In The Sunshine

In The Sunshine

Erratic recently released the Cory Oversized Sweater at FaMeshed.  A great mesh sweater in a variety of patterns from plain, color blocks, stripes.  Grab some demos, each one is fabulous.  I’m wearing two in this post, a plain purple, which was really really purple, I love it, and Color Block 1, full of deep bright colors.  I love the detailed cuffs, and the zipper in the back.  With the sweater in Look 1 I’m wearing Emery’s mesh Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans- Tie Dye.  A nice smooth tight fit, nice shape, love the design.  I accessorized with matching purple mesh Alexa Wedges from Maitreya. Twin Skinny Belt from Aoharu, Celoe’s mesh Clement necklace, and a Patent Leather Purse from Modern Gypsy.

In Look 2, I’ve styled the sweater with a mesh highwaist mini skirt from Richielli, in a bright orange and ethnic print.  I played with all the colors by using my new mesh Valencia jewelry from Gossamer Jewelry currently at FaMESHed.  All the pieces have preset color combinations in them, just click and a menu drops down. They also featured various lengths of necklace, and multiple strands.  I used more color by adding a great clutch from Osakki, they’re currently closed, but plan to reopen soon featuring skin and accessories.  Can’t wait until they do! Check your inventory to see if you already own this cute clutch.  II’m wearing a new mesh hair from Ploom called Trista, it’s a perky ponytail, that’s available in a solid one over color, or dipped.  I’m wearing Maitreya’s Salience Socks & Tights Liquorice and a new skin from Amacci called Liane.  Liane in bronze is a very tanned look, and I really like the abdominals on this. I wore matching lip tattoo lipstick, and went with a blush from her Blush pack.

Look 3 features a new mesh shirt from Boom.  It’s a cute cuffed cropped tee, available in a variety of colors, and graphics. Check out some demos at the mainstore. I’m wearing it layered over a on layer tank from Jane, and with Ricielli’s ETA Jeans in White Leopard.  I’ve accessorized with a belt from Bukka, which features color change leather, and rings.  Hard to see as look 2’s arm is around my arm but I’m wearing YS&YS’s Naala bangles, and their gold hoop earrings from their Afrika set.  I went my Maitreya mesh Radical Boots in chocolate suede, I love how soft they look.  My hair is new from Wasabi Pills, called Izumi, featuring two cute mesh thin long mesh pigtails. I finished off the look with the oh so cute collar recently released from Pididdle.  It’s mesh, and available in a variety of colors/textures.

In Look 4 I am wearing the denim version of Boom’s mesh Twenty-Three Tee.  The Valencia set from Gossamer that’s also shown in Look 2.  This time I’m wearing the bangles, and a multiple strand option. I’m wearing Miel’s recently released long mesh Jersey Skirt, and SLink’s Suede Wrap Wedges, color changed to match my top.  My mesh tote is from The Secret Store, and I took all my color cues from it. It’s a happy, brightly colored print. To offset this summery look, I went with Amacci’s Liane in bronze skin again, adding Glitter Eyeshadow from Izzie’s, and Izzie’s leather waist belt.  My hair is also from Amacci, and new.  Sira’s a really cool pony, with color changeable highlights, and band via HUD, and worn with a matching hairbase.  I was really excited to see this hairstyle, and can’t wait to wear it more.

September Day

September Day

September is here, and I put together a casual look for it.   If you hadn’t already heard, Mesh has gone gridwide! I am amazed to hear many people haven’t heard the news.  You can download the new viewer (Viewer 3) that supports Mesh from Linden Labs, if you’re a fan of third party viewers Kirstens also has Mesh viewer (Kirstens S21(9).exe), and V1 lovers…Astra Viewer is mesh with V1 layout (no added layers of V2). I can never get the website to load lately direct download at this link.  If you’re using any other viewer you will not be able to render mesh items correctly.  For some great tips on making your own custom alpha layers, which will be really handy for modding mesh to your shape, or if you are using Astra, check out this easy tutorial Sasy put together here.  Free gimp download (it’s like photoshop, if you don’t have it) here.

I’m wearing mesh shorts from Jane. Jane put together a fairly large release of mesh clothing. Definitely worth stopping by to grab demos! They bend well with the body, and I loved the colors they came in, a cute look. Bukka just released the cutest boots, and they are available now in store, or grab them in the lucky chair!!!  To make it even better, they have a 50% off sale going on! I didn’t wait for the lucky chair as another W was waiting, instead I snagged them half price! As well as the cute jacket I am wearing which came with this cute fur scarf.  The boots are color changeable via hud and worth the full price.  I mixed in a the Ribbon Tied Tanktop in faded red from League, which features prim prims which you cant see in this photo, as well as the cute Wanderer Earrings she made.  I topped off with new hair from LeLutka, Oscar is a fun hair if you loved the Rykiel, you will love this, with extra braided pony tail attachment.  I love the attention to detail on this. I’m wearing new eyes from Amacci, who just released tons of new eyes called Gaze Eyes.  These are moss green, and I love them to death. Can’t wait to try out the many other shades she has.  Ploom has new poses out too, go see!

Retro Wasabi

Wasabi Retro
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.

Wasabi Pills Recent Releases

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!

YSYS HUD

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.
