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.

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.

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

Fantasy Faire 2015 – YoZakura Sim

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 1
The Villagers have all settled down, resting before the festival. The market seems quiet, with blossoms floating in the wind.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 2

The Blossoms whisper, carrying their secrets to the ears of those able to listen. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 3

On the hilltop high, some celebrate, unaware of what is brewing below, in the coming night.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 4

It is suddenly so calm, the ponds lay quiet, reflecting the sky.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 5

A sentry, with his lone lantern, lights the way, for whom, no one knows.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 6

Flowers glow, with mystical glow.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 7

Paper boats with well wishes float along, words twirling, caught by the whispers of the blossoms. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 8

Strange creatures, from the deep, surface from their sleep, drawn by the currents of power. Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 9

Asleep, hidden, for 1000 years.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 10

Something stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 11

On the hilltop high, the lights still twinkle.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 12

On the hilltop high, only the blossoms move.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 13

From the cave, where it stirs, out to the sky, where it moves, up on the rock, where it rests, where you see it’s mighty crest.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 14

Nothing else stirs.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 15

It speaks to the moon, the trees and the ponds. It blesses the people, whom are it’s charge. It wishes them well, and bids them good night. It looks to the air, and takes to flight.

Fantasy Faire 2015 - YoZakura - 16

What wonders unfold, on Hanami Festival night. What lies beyond the border, what fantasies come to light?

Visit YoZakura – you only have until the 3rd!

Death, She Rides

1

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The Bible – Revelation 6:8

2

I’ve had this outfit in my inventory for a good week, and just have been too busy to do anything with it. Before I shoot more ads today, I decided I better get this up, so I hope you enjoy.

The skin and hand appliers are from Horror Haute, which just closed until the next round. I just didn’t get this up before it closed, but be sure to find the items in the stores.

3

The Horns with the eyeballs are from The Horror, and are really fun. There is a texture change hud, so you can change the horns as well as the eyeballs.

I’m also wearing a few things from the current round of Genre. You have until April 11th to visit, before they close down for the next round. This round is biker themed, and the designers have gone all out with their items.

Supernatural has a few bodysuits for those of you who are a bit more adventurous in your attire, while on your rides. There are appliers for Banned, TMP and Omega, for those of you with mesh parts.

Vengeful Threads has a outfit there that is easily parted out and mixed up with other things from the event. I am wearing the pants and belt. Closeup of the belt below, as it had so much going on, you just had to see the details.

4

Lots going on, haha.

5

These babies are from Deadpool. There are some other versions as well, without the iron cross, if the symbolism of it is just not your thing.

***Added Note – Some of the events I picked these items at came to a close recently. While TPing around to check slurls, not all items were out. I think due to the holidays, designers are a bit lagged with getting things out in the mainstores, so please be patient, if you are looking for a certain item.***

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.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Extrademonstrial - 2

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.

Worlds Collide

Story Time with Helena:

When making this outfit today, once completed, I sort of felt a bit like a Red Queen. I naturally started to look for possible on site locations where I could shoot. I don’t make my own locals, like some talented bloggers do. I just don’t have the space for that sort of thing on my sim. So I have to go forth, look on the grid, and find something to my liking. Sometime search is my friend. Sometimes it hates me.

So I typed in castle, and it brings up all sorts of interesting things. I often have to visit 30 locations, before finding something I can work with. I only had one stop this time. A location named Red Queen popped up, and it had castles! It had to be the perfect sim for a Fantasy Queen!

Sometimes it pays to actually read the location ads. It was a store that sold castles.

Never fear though, I am good with making things work. Even if they seem like utter opposites that should never work.

I’m not sure the intent of the store owner, when choosing the name she did for her store. Most of the builds have a gothic/vampire feel to them, so I thought the name more of a higher up vamp, bathed in blood, worshiped by her underlings.

I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by zombies, and having to run a laser gauntlet to get to the store. I didn’t have sound on, but I’m sure there is some creepy girl child telling me that we would all die down there.

So Red Queen meets Red Queen meets Red Queen.

Worlds Collide!

Totally Top Shelf is open, and the general theme this round is “Realms”. There are so many different things, as each designer took inspiration from a different novel/gameboard/videogame. Most of what I have on is pieced together from the event.

This Chainmail Collar from Azoury has to be one of my favorite items in a long time. It doesn’t stop gleaming.

3

I got lucky today, as I was extra horny, more so than usual.

A horned crown and head horns. Why, what were you guys thinking I was talking about?

4

The other side of the sword is more ornate, but I have to admit, I normally don’t have hand weapons on, so lack the proper poses for showcasing them. Everything I had that sort of worked, made it look like sword porn.

The real reason for the start of this post in the first place was the new skins from Dulce Secrets, at Skin Fair 2014.

There are 3 new lines, in 5 tones each. I am really enjoying the Claire line, but they all suit my face, which was nice. No Tweaks Needed!

Dulce Secrets also has an Exclusive Makeup pack at the Skin Fair. It’s called “On the Horizon”, has a bunch of colourations, and comes with pearls which you can choose to wear as an attachment.

12

 Pin me Down is also at the Skin Fair with Exclusives. This is a makeup you can get, either in Black or White, that have the full face layer, or just eyes and just lips. They are mod too, so you can tint them if you so choose.

Not a new items, but more of a new-to-me item, I got these eyes from Inkheart while on a hunt. I have to say I love them. The store has a different sort of pricing structure, so I am not sure if these were on sale, or were on of their more expensive items. They were only L$49, but were one of their higher priced items??? I’m not going to complain!  If you want something striking and different, stop by the shop, they have a lot of more natural lines, then a few that are more fantasy.

Nothing gold can Stay

Nothing gold can Stay - 1
One of my all time favorite things about Skin Fair is the chance to get new skins in not so human tones. I do blog as a human, and I am normally humanoid in form, but I prefer to be alternatively coloured, when I am just being Helena, doing Helenay things.

OtherSkin is a new store for me. I actually participated in an event with them, where they made a rather nice collection of jewelry. As the name suggests, they also make skins. Man of man do they make skins. They all call to both my colour hoarding side, as well as my demony side.

Satura is new, and she has a unique story.

Nothing gold can Stay - 2
Her name is Satura, she was born in the darkest room of our souls, she wasn’t able to speak.

Never learned how to see and how to listen. She was blind, mute and deaf!

I think she was 7 Years old, or more 7000 Years, in the infinity of this room, when she was enlightened. It wasn’t that kind of enlightenment You are maybe thinking of now.

It wasn’t the light, who taught her heart how to suffer and how to enjoy. It wasn’t the first noise, who cleaned her eyes of the endless black of loneliness.

The truth is, she was touched, touched by a kind of premonition! Softly, it crawled her neck and went down the spine, to leave her body at the acute of her toes. Just to start again, looking for the way through her darkest emotions. The feeling, she hated it first, wasn’t willing to go, she tried all to get rid of it, but without success. It stayed permanent in her back, like someone who’s longing for Your soul!

She gave up, to chase away something, who came voluntary to her, and thought to herself, that everything free ok is for You!

It grew and became stronger, it told her so beautiful stories and so deep secrets of her being. She never wanted to miss that feeling anymore. She knew, she would die without it, she would loose herself, she never would longer exist without her wings!

Today, Satura is much older than 7 Years.

She has seen so beautiful and cruelly stories and sometimes she comes along to our planet, the lost garden, to watch the people let their own wings grow!

Written by Kaleidos, Owner/Designer of OtherSkin

OtherSkin

I love the background story, and while I did not style her like the story suggested, it would have been an easy route to take.

Above are some of the tones offered of this skin, at the fair. There are eyes to match each tone, which come in System and Mesh, as well as a shape(not worn) and Lola Appliers. A few other essentials are in each pack as well.

These don’t come with body appliers, nor hands or feet, but maybe if enough people support this budding designer, we can help her get the products/kits she needs to really push her store to the next level.
