Slink Physique Original – Agave

Slink Physique Original Agave

Many times over the years I have talked about Blogging fate and how things just coincidentally happen that make me think that some kind of serious voodoo is going on. Such was the case when I blogged Vinyl yesterday and it made me think of the store that spun off from that called Agave. Agave is Vinyls husband in RL and he created his own SL business in the middle of last year. I got busy, but when I was seeking the store out yesterday, I found this amazing dress that somehow I missed the release of completely, but that to me is fate though, because had I seen it when I was busy it may be swimming around in the depth of my inventory a lost soul. So I grabbed the demos ( I always demo) and was super excited as it included both Slink sizes, Physique Original and Physique Hourglass, so that seemed to be another thing encouraging me to keep on my focus on Original. I fatpacked the dress because it is just gorgeous, the fit is superb, the texture change ribbons are beautiful,  which also fall tantalizingly down the plunging back of this dress, and just rest perfectly enough to tickle your tush as you dance the night away.

Then I remembered a pair of boots that I had rediscovered in my inventory a few weeks ago, somethings float to the surface, and put them on. Now I had already chosen my colour scheme, the blue was rich and just perfect to stand out in a most likely all black wearing crowd, with the baby pink ribbons and then putting on the boots with a hud that had so many colours to chose from they were almost identical, that is rare, especially with real colour colours. I was squeeling. Then adding in the option to select and colour bits and pieces of the boots, just perfect. But it did not stop there.

I was pouring through my system layer skins, thinking come on, something I have not played around with yet, and saw my Lara Hurley skins, mostly appliers but a few system layers, and I wore the first one in a set and COME ON the make up is actually part of the skin and if that is not Bloggers fate I do not know what is. Not only was the skin perfect but with Izzie’s help this not only worked seamlessly but her latest MUST HAVE items is Lip Corrector layers for bakes on mesh, and wow did they work on this skin. The very first one turned the skin from being overly darkened inner mouth that would not work on a mesh head, to perfectly working. The first one in the stack just genius, if you do not have these yet you need to get your hands on them they are ridiculously awesome. They may not work with everything, that is how SL is, but so far all win for me. I even included a little gif

I needed some statement pieces and Mandala is a definite go to for that, and sure enough again, pink and blue in the right tones to just work perfectly, and yes I am that kind of colour coordinated person. I love this whole look, it is a perfect kind of in the now Mod look and I want more.

Agave make me more gorgeous dresses please, I can wait *taps foot*.

Slink Physique Original – Vinyl

Slink Physique Original Vinyl

So I logged in today as I was feeling kind of pastel like, which of course ended up more Sunny than Pastel, but as I tend to love yellow I was all good with that. I by habit put on an item that was sheer, the sheer part was not the habit, but the size option was, so I had put on Slink Physique Hourglass size, and then realised because I was sheer it did not fit, it took my mind a moment to remember I was still in my Slink Physique Original bundle body from a previous post, and I was all good with that…I decided to run with it.

Vinyl has included Slink Physique Original since the start, the skirt I am wearing is an earlier item so much so that it includes Standard Sizing as well, so I would have been covered either way. I love this skirt, it has options for the straps, the layers, the metals, the colours are lovely and it just has a perfect boho fun to it that I really like. The cami top is relatively new and you get the option to change the strings separately from the top itself, so pretty together and like minded colouring made it all just deliciously joyful. The skirt style had me reaching for some Gladiators, the skirt just had that kind of quality to it, and these Gladiator boots by Ison were just perfect, an older style but perfection none the less and made for the Slink Mid feet height, which just makes them perfect for day wear.

Things that compliment each other just had me reaching for these earrings that I knew I had, to team up with one of my wonderful LODE hair accessories, I can never have too many of these, they always make me so happy, and the insects on the earrings just made it perfectly symbiotic for me.

I have been using the Izzie’s Bom nosefix layers for weeks now, and realised that in playing with them, I had not actually played with them with an actual Izzie’s skin, for shame. So I did just that and am wearing Delusional which is just hilarious to me today. I actually pulled out a lot of Izzie’s to put this look together, the nail fixers for the skins are also on MP and are free to go with her actual skin tones, then because there were a few more pores in the skin vs the nose fix I added her pores layer tattoo option so that and some make up, her hairbase and I was all set. The skin I am wearing did not have a no brows option, so I am wearing some brows not by Izzie’s that fit so smoothly over that it worked out great.

I had created another GIFT set of nails when the new Extra Long Nails by Slink were released for Slink Dynamic Hands. I was inspired by the mention of Unicorns and with the added length the kind of twirly look works. They also have materials, and the newer HUD and I love them, which is handy because that way I can wear them, and I think it is important to love what you create, going back through my sets to update has made me ooo and ahh because I got lazy and had over two hundred to choose from. If you have any of the previous sets and you love a particular one, let me know and I can try and put it to the top of my list for updating :).

Slink Physique Original – Ingenue and The Food Court

Slink Physique Original Ingenue and The Food Court//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

 

Before we had mesh bodies we had Standard Sizing and alpha layers, we wore SL default bodies and in some cases add on parts to make them better. We had Slink Feet and Hands, there were lips, and bottoms and add on chests and we were a mish mash of pieces. Standard Sizing fit everyone willing to change their shape sliders to fit into the size parameters, and life was good. I was lucky enough to have a shape already that fit xs lower and s upper straight away no tweaking needed.

Then Slink Physique Original came along and it was so close that if you had a Standard Sizing shape, then Standard Sizing clothing fit, this was before we had fitted mesh at all. So for those of us that jumped on the Slink Original ride, nothing for us changed, everything fit, blogging was still so easy, but we were smoother and prettier. The Slink Physique Original body was perfect for me, it fit every criteria I needed in a body because when I worked and dealt with the public, I tend to dress the part, more classic lines, professional clothing, and it worked very well.

The body itself is not overly sexualised, but it can also be incredibly sexy, it is also a great athletic shaped body with leaner lines and for those that may be wanting a less girly look it is a great option. I have seen people embrace the petites add ons with the body also, slimming down their shape even further with the smaller breasts options, and it is remarkable how different you get to look. I like that we have more body type options, that for those that do not want to put it all out there with the curvier looks they have the options to be more svelte or just more themselves. I like that there are bodies that can go the other way, curvier, larger, and even those that break the parameters of realism entirely, it gives us what Second Life is meant to be about. The options is what makes SL great, and when creators embrace as many of those options as they can realistically handle (only the person doing the work knows how much work they can take on) it just adds to the overall experience.

Ingenue has recently started creating clothing again, and has incorporated Slink Physique Original into her creations as well as alpha layers for bakes on mesh which is fantastic and forward planning. Many would know her for footwear only, but in the early days she started out with Hair and Clothing and some amazing lingerie styles. Ingenue pretty much went what people would refer to as Viral the day she released her vintage hairstyles, and she was off and running ever since, a perfect staple creator for anyone with the love of classic pieces and that casual but still elegant vibe she has going on. I ran over to the store today and grabbed the fatpack of these pants, together with this top and the shoes I feel like I am ready to pick up a broom handle and start stretching and twisting and having myself a Marvelously Maisel kind of day.  It will definitely help with all of these empty pixel calories that I picked up at The Food Court event last week, that event is a must visit and is going to be twice a year, so get a wriggle on if you have not been.

There are whole collections of delicious treats and some amazing items to collect with gacha’s however I do wish we could just buy stuff, playing something in the hope of getting that thing is rough, luckily for me I just play machines that I like it all and have no interest in having all the pieces, I am the customer that benefits the most from Gacha in that way, and Whimsy and I nearly always get rares, especially when trying to just get commons. My usual rule of Gacha play is, I play as much as I would spend on one of the items, and if I get something more than twice I stop. The layout of the event was really nice, and the seating areas made it very cool to just sit down relax and cam around. However as always I just kept the booth to my left and started walking until I got back to the start, very easy event, and it cost me a small fortune because nearly everything looked delicious or was amazingly reasonable in price to just grab and own.

I am wearing some nailpolish appliers I updated to just make it more up to date skills wise overall, plus I have fancier new HUDs now, and I hand drew this set to really embrace my Aussieness :) it is free on marketplace, and I hope you enjoy it. I am also having a lovely time with this hairstyle by Exile, that brings all my high ponytail love to fruition, with the hairbase by Izzie’s this style is just wonderful and it has bangs options as well as left right side, so make sure you get your Kat on from Collabor88.

Shop n Hop with Sasy pt 5

Shop n Hop with Sasy pt 5

No video today it is roasting hot down here and I have so many fans going full throttle it would be a very noisy piece indeed. I mentioned in my last post that some of the build items at Shop n Hop did not have demos available, prim limits, size of location etc, so be sure to visit the booth, check out what you like TP to their store, have a look and go back and purchase. I was so hooked on the event though I logged in an alt to do the demos at the build and then just stayed still to buy, that is some serious shopping logic right there.

I am in a skybox at the moment by Minimal,  I tend to buy skyboxes and smaller builds as backdrop options in the future, not to live in, but to use the great detailing that they may have as a prop for a photo, or a corner in this sense for a chair I also picked up at the event by Peaches. The chair has great poses for female and male, and the chair comes with a sofa and texture change HUD, and with the reduction the price is crazy worth it. There is so much going on in this loft that I will easily be able to get a half a dozen pictures easily out of it, if not more, so definitely take that into consideration if you like taking pictures.

Speaking of options, this mug by Schadenfreude is one of an adorable set (can be purchased individually) that come with not only multiple colours but also options of beverage, it is just a great set to have and with a bit of resizing to fit my hand (took seconds) I was all sorted and cozy in my chair. The more I am typing the more I am wanting to video and talk talk talk, so I am going to end it with that because I may just let this sit now, and come back to it when it is cooler, you never can tell.

The clothing are pieces from Shop n Hop, Tres Blah items most of them I had, but this sweater I missed somehow and love it with the bit of bra peeking out. The pants are part of an outfit set that Addams has available and they are just perfect jeans for chilling and have belt options and so much going on with the outfit itself. With the reduced prices on all things, they are must haves.

I made some alphas for the pants and the top, more of a sitting bending leg issue on the pants and a tiny bit of inner thighs, the top just armpits as is the case most of the time, a bit of arms etc. Because I have made them and they are actually placed in the folder of the items in my inventory, if you need them shoot me an IM if you are bakes on meshing like me.

Wearing another older Pink Fuel skin, this one is Harley and it is a gorgeous skin, has many additional options and I seriously just had this OH NO I CHANGED SKINS moment on crediting, and realised HA I got info from worn tab last night before I logged and because I am all system layers and mesh not HUDS and the like now, I have the information at hand, though I did know what I was wearing, but I get so excited every time I realise how much easier life is now with Bakes on Mesh.

I wanted to give a heads up to those on the look out for some Bom goodies, with Pink Fuel adding toe and finger fixes to their store for any system skins that you may have previously. They come in all tones, and I am wearing with the Mori System skin and with the addition of the Izzie’s Bom Nose fix, I am adorable. Showing in the video some little tips you may not know with your LeLutka head HUD and just rocking out some more of the great purchases I made at Shop n Hop that is open until January 6th 2020.

I grabbed a fair few of the Minimal backdrops/builds the feature picture is using the Soho build, the demos are not on location so if you are not familiar with their builds check out the store first, and then go prepared at the event.

I hope everyone has a Happy Holidays, and gets to spend the time with as many important to them people as they can.

I am using my Izzie’s Bom Nose fix again, this time with a Gatch skin from Tres Blah, so old, and cannot be found which is making me so sad, I need more, the Tres Blah skins look amazing with a bit of nose fixing and I want more and no brows options, I even changed hair colour as only brown brows where available in the skins I had, the commitment was real.

This post was more of a showing you how to get the most out of your Bakes on Mesh system skins if you have tried them and they failed to look as good as you hoped around the nose area. Izzie’s has released nose fixes that take care of that, and with some time you can revive those older skins and feel anew. I am so happy this is an option, it gave me a chance to get back into an older skin, and I hope you all get the same chance, this may also work on skins that are created for a different head than you wear, always worth a look.

I took the main picture in this wonderful train station scene that is also at Shop n Hop by FoxCity and is reduced during the event, as are all things there. It even includes a snow prim animated and with that and the great gift hair by Magika, some make up by Izzie’s I was that perfect blend of Australian that does not know how to dress for really cold weather, but still loving it all. When I was in the US in the past when the weather was cold, I could never dress warm enough, for one thing even if I managed to take wintery clothing we just don’t have the real stuff down here, then on top of that with all that central heating and crazy double doors etc stuff you have up there, how can you know before you are outside how warm you need to be. I would be drowning in clothing, gasping for air, and then go outside and my breath would fall to the ground and shatter. I gave up, it was just easier to be cold, and snow is the best thing ever. I did add a bit of red to my hands and my upper lip for the picture, I also blurred out the snow on the hair as it was a bit too crisp compared to the snow falling, I hope you like.

Make sure you get on over to Shop n Hop if you have not been yet, you need to, and if you have, go again, I have been three times so far.
