Magika just released this new hairstyle called Rowan. I’ve just found my new favorite braided style.
Not only is this hair new, but the HUD has been completely re-programmed. Everything loads much more quickly and the tint picker options can be imported and exported. Now you can save your favorite tints and use them again and again! More information available from the Magika group.
I don’t usually do an extra post in a day, but I had to rush this one to the blog and Flickr. It’s marvelous!
This photo shoot started with an Around the Grid in 80 Days hunt item from Lunar Seasonal Designs. The prize was a lovely goldfish bowl, which I was able to enlarge and swim inside. This rock is perfect for lounging and the goldfish and I are having a lovely visit. I’m sure it gets lonely swimming around and around by himself.
Avatar — The Silas Gallery — Tomato Avatar. I picked this up on sale at an event (I think it was Shiny Shabby) a couple months ago for a ridiculously low price. I’m sitting in the bowl, but the tomato has legs and can walk around.
Salad Bowl — What Next — Palisades Salad Bowl (enlarged for the photo shoot)
In my last post, I mentioned going back to my Lelutka head. Then came the hunt for a new skin. My last “regular” skin was from Lara Hurley. I think their skins are perfection! But everyone has strengths and weaknesses in their designs and theirs is no exception. They excel at skins for redheads and blondes, but I wanted to get back to my brunette looks with a moderately tanned skin that looked true to tone. I hunted around for hours in vain, even trying on other Lelutka heads in an effort to mix and match.
But then I remembered Pink Fuel. I absolutely LOVE their cosmetics– one of their lipstick packs I use for my everyday wear– and I knew they had a few skins in the store. I knew I’d found a winner when I tried on the Anja skins.
I succumbed to a Gacha machine this morning over at the latest Gimme Gacha event. The theme is circus and there are some unusual items. I saw the display for Eat My Heels by [Since 1975] and had to have a pair!
Shoes — [Since 1975] — Eat My Heels, Vanilla Cake. 75L Gacha prize.
Backdrop — Cute Backdrop by Kelsei Lannister
Pose — [shi.s.poses] Shoe Poses. 120L on Marketplace
I spent most of Friday and Saturday experimenting with the Genus head. I admit to a lot of frustration, as I was trying to achieve a specific “look”. I’m not quite there yet but I’ve made progress. I’ll do a full post on my thoughts and experiences later.
This was a quick, “on the fly” shot to send to a couple of friends. But it came out so well that I decided to use it on today’s post.
