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.

Xoxo,

from Making Shapes to Dressing your Shape

it's a HooT by you.

Averie Larnia of Hourglass Shapeshas been playing around in Photoshop, and that is a good thing for us! She made a bunch of cute T-Shirts with little animals and yummy foods in bright colors, perfect for the Spring season that is right around the corner. Seen above are the Purple Ice CreamPink Kitty, and Pink Cookie tee’s. I paired them with Decoy’s Flava Pop overalls and the MultiColor PornStars.

 

I tried to do a close-up, but yay! SL is having it’s disappearing prim issue again. I wanted to show you the eyes that Averie also designed. They are called Starry Eye and have little stars in them. I’m wearing them in Gray. Also, ellabella (whose piercings I adore because she includes copies made to attach to the mouth, nose, and chin!) sent out the cutest group gift- a piercing called Rainbow Raving.

 

Check out Averie’s shapes and new shirts and eyes at her various Hourglass locations!

*Boom* Days: day one

I'm Blue by you.

Aranel Ah, the designer behind *Boom*,has been kind enough to drop a few of his new releases on me. I hadn’t heard of the store before now, but it has slid into my list of stores to check out when I’m in the need for separates. While this clothing line isn’t huge, yet, it shows a lot of promise. Instead of just throwing up pics of all the products I’ve been sent to review at one time, I decided to make four days worth of outfits out of the pieces I’ve received. So, here is day one.

I'm Blue by you.

The Alice Sweateris a dressier sweater with a v-neck. I’ve chosen to show the Navy version, but it comes in other dark colors perfect for winter. The sweater includes prim attachments at the neck and the sleeves. The texture is extremely realistic, and the sweater actually looks like it would be soft to the touch.

I'm Blue by you.

I paired the sweater with Digit Darkes’ Developer Pants. They were originally only included in an outfit with Sasy’s Corsets, but since Digit always listens to her customers, she released them as separates. I picked the limited edition L’Via L’Viauez  skin from Hourglass Shapes and lessthan3, because of the beautiful blue make-up around the eyes. There are only 50 editions of this skin made, and there are still some available at the mainstores for Hourglass and lessthan3. They won’t last much longer, so go grab yours!

 

For details on the other styles pictured, check on down below. And, keep your eyes open for day two of *Boom*.

Xoxo,

Tiffer GG

Decoding Twilight: Bella

 We have finally reached the end of my little Twilightseries. I hope you all have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed putting it together! With just a little over 12 hours until the movie opens (squeals like a schoolgirl), it is time to meet our lead character, Bella Swan.

Bella (Casual Look) by you.

The author of the series, Stephanie Meyers, doesn’t go into too much detail of Bella’s appearance. She wanted it to be easier for the readers to step into the characters shoes. The description that she does give of Bella is that she is average height and weight, pale skin, and wide chocolate eyes. She has straight, dark brown hair and wears little make-up.

Bella (Casual Look) by you.

Choosing a shape for Bella was simple. Averie Larnia of Hourglass Shapesis also a fan of Twilight and made a dollarbie based on Bella as portrayed by Kristen Stewart in the movie. This is still available in store! I went with a skin from Rockberry’s Willowline again, because some of the make-up options were very low maintenance. The eyes are from Adam and EVE, called Turkish Delight. For the hair, I went with the Jessica style from ETD.

Bella (Casual Look) by you.

I chose to do two looks for Bella, the first being a casual look. The shirt is a simple long sleeve top from ETD. I chose these jeans from Kari because of the holes in them. Bella is extremely clumsy, so I imagined her jeans taking most of that damage. The boots are a warm, comfy pair of Ughs from Jeepers Creepers. I also grabbed a messenger bag fromSn@tch for Bella to throw all her school stuff in.

Bella's Prom Look by you.

My second look for Bella is her prom look. I used the same hair and shape. The skin is also fromRockberry’s Willow line, this one just has a little more make-up around the eyes. The most important part of Bella’s prom look, however, is the dress and the shoes.

Bella's Prom Look by you.

We get a brief description of Bella’s dress in the book, mainly that it has blue in it. The rest, I used my imagination. The book tells us that the dress is high-fashion, so I knew I had to go with a piece from Digit Darkes. This is theDinka dress, and I liked everything about it for Bella. The length I thought was great, and the draping around the waist. I also loved the pattern, and that it wasn’t too much. As for Bella’s shoes, we do learn from the book that Alice forcing her into a pair of heels. These blue heels from Angels matched the dress perfectly.

Bella's Prom Look by you.

That’s the end! Keep scrolling on down for the complete style sheets for both looks, and also the songs that reminded me of Bella from the movie’s soundtrack. I hope that I have inspired some of you to try some of these fashions from SL, as well as to go read the Twilight series and/or see the movie!

Welcome to Twilight: Alice

Hi, my name is Tiffer, and I am addicted to Twilight. Part of what dragged me back to SL was the idea of doing a series with avatars based on the characters in the book. So, here is this series that I am giddy with excitement over doing!

If you have never heard of Twilight, first let me say Zomg! run to a bookstore ASAP! Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let me break down Twilight for ‘ya. Twilight is a series of books by Stephanie Meyers’ that focuses on a teenage romance between a human and a vampire. Kinda like a updated Romeo and Juliet, ‘cept with vampires and fights and werewolves. The first book, Twilight, is about to hit the big screen (7 days!!). The upcoming movie is what really drew me to do this series.

 Alice by you.

With the background of Twilight out of the way, let me get to my first character, Alice Cullen. Alice happens to be my personal favorite character, so I chose to do her first. Alice is described as very petite (under 5 feet), almost pixie like. She has short black hair, with Amber eyes (a Cullen family trait since they feed on animals instead of humans). She has a special ability of being able to see into the future. Out of all the characters in the series, she is the shopping addict (my kinda girl!).

Alice by you.

Let me start with the shape. I used a shape from my good friends shop, Averie Larnia. Her shop is called Hourglassand she designs shapes based on different skin lines. Oh, and she is having a sale NOW thru November 21st-everything buy one, get one free. The shape I am using happened to be from the Starlust Trash Hunt. It is from Hourglass’ Halloween series and is called Blue Blood-Alice (coincidence, I swear). The hair is from ETD. The style seemed perfect for Alice. The eyes are from a (new to me) store called Cipria Couture. The skin I am using, though not intended for the shape, is from a new fave of mine (also thanx to Averie!) Rockberry. This is from their Willow line.

Alice by you.

Since Alice resides in cold, rainy, cloudy Folks, Washington, I had to make sure I dressed her properly. This adorable coat is the Agent Debbie from Thimbles. The jeans are an old dollarbie from VG, and the shoes are one of the Heather Boots, one of the newer releases from ETD. I must also mention that all the poses I used are from Imperial Elegance– Sai P. is a fan of Twilight, as well, so it seemed fitting to use her poses.

 

Whew! That was probably the most I ever wrote in one blog! Hope you enjoyed it and keep your eyes opened for the rest of the series! Next is going to be Rosalie.

 

Xoxo,

Tiffer GG
