Marisol

The hunt items from the Womenstuff hunt that finished at the end of last month continue to impress as I slowly work my way through them.  Here’s a lovely coverup in standard size fitmesh, and sizes for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya.

After a couple of studio photo sessions, I needed to get out there.  These photos are taken at El Diablo at Scorpion Bay, probably the most scary surf beach in SL.  If you think you’re a good surfer, you need to give this place a go 🙂

Of course, I needed something to cover up 🙂  I’m not much of an applier swimwear fan, much preferring fitmesh bikinis, but this one piece from Ch’s Designs works well!

Katkind

I asked our wonderful friend and neighbour Katkind to help me with some pose adjusts in Snug Harbour’s pool (after another friend Rose wanted me to create couples pose objects instead of just putting poses in the pool).  So I roughly adjusted them, and as Aeon is away for the day, I thought we could get it out of the way and have a gab at the same time 🙂

So after fixing the poses and jumping out of the pool and getting changed, I commented on how much I liked Kat’s outfit, then thought “Ohhh I’ll ask her to model for some photos for the blog!”  She loved the idea and here we are!  Yay!

Doesn’t she look gorgeous?  Let’s hope I have all the details for her outfit right 🙂

Belly dance

Recently at Eden, we have been doing a belly dance event once a month.  I’m not a major fan of the music, but the event is fun.  This was my latest outfit 🙂

the-one_007

I got this from the marketplace and the comment on the item was in part “I was hesitant to buy it at first. I was afraid it would be rigged for popular mesh bodies and wouldn’t fit my custom body. But it’s not rigged and I was able to adjust it perfectly.”  Of course what this doesn’t mention is that you really better be good at editing to “adjust it perfectly” 🙂

The belt was no issue, I just stretched it smaller to fit.  But the under bra part?  OMG!  I shrank it as much as it would go, then had to edit linked and shrink the main part, and then move all the little prim and mesh attachments to match.  Every one of those attachment points has a mesh object and three flexiprims on them!  Eleven attachment points = 44 prims eeeks!

Fortunately the necklace, ankle, upper arm, and wrist bracelets were all fine (whew).

The outfit also comes with system panties and the breast decorations.  It also comes with some mesh nipple covers too, but with a mesh body and the appliers (Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP included) you don’t really need them.

Once I’d edited it, it really is a spectacular outfit!

I’ll just mention my skin here too.  Lumae, who made the Adore Peach Bare skin I wear all the time, is very generous with group gifts.  The skin I’m wearing with this outfit was a FabFree group gift, and unlike a number of other skin makers who just include the system skin and call it good, Lumae’s owner Lumiya Rae is wonderful and includes appliers for all major bodies, heads, and Slink hands and feet in her gifts.  What an amazingly generous person!  I highly recommend Lumae (I should, I wear one of their products every day!).  You should run over and look at some of the fabulous skins there!

Autumn Browns

It’s September, and some of us are experiencing the cooler weather… time for a little heavier of a dress, I think!  The peppers are ready to pick (and this little duck will be making some fiery salsa), but in the meantime, I’d best chase the ducks away from the garden!

Blue Moon Enterprises offers Coreen in rust, a beautiful one-piece mesh dress and blouse for their September group gift.  It’s in five standard sizes, and is perfect for a cool autumn day!

Solas does the most amazing detail work on her mesh.  Look at the folds in the neckline and on the sleeve, and the detail work along the top of the dress, and the stitching down the back.  If only I had her skill!

Now, on to more pressing matters — for a share of the salsa, who will help me dice my peppers?

Aloha!  A hui hou!

Sizzlin’

Another item from the Womenstuff hunt (at this rate I’ll just finish with this bunch and the hunt will be on again!)

A slinky jumpsuit all in one piece in standard sizes and fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.  I really like the Maitreya version as it comes with the proper script to turn your alpha layer sections off and on.  This makes it super easy to wear this!

sizzlinjumpsuit_001

The jumpsuit comes with matching wedges for Slink High too, but I really don’t like really really big platforms so I’m wearing an old pair of fav boots 🙂

Help Support Medecines Sans Frontieres!

SL is no stranger to charities, and Spoonful of Sugar is perhaps one of my favourite so far.  Five sims of shops and activities and events, and the proceeds go to Medecines Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders, helping the sick and injured in some of the most needy parts of the world.

Spyralle‘s contribution is the lovely Kirana mesh gown.  It’s sized in the standard five standard sizes, but works well with my Slink Physique.

kirana_c009

Luminesse‘s Sea Turtle happened to complement Kirana perfectly, in each colour!

kirana_c005

Kirana comes in six lovely colour/textures.  I’ve got three of them here to show you, for the others you’ll have to stop by Spyralle’s booth at Spoonful.   There’s a demo you can try, always a good idea!

There’s more, though — there’s a one of a kind special Royal Batik Summer Gypsy in Torch Light.  This colour pattern will only be available for ONE copy of this outfit, and it’s up for bidding here.  Sadly, I couldn’t convince Kerryth to get me a copy to demonstrate for you  😀  but you must stop by and put in a bid!

Good luck!  Aloha!  A hui hou!

This is a very tricky dress from the Womenstuff hunt!  I love the slashed sides, but oh my does it make it difficult for alphas on a mesh body!  Even though the dress is fitmesh with a specific size for Maitreya (also includes size for Belleze and Slink), you can’t alpha anything that wraps around the side of your body.  This would surely be problematic if you tried to dance in this.  Even static poses for this photo session proved difficult.

Having said that, it looks great!

Undone

A recent freebie from Punk Justus, this crop top, harness. and mini are fitmesh for the top and standard sizes for the mini.  The top comes with specific sizes for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, Hourglass, and TMP.

I can hear Aeon humming Bruce Springsteen’s “Pony Boy” right now, except I’m sure it’s “pony girl” subbed in there 🙂

Hello lovelies!  Today I’m wearing last month’s group gift from Ghee.  I’ve been so busy with photographing the wonderful items from Womenstuff, I’ve fallen behind on my group gifts!
