Toy Story

I think I am doing a relay with myself in this post. So I was with Newdoll in Voice and then Whimsy got online, so it ended up one of those crazy grid hops. While Newdoll was in my ear asking about one place, I was spluttering at Whimsy about her not having enough from another.

Brownzilla..

I didn’t make it out without picking up some fun stuff myself, the trip to Canimal let me get the bra to one of my favourite corsets the Lust Corset, it is actually hiding underneath in pink and funnily enough the red version is what Newdoll was wearing under her shirt last night too – ooo maybe I stole her baton lol.

The adorkable Tshirts are also from Canimal and are a pack of five Streetwear Little Miss Tshirts in Canimal Style with more funna Little Miss’s. Atop my head is one of the New Piggy‘s from Pink Fuel , these I got yesterday and they are as adorable as the deer, so you must get them too.

Doing some light reading with the Crone book of Shadows from Dark Eden, part of the collection of Magical bits that were a recent release. After we left Canimal we hightailed it over to MNK Newdoll had been recently and wanted me to see the latest, I am never to familiar with names of some stores until I land, and both Whimsy and I are sure we have been in the past, there are so many wonderful items there.

The Tweed Short Pants come with medium length and short versions, and I just had to have in all colours, tweed is just fabulous and these will make great mix and match items.

The hair is Messy by LeLutka which is closed at the moment, but big things are brewing over there, it is going to be an amazing re-opening I can just feel it.

Brownzilla.

Another item I just couldn’t resist from MNK – and do not do what I did and buy just the one, because the pack is a steal – I was laughing so hard at those two in IM that I wasn’t paying attention, which is always dangerous when shopping. This is the SugarCake outfit in brown, and OMG how cute is that baloon skirt.

I am such a teen/young adult of the 80’s so fashion like this is love, I don’t care what you say, if you are in your mid to late 30’s and were trying to pretend you were 18+ in the mid 80’s you will know what I am talking about, there was fashion, fantastic fashion actually, there was just too much teeny bopper stuff in music clips at the time too that overpowered.

Ok rant aside :P. The Sugar Cake set has this incredible layered balloon skirt that to me and as the name suggests looks just like cake, I mean HELLLLOOOO could that be more funna?, this is the only time when cake goes to your hips that you can be happy. Ok the short upper portion perhaps isnt designed to wear solo, because the glitch pants are mid length, but throw on a pair of shorties or not :P and you have a mini balloon skirt, the skirt is made of solid prims so you can totally get away with that no worries.

As you can see you get two style tops in the set, and again grab the pack of two colours because the difference is like 50L so well worth it.

The Bangle set is from Dark Mouse and is the Lotus Flower and Bamboo bangles , these are just lovely work, I did however have to tint the inside faces of the prims as they were red and with those poses it was a bit in your face, but in a good way trust me. The Hair I have on is the Lisa style again from LeLutka as is all the hair today, I really love the long styles over there, and as you know I am a huge fan of the textures as they are shared with Maitreya, so the ability to grab your favs from both stores is rocking my world.

You want to know where my skin is from don’t you ? I can hear you getting crabby at me from here lol, well I aint telling until I tell :P.

Brownzilla...

I should tell now though, because you will think I am going to tell at the end, and then you will scroll ha ha ha tricked you. The beautiful New Infinity Brand of Skins are all created by Annyka Bekkers of Blowpop. In November of last year Annyka sent some people some Beta test bases for her new skins, we were asked for input and I had my comments, bet you can guess what one of them was :P.

Annyka made some changes and sent again a few weeks later, and then we only heard the occasional peep as she worked very hard to release these all hand drawn skins, but not just one skin but I do believe there are 4 , the reason I am not certain is that I have three but saw a flickr pic of hers with four, anyway regardless in the weeks to come there is going to be the Newly Rebranded Infinity Line of Luscious Skins by Annyka Bekkers.

This first one I am showing today is Ava in the Pure Honey tone, the make ups are look 1,2,3 and 4 not in that order lol but you will see when you DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The tone is just lovely and that right blend in around sunkissed. The collarbone as you can see if gorgeous and the shading all up and down the body is remarkable.

The face is beautiful, especially that nose and mouth, I think the face is just charming and the other skins in the line are equally so, you will see them soon I promise. One thing I didn’t grab a pic of and I should have, is that the skins all have a hair base, and no for once I am not talking down there, but actually on the skull, yep no more of the men only getting that option, allowing for a hair base for unrezzed sculpties, or the comfort of deprimming at lag filled events, you get both with and without hair options, so make sure you check out the demos of those as soon as they are released.

The tank top tshirt I have on is from LaLa FooFoo and is so pretty in that shade of pink, with lots of layer options of both tucked and untucked. The pants are another Must Have from MNK , they are the Stripe Pants Set and come in various colours, but you get all three options in the one pack YUMMMY, I can’t pick a fav pair in the three because they all rock.

The Hair is Venera by LeLutka and this style and Lisa are two of my favs from their range, being that dried by the sun kind of look. The Tortoiseshell Bangle and Soft Pink Hair Rose are by Essentia.

Brownzilla

Ok so both Newdoll and Whimsy headed off, and I went solo for a bit, ok a lot…I ended up doing a quick scan of the feed and came across Chic’s Blog – I always smile when I open her blog, because seeing someone name their blog after one of your rant/thunks is pretty awesometastic in my opinion. Anyway she was posting on the Twisted hunt and I hadn’t had a chance to check it out yet, but what caught my eye was more the name of a store not the items only.

So off I tp’d to Dilly Dolls and was happy to see they are having a 70% off Sale at the moment, so while I was there not only did I grab some bargains and help a girl win on a lucky chair, but picked up this fabulous set called Darkened Mad Hatter, seriously this store has some serious Alice in Wonderland themes going on , but this set with or without the hat to me was screaming to be had.

This set is gorgeous and very very swanky indeed, I think this is a must have for both sexes especially at the sale price. The shirt portion is so obviously hand drawn and is so cute, all of it is, you do get shoes with the set but I couldn’t resist posting in the New Marie Jeannes from Insolence.

These gorgeous patent shoes come in a variety of shiny colours, the pink are just so pretty and the camel and beige are lots of fun with my brownzilla love. I totally can see these getting lots of wear and tear this coming season and they look so delish with socks its not even funny.

The hair is Peta by LeLutka and is a great bun style for a more conservative approach.

This is so exciting a concept, and while Alaska Metropolitan gives full credit to those that helped her, and also discovered this ingenious process, it is Synergy by Opium her own brand that is going to make us all sit up that didn’t know about it and go OMG.
Synergy
You are wondering what I am raving about I am sure, well first lets do the pics and then I will explain. The store the tie is from has a story, some of you have read it before, so bear with me, because it is one of my favourites.

2nd day in world Sasy goes to a fair at Transylvania, stands there in awe of the beautiful items on show, popping gum with her hair from Panache that she swears she will never take off. She comes across a booth which is now, not sure about then, called Gothic Dreams, and the lovely Xultana Lowell passes her a folder, squeeling with delight she puts on the items and declares that she will stand there all day and show how wonderful the School Girl Goth set she was handed as a gift is to the public – and I swear I was serious I would have stayed there until my face hit the keyboard.

Xultana is I am sure amused by me and invites me to her studio to help her do the vendor pic for the set, as it had not been made or released yet. I go with total excitement and got to pose for her pics, she even let me keep my bubblegum in lol, come on you all know you were hooked when you came into world and found the 5L gum machines.

I put on the shoes I had at the time which were from Parallax View and Xultana passed me a pair in plain black, same exact shoe and let me keep them – such a generous lady… and to this day I am still in her store in the vendor ad for that set, I even went to check tonight to be sure before I bored you all to death… due to prim limits I am in the multi vendor so if you want to see Sasy when I was 2 days in world thats were to look lol, but nearly 3 years later she has never replaced me, and I still have that outfit ♥, and the memories.

Ok so back to the tie, every so often I get nostalgic and go and visit Gothic Dreams, and the last time I was there with Fia I picked up the wonderful British Love tie, it would probably look hotter with a collared shirt perhaps but I love it this way, because of the collar built into the tie itself. The red, white and blue is just fab for mixing with casual or punked out looks, that this one is slightly.

Concord Clothing has a smallish range of casual/dressy items, the store is a small one but hopefully will get bigger over time, one thing as a blogger that freaks me out is misplacing a folder within a folder, luckily for me this one ended up inside one that hadn’t been put in the correct place; but was still in my to blog folder. So I apologise for the lateness of showing these items.

The Red Low Scoop Shirt actually comes with two tanks on all layers as well as the shirt itself. Great layer options in this store, pretty much every option is covered, with the benefits of extras like the tanks. Whether with or without the tanks the shirt is really well presented, and the shading is perfect for the style.

The Black jeans by Concord Clothing are fabulously low cut and beautifully stitched and shaped, with two prim options for the cuffs, as well as without cuffs options on the clothing layers. I will talk more about the jeans next pic.

The hair is by Truth and is the Tahlia hair, beautiful tails that end with loose braids, the thick bandeau style hair wrap is texture change on click with oodles of options colour wise, and because Truth rocks he has left the hair mod, so you can still change the band if you choose to a texture you like from your own inventory.

The gloves are the Leather Gloves Grey, from Sassy Kitty Designs that I bought the other day when grabbing the skull gloves. The Valentina Slouch boots are from Lya that I showed in the black the other day, and come in both slouch plain and slouch lace upper parts for whatever mood you are in.

Synergy.
Ok the more about the Concord Clothing jeans is, how curvy do I look, wowza. These are the dark Blue Jeans, and there is something just sexy about that shade of deep blue denim that makes you never want to take them off, especially for those of you that love your curvyness these are tremendous.

The Tshirt is the Red Tshirt also from CC and again for a casual look that has some class to it, the shading on these is wonderful. Wanting to finish off that tight jeans and ultra smart casual look , I went with the Snakeskin boots by Lya, these come in two options of pattern and are just yummy.

Brand Spankin New hair from Truth is the Amber style, the demo is in carrot and made me salivate for his new textures in the light natural reds, this is the Pumpkin and don’t you just want to eat it up. A lot of the time the windblown look hair only really works with pics, this style is just shy of being too much that way inclined and works well for just every day wear.

The Hair Rose in Red Harmony by Essentia, really works well with the red tone of the Tshirt also from Essentia is the Blue Tortoiseshell bangle, which now comes on both right and left.

Mmmmmmmmthat make up la di da, wont be long and I will fill you in :P.

Synergy..
It being so long since I got the folder of Concord Clothing, I went over tonight to see if there was anything new, not so much but I couldn’t resist another pair of jeans, this time in the red, also the Black Cardigan is a lovely mid length cardi that I have put on over the top of the white tank that came with the scoop neck shirt.

This hair is also New and is the Miabella hair from Truth, this is so beautiful, named after Miabella Foxley the incredible Photographer that recently did the Maitreya spring campaign ads, as well as the owner of my favourite Flickr Group SL Picture Pile Ups, if you ever want to play with pictures in Gimp or PS, and you are a bit hesitant or don’t know where to start this group is BONZA.

There is something so interesting about editing other peoples pics, you see things and are inspired more sometimes than with your own, you can also add a pic to the discussions and let others edit yours – suggestion, use a plain background when submitting one, as I have noticed people don’t like doing much to ones with lots going on in the background, it’s a lot of work removing all of that.
Synergy...

Oooooooooooo so I am ready to shoot the rest of the skin and a notice came about a New release from Paradisis, PERFECT timing, I mean seriously it could not have been better, I try not to jump ahead with items I post on, it gets confusing after a while, but again PERFECT TIMING. For a start they have moved location so yes I have updated my slurls page, the other thing is the outfit is way too cute.

The Jacket is the G Girl Jacket , and the pants are the G Girl Luv Jeans. Lets point out the love, first off the jacket, the back has 100% Geekette emblazoned across the back, so that’s love right there. Then you have the ipod in the front pocket that is primperfect and so cute. Now on the arm pocket there is a cigarette, and as I have been smoke free for my second full week now after 20+ years that had to be hidden in edit, thanks for it being mod lol.

The collar is soft and warm with it’s pink knit, ending with the same knit at the cuffs and band. Then moving down to the pants, low hipsters, that go so much lower than you might want in your pants, lol but that is why they were PERFECT.

The have fab tear/rips across the backs of them and full rolled up cuffs – not shown- that are just great. These come as seperates and are so fun to have, especially the wonderful jacket.

The hair I am wearing is Wendy also by Truth and has sideswept bangs in this version as there is a number 2 I showed earlier in the week.

Ok OK OK , so ready , are you listening ?.

Synergy by Opium is Alaska Metropolitan’s new foray into Skins, this is by no means Alaska’s first skin line, many of you know that already, but some wont, so trust me :P.

VERY IMPORTANT, these are not released yet, but this is something that you will want to pay close attention to the release of.

We are all the same underneath, has never been more true, when you realise how these new skins work. Right now I am different from you , but you are all the same lol. That’s confusing but let me explain, because until last week I never knew this.

Every one of us has a default skin, a skin layer that is actually part of the avatar that does not come on any layers at all. If you have ever seen the really old old New Resident skins you will remember them as being very flat, no real texture to them etc, well they live in your hard drive.

That is what I mean by us all being the same, inside every you there is the exact same avatar skin, no matter what skin creators skin you wear, underneath it is the default LL skin.

Now Alaska does not take credit for being a genious, she passes that to Namssor of Second Skin labs…but regardless of who this is to me incredible, and I can see it changing many things in the skin/tats/fetish industry.

Ok so think about that LL default skin a sec *shivers with you* and imagine if you were able to make that default one that was a hundred thousands times better looking. That if you somehow were able to peel off your (insert name of other skin store here) skin and have something that wasn’t so cringe worthy underneath…interesting thought right.

Well between Namssors knowledge and Alaska’s brilliance you can, you see when Synergy opens you will be able to buy a new default skin.

Now you are asking why the hell you would want one…ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh thats the exciting part. You see if you have on a beautiful default, then anything you put on an in world skin layer goes over the top right ? nods*, and if you were to put something on the skin layer that wasnt solid but was in fact mostly alpha that would show up as an EXTRA LAYER OPTION.

*picks most of you off the floor*. You know those plea’s you hear all the time, for tattoo layers, or why can’t i just buy make up?… well now my lovelies you can.

This is how it works.

1. You buy the files of Head, Upper and Lower body parts from Synergy. When you get them in your inventory you will see them as textures.

2. You right click and open each texture, then you click on File at the top left of your screen and press on Save Texture As. This will save that texture to your harddrive. I recommend when saving it, save it to a folder on your desktop called Synergy.

3. You need to open that folder on your desktop and rename each texture… head needs to be head_color , upper body needs to be upperbody_color , and lower body needs to be lowerbody_color…these will need to be saved as TGA files, so make sure that they are when you save them.

4. Open the folder on your harddrive C:/Program Files/Second Life/character/ and then copy paste those three textures into that folder, there should be a popup asking if you want to override the ones already in there, press yes to all.

5. Relog

6. Make a new folder and name it Synergy Skin – Yours or something you will remember. Then Right click and create new body parts> Skin. Wear the new skin it is blank of anything, once you have it on rebake, Ctrl Alt R , and you will see the base skin you purchased.

7. Pat yourself on the back, your new back :).

8. Now I swear to you you are new underneath, if you do not believe me, then make another skin in that folder , and wear it, then go into appearances and press the skin button, you will see three boxes with grey filled in and a cross over them. If you want to be daring drag an image from your photo album over to one of the boxes :P , I promise if this is a new skin you just made yourself you cannot harm anything. DO NOT DO THIS TO OTHER MOD SKINS THAT YOU HAVEN”T MADE A BACK UP COPY OF FIRST IN THE FOLDER.

9. Now if you were at Synergy you would not have been able to pass up the Make Ups, and they are GORGEOUS. When you purchase those and they are so inexpensive its insane, you will see they look to be a skin, so you are probably well confused as to why you need to do all this at all.

10. Wear the Make Up skin, and you will see that the make up is sitting on the skin you just added to your hard drive, if you did not do the hard drive steps, you will see pretty make up on top of the default LL skin and probably be crying in a corner by now.

11. If you are crying go back to the hard drive steps and start over :) *hugs*, if not you will see the genious that is Synergy.

Now what are the reasons that this is so exciting, other than make up will be cheaper to buy, and you now don’t have a default LL skin.

There are many, first off realise you have been given a big amount of trust in that the textures that you bought and put on your Hard Drive are full perms, some are already scared of what that will mean, it will mean that really awful people will try and use them for their own skin store possibly, but they will get caught :).

Now those that are mod fans, will know and also see in the credits that Alaska has put in her notecards, that the skin base used in this is partially Eloh Eliots, and I do mean partially, a LOT of modifying went into this skin to make it Alaska’s work primarily.

But those that are already fans as I have said will realise this means they can make their own make ups once they buy the base, and yes Alaska also is going to set up the option for people to sell make ups as part of a Synergy third party reseller plan which is awesome, but you will need to buy the bases at Synergy for them to work correctly.

The first three skins I am wearing in the pics are Synergy make ups and they are sooooooo gorgeous, wearing the make up skins over the NEW Synergy default…now the Fourth skin/make up is my mod. This is why it was a perfect release.

I made simple lashes very dark using brushes in PS, and also a rough eyeshadow in black also , to give a kind of dramatic eyes look, there is absolutely nothing else on the layer, just the lashes and black, no face no lips nothing.

But then I got more daring, because you see as minimal down there is on the Synergy Skin base, it had a tiny line just above the pants. So being very daring I grabbed the lower layer texture in ps and cloned it away, then because it was a demonstration of versatility, I grabbed the upper layer, and threw on a heart brush and then removed the upper body part, brining it in as an alpha just like you would clothing or tattoos, threw them all on a skin base made by me in world and voila, I am tattooed, Dramaticly eyed, and discreetly not showing with my extra low pants.

Like I said this is a release you are going to want to keep tabs on, the options are going to be amazing.

The Sexy Velvet dress is from a store called Sassy Kitty, so how could I resist.I actually came across it on xstreet and decided I was in the mood for taking a gamble, I can’t help it but xstreet still feels that way for me, onrez was so safe *sighs*.

Anyway I purchased this dress and it was exactly as I hoped it would be, actually a bit sexier on I have to admit. The fabric is lovely, and the ring cut outs are very shagadelic. I tp’d over to the actual store last night at Sassy City – have to admit feeling a touch corny being there – and grabbed these fabulous Skull gloves, for 20L they were a bargain and a half and come in other colours and other prints, but skully ones are a Must Have.

Wanting to wear something that was going to show off the New Grace Skin by PXL this dress was it. The new skin has a very charismatic face, beautifully shaded with full lips and a great nose, if you haven’t already worked it out I have a thing about my nose.

The body detailing is as usual very meticulously carried out, Hart Larsson of PXL takes a lot of pride in his attention to detail, there are alot of options in the Grace Skins, there are 7 lip colours and 4 eyeshadow/make up options as well as dfferent brows and freckles versions also.

There are also different ways of fat packing the skins, by either purchasing based on eye make up or lipstick. THe liquid liner effect especially in this one shown is just lovely.

The boots I am wearing in both pics are from Lya, they are the Valentina slouch boots, they are beautiful leather ankle boots, with gorgeous colours and the ability to have them lace topped or not, not everyone likes lace. What I really like is that without the slouch portion these boot bases will look fantastic with dress pants or jeans, they have that biker boot feel to them.

The stunning hair I am wearing is from Magika and is the Raid hair, I really like long tails that have bands wrapped around them at various lengths.

sprocket.

I really don’t grasp the quickie idea very well do I lol. This next set is from UnZipped, it is called Vintage Steam Punk and is a great set with different options of wear. One option not shown is a full length ball gown skirt that is just gorgeous and I still have on, but that you will have to see when you visit the store.

The other fab options are the short style skirt and the fabulous bloomers, the back and front straps on this set are just lovely. I have added the Gloves from the MAiiKI striped strapless set, I love these gloves and have begged forever for them to be sold as seperates in lots of colours.

Again the Grace skin looks so beautiful especially when wearing the gold/tan colours of the set, they really highlight the beauty of the tone of Grace by PXL . The hair again by Magika is the Lulu hair and you cannot really see it well enough on these pics, but it is braided around the back which is just gorgeous.

Spring into step

As with many there is much love for Maitreya, everything Beau and Onyx do is always so well planned and executed. There is something really inspiring about this latest release, and didn’t everyone just fall in love with the picks Miabella Foxley took for the adverts, those are amazing.

Spring.....

Ok so my first LOVE LOVE LOVE, is the HighSkirts …anyone that knows me, or reads my blog knows I am all about the System Skirt love, these are beautiful. Not only do you get the wonderful high waisted skirt with the belted top in all layers and all variations- such as resizable and not, but without the belt the skirt is also for me pure heaven.

The last time Maitreya gave me this much system skirt excitement was with the release of the MAiiKI label collaberation with Iki Ikarus of Dutch Touch, so with that in mind I merged some items from the NEW Maitreya with the older MAiiKI, and that is how I ended up dressed for the rest of the day, because YUM.

First off on the outter pics I am wearing the High Skirts with the fabulous Savoir Turtleneck, now these turtlenecks come with options also, you get long and mid length sleeves as well as sheer and solid , the sheer isnt overly but you will need a bra under neath. They are wonderful for mixing and matching, and the colours they come in will have you wanting to create fab looks and colour blends.

Now as much as I love the belts and tops of the HighSkirts by Maitreya , I really love them without the prims too, sleek and smooth these are just fabulous, and when worn with something like the MAiiKI Belted top and the Strapless top – both are from sets, but definitely give you an idea on how much you can do with these skirts.

The hair I am wearing had half the grid trying to tp into Maitreya on release, it is the Piper Hair a lovely loose pony tail.. I really like how its done in a way to show that the hair is loose but structured so well.

All of the skins I am showing today are of course the Gala skins , this time the Breeze as shown in these pics, and the Lovely that will be shown as well. Both skins are part of the latest release from Gala@ Curio and as the last ones, the bodies and faces on these are very beautiful indeed.

The Breeze is a very youthful and innocent looking face, gorgeous full lips and an adorable nose. The lovely has a more serious face, which can take some getting used to, but I think it has such a charming character to it because of that. All three including the Vixen come with the light and dark tones options, which is a great deal having a slight variation in your tone of choice. Two make ups in each, and the freckles as well. The bodies of these skins as I have said and shown in the past is just stunning, so make sure you DEMO DEMO DEMO.

The Shoes I have on in this pic are the Verve heels by Maitreya, these are wonderful for that more sedate but still sexy look.

Adding the Long Scarfs, another New item from Maitreya I was able to really flex my new powers today. The other night Siddean Munro of SLink was telling me about one of our tools we have in advanced that helps when wanting to colour match, I had previously given her the link to colourpicker so it was all relevant lol.
UI
If you go to advanced Menu at the top of your screen – if you don’t see it press ctrl, alt, D all at the same time.

Then Click on UI and scroll down to Show Color Under Cursor…Click on that and the fun can begin.

In the bottom right of your screen you will now see three numbers, in white and tiny so you have to really look for them. They are the RGB numbers for all colours in second life items.

Anything you move your mouse over when this is activated will show you a RGB number.. so then when you open edit on an item and then the tint box you can input those numbers into it as shown.

I had to then use the slider on the side, and add full bright to get the same purple but it was fun and it has so many uses. You do the same moves to turn it back off.

Spring
Spring.
The Crushed Sweater Dresses by Maitreya are snuggly and again beautifully structured, you get options for the skirts of these dresses, one is a fuller sculpted skirt, the other is just the regular micro mini option, both look stunning. These will look great with leggings, or bare legged as shown.

The boots I am wearing are the Billow boots from Maitreya, that coincidentaly match perfectly in colour lol. The Apple hair is a MUST MUST MUST Have for all, whether you are feeling the peace love and mungbeans baby, or you just want to be up with the current trend of everything hippie chic , then whatever reason Apple is for you.

Spring..
Feeling a tad bookwormis, possibly I am up to no good, with the fabulous Thighstrap Mother Book of Shadows by Dark Eden, these are so much fun and come in a variety of books and colours, with potions and earrings and all sorts of wonderful magical stuffs.

The skirt is another New release from Maitreya in the form of the Jules Skirt , a denim skirt that again is sculpted with either a more overall fitted prim, or micro, with seperate belt option. I am wearing the seperate belt and micro option, I really like this upper part to the skirt giving it a really well finished look.

The Mirli sweaters from Maitreya have always been a must have, so soft and delightful, you cannot go past the backs of these sweaters for added rawr. The shoes are the Sassy Wedges in Cherry, so cute and perfect for the Witch in training look I was going for lol. The lovely pinned back at the side hair is Faye from Maitreya and for those that love long and straight this is an incredibly realistic version of that look.

The studious looking Glasses are SMP by booN, really nice frames and very reasonably priced.

Points to my lips on the left and goes OMG OMG OMG it’s blue opal lipstick, every single girl I know in the mid 80’s had that exact lipstick, LOVE LOVE LOVE, it’s part of the Breeze skins line from Gala @ Curio .

Spring...
Spring....

Cleo Skirts by Maitreya are the tighter fit lowrise style we all love, these are an older look denim and the addition of the fabulous Coin belts also from Maitreya makes them very fun to wear.

Do you own the Jam Hoodies, these are again an older item from Maitreya and if you weren’t around when they were released, and somehow managed to not have them yet… do not let yourself down. These are superb , they were on release and they are definitely still now. You get the beautuiful soft sweater with the up or down hoodie option.

Due to the Fashionable Relay Challenge I have been feeling the love for the Slouch Socks these are older than old lol, I even remember the release of these and exactly where Onyx put them at hinode. I am wearing them with the Desert boots by Maitreya, you get the options of laced or unlaced, which is fun to wear both one way or the other, or alternating them.

The Jam Hoodies have seperate hoods sold with hair attached, that was just genius at the time, I felt like a little change and the Mayte hair fit underneath, the shoes are the Frenzy shoes again but this time with the banana heels which are so much fun.

Spring......

Spring........

The Strapless Tops by Maitreya are just fantastic, the sculptie work and shape on these is superb…the draped textures are so pretty and the style just gives such a great look to your wardrobe. The batik print is wonderful for casual days, the colours are lovely and they look great with things such as jeans or with the Cleo skirts.

The fab thing about these tops, isn’t just all the layers option, or the fact that each sculpted top comes in three sizes and is resizable, but there is also an AO version WOOHOO, poses by Maitreya in any form are super fabulous, but an item of clothing with a built in AO is again really thinking about what your customers will need to wear your clothing effectively, YAY Onyx and Beau.

The Satin version are lovely with dress pants, or a long skirt. I am wearing the Wednesday pants from Lelutka with these, the fabric on the tops is so soft looking you just know how it feels against the skin.

The Piper 2 hair is the same loose and pretty style, with no tail and more of a loose bun effect, great as an updo or semi dressy. The Jewerly is the Medallion set by Essentia, and the skin is the Lovely by Gala @ Curio, this is a skin that definitely as I said has character, and you will really want to wear it for a few hours to see it on your shape in all atmospheres.

Lavish me with Kisses

In my time in SL I have experienced Gala moments a few times. Little moments were it was all about Gala . I don’t mean big releases and such, but snippets of conversation, being tp’d to her older sim to give opinions on a make up, and of course many a time fashion emergency went to mentioning Gala toes as being perfection.

I even remember consoling an old customer when she was so distraught that Gala hadn’t released new skins in a while, it’s funny the older you get in SL the more those memories mean, for me a New skin by Gala Phoenix @ Curio is like a pleasant time line that turns into a much louder affair.

This affair will definitely be remembered. The NEW Skin line by Gala @ Curio consists of three beautiful skins, and I am only showing one of them today, the other two I will show soon after.

Vixen

This is the Vixen skin by Gala Phoenix of Gala@Curio , a few things about how this skin has been released.

You have 4 Beautiful skin tones, Acorn , Petal, Moonbeam and Sundust. Each tone comes with 6 make ups in a light/dark option, now at first I thought that was brows, and was really surprised to find out that light and dark was in fact a variation of the

tone.

The other option you have is

freckled which is just beautifully done on these skins, being someone with freckles RL I am not a fan of freckle skins with an abundance of make up, makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.

With these skins the freckles are more across the bridge of the nose and lightly across the body depending on tone of course, but as these come as part of the range, they will come in handy for different looks I am sure.

The other new feature is the light glossy lipstick and then a dramatic coloured gloss option, which makes it easier for those that don’t like to

change skins too much. By having so many options in the one make up pack this is definitely a more bang for your buck kind of dealio, but let me say it again PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us a shaved option.

Vixen.

I know I say this a lot, I know I sound like some kind of maniac about

such a whacko thing, but I want to be able to not stress all the time about what skin I have on , whether or not I can just wear a folder and not end up walking around and finding out that I have been showing parts of what no one should see in public ever.

If all clothing makers suddenly stated that they would all end their clothing at the exact same part of the template as everyone else, then I wouldn’t care, but they don’t so I do :P. I also tend to think that we all – females that is – have different views on that area, and shaved/waxed it all ends the same, but all the other variations are just bizarro world…ok ranting again I know, back to the beautiful Vixen Skins.

Vixen..

I have mentioned the lipstick but not as yet the mouth, it is a beautiful full lipped shape, worthy of the best pouters in sl, and not just any kind of pout but that well practiced one with the upper lip curl. The overall lines to the face, and I don’t mean on the skin as such, but the details that make up the character of Vixen have a beautiful maturity that as a 36 year old I am very glad of.

The Vixen skin by Gala Phoenix of Gala @ Curio ( it’s confusing to me when I hear people call Gala Curio ) has such a wonderful

nose, and the eye make up is captivating. The tones and shading on the body of the skins is just gorgeous and I totally recommend either getting completely nakey or putting on your skimpiest beachwear – at home of course – and really checking out the bodies of these skins.

Vixen...

As you can see in the pics, the overall sheen to the skin is just delightful and sexy as all get out. The shading to the ribcage is really well done, and moves incredibley well with poses, the stomach is very trim and taught but not overly so, and the bum and collarbone is a dream.

Vixen....

One thing I seem to pay more attention to these days is the nails, the french polish on these skins is just gorgeous, and with so many beautiful rich colours in make up and clothing in SL the nails can stay bare and still draw attention when they are as lovely as these.

Vixen is possibly intended to be the sexiest of the new line, but I think all three are, but again as I am only showing Vixen today lets focus on that. Each pic has the two lips stick options, all four tones are shown, some with freckles, most without…and two of the pics are the light variation of the Sundust Frex and Petal.

The make up colours in this first range are an autumn lovers dream, the soft browns, lilacs and rich natural colours are bursting with flavour and richness, the glossy lips are fantastic and over all they are just beautiful, so make sure you DEMO DEMO DEMO them all.

If the store demos aren’t enough to entice you, then join the Gala & Rita Design Announcements Group, right now there is a heavenly pack of skins awaiting your love and affection, as a gift from Gala, so make sure you say thank you ♥.

Vixen.....

Moving on to hair, Here Comes Trouble has done another big release today. One of the styles I am so in love with I had to wear it more than once lol. Dejay is the first soft wavey pony tail, a few loose tendrils and its so sweet.

Fritz is AWESOMETASTICAL!, as a person with wavey hair that can tend to get ultra curly underneath if left to dry naturally this is the hair scrunchers perfect do. This hair is all hair, it’s shortish, medium, going into long, its bed hair, its sexed up hair, its styled and not styled all at once, I LOVE ITTTTTTT.

The next style is the Mally hair, a lovely asymetrical style with very forward bangs, the Sasy hair (loves Babyboo) is a great uppy do, for your formal pleasures, but I am all about the Fritz.

The beautiful lingerie I am wearing in all of the pics is from Popfuzz, the Lace Lingerie set which is the first three pics is the latest release in the Popfuzz Lingerie line and it is gorgeous, we showed some of it last week on Whimsy. Garters, Panties, Bra and stockings…it is all there and on all layers in beautiful lingerie colours.

The Bra and Panties sets in the next two pics, are the perfect basics. You get straps and strapless versions of the bra and in my opinion this set could double as a bikini if needed. Lastly and because of the fantastic red lips in the :GP: Petal [Light] Vixen-Roxy 1 skin I went with the Lace Corset in Red from Popfuzz, I have said it many times, this corset set is brilliant, get one, get them all, you will love them.

All of the shoes in this post are the Nana heels from Enkythings, my favourite Lingerie Shoes in such beautiful fabrics…yummy.

Adam n Eve do Valentines Yummies

Sachi Vixen and Damen Gorilla of Adam n Eve have done an incredible turn around from their regular ‘theme’ items they are known for.

If you haven’t explored Adam n Eve in recent months then you are in for a shock, Sachi has added some definite saucyness to her style of late, and Damen has enhanced that by his incredible workmanship on shoes and accessories.

I happened to be on my way to the store earlier today for a quick look around and got an IM from a wonderful friend *waves to Efe* who wanted to look at some skins, and asked for some suggestions.
I tp’d her to join me, and while I was in the store I was lucky to be in IM with Sachi and mentioned I needed to update my latex that she has done recently- I got all the ‘what about these’ folders and now I don’t actualy know what ended up on the shelves lol-so while Sachi was correcting that for me, she dropped something else on me, and it was INSTANT LOVE!.

Now yes I had planned to strike a pose in latex this evening but there was no way in the world I could not show off this dress, Decollage by Adam n Eve is a stunner, the fabric is just divine and the style overall is beautiful. Plunging back and front which is a favourite for me, especialy when wearing Pandora Skin- Sasy Make-Up :P -also by Sachi which has the most beautiful back detailing.

The dress is LIMITED TIME ONLY! which kind of makes me weep, but the reason being that the wonderful sash and waistband has subtle lovehearts on the print, in keeping with the valentines theme. I personaly want to see her do the same dress without hearts in every colour imaginable, because the fabric is soooooo sexy it caressed my skin and got me all geared up for romance, which is the point, right ?.

What are the other reasons for the love? well let me tell you lol , one thing that just screamed at me was the fact that the pants looked wicked without the prims, and I got a whole other look out of a gown, which is always a bonus in my mind. So a quick change of hair and I was ready for a night of shaking it at some fabulous club somewhere. The other brilliant thing about Adam n Eve is that there are DEMO’s, all the clothing, skins and shoes all have Demo’s so that you can be totaly sure you are going to love what you get.

So whether you have a date for Valentines day or not, this is a Gown-and pants-set- that you will get so much enjoyment out of.
Now speaking of Shoes, and I was*points to the paragraph above* Damen was in the process of completing the matching shoes to these Gowns and I squeeled in his box ‘Gimme Gimme’ -I am so ruuuude I know, but he luvs me, they must, there is a dart board with my pic on it in their studio *giggles*.

But I had to have the matching shoes because Sachi was being naughty and sent me a pic already, so there was me in brown casual shoes running around in a gown waiting for them to be finished, and then they came and wooot.

These VSP shoes will also only be available until the end of Valentines Day, so get thee to the store, all sculpties and divine contrast heels on the deep red version-because of the contrast in the gown also they look fab with either Gown-, and I just adore the mini sculptie heart charm attached to the back.

I needed a new Up-Do for this Gown, just because any reason is a reason for new hair lol, so I popped over to Frangipani , and as I had never been there before I was really impressed with the red pack having such delightful assortments of red in it, Lauren I am wearing in both the Sangria and the Ruby and the style is a lovely side swept bangs style with a nice side loose bun, accentuated by the Grey tipped Black Hair Rose by Essentia.

The second look with the pants needed some hotness so I went with the ORIGINAL Bombshell style by Armidi , I have no idea how this style may or may not have changed, but from what I have seen, either way its still a gorgeous do…. I so have plans to do a post soon on Armidi because I have an interesting theory about the shopping in that sim lol its all good I promise :o).

To finish up this fabulous Valentines or any time look, I opted for the Jet Set Diamonds set by House of Nyla because I have wanted to find a reason to show it off for ages, and what better way than here lol. Nyla Cheeky does some beautiful work with beading both in RL and SL and it shows her love for the craft in her incredible Cloche hats and this stunning Jewelry set.

I love a good choker and beaded ones are just a delight, the matching bracelet is lovely and the fact there is no blinding bling is a bonus, these are just beautiful pieces of jewelry and you can see the detailing on the pieces, the way you should be able to.

So in preparation for the upcoming day of romance, go and take a look at the incredible pieces shown here today and remember DEMOS,DEMOS,DEMOS

xoxox Sasy xoxo

CKS Designs and the Great big Treasure Hunt

Ok so I am back, and I know that a few of you missed me-because I keep hearing about it lol-I have had this blog sitting here for a little while and I was going to wait until I cleaned up my inventory, but then Kit started screaming at me in offlines and it was time to dust off the posestand.

So first post of the year is a new release by CKS Designs, Kit Maitland-Oh how we in our household love her work-The new release is called Hard Candy, and not only is it a fabulous Valentines themed ensemble, BUT! for one day you will have the chance to scoop it up for free.

Some of you may know about the group called “Designers in Seclusion” some of you wont, but its a group of incredibly talented people, info in red.

***Press Release: Immediate
Grid-Wide Treasure Hunt!
Over thirty designers have gotten together to produce a Valentine’s Day Treasure Hunt that will span the grid! Each location will have a gift box hidden inside their store. The boxes will randomly change locations inside the store so you’ll need to stay alert!
The starting location will be HERE!

This will not be open to the public open until 1:00am STL February 9.
The gift boxes will be displayed for you to see, and all instructions will be given at that time! Please read the signs at the location when you arrive, and follow the directions. Then head off across the grid to start your hunt!
The treasure hunt begins at 1:00am SLT February 9 and will continue until 11:00pm SLT February 11

~ *AE* ~ Accessories by Eolande ~ ANIMAH ~ AnnaH ~ Balderdash ~ Bodies by Oh! ~ Boingo ~ Calla ~ Caroline’s Jewelry ~ Cassini Creations ~ CKS Designs ~ DaeSkins ~ Designing Nicky Ree ~ Elite Designs Furniture ~ enkythings ~ First Impressions ~ Hair Solutions ~ Hubby’s Boutique ~ Ingenue ~ Irelyn ~ KessKreations ~ Kitchy/UOMO ~ Moonshine ~ PajamaRama ~ Philotic Energy ~ PrimPlay ~ Reaction ~ Rose Petal Creations ~ SecondWave Apparel ~ She’s So Unusual Shoes ~ SYD: Style Your Destiny ~ Tea Monster Clothing ~ Textures ‘r Us ~ Topaz Square ~ Vitamin Ci ~ Wilted Rose ***

The lovely Kit is one of those generous people I mentioned on my side welcome, and she gave me this set and the one other I am showing today, Hard Candy is a fantastic peachy pink set, with not only the one adorable pair of cute panties but 6 all with the hard candy we all remember from our childhoods featured on the bum.

Be mine, heartbreaker, ILU, Kiss Me, Love Bites, Squeeze Me are the yummy slogans on the panties and hmmm 6 pairs only, me thinks that Kit has made one day panties free day *giggles*- I am so sure all the men in the grid went WOOOHOOO, I know mine has already declared his love for her today.

Reason being is that Kit has this little trick, she makes her little bitty skirts using the jacket layer instead of pants layer like most, which allows for panties to flash and with her sets like this new one and detention an older one its cute and sexy. This set not only comes with that type of skirt and the adorable panties, but also 80’s style anklet socks with ruffles… the adorable sweater comes on undershirt and shirt layers and the heart cut out is just fab, all year round.

What I love especialy besides, EVERYTHING! is the sleeve extenders on this top, made on the gloves layer, great idea and just adds a kind of cosy charm to it. All of the usual fabulous extras are included, like her posestand so you can make any adjustments without fishing around for one, the picture of the set so you dont have to remember everything you own lol, and the incredible Smart Skirt option in a seperate skirt- love that you have the choice without having to fiddle- and of course her notecard describing her ‘Look’ detailing who, what, where how and when for each item that she didn’t create herself.

Now when I ran to wear and saw the colour, I looked at Kits pic to see what shoes she wore with, more out of curiousity than anything else, they were white and I knew immediately what shoes I would wear, because he colour was identical and the shoes had saved me on another occasion when coming across the same pink.

Enkythings Menisa shoes are Enktan Gullys’ first sculptie shoes and they are marvelous, the texture is a soft suede leather look-on my screen anyway lol- with beautiful stacked wood heels that are rich in brown tones, and just look how perfect the pink matches up, so that if you decided to go without socks you are colour co-ordinated to perfection, you can check out the Demos’ in his main store or even grab them using OnRez.

Quick note on OnRez, if you ever want to see if a designer you already know has a store on the site, just use the regular site url and after com/ type in the designers first name _ last name and you will find them much faster :o) .

The hair in the pic is by Here Comes Trouble creator Babyboo Glitterbuck, whos’ hair I just love to bits, I was invited over to her studio in the middle of taking pics and of course Boo was not suprised enough to even ask why I was encased in a prim red ribbon lol. The hair is the wonderful Vesper style in Dirty, which is one of my favourite blondes, and be sure to keep a look out for the incredible hair and other goodies she has got coming soon, I seriously swooned.

Now about my skin, ahhhhhh Minnu Model Skins released the Third Generation Skins recently with the extended face make ups, some slight changes to the eyebrows and some other beautifying details, and as soon as I finaly got a chance to try them on it was instant love.

If you didn’t get the chance to see the incredible movie Minnu Palen made for the release you can view it HERE! and damm if your prone to easy exitability brace yourself, Minnu makes the screen perspire. I am wearing the MMSPale NF -Clean skin in this picture and the soft make up is just perfect for not only this outfit, but for those of us who work in SL and need a softer look for every day, but still want something that can go into evening and still be incredibly sexy.

One of the other make-ups in the extended range is the MMSPaleNF Aero , with its stunning red lips and beautiful eye make up that I am wearing in the next pic, and while I am on the subject of Eyes and MMSkins lol my Green eyes are from there also, Minnu recently updated all her eyes to give them a wetter more natural look, and they are so fab I bought a few colours and yet I only wear green.

This next set by Kit Maitland of CKS Designs is called Wrapped, go figure lol, now this little number is definitely something your valentine is going to enjoy unwrapping.

The incredible ribbon textured top is on all layers- I can so see that becoming this years censor top on occasion-and the red is silky and vibrant, tieing beautifuly at the front in a big yummy bow, the gorgeous sheer red panties are a fuller fit and a delight with their pink and deep red detailing and are a fabulous addition to your lingerie inventory.

Traveling further down I squeeled when not only were these stockings just too cute but they had seams, I adore seamed stockings as I have always worn them in RL in the past when wanting to totaly uplift a look to sextabulous, and not that this set needs that at all but oooo it’s a delight having them and again a great addition to your closet, even though a themed set the pieces in it just keep on giving.

A few weeks ago I stopped by Storm Schmooz and checked out the shoes I had seen blogged so beautifuly by many talented bloggers, it caused instant drooling and I had to grab all the demos because I knew that Mel would want in on the excitement. I actualy got a chance to talk to Storm for a few minutes in IM about some vendor pics being priced for thousands of lindens-yay loved that bug- and he was very charming and easy to talk to.

So when we went back I was treated by Mel to the Laque in Red as shown and the incredible pink you will see in the future, these shoes are divine; not only are they sculptie goodness but the texture is rich and delish, the shape of the shoe is very conservative and when mixed with the colours available in that shiny lacquered look its just hell sexy… kind of like an episode of School Mistresses GO Wild! – I’m sure there is one of those in the making lol.

So when I saw the rich shine to this wonderful Wrapped set, it was a no brainer on what shoes to wear with it. The hair is again by Here Comes Trouble, a wonderful concave cut with vintage style bangs that I love called Evette. Make sure you try on as many incredible Demos when you visit HCT, but also grab the seriously wicked fatpacks she has for 1L at the entrance to the hair section. My all time favourites are Mallory and Saleen of the 1L styles.

Now there are so many things that I ALWAYS use when blogging and doing my everyday things, one thing that you will remember some of you, and those that know me is that I always wear Hair Roses/Jewelry by Essentia. There are 57 of them in total and they are all beautiful and I do hope you stop by Fiachra Lachs’ store and check them and his beautiful Jewelry out.

As that is the case and also the same creators of poses will get mentioned every time I am going to make the bottom of my post one big credit to those creator/designers with their slurls etc, even though there might be a day I don’t use one stores stands in that particular post, I can pretty much guarantee I went through them all to get there, so they deserve appreciation for giving me so many choices.

xoxox Sasy xoxo
