More than the Truth

A Few things today , so TRUTH is having a SALE , a Discontinue Sale to be precise – so yes that means I got in his IM box and chucked a tanty, regardless though its a SALE you really need to attend lol – it’s ok he loves me, he knows I’m upset he is discontinuing and not Onrez’ing, but he did say next time he will.

Now that I have that out of my system, and its documented so he cant forget next time :P.

The SALE is on ALL Hair as he is changing up his textures, and ALL Clothing – NOT Shoes, Skins or Tats- I have most of the clothes and hair , so today I went and got one thing I have coveted for a long time. The HITMAN Suit.

Now I am not into blood on clothes, sorry regardless of theme I just cant bring myself to shoot my body blood spattered BUT it is a fabulous suit with and without the blood, it’s a bit of a giggle really and would look fab in a film or photoshoot, so hmmmm maybe one day I will bloody up – maybe next time Truth doesnt Onrez Mwahahahahaha I’ll chase him around his island with an axe .

Sorry, when I talk about Truth Hawks I spend the whole time in gigglefits he is just that Funna.

The Hitman Suit comes with tucked and untucked shirts , as well as the fantastic open jacket and pants , and that yummy prim tie – I had to do a little bit of editing on that around the neck. I also am wearing it with the Veruca Salt Cami in stripes underneath so you can see that yes this is a suit you will find many uses for, Mens suits look fabulous on Women as I have said a billion times in the last few years , and at 125L this one is wonderful.

Also from TRUTH and NOT on sale is the Huntress Boots , I am wearing only the foot part for easy fit under the pants legs, and with the wedge style heel they make great getaway shoes, the skin is Arcane Liquid Skin in Latte Vamp make up , also available at TRUTH and such a gorgeous skin, so grab the DEMOS while you are there for the SALE.

Polly the hair IS on SALE and its one of my favourite styles by TRUTH if THAT style is discontinued there WILL be an Axe in his future – only coz I loves him does he get this much of my crazy – The fabulous Glasses are from Dark Mouse and are the Catty Eye Sunglasses.

The Kitty Ears are by The Sweetest Sin I just adore them and the little panels on the back I have changed to say Mels with a texture, I couldn’t resist, so if you ever see me with them on , they don’t come that way.

Some other things I have meant to show for awhile, are the fab not so new now skins by M&R , this was a collab between RoseMar and ♥ Cupcakes which has now turned into ONE BIG STORE, yes Mimi Coral and Rosemary Galbraith are now one big store at the Popfuzz sim.

The NEW store name is M&R Cupcakes and as its pretty much the same location you wont have any trouble finding it if you use landmarks from either of the older stores.

The Birthday Suit skins are just lovely I am wearing the Cameo Tone and they have freckles or no freckles and shaved and not shaved versions, and the glimmer make up I am wearing in the pics is soft and lovely, but striking enough to move into nighttime.

I am also wearing the Lya Acacia Swim Suits, wonderful plunging fullpiece swimsuits in a variety of gradient style colours.

I love this retro style of looking full at the front but more like a bikini at the back, this is more of a swimming suit as well as a stroll around with a sarong draped around your hips or a pair of your favourite shorts kind of resort look, mucho love for this style.

The hair is a new release from Magika the Pretzel style is just so funna too, I couldn’t resist.

Teleport to the Stores:

Oh My Goodness


When you get an IM from a creator saying ‘thank you for the inspiration’, you get all excited in both Phils Place and your own.

Thats how it was the other day when following a delivery of the New Sin Skins 2.0 by Portia Sin, I got an IM from the Designer herself – while I was trying to find her in search to say thank you .

Now this baffled me completely, how did I inspire something by Portia , we had never spoken before that day, and as far as I knew the Sin Skins 2.0 had been in development for a while.

When I queried Portia told me I would see, as I was not at home I had to wait a few mins before I could go and look, and when I did I laughed and laughed- again in both places.

Talk about timing being everything, it certainly was with my ‘to shave or not to shave’ post , as that allowed time for Portia to think on it, act on it and come up with what has to be both the funniest and yet genius new addition to her skins.

Not only is it genius but it allows my modesty factor to not be effected in the least, the Scripted Patch – chuckles – that you see in the last pic is rezzed onto the floor lol so that I could show you how it works – yes you dont need to see it against skin to understand its brilliance.

Once you wear it or in this case rez it you type /shave in chat – if it doesn’t work the first time just right click into edit and go to tools and reset scripts – you get a drop down menu and again giggles as a menu gives you options of what you want that area to look like that day, not only that you can resize it in edit and tint it to your own wants colourwise lol.

As you can see in the pic Portia put allot of work into being creative , Whimsy is going to love it lol.

Now onto the skins themselves. There are 8 wonderful tones, starting from a very pale porceline tone to a incredibly rich dark tone.

Freckles and non freckled options and the make ups are just wonderful. You also have 5 mod eyebrow options from blonde to black which you of course can change in appearances to suit the style of your shape.

The body detailing on these skins is also wonderful and you really do need to see them up close and personal so trying the DEMOS is a must do, if you have already worn Sin Skins in the past you will know of the cleavage enhancements in the original lines, they don’t work with this skin also neither will your manicures and pedicures from the old lines.

But the new ones have Prim Lashes , Eyebrows as stated, the Scripted Patch and the Regular and Freckled skin options, be aware though that tone 8 does NOT come with a freckles option as it is too dark to do so convincingly.
Really beautiful skins I enjoyed taking pics of with my Magika Mushi Hair on and the beautiful Basic Satin bra and Panties sets from Second Wave Apparel.

The set comes with 8 rich colours of bra and panties, on all layers and I just love the shape on the cups of the bra it really gives a sense of fullness to that area no matter what size you are.

As I have said in the past I adore the bra and panties sets from Second Wave Apparel so if you haven’t gotten any yet now is the time.

here Kitty Kitty

It’s 1.50 am which means by the time I finish typing it could be 3am lol , but its COLLLLLDDDDD, I swear its so hard sometimes taking pics like the ones today without getting colder.

So I was stoked to find a Cashmere Sweater in the Neko Gear items I had to show you today- which I am so behind with eeek.

First off I have to say that I am so very impressed with Neko Gear, not just because of the fab items but also because the creator understands that we are all different sizes and often when a creator makes neck attachments they only sit at their height , Neko Gear makes the attachment sit up near the chin on my shape height so all I had to do was move it down not try and find it in my body, so YAY that makes me happy, doesn’t take much.

So I started off with the beautiful Cashmere Sweater in Grey – love love love, and then remembered I had some Stunning Pants that I haven’t shown before that needed showing big time. They are the Itaparica pants from Persona and they come in a pack of different colours with both pants layers and prim legs , just stunning and the pinstripe and turned up cuff just add to the love.

The bag is an adorable item I picked up a long time ago from some random mall expedition I went on, and it was only 50L if memory serves me right , with a pose built in but not showing the pose in the pic. Its just delightful take my word for it even though you cant see it very well in the pic, its the GD’ Silver flower totebag by gecko Surface I included creator name just in case you need to find the store if my slurl is outdated.

The shoes oh the shoes, lets just pause a sec and drool shall we………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Ok thats long enough, they are the Frenzy Shoes from Maitreya and OMGosh aren’t they just Bliss on a heel, It’s not just that the style itself is just wonderful but that leather ruched effect is incredible, I mean you can just picture Onyx and Beau sitting there with their virtual sewing machine sewing the leather slowly to make such incredible detailing for us all. Ok maybe thats just me who can imagine that, but its how I think of their creative process totally diligent in every aspect of their shoes creation.

The New shoes also have a resizable option for each colour , you have the regular size 0 and a scripted pair that you can make bigger if you need to.

Now moving on to where I got colder lol but I soon got over it when I got to look so hot in these two delish Bikinis by Neko Gear. The Pawprint one on the left and the Black and Pink on the right are both beautifully textured and designed and on all layers WOOOT!.

But what helped make them delish was the fab new Skins from Sassy Secrets. Lots of New MakeUps in this skin range and the ones I am wearing are from the Lush set.

The bodies on these are perfect for swimwear or skimpy outfits , and with the dramatic make up you are set to go out on the town and show off your new look.
Then when the night of clubbing is over, its time to steal your mans underwear and crawl into bed looking just as hot.

The Genesha Pulled up Top and Pants set is just too awesome , I still dont know if its for men or women, and I don’t care coz I am still dancing around in it on my platform , yes folks thats what I do when I get yummy underwear I dance lol, Efe even came and joined me for a while cracking up as we danced to 80’s music me in my new undies and her all frocked up lol.

This set also comes on all layers but also has a panties option with it, with the nice yfront pocket lol so I am thinking they are definitely for boys. I also have to point out those fabulous Love Me Dog Tags – hmm if its a Neko store are they Kitty Tags ? – anyway they are adorable. They do have bling too but they have a bling off command to type in chat, and as you can see in the pic the bling is pretty subtle anyway.

The hair is the recently re-released Heiress from Diversity, this hair has been modified to be more in keeping with Aleris skills since its original release a long time ago , so its pretty much a new style in the new textures and just glorious.

Lots of fabulousness from lots of places today, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. woooo its only 2.29 I got that done faster than usual.

Charity Hair Fair

Hair Fair Events Planning


Ok so first off I am going to point out that I will probably copy paste this again on monday or other days just to be sure everyone see’s it :P, but as its for Charity you won’t mind I’m sure. Also as the Official Hair Fair blog doesn’t hit all feeds I am posting here as I am on the committee, but ANYONE who wants to spread the word can contact me in world or just link to the blog HERE.

Last year we did a few events that we are repeating this year, one of those is of course Bandana Day and the others will change but the concept of prizes for them will be the same. Last year all that was arranged only two weeks prior and many weren’t given enough time to be involved, so this year we are making sure you all know well in advance.

The Bandana Day Kits have been sent to the participants of Hair Fair , but also many other designers but by no means ALL, so if you are interested in making a Bandana for Hair Fair contact me in world for one.

You do NOT have to be a Hair Creator to be involved. You also do NOT have to own a store, this is the kind of thing that is important to so many people in world, and my experience last year means I know that many would love to do something to help but feel that because they aren’t a store etc they can’t be, THAT IS NOT THE CASE!.

ALL the money from the sales of the Bandana’s will go to Locks of Love the charity of choice for Hair Fair this year and past years. So that being said anyone who wants to create a bandana please contact me 🙂 . I have already received wonderful ones not only retextured with beautiful prints, but also some with amazing prim work added and themed lol sooooooooooooooo cute, cant wait for you all to see them.

Just be aware these have to come back to me full perms , and wont be able to be sold by anyone but the Hair Fair , you must also guarantee 100% that the textures are yours to use and prim work as well.

Ok now on to the second part , PRIZES, there are events as I said that will be run during Hair Fair, and for those we need prizes , I have already collected promises from many designers for this, the promise is in the form of a notecard as we do not want anyone changing perms to their items to do this.

Now we of course will be approaching Hair Fair Participants for Prizes for different events , but for some of them, again, its a case of other people wanting to be involved as they were last year.
There was a bit of confusion with my Prizes Requests note card that went out to Designers , based on them not making hair 🙂 I knew that, thats why it was sent, but I am sorry that it caused confusion. The Prizes requests are for designers and creators who would like to be involved to fill in the notecard I have that states what they will give the winners.

This can be anything from a particular item or items , or gift cards or an amount to use in their stores. I do not want to collect the items from Designers as again this would mean possibly having to change perms to make them passable.

The notecard asks for this info :

Store Name :

Avatar Name ( Your Name) :

Prizes Donated :

Then to be sent to Sasy Scarborough in world with the notecard named : Hair Fair Prizes (Your Store and Your Name )

So if you want to you can just make one and send it to me with that info included…The generosity has been incredible as usual but again dont want anyone missing out on the chance to be involved , once the events start being listed on the blogs the names of each store donating prizes will be included in each posting of events.

If anyone has any questions about either of these things IM Sasy Scarborough or Serendipity Nerd in world or send Sasy Scarborough or Serendipity Nerd a notecard which is preferable so we don’t miss the question.

Thanks Again In Advance

Nothing better than when you have to show some gorgeous new skins, than getting to show gorgeous new lingerie at the same time, swim wear comes close though. Crys skin by PXL with its gorgeous make-up choices and stunning tones is just beautiful.

Hart Larsson puts so much work into making his skins seamless,and adding the sunkissed tone to the Crys collection. Now I don’t actually have on the sunkissed yet, in these pics I have on the regular tones of Crys, but I wanted to show them first being a touch paler and more suiting to Lingerie.

The new lingerie in which I speak, is the Stunning French Lace Lingerie by House of Nyla‘s Nyla Cheeky, its always a wonderful moment when you get IM’s from Nyla saying things like I have some French Lace , and you know that means RL and we are going to get spoiled with it.

The stunning sets are comprised of 3 wonderful bra styles, Full Cup, Demi Cup and the delish and much needed Strapless. I love the strapless as it is low enough to fit under many dresses and tops and just feels wonderful to know you have on such beautiful work under whatever you are wearing.

The tone and shading on the skins are framed beautifully by this lingerie , she stunning full garter belt and straps are heaven , I had a berlei set like this one and my favourite part was the garter belt because of the ability to make the panties look like french knickers. The panties to this set are also adorable with the cute little sidebows. In this pic I am also wearing the Freckles version of the Crys skins , and its a light smattering of freckles across the nose, and with the natural lips and eyes its a wonderful all day skin.

The other charming features to the French Lace lingerie is the ruffles around the garters adding more dimension to the set , as well as the stunning masque for the eyes, so beautiful and something you can of course wear with many items other than the lingerie.

The skins have four options in each makeup, of brown and black eyebrows and both with freckles options, the Messy Eyes and Bloody lips is a fun make up, all of the skins makeups have wonderful full lips, you really need to try on the Demos of these skins and all the PXL skins as soon as possible.

All hair is from Diversity Hair top to bottom is Peppa, Lizzie, Carrie, Jaya and Edgy all wonderful styles and the Carrie is a new style about to be released that I just couldn’t wait to show so I could wear it lol, with the Lizzie style I am wearing the FREE Hair sticks from Essentia with the adorable asian lanterns.

Also using some NEW Poses from Ana Lu the slurl is in the always thankful for section at the end.

To Shave or Not to Shave that is the Question

How to write this post has been plaguing me for months. First off and so so important is the fact that this is NOT a put down of skin creators, that is very very important for me to make very clear.

In the months since this first occurred to me, I have wondered how to do this post , I have mentioned doing it numerous times , but always worried that it would come off strange, the other dilemma was of course how to show without showing.

I ended up using the eloh base and removing any genitals layers, so that I could preserve my own modesty and also not make it as in your face as I had to endure for two hours of taking the pics and then more time making the pic in layers in the first place , I swear I don’t want to look below my belly button again for a very very long time.

On that alone I applaud any skin makers, because that area would have to be the worst part of the Phils Place template there is. I also wore a template uv map pants layer over the eloh to make the base its not as defined as the usual template its very basic but it gives you the general idea of how they work , and also how much they change pixels wise on an in world form.

Ok so on to the post , yes I kind of rambled because I am hoping that the pictures end up cut when appearing on the feed. Now another important thing is that I am NOT including the names of the skin makers, they are numbered yes , but that is more for me to know what and who was who, and if any skin maker who knows I own their skins is really curious what number they are they can contact me in world.

The reason I did this comparison was to kind of prove my sanity, I have mentioned numerous times that I think that all skin makers should offer a shaved version with their skins, and that has come into debate many times. I remember a long time ago that Linden Lifestyles did a post on the preferences of people in that area , and of course now I cant find it in their archives when I want to link to it.

Now many back then commented I think I remember rightly, saying things about it being eww and kinky and whatever, thing is it isn’t at all, in Phils Place that would be the least kinky thing there is lol. There are so many reasons people can come up with to say no to the idea, and I respect that , I just want to put some yes reasons out there too.

I have an abundance of skins, many I have purchased and many have been given to me to blog on and they all rock for many different reasons. But lets talk about purchasing skins.

In the LL post that time, it amazed me – again I am going by memory of nearly a year ago so excuse me if I am incorrect – but one thing that stood out first off was that no one seemed to comment from a partner perspective. Everyone seemed to mention what THEY preferred, and in such a world as Phils Place that struck me as odd.

I have had two relationships in Phils Place in two years, and in both of those relationships there have been skin purchases, the first one was at a time I made my first real big skin purchase, you know the one , where you take that big plunge and are willing to spend a few K on a skin pack and really believe its going to be the one you stay in forever – my goodness that was a long time ago – I remember standing in my house naked in front of my partner at the time and asking him to be very certain that he liked every aspect of my skin, because there was no way in the world I was going to buy a skin that he hated the bum on or the nipples or the knees and YES that area too.

The same issue has come up in my current relationship as well, the preferences he has for that area, so when I make skin purchases its always something I have to consider, and I doubt very very much I am the only girl in Phils Place that does that.

Now step back from that part for a bit , and lets move on to another factor when purchasing skins, and no I am not going to talk about make up and shading etc all that is not what this topic is about, this is only about the down there section of the skin.

You want to go into modeling in phils place and you know that you need a good skin to start with , many girls starting out can’t afford at first to go an buy a mix of different skins for different looks , that comes later. So you have saved up and you are ready to spend your money on a skin pack that will cover you for the time being.

As a model there are many different things you will be called upon to model. Lingerie , Swim wear, Gowns , Casual etc the list goes on and on. You are going to make a very very crucial purchase but you are going to have to put allot of thought into that purchase , you will need a skin that can move easily from one look to the next and will also cater to all those things you may need to show.

This is where the pictures come in , first off the top picture shows 21 different designers skins, some of the skin designers do both options of with and without hair, so they have been shown on both sides. Look at the different placement on a body. Now firstly my measurements for hips are 50 height , 57 width and my torso is 63. It is also important to know that I took every single picture on the exact same frozen camera setting and then layered them exactly the same way on the layers so that they show exactly on my body where the very top part of that section ends.

Just like skin makers as you can see , clothing makers vary on where they end a pair of pants, underwear or bikini bottoms. Even some skirts if made as micros can be very low. So taking back into account being a model and having to be able to show each and every item on the skins available to you , you would need one that had that section low enough for it to never be an issue.

How do I know that to be true, well for one I have been there, I have put on an item to blog and taken pics and then moved my camera to realise that the top of my hair line actually showed above the item I was showing , and had I not moved the camera inwards enough I wouldn’t have noticed as it was very hard to tell from taking a full body shot. Which of course led to me panicking that I could have also teleported to somewhere dressed that way with that skin on and given people a potential eyeful without realising , because how often do we examine our fronts before leaving the house , especially down there.

Again though back to our model idea, if a model came across the same dilemma and had that area visible , she would either have to run off and buy another skin or worse lose the modeling job as her skin wouldn’t be acceptable. If that occurred the reaction from the model could also possibly be disappointment in her skin for losing her the job, and that stays with you, it would become about the skin and not the fact that the clothes were very low cut.

Ok so now lets skip away from the models for a second, and on to lifestyles for a sec. Many of us know people in the D/s BDSM lifestyle, or if we don’t know them we have at least seen them shopping or around phils place. One thing with Submissive’s and Slaves in Phils Place is that they wear very little clothing, and I don’t mean little as in barely there as silks especially usually have lots of fabric to them, but little as in barely concealing certain areas of the body, and one area is down there.

Now allot of the time what they wear is chosen for them, and in that incidence again , if the skin is not with options and they already own their favourite skin , it makes silks wearing difficult , and they possibly have to change skins altogether, or if they don’t have a favourite skin and they have the ability to buy another , then its going to be from a skin designer that does give them those options of a bare down there area , so that in whatever item of clothing they wear they are not revealing anything they shouldn’t be.

Many people will think it doesn’t matter , they don’t have those sorts of customers , well you don’t actually know that :P, you can know that you have never seen a girl in your store in silks , but you can’t ever know that the glamorous fashionista in the latest fabulous fashion doesn’t run an alt that is her D/s avatar , and that if your skins suit her needs then she will be back to purchase, lol and as for the alt being the Submissive, its the fashionista that could be the alt lol.

You will also find that many many many of the Dom/me’s in lifestyle relationships do the shopping but thats a whole other story, but again the point being that unless a person straight out IM’s you and asks if there is a possibility of shaved you have no idea if not offering it has lost you a sale, because a huge percentage wont do that, they will just go and find one that does.

Also consider one of the biggest industries in Phils Place , Escorts and Strippers. Their skin choices make them money, and they aren’t greedy about sharing that money around , these women spend thousands in Phils Place on costumes, lingerie and all the other things that they need to perform in, Escorts especially need options to cater to their clientelle , if the client has a preference for that area they are going to make sure they cater to that whatever the preference may be because that is where their money comes from.

Again THOUSANDS of dollars are spent from that industry in skin stores, and I mean dollars not lindens, and for every stripper and escort you win over with your product you get not only loyalty but a dozen referalls – I had an escort customer when I managed HOZ that not only brought all her dancer/escort friends to the store , but the angel would bring new residents in that she came across hand me a K to dress them with, she would have to have done that at least ten different times.

Now I have to refer to the second pic because its a bit confusing especially with the background being my regular shape. But again something occurred that made me think about it from another angle. When I used to sell Menswear and would tell women looking for suits to purchase Mens suits they would always be surprised that they would fit , yes thats true and more than a dozen times that took place, the surprise part I mean.

But its a good example , clothes stretch to the shape, as do skins and so will your clothes, but lets consider skins as that is the topic. Shapes vary in Phils Place , in a huge way, unless you purchase a no mod shape there is not going to be anyone identical to you , the chance of that would have to be a billion to one – ok I made that up but you know what I mean, sliders by 1 number make us different.

As I said my hip length is 50 and many are smaller than that and many Im sure are higher , so I made a shape at 10,20,30,40 all the way to 100. Wore the same skin and watched as that area changed, this is something you will have to do to really see how it works , but again going back to that trying on skins naked in your own home.

If for example the down there section had hair and it was for example number 1 in the pic at the top, well if your hips were closer to 100 than my 50 that area would stretch which would bring it visually to where 16 is , and without thinking of the impact your shape has on the skin you MAY react to the area as it being too much for your tastes. I can’t imagine anyone loving a skin so much that they would mod their shape to make that area smaller visually, so the outcome again would be possibly not purchasing that skin.

You can’t dismiss the facts too that so many designers have such different areas they end that area at, and this is just the skins I have , there are hundreds out there that I have no clue about what options they offer. Also many end in exactly the same spot , there were more but I was getting dizzy trying to draw straight lines between others and my straight is another persons wobbly :P.

What I am hoping is that skin makers do consider offering more than one option down there, not for any other reason that to make sure that if your skin is so loved with make up and tones that its not that area that changes things for the customer. Many have adopted options for down there, and it is way easier for a new creator to do that, testing the market , seeing whats out there and offering that bit more.

Ask your customers, do something like one skin creator did a while back and get people to take a survey on their preferences, see what the statistics say. I can also imagine that people that have those options in one skin maker will be spoiled on that and find it really hard to make a change to get less from someone else.
So even if they want to change skins get more make up, add to their skin range , its very hard to go from a skinner that gives you lots in your pack to one that only gives you one option, anyway thats just how I look at it from a customer perspective, its like buying a car that gives you power steering and airbags and all the fun extras , going to get a new car and getting none of that for the same money.

Skin buying has become like shoe buying in Phils Place this year , people buy new skins so much more than they ever did , not as many stick to one skin pack for 6 months to a year like they used to even longer some of them, and I see stores coming up with new things to entice them with, I think that this should be one of those things , and as I said it has become that for a few designers, so consider adding the options to your older lines and your newer ones, and keep your customers happy and loyal – giggles imagining a customer telling a designer they changed skins because of the extra down there options , it would probably never ever happen. But I do know that people I know haven’t bought skins because of the lack of options there.

Now I hope to never ever have to explain that again when I’m talking to a skinner and begging them to make that option too lol.

Latex Leaves and Lips

A compilation of different things today.
Recently Adam n Eve Designers Sachi Vixen and Damen Gorilla created shoes and an outfit to compliment each other, since then there has been more shoes so with everything today I will show both shoe styles as well as the outfits to start.

The set is Shawt and the shoes are C’mere as you have seen them before I am not showing all colours, but it was about time you saw the outfit that they were created for. Shawt is named for not only how skimpy the pieces to this set are , especially the hotpants, but also for the concept of their Hawtness – yes I was behind that name too, but when you have Sachi in your box demanding a name you do what you can, and it was all I could come up with on short notice pun pun punnnnn.

The Shawt set comes in 6 colours as usual , and the shoes come in many divine colours the match the sets with some extras just because they are too yummy to be limited to 6. The outfit is made of delish Latex, with hot pants, micro mini and a flex mini skirt. All pieces are superb, and the top to this with its wonderful under bust strapped and buckled detailing is perve worthy.
The tops would also look fabulous with the leather pants Sachi made a while ago, and all items in the Adam n Eve store have DEMOS so you should definitely go try them on yourself. I am wearing both the Jodie Model and the Celeste skins in the pics of Adam n Eve items, with hair from Magika Lime , Soul and Dream in that order.

Moving into the Latest Shoes from Adam n Eve with the Miranda‘s, they are open toed back strapped beauties, and so elegant but sexy at the same time, so you can go Shawt or into the next items I am showing with ease.

Persona Creator Myllie Writer released the Odelia dresses recently and as soon as I saw them I thought about running through fields of flowers. You know when you do that how you can end up with leaves and flower petals and all sorts of stuff stuck to the end of your clothing , well these reminded me of that outcome.
Beautiful babydoll dresses in such pretty hemline colours in three different prints, butterflies , flowers and leaves , all so feminine. Pay attention to the skins too in these pics as I will go into more detail about them at the end. Hair is Eva-More by Maitreya.

Again such stunning colours and as you can see the Miranda shoes by Adam n Eve have so many lovely colour choices to choose from, there is even Coffee Bean – a miracle coz Sachi doesn’t like brown lol. The hair in this pic is Pipy from Mirai. I hope you are paying attention to the skins because the make-ups are stunning.

Especially this one that went so well with the Blue Flowers Odelia dress, such stunning blues and the deep blue in the Miranda just added even more beauty. The hair is the River 2 style from Maitreya.

Which brings me to River by Maitreya, the other day I was at work and a girls head filled my camera – thats not me saying she has a big head its just that I was cammed in on the vendors at work and literally just got the back of her head in close up.
As I couldn’t actually see the style but got totally smitten with the textures I had her in inspect before I even cammed away from her, and had to laugh at the outcome being hair I owned already, when Onyx did the new textures I had the privilege of a sneak peak of them long before even added to all the styles, so I already was in love with them , but its nice to fall back in love with something. They are all so beautiful and I adore the reds.

The autumn like colours of the Odelia Dress in reds is just warm and cosy, autumn would have to be my favourite season , many of you call it Fall which is equally wonderful. I also get to wear the Coffee Bean Miranda‘s with this one YAY Damen.

Again in the reds is the Butterfly Odelia and aren’t they just so sweet, The hair in this pic is Dafy again by Mirai, Pipy and Dafy are such adorable flower power style hair do’s.

Now about the Incredible New Nina skins by Bebae skins. Five gorgeous tones left to right Bronze, Ebony, Pale, Sunkissed and Tan. Now a few weeks ago I was at Novocaine when doing my first post on them, and I ran into Torie and her friend Jade, Torie being Torie Senne the creator behind Bebae (previously Unfad ) skins, she wanted to see her new beta on my shape so passed over Nina, and wow it was so yummy.

We started talking about things for skins and needs etc, and one of my biggest and I mean BIGGEST requests of skin makers is shaved, I even plan a whole post on it soon – I just have to work out how to do such a post lol- I will wait until I do it to explain my reasons but Torie listened and then got naked!!!!!, LOL right there in the store nakey.

I laughed so much RL thinking only a skinner in Phils Place can get naked so fast , even strippers and escorts would be slower in comparison, not just that no modesty about it at all , makes me laugh still just thinking about it , and yes again , I identify much too much with my avatar :P.

Anyway I just had to share that , be prepared if you ever go into a skin discussion in a public place with a skinner prepare for the possibility of NAKEYNESS lol.

All 5 tones of this skin are beautiful , I think anyone could easily wear all five – not at once of course lol. The shading on the chest area and the collarbone is just wonderful, the stomach has that fit look without being too fit, and the bum is YUM.

The make ups as you can see in the closeups are all divine as well and I couldnt get past how incredible the ears are. The eyes are all smokey and rich and the lips are lush with their light gloss effect as well its superb , make sure you go and get all the DEMOS.

The hair in that pic is Sophie by Maitreya and those absolutely ADORABLE bra and panties sets are the the Peek a Boo frills set from Second Wave Apparel, I love love love this set and had to grab all the sets it comes in , there is a lighter pack too. The bows at the front are just Yummy but its the cut out on the bum that just make them sooooooooooooooooooo gorgy.

Something Old Something New

What an incredible Month it has been, so many events and Grand Openings, New Lines and Incredible New Stores. Today though its something Old, Something New Nothing Borrowed and Something Blue.

The Something Old is the incredible Designers featured today. Callie Cline, Rita Groshomme, Gala Phoenix and Nebulosus Severine with the exception of JB Gazov, but then he is over a year old so by Phils Place standards he can be oldish too :o).

With the Black Swan Sim having an incredible opening this week and many incredible Designers being invited to create items incorporating the theme, it’s been a wonderful week for really dressing up and no better way to celebrate New Clothes , than with New Skins and New Hair – actually technically most of the styles of hair are older but New to me so that counts :P.

So with the Grand Opening of the New Curio Sim- a fantastic build housing the talent of Rita Groshomme and Gala Phoenix – merging those beauties with the stunning Swan Song set by Callie Cline.

This wonderful set comes with so many options of wear, that having so many ravishing skins and new locks just made it even more fun to show.

The set has wonderful feather work on the three different length skirts , its like being encased on a Black Swans wings, a stunning visual especially in the gown length version.

The boostier style top is a lovely velvet texture, with an option of a belted waist look with double straps and buckles just under the empire line of the dress.

The extras to this set also are just wonderful , with the Incredible Full Lashes you see in the second pic tinted a sea green to co-ordinate with the beautiful green/blue running through the feathers on the sleeves, topped with the incredible pearls.

Also a wonderful pearl bangle and the stunningly chunky Water Ring – this one wont help you float in water though. The other pieces are from the resplendent Swans Tears set by Nebulosus Severine, absolutely stunning is this set and the matching with Callie Clines Swan Song is just a partnership made in wonderland.

Now looking at the info in Nebulosus’s profile it appears there is no store at the moment – cries – so you MUST MUST get your hands on this set while at Black Swan, because it could possibly be not for sale afterwards – don’t quote me on that I am only going by profile.

The set compliments not only this set but just so many other things as well, there are two necklaces and two earrings options as well as prim eyes in the same blue- I didn’t wear those as I know I would forget to change back. The jewelry is just wonderful and the soft shimmery glow to the vials holding the precious Swans Tears are just stunning.
As well as the Feather skirts you also get the sculpted mini which is very cute, and with or without the incredible boa like sides and train you will have lots of fun and compliments on this set.

Now I was lucky enough to get into Curio late Friday night, so Kit and I had it all to ourselves for a while, we had a blast in that luxurious Mansion trying on hair and skins for hours.

As soon as I got to the hair section I saw a style that I knew was so Kit and well since I have been back it seems to be the hair everyone is going to love and rightly so.

The stunning Gertrude style is the style at the very top of the post and isn’t it just adorable. Kit was wearing a cat back pack at the time and she totally looked like a porceline doll come to life, with the I am wearing the beautiful Gertrude hairRusset Makeup in the Classic Tone from Gala.

The tones are so wonderful and sooooo many to choose from. I adore the make up on all of them , Russet is a favourite for its beautiful rich glossy browns.
The Next hair is Gala 2 I just love the length and those thick luscious bangs , with the incredible Scene Make up in the Ebon tone , I couldn’t resist the combination, the lips the eyes and that incredible tone , if you are looking for a darker skin this is a MUST GRAB DEMO tone for you.

Gala is the next style, this has been around for a long time this style and it was a huge hit last year, time to resurect it says me lol, its so delish and cutsie, again a total Doll come to life style , and the skin OMGosh , I couldn’t resist the heavenly Basic Pack 1 in Luster tone when I saw this Emerald skin , its just beautiful and goes so well with my eyes, and the red in those lips is just yum, all the skins in the new range are MOD , so you can slightly alter the lips in them , just make a copy and play with the lip colour sliders , you get more BANG for your Buck that way.

Next is Spikey ,and it certainly is , so cute and well spikey lol, with the absolutely lustrous Nocturnal Make Up I was in blue heaven, Gala has an incredible talent at shimmery make ups for the eyes , that blue is just gorgeous, definitely another Must Have , well all of them are actually if you want to be particular about it lol.

Sleek Bob the next style is a short style variation of the longer Snood hair I have worn many times in the past , the 1920’s look just shines with the pearls and the glamorous gown of the Swan Song set. Wonderful Juxt make up with again a delightful shimmer effect making that smokey look we all love just a little bit more luxurious.

Lastly for the hair we have the Creepy Bun, just the name makes it a must, those thick falls of hair at the front then pulled back into a tendril spilling interwoven bun give it so much class with out being conservative. The Rosette Make up just finishes off the look in the Hazel tone another lovely darker tone.

All the shoes are from the talented creator of J’s the Belted Goth boots I still have on as I love them so much , the Gladiator Sandals and the Ribbon Goth Bow boots again are a delight , with the options of so many different looks in each pair of boots they are so yummy to own. Tassel Wedge Sandals are hard to ever not wear, I know some girls who wont take them off ever ♥ and the lovely Backband heels are so cute in their strappy pointed style. ALl of J’s shoes have DEMOS so make sure you grab them all and try them on and see how wonderful they are.

TP To :

Black Swan ( you need to walk down the path and tp using the entry door , you will land at a platform and there is a black feather to use to TP to the Black Swan Vendors for the Swan Song and Swan Tears Sets)
