Sweetest Goodbye

Kitty Cat

With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to try something different today, neko style.  I have always wanted to try this style, but never had the courage.  Trying new styles can be quite intimidating, but Beautiful Dirty Rich is a great place to start for neko style first timers like me.  You can find a wide range of full outfits with ears and tails.  The outfit I am wearing is called Dancing in the Dark Dress Version, and it’s a bargain, currently on sale for L$99.  It contains so many clothing options, ears, tail, tattoos, boots, and even headphones.  I am not wearing the headphones or the boots today, and I added some underwear from Sweetest Goodbye for extra coverage.  I just couldn’t get myself to go out only wearing the fishnet dress.  The boots I am wearing are from Bax Coen.  As I mentioned previously, I started training as a Customer Service Rep, so naturally will be wearing Bax Boots on a more regular basis.  The hairstyle is also new, from ChiChickie!  It’s so cute.  It’s scripted to resize and to change the color of the elastic bands.  For skin, I have reverted back to my usual skin, Curio’s Jasmine.  Anyways, I am digging this look on me.  I hope you guys like it too, because I may be wearing more neko stuff going forward.  Miao!

Bye Bye Sweetest Goodbye

Sadly, my friends Morphine and Sora are closing down their store, “Sweetest Goodbye” due to personal reasons.  Sweetest Goodbye has been a big part of my SL life and I have very fond memories.  I am so sad to see it close, but Morphine promises me she will be back as soon as she finds some time to create again.  All items are currently on sale, 50% off till the end of August . After that, they will be gone forever.  Here I am wearing one of their latest creations.  I really hope they come back soon.  I miss you already!

[ s t y l e ] Un Robe

I have been having issues with SL for sometime, unable to log in for weeks.  Everythings seems to have normalized and managed to take some pictures today.  I missed out of LeeZu’s fashion show, but still got hold of LeeZu’s newest release, Un Robe.  I love it!   This colorful dress is all about volume, a nice break away from my boring knits and coats in RL.  It’s getting really cold in Seoul.  We had -1°C last week!

[ b e a u t y ] HyeRim by JE*Republic

My friend, Jungeun Vella, sent me a review copy of her newest skin line, Hyerim.  By the way, just in case you were wondering, Hyerim, is quite a popular Korean name for women.  This skin is not to be confused with Sunny Soon Su Skin’s HyeRim which I wrote about a while back.  Though both skins are very youthful and carry the same name, they definitely have different facial features, not to mention body details.  Anyways, Jungeun’s new line, Hyerim, is quite different from her earlier skins.  You can immediately see quite a bit of improvement in her skills as a skin maker, overall with better blending and softer features.  Hyerim’s face is fresh and young.  Jungeun’s previous skins were much more mature looking characterized by heavier and darker eye make ups. 

Hyerim comes in two different make up packs, Pure and Mature.  Don’t be fooled by the name of the package, the make ups choices in the mature pack are in no way old looking.  Both packs are youthful with a blend of day make ups and evening make ups.  I especially like how Jungeun played around with more colorful under eye liner.  It blends nicely with the rest of the shadows in my opinion.  A few of the skins seem to have some visible seamline problems on the neck, but that could be due to my computer.   The skin may have not rezzed completely because most of skins looked alright.  Please take a look at my favorite make up choices below.

Hyerim unfortunately only comes in one eyebrow color, reddish light brown.  I wish the eyebrows were darker so I could wear them with my darker hair colors, but that is my own personal preference.  There is also no hairbase option, but there are lots of hair base tattoos available in the grid you can easily use if you desperately need one.  For those who like extra cleavage, Jungeun does offer cleavage option, so there is no need to worry.  Note there are 26 different make ups available.  Pick up some demos at her store, try them on and see if it something you may fancy.

[ s t y l e ] Burana

Burana is another dress from Baiastice’s 2010 Fall Collection.  Sissy Pessoa has impressed me yet again with her creativity.  It’s a perfect mixture of fantasy and haute couture.  Can you imagine wearing a dress like this in RL?  I would love to own this gown in RL.  Not sure if I would have any ocassion to wear it, but who cares it’s beautiful!   By the way, the dress comes with a built in AO option scripted with animated poses, so no more hands or legs sticking out in the wrong places.
