Hair Fair 2016 – To Dance with Familiars

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - To Dance with Familiars - 1

One of my favorite things is to take fantasy elements and try to make them work for my ethnic looks. I get saddened when I see written content, blatantly stating that certain genres of characters should only be of certain body types and skin tones. I will admit, that before coming an official blogger for the Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group, my styles fell in 3 categories. Modern, Bumble Bee/Panda or Drow. When I was a drow, I was often the dark ashen skin colour. My Bumble Bee and Panda Girl looks were always with my regular dark toned skin. I will admit that I would go ethnically asian every once in a while. There was one skin maker in particular that I enjoyed, so would get her stuff for kicks every once in a while. I don’t tend to like looking at the traditional geisha looks on dark skin, that does seem really odd to me. I will wear other asian inspired clothing as I normally am though.

This is just random blabbery, for no particular reason. I haven’t been bashed or anything.

I took these shots at one of my favorite places in second life. It’s called The Outer Garden, and they just completed a reworking of 2 of their garden levels. So I decided to go exploring.  I fell in love with this one little area off the main track, and decided to do a mini, on location shoot for today’s post.

Adoness is at Hair Fair this year, with 3 new styles. I chose to show you my favorite of the selections, which made me feel all warrior woman. It is a mixed mesh style, with the braid being rigged, but the upper part of the hair being modifiable, which is super nice if you like wearing mesh heads. I just used the default shaved hairbase in the hud of my Catwa head, and tinted it to make sense with the hair.

A portion of all hairs sold at Hair Fair go to Wigs for Kids, so even if you don’t pick up this Adoness style, it is worth it to take a browse of the whole event.

Growing Temptation

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Growing Temptation - 1

It is funny how your avatar will evolve, and it feels like it is sudden, when you notice it. I use to collect bumble bee things and panda things, and run around the grid wearing all this super cutesie stuff. I am aware I haven’t worn any of that for a long time now, but I did notice today that I delve more into the fantasy side of things, lately. I did a good stint of urban wear for a good number of years, and while I still wear that for my daily sl tasks, it seems like I am blogging more fanciful things.

Not that I mind in the least. I love trying to make it work with my avatar, and showing others in the ethnic community that it is doable.

I want to talk about all the things I am wearing, but that doesn’t make for a fun post. I will let you know that this snake is animated, and it’s tail coils around you back and to the side.You can find him in a gacha at the new round of Fair Play.

Banana Banshee has new items, it’s owner back from the realms of the real, where she was attending to her newborn. It is great to see the new creations. These new eyes are so darn striking, and I love that they offer the dark alongside the light versions, for the Sclera.

The tiara is from Noble Creations, and is mod, so I totally modded it to suit my needs. This is what the original looks like:

Natural Calm

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Natural Calm

Being part of a family is always great, although I don’t really talk to the ladies of Dandelion Daydreams Factory Sim all that often. They have welcomed us from Pixel Mythos, to their sim, and have given us rez rights. Many pictures have been taken on the sim, and posted to this blog, as well as Free*Style. I always feel comfortable here, and enjoy the nature on my visits. I always find something new, and enjoy visiting favorite spots. It is great for me to be able to quickly rez out an item, that I otherwise would not be able to post, for lack of a proper place to rez it.

Today I have some H&G items from [CIRCA] to show you. The log behind me, is a couples log, with many animations. It has grasses and flowers with it, to make a complete and cozy little scene. The Sleeping Willow in the back is also from [CIRCA], which comes with some grasses at it’s base. Both items you can find at Fantasy Faire, which is officially running until May 1st.

I’m also wearing a few things from Fantasy Faire. There is always so much to discover, to collect, do participate in. I actually take time off, so that I can enjoy it a bit, each year.

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.

Papermoon is in the current round of 20Twenty, which is a monthly Mainstore Tour, offering up a new item at 20% off. The item this Peasant Haltertop, which Papermoon named a Corselette, which I thought was endearing. You get a hud with 8 variations to choose from.

Adoness is at Flower Power, an event bringing you the newest fashions for the upcoming spring season. The new hair to their hairline is Baldur, which comes with a shaved side with the option of a decorative hair flower and chain. There is a hud, so you can change the texture of the flowers, or the chain metal, to match any outfit. Flower Power Fair ends tomorrow, Feb 26th, so go soon. While there, check out the special pack of Baldur, which is only L$99.
