Sci Fi

We have a themed party at Eden every week on Saturdays at 2-4pm SLT.  If you like dressing up and having fun and want to have a chance of winning a few linen dollars for best in theme, you should come along and join us!  Girls only though!

Last week, it was a Science Fiction theme.  Here’s what I wore!

Lots of stuff to tell you about in this costume 🙂  First, the hair.  This was a gift from last year’s Hair Fair.  I’ve been looking for an opportunity to wear it, and it seemed to be a perfect fit for this outfit, particularly as it has a full fatpack of colors and I could get a nice green to match my snakeskin tattoo (system layers and Omega applier in black, white, and this evil green).

The makeup is from Glamorize and is a combo set with lips, eye shadow, and teeth (!)

The corset is from D’eVil, and is Lara fitmesh only.

The pants are part of a set from Apple May and include system layers and Omega and Maitreya appliers.  This has a top too, and sculptie bows for the back, which are not needed for this, but makes for a wonderful set of lingerie worn on its own.

And to top it off we have the two amazing mesh pieces: an animated eye from CyberLove and some truly awesome power implants from Nerox!

The detail on the power implants are stunning.  Fantastic textures and animations on the central power pack for the spine and the power cables linking it all together!  The system is designed for the Kemono body, but works fine with Lara with some small adjustments.  The power cables are fitmesh, but again, they work perfectly on Lara.  The photos don’t do this justice, it has to be seen to be believed.  Awesome work!

SLB14

Second Life turned 14 the other day!  I’ve only been on here for three years or so, but I do remember about four years in when SL really started making news, I looked.  I created an account and looked… for about five minutes and went “how silly! why would anyone waste their time on this?”  Too bad I didn’t foresee the potential for improvement back then and stick with it.

As usual, LL is throwing a party, and it’s already started!  There are lots of things to see, including a showcase shopping event with some of the best designers currently working.  And most of the items at the shopping event are heavily discounted.  Also, there are free gifts.  Yay!

Here, I’m wearing two of them.

Flame!  How did you make it into the picture?!  Sneaky kitty.

This lovely little loose cropped tanktop is for Maitreya only, and has a three texture HUD.  I really like the olive.

And a cropped hairstyle!  Woo I love short hairstyles like this!  And it comes with four color packs of six colors each!  While the hair is mesh, it’s unrigged so can be repositioned and resized.  A very generous gift indeed!

OK, Flame. I know I know.  Flame turns 1,000 days old today!  Happy 1000th, Flame *huggles*

Cutie

i’ve been looking for a set of overalls in this style for ages on an MM board.  KO-H have them, but I never seem to be lucky enough to get the board to lock there.  I finally got a set from Dark Salvation’s board!  Yay!

The top comes in fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Physique, and Hourglass, and the overalls come in standard sizes plus fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Lara, Physique, and Hourglass.

The outfit also includes the platform shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high feet!

I’ve had this dress lurking in my inventory for ages and I’ve got no idea why I haven’t photographed it yet!  Easily rectified 🙂

The skirt comes in fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya, while the top comes in standard rigged sizes with fitmesh for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya.

My lovely little necklace was a Valantine’s group gift from BlackRose Fashions.  It’s one of my favourites.

As the top is open at the back, I can get away with open toed pumps too, right?  🙂

This fab little outfit was on AvaGirl’s MM board the other day and I was lucky enough to get it!

The tank top comes in standard mesh sizes, and fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.  It also comes with a texture HUD with six color combos. This is the aqua version.  The white jeans come in fitmesh for classic and Slink.

The detailing on the jeans is very nice, although the side seam is rather prominent, which makes for some sharp shadows if you have advanced lighting on.

A Land Down Under

This top and capri set from Entice is called “Land Down Under”.  I dutifully found an Aussie themed sim.

The top and pants come in standard mesh sizes, with a one-size-fits all fitmesh size.  Unfortunately, the fitmesh size does not fit Maitreya Lara (the cuffs of the capris fall right in the middle of an alpha zone, and that alpha is needed, sadly).  I’m wearing the small and this seems to work with Lara pretty well.

The outfit comes with a three texture HUD, for this version all the textures are in black and white.  There are other colors available at the Entice store however.

I’m sort of at a loss as to why this outfit is Australian, but I suppose you have to pick some name for your clothing 🙂

This absolutely gorgeous lace bra and panty set is a group gift from MAAI.  It’s exclusively fitmesh for Maitreya Lara.  MAAI is FREE to join.

The only tiny flaw is the small bulge in the underbust area, but this is hardly noticeable with normal wear.

As with all good lingerie designers, MAAI knows just were things should be transparent and just where they should be opaque.  What a wonderful something to welcome your partner home in 🙂

Corinne

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!
