Cherry Tu Tu
Midori

A time for merryment and cheer, it is Christmas time after all. For some, or many that means a lot of parties, and just to help them along I decided to not just feature the Martini Glass with built in burlesque animations, but also added a little cocktail cheer for you to try out, if you are wanting some festive coloured drinks.

The glass is made by Luth Brodie of Reel Expression, honestly I don’t know why it is even called that anymore…my friends and I all call it Luth’s and she herself names her poses with Luth lol; you could totally save yourself 10 extra characters for the new year . Sillyness aside this glass is great, not only for picture taking, but for a prop for a club or even a store, for store models.

12 poses are able to be accessed by the drop down menu, also with the /1a command in chat, you can alter your rotation and placement in and on the glass, this comes in so handy as all of us are different shapes and sizes. I actually added the pathcut sphere to the inside of the glass and tinted and semi transparented it, just to have a full with cocktail look, even adding a smidge of glow. You may want to go even further with some sliced fruit or other such decorations.

Whatever you do, make it fun, it is that time of year after all. Whatever you do though, if you do make these drinks in your first life…. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.

Australians just love their sheepskin, probably not as much as the Kiwi’s do though *snickers* and then promises I am just teasing. We have always used sheepskin for clothing, it is the perfect warm in winter, cool in summer natural product. Sheepskin carseat covers are very common, and the infamous Ugg boots of course.

It is humorous that until Pamela Anderson was parading around between takes in them, they were actually a fashion DON”T for most of us down here. But most of us have them, and generally they were used as slippers in winter, I even accidently left the house in a pair once, and when I got out of the car and realised, I freaked out so badly that I flicked my foot so hard that my boot went careening across the car park.

Had that still been my reaction to sheepskin fashion, it would have definitely turned the moment I saw the Shearling Coats, these jackets are just fantastic, the style, fit and texture work is amazing… and so spot on to how this kind of coat would sit on the body.

The other really versatile item in this post are the Western boots, what is there not to love. It is not easy, well hasn’t been in the past to find really well created cowboy boots, especially girly ones that don’t lean to the too girly. Beautifully crafted with all the extras as usual, the ability to wear with or without the belt strap is just one of the features I love, because it is those little things that can really change your overall appeal to something.

A man that loves make up, is a wonderful thing. Kavar Cleanslate definitely has to be that guy, or he has a good ear for suggestions. Either way there is mucho love for the latest release by him of the Heart Shaped Box skins. Bow shaped lips, with a pouty look that usually lends itself to the most spoiled of petulant women, but with a can’t deny sultry look that could go back and forth through eras. Some of the make ups have a very vintage quality to them, and then there are some that are definitely our era so to speak. All of the names suggest a musical presence, and nothing can be more endearing than a song.

His first foray, I do hope wont be his last. I expect to see a great range of faces come forth from Kavar, as he has always struck me as very aware of his surroundings, and the needs of the women that make up parts of those surroundings.

Getting your western groove on is simple, and if you are feeling ” a little bit country ” like Newdoll this past week, then these looks can carry you there, without being too cheesey…not that there is anything wrong with cheese, I LOVE IT.

It is such an odd time of year for all the SALES that are going on…for me they will not really hit until after Christmas, because right now there will usually only be the enticing, spend your Christmas money with us, not our competitors…bargains.

One such SALE I went to the other night, had me kind of stunned at how quiet it was, but then again you can only own a whole store once, and so many have been die hard fans for so long, I was actually lucky in the fact that the items that were on sale were ones I didn’t have in all colours.

The Celestial Studios black friday sale, is actually on until the 4th as far as I know, and everything black is only 25L , so it was a bargain to pick up a few things I didn’t already have, and especially as I didn’t have the black version of all three of my favourite pairs of pants from there.

Anyways, moving on, I am showing mainly Beauty Avatar today, but I mixed everything up, to show the versatility of it all. I love mixing and matching, you wouldn’t know it to see me half the time, but that is rollover from constantly changing back to work clothes mid tp lol, it became a habit to not spend time to put together a proper ‘look’ to only be ripped back out of it.

I love the style of the pieces, they do make great backdrops for whole looks, as well as worn as they come. I really like the texture work, the actual style of and in some cases sheen. It isn’t always easy to put together a great fabric with a stylish concept, and these have gone hand in hand with eachother.

The other Beauty Avatar item I am wearing is the Daria skin, this skin is lip smackingly rawr worthy. Soft in all the right places, fit looking but without too much tone to the body shading. I really like the facial features on this skin, as well as the breathtaking lipstick and eyeshadows, but it truly is the high gloss of the lips that makes such an impression.

All the shoes that I am wearing are available at Footwear Expo 2009, there are only a few days left of this annual event, and as a percentage of money from each and every store there goes to help kids this Christmas, it really is worth it to take a look, and maybe pic up some shoes you may have wanted in the past, or something new.

Definitely make time to really explore Beauty Avatar, Whimsy and I helped a girl find a dress there last week or the week before, and you can really lose yourself in all the label has to offer. Take time also to check out the beautiful fountain in the courtyard between areas, it is a trunktacular creation.

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.

I win with Eclat

LLL
LLL2
LLL3
LLL4

I WIN! I WIN! I WIN!

Newness abounds with this post, you are going to want to know in advance all the fabulous options that could be yours.

Everything new takes time, and a lot of hard work. One of the craziest of tasks in Second Life is a rebuild. There is so much more involved than just plonking down a new structure, but making sure that all your vendors are placed against the walls properly, that they even fit in each section, and OMGoodness do they look good against the new sleek build.

So many things change, and during all of that you’re possibly even planning new releases. That is the case of LeLutka for the last few months, they have been diligently planning a major rebuild, and I cannot wait until tomorrow to see it.

With this unveiling of build, comes the revealing of the Eclat skins, a New line of not only a fabulous face, but a huge array of options. One of which is of course why I win :P, yes the Eclat skin comes SHAVEDDDDDDDDDD woohooo.  So now for those of you that love your LeLutka skins, but have had to be careful with how low your clothing can go , now you do not need to despair any longer.

Other fabulous options, are freckles, dark brows, light brows, dark and light hair bases and on separate layers, not one, not two but THREE cleavage volumizers. The three options give you slight variations on how delectable your cleavage can look, as it will always depend on what you are wearing as to what option is used, if you are wearing a tight knit that has a low cleavage, well then option one would be enough, but if wearing some latex or a wired bra top, then you are going to want to perhaps go with three.

The new Eclat skins are just lovely, full lips, and dramatic eyes, with a heavier brow than in the past…which I like in skins such as these for added character. The stomach is soft but tight, and will look great in all sorts of revealing clothing. You will have to make sure that as soon as the doors reopen for LeLutka tomorrow that you are ready to DEMO DEMO DEMO.

All the clothing I am wearing is also from LeLutka, and I have to admit it has baffled me for a bit how I was going to show Ontibile the last pictures dress. I don’t show, and as this is a dress that makes it hard not too, I was leaving it for inspiration. Well that came today, with the mixing of the black and the white dress , taking off the sleeves, and adding a corset under layer from Insolence.

Definitely inspired by the Neyya shoes from Maitreya, when putting these together I was so wanting a heel toe cap look, and not only did that happen, but I also got grey/black which I love and actually cheated for a full day before they were released by wearing them at home – I rarely do that , so it made me feel very naughty lol.

I love the combination of the two dresses, and there are so many things you can do to achieve this look yourself, even without having a second dress.

The stomper boots from The Abyss are my fav at the moment, clomping around in them all week has been my joy. I have had the baby pink since the beginning of the year when the Aria full avatar was released, but I noticed recently that the boots were sold separately in all sorts of fabulous colours, and the price is insanely bargainish.

So while you are waiting for the re-opening, spin by the other stores mentioned, and get everything else lol.
