Subculture Challenge Ganguro

G

Sileny Noel came up with an incredible challenge last week , the Subculture Challenge, where you send her an IM with two numbers between 1 and 44 and you get sent back two subcultures. You have no idea what they are going to be, and the range is amazing. So I sent off my numbers and VOILA!

I got Ganguro , this was awesome, as Mel and I have been watching so much anime lately, and he has been reading lots of manga, so I actually knew what this was sort of lol. Anyway I was excited, so I endeavoured to try my hand at making the make up layer myself, and even though it isn’t the best, not even close, I had fun with it.

Definitely the perfect week though for LeLutka to release hair with roots lol, and all the vibrant colours I own in awesome clothing due to fatpack love, I was able to go directly to items I knew I had, even though most already blogged in the past in other colours. I also got the chance to show off my new KaS ballet boots I got this week, the boots are not only stunning in design, but they are colourchange from a full rainbow hud, so you can colour match to anything anytime. Not only can you change the whole boot, but you can opt to change every part of the boot individually or parts together, giving you a crazy combination or a stylish contrast. I think I had enough colour going on so opted for this awesome orange. These are made so well that the reflections do not tint, so they look amazing no matter what.

Skin Fair is in full flow at the moment, the amount of people visiting is huge, which is so great for all involved. You still have time to get over there if you haven’t and grab as many if not all the demos you can. I also heard that the Skin Addiction Group in world has a lot of the demos in their archives of notices, so you can also go that route and plan ahead.

Firstly though some wonderful new boots from J’s are the belted ankle boots. These come with the option of belt on or off and to my surprise the colours of this release are unlike any I have seen before from J’s. I mean get a load of that hot pink, wowza. J’s has made these for both alpha viewers as well as invisi prims options, so yay for wearing with pants with prim cuffs.

These look so fierce with my mix and match ensemble from Glam Affair, the Nero collection from a while back, pieces that I haven’t shown in the past, but look awesome mixed together. The pantaloon like shorts are so cute too, I really like how versatile they are. I am really glad that one of the sets had the black pasties on tattoo layer as well, so that I could be a bit more conservative under the lace undershirt. This collection is so cool to pull to pieces and make new and fab looks with.

Of course it all looks wonderful over the Mary Skin also by Glam Affair and at Skin Fair. The make up options are divine and so many options in the skins pack. Blush tattoos, eyebrow colours and hair base options, so much included. There are many gorgeous tones and it really is a beautiful skin, so remember DEMO DEMO DEMO.

Three new uppy do styles from Exile, a formal do, a looser more casual uppy do, and this incredible bunches of buns look that is so fun. I am showing off the different tones and hair with the lovely Cynful kini’s in other colours not shown before, and I have to show much love for the green.

Phoenix is Foxy

Weslaw

It is Saturday for me in 16 minutes, but technically only the starting few hours of flf, now while I don’t generally do flf posts, this is kind of a combo, because as you know I have this thing for …

Hee hee Whippet & Buck have out a dress (NOT SHOWN) and the nifty unisexy long sleeve shirts, I am actually wearing the mens version so that you can see that the shading is done for men specifically, and the ladies have their own too, it is not just one shirt worn two ways. Anywho, while I was there I poked my head inside and saw the Phoenix Shift dresses that I didn’t have until now, and yum system skirt love as usual. This dress is fabulous, and the colours it comes in made a fat pack necessary.

I am showing some Tesla foot love today, have you all noticed she is back, not only giving away ducky avatars as gifts at her store, but also making special pose props, now you all just have to send her some love and encourage the shoes/boots. The lovely floral top I am wearing is another flf item from So Many Styles, so perfect in colour to wear with my Jade set from Essentia, and all that green made getting both colours of the Clawtooth and Clawtooth flf hair a must as well.

Riddle me this …where can you find some incredible argyle, Riddle of course :) have an awesome day.

Ballgowns and Ballgags

Ballgags and Ballgowns 1

Ballgags and Ballgowns 2

Before my gorgeous man Mel went away for Christmas, Newdoll, he and I were talking in skype as we do, being silly. I was yacking about what kind of posts I need to do next, and I was rambling on and every time I blurted out something, he would add something, so we ended up with Ball Gowns and Ball Gags, I wont tell you the others because you will want to do them :P.

So as I wont be with Mel for New Years I thought I could at least dress for it, and it is 19.5hours to go for me down here. The two gowns I am wearing are both from LeLutka, a last release for the year, and one that Thora had been working on for months, the gowns are exquisite and there are enough styles in the collection for you to find one you Must Have for new years. The top one has an over head cape like cover, but I wanted to expose my hair that I love which I don’t think you can get anymore but is too beautiful to hide, just as the Zoe from Maitreya is, both such elegant updo’s but in a non traditional way.

My favourite leather – even though to me they look like satin or whatever i say at the time – gloves are from 5th and oxford as usual, and I am so sad to see that they have reduced everything in the store to 50L and arepacking up for a while, some items i hope will be on marketplace because I love these gloves so much, they come in three lengths per colour, so don’t delay go run get them for 50L each.

The oh so yummy Harness Ballgag is by VR Foundry who makes my  VR Studio which is the only equipment I use, the ball gag fits the face superbly and back when it was made it won lots of awards, and is still awesome. It has all the bells and whistles a ball gag should, but my favourite part is that I can edit the ball to match my ballgown lol.

What a day for newness today has been. The hair from LeLutka was a surprise as we had all been awaiting the release of the FAME shoes and legwarmers, which I have been teased all over the place this past week. I really love the professional style of them, mixed with a more modern and European use of colour and style. I have these shoes in plain black leather in RL, and I have worn them so often for different reasons. Definitely impressive job interview shoes, especially for fashion retail, they say you know what is what, and yet you also know you will be spending a lot of time on your feet, the sturdy heel and supportive shape are integral in the style.

The leg warmers come with , but are an option, as they are separate attachments. The legwarmers are texture change, and you have a solid or striped option in those, they are so pretty structurally that I can see them becoming the go to warmers for months to come. Now as I said the hair was a surprise, but when you see the names you will probably guess that they wanted to keep it as a surprise, and that is so nice. I actually saw Willamina who I am guessing they were named after in the store after the release, and Gorgeous is a no brainer, it has to be after GoGo of JuicyBomb so the colour was an easy choice too.

The use of the same bangs for a few of these styles was awesome, the pulled back twisted pony is marvelous and totally looks like a pulled back version of the other two, and I have discussed that in the past, that often this just enhances the reality of it being your own hair, rather than extreme changes as many of us do lol.

So then after all that to find out that Gala was about to release new skins called Ice Queen, and not only that, but there are lipstick and eyebrow tattoos in blonde and black available, fingers crossed that they will seperately purchaseable as she keeps her tones so precise it would be awesome. I can see this skin being a development of all the begging for the Yum mouth and the recent Autumn face style, a really beautiful face and the most amazing glossy lips, they are incredible, I don’t know how she does them like that, I can only imagine she pours gloss all over a scanner, which would make for a very expensive experiment – so do not do that at home .

A whomp bomp a loo la

Tutti

The background used in todays pic is a merge of location shot and PS work, as in the outside of the window is me chopping down a smaller pic to fit. Free to use in the Second Life Stock Images Group on Flickr .

I think jeans lovers of the grid rejoiced when Bela Tolsen hit the grid. I have said it before, and it only gets proved every release, the woman really knows how to do pattern work with pants, and the jeans in this post are all incredible. Even if you are not into the overly patterned, there is so much range in her prints that there is bound to be something that catches your eye. I could seriously stay in the grey stiched pair near the window for yonks.

Also wonderful to have as a staple, and I do love that these are solids not prints, the off shoulder tops, also from Tutti Frutti. A little raised on one side, perfectly styled for off the shoulders, and also a great piece to do layered looks with. I decided to keep it simple today though, some ElikaTira hairstyles – please Elika may we have some MOOOORRRREEEEE.

Shying away from the sun, in the new Glam Affair skin Jadis, in the Yuki pale edition. Different brows to choose from, and option of with or without hair base.The hair base is a creamier white than usual, so you will have to be careful when choosing hair attachments, yay for demos. I opted for the full styles though, and with the brow options going to black it was a no brainer really. There is even a no brow option for those that wear tattoo options.

More of the Jadis to come in other darker tones, so don’t worry you don’t miss out if you don’t go for a paler skin. This one is lovely though, and the make ups are delightful. Not only am I taking the Tee*fy flats for another spin, I am also wearing the yummy and snuggly scarf that is another item at the Albero Dollar Market, these items are made as transfer for gift purchases for Christmas, so don’t miss out.

Those of you that believe that names have meanings, will know that this skins release could not come at a better time of the year.

Natasha means Festive Season,or Christmas child. It is russian in origan and if you call a Natasha Nat not Tash, you might end up with a black eye – that is my experience anyway. This is the new face of LeLutka skins, and will be released this weekend…I for one am so excited about this skin because it seems so much softer and I just love the lips and nose and softness about the whole skin. The body is also fantastic, and Whimsy even exclaimed that I have anklebones, which I don’t know that I didn’t in past skins, I looked at the last and they are there also, but apart from looking at all the skins I own, I am not sure that that isn’t common or not lol.

Natasha comes with only blonde hair base and brows, going towards a more nordic look as Minnu puts it, but the beautful red and brown brows and hair base from Milla release fit perfectly as they are the same tones base. But with Natasha there are only four tones. There are 8 skins in the fatpack, one of which is a base skin no make up, but there are such wonderful choices to wear.

At the moment there are still no hair attachments to go with the new bases, but I found that the Amacci Ponytail attachments in Vanilla Blonde get very close to matching as you can see in the pics. I am also wearing the new Luck Inc corsets with the luck inc undies set I wore the other day, I will do more pics of those in posts to come. The corsets are stunners, and so definitely outerwear options.

The gorgeous pose I am using in this post is from Long Awkward Pose, and is a hunt item from the With Love Hunt that started tonight, so make sure you get all the info on that and don’t miss out. The starting point is at Swansong
