FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HEADLINE: Content Creators Bare All to Raise Awareness for Intellectual Property Rights
SUBHEAD: Campaign features prominent Second Life creatives naked in first round of ads

An intellectual property rights awareness campaign launches Friday featuring some of Second Life’s most well-known content creators posing in the buff. The idea behind the ads is simple; educate as many of Second Life’s residents as possible about the issues, effects and consequences surrounding theft in Second Life (SL).
The first round of ads in the campaign have been in production for the last two weeks and will feature Sachi Vixen and Damen Gorilla of Adam n Eve, Minu Palen of Minnu Model Skins – MM skins, Tigerlily Koi and Haedon Quine of Calla, Nyte Caligari of Nyte’N’Day, Caliah Lyon of Muse Fine Jewelry and Stroker Serpentine of Strokerz Toyz.
The idea for the campaign sprang from talks and group IMs regarding the growing problem of theft in SL, and the frustration many creators feel playing a largely defensive strategy which is basically sitting back and waiting for their creations to be stolen and then filing DMCA requests with Linden Labs (LL).
“I just got tired of hearing from friends who’d had something stolen about how frustrating the process was for them,” said the campaign’s creator, Chez Nabob. “I started thinking about trying to develop a more offensive strategy, one that would allow content creators to take charge instead of constantly being victimized. So I considered what some real-life groups had done to raise awareness for their cause and landed on the concept PETA uses in their anti-fur campaigns. I thought parodying those ads would be an effective way to shed more light on the issue among the broader population of SL.”
The campaign’s participants hope to enlist the help of their fellow content creators in blanketing SL with the ads by having the ad textures placed inside sale vendors along with whatever items each individual creator sells. When a customer comes into a participating shop and purchases an item with an ad texture inside, the ad will be delivered along with the item the customer bought. Additional ads will be made available in world for display in stores and at events while other ads will be placed in SL-related publications and blogs.
“Basically the idea is to educate consumers about what’s going on out there. Theft is becoming rampant with thieves getting more and more organized all the time. Many residents unwittingly purchase items that are actually the stolen intellectual property of another content creator. We want the greater public within SL to see this campaign and understand the issue as a result,” said Nabob. “We want residents to understand that, for many content creators, SL is their livelihood and theft here is no different from theft in the real world. Intellectual property theft is illegal and actionable in courts around the world regardless of whether it happens in real life or inside a ‘game.'”
If the campaign can raise enough awareness among SL’s residents, the hope is that people will join the content creators in lobbying SL’s creator, LL, for more safeguards to help protect the intellectual property of content creators.
“What we want people to understand is that theft doesn’t just cost content creators revenue, it has a cost to everyone in SL,” Nabob said. “It costs residents when their favorite creators can’t devote time to making new items because they’re too busy chasing down thieves or they quit producing altogether because of theft. It costs thieves when they’re caught and prosecuted in a real-life court. And ultimately, if we cannot start to get some safeguards in place, theft will drive content creators out of SL, and LL will then begin to feel the costs of an in-world economy that’s been ravaged by thieves.”
The hope is that enough awareness and education can take place as a result of the ads that a dialogue can be opened with LL and third-party ventures that will lead to a stronger, more robust system for dealing with the problem of theft.
“Due to technological shortcomings there will always be theft in SL, but our desire is to have the scripters, texture artists, builders, shoe makers, skin makers, hair makers, fashion designers, etc. talk with LL and other third-party developers and see if we can deliver some methods to help make things better for content creators and residents, and tougher for thieves,” said Nabob. “That’s the ultimate goal.”
The campaign ads are being distributed to content creators in-world through creator-focused groups. Additionally, creators can get the ads here:

Lavish Michelle with Goodies

I said that I was able to show you some more of the Michelle skin by Damiani, bodywise. As you can see with this post featuring again the incredible talent of Katy Angel of Lavish Style.

In the first picture I am wearing Michelle in Fair Smoky Eyes Fair Lady, its a beautiful make up, with soft lips but dramatic eyes. As I was showing alot more skin I opted for a bit of a darker tone – But remember you can modify them – as you can see the detailing and shading on these skins are as I mentioned just divine.

The lingerie is the beautiful Chalice set in black by Lavish Style and it was instant love. It has 5 beautiful pieces in the set and you can really see how much work and dedication Katy has put into making it as sensual and sexy as she can.

You get the smaller panties that are laced edged and very detailed, to enhance those fabulous buns that Michelle has, then there is a booty shorts option where there is a touch more coverage and in this gorgeous fabric its more of a vintage pinup style. The bra cups well, and the shape and pattern again are outstanding, with such delicate straps that meet at the shoulders.

I positively adore the cami style top though on this set, as its such stunning work that, well you know what I am going to say , ADD A GOWN SKIRT lol. The sheer little skirt is just adorable too, for those nights you want to pamper your partner, Chalice is definitely the set to do it in…and if you want to pamper your girls, then partners get over to Lavish Style and start shopping as the items are Transfer – Always check though prior because stores do change policies, be safe :o) .

You can see the Chalice also comes in this stunning Red colour too. This time I opted for Michelle Skin in Fair Emerald Ruby, the lips matched perfectly to the tones in the Chalice set, and the eye make up is just divine – You can see it closer in earliers face posts.

Katy of Lavish Style has recently also released more Lingerie Sets so you have more goodies to see when you arrive.

The hair I am wearing in Chalice Black is Karen, and in Red Chalice is Katie, both are ETD styles and again I wanted styles that were drawn back enough from the face to accentuate Michelle by Damiani.

Another set I have been dieing to show you from Lavish Style is Amelia, and yes even though I was only going to shoot Lingerie I couldnt help myself.

Also with skin tone on hand called Sophisticated, it seemed a perfect combo.
First off the Gloves do not come with the set, they are the fabulous work of Roslin Petion of Fleur, and I have shown the long gloves in the pack previously I wanted to show the medium you also get as with this Vintage style dress its a superb combo.

Amelia struck me as soon as I saw it, for not only the dynamic style and colours, but I was intrigued by the belt. Was it prims, sculptie or texture? the glossy shine and detaling to it has it so realistic looking, it seems to pop right off the advertisement. It is in fact texture, and again shows Katy’s wonderful talent.

The strapless style and beautiful full skirt are such a treat in such deep rich colours. The back actualy is low back with straps meeting at the base – Sorry I didnt get a better picture of that, runs off to the Lavish Style site and links to a pic HERE . Now as I was all in pin-up mode after the beautiful Chalice sets, I continued that with the lovely Christina hair by ETD, with the lovely waves and the kiss curl at the forhead on the left side, its a charmer.

The Michelle skin this time as I said in the Sophisticated tone and Emerald Ruby make- up just enhances the overall combo, then for my feet I wanted to keep that red/black combination and I went with the darling Classy Sling Back heels by Digital Dragon Designs in Red/Black and they are just gorgeous! the sheen on them is perfect for the sheen on the dress and gloves.

I hope you enjoyed the follow up of Michelle by Damiani and Lavish Style pieces, make sure you run over and DEMO DEMO DEMO, and dont forget presents of lingerie are always fun for both giver and reciever lol.

Michelle skin from Damiani

The other day the lovely Ben Vanguard jumped into my box and was talking to me about a Newish Skin Maker called KaoZ Koba.

Kaoz and his partner Pompeja Rossini own the store Damiani, and there they have created some incredible mens and womens skins, shapes and clothing.

Kaoz was hard pressed to find a Male skin for himself that he would be happy with, so he went ahead and created his own.
Having a background in Arts and his partner being a beautician, the combination quickly led to demands by customers for the female equivelant.

Presenting Michelle to you all today, this beautiful skin comes in 3 tones and 12 make-up options.

Fair, Sophisticated -Such a charming way to describe the paler skin tone – and Tan.

The make-up is beautifuly done and all skins are actualy mod, so not only can you add gloss but can also alter the tones of the skins, which is perfect for those days when you want a little more or less tan.

The other bonus to the skins is that with every make up you choose, there is an additional skin in the pack of a lipstick specialy created to go with the eyeshadow choice, for a more fantasy/theatrical look I would think.

As usual no nakey on my posts, but I assure you the body of these skins is superb also. I did take some great picks with some lingerie to post later, so you get to see a bit more.

But I want you to go and grab those DEMOS and see first hand how wonderful they are. Not only is the shading lovely, but the mouth shape is divine, and hello look at that make up.

There is beautiful creamyness to the shadows that have a sheen that can move easily from casual with the softer lips to stunning for the evening.

Another of my favourite things other than that yummy yummy nose is the names of each make-up, I even numbered them so I would get it right this time lol.

1. Blue Eyes Fair Lady
2. Blue Eyes Red Kiss
3. Cornflower Cotton Candy
4. Cornflower Genesis
5. Emerald Oasis
6. Emerald Ruby
7. Leila Cotton Candy
8. Leila Genesis
9. Smokey Eyes Fair Lady
10. Smokey Eyes Red Kiss
11. Wild Thing Cherry
12. Wild Thing Passion

All the make-up pictures are done wearing the Michelle Sophisticated Tone, I really like this tone as it seems to be that in between tone we all crave some days, especialy us tan girls. But remember they are Mod so you can up and down those tones to your hearts delight, just copy and past the skins and play play play so you dont lose the original settings- I hate when I do silly things like that.

I cant wait to see more incredible skins, both male and female come out of Kaoz and Pompeja, as well as some incredible fashion and I also hear poses are in the works….sounds to me like they may just become one of the big italian fashion houses, dont forget to go and grab those DEMOS from Damiani.

The hair I am wearing is Alyssa by ETD , I love this sculpted headband style as its perfect for showing off your lovely skin and make-up. I am also wearing Vintage Lashes in the Pictures by Nuclear Boutique.

Shoes Glorious Shooooooes, and Pants and Shrugs and OMG HAIR !

Ok so as I said earlier I took time out and came back to the grid flip flopping around like a stunned mullet – ok not really but it sure felt peculiar. First off I hit What’s NEW at got an eye full of the yummy goodies from ETD.

By goodies I mean not only was there hair and clothing newness but SHOOOOOEEEEESSSSS, I had been skipping around all day in my ballet wedge heels by ETD, and then come on to find not only has Elika created some NEW Ballet heels but GAZOOKS these incredible Heel Strap Platforms, that are sculptalishus.
When I saw them it was instant love, when I tried on the DEMO more love; and when I saw all the colours well that was something me, and my shoes will keep a secret from now until the end of time.

The shoe shape is very dignified and has a real vintage look to the shape and structure, with the addition of the charming strap to the back of the heel…what is its purpose back there ? absolutely nothing! isn’t that awesome lol.

I just adore the colours, they are rich and vibrant with a real depth that will go with all seasons. I was so excited once I got them home that I had to wear two at a time to see them as quick as possible – Ok I cannot tell a lie, I do that all the time, if I have more than one colour.

I was talking to Elika and she was saying how the pants from Celestial Studios looked great with her New shoes, and well as I had already been over that way earlier to LaLa FooFoo I thought that was a perfect addition and off I went. I was a bit unsure where to go and Elika said there should be a pants wall or a wall of pants, lol something like that she said.

Wall of Pants there was, Starley has been busy and not only do these pants come in both layers, but they come on both layers for tight and once for loose fit and then you have 3 prim options, bootleg, flared and skinny leg. So before I knew what was happening it was click click clickety click and I was off again.

So there I was all ready on my stands- yes I have lots of stands in my house lol- and I was about to start changing into my Elika-LaLa Canimalial Studio ensemble when I realised OH LORD I need hair, so I poked Truth Hawks of TRUTH Designs, and well by the time I said I dont need you now Im tping to your store I ended up with a big present from the Handsome Aussie Man.

I so can’t work out what to call this now so its just ‘Look from all those fab people’ lol hows that work for ya?.

So here goes it, first off when I went to La La FooFoo-dont you just love that name- I was so excited at the goodies inside and click click click I did get more than you will see now, but you will get to see it eventualy I promise.

The shrugs in an abundance of gorgy colours is what I am showing from there today, and Larue now has her own store on the Celestial Studios Sim so you dont have to travel far, and its such a cute little store too.

The first Shrug is the Beige and I just love this colour- had me cursing that I didnt get the stone or tan pants at Starleys lol, but I do adore beige and red so it worked out. They come on the shirt and jacket layer, and with or without buttons on the side of the collar, which I think is a great option.
I matched the Linen Heel Strap Platforms to the mix and then needed to play with the middle……as I said I love beige and red, so I shimmied into my new Red Cords with the skinny legs from Celestial Studios , and I was loving my look. But my middle middle was still um NAKEY, and the red of the Cords was deep.
Inspiration hit in the form of G.L.A.M and the Bustier Pencil Dress– Ok so this week you have seen the aviator glasses that came free and now the top, I swear eventualy you will see the dress. I reached in and plucked out the crimson top and thankfully it was mod so made it a touch darker and VOILA! – Yummy Yummy Yummy I got love in my tummy.

Now of course because I am only thinking of you, and how SL can be hell to tp some days, I opted for the Canimal Essence Mystery of Simplicity skin for all the pics – hee hee- so that you can mosey around all four stores. But after that you are going to have to pull up your new pants, dig your toes into your new shoes, and scrunch up the sleeves of your shrugs and take on the TP challenge, because there is Hair to be had at TRUTH!.

This style in the first pic is called Gypsy and I adore it for not only the overall style, but also its realism……as any girl with dead straight hair that length will know, you cant get away with having a side pony, without lots of hair from the side you are pulling over from escaping, you can cheat and add lots of clips and spray, but its just not as pretty as letting those pieces fall where they may and making a statement.

Next we have the Chocolate Shrug and its yummy enough to want to eat. What is even better with chocolate PINK! not as a food of course – mind you it does have a rocky road kind of thing going on – but Deep Brown and Soft Pink are a delightful combo.

The pink I am referring to is of course TA DAAAAA! the top of the Scarlet Dress I blogged earlier today from Cachet, YAY I got to show you so soon how great it looks as a top.

Then if you go lower you will see the divine Brown Cords again by Starley and again in the skinny fit, I really love all the sculpty leg options on these pants and they fit soo snug around the hips. The addition of the Brown Heel Strap Platforms was perfect, dont you agree lol and then to top it all off again some gorgy hair by Truth called Fifth Avenue, which is also sculpty flicky goodness.

The look next to it would alternate well if you swapped them all around, this time the pants are the Ultra Dark Jeans by Celestial Studios, with the addition this time of one of Popfuzz Designs tank tops in blue, I really love her tanks as she does this cool thing with the shading between the breasts that really allows the fabric to look detached from the skin, for a more realistic look.

The hair from Truth is Angel, a lovely side swept bangs medium length do, that has really nice volume to it , and I am so delighted by his red packs and brown packs.


The next style in the fantabulous Hat is the Angel 2 style from TRUTH, and the hat has dropdown on touch options of plaid- love plaid- or plain in various colours, but seriously can you get better than Grey Plaid?.

I lectured or did I suggest, I cant remember, that Truth neeeeds to sell this hat seperate, as its so cute I want to wear it with other hair tooooo. But he has plans for more sculpted hats in the future so keep your eyes peeled for those- I say we give him a fortnight and if he hasnt made more we get that hat seperately lol.

The pants this time are the Grey Cords and you know I loves me the Grey, they are yummy and so well shaded in all the worn in areas, Starley did a fabulous job on all these new pants, and today is just a taste you neeeed to go look at all of them. Elika didnt let me down, there is a fabulous Steel colour in the Heel Strap Platforms from ETD , and I can see me wearing those with so many many things.

Also the magnificent Shrug by LaLa FooFoo that also had a Grey to make me a very Happy Vegemite. The versatility of the shrugs is so wonderful too, even though today I am showing them in a more casual combo, they are perfect, especialy the buttonless ones for wearing with pretty frocks on cool nights.
The lovely two tone tank I am wearing underneath; I also bought today from Style Your Destiny by Teagan Blackthorne. Its grey so it was a given I had to have it , and I really liked the shape with the darker grey accentuating the cleavage.

Now lastly we have the Pink Cords and these I had to have coz really I mean HELLLLOOOO! but then they caused me all sorts of drama, because how many pinks are there in SL ?.
Because I was going for contrast and you hadn’t yet seen the black Shrug I went that route, but then hit a dead end on what pink top to wear with.
Believe it or not after about 45745896541223 tops I worked out there was only one choice PURPLE sobs* lol j/k , there is definitely a slight purple tint to the Celestial Studios pink , so thats the turn I took.

The tank is again from Popfuzz Designs and comes on both layers in one of her capri and tank sets but I do believe from my constant harping in the past, Pop did end up making them seperate – ok probably more so because others requested it, but I like to feel I do something lol.

The Black Heel Strap Platforms by ETD are a Must Have for sure, well all of them are really, but regardless of what you do in SL from Corporate to Casual, these shoes will compliment any look. The last hair style and also all are must haves- hell everything I showed today is, scratch that every thing I show every day is lol.

This hair is the Missy Hair from TRUTH Designs and again a mix of sculpties and prims to make a soft feathery side pony that is just a step up from Casual, and whether adorned by a Hair Rose or not can slip easily into formal.

So off you go to LaLa FooFoo , then Celestial Studios…skip across to ETD and then slip and slide to Canimal , once you have all you need take the challenge and teleport to Truth Designs DONT FORGET The latest 1L fat pack he has of hair in his store , and once you are ready to hightail to home DONT , because you still have to go to Popfuzz Designs via Style Your Destiny and GLAM lol

As God is my witness

Today unlike other sundays for SL I had real life errands to run, taking me out of world for a measly 3 hours.

But it seems that in that 3 hours the whole world changed lol. ETD reopened, Grand Openings and Rez Day events happened and Cachet opened its doors……but where the hell were the fireworks.

I actualy IM’d Minnu with that exact question lol-it really is annoying having me on your friends list.

Cachet hasn’t been a secret, as many that attended the GLAM Magazine Event a few weeks ago all got a sneak peak, and we have seen models that were fortunate enough to wear items from the show share with us the items on their blogs YAY!.

I ran over and even though I had to tackle the landing hub over riding the tp to the actual store- be persistant its worth it- I didnt go in because I knew I’d get in everyones way lol so cam was my only solution. A lovely large store which is yet to be filled up, thankfully that means more to come but also the ability to move around without getting stuck in corners.

The clothing is displayed on racks and there is as promised alot of delish black items to tantalise and tease….but one item on its own rack just blew kisses to me and I succumbed to its charms.

The dress is Scarlet and its designed by the lovely Thora Charron, who if you don’t know is Minnu Palens business partner and the very talented woman behind the Minnu Male skins……melts coz they are so hunky.

The Scarlet dress is a heavenly chiffon style formal dress, in a delicate blush pink colour, the bodice is a delight to enhance and shape your cleavage area and falls beautifully to two layers of skirt on seperate attachments so that you can wear it either way. The top straps are actualy also prims and you can move them around to give a more off the shoulder look as I did.

Also with the dress is the lovely creamy leggings that Thora has called “Stalkings” and they are seamed to perfection and tiny tiny fishnet, what I also adore about this dress and am bummed that it ended up cut is that the top is divine in its own right, so either your favourite gown skirt or just some dress pants and you have a whole other look.

Great things are going to come out of Cachet with Thora and Minnu at the helm and I can’t wait to see more. The skin I am wearing is Minnu Model Skin Pale Gray , the hair is Sofia by ETD and a divine Up-Do I think nearly everyone on the grid has and if you dont then DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The shoes are the wonderful Volar shoes by Damen Gorilla of Adam n Eve and he has made such cute little doves on the backs of these all sculptured shoes, and the colour choices are fabulous. The one thing about this dress is that the top half attaches to chest making it difficult to wear necklaces unless moving them around, I opted for a set that doesnt have a necklace because its got enough of a look in just the earrings and bracelet, its the Medallion set by Essentia in Silver as well as the silver Hair Rose.

Make sure you go check out Cachet and grab all the goodies I am sure you will love.

Laynie & S.Y.D Grand Opening

The Grand Opening HERE information is pretty clear on the adorable invite created by Laynie Link and Teagan Blackthorne, two incredible women who have been friends for over ten years in RL now- bet you didn’t know that did you.

In those ten years they have been through some incredible things, supporting each other etc , and while today is supposed to be a joyeous occasion its a bit marred by the fact that someone decided that their own beliefs were greater than decency and compassion for others.

I had the pleasure of blogging Vanessa a long time ago on Appearance Mode– I went by and got my old pic lol – it is still one of my all time favourite Laynie-Wear dresses as its not only beautiful but so versatile. Some (censored) person has decided that because Laynie is extremely giving of her time and creativity to help others, that they would pay that back by stealing her creation and flooding the grid with it.

What they have done is, well there are no words really because its beyond comprehension to me that anyone could be that foul. But the good news is that Laynie has put it in her store for free and the Kiosk remains there for people to make donations to Autism Speaks a charity that many are getting behind… so I urge you not only to attend this great occassion today, but to get the Vanessa dress and dig deep for the cause.

SuperCANIMAListicexpealidoshus

I like many bloggers was fortunate to get a special delivery from Canimal Zephyr today, and it was so exciting to be able to not only receive items from her, but to also go to check out the NEW Canimal build-as I hadn’t had the chance yet.

I didn’t leave empty handed, and actualy I ended up returning much later in the night to grab one last item that had been niggling at me all day. So todays post is a mix of the incredible Essence Skins and some great clothings from Canimal and some other incredible designers.

The first outfit is the stunning Rebel Yell dress, and yes I have been singing Billy Idol for about 16 hours now-and its driving me a bit batty I must admit.

I stood there gazing adoringly at these dresses – since I use cam to shop I really hope I wasnt gazing at anyone in particular at the same time, I usualy end up in a corner with my nose in the wall while I shop, even more fun when with others and you say ‘do you like that one?” and they think you are losing your mind.

There are lots of funktastic colours to choose from in this dress, and I decided that if I was going to do wild animal print, then I was going to be adventurous – silently praying that the incredible Estella shoes I knew came in green were the right green.

The dress comes with both the micro mini and the flex skirt option, Canimal though does do her micro a little different than the usual loincloth flap front and back, so that its a bit more of a flipped skirt. This dress once on screamed SNOG ME! and I was off to find SNOG ME Hair…and my dreams were answered with this totaly snoggable hair by booN called HNB27 – you weren’t expecting that were you lol- this hair is wicked and look how perfect it goes with Rebel Yell.

Ok so what is a Snog I hear you ask, welllll in downunder land its a Pash…and in up there and over land its when you kiss so long your face is starting to chafe from his stubble, your hair is so tangled from either rolling around in the grass, or being pinned up against some cheaply upholstered booth in some sleazy dive that its causing static cling to everything.

In otherwords a Snog/Pash is heaven on a stick, and like I said you couldn’t get much more perfect hair than that one to show it, also if you are going to go out on the town in Rebel Yell, its definitely a must, because if that dress doesnt get you a good snog; then you are going to the wrong places.

Ok so the Estella shoes by Tesla are so YUMMY, I mean look how divine they are with their chunka chunka platforms and their delish bows at the back, I had to show you in the black and the lime green so you could see how brill both go with the dress.

All that 80’s music running through my head lead me to the gloves, ok one song over and over but you get the point. In the 80’s it was a huge thing here to wear long formal gloves with itty bitty dresses, don’t know whether it was to fool our parents into believing we were covered more than we were or if it was that we were stylin, either way it was fun.

The Leather Gloves are from Fleur and you get three lengths in each colour pack, short-medium and these long ones, thanks to my winnings at the opening I got to get most of the colours YAY thanks again C.J and Roslin.
I am also wearing the Jade set by Essentia in that gorgeous jade green necklace and earrings, with the tiniest prims making up a beaded fall from the middle of the necklace and the earrings, that just seem to shimmer when worn against the skin.

This next item from Canimal is this darling Patches Skirt , the new build has these market bazaar like stalls in the landing area, and a few are set to sell items and some aren’t lol which is enough to draw you into the store itself…but this beauty was set to sell and I just had to have it even before full rez.

The other day when I shot the vintage tee’s from lavish style this is the exact thing I was wishing I had, in either a long version or even better PANTS! Canimal make me pants like this PLEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAASSSEEEEEEEEE! This skirt is just gorgeous, the beautiful colour choices of the patches of fabric just go so well together in their earthyness. The style is just flippy fun and the length is adorable.

Fishing around for something to wear with wasn’t hard at all. Straight to Maitreya folder for the soft and delightful Mirli sweater in brown, and then the yellow tank that goes with for underneath. If you don’t have the Mirli sweaters already in any colour you really need to invest in some, not only is the style Unique to SL- well it definitely was at the time they were released, not sure about now.

The fantastic way Onyz twisted the fabric at the back to make it open but designed beautifully is not the only draw to it, but the incredible texture itself is so soft looking and the glove extensions make it just perfect for wrapping yourself up in and having others want to wrap themselves around you.

The boots were a no brainer as well, they are the fabulous Pinson boots in Bistre from Enkythings which I actualy have as the L in my logo, so they may look familiar, these were also unique to SL at the time, as they are full prim and so close fitting they are superb…they come in a huge assortment of colours and have additional sizes included and sexy walk attachments as well….Enktan has also included the sounds in all his creations BUT its a HUD so you can wear it with all your shoes or not wear it at all.

The Geometry necklace is by Stephania Marx and she doesnt sell in world right now, but this style was perfect so it gives you an idea of what you might want to accessorise with.

Now again for the fabulous booN store, not only is that another gorgeous hairstyle that I coudnt resist called KRC02 , but I also have on those stunning Sunglasses BF1.6 that not only come in three different attachments, on nose to wear, tucked into hip for pants holding and cleavage as well lol so you look like you would in RL with your sunnies when you dont want to put them away.
They also come with colourchange in a click and dropdown menu, and they are all a delish tortoiseshell texture. I of course opted for Dark Brown to go with the outfit and the stunning chocolate texture of the hair-ok now when you buy these you are going to see that you shouldn’t wear the sunnies with the hair coz the bangs poke through a little BUT I COULDNT RESIST SHOWING YOUUUUUUUUU!.

I also have on the Round 2 bangle set from booN that was only some crazy 30L price and came with three different textures and attached to both wrists options, so you get six bangle sets all up, and they are mod so I was able to tint the plane ones a darker brown and still keep the rich look of the original texture.


I mentioned up top that I went to Canimal and then had to return later on, this is true and this is why. The Lust Corset is sold seperately of its incredible full lingerie set, and I want both the pink and the red full sets eventualy lol but had to go back and get the Red and Pink corsets for only 50L each or it would have driven me crazy wanting them.

We all embraced the pixeldolls corset style belts recently, and well thats not such a new concept to me or many, and its why I get upset when creators only make corsets on the underwear layers.

I read a funny post the other day about the Last Call Sale items, and how they had bought so many and werent wearing them, but should be proud etc- and I know how that is when I am going somewhere really special I pull out old Dazzle – anyway, people are wanting to wear their Last Call but wanting to still look a little different doing so, and this is the perfect way to still keep the Last Call stylish lines, but add a little something something thats equaly divine.

I have on the top and low waist pants from the Ingrid set, and then of course added the Lust corset by Canimal and Voila, a splash of vivid burgundy and you have a whole new outfit that is just gorgeous. The hair is again the KRC02 by booNbut in the Mat colour that also comes with the Chocolate in the pack, I was so excited that my two favs were in one pack.

boo Nakamura of booN doesnt have alot of hair out yet, but enough to keep you wanting more, and there are also some fab fun Mens styles there too so make sure you take your partner/buddy with you when you go, there is also Mens and Womens clothing and Accessories so well worth the look around as the build is divinely layed out and large enough to spend a lot of time in.

With this outfit as its a perfect neckline enhancer I am wearing the beautiful Casablanca Jewelry set by Essentia, as well as all the Hair Roses I wear in every post :o) Casablanca comes in Gold and Silver and is heavenly. The stunning shoes you cant really see but they are there and the most gorgeous rich burgundy as well so they are perfect to wear with this combo, they are the Serpenti shoes in Sangre by Adam n Eve’s Damen Gorilla .

Now more about the incredible Essence Skins by Canimal… In all the clothing Pics I am wearing Essence (Mystery)..of Simplicity and its just gorgeous, the tones are all named after female traits which is just beautiful to think that we as women share those wonderful and inspiring qualities. Charisma , Grace , Charm, Lust and Mystery- giggles at Lust because we are sooo nawty, if men only knew lol.

I wanted to also show the incredible make up options of the skins and I did that in the other pic, showing you in no order at all lol.
Candy
Earth
Elements
Ether
Madness
Pinup
Poise
Poison
Rain
Roses
Simplicity
Snow
Sugar
Sunset
Witchcraft.
One thing I came to realise while taking all these pics, is that there is a kind of youthful glow to the skin, a clean healthy living kind of look to it, that even though you may wear alot of make up, you are still making sure to drink lots of water and use a good cleaning product lol.

That was also my realisation is that even though its youthful its a mature youth , because when you are realy young you cant ever put on make up that well.

The other exciting things about these NEW Essence skins is that the eyebrows and lips are modify, not only can you change your brows colour to suit your ‘Natural’ hair colour- giggles- but you can also change intensity of lipstick and lipgloss also, and if that doesnt rock your world then the fact that Canimal has included 5 eyebrow options should, because defining the shape of your brows is touch work and I love all the alternatives they really change the way you look in the skins, and those are actualy included in the Demos too.

As well as Skins Canimal has been making New Eyes, which are the Essence Soul Eyes and as the saying goes they are the windows to your soul.

They are very realistic looking with the colour of the white area and the veiny effect, and most of us usualy opt for very white which can look a bit strange depending on the size of your eyes. These are an alternative and the colours and reflective shine to them are lovely.

So make sure you go and get all the DEMOS you can of the NEW Essence Range from Canimal, and take a gander through her NEW build as the clothing is awesome.

Lavish me with Style part 2

Ok I know, not a really imaginative title but you knew it was coming. Yesterday I showed you some wonderful items by Katy Angel of Lavish Style, and today I want to share a few more with you.
Some of you will remember my coming to terms with purple in old old posts lol, and some of you will not have any clue at all what I’m rambling about. Well imagine the hours it took to find suitable items to wear with this beautiful top called Darya. You see I could have taken the easy way out, and just teamed it up with black pants and been done with it, but one thing I think I know about purple lovers; is that they reeeeeeeeeeeeeally LOVE purple.

I also really didn’t want to cheat, but show the beauty of this top, and what could be put together to make a smart and attractive look.

First off again, beautiful shading and creases make this halter style-on the jacket layer for length-really work for one of those late afternoon moving into early evening outfits.

It took what seemed like hours to find the perfect pants in my opinion, so much so that they saved me on the next shirt too-but in different colour-

The Amarantine pants in Eggplant by CKS Designs , are just a lovely pair of dress slacks with prim cuffs made on both pants and underpants layers so you can wear with or without prims, depending on your mood.
I love the oversized buttons on the back pocket and waistband, as its a really retro look, and the Amarantine was one huge release of incredible seperates that I think you could mix and match for months.
The beautiful addition of the heart shaped detailing on the straps and the hemline of this top is done in an incredible rich gold, and purple lovers and people who like to co-ordinate know that gold and purple are a divine combo.

The gold being a real antique sort of brushed gold, made me straight away think about the Damen Gorilla Romantica Slippers from Adam n Eve that are free with the incredible Gown I posted on a few days ago. So already they have been perfect for another outfit and did I mention FREEEEEEEEE!. The skin is the Tan/Essential Purple from Popfuzz Designs, and the lipstick is perfect with the shading of the top, and of course the skin also enhances the fabulous scoop of the top too- or does the top enhance the skin- either way they are a treat together.

The hair I am wearing is another of the NEW releases by H.C.T and is called Lysa, which is a full flex mane of lovely, a superb layer cut and the colour chestnut is just rich and striking.

This next top Misty caught my eye straight away, the jump into edit to see if it was on two seperate layers only took a moment and joy joy it is.

I really like the long sleeve white shirt underneath and maybe even some other colours in the same style will happen in the future when Im mixing and matching.

But the love for me is definitely for the top layer , its so prettyful and all about the girly girl. The gorgeous
ruffle around the upper waistline and the unbuttoned top is just yummy.

Worn with the Green Amarantine pants this time the combo is perfect for this time of year and yes I love green-kiss/shoot me I’m Irish, lol well half of me is anyway, the part with the mouth me thinks. The skin is the Minnu Model Tan/Skingloss Holiday, which has such a fresh clean look to it too-I almost went with orange lipstick but then Id be a flag.

The shoes are the fab Talyn Heels by Enkythings and I adore that all the colours available have gold, silver or black heels options, I went for the gold-ok so Im kind of a flag. I love the structure of these shoes, they are a must have staple in whichever colour rocks your world, as they can go conservative to sexy very easily. To bring some of the gold and green back up top I went with the stunning Bamboo set by Essentia, which is an amazing bamboo design in gold necklace and earrings set, with jade detailing…you can see a better picture of it on OnRez HERE.

Hair is by H.C.T and is another of the NEW styles by Babyboo Glitterbuck called Sunny, and this one has cute little side braids and the lovely bangs in one of my favourite blondes called Dirty.

Poses are everyones as usual but also I again used some Poseur poses :o).

I still have more to show you of Lavish Style so stay tuned over the next few days for those and make sure you check out her store for all these amazing pieces and the ones already shown.
