Byrd Island

Hello from Byrd Island! There are lots of birds here….

Byrd Island

Isn’t this hairstyle from Exile just gorgeous? This is the Liaison hairstyle released at Collabor88’s birthday round. I absolutely love the color-changing beads that comes with it (necklace not worn). I was playing around with the different hair colored HUDs when I noticed that the unicorn hair colors are part of Exile’s hair packs! I don’t know what the official name for this hair texture is, but let’s just call it unicorn. Let’s pretend I noticed this before, cos I just asked Kavar when this became official and he told me AGES AGO, and instantly unfriended me for not noticing. JK.

When you’re feeling cheerful, or need some extra cheer, wear every hair color at once! This is the Fantasy 2 color HUD.

Alt, New brand by Truth

Run it

Alt by Truth is the newest clothing brand from Truth Hawks. If you have been on the grid for a million years, you’ll know that Truth was an apparel brand before it became a hair super store. I was apprehensive about blogging Alt clothing cos I didn’t own The Mesh Project (TMP) or Belleza body, but I decided to give it a try.

A long time ago, when The Mesh Project launched their free body (doesn’t include an alpha HUD or appliers capability), my friend urged me to try it out. I tried it on once, then forgot all about it cos nobody on the grid made clothing, skins, or shoes for TMP. I really wanted to splurge $5,000L on the TMP body, cos it has all the feature I want, but I remembered that I really loathe their shopping system. I couldn’t just teleport to the sim to buy it, I had to wear their shopping HUD, deposit money, then I can shop. WHY? I did this once before to buy a mesh head, but I loathed the experience so much that I don’t think I will do it again.

Anyway, back to Alt clothing! I wore it with the Maitreya Lara body for these photos, but I did try the clothing on the SLink Physique body too. As expected, the clothing did not fit either body, cos it is made for TMP and/or Belleza. I  photoshopped these pics, cos I love the texture on this Flex Legging & Flex Bra outfit! The leggings include a color change HUD, which is fabulous.

The decision to release these on TMP and Belleza is intriguing; since I feel that Maitreya and SLink are the most popular bodies on the grid. I don’t have any facts to back this up, just my observation cos almost everything clothing item that I have bought this year is for SLink/Maitreya.

Run it

Do you guys think I should splurge on the TMP body? If you own a TMP body, how easy is it to find clothing and shoes to fit the body?

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Cerys
Alt by Truth – Flex Bra, Flex Leggings
Ingenue – Luzy Heels (Golden)

I just went to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair early to check out the skins and mesh body parts offered, and I haven’t decided on anything new yet. If you want to go before the fair opens to the public on August 1st, join the Mesh Body Addicts group in-world (it’s free to join). I thought the fair was a good size with just two sims, and a very open layout. Easy to navigate.  I didn’t like that some brands seemed to rez old items and didn’t clearly label what items were new and/or exclusive to the fair. Keep it simple!

I found Goji at the fair; this is a brand that I wanted to check out since its launch earlier this year. This is a more kawaii brand from the same team that is behind ColdLogic. How talented is Damien Fate? He has more brands than I can remember at the moment, and all of them are different. I recently blogged about FateLashes, which I am still wearing daily!

The only thing I bought at this fair is the new Smarties Frills dress from Goji. This is a fair exclusive, and it is so inexpensive! For $190L, the dress includes a 4 color HUD with buttons to turn the front and back bows on/off, and a shine option. Here’s a map of the MBA fair, so you can find all of your favorite brands faster.

Reminder, today is the last day of Hair Fair! I am wearing a hair from Elikatira; a brand I haven’t worn in ages cos I thought the brand became inactive. I guess it’s back? This is your last chance to buy hair with some of the proceeds going to charity.

What I’m Wearing:

Elikatira – Haley
Goji – Smartie Frills
The Secret Store – Becky T-Strap Heels (Milk)

Mesh Heads; LeLutka / LOGOLeLutka – Stella & Karin | LOGO – Alex

I’m playing with two of my favorite mesh heads brands today; LeLutka and LOGO. No matter which head I wear, I always try to find the skin & makeup that feels like me. There are no perfect or best mesh heads, but I have a feeling that innovative creators in SL will always surprise us with better products.

Lara Hurley just released the Cindy applier for LeLutka, so I tried it on two different LeLutka heads. The skin applier is made for Stella specifically, but I think it works very nicely with Karin too. By using the same skin brand across multiple mesh heads, I am able to create similar looks so it still feels like me. I found it easy to layer makeups from different brands to further customize the look. I am wearing a Pink Fuel lipstick applier on the LOGO head; it is from the Kiyomi skin for LOGO.

Do you guys change mesh heads often? When you do, do you also change skin brands or stick to your favorites? Let me know in the comments!]
