More dispatches from Hair Fair.

LeLutka at Hair Fair 2015

The hits, they keep on coming. How often have you heard something silly like that on the radio, but in this case it’s true. Today’s hit are the hairs Thora Charron is offering at Hair Fair. It’s a treat every year to see what she comes up with because her hair releases are not frequent, so a whole set of them sets the grid afire.

And it’s with reason everyone’s so excited. Thora has again presented a strong collection, hairs which are elegant yet casual, go-tos for every day use. With individual tendrils and locks of hair curling around, differentiated waves and pretty

Of course I had to try the hairs with a LeLutka head and I opted for one of Monicuzza Babenco’s appliers, which is available at Shiny Shabby for the last days of the event before it recycles. My top is part of a darling dress Kiddo Oh is featuring at Mesh Avenue, one that includes a HUD for changing the belt colors. It’s great to see Kiddo doing casualwear as well as formal.

Over and Over Again

Over and Over Again

“Fashion has a right to exist, because it permits the people to define themselves over and over again.” ~ Ann Demeulemeester

Over and Over

This month’s Shiny Shabby opened with a bang, and no wonder, since the fashions are inspired, in part, by Ann Demeulemeester (which explains all the bold shapes and dark colors). There quite a few good picks, so this month of blogging is going to be very pleasurable. First is this asymmetrical dress from Kiddo Oh, available in three colors and very much Demeulemeester-ish. Add Senzati0n Domenitzo’s amazing ankle-wrapped heels and wire and glass rings from Sigifaust, and you have a designer look for your travels about SL. (See at the bottom where I took this look dancing at the DJ Stage at SL12B.) I have set the stage with décor from Imokon Neox, also available at Shiny Shabby. Fashionable poses from Katya Valeska can be found there too.

Over and Over

Monicuzza Babenco has once again created an applier for the LeLutka mesh head that does a beautiful job of embellishing the features of the face in the best light. I loved the choices of lipstick and the artistic eye makeups available with the applier and will certainly be using this photogenic fashion set over and over. My easy-going, lush hair comes courtesy of Kuranosuke Kamachi, with a great color palette available. Both are also available at Shiny Shabby.

Clematis

Clematis

The common hill-flowers wither, but they blossom again. The laburnum will be as yellow next June as it is now. In a month there will be purple stars on the clematis, and year after year the green night of its leaves will hold its purple stars. But we never get back our youth. ~ Oscar Wilde

Clematis

Finally the flowers are out! I have been taking walks and snapping photos left and right of people’s gorgeous gardens. By the end of August. I hope my clematis climbs as high as the one Lilith Heart is selling at Fameshed. The detail for such low land impact is amazing.

Kiddo Oh’s gorgeous dress for the Cosmopolitan Room is a lovely full mesh piece that evokes dresses young ladies wore for cotillions but with a sexy twist in skirt cut up to there and side panels cut to the waist. With a delicate crystal embellishment along the bodice, it comes in four lovely shades, but I thought this delicate shade was perfect.

Clematis

Bubbles Clawtooth came out with this retro style for Collabor88, available with or without bangs and with a nice texture-change bow. I think my mom wore a style very similar to this in the early 60s and it suits this ball gown just fine when one thinks of the last bloom of innocence in a young woman. My pretty skin is Inka Mexicola’s lovely new skin, available in her store with all the eyebrow shades you can shake a stick at. As always, her eyes are soulful with thick groomed brows and a piquant smile.

To Fly

To Fly

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

To Fly

It’s time for a little springtime fantasy, and Kiddo Oh’s sexy wrapped dress starts it off with beautiful side cut-outs for a bit of peekaboo. Joined with AvaGardner Kungler’s necklace for the Cosmopolitan Room and a crown from YukaChoco Magic from the Fantasy Collective (which closes soon!) and here we have a gorgeous otherworldly princess, one who still flies, especially with her darling pet by Sh0rtie, also from the Fantasy Collective. (The wings flap most delightfully as it sits on your shoulder!)

To Fly

M4ri1yn Magic made this very photogenic mesh hair for the Shiny Shabby event. It comes in the many colors and textures he offers with his hair on a handy HUD. However, I show it here in an ethereal white.

And the genesis of the look was, of course, Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy skin for the LeLutka mesh heads. With 10 brow choices in black and white (which includes fantasy designs like the dots on my head and chin), 10 eye makeups and 10 lipsticks, it’s a beautiful fantasy applier for the mesh heads. Three tones are available: drow, vamp and then this grayish fantasy tone, which she calls “Zafiro.” She also includes eyes and body appliers, so I was able to put together this whole gorgeous look, and I had a great time testing out the many looks available. What a beautiful way to make a fantasy fly!

Sweet Spring

Sweet Spring

sweet spring is your

~ e.e. cummings

Sweet Spring

Spring is here and though the air is still brisk, the sun is shining and crocuses are popping out and the grass is getting green! Everything in life is about change and spring is a heady reminder of that. I wore this lovely dress from Kiddo Oh, featured for a Ferosh spring fashion spread, to celebrate the season. With flounces and ribbon details, it’s almost like a piece of Regency-era fashion but with a lingerie twist. Kiddo does all her mesh herself as well as her textures, so you know you have a very original piece when you purchase. You can find this and other pieces from the collection in a special tent at the slurl I provide.

Sweet Spring

For the Spring version of Season’s Story, Shylah Diggs made this lovely hair with a flowered headband, which includes just a headband, the flowers  or just the hair. You get a HUD to change colors so you can match it up with what you’re wearing (as I did). My skin is Aleida Rhode’s newest, fresh and beautiful for spring with hand-drawn textures and a sophistication that many skins lack. Aleida includes appliers for what seems is every known mesh out there, so you can wear it with your mesh body, as I did with the Maitreya body.

Fairy Season

Fairy Season

Every time a child says “I don’t believe in fairies” there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead. ~ J.M. Barrie

Fairy Season

If any season is the time for fairies, this is the one, where leaves start to bud on the trees and little blooms poke their heads up and raindrops wash the front lawn green. So this fairy look is entirely appropriate, inspired by the wings that Kiddo Oh made to go with the pretty frock she is featuring at We <3 RP. Now I can see this dress as a potential summer dress or a nightgown but she decided to make it a pretty fairy look, so I dressed it up with applier stockings from BigBeautifulDoll, foot straps from Berta Avro and a pretty necklace that includes a great HUD from NatiWilliams from Chapter Four.

Fairy Season

Of course, Shyla Diggs’ gorgeous skin for Uber lends the sort of ethereal touch this look needs, especially with her soft tones and beautiful features. I love how Shyla always gives a thumbnail of the makeup offerings with her fatpacks and gives her lipsticks to add on so you can swap out looks while keeping the same aesthetic. Santana Lumiere has created appliers for the Belleza mesh hands, which I am so happy to be able to use, especially with her gorgeous textures.

My hair is Truth Hawks’ newest, a romantically pulled back long wavy look with a gorgeous fullness to it, especially when it’s crowned by Persefona’s lovely hair piece from the Fantasy Collective, which has a great menu to allow color change for all the different pearl sets.

~ “Stephanie Says” by the Velvet Underground

Stephanie Says

I heard this Velvet Underground song while I was preparing the photos for this blog entry and thought she looked like a Stephanie. So Stephanie says you need to get over to Fantasy Collective and get this lovely dress form Kiddo Oh, make of her custom mesh with her gorgeous satiny textures, imprinted with a Celtic pattern at the waistline and cut up the side in a very sexy way. Paired with a gorgeous choker from LouLou Teichmann from Shiny Shabby and Senzati0n Domenitzo’s generous donation shoes for Fashion for Life, it’s a sexy look.

Stephanie Says

It’s also a fantasy look, made mostly so with this incredible skin from Aikeo Reiko that she is selling at Skin Fair. Aikeo never does anything mainstream though her work is incredibly popular. This fantasy skin is luscious and sexy as if for one of the alien girls Captain Kirk might seduce with the veins or cracks in the skin texture. I wore Marisa Karu’s gorgeous hair for Shiny Shabby in platinum to bring another touch of otherworldliness to the look and with the texture-change scripts in the hair band and flowers, made a lovely customized look.

La Parisienne

La Parisienne

The figure of the Minoan woman… was very similar to the female shape that came into fashion during the late 1800s C.E….. In fact, so close were Minoan fashions to popular French fashions of the 1800s that one of the women in an ancient Minoan painting was nicknamed “La Parisienne” (the woman of Paris) by those who discovered her.
~
www.fashionencyclopedia.com

La Parisienne

The dress Kiddo Oh made for the Fantasy Collective was inspiration for my blog entry title. Topless, the dress includes some beautiful traditional fashion motifs but with  unexpected baring. Being this a family blog, I don’t show full on toplessness, but you can get the jist of it. I love how Kiddo has fashioned the trail of ruffles along the back, the amazing corset laced in back with a fashionable belt around the middle and a darling bolero, as if this is just another dress.

I accessorized with Kikunosuke Eel’s beautiful jewelry set for Shiny Shabby. With several pendants, this necklace of beads and elegantly fashioned earrings and bracelet, the set is worth having. I especially love the fashioning of the clasps and the settings.

La Parisienne

A new set of skins has come out from sugarbrownie, the brand is doing a full-on push to be noticed. I rather like the skins but see in them the hallmarks of a new creator. The body needs a bit more development and perhaps a reworking of the look of the lips (which have a bit much white highlighting and lack the matteness I prefer). The features are well placed and nicely done, especially the nose and blush. And this creator includes appliers for everything. I decided to go a bit avant garde to match this dress with an updo from Boo Nakamura, which gives a beautiful not-quite-real asymmetry to this look. Ah, she is a Parisienne—elegant and sexy.

Magic

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~ W.B. Yeats

Magic

I wanted to share this beautiful dress because it has a certain magic. Kiddo Oh creates her own custom mesh and has translated her skills to making absolutely gorgeous evening gowns, combining translucent laces with frills and satin. I am so lucky to be showing this gown because it is a review copy of only 100 that will be sold at the Luxury Fashion Fair, where all the pieces being sold are limited. This is an awfully gorgeous piece to be limited to 100 on the grid with the lace top, pink buttons running down the back, pink satin ribbon around the waist and skirt and beautiful frills, and all this done completely in mesh!

Magic

Nicole Egozy has finally come out with her newest skin and it’s absolutely gorgeous. With fine, exquisite features, the skin includes a ton of appliers (though none for favorite mesh bodies—yet). She also includes a variety of tattoos with cleavage, eyebrows, hair bases, and other layers to help match mesh pieces to the body. I added an eyeliner to dress up the skin, which is a gorgeous palette for makeup layers. Kikunosuke Eel has had a sale going on, which I ran to, of course, because he will be retiring pieces soon. I am not sure if this set of earrings is included, but make sure you get there. And MissAllSunday Lemon’s lovely side-swept curls is an elegant alternative to wearing an updo with a formal dress. I chose this pretty pink to highlight the colors of the ensemble.
