Cool Girl

I went over to the West of the Rain for a cool summer day scene with poses from Katya Valeska for Shiny Shabby. I started with a new top from Doc Eldritch that includes some fabulous colors and a beautiful texture. Doc makes all his mesh from scratch and custom fits it to mesh bodies so it’s perfect every time. I paired it with shorts I got from Kinu Mayako at Thrift Shop that includes a HUD to allow different parts of the shorts to be switched out. Criss-crossed platforms from Darling Monday’s sale make this a sexy casual look.

Cool Girl

A trip to Shiny Shabby will also make you a cool girl. Start with Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous skin from Shiny Shabby, an applier for Catwa heads, which I am showing on the Destiny head. With gorgeous eyes from Lilanachristina and a unique necklace set from Aikeo Reiko for Shiny Shabby, the look is fabulous. I love the smooth long look from Vivienmarli for Shiny Shabby as well, a simple and easy ‘do for a casual freedom.

Once Wild

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you. ~ Isadora Duncan

Once Wild

I found myself going wild with this dress from Tatyana Ultsch for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a HUD full of delicious textures, I chose this wild one to suit the cut of the dress (which is cut up to there). I paired arm jewelry from Aikea Reiko for The Liaison Collaborative with the look—I wish more were making jewelry like this because I think a simple arm band is really sexy. Nail polish from Zozicon for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair matches the look and sexy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, new at her store, are open and sexy. My little gacha necklace from Revoul is pretty fun but it would have been nice if the creator had attached it to the spine and not the neck (hint).

Once Wild

Queue Marlowe must have been feeling wild when she cooked up this ‘do for Hairology. I had to choose the wildest color, of course, especially to go with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. The skin was made for the new LAQ heads but I found it worked just as well (thanks, Omega) on the Destiny Catwa head for the MBAF. I added some glitter and glam with eye and lip appliers from Alaska Metropolitan, also offered at the MBAF. The eye glitter is especially appealing with this look. I love Alaska’s makeup!

I went over to Baja Norte to enjoy the breeze and the ocean waves in this gorgeous dress from Flutter Memel. With a beautifully fashionable cut, it has gorgeous textures and a look that can take you from the beach to a party. She has created the dress in two colorways with a great HUD. I accessorized with jewelry from AvaGardner Kungler for On9. I especially love the texture of the gems. Strappy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo that are new at her store echo the square cut of the front of the skirt. My favorite part of my look is the smallest part—my nails. AlaskaMetro has been inspired by Hokusei and kimono patterns for some exquisite nail appliers she is featuring at the Bon Voyage event.

Sweet Life

I have once again put on the beautiful Destiny mesh head from Catwa Clip for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. Nicole Button has released a new skin that includes a lovely lip and beautiful eyes. Applied to this head, it’s a gorgeous look, especially with the optional makeups. KateForster Akina has made this great up-do for Hairology with two top knots. It comes with or without bangs. I thought the sexy fringe of bangs over my beautiful eyes from lonlysoule for the AnyBody event added a sultriness to my look.

Approaching midnight

~ “Lit Up” by Jean Tonique

Lit Up

I donned this dress from Unitedcolorsteam for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, clicked in the sexy taupe color and dark metal harness and medallions and I was lit up and ready to go out. It fits my new Belleza Isis body perfectly. I applied Zozicon’s sexy nail polish for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair to match. With sexy lace-up boots from TomClaney and a graphic bracelet from Marcopol Oh for Shiny Shabby, I went over to Elysion and lit myself up on the stage there.

Lit Up

I am wearing Catwa Clip’s Destiny mesh head again. I promise I will change soon but this skin from Deesselle Destiny looks so perfect. I simply clicked and applied and then got the applier for the Belleza body. Shylah Honey made this gorgeous tumble of curls and waves for this round of Fameshed and with this particular texture, it’s gorgeous.

Compliments

“It is a great mistake for men to give up paying compliments, for when they give up saying what is charming, they give up thinking what is charming.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Compliments

I don’t hand out compliments thoughtlessly. I hate coming off as a sycophant or as insincere. I think most folks get that when I say something complimentary, I mean it. (It’s a Midwestern thing.) That being said, I got the lucky chance to be a blogger for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, and I have been trying to show a few things that have come through for the event. I didn’t get the full import of the event, however, until I got a preview. I really have to compliment the organizers (mainly LilDaria, the owner of the Mesh Body Addicts blog, and Ravenwings). The layout is shopping friendly without a lot of silly décor, walls, paths or other obstacles. The designers are allowed to have more than just an exclusive piece, so there is lots of shopping fun. And the line-up is freakin’ fantastic with such big hitters as Maitreya, Belleza, Catwa, Blueberry, and others participating. Even better, there are some newcomers and lesser-known names joining in, and that’s what makes it so exciting. For once it seems like no one was excluded for any other reason than they don’t do original stuff for mesh bodies. It doesn’t feel cliquey, it’s professional, and it seems everyone has put their best (mesh) foot forward with every single store filled. No small feat. Well done!

Exciting news out of Belleza too, as Tricky Boucher has released an update to the Belleza bodies with a redesigned HUD, an alternate body that takes down the graphic resources used (called Lite), and several new rigging and body part updates that make this body sleeker and better (including a seemingly seamless neck). Most importantly, the body is an UPDATE, which means no additional cost accrues to those who already own the body. That’s a big deal because Tricky derives no immediate benefit from all this work except hopefully new sales to people who will weigh the improvements against other bodies and purchase new. It’s really quite generous. Worn with one of Shyla’s recent appliers for Fifty Linden Friday, it’s a gorgeous look top to bottom. (Please note I am wearing Catwa Clip’s newest mesh head, featured at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, one that I have been raving about for the past couple days. Looks awesome with Shyla’s applier and fits the Belleza body absolutely perfectly.)

Compliments

I wore this dress from Sukoshitosuto from the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, a darling number that can you around the grid and fits the Belleza Isis body perfectly. Many creators have foregone making stuff for Belleza bodies and I hope they get back to it because it’s a great body and as I understand, the designer pack is easier to use than others. Shoes from Equitum, which are featured at Tres Chic, fit the Belleza feet and add prettiness to my look.

I hunted down the pretty necklace Crashnoww has in his gacha at The Epiphany and wore AvaGardner Kungler’s newest earrings for the Cosmopolitan Room, glamorous and pretty with this look. Finally, Elikapeka Tiramisu’s ponytail for Shiny Shabby is a simple and pretty look for getting around the grid.

Intelligent Life

“I’m sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It’s just been too intelligent to come here.”― Arthur C. Clarke

Intelligent Life

With the Brexit vote recently and people still supporting Donald Trump, you really have to wonder if there is intelligent life on this planet. I am guessing another planet hosts smarter (and sexier) beings. My sexier smarter being took a trip to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, which is the best place to be as it opens today. Mimikri Kit has made this cosmic peekaboo dress in several colors with a matching thong and optional tintable pasties. It is made to fit several mesh bodies and system bodies. Nuria Augapfel has created these amazing shoe/boots for the Fair with a HUD to change the inner portion of the wrap around areas to lace or fishnet.

Intelligent Life

My inspiration to be alien came from Nethya Emor’s skin featured at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a blue and subtle pink tint to it, it gives an otherworldly look to an avatar. I applied it on the Catwa Destiny mesh head from the Fair (which seems stuck to me now), though it comes with Omega, TMP and many body appliers. I paired it with the darling braids MissAllSunday Lemon is featuring at Uber. They come with a hat that fits perfectly on this hair but it can be worn without (as I show here). Funky earring cuffs from Celena Galli at Cosmopolitan Room finish my look.

I ran over to Templemore again today to take my photos because Luis has laid down some cool things. I found a great little house that I will be camping in (unbeknownst to Luis). The Mesh Body Addicts fair opens August 1, and I put together this outfit from several pieces from the Fair. Romi Dagostino has this darling top and shorts set, available in several colorways, featured at the Fair. I clicked around to find the colors I liked and wore the two together. With a bow on the front of the shorts, they are cute but definitely not girly. I matched up high heels for the Fair from Diamanda Allen that include a versatile color HUD and matched the studs to my awesome multi-layer necklace from Mirja Mills for We <3 RP. Aikea Reiko made awesome earrings for Shiny Shabby.

Unforgiving Girl

I couldn’t help but use Catwa Clip’s new Destiny head for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair again. I love trying different skins on the head to see how they will look. Everything comes out looking great! Today’s choice is a great applier from Nicole Button. With her handy makeup HUD, I was able to add a fresh look without being overdone. Kuranosuke Kamachi’s gorgeous locks for Tres Chic complete the look.
