Pink Skye of Mine

Skin/Shape Expo was actually the brainchild of Foxy Innis , a shape creator here in Second Life. She believes strongly as do many, that the symmetry between a well balanced look, is the ratio of skin and shape. Now I don’t do well with change, especially on others, as friends will attest..I get really upset if they do any sorts of changes, unless of course I supervised lol.

But with all of these beautiful and talented creators joining each other for such a worthwhile cause, I felt it was the least I could do to change my shape for some pictures. Now I had to start off slowly, and it made it easier on me that Leafy and Pink Fuel are both participants at this years Skin/Shape Expo.

If you have ever explored outside of either store, you will know they share a sim. So it was a no brainer to bring those two together in one post, and as the shapes compliment the skins so well, it worked great. The latest release in the Skye Skins by Pink Fuel are just lovely, they are innocent but with that kind of cheekyness built in.

I made my own shape, it took me a year to stop touching it in one way or another, and I have pretty much kept it consistent over the last three years, if I make a tweak it stays forever. But after wearing these shapes today, and being able to see them with such adorable skins, I can certainly see the appeal in wanting ‘that look”  I even went so far as wanting to live up to “that look ” with the little outfits I put on.

The first one being a set I bought recently off Xstreet for some ridiculously inexpensive amount, and had a ball running around in it for a day and night. Curvy and Cute is that naughty nurse. The shape is Bree and with the Skye Beestung looking skin from Pink Fuel she is perfect.

I had to add Katat0nik to this mix with the hair in all three pics, as I truly think PF and Leafy lovers just have to be Kat fans too.All three styles have many options, one being that you can hide and show the music symbols , and or headsets, which makes for fun looks either way.

So while at the Skin/Shape Expo make sure you visit all the booths, and grab DEMOS for everything, and even if you grab a group of friends and have a shape swapping party, it could find you something you never knew you wanted.

Have fun with Polaroids

Skin Creator

The Body Politik have been around since way before I arrived in Second Life. Creating skins for Men and Women in a variety of looks and skintones. Now they have gone a step further, giving you the customer the ability to personalise your look.

This process is not new, it has been offered in the past, but I would have to say with my own experience, that The Body Politik have put countless hours, if not weeks into making this as user friendly as possible. DEMOS are pretty much instant, as they have pre-made every conceivable variation in advance.

Be aware though, that if you choose facial ink you will not get that in the demo, as it would probably mean another thousand or so variations.

I gave this beauty a spin, and was able to choose for the skin you see above ,  a Cocoa skin tone – which is the darkest at this time – Flirt Eye MakeUp  and Storm Lipstick, with of course, who could resist a beauty mark…then I couldn’t resist a pouty lips option either. You can also choose freckles, and brows options.

Mind you while I was doing this, I actually had Mel on the Infinity Skins website at the same time choosing what he liked, as he has to look at me in the finished product, and it kind of makes the decision more of a shared experience. I really enjoyed that aspect of it a lot.

Then moving on to the body, I am not one for tattoos permanently but many are, and a basic range of tats to wear on the actual skin not just clothing layers is fabulous, even though those kinds of enhancements are shown to you in the demo as clothing layers – again to help with how many variations they had to provide to make the process easier for you.

I chose the athletic stomach, and I also really liked the fact that you could choose what nipples you wished to have, there is a great range, and as the shaved down there option was default that of course stayed as is :P, but you do have every other option in dark, blonde or brunette shades.

Being able to see the demo a few moments after I made all my choices was great, even without the beauty mark I was able to know that it was a skin that looked good on my shape, and that I was really going to enjoy wearing…because YUM on the pouty lips, and the body is divine.

When you get the skins, you will get a base skin which will look just like the demo, and then within 48 hours you will get the final custom, so when you pay for your purchase after deciding on the demo, you are able to leave with one skin ready to wear. So make sure you give it a whirl, if you are wanting something a bit more your own.

Now about those polaroids, I was searching online for goodness knows what, and somehow came across this delightful desktop creation, that to me is PURE GENIUS. This software will actually put a realistic looking Polaroid Camera on your desktop, which you then drag any picture to and it will pop out a Polaroid picture for you.

So for those of you without photo editing skills, who want a fun way to feature your pictures, this is right up your alley, I have dragged a bmp. straight from SL saved to hard drive and to the camera, and out it comes, it even makes the exact noise a real one does. The fun thing is you can even shake it with your mouse just like real ones, it will then save to your documents > pictures folder ready for you to upload to Flickr or wherever you want it. I then used the editing program in flickr and adding the text and kiss.

Red, White and Blue…it totally wasn’t planned, but it did turn out that way. It’s been a great week for hair for me so far, and it’s only mid week, but what week isn’t great for hair. Have you ever seen an item on a shelf and thought oooo ahhh, and bought it , and gotten it home to put on, and next thing you know you got more than you expected?

That’s exactly what happened with the first dress when shopping at Emery a while ago, I had no idea it had that incredible cut out detailing on the back, the front was fun enough for me to want it, back and forth semi diagonal lines in red, across a stark white background…with adorable knee high red with white trim accented socks.

The back is definitely va va voom worthy. Wanting a vintagey look , I teamed it up with the sunglasses from a already over 50L friday purchase, a great bargain for sure, but even without the fab price the style and fit of them is just great. Then adding the flavour of the day with the New Prestige boots by BAX , these things just keep on giving. The boots have so many different options from a drop down dialogue menu, you can see most of them in the pics as I go.

I really love the backcombed look of this stunning hair from Mirone. I kept the boots as simple as they come straight out of the box for this shot.

Next up, and again from Emery we have the skirt that makes me think of bacon, and because of that I love it even more. Not only is it a great simple tube skirt, but I love how it dips on one side, showing a tad more hip. I would love more of this style in different prints and colours. The top I grabbed off Xstreet, the XD store does crazy reductions on their items on Xstreet, less than half in many cases.

Another great hairstyle from Mirone – thanks to Ashia Tomsen for tping me to the Glance 1st anniversary where I was able to buy these great styles. This time I made use of the drop down on the Prestige Boots, changing the seams and edging, as well as the zipper and heels to red, popping up the over the knee extensions I was ready for action.

I was on a roll with these boots, so nosedived into my Tuli folder of clothing. This is where we went from red and white, to blue and white. I have always been a top stretcher, I had this insane reaction to things touching my neck as a kid, so all the collars of shirts would be stretched to near ripping point – and wow did I get into trouble for that. So styles such as this top make me happy, its elegant in an older Jackie O kind of era, but has that 80’s repeat thing going on, which of course  every 20 years is repeated so it’s definitely the theme now.

I really like the detailing done to the sleeves of this shirt, the rolled and fastened look is a nice addition, worn with some really nice shiny blue leggings that fit just right into the boots. It needed a little something though, so back to Xstreet because I was feeling lazy, and I knew it was there, I finally got the white version of the Widebelt from CoCo.

A few weeks ago Sofia and I went to Dango Jewells – if you haven’t checked out her fashion blog posts you are missing out – store Fabulous, I had been in a few times, and had really liked a particular set of bangles, this time I actually grabbed them. They come in two variations, in gold and white gold.

The other night Arabella, Whimsy and I went by the Clawtooth by Clawtooth sale, it was fun shopping together and each finding different things to love in each style, I already had a few Clawtooth creations, but was appreciative that I got to pick up some bargains. The goodbye horses hair I had loved since Hair Fair, but for some reason kept grabbing other styles whenever I went, I fixed that this time though.

Another style by Clawtooth and one of my favs as it actually has fun attachments with it, I am not wearing in this pic. The lovely full locks look great with the casual handkerchief dress by Tuli, she does such great work with prints and this dress is no exception. Another thing she does really well is denim, especially in jeans, these torn capri jeans are fab, and the perfect segway into my favourite of the Prestige boots features.

Denim cuffs anyone, yes I kid you not, the boots come with three different denim uppers, which of course will make them jean cuff lowers. This is a genius idea, and as denim when rolled up is very generic it works perfectly. So now due to this wonderful option, I get to look as though I am wearing pants cuffs, with boots uppers, and its still only one attachment point. The shirt was actually a VIP gift from Tuli and is a lovely loose sleeved look.

This hair is again Mirone, and was also a gift, for the Glance anniversary, so make sure you head over while that is still on. I am really happy that the new Sloth skins by Red Queen had such beautiful blue make ups, that it worked so well with these looks. I also enjoyed getting to show you a little bit more of the bodies of these skins, as I think the stomach is delish, so make sure you grab a demo of those soon to try for yourself.

Also be sure to check out the demos of the BAX Prestige boots, seriously the options on these are fantastic, and the colours are perfect for the upcoming cooler weather – it’s freezing here already.
