Wasabi Pills has released a number of new hair styles since Hair Fair 2011. Shown here in a style post is a cute one called Pompon. Featuring color/texture change headband, ribbon, knot, and hair bands. It’s a cute look, I love the bangs. Also shown are Roy which is a nice unisex style, and I think Thor does well for girls as well. MissAllSunday Lemon, the hair designer behind Wasabi Pills brand, had many requests for a variation of her Kiki hair, and released Kiki Act II. I’m wearing a fun top called Vicky from artilleri which features a variety of different ‘patches’ shown here with Cherry. I paired it with an early summer release from LeLutka, the Caprica jeans, shown here with the 3/4 cuff option. Bukka is a cute store I love to find new things in, shown here are the Double Ring Belt, in this amazing color, it’s full of options even color change loops to match your clothes. I’ve pulled out a favorite style of purse from Celestial Studios. Celestial Studios was around for years for those didn’t know. They were a popular place to go for skins, eyes, and clothes. They closed earlier this summer, and will be missed. If you have their items, brush them off, give them an airing they are still great. Lately I have been using alot of their babydoll dresses with my Bloom avatar.
YS&YS’s new release is the Milano Slingback, a sexy slingback shown here in Cherry White. These are cute, I love the various patterns and colors. These are prim feet, and be sure to remember your best tricks for tinting as they do not feature any prim work to hide the attachment point. Remember when tinting you will never get a perfect match, just very close to it. For these I recommend being sure to size them right to obscure the area. I sized down about -5 to hide the join. When tinting for street wear (as opposed to blog wear) I like to use the default light settings or a standard Caliah windlight setting. The majority of people on the grid are using default or a Caliah windlight variation. I no longer wear face lights. Together these help assure me that most people most of the time are going to see me with matching feet. It’s not fool proof, it all depends on what someone else’s default light settings are, and if there are lights around. Who cares when they match on my screen ;P!
Many people aren’t sure how to go about tinting feet with just using a color picker, for those who aren’t sure I have taken a shot of the color picker on the YS&YS HUD, and circled the area I used to sample colors from. This area, as well as below into the greyish areas is great for finding various skin tones. Just use the slider on the right to move between light and dark after choosing. Play with it a bit.
