#397 ZsaZsa in the Mist

Post #397

Today's post began with this amazing jewelry set by Zuri Rayna accompanied by a notecard suggesting a step into the fantasy world.  I enjoy a challenge and fantasy is a genre I always really enjoy playing with, but don't do enough of, so this challenge was one I really liked.  The Mist Elite set from Zuri is absolutely stunning, very detailed, and allows you to customise every part independently - I chose black pearls and white opals on gold for this look.

adore the new Elikatira hair with a vintage vibe which is available at the latest round of Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Unusually for me I have gone for the whites palette, and found this beautiful white with a faint hint of blue, the wonderfully named raindrop.

My gorgeous skin is from Lumae, as are my ears - Lumiya is very generous with her appliers and they are included in the pack.  My gown is from Tashi is available at the current round of The Instruments, and feels very elegant with the train flowing down the back - it comes with a hud allowing 6 colour choices.

#396 The lazy avatar's guide to effortless dressing

Post #396

My post is so titled because my whole outfit today comes with texture change huds - so wear 'em, click 'em, and everyone will think you just pulled your outfit straight out of the laundry pile, freshly washed and ironed (does anyone still iron these days?).

Today I am sharing some newness and also some go-to items from my inventory.  I don't wear brown much in sl (and never irl - it reminds me of my yucky school uniform), but I think maybe my state of mind irl led me to darker colours (it would have been my mum's birthday last week, and yesterday was five months since she passed away, and I struggle at times to deal with it), but I didn't want to do black, so brown won.  

This cute skirt from DE Designs comes in leather (worn here), plaid and fabric. It is available in single colours with which you get a hud allowing you to change the texture of the band and hardware, or fatpacks operated by hud.  You will receive skirts rigged for Belleza Venus, Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, classic avatar fitted, and standard mesh sizes.  

My top from Just Because fits perfectly and is of course beautifully made - it comes in a large selection of colours from brights to darks to neutrals, and can be bought singly or in a fat pack, and comes rigged for Belleza Venus Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and classic avatar standard sizing.

My jacket from Lapointe & Bastchild is an oldie but a goodie, and of course texture change - I love the distressed leather texture which makes it look very real, particularly in this colour.

Post #396

I am wearing another set of jewellery by Indulge Temptation, a new-to-me designer, and who I featured for the first time in an earlier post here, wearing a different set of this design.  I am really loving both the design and texture change options in their jewellery and will definitely be looking out for more from them.

My boots from Glamistry are a work of pixel art as you would expect from him - and as always come with his ingenious hud system which allows you to add new colours from your living room (or anywhere in sl for that matter).  You will only ever have one pair of shoes in your inventory - and even better, each new colour is added to the "pool" from which you can customise your footwear.

Elikatira have the gorgeous new Yumiko hair pictured above in a new selection of colours called "Exclusives", available only for today's Fifty Linden Friday.  Elika will release Exclusive packs only for special things like gifts and events, so after today you will never be able to purchase Yumiko in this pack again.

#394 Bella Poses Prettily


Post #394

I have lots of lovely newness to show you today so will work from the head down.  My hair is a new release from Exile at the Hair Fair.  To be honest, I wasn't all that keen on the demo but I have a thing about messy updos so I took a chance - I am so glad I did, I love it now and am sure it will appear again on this blog.

My skin is new from PXL for The Wayward Carnival - it comes in pale and natural tones, both with new make-ups for the lovely Shara skin. Each skin pack contains dark, light, medium and no brow skins, 3 freckle tattoos, 3 mole tattoos, 2 cleavage tattoos (2 options), 3 lip gloss tattoos, nail eraser on a glove, SweetLips appliers.  I have added a lip colour simply because the lips on the skin were lovely, but didn't work with this outfit.

Post #394

Also new is the PXL body freckles applier which includes 3 different tones giving the ability to match with any skin.  You get 2 densities of freckles and 2 transparencies. The appliers work with the latest mesh bodies from Maitreya, Belleza & Slink and are compatible with all skins on SL.  This hud is available at the PXL store for the MIX event.


Post #394

My cute dresses from Somnia are also for Mix and are only 200L for each color set - dark or light.  they come with a hud allowing you to change the dress, belt fabric, laces and hardware separately.  I am showing the darks above and the lights below.  They are cross compatible so you can mix and match.  Although not specifically rigged for Maitreya Lara, it was easy to get them to fit with a few alpha cuts.  I know I will wear this a lot, it is so easy to wear and has a light and fresh feeling to it - even the darks!

Post #394

My cute flatties are a recent release from KC Couture and come with their fantastic texture change hud allowing you to change independently the textures for main, cord, stars, 3 separate jewels, insole and sole. They come fitted for Maitreya, Eve, Belleza and Slink. 

And finally, my mani/pedi is from Wicked Peach who have just moved to a new location, and I recommend a visit, they have some fabulous make-up and they are well worth a visit. One of the things that made this little blogger very happy is that their nail appliers include not only Slink appliers but Belleza and Maitreya too.  I am including their advert below because you can't really see them in my pics.
