Monday Eyeful – Darks Eyes by La Boheme

Helena Stringer - FreeStyle - Monday Eyeful - La Boheme

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am excited to bring you some news. I have been a patron at La Boheme for some time now, and they have started to make eyes! As with everything they do, there are many options in each affordable pack.

These don’t have a fancy name, and are simply called Dark Eyes.

They are priced L$50(1/3 off for We Love Roleplay) per pack of 10 colorations. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

I ended up purchasing 2 packs. There is even a L$5 sampler of 2 variations, so you can try them out before you go all in and buy up all the packs.

!Musa! Aaliyah ad

It is a We Love Roleplay day, so I am also wearing the new Eyeshadow from Musa. I layered it on top of the new skin from Tuli. Tuli did an interesting thing, and created a whole Elven kit situation. You can get the base skin on it’s own, and then purchase Mesh Teeth, Mesh Ears, Lipsticks and Eyebrows on the side. The Eyebrows and super fun, due to the fact that the colours aren’t the typical colours you find out there. They are perfect for creating and elven or fae look, and should be a new staple for you, going into the upcoming Fantasy Faire season.

Future Self

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Future Self

What would you look like, in the future, in a galaxy far far away?

Soul has released head tendrils as their new offering at We Love Roleplay for April. They come hudded for all the current Soul Skinlines for perfect matching, but they work with Omega Appliers as well, so any skins you own with those should work.

They have nifty glowy patterns, which can be tinted to any colour of your choosing by using the hud.

I decided to wear my new dress from !Chop Shop!, which is a little racy, so I threw on a corset underneath. There are a bunch of colours in the shop, I liked this green one and the gold version the most.

The little glowy stars are from Cole’s Corner. If ever you want a simple way to dress up an outfit, throwing on some particles will do that for you. They aren’t obnoxious, and they give you an extra something something.

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.

I really liked this outfit, and had some time while leisurely eating lunch, so I thought I would post it up. Sometimes it is nice not shooting on location. I think I took 2 minutes to get about 10 shots, crop and put into my blogging template.

Uncomplicated things are a bonus for me today.

PixyStix is going through a rebrand right now, turning their store into simply Stix. They are going to be handling their Event Items a bit differently as well, to make the items more special. You are only going to have 2 weeks after events, to pick up items, before they get retired. This in a sense makes all event items made for Stix, Limited Edition.

The direction of the brand seems to be changing a bit too. I like the new ad look, I just hope she keeps with alternative tones along with the regular skin tones. The new looks seems very mainstream, which I don’t say as a bad thing, I just hope the store stays the store I love.

Check out the new Stix ads HERE.

I am wearing this rather pointy makeup, from Stix, which is out at The Makeover Room. It ends August 26th, so you might want to pop on over. There is more to the makeup series there as well, so check out that link above to see the rest of the offers.

Another thing ending very soon is The Thrift Shop, with the 29th being the last day. I have this fun tank from Paper Moon. It has a wack of colours, there are 4 Hud sets to choose from, and it is half off until the end of the event. While this shirt is totally new and discounted, there are some other Paper Moon items here as well, at a discounted rate.

I think I just ate the Groom

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - I think I just ate the Groom - 1
Disoriented, she crawls out of a damp, dark place.

With her mind still foggy, she tries to make sense of what is going on. She knows it is night, she has a glimmer of recognition as to where she is.

Why exactly she is in the cemetery, laying under the church no less, she has no clue.

She looks down upon herself, noticing the absurd amount of blood on her hands. What has she been doing? She checks over herself, and notices that her clothing is pristine. Not a drop of blood anywhere. While the colours might not suit her tastes(who wears black anyway?), at least she isn’t injured and mucky.

She hears footsteps near the path.

“Hello . . .HELLO! Would you be so kind as to tell me what is going on around here?”

She hears the footsteps scurrying faster.

Out of the shadows they call, “The Mayor’s son has disappeared, his wife-to-be was murdered, they think. They were to be married a few mornings ago, she never arrived. They found a mess at her home, and her parents brutally murdered. I don’t think this is the time, nor the type of night to be out late, my dear, best be going home, while you still can. Weird happenings are always close to this town, the not so Sleepy Hallow.”

The Footsteps sound faster, then go faintly into the night.

She looks at herself again. While the colour seems off, her clothing and adornments do suggest a more formal affair. A familiar sent wafts up from the dried muck on her hands.

She decides to get answers, and starts to weave through the tombstones. She trips over something, lands heavily to the ground, and comes face to face with what is left of a man. Or she things it was a man, given the suit he is wearing.

Most of his neck is savagely torn apart, not leaving much flesh, with the spinal cord glistening in the moonlight. The same scent from her hands assails her, from the dark stain pooling beneath the wound.

Something clicks in her head, and the memories flood in.

“Well, I guess Mama was right after all. I was to lead the life of a spinster, forever alone. She was so surprised about the proposal, when it finally came. Well, I guess it was not meant to be, I think I just ate the Groom.”

“Oh, I have something on my face? Was it over here, did I get it?”

Vampire Chronicles is a new, rather unknown event, that actually ends tomorrow. If you are in need of a few new things, for all your dark, undeadly dealings, please stop on by while you have the chance. Also, keep a watch out for the next round of the event.

Fantasy Gacha Carnival starts it’s new round in a few days, May 12th to be exact. I am so very excited, this rounds themes were mostly right up my alley, so you will be seeing lots on the blog, in the next little while.

Bats by Moonlight

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Bats by Moonlight - 1

Routine daily, lost inside completely
Burning flame, flowing like rain
Still night outside, filled emotions inside
I saw it, the MoonLight

Deep thoughts, thousand quotes
Soaring high above, heavy clouds move
Wandering sight, took flight
I saw it, the MoonLight

Keep this to me, or let the world see
How it feels, desire to love
Her heart, the pure secret
Yes, now I see it, the MoonLight

Random awesome pic I took, whilst playing with my water settings again.

I was playing around with some of my older hairstyles today, as I have had more than a few requests come in lately, asking for them. While putting my new hair textures on some(which will be launched at Hair Fair 2015), I decided it was time for a look.

I ended up transforming into this beauty.

Plastik has been releasing like mad lately. This dress is one of 3 new releases in the mainstore right now. As with all Plastik items, there are a bunch of colours/patterns to choose from.

View the New Releases at the stores Official Site HERE.

This bracelet is also from Plastik, part of a larger jewelry set, which is being sold at this round of Secret Affair. The set is called Mystic Shot, and the various pieces are comprised of Bullet Cartridges with Crystals in them. I can only imagine when they have been spelled with, and what you would have to use them against. These also come in various colours, sold separately, and each pack has 3 metals included.

See the Seraphim Gallery for more info, and view pictures of all the other product available at the event.

Due to my blogging nature on Free*Style, it is sometimes hard NOT to blog free items, haha. So there will be some bleeding over here from time to time. This bracelet is a free gift from Sn@tch, at the Skin Fair. It is a matching set, so there is one for each wrist.

I decided to go to the Cosmopolitan Sales round this month. There are just so many events now, it is not possible for me to get to them all. I actually went for something else, but saw these boots, and had to have them. They have a texture change hud, so you can change the leathers/patterns, as well as the soles, giving you a wide range of possibilities.

View more about this event, and current round, at their Main Site HERE.

Finally, because I wont stop until the event is done, we got Skin Fair stuff on too! These makeups are from Senzafine. They are new, each pack comes with 6 colours, and the Eyeliner Packs have matching Lip Packs. I just did some mixed combos, so you could see a few of the colours.

If you would like to see some more of the colours, or just the packs in general, please visit the Flickr Link HERE, all the Skin Fair packs are at the top.

The Eyes worn throughout the post are a new, mainstore release from Chop Shop. They are called Jaded and are a more realistic styled eye. There are 2 sizes per colouration, in the purchasable packs. The middle me has the smaller size on, the 2 outer mes have the larger size.

View the other colourations HERE.

Blessing the Old into New

Take the old, turn it into something new, spin the light, let my blessing shine. Growth begins, the new season awakes, from below, so above.

This dress from Wimey is really interesting. I picked it up last week, on Fifty Liden Fridays. It is still out, but I am not sure for how long. Wimey is a store I have participated with in a few events, but I can’t say I follow the brand. When looking for other colour options for this dress, I stumbled on their SL Marketplace Store.

It seems the main location is being redone, so when you visit, there really isn’t much for you to look at. If you like the dress, pop on over and grab it for L$50. I will add this one note. The collar is a part of the dress, there is no separate option for it. The rigging is a little wonky, mostly on the left side of the collar. I had to make a special AO, just so I could wear this without it getting all bungled on me. It is a vary minor issue, it might have more to do with my shape, than anything. I have a bit more muscle added to the default sliders.

I’d suggest getting the demo, throwing on some dances and AOs, and see how it works for you. It is a super lovely dress. The skirt part of it has a see-through lace, which has different options on the included hud. It makes for some nifty overlay combinations.

I have a really bad habit of getting things, and not using them for the purposes I intend. This gacha prize from a past round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival is just such an item. Spellbound made this cute Deer Headdress. As a demon, I am naturally drawn to things with horns, so when I take my more human appearance, it is nice to still have the option to have pointy things on my head.

It made me really feel the forest and the fae, so I created a sort of Fae Witch outfit, inspired by these. This is the one rare prize, that you are able to collect. There is another, with a unicorn horn, as well as a bunch of common prizes.

You can see all the options HERE.

***Note – When going to check slurls, I noticed that they just reopened, and everything hasn’t been brought out yet. You can either be patient, or go troll the yardsales, trying to find these. I was not aware at the time of the post, that the store just reopened, and wasn’t done setting up. 2 for 2 in this post, haha.***

Like I said in a previous post, there are a few times a year when I will actually request review packs, as I do actually set aside time to blog those events specifically. Skin Fair is one of those events.

Elysium Eilde was kind enough to not only send me her standard fair pack, but also the few items I specifically requested to feature. I am not one for hearts. I’ve never much felt the need to collect heart things, like some women do. But for some reason these stenciled really called to me, when I first saw them released. They had been on my “Wish List” for a bit, and am thankful she honored my request.

They come in 7 colours (Blue, Green, Grey, Pink, Darker Pink, Purple and Red). There is also a multitude of Appliers(Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP and Omega), as well as the Legacy Tattoo Layers.

While these are not exclusive to Skin Faire 2015, they are a newer release, you just might have missed them.

You can view all the colour options HERE.

Tuli released a new skin line at the fair, and while I will be covering it fully, at some point, in the next little while, I couldn’t resist wearing it.
