AnotherFundraiserIIposter

It has been a funny week this week, so much going on in the land of the Avatar, but there has also been more of a worker bee buzzzzzz, silent but building as people from all over are doing their thing. That’s how it seems to me anyway…I know we have been working hard on Hair Fair stuff, and Another Fundraiser is ending on the weekend, Project Fur is about to begin and Pacific Crisis Fundraiser is on until the tenth.

The skin I am wearing today is one of the Another Fundraiser II skins, this one was donated by Fishy Strawberry and is her own skin base combined with some highlights from the Sezmra skin. Not only did Fishy Strawberry do this skin for 50L at Another Fundraiser II, but also a pack of make ups as add ons that are just amazing.

Another contributor to Another Fundraiser II is Stellar, and while setting up her skins I was totally perving on the new skirts Lexi recently released, they are booty fabulous, and the plaid print comes in a great range of colours. The fact that the colours also went so well with the New Fringe Cowgirl boots from J’s was just a bonus. I haven’t been able to take these boots off since their release, they are so fantastic, and the fringing is amazing, flexi prims are not an easy task, but to get them to move in such a great way on shoes is a huge undertaking.

The leather work on these boots is just wonderful and the colours you are used to from J’s are all there, I especially like the squared off pointed toe look in these boots, very true to the style. subtle but there.Gawk released these really adorable baggy sweaters, I love a good cropped sweater, it allows for some fun layering, or to show off some of the incredible work our skin makers do on the mid section. This one is really cute because of the sculpties giving it a look that says “I could pull this down to cover up more, but I am not gonna”.

Another firm favourite in latest releases is the Follow hair from Elikatira, this style is a long hair lovers dream, but with the beautiful behind the shoulders draping that allows all avatar sizes to enjoy it, it is really simple in style but so very pretty. You can even try the demos on in the luxury of your own home, due to Elikatira being on Marketplace .

New hair, New hair, such a fun way to start any day…reminder that Hair Fair is coming July 2nd to 15th so stay tuned for more info on that.

The five beautiful styles of hair I am wearing today are the latest from LeLutka, they are such different and yet believable styles, that you would think one could become another with the help of some good product. The other exciting thing about them though is that they have ROOTS! darker texturing done at the top of the hair to show a more natural look, you can see it in the demos, and it is divine.

I had some fun styling the looks to go with the hair, a little bit of country, my church going school marm look which had me in fits and terrorising Whimsy and Newdoll, my girl on the go look, followed up with night time fun and end of weekend beach look. I love having fun this way, it is what makes Second Life Fashion so incredible, and blogging so awesome.

Three of the backgrounds came from the Second Life Stock Images Group, I am so addicted to using them now and making more, you should definitely try it.

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.

Bring on the Mod Squad, seriously that is how I felt as soon as I layed eyes on this beauty.

The latest Belle dress from Elate is just marvelous darlings, and what better way to show off your sexy legs, than with knee high boots, an expanse of skin and this beautiful retro fashion. The fun thing about the dress is it’s ability to look both casual and fun, or sleek and dressy, it will all depend on the accessories, boots/shoes and how you flick your hair.

Speaking of flicks – see how I lead you right there – the new styles from Exile are scrumptious. The Nyx hair is amazing and Lake I really would love to have in a hat hair combo. Kavar as I have said before, really levels up each and every time he releases.

I could see wearing any of the colours of this dress, to christmas parties and the festive activites bound to occur over the coming weeks, the colours and style are perfect for it.

I made another backdrop background in PS for this post, and am adding it to the Flickr Group Second Life Stock Images, so I hope someone finds good use for it :).

New New Newness. New shoes are always fabulous, and even better when it is new boots.

I was so excited to find out that J’s has released a brand new boot style, very nordic with the fabulous knit socks, but it is the clog style boots that are just divine. Perfect leather, and wonderful leather colours as usual. there is a non knit option in the scripted menu, which means if the nordic socks aren’t your thing, then you can wear your own, or without.

Still doing that mix of looks, what with it being hot down here, and all the clothing being released is for colder weather, but luckily there are still adorable little skirts that have been created in heavier fabrics, but short in length enough to still show off the gams. I love these porcelain skirts, so sexy and cute, yay fishy strawberry. I am wearing the Jane aviator jacket again, but this time without the lower sculpted portion, because the finish to this jacket is superb, like woah, so it is totally a jacket on its own. The L’opera bodysuit is a must have item, also from Fishy Strawberry, plunging back, high front with shoulder pads to boot.

I am wearing another of the latest YS & YS Skins, this time Regina, and I opted for a freckles tattoo from one of the other skins, that actually works so well no matter the tone. Great idea to copy and paste all your tattoo layers that come with other skins, and bundle them all into one, spend some time playing around with them and see if they are interchangable and then folder them into ones that are, and ones that aren’t. Much easier than having to find them when you think of them.

This waif shit has to go…Quote by Whimsy Winx

WInter Poca

HushYs
What is the reason for the name of the post you ask, well it was kind of a discussion about the shapes that some designers choose to use as their own. Then building their items on their shapes, and if the items are no mod, then resizing scripts make the item bigger all over, when sometimes it is only a small stretch in one direction that is needed, thus ruining the aesthetic of the whole outfit. Many designers do take that into account by providing more than one size, but in reality it would be nice if the designers considered more the shapes of the people, and had a builders shape so to speak, much like hair makers have always kind of adhered to the one size concept, and shoe makers as well. But then again, we would prefer mod, not scripted in the first place.

It is kind of funny, because with the teen grid merger only a month away, the sizes of residents are going to apparently drastically change. I remember talking to Asuka Martin, the owner of Dernier Cri about that once a long time ago, and she said that one of the first things she noticed was the insane heights of us over here on the adult grid. I for one am tall RL, so have argued to keep my height as it is, because I am not amazon in stature. But I have definitely noticed that many are shrinking down over the past 12 months, which kind of makes me wonder where that will leave the tinies and kids…do they even have kids and tinies in the teen grid? It is going to be an amazing transformation grid wise, and I for one cannot wait…I only have one wish and it might seem silly to most, but I kind of wish that kids couldn’t talk in IM. I wish that was a safety measure that LL would put in place, I know that keeping them to PG and all that are good steps, but they are pretty much only saving them from visual adult content. Anyway, this post wasn’t supposed to go off on some rant from sizes to mergers, I think it was the redbull.

I love that with the help of layering, and of course all the fabulous extra layer options we have now, that you can still make fabulous use of dresses that may have been designed with warmer climates in mind, but add some wool tights and an incredible faux fur coat, and you are in winter wonderland. I am feeling so much love for cowboy boots lately, and tonights episode of Hellcats didn’t help. The fringing on the ones from J’s is a nice soft touch. The jacket is from Aoharu, and you can wear it long or short, I opted for short so you could see more of the great Hush dress from SySy’s.

Yes as corny as I am, even I didn’t realise until after the pics were done, that my skin is from YS&YS, and my dress is from SySy’s. The skin is Sierra and as usual, all the great options and incredible make ups, they really have come back with a bang, and hopefully a much needed break.

Your Mumma wears army boots

I watched an incredible movie the other day, the idea was that you got to know exactly when you would fall in love with your soul mate. The movie is called timer, and you would think it would be straight forward and all that, but it was amazing the different things that could go wrong, or right as the case may be. What would it change in you ? the idea of knowing that something had a timer on it, wealth, happiness, love…would you be reckless until then? would you be a lazy moo and do nothing lol. All interesting thoughts really, fun film, you should watch it if you see it around.

Speaking of movies, Whimsy and I went to the unveiling of Harbinger last night, it is the latest movie by Phaylen Fairchild, and it is a totally different direction than Divas. This movie was scary, unfortunatly since last night it has gone private on YouTube, but probably just for some last minute editing. So you should look it up when you have a moment and want to be scared out of your wits.

Anyway, on to not scary things. The new boots by Gos are GTFO. These boots are great hiking style boots, with wonderful texturing features, as all Gos items have. This time though it will only be the fat packs that allow for combination changes, otherwise it’s a set look per colour combo. They were a perfect accompaniement to the latest items from Royal Blue, have you seen the new Royal Blue store? it is fabulous, a floating flagship in the sky, you really need to check it out, especially if you have been wanting some of her older items from her leLutka range, as they are all now in her outlet section.

I am wearing her What’s Up Spock leggings ( Marni has the best names for things) with some upper items from Aoharu, the off the shoulder top is just divine, and the simple leather jacket is going to get lots of wear in the future, it is stunning work texture and sculpty wise. The beautiful bag I am wearing on the left is a latest release from Ondyra Originals, the Marina Shoulder tote, such lush colours these come in, and the weave is great, they come with three options for wear, and the colours go with the shoes and clothing also recently released.

In the second pic I am wearing the latest Lounger sets from Fri.day, so fun and comfy, so much so that I went shopping in the sage and even then onto the movie premier in it last night lol. They all come in matchy matchy colours and prints, but you can of course mix and match like I did. The colours are also lovely for extenders under even shorter tops, as they come on all layers. After the movie I had a great time on the “Reap the Wild Wind bookpile’ created by W.Winx (which is of course Whimsy ) this build is amazing fun, and brings you back to those days home sick from school, when you could turn your imagination into the most wonderful of adventures.

You will of course have noticed all the beautiful hair I am wearing in this post, it is all by Elikatira (previously ETD) the styles are just beautiful, and luxurious in texture, I would be so hard pressed to find a favourite, I know that one in particular has been seen sported by many, but I would have to say Vivid the bottom right in the grey is just divine, It has everything and more you can want in a hairstyle….so beautiful.

Which brings me to the last pic, all of this of course wrapping itself around the divine pale version of Mima by LAQ. This skin was released just moments before Halloween, and I didn’t have a chance to show it then, but I don’t think it should only be considered as such, as it has such wonderful make ups, and only two of the skins comes with blood, which can be used for art, machinema, halloween, costumes, or RP, whatever works for you. The tone is beautiful and I decided to bring out the adorable dress by Rotten Toe to do it justice, as well as The Corrector neck corset, that seemed to fit right in.

To even out the visual I went with the latest wings by Material Squirrel, these are so amazing, that Kala has gone on to create in sculpted form, what she has always done with prims, is a testament to the passion and education that Second Life inspires amongst its residents.

Enjoy your day, and if you haven’t already read the High Res Myth post that Mel did earlier today, you need to. HERE
