Have I mentioned how much I like the skins from the Shops? Actually, I am pretty sure I have, but it bears repeating. Their faces (this is Pixie, which I already owned in a lighter tone but I ended up needing a somewhat darker one for some photos) really stand out from the jungle of similar-looking skins that are out there today and with the cleavage options now included with each skin the bodies have gotten even better. I absolutely adore the natural cleavage since it works so well with smaller breast sizes and in total there’s six cleavage options, counting the default that is on the skin itself.
Trompe Loeil’s first release of the year is the Dragon & Orchid Home Pub for FaMESHed. It comes in a PG and an Adult version (no, the difference isn’t that the PG version only serves soda) and as usual I went with the latter. And then I had the idea of using the Ice Queen’s Coat from Junbug and, well, very little else…
Today is generally the year’s laziest (or possibly second laziest after January 1st) day for me. There’s nothing more that has to get finished in time for Christmas (we celebrate on the 24th in Sweden) and there’s lots of yummy leftovers. So its all about curling up with a book and puttering about with things like wintry photos in Second Life.
Sometimes, fate puts things together. Sometimes, it takes a little help from the wonderful creations available at the Fantasy Faire.
From one kind of fantasy to another, with a closer look at the re-release of Tuli’s Eva skin, the glove and stocking appliers for Slink’s hands and feet from Adam n Eve and a new hair from Alice Project. Plus a sexy rigged neck corset in leather from Perception and one of the sinfully gorgeous beds from Trompe Loeil, packed full of poses for all sorts of occasions.
No, I wasn’t thinking directly of the sin, but I am not opposed to a bit of sinning. However, it was the lovely vintage vanity from Trompe Loeil at this months FaMESHed that inspired the title and provided the setting for this look at another new skin from Adam n Eve set to debut tomorrow at the Skin Fair.
If you’d like to try something new in SL and get a bunch of cool stuff, then Global Domination by Hottie Cooterati might be for you. Its a game that involves searching for items and solving riddles. Some quite easy, some very hard. I played the game right on the launch night and persistent as I am, it kept me up to 4.30 in the morning as I insisted on trying to finish it all in one go. Of course, there was a race at the time to be among the first three to finish to get one of the grand prizes. I didn’t manage, but I was definitely not disappointed by the prizes available to everyone who completes the game. I also enjoyed the actual game play; the scripting of the HUD that you purchase to participate with is well done and the puzzles were fun and engaging.
This post is a bit of a welcome back to two designers that I’ve been a fan of for a long while; Tuli Asturias of Tuli and Roslin Petion of, most recently, Luxuria. They have both been busy with other things than SL for a good while but Roslin released a gorgeous mesh corset and matching lingerie set for last month’s My Attic event and now Tuli has a beautiful new skin out at this round of The Dressing Room Fusion. Two makeups are available and they are an absolute steal at L$70 each.
Nomine released another massive mesh release a few days ago. This time, Munchflower is using Standard Sizes, so those of you used to those will find the clothing fitting as usual. There’s everything from a sexy slip dress to a business suit, plus a suit for men. My hair is one LeLutka’s brand new fairy tale-themed styles and the cosy fire is from Trompe Loeil’s new Collabor88 release.
I knew I had to get Magika’s Stumble hair as soon as I saw it. I also knew how I wanted to photo it. Nothing too surprising there; a blindfold inevitably leads my thoughts to the gutter. Fortunately, we had bought a gift card at Trompe Loeil at the recent sale, so we headed off to pick up one of the many beds Cory Edo has released lately. And yes, we picked up the adult version. ;) Nothing too raunchy inside, however.
I could really use a nice, relaxing bath right now. For the last two weeks, Ran and I have fought through a massive upgrade of our site and it has been both exhausting and nerve-wracking. This little SL blog may not seem like much, but it happens to share a database and backend with our other site which is just a little big bigger and busier. Still, one of the more problematic aspects of the upgrade turned out to be the images for Otherworldly, so at the moment you won’t see any on the previous posts as we’ll have to add those back in by hand.
But, enough about such woes for now. Remember that bath? I was at least able to take a relaxing (and fun…NSFW images inside) bath in the new Collabor88 release from Trompe Loeil.
