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) :

On the Edge

I am loving the edgy couture of this outfit. I am not even going to talk about how much I spent trying to get these boots from Dirty Princess at the Epiphany. The dress from Nerido is short and sexy and softens the black leather jacket from Coco and my hair from Navy & Copper gives me these amazing teased bangs straight out of the 80s. Perfection <3

Mint Chocolate

Not only is plaid the go to pattern this season, but I didn’t realize how much I would love the mint and brown combination of it until I tried on this new dress from Tetra. It’s available in 15 colors at 288L$ each , or you can buy the plaid pack with 10 options for 688$L. Each version also includes a transparency option for up to 20%.

I haven’t worn my Simone bento head in quite some time, until Glam Affair released Aradia, for Access. I tried her on my usual Greer and though she still looks lovely, I have to admit that Simone really is a perfect fit. While she was never my first choice before now (the base lip shape just didn’t do it for me,) I will definitely be wearing this head/skin combination more often! I mean, look at those lips!

What are some of your favorite mesh head/skin combinations? I’d love to see them!

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?

Live Fast, Live Hard

The Arcade has rolled out all sorts of new releases for September! I am even more excited that there are a lot of wearables this round, as well as a good mix of Summer and the soon-to-be Fall gachas.

The title of my post so perfectly describes my RL lately, extremely busy, but you’ll see lots more posts coming soon! On top of that, Hurricane season is upon us and while we’ve been lucky here in Florida so far, I hope all of you on the East Coast stay safe! <3
