Adam n Eve have a new skin line out called Astrelle, and when I put it on I was completely Wowed by the colours. I thought to myself that this is so bright and vibrant, I’m going to have to shoot it in a jungle. I went to some jungle sims. The background looked dull.  I said to myself, I’ll shoot it in a rainforest, rainforest are filled with colour, it was, the background still looked dull. I finally went to an elf kingdom. It took a magicial land to find a background to stand up to do this skin proud.

But just because I say that this skin has intense make up, don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s not subtly shaded. I’ve been known to bitterly complain about the state of SL shoulder blades in my blog for a long long time. In my oh not so humble opinion, most of them definately would not look out of place on starving crack addicts, not healthy women. I feel half the time, like I have naked little chicken wings trying to burst out of my back, and any minute someone is going to start following me around with a fryer. These shoulder blades are NOT like that. These are the antithesis of those shoulderblades.  I can’t ever remember having liked shoulderblades more.

Astrelle comes in 4 skin tones, I’m showing you Natural here, which is the second from the lightest. There are 12 great make ups, more then you get to see here today, and demos are free, so go to the store and try them on. You get a bunch of extras with each skin. You get a freckles tattoo, a black and a nude lipstick tattoo, a manicure and pedicure in both gloves and socks form and tattoo form so you can use whichever you prefer. A variety of hair base, eyebrow and pubic hair tattoos. There is so regular and cleavage versions of the skin. The skins are 1,000L each or all 12 for 6,000L.

The cute lingerie is from Blacklace, it’s the called Meow. It’s transferable which means it’s a perfect gift and right now it’s only 99L. A beautiful gift that doesn’t bust the linden piggie bank, who can beat that? The lingerie comes on a huge selection of layers, including some that only have the top of the stocking which makes them perfect for matching with prim toed shoes like N-core which have their own stockings. This was last weeks Low, but Blacklace doesn’t always clear away LOW right on time, so grab it while the grabbing is good!

The hair I’m wearing is Maitreya’s Siri and I wore it with Amacci’s hair base tattoo, since the hair style didn’t come with it’s own hair base. This is really not a hair that you can wear without a hair base, so if you skin doesn’t come with one, I would suggest you buy the Amacci hair base set. It’s a lovely updo as long as you have the hair base it was designed around.

Poses – Just A Pose is the maker of the fine poses I used today. The front pose was from the Simply Hippy collection – Snappy Straps, and the back pose was from the Best Actress collection – Show Off. The close ups was from the Couture Shocked High Fashion Poses – Stance

I love teal. Other people love black, reds, blues and greens, there are even a few misguided and really bright happy people who love yellow, but I’m weird and complicated and I love the combination of blue and green that is teal. Being weird and complicated I don’t love all teals, some of the teals in SL, only a mother could love. When I saw this dress at Jane it was love at first sight. True there isn’t a teal in it, but it’s such a happy mix of blue and green, it just bring that lovely teal feeling to the table in spades. Sometimes I’m not weird and complicated, sometimes I’m easy to please.

This is the Jane’s Dana dress in Raven and Blues which sells for 150L. It also comes in purples and pinks. I even like the pinks. *checks self for a fever* If you are like me and like them all, you can buy the Pack of Optimal Happiness and get them all for 295l or in other words for less then the price of 2.

Jane’s calls the Pack of Optimal Happiness a Greedy Pack, but really, Greedy is such an unpleasant word with such bad connotations. We aren’t being greedy, we are supporting SL fashion, we are providing our inventory with a reason for being, we are providing work for unused pixels who would be bereft without our support. There are so many better names out there… The Support Your Designer Pack…The Never Be Caught Naked Pack…The Never Wish You Had Bought The Other One Pack…The Toss Them All On The Bed And Roll On Them Pack…*shifty eyes* No..I don’t do that…well you can’t prove I do.

Back on topic. This dress is great. The top is a nice true black, not a dark gray that looks like you washed it a couple of times too many but it still manages to have some great texturing and details like the row of perfect little buttons down the front. The sculpted skirt is big enough around that when you wear a skirt shape with it, even a large butt like mine, and I have friends who have smaller butts then my skirt shape butt in their normal shape, hides under it with ease and can’t be seen when you walk. Once I put my skirt shape on, this skirt behaved perfectly with my AO, not something that all sculptie skirt do by any stretch of the imagination.

This skin was one that was made by Style By Kira for the Another Fundraiser, one of her new Stefani skins I love so much.  I’m a couple of days late posting it, unfortunately for you to get it at the fundraiser. I blame my kid for getting sick enough to be hospitalized. It’s her fault..it’s her fault. I didn’t know when it closed when I took these photos, but luckily for you, the skins she had up at the fundraiser are available for sale at the Style by Kira store now. Supporting your SL designer isn’t quite as good a cause as the Japanese Earthquake victims, but it’s a good cause if you want to continue to have quality affordable fashions.

This hair is a really cute uber curly pig tail design by Calico Ingmann Creations called Jill. Right now this design is one of 4 that is set for 50% off. That means you can get her terrific picks pack with it’s 20 colours (ignore the hover tip that says 10..it’s wrong) or one of her other tone packs for just 100L.  Her fat packs go down to just 500L. It’s 4 really cute styles, not 4 old has been styles ready for retirement, so head down and have a peek today.

The necklace I’m wearing is called Kamoana Triple Layer Neckace in blue and it’s from Luc Lameth Fashion Jewelry or (Luc) for short. This necklace is 169L. You can buy a single strand version with earrings for 199L and matching bracelets for 159L.  My only wish is that you could buy the earring separately from the single strand necklace as I don’t really want it having bought the triple strand. (Luc) has an amazing collection of natural source jewelry like this shell based necklace. His shop is still my favourite shop for looking for non-diamond jewelry.

These two pieces of leather sexiness are the latest design from Purrfect 10.  They are called Gemini and they are only available in alpha version for viewer 2 compatible viewers. At this point I don’t think that is much of a problem, not many viewers aren’t letting you wear alpha layers these days, and if yours isn’t, switch, you don’t know what you are missing.

The shoes are 690L with VIP group members getting 25% off when they wear their group tags while purchasing.  This price is a very good one because Purrfect 10 has one very wonderful feature. Every shoe is really 3 shoes in one.  When you buy a shoe, let’s say a red shoe, you get the ability to turn any part of that shoe black, the shoe being broken up into 8 parts. For the first shoe, you can keep it all red. For the second shoe you can turn it all black to get a black shoe. For the third shoe you can mix and match what parts you want red and black and have a red and black shoe that is all your own. You can also change the metal parts to silver or gold. The nails are customizable to 20 colours. Fatpacks of all 10 colours of this shoe are 5,500L.

I’ve taken the slate, a lovely blue gray leather and mixed it with black and a silver metal option to make my shoes look the way they do. I finished them off with an Aquamarine nail because well…just can’t resist the teal to go with the rest of the outfit and I thought the aqua nail polish brought out the blue of the slate more then the gray. Yes, I enjoy my delusions, I’m comfortable in them.
