Did anyone go out and celebrate? I know there were lots of venues offering a variety of New Year’s Eve parties. Whether you celebrated in a grand way or a more subdued way, I hope you all had fun, and if you were imbibing alcoholic beverages, I hope you walked home and didn’t risk teleporting in an inebriated state!

I, myself, chose to celebrate the coming of the New Year, at one of my favourite clubs, The Willows Club. You may have read other posts of mine featuring this wonderful club, here, and here. The place was packed out, and for the first time I can remember, in all the years I have been going there, the sim was full and some people were unable to TP in.

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

I had a lovely stroll around the newly designed sim at The Forest Event recently. In keeping with my festive theme. They have turned their sim into a beautiful winter snow scene, with lovely trails to walk along, and, if one was so inclined, one could buy a ticket for the December round of the Event. I went and grabbed my goodies, and then couldn’t resist taking a few pictures along the way.

I started out wearing a new festive outfit from Boudoir, called The Christmas Buffet, a charming table/skirt, laden with Christmas munchies. I believe it also dispenses a hot beverage, but I confess I haven’t tried it. It is in typical Boudoir style, and utterly delightful.

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.

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.

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!

Make Up Make Up Make Up

Oh how I love make up on my Catwa mesh head! I always loved make up, and matching it to my outfits, but now, on mesh heads, everything looks so much better.

Here is a little photo collage I made up of some gorgeous make ups.

Tuppi’s Look:

  • The top two and the bottom left pictures show a gorgeous Madrid Solo set of eyes and lips called Illusion One. There is a pallet of six eye shadows and six lipsticks. The shadows are beautiful iridescent colours, and the lipsticks are gentle pearl tones.
  • The last picture bottom right is a gorgeous eye shadow by Zibska called Iris, which comes in a pallet of 12 bright colours. The lipstick is by Just Magnetized called Crocus Lipstick, and comes in a pallet of  16 beautiful colours, ranging from darks to lights.

One Dress, Three Designers

Dress One, I first saw this awesome little dress at Hilly Haalan‘s store. I was perusing the shelves and my eyes hit upon a plain looking black dress. It was very simple and unassuming, but I instantly feel in love with it. It has a colour change HUD, with 20 colours, you can change the top, belt and skirt. The best part about it, is that it fits a TMP body, and was only $L99. There are so few items made for TMP bodies, my choice of mesh body, that when I do see something for TMP I am highly delighted and will be more inclined to test it out. I do understand how TMP has been selective with giving out their Dev Kits, but come on designers, they are freely available now, so please can you all grab them and get designing. Yes, I have thought, briefly, about getting another mesh body, one that has  more fashion options. I tested one, and yes, the alpha HUD was better, yes, the nails had a choice of lengths, and yes, it was Omega friendly, but I love that I have 10 hand positions, which are all really natural looking, so I really couldn’t bring myself to change. I have had my TMP body from their first inception, and I have suffered the lack of fashion choices ever since. Although, I do find some designers use sizes that work very well for me, and also Fitmesh is everyone’s friend! I don’t think any size is 100% perfect, well, not on my TMP body, but I have a huge selection of body shapes I have made over the years,  to accommodate various designers and their clothes. I have no idea if that is the norm for all mesh body wearers, I seem to be one of the few people that has only the one type of mesh body, and only the one mesh head!  Whether that will change after Project Bento is grid  wide remains to be seen.

Dress Two, was by R.icielli, 20 colours HUD for changing top, belt, and skirt colours. This dress was only $L79, and seemed to have a more leather type texture to it. It too was in a TMP size, so for that price I liked that I had more colours and textures to play with, and, I knew it would look great.

Dress Three, I found because I was looking for a costume to wear to a ‘Cops and Robbers’ theme night. This is a complete outfit, which included, hair with hat, dress, jacket, guns, holsters, hand cuffs, sunglasses, necklace, and boots. It too, was in a TMP size, although the boots were not, but by taking of my feet, I managed to get one of the sizes to work. There were no colour change options on this outfit, it came in Black, Blue or Pink, but it did include two versions of the hair with hat, blonde and black. Again, I recognised the dress style, and so I knew it would look great. This complete package cost $L350. I was really delighted with it, it all went together so well, and the attention to detail was great.

So, one dress, and three designers, and there are probably a few more versions out there somewhere too! I love each one of them, the first two versions each have differing textures and colour HUDs, which gives oodles of choices!
