Today several amazing things happened. First, I became a rock star. Second, Pink Fuel released the most gorgeous Liya skin, but it is for the Catwa mesh head only. Third, I bought a Catwa head for the sole purpose of blogging the Liya skin. These things don’t usually happen all in the same day, since I’m usually not that social nor do I change my entire look on a whim.
I didn’t plan on buying any mesh heads since Project Bento is right around the corner. If you don’t know what that is, Project Bento will allow certain mesh heads to be editable (like default SL shapes). I don’t know much about it, but that’s the feature I’m most excited about.
Chances are good that if Pink Fuel creates something, I will blog it. I’m just not a huge fan of Catwa mesh heads, since I never found any skins I liked on it. I decided to give it a try today cos I wanted to wear the Liya skin, and I must say there are lots of products on Marketplace for Catwa. If you already own a Catwa head, I highly recommend the Liya skin from Pink Fuel. If you’re like me and tend to buy things just to blog then never wear them again, maybe wait for a Project Bento release so it’s editable.
The Liya skin includes a HUD with so many options!
Did you guys click on the link above to read Sasy’s blog post? Read it if you’re a blogger. Sasy proposed that when bloggers post about any brand’s item, go to that brand’s flickr/social media post pages and share your link! This type of cross-promotion can only help drive sales for the brand when their own customers see it in use by many bloggers with different style ideas and photography styles. I am on board with this cross-promotion idea, so I will start sharing my links when I blog any products.

What do you think of when an item is called system (ex: system skin, system shoes)? In Second Life fashion terms, it can mean basic and dated. I have noticed that some skin brands have decided to call non-mesh head skins classic skins instead of system skins. This is a brilliant way to distinguish between mesh and non-mesh, without saying one type is better than the other. Classic is good, desirable, and timeless. I like that some brands still offer classic skins alongside skin appliers.
Pink Fuel just released two new classic skins called Mori and Morgana. Mori is an entirely new face, and Morgana is a classic skin release of the previously released Morgana mesh head appliers. I like Morgana on my shape, cos I can tweak it my way and make the face work for me.
Both skins comes with eyeshadows, lipsticks, blush, freckles, additional button nose, and a separate HUD with appliers for mesh mouths. I haven’t found a mesh mouth that I like, but this is a wonderful addition for people who use them in photos.
Do you still wear classic skins? Even though I wear mesh heads a lot cos they’re shiny and new, I like to keep my classic avatar updated with all the latest items since I know that it’s uniquely me.
What I’m Wearing:
Pink Fuel – Mori | Morgana skins (Peach)

The Secret Store – Olivia Lacey Blouse (Pure)
If you don’t fall in love with a mesh head right away, keep trying it with NEW skins. Today I am revisiting the LeLutka Stella face and pairing it with the Cerise skin from Lara Hurley Skin. I tried this skin on with all the LeLutka mesh heads, and found that it looks best on Stella and Karin. The lips fit best on these two faces, and they don’t stretch or warp.
Recently I previewed the upcoming skin fair, and found so many skin appliers. There’s truly something for everyone! I want to expand beyond my favorites to find new favorites, but I won’t compromise my taste. I like youthful skins with smooth and bright skin tones and subtle makeups. The Cerise skin from Lara Hurley is truly beautiful and inexpensive for the options that are available (brows, lips, eyes). I wish that the skin offered a true ‘bare’ face though, cos with the closed-eyes option on LeLutka Mesh Heads, the eyeliner stretches a lot and it looks messy. *hint* Please make a no-makeup eyes option.

Today I am at the beautiful Everlong sim! I coveted this Fawn Friend from MishMish but didn’t want to play the gacha machine. I’m just unlucky in gacha, but Sasy is not! She won this fawn for me, and I’m super grateful! <3

I finally got around to trying on the Doll v2 update from Pink Fuel! This update is free if you already have the regular Doll skin, just go to the store and click on the re-delivery terminal. I am most excited about the new LOGO mesh head applier! It’ll work on all current LOGO mesh heads, but my favorite is the Alex mesh head (worn here).
The pastel brows are perfect for Spring/Kawaii styles!
What I’m Wearing:
Pink Fuel – Doll v2 (Crystal) Omega/LOGO Head Applier
Exile – Wink
Teefy – Zoey Bodysuit (White)
eefy – Zoey Bodysuit Bra (White)
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!
