Summer 2
Summer Lovin
Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2009

Gift Lingerie, New Skins and Lashes to write home about.

Over the years we have seen a definite change in the skin market, nothing compared to the leaps and bounds of the past 18 months. This weekend will be the second annual Skin Fair for Vanity Universe, and over 45 designers from all over SL are taking part. Part of the proceeds from this event will go to Care International.

I was able to visit the sim early as press, unfortunately I was so early that most booths had not set up yet, such is the case for most fairs usually, just as in RL it’s a case of a mad scurry before the doors open. Not only are the creators allowed to sell skins at this event, but also shapes, lashes and eyes, the whole body package so to speak.

Even if you are not a skin changer in your day to day, you definitely will want to check out the lashes, it is a total lash lovers dream. I hit paydirt with the New lash range from Redgrave, woah they are fine, not only is there an incredible amount of stunning lash options, but they fit like a dream.

You will see me wearing the Diamond Dust ones in all the posts I expect, they are so yummy. The two skins I am showing today are the latest releases from Redgrave, available at the upcoming Vanity Skin Fair that opens its doors on the 7th of Nov.

Summer is the first skin, in Emilia’s own words a much more mature skin line for her store. I agree, this skin is definitely for the more composed of women, I was actually really excited in how much it gave off that well put together look. Especially for the career focused in SL. It really is a beautiful skin and the hair base is parted on one side making it so distinguished looking. I didn’t want to wear hair at all with either of the Redgrave skins, as they both have such stunning bases.

I put together a very north shore combination, maybe your Hamptons and was loving the look. For Rihanna2 though definitely a bit more naughty, she still has her youthful rocker thing going on in this outfit, and wow the make up, this is one of my favourites, mind you they are all gorgeous on both skins, but this one has to be up the top.

Either Summer or Rihanna2 you are going to want to DEMO both of these new lines, and OMG the new breast enhancers are WOAH !, if you lose your partner at the fair, look for him at that booth lol.

I am wearing the fabulous Gift item from Insolence Isabel in White for these body pics, it went out as a group gift to the What’s New SL group this week, so you can still get it if you join (for free) and check archives.

Big shout out to my VR Professional Posestand and HUD, because these pics were painless because of it.
