So, next on my list of hair to show you from Hair Fair is Lamb and Redmint.  I love the pastel colors from both brands and I love, love this paticular hair style.  My skin is from Adam N Eve and is called Taliya for SLink Visage and I used the Fae Hud full of cute make-ups to change up my look below.  My darker version above is from the Goth set of make ups also for Taliya.  Adam N Eve always has such cute make up selections, so make sure to check out these items.

Level up.


You have until July 5th to shop at a new event called Level Up. Level Up bases their themes around all things gaming.  The first theme is Racing Games, so you will find lots of checkers…which of course inspired my post!  There are tons of fun poses including the set I am featuring from An Lar Poses.  Kuso put out some very cute wall lights inspired by games, and I picked up Cae’s necklace (although hard to see), but includes a gem encrusted flame. Finally, you can find Consignment’s Soda Machine modeled in the shape of a vintage gas pump. Very creative!   The rest of the credits are below!  Take time out of your day to Level Up!

Loud Mouth

Loud Mouth has released the newest mesh attachment, mesh lips.  We now have a long list of mesh attachments to cover up every single part of our avatar.  We have hands, feet, ears, eyes, boobs, and the list seems to be growing.  Just when I think we have covered everything, another attachment pops up.  Recently, the mesh butt surprised me.  I don’t know why because at this point nothing should, but it did.

Loud mouth’s lips do improve the overall profile of the existing avatar’s face.  They add a bit more realism and get rid of the flat feature from the side of lips that exists when you only use a normal skin.

I had to play with my shadows to get it to look okay, but there are still noticeable lines surrounding the attachment.  That, unfortunately, seems impossible to avoid.

I tried and tried to match my skin color without an applier, and while I got close, it never did look great to me.  The appliers are a must in my book.   As of right now, only a few places offer the appliers, tSg [The Sugar Garden] being one of them.  She is the queen of appliers.  Part of me feels horrible that the skin makers have to go through all his or her products to make these appliers, and part of me is selfish and impatient…I want…I want.  That being said, the mesh lips seem to be more of a photography prop similar to the eyelids from Slink.  I don’t know if they will be something I wear as religiously as my hands or feet right now or if they will end up collecting dust like my mesh boobs.  I haven’t really kept up with who else has appliers, but in Loud Mouth they have links to stores who have them or have them in the works.  I only knew TSG had some from my plurk timeline…(coughs, great place to advertise your products or keep in the know).

As the mesh mouth grows in popularity, I can see other shapes and styles coming out.  I believe one is currently in the works–much bigger and puffy.  Some have criticized the shape of the current releases, saying the frown is too pronounced.  So, I do hope all these requests are being heard.  As far as the hud is concerned, I found it way too big and bulky visually.   That being said, I found it simple to use.  It will get the job done, but as I said before, the appliers just work better and the lips seem to be made more with that in mind.  I did like that I could tint the lips of an existing applier though.  Final note, when I tried the demo, no teeth were included, which really made me pause. I hope that has been fixed.  I think seeing the lips with teeth is essential. For a more comprehensive tutorial on how to modify the appearance visit here.  This was really informational to me!

Have a great Sunday!

Keeping it short and sweet today because I am exhausted. Plus, I think most of you have traveled to or plan on traveling to Collabor88, so you know how awesome it is!  I hope everyone has a great week.  Keep your chin up and your thoughts positive.  I might be talking to myself there or to you, but regardless, big hugs.

Lucky.

So, it is pose appreciation time.  I use tons of poses, and I kinda horde them all.  I tried just shopping for poses as needed, but that never worked for me.  So, if I see a pose that looks cool or looks useful, I buy.  One pose shop that always has such interesting poses is Del May. Yes, Del May produces some of the most artistic poses on the grid, but you will also find other poses as well that are more blogger friendly-all of which have delightful or giggle-terrific names.  I am so glad Del May is out there because many people do such beautiful pieces of art with them.

Zodiac is underway as well.  I am wearing a cute cardigan made by Bilo for the event.  I tried to so some different color combinations, and well, I am not so sure I did the cardigan justice. I paired it with the Erratic tops that were on sale for Fifty Linden Friday.  I heart these tops.  It is been hard to find new layers to put under items, and these are perfect.

I also decided to purchase new mesh nails from Jamman!  I am really liking them.  I can change them to pretty much any color or design, and I also can change the length of the nail.  It even lets you change specific fingers.  How awesome is that.  I think I played around with the options forever.

Oh, FaMESHed, how do I love you!? If you haven’t purchased the new Erratic sweater at FaMESHed this month, then you seriously need to get your butt over there asap.

I was not even intending to try another photograph last night, but I was feel extra pretty in my casual look.  I love looks like this: simple, understated, but still absolutely adorable.
