Are you a blogger, blog manager, or store owner looking for bloggers? Check out SL Bloggerati! I was a member of another SL blogger group for some years, but it closed a couple of weeks ago. I am now a member of this new group, so join it if you’re looking for a blogging community and/or bloggers to publicize your brand.
I’m diving into 2018 with a new skin! My last favorite skin was from six months ago, so I’m due for a much-needed skin update. It is definitely a new year’s miracle that I liked not one but two new skins from Glam Affair, both released within the past two weeks.
Glam Affair – Michelle
The new Michelle skin from Glam Affair (@Collabor88) will be my new skin! I still look similar than what I’m used to, cos I am sticking with the same skin brand. One of the nice things about staying with a skin brand, is that most of the makeups are interchangeable between the different faces. This is why I find it incredibly hard to change skin brands and/or skin tones!
Glam Affair – Michelle with Denise lipsticks
Before I tried on Michelle, I definitely chose the Denise skin from Glam Affair (@Uber) as my new skin. I love the lipsticks! After I tried on Michelle, I decided to wear it as my new skin instead, so now I will just wear the Denise lipsticks over the Michelle skin. I’m complicated.
How old is the skin that you’re wearing now? Let me know in the comments!
Merry Christmas Eve! I am exploring the Mopire Tokyo Subway Station, it’s modeled after a real life subway station in Japan. I could take photos for a whole month on this sim and all the photos would look different cos there are lots of cozy places and cafes to explores, in addition to the subway station.
I love my outfit today! Everything is from Ricielli, which is sort of one of my favorite brands in SL. I’ve said that before, right? I think they do sexy-casual clothes really well. The Rhea Sandals that I’m wearing includes a color-changing HUD to change all components of the sandals, so I was able to match it to my outfit perfectly.
Happy Holidays! Whatever you celebrate, you should do it in style. I am loving this gorgeous Uma Skater Dress and Mia Bolero from The Secret Store. I specifically chose to wear the Foil color cos I love the shimmery metallic look, and it pairs wonderfully with the Scarlet bolero and Marmont Pumps from A N E Shoes. These pumps are adorable! I’m delighted to find another brand of shoes in SL that works so well with my style; definitely keep an eye on A N E if you’re into pretty shoes.
I’m slowly but surely decorating my SL home for Christmas. I got a new Christmas tree this year from Moss & Mink! All the ornaments and decor are pastel, so it goes with my home perfectly. I have several other Christmas trees I want to put up as well, in more traditional colors. I love Christmas.
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Anyway
The Secret Store – Uma Skater Dress (Foil)
The Secret Store – Mila Bolero (Scarlet)
A N E Shoes – Marmont Pumps (Stone)
Moss & Mink – All That Glitters
What Next – Sierra S’Mores Station
Do you know why I’m standing in most of my SL photos? Because poses in SL are terrible when your limbs bend in any way. I want to sit down. When I do sitting poses, my limbs go into each other or the clothes or the furniture. It’s all terrible. SL has advanced so much, but we’re still using the same old poses. When brands label their poses “bento poses” it really doesn’t mean anything. Unless it’s an animation specifically for a bento mesh object (like the mesh heads animations) – static poses are still crazy. They’re made exactly the same way they have always been, and they don’t look right. I’m so tired of editing my photos to look “not crazy” in sitting poses. I’m not great at redrawing an entire limb or sleeve in photoshop, so it will always look off.
Comment on this post if you agree about the poses not fitting, EVER!!!! What can we do, as a community, to make poses work better for all of us?
