Not all Second Life avatars have to be human. You’ve seen The Demoness and the Elven Maiden. Today I’ll be showing you the Vampire Queen, featuring a vampire mesh head from Catwa, gorgeous facial jewelry from Swallow, and a uniquely beautiful dress from Silvery K.
Get The Vampire Queen Look
You can likely do a vampire look with items you already have. I personally purchased only a new head for this look, however even that is not required. I’d been looking for an excuse to purchase Catwa’s Annie for while, so the opportunity was too good to pass up for this post. If you’d like to copy the style completely you can find full credits at the bottom of the post. Feel free to click any image for a larger version to check out the detail.
Facial Gem – Swallow
Swallow sells a variety of accessories, jewelry, ears, and skins. Their store offers gacha machines and even a L$99 room. For accessories that make you stand out Swallow is a store you don’t want to miss.
The facial gem is actually a group gift! The group, called ^^ Swallow ^^, costs L$40 to join. Membership gives you information on new releases, promotions, and access to new gifts every month. At the time of this post the group gift wall currently has 18 free items for group members. Many people will find group membership well worth the price.
Dress and Neck Corset – Silvery K
Silvery K offers unique clothing and accessories for both men and women. This gorgeous dress and neck piece are part of the Feather set made for the February 2017 Collabor88 event. The dress flares out at the bottom, however it still moves nicely with each step. The full set is easily one of my favorite recent purchases. I purchased it with no specific look in mind, however it’s versatile enough to work for a formal or a casual event, depending on the color and your accessories.
The set comes in black, red, white, and champagne. The neck corset had an additional black and green option. A gorgeous matching blindfold with chains is also available. Set items are sold separately for $L88 each, however fatpacks for each piece can be purchased for $288. At the time of this posting Collabor88 is still going, however I’m unsure if the outfit will be available in store after it ends.
Head and Eyes – Catwa
Known for their high quality avatar products, Catwa has a little bit of everything. They have the most extensive collection of bento heads for both genders so far, and many mesh heads to chose from. Catwa’s facial animations are some of the highest quality in Second Life. When looking for my first mesh head I fell in love with Catwa’s Annie. Available in both vampire and human versions, Annie is a unique looking head for users who prefer a non bento option. Originally I opted for another head so I could take advantage of bento, however Annie stayed in my mind. I knew I would be picking it up once I settled on making a vampire queen.
The eyes offer various customization options including sizing, color, and glow. There are dozens of preset options to choose from. They even come with realistic tears. The eyes are extensive on their own, I may end up doing a separate post in the future to show them off.
