The Volcano

Just some moody shots as we approach Halloween! Are you already going to Halloween parties in RL or SL? I haven’t yet, but I have decorated my house with lots of pumpkins and string lights! I also think I might attend the official Creepy Crawl on Friday.

From 10-3pm on October 30th, users across the grid will visit selected haunted spots in Second Life while dressed in costume. So far the official haunt list isn’t up yet, but I’m sure it will be by the time the event starts! For more information about the Creepy Crawl, contact Xiola Linden.

I’m wearing the new Verve skin applier with my Logo head today! I’ll take a better shot for my next blog, but I wanted to show it off now because it’s so gorgeous. I love how there are several shades of red lipstick included in the applier package for me to pick from! You can buy the new skin and appliers here. For those of you with Catwa heads, yes, Verve has made appliers for that too!

SLink Physique Hourglass

SLink Physique Hourglass

I’ve always been happy with my SLink Physique body, but some residents wanted more curves and thicker thighs, etc. The newest  SLink Physique Hourglass body delivers ample curves and is noticeably thicker. You’ll see this body reviewed many times, so I’ll make this short and sweet.

Out of the box, the Hourglass body on my shape is way too curvy for my taste. I find the waist to hip ratio too extreme, but some residents seem to favor this look. With three slider tweaks (Waist, Love Handles, Breast Size), I was able to adjust my shape to something more moderate that still looks curvy without being extreme. As you can see, I am still my usual size, with slightly thicker thighs, which are lovely!

The new HUD is amazing, cos you can now toggle various sections of the body on/off, without having to click many parts individually.

Let me know if you’ve tried the new SLink Physique Hourglass body, and if you will be switching to it! I haven’t decided what I will do yet, but I will spend some more time tweaking the body so the proportions are my idea of well-balanced.

What I’m Wearing:

Nothing, lol.

LeLutka mesh head

One of the largest feedback that I’ve seen about the Lelutka mesh heads is that they’re too pouty. The latest update allows your favorite Lelutka mesh heads to smile, part lips, and express herself with more than just the pout. I forgot to take a picture of the HUD, but you can view it on Sasy’s blog and see all the different faces too.

I am wearing the Aria face today, something I have not worn before in my previous coverage of LeLutka mesh heads. I think this face is a lot closer to Gogo’s face than the others, the face shape is really round and feels like ‘me’. If I could adjust the eyes shape to be rounder, it would almost be perfect. I am wearing skin by Glam Affair, it really suits these mesh heads.

Are you as stubborn about skins as I am? I will usually wait for appliers from my favorite brand (can you guess what brand that is?) before committing to a new mesh head. However, I’m flexible about certain mesh heads cos I know that not all brands will look good on every mesh face shape. So that’s something to keep in mind when you’re shopping for mesh heads. Buy it if it looks good with skins that are available!

I wear SLink’s Physique body almost exclusively, so I haven’t noticed that there is a fit issue or that not a lot of brands are offering mesh clothing for Maitreya’s Lara body until this past week. You can read about the issue over at Sophee Mojo’s blog. I’m not a creator so I’m pretty vague about what “weights” are, but apparently it’s a pretty important file and creators need it to make clothing fit right for any body. Not too many creators have the full kit for Maitreya – just 24 brands for mesh clothing, according to the official list. If the brand is not listed, it’s safe to assume that they’re just guessing the right fit, so clothing for Maitreya’s Lara may or may not fit well.

I noticed that issue today while wearing this dress from Fishy Strawberry (not listed), the straps doesn’t really fit around the shoulders. As I said above, I always wear SLink’s body and thankfully, my favorite brands are already listed, but if yours isn’t and you wear Maitreya’s Lara body, that’s something to keep in mind when shopping, always demo!

Have I ever told you about the time I met the guy who plays Jason Voorhees?

I was at a comic convention irl selling artwork about two years ago. After putting my gear up when selling hours ended, I heard there was a special horror movie showing–and I was going to be late for it! So, I ran towards the section of the hotel it would be hosted in.

That’s when I saw a really tall guy looking lost by the stairs. He asked me where the movie would be showing because he was late for it too. I said, “Yep, I’m headed that way!”, so we walked together. I talked about how scary it was to drive around at night and how being lost on a street with no lighting whatsoever was “true horror”.

He just chuckled at me.

We arrived at the auditorium and I took my seat. The man went to the front, where it was announced that he was the actor who played Jason Voorhees. I felt silly but soon we all settled in to watch the film and have fun.

The actor who played Michael Myers was there as well. Someone brought in a bottle of whiskey for him, and “Jason” walked around pouring drinks for those who wanted some. Because the theatre was small, there weren’t that many people there and we had a lot of fun.

And that was how I made corny horror jokes to someone who plays a well-known psycho killer (and then he served me whiskey! lol).

The dress I’m wearing is from PEQE, and is part of her set for Tag Gatcha. I also wanted to show off this awesome hat from Katatonik (available at Gen-Neutral event) and the gorgeous twisted tree behind me, which you can find at We <3 Roleplay. The tree comes with multiple sits and animations, and is great for placing in your woods. I put mine on my home parcel!

These teeth are also available at Gen-Neutral from EXE.cute. They work with mesh heads pretty well and regular heads too. Just place them where you want on your mouth and you’ll look like you have fangs!

The Helena V-Neck Sweater from The Secret Store comes in basic colors and fun Halloween prints! I love that the HUD includes an option to choose elbow patch colors and turn it on/off, and turn the shirt collar on/off. This sweater is a must-have item for my autumn wardrobe! I’m looking forward to more classic styles like this in more seasonal prints and colors!
