Hello from Scrooge’s office on Aurelias, formerly Scrooge and Marley, but as you know, Marley died. As the cold weather sets in, I’m on the lookout for the perfect pair of pants to keep me warm in Second Life. It’s quite a challenge to find realistic pants rather than just leggings, but I stumbled upon the fantastic Blair set from Ricielli. This set not only includes cozy pants but also a stylish crop top, and the best part is that it’s available in LaraX!

Maitreya Lara Update – LaraX

Comparing Maitreya Lara vs LaraX

The Maitreya Lara body is nearly a decade old and it’s still going strong. Despite other bodies on the grid looking quite good, I’m kind of loyal to the Maitreya body because I like the body shape and the HUD. If you own the Lara body, wear the HUD and hit the redelivery button to get the free update.

So what’s all the rage about LaraX? My first impression is that I really like the new smaller shoulders. The other updates are not that noticeable to me, so even though Maitreya says to consider this a whole new body, it’s basically the same body with some tweaks. However, the change is enough that most items created for Lara will no longer fit. You can always switch back and forth between the two body versions as needed.

The mesh of the LaraX body is also smoother and more defined. The geometry has a better flow, resulting in a rounder and softer body. LaraX has:

  • Rounder wrists and ankles
  • Thinner wrists
  • Reshaped shoulders
  • More defined groin area
  • Reshaped arms

Because of these changes to the weights and to the mesh, content made for Lara will most often not fit LaraX. LaraX should be considered a new body, requiring content that has been made in her specific size and with her specific weights.

We will keep offering the original Lara body (V5.3) alongside the LaraX body. They will come together in the package. So that you can switch between them according to your needs.

What’s included in the Maitreya Mesh Body LaraX package? A lot! I was pleasantly surprised to find mesh lingerie from Addams, Blueberry, and Velour included. There are also body parts mods included for Appliers and Bakes on Mesh (BoM).

eBody Reborn w/ Juicy Boobs

Is something different about me today? Am I looking more well-endowed than usual? You may have noticed these Juicy Boobs making an appearance on the grid lately. I was intrigued by the name’s similarity to JuicyBomb* (my brand), so I decided to investigate.

*JuicyBomb has no affiliation with Juicy Boobs, but if they want to give me 10%, I’m in!

PUMEC Kate, New Skin

Pumec Kate

I confess, I love gacha skins when I win the makeup/tone I want with a few plays. This new Kate skin from PUMEC is a gacha item at Kustom 9. PUMEC only has 6 skin tones, so I don’t really wear it as my main skin since none of it is exactly what I want, and I prefer pinkish undertones. However, for $89L, you won’t get a better skin deal than this! PUMEC includes the body applier with every skin for FREE. I’ve always felt that having to buy a body applier separately was only getting 1/2 of a skin. It would be great if other skin brands followed this and included the body applier with every skin purchase, or gave it away free to customers.

The hairline is a dream on this new Katie hairstyle from Exile! Built-in hair base is everything; I won’t even buy hair without built-in hair base if it needs it. I went to the Exile main store yesterday for the FLF hair, and I noticed that ALL hairstyles are now $400L for the fatpack. One price. One hair HUD. All the colors.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Exile – Katie
  • Ricielli – Lynda Dress
  • ChicChica – Pumpkin Earrings (gift)

Ice Cream

Ice Cream

Twirl over to Hair Fair, it ends at midnight SLT tonight. I instantly fell in love with this Rie hairstyle from Argrace. Besides being absolutely adorable – 100% of the proceeds are donated to Wigs for Kids. Of course you can probably get it later, but if you get it now, you’ll look cute and feel great about your purchase.

I also went to The Arcade this morning and had to have this Ice Cream Cart from 220ML. I have several ice cream trucks and ice cream carts, and yet I still needed this specific Ice Cream cart. Thankfully, there aren’t too many pieces to collect; I decided not to collect all of them, due to li limitations on my Linden home. For now, this ice cream cart will live at my beach house.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Argrace – Rie
  • DAE – Ring Earring (Group gift)
  • Amitomo – Way We Feel Gacha (bag)
  • Ricielli – Celly Top, Skirt
  • Ohmai – Usagi Mochi Ice Cream
  • Ingenue – Elke Sneakers (Ice Cream)

Pink Fuel Anja Skin

Pink Fuel

I needed something exciting to happen on the grid, and Pink Fuel delivered with the gorgeous new Anja Skin! This skin is a delightful and unexpected surprise from Pink Fuel, since Mochi doesn’t create a lot of LeLutka appliers. With this new skin, I also changed my skin tone to Biscuit, instead of my beloved Peach tone. Biscuit is one shade lighter, but still rosy and sun-kissed.

Pink Fuel

This skin is available at LookBook (for $1,350L) and includes skin & makeup options to truly customize your look! Have you noticed a trend with SL “events” moving to a HUD-based system, instead of in-world shopping? I love this! I like new things, but I don’t like waiting for things to rez or struggling to enter crowded sims. Unless the sim truly provides something awesome to explore, most of them are just vendors on a wall. I think they all look the same, so this is a more preferable way to acquire new goods. What are your thoughts on HUD-based events?

Pink Fuel

What I’m Wearing:

Pink Fuel -Anja Skin for LeLutka (Biscuit)
Exile – Flowers in the Sun
Ricielli – Luisa Pants, Top
Ingenue – Delish Heels (Prints)
