Alika

Alika

I have this friend in SL… she has a huge heart, an infinite capacity for fun but also for working hard. She is RL beautiful—I saw her photo and she is an absolute knock-out. She lives in the Hollywood hills so I get a perspective of LA that is very exciting at times. She likes tall men, chocolate, her dog, and Burning Man. And she is fiercely devoted to her friends. Thankfully I am one of them.

I named this Alika on the suggestion of someone else, but it’s apropos. Alika means “most beautiful” in Nigerian, and this is how I see my friend. She is very casual but chic so this amazing mesh dress from coldLogic completely suits her. I love how coldLogic finally took advantage of what mesh provides—a way to make pieces that wrap around the avatar without looking like system pieces. You simply could not do this with sculpties.

My skin is a luscious rendering of a beautiful African-American woman from Meghindo Romano. It’s pretty difficult finding one like this that includes features specific to African-American women (like smooth highlighting across the face, deeper tones in the shadows, a wider nose and delectable lips). My hair is a tumble of waves from Queue Marlowe.

I scored with two fashion scoopts for this blog: first, my eyes from Ikon Innovia, who is rebranding his store as IKON. He is finally coming out with a new set of eyes, just in time for Spring (and Fashion for Life). They are completely new—not just recolors. They are coming out any day. I am so lucky to show them!

And AvaGardner Kungler sent me this set of jewelry that I went nuts about. I just love the simple shape and the absolutely gorgeous textures. Ava understands that sometimes it’s about a curve, a richness in the metal, a general feeling of heaviness. I love this set!
