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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello from Aurelias! We’re adding touches of Spring to the town square, and the centerpiece is this beautiful Blooming Grand Piano from Dust Bunny. Add your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group to be selected for the group cover. I love seeing the region through your eyes.

I’m wearing the new Ubon head from LeLutka. It’s slightly different than Kaya, but I think I’m ready to move on. I spent days modifying my shape to my liking; it’s a work in progress. I shared this raw screenshot on Twitter a few days ago. I love the HD brows so much, and this is the first time I’m undecided between the really thin HD brows or the one I normally wear, the less thin one. They both work so well for this head. I normally only like the bottom two, the rest are way too bushy and thick for me.

I’ve been attending the Concierge and Land User Group meetings and they’re so lively and interesting. I started going to be more informed about upcoming land changes and to give feedback. Wendi Linden & Vix Linden were such great hosts. Here’s the schedule for the meeting — see you at the next one!

I already know a lot about Second Life land, maybe too much. I’m obsessed with regions, Linden Homes, and mainland (even though mainland is my least favorite land product). Recently I learned that some residents don’t utilize the 10% group land bonus because they don’t understand it. I’m currently holding a piece of mainland, and with the group bonus, I can donate my extra tier to my friend. If every Premium member (who doesn’t own a Linden Home) deeds their tier to group, they would have a little extra to donate to a public project or acquire more land. If you own a big enough parcel of mainland, where the 10% bonus is 512sqm or more, you could use that extra to get a Linden Home.

If you find land stuff interesting, let me know in the comments. I’m happy to share some tips & tricks to maximize your land-owning experience without spending extra money.

What I’m Wearing:
LeLutka – Ubon Mesh Head
Exile – Elia
MVT – Lady Fashionista bag (White)
Tetra – Bella Dress
Tetra – Off-Shoulder Cardigan
Ingenue – Olivia Heels (Champagne)
Yummy – Dainty Layered Necklace

Happy Valentine’s Day! Spring has arrived on Aurelias, and it’s just the perfect weather for a stroll around town. When I’m not wearing casual outfits, I love to dress up in frilly Victorian-style looks, or my interpretation of it.

I had a grand time today riding the Linden Love Train and meeting some Lindens and Moles at Isle of View. This year is my first time attending the Dunk & Hug a Linden & Mole Event, and I was disappointed that there were only a few Lindens in attendance. It was definitely exciting to pose for a photo with the most popular Linden of all time, Patch Linden. I wanted to meet some of my favorite Lindens on the Concierge team, but they were probably busy working.

DeeTalez, Events and other Ramblings

DeeTalez-Fanny

“Hi All,” says Elle Couerblanc’s Typist. “This time tomorrow I will be on a grand adventure to the Great State of Florida! But before I go I had to make one post of our girl, Elle Couerblanc, in the latest release from Deetalez called Fanny. “Doesn’t Elle look so cute,” she continues with a heavy sigh, “plus, over the weekend, Elle went a shoppin’ to all the various events on the grid, and boy does she have a lot to say…
