Meet Stella

Stella

Yesterday was Skinapalooza, with so many fantastic appliers for the LeLutka heads being released – and more to come. One release was done by Izzie’s. Meet Sophee, she is just beautiful, innocent and fresh faced, and for an extra bonus, a sneak peak at one of the COMING SOON LeLutka Heads Stella. So if you have been umming and ahing over the current Aria, Ever and Leda, then Stella, Karin and Lotte are on their way.

Not only does the Sophee skin look lovely on the current heads, but she also radiates on Stella, as shown in my pictures. Sophee comes with a base skin applier, with No Brows and Blonde, Light Brown, Red, Dark Brown and Black brows options, as well as freckles as well. Then a lipstick applier and eyeshadow applier hud…on top of that you can also pick up a FREE gift of a natural lips applier set, or buy an additional eye make up applier hud. So many options to choose from.

Ashia, Whimsy, Justice and I went shopping at Black Fashion Fair yesterday, two trips actually which was fun. We shopped a lot, and then as all good events should do, it found us new stores for our inventories to love. We went to visit some of those stores after, and Lavien had us running from room to room clicking, buy, buy, buy.

The mesh is templates, so you may have seen the items in other stores, and that is fine, it is up to you to decide which store has done the best with the tools they have. I really loved the use of prints and colour in the store, it is these items that I have on, that had options of prints or solids, and I purchased both. Also a big win was that everything fit my Slink Physique body so well, I did though try every demo on to be sure.

The top and bottoms I have on, are actually from two different sets, both definitely worth grabbing as they are beautiful, and have a lot of colour options that are not even shown at the vendors. The necklace I am wearing is another item I picked up at Black Fashion Fair, it is the Meva bands necklace, and every strand is texture change via hud, which just makes it incredibly versatile.

I have no feet on, it is a rarity, but with boots not really needed unless they have cut outs. These boots however do have Slink body compatibility, so they fit really well, just need to hide the parts of the leg not needed. They have a customising hud, that lets you add accents of colour to the various parts of the boots, laces, accents and heels. This worked perfectly since there was a gold option, it allowed a head to toe black and gold look.

The jacket is a huge statement piece, and it does come with a hud also, allowing you to change the colour of the tshirt underneath. It is at the On9 event, and if not still there, you will find it at Gizza. One must allocate a good amount of time for Gizza, because the collections are so beautiful and the store layout so comfortable, that you really feel as though in a department store. Take some friends and you can have hours of fun dressing up, and trying everything on in the place, and going home with loads of delights.

The shorts are by UFO, and those really sweet looking on their own, they really tied in the look. I didn’t want to go with longer pants for this punked out look, and shorts and a leather studded jacket just made me grin…also would look awesome with some ripped tights or garter stockings, maybe another time for me.

Speaking of delights, the 23rd is approaching, and that means NEW Skin appliers for the LeLutka heads. Today I am featuring the beautiful Yvonne by YS&YS. All the great tones you are used to, with the brand new face, and gorgeous make up options. You get a natural looking skin in all brows, then a smoother skin look in all brows, then a freckles option with all brows – also included in all three is a no brows option, if you are partial to a different type.

Then you have 8 eyeshadow applier options, and by using the blend mode slider on the actual LeLutka head hud, you can make them as subtle or full capacity, so this gives you so many looks. Then you have 10 lipstick options, and again the blend, gloss options play a big part in how you will look. At the bottom of the hud, there are 6 hairbases, and with the head hud you can also tint those if needed.

The jewellery I have on is a mix of the Izzies rings I spoke about the other day, and the great Maxi Gossamer pieces from Collabor88 that have options to change the stones and metal, so again the black and gold got to resonate through the look. My Hair was a no brainer, a perfect look for the outfit, and just in time too with it being a C88 release, it is gorgeous…Ashia didn’t take it off for days, she is so in love with it. I went all in with this great texture option in the Grayscale colours hud, and then added a few light strands to the hairbase in PS.

Even Betty wants Veronica

On the 23rd of April, the skinners that were hand picked to create skin appliers for the LeLutka heads will release their items. Today was the day that they have started giving us teasers and looks into what they have created. Today I am showing you Veronica, the skin appliers by Adam n Eve.

Veronica is stand our GORGEOUS! especially on the Ever head, which I am wearing in this post. I love the uplift in the chin, the incredible brows, the strong nose, it all comes together so beautifully. There are brow options, moles and freckles options, glow for a bit of extra highlight, and then the bare face. You also get liner options and lips in gloss and matte. Then she will also have new lipstick and eyeshadow appliers available. I have used the fantastic blend mode in the LeLutka head hud, to lighten the lipstick and then upped the gloss.

I wanted you to see the beauty of an all over Adam n Eve skin, because her bum shading, backs of knees, knees, feet and hands, and of course breasts are always just fabulous. So if you have not already ventured into Adam & Eve territory in the past, or you have and it has been a long time, you need to visit. There are Maitreya and Slink appliers for the bodies, hands and feet, and other appliers for bits and pieces.

I am wearing the Luxuria lingerie, that is a bit naughty in that you can see through it, but with the great alpha mask options on the Slink body hud, I am able to make it not sheer, so I can stay modest. Also wearing the new Midi rings designed by Izzie’s these are awesome, as not only do they come set to the different hand types, but are also mod and you can move each ring on its own, so you can fit to anything. Lastly some hair by Entwined from a visit I took recently after Ashia and Justice tpd me over there.

Mark your calendars for 23rd of April, so that you can get your hands on Veronica too….

When you go shopping, one of the things you need to really look at is Fatpack pricing. Often people are a bit hesistant to even go there, based on previous prices of items they have seen. But sometimes, such as the case with this dress, you find that the fatpack is only the price of just over 2 of the colours, so it is a big old waste of stress standing there deciding what colour you want the most. On the other hand though, even if a fatpack price is a steal, you really need to consider the item as a whole, there is not really a whole lot of need for a very stylised dress in every neon colour it comes in, because some items are such ‘statement’ pieces that it will just end up looking like you are wearing the same thing over and over again, regardless of the colour. So save those lindens for some classic items in more variations, that can really boost your wardrobe.

I decided to make the most of the beautiful gardens at the new LeLutka build, and explore a little. With my Marukin poses from C88 packed into my VR Studio library, so that I can pose anywhere I want to…off I went. The dress is perfect, I felt all at one with nature. Even though the necklace is a punk themed item from C88, it white and silver look works beautifully with the blue and white of the dress. Finishing it all off with the perfect hair from Exile.

Sometimes you get a notice about one thing, and it reminds you a completely different thing, and then all the things come together, to make one big magnificent thing. Such as today, with each step coming together brilliantly to combine these items into a really fun cohesive look. In the end, I realised that I had Alice in Wonderland writing on my paper boat, and that all the blue, and the headband, I had been channeling my inner Alice all along.

This romper/jumper suit is two parts, the great shirt can be worn separately, or has the shading for wearing with the jumper. The jumper would also look great using appliers as a top underneath, but I will let you work out how you will mix and match it all. The fit was great, and everything worked well with my Slink Body.

I am wearing my Slink Visage head Emma today, and really embraced the expressiveness looks, for this great pose. I also got to wear my new Gap teeth, which are an add on item you can purchase at the Slink Store.

My Hair is the latest Red Mint style, and this belted headband look is awesome, I was like WOAH how cool is this hair, and it has a ton of texture options to choose from for the band itself. Belted headband needs bowed shoes, and the Ingenue ones from C88 were just delightful. They work with the Mid feet from Slink, but also have other options, so depending on what you wear, you will most likely be covered.

I got all excited about this pose prop set from Elymode when I saw it at Pose Fair, it has great poses and texture change options, and I am going to just have to rez them all over my little pond at The Deck.

Yesterday was the day I spent running all over the grid checking out hairstores. It is what I do for new stores applying for Hair Fair, and each year it ends up costing me a fortune…this is only because I end up buying so much hair, but also whatever else I find in my travels. Then just as I was done, Ashia and Justice hollered and we did another round of the entire grid – well it felt like it anyway. I had not been to Monso in a while, and we grabbed SySy and went for a fun hour of demoing and buying and standing in one place and talking lots, a real girls day out.

I fell instantly in love with the muffler top I have on, it is drapey, knitted, and just the perfect mix of awesome that one needs to feel fabulous. The jeans are also from Monso, and while Mel is not a lover of drop crotch pants, I had to overrule his not a fan manly-ness, with my own, I am a girly and I loves them-ness. the big win, was that even though not made for the Slink body, they fit to perfection, and the alphas needed perfectly align for my shape.

Mixing in some items from this round of Collabor88, we have the beautiful divider from The Loft, and this great stool from Kuro & Consignment. Honestly between them both, with the packaging the items come in, I could open a warehouse, it is so great. I am also wearing hair by Tableau Vivant that is just lovely, swept back from one shoulder, and carried forward on the other…I felt in the mood for a little something more, so the addition of this cool bindi I found on MP did the trick.

It is POSE FAIR time of the year again, and I am so excited about it because it is the release of the VR Studio 4.2 . I am fortunate enough with Whimsy and our other friends to be the Beta testers for this system, and every new feature just has me in awe. I am able to use it for so many things other than just posing myself. I can pose others, wear the Mobile Library hud to locations that do not allow rezzing, and pose myself, or even better I can pose others. Then I have all the other incredible features, including lights, and rotation without moving the stand, an awesome backdrop and so many other great things.
The most amazing NEW feature is the Focus Aid…it gives you the incredible gift of making depth of field so much easier to use. I have taken a few shots with this this week, and honestly, the difference and ease of it is remarkable. You can see all the features and information on the whole system HERE on the VR Studio website. You will be able to get yours at Pose Fair, and I have used the VR Studio for 6.5 years now, and I could not survive without it. I even use the camera lock features to send notices from my subscribo in the store,  from 2000+ metres in the sky. There is also an amazing projector pack at the event, that you can inject into your studio, and if you already have the VR Studio, updates are free.

I took a quick set of pics earlier today, while trying all the fun new features, plus I was looking awesome with my Urbanista look of the day. The pants I fell in love with from Gizza, the texturing on them is amazing. The top is from a store that Whimsy found called Miss Chelsea. It is actually from the same creators as JD shoes, and the fit is fantastic as it comes with Slink fitted mesh options for my body, no alpha needed on some items, but some do need a little something, but it all works great. The fab glasses are a new item from Livalle, great aviator lenses that you can tint and colour change the frames to many colour options on the hud.
