Adorkable @ Pose Fair 2013

Pose Fair 2013 has begun and there are so many great stores involved. Adorkable has several new sets of poses available, I’m featuring two poses from them. Adorkable is a unique pose maker who includes a mirrored version of each pose. This photo was done using Grace 1 and Grace 1m. In theory I could have created this photo by mirror myself in photo editing software, however, what if I wanted to do a location shot, with two avatars….mirrored poses for the win. I like the idea of mirrored poses as many times I will want to use a pose but because of what I am wearing it just doesn’t suit the post, but the mirror will. Check out the other pose sets at Pose Fair 2013.

Twin Grace

I’m wearing Doll COCO’s mesh ball-jointed doll avatar. This avatar body is free and comes in two skin tones, Snow, and Cacao. You can choose from a number of unique mesh heads as a separate purchase for a custom look, as well as mesh clothing, and costumes specifically made for the doll. She also has accessories like hats, helmets, even bat wings, animated insect wings, and monster feet are available. Join her free group and click the vendor at the store to get your starter body. The body has several body options, with or without lingerie, and ‘smooth’ option with no genital details, and a default version with nipple areolas and full genitals. After purchasing a Head for the body, you can wear it in place of the White Cap that tops the doll body. The head also includes a wearable teardrop, and a head with closed eyes. The dress comes with two necks in the skin tones, I didn’t need them, and the boots with two skin color options. I removed my doll feet to wear them.

For this photo I am wearing Doll COCO’s gift Rabbit Avatar. This rabbit looks so serious, it’s just adorable. Its a free gift, right next to another free gift of Wizard of Oz themed mesh characters, and a mesh Dorothy avatar. This rabbit also comes with a camouflage jacket. I’m showing off the cute Whimsy 2m pose from the Whimsy post set. I loved how even more defiant the bunny looks with it.

PS if you are looking for the gift Bat Wings, they are located at this location.   This is also were the new bodysuits, slip dress, insect wings, etc are.  Careful there is a body priced at $450 here, I believe its the newer model.  If you are looking for the clothing, more heads, and free body, rabbit, and wizard of oz characters they are at the DOLL COCO location I listed in my credits instead.

Ploom ~ Harlowe @ Skin Fair 2013

Ploom ~ Harlowe/Skin Fair 2013

Ploom has the Harlowe skin at Skin Fair 2013.. This skin features nice body toning and shading, in seven skin tones. I’m blogging the Cream skin tone, as its close to the range of skin tone I usually wear, but I also really liked the Vanilla which is paler then I usually wear but a really nice pale tone. The skin is available in five makeups, and with purchase you also get two eyebrow shapers, breast enhancer, nail cover, and lash tattoo. I’m wearing the included prim feather lashes.  Wasabi Pills just released this lovely long mesh hair style.  I like that it’s a bit wavy, it has a nice casual look.

Izzie’s @ Skin Fair 2013

Izzie's Jolie Lingerie Set Colors

As a blogger, when a fair comes out, I know I am not the only one looking for particular items to style with what I am featuring. Skin Fair 2013 is an example of that, I have to show skins, that means many of use are pulling out our stock of lingerie, and swimwear, and on the hunt for new styles of them. I would like to know if designers consider designing with these events in mind, like knowing that Skin Fair is the perfect time to release a collection of lingerie, and or swimwear. Izzie’s did, or at least I did when they released their Jolie Lingerie mid fair. This set of lingerie features nine colors with many layer options, and panties with garters on or off, and stockings to match. Hair is another item obviously, I’m wearing a mesh hairstyle from eXxeSs, its a half up half down long pony called Wenda.

Izzie's Asia Skin Tone Range A

Skin Fair 2013 is still going strong, and open until March 31st. Izzie’s released the Asia skin there, and this skin is worth stopping by and grab some demos and checking it out. Asia comes in six skin tones, light, Ginger Edition pale, peach, medium, tanned, and dark tan. Tango appliers are available for Asia. The skin comes with brows in light, blonde, red, and dark, and an enhanced cleavage option, and nail cover on glove layer. Asia has three eyeliners, six eyeshadows, and six lipsticks on tattoo layer. Izzie’s includes an eyebrow shaper, and it’s very own shape. The skin tones are lovely, and I like the peach, and the Ginger Edition pale tone, definitely worth checking out.

Glance @ Skin Fair 2013

Glance Skin Fair 2013

Glance debuted Anais at Skin Fair 2013.  Anais is available in six skin tones, ranging from a light tan to December, a lovely dark skin. I’ve used December to show the eye-shadows, and lipsticks this skin comes with. The tattoo layer ten eye-shadows give really nice definition and highlights to the lids, and the lipsticks come in ten mattes, and ten glossy versions. The skin is a really nice base to play with makeups on as there is a lot of attention paid to the face. I really liked that I don’t have to touch my shape for any Glance skins. Glance is great at utilizing hint of yellow to the skin which if you are looking for some culturally diverse skins, grab some demos and check these out, I like them as I can wear the lighter tones and still get the slight yellow undertone, that I used to in RL skin. The skins come with big and small cleavage options, and brown, black, or no brow options. Glance also has tango appliers available for the Anais skin.

Glance ~ Anais

Glance has recent releases Liu and Lana at Skin Fair. Both feature black, brown, no brow options. Liu also comes with a thin brow option, and Lana has a red and blonde brow option. The brow options are well chosen for the tones they are available in. Both skins feature big and small cleavage options.

Glance ~ Lana

I really like Lana on myself next to the Anais personally without changing my shape or hair color, and the three mid range tones it’s available in are really beautiful. I like how it really defines my brow bone on the eyelid, and gives me really great cheek bones. Lana has lovely ten eye-shadows on tattoo layers, and also features pretty lipsticks in ten glossy, and ten mattes.

Glance ~ Liu

Liu is a really pretty skin, that suits asian shapes very well, while I am wearing it on my usual shape, I tried it with another shape I have modded specially for the eye area of other asian skins and it was equally good. I really like the ten eye shadows, and how stunning they look with the skin. The skin has ten glossy and ten matte lipsticks. The base Liu skin features a pretty spray of freckles, and shine on the face. Glance includes a no freckle tattoo layer, and a no freckle or shine tattoo layer with them.

Amacci Rayna Skin Tones-vert

Amacci released the Rayna skin at Skin Fair 2013. The Rayna is available in three skin tones, Pearl, Olive, and Terra. Amacci also has Lola Tango appliers available separately for this skin. Rayna comes in twelve lovely makeups, and one “clear” (no makeup) skin, eight lip tattoos to customize your look. If you purchase the skins in singles, the clear version is also included. There are three cleavage options on tattoo and shirt layers to enhance, or de-enhance. Four eyebrow shapes, and two eye brow colors on layer in brown, and blonde. The eyebrow on the skin is dark brown, and the cleavage is nicely done. Amacci also includes lip corner tattoos, to give a slight enhancement to that area.

SySy Spring Romper

I’m wearing the Rayna in the Pearl skin tone, with my new mesh romper from SySy. The Spring Romper is currently available at The Liaison Collaborative event. The theme for this event is Cherry Blossom, and the romper comes in Cherry Blossom, Bluebells, GreenSprig, Lavenderfields, and WhiteOrchid to get you in the mood for spring. I’m wearing the Greensprig with a straw tote from Mon Tissu, Indyra Originals Suha Stones necklace in Silver Cloud, and LeLutka’s cute Mischa platforms. My hair is new style from Exile currently available at FaMESHed. It’s a long, and soft looking hairstyle that I think looks particularly nice in the ombre shades.

Erare Project

Erare Syrene Flora 1592x2408

The creators of Celoe and LeLutka recently released these stunning mesh mermaids called The Erare Project.  The mermaids consist of a variety of body parts to transform you from human to siren.  There are eight in total, each more beautiful than the next. Flora is a lovely bottle green that provides camouflage.  Fury is predominately red, with some tones of gold and orange and stands out brilliantly. Pretense is a darker mermaid with lavender, midnight, and prussian blues that mimic the deeper depths. Mercy is soft and lovely tones of subdued pinks, corals, and golds.  Ghost is muted tones of coral, nude, sea green, and pale gold. Glory are muted, and deep tones of red, gold, and browns. Spire is a beautiful black, that really stands out dramatically. Foam blends into the waves, with silvery blues, and muted lavender.

Erare Composite 7a

The hair is stunning, the concept is incredible, and it moves with perfection. Included are mesh eyes that are eerie and beautiful.  They’re modifiable so you can custom fit them.  There is a layer to add a shimmer to your exposed skin, and another for your torso that is the main torso color with added detail to the breast bone area. There are two types of breast adornment, one more modest than the other. I’m wearing the full version.  There are also several other mesh fin and kelp attachments for various looks, in my photo I am wearing all of them. Mesh hand/claws give a nice look, and give the impression you could really grasp a fish, or defend yourself with them. The tail is very long, giving a slim elongated form balanced out nicely by the caudal tail fin. The tail itself moves nicely with the body, and comes with tail angle HUD that allows you to move it in a variety of degrees to suit your mood.  They’ve also included an AO for movement with lovely animations, it’s modifiable allowing you to customize it further if you own more mermaid animations. Various parts are rigged to move perfectly with the body as need, others are left unrigged to allow you to modify them for a perfect fit.  This design was not only beautifully executed, but well thought out. The Syren’s are available on a barge in the waters just off of the city area of Mayfair.  Nearby them is a group gift of a lovely necklace made with them in mind.

If you are looking for more ways to add to your merlife, some of my favorite finds over the years are Kami-Hitoe’s Dramatic Seas AO2.  This ao has been my basic mermaid ao for years. It features lovely movement, ground sits, and my favorite hover, and crawl animations. Sala Snook, the designer at Kami-Hitoe makes a variety of mermaid ao’s, and items, all are worth checking out. My most amusing item from Kami-Hitoe is the mermaid fish bowl. Another favorite mermaid resource I’ve used is Creative Insanity’s Mermaid AO, it has beautiful ‘stands’ that move your body about in a very wide range. I have used both of the ao’s with the Erare mermaid and they work perfectly with them.  Check around the grid for more mermaid items, if you are looking for some cool additions to your own mermaid spot try SL’s Marketplace  for decor, homes, sea life, waves, rocks, surrounds, and plants. There is a wide variety of items that would be perfect to create your mer-paradise.  If you want to play, I recommend Mittandraland Mermaid Haven…watch out for the nets and mines. Thanks to Nei Ruffino aka `ToolKitten from DeviantArt whose stock images, stock_ocean_2 & stock_ocean_6,  I used for these photos.  I also used a variety of free textures for overlays etc from Insight Designs.
