This beautiful gown named Lavish is the latest mesh creation from Apple May Designs, and the first mesh gown that I have personally tried on and been 100% thrilled with. It’s a great design that has a sultry curves and wonderful textures. This is a gleaming lush brocade. I have a soft spot for brocades, I am a member of the SCA in rl, and everyone in the SCA has a persona from an area and an era. Mine is 1500 Italian, and at that time all Italians were bonkers for brocade. As a result I have a soft spot for the rich heavy fabric. This comes in 3 colours, black (shown), white and red. The black is the only colour shown in the demo, the white is shown in the store photo, and the red, well it isn’t shown in any photos other then a small square showing the texture, so you will have to extrapolate how it will look from that. The gown is only 275L so is very reasonably priced as are all Apple May Design products.

This classic mermaid gown with a small train is fitted extremely well. I have taken the standard mesh shape in small, as the small is the closest to my own shape, and put my own face on it, and this gown fit on it with no need to change a thing. If you buy many mesh items you know how hard that is to find even in items that claim to be Standard Sizes. What is even better, is that I don’t have any of the invisible patches around the edges of the dress, which is a big problem with a lot of mesh designs. The flair mermaid skirt makes this dress a treat to walk in, I looked at myself from behind and the side and the front when walking and it looked fantastic any way.  No legs kicking through, it moved like a mesh gown should. This is a great dress, go get the free demo and try it on today.

As an added bonus for this weekend only, Apple May, has kindly put out her Edith Necklace in 3 colours for only 10L each, above is the black and white version…

And there is a red and black version….

And for those with a taste for the more dramatic avant garde look, there is a pure white version.  This 10L price only lasts this weekend, so I would hurry and get it while the price is hot, because these necklaces can go great with any number of gowns, and of course are the perfect foil to the Lavish gown.

The beautiful skin I’m wearing is by Al Vulo! and is the Julia in Cocoa skin tone, red make up with dark brown and cleavage. I saved my lindens and bought the whole fatpack of the Julia Cocoa skin tone which costs 2800L  for 6 skins, or you can buy just one skin for 800L. If your a real skin addict like me, how can you settle for just one?

Al Vulo is special in that it’s really the only skin with highly blushed cheeks that looks good on me, most of the time with my face shape that just makes me look like a clown.

This skin comes with a huge amount of things in the fatpack. A lot more then I ever expected to get. If I was giving Al Vulo advice on sales I would tell her to give more details on what is in her fatpacks, because I wouldn’t have hesitated so long over buying them if I had known how much I was getting.

You get – mesh eyelashes…which I’m not wearing, as I didn’t have time to fiddle with fitting them yet

6 Shades of eyeliner on tattoo layers

7 lipsticks on  tattoo layers

5 lip glosses on tattoo layers

6 different versions of the Julia Shape ( no mod, so with how often one changes shape with mesh, useless in my opinion)

Each skin comes in light brown with and without cleavage and dark brown with and without cleavage

A lot of goodies for your lindens!

The hair is from Elikatira and is called Found. This is one of her new mesh hair dos, and as you can see from the picture showing the back of the gown, it looks as great from the side and back as it does from the front. I’ve never been in love with most of the flexi hairs in SL. A lot of them look like a boiling pot of spaghetti to me more then they do hair. The hair popping in and out of your boobage has never really enamoured me either come to think of it. That being the case I’m one of the people who has embraced the new mesh hair with a gusto. It encompasses the best of non-flexi prim hair and gives it a bit of life and movement.

This is an example where mesh hair works really well.  The only thing I dislike about it is that Elikatira does not have hair base tattoos to match her hair colours, and that I am starting to feel more and more is a necessity for hairs that are drawn back at the forehead. The difference a hair base makes to the front of designs like this hair, is astronomical. It would take Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory to think of a phrase for it, so I’m not up to the job. For this photo I’m wearing the Black 04 from the Elikatira Essentials Collection and I put with it the Amacci Hair Base 2 tattoo in Ebony.  Fortunately you can match blacks with other designers, so I can at least wear black in this design until Elikatira gets her own shades out.

The hair costs 250L for a colour pack, 280L for the Essentials Collection, which is 8 different colours from different natural hair colour family…blond..brunette..red head…black… or if you love it and want it all, the fatpack is 1,400L

Photographic Credits – I used the Katink Hot Box…This pose prop is a box that you pose within, which has 19 poses, and 21 intense exciting colours. The poses are all adjustable so you can move them around in case your outfit is causing problems or your avatar is too small or too large to fit an average pose. They have one on display on the top floor of their building, so you can go play with it today and see if you like it. You can buy it for yourself or gift it to a photography loving friend for just 500L. That is a lot cheaper then I have seen similiar quality items for.

Katink used to be called Props and Poses or PNP but they have rebranded as Katink and are better then ever. They are putting things out at an amazing pace. All group members get 50% off new items and they have great group gifts each month.  They also have great specials every weekend when they take part in 60L weekends. If you are an SL photographer or even just thinking of taking it up, this is a group you need to belong to.  The members are great, always willing to help out with an answer or two.
