Under my skin

Standard

I never did a skin review, and i´m so new at this i even gave it a obviously punny title, something i seem to have got going on lately, but pardon me because it is my first please.

Today i bring some bad news and some good news, and as usual at least when it happens to me in real life i ask please hit me with the bad news first, so here it is, sadly Nomine, just release their last non-fantasy skin, it´s called The Nephilim line, and it´s perfcet for those who like me in rl are sun-challenged, this set of very pale skins will be the last and the same will happen to the male skins also.

Now this is the bit where i bring in the good news, right? And those are that Nomine will be only making Fantasy skins from now on, so at the end of the day Munchflower Zaius, is simply focusing on what she does best, which is work on fantasy items, and that´s pretty awesome news.

Anyways back to the skin, i tried to show as much has possible to show all that is available for the skin, the 5 beautiful pale tones, from an almost pure white to the still pale but human, and the wide range of makeups available, that go from the usual bare, to a more sci-fi, fantasy or sexy look.

So anyways drop in at Nomine store and try a demo if not just to say goodbye to the store´s last human skin, in the mean while fantasy reigns, and will be out soon i´m sure.

… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

Standard

The title of today´s blog is part of a quote, by a comedian i admire a lot, Joanna Lumley, and the full quote goes like this:

I find it a great antidote… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

And today i bring you all of them, lipstick is the most important one today probably and part of a blogger challenge started by Cajsa Lilliehook,  so for it i picked this pretty skin from essences available at  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, and one of the several lipstick options that come with it. I also bring you a lot of Hairspray in this new Clawtooth, hair made specially for COLLABOR88 .

Also from COLLABOR88 are these gorgeous shoes from Ingenue (available in several colours)  and the lovely dress by Schadenfreude ( available in a wide diversity of patterns, and sizes, including kid size).

And last  but not least mirrors, the thing about mirrors is, it´s fine when you hold up them to yourself, to admire your look, to look for faults in it, but with what i do have issues, is when people insist on holding up mirrors to others expecting to see their own reflection.

So i would love to see a lot less mirrors about at the end of the day,  a mirror only reflects what is there, not your wishes, and reflecting your wishes on others, steals them of their own reflection, making all those holding mirrors look foolish.

And this long rant is basically about feeling good about oneself, wearing what we love, what we choose, and not being held hostage to the mirrors other wave at us.

Skin: essences – Rowena (CHIC²)

Rompers

Standard

Well the weather slowly get´s warmer, and it´s time for more casual or not so casual clothes and footwear. Today i bring you two amazing examples of that.

First the recently release coldLogic´s  line of rompers, they come in six different models, each model available in several colours, and they are all different from each other, so you can achieve looks that range from, beachy, sporty, casual, to sexy, or a semi formal look that can be used anywhere with the right accessorizing.

I must admit i´ve been too lost in events to do some actual shop blogging, and i had never actually blogged coldLogic, when i even own a few pieces, and i simply love these rompers.

Another amazing piece that is a total must in anyone´s inventory, are feet, and my favourites which i´ve already blogged a few times are Slink´s mesh Feet, but now you will be seeing them a lot more, the feet and the sandals, because these sandals work with almost everything i have in my inventory, jeans, a dress, a skirt a bathing suit, and rompers also, again another super versatile item and a must for summer, perfect for  a beach look, simply casual or a more dressy one as an alternative to heels.

Also added to the mix some newer releases, from WaterWorks (the sunglasses), and two new Wasabi Pills hairstyles, same not so new ploom poses i bought at the My Attic event first edition, and some more of Long Awkward Pose, poses who´s closing sale is still going on.

Now excuse me while i go enjoy SL´s beaches, see you all soon.

ETA: I was asked by several people on plurk where i took the pics and about some of the furniture, so here it is:

Greenhouse on background by Organica – Eugene reading house (to answer another question i tinted some parts of it, the draping, the wood and the glass, by simply using select face and picking the right tone). Chairs, small bench and decor on top of bench by Sway´s  – Sway’s Deckchair, both Home and Garden Expo items.

HUNT ALL THE MESH

Standard

Because Mesh Around is starting today at SL´s noon, and i bring you another small preview of some of the items available during at the hunt, since SL was not very kind to me yesterday, I only managed to take one picture, but it has not one but two Ely´s in it.

And so today i bring you: GeometryBilo[GoS]Trompe Loeil and [HANDverk].

For some flowy summer prettiness, two love sets, one a dress from Bilo, which you know how much i love, and the other, a set of two separates: skirt and blouse, that you can either mix and match with other Geometry separates, which i heard there will be more available pretty soon, or with casual jeans or even system layers.

And now let me talk about these pumps, I wish more shoe creators would enter hunts, not enough do to be honest, and it´s such a wonderful way to show of your designs, specially when the quality is so at a top-level like this.

I don´t think i´ve mentioned yet how much i love furniture in mesh, but i will now, first reason is more detail for less prims, both the furniture set by Trompe Loeil and this lovely clock by [HANDverk] are mesh and so easy to mod, for the picture i did some moding to them, i resized the clock to bigger and resized the table to smaller and also took out he shadow parts on the furniture.

And here is the second reason i love mesh furniture even more, resizing it will even lower it´s land impact values, making it the best option for tiny avatars and petite ones.
So remenber folks at noon the hunt starts, so make sure you are ready to run around the grid looking for meshy goodness, and in case you are wondering what else is available on the hunt rememnber to check out my fellow bloggers from The Ego Co.

I sure am getting ready for Mesh Around, as I slowly get a glimpse of the items that will be available on the 1st of  June when the hunt starts.
