What Doesn't Show

I have to flash a photo of the HUDs piled up with windows on my screen, windlights set, inventory opened, and Callie and Aleida chatting with me. How does someone take a photo among all this?? Now you know some of what doesn’t show.

What does show is LeeZu Baxter succumbing to mesh bodies. Yes, folks, she has transferred some of her best system pieces, hand drawn, beautiful work, to mesh body appliers. I am so glad she did. LeeZu was always known for her gorgeous work, which was, before mesh came along, some of the most innovative and artistic on the grid. It was painful to have to pack it up when I decided to go all mesh body all the time. Now that’s not a problem. For example, I am wearing the incredible Monroe lingerie, a set I had long ago blogged on my system body in all its elegance and sexiness.

I thought the soft candlelight from Winter Thorn’s beautiful candle cages from her set at Collabor88 would lend some atmosphere. I applied Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous skin for the LeLutka mesh heads to another head in the set after my blog a week or so ago with the same skin was such a success. I think people are concerned they might all look alike with these mesh heads, and certainly with a certain male mesh head I see on the grid, that fear is justified, but with six heads already in the LeLutka collection, all modifiable by messing with head stretch and a plethora of skins already created to apply to these heads, I don’t think you need to worry about that. I applied the basic makeup to the eyes and Umazuma’s gift lipstick to create this look, after tweaking the blending and shimmer on the HUD. My super sexy hair is Bubbles Clawtooth’s beautiful offer for Kustom 9, a fitting style for this beautiful look.

My Name Is Red

My Name Is Red

“I’m so fortunate to be red! I’m fiery. I’m strong. I know men take notice of me and that I cannot be resisted.

I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”

~ “My Name is Red” by Orhan Pamuk

My Name Is Red

Barely sent me a snap of Ziki Questi in this dress and I had had HAD to have it. It’s a buy on Marketplace from LindaB Helendale, a mesh dress with color and texture change HUD for the little coins and links. With materials added to the mix, the whole piece is a sexy mod (modern, not modifiable) dress for the hottest nights out. It fit absolutely perfectly over the Belleza Mesh Body, which will be seeing developer kits (today!), updates to the current body, and new versions very very soon, according to Tricky Boucher (who has listened to all the feedback and wrapped in many new improvements). Join the Skin Addiction group to get the gossip!

My Name Is Red

I used the Omega Applier HUD to wear my great underwear, which was designed originally for PhatAzz. With a little swapping of scripts and the additional HUD for the Belleza body, I was in business. My gorgeous sexy shoes are Nardya Rousselot’s stilettos, which she has made for Slink or Belleza feet.

Shyla Diggs’ new Grace skin matches the body perfectly, of course, and completely fits because it’s as sexy as sexy gets. I wore one of the lipstick tattoos and added a whole lot of sexy in one click. Truth Hawks recently presented this new, sexy long hair with bangs, which flows down in straight but sexy locks.
