How To Look Like A Million Bucks On A Budget

Posted By Asia Ristow

Second Life and some of its many avatars may be free, however a large portion of us invest money into the game. Avatar customization can turn into a very expensive hobby if you have the desire and the funds. That said, you don’t have to be rich to look awesome. If you want to spend some money on your avatar but need to stick to a budget you can still look great.

What To Spend On

The important thing to remember is that your avatar is yours and what’s important to others may not be important to you. Maybe you don’t care about cool clothing but you want a high quality mesh body. Perhaps you love the system body and want to invest in quality clothing and hair. It’s entirely up to you. Here are some things worth investing in when funds are limited.

The Basics: Body, Skin, Hair, Etc.

A high quality base is a great starting point. If you have some of the more popular mesh body parts you can find low cost and even free clothing, appliers, and accessories quite easily. What you should purchase is entirely up to your preferences and budget. This section lists some of the most popular brands alongside which genders they support so you have a place to start. This is by no means a complete list, it just includes the most popular brands to consider.

Mesh Body Parts

If you’ll only be purchasing high quality body parts (and looking for deals on skins and appliers) I recommend sticking with the more common mesh body options. Their popularity makes it very easy to find low cost and free products to use with them. I highly encourage visiting Mesh Body Addicts to research any parts you may be interested in and demo all your parts together before purchasing to ensure they give you the look you want.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Posted By Asia Ristow

As I’m sure you know by now the current run of Fashion Dazzle has a summer theme. I wanted to throw together a quick post of summertime goodness to celebrate today’s Summer Solstice. There isn’t much text today so you can enjoy the pictures and get outside to enjoy the changing season!

LuLu – Skully Bikini

My favorite part of this is that those aren’t polka dots. They’re teensy skulls!

This bikini costs L$199 each set (sets include the color with black skulls or black with colored skulls) or L$349 for the fatpack (all three color sets).

Swimsuit – LuLu: Skully (Pink)

Akeruka Bento Heads For L$150 Or Less!

Posted By Asia Ristow

I don’t generally do posts on Mondays (and as such this is a super tiny post!), but I just had to make sure all my readers saw this great deal. Akeruka is celebrating their anniversary by giving their group members L$1 bento heads: Aron for the gentlemen and Lulu for the ladies. Not a member of the group? Membership costs L$150.

The group is called [AK] Heads News & Support and can be found by searching in game, by visiting the main store, or by clicking this link with your viewer open.

I know, I don’t have mesh eyes for the dude and it’s kinda creepy.

 

You CAN use standard eyes, but I really wasn’t a fan of how the ones I had looked. Sorry!

The heads will be at this special anniversary price until June 22 at 12AM SLT, so make sure to drop by ASAP!

(How) Hair Changes A Person

Posted By Asia Ristow

Have you ever looked in the mirror after a new haircut and felt like a new person? A new ‘do can really change the vibe you give off to others! This is true for our avatars, too.

A change of color can be the breath of fresh air your avatar needs, or perhaps you want an entirely different style altogether. You may be surprised at just how much a new hairstyle can change your overall appearance. Take the slideshow below, for example. The hair (and very minor expression changes) are the only differences between each image. Every hair in this post was created by TRUTH.

Getting Acquainted With An Anime Avatar

Posted By Asia Ristow

Various interests exist in Second Life, such as the Anime community. There are many different themed sims to hang out, shop, and meet others with similar interests. Whether you’re a part of the fandom or just like the look you’ll find you have some great avatar options. Today we’re focusing on products from UTILIZATOR, the same company that makes the furry Kemono avatar shown earlier this week.

The M3 Venus

While the body and clothing help make the avatar, it can be easily argued that the most recognizable part of an anime character is the signature face. The large, expressive eyes are the first thing many people notice. For this post I used UTILIZATOR‘s M3 Venus Anime Head. Just like the other UTILIZATOR products it’s highly customizable using just the HUDs. More experienced creators can mod the head, add their own textures, etc. As an added bonus it fit the Kemono body I already had with minimal tweaking. Score!

Chillin’ On The Porch In Denim (ft Serendipity)

Posted By Asia Ristow

Serendipity has made a cute denim shorts set for Fashion Dazzle!

The Maisie Outfit

I think my favorite part of this little set is how the denim gives the colored fabric that extra pop. Second on the list is something my regular readers know I love: the mix & match potential. The set is cute enough alone, but it’s also very easy to layer it with other clothing, jewelry, or even tattoos. It makes this outfit even more versatile than it appears at first glance.

In fact even on its own the set has different style options. It comes with a HUD that allows you to choose between six looks. The selection will change the fabric as well as the little flower accents on the front hips. The HUD also includes easy access to the store’s Landmark, Marketplace, and more information.

 

The Maisie Outfit is exclusive to Fashion Dazzle and can be purchased for L$99. You can also purchase Serendipity’s Kathryn Pencil Dress for L$129 as well as the Felicity Dress & Olivia Corset for L$149 each.

The Cute Little Kemono

Posted By Asia Ristow

In Second Life you can do or be pretty much anything, including a furry. What’s a furry, you ask? Take an animal and mix it up with a human. Think Bugs Bunny, Simba, or Rocket Raccoon. All of these fit the furry theme.

The furry community in Second Life is very active. Many sims exist exclusively for furries, though some allow human avatars in as well. While a lot of furries heavily modify and customize their avatars to have a one of a kind look, this post will show you a very basic and simple furry avatar.

UTILIZATOR’s Kemono

UTILIZATOR is the go to brand for many who want a petite avatar. Their avatar “Kemono” is an all in one furry avatar that can be purchased for L$900. Unfortunately there is no demo available, so do a lot of research before purchasing to ensure it’s what you’d like! If you have any questions about it please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I’ll answer the best I can for you. At the time of this posting there are nearly 200 Kemono reviews on the Marketplace listing with an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
