Even Betty wants Veronica

Veronica 1

Veronica 2

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.

Need a belt?

Need a Belt?

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.

Happy Birthday Whimsy Winx

So on our whirl wind birthday tour, we hit a lot of stores and events, while Whimsy played busdriver. We often do that, delegate who has to be the one that does all the tping of our little band of shoppers, usually it is me because I tend to lack patience waiting, and usually find that Whimsy got distracted on her way from the website with the slurls, to my IM box.

It has been a great week so far, with the release of the LeLutka Mesh Heads, and that incredible New build. If you haven’t been over there yet and explored it all, you are really missing out.

I have been having a great time with the LeLutka heads, especially playing with the head hud. Not only does it control the main features of wearing your skin, but it also does a lot more, you just have to know how to use it, and it is very intuitive. All shimmers and Gloss effects are only visible when using the Advanced Lighting Model option in Preferences (Ctrl + P) then your graphics tab. You can choose to turn it on and use the None option on the dropdown beneath it to not actually have your shadows in play, just to see the glossy looks without it being too hard to render everything else.

Section 1

On the top of the hud you have the controls for the head itself… pretty simple really, mouth closed or open, eyes the same, ears hiding or showing – which is either great for wearing other ears, such as the brilliant ones from Mandala, or turning them off because they poke through a hairstyle you are wearing. Then you have the blink on/off options, so that you don’t blink through a photo, or just because you want to wear someone elses mesh lashes and as you cannot get those to blink with the head, stopping the blink makes it work perfectly.

Then you have the necksize, so 0 works great with the Maitreya body, as do the other sizes, as I do believe they are all the same, or you use 5 for the Slink physique body, as both are a great fit for the head. They could work for the others out there, but those two are the ones that they know do work, and as I am wearing the Slink in all my posts this past week, you know that is true.

Section 2

Next section is the skin tones, and the shimmer (specular/normals) for the head. So the ten skin tones used are the ones that Glam Affair makes, perfect fit with the Maitreya body, as they come with the same tones in their HUD and you can buy the appliers for the Slink body. So once you have your skin tone ready, and the face of course – there is a different face for each of the heads, you can actually mix and match the head huds, or appliers. Then you have a shimmer slider, a slider which is so cool just being slidable, which increases or decreases the shimmer on your skin, which is like a lovely shine effect. This is the default specular maps for the head, which may be replaced with other shimmer effects once other creators start releasing huds. You can remove the effect with the Remove button, and Restore with the Restore button – Restore will bring you back to the original default, if you have used something else.

Section 3

Eyeshadows area…right now there aren’t any separate eyeshadow appliers, other than the ones included with the head itself, but they are wonderful. You use the Show or Hide buttons, they do the function they are named for. Then you have the Blend and Shimmer sliders. Blend is my all time favourite slider, on both this section and the next. The Blend slider controls how much of the texture is seen…so if you have a really strong Green eyeshadow for instance, that is like super heavy for night time looks, you can use the Blend slider, and decrease its opacity and create your own early evening, or day time shadow look…BRILLIANT!  Then you have Shimmer, again like the above it has its own default that you can Restore or Remove, and when you use it you will see the increase in the shine to the eye area. You can also choose to not have the shimmer on by sliding the slider all the way down, but keeping the Blend all the way up, different looks whatever way you use it.

Take Note: Some skin appliers will have makeup included on the skin applier itself, you cannot control those layers with the blend or shimmer/gloss sliders. 

Section 4

Lashes, two types pretty straight forward, you just toggle between them. You can also turn them off, to wear other lashes you may be more in love with…but remember to turn off your blink, or you will look a little odd. Then below that you will see a Tint Lashes option, an arrow that opens a panel that has a colour picker you can go to town with. Create so many different colours you like.

To the right of that you have the hairbase option. Included with the head package is a hairbase hud. Once you wear that and choose the hairbase you want to wear, you may need to use the SHOW button on the Head Hud. You can turn it off with the Hide button, and then below again a drop down colour picker, and you can tint the hairbase to match other hair you have, or possibly rock out some great colours and match your tinted lashes to them.

Section 5 

Now you have gotten together your look of awesomeness, and you are about to be tpd somewhere where you have to look completely different…do not despair, the 5 save preset slots are here. On the left of the hud, you have an arrow to click and out pops 5 shiny buttons. Got your whole look together? skin base, eyeshadow, lipstick and shimmers and glosses all where you want them…then you tinted your lashes and hair base and you look fabulous! Now left click and hold down on one of the presets and it is saved for when you want that look again. You could make up day and night looks, and just toggle between them. Run out of spaces you can either save over them by holding down on them again, and a drop down will ask if you want to save over it, or you can make a copy of the hud and save another 5 on that.

If any of this confuses you, you can click on the ? button at the top of the hud and get zoomed on over to the website where there is a FAQ.

For those wanting to know, the make up appliers kits will be available at LeLutka from the 6th of April, and the handpicked skin creators will be releasing a little while after that.

So I was out shopping as I said, and the lighting and everything over at Kustom9 looked great, so I put on my VR Studio Library, already packed with my Marukin poses from C88, and posed away. I love that thing, that and the VR Studio and Hud, are my everything.

My Attic is about to close up for another session on the 31st, so you need to make sure you get on over and take advantage of the incredible items. I am wearing one of the beautiful vintage inspired dresses by Dead Dollz, there are three colours to choose from, and they are all superb. The fit is also excellent with my body I just had to turn off my legs and midsection with the Slink Physique alpha hud and I was ready to go.

I am very excited that the new LeLutka heads are coming, and that everyone will get to experience them soon…but also the build, which is just magnificent. I will do more on how the heads actually work closer to release, as I wanted to be sure nothing was going to change on the information from when I first got the heads, as they were still in beta stage.

The gorgeous shoes I am wearing are at Uber by Pure Poison and not only come in different versions for Maitreya and Slink but also mid and high versions, in case you do not have one or the other, how cool is that. Equally awesome is this lovely full bodied hairstyle by Exile, love the waves and just felt it needed me to be blonde in it.
