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.

A dip with the Forest Fae

Fae 1

I’m still getting my windlights remade, as well as making some new ones. I always try to keep them more natural, as I do on location shoots, and don’t edit my photos, other than putting them behind my blogging template. I sometimes will blur a nose triangle, or smooth a wonky pose crunch, but I want people to see the items, and not have to guess what they are.

I’d have to say that is something I do, due to being a designer, more than being a blogger. I know more than enough friends who have linked me to ads, from marketplace or flickr, and we have a good time of trying to figure out what exactly they are selling on the ad.

I have hard times making windlights that made hard shadows, which still being light enough to see everything, when shooting under prim obstructions, like these trees and mushrooms. I do like how this turned out tho. While the shadows are very very soft, it gives me a sort of moonlit glow.

Enough about me tho, lets get to the goods!

I almost didn’t go to Collabor88 this round. It’s not an event I always shop at, I have to admit. I am glad I did tho, as I not only found an item I really love, but I found a new to me store.

Bauhaus Movement is the store. They made the headscarf with all the flowery bits on it. It takes a bit of creativity to use it. LadyLight has it too, and we both just sort of chucked off bangs and bits, off of mod hairstyles, to make it work to our liking.

We both will be continuing our coverage of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Here I show you some of the items from May’s Soul, these forest fairy clothing and branch bits. I also have on a collar from A Master’s Eye, which is really lovely. I don’t have a use for a slave collar, but I do love the design of it.

IRL I tend to enjoy organic looking jewelry. Things that are offset, and unbalance, or inspired nature itself. This piece delivers that for me.

I am posting a day after Fifty Linden Fridays. I really tried to get this out last night, and this is why i normally don’t blog the round, in general, haha. Glam Affair tends to leave their items out late, so please hurry on over, and see if the skins are still out. There are 2 tones in the pack, with lots of eyebrow colour options (which surprised me, haha). They had cute little glasses on for the round too.
