Hello from Sundarban!

Today I’m taking my Genus Baby mesh head out for a spin. Back in April, I blogged the Delina skin from Pink Fuel with Genus Baby mesh head. I tweaked my shape and now I like the head more. Pink Fuel just released the Delina skin in more skin tones, yay! I also made a shape for Genus baby, check it out on Marketplace.

I wish Genus would update their HUD, cos it’s definitely not well-designed and still lack essential features. Compared to other mesh heads, how do you rank the Genus HUDs? Which brand, in your opinion, has the best HUD?

I don’t always play skin gachas, but I’m thrilled that Pink Fuel’s skin is for Lelutka! I’m wearing the new Emiri skin from Pink Fuel, available at The Epiphany. Available in 3 skin tones – Crystal, Latte, and Peach, so I guess only the most popular tones are available, to keep things simple. I’m wearing Peach here. This skin seems younger than Kiera, so if you’re looking for a more doll skin from PF, this is the perfect skin. Only $75L/per play, it’s an inexpensive way to try out a new skin!

New Skin 2018

New Skin 2018

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.

New Skin 2018

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!

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Caralisa
Blueberry – Zuzu Knotted Top

Mopire Tokyo Subway Station

Mopire Tokyo Subway Station

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.

What I’m Wearing:

Exile – Persuasive
ChicChica – Aurora #10, Aurora #8
Ricielli – Charlice Lace Top
Ricielli – High Waisted Shorts (Off White)
Ricielli – Rhea Sandals

Good Morning

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?

What I’m Wearing:

Truth – Cheri
Supernatural – My Diamonds Necklace #2, #G
Ricielli – Sweater
Ricielli – Adwoa Shorts
