Rogue

I tried the new Genus Project bento head when it first came out and for as long as I fiddled with and tweaked my shape, I couldn’t seem to get it just right. Now, as I’ve been wanting to incorporate another mesh- take two. I started experimenting with various skins and makeups and finally ended up with this stunning combination, and one of my new favorite looks.

Roxy is by Glam Affair and was actually released back in July, around the time that the brand underwent some major changes in their skins. I am so glad I went back and found her because as you can see, she is perfect. I did pair the look with the the nude lipstick from the Jessica gacha by Genus, but it really ties the whole look together.

If you haven’t at least tried a demo of this mesh head, you should. While it is still in it’s Beta stage you can grab the full product for 3,000L$, with a free upgrade to the future full version. If not, the full version with end up costing you 5,500L$. As I’ve always been a huge fan of Genesis Lab mesh heads before this change, I think that this price is a steal. There was even a recent update on 10/31, which includes:

  • Neckline issues as well as tinting options
  • Skin tinting options
  • Hide button for the lacrimal
  • Two sizes of the main HUD
  • Separate eye move/resize texture options

Of course, while it is still going through the beta stage there isn’t as big a market for Genus appliers just yet, but you can still find some skins available at a few stores, including (not a complete list) :

Annabelle

With Halloween just around the corner, there are lots of creepy – and bloody – new releases hitting the grid. In case you haven’t heard, the Arcade has even opened with a specialty pop-up round dedicated to October and yes, Halloween! There are lots of bloody inspired gachas to grab here and at the Epiphany, just in time!

Aida has released some amazing new Glam Affair skins for both LeLutka and Catwa heads for the two events. This Annabelle inspired dollface is horrifyingly good and ties my whole look together!

What is your favorite part of Halloween? Do you celebrate? I would love to see all of your creepy outfits and costumes as we get closer to the big day!

Welcome to the Jungle

Living in Florida, one kind of has to enjoy the tropical side of things. For me, it’s all encompassing. Tropical, jungle, beachy, you name it. The colors, the vibe and the feeling of relaxation I get when I’m surrounded by the nature of it all. Even my homes in both worlds are tropical inspired!

With that being said, it’s the 7th anniversary of Collabor88 and I am completed tickled by the ‘Rainforest’ theme of this round. With extra designers to celebrate, I found tons of gorgeous new pieces for my already overloaded SL inventory.

Osmia has released a sexy summer bikini with optional on/off sleeves and the top provides the perfect pairing to the shorts from Belle Epoque. Tropical rings from Astralia and my headpiece from LaGyo are a match made for the islands and added the perfect pop of red against all of this lush greenery.

I am also loving all of the new releases from Glam Affair. ‘Apple’ is available in the mainstore, and the fierce and thick brows are a statement all on their own.

Call of the Wild

Africa

I went out exploring Roy Mildor’s Devin sim, which has this amazing Serengeti scene set up. It was the perfect backdrop for the new Safari gacha from Osmia, available tomorrow at the Epiphany. If you haven’t been yet, don’t forget to teleport to the various areas. I would love to see your pictures!

I finally went out and got another Catwa head, even though I told myself I wasn’t because I feel that they are definitely over-priced for the commonness of them. But anyway, I got stuck on Magy. Even though she isn’t one of the newer releases, I still felt that I was able to keep true to my style and the features that I liked compared to some of the others. And, of course, because she looks beautiful with all of the new Glam Affair skins that were just recently released.

I talked about the new releases in my blog post here, but I wanted to give you all a look at the Catwa versions. One thing I do love, is that I can wear both the new contour (available with each skin) plus various sets of freckles or moles.

And finally, Navy&Copper had this new release out for Summerfest ’18, which we all know is my favorite yearly event. I love the short hairstyle with bun in the back, that ended up being perfect for wearing with this scarf and setting out on new adventures.

Havana Nights

Havana

I’ve totally had some Latin fever going on this Summer. I was watching the second Dirty Dancing movie just the other day and of course the hit song by Camila Cabello has been lighting up every other station since it’s debut. I can’t seem to escape it.

So I’ve been looking for an outfit that could feed this Latin heat and of course, Tetra and Ison had to go and collaborate on this gorgeous new top and skirt combo. It definitely makes me want to get up and salsa.

In fact, I think it would be great to see a whole lot more collaboration from designers for well… Collabor88. Makes sense, no? I’d love to hear who you think should do a collaboration together!
