I had a Hair Fair meeting today, because it is getting close to the deadline for applying, so making sure that we were all on the same page was the agenda. Afterwards I ran around a bit, throwing some info at some stores that have popped up in the time since the last one to now. I checked out a few ‘out there’ stores and got a little bit sad thinking about the loss of Achariya to fashion blogging in SL. If you hadn’t heard, yesterday was her last post. Who is going to blog for the future Acha’s of SL? In the old days, it was her and Ashia that did most of the ‘out there’ fashion blogging, it was never a surprise to see one of them turning up in some fire breathing alien cyborg fetish panther suit, or as a pink bunny, you know, whatever tickled them for the day. Ashia stopped last year, and now Achariya, and I think it is more of a loss than most would even think.
She will definitely be missed, and hopefully will find a way to still share with us her passion for all things different in SL.
So while out and about I ended up at Anaphora, some of you will remember that Anaphora started out at The Deck a long time ago, and he sure has grown since then to his own splashy and fabulous looking sim. Once upon a while ago too, he wasn’t that into girls hair as much as boys, but now has definitely overcome that hurdle and not only is he doing fabulous womens styles, but also recently branched out into skins.
The Alixia skin his first took many months to perfect, and you can tell from the shading on the body that a lot of the work is hand drawn, with some amazing tones and intense make ups. The character of this skin is mature and for those that lend themselves to a bit of ethnicity well I think that you will like this skin a lot. Remember demo demo demo.
The earrings I am wearing I just had to have when I saw the notice, those Tableau stores had me at hello. Yummy is a store by Polyester and yet for some reason as often as I have been in there, the name never registered properly until this time. The diamond spray of these are just wonderful, sculpted perfection and the texturing is amazing.
The coat I am wearing is from Aoharu, one of the pieces Machang returned with from her break, and she hasn’t stopped since. It has so many attachment options as well as with or without fur collar. The style is beautiful and the brilliance of the white was just perfect to show off such a dark for me tone skin. A few weeks back I went to FFL and grabbed some items from Duh, I am pretty sure it was FFL otherwise I am completely lost about where I have been going, and doing and argggh so many things lately. The boots are from Duh, and they are fun cowboy boots, if you have never been to Duh and are a shoe fan, and love a bargain, then this store is for you, because these boots were something like 25L or so.
Tucked into the boots are some Petals Place socks, petals place is owned by a RL photographer and artist, who enjoys making art on clothing in Second Life also, as well as using her own vintage fabrics etc. So when I saw these vibrant socks I had to have.
While taking pics and just about to do the body shots, Luck Inc released these new jeans,the Tyra jean. They come in lots of denim washes and colours, with skinny or cuffed skinny prims for this set, and two other variations which are slim and flare. I had to giggle at these jeans, they are probably the highest waisted jeans from Luck Inc so far, in the fact that to do an open zipper look, you actually have to have some zipper available, CK is so much fun to tease.
On typing all this up the Spring Festival for Tableau started and I am so in love with the new hair from Fashionably Dead, it is called Butterfly Girl and I LOVE it, even the demo colour made me squeel. Toast let me know it was just a tint, so I got the earths pack and yayyyy HERE
