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) :

Plaid, Please

It’s sweater weather! Well, in theory. And definitely not here in Florida. But for me, September is the start of it all! Addams has released this new loose sweater in assorted color packs (solid, plaid, ombre, splotch) and the tones of this particular pattern are definitely rocking the Fall 2018 Pantone color palette. I’ve really been on a plaid kick in RL and so I went straight for that pack. I’ll admit that at first, I was iffy on the red and purple together, but it totally works and adding the new studded boots from Reign really added to the ‘wow’ factor.

Glam Affair has also released a new skin for LeLutka Heads. I am wearing Trecy in Tone 6. I still miss my old America tones, but I am really enjoying the variations in the new tones for seasons, as well as all of the new features. Can you say, hello contour!? Anyway, check out these lips on Trecy! As soon as I saw the ad, I was hooked. She is definitely my new favorite! What do you think of the new tones?

Ice Cream Dreams

I had a pretty crazy week at work and so I didn’t have much of a chance to post before the end of my week. I always feel like I am behind when it’s been too long between posts, but of course we have to take the good with the bad, right?

Ever since I picked up the new props for LeLutka mesh heads, I haven’t been able to put them down. In fact, they were the first items to go into my ‘favorites’ folder that is included with the new Firestorm update. You can read more about that here.

The ‘Oral Fixation’ line is available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, where you can pick up the animated versions of a lollipop, bubble gum, cotton candy and yes, even ice cream. As you can tell from the HUDs shown below, there are so many options for each treat, including color changing parts, messy face details, multiple animations and static poses.

This Bad Girl

Bad Girl

It’s been a crazy busy week for me, so I don’t have much to report on today, but I did want to squeeze at least one post in before the end of the week.

I am loving this set by Pseudo, at Kustom9. I am not really sure what to classify it as- lingerie or swimsuit, so I added some combat style boots, visor and hair from Foxy and dared to hit the streets as is. I haven’t received any complaints so far!

Glam Affair has also released new skin ‘Patty’ for Uber. I am still in the air about the new tones. I love them, but my heart still beats for ‘America’ from the previous releases; however, an awesome trade off is all the new makeups, lashes, eye-shadows, brows and even contours for the new skins. Winner winner! I am wearing Patty, tone 6, with contour and red lipstick from set 8, at the mainstore. I am also loving the fierce arch of these brows!

Lady in Red

Lady in Red

I honestly believe that for every little black dress, every girl should also have a little red one in her closet. There is something sexy and brazen and assertive about the color, so why not make it a wardrobe staple? And really, with so many different hues of red, it’s a color that can look great on anyone.

Osmia has this new Jasmine dress around for Kustom9. It’s silk, and short and a bit revealing and yes, it has red! I couldn’t let all of this skin baring sexiness go to waste, so I paired it with new release Tisha hair from Phoenix, which is available at the mainstore for faMESHed go. I love the wavy, crimped curls! Tisha also comes with a HUD that includes two different bangs options, as well as single or double buns.

Island Vibes

Lyrics

I love living in Florida. Even though I was born and mostly raised up North, I’ve since been converted to a hot weather and sunshine kind of girl. Give me the beach and laid back lifestyle over the snowy city any day. Even when it comes time for a vacation, I’d still rather go somewhere warm and tropical, preferably an island- as opposed to luxury cities like Paris or skiing in Colorado. What is your favorite vacation spot?

Bright and tropical colors are also my thing. I wear black from time to time, or rich jewel-toned colors- but even in my RL, I am in love with bright colors and tropical or floral prints. Tank tops, flip flops- you name it.

I don’t typically wear a lot of orange or pink in SL, but I do enjoy the combination of these colors, especially when I am in a tropical mood. When I saw this shirt from Boys to the Bone at last months round of Equal10, it stuck in my mind and so when I picked up these new releases from Blueberry, I ran straight to the BTTB mainstore to make a match. My piled high updo from Tableau Vivant (have you checked out their new hairbases yet?) reminds me that I still have a few more days of my vacation left to enjoy.

Last but not least, Hello Dave has some bright, Summery nail polish for the new group gift. I totally owe it to my girl Naughty for turning me on to Maia’s designs. I’ve been in love ever since. I love you, girl! <3
