    Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2009

    Up and down, in and out, seriously today has been a bloops and blunders kind of day. Freezing, and crashing, up again changing settings back to mine, roll over and do si do and sheeesh it has been whacko.

    Aden Breyer has also released his latest Generation 5 Skins at the fair,four lovely tones and striking faces make up these skins. I am a fan of Adens work, whether it be hair or skins, as you can tell definitely a hair fan in general.

    I really like the strength of this skin, the body is soft and subtle, which for those that don’t do nakey usually at all will find not an issue, but that’s why it is so awesome we have demos, so that you can see exactly what it is you are getting.

    My favourite parts would have to be the stomach and bottom, shading is wonderful, and the lips and make up isn’t too over the top, but definitely suits all situations. It was funny because as I was taking the pics for this post a girl in fashion emergency was choosing which one she liked best and sent us a pic, and she looked so amazingly different than I did in the skin, that I do love how shapes can make such a difference.

    *Waves to Kamilah Nemeth * I think she looked incredible in the skin, I really hope she chose which she liked best.

    The other week when I was actually at Adens store I revisited the Kat hair, I remember when it first came out I was a bit hesitant as I would have nothing to wear with it, then the other week I thought I don’t need anything in particular I just want a hair fix lol. Then YAY Aoharu released their new Short Riders leather jackets and it was all sorts of squeeling.

    The detailing on these jackets is just super, the intricate prims, the texture , all of it is win. They come with both gold and silver options, and the sizing of it was a piece of cake , in other words I didn’t have to do any lol.

    As soon as I saw the notice of the New Sassy Kitty Designs Jodhpurs in leather I was off and running, not only in the price just too low in my opinion, but the texturing is fantastic, they come in three colours and two styles, so make sure you grab both.

    Buzzing all over SL with Whimsy and Ashia. Whimsy took me to a store, then I took her to a store, then we both took Ashia to a store and yeah, it’s like that lol. I really liked the look I ended up with , picking up pieces to add to bits I bought yesterday and the day before.

    Who wouldn’t love pants called Pudding, regardless of the name being so awesome, the pants are fabulous, and come in a great colour range…and the price is nutso. Paradisis has recently relocated and their new build is woah..and the gardens of the main building are just delightful. So much so that with all that black and yellow, I felt right at home today.

    The top I am wearing is actually part of the Summer Breeze dress from OhMai, I really loved the bright sunshiney colour of the dress, and am so happy that it’s styled so well to get wear out of it as a top as well.

    Dahlinks does some fabulous Jewelry, so the other day when I saw that they had newness I made a mental note and today dragged Whimsy over to get some of the wonderful Chloe back knotted beads, I got these ones and the other set also, one set was scripted to resize these ones however are no mod and not scripted, so if you have an issue with that be aware.

    With the New and super fabulous Esprit XTD by Maitreya Gold, I was able to combine the Noir bases with the Lemon accents, and painted my toenails the same lemon colour , woohoo I love these shoes.

    The skin I am wearing is from Vive 9, the other day I was talking to Athena Loring of Miseria about how incredible she looks in her vendor ads, and she mentioned that her skin was from Vive 9, so Ashia got me the info and I went by there last night and got the fat pack of the Miranda skin, they are really adorable faced skins, the body is different than I am used to, but for the price it was a crazy if I didn’t moment.

    All of the skins at Vive 9 are very character based, and so many to look at, so grab all the demos go home and really take the time to check out each one, there are also two boxes of gift skins on the small table in the centre of the room.

    You know I have to be honest, I didn’t know who Frank Lloyd Wright was before Second Life. It’s not that we don’t have influences of his in Australia, I mean we must. But not until Second Life did I ever really consider where those influences came from, or for that matter in how high regard a man such as he was; was held.

    I am probably very underdressed for a field trip of this nature, but that is the other joy and learning experience that Second Life allows us, don’t judge a book by it’s cover, actually; just don’t judge.

    Imagine what he could have done in Second Life had he lived to see it, but he is actually not only immortalised here by the place I visited today, but because of the NEW FLW Museum I actually learned that one of our esteemed Designers names ‘Fallingwater’ of Shinythings, is the name of one of his more famous builds. I wonder if she is a fan too and that’s why the name ?, the irony is that her last name is Cellardoor and from what I read, he actually got rid of most basements and attics that were in usual American architecture, now I need to know if Fallingwater actually had a cellar …argh – someone has to let me know.

    The FLW Museum in Second Life is a beautifuly dedicated build to his memory, the large pictures of him are full of facts about the man, and his life. There is a tour of his work, and just a really nice vibe to the place. I do not know how the Museum came about, but if it is what I think , then someone who admires the man greatly has dedicated their time and energy to show and share that admiration with us..we are truly lucky that we can do that here.

    The outfit that I am wearing is a mix, the skirt – which Ashia claims is NOT a skirt – is by Paradisis, isn’t it arrest worthy..the only pout worthy thing about it is that the panties do not come seperately and they look awesome, and I want them. But aside from that it comes on a billion layer combinations.

    The incredible thing about Paradisis is that everything is sold either transfer or copy, depending on which vendor you buy from, so be aware that you do have that option, and don’t buy the incorrect one. The Skirt comes with the garters and fabulous stockings in three different colours. Incredible prices and everything , and I do mean EVERYTHING is handdrawn by the creators at Paradisis.

    The hoodie is a release shortly after the skirts, and they are equally fab, coming on numerous layers with a great range of colours. The skirt also comes in other colours, I bought them all, one is the U.S version with red and white panties, with a blue denim skirt, very cute.

    The Vogue Tank is by Cynful and comes also on a billion layers, in with or without garter straps option, I obviously didn’t wear that one with this look as I would have had way too many straps going on, but it will get a revisit soon. The tops also have a lovely lace trim as well as at the cleavage, but you can’t see it because of the layer combo I am wearing.

    Lovely Tasha, is a skin that many know and have from LAQ, recently redone in the Glow series, it deserves a revisit…or a first. Due to it being a redo , the fat pack of this skin and a few others in the Glow range are a steal, and all come with the hair base option, that looks awesome with the latest release of the hair that goes with hair base skins…so much so that I was able to convince Arabella to try on the skins when shopping for the hair, and it was a win lol.

    The nose on Tasha is adorable, and the make ups are just lovely, the lips will win your affections, as they are full and pouty and just incredibly done, they are a rich and full covering lipstick which is great for those that want to look like they are making an effort for a night out, but also giving you a day option in lighter colours.

    Your Chicken


    Cyborg and Futuristic skins have always been an incredible use of the skin template. Taking the RP to new levels with a realistic look is definitely a journey, and when you find a store that does as incredible work as this one in that genre, they totally deserve all sorts of praise.

    Over the last two years I have noticed their range expanding bit by bit, slowly but surely growing into the magnificent collection it is now…but today it just exploded and springing forth was a skin line that just blew me away with its textures. The effect is nothing short of dazzling.

    First off the name had me chuckling, the Cygirloid skins come in white, metal and dark…I am featuring the Metal and White in only one of the options which is the Mana. You not only get the base, which you can see in the first picture on the right. That is the skin base on its own, head and body all metal or white.

    The base by itself it’s just brilliant, hand drawn as all the Paradisis items are, the effect on the metal even in the white is glossy and shined up to perfection, because you want to take care of your metalic body right. Then you have options on the face detailing, they are all marvelous options. Then you have underpants layers top and bottom that give the iridescant effect, and my goodness its effective…I am so impressed by the shine and glimmer the Mana has with the blue crystal like detailing.

    I just had to add my Cyborg Energe Pack to the mix from Tigerclaw, now this pack that is on my lower back is not the way it comes, it has been tinted so that the life force energy liquid is blue, the way it comes its red and that kind of freaked me out too much. I just thought it really went with this skin so well. Also the Hair shown in the first pic was fun to edit the hair sticks from to make them also blue and glowy.

    The third picture is a little less Cyborg but definitely Insilico worthy, make sure you visit Insilico sims by the way , they are very well layed out, and Whimsy Winx won’t forgive me if I don’t tell you all she said to go visit.

    The Midnight Full set from Paradisis is again amazingly detailed, the rubber is so well done I can barely breath. The rubber has a matt finish but a definite thick and tight look, the extra detailing with mesh to allude to breathing space for the body are very well done..again all hand drawn and a must have.

    Bloggers fate again, as soon as I left Paradisis I went over to Skanks R Us , as Poe Tatum the designer was having a huge SALE in celebration of her New Main Store. Everything is between 50 and 150L most of it being 50L, as soon as I saw this mask it was mine.  Incredibly crafted the Rebreather Mask is scary and fab all at once, scary because it is scripted to mist and have sounds, that sound like darth vader.

    I’m a woos, no it’s true, I have blubbered so many times this week it’s just whatever. But one thing that will absolutely tip me over emotionally, is the idea of a friend being hurt.  I even mean virtually, don’t ever ‘headshot’ gesture in front of me, coz I will go off my nut at you.

    That’s why I am sure to get spanked for this post, especially from Newdoll who will be all indignant that I am wearing a cyber heart, as the idea of her wearing a steampunk one a few weeks ago, spun me out.

    But that is the way it is, when you are constantly surrounded by people that reach out a little from the norm, we all do it in our group, and it rubs off. It’s funny because we all have such varying tastes, but end up loving such similar if not the exact same things, as you have seen recently in some of our cross over posts.


    Mixing it all up, I went to [rQ] earlier today, and was playing with the hair, tails, ears and animations.

    I think it makes so much sense for Hair Designers to make tails and ears, I mean you have the customers already wearing your hair, so why not give them the option of their other parts being in the same rich textures, and these Kitten tails and ears are just win win win.

    One thing that I love doing is shooting animations. If you have read my posts in the past you will know this isn’t the first time I have done this, and also won’t be the last.

    Red Queen has some incredible Anime AO’s , which I will be featuring over the next few posts, the pics today are taken from just one of them, and I could have taken dozens more pictures with them.

    Magicka Moonites is the creator of the AO’s from Red Queen, and between her and Ruth Quan the creativity and energy is wonderful.

    Tips to taking pictures of animations:

    1. Unpack the AO just as though it is a box.

    2. Load them into a posestand – I use the VR Professional Posestand and HUD.

    3. Change animations just as though you would poses, but be patient and let them run through the whole animation before you start taking pictures.

    4. If the animation has a lot of fast movement, go to Advanced > Character > Slow Motion Animations and click on it. This will slow them down so that you can shoot your pictures a little easier, do not forget to uncheck it when you are done.

    Shooting animations is not only a lot of fun, but it actually extends your range of picture taking, giving more flexibility to the images, as well as actually giving you a lot more picture options in the one animation, which can actually save you money in the long run.

    The other great part is that when you have animations to shoot with, things like incredibly flowing hair or tails such as the ones I have on today get captured in movement, and it really is fun to shoot that way.


    Wanting to show off as much of the Red Queen skins as possible, not only do you get light and dark brows, but also a ‘Damage” look, which I thought was fun to wear after my obvious and so graceful fall.

    These skins as did the first release, have such lovely toned bodies, and incredible make ups, making the eyes a definite feature to the skins make up.

    I swung by Paradisis on my way home, always one for baring some skin, this store does not disapoint. I actually got much more than I shot, but you can see a bit of a mix in the items shown.

    If you have been looking for more in the way of shorts with suspenders and sexy thigh high stockings, then the Hands Off set is a MUST HAVE. I am also definitely in love with the set shown in the top pictures which not only have creamy stockings but also thick rubberised and holey leggings over the tops.

    The Wrapped Boots I am wearing in the top pics are boots that Ashia Tomsen of Inventory Episode keeps asking me if I have gotten them yet, I HAVE HAVE HAVE NOW. I told myself I had to wait a few weeks for those and some other items I have to go grab soon.

    Boots like this are always so fun, they definitely add a spring to your step, and whether a little ball of energy like Ashia or tall like myself, they are such fun. Also fun for boots, and sexy by name and nature are the Kinky boots by Utopia, I have actually taken the shiny off these boots in edit, yes miracle of miracles they are mod, funnily enough many kinky things are :P.
