Marinara Flutter

.
The main component of my outfit is a new release from MichaMi called the Marinara, shown here in red, a smexy, stylish one piece dress.  I’m wearing a few of LeLutka‘s early summer releases the Anna Belt (available in Light, Dark, True with 3 variations per), and Tairona Bag (comes with ao), along with their latest skin release- Flutter.  Details further down about the skin release.  I’m wearing the Moitie Jacket from Nyte’N’Day over the dress.  This is a favorite go to jacket in my inventory, I love the details of the jacket belt.  I have accessorized with A:S:S‘s Narayan Necklace.  Maitreya‘s Allegre shoes are another summer release I’m wearing available in a number of colors, or grab the fat-pack for the ultimate in mix in match styling.

LeLutka - Flutter

LeLutka just released Flutter a new female skin with a variety of new tones.  Shown here is Bisque which I judge to be similar to a light-mid tan/sun-kissed ranged tone.  I really liked the unique eyebrows, and the beautiful shading that really accentuates the eyes, a good cheek bones.  I am looking forward to seeing this changes as they relate to others shapes, but at the moment love it on my usual shape.
When you buy a skin tone you receive twelve makeup variations (one of them being a bare makeup, which is great on it’s own or for use with other makeup layers) in a dark brow, and twelve in a light brow. Two brow shapers (not shown here) for light and dark, breast enhancers on a layer and undershirt clothing layer. I was really excited to see the addition of two hair bases in Sookie, and Walnut Whip hair shades, nail covers in a matching bisque tone (for wearing under prim nails) on layer, and glove layer, and their 2011 lashes/curl  (which are color changeable).   I liked the range of tones this skin came in, and went with Bisque as it seemed like a nice end of summer tone, I look tanned, and with a few of the blushes a hint of sunkiss.  I might switch up a shade as fall progresses and winter comes. Grab demos to check out the new tones, and check out how it looks on you.

And..yes, I just blogged a skin in my fringed cowgirl boots, if you don’t like it you can go dig up my mother and tattle, but she’s just gonna tell you about the summer I refused to wear anything but my white patent dress shoes from Easter.

Grand Opening – Happy

Today is the grand opening of Happy, a new store with a lot to offer.  Casual wear, club, bohemian, even amazing tweed pants, and cardigans.  A little something for everyone, and all executed well.  Happy’s designer is Alika Luminos, a new to me name and maybe you too, in the fashion community. Her texturing is well done, her tweeds are perfection, and the amazing detail to her patterned items is excellent. Stop by, and see for yourself,  pick up her opening gifts, and hunt items, while shopping.  Psst..the items at the front of the store, by the customer service desk are discounted for the opening.

Happy - Red - Composite

This sexy cheongsam is well textured, and I love the prim frog closures and collar.  Easily paired with pants, or leggings, or left as a dress it all works.  Also new are these sexy amazing heels Sasy gave me for my birthday…the Ariadne heels from SLink.  Thank you Sasy!  I have on new hair from Amacci, Marlene has tons of bounce, whisps, and a braided crown.

Happy - Teal - Composite

Another awesome find at Happy was this Groovy Ecstatic top, that can stand alone as a dress too.  Featuring soft looking prim bohemian sleeves!  Available in a number of colors, it was hard to choose, I had to fat pack it.  You should see the blue!  A recent release of hair from Maitreya with this cute color change elastic tie is perfect, as are the Ishaya velour slacks in acid from Zaara,  I paired it all with Elikatira pumps in teal, and Mood’s Fallen Tears jewelry set in gold.  A soft, casual look.

Tempest

Tempest

I have been slowly accessorizing and playing with different tops for this outfit for weeks, trying out different boots, hair, tops.  I finally settled on J’s latest release of their Cowgirl Boots2.  I love these boots in this red, but I snagged the fat pack.  These are classics!  The fringe is flexi, and has great movement.  I’m wearing the latest from Tres Blah, this lovely peasant top, with embroidery.  If you like it it’s also available as a dress at the store.  By chance I was already planning this outfit with Tres Blah’s denim cut offs, which are layer only, and I like that about this style.  My skin is by Felicity Blumenthal, made specially for Another Fundraiser II called Ginger Skin.  Only $50L with 100% proceeds going to Red Cross (for Japan).  My purse is from Addict and also benefits Japan, with proceeds going to no kill animal shelters in Japan.  The Fur Japan event started last night, and is jam-packed with items!  I picked up three great houses there. My hair, Tempest, is from Exile, and I am in love with the length, and soft flex.  My jewelry is from Mood, called Bandara, in silver with turquoise which match my turquoise eyes from Amacci.

I discovered these post processing effects in the Singularity viewer, and was curious to see the effect inworld.  Sometimes you just want to cut the post processing time down, or take snapshot.  This is a great, and I hope they further develop it.  I would like to see the Gaussian Blur effect lightened, and think it would be great to incorporate shadow/highlighted borders too. To access them 1. log into Singularity, 2. on your top tool bar World – Environment Settings – Post Process Effects.  I have made photos demonstrating each of the effects.  Color Filter let you play further with Gamma, and Brightness. I loved being able to change the Saturation while retaining any windlight settings I have on.  Contrast is really nice addition as well.  The Gaussian Blur is great in thought but the effect even at level 1 on the slider is too strong for portraits.  Night vision is way cool!  I like that you can also create an effect, and save it.  It’s really easy to use. To see the effects, click the Enable box, play with the sliders.  The tabs stack so if you want one more than one tabs setting, leave enable on. Check out the photos.

A Busy Week

Riddle Secret Linden

The grid has been a nightmare for me recently, textures take forever to rez, worn prims disappear, then when everything is just right and I try to take a photo, the prims go grey again.  Way too frustrating!

I finally was able to get some blogging done, this outfit comprises some new releases, some event clothing, and a charity item.  March 5 to March 26, Juicybomb is hosting Pure Juice, which features a number of designers.  I’m wearing from that event, The Secret Store’s Juicy Top, in Hot Pink.  It’s also available in Carmine, and French Pink.  Featuring a prim top, with cute black bow empire waist.  Also featured at Pure Juice is Riddle, who made these awesome leather pants, shown here in black, they are also available in brown. I love the texture of them, and they feature prim pant legs.  This is just a tiny sampling of what’s there, click here for a teleport to PureJuice.

My hair and necklace are recent releases from Maitreya, and Mood.  Lotte is a relaxed pony tail with color change ponytail band.  Mood’s Chrysalis necklace and earrings, come with a hud that lets you change the metal from the shade shown here to darker tones. Je Suis has had a sale going on, you might still be able to stop by and binge on jewelry.  I picked out my Magnifique bracelet, I bought the fatpack, which has a set of bangles, and each bangle, or all, can be color changed via hud.  Two stacks are included, preset to be worn on either wrist.

My bear is the Relief L$1000 – Teddy Bear, all proceeds from the sale of this bear go to the ‘Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief efforts of the American Red Cross’.  Click here to view the 2 styles of bear, one sitting, one wearable, available in various prices. For other ways to give inworld, check out the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser which starts March 16th, and Radar magazines Japan Relief Fund Event.
