Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
There are a few events going on in SL at the moment (aren’t there always?) but this weekend, the fifth Fantasy Faire opens. Personally, I’ve never been but I hear it’s quite amazing, especially if you are into fantasy wear. Plus, it’s a Relay For Life event so it’s for a good cause too! Pin Me Down will be one of the vendors at the faire (sharing a stall with SAKIDE this year, so you can find them on the Lotus Valley Dream sim) with some exclusive makeups. The Warrior comes in a faded black, and faded white which is tintable you can make it any colour you want. Myst comes in six different layers so you wear it how you want. Because this is a RFL event, 100% of the purchase price will go to donations. Another Warrior makeup will be a hunt prize that goes on for the duration of the Faire.
Speaking of fairs, Kawaii Fair has already started and runs until the 26th (or 28th? Both dates are listed on the blog so I’m not sure). Kawaii is full of
nauseously adorably cute everything! Most of it isn’t my style but had to pick up this super cute Panda Tank Top from (R E D). It’s a panda! How can you not want it?!
Oh, one last thing, this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Austin Powers / 60’s British Invasion! I got inspired because someone on plurk mentioned that with LeLutka‘s Bouffant hair, I looked like a fembot from Austin Powers. So originally I wanted to take a picture with a bunch of girls, all with the same lingerie and hair but because of various issues, it ended up just being Aevalah and I. I think we would be some pretty damn hot fembots.
I can’t wait to see all your submissions in the Flickr group because I think this will be a real fun theme for everyone!!
I probably should have mentioned this over the weekend but Apple May Designs new mesh dress September was available for 75L. Now it’s regular price. Yeah….sorry about that. It’s available in three “muted” colours (taupe, pink, and sky) and comes with a cute matching, mesh collar.
LeLutka also has some recently released hair. Usually I don’t go for the big “lion mane” like hair but I couldn’t resist picking up Bouffant. Also included is a separate pearl tiara attachment that adds a little something something to the style. Bouffant is definitely an attention grabbing and versatile hairstyle.
Good thing I held off on the announcement that I’d finally be getting a male blogger to bring some class to this blog up! Last night, before everything went to hell, I went and bought Glam Affair‘s Zara. Which means I actually bought $L just for this purchase. For most, that’s probably normal but that’s a HUGE deal for me. I hardly buy $L, and when I do, it’s never for one specific item. I became a huge Glam Affair fan with Linn and I haven’t looked back since. Zara is no different. This skin is fawless (imo) and comes in great variety of makeups to satisfy all your needs. It’s available now at Skin Fair until the end of the month, then I imagine will be available in the mainstore after.
One of my favourites from this year’s Skin Fair comes from a designer that I’ve never thought I would want a skin from. I know that sounds so mean but it’s the truth! Iren has two new skins out at the fair, Addison and Alexa. Both come with the “matching” shape (I used my own shape and just modified it a bit), with & without eyebrows, 2 Makeups along with a “nude” version, and freckle & cleavage layer (among various others). It’s available in 6 skintones AND COMES WITH LOLA APPLIERS!!!! Exciting isn’t it! What’s really cool is that you can buy a version that COMES WITH mesh hands. Yes, I said mesh hands. MESH HANDS THAT ALREADY MATCH YOUR SKIN. So great right!?
English Muffin also has a new skin release, Rini, but I totally fell in lust with their Doe Eyes. It’s the great baby deer eyes that are just oh-so-cute! They come in 5 colours, as well as dark and light versions.
So for once I had set out this plan to “blog with the big girls/boys” concerning Skin Fair 2013 coverage. I had my favourite skins I wanted to show you…but then RL happened and SL was hating me hardcore for just being logged in. So, as you probably know Skin Fair 2013 is under way and let me tell you, it is really good this year! Not just the new skins but the sims themselves! I went today to grab Zara, the new Glam Affair skin for the event and there was NO lag. I was even on ULTRA (!!) graphics, tons of people there and zero lag. Congratulations to the organizers and builders who designed this (other event should take notice, just saying). Now on to the pretty pictures.
Let me start by saying how funny I think it is that when LOGO came out with their Hybrid Mesh Avatar, Chloe, almost everyone was up in arms about “losing their face” and their “originality”. Some people got over it eventually and embraced it. Now enter Snow Rabbit‘s Nea (which everyone loves, no talk about losing their face and whatnot). I was all for Chloe so naturally I
wanted needed Nea. Creator Shirousagi Noel was amazingly generous enough to send me a copy and I haven’t taken it off since getting it. You probably know by now how “great” I am about writing reviews so I’ll save you the pain. Like usual, Juicybomb has a detailed review, so does So Hawt SL. I’m sure there are bunch more great reviews out there, so have fun reading!
Nea is a younger face compared to LOGO‘s Chloe and Sadie, and much more lifelike. There’s only a few issues I have with Nea. For the life of me, I can’t figure out the eyes. Looking at everyone’s pictures and blog posts, I find I have crazy eyes (hence why the eyes are closed in both pictures). Besides that, the head itself is simply amazing.
I also kinda of went a little crazy and took about 40 pictures last night and figured I might as well show you the new Gos Lolita Espadrille. They are an update to mesh of the original but awesome-r and have the new Colour+ System. If I understand correctly, Colour+ means if you buy the same shoes in different colours, you won’t have to change the actual shoe to wear different colours. You’ll have the ability to mix and match. They are now available at The Boutique by TLC until April 10th, along with an exclusive Cherry Blossom style that I had to get because they are so pretty! FYI – These are only 495L, whether that will be the price in the mainstore after I’m not sure. So get them now while you can!
