Drug Town, RSCM38

Drug Town, RSCM38

I recently visited RSCM38, a unique region in Second Life known for its moody atmosphere of crime and poppy fields. I found myself mesmerized by the poppy field and even spotted some mysterious figures lurking in the hills. The area is beautifully crafted, featuring vibrant, colorful streets and plenty of places to grab a bite. You can wander around this place for days, and it makes a fantastic setting for photo shoots.

The vibe here really reminds me of Cuba, from the colorful buildings and vintage cars to the scenic beaches. It’s a spectacular spot that’s definitely worth a visit!

Weekend Vibes

Step into a charming little world within Second Life, where every accessory whispers a story of cuteness. The Anthology event is back, offering a collection of delightful items for you to discover. I’m holding the enchanting Explorer Cat Backpack by Aardvark, featuring an animated kitten that brings the backpack to life. Customize it with the included HUD that lets you pick different cats and accessories, and color the backpack to your liking.

Also awaiting you is the Ducklin’ Toseds cup from Comatosed, inspired by a popular real-world brand, complete with little fish that swim around inside. You can change the cup’s color and the type of fish swimming in it, all thanks to a customizable HUD.

Discover NeutralTones, a brand new to me, with their Special Friend Tshirt. It looks deceptively simple, but the detail is spot-on, from the realistic folds to the HUD that allows you to choose between two cute friends and a variety of shirt colors.

Laundry Day

Laundry Day

Sunday has rolled around again, which means it’s time for chores like laundry. In Second Life, I don’t often choose lingerie, but when I do, I prefer Bakes on Mesh for easy layering. They’re great for layering under other clothes to keep my look tasteful.

I’ve also made a point of wearing actual underwear lately, instead of just turning on the alpha on my pelvis.

Recently, I picked up a charming Nyla bra and panties set from Ison, and guess what? It’s a group gift, and joining the Ison group is free! When I first wore this set, I noticed the nipple area was quite prominent. But no worries — I just used the Bakes on Mesh add-ons from Maitreya and everything looked much smoother.

BoM Add-ons

It’s pretty interesting in Second Life how some clothes really go into detail in certain areas, if you get what I mean! Thankfully, some thoughtful designers offer solutions to soften those details.

Friday

Friday

Happy Friday, everyone in Second Life! I’m excited about this new set of poses I found. The Erin pose & anim pack from Goyo comes with cute headphones, perfect for enjoying music or snapping fun photos. What I appreciate most is that each pose has an animation, plus a flipped version. However, I did notice my fingers were not positioned perfectly in some poses, which made me tweak them using the poser in the Black Dragon viewer. It’s not my usual viewer, but it’s pretty useful for these adjustments.

Ever put on a skin and felt like it could use a bit more shine? I found this Highlighter set by Izzie’s that offers lots of options to add a nice glow to your skin. The skin that I’m wearing, Emery from Glam Affair, already looked good, but I couldn’t resist adding a bit more highlight to areas like the eyes, forehead, and the area just above the lip.

Cozy Spaces

Cozy Spaces

Happy Sunday! There’s something incredibly charming about smaller spaces— they radiate coziness, and it’s quite simple to create a full, inviting room with just a few pieces. With the help of my friend, Fay Starlight, we’ve assembled three delightful rooms using furniture and decor from the latest Anthology releases.

Cozy Spaces
Bazar – Kay Bedroom

The bedroom we designed showcases the Kay bedroom set by Bazar, which offers a complete suite for crafting a comfortable space. It includes a bed with an array of textures at your fingertips, as well as a classic fireplace that brings a slice of warmth and realism to the setting.

Cozy Spaces

Moving over to the living room, we selected items from Blue Sky, another gem found at Anthology. The Alpaca armchairs and ottoman by Blue Sky add a touch of whimsy with their delightful fuzzy texture. The centerpiece here is the splendid Blue Sky Cusco Console, complemented by an elegant Gold Leaf Abstract artwork, versatile enough to harmonize with decor accessories from various home and garden creators.

Anthology

Anthology

I went to checked out Anthology, a new event, that starts on the 19th of each month. It’s like stepping into a slice of pastel-colored Italy with Italian-esque storefronts and staircases connecting different levels. It’s a lively setup, giving off that festive theme park energy but in a virtual setting.

Anthology

With Anthology making its grand entrance, I felt it was only fitting to dress the part. I picked out the Eostre Dress from Enfant Terrible, which comes in both sheer and opaque options. The best part? The dress includes a HUD that lets you play with the colors of almost everything—the straps, petals, skirt, and even the underskirt. I chose the sheer version, which manages to be both sophisticated and appropriately modest thanks to the underskirt.

Anthology

No ensemble’s complete without a little sparkle. That’s where the Kirana Armlets from Michan come in. They perfectly match the dress, and with the customizable HUD, you can change the metals, the jewels, and even hide certain parts of the armlet for a more personalized look. It’s got me thinking I should step up my game and wear long dresses with ornate jewelry more often.

Photo taken with JuicyBomb – Autumn Skies EEP Settings

Hello from the sandy shores of Sillywood! This adorable little beach and boardwalk spot is the absolute best for a casual walk or snagging some great pics for your blog. I’ve got a thing for beachy scenes in Second Life, and boardwalks? Yes, please!

Sillywood

So today, I started to tidying up my inventory a bit (I didn’t get very far), but I did find lots of cute items that I bought recently. I decided to mix and match some of my faves from last month with a few fresh finds from this weekend’s sales events. This Mattie Long Sweater Dress from Ison is everything! The color choices are fab, and it’s comes with two HUDs that lets you switch up the under shirt or sweater colors. And these Worn Block Sneakers Stickers Edt. by Semller? Utterly adorable and a steal during the sale.

LeLutka – Billie Mesh Head 4.0

LeLutka - Billie Mesh Head 4.0 in Second Life

Just when I’ve settled into a new face that I completely adore, LeLutka goes ahead and releases another one! At this rate, I’m embracing a slew of new faces each year—and falling in love with every one of them. LeLutka has launched two mesh heads, Billie for women and Aaron for men, at the Skin Fair, offering them at a 50% discount until the event wraps up on March 25th.

Now, let’s talk about the new Billie mesh head. To put it simply, it’s beautiful. The HUD has received an upgrade, adding more options to play with, and the most exciting addition for me is the introduction of two-layer options for the HD lips—something I have wanted for a long time! As usual, with LeLutka’s previous mesh heads, I had to adjust my shape to get the perfect fit for this new face.

LeLutka - Billie Mesh Head 4.0 in Second Life

Whenever I try on a new mesh head, I make it a point to test all the animations to see if the new expressions look good. I’m thrilled to report that Billie does not disappoint—the animations look fantastic, and somehow, they seem even better than my previous ones.

Snow Rabbit (W01X) Mesh Head

Snow Rabbit (W01X) Mesh Head

It’s no secret that I love mesh heads and skins. If you look at my blogging history, you’ll see that I’m always eager to try on a new face, and I get really excited with each advance in mesh head technology and features. Skin Fair 2024 just opened, and although I’ve said it in jest that it’s like Christmas for me, this is overwhelmingly true. Everything is brand new. I can’t wait to try it all!

Back in 2013, everyone fell in love with the Snow Rabbit (S@R) Nea mesh head. I remember being thrilled by the facial animations, particularly the incredibly realistic crying and animated tears.

Now, more than a decade later, Snow Rabbit continues to release adorable mesh heads, and their latest, the W01X, truly caught my eye. It’s available at Skin Fair for 30% off – and it’s compatible with LeLutka’s EvoX skins. The compatibility with EvoX piqued my interest, as I have a collection of EvoX skins and makeups that I’m eager to use.

Every time I acquire a new mesh head, I evaluate it on how easily I can shape the head to look attractive. Do all the sliders work as expected? How smooth are the animations? Does the HUD offer robust customization options? The Snow Rabbit W01X mesh head meets all these criteria for me and delivers a solid option that I believe many will adore.

Pepe Skins
Pepe Skin – Delina V2 (Cake) skin with lots of tattoo makeup fixes

Wow, tattoo makeup layers are amazing! So I snagged Pepe Skins’ new Delina skin over the weekend for a sweet L$100 deal. This skin is incredibly gorgeous, and it hardly needed any tweaks on my part. Included with the skin is a neck blend that stretches down to the cleavage – not totally my thing, so I just used Velour’s no-cost body neck fix to seamlessly merge the face and body skins.

Let me tell you, layering can get tricky, but when you nail it, it feels like magic. It’s all about the right sequence and a bit of hue play to get that perfect match. Personally, I opt for a lighter base layer and then enrich it with deeper shades – it’s always easier to darken than to lighten.

Tattoo Makeup Layers:

  • Velour – Body Neckfix (Icy) Evo X
    (tinted to match body, free @ Velour store)
  • Glam Affair – Face Shadow 20%
    (included with some GA skins previously)
  • Glam Affair – Face Shadow (Ears) 20%
    (If you use the Face Shadow, use the ears layer too)
  • Amara Beauty – Amalia Lipstick Evo X (Nude)
    (to cover up the splotchy dark middle of the lips)
  • Izzie’s – LeL Evo X – Eyeliner black A
  • Izzie’s – LeL Evo X – 04 blush / Contour Remover
  • Glam Affair – Rosie Brows Toner White
    (tinted brown)
  • Pepe Skins – Delina V2 / Cake NB
  • cheLLe – Powderpuff (Translucent 10)
    (tinted to match Pepe’s cake tone / tip: put this layer underneath all of the face tattoo layers so that it only tints the body)

The charm of adding tattoo layers for me is that I’ve collected them over time. I wouldn’t even consider purchasing a skin that required me to invest in a whole new set of layers to get it right. And for L$100? This skin is a steal, looking fab even bare.
