Cinnamon & Chai – Chai Fluff n Stuff

Cinnamon & Chai - Chai  Fluff n Stuff

So this look came together in various ways, it started at one colour palette and then went in a completely different direction. It was all about the pants at first, I just really like the leatherwork and the style, and while the black was going to be easier, I kept leaning towards the blue. I had this awesome jacket in patterns options but really needed some solid so went to Marketplace and the yellow just jumped out at me and that was it, it was set the blue pants and yellow jacket I was a very happy me.

I have done some very odd things in this post though, well not really odd, just very Sasy. The top is from Sn@tch and while I went through roughly 60+ tops to find one I liked best, I did tint it to match the blue, yay for mod. I even have Sn@tch eyeshadow on and tinted that for a deeper blue. I had remembered that I wanted to visit C’est La Vie and realised that they had a booth at Shop n Hop (Open until 2nd Jan) and I ran over and bought some things, and grabbed the gift, not realising it would bring everything together and change the look to a lot more playful, how awesome is that pose for the hand holding the clutch, and it has colour texture options, but yay for yellow.

Then I pulled out this pomme hair attachments, and supersized them, moved them around a bit, and was very pleased with the result, but then I had some kind of ‘lets rez items’ from my inventory moments and got lost in that for about an hour and suddenly I had all of these random things I have made over the years littering my floor – I honestly do not even remember some of the things at all – but one item was a bow, and while it was for some Christmas things we made in the past, I instantly shrunk it down, added a tint and some specular shine and voila instant hairbows. Sometimes it is just that easy and fun to make yourself something that works with your look, and if you cannot make it yourself, and it is not something you can find in a store, check out Marketplace and see if anyone has made a full perms item you can play around with. Finishing it off with these great earrings by Midna that have so many colours and options, that yellow being one of them was a win win.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon White on White

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon Love

I mentioned the other day how I was racing over to get this new dress by Athor made for Cinnamon & Chai, and it surpassed my expectations. I grabbed the fatpack if the dress and the shoes, but decided to save the shoes for another post, instead wearing these great boots from Cinnamon & Chai.

So many laces, I am glad that in Second Life we have secret lacing elves that take care of such things for us, because otherwise it would take hours to get ready, and I am just not that kind of girl. The fit of the dress is amazing, the style suits the body superbly and I loved it on sight. Then the hard part was deciding which colour to wear and then finding out I could change the laces colours with the fatpack HUD I was even more invested, but the white on white just felt right.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon My Path

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon My Path

I will never get tired of bakes on mesh and now with a custom UV and the ability to one arm, one hand and one foot, not to just do things in the moment. Such as the case with my arm tattoo today, I whipped it up in PS and it just felt so perfect for me in the moment. I am going to take a long while to get over the losses I have experienced this year, but if I keep on a path that makes me feel better overall then you never know what can happen.

This dress is a stunning creation by a new to me brand Harmonia. They not only created this dress in superb colours, but the strap work fitting to the shoulders perfectly is just one of those things you take note of. I loved this colour on sight, and even added a tint to my hair to keep the look fluid. Just in time the Margot Slippers being updated to now include Cinnamon & Chai (redelivery if you already have them) gave me a chance to create a lovely look that may seem casual at first but definitely has that dance all night into the New Year vibe going on.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon Soft Kitty

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon Soft Kitty

Well didn’t I just have the most bizarre time zone confusion. I have been excited about an upcoming release by Athor at the Tres Chic event, and I tpd over and was not allowed on the land, and I honestly thought I was banned and for the life of me could not figure out how that would be possible. The event however starts on the 17th which it already is down here, so hence my confusion. I am relieved though, because one I do not want to be banned from anywhere and two I did not want to have to wait a month until the item was in the store. Lucky for me I already took some pics the other day of a gorgeous look, that I was yet to post on so here I am filling in that time.

I had mentioned getting this gorgeous dress from Flirt in a previous post, and it was the perfect dress for these New shoes from Cinnamon & Chai the extreme heels. These are gorgeous and come in either solid leathers pack or an exotic pack that has zebra and tiger prints and these cool crocodile textures that the materials make look amazing. The beauty of the shine on the leather reminded me of those amazing harnesses that .Shi made at this years hair fair, and turning off the headband on this lovely hair by Exile a hairstyle that not only has a head band, but options for duo tones and behind shoulders, left and right or forward, all the things I love in hair, it all came together perfectly…grabbing an old stole and I am off for a night on the town.

There are also a gift version of these shoes for Group and Subscribers to the Cinnamon & Chai store, and the shoes come with a Slink fit included, so whether a Cinnamon & Chai wearer or a Slink feet wearer you are sorted.

Cinnamon & Chai – Chai working it out

Cinnamon & Chai - Chai Step

Early on Blaxium created an item with Cinnamon & Chai sizing, and I instantly ran over to grab it, however the prude that I am was not going to be able to see myself in this fabulous leotard with one breast partially exposed. I was unable to get it out of my thoughts though, constantly thinking if only it was not a peek a boo look, if only…then I remembered who I am, I am Sasy, I can make this work. For it to work as needed today I am wearing the Chai version, now full disclosure, with minimal effort on my part I could have made the Cinnamon work also, as I have the resources in my own products that I could convert, but felt that the best thing to do was to show how versatile it is to have two options of body to use. The Chai body uses the SL uv as far as the feet, and so with some help from Sn@tch I ran back to Blaxium and grabbed the fatpack because this leotard is just too gorgeous not to want it in every colour.

Again full info, the wonderful ability to mod when perms allow, made it possible to shorten this tank, wear multiples of it, as it does have a sheer aspect to it, and then with the leggings I shortened them, so that everything worked well with the leotard. Then the pose worked out perfectly because honestly when one has an ample chest and one is working out, one in this very case is prone to potentially slipping out of its possible confinement, and that is why we wear enough options to preserve our modesty in the threat of that happening.

So while the style intention is not my usual cup of cocoa, it adds a realism that very much is, and for that reason alone it had to be shown, so thank you Blaxium for reminding me of who I am, and what delights my inventory holds.

Cinnamon & Chai – Camo not Ammo

Cinnamon & Chai - Camo not Ammo

I enjoy my inventory, it can be very giving in things that just make me happy in terms of creating looks that just seem to come together without a huge amount of sweat and tears. I was reminded by a friend that I had not yet blogged the camo pants I got at Freda the other week. Funnily enough at the time of said reminder I was standing in a huge warehouse event (so large I had to turn my draw distance way up just to see that there was more) trying on this gorgeous sweater by C’est La Vie that not only included both Slink body options but also Cinnamon & Chai, so I was overjoyed and ran full speed to get it. Not only does it have lovely soft colours to choose from but you get a fantastic hud for the bows so that you can change their colour and the combination for me was just perfection.

The pants are gorgeous not only in colours and there are so many combinations of camo and plain that I really stood there so long deciding, Freda’s store is fabulous and enticing and I found out that she has updated everything for Cinnamon & Chai so I will be running back over there as soon as possible. The shoes are part of the releases at the Cinnamon & Chai store, and because they were made with the feet animations in mind, you can actually make them the heights on the HUD if you like, which makes photography so fun.

I was planning on rezzing some bamboo behind me, ended up with this treehouse instead and some fabulous older bamboo oversized earrings from LaGyo that just made me super happy, and then topping it off a chance to wear the military hat/hair style by Slink.
Wanting a little more flavour I decided to look in my inventory for some face tattoos, and came up with this delight that is an older Pink Fuel face tattoo, it is much fainter than this and tintable, but I stacked about three on top of each other for some depth.
I am enjoying as always mixing older with new, and giving my inventory some much needed airing, we put things away, but occasionally they need to see the light of day.

Cinnamon & Chai – Glamour Girl

Cinnamon & Chai - Glamour Girl

Thanks to the incredible creations available, I was able to make my new Cinnamon & Chai look glamorous and then some. This new gown by Baiastice is at the Santa Inc event, I went there specifically for this gown and ended up so enamored by the gown and the colours available that I had to fatpack it, which was lucky for me, as I ended up using a colour that was not even one of the ones that I was finding hard to decide on. There are ten incredible colours extra in the fatpack so this gown will have you set for every occasion.
The Siren heels by Slink have been recently updated to include Cinnamon & Chai sizing so that was a bonus as the gold glitter version look great with this gown. I paired up this stunner hair accessory that I got at this years Hair Fair by Dahlia that is in two pieces so you can use both or just one, depending on the look you are going for, and paired it up with the Smolder Updo by Exile, this updo is fabulous, I have worn it to the beach in a bikini and to a ball in a gown so far, the perfect style to have on your wig stand.


I also stacked some AlaskaMetro shadows, I really like that she has included different percentages in the shadows, so I was able to wear a gold shadow and then use a 60% glitter over the top for a lovely effect, you should play around with those options when as she has gone through the trouble of including them.

My necklace by Kunglers brought it all home for me, such divine pieces they create, I do need some more rings however, but added an older Baiastice clutch instead.

Cinnamon & Chai – Day out

Cinnamon & Chai - Day Out

I do not think I have ever run all over SL chasing up all the items from one store as I did today. So many items at events, but I wanted to grab as many of the releases by Flirt that are made for Cinnamon & Chai as I could as I really like their recent releases and look forward to more for this body. I also was desperately wanting these hot pants by Exxess who I have always loved for hair but now am becoming a fan of her clothing as well, superb texturing and just beautiful styling.
The Gold buckle from the top lead me to matching up to the leather slides that change heights with the animation of the Cinnamon & Chai feet, which is super great for photos. The shorts also gave me metal options so I was able to gold accent throughout the ensemble and that always makes me super happy, I am a silver lover usually, but the top was with Gold, the rest worked out well.
I really like this top, I do wish though that it had an option for just the bolero on its own, but I will survive, or maybe ask them to consider it, you know me…

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon Asymmetry

I wanted to do a video, showing you all the features of Cinnamon & Chai but I am not ready for that yet, still too soon for me to chatter away. What I did do though was get carried away myself with the amazing Cinnamon UV and how easy it is to create something unique for yourself because of the Asymmetry options available for bakes on mesh layers (all Cinnamon layers have to be made using the tattoo system layer).

What is not well known is that every nail set I make is kept as layers, so something like tartan is usually around 50 layers of lines and so on just to create that one nail, I am a bit mental that way, but because I do all my nails by from scratch ( have used the occasional brush but I usually edit it so much it looks nothing like the original) that gives me the chance to run back and pull from things I have made in the past, such as using this flower to create a tattoo. Then creating chain links as a brush and so on, it was fun, and what is most exciting is not only the Asymmetry option as in no more mirroring of the arms, hands or feet, but also the seamless waist/back. The Cinnamon UV does not join until under the bottom, tops of thighs, so you have all of that clean space to work with. You can see on the Cinnamon & Chai website some of the tutorials that Siddean has created for Skin makers, clothing and tattoo makers to convert their existing work to Cinnamon & Chai, but also the UV and how you can just create for Cinnamon to make use of the non mirroring awesomeness.

As you can see in this picture, I have a waist tattoo and hip, then two different arm tattoos, no mirroring, again not a tattoo creator or artist I just wanted to see what I could do with the available options, and it was really easy and fun.

Here you see the waist has no seam, so you do not have to try and work out how much bigger or smaller the upper and lower parts have to be to create something with this much coverage, to me this will be a creators dream come true. I took my flower and just made it bigger and smaller and moved them around and coloured one in and voila (yay for keeping such good layers of everything).

At this point I am just doing stuff because I could, so I made the back spine tattoo, again no mid section seam to deal with, and the arms you can see are different. So much fun and the amount of effort that tattoo creators in SL put into their work, to finally have a great UV to really explore and create with, is going to be so exciting for many.

Showing off my animated feet by having one in pointe and one in kitten pose, but no additional mesh to do it, because the Cinnamon & Chai feet are animated, not individual feet. With that it means that you can create footwear or accessories that will move with the feet, not have to be made for each height. I also like that it would mean we can do some amazing things with Asymmetry there too, you just have to think it up.

This great bikini is one of the Cinnamon & Chai bikinis available in the Cinnamon & Chai store, and comes in beautiful colours with beads on the side.
