Blown Away

Blown Away
Epiphany is a very popular Gatcha event that runs every few months and pretty much tilts the grid. This round Blueberry has created the most divine collection of wedding inspired pieces, from lace lingerie, and short dresses for the wedding party or even as leaving for the honeymoon option, then there are the gowns themselves, with such amazing floral detailing that you will be enchanted. So many options and so many lovely colours from traditional white to black and a rich red as well as others in between.

I went a little away from the norm because I feel there is so much going on in the day, that the bride-to-be needs to just bring herself a little bit of calm and what better way to do so than to chew on some Gum Gum Boom by LeLutka. I made sure to use the styling hud on this beautiful hair by Lamb to bring the hair away from the face, no mishaps there – mind you a little eucalyptus oil can take care of gum in the hair.

The Forever Berry collection is collectible whether for planned nuptials or just a photographic inspiration such as this and while it is a gacha, the cost only leaves you more for the honeymoon.

LeLutka Oral Fixation – Gum Gum Boom! & Delights Cream

LeLutka - Oral Fixation

LeLutka - Gum Gum Boom & Delights Cream HUDS

Months of catching Mel and Thora just as they log off, it was like the sheepdog and the coyotes clocking in and out in a cartoon. So worth it though as I am now able to chew in public and make a mess of myself, these are SLife Goals! What am I talking about, well the LeLutka Oral Fixation release is only days away, and the first two items are the Delights Cream and the Gum Gum Boom.

These are interactive treats that work with your LeLutka Bento heads and are so much messy fun. The Delights Cream has a huge assortment of flavour choices, I changed my mind four different times during my pictures then asked Mel to change his gum flavour so we could be matchy.

Once you get all your flavours and toppings sorted you then have to make the executive decision to be a clean eater or a messy eater. You wear the napkin that is included if you go with messy and once you choose messy you select which face layer on your LeLutka head that you want to mess.  Then the fun begins, as you click on to enjoy the Delights Cream is randomly brought to your mouth, you like, you devour and then also randomly you may end up with either a small bit of Delights Cream on your upper lip or look out full on messification.

The animations will lick off the mess or the handy napkin will wipe you clean and take all the mess to its soft folds. You can have a break by selecting hold, or stop altogether, then if you want to take some still shots, you can use the lick or lick more buttons on the HUD.

Then with the Gum Gum Boom that Mel is wearing, you have all different flavours of that also, then you can adjust as needed – remember to wear the gum size that is the same as the teeth size you wear with your head – and you can chew only, stretch which I love love, and blow which is all three with bubbles. Stretch is my favourite because its just pushing your tongue through the gum which a lot of people do with chewing and bubble gums.  The variables are random and entertaining, I love the animations when the gum pops and how it maneuvers back into your mouth with the chews having the gum also move around in there, it is great to have that much realism.

I look forward to more Oral Fixation items from LeLutka,  these will be released at the start of the new week, so be ready.

No Deniling it

No Deniling it

I was fortunate enough to have the wonderful Blogger Sydd Sinister on my Facebook timeline today because she shared a post by AzaRiaChaNeL Adored from the blog Curvy Slives Matter. It featured some killer hair, that I just squealed over and had to run and buy. That then ended up the starter to my look. Bloggers often get inspired by other bloggers, it has always been the case, as we often spend time with each other, talk in groups, see each other out and about, or as in this case, see their post, and because crediting was so perfectly available off I went and shopped.

The hair is by Vanity Hair and is at this round of On9 which I had not been to since their new looking build, so nice. Got the hair, grabbed some other bits and pieces and then jetted back to my platform. The dress by Baiastice was the perfect accompaniment to the way the style was coming together, and then it just grew, with gold ink by Izzie’s, some tinting of the included tattoo face option in my LeLutka head HUD, and this great pose prop I have used in the past.

I then was able to feature this amazing ring set by Mandala that has been updated for bento hands,  and these amazing earrings that are at this round of Collabor88. The rings have metal options as well as the ability to hide and show all the various rings to create your own combinations.

I am also featuring one of the LeLutka skin appliers by Glam Affair as mentioned in a previous post, this one is Giada and has a really lovely beauty mark just under the eye. She also comes with amazing sharp eyebrows but as I was going with true black hair, I opted for the brows that come with the head. Adding one of the newer lipsticks also released by Glam Affair you really need to visit them with their new build and everything looking so stylish over there.

So many new skin delights released for the unveiling of the new Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant sim. Not only head appliers but also a whole new range of body skin appliers, with options of Normal, Small Breasts – this will work great for Slink Petite breast add-ons – Cleavage and then freckles versions of each, this eliminates the need to use tattoo layers for freckles which is a marvelous new feature.

There are also NEW TONES! This is especially important, as any head appliers going forward will come in these new tones, so you will need to pick up the new body appliers as well as head appliers, and the tones are available in 12 tones with options of very pale white – which would tint a treat for RP looks – to dark and various levels of tan in-between. I did pictures of all the tones, also using the freckles and smaller breast options with the normal mostly just so you could get a proper look. I did not use the cleavage as this gorgeous swimsuit by Mutresse is too separated for the reality of pushed together breasts. I do so love that we have so many options now in the Glam Affair appliers.

123456789101112Glam Affair SLink Appliers

I am wearing the new Gwen face option, and she is lovely. I am so torn between tone preferences, I am leaning towards 7 for the day to day, but kind of love the 9 and 10. Try them all I say. The new head appliers are also different than previous releases, these do not come with makeup options, but instead come with 4 brow options and no brows options, then 3 freckles options – these are on tattoo layer of your head – or you also have 2 contour options also on tattoo. As someone with freckles who also used to look very different when made up, having anything that detailed would mean your freckles are usually under your foundation anyway, so much more realistic.

I also applied some new lipstick that Glam Affair released for my main pic, you can get new lipsticks, new eyebrows, new eyeshadows so much newness for LeLutka wearers as well as other heads available that they cater to. I also had to go with a new hairstyle I bought from Tableau Vivant, it has a cute windblown locks look that you can toggle on or off. Both Stores have had a huge overhaul so be sure to visit.

Again about that swimsuit, it comes in the no frills and frills option, with so many wonderful texture options, I could not resiste showing as many combinations as I could. I love how sexy the suit is, but the frills just make it so girly and playful as well, no frills is more sporty, so much range in one cossie.

Fitday – Sweat City

Fitday - Sweat City

I was running around the grid tonight trying to really settle in to what would be a Friday theme, I did not think there would be enough French Fries to do a post every so often, so that was the end of that idea, and then it hit me that I needed to validate all my sweatpants purchases…and of course I did not end up in sweatpants for Fitday at all, but instead used the recently purchased at Limit8 Fox City Dance Hall, some older pieces of decor and danced myself into a sweat.

Thanks to Izzie’s for creating these great wet body and face appliers that cover a full range of bodies and heads, and just look really cool – or hot, you know what I meant. I also have on the droplets specular effects that come with the Slink bodies. These fantastic legwarmers are actually from a set that included sneakers so that they fit over them snugly, so I did a little liquifying in PS and smooshed them a little closer to my feet for the picture.

The leotard was actually a present from my partner, it is kind of a gamble when he buys me things, in two ways, not enough stores do back shots of pants, and he is not a fan of full covered bottoms, and the other gamble is if I already own it,  we have actually had that occur way too many times, but the bliss is that we have great taste not only in each other.

The hair is a group gift from Little Bones, there are a number of them set out in the store and a few new ones Ashia told me about today, which leads me to buy new hair, seriously me and hair, cannot ever blame me though. The skin is a beautiful skin by YS&YS it is Kira and she is so soft and lovely on the LeLutka Chloe head the mouth is puckery goodness.

Thirstday – Crossed Leather – Look Book

Thirstday - Crossed Leather - Look Book

Ashia and I were doing the Saturday Sale last weekend and we pretty much did the whole list, which if you have ever seen that list it is huge, so definitely an achievement. We got to Psycho Barbie and I ended up taking home half the store, without any strenuous work on my part at all, the store is well designed to stay in one spot and just buy everything.

I picked up this Hades Corset and not only does it fit my body divinely, it does not show anything, the hair in front of my chest in this situation is just because I wanted it to, not to hide anything. So if you have been looking for something as strapping as this, definitely give it a demo, because it comes in sizes for many many bodies, and comes in 7 colours with metal options in silver, gold and black.

It all went with seamlessly into a theme, with these amazing lashes by Rainbow Sundae that are in this months Look Book, they are very wiry lashes incredible work and then crosses hanging from your lower lid, really well done. Then a light lip tint omega applier by Song, because they are inside of the lips shape, they will most likely fit any heads that have Omega.

The leather the crosses and then these fantastic leather mules by Utopia Designs, the leather straps are nice and wide, very supportive for such a high heel, and studded with metal, they make for some very fine footwear.

I am using another great backdrop by WearHouse that is dead end and it is a hallway of doorways that lead to a staircase, the shadows and lighting I was able to achieve in the space was perfect, and I like how it is a narrow space, so you don’t feel like you have to fill it with anything but yourself. With the heels on I was a bit taller than the doors but with them being linked parts, I was able to go into edit and stretch them on their own for the right look. Easy to use and I enough space and interest to use again and again.

Whensday – Cocoa Denim

Whensday - Cocoa Denim

A Second stab at this theming my days’ thing, and as I am a day ahead of most of Second Life, it will truly confuse people, especially when it only just 2 minutes past Midnight into my Wednesday as it is. I played around with the wording and realised that ‘When’ is such a cute idea, as it means I can kind of emulate anywhere in time if I so desire. This look kind of morphed into a very sort of mid 70’s California Love Child look. With some feathers atop my head, and some feathers tickling my toes, it all came together well. Especially as this crown of feathers fit so well over this lovely straight style by Mina Hair.

The very noticeable difference in the post is my eyes, I am usually green-eyed in Second Life because when I joined the brown eyes were so flat and dark that I just looked as though I had holes in my head and green eyes and the red hair I started out with work. I tend to not touch my eyes either, I have worn LeLutka eyes since as far back as they made their first set, and each time they made new ones, I would kick and scream and finally give in to changing. Today though I wanted to show the lovely eyes by Avi Glam that are part of this months Look Book. There is a nice selection of colours and they come in three sizes of appliers. I am also wearing some eyeshadow/highlight and lipstick by Flaws also part of the Look Book. The eyeshadow options come in either just eyeshadow or with a highlight that adds some nice subtle shine to your face.

I used the blend options in the LeLutka Head HUD to lighten both the lipstick and the eyeshadow because they are very rich by default, but as it was daytime, I wanted to just give them more of a there but so there look. Which is perfect for day and then up with the slider and boogie the night away.

This top is by Vinyl and even though it is more of a modernish casual vibe, it actually is very in keeping with clothing of the 70’s. I had a few tops as a girl with the full pocket front where you could hold your own hands, and the pulls at the neckline was also a very popular idea, as it meant that clothing could be shaped depending on mood with the ties rather than with a lot of structural sewing.

Then down to these amazing cut off shorts by Blueberry, that have so many options in the fatpack that you will spend so much time looking at your bottom and playing around with the options of prints, colours of denim and then the added bonus of being able to actually put writing on your front and back of your shorts. It would have been far too corny had I written Sasypants across my pants. The belt also has texture change options and both stores palettes make me happy with coordination powers.

These boots are just something that made me giggle at first, then take a lot more notice and then fatpack. I have seen this style in the past, it has been attempted a few times by different stores as far back as sculpts, however, each time I would be kind of intrigued they just didn’t pull me in. These did. The upper and fringe and sole have texture options, and there are even some prints, the suede work is incredible and the fringing and feather adornment fantastic, my only wish was that I could change also the thong portion as that would have made my colour combos play even harder. The fact that the feather had a hint of blue in it calmed me down though – I do wish that had texture change options too, but we cannot have everything and they are really wonderful very Aussie Centric footwear, thongs in freezing weather but with covering up the leg, perfect.

Lastly, I was going to town with some backgrounds by WearHouse who I have blogged in the past with makeup, I am also wearing their Dolly Lashes, so cute. This is a street scene prop and it comes with stackable versions as well as texture maps for the posters so you can make your own and electric boxes and footpath and road and it is just great and easy to be inspired by. I ended up getting at least 6 different ones so you will see more of those soon.

Shoesday – Peach

Shoesday Peach

I like to ask things, does not mean I always get answered, but if it makes someone go ooo errrrr and actually do it themselves, that makes me happy.

How often do you use your teleport history and if you Blog or credit Photography, how often do you use it for Slurls? I use it all the time, not only to revisit somewhere but to grab the slurl on any event, or location store or otherwise that I have purchased something, knowing full well it is actually there because I was there buying it. The teleport history icon in firestorm is a genie lamp, if you do not see it at the bottom of your screen, then right click any of the icons down there choose toolbar buttons and then grab it and put it where it will best serve you.

You can type at the top any place you have been even going way back, and it will bring up a teleport option, right click it you will get the choice of teleport, more information or slurl, slurls are what we hyperlink so that your shopping is faster. More information will open the map which lets you also see if there are many on the sim already. The downside to it is that you search something it tells you you were there 6 days ago and you swear you were there yesterday and you realise your life is swooooshing past.

I was having a light hearted talk with myself earlier, I do that, and I decided that today was Shoesday, whether or not it will be at any other week is a mystery right now, but today it is. So the whole look started from the toes up and I love it, it is in all sense of the words just peachy. These adorable sandals by Ingenue, are a cork based delight, they are strappy but in the supportive way, they are cork based so they have that little retro thing going on, and they are so soft leathery looking they just made me happy.

Moving up to this adorable dress by Tee*fy that has a hud for changing the belt colours that was the perfect mix with the shoes, the dress also has amazing print options available, and I was standing there so long trying to decide which I liked best I almost wore them all – well technically I did as I went through them – I decided to bring some of the colour out more with these leggings by League that have appliers for your body and are still so pretty to wear. I cannot wait for baked on mesh just so I can wear the hell out of my league clothing again.

Accessories in the form of this beautiful bag by Baiastice really brought it all together for me, the cage of the bag has texture change options as well in the fatpack and the colours were perfectly in keeping with the palette. The bag also comes with hand hold, arm hold and shoulder holds, all for right side though, but not rigged so you can swap sides just not the animation part.

I am still enjoying the Anja skin by Pink Fuel in the current Look Book, with the addition of these natural lipglosses by Izzie’s that are so well suited to every daytime girly girl look. I do not often wear tattoos, but these lovely dandelion ones by Apocolyptic are very pretty and they are the guest of Vinyl at this round of Uber.

Happy Shoesday All♥
