Birthday Buddies

The SL12B celebration for the community is almost over but there are still a few days to get some of the great things from the SLBig Hunt and the freebie areas on the sims, including your own KittyCat, made especially for the birthday. KittyCats employed the colors of the logos to decorate the kitties.

I am also using this chance to check the flexibility of Tricky Boucher’s newest mesh bodies. I made my avatar a curvier girl—not in the distorted idea of large butt and breasts and tiny waist but a viably larger girl with full hips and belly, arms and legs. I tried all three bodies on and saw how each could work but the Isis fit best under this dress from Marcopol Oh from Shiny Shabby, which I wore in large. “Fit” means that I could use the alphas in a way that allowed the body to look reasonable and believable with the dress. Freya’s legs were just too thick to work with the dress (though it was perfectly viable). The Venus gave a nice shape too though it seems Isis has a wee bit more booty, which I liked.

I am wearing the absolutely lovely Amelia skin from Shyla Diggs, which looks gorgeous on my fuller face with its lovely features and makeup. Shylah Honey’s darling hair for Fameshed makes my look pretty and classy. I love the curls and the pinned bangs. This hair can easily be retro as well as contemporary. This posing blanket is from Olaenka Chesnokov and will be available for FLF. It has texture change and many cute poses.

A cute necklace and bracelet set from Maxi Gossamer at Uber fit wonderfully as did the initial ankle bracelet from Natalee Oodles from Shiny Shabby, which I had to resize up to fit my ankle and it looks terrific. Glamistry is still making shoes that fit Belleza feet and you can see even with filling out my shape, my ankles look beautiful.

A short-as-can-be mini dress,and I am hoping to have a party! This great strappy leather dress with a wonderful tie up the back comes from Beanster Potato, a lot of mesh goodness in a very small package. And as always, Beanster includes a texture change HUD for five looks. I matched it up with the heels Glamistry offered for 21 Shoe. You can’t get these colors anymore but you can get this sexy platform shoe at his store. My unicorn horn from Maxi Gossamer for this month’s Collabor88 is my favorite piece of luck.

Shylah Honey made this fabulous hair for the Fantasy Collective and with its literally flowing locks, it is perfect for mermaids but also for a girl who is going out and wants a little fun in her look, especially with dyed ends. Sawsan Secretspy has made this gorgeous skin for the Designers Circle. I put it on and the dewy skin, the soft and glossy lips, the exquisite eyes—they begged me to take them out to party. I did!

Another Life

Another Life

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.”  ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

Another Life

A few weeks ago I was asked to review the Altamura mesh body. I had never worn a mesh body before, so it was a new thing for me. Put on the full body alpha, wear the mesh, adjust shape, fiddle with HUD. I wore the fitted mesh body over my shape, found it looked kind of wrong, and I wore the shape supplied with the mesh body. Tall, lithe, model-like, I adjusted the shape a few more times and saw a very new me.

With a HUD that allows for alpha removal, hand and feet changes within two screens, it was relatively easy to click into a look. Click on alphas to remove spots and I was good to go.

Another Life

I wore this fabulous lace halter mesh dress from Ariadna Garrigus, slipped on Slink-ready shoes from Yani Trice, plopped a hair from Chiaki Xue on my head and great earrings from Maxi Gossamer. Everything fit with minimal effort on my part. Instant glamour!

Another Life

Except…. it was not me. The face, while beguiling, includes a darling lip biting animation if you wear the animated mesh head. But it can not be altered, adjusted, or otherwise changed. There is no accompanying make-up. (I am guessing the creator was planning on allowing appliers.) It’s an attractive face—the most attractive of the ones offered from Altamura but in wearing it, I realized the soul of “me” as an avatar was my face, especially since I take so many face shots. When I show skins in on my blog, I never change my shape. It’s a litmus test for the skin. So I am very attached to that face and seeing another one is very unnerving.

However, if I wanted to be someone else, have another life, this may be the way to go.
