OOTD + Podcast – Sasy Scarborough & Whimsy Winx Discuss Demos in Second Life

49605615942_3a41feeadc_3k.jpgOOTD + Podcast Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx talk Demos in Second Life by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

Hair Fair 2017 – Amacci

Hair Fair 2017 - Amacci

Amacci released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2017 .  Lani is pretty short cut, a little tousled, with a side part.  Inia is a very high voluminous pony tail. The HUD allows you to toggle 4 different bangs/fringe so you can have bangs/fringe off, parted, to the side and longer, and blunt cut.  Feray is a long hair style that runs to the back and front and the HUD allows you to choose between both sides forward – while still being down you back as well, or one side to the front. The hair color I used in this post is a fade which is available in the Variants, and the Crazy pack. Amacci is located here on the Noirette sim.

Hair Fair 2017 – Tetra

35655425671_5ce2864df2_b.jpgHair Fair 2017 – Tetra by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Tetra released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2017. Orange is a braided hair which comes with an over the shoulder option, or down the back.  Mango is like Orange, with full braid, close to head, but is short, does not have the tail that Orange has.  The style is well done for both.  It gives the appearance of a hair that has a lot of volume to it, and it works very well for Mango as just an updo.  Cherry is a long hair, to the back, and over one shoulder.  All styles here are 1 of 2 red tones from the Balayage pack. Tetra is located here on the Brunette sim.

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.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

This was summer of fantastic releases that really filled out my wardrobe, and my house full of beachy things.  I picked up this cute boho blouse at Mimikri. She’s updated her store, if you haven’t been in awhile. Nothing but mesh now, and she always has something neat there. I really liked this top, and am wearing it with Blueberry’s Elina Shorts. They have a side string, and a really nice shape to them. I bought the fatpack, so I can wear them with anything. The fatpack HUD lets you easily pick from all the colors, and even recolor the side strings.

My hair is from Slink, who recently installed a new store. The rebuild is contemporary, sleek, and still has a bit of a retro feel to it. I really like it.  She’s redefined the interior space to specific sections making the place very easy to navigate. My Trinidad sandals are from Essenz. She’s has so many fantastic sandals, but these are my favorites.  My beach house is full of all kinds of fun gacha’s I played all summer, and some favorites I have picked up over the past year or so at a variety of events, and stores.

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.
