Have you noticed that there’s a new blogger on JuicyBomb? Elle is my friend that had her own blog for years, but now she’s blogging here! Her writing style is engaging, so leave her some comments if you want to see more posts!
Exile released the most gorgeous braided hairstyle for Collabor88 this month. I am wearing the Iron Maiden hairstyle (love the name), and pairing it with Minerva Joggers and Fire Boots from Blueberry. To complete this outfit, I am wearing the sexy Annie Satin Top from Ricielli. I’m not usually a fan of shiny textures, but Ricielli does it nicely and very realistic.
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Iron Maiden
Ricielli – Annie Satin Top (Mint)
Blueberry – Fire Boots, Minerva Joggers
Mandala – Taper Pierce (Star)
Pink Fuel has released two new skins! Here’s one of them, Sabine. She’s adorable and youthful, perfect for giving your Catwa heads a unique look. Go by the Pink Fuel mainstore and give it a demo!
Also, guess who won a Lelutka Bento head?
ME! This is my new “face” going forward. I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s Kiyomi skin in this picture. Having an Omega-friendly Lelutka head is exciting–now I can look forward to trying on a lot more skins and playing with different appliers.
SUPER thanks to Sophia Harlow of Blueberry for gifting me with this awesome head, and Gogo for nominating me to win it. 💖💖💖💖💖
I have more Bento mesh to show you in the future, including some fun avatars. Stay tuned!
I haven’t done a skin review in years, mostly cos I felt that SL system skins have peaked around 2013, and there was nothing else to write, that I haven’t written hundreds of times before. I have reviewed 245+ skins in SL from countless brands, some have stagnated and never moved beyond system skins, or they simply retired.
I plan on reviewing more skins in 2017, if I can alternate between more than a handful of brands. I won’t look for seams or point out flaws anymore, because it’s 2017 and I figured that most brands should have that figured out by now. If a skin is not to my liking, you will not see it on my blog. It may have taken me about a decade of SL blogging to figure it out, but it is much more efficient use of my time to focus only on well-made products. Unfortunately, that does mean that a lot of brands with potential will not get the feedback that they desperately need to grow.
This is the Lucrezia skin from Glam Affair. This skin is available at Uber, along with lashes and brows made specifically for the LeLutka Simone Bento head. I like the brows that it comes with, so I didn’t get the extra brows pack that can be worn with any Glam Affair skin/Lelutka Bento head. I also like that I can mix-and-match the makeups from some of the recently released Glam Affair skins to create some different looks. Even though I didn’t wear a lot of Glam Affair over the years, I do appreciate that Aida is a prolific skin maker.
The Lucrezia skin is $899L per skin tone, and comes with 8 brows color, 8 lipsticks, and 8 eye shadows. It is available at Uber at the moment, and will probably be available in store later on.
If you bought a LeLutka Simone Bento head, how do you like it? I love it of course, but I’m still waiting for some of my favorite skin brands to release skins. I am wearing an older Lara Hurley skin today, and the fit is pretty good, except for the lips. I’ve noticed that most of the older LeLutka appliers that I have fits okay around the face but the eyes and lips are slightly off. I wore a lipstick applier over this skin and changed my lip shape, but I still want a skin made specifically for the Simone Bento head. It’s difficult to get a unique face when we’re all wearing the same two skins.
I almost never use Omega appliers, cos one size does not fit all. I prefer makeups and skins made for a specific head cos the fit is so much better. And Omega script is slow, so to me it should be a last resort. It is frustrating when a skin I like is not available for my head, but I would rather wait for one that does instead of buying an Omega skin and hope that it works alright. Have you tried your Omega skins on this head? It does not work.
What I’m Wearing:
LeLutka Simone 2.0 Bento Head
Truth Hair – Irena (+Hat)
Foxes – Party Dress
Blueberry – Show Time Coat (Angel)
Ingenue – Anja Heels (Creme)
Shaping making has always been a past time of mine, but many people find it frustrating or time consuming. I made a shape for the LeLutka Simone Bento Head, it’s for sale at my store in-world and on Marketplace. I’ve also made a video for you to see it in action!
