Look Into My Eyes

Look Into My Eyes

Look into my eyes, let them hypnotize
These eyes long to make you a perfect work of art

Fall in love with me only then you’ll see
What these eyes have been planning for you

~ “Look Into My Eyes” by Janelle Monae

Look Into My Eyes

A dramatic song from Janelle Monae suits this gorgeous dress from Kiddo Oh, one that she sold at Fashion for Life to benefit charity and now presumably has at her store. (It came and went without a chance to get to it!) With the skirt cut up my thigh, it has a touch of Moulin Rouge, especially with the cut-open back. The dress comes with a HUD that allows you to change the texture of the top to suit your skin tone, making it lie beautifully against your body (be it mesh or system). Big bowed stilettos from Bens Beauty for Slink high feet—a whole set of colors in one pack for one low price—are found at Fi*Friday.

And once again I show the LeLutka mesh head, worn on my standard shape with the Maitreya mesh body. Here you can see the detailing up close. You can also see MissAllSunday Lemon’s gorgeous updo for Uber with her beautiful textures and AvaGardner Kungler’s gorgeous earrings for Cosmopolitan Room.

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.

“When I learned about the gray existing between the black and white of absolute terms, I began to experience more peace. The more I expanded my gray areas (more than 50 shades), the more peace I experienced in my life.” ~ David W. Earle

In the Middle of Black and White

I assembled a black and white look today that is not really so black and white. First a cute minidress from Aikea Reiko, who always offers her mesh pieces in tons and tons of great textures, including this great pinstripe. My jewelry from Maxi Gossamer for Shiny Shabby has texture change options for each feather and the beads so you can assemble a funky look in a variety of color combos. My shoes are Glamistry’s 21Shoe exclusive for TODAY ONLY. It includes two awesome textures in gold and silver, which you can mix and match to make an awesome look. Of course, I chose all silver for the almost black-and-white look.

In the Middle of Black and White

Aleida Rhode is offering this awesome hand-drawn skin at Skin Fair. It comes with appliers for everything and options for brow color and style plus freckles or not. These are more natural freckles than many, covering the body as well as the face. I put on glossy lipstick from Constance Daehlie to up my look. Queue Marlowe’s poofy floofy corkscrew curls complete the look, and I chose one of her ombre mixes to make it really pop.

Irish Spring

Irish Spring

St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.  ~ Adrienne Cook

Irish Spring

My kid’s birthday is tomorrow on St. Patricks’ Day. I never thought very hard about the significance of this until he got older and I realized his birthday was always the cross from winter into spring. After his birthday, it was bound to never snow and never get below zero. I am counting on him to hold open the door to spring again.

I am looking forward to the daffodils and narcissus blooming, so I carry one from Taiko McCaw from her gacha at Luck of the Irish. I dressed accordingly in a green dress from Azure Electricteeth from Collabor88, one that is off the shoulder so I can show off my beautiful claddagh set from Abraxxa Anatine. She has put scripts in the jewelry so you can choose from a number of stones and gold or silver, of course, allowing you to avoid yet another HUD. The set includes a necklace, earrings and ring and there is a necklace available for gentlemen as well. My cute little shoes are VaVaVaVixen’s flats at Luck of the Irish.

Irish Spring

I feel fresh and beautiful in Nicole Button’s amazing new skin for Skin Fair. Her skins are all hand-drawn and so amazingly detailed and lovely with gorgeous features. This skin, in particular, has pretty bow-shaped lips that have an exquisite outline to accent their prettiness and the luster so indicative of Nicole’s work. The skins come with appliers for just about anything you can think of, including the Eve body. It looks fantastic on the Maitreya body, as you can see. Bubbles Clawtooth is in this round of Kustom 9 and she is offering two casual and pretty styles this month, ideal for dress up or every-day casual.

Irish Eyes

You can’t kiss an Irish girl unexpectedly. You can only kiss her sooner than she thought you would. ~ Irish saying

Irish Eyes

I thought my pretty girl today should be tagged an “Irish lass,” mostly because of the green of her dress and the season. Mami Jewell just released this beautiful gown, a mix of mesh and sculpty and flexi prim, employing the best of each. The main gown is a perfect corseted bodice over a long skirt with a nicely made skirt, all in mesh. Then Mami pumps it up with a few great optional attachments, like the rose-crowned translucent train that floats around the body. The movement of those pieces makes all the difference and it’s hard to notice they are flexi prims (beyond their movement) because Mami has so skillfully built and textured them. I complimented the look with AvaGardner Kungler’s beautiful necklace for the Instruments.

Irish Eyes

Skin Fair opens very soon, kids, and June Salmson has worked her heart out on two new skins to be shown there. I am wearing Jessica, which comes with appliers for everything you would ever need them, including the Maitreya body, which I am wearing. I added June’s pretty beauty mark to the look and enjoyed the simple elegance of her skin. My hair is Shylah Honey’s gacha item for The Luck of the Irish. The bonus to this hair is that it comes with a detachable spray of hair that makes this either a lovely long look, cinched in back or a bun. And the bun is the best feature. It’s a Celtic knot, perfect for your Irish lass look or frankly, any look you want to make elegant.

“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” ~  Yves Saint-Laurent

In the Flesh

Psst… guess what’s coming soon. Skin Fair! Yep. So you’re gonna see a lot more of me “in the flesh,” as it were as I show off the fine aspects of the different skins being offered. Ergo, lingerie is in order, and Mariska Simons has come out with this fabulous and sexy little turquoise set, all on appliers in the many pieces you might want including garters, exposed demi bra, stockings, panties, thong. Appliers are included for every major mesh body part you need.

Maxi Gossamer has issued a romantic necklace and earrings for Collabor88, a secret love letter in a locket. I wonder who it’s from? I snuggled up in the bed that Cory Edo made for Fameshed, one of her fantastic pieces that includes seemingly a bazillion texture change options and poses. I rolled around in the soft texture-change sheets and loved every minute of it!

In the Flesh

The news is, of course, skins, and I start with this fantastic skin from Toxxic Rhiannyr. I tripped across her store and I was excited to see a new-to-me skin maker with some fantastic work put into her skins. The thing I hear most from the Skinnies (as we call the folks in the Skin Addiction chat) is that the devil’s in the details, and Toxxic has taken care of those details. It shows on the body applier, on the hands, on the navel, breasts, and arms and legs—places where people often neglect to do the hard work to make the skin look good. And Toxxic’s face is sublime with well-place features and a lovely glow and beautiful, soft lips. I think I will be checking out more for Toxxic’s work in the future. This is a definite “find” at the Skin Fair this year.

I don’t want to wrap up without mentioning Constance Daehlie’s gorgeous eyes for Skin Fair, crystalline with tiny pupils and a very realistic reflection. My nails are also from Constance, these at Anybody, a gorgeous lacy pattern that offers a variety of looks. My big bright blue eyes go so beautifully with Truth Hawks’ new hair in blonde, a casual sexy cut that, as always, has his fabulous textures.

Your Fire at Your Desire

Your Fire at Your Desire

Her weapon were her crystal eyes
Making ev’ry man mad;
Black as a dark night she was,
Got what no one else had.
Wow!

She’s got it,
Yeah, baby, she’s got it.
Well, I’m your Venus,
I’m your fire at your desire.

~ “Venus” by Shocking Blue

Your Fire at Your Desire

I debated which version of this song to feature, but the one by Shocking Blue had to win because it was the original. This is a look that fell into place and the song came right to mind. First I got this great dress from Mariska Simons, a sexy wrap dress with bejeweled straps and a great texture change HUD that allows five texture choices and four choices for the jewels. With great shadowing and textures, it’s drop-dead sexy. I paired it with great platform shoes from Tatyana Ultsch that she is featuring at Vanity Fair, which include a HUD with what seem a kazillion texture possibilities. I included two jewelry pieces I picked up at the Dressing Room Fusion—a great cuff from AvaGardner Kungler and big terrific earrings from Ekilem Melodie.

Your Fire at Your Desire

Inka Mexicola has come out with a new skin, delectable and dreamy and a perfect palette for dressing up with makeup from Constance Daehlie. I love Constance’s luscious lips and her perfection with eye makeup liners. My high ponytail from MissAllSunday Lemon is a welcome change to the long hair styles all over the place, a great look with bangs for a sexy, almost-domme look. Sexy poses from Nancoix Urquan and Tracy Redangel make it all come together.
