Venturing into the Sun

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Venturing into the Sun - 1
I have been away, doing all those thing you must do in the first life, to keep the second one going. It was just a short amount of time, but I couldn’t keep away from the blog much longer. I do enjoy it, it keeps all of the “mes” sane, when work gets too much, or the kids for that matter.

I ventured out into the sun the past weekend. I was fully covered, so the sun didn’t eat me. I wonder if being photosensitive is like the mild irritations older vampires get when they walk in the sun during the day. We got the last bit of sunday afternoon, I think. The warm is well on it’s way now.

Just a modge podge outfit, of randomness. The only thing new is the dress, which you will find at [EvelineInTheBox]. They price their releases 25% off until the next new release, so if you like it, stop by and get a deal as well! There are 6 different huds, with various colours and patterns.

My amazing lipstick started the whole look and you will find the appliers for various lips, plus the inhouse mesh lips, at Soul.

Monday Eyeful – Venus Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - S0NG

This week on Monday Eyeful, I visited the Hantai Fair, because come on, TENTACLES!!! There are so many, I was in my glory. Also, there happens to be a large amount of eyes up for grabs at the fair, which always makes me come running. S0NG is there with new eyes, and they still have me guessing as to why they are named what they are. They sort of look like they have snow, not sparkles, but snow, falling inside them. Like a little storm trapped in your eye. I always have such a hard time choosing what colour I want(and often go back for more month later, haha).

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

They are priced L$50 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Stix has some Limited Editions in their store right now. Hera is the base skinline, in a wonderful goth makeup. There are 4 tones to choose from. I am wearing the Drow tone, but my second favorite is the Snow. Stix always comes with all the appliers possible, I would really be surprised if you can’t make it work for your own mesh collection.

Grab your favorite while you can, they are only L$99 per tone!

Monday Eyeful – Medusa Eyes by Inkheart

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Inkheart

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a nice little affordable eye store, that caters to all sorts of genres in sl.

There are classic eyes as well as some more otherworldly, and everything in between. Inkheart seems very community driven, being active in events and hunts. There is a generous nature to the designer, and the price points work for those on a budget, to those who can afford a little bit more.

These are called Medusa, which I felt was aptly named.

They are priced L$49 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack. There are 3 Iris sizes to choose from, included in each pack.

Medusa Eye SeriesI enjoy wearing my Kissers mesh mouth for these Eyeful posts, as it really does add a little flare to my face, and is just fun for me in general. I get to show off the newly released Kisser Doll Lips today, these being the vampire version. There are 2 others, to match the other lines, which are Orc and Open.

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.

Extrademonstrial

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Extrademonstrial - 1

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.
