Maitreya has been updating older items, and creating new ones to work with their recent Body release Lara. If you have previously purchased Maitreya Gold footwear, or items such as the Skinny jeans and pastel versions, go and get them updated via redelivery. I am wearing the New Vixen dress that just coats the body beautifully, no alphas needed, and it is also fitted to the body, so that I can actually give myself a bit more va va voom.

The shoes are the older shiki shoes, and I just love these, the textures on the wedge are some of my favourite by Maitreya footwear, and they just work in day looks or sultry night ones such as this. Also wearing some fantastic jewellery from Yummy at this round of C88 , with hair by lamb and these wonderful candlesticks just helped set my mood by Pilot & Jim. Perched on my head for a little bit of the macabre, is the lovely fascinator by MiaMai, they do such charismatic pieces, you should give their store a whirl around every so often and just marvel at their work.

The Glam Affair skin is part of the Shiny Shabby event, and has a great range of make ups to choose from. It also has a great range of eyebrow options, so there is no need to despair, on which will go with which hair.

This dress by Tee*fy just makes you feel all girly and romantic, such a beautiful daytime frock for many occasions. I felt the urge to pick daisies and have a picnic while wearing it, but decided instead to spend time in the FIMA Winxbox to fulfill my floral urges. The flats by Ingenue, work perfectly with the beauty of the dress, and my NEW Kayla hair by LeLutka in one of the beautiful soft new textures just had me all whimsical.

Make sure you visit C88 for all of the lovely items this round has to offer, there is a sense of romance in the air.

It has been a heavy duty weekend, so I was glad to jump aboard a Whimsy run, while we visited Yasum. We do this every few months, just enough time to make it a buy everything in sight trip. I adore this dress, it is so tutu-esque and fit perfectly over my body. I even got the matching panties that fit snuggly underneath and also have big polka dots. I may just start wearing them on their own, so adorable they are.

I was busy doing work things the other day, while Ashia was visiting the Fantasy Gatcha event. She was squeeling and oooing and ahhhhing all over the place…and I was lucky enough to be sent some of her doubles. Then while I had the chance, I ran over and joined her and Whimsy, and shopped a lot, there are so many incredible items there. I was lucky to get this great RARE item from the Muka stall, and it was the complete white set of clothing I am wearing. It also has a posture collar mask combination that I was not able to wear because of my head, but such an incredible set, even if using pieces of it only.

The headress is from Zenith, also at the event, and it is just WOW! Not only is it gorgeous, but on some investigating, I realised that because it is linked pieces and modify, that I could wear it different ways. I can make the flowers invisible, and just have the face chain. Or I can make the chain invisible and just have the flowers, or make just one flower visible. It is an item that just keeps giving.

LeLutka has released 3 incredible NEW hairstyles, and also a GIFT style that will remain in the store full time. All the NEW hairs are in the courtyard under the lovely yellow and black tent. Each new style has the great new textures, and there  is a new RANGE pack that is like an essentials pack but jam packed full of 15 colours, from natural to fantasy.

Each hud has the base colours, then a fade option of those colours, and then on top of that, roots bases and then roots versions of the fades. So just the single packs alone give you 32 options. Great new pricing on the packs as well, so you will only have a hard time deciding between your packs or all.

Only a few days left before the new cycle of Collabor88 starts, so make sure you run over and grab the Emery leather shorts if you didn’t already. They work so well with this great top from Ison that is at the Uber event going on right now. I mixed them both together with some Glamistry shoes that have a lot of different options when it comes to being able to coordinate your looks.

I was getting my spanish dancer groove on with this pose, and then I wore myself out and needed a rest on my stool by The Loft, these are things that happen at our studio, we tend to get exhausted from all the laughing and ribbing eachother we do all day. I think that Samantha, the hairstyle by Damselfly is the last of the styles I picked up there recently, which I got in all black packs and of course have now decided that I want to go back to lighter colours, so we shall see how that pans out.

Gothed Up

Sometimes things are so girly, you want to darken them up…so that is what I did with this look I put together with The Secret Store’s items for Collabor88 and some great hair from Damselfly. Ashia and I also went on a speedy trip to Fashion Fair, all in the intention of getting the follow up skin appliers release for Frida by YS&YS that I have been wearing religiously since the My Attic teaser. Not only did I pick up the skins, but the fantastic bag and shoes that are also in their booth.

The oxfords are very much like Doc’s shoes versions, and they have a great hud for changing all the details of the shoes if you get the fatpack. The hud lets you mix and match everything, so you end up making some wonderful combinations. The bag also has a hud that lets you change the inner lining of the bag as it is worn in an open way that is just adorable.

Huds that just add little nuances to an item are fun, and really give you a sense of more with an item. I am not saying people should give the kitchen sink, believe me I am not all for that at all…but just adding a hud that changes the piping or metal on an item, is a win for all. These great shoes from Reign do that, you get to change the sole colour, piping and inner mesh, which you can see because of the sheer of the shoe texture itself. I love the style of these because even though I am in the usual High feet from Slink, they somehow manage to look even more extreme as your eyes follow the detailing of the shoes.

The spacey look to them worked well with this great sweater dress I also go at Sn@tch the other day, I was so glad when it fit with my body, even with the split at the leg. I love the racing stripes look of it all, very sexy. I got excited with my tablet again today, and added a lot more hair to this great style by Exile for C88 this round, it is a stunning windblown hair, and it just inspired even more from me and my wacom. The whole look made me feel like a Muse from the skies, like one of my favourite movies growing up.

Another Chapter

Another Chapter

So I managed to fish out my Wacom this past week or so, and have been playing with it a little. It really takes getting used to using it, but if you are a shortcut user in Photoshop, it is a lot easier to manage. When drawing hair on an image, setting up your two colours (foreground and background) is a must do, then use X to toggle back and forth while you are drawing, that gives you a lot more ease of flow. Other great must use Photoshop shortcuts that I would not be able to function without using are as follows.

Shortcuts in Photoshop (ones I use the most often)

To duplicate a layer

Ctrl J

Zoom in – Ctrl + 

Zoom out – Ctrl – 

To make brushes larger or smaller whether an actual brush or any of your brush styles for smudging, dodge and burn etc  (just holding it down will zoom in or out on size)

Smaller –

Larger – ]

Remove last move

Ctrl Z 

Toggle between foreground and background colours

Default foreground and background colours

D

Clone Stamp Tool

S

Magic Wand Tool

W

These are just some that I use the most in everyday use…there are so many more, and definitely steps that will save you so much time, and become second nature to you.

A lot of the time I am mending hair, I love mending things, fixing broken limbs, replacing components etc. Today though I opted for being a bit more imaginative with the use of my hair brushes. The way my hand was situated, I just liked the idea of having it seem as though I was running strands of hair through my fingers, and I hope that translated as meant to.

Today I am wearing my Maitreya body Lara. We are spoiled for choice these days, between my Slink Physique and my Maitreya Lara, I am ready for all that can be thrown at me clothing wise. It also came into play because with the new skins for Chapter 4 that Glam Affair did, it is an easy selection on the hud that comes with to match to your Glam Affair skins. I also did some NEW Maitreya nail sets yesterday, so you can check those out HERE. Sophie is a lovely skin, and it has a lot of options in the two tones that it is available in for the event. I am wearing Jamaica. I really like the subtleness of this rich red that is in the lipstick, it is not blood red, nor tomatoe, it just sits beautifully classy in between.

Yesterday I wore an Exile hair that is an item for Enchantment, and today I am actually wearing the prize you can select once you complete your stamp card. The hair comes with a teacup fascinator attachment, so you need to make sure to get that filled in time, or you will miss out, as the items as prizes are exclusives. Combining older and newer items in the form of my clothing, was easy with Gizza and Le Primitif, I loved this blouse bustier combination on sight, and these pants are wonderful as well.

The shoes I picked up on a trip to Dirty Princess with Whimsy. Now while shoes are made for Slink feet, I am really hesitant to shop there for the most part, because there are no demos for anything. Which I do not really understand that, because it is not a normal thing for shoes or wearables of that mesh nature to not have demos…so purchase with caution. I would steer clear of any boots etc, if like me wearing a body, as without a demo, you are not going to know if the legs line up at all – unless stated with information about the particular body…all the boots in the store were prior to Physique though, so a no go for me. I am a Pisces though, so fishbone accessories when done well are my weakness, so I took the gamble.

I adore new boots, and these are the latest from Deco…if you like hardcore booting, these are going to be at the top of your list. They have crossbones on the sides, and there are 6 options of colour combinations in them. I was on my way out the door with the girls, but had to just jump on my stand with these great items.

Exile is part of this round of Enchantment, so in his store you can buy this gorgeous hair and get your stamp card stamped, which means you can also get the other exclusive style once you collect all your stamps. The style also has a bow attachment, but for this look I went without.

The sweater is from Zenith and though I am a bit cranky that the dress they recently had at Uber had no breasts in the model, this sweater I could not resist. I am a bit confused how when items are standard sizing they don’t actually include the shape of the body, how it is still standard sizing, but artistic license I guess, but I am sad that I did miss out on that dress it was amazing.

Fishy Strawberry has created these wicked glasses. There are sunglass or reading glasses options and a ton of texture options to choose between, which makes them must haves!
