Wyverness

It’s been awhile since I have dressed up in a roleplay outfit so I picked out this colorful half human/half beast outfit from Bare@Rose to feature today in my blog.  Check out the details of the outfit, gorgeous texture and best of all the wings and tail are bento!  I still need to get around learning a bit more about creating videos on SL so I can show you how beautifully they move.  For now, photos will do.   Hope you like it!

Sweet China Doll

I am really loving this new face from Apple May Designs, such a sweet face and lovely lips.  Anyways, today I am wearing a lighter skin tone, which is what I usually wear.  I can’t wait to see more make up options.  The eyes are a gift from my friend and great blogger, Nana Minuet.  I have been wearing them for sometime, but I had a few people asking where to buy them so I added a SLURL below to her store.  These eyes are one of my favorites.  The dress I am wearing is new from Aleida.  It’s called China Doll, hence the title of my post today.  Ok, it’s not the most original but my brain is still on vacation mode.

Mana

Check out this gorgeous hair from D!va.  This is an instore group gift to celebrate 15000+ group members.  You need to activate your group tag and click on the panel at the store.  There is no cost to join the group and on the second floor you can find past group only gifts.  Today’s outfit was based on my new hair.  The long messy side ponytail is quite girly so went for a puffy skirt.  The skirt is actually part of a dress from Shush currently on sale for L$50.  I pulled out a simple top, also part of another outfit.  This one is from Last Call, no longer available.  Last Call is a brand I cherish and still wear.  Despite the outfits being 4-5 years old, they are still very current.  I would think of them as classic pieces.

[ p o s t c a r d ] Winter at Fruit Islands

One of my favorite places to visit during winter is “Winter at Fruit Islands“.  Covered in powdery white snow, the scenery is just beautiful with lots of great photo locations.  Explore the beautiful sim with friends, go ice-skating on the frozen lake, take a tour on a horse sleigh, or have a romantic rendez-vous with that special someone.  I know I will be coming back to take some more pictures.

[ s k i n ] Vella by JE*Republic

Jungeun Vella from JE*Republic released her first skin collection called Vella.  I picked out Vella Snow Runway series to show you today.  I love the exotic make-up choices and the face is so luscious.  The deep set eyes and kissable glossy lips are extremely sensual. 

The body detail is quite realistic too.  Some may find the shadowing on the back a bit harsh, but overall body shading is quite lovely, especially the chest and tummy area.  There are some minor visible seamlines on the back but nothing that can’t be dismissed.  After all, a beautiful face is more important for me when choosing a skin, since I hardly get naked in SL.

Check out some of my favorite make-ups below.  Vella Snow Runway skins are available in 3 different tones: light, mid tan, and dark tan.  I am wearing mid tan.  Each skin tone has 13 different make-ups which are all different variations of smokey grey eye make up and nude glossy lips.  Each make-up pack comes with two options, with hair and without hair.  I am wearing with hair option in my pictures.  Fatpack of all 13 make-ups is quite affordable at L$3290.  You can also buy individual make up pack for L$990. 

If you are looking for some exotic skins, come down and pick up some demos.  Also, don’t forget to pick up the 2nd anniversay dollarbie skin which I blogged about here.  It’s gorgeous!
