Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!

If you’ve seen my Flickr stream lately, you’d see how enamored I am of this sim, “The Vineyard at Checkmate.” Not only have I been haunting the place lately, hanging out and snapping pictures, but I’ve also really been digging the lush green of colors of spring and true Italian charm that it brings. Though I did lag a bit in certain areas, I have to say that this is one of my new favorite sims, and if you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve already found my favorite spot!

New this week are some great pieces at some of my favorite events. The Roxy tank I am wearing from Erratic has a great cut out pattern in the shape of a skull on the back (not shown) and pairs perfectly with these new cargo pants from a designer (Addams) I am really beginning to love. Also new is this adorable charm necklace from Mynx. Chantel keeps getting better every time I see her stuff and I love the way this locket allows you to select the initials on the outside (via menu) but it also opens to where you can add a picture to the center heart. Hmm, I wonder what picture I should choose…

Lastly, Pose Fair 2015 is FINALLY open! Ruby and Shiloh have been working ridiculously hard and if you haven’t seen samples of some of the amazing poses and stuff out, you ought to check out the Hottie Cooterati blog, or better yet, head to Pose Fair yourself! I’d modeling poses from Dream Print, which is just one of many fabulous creators to be found!

Pose Fair 2015

It’s that time of year again and as many of you know, I am a staff blogger for the Hottie Cooterati Experience and so, while I’ll be blogging some of the awesome poses I’ve gathered at Pose Fair here, my main coverage will be on the ‘Official Blog.’

I’ve already blogged favorites such as Black Tulip, Little Moments, RoLu and even my first video for the new AO from Fruct0se! There’s plenty more to be had, so be sure to follow up all of the great bloggers linked in to Pose Fair, which opens April 11th!

Mesh Heads @ LeLutka

So, the big day has finally arrived for the premiere release of LeLutka’s new mesh heads! It’s been a long time in coming for a well-known brand to finally be releasing a mesh head that has so many features, and at a reasonable price! As much as I love my mesh head from the Shops, for a lot of shoppers, the 5k price tag isn’t exactly eye catching. Nevertheless, I decided to hop on over to grab some demos of the new heads, as well as the corresponding skins from Glam Affair. That the Maitreya mesh body is also in collaboration with these two- I admit I was super excited to see how things turned out!

So, I arrived home and began trying on the heads and mixing and matching the skins of Aria, Ever and Leda to see what kinds of looks I can come up with. I can honestly say that I love the HUD and all of the options capable with these mesh heads. The makeup tinting and additions, hair-bases, open/close eyes and mouth and even hiding the ears are all outstanding features. I also love that the sliders for face length actually work, because for some reason I could not make them adjust with my Mesh Project head at all. Though, that could just be me. So while I have hardly a criticism for all of the offered features. I do, however, have a few for the overall look.

To be perfectly honest, I was underwhelmed by the overall look of these three heads. Now, don’t get me wrong- while the execution is spot on and the quality is outstanding, the overall appearance of the trio are simply not to my liking. My observation? Drag queens meet boy band. The chin and jaw lines have little to no difference between one another and hardly any definition at all. The face is too long, for my liking, even when adjusting the sliders. Almost as if the overall face is too large for the features, but then again that could probably be attributed to the lower half of the face. The eyes are lovely, but the lashes, while mesh and of a great fit, are individual prims, which have turned me off lashes from LeLutka in the past, as they often appear jagged and are not the most photogenic attachments unless you are doing close ups. I also feel that from a frontal perspective, they have hardly any curvature and extend straight down and up, which make the eye appear tired.

All in all, the LeLutka mesh heads offer a full on mesh look for literally half of the price of the Mesh Project. The features are abundant and have great customization for makeup, lashes and hairbases. The downfall of the head though is definitely in that it cannot be used with the SL default avatar. Yes, I know, the default avatar will almost seem obsolete eventually, but there are just too many things that even the best mesh body cannot accommodate at the moment, that make the LeLutka head unusable for those not willing to wear a mesh body to go with it.

So,while ease of operation, quality and features I give these new mesh heads an A, the overall designs gains, perhaps, a solid C+ from me. Of course, I will continue to play around with it, as I have a feeling that with a few hours worth of adjustments and mixing and mashing, something great can happen.

On a side note, the new LeLutka mainstore is gorgeous, so definitely be sure to admire the new build while trying these mesh heads on and forming your own opinion. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments!

Glamistry is no longer doing just shoes- at least, I hope! These new release sunglasses are stunning quality and design and rich in features, with a full HUD, packed with colors, metals and lens options.

I am in love with this dress! The moment I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In fact, we were destined for each other. I wasn’t even overly concerned about how short it is, because it is so classically gorgeous, that there is nothing even remotely trashy about it. ‘Willow’ is by Enfant Terrible and has the prettiest pearl embellishments. It just so happens to pair perfectly with the new boho bag from United Colors, both of which can be found at the new round of Shiny Shabby!

I was randomly browsing the Marketplace, as I am wont to do at times, when I stumbled across this adorable ‘Pork Pie’ hat. I immediately grabbed one for both Peter and I and somehow, we managed to come up with similar outfits to show it off. He even managed to drag me shopping, of all things! It’s a break-through, I’m telling you!

Peter also happened across this ‘IDK’ event that I’ve never heard of before, but has some really great items, including these shorts by Addams. This is one designer I have never worn before, but I am definitely going to be coming back for more. I am loving both the textures and designs!

Also new is this backless (and super adorable! t-shirt from ANE and weekender bag with fun postcard print from Izzie, both for the newest round of the Liaison Collaborative! TLC also has a new build as well, by Apple Fall, so be sure to check it out! It’s stunning!

Calas Galadhon has re-opened! For those of you who were frequent visitors to these beautiful sims, Ty and Truck had closed them for a few weeks to update and redesign some aspects. My favorite Grecian inspired sim, Armenelos, no longer exists, but has instead been redesigned with a stunning forest wonderland. It’s gorgeous!

I managed not to break an ankle while exploring in my new heels from Hucci. I am so glad to see that Eboni has joined the bandwagon and started making shoes for all of the mesh bodies out there. I just love her shoe add-ons for SLink and the prices are great. You can grab a single color of these new Gabala pumps for $L295, or pick up the fatpack for an outstandingly low price of just $L695!
