Skin Fair 2016 – Tuli

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Skin Fair - Tuli

Tuli has a new line of skins out right now, called Iris, at Skin Fair. I was so excited to see the line, because at last year’s kin Fair, Tuli brought back her darker tones, and she seems to be sticking with it, so far. There was a good number of years when the darker tones were missing, so I have been snatching up whatever I can while she has the new ones out.

I am currently wearing Tone 7 of Iris, with no enhancements. The package comes with all sorts of things, such as lipsticks, gloss, eyeshadows, eyebrows, cleavage, shapes, as well as appliers. I feel very different in this skin, and I like it.

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.

Monday Eyeful – Spellscale Eyes by Senzafine

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Sensazine
On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a new series currently out at Genre. This round of Genre is themed “Age of Dragons”, and this new Spellscale eye series from Senzafine fits the theme perfectly.

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.

Get them while they are discounted, not sure if they will be going up in price after the event. Most things do.

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 2015 – Deesses – Part 2

Skin Fair 2015 - Deesses - Part 2 - 1
Today I am showing you one of the other skin lines from Deesses, which is currently only at the Skin Fair. There are still a few days left for the fair, and it is worth it to go, and not wait until things land at mainstores. Many booths have special pricing, just for the fair.

I’m mixing up the post with some items for this round of Genre. It is Biker themed, and I have had fun with all the various items I have gotten.

Vengeful Threads went all out, has nail appliers, tops and a full outfit. I have parts of the outfit on, which include all the jewelry, but I swapped out the pants for these chaps from The Annex.

Lets meet Nadine.

She might not be clothed,
she doesn’t need to dress,
she covets the ride,
her seat is blessed.
Helmet on head,
she’s ready to go,
climb that hog,
hit the road.

Sometime not even I know the outcome of an outfit, when I set to start one. Each one has a story, even if I don’t tell it. A reason why it started, how it came to be.

Today’s was a simple affair, in the beginning. I have more Skin Fair items to post, so naturally that was what started it all. How I transformed into a biker chic just getting out of bed, I do not really know. It just sort of happened.

This jacket is from Sn@tch, and one of the Riot Vendors that switch around each week. I have been shopping at Sn@tch for many years, since it had no more than 50 vendors on the walls.

I have heard reference to the label being the Walmart of SL. If Sn@tch is Walmart, I’d like some of that IRL please. There is always a bunch colours, I can pass things to my other avatars, fun patterns. What more could I want?

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - La Malvada Mujer - 4
La Malvada Mujer is a label that I have been following loosely over a good number of years. The designer has a unique vision, which you can clearly see in all the works produced for the store.

La Malvada Mujer has new, exclusive releases out at Skin Fair.

Zero is the wonderful tattoo I am wearing. The one thing that drew me to it is the knee. It isn’t often that you will see knees tattooed IRL, so I enjoy that attention to detail. Zero comes with Fresh Ink, which i am wearing, and 2 faded versions. There is Tattoo System Layers, as well as an TMP applier, in the pack.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - La Malvada Mujer - 6
Anna is the new skin, which comes in 4 tones.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - La Malvada Mujer - 7
There are various Addon Packs, to allow for added mixing and matching for your new skin. I am wearing various combos of the Anna Eye shadows, Anna Lipsticks, Fluo Eyebrows and then the Beauty Marks and Freckles from the skin pack.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - La Malvada Mujer - 8
There is also a nice little promo at the booth, which is a set of 5 lip glosses, called Lily. The pack is only L$10, comes with System Layers as well as the TMP Applier.

Genre is a monthly event, with items ranging from L$100 and below. Each round is themed, and has designers catering to fashion, accessories, body, Home&Garden, Poses and much more.

The outfit I am showing you today is super fun, it compliments my darker skin tones well. It comes with everything, Mask, Wings, Footwear, Tattoo and Dress.You can find this at Genre, by Vengeful Threads.

The Nails are at Genre too, with a whole hud of other colours. Sense-able Fashions also have a few other huds, with different nail patterns, at the event.

My Hair is from Adoness. I have been pleasantly surprised over the last year, with the various hair style releases. If you are into a more punky/alternative look, the styles found at this store are for you. They work with many themes; goth, punk, fantasy, syfy, high fashion, just to name a few. Colours are in ranges to suit any need.

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.

Party Time

I’ve been wanting to open the blog with something spectacular and fantasy oriented, but it just hasn’t worked out that way for me.

I really wanted to blog this outfit, and it didn’t fit any of my other places I blog, so here we are.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 1

I have a little dress like this irl, though the one I have is cranberry. I was super excited when this one showed up on my sl doorstep.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 2

I have been wearing this skin, in the different makeup options, for a few days now. I normally get Dulce Secrets skins for my alt, as it is one of the only place with darker tones(Ladylight is generally dark) that aren’t a mish mashed pixellated mess of stitched together RL photos. I don’t mind realistic skins, but I think sometimes there is a line, and it gets crossed often in our digital world. These come with Slink and Omega Appliers.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 3

Rings are something I wear often, and I have just started to carry that over into sl, the last few years. This little ring is unisex, and has various colour options for the metals available.

Not my normal Demony fair, but I do love me some other fashion from time to time.
