Vintage Wine

So, I’ve been wanting to wear this new blazer from Coco ever since I picked it up from Shiny Shabby last week, but I’ve been biding my time, waiting for the perfect pieces to pair it with. Then, finally, I managed to get into Collabor88 and there were these shoes. And it was fate.

The new Ingrid pumps from Pure Poison are by far one of my new favorite pairs of shoes. I love quirky details and colors and when I saw that a thirteen color HUD was included for less than the price (L$188) of a decent pair of shoes, I was tickled pink. Even better than the price, are the color options and the fade (beige, purple, navy) that I am wearing oh so perfectly matched the vintage wine colored blazer I opted for.

Pose Fair 2015

It’s that time of year again and as many of you know, I am a staff blogger for the Hottie Cooterati Experience and so, while I’ll be blogging some of the awesome poses I’ve gathered at Pose Fair here, my main coverage will be on the ‘Official Blog.’

I’ve already blogged favorites such as Black Tulip, Little Moments, RoLu and even my first video for the new AO from Fruct0se! There’s plenty more to be had, so be sure to follow up all of the great bloggers linked in to Pose Fair, which opens April 11th!

Mesh Heads @ LeLutka

So, the big day has finally arrived for the premiere release of LeLutka’s new mesh heads! It’s been a long time in coming for a well-known brand to finally be releasing a mesh head that has so many features, and at a reasonable price! As much as I love my mesh head from the Shops, for a lot of shoppers, the 5k price tag isn’t exactly eye catching. Nevertheless, I decided to hop on over to grab some demos of the new heads, as well as the corresponding skins from Glam Affair. That the Maitreya mesh body is also in collaboration with these two- I admit I was super excited to see how things turned out!

So, I arrived home and began trying on the heads and mixing and matching the skins of Aria, Ever and Leda to see what kinds of looks I can come up with. I can honestly say that I love the HUD and all of the options capable with these mesh heads. The makeup tinting and additions, hair-bases, open/close eyes and mouth and even hiding the ears are all outstanding features. I also love that the sliders for face length actually work, because for some reason I could not make them adjust with my Mesh Project head at all. Though, that could just be me. So while I have hardly a criticism for all of the offered features. I do, however, have a few for the overall look.

To be perfectly honest, I was underwhelmed by the overall look of these three heads. Now, don’t get me wrong- while the execution is spot on and the quality is outstanding, the overall appearance of the trio are simply not to my liking. My observation? Drag queens meet boy band. The chin and jaw lines have little to no difference between one another and hardly any definition at all. The face is too long, for my liking, even when adjusting the sliders. Almost as if the overall face is too large for the features, but then again that could probably be attributed to the lower half of the face. The eyes are lovely, but the lashes, while mesh and of a great fit, are individual prims, which have turned me off lashes from LeLutka in the past, as they often appear jagged and are not the most photogenic attachments unless you are doing close ups. I also feel that from a frontal perspective, they have hardly any curvature and extend straight down and up, which make the eye appear tired.

All in all, the LeLutka mesh heads offer a full on mesh look for literally half of the price of the Mesh Project. The features are abundant and have great customization for makeup, lashes and hairbases. The downfall of the head though is definitely in that it cannot be used with the SL default avatar. Yes, I know, the default avatar will almost seem obsolete eventually, but there are just too many things that even the best mesh body cannot accommodate at the moment, that make the LeLutka head unusable for those not willing to wear a mesh body to go with it.

So,while ease of operation, quality and features I give these new mesh heads an A, the overall designs gains, perhaps, a solid C+ from me. Of course, I will continue to play around with it, as I have a feeling that with a few hours worth of adjustments and mixing and mashing, something great can happen.

On a side note, the new LeLutka mainstore is gorgeous, so definitely be sure to admire the new build while trying these mesh heads on and forming your own opinion. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments!

Cirque de Seraphim

On the Wings of Love

So here I am playing at Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love while joy-riding on my legendary steed, Pegasus. Never-mind the fact that he left behind the rest of his friends from the one of the prettiest carousels I’ve ever seen. As part of the new, upcoming September round of the Arcade, Eku Zhong has created a mythical team of horses, including four commons of each Pegasus, Unicorns and Hippocamps. There are also three ‘RARE’ carousels to be won as well.

The Arcade opens in just three days time, so start saving now- you’re gonna need it!

Ice Bucket Challenge

One of the latest trends to take social media by storm is the ‘ice bucket challenge,’ an internet sensation that has helped raise mass awareness for ALS. In fact, everywhere we look- celebrities and locals alike are challenging each other to donate to the cause and/or brave the foreboding bucket of ice water. Although in these summer months, ice water may not be such a bad thing after all. Nevertheless, do your part- donate to ALS!

I’ve decided to do a SL version of the ice bucket challenge to commemorate Meme Monday, which I haven’t had a chance to do in a while and so, by accepting and (yes, I’ve donated!) taking the challenge, I in turn challenge all of you to take the plunge into icy goodness! ♥

No Escape

If you think you are free, there’s no escape.

As soon as I saw this new release from Gizza, I knew I had to portray the bad girl persona- complete with smoking gun. I even had a blast coming up with the perfect pose, which can be found soon as part of a pose pack I am working on.

So, Glamistry has released Anemuna, a new pair of heels for the SLink high feet and as always, I am amazed by the quality of these shoes. I also love that with just the purchase of one color option at a great price, you also get the white option free. Free shoes- I mean, what girl does not love that?

I admit, I was a bit bummed out to learn that the Glam Card was canceled. I didn’t find it at all difficult to understand, though for newcomers to SL, it might have been a bit of a struggle. Nevertheless, the shoes (and SLink add-on to boot!) are flawless and well worth a trip to the mainstore. One can only hope that Glamistry (and whichever alias he/she might have- just sayin’) will be snagging a booth at some of our favorite events!
