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

Let’s meet at the beach

This Kenya II Playsuit from Ricielli is fabulous! Nothing says beachy more than coral, so I added a big splash of coral to my outfit today. I crashed after taking the first picture, and for some reason my hair detached itself, and all the colors reverted to default. This explains why the band on my hat is two different colors, cos I forgot I had originally colored it white. You probably don’t even notice, and I didn’t either until I went to crop the photos.

Do you ever notice tiny “fails” in SL photos? Sometimes I don’t even fix mistakes like hair going into clothing cos I think imperfections make SL interesting. Back in the day…… we were lucky when our hair didn’t randomly attach to our butts.

Now is a good time to head over to Hair Fair! This gorgeous Lorelay hairstyle from enVogue is giving me wonder woman vibes. The twin braids are so cute!

I like clothes that are sexy without baring it all. Ricielli does it perfectly with this Paula Mini Top. I don’t have anything like this yet, and the length is perfect for pairing with high-waisted bottoms.

Ricielli – Paula Mini Top
The Secret Store – Nora Highwaist Skirt
ANE Accessories – Arida Boho Bag
ANE Shoes – Myth Sandals

This newly released Anna Blouse from Ricielli is so pretty and the fabric folds are ultra realistic. I am pairing it with the High Waisted Shorts also from Ricielli. Truth released three gorgeous hairstyles at The Epiphany (a gacha event); I am wearing the one called Ice and a matching crown. This is what I call awesome princess hair, and a total must have if you like long hairstyles.

Look at my gorgeous Lola Wedges from Maubray. The shoes include a HUD to change textures + color for both the upper and heel part. I picked floral print cos I don’t have a lot of floral printed shoes in SL, and I am so in love with these.

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Ice + Bangs, Crown
Ricielli – Anna Blouse, High Waisted Shorts (Ocre)

Have you noticed that there’s a new blogger on JuicyBomb? Elle is my friend that had her own blog for years, but now she’s blogging here! Her writing style is engaging, so leave her some comments if you want to see more posts!

Exile released the most gorgeous braided hairstyle for Collabor88 this month. I am wearing the Iron Maiden hairstyle (love the name), and pairing it with Minerva Joggers and Fire Boots from Blueberry. To complete this outfit, I am wearing the sexy Annie Satin Top from Ricielli. I’m not usually a fan of shiny textures, but Ricielli does it nicely and very realistic.

Pink Fuel Liya Skin

Pink Fuel Skin

Today several amazing things happened. First, I became a rock star. Second, Pink Fuel released the most gorgeous Liya skin, but it is for the Catwa mesh head only. Third, I bought a Catwa head for the sole purpose of blogging the Liya skin. These things don’t usually happen all in the same day, since I’m usually not that social nor do I change my entire look on a whim.

I didn’t plan on buying any mesh heads since Project Bento is right around the corner. If you don’t know what that is, Project Bento will allow certain mesh heads to be editable (like default SL shapes). I don’t know much about it, but that’s the feature I’m most excited about.

Pink Fuel Skin

Chances are good that if Pink Fuel creates something, I will blog it. I’m just not a huge fan of Catwa mesh heads, since I never found any skins I liked on it. I decided to give it a try today cos I wanted to wear the Liya skin, and I must say there are lots of products on Marketplace for Catwa. If you already own a Catwa head, I highly recommend the Liya skin from Pink Fuel. If you’re like me and tend to buy things just to blog then never wear them again, maybe wait for a Project Bento release so it’s editable.

The Liya skin includes a HUD with so many options!

Did you guys click on the link above to read Sasy’s blog post? Read it if you’re a blogger. Sasy proposed that when bloggers post about any brand’s item, go to that brand’s flickr/social media post pages and share your link! This type of cross-promotion can only help drive sales for the brand when their own customers see it in use by many bloggers with different style ideas and photography styles. I am on board with this cross-promotion idea, so I will start sharing my links when I blog any products.

What I’m Wearing:

Pink Fuel – Liya (Ivory)
LeLutka – HF06 hair
Ricielli – Julia Minitop (Orchid)

Straying away from colors today cos I wanted to wear a monochrome outfit. This fabulous outfit is the Dismay Princess top and tutu from Fishy Strawberry. The top includes a HUD to change graphics or keep it plain. I love that Fishy Strawberry included the HUD with all the graphics!

Party

Speaking of HUDs, I feel that they are a must-have when it comes to mesh clothing pieces. I like having options! These gorgeous Irina Heels from Ricielli also includes a HUD to change every single part on the shoes, which is how I was able to match it to my outfit. Praise HUDs!

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Tyne
Fishy Strawberry – Dismay Princess (Top, Tutu)
Ricielli – Irina High Heels
