One of my all time favorite things about Skin Fair is the chance to get new skins in not so human tones. I do blog as a human, and I am normally humanoid in form, but I prefer to be alternatively coloured, when I am just being Helena, doing Helenay things.
OtherSkin is a new store for me. I actually participated in an event with them, where they made a rather nice collection of jewelry. As the name suggests, they also make skins. Man of man do they make skins. They all call to both my colour hoarding side, as well as my demony side.
Satura is new, and she has a unique story.
Never learned how to see and how to listen. She was blind, mute and deaf!
I think she was 7 Years old, or more 7000 Years, in the infinity of this room, when she was enlightened. It wasn’t that kind of enlightenment You are maybe thinking of now.
It wasn’t the light, who taught her heart how to suffer and how to enjoy. It wasn’t the first noise, who cleaned her eyes of the endless black of loneliness.
The truth is, she was touched, touched by a kind of premonition! Softly, it crawled her neck and went down the spine, to leave her body at the acute of her toes. Just to start again, looking for the way through her darkest emotions. The feeling, she hated it first, wasn’t willing to go, she tried all to get rid of it, but without success. It stayed permanent in her back, like someone who’s longing for Your soul!
She gave up, to chase away something, who came voluntary to her, and thought to herself, that everything free ok is for You!
It grew and became stronger, it told her so beautiful stories and so deep secrets of her being. She never wanted to miss that feeling anymore. She knew, she would die without it, she would loose herself, she never would longer exist without her wings!
Today, Satura is much older than 7 Years.
She has seen so beautiful and cruelly stories and sometimes she comes along to our planet, the lost garden, to watch the people let their own wings grow!

I love the background story, and while I did not style her like the story suggested, it would have been an easy route to take.
Above are some of the tones offered of this skin, at the fair. There are eyes to match each tone, which come in System and Mesh, as well as a shape(not worn) and Lola Appliers. A few other essentials are in each pack as well.
These don’t come with body appliers, nor hands or feet, but maybe if enough people support this budding designer, we can help her get the products/kits she needs to really push her store to the next level.
