Today’s Faves – .Shi And Me

I saw this hair by .Shi and just had to have it! I have several of their hairs, and featured a few in my post .Shi.

There are three ways to wear it, version one has a front braid with optional chain, and covers almost half of the face.

Version two also has the front braid with optional chain, but this version shows more of the face, and highlights the delicate strands of hair woven into the braid.

Version three has no front braid and looks very stylish. Of course, there are several colour options to choose from, I couldn’t resist the amazing colours on the Ecaille-Metallic pack. There are five different colour options on the HUD. This blue green ombre is my personal fave.

I teamed the hair with a gorgeous eyeshadow from Arte in a very similar shade, and I did my own tint on a Pink Fuel lipstick.

Goodbye Alice, Hello Kimberly!

Well, I have finally gone and done it! After months of deliberating, demo testing, shape modifying, comparing the final option with my old version, saving up the relevant Lindens, spending them, saving up again… you know the way it is in SL, there is always something that just HAS to be purchased right now. Anyway, I am now happy to introduce the new me, sporting the Catwa Kimberly Bento Head. I have never been one to have a ton of different faces, even on my old classic avatar. I only bought the one Mesh Head, Catwa Alice, and did the same laborious procedure before I purchased her. I thought she was gorgeous, and as near my old ‘me’ as I felt was acceptable. So what did I do with my Bento demo heads? I made them look as near to my Alice as I could, of course! Granted, they are not exactly twins, but, I have achieved a look that I find pleasing and acceptable to me, and that is, after all, the whole point of our avatars here. We tweak them here and there to reach an overall level we find not only acceptable, but hopefully pleasing too.

I am a total Catwa devotee with regards to female Mesh Heads. I have tried several other makes, and there was always some part of the head that just didn’t look right. None of the other heads could match the level of detail put into the animations like Catwa heads. The smiles work, the facial expressions work. I also love the amount of animations that Catwa includes with her heads.

Here are a selection of six of the twenty-four animations that are included with the Catwa Kimberly Bento Head. My personal favourites are the cute winks.

Flowers In Your Hair

I came across this beautiful floral headdress by Bauhaus Movement, in my vast, as yet uncategorised, inventory. I decided to team it with a very cute Boho style off-shoulder dress by G-Field.

Love And Hearts

February seems to be the month when Love and Hearts explode all over the fashion scene here in SL. I found some more goodies to share with you all. First up is this cute little dress by [Aleutia]. It comes with a 30 textures HUD, and I chose the hot pink version today. I teamed it with some fabulous heels from ArisAris.

Loving Lollipops!

This is such a cute hair I just had to show you all. It is another one of my Doe gacha finds.

021517 Lollipops_001T.jpg

It is called Lolli, and there is an extra item to collect – the two lollipops! I had to have them! The hair comes in various colour HUD choices, and if you get the lollipops the pack contains the two for the hair, and a single one for the mouth. They have a colour change HUD and also come with a cellophane wrapper on/off option. I chose to have the wrapper on.

I Think I Found Something For Everyone!

The last few weeks have seen me gathering a fantastic stash of great make ups,  maybe I just noticed more of it at the various vendors?

1.010517 alaska GalaEyesT.jpg

Here are some very pretty festive eyeshadows. These are by alaskametro, from a recent gacha. There are three sets in this Gala collection, from the top down, set 1, set 2, and set 3 (rare). I would love to say I have a favourite one, but I can’t. I think at a quick glance I loved the red 3 colour version in the middle, but seriously, when you try these on, you will quickly see how the depth of colours and details really do shine through. I thought the red and green from set 2 were a great choice for the typical Christmas red and green outfits.

I first started using alaskametro make ups with my standard SL body, and they were the first brand I went to when I got my Catwa Mesh Head. In fact, I didn’t realise that one of the make ups I already had was Catwa or Omega compatible, back in the days when I had no idea what mesh heads were, and thought that Catwa only made great hairs! Check out more pics here, and here.

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas – Part One

(because there is too much to cover in just one post!)

I do love all the festive fun and decor at this time of year! Snow everywhere, gifts abound, and fabulous Winter themed sims to explore. One such place was recommended by Strawberry Singh in her blog video – Firestorm with Bento Officially Released!  It is a stunning sim called – Let It Snow . Do go and check it out, there is a cute little village area, complete with red British Post Box and Phone Box!  I found a sleigh, filled with toys, and several white deer dotted about, and a gorgeous glass palace, or ballroom, or wedding venue, call it what you will. It reminded me of the British Crystal Palace as it may have looked many years ago. It is a stunning build by Boudoir, check out their Marketplace here  They say it is “created upon famous Palacio de Cristal from Madrid”.

I stopped for a glass of mulled wine, sitting in the gorgeous Crystal Palace

Look at the details on this huge Christmas tree, and my Snowman Sweater Dress looks perfect. It is my fave Christmas outfit this year. So many different designs in the HUD, and the shirt also has a hide function.

The Eyes Have It

I had been thinking about buying the new Catwa Mesh Eyes for quite some time, and finally decided to take the plunge and go for it, or rather, them. As with any mesh eyes, trying to fit them can be time consuming, but perseverance pays off. The eyes come with a texture HUD full of a great selection of colours and styles, including cats eyes, or are they demon eyes? If you don’t like any of the supplied textures you can always buy your own preferred ones, or, if you are so inclined, you could use the Dev Kit, that Catwa has also included in the pack, and have a go at making your own. My one (and only) complaint about these eyes is that the shading around the edge of the eye is too dark. It is a dark brown and it can make the eyes look like they are set too far back in the head. This is just my personal opinion, I am not a designer, I do not make eyes, and I don’t profess to be an expert in what eyes ‘should’ look like. That said, there were some lovely textures included, but I felt compelled to go look for ‘the exact texture’, whatever that was going to be. I had an idea of a two tone blue, so, my quest began! Several hundreds of Lindens later, I think I found ‘the’ one. I still feel compelled to look, and buy, more options, but my current ‘the one’ is a DeeTalez bicolor gold/blue one, from their Hypnotic range. I think they are stunning, and love the colouring.

Tuppi’s Look:

  • Mesh Head: Catwa, Alice
  • Skin: DeeTalez, Evelyn European
  • Mesh Eyes: Catwa; Applier: DeeTalez, Hypnotic bc Gold/Blue 
  • Hair: [monso] My Hair, Crowe; Hair Base: Just Magnetized, Basic set 03
  • Make Up: SlackGirl, Dana Shadow

 

My other choice, and a very close second, is the WOW Skins Mediterraneo set. Again, my fave choice is another bicolour blue one, and the textures are also very good.

  • Skin: DeeTalez, Evelyn European
  • Mesh Eyes: Catwa; Applier: WOW Skins, Mediterraneo bc Blue
  • Hair: [monso] My Hair, Crowe; Hair Base: Just Magnetized, Basic set 03
  • Make Up: alaskametro, Jewel Eyeshadows

 

If you decide to take the plunge into Mesh Eyes I hope you find your own personal fave, and maybe have a go at trying out your own versions? You could always do a copy of your own eyes, and be truly unique! Whatever you decide, have fun experimenting and feel free to share your views and tips in the comments!

All That Glitters and Jewel Colours

Today’s Faves – Glitter!

I am having a fun time with new make up right now, and this is one of my faves. The lashes are from a set by Shiny Stuffs called Glitter Glam. It is a palette of seven Glitter Eyeshadows, ten Glitter Lipsticks, and seven Glitter Lashes,the bottom lashes are plain black. The multi coloured, blue, aqua and pink, lashes are my current faves. I love the multicolored look, and they were the perfect match for the new eyeshadow set from SlackGirl called Augusta. This set comes in eight different colourways, all of them are equally stunning. I have used another of Shiny Stuffs sets for the lips, I chose a bright pink from their Ethereal Romance collection.

You can see more in depth coverage of these collections on my Make Up post – All That Glitters and Jewel Colours here.
