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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 â™¥.
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.
