I’m on a Boat – Arcade + Shakeup

This was a fun round of Arcade for me! I got lucky with some rares, and the Galley pirate ship they provided for easy off sim shopping was never full when I went to visit. I liked the ship so much that’s where I went for my photos! Mostly I was able to get everything I had my eye on. Truly the Arcade Gods were smiling on me. I’ve done a bit of tinting on my white bikini and hair color, and I made the ears that come with the unicorn horn invisible. There was too much competing for head space! These are all the Shakeup Fabric Flower Rings from Arcade (arrow will take you to the Shakeup machine) , if you want a look at the official chart with names for each style you can find it on the official flickr here. I’m using various Shakeup Slink nail appliers here too from the Mermaid, Floral, Zebra Tips, Basic Brights and Basic Pastels packs which can be found at the mainstore or marketplace. There are two rare rings, with the perk of being modify. They are white, so easily tintable to match any outfit.… Read the rest

Last chance to visit the we <3 RP event for great discounts on awesome fantasy and RP themed clothes, skins, furniture and props.

Cosmetic Fair – Shakeup Overview

On 26th April 2013 · By Nicole Twigvald · With Leave a comment
In Fashion, Second Life, smileyorc · Tags
There is less than a week left to vist Cosmetic Fair which ends April 30th. Shakeup has a bunch of great makeups there including exclusive items that will not be sold again after Cosmetic Fair is over. Which is a shame because they are awesome, so all I can say is if you want them don’t put it off! The skin in this post is Jalwa, she takes makeup wonderfully and the slink hand and feet skin appliers are included which was perfect for this post. Here I’m showing the six types of makeups for sale, 3 eyes and 3 lips with two of the lips only being sold at Cosmetic Fair and not after. Each pack includes a bunch of variations and a handy chart to keep it all straight.  I really appreciate the chart, I so often have a folder of makeup with random names and I have no idea how they look. A serious part of my SL makeup routine is just going through a pack trying on one after another looking for the color I want. :p Look 1: Double Eyeliner + Sessie Ombre Lipstick (exclusive!)
Look2: Danielle Eye Makeup + Sessie Lipgloss Dual (exclusive!)
Look3: Basic Eyeliner + Sessie Lipgloss Another Cosmetic Fair exclusive, not to be sold again are the Metallic manicure and pedicure HUDS which work with the Slink Avatar Enhancement mesh hands, feet, or rigged nails.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire – Hidden Places

The builds at Fantasy Faire are wonderful to explore. Many have special areas high above or down below. This is an area on the Magnificat sim which could easily be missed if only going from store to store. I’m wearing another of the new skins from The Plastik at FF. The crown tattoo (one of many included in the skin pack) made me imagine some sort of white queen who has gone to a secret room only she knows about to get away from it all and relax. There she plays on her piano and the music drifts up to her subjects who can hear it, but never know where it comes from. My outfit is WolfMaid from The Muses, it includes a rigged mesh skirt which blends into the system shirt upper and a mesh kirtle which goes over it all. The textures on this outfit are just amazing. And for the duration of the Faire it’s sold at a special discount price!  The Nocturnal eyes from Beautiful Freak can be found nearby. Bliensen + MaiTai’s  ”Mine!” jewelry set is an adorable, very detailed dragon wrapped around a gem.… Read the rest

Caverna Obscura is at Fantasy Faire with three recent releases in the RFL vendors. I’m wearing Petunia, a rigged mesh fairy outfit made of leaves and flower petals. The textures are so realistic and the design is lovely. It comes with boots, arm ribbons, a flowery necklace and the top and skirt with a choice of regular or spotted petal textures. These pictures were taken in the Deep Blue Sea Designs shop at Fantasy Faire. It’s a full perm shop for builders, and nearly everything used is decoration is also set for sale. The mesh flower I’m wearing in my hair is in one of the RFL multivendors, and my adorable squirrel friend is sold by the other animals gathered on the upper level. My skin is also a Fantasy Faire release, from The Plastik. It’s part of the mermaid line of skins and comes with a subtle scale print. I’ll be doing a full blog on those skins soon. My lips are from Rozena at Cosmetic Fair and my nails are my Orc Inc. nails in the Rich Darks Fatpack.… Read the rest

Fantasy Faire – Quixote’s Dream – Colossi Golem

In Fashion, Second Life, smileyorc · Tags
For Fantasy Faire Quixote’s Dream (on Lumenaria direct surl here) has released Golem avatars. Sold as both a regular avatar and also as Colossi: a rigged mesh giant which includes 2x (16 feet) or 3x (22 feet) versions. Here I’m wearing the 3x form and playing with a petite I’ve found in my cave (dragonspire). Included are two HUDS. One to control expressons (happy, neutral, unhappy), hands (choose from four hand poses), glow, shine, and a variety of alpha options to hide parts such as ears or lower legs. The other HUD handles tinting which allows you to quickly tint skin, toe or fingernails to any color. The full outfit is provided, and the gem eyes have 20 textures to choose from using a touch menu. If you would like to customize your Golem even more, everything is mod and works with the default SL skin and clothing textures. There are also free clothing templates available. So it’s easy to create custom skins and clothing just by dropping the textures you would like to use onto the mesh.… Read the rest

Both with gorgeous textures and curly cue detailing, they can be worn together or apart. Visit Lassitude & Ennui at Fantasy Faire (direct surl) on the Crimson Fields sim. My eyeshadow can also be found at Fantasy Faire, from Beautiful Freak (here). Since it was created from a request by Jackal I thought it was fitting to wear it in a post with her clothes!

Cosmetic Fair Before and Afters

On 22nd April 2013 · By Nicole Twigvald · With Leave a comment
In Fashion, Second Life, smileyorc · Tags
I love tattoo makeup! Often glossy and glittery, two of my favorite traits for anything and so many colors. I also enjoy how layering, mixing and matching can create a unique look. The way makeup can transform a skin to something new, for a lower price than buying a whole new skin and without having to retint feet :p. Cosmetic Fair lasts till April 30th with 28 creators and every booth had something I wanted. When I saw Ekilem’s picture on Flickr with Before and Afters I wanted to do the same sort of thing. So using cosmetic fair items I gave myself eight new looks with the goal of using five tattoo layers each, which is kind of crazy but a lot of fun. It’s not just makeup at cosmetic fair, there are moles, eyebrows, lip parting alpha layers, freckles, nails (regular and slink avatar enhancement) and more. So on the left is a basic look. Then I started adding layers! Basic:
Hair: Magika – Awake
Skin: Pink Fuel – Alyx
Eyes: ROZENA ~Twinkle Eyes~deep blue @ Cosmetics Fair
Eyelashes: -16- Elemental *REDGRAVE*
Scarf: *BOOM* Perky Bowkerchief short -carnation shine-

Skin Appliers for Mesh Hands and Feet! Aw yisss

I’m so happy with this =D truly perfect skin matching for hands and feet without the need for tinting! Along with the ability to use skin appliers (similar to how attachment breasts work), Slink’s new hands and feet (the Avatar Enhancement line) have nail appliers, a stockings/sock layer and four nail shapes. Since this is an update to the current hands and feet, you don’t have to buy anything new to get the upgrade. A nice surprise since I was prepared to buy new versions, as I had when upgrading from sculpty to mesh. These are the four nail shapes. The polish here is one of the default options.
You can request that your favorite designers make skin, nail or stocking HUDS, and you can even apply for a dev kit for personal use and make your own. More info about that on the official Slink blog post. In this post I’m using Adam & Eve skin appliers and nail art appliers. Adam & Eve has packaged all skin tones in a fatpack, all in a single HUD and for a very low price.… Read the rest
