Second Life Shape

[ S T Y L E ] Tie Dye

Tie Dye

I forgot to bring my swimsuit to Spain and I am in desperate need to go shopping for one.  There is this great public outdoor swimming pool right around the corner and I am missing out on all the fun.  Hopefully by tomorrow, I will be blogging in between swims and sunbathing.  Life is good in Spain… so relaxing!  Anyways back to SL, don’t forget to check out The Aloha Fair.  The Aloha Fair closes door in a couple of days on August 11.  Today, I am modeling some of my picks from the fair: the gorgeous tye die bikini from Artizana, and embellished jewel earrings from IT!

I have been asked by Francesca Topaz from Swami to review her second shape in store.  Why not?  I don’t have many occasions to flaunt around in my underwear, and this gives me perfect excuse to do so.  Topaz is very similar to Francesca, but she is shorter and curvier.  The body proportions once again are very realistic, far more realistic than my own shape.   This shape also has two types; one is shorter than the other.  I am wearing the taller version with my Maitreya body.  As I mentioned previously, shapes from Swami are no modify, so I have suggested to Francesca Topaz to provide demos.  I believe she is still working to get those onto marketplace.  Please note I have not retouched the photos at all, so you can see the shape and face exactly how I see them inworld.  Check out the close up of the face.  I am just wearing this month’s group gift skin from Wow Skins.  I am not even wearing lashes, trying to minimize distraction from the facial features.  What do you think?  Cute and sexy?

The poses I have used today are from Icons of Style.  I picked them up at Color Me Project.  These poses will come in handy for year end party pictures.  I thought it would be fun to add something different to the photos while still showing off the curves of the shape.  Better than boring studio photos, no?

I have never reviewed shapes before, mainly because I am quite happy with my own shape which I have worked on perfecting to my liking over the years.  However, Francesca Topaz of Swami reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing this shape, “Francesca”.   How could I refuse coming from a fellow Francesca?  🙂  Swami is a brand new store on marketplace.  “Francesca” is the first shape for sale in this store.  There are two versions included: one short and one tall.  I am wearing the tall shape with my Maitreya body in my pictures today.  Check out the curves on this body… so sexy!


Overall, “Francesca” is more petite and curvier than my own shape.  The proportions are much more realistic.  However, note this shape is no modify/no transfer, so it’s best to try a demo first.  Hopefully by the time this blog post gets published, there will be demos available.  When I received the review copies, it was still a working progress.  The face is cute too.  It’s nice to take a break from my usual look for a change.  It’s so weird to be staring at myself in different skin and shape… refreshing in some ways.  Perhaps I should review more shapes going forward!
