Booty Baby Doll Face

Booty Baby Doll Face

I recently purchased this hair, and one of the things that I noticed and was grateful for on the HUD, were the options for breast size. I do not have overly large ones, but some hair sits much flatter than others. What was also on the HUD was Booty options, bringing the hair away from the rear and I chuckled at that at the time, because it was not needed.

OR SO I THOUGHT! I put on the Hair, as it was worn a lot during the last few weeks, things that are in my recent folder often are.

I put on these incredible boots by Breathe that are their Shoetopia release. Shoetopia is open until the 9th of October and is a Beautiful cross section of Shoe Creators of Second Life. Make sure you visit. The boots are stunners, the fabric makes the colours really rich and luxurious in feel. The laces can be changed in colour, and I like the attention to the back of the thigh having a split that gives you more movement ability, purely a mind thing, but as a shoe lover, it means something to see those additional attentions to realism.

The combination of boots and hair, made me very powerful and from there the addition of this gorgeous baby-doll dress by Tee*fy just tipped the scale right over. Then I did a run around of my look,  everyone should always do that to make sure nothing is where it shouldn’t be, and realised my hair was cutting into my dress. Now normally that would make me either not care too much, when you are a long time in Second Life you tend to let that kind of thing go, or would change my hair…then I remembered the chuckle and grabbed the HUD and turned on the booty option, and lo and behold, it is not just perfect for if you have more going on back there, but it is the perfect option for when your clothing flares out. This is genius, so if you have this hair, try some clothing with it that may do so, and you will get a lot more wear out of your hair.

As far as accessories go, both need a big mention. The choker is by Cynful, and is part of their Andressa gown purchase. It is beautifully done, more detail than expected, and fit like a charm. The gloves are a Gacha by Masoom and I love this set, they are number 7 and I got them first spin. I did continue to play though because they are great to own, and fit my Slink Dynamic hands so well, and you also get Silver & Gold options included, where as you know I am always leaning Silver, but sometimes something else you have only has gold, so you need that back up.

ForMax Event Poster91

Yesterday when taking these pictures I was cammed onto by a friend and the exclamation was ‘ When did that dress get made for bodies?’ much excitement erupted and a quick explanation that it was at ForMax. I had shopped until I dropped, then tpd back at least four more times, because the Fundraiser currently running to help Maxwell Graf is just awesome. Ison has created this stunning cocktail style dress with a beautiful assortment of rich colours. The detailing is superb and it fits snug to the body. I like it because of its structural style, but also because while it is incredibly sexy, it is not so over the top that someone that is not used to dressing up couldn’t feel very comfortable in it.

I am wearing it with the NEWest skin tone in the AlaskaMetro skin range, that is also released at ForMax. Much paler in tone than I usually wear, but as it was the only tone available and for a great cause I jumped on it. It also comes with appliers for all options, so depending on what you wear, you are close to covered. Make sure you demo though so that you know it works how you want it to for whatever head you wear, there are also skins included on system layers. She released a Crimson lipstick pack, and it is various stages of red, even some stains. The very rich red, the pale skin and the navy blue dress with black hair all worked so well for me. I was also lucky that some Ingenue Shoes @ForMax had the same Navy colour as the dress – claps excitedly – so perfect everything was working in my favour.

I was thinking of a red headband for my hair, and searching my inventory I put on this one from Adore&Abhor that I have had for years, that also had a colour HUD but chance would have it was already set to Navy…maybe it is a thing with me. I do think Navy is so complimentary to all hair colours, probably why I have worn it through my many colour choices of hair through my time in SL, but it is also classic and stylish.

The hair is a recent release by Tableau Vivant, and has this nifty strand that is a separate attachment for across the face. I ended up wearing it in the close up for a more movement look, and then removing it for the standing picture, which made sense to me, because it would not stay in place in all movement. It all came together perfectly, and then all I had to do was cam around my platform and find whatever Whimsy has left laying around and voila, instant location…she does this, and it is awesome.

I enjoy watching you leave

I enjoy watching you leave

In movies and sitcoms (usually) you hear people use the expression ‘ I hate to see you go, but I enjoy watching you leave ‘ or variations of the theme. Well, this look definitely brings up that kind of thought process, because when I tried the demo of these shorts and turned my camera around, I was definitely won over by the rear view. The way these shorts have been modelled is perfect, because the rolled up waistband, would literally cause the high lift at the back. Well done Bueno.

The look definitely started with the shoes though, I was over the moon when I first saw them on Facebook a few weeks back, and when I went to get them I realised that the event was closed and that it had been a month? where did September go? They are fantastic runners, so fun and exciting to wear. They come in many fits for different feet and bodies, and the straps and uppers have texture change options. So good, and I love that Daisa of Breathe gives so much range to her footwear, giving us daytime casual, daytime dressy, casual, dressy, formal and more options, that it is impossible to not want it all.

Speaking of Casual to Dressy, this hair by Besom is a messy uppydo, that just translates so well into both styles, be it at the Gym/Studio, or high fashion formal, it works, I like that in an uppydo. It is definitely all about that crossover as this beautiful top by Cynful is part of a Gown release, she liked the top part so much I am guessing that she wanted to give us the option to wear it in other ways,  and I agree, it is perfect and I was over the moon when the Alex harness by Narcisse fit snugly under it and gave me a very different workout look. I love this harness, the buckles at the back and the cute little bow part that isn’t cutesie overload bow, but tailored, very cool indeed. It was made to accompany her Alex underwear set, but can be purchased separately.

I hope you get the chance to workout in these awesome runners by Breathe and run on over to the ForMax event that is happening from Midnight tonight as a Fundraiser for Maxwell Graf. There is information on their Facebook

Andrea for Men – LeLutka Male Head

ManSasy - Andrea - LeLutka Male Head

On the 22nd of September 2017 LeLutka will be tipping over to the Male Side…it has been a very long time since Males have been catered to by these creators, I think March 2009 was the last time, it was a nice day (it was my Birthday that is why I remember). So 8 long years. The wait has been worth it though, as the New Andrea head is packed full of goodness.

He comes with 10 Tableau Vivant skins created for this head. Then you build on him from there, with the brows, the facial hair that is 8 different looks in 5 colours (also tintable), two hairbase options shaved and the one shown which is a hot crew cut type look, also in five colours. You have Makeup layer which unlike the girls is full coverage, and then on top of that tattoos, also full covering, so many options to mix and match.

To do this post I even used the personalise panel to add some darkness under the eyes, very subtle, plus some moles I sent as a texture in the LeLutka for Me group so that people could see how to use the personalise options. The heads come with not only Human teeth, but also Beast teeth, which if you buy the additional huds in the store, can be different fang options as well as bloody etc. The human HUD allows you to change to gap or different colour teeth and so on. Much fun and he looks cute with the gap. If you want to fix the gap, there are also braces.

The heads fit perfectly to the Slink Male body as well as Belleza, but you can check whatever you wear to see if that fits also, as there are full demos to try. Animations of moods and expressions fully loaded, so all you really have to do is just grab the demo and go crazy. I had a lot of fun with the additions I made, and then shopping well that was a whole other thing. Male shopping when you have a partner is hilarious, because I kept liking stuff that I would rather get for Mel than have myself gathering dust, but I am glad I already owned the sneakers I bought at the last Shoetopia, which funnily enough is about to start again next week.

If you are a Female LeLutka head wearer, everything works the same, so you can help out your Male friends if they get confuzzled. Though unlike the Female heads, the Male Hairbase is SL UV so Men can wear their existing hairbases if they have appliers for Omega and until more hairbases and facial hair is made for LeLutka. You can find all the information on how the head will work HERE on the LeLutka website.

You Rang

You Rang

So much going on here today. Narcisse has been releasing some incredible items in events all over the grid. The Kellis set is her release at 4Mesh which is the re-branding of MBA Bi Monthly. The event has changed the way it showcases different mesh, by creating different sections catering to all things Meshy, four of them to be exact, surprised at that aren’t you.

Anyway back to Kellis this gorgeous baby-doll set that I have been tping all over SL in the past two days. I am planning on wearing the baby-doll over regular clothing in future, but for today I went with the alluring and provocative look of the set itself. The options are fantastic, in the singles packs you get the one colour, but you can control the upper and lower parts of the baby-doll with a HUD, so you get solid, polka dot sheer and stripe sheer, I love the stripey sheer as it is not so straight, you can see those here. Now the Fatpack options blow me away, because you get the same combo options, but you get to mix and match all the colours and then on top of the 12 single colours there are a bonus 6 in the fatpack, you will be there for a month trying to get it all worn.

Nothing is more exciting than when creators have similar enough colour palettes in an item that you can do what I have done today, because how awesome is red and this beautiful purple they both have – never thought you would see me say beautiful purple did you, but it has never been all purples I am not a fan of. This one is hot and the red is gorgeous and rich and together they just rock my world. There is more that I love, but I should leave you something to demo, but seriously pay attention to the side of the bust area on the baby-doll I am so in love with it, I want at least three more things made with it, some dresses, a gown and so on.

Now the boots/shoes by Breathe, breath-taking is more like it. These are so sexy, and to find out that you can mix the colours up with the hud was just all win. The combo is a match made in Gorgeous-Town. The shape of the heel is sturdy but fierce, love that, it means at 3am when the cabs change shifts and you cannot find one, the long walk home is something you can handle. The strapping is fantastic, not contorting when bending the leg and everything is just hot, hot, hot.

I totally look suited to this divine set by Cheeky Pea that is aptly named Celebutante. I love the style of it, you can choose from different fabric options, and the day and night combinations are very rich in texture, or you can opt for the black or white. The curtain is perfect as a backdrop too, so if you do a lot of pics, this is a must have.

Now this Hair is sensational, it is by Moon and is at Kustom9 to which I went for a completely different hair, and this one blew me away. The holding part is a separate attachment so you don’t have to look like a sexy Disney Princess if you don’t want. I saw two of the most incredible looking girls at the event wearing it in white with all white clothing and super pale skin and they were twins, they looked amazing, so in the off chance anyone reading this knows them or is them WELL DONE YOU LOOKED AWESOME.

Collabor88 is responsible for all my accessories today, the necklace is by Yummy and is bee inspired which is so adorable, and the rings are stacking bento, and so many options by Amala. Noir made these stacked bracelets too with enough colour change options to go with my colour theme, so thank you for that brilliance.

While at Uber I got the latest ITGirls LeLutka skin called Jean and it is a great skin, usually I go with the summer tone, but opted for the tan this time around as it is spring for us Down Under. In their hud it looks to be that you can only have hairbase options, but tricky them have only applied those to the tattoo layer, so you can turn it off with your LeLutka Head Hud with either the toggle off button or the clear button.

Waiting and Worth It

Waiting and Worth it

I love a good hang out, a build that is not only a beautiful addition to a location,  but in itself provides a whole look. That is the case with the Amelie Pavilion by Trompe Loeil at this round of Collabor88. Not only is the build gorgeous and comes in two versions, one higher than the other so that the land you place it on can be more terraformed if you want that kind of rocky hillside look, but it is also loaded with appropriate to the build, poses. I actually didn’t expect the poses and was greatly surprised because they really look how I wanted to look in my outfit.

I picked up this down jacket at Kustom9 and it comes with a tank, but it was a bit more baring than usual, and when you have the Benny tank by Blueberry, it is kind of a given must wear, especially with the metallic versions, seriously love me some silver. The combination rocks with the jacket, and the new jeans also by Blueberry. These are awesome holey jeans, I do want some without laces – someone make that happen – but these have options for days with laces and metals colours and so many denim varieties.

Even though bordering on the grey and black combo, I did opt for blue denim, because it gave itself more of a chill vibe, were as the black jeans would have been trying too hard for my look this time around…I do love to coordinate though, but this still does that in spades. Now to get some more of these options of colour, I went with the vale koer runners.

These are cute, and I do like the tip toe runners options, or flat, but I do wish that I could choose to left and right, as my Slink feet give me that option, if single owner or deluxe, you can have a left foot flat a right foot high, so it gives more realism to the photo. I do like the options to colour bits and pieces and in that area you can go crazy and do your left different than your right, but that would make me feel like I left the house with the wrong shoes on. I had a boss that did that one night, danced all night in one navy one black shoe, and there was even a slight heel height difference…lesson is put your shoes on before you drink at home before going out.

The hair, oh so much love. This is the Exile style at C88 this round, and the ad is adorable, but in the ad there is a hat, and the hair comes with the hat separate, so there was so much more to love. The braids frame the face beautifully, and its all just so natural and soft, love it!

The other day I had so much scribble on my face, you did not get to see the Fae skin for LeLutka by Izzie’s and you should have, because its so lovely. It comes with and without brow options, different brow colours and eyeshadows and lipsticks. I am however wearing some brow appliers from Adored, because they have a colour that was close enough to the hair that a little tint with the LeLutka head hud, and I was sorted. Go the matchy matchy.

Watch the kid!

You will watch the Kid

When you say you are going to watch the kid, you need to be watching the kid. I use to spend a lot of time with my friends kids, kidnapped some once, you should really tell the parents of kids that you are taking the kids so the parents can sleep in, not just take the kids…didn’t think that one through properly, it was like 6am my brain was damaged.

It is important to watch them, not only for their safety but your own. However, if they want to let their creativity run wild, you should encourage it, just might need some rubbing alcohol handy, or whatever it is that gets texta off (texta is Aussie for Sharpie).

Mutresse released these amazing childhood themed rezzable children for this round of The Arcade, there are so many and they also change on click to different nationalities. There is such a great assortment, but this one just made me run with my own imagination, and also utilise the personalise options on the LeLutka head hud, and the Personal HUD by Slink that lets you just drag and drop textures to your layers.

I am wearing a beautiful new skin applier set by Izzie’s on my head, it is called Fae and if you love the soft features of Izzie’s skins definitely get over there and demo it for your LeLutka heads, it is so lovely and beautifully full lipped and lots of options with the HUD.

I totally dressed for my shoes today, these are at C88 and are by Baiastice, they are AWESOME! I love chunky masculine leaning womens shoes like these, they just let me stomp around and be all cool. They have colour change options with the fatpacks, that just give them so much fun to play with, and the socks are on or off options, but they are so so cute. Mixing the red and olive made for a perfect match to this tartan print on my Pixicat shirt and when I think tartan I think Lapointe & Bastchilde, you really have to play around in my head one day its a marvel.

I shopped hardcore at Hair Fair this year, and I am still to wear all the hair I bought, so I was dying to wear this tram hair ever since I saw it, and Narcisse was wearing it the other day, so I decided to skip over the other 38 folders of hair ahead of it and unpack my tram. It is so cool at the front, but it is the back that took my completely by surprise.

So this whole falling asleep while watching the kid is not my fault, I totally blame Isla and this amazing hamock chair from Cheeky Pea, that is aptly called Bondi. Bondi Beach the main tourist destination of Sydney, the Beach, the cafes and everything about it just exudes this kind of layed back chillin feel, so you see, it is all the chairs fault.
