Diesel Works has a couple of goodies, most recently I used their Shake poses for my blog post on Maitreya Gold @ 2009 SL Footwear Expo. The set includes 12 static poses, that feature wide extended body layouts, as well as more drawn in. Many of them were sassy, and full of life. The proportions were good, and I found no mesh breakage.
Diesel Works also has a posing chaise lounge called The Debutante Chaise Lounge, that does double duty for awesome boudoir furniture. Featuring 25 poses using the chaise as a prop. The chaise includes a photographers edition with photographers stool, is available in 5 colors, and also all in one fat-pack. Copyable, easily adjustable via menu, and only 10 prims! The variety of poses included were fun, sexy, and perfectly suited for this type of prop, and easy to use.
Maitreya Gold is featuring a stylish stiletto with prim feet at the 2009 SL Footwear Expo. This one is called Shanti in Snow Leopard, a luxurious snow leopard pattern, with rosy pink inner lining. The snow leopard print (I really DO love you Onyx!), but I have to say it, lends itself easily to using with dalmatian prints. I was easily tempted to wear a thick, long, black fur coat with this, but let’s face it, who wants to be old Cruella de Vil, when you can be chic, young, Cruella. The stylish chic girl about town, with a dark side. ;P
The Maitreya Gold Shanti Snow Leopard, features everything we’ve been spoilt by them, Shoe HUD that allows you to tint to match, with easy reference card to many skin lines for an exact match, slots to save various tones to, and ability to change your pedicure. All this in a sexy heel. I am on pins and needles to see if they release this in a full range of animal prints. This ones for charity some come give and look amazing for it.
I went with Bijou‘s Selfish dress (ha! apropos for Cruella), it’s a highly versatile outfit, with full flexi babydoll like dress option, also optional is a leather wrap around for the bodice. It features a short mini, a tank, and prim belt. I wore Aoharu‘s Shiny Down jacket in pink, but chose to not wear the sculpted prim parka jacket body, and prim cuffs, creating a bolero jacket effect. Aoharu also includes a number of options with jacket purchase, which include sculpted collar, fur-trimmed hood, hood up option, and unisex size!
I matched my jacket perfectly to my lipstick on my Chaisuki Gina skin, vamped up her hair with Dernier Cri‘s Natasha style in black with white tips. Did you know Cruella was known to drink ink? Perhaps her hair looked like this when she was younger. I have a tip for you when wearing prim lashes with bangs, the alpha’s will make the lashes show through, so make a copy of your lashes, wear the copy, edit the part that will be covered by moving those pieces into your skull, add left eye or right eye, bottom right, whichever applies to the lash name and voila, prim lashes and bang! Shown here is a modded Celestial Studios Club Collection lash.
I am wearing alaMood‘s beautifully textured Akhai Teke Set, a mix of gold, silver, and white metal. The effect is striking, and yet soft. The set features a necklace, earrings, and cuffs. Easily modded if not a perfect fit straight out of the folder, shown here I moved the necklace to the spine attachment point, as my jacket collar was attached to chest.
The 2009 SL® Footwear Expo is to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots foundation. The event will run from November 22 through December 6, 2009. For more information about various events being held click here.
