Throwback Thursdays – 2015 – Winter Halo

***Special Note – This was another post that just never made it up on the blog, which had some rather nice shots already done up. I even wrote the whole thing up, just never coded it. Not sure why. This baby was from March 2015.***

1

I have been wearing this outfit on and off for a bit now, and just been putting it off to the side, to post other things. I am not feeling that well today, so it was an easy decision to post this up. No hard work needed.

My friend longtime friend, Ruina Kessel, owner of Devae(House of Ruin and Rue), created this interesting Halo. I have to admit to not having a clue what event she originally created it for.

I got the last of the Limited Editions up for this hair, on SL Marketplace, so it is finally available for the general public. This is one of my favorite hairs, which is why I wear it so often. It is also one from my personal unreleased collection, hence why it is limited, and was never slated for the store.

I am getting a lot of new traffic, so you all may not know me. I am a lover of colour, so while I do tread more on the goth/punk/alternative side of things, I have never been one to just wear black. I enjoy creations from Adoness for this reason. Not only do most of the items work with my hair colours, but there is a variety of colours, depending on what the item is. This long winter coat is a fine example, pairing red and purple is not something most designers would do. The fact that it is a floral print to boot, well, I could not stay away, haha.

I also have some eyes from Chop Shop on, these call to my demony side. Hypnotic and gloomy.

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 – The Devil in Disguise Eyes by Chop Shop

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Chop Shop

This week on Monday Eyeful, I dug out some eyes from Chop Shop. I wanted something a bit different to go with my new Tao Skin from Fallen Gods Inc. I also wanted to have some dual action going on, to sorta match what was going on with the skin.

These are called called The Devil in Disguise Eyes, though I really don’t think you end up hiding that part of you all that well with these peepers, haha.

They are priced L$100 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

The Devil in Disguise
If you want your own mixed up skin, Fallen Gods Inc has these Tao skins currently at Skin Fair 2016. You can view all the options and available appliers at the Official Site HERE.

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.

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.

Priced at L$75 per pair for the duration of Genre. Since it is a discount event, you can be sure these will be going up incrementally once they return to the mainstore. Better to grab them now. There are System and Mesh included in each pack.

Monday Eyeful – Rabben Eyes from !Chop Shop!

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - May 25th

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you an older release from !Chop Shop!. There have been a wave of older items going up on SL Marketplace, which has made me happy. The store is a newer one, having been around for less than 2 years. I missed out on a few of the earlier products, and am happy I can now fill in my collection.

These eye are called Rabben, and only have System versions included. There are 9 colourations to collect, each costing only L$50, or you can grab the whole set at a discount.

Chop Shop has just released another unique series of eyes. The set is called Bitter, and I am wearing the red version today. There is suppose to be a story behind the eyes, but I have yet to figure it out. Had too many late nigh, much like tonight, and am a bit braindead.

Bats by Moonlight

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Bats by Moonlight - 1

Routine daily, lost inside completely
Burning flame, flowing like rain
Still night outside, filled emotions inside
I saw it, the MoonLight

Deep thoughts, thousand quotes
Soaring high above, heavy clouds move
Wandering sight, took flight
I saw it, the MoonLight

Keep this to me, or let the world see
How it feels, desire to love
Her heart, the pure secret
Yes, now I see it, the MoonLight

Random awesome pic I took, whilst playing with my water settings again.

I was playing around with some of my older hairstyles today, as I have had more than a few requests come in lately, asking for them. While putting my new hair textures on some(which will be launched at Hair Fair 2015), I decided it was time for a look.

I ended up transforming into this beauty.

Plastik has been releasing like mad lately. This dress is one of 3 new releases in the mainstore right now. As with all Plastik items, there are a bunch of colours/patterns to choose from.

View the New Releases at the stores Official Site HERE.

This bracelet is also from Plastik, part of a larger jewelry set, which is being sold at this round of Secret Affair. The set is called Mystic Shot, and the various pieces are comprised of Bullet Cartridges with Crystals in them. I can only imagine when they have been spelled with, and what you would have to use them against. These also come in various colours, sold separately, and each pack has 3 metals included.

See the Seraphim Gallery for more info, and view pictures of all the other product available at the event.

Due to my blogging nature on Free*Style, it is sometimes hard NOT to blog free items, haha. So there will be some bleeding over here from time to time. This bracelet is a free gift from Sn@tch, at the Skin Fair. It is a matching set, so there is one for each wrist.

I decided to go to the Cosmopolitan Sales round this month. There are just so many events now, it is not possible for me to get to them all. I actually went for something else, but saw these boots, and had to have them. They have a texture change hud, so you can change the leathers/patterns, as well as the soles, giving you a wide range of possibilities.

View more about this event, and current round, at their Main Site HERE.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Bats by Moonlight - 7

Finally, because I wont stop until the event is done, we got Skin Fair stuff on too! These makeups are from Senzafine. They are new, each pack comes with 6 colours, and the Eyeliner Packs have matching Lip Packs. I just did some mixed combos, so you could see a few of the colours.

If you would like to see some more of the colours, or just the packs in general, please visit the Flickr Link HERE, all the Skin Fair packs are at the top.

The Eyes worn throughout the post are a new, mainstore release from Chop Shop. They are called Jaded and are a more realistic styled eye. There are 2 sizes per colouration, in the purchasable packs. The middle me has the smaller size on, the 2 outer mes have the larger size.

View the other colourations HERE.

Celebrate

I miss my laptop =(

So obviously due to the fact that I have to deal with taking crappy pics, I wont be using my normal blogging template. Also, to hide the fact that the pics are bad, I have taken some creative license with the photos, while still trying to keep the items I am showcasing as close to what they would look like in SL.

My efforts sort of look like a LadyLight post, haha, but we will just have to go with it for now.

Celebrate

There are very few stores I am an official blogger for. This is mostly just due to my store coming first. I do have a few designers who have insisted over the years, not minding my sporadic coverage. I have a few others that are willing to give me a chance, even with me not being able to cover every single item when it comes out.

One of these stores is Chop Shop. I am a lover of all things eyes, and that is what you will mostly find at this store. I was a long time purchaser, and eventually was invited to be an official blogger.

The thing that drew me to the store was mostly the creativity. As a collector of eyes, it is very easy to see the same things on the grid. Sure you can have 100 stores with lovely eyes, but if they are all normally based, how many ice blue eyes do you really need? and how often would you wear the different ones?

When I am not designing for my own label, or blogging, I am typically some form of half demon, half humanoid type thing. I do throw in other bits of fantasy creatures here and there.

The one thing I have always tried to look for, are unique eyes. If I have to go run to meet a client/customer, event organizer/so on, I do throw on something a bit more normal, take of my tentacles, and tp to their location. One thing I like to maintain, to stay true to my inner second self, is my eyes. I like for them to stay unique, and not totally normal.

Chop Shop provides with for me. Not only do they carry a regular series of eyes, but they also have lots of unique ones to choose from.

The store is also relatively new, in terms of how long I have been on the grid. Clocking in at just over a year old, I feel this store could use a bit more exposure.

The eyes really are lovely, and they match most of my hair colours, haha.

The eyes that started this whole look are these “Love Me?” eyes in Blue Lightning. They are a gacha item, and I am busting the lid off of one of the Mystery Rares, as that is what the Blue Lightning is. There are still a few more Mystery Rares to collect. The rest of the gacha line you can view HERE. If you would like to see what else this store has to offer, while not on the grid, feel free to browse the rest of the flickr feed HERE.

The little heart ring is another item from Chop Shop, which also happens to be a gacha item. You will find it, and the eyes, as the newly opened “Streets of Love” event.

eye

Excuse the crap resolution, the eyes really are more lovely inworld, you will just have to go play the gacha, haha. There were basically screen shots, as I can’t save photos from sl right now.

I had been meaning to wear this outfit long before now. It is one of a few colourations being offered at Genre, by !deviousMind. This round is themed Celebration, because it was Genre’s BDay. The event is now going into it’s 3rd year, which is great. I have long loved being a part of it.

!deviousMind is another store that has never been afraid of colour. Not many places will make bright yellow items, never mind it being burlesque styled balloon getups. I originally was just going to do the head shot, but had to show you the back bustle bit, haha. I was actually dancing on in my design studio, just to watch the confetti swish around. Until I crashed. #Helenasadfacewantslappybackhome

The outfit is called Party, there are a bunch of colours. Each pack comes with a plethora of appliers, layers, items. It really would be too much to go into, but just one outfit will explode you inventory, with the amount of stuff that is in there.

Genre is open until the 12th Feb. All items are L$100 or less. This round, due to it’s special theme, has various designers offering a L$10 promo item.
