I have been watching all the great posts done by Bloggers for this years Skin Fair. Official Bloggers of the event were asked to include a specific number of posts in the ‘Old School’ format, that in Second Life Blogging usually means a composite of pictures of either tones or make ups of a skin. Going back years this was done on every skin post by many bloggers, but faded away for more of a look book, look of the day style of posting.
I have seen a few mentions on how this is out of peoples comfort zone, and they are not sure how to go about it etc. We all struggled back in the day, many had tricks or processes they would use, actions in PS and the like, then along came Photoscape and made life very easy on everyone. This software is not only easy for Bloggers and those that do not have PS at all it has a huge arrangement of editing options, but the section focused on today is the Page section which is like a whole lot of smart objects you can drag and drop to.
I am today featuring the lovely new skin at Skin Fair by Adam n Eve. Adam n Eve skins were skins I wore for my first few years Blogging, every day…another thing that happened in the olden days was one skin – and its options – were worn for sometimes years – they also were about ten times the price of skins now, so we are lucky to have so many options so readily available and an event like Skin Fair just shows such a great range of options and stores to make note of to visit in future.
The skin is called Anya and it has such a lovely face, worn in my picture with the Spencer LeLutka head. Adam n Eve has made the skin a one click apply and detach HUD option in the LeLutka version, so you can drop it straight into an outfit and bam you are done.
It has no brows as the base skin and there are brow options available. Adam n Eve has also updated their body appliers to give more options and today I am also wearing the new Slink Petite Augment which means I can have smaller breasts that the original body breast size could lower too. This is an add on piece that you wear after wearing the body, and it will remove the mesh from underneath and voila you have a whole new shape to play with. At the moment the Augment is too new for mesh clothing, but applier clothing looks fantastic on it, and I just really liked how the combination of the Petite Augment went with my Hourglass body. I also love this top. The reason I combined the Adam n Eve with the Petites is that they have shading options in their body appliers allowing for a softer look for smaller breasts, they even have a de-hanced look which is as close to flat as you can get.
Going with a more casual style the top and these amazing pants by Ison really fit my lazy days bill. Coupling them with these amazing shoes by Zaara – there are so many options to personalise these shoes and the jewel encrusting is magnificent as always with Zaara pieces – that are at this round of Collabor88. The shoes and the look really kept up with this amazing prop build and the hair choice from Mina not only suited the beautiful skin and my look overall, but the location and pose. Got to love when that happens.
The petites also made me smile with glee, when looking for a little something extra to wear, I put on this great talisman necklace also by Zaara and loved that no editing whatsoever needed to happen because my breasts were not in the way or clipping.
To show off the skin tones available I chose the beautiful lingerie by Mutresse also at Collabor88. This lace style is a bit more revealing than I wear frontally on my blog, but you are used to that by now. It comes in an abundance of colours and some gorgeous options to change, and once I went all black I just couldn’t resist colouring the bow on my bottom. You will actually see the HUD in my video so much to choose from and the style is just divine.
When visiting Skin Fair there is a complexity limit for the first week, so that lag can be decreased. It is set to 50K at this time which is an ample amount to still keep your bodyparts on as needed, just tone down your hair wearing complexity, possibly just use a hairbase and you will want to see your body appliers etc, so using an applier swimsuit can help, then derender everyone and turn down your draw distance and you will be good to go.
