Monday Eyeful – The Devil in Disguise Eyes by Chop Shop

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Chop Shop

This week on Monday Eyeful, I dug out some eyes from Chop Shop. I wanted something a bit different to go with my new Tao Skin from Fallen Gods Inc. I also wanted to have some dual action going on, to sorta match what was going on with the skin.

These are called called The Devil in Disguise Eyes, though I really don’t think you end up hiding that part of you all that well with these peepers, haha.

They are priced L$100 per colour. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

The Devil in Disguise
If you want your own mixed up skin, Fallen Gods Inc has these Tao skins currently at Skin Fair 2016. You can view all the options and available appliers at the Official Site HERE.

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.

Death’s New Face

War, come with me now . . .

Every once in a while, death gets a new face. This doesn’t mean Death is always the same, in person and mind. Sometimes it is almost like a rebirth, a start over. Sometimes it is like a possession.

The Cycle is good, as each new Death deal’s with it’s task in a new way.

Totally Top Shelf has opened, and this round it packed full of awesomely spooky items. It’s the perfect one stop shop for the halloween season, so if you haven’t been yet, stop on by.

Souzou Eien has this Mausoleum discounted at Allhallows Showcase Festival, which inspired me to create a whole set for my blogging background. It is the first fully created one by me, I had lots of fun doing it. I have shared it with a great friend, Bambi Chicque, who is the Blogger Manager of Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group. She makes really great setups and processes awesome photos, so her flickr is worth a look.

These striking eyes are from a store I have actually never heard of, called TrevaH. There are a bunch of colours, and you can find them at Totally Top Shelf. while there, check out these plugs from Tabou Irresistable, I didn’t take the best pics of them, but they are covered in blood droplets. There is a nose ring that matches(not worn), also at the event. You can find the crown there too! I wasn’t kidding when I said one stop shopping. Azoury did this piece, and I thought it totally fitting, if Death decided she wanted to see a ruler of her realm.

Stix has created a skin that can be used so many different ways. I chose to be Death, but you could dress this up as a zombie too, I think. Maybe a crow, ghoul or vampire too. It works anyway, haha. As always, her skins come with ALL THE APPLIERS EVER, so much so that your inventory will explode. So if you are into having all the mesh things on at all times, this will probably work for you, just nab a demo to be sure.

I think I put on too much, there are too many things to talk about!

Eveline in the Box has come out with a series of dresses, called Starling. There are 4 variations of the dress, each coming with a hud that allows you to change the skirt portion, and the top & drape portion of the dress. These are new to the Mainstore, and you can find them right up front.

The last thing, which was a late edition to the outfit, was these wings from The Forge, for Uber.  They have steampunk/post apocalyptic elements, but I thought it sort of looked like old skin stretched in between all the metal frames, so I threw them in for kicks, haha.

Monday Eyeful – Drowned Eyed by Clemmm

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Clemmm

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I wanted something a little spooky, since I looked so pretty like, and we can’t have that now can we!

I do collect many eyes, it is my one true downfall in second life, haha. Some people have hair, some people have shoes, many have gacha items as the crutch now. Mine is, and probably always will be, eyes. Clemmm makes some fairly unique ones, and if you don’t normally go for something Macabre/Otherwordly/Horrorish, well it is the month to try something out. The prices wont kill you either, they are affordable, which allows you more options to play with.

These are called Drowned, and are very eerie.

They are priced L$73 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

ENCHANTED81415CLEMMM-590x443

I bedazzled myself a little today, with items from a little known fantasy store called Noble Creations. The majority of their items are Home&Garden related, but they do make some avatar accessories. The feel of the store is Fantasy/Roleplay. The details to each piece are meticulously created, and the textures are so full of depth. All the creations here are 100% original, and worth a look.

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.
