I have mentioned in the past that I started out my Second Life as a redhead. I have red naturally through my RL hair, so it was just a normal thing for me to do, especially with the fun reds back then, which I now know where largely in part to tinting lol.
Anyway, since then with all the different textures and the lack of naturals packs …BRING BACK NATURALS PACKS PLEASE HAIR PEEPS. Whimsy and I often cry about the loss of such a valuable hair pack. I kind of moved to black as a safe colour, but spend most of my time in a large range of colours, yay for dyeing your hair without the chemicals lol.
Anywho, I was running down my folders tonight, and came across the lovely portia skin by Adam n Eve, blogged before, but I hadn’t paid much attention to the brows options at the time. IÂ realised that there is red as a hair base, and brow option, and as I had never done red brows in the past, I wanted to give them a whirl, for all those diehard fans out there.
With the beautiful red hair textures from Fri.day, shown here in the latest Summer style, you really do get a nice overall look with the red brows – demands Sachi now makes red hair lashes -Â I often wonder why there aren’t blonde and brunnette lashes in SL only black, not everyone wears mascara all the time.
Fia calls this my librarian look, I put it together early this morning, and only now had the chance to take the pic. Last week when shopping with Whimsy for her Oscars dress, we went to Reale, and I picked up these skirts. I really like the detailing, and have been throwing it on every chance I get since then.
A few months ago, there was a need for a hairstyle in Fashion Emergency. The funny thing was that when they supplied a pic to ask which one it was, all I could focus on was the jacket. So off I went and snapped it up. Naive does such lovely work with this cropped style look. The detailing on the coat is exquisite, I really love that all the detailing is done on the coat itself, and not reliant on prims.Â But I would love to see some sculpted cuffs and collar as an option too, for a fuller effect.
Accessory Fair is still going strong to my knowledge, and the item that called me to it in the first place was the ‘Where are my glasses’ necklace by Sissi. Not only is it a wonderful and humorous accessory, it has such lovely extra detailing and overall style, with the added bonus of being scripted to change as much as you can handle. The c0lours of the glasses, pearls and character all have multiple options in a drop down menu, so coordinating is easy.
What I learned today: Today I found out that you do not have to be a premium member to own estate land, only mainland. I argued this point like a crazy person earlier today, as it was always to me, and most of the people I know, the absolute rule. I do not know where or when they changed this, because I swear it was not like that back when I started, or dreamland and all those other estates would have never made money.
The whole basis of ‘leasing’ from the land barons, was that you didn’t have to become a premium account holder. Now what I don’t understand is, why is this the case at all ? why would linden labs put their highest priced item in the hands of people that have no commitment to them, who can buy privately with lindens, and then also pay tier with their lindens, by turning them into USD on the website, and not taking them, as LL goes to your USD balance first. So with no info on file, or ID needed, what is going to safeguard them against possible fraudulent behaviour ?
I am just baffled by it, so thought I would share :).
