    Wear Gray has started, this event has been dreamt about and organised for months now. The contact person I know of is Sanura Snowpaw, and her dedication to this cause has been beautiful to watch from afar. There are so many wonderful exclusives that you can see teasers of on the website. I have not been in world long enough to get over there this weekend, but cannot wait to attend.

    Today’s post was supposed to be yesterdays, but I logged off for a day due to RL. The hair is all from Dernier Cri, their Hair Fair styles are just beautiful, and so luxurious. I decided to wear them with the Dernier Cri skins Charlotte which I haven’t worn for a while and just love, ever since it was a gift skin for halloween in its Zombie form. Dernier Cri has the dye pack system that just makes changing hair colours a breeze, it has changed a lot since the original conception of it, and rightly so, as Asuka has been sure to keep up with todays wants and needs of the residents of Second Life.

    It has been interesting watching how Dernier Cri has evolved especially as it came in island and all from the teen grid, Asuka has always been an inspiration on how to do things the right way.

    All of the clothing – except the shrug – I am wearing is new Fishy Strawberry content, Fae has been absent for a while, and noticibly so, but this new release more than makes up for it, the style and detailing is superb, and I always love when she releases accessories, and these belts are just great.

    Bandana Day will be the 19th of September, if you haven’t already purchased your bandanas from Hair Fair, make sure to go back and grab lots for you and friends. They are scattered around the sims, but also on two of the main sims pathways down the middle. 50L each and transfer, and such an incredible showing of resident unity.

    WOOOHOOO Mannequin skins, with a kind of kinky twist I guess lol.

    While I won’t be needing the xrated version of these skins, they do make great RP skins, or work perfectly for showing products. So as I had doing a window display in my head for the past few days now, this was the perfect excuse to give it a whirl. I am not a hundred percent happy with my layout, for one I should have a door in there somewhere so that the windowdresser person can get in and out to change the windows, but lets pretend these ones open from the front, and that if that was true the window wouldn’t be too heavy for the hinge and fall and crush my foot.

    Yes these are things I think about, it is Mel and Fia’s fault, they both instilled in me too much of the ‘ It has to be possible” even in this virtual world, if you are trying to create something based on reality, you kind of cannot cheat. how about a sliding door mechanism? where the glass slides up above on rollers of some sort, hiding in the frame work? Nah, now I worry about the power going out and the poor window person getting trapped in there with no oxygen * Le Sighs.

    Ok ignore all of that and lets get to the goodly stuff. So the skin is a new release by Adam n Eve and is a liquid metal style effect, there is actually a gold version as well, these are very cool, and just the thing to show off the Rosamund Gowns. Now while I didn’t ask for confirmation, I am going to say that the gown is named after Rosamund the Mistress of King Henry II, mostly because Sachi is from the UK so it works with my story. Either way it is a lovely gown with a pretty veil look and even has a kind of spanish thing going on there.

    Coming back to the street though we have the Mei Li skin, an asian skin by Adam n Eve also that Sachi keeps tweaking. I remember actually blogging one of her asian skins in 2007, back when it was almost impossible to find ethnic skins. Adam n Eve has always striven to cover as much as possible when it comes to content. The skins now have a freckle option on the tattoo layer, as well as all the other usual extras an A&E skin has. The body is very toned, and while that is a popular look from many, I do prefer options in that area, especially a little softer, so that all shapes get the benefit.

    That is why DEMOS rock right, whoever came up with the DEMO idea for skins, is someone we should really appreciate.

    The hair I am wearing in the pics is all by Dernier Cri, it is that time of the year when Asuka has more time off College and works on her store YAY. Looking forward to more fab styles like these ones. I have to admit I still get such a kick out of watching the hair dye process in her wigs.

    All of the Jewelry I am wearing is from Essentia, they are having a 50% off everything SALE until 7th June and seriously you have to buy everything, because it is all incredibly crafted. There are demos to try on which is such an awesome way to look at Jewerlry and Accessories. Drag your partner over and have a look for them also, there are Unisex pieces also.

    Romper Domper Doo


    Sales are always fun, and even better when you have been meaning to go over and get your fix for ages and haven’t had a chance. The other things that are too much fun, are new AO’s . The other day I got one, and was attending a meeting and just giggling myself silly, while I bent and stretched and seriously exhausted my avatar and others watching me.

    The new AO is one of two recently released by Body Language. Romp is a definite no standing still styled AO. It has so much movement, and most of it is fitness like in nature. What better way to show off the new shorts by Boom I thought, so that was my first play today…also handy that I got fab new visors from Cobrahive this week. They are the store having a huge 50% off sale at the moment, and if you haven’t indulged you need to. Unisexy content for the win, so you can take a group of friends over and have a shopping party.

    Also new and a definite throwback to the 80’s are the sneakers by Anexx, these are reebokesque for sure. Everything about them is fun, the fringe on the sides, the beaded ends to the hang down parts, and the three different options, plain, paisley or rose print on the sides to these adorable hightops.

    Even MORE 80’s are the Denim Boots also by Anezz, wow talk about flashbacks, these were so popular back then. One of my best had a pair a bit lower and looser than these, and the funniest part about the jeans like boots was the pocket replica portion actually worked as a pocket, so storing your ID and such for the night was totally taken care of.

    The Riddle dress and coat combos are not only stylin for colder days, and yeah down here we are moving into that territory, but the coat itself is a separate wearable that will come in handy for so many different looks. Riddle does such lovely dresses that you could probably interchange the coat with other styles such as a big favourite their argyle ones.

    The Cozy Scarves are just too divine. Buttoned or unbuttoned this accessory is fantastic. You could ad so much to an item with this, totally changing the overall look of a garment. I decided to wear them with the gorgeous Rhia dresses that for me are so original Star Trek looking.

    The style is simple and just the right type of contrast, with Milla taking into consideration not only all layers , but sizes as well, with the premade prims portions in size options as well as mod. Pairing them up with her Pia leggings, aren’t the cutouts just adorable, I really hope she didn’t do those cutouts one box at a time, because we need her eyes to stay clear and focused for lots more beautiful releases to come.

    I stress so much about how long it can take me to get to a release, but sometimes it is a bonus that I did, with the buttoned look of the scarves, and the two tone look of the dresses working so well with the Pursay boots buttoned version by Perse. I cheated a bit here though and went with the Sasy Chic shoes in the noir for the second look, because I could and I did .

    I had to wear the eyewrap for this look first off, because wasn’t there always some sinister chick in Star Trek that appeared a goody and then wasn’t, and they for some reason are always missing eyes, or a hand or something peculiar like that – or maybe I am just mixing all my baddies together lol – regardless it is another item from Cobrahive that is just fab.

    The Faded tunics by Doppelganger have that at first male oversized shirt look to them, and honestly when is that ever a bad thing. I was watching Greek the other night and apparently it’s a big turn on for men to see women in their stuff – ok it was more about dress shirts but shhhh – what I really liked was that all the colours went so well with the snowdrift boots by Kalnins. Even though I very very much would love more colour options in these boots, the ones preset into the hud worked so well for these.

    Adding the big waist belts to cinch the look together, I am all ready for a day or night out with my snuggled footsies.

    All of the hair I am wearing for this post is by HCT, I was a bit upset in convo the other day to hear that someone thought that Babyboo hadn’t been making hair. She has been in and out of SL of late, but she does as much as she can when she is here, and regardless of new or old her styles are still so lovely.

    Also lovely are the Charlotte skins by Dernier Cri, the make up range is fun and interestingly named, and I just love the body detailing, so when looking all fit for the shorts they were an easy choice.

    * RIP Corey Haim thank you for making my 80’s crush on you something special. Your movies were amazing, and Lost Boys is not even the first that comes to mind. *

    blog – Sexy and Serious


    Being able to find a store that caters to all your clothing needs is a great find. Back in the day, there seemed to be a fear of branching out into other genres, and I remember the backlash that came about when one well known designer dared to make something that wasn’t the norm. Her explanation was the real need to be able to change what you make, just so that you can rekindle the passion for it.

    So excited today, I got the dropdown I have been waiting for for months, Hair Fair 2010 broke mental soil today…it is going to be a while before anything is sent out or done publicly, but that is the way these things work. I cannot wait to get started, Hair Fair is always such a HUGE event, and I love being part of it every year.

    A store that touches on all sorts of clothing needs is SySy Designs, SySy has a real passion for all kinds of looks and it shows in her work. One thing that she does dabble in most is clothing for women with an active social life, the ones that actually go out dancing, on dates and to events throughout the grid. Sexy and alluring, and moving from your sexy cocktail frock to hot disco dress and then weaving in and out of casual to formal, SySy taps into it all.

    Because I felt nostalgic for Hair Fair, I went through and grabbed some styles I remembered from the last one. The second style I did edit – Yay mod – I was able to alpha the hair sticks so that they didn’t show as I prefer the lines of the style without, and how delish it is.

    Enjoying a spin in the Belleza Alyson skins again, the make ups work really well for all the different styles of clothing, and the pouty lips are just gorgeous.

    blog – Wing! Wing! why don’t you give me a call

    Flying Deer
    Flying Deer2

    I am wing friendly, yes it is true because Kala deemed it to be. I am actually flattered by that, the concept of being something friendly is really nice, and that fact that it is my blogging that makes it so is something that I will be always proud of…so thank you Kala for making me smile amongst a week full of insane Diva’s.

    Who can blame me though, I mean the wings that have been produced by Material Squirrel creator Kala Bijoux have now and always been such top quality. Watching her adapt to not only sculpties but different technology over the years, and her professionalism has always been of the utmost customer care.

    These twig wings are so delightful and the pearled texture on the wing itself is gorgeous. Teaming them up with the latest release by Scribble, how awesome is that store, I have loved watching how Scribble just does it’s own thing, no fads here just good clean fun…unless of course you find a way to turn their latest notepaper into dirty little messages.

    Last night I took Justice to Fantasia, I hadn’t been in a while, and I knew that she would love the creations there. Sure enough she did, and I ended up grabbing a few pieces myself. All of the styles in the Fantasia store – and Elementals next door – are generally geared towards your Gorean clientelle, but seriously I am so not letting them have this creator all to themselves. Both dresses I am wearing are from there, and are sooooo sexy.

    I have a theory that the Gorean girls in this group are all cheeky little minxes, because the styles that Dream creates for them are like NO Gor I have seen in my four years here. The crochet dress is perfection, revealing and keeping you covered all at the same time.

    I am again wearing the Charlotte skin by Dernier Cri, these make ups come from the Valley theme and they are just beautiful. The face in this skin is so intriguing the more time you spend in it, the more you can honestly find to adore. Totally the right tones of make up, and soft smokey sweeps of the brush to get the look just right.

    Time to Shop ……. asta la pasta as Jussy would say.

    blog – Erotika


    Yes it is true, if you are ever wanting to shoot a garage calender, or porn lol this AO is for you. Seriously the poses and jumps and hovers are dangerous. I kept expecting to get in trouble for suggestive body language, then I remembered I was at home and the cops couldn’t get past my security orb, and if they did Fia would snack on them.

    It isn’t called Erotika for nothing. I wanted to show the latest delights from LAQ, and I was going to do the usual all faces thing, but it was wayyyy too much fun pretending I was in a dirty calender shoot. Aren’t you all lucky I used up all my body oil in the last post :P.

    When I tried on the hair I am wearing from Dernier Cri, I told Sofia that it was like I had just been shagged, it definitely has that morning after tousled look to it that only a great big bang can achieve.There are two kinds of great hair, the ocean spray dried from the sun wringlets, and the fantastic sex waves, you know it’s true.

    Anyway, this hair, that skin and a fantastic bikini while walking in the incredibly sexy shoes by Maitreya. Honestly if I could right now, I would walk straight into WOW like this and hunt down Mel. There are many things to love about this kini, the first is the colour range and style, then there is the adorable ties…but my fav bit is the detailing that runs along the inner cheek, that allows for a nice tight buns look.

    Speaking of tight though, as soon as I saw the AO kick into the pose in pic three, I knew I had to dig around for the cleavage enhancers also from LAQ for their own skins…see there is so much realism there, if I was doing that pose and didn’t have them on it would be odd lol.

    Get thee to LAQ the Bikini is from there too, but honestly Tasha2 is a beautiful addition to the Glow skins line, if you already have Tasha you are going to love the new make ups. If you don’t then get thee to a demo.

    blog – Doomed to dangle



    As soon as I saw the items I am showing today, I knew that they were going to compliment eachother so well. Feeling very earthy, and natural these combination’s allow you to feel free and fresh. MInd you right now I am not feeling free or fresh. Mel has just informed me that it takes me roughly on average 1.5 minutes a log in – due to my inventory – which comes to about 60 hours a year *fans self*.

    I saw the first dress on Tori over at BareRose and it was instant love. But I also knew that it was the separate pieces that I would have plenty of fun with…and at triple the price it is so worth it for that belt. The belt does NOT come on its own, you will have to edit it from the skirt…as it is not copy I had to trash one of the colours I could do without. Even if you don’t want to do that, you could always buy a second set and do it to the copies. It really is easy, and such a bargain.

    I had to show how versatile it can be, wearing it with a stunning top which was one of my first purchases from Boom when they had a tiny store …I had so much fun shopping there that night with Newdolly, I still remember it <3.

    The second dress was also adored from up high, by this stage I was hovering with Tori in the store. I knew that the two dresses were not only something beautiful and easy to add to, but that I would love to have them easily on hand. Whimsy was of the same reaction, informing me that last summer she spent every other day in her Summer Goddess dress

    The dress comes with its own necklace of a very unhappy looking sun lol, but I opted for some beautiful jewelry by Dark Mouse, where the design was very similar.

    Now about the beautiful skins, as I said the items today for me were very harmonious with each other. As in the past, the skins by Dernier Cri creator have a youthful exuberance to them. I really enjoy their character filled faces, looking all sexy and yet innocent all at the same time. While you could in fact dress up to the nines with this skin on, it really is an everyday all day skin. For those that don’t want that constant made up look it definitely hits the target.

    I went hair shopping at Analog Dog earlier today, and picked up this gorgeous style called Lemon. I was a bit surprised to see how her hair packs are now structured, goes to show that I haven’t been there often enough I guess.

    blog – dance I said

    An5 copy

    wp-header-exposhoe fair

    An interesting thought reared it’s head earlier today. The idea of culling your inventory just to make it less of a burden on the asset servers. Now Mel and I discuss this every other day, believe me that is truly how often he picks on me about mine.

    Actually that’s not even accurate, it would be every day. Even Whimsy cops it from him, and hers and mine are almost the same in size. Whimsy scared the hell out of me last week, declaring that if it was causing a strain – Mel says that when I log back in after a crash the sim stalls – then eventually her and I wont be able to be on the same sim; at the same time.

    Ashia is more brutal with hers, she gets all powered up and starts deleting things left, right and centre, mind you though she freaks me out by not even looking at what she is deleting. Which recently meant she had to buy something she had previously owned.

    Luna mentioned in a plurk that came up about it, that she culls hers to less than 30 (I think it was) and that if she doesn’t use it in 6 months it is gone.

    I am sorry but NO WAY JOSE! I cannot go that low, never ever ever. Lately I have been going back and forth in my inventory to show older and new items together… as I always say ‘Everything Old is New to Someone”. I have gotten rid of items that are of no use to me at all, I know I have to completely strip down my furniture folder and what not…I did also get rid of over 3000 wigs recently from one designer, just because of all the colour options I wouldn’t wear…but I do have them backed up in boxes ‘just in case’.

    I know it is out of hand, and I know I am a horder lol. But my inventory is my timeline here just as much as my blogs are. I have items from every store I have managed – most of those are boxed unless needed – I cannot imagine not being able to reach into it and pull out an item I know would be perfect for a pic, or blog post regardless of its age.

    The absolute beauty of NO TRANSFER items is the ability to unpack, wear, and delete…just make very sure you kept the box. No Transfer means COPY, which means UNLIMITED amounts of said item. Example is the gown I unpacked again today to wear, the deep red one, that I modified so you could see my shoes. I have had that archived in the red for probably a year, the black is left out. Now I will delete the folder, because I know I have it safely boxed.

    There is so much of that that you can do as a consumer, and so much that can be done to ensure that is easier as a creator. You see many are against boxed items, usually because they want to see what they are getting with an item, and that is fair enough.

    But things such as fat packs etc, are better off as seperate boxes, yes you can right click take copy your single vendors and pop them into your fat pack vendor DONE, it is as simple as that. Creators please don’t make your boxes no copy though, when the items inside of it are no transfer, it is a bit dangerous to make the box they travel in different perms.

    Anywho, once you unpack and wear, you can delete, just again be sure you have a back up box that actually does contain the items ready for next time. This also applies for high price items, UNLIMITED UNPACKS, if you mod it and mess it up, unpack another one, if you cannot find all the pieces, unpack another one.

    If you spend a bit more than you are used to, and you feel that that item is something you would hate to lose, if it didn’t come in a box, then before you do anything else, make a box and drag copies of the items into it, name it exactly as it is on the item folder and save it to a different folder. I know of some people that sink valuables under the house lol.

    Anyway enough of all that.

    The shoes I have on were created just after the opening of the Footwear Expo, so they are available at the store and the fair, in different colour sets. This set is of course the darker tones that I asked Siddean to release, for those of us who love our ballet shoes with an edgier colour base.

    I was also lucky enough to choose the name of them, seeing as Ashia and I are both lovers of our ballet stuffs, I wanted them to be named after her, if Siddean liked the idea… she did, so once they were remade in the darker colours, and ready for release I bought a gift pack for Ashia, and lol she didn’t believe they were named that, she thought it was just so she could find them in her inventory that Siddean had edited the folder, and that is why she deserved them.

    My first look was inspired by the movies, you know when you see a dancing movie, there is always that teacher/instructor that was a ballerina when she was younger yadda yadda , and she just has such a lovely graceful style about her, well that’s what I was going for with this look.

    Modified the skirt on the second, so that you could see the gorgeous blood red slippers. The gown is beautiful full length, but something like this under is a perfect shoe to dance the night away. The third look could be ‘ More strippers are classically trained than you think ” look, lol but it was just something fabulous fun and silver to wear with the shoes..but if you want to call it that look go right ahead.

    The skin is NEW and beautiful, I am not only loving the usual features of Laq skins, but the make ups on the Ania are just a bit different than the usual I believe. Mallory has added an incredible gloss effect to the lips, and the colour combination’s are just perfect. I did notice more colour this time around in the eyes especially, glad to see a beautiful green shadow amongst the pack.

    Incredibly lined lids, and a really perfect under brow highlighted shadow look , that is not easy to do with the template the way it is. Mallory does her make up like someone who knows and spends time doing their own. There are such little hints at colour and shading, that can really make your eyes stand out, and it takes skill to do that.

    Ania is again a more mature version of the Glow skins, sometimes depending on shape others in the range tend to side with a more youthful exuberance, so if that has been a concern to you in the past, then you should check out Ania for sure.

    All the hair in the post, old and new is from Exile. All those lovely curls framing the face are such fun, and I really like that tousled lived in look for hair, cannot be too perfect all the time, can we.

    A Vixen


    More make ups to an already existing skinline, what could be better. With such incredibly inviting make ups to choose from it was a tad difficult to not keep taking pics today, and wow did I take a lot. So much so that I broke this post up into three, so as not to lose my way with info.

    The Vixen II skin by Gala is one of my favourites, they are all incredibly inviting, but there is something so incredibly beautiful about this skin, and now that it is about to be released with new make ups at Skin/Shape fair, it just got a whole lot better.

    The body of the  Gala skin is beautifuly toned and rounded, in all the right places. I have such a thing for the Gala breast shading, as it has a wonderful and natural look about it. When you aren’t wearing tight fabrics, or the cleavage is a bit deeper than usual, they have a great and realistic look. Then when you do have tight, and lifted, they actually look as such.

    With the new make ups in the Vixen II range, the lips are so deliciously glossy, and all the eye make up and extra detailing just enhances the whole experience.

    Another huge fan of  Gala skins, is CK Winx of Luck Inc, so I decided to team both stores up together for this post. The extra short and delightfully dipped mini dresses come in prints and solids, to be honest I can’t really choose a favourite as both have their time and place. I must admit to loving the brown with dots option though, those pink polka dots with the J’s round toe Long Boots in pink is just awesome.

    Already a huge fan of the ankle boots by J’s these long ones are divine. They not only come in the gorgeous array of leather colours, but with the menu system you have the choice of square and solid heel or a stiletto heel, with and without belted strap as well.

    Back to the dresses, I really like how even though in the vertical stripes one, I manage to look even curvier, which is a bonus , and in the Gala skin that just gives such a healthy and alluring look. Speaking of looks, my Thaw eyes by Fusemelon are now actually available – wooohooo – the Fusemelon store rebranded from Philotic Energy, opened its doors today, and the sim is wonderful.

    I realised while in the middle of pic taking, that I hadn’t seen an announcement of items from Luck Inc for a while and thought that can’t be right, so I tpd over and sure enough things I had missed. The low rise Mini jeans skirt is just perfect to show off my Connect Me piercings from Skream. I had put these piercings on a few times to show you, but every time the clothing just wasn’t low enough , until now lol.

    I grabbed the Leo top from one of the Naughty dress sets also by Luck Inc and just had to , had to get me some Half fishnets , these are so cool, and there are many many options in the pack. It is great that you can do things to one side of the lower body, I do wish though that you could do the same for the upper.

    I changed into some LeLutka for this next, more revealing picture of the skins, the Zoe bikini’s are bright and beautifully colourful, they also have just that right kind of pull for the look of this skin. The poses I used for this last picture are part of the latest AO from Red Queen which is the super fun Bytch AO , this AO is not for the shy, it is all spunk.

    These skins will be released at the Skin/Shape Fair that starts on Saturday so be sure to grab yourself some demos of everything and enjoy the fair.

    A** Hugs


    The majority of todays items are from the same stylish store, I was able to visit early last month, and yet until now hadn’t really been able to make the most of that visit. Shame on me, really truly. What is the most pleasurable about the shopping experience, is the overall range of skill within its many, many walls.

    From shoes, to handbags, Jewelry and clothing, with the recent addition of a new range of beautiful skins.

    With Hair Fair in full swing, it is really nice to see some changes in the methods that stores have used in the past. Dernier Cri has had the dye pack method for some time now, this being the second Hair Fair the store has been part of. Now instead of buying as many wigs as you need to make a pack, only choosing one colour that dyes permanently, you now have one pack with a beautiful assortment of colours that dye back and forth on the one wig, this is actually a much better deal financially than in the past, unless of course you only wore one of their colours ever.

    All three styles are from their Hair Fair 2009 release, and I am looking forward to seeing what Asuka has in store for us with the summer break. Michelle, Kim and Jenelle are the names of the three styles top to bottom. All three have a lovely full effect, and work really well casual or dressy.

    The style of clothing as you can see is the same, dressy is definitely the style of choice for Baiastice. I am wearing the divine Blue Twill set, with System skirt love in a highwaisted style look. Beautiful lace shirt underneath, and the added layer of a petrol blue bra from Dutch Touch.

    The shine in the fabric is even lovelier when worn with the Querelle shoes also from the same store, the shine and strappy pointed toes style, all melds well together.

    In the next picture I blended the Silk Hug in white pearl together with the long Gloves from Fleur, the scarlet contrast with the pearlised gold look is a beautiful way to go against the safe black look. As you can see the dress is somewhat revealing, and with it being sculpted you will need to modify, but they have done some of the work for you by adding sizes 25 – 65 breast sized options going up in multiples of ten.

    With the very glam look, I had to take it further by adding the Lotus Tiara from the Lotus set from Bare Rose, because sometimes you just need to dress like a Princess. For more shiny and definitely more red, the Natasha shoes from Tesla are delightful, not adding the straps this time, but for a sleeker look.

    As you can also see with this dress, and so far with the faces, the Donnarama Gloss skins are just gorgeous, the shading on the bodies is beautiful, and the make up is HOT HOT HOT. The detailing around the eyes in the make ups is just gorgeous and you will find yourselves captivated by the choices.

    Going out on a date, or for drinks with friends this next combination is a win. The Soft Silk top in silver is a lovely kerchief style top, with the added bonus of three different metals choker attachment, that holds the soft and silky fabric in place – or at least the illusion of it.

    Definitely a favourite is the Sophisticated Grey Pants, a mix of sculpted pieces, with flowing ties and really well crafted pieces, create these dressy shorts. These come in many other colours, and they are just wonderful, great for the upcoming warmer evenings without losing that stylish look of the evening.

    As I mentioned Baiastice also has handbags, and the Crocodile Bag is just one of the many I fell for on my visit. It’s a smaller bag than I would think of for a bag of this style, but the fun part is that it comes with a resizer script, so the bonus is that it enlarges fabulously, so if in need of a carryall or overnighter, a few clicks on the bag and you are done.

    Make sure you try on the skins at Baiastice as soon as you can, the lips are just gorgous, and it has brow options and all, so it should work for all types of skin fans.
