Hair Fair 2016 – Lightbloom

Lightbloom

My Daughter wanted me to be a Fairly Princess Ballerina today. I don’t always have the time to give in to her wanting to use my avatar as a personal barbie doll, but I found a wee bit of time today. I knew just the perfect outfit in my inventory, that would suit what I figured her aim was. While it might not be pink, haha, she was ultimately thrilled with all the goodies in the outfit pack. I never let her actually take over my avi, she is far too young, but she sits as close to me as she can, and oversees the whole outfit creation. This is a bit more tame, compared to others she has created, which suits me fine. If she had her way, I’d always be in pink, bows and ruffles. There would never be a spot of blood on my digital person again. The Horror!

I have always worn my own hair creations, ever since I decided that a Hair Designer was what I wanted to be. That being said, I don’t normally blatantly hawk my creations. They are simply worn and credited. Sometimes I will write a funny store story, but I don’t go “Oh, I made this, go buy it.”

So here we go . . .

Oh, I made this totally awesome hair, go buy it!

Haha, I am only saying it because it is one of the 5 styles I have created for Hair Fair, a yearly charity event, that I have participated in since the beginning of my store. A portion of every style goes to Wigs for Kids. That isn’t just my own styles, but every style that is on the 4 sims we hair designers are populating this year. There are also the traditional bandanas, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. I have 5 of those at the event as well.

I thought I’d add this hear, since this is one of the few posts I didn’t do a headshot. This set was released for Enchantment in May, and I did already blog it on my other blog, Free*Style, but it fit today’s theme perfectly, and the girl oooo’d and aaaaaah”d over them. She had much fun with the colour change huds. She always likes the Plastik items, cause they have a bagillion options(tho she still only ever picks pink, usually).

Skinful Sundays – Elistrae Skins by Plastik

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Skinful Sundays - Plastik 1

I wear so many alternatively toned skins, and get constantly asked what I am wearing, either by people bumping into me or visitors at the store. I thought it might be nice to start featuring some of the places I collect my crayola coloured skins from, as they aren’t always the easiest things to find.

First up are the new Elistrae Skins from Plastik. These were newly released at Skin Fair last month, I just didn’t manage to roll out this feature while the event was open. You can now find these at the Plastik Mainstore.

Plastik has a buttload of appliers, like there are so many. If you end up not being able to use these skins with your mesh parts, I would be super surprised. The one thing that draws me in is that they still support Genesis Labs, which many designers have stopped creating for. While I do have a Logo mesh head now, I still am drawn to the Genesis Lab heads the most, so any designer that still makes appliers for them is bound to stay in my top 10 for skin makers.

Another great feature of the skins is that you can have glitter on your butt. How many skins in recent years have you seen with glitter on the butt?

The Skins make me think of a cross between Fantasy Space Alien and Drow. There are many tones to choose from, which makes it super hard to pick just ones. Zesstra is probably my favorite, if I was forced to choose just one.

Monday Eyeful – Cypher Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul1

This week on Monday Eyeful, I take you on an epic adventure through the cosmos. Well, not really, but you will find these eyes at Multiverse, a Sci-Fi event that is going on right now, until March 15th. These eyes really do give you a sense of otherness, when you put them on.

These are called called Cypher, and have a good mix of colours to choose from.

They are priced L$199 per colour. System, Mesh, and Applier versions are included in the pack. The Appliers work with and Omega Support Eye mesh, like the Logo Heads, and they have Genesis Eye appliers as well.

Soul made Skins and Makeups for Multiverse as well, for the Men and Ladies of the galaxy. They are easy to mix and match, to create a unique futuristic look.

I threw on a necklace from Plastik, which is new as well, and comes with all the normal Gem Changing Hud features.

My Head is from Genesis Lab, which is the only mesh head I currently support right now, fully. I know the others are more end user friendly, but I find that it is much easier to stay looking unique with the Genesis heads. They have elements which are very similar to my Default face I have had for years, and maybe that is why I am the most drawn to them. This is Melissa, which was out for the February round of Collabor88. They are doing event switchover, so I am sure the head will be back in the mainstore shortly.

Monday Eyeful – Oculos Eyes by Soul

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Soul

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing the new release from Soul, out now for the new round of Enchantment. The Theme is The Last Unicorn. I loved that movie growing up, it made me cry lots, but I still loved, it. Watched it with my aunt, after my mom died, we would sit and eat bonbons out of the box, and have a box of tissues and a cat a piece on our laps.

These are called called Oculos, and have a large variety of colour.

They are priced L$199 for the full pack(not sure what the regular price will be). System and Mesh versions are included in the pack, as well as appliers for Genesis and Omega.

Plastik is also at Enchantment, offering many items, really, so many! Amalthea is like anything they make, jewerly wise, in that is has various necklace types for each necklace pendant. You get a texture change hud, which reacts to the gems, studs and horn, for a more customized look.

Thinking in the Dark

1
Soul lost in thought of centuries past
Mourning family and loved ones long gone
Inescapable bitterness of immortality
Kingdoms rise and fall, man toils on
Generation by generation
To what end? A purpose defined by mortal confines
Escapes the grasp of a timeless mind
Thinking weakened by bloodlust
The delicate balancing act of sanity
