Roslin Petion of Fleur always has this insane ability to catch me on a posestand, it used to be not so strange as I was pic taking all day for a long time, but the last few times it has been bloggers fate for sure.
I was one pic in and as soon as I saw the New Shoujo skins I knew I had to start over.
The post today is items that are featured at this years Relay for Life Clothing Fair 2009. HERE Is a list of all the sims and the stores that are featured on each one, tomorrow is the last day, so make sure you head on over.
This first dress is the VR Foundry Relay for Life item, during the fair; the money from each sale of the Deep Red Fantasy Dress will go to Relay for Life. So many people I know, and people I have come across just loved the Black Fantasy, so to have such a deep and gorgeous Red available now is a MUST HAVE!, but I have been informed that there are other colours to come soon as they have been requested by all the Fantasy fans.
The Deep Red Fantasy Dress comes with not only the long and sexy dress, but also the sheer crossover straps teddy which you can wear seperately and is just a lovely extra. The other extra and something I wear often with pants, shorts whatever, is the incredibly delicate belly chain that comes with the Fantasy dress. So remember all sales during the fair of this dress in the deep red will go to RFL.
The hair is an older style from ETD but so elegant, and is the Anisa style, ETD is still under construction but soon to be re-opening.
This is not one of the New Fleur Skins but an older one, the Vivant Lalique which is so sultry and the perfect colour blend for this dress, there are many beautiful deep make ups at Fleur, the newer ones are very light and incredibly delicate, sooo gorgeous but I wanted to wear this one for this dress.
The Medalion Set of Earrings and Bracelet, and the Burgundy Hair Rose are all by Essentia, and well you know I think they are Must Haves, there are DEMOS at the Essentia Main Store.
The Shoes I am wearing are brand new today, they are the Caged Platforms by SLink, and as they are SLink shoes that means they have feet. Since the Glamour Shoes I have shown in the past SLink shoes have gone even further in the HUD additions.
Motivated by how VR Foundry Posestand HUD has two sides that rotate depending on need, the Omni HUD that comes with the SLink Shoes now flips around to give so many more options, and WOW what options. Not only do you get the tintable skin options for the feet, but there are so many incredible extras for the shoes.
Lockable Feet is an option that is similar to the Boot Fixer, giving the ankles an animation keeping them in place so that straps and the tops of the sculpted foot don’t interfere with your stylish look. But not only lockable ankles but also now the addition of Pointe, so that those that are going with the bare foot look from SLInk can kneel or sit coyly and it will only enhance the experience.
More metal options for the incredible prim work of the Caged Platform Heels themselves, and the amazing detailing up the front of the foot into the straps. More Toering options for left and right or without. A huge assortment of toepolish colours, as well as the addition of Nail Art for the larger toes.
Now also with the addition of stocking toes, for when tinting feet to match stockings or pantyhose you may be wearing, now I am not a huge fan of open toed and stockings, but in some cases it is acceptable it depends on the shoes, but the fact you can do it rocks lol. There is also a slider resizer for those that don’t want to feel that size 0 feet is the only option.
The prim work as stated is just incredible on these shoes, each part of the cage work is individual primmage, and it really shows the dedication that Siddean has to making our feet feel treasured and pampered.
I have seen people in chat – which makes me cringe – comment on the negatives of prim toes/feet etc, and it is always about how hard it is to tint them etc, just remember something very very important, you cannot get them 100% spot on, because every single skin uses different methods to reach the desired tones, every single person in SL is seeing SL differently than you, it will never matter if you are all using the exact same WL settings unless you have the same pc with same graphics and same exact lighting RL you will see things differently.
ALSO and this is the most important part, no ones feet are the exact same shade of skin colour as their legs lol, we spend so much time with our feet inside of shoes, that it is natural for them to slightly differ, just like our torsos don’t match our arms. So lighten up on yourself and others, and just enjoy the pretties, because otherwise you will either send yourself balmy trying too hard , or you will miss out on the fun of having sexy shoes.
Popfuzz released this Nadia Dress recently and this tight and sexy number is in pink for RFL Clothing Fair , there are a huge range of other colours available but the sale of this one will go to RFL during the fair.It has a zippered front that if it was RL you would have to pin on the inside to ward off any lecherous zipper attacks lol, or not, depends on if you like suddenly baring all.
It is tight, tight, tight, and in true Popfuzz style it has taken into account any issues with the system templates, Popfuzz has added prim sleeves to the dress and even though it looks like they arent there at all, that is the point, they are purely to neaten up the template line of the sleeve, she goes above and boyond with all her creations that way.
There is a super kinky Naughty Nurse Nadia dress costume also for sale, not for RFL.. that is a special complete set including skins that you need to check out also, I will be showing that another day.
The Skin I am wearing is the Shoujo by Fleur in the Boutique Azalea tone, the make up is number 5 and there are 6 make ups in total for this release that is due out tomorrow. As per usual the bodies of the skins are soft and romantic, with all of the delicate features that you love from Fleur skins.
The faces of the Shoujo skins are just lovely, so pretty in features, and soft and alluring. I really love this new range of make ups too and they worked perfectly with the range of clothes I was shooting, so timing is everything.
The hair is another New release by SLink or recent release, the Lorelei hair is a long tail style with different bands traveling up the tail itself, keeping such a thick tail tame. The hair at SLink also comes with an incredible hud to change textures with giving you so much range with the one wig, the bands also have texture change capabilities.
I of course had so much fun changing Toenails and metal features with the Caged Platforms, also by SLink, DEMO DEMO DEMO.
One ofthe Must Haves with the New Shoujo Skins is the New Stella Dress by CKS Designs, Kit being a huge fan of all that Fleur does it was a no brainer on reshooting. The Stella dress is a mid thigh asymetrical Cocktail dress, that comes in this lovely pink cherry colour for RFL.
Other colours are also available at the fair, and this is only one of the RFL items on offer by CKS Designs. The foral look adornment on the dresses one strap can be worn with or without, both ways looks great, and the strappy back is definitely inviting trouble, what man can resist straps lol.
With the Stella dress I am wearing the Love Song Necklace from Sable Rose, the colours in this lovely necklace just enhance the whole romantic look. The Jacquie hair is another style from SLink and I really like the Jackie O style updo, this is not the first retro look style with a Jackie O name that has come out of SLink, so I am seeing a real vintage influence in her style.
The lips on Shoujo are just wonderful, had to share that observation, coz I like so totally paused then.
Another Incredible Relay for Life item is the Marblelous Gown from SySy Designs, very steam punky in texture, this gown has such a lovely essence about it. The colour scheme has this mix of leather against bare skin kind of feel to it, but you are completely covered… a bit naughty if you ask me.
I love how this looks with the innocent look of the Shoujo Spring 4 Make Up, the blush on the cheeks giving it a demure and bashful look, where with the illusion of the dress can be incredibly striking. The Marbelous gown also comes with the wonderful beaded choker, featuring a soft flower at the front, a great piece that you can wear with many other pieces in your inventory.
The Ashley hair by SLink has so much more going for it than I captured in the picture, a lovely braid amongst the loose bun style, you will need to check out the DEMO for yourself, a fabulous transition style which can move from casual all the way to formal, and everything in between.
Make sure you pay attention to the wonderful Eyes I am wearing in todays post, these are the Chemistry Grey Eyes from PanJen , very beautiful and we all know how much I loves my grey. While you are checking out the eyes, make sure you grab all her lashes as well, they are amazing.
Lastly not a RFL item, but featured at the fair this year is the amazing Glamour Gown by Adam n Eve. This gown has three skirt options, the full gown as shown and a micro mini and flexi mini. The gowns that come out of Adam n Eve are always so amazing, this is no exception.
The colour for a start is remarkable, the shading and detailing on the bodice of the dress is superb. My favourite part as I am sure it will be everyones is of course the sequin effect across the breasts, thats almost a blend of silver and gold, which I just love.
The Jewelry I am wearing is from Primagine, a set that is by name Everyday, but in this incidence could be called Special Occasion. Beautiful craftmanship on these pieces, the heart featured on earrings, necklace and bracelet is just lovely with its Diamond insert, the bracelet is my fav of the pieces because it has that charm bracelet quality I love, all the pieces tie in so well with the gown.
Make sure you do not miss out on the items at Clothing Fair, it ends tomorrow so you do not want to miss out, and even if you have been already, give it a whirl again, you may find something that you missed the first time.
Such an incredible cause, and so much hard work has gone into it, a big congrats to all that took part and a huge hug for all those that ventured over with the right frame of mind.
Don’t forget also the Shoujo Spring skins will be released Sunday 22nd so make sure you DEMO up a storm.
