The Costume Ball has started! TP to the Ball. In this post I have one item from The Costume Ball to show you and also one from FAIR

This skin is called Alyx and it is the next line of skins from Pink Fuel. This is one of the Femme Fatale skins from The Costume Ball. There are two available, the second is Kumi in a dark tone.

The dress/ jacket is from Essences at FAIR. There are 5 different colours to choose from. I really like this dress/jacket, the only thing that bugs me is the invisible inside, it doesn’t work that well in photos. If I wasn’t using it as a main feature of the post, I would have edited it to hide the invisible sleeve. 

The hair is a group gift from Exile. I don’t know if it’s still in the past notices, some designers remove the gifts after they’ve been sent out. You’ll have to check :)

11th September

No doubt you’ve all read/ seen/ heard that Kumi has finally been released. Kumi is the new skin from Pink Fuel, the skin that we were first teased about over a year ago. It was definitely worth the wait! Thankfully, it looks beautiful on my avi (imo). When I buy full price skins, I tend to buy the most neutral, bare makeup one because it’s more versatile than one that already has makeup on. I mean no disrespect to the skin creators that work super hard to make beautiful makeup by doing this post. It’s purely to show alternatives to having to stick to one makeup option.
The thing with really popular skin releases, is that some shoppers are hesitant to buy the skins because lots of other people have it, which is fair enough (I’m guilty of this too). The great thing with Pink Fuel skins is that they do include a ton of different colour lipsticks, freckles and two eyebrow shapes.

I’ve created 5 different looks using the Kumi – Pure (dkbrow/crease) skin and makeup layers. (Scroll to the bottom for more writing & credits)

I’ve started with just the Kumi skin, there’s no extra makeup layers on the skin yet (only eyelashes). The eyelids do have a light shine to them already, like there’s very soft brownish eyeshadow. For the barely there look, I’ve added some freckles and beauty marks to add more depth to the skin (or just because I think they’re cute). I’ve also added eyeliner to the lower eyelid to make the eyes a bit more noticeable. There’s also light blusher and pale red lipstick to give the lips a bit of colour.  

The Party look is much bolder, but still has some softness to it. Thick black and pink eyeliner and clumpy eyelashes really make the eyes stand out. The blusher that sweeps down the cheekbones gives the face more definition and also makes the face look thinner. After studying the makeup for a while and trying different lipsticks, I felt that this one worked the best with the eye makeup.

The Glam look is a little more sophisticated than the previous three. I removed the pink from the lips and eyes and replaced them with red lipstick and black eyeliner. The lipstick instantly draws your eyes down to the lips. I also added the freckles and rosy blusher to soften the skin up.

Of course I had to have a Vamp look! Deep red lipstick, red blusher to highlight the cheekbones and dark, smokey gray and black eyemakeup.

8th September

Hi. It’s been a few days since my last post. Soz about that. I have news. I’m going on holiday for a week to Scotland. \o/ I leave on the 13th September and return on the 19th September. My dad moved to Isle of Arran month or so ago. I’m super excited but there’s NOTHING to do on the island! There’s a beach and lots of walks over hills and stuff. *Hopefully* the weather will be nice but I’m not counting on it. Probably won’t be swimming in the sea but I hope to see some otters. I’ll take photos and put them on my Flickr
Anyway, there’s me rambling on about a holiday when I have stuff to show you! First is this new top from C’est la vie. This was released yesterday. It’s rigged mesh and comes in sizes L,M,S,XS and XXS. I don’t know if these are based on the official Standard Sizing. There are 5 different colours to choose from and they all have this gorgeous multicoloured feather design on the front. See the colour options here. I may have to go back because I want them all! The trousers are from evolve for The Summer Harvest Hunt, along with the shoes from Elate, also in The Summer Harvest Hunt. The bag is from the new store Auxiliary, this version was a group gift and you can pick it up at the Aura mainstore. The group is free, but I think there will be fee when they officially open Auxiliary. The bracelets and earrings are also Auxiliary and you can buy them at the current round of Fameshed

3rd September

Today is Truth Hawks birthday. You know who he is right? No? Truth Hawks owns the fabulous hair store Truth. You must know the store since you’re a blog reader? :P His wifey, Kaelyn Alecto, thought of this great birthday gift idea for him, she wanted something more fun than a party, so she came up with the idea of taking pictures of his closest friends wearing his hairs. What started as a small gift turned into one GIANT one. Kaelyn has spent over a week taking pictures of 140 different people wearing his hairs! You can see them on her Flickr. Kudos to her dedication and hard work, I hope Truth cries with happiness when he sees it! 

In other news, The Summer Harvest Hunt has started. The top, shorts, bikini and jewellery are all gifts from the hunt.

30th August

Sorry for my lack of posts over the last few days. My store is moving, my club (well the club I manage) is moving and the sim is being revamped. It’s all go in sl. 

I’m taking a little break to show you some stuff from The Summer Harvest hunt that starts on September 1st. There are lots of late summer/ autumn gifts, lots of clothes, furniture, accessories and some poses/ props. There are a lot of mesh gifts too, in fact, over half the clothing items are mesh. I’m showing you three items from the hunt, the top from Sleeping Koala, the jeans from Vero Modero (that don’t include prim cuffs) and the bag from Tea Time. I love this bag.

Floral Summer

Hi guys! Sorry for my absence! My SL has been a tad bit busy! Most things are sorted/ work in progress, which means I can sneak in a bit of blogging this weekend. I have so much to show you! Some new events have started. First event is Fluid, it’s a bi- weekly, themed event for poses, animations, props and furniture. It’s an event organised by the Ego Co. team (more info of their blog). Another event that has started is the RMK Gothic SIM Bridal Fair. This is an event I hadn’t heard of until I saw the poster at another store. This event features a bunch of stores that have created some gorgeous bridal wear, including jewellery, gowns, makeup and mens outfits. SGB Summer Festa 2012 has also just started. Sounds Gravis Beach has had Festas before (there was a Halloween one last year) and there’s also a club \o/  I have items from all those events, check the credits to see what’s from where!

Locks and Chains

I really have so much to blog it’s ridiculous so I’m going to attempt to get most of it done today (Monday) hopefully. I’m gonna see if I can get each event done in one post, so there may be a lot of pictures in the next few blog posts (after this one).  CHIC² started at 4pm slt today. It’s a fab event celebrating CHIC Managements second birthday. Keira, yet again, has done an amazing job with this event. The layout is so simple, each store has a booth (which they’ve decorated) with their items in. The booths are stacked on top of each other in a circular shape. You can leave your avi on the ground and cam around or fly up to each booth. All events should be that simple! It’s an event worth going to I promise. Remember to de prim, de script, lower graphic settings, turn draw distance down, turn off shadows even go in your underwear if you want! lol The event runs until the 24th June. CHIC’s birthday is today! (4th June)

Blueberry Stains

I fell in a vat of blueberry juice last night and the stains won’t come off! I tried all sorts of ways to get it off but nothing worked. I suppose I’ll have to just let to fade on it’s own and make the most of being this colour, and that’s what I’ve done. I’ve used it to my advantage :D This dress is from Mind Games for the Mesh Around Hunt (start location), it comes in three sizes and includes a simple texture change HUD. The knuckle duster rings are from Epic Arsenal and are also a gift in the hunt. The headphones (not really visable) and forehead piercings are from Vaughans in The Accessories Hunt. (start location). I suppose this look could be described as a fantasy (because of the skin) or cyber (because of the piercings and hair), but then the dress makes it more girly. I kinda like it! <3
