Ne-On

Ne-On

Early sneak peak at the great shoes by Fri.day for this coming Collabor88, only days away, so save some of your lindens for that. The heels are for the Slink high feet, and HIGH is an understatement, the heels on these are wickedly sexy, and MUST HAVES! The theme for this round is Miami Electric, and the shoes have that in abundance.

To show them off, I knew that BOOM would not let me down. Firstly I found my own Neon based nails I did for Flair and even though usually not a fan of the purples, I loved the neon orange and purple combination in set 12. So with that in mind, I went and found the violet shorts and tangerine bikini top, and together they are just fun and a fabulous way to sign out of summer.

The hair from Ploom is New for the we <3 RP event that is going on right now, and it has additional strands that come down from it, but this shorty bob, was so cute, and in the violet that matches the shorts, it has that Alias wig thing going on that I love. I took a spin at The Arcade, directly running for the Yummy machine and squeeled with delight at RINGS! they are fabulous royal inspired rings, and you need to just keep on spinning to get as many of them as you can, they are all fabulous.

So run around, get your bits and pieces, and start formulating your go to neon stash – that everyone should have – and prepare yourself for one electric c88 this month.

I love old studies, those really leathery and wood filled rooms, with large leather-bound books and brandy decanters on the trolley bar in the corner. They are in all those old movies and power fueled movies…they are the epitome of success, and this framed map and stone key table from this round of C88 really give that vibe. Adding  a light feminine touch with the vase of beautiful flowers.

I am wearing the NEW Maitreya 80’s jumpsuit that was released yesterday and joy of joys, fits the Slink Physique body really well. The lemon animal print is perfect to go with the new sawtooth flats by L.Warwick that are at this months Uber event, mixing the grey and yellow, with the yellow, black and white.

The jumpsuit has a casual elegance that allows you to wear it with this wonderful gold necklace by Pure Poison, and the flats make it easy to wear day into early night. Add some earrings, some bracelets and some high heels and you would be spending the night dancing until the wee hours.

The hair I have on is the NEW The Arcade style by Exile, and the long tendrils from this stunning french twist style are so cool, it looks as though it is an asymetrical style at first, until you look at it closely, and you are going to want to look at it as close as on your own head.

Whimsy and I decided to share the wonderful fluffy sweaters and divine leather leggings by Emery for this round of Uber. The clothing fits the Slink Physique body without any need for alterations, just the alpha options and I am ready for action. The Shoes I am wearing are from Essenz and are part of the Rock the Rack event. They are platform style but using the mid feet by Slink that makes them just perfect for dancing the night away, and the metal comes in gold or silver accents, so definitely must haves for co-ordinating with your favourite jewellery pieces or even other metal options on clothing such as buttons or zippers.

The hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant and part of Fantasy Collective event and comes with a super sexy tophat that I didn’t wear this time around, but definitely will in the future, as I love me some hathair. So with all these events on and starting up, make sure you pack a lunch and hydrate often, and have a great time exploring the grid.

To see what Whimsy is wearing you will need to visit her great blog at VirtuallyDressed

Diva is the word with this lovely lacey bodysuit by Sn@tch, it comes with system layers and all the appliers this blogger needs, with them having both the underpants and the clothing layers of the Physique body covered. The highneck and long sleeves style had me straight away – but thanks to the left arm right arm toggle option on the Physique hud I was able to make it short sleeved. It was definitely the hotpants style of the lower portion made it an instant MUST HAVE item. I can see this being my new go to run around SL option for a long time. I even played around with some older flexi just for giggles to see if I could turn it into a formal affair, and teamed it up with some dress pants for a sexy business atire look.

But with the Pagan sandals from Bushu, I had to show a lot of leg and these beautiful snakeskin heels that fit the Slink high feet. Bushu is a NEW Brand and the footwear being released so far is excellent, I cannot wait for more. These especially are splendid for all kinds of fashionable combinations, from elegant to casual, because even with a pair of skinny jeans these definitely rock it as snakeskin often does.

Finishing off the look the beautiful long back from the shoulders style by Tableau Vivant that is at this months Collabor88, you don’t have that much time left to get it while the getting is good. The style also comes with a lovely crown, but this is an super sleek style that will be a firm favourite for many I am sure, and with the off the chest style of it, a definite must for those that do a lot of appliers wearing, or just for perfect product photography.

It has been a few weeks since I have done a blog post, and a lot took place. The latest UPDATE to the Slink Physique Body took place, and if you do not have 1.4 you need to get over there and redeliver it so you can have all the new features. There is a full notecard of changes included, and the new hud is a really attractive looking hud, maybe more so because we all get to look at Siddean in her undies.

One of the most saught after updates is the alpha zones now turn off front and back instead of the previous left and right. I have obviously not had as much problem finding clothing that fits with my body, as I have only worn it with everything since the release, so I was doing ok, but this new ability to hide the back definitely opened a whole lot of doors to older items. We also have a few more alpha areas at the waist/bum area, so lower pants are just perfect.

Other features are sheen and droplets, which are making use of the fantastic new abilities to control materials through scripts, that will open up a whole slew of possibilities for creators. There is even an option for clothing details that will mean designers that will want to use added options for realistic looking clothing will be able to do so with the appliers they can create for the body…I am really looking forward to seeing how that works in the future.

Alpha Mask buttons have been also added, which are a work around for the Alpha Sorting (Z fighting) that SL has issues with…giving those that want their tattoos and clothing, or underwear and clothing on different layers to actually work with the help of these additions in the HUD. To use the masks you use the mask that pertains to the upper option of wear – if wearing clothes over tattoos you would use the clothes mask, undies over tattoos, you use the undies mask – the good thing is that you can toggle to your hearts content while you work it all out.

They also added a neck join gradient patch that you wear if you are wearing the SL default head, so that you don’t see a join and you can tint it to match your own skin, this may even come in handy for those that don’t have physique appliers for the body, but find something close enough from another creator, they can tweak the in between – possibly. This time around the neck portion that you wear if you wear the slink head is a separate attachment, this could also come in handy for other heads, not sure on that though, I haven’t taken my Slink Visage off in some time, maybe I will have a play later on and let you know.

Now speaking of heads and bodies, the NEW Visage appliers by Deetalez are the ones I am wearing today, and of course the appliers for hands, feet, and body. The body parts appliers are all in the one location in the store, but the heads have their own area, to avoid confusion for those that have not seen the head light yet :P.

Laura is a stunning face, I am wearing the powder B1 package, that has thinner brows than the B2 package, I actually like them both a lot, and may go back for the other but in the glossy version. You have to pay attention to what you are doing there, as there are B1 Matte and B2 Matte, and then B1 Glossy and B2 Glossy. Then you have eyeshadow mini hud, which has a fantastic smokey eyes, and a catliner look. The main head hud has 5 brown options , one of which is no brows. Then you have freckles and moles option, clear option and an incredible beauty mark look that is very European and striking….then four lipstick options and a natural look. Between all of this it is incredible value as options, and you only have to purchase the body, hands and feet appliers once.

I was scrolling through Zaara’s MP Store and dove into my inventory to find the Sana chintz jacket – we use MP and stores Flickr as visual inventory aids – the jacket fit the body beautifully and even allowed for the wearing of the Natasha bustier underneath, I didn’t even have to go sizes up to fit them, they fit like a dream and minimal alpha needed.

I knew instantly what pants I wanted to wear with them, and I hadn’t tried these with the body yet, but they fit everywhere perfectly except the lower legs. Nothing to do but tweak my shape a little in the leg muscle area, that would have been what my legs looked like without the body anyway as the shape of the pants dictate anyway…so it was as simple as sliding down and Save As name new shape Maitreya pants and I was done.

The colours of everything once the jacket went on were just fated, the shoes by Maitreya that are at this months C88 just brought it all home. These sandals are so Maitreya’s style and just beautifully created, with the beading, the leather work, it is just very much their whole ‘look’. The stitching is phenomenal and I adore the metallic disc work that gives it that tie in to the whole theme of the month.

I wanted some ambience for my picture and grabbed a beautiful chair from Trompe Loeil, which again fated, had the perfectly colouring for my whole ensemble, it didn’t take but a moment to grab the amazing drum set that is featured in our studio by 22769 that I picked up at a past TLC event and just adore so much. I love how soft and earthy everything is, and it really helped bring out the beautiful red in my Wasabi Pills hair that was perfect for the outfit and matched my new brows splendidly.

The background I am using in this post is actually a smaller art print that I have resized and put on the wall. It actually sits at an angle smaller usually, but I just really liked it big and dominating the image. The monochromatic look of it helped with the overall theme of the look, from the wonderful toeless boots, to the marble like texture of my GOD cap/hair.

This is why options are wonderful, you get a lot of choices with the cap, to change the lettering, the colours and then of course those lovely waves of hair. The top I have on is an applier for the Physique body, and it comes also with options of 7 other great colours and is a very easy top to wear with many things, this time I chose my toeless leggings that meant I still got the toeless look of the boots, but the same sort of tight fitted stretchy look with the top.

Changing the metal choice of the gorgeous necklace to silver from gold and I am ready for a dance off, this is such a fun street dancer kind of look, and I am putty when it comes to those kinds of movies, I love them, all the dance movies that change someones life are just the best.

There are some shirts I own, shirts that I would never give up, they are my go to shirts no matter how buried they are in subfolders of subfolders of subfolders. The funny thing about the majority of them, is that they are created by the same designer. Juliette has done it again, I am seriously thinking about just making a JuJu Shirts folder to be done with the other format.

This is her latest must have shirt, with the release of this and the delightful mesh denim skirt that fits neatly underneath. They are both items at Uber, and if you haven’t been you still have much time to do so. I got mine in black, white and Chambray, and eachone has its more beautiful moments to come.

Now as you may have been noticing I do wear the Slink Body full time lately, and this is no exception, but the shirt does not fit perfectly but other than some tiny clipping at the back near the shoulders which hair covers perfectly, I am good to go. The skirt is the same, it is perfectly with the shirt, but there will be some clip through depending on your ao, and my AO’s are far from mild these days, they do all sorts of weird bendy stretchy, turning that I swear I wince in RL just seeing the inhumane way my limbs are treated. So other than that it is all win for me, because it is things I have on causing it, not the items themselves so YAY.

The gorgeous hair is by Exile, and it is just lovely, I especially like the adorable pinned back portion, that you know will just come undone at some stage, and your partner will lovingly pin it back for you … ahuh, that is what is going to happen it is true.

Now down to the footwear, Remarkable Oblivion has made add on Slink shoes, this is incredible news for all the RO fans out there. The design of these is an amazing take on the theme Odyssy… I mean what does one do with all that amazing leather work from uniforms just laying around. They work with the mid feet, but you will need the help of the shoe base included to lift you right up as they are very high platforms and just so fabulously chunky.

I resized the bolt statue from Commoner and it is so cool, it stayed really low prim even making it huge, all win, and so pretty.
