Flame Fashion Sequin Mini Dress

While I was just away on holidays I saw orange everywhere when I went shopping for clothing. I love orange so this made me happy. I thought i would celebrate by bringing out one of my favourite orange dress from my SL closest and showing it off in my blog. This isn’t new but it’s better then new, it’s a dress I wear again and again. The dress is from Flame Fashion and is called Sequin Sexy Mini Dress, which pretty much says it all. It costs 299L and comes in 4 great colours. The rust that I’m wearing , gold, aqua and rose. The dress is mesh and comes in 5 sizes, it doesn’t say standard sizing but they are the usual standard sizes.  The store has a lot of nicely textured mesh outfits and there is a demo for everything.  Mesh items are great, but there is still enough flaws in them that I don’t like to spend more then 100L on something unless I try a demo first. Some things are just unwearable no matter how I change my shape.

The hair I’m wearing is from Truth, and is their mesh style Haven in Espresso. Mesh now has a variety pack. *Does a happy dance* I love Truth hair but rarely bought it because I change my look all the time and no matter what hair colour I bought, it would never been the pack I wanted for the outfit/skin combo I had. I generally only buy hair from shops with variety packs, it is what works for me.  Now that they have a variety pack, even if  it’s on the pricey side, I’ll be buying from them a lot more! The link above goes right to the hair like all my links go right to the item when possible. Truth has redone all their colours, they now have numbers not names, and there are 8 shade colour packs for 250L each, 1 variety pack for 400L and a fatpack for 1250. Pick up the new colour demo packs and hair bases. I swear I have more hair bases in my inventory them most men have total items.

Beautiful, that is the onlyway to describe this new skin from WoW Skins called Chanel. It was for sale last week at SL Fashion Week, but unfortunately between the time I took these photos and the time I wrote this up, I had a 3 day migraine and the skins she was offering switched. I am wearing Chanel in sunkissed in the Cleavage version. If you have missed Chanel, you still have a chance to get it. This skin will be a bonus in the fatpack when Chanel comes out in a few days.  If you want to try another Wow skin in the mean time, there is another skin out at SL Fashion Week which I am showing a picture of next…so stay tuned!

WoW Skins is great for a number of things, and one of the top is that the designer is a very hard working Lady who is always keeping up with trends in SL. She was among the first designers to come out with Tango and Lush appliers for her skins and and now she is at the forefront again in bringing out SLink hand and feet appliers with her skins.  About the only thing that she doesn’t include that I want is gloves with skin texture on the finger tip for prim nails. Those are so handy and prim nails are very popular from what I see walking around SL. If you aren’t in the WoW Skins in world group you need to fix that, she is a very generous shop owner and this is a group that you need to be in. The latest monthly skin gift even contains SLink Appliers. This store is very active, always having sales and new releases and the only way to keep up with all the happenings is to be in the group.

I dressed up Chanel a bit, it has a neutral lip, and I spiced it up with my new favourite set of lip tattoos. It’s The Skinnery’s Voluptous Lip Junkie Set. These are luscious luxurious, rich, shiny lipsticks that make your lips look like voluptous kissable pillows. You get 16 colours for 250L. A definate must buy. I want another pack so I can have more colours…not sure what colours I want because really these are all the colours I use…but I want more…I’m greedy.

The necklace I’m wearing is from Maxi Gossamer  from her Boho Series. It’s the Tarifa necklace which is a mesh necklace that comes in 14 different colours/colour combos on black cording. The necklace set comes with 2 long necklaces and 2 short necklaces and one which is a combo of both. There is also a earring and bracelet set that I didn’t use that matches that is only 199L. I love Maxi Gossamer, and have a ton of her stuff, she always makes such beautiful sets at reasonable prices.  I like that there is almost always necklaces to match her earrings, I hate buying earrings that don’t have necklaces to match.

Wow - Erin_001

This week’s Skin offering at SL Fashion Week from WoW Skins is the Erin Skin and Shape. I’m wearing the Milk tone of the Erin skin with my own shape above.  The Erin shape is lovely though, I’ve never seen a bad shape from Wow, and they have a demo of it and the skins for 1L. The skin comes in milk, tanned and sunkissed tones, each with regular and cleavage versions and the Erin shape. You can get each tone by itself for 150L or all 3 for 400L. Then you can accessorize! You can pick up the tango or the lush breast appliers for 50L each, includes all 3 tones. You can also buy the appliers for the SLink hand or feet appliers for all 3 skin shades for 100L each. You can get the parts you want, without paying for what you don’t want. It works! Whatever tone or appliers you pick you are going to love the soft gloss of the light pink lip, it’s subtle but strong at the same time, and the beautiful shading of the purple shadow. Let’s face it we can never have enough purple make ups!

One thing you will notice is that these appliers when you buy them are not labeled as appliers for Erin, that is because they fit all of the skins that have come from the talented hand of Swansen since Rosa. So you can try them with other skins you own from WoW Skins and see how they match. It’s great when items you buy are multipurpose and you don’t have to buy them again! Check out their blog linked on the side to trace back all their skins that have been released back to Rosa, you will see some lovely photos of some great skins.

The shoes and hands above are the best invention since sliced bread. I said after I tried tango breasts that someone should find a way to use appliers to add skin textures to shoes. Well it seems like Siddeon Munro was already on her way to making that a reality. They are part of the SLink Avatar Enhansement System that includes 15 different mesh hands and 2 women’s feet and 1 men’s foot.

If you haven’t looked into the Avatar Enhancement system yet and haven’t tried appliers before, what happens is that you buy the mesh feet and hands, you can either colour them like normal mesh feet and hands using the hud, or use the special enhanced versions and buy appliers (usually at little or low cost from your skin designer).  The appliers are just huds that you wear while you are also wearing the feet or hands that you want to texture. When you click on the hud it automatically applies the texture to the mesh so that they now match the skin seamlessly in most lightings. The feet and hands are still mesh and they will take colours slightly differently than your avatar does, so some lighting will muck up, to use a technical term, but most winlight settings that look great for your skin will look good with the applied textures.  At the end of the day in any lighting this will match better and easier then anything you have ever seen before.

With the hands you can also buy glove appliers from some vendors, and there are a TON of vendors selling appliers for both nail and toenail polish. I’m wearing a rust on both my fingernails and toenails from Orc Inc from thier Rich Darks Fatpack which gives you 50 colours for 550 L. I’m wearing my nails in the long size, but there are several sizes and even a clawed shape. Check out the SLink website for a list of vendors that are adding items for SLink, it’s growing all the time.

The SLink mesh feet are really special and have a world of possibilities. For us women there are two types out right now, the flat and the medium. You can wear these feet alone, the flat feet you walk, yes, flat on your feet with, the medium you walk on the balls of your feet. The flat feet have flat shoes, ballet slippers and flip flops, sandals..that kind of shoe as add ons. The medium feet have pumps and all kinds of sexy shoes like the ones worn above.   Once you have coloured your mesh feet, which takes 10 seconds, as it’s just wear the hud and click, you can change shoes with abandon. The shoes are just a single object in your inventory for each colour, which is sweet for those of us who have too much inventory, so it’s just a matter of right clicking on the colour and shoe you want and choosing wear. Boom. It’s on. Change your outfit or don’t like that shoe with that dress, right click and wear something else. Done…no recolouring needed.

The SLink system also lets designers make outfits with stockings and make appliers for the stockings. You can then use a separate hud to activate the stocking layer on your foot. Once you have applied the stocking applier, your stockings look the same colour all the way to your toes. No more seeing people walking around in stockings that cut off at their ankles

I’m wearing the Elegant 1 hand, which is one of 15 hands in the mesh series. You can buy them a number of different ways, at a variety of costs. However you buy them, if you are wearing the SLink group member title you earn 10% of the sale in store credit for use later.  You can buy single hands for 450L, one of 3 packs of 5 hands for 1,250 or the fatpack of all 15 hands for 2,250, which is definitely the most value for the money.

The shoes I’m wearing Lulu Shoes in Chocolate. You can buy Lulu’s for 450L each or a fatpack of 10 for 2,250. That is about the price of most of the shoes in the store. Some of the fatpacks vary in price depending on the number of shoes in them, but that is basically the level, so compared to a lot of the brands out there, they are a real deal for a very high quality shoe that is extremely easy to match and use.   Win, Win, Win, Win, Win!

The only warning I have for the SLink systems is something I have seen a lot of in both the SLink group and other groups. In my opinion the packages you get for the hands and feet are packed backwards. The hands and feet that are pre-unpacked are the hands and feet that you have to use a hud to colour. Just make a folder for them and label it Hud Tintable and put them aside for when you want to wear them with skins you need to hand tint with RBG matches like most items. Then unpack the boxes that are called Avatar Enhancement. These are the hands and feet that are tintable with appliers. It seems a little backwards that since this is your big selling feature you wouldn’t have these as the items people first get their hands on, but I’m not the designer, I’m sure she has her reasons. Also note that the mesh enhanced feet come with the stocking layer on, there is a little hud in the box for stockings, just put that on and turn them off, and you will be set to go. Other then this small problem, it’s a very simple item to us, if the applier version was packed in the open and the hud boxed, I’m sure everyone would have no problems at all.

The eyes I’m wearing are from Mayfly, and are her Deep Sky Olive Hazel Shadow..I did this close up to show you exactly how beautiful these eyes are and what depth of colour they have.  Mayfly has great prices for their eyes, you can buy the mesh eyes or the system eyes for 99L each. Every weekend they put 3 sets of eyes up for 60L each, so that is a great way to build your collection of eyes for every occasion. That is how I have gotten most of mine.  I do love a sale on great quality items.

The bracelet I’m wearing is from Earthstones, and is her Mosaic Cuff in Solar Flare. It’s a nice piece that matches well, and sells for 499L. It’s hard to tell the scale of something when you are just looking at a box with no photo of the item on. It matches like I thought it would but it’s a lot smaller and doesn’t have the impacted I hoped it would when I paid almost 500L for a bracelet, which for me is a lot for something like that. It’s an extremely well made piece, but if you look at the full length photo of me, it kinda just fades in because of it’s size.

All the photos were taken on my Katink Photo Studio, using a texture from their Concrete set…number 7

The poses were from the Art Body Store’s Hand Bag Set, unfortunately the store no longer appears to be in business.

Murderdoll…aka Ivey Deschanel has taken her normally fantastic prices at Sn@tch and made them even better, with a 4 day 50% off sale that ends tonight. Sn@tch offers fantastic clothing with amazing detailed hand drawn textures at prices that would be great if you were getting one piece, but almost everything you buy at Sn@tch is a fatpack.  The dress I’m wearing above is no exception, it’s called Silk Goddess, and it comes in two colour packs, Pales and Goths. This dress is from the Goths pack. Along with this sleek silver number, you also get this dress in red, gold, black and purple.

Now we have all seen SL fashions that are recoloured from the SL colour picker, and look horrid, this is not the case with Sn@tch, each item looks like it is originally drawn in the colour it comes in. So perhaps it is more fair to say it comes in different coloured textures then just in different colours. I’m no designer so I don’t really know how to accurately describe the differences, but I know it when I see it, and this is colouring done right.

Here is a close up to see the wonderful shading done on this piece…from the small tiny wrinkles on the hip…to the ruffles around the neck…to the gem brooch at the bottom of the neckline.

You can get all 5 colours of this gown now for just 137L. Even double that when it’s not on sale is a steal.

This is one of my favourite outfits from Sn@tch, it’s called Murder Most Grave and it comes with 7 velvet shades of corsets and the black chiffon layered skirt. For added fun the posture collar is included.  All this is just 125L today during the 50% off sale.

I find this a fun combination of naughty and nice.

Sn@tch isn’t all about dresses though and here is a cute shorts and legging outfit called Farewell My Concubine. This outfit gives you 6 of these sexily belted jackets, in Army I’m wearing, plus Eggplant, Sand, Mushroom, Rose and Slate, these sexy brocade shorts and the black tights. This complete outfit, and so much more can be yours today for 137L.

Sn@tch has literally thousands of items, for all tastes in clothing, if you like it, it’s probably somewhere in the store. Don’t  forget to check out her mesh items and lingerie and accessories. There is also a special outfit you can fish up for free for everyone who likes 7 seas fishing.  So head on over and get a little (or a lot of Sn@tch today)

Poses – Unfortunately the poses used were from a shut down shop, but the photos were taken using my Katink Photo Studo and their Autumn Splendor Background #5. Their background sets come 10 to a pack and are 100L. They have literally hundreds to choose from.

It’s somewhat ironic that some of the loveliest skins in the game come from a shop called Filthy. It’s no surprise to those in her group that some of them are also her group gifts, as the designer behind this beautiful skin machine, Alexandra Barcelos, is as generous as she is talented.

Her latest creation is called Jolie, and she comes in 6 skin tones from Fair to Espresso, and is sold only in fatpacks of 8 skins for 1,800 lindens. With skin this nice and prices like that, why wouldn’t you want the fatpack. I never understood buying one skin for 1,000 lindens in a shop when you could get fatpacks for not much more. But I am a little skin piglet.

As you can see from the front and back body shots above, Jolie has lovely shading, not too muscular, not too shapeless, just right. I love her belly button and the very light scattering of moles. This is taken with my shape, which I always  do skins with, but the last photo I’m going to give you is with the Jolie shape which is included in the skin pack. The shape is lovely, and is modifiable, which every shape needs to be. It makes a skin pack which is already a good deal into a great deal.  There is also tattoo and underwear versions of cleavage add ons, I didn’t wear this in the shots as this type of swim suit looks terrible with them, but it’s great to have the options.

I love the make up palette, a nice variety of shade and make ups.

If you want to add some extra variety to it, there is a 1L lip gloss pack that she is giving away in her group gifts section as well as a package of tattoo lashes, blushes, eyeliners, lipglosses and lipliners that she is giving free to group members.  Group membership is 199L and she has never missed giving out a new skin for boys and girls each month that I have seen.

Last but not at all least is the Jolie shape. This is definitely a cute shape, the only thing I don’t love about it is the upper lip being bigger then the bottom lip. That has always been something that creeps me out. I always shudder watching Liv Tylor in movies because of it, but millions think she is stunning so I’m obviously a minority on that one. Well we all have our foibles, and I realize I’m weird on this one.

The hair is from the ever talented Truth Hawks at his shop Truth, SL’s first name in hair and is called Jean. I’m wearing it in Auburn from the gingers pack. I love this one, not too long, not too short, a little sporty, but clean enough to be elegant. This one is definitely a home run. I expect I’ll be tempted to wear this one with a lot of things. The colour packs are 250L each or you can buy the whole kit an caboodle for 1,500L.

The great swim suit is from Izzie’s. She makes everything look fantastic.  Most of the time when I put something on the first thing I do is check the shoulders to see how bad the shoulder connection is on the outfit. Her stuff is so well made I stopped checking. Too bad you can’t say that for everyone. Sometimes I think half the popularity of long hair with bloggers is to hide crappy shoulders. This great bikini is part of a big set that she came out with, that has all the colours and patterns anyone could ever hope for.  This one is her floral in cyan. You get it in a pack of 3 floral bikinis for only 220L.  You can also buy it in a fatpack of all her patterned bikinis for 889L, and I believe the count is 15 bikinis.  You definately can’t wear all them out, even in SL’s eternal summer.

The poses I used are from Lauria’s  The Sweetest Thing pack. Lauria is moving away from her old poses into more high fashion oriented poses so if you want to pick  up this cute and versitile pose pack in world, you had better do it soon, or you will only find it on the marketplace some day! It’s currently selling for 250L

I discovered this new skin by Style By Kira just before I came down with my acute broncitus, and it’s been one thing I have been dying to get back to blog, and now I have finally done it! When it is something this pretty, you don’t want to do a half assed job of it.

One of the most frustrating things about Kira’s work is that if you love a skin style, you have to wait weeks to get more of it, and you just get a couple of pieces in a week, then you have to wait some more. You get your obscession in bits and dribbles. Not so with Lulu. She has made a whole collection so for those of us who love this skin, and I’m sure you will, I know it’s now my new favourite, you have a whole bunch to play with, right from the start!

She has also lowered her standard already low prices, instead of being 600L per skin, these are 400L per skin for the classic make ups and 150L per skin for the fantasy make ups.  You can also get all the classic make up skins – A to J in a fatpack of 10 skins for 2,400L. Almost 50% off.  You can get the matching A to J fantasty skin fatpack for 950L, an incrediable deal, or you can get the whole set fatpack, all 20 skins plus the Lulu shape for 3250L. Other then the shape I made when I came into SL on the first day, Kira’s shapes are the only ones I’ll wear, so it is worth trying the demo of the Lulu shape, she is truely a great shape maker.

I love the shading in the front and back of the body on Lulu. It’s not too much, not too little, it’s just right. It should come with a 3 bears sticker on the heel or something.

To show this great skin off, I picked Blacklace’s gorgeous Kimiko Orange Thai Silk Bra Set, sexy, silky, lush, striking, everything you want next to your skin.  This transferable lingerie set comes with a plethora of layer options, that make you feel pampered and seen to. I seriously can not think of one layer combination you could possibly need that is not in this folder, I couldn’t have thought up half of them to be honest.  The prim pieces are cute and well placed. Ribbons on the front of the garter straps and a wire clasp at the back of the garter belt to name just a couple of them. You’ll have to search for the rest yourself. Adult hide and seek.  The set comes in 7 colours, but who can say no to Orange. I mean, it’s orange. *huggles the orange* For those of you who are less in love with the russets then I am, there is Purple, Pink, Silver, Green, Red and Blue. It can all be yours for 298L a colour or 1,299L for the fat pack.

Now for what you have all been waiting for, a peek at the great Lulu make ups.  This is 01A Classic and Fantasy

01B Classic and Fantasy

01C Classic and Fantasy

01D – Classic and Fantasy – I adore these both….

01E – Classic and Fantasy

01F – Classic and Fantasy – Fantastic Colours On Theses…

01G – Classic and Fantasy – Wild and Sexy

01H – Classic and Fantasy – One of the best sexy scary make ups I have ever seen.

01I – Classic and Fantasy – I adore the scrollwork branches on this one, dying to use it for something great!

01J – Classic and Fantasy – What can you say about this one, it’s just great… possibilities endless

01K – Classic and Fantasy – This isn’t part of the big set, but can be found a little bit down the wall, same price as the individual skins.  Perfect skin for spring or summer, or just to make you feel like spring or summer.

01L and 01M – 2 Classic make ups, both found with the extra Lulu’s…because extra Lulu’s are a good thing.

The hair I’m wearing help this skin look so good is Truth’s Francesca, one of his gorgeous curly hairs from the long hair section. I wore the Caramel colour from the Dark Brown Pack.  All the packs are 250L each or 1500L for the buy it all pack.  This hair comes with a ton of options that let you have it your way. First you can put it on in one piece like I have, or have a top and bottom separate, to keep the hair more in place as you move.  It also comes with a streak option, that lets you put a streak of any of Truth’s colour in the hair, to give it a highlight you want, in anything from a lighter or darker shade of brown, to purple or white…the sky is the limit for colour options with this fun option.

Poses – All the poses are from TeaSoup which is closing down and have all their poses on super sale. These are great poses, I managed to do this all out of one pose pack, which is something akin to a miracle! It shows how good and versatile their poses are.  Sorry to see you close, TeaSoup. The pose pack I used was Wait Another Day

Tyr Rozenblum the creative force behind Grixdale is working on a new set of skins. This is good news for us skin addicts for 2 reasons. 1 – We have more of her quality work to look forward to in the future and 2 – She has put her Teagan skin on clearance sale before removing it to make room for newer and presumably better things.

As you can see from above and from pictures to come, Teagan is plenty good enough to find a treasured place in anyones skin collection, Tyr is going to have to work extremely hard to top her. Not that I have moral objections to designers sweating to make me look better, on the contrary I’m very appreciative of their talents and efforts.

The bestest news of all? Yes, bestest is now officially a word in Tapika world.  Deal with it.  Grixdale has not just done your typical half off sale, or knocking it down to 25% of the price, or even 100L per skin nor even 50L per skin. You get all the skin in the Teagan line. All ELEVEN makeups for 400L each. You also get these skins in 2 brow colours, dimple and no dimple options and 2 cleavage options. Added all up that is 8 skin versions of each make up for a huge pack of 88 skins. But it doesn’t stop there. You also get two tattooed hair bases in blonde and brunette. You get 2 eyebrow options on bald wigs and last but certainly not least you get the Teagan shape which is really cute, and mod/copy which all good shapes should be.  Please note, all these photos are taken with my shape, something I do so that my regular readers have a basis to compare skins, but the last make up I have done in the Teagan shape.

As you can see, the Teagan body has lovely lines on it, not too overly shaded, not too muscular. Long and lean, and if your tastes fall that way, this is a good body for you. I am blogging the Caramel skin tone, which is about the middle, but there are darker and lighter all on sale. Demos are available so you can pick what is right for you.

This first makeup shows Teagan with the blonde eyebrows, dimple options and Cheer makeup while the second photo shows the blonde eyebrows again, no dimple option and the Cozy makeup.

From now on all the options shown will be brown eyebrows with no dimples –

Makeup 3 – Cozy 2    Makeup 4 – Faun

Makeup 5 – Faust   Makeup 6 – Firecracker

Makeup 7 – Gold Dust    Makeup 8 – Melon

Makeup 9 – Peacock    Makeup 10 – Plum (My favourite!)

This is me wearing the Teagan shape, wearing the Spirited makeup. Since this is Memorial weekend in the states, I’m giving a little salute to all the troops. Since I’m Canadian, I want to give a special moment of thought to the family of Bombardier Karl Manning who died on Friday in Afghanistan and to the family of all the other men and women who have given their lives on this mission. It takes a special person to risk their lives to bring freedom to strangers, and they make the world a better place.

The gorgeous lingerie I’m wearing is the Taste of SL sale piece of the weekend from Blacklace, it’s a delightful mixture of adult satin with lighthearted polka dots. Of course the sexy look it brings is all adult. You get a bevy of layers so you can wear this set however your heart or mood takes you, or hide it under another outfit for unveiling at the right moment.  It actually comes in 23 pieces, a couple of them tattoos, so your options really are over the top. You can tell the designer wears what she make, so they have thought of everything.  Guys! This is transferable, so you can give it as a gift, and women, you can hint for it as a gift too, because men are always helpless without hints. The price is only 99L as part of Taste of SL, so grab it while it’s a bargain!

The rich looking hair I’m wearing is Gwyneth by Truth, I’m wearing the chocolate, but all Truth’s tones are great. Each 250L hair pack gives you 6 shades, a streaked version, the version you see here and a separate upper and lower hair. If you love it and want the whole thing you can get all the colours for 1500L

Poses – The poses I used today are another special from Taste Of SL – They are from Izzie’s, and they are a set put out for the Memorial Day Taste Of SL, they are called Pin Up Poses and I love them.  They sell for just 120L for 12 great poses.

Front Shot – Pin Up 10,   Back Shot – Pin Up 09,   Face Shots – Pin Up 04,   Teagan Shape Shot – Pin Up 01

I live in the Canada, and sometimes it’s just nice to bask in the glow of a warm fire, especially wearing a nice warm sweater. This is feeling that the first foray into Lazy Sunday by Ibizarre evoked in me. Comfort, fun and just that touch of danger that any fire brings.

Ibizarre didn’t start off slow, they are offering both these pants, called Rock Baby Leggings and the sweater, called Black Cardigan, separately at 75L each.  I loved them both and snapped them up within minutes of getting the notice.  The only thing better then 1 Ibizarre item is 2 Ibizarre items!

Look, I found sexy shoes to match! The only thing better then 2 Ibizarre items is sexy shoes on sale! Vive9 has a whole collection of these sexy Xian v2 boots on sale. Unfortunately v2 refers to version 2 of the boot, not that it’s version 2 of SL compatiable with alphas instead of invis prims.  But the 50 l sale price tag makes up for that. You get 3 terrific version of the boot in each box. 

The only thing better then 2 sale items from Ibizarre and a sale boot is all that and a sale skin! This skin that is reflecting the firelight so beautifully is Style by Kira’s latest Elora skin 01C. It is on sale this weekend for 44L. You can’t beat that price for a skin this beautiful. Talk about spoiling yourself for a fireside snuggle.

My hair is a very old style from Truth, for those of you who have been around since the dark ages like me, look for Phoenix, the colour I’m wearing is hot chocolate.


I found this great outfit at Kiwi, this weekend, called Mercia. It comes in a whole fist full of bright shiny matched shades like the blue/pink one I picked.  What is even better is that it was a 60L weekend deal and as of tonight, Tuesday night, it’s still up for sale for 60L. What is not to love about a shop that has 4 day weekends! I don’t know what the price will be when the sale is over, but the store prices seem very reasonable, so I’m not worried that it will be unaffordable.

As you can see, despite it’s price the outfit has a lot of detailing, the folds in the top, the white stitching in the jeans. I love the wrinkled prim pieces on these knee length jean shorts/capris.

As you can see from this side shot, the pants are nicely low cut, but aren’t giving everyone plumber’s pants views of your derrière…want them or not. The top and pants look just as good from the rear as they do from the front.

First a word about the hair…This great hair is another great new release by Truth. This hair is called Gwyneth and I’m wearing it in a luscious shade called chocolate.  I like how nicely it frames the face…the small loose hairs that prevent the helmet head look, and the over the shoulder hair drape that manages to stay out of the breasts in all but the most twisted poses. Truth’s hair packs are 250L each, with about 6 shades in each, and matching streaked versions.  The fatpacks are 1500L.

This skin was hugely expensive. It cost me nothing…and it can cost you nothing to but a little searching time! It is the hunt prize for the Zombie Popcorn Hunt from Tik Tok, one of my favourite skin stores.  She is my favourite because she keeps making me look so good! To find the prize box easily I suggest you do what I did and look around in wire frame mode (ctrl-shift-r) because Miah is a tricky hider and it’s very well hidden! I cheated a bit though, and made the lipstick match the skin by wearing one of the lipstick tattoos I got in my new copy of Bony. That skin came with 5 lipstick tattoos, and 5 teeth showing lipstick tattoos, so while you are there grabbing the prize, grab a demo of Bony, because all the added extras  in it make it a great deal.

This is the skin as it comes for the hunt, without any tattoo layers.  I like this lipstick colour even more then the one that went better with the top. But I do love Tik Tok’s tattoos. They really let you individualize any skin for any outfit.

Sometimes you don’t need the fanciest shoes in the world. Sometimes a nicely textured, cute shoe is just the trick, and if the price is right all the better. Coy:ott has 7 different colours if these cute sneakers for sale at 10L a pair. You can’t beat that for value! Be sure to use the link above because the shop is almost impossible to find without it.

That’s it for now, have a great second life – Tapika Tomsen
