Island In The Sun

Island In The Sun

If you haven’t been to the latest round of Collabor88 you need to go. It’s their birthday round, loaded with tons of stores participating. I picked up Soy’s Dreamy Hanging Chair there. It’s perfect for finishing off the summer in. I’m wearing Mon Cheri’s Sachi Flaire Dress, it comes with sleeves (not shown) also. It’s available in a variety of solids, and these fun tie dye prints. They also include a belt with HUD so you can change belt colors.

My hair is is Laila from Mina. It’s at Festival of Sin II at the moment. I love the height at the back, and how full it is. My shoes are Essenz’ Marrakesh wedges, and they are available at her main store. They feature a metal circle emblem on the front of the strap, with a HUD for silver or gold option.

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.
