart, not leaving much flesh, with the spinal cord glistening in the moonlight. The same scent from her hands assails her, from the dark stain pooling beneath the wound.

Something clicks in her head, and the memories flood in.

“Well, I guess Mama was right after all. I was to lead the life of a spinster, forever alone. She was so surprised about the proposal, when it finally came. Well, I guess it was not meant to be, I think I just ate the Groom.”

“Oh, I have something on my face? Was it over here, did I get it?”

Vampire Chronicles is a new, rather unknown event, that actually ends tomorrow. If you are in need of a few new things, for all your dark, undeadly dealings, please stop on by while you have the chance. Also, keep a watch out for the next round of the event.

Fantasy Gacha Carnival starts it’s new round in a few days, May 12th to be exact. I am so very excited, this rounds themes were mostly right up my alley, so you will be seeing lots on the blog, in the next little while.

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.

Carry the burden of my Sins

MY LAPTOP IS BACK!

So I have somethings a bit different for you today.

I lost a lot of my windlights, as they typically are in the program files of SL. When I had my data transferred, before the laptop was sent off to the other side of the country, they only saved my user folder.

So I was trying to go thru some of the old tutorials I did to create those I didn’t have, when I came across one I really wanted to do for a while. That was making a mirror-like water effect.

I managed to do it, after some fandangling.

Snapshot_012

I chose to use these heels from Deadpool to showcase my new windlight. I’m lucky enough to have been long time friends with the creator. It is always interesting to see what friends are up to inworld, and play with their creations. Cheers to those who have put up with me all these years, haha.

The heels are black, with silver accents, and the wonderful skeleton heel. They are 100% original mesh, and come in a gold version as well. The skin I am wearing is grey, and then I threw in some black nails. It probably would have been simpler to just make the shots black and white in photoshop, but I enjoyed making these naturally in sl.
