Happiness

LeLutka is releasing another trio of mesh heads – Stella, Lotte, and Karin.  I’m wearing Lotte with Izzie’s Sophee skin and makeup appliers for them.  My favorite tone at Izzie’s is sunkissed, and I’m wearing the freckles option on my Maitreya Lara Body.  I’ve tried on all three heads, and each I like, and have no preferences yet for them. I am partial to Lotte so far.  As with many mesh heads you will need to adjust your shape’s eyes.  So make a copy of your shape, with the adjustments for your head folder.  I find that different heads require different measurements sometimes.  With Lotte you will need to adjust more so.  My eye spacing is 48, I could have gone about 46-48 on the sliders, and my eye opening is 30.  The mesh heads are also affected by changes on the head length and stretch sliders in Edit > Shape.  So play around with it while you demo.  Skin and makeup designers have been releasing LeLutka mesh head appliers with skin/makeup, or makeup options.  If you’re a makeup creator, you can find a developers kit free, on the table in the mesh heads section of LeLutka to get started creating makeup appliers for them.  Stella, Lotte, and Karin will be released on April 30th, 2015 at 9AM SLT time (that’s SECOND LIFE TIME aka USA PACIFIC TIME so GMT-7/8 depending.).  I’ve demo’d all of them and I have to say they’re really beautiful. They have a more youthful feel to them then the earlier trio, and easily transition from uber glam to soft dreamy looks.

Happiness

I’ve spent the past week out and about going to lots of events like Shiny Shabby, and doing the TAG! Gacha.  Lot’s of fun new things out! I’ve set up an outdoor camp with many of my newest things, like Ison’s Travelling Star set, and a few things from various gachas like 8f8, and Zerkalo. Of course I have a bevy of Fashionably Dead Cats running amuck through it.  My trees and grass are from Studio Skye, they have been my first stop lately for all manner of nature, and my horizon is a (sim) edge landscape from Landscapes Unlimited that’s a favorite of mine at the moment – the Rolling Hills. I’ve got the Gold version which lets me choose terrain, trees, etc, and its the edge version so it runs along the side of a sim. I don’t have mine off sim like many use them for, but within the sim so I can add more trees etc to the hills and I also like to reduce the height of trees I add to exaggerate the suggestion of distance. I could link them and make them all off sim, but I change them out so much I don’t bother. I love these horse props and poses I picked up at Focus Poses. With each set of poses you get a horse, with menu driven poses, and texture change mesh horse! I found the horse was a tad low poly for my photos so I heavily edited it. Sari-Sari’s Apples pose set worked great, and it comes with mesh apples as well.

Butterscotch

Butterscotch

I love butterscotch, and when was trying clothes on I was happy to find Emery’s Crackled Sweater in Cara Latte, went perfectly with my new Sigourney boots in Ochre from Slink. Suddenly it just brought out the butterscotch tones, which I think contrast nicely with the denim and blue.  The Emery Crackled Sweater has a cracked effect, and features a washed denim cotton oxford underneath.  It’s available in a variety of colors, all perfect for fall.

Slink’s Crop Split Jeans are sheer genius, for wear-ability with boots. One of the downsides of mesh, is the difficulty of layer, in the past we were able to just wear our boots over our layer jeans, and now its not feasible.  This style cropped jean, plus the split make it perfect for getting the same look, with some added flair. Should this style take off, across the grid amongst designers, we would be looking at a serious virtual world fashion trend.  The new Sigourney Boots from Slink are available in twelve colors. They are to just under the knee, with beautiful leather texturing. They come in all sizes available for standard sizing, so you can customize your layering.

My accessories are Maxi Gossamer’s Nima’s Fall Leaf necklace and earrings, which feature a variety of lengths, and texture change leaves. Ison’s Scout Boho Bag in chocolate was perfect, for a rich chocolaty suede tote. I’m wearing Flair’s manicure Set 102 in Camo3 on my Slink mesh avatar enhancement hands. It’s a bright goldenrod tone with black tips, from a fun autumny pack. My skin is a new skin from Izzie’s, the Katya skin, in sunkissed tone.  I’m wearing the brown eyeshadow with hot red Lips, and face only freckles. My hair is from Eaters Coma, Hair 27, which was released this past summer at Hair Fair 2013.  I love this hairstyle, it’s long with a bit of a wave at the ends, and tendrils at the temples pulled to the back.
