Purple Floral Minidress was a group gift a week or two ago, and comes in the five standard rigged-mesh sizes plus fitmesh for one of the Belleza bodies as well as SLink Physique and Maitreya Lara. The belt is textured in-place, but looks lovely!
I know it’s summer in SL, but it’s coming up to winter in the Southern Hemisphere where I live, so having won this lovely little wool dress on an MM, I thought I’d share it with you now rather than wait six months 🙂
It comes in fitmesh sizes for classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Fine, and Maitreya. Even though this is Lara fitmesh, there is a little body break though particularly around the shoulders in some poses. I’m not sure if playing with your shape would fix this or not (I didn’t try). Walking around in it is just fine.
To accessorize, I chose one of the jewelry gifts from FaMESHed (I hope you made it to the event!) A choker goes well with this not only for looks, but because the dress is thick, a long necklace won’t look right if you adjust it to drape over the dress.
I was looking for some thigh boots in my inventory when I came across these great winter boots that I’d forgotten I had! They are unrigged and so work just fine with Lara. I love the pretty detail on these!
This is a really nice top and skirt combo from SkitzoFreniks Designs, a new designer for me. Someone called the Midnight Mania board in SLF&O so I went and slapped it 🙂
The top and skirt are one piece and come in standard rigged sizes plus fitmesh for classic, Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.
The detailing on the sleeves is really nice!
I also wanted to specifically point out this hair from Ayashi. I picked it up at the 2015 Hair Fair and I don’t think I’ve ever worn it because it came in just one shade of red that didn’t appeal to me. But while looking for something to match with this outfit, I noticed that while it is mesh hair, it’s modify. Usually that doesn’t mean much as you still can’t resize or move it, but… you can tint it 🙂
That’s exactly what I did with this hair. I used a very light green tint to change it from a much more purplish red to a color I was much happier with. This is a great tip to keep in mind for anything that you have mod rights for (don’t forget to take a backup first!)
Sometimes I pick up a new dress or a bit of jewelry and then don’t get to write about it for a while (as I’m sure you’ve noticed). I’ll put on an outfit and think Wow, that looks great! and realise that I haven’t shared it with you. Dorothea from Sexy Princess is just such a treasure!
Dorothea comes in the standard five rigged mesh sizes plus fitmesh for your favourite mesh bodies: Maitreya Lara, SLink Physique and Hourglass, all three Belleza bodies, and TMP. There are a host of colours to choose from as well!
Only in the interests of unbiased reporting am I wearing this! Full-on goth like this is certainly not my style.
This outfit is system/applier based (system layers and appliers for Omega, Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya). It includes the gloves, fishnets, jewelry (including a spiked hand piece which I’ve chosen not to wear as it’s not Bento compatible), the arm and thigh bracelets, the necklace, the headpiece, and the nose ring. It also includes the spiked shoes for Slink High and the lace bow and bustle.
I really like the half gloves. I’m sure they’ll get a mix and match with a leather outfit I have!
My lovely friend Sarah introduced me to the Gem Preiz’s The Anthropic Principle (supported by the Linden Endowment for the Arts) a week ago, and rather challenged me to incorporate it in my photographs. You can learn much more about the sim here. It’s a large sprawling cityscape in black and neon, and is truly amazing to wander about!
It seemed a good opportunity to show you Spyralle’s new offering for Genre this month, the Face Inter Face.
Face Inter Face calls back to an earlier piece that Spyralle did for Genre some years ago. It’s glasses, a heads-up display, and a restricted message sender all at the same time. It features a texture-change hud to turn the sunglasses on/off and select one of four different colours, as well as select textures for the little balls and their support pieces. You can’t see the headband with my hair, but the headband terminates in ring-like headphone speakers for quality audio reception. 😉
Face Inter Face allows the user to project one of several little fractal images on the screen, as well as a couple of emoticons and (my favourite) the letters “afk” and “brb”. It’s very cute!
A lovely extension of this would be to allow the user to drop in their own small image and toggle through those for the heads-up display. I’ll have to suggest that to Kerryth…..
For now, stop by Genre before June 11 and pick up a demo. This is a lovely tech piece, and will easily complement a futuristic or post-apocalyptic get-up. Or anything else you might think of pairing it with!
