Skin & Shape Expo: Round 2

These 3 skins really prove how different a skin can make you look. I did not alter my shape (custom from Hourglass Shapes <3) at all for any of these skins, and in each pic I look like a totally different avi. I love it!

Skin Fair: Take 2 by you.

League “Skin Pale- Misty- Classic Dark Bald BT”

I have been wanting a League skin for a bit now, and was just waiting for an excuse to but one. The Skin & Shape Expo seemed like that perfect excuse! This is Misty in Classic Dark, shown in the Pale tone. I like that the face is very simple and the body is perfect. Check out those boobs! The cleavage option is oh-so-sexy!

Skin Fair: Take 2 by you.

Pink Fuel “Honey- Beesting (dkbrow)”

Part of me really didn’t want to get the Pink Fuel skin because of how it is already everywhere. But, after demo’ing it, I got the hype. The face on Pink Fuel’s Beesting (shown in the Honey tone with Dark Brows) is just really sweet and innocent. And, omg! the lips! The gloss is so shiny it looks like if I kissed the screen some would rub off on my lips.

Skin Fair: Take 2 by you.

Adam n Eve “Portia- Tone 1 Dark- Marmalade”

Adam n Eve’s Portia is my first skin from the brand ever. It is not typically a skin I would go for, but I really loved how different it made my avatar look. This is the Marmalade make-up in Tone 1. To me, this is a skin that would be great for models, as it really makes you appear long and lean. I feel like I gained a bit of height wearing this skin! The shading on the body is beautiful, and overall this is just a really well-made skin, and more than likely will be my first of many more skins from Adam n Eve.

Also pictured are lingerie from Cupcakes (in Pics 1 & 2) and Armidi (seen in Pic 3), Hair from Magika, and Poses from Striking Poses.

Skin & Shape Expo: Round One

My first trip to the Skin and Shape Expowas this past weekend and I really only planned on doing 3 things there during trip one: grab freebies, grab demo’s, and buy Tuli’s Bella (since she was kind enough to send her group members the demo). I accomplished all of that, as well as bought Rockberry’s latest release. Here are my first 3 picks from the fair (in no particular order), with more to come as soon as I grab my linden and head back!

Skin Fair: Exodi by you.

Exodi “Lily- Frosted Dove (Skin Fair Freebie)”

This is Exodi’s gift at the fair, Lily “Frosted” shown in Dove. I am a fan of Exodi’s skins, but since I’m not a fan of modding my shape, not all of them look right on me. This one is gorgeous, though! And, I love the fact that the free skin is in a make-up that is actually simple and can be worn “everyday.”Skin Fair: Tuli by you.

Tuli “Bella- Sophia Pale”
The one thing I knew I *HAD* to buy at the Skin & Shape Expo, Tuli’s Bella! Bella was released at the fair and at the moment there are only 3 (or is it 4?) make-ups available, out of which I choose Sophia in the Pale tone. Tuli skins are my all-time favorite and are always my go-to skin. Bella is perfect without being perfect, which is what really makes a great skin. The Sophia make-up is also a favorite style of mine, smoky eyes and pale lips.

Skin Fair: Rockberry by you.

Rockberry “Farrah- Tattoed Natural”

I spied Rockberry’s Farrah on the feeds and knew I was going to buy it without waiting to see the demo rez on me. I am a tattoo girl in both lives, and sometimes it can be hard to wear them iSL when styling certain outfits. So, when I saw that Farrah came in  a tattoo version, it was an instant must-have for me. Not to mention, there isn’t a Rockberry skin I haven’t liked and her prices are amazing!

a lil Review: lessthanthree “Phoebe”

A friend turned me on to lessthanthree’s skins awhile back. I’ve enjoyed watching the progress that Nykki Heartsdale has made on her skins- they literally get better and better with each release.

lessthanthree "Phoebe" by you.

Phoebe is inspired by 80’s icon Phoebe Cates– you know, the hot girl from Fast Times at Ridgemont High that many a boy, um, pleasured themselves to. The skin so far only comes in one tone and includes hair drawn on- which seems to be a new trend that many love. The makeups are totally 80’s and include fantastic eye makeups.  My favorite part of this skin? The lips! There are 8 makeup designs, just simply named 1-8. Enjoy pics of all of them below:

a lil Review: Envy Skins

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

Last week Kira Paderborn, the creator behind Shapes by Kira and Corrupted Innocence, released her first line of skins, Envy. Kira has been working on skins for around 2 years, but wasn’t satisfied enough with the product to release it until Envy.

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

Envy comes in six different make-ups. These are only the first makeups of two that Kira has promised, and are more basic. Above are make-ups B and C.

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

The makeups for E and F feature a bit more of a dramatic shadow than the rest of the styles.

a lil Review: Envy Skins by you.

The body on Envyis exceptional for any skin, especially for a first-time skin designer. Although you can’t really tell with my hair, the ears are great, along with the teeth, which are two areas I’ve noticed is missed on some skins. The body is soft and there is the right amount of definition in the places it matters most- such as the breast, belly button, stomach, and lower back.

 

The skins sell for 600L each or you can get the whole fat-pack for the amazing deal of 2400L. Kira also designed a shape specially made for the skins, which sells for 800L. You can find the skins at both Shapes by Kira and Corrupted Innocence.

a lil Review: 5th & Oxford

Over at Fleur, major changes are underway. First, is up is a new name: 5th & Oxford. Second, instead of just skins, Roslin and CJ will be focusing on creating a whole lifestyle line. What does that mean exactly, you ask? According to Roslin, it means the addition of male clothes and furniture. Also, there is a possibility of 5th & Oxford including male skins and prefabs to the new brand.

 

The first release under the re-branding will be their latest skin, Audrey. I didn’t think they would ever be able to beat the Allure skins, but they outdid themselves with Audrey. The skins are absolutely gorgeous and the makeup selections are fabulous! The makeups range from minimum to full on glam styles. Since pictures speak more than words, I will stop rambling now and show you what you really want!

a lil Review: Storin Umbrella Poses

storinrev by you.

I’ve been a fan of Storin’s poses for awhile now. In fact, I probably own 75% of them! Last week, Annah Whitfield dropped her latest set, Umbrella Poses, on me. I had so much fun shooting at the Cupcake SIM with these poses! The poses come with two umbrellas-one that is open (shown) and one that is closed (not shown). The umbrella’s can be re-textured to match any of your outfits. Shown above are the majority of the open umbrella poses, but also included in the pack are closed umbrella poses.

As for the clothes, the dress and shoes are RFL items. The dress is the Haver Tiered Flock from [W&B] and the shoes are the adorable Unique Birdie Kat Platforms from Kookie.

The other items are not pictured, but are worth a mention. The hair is from Dark Mouse and is the Isabella in Dark Black. The skin, as you would expect from me, is Tuli’s Faith in Classic. The bracelets are from [LeeZu] and are the laALa Bracelets shown in Wood. For any of the other items pictured, keep on scrolling below!

Xoxo,
