Hello from Baja Bay! I know everyone on the grid is already rushing towards Christmas, but let’s dial it back and enjoy the last few days of November. I am at the gorgeous Baja Bay beach sim enjoying the breeze and using it as the perfect backdrop for today’s photos.
Have you seen this Kira Kira Shirt by Katat0nik and White Crow? It’s adorable, love at first sight! It inspired me to change my hair color today to match the anime drawing and pastel colors. I’m alternating between cute and classic styles lately, since both appeal to me.
I can’t stop playing with expressions! Being able to do expressions effortlessly have been such a huge desire of mine for years. I have used various HUDs available to play with the default SL emotes, but they pale in comparison to what mesh heads can do. I want my avatar’s face to reflect the mood in the photos, so I will try to use appropriate expressions whenever I can!
What I’m Wearing:
LOGO ALex Mesh Head
LeLutka – Cat Hair (FitB)
Katat0nik & White Crow – Kira Kira Shirt (Yellow)
Teefy – Hana Skirt (Mint)
The Secret Store – Flamel Boots (Mint)
Listen, I didn’t get invited to take part of that cool sale on Marketplace with special vendors, and you probably didn’t either. I don’t care. I can make my own sale, you know? Bring the chips and salsa to my own party.
So what do I have? TWELVE DAYS OF MAKEUP.
I put makeup on sale, every single frikkin’ day, for twelve days, and each day that makeup’s 50L. That’s it. BAM isn’t that amazing? Since I started this a little late, these three packs of makeup are on sale for 50L each for both Friday AND Saturday, and plus there’ll be one more makeup pack on sale tomorrow.
I will announce each pack of makeup on Juicybomb until the sale is done. When a makeup goes on sale, grab it then, because there’s only one sale per day! Early bird gets the worm.
All makeup will contain Omega appliers and system tattoos. Good for those of you who just bought those Logo heads, right? Right!
TP to my mainstore to grab the first three packs of makeup. Happy shopping!
‘Tis the season for free updates! LOGO Chloe v5 update is available and it is fabulous! I have always loved this face and default skin, no applier needed to wear it right out of the box. Of course, you can wear the skin applier of your choice, but I find the default skin very pretty and haven’t found anything that comes this close.
When I first introduced Chloe on my blog and wore it regularly on my blog posts, a lot of readers commented that the face resembled Gogo’s usual SL face, and I would have to agree! I feel ‘me’ in this head, it’s very youthful and the skin just radiates!
Are you as excited by free updates as I am?
What I’m Wearing:
LOGO Chloe v5
Truth Hair – Focus
Teefy – Oversized Cozy Scarf (Plaid)
If you’re like me, you don’t want your SL too perfect. A slight feeling of quirkyness to your online experience is more your style.
So what do you get the girl who wants her virtual world a bit artsy and hand-drawn? Why, the new Gemini skin from [ a.e.meth ], of course!
The Gemini skin set from [ a.e.meth ] comes with four system skin shades, PLUS an Omega applier hud. All Omega-friendly heads and bodies will be able to wear this skin.
Please try the demo before buying! You can purchase the full package here or at the mainstore for 250L.
A note: The Gemini skin [edit: we tested it on Catwa and it LOOKS GREAT]. It looks amazing on Lelutka but I haven’t received their dev kit yet (they’re slow to distribute and god knows if I’ll even get picked) It favors Logo heads and looks good on Slink.
I will begin porting this skin to the Kemono bodies next. If you wear another mesh head and want me to try and make an applier for that, please let me know in the comments!
Lipsticks and makeup coming up for all heads now. Thanks!
Did you know that mesh heads have been around for three years? I blogged about the first LOGO Infinity Chloe mesh head back in November 2012. I’m not surprised that they’ve been around for this long, yet residents were slow to embrace mesh heads due to a number of factors. Prior to the introduction of mesh bodies, appliers for skin were only available for individual body parts. The mesh heads that were available, did not offer kits for skin designers to create appliers, so it lacked mass appeal. With the availability of skin appliers, I started seeing more residents embrace them and the coverage for all things mesh body and mesh heads expanded.
I embrace mesh heads from brands that delivered pretty faces, yet I find myself always going back to my default SL face. I was able to make the mesh heads ‘me’ but the novelty wore off once I felt that my avatar and photos were indistinguishable from dozens of others in SL. The latest LOGO Alex v3.0 update delivers so much customization (OMEGA tattoo makeups!), that I feel will benefit mesh heads wearers and help set these doll faces apart. You should read about all the new updates, there are too many new awesome features to mention.
I predict that within a year or two, there will be so many mesh heads (and skin appliers) that it will be impossible to tell that someone is wearing a mesh head, or which brand it came from. For me, the thing that will put one mesh head above another is the efficient scripting and beautiful expressive emotions. My favorite head is from LOGO, due to the dozens of different combinations of expressions that I can create by mixing and matching the eyes and mouth. Other mesh heads have nice features too, but for me, LOGO is definitely the most fun to wear.
For this review, I am wearing the Aria skin applier by Lara Hurley. I haven’t worn Lara skins in a very long time, but mesh heads have definitely gotten me to try brands that I don’t normally wear. I’ve observed that with the recent interest in mesh heads, lots of older skin brands have seen a revived interest in their skins.
For some reason, I wrote a novel today, so let’s end this post with a question that I have for you guys. Do you have a favorite mesh head and skin combination? Let me know in the comments and I will check it out!
What I’m Wearing:
LOGO Alex v3 (mesh head)
Lara Hurley – Aria (Pale) skin applier
Truth Hair – Amoret
Tres Blah – Cropped Sweatshirt (White)
