Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes

Aria is one of the three mesh heads that Lelutka will be releasing in a few days. I’m wearing it in the India tone that’s bundled into the Lelutka hud, as well as the Maitreya Lara body hud. Third from the right, on both huds, it’s the India tone from Glam Affair.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes

When released, I recommend getting demos of each, and trying each out with your favorite hairstyles. Many people (and I did too) thought that when mesh body parts came out, especially heads we would lose our ‘uniqueness’. I’ve spent quite a lot of time sitting next to my friends as we try the same heads, with various skins, makeup, and hairstyles. Sometimes we look vaguely related to each other as when you do when wearing the same skin on a default avatar, and sometimes completely different even when everything but the hair, and eyes are the same. How you style yourself is where the you (U) in Unique comes from. Ashia, Sasy, and I wore this head today side by side, and also they’ve blogged it recently as well and we looked completely different. Ever was my favorite up until I had sometimes to get used to this, after trying different hair, etc with it, I could be quite happy with this as well. So take your time, demo, try out different things, lay with your head stretch/length and give yourself to acclimate to one or more.

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your EyesI’m wearing Mina’s latest hairstyle release called Aranka. It’s available starting April 1st at the FaMESHed event. My necklace from the Floral Rocks set of jewelry from League. It has a hud to change the metals and add change a few of the gemstones. I’m also wearing a cardigan and shorts from Baiastice that is currently available at Uber for March, grab it there now, or afterwards in the main store.  It’s available in a wide variety of colors, and the cardigan also has an under-bra version as well. The Los Angeles shoes from Essenz are available in a variety of colors, and she’s added another pack of colors of pastels in a third pack! They were for Fashion For Life and now available at the mainstore.

Blood Makes Noise

Blood Makes Noise
Indyra just released this hot new dress called Heist. As soon as I opened the notice, and saw the photo, I snagged it on Marketplace.  You get the 6 dresses, which is at great price, you also get earrings, and the fatpack of Cerise Handbags with it. I loved it in the Gold version which comes off without materials enabled as a nice nude tone. I haven’t played with the materials setting to check this dress and bag out with them on. I need a graphics card upgrade before I can enjoy materials.

The texture work on the Heist dress is amazing, lot’s of detail. I love the shape of the dress over all, and what a waist and booty! If you wear mesh hands I recommend wearing the next size down or two if you have any parts that show through the sleeves as they go well past the wrist. I barely had any showing with XSmall hands, and a size small dress.  The handbag is stunning, and comes with a hand version worn on the left, but I moved mine to the right. Also included are a shoulder, and bent arm attachment points.

Blood Makes NoiseMy hair is new, and from Mina, it’s the Vera and currently available at The Chapter Four in the half price room. I love the soft bun, and it also has a materials version. I’m also wearing Lethal’s Eternity Minx Stole in Crimson. The stole features a number of chain colors.

  Ivy Levan – Hot Damn 

Autumn Walk

I’m crazy about the autumn season, it’s the perfect time for being outdoors, when the earth is full of rich color. Dressing for fall is just as much fun for me, when the stores are full of mimicking color, multitudes of textures like suede, leathers, wools, and knits. Layering is the key to keeping winters breath away, maintaining mobility and warmth, and the flexibility of the day turning warmer or cooler at a moments notice. My outfit is layered for a walk in the forest.  A warm new wool coat from Slink, cheerful ginkgo yellow shorts, warm leggings layered under, and beautiful boots.

Autumn Walk

Slink recently released the Marigold Coat. It’s available with a variety of options if you chose the Multipack version.  This version will give you eight wool coat colors, seven belt colors, eight collar colors, and six button colors, that you can mix and match to create a unique look with an easy to use HUD.  I’m wearing the green wool coat, with tan belt, cream collar, and cream buttons. If you choose to purchase it as a single, buy the color you like, which comes with a preselected collar, belt, and button color, that are shown on the vendor.

My shorts are a new release from Boom, the Estate Short.  They’re nicely tailored and available in forty different colors. They’re up on marketplace if you wanna browse the shades.  Layered underneath my Boom Estate Shorts, are my Folklore Leggings in Navajo print from League.  Earthy colors, geometric print, and a nice thick tight knit, which pick up the tan in my Cult Riding Boots from Ison.  These boots are hot thigh highs, in an amazing leather texture, with straps behind the knee and great heel shape. They’re available in tan (shown), black, brown, carmine, cream, and navy.

My accessories are Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Dew Encrusted Teardrop ring.  It’s texture change, and I went with amber for my outfit. It’s a nice earthy chunk of rock that suited my look. My earrings are Zaara’s Atiriya Stone Earrings in Carnelian-Gold, more chunky rocks for this look. I’m wearing Flair’s Set 102, in Camo4 to pick up the reddish browns. on my Slink mesh hands. Maitreya’s Leather Satchel in Camo, for a soft suede contrast to my knits, wools, and leathers. My hair is new from Mina, the Josje.  I went with a nice auburn shade, it comes with a hud to change the color of the ponytail band.  I love the thick fringe/bangs. My skin is a new skin from Izzie’s, the Katya.  I’m wearing the Green eyeshadow layer, with Peach Glossy lipstick, and moles.

Hair Fair 2013 – Mina Hair

Hair Fair 2013 Mina Hair s

Mina released 4 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2013.  I’m wearing Mirjam from Hair Fair, a nice long smooth style.  I’ve styled the Mirjam with a new dress from Tabloid called Nantes.   The dress is currently available at The Boutique event. Nantes utilizes the new “Materials” of the latest Second Life viewer. This dress is comes with two styles, bow same color as dress, and bow in black.  The black and white version features bodice in black with bows in either colors. I’m wearing the safari shade which is this rich school bus yellow, with matching bow. It’s a great little dress, and would look great paired with a stylish skirt, or slacks. I’ve styled with some of my favorite accessories from Celoe, the Xylia Pumps in claret, the Clement Necklace in sonata, the Dara Bracelet in stigma, and Handverk’s Palette Purse in standard/gold. The purse is a cute clutch style, with aged brown leather back,  love the texture, and the attention to detail.  My skin is Izzie’s Jill in sunkissed, with brown eyeshadow, and dark red lipstick layers.  I’ve used Izzie’s skin appliers n my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, and manicure from Flair, Set 100 – partuy.

Hair Fair 2013 Mina Hair h

Mina’s three other Hair Fair 2013 hairstyles are Ineke, which is a long hair style with beaded headpiece.  Ineke comes with a hud to change the beads colors in preselected sets, and an “alpha” option that removes them. Laura is a lovely tiered mesh updo covered in wisps. The Petra is a long hair style, with some tresses up front, and to the back.

Men will be particularly pleased to know there is quite a lot of styles for them this year, so grab your guy and shop for a good cause.  Your purchase of any hair styles at Hair Fair 2013 will donate a percentage to Wigs For Kids.  You can beat the lag at Hair Fair by joining the Hair Fair Demo group inworld, and trying on demos in the comfort of your home, before coming to the fair. Vendors are set up to redeliver any hair that you might miss accepting, which eliminates double purchases as the vendors will only let you buy it once.  Just left click the vendor and it will redeliver.

Also available at the fair, are Free Official Hair Fair 2013 outfits, which feature him and her layer clothing, and hair bases from DCNY and Exile. No need for AO’s, just find a bus kiosk and rez a bus to move in edit around the fair, they come in singles, and larger versions for group shopping.  This year the theme is a fun interlocking block build, each sim has it’s own unique color scheme and style so you can easily tell where you are and where you’ve been.  Upon arriving at a landing point, you can chose left or right, follow the path and easily make your way around the fair, back to where you started assuring you of full fair coverage.
