Fantasy Avatar: Disturbingly Beautiful (Moth Woman)

I created today’s avatar in celebration of the Fantasy Faire. Second Life has hundreds, if not thousands, of events but a few things make the Fantasy Faire stand out. First, it’s massive. You’ll find more than 200 designers spanning over a dozen themed sims. Don’t be intimidated though, there’s a handy shopping guide to help you out. Second, it’s extremely in depth. This isn’t just a sale, this is a full fledged Faire. There are live events going on throughout the entire duration of the Faire.  Third, and most importantly, the Faire is participating in Relay For Life. As of this post, Second Life has raised over L$4,000,000 (nearly $16,000 USD) for the American Cancer Society. You can see up to date totals at Relay for Second Life.

This is a very important cause for me as my mom beat cancer last year.

7 Deadly s{K}ins

The base for this disturbing yet beautiful moth woman is the skin Opal from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Opal is a paper white skin, however there are variations for purchase. Each eyebrow color comes in an Omega applier pack with three skin variants including both the face and body. You can choose from pink, blue, white (seen here), grey, or no eyebrows for $L499 each. The fatpack includes all 5 colors as well as black eyebrows for L$1,996.

The Opal shape is also on sale for $L299. The shape is designed for Catwa’s Catya head and Maitreya’s Lara body. The main images in this post don’t use the Opal shape, however you can see it on the promo image below.

 

Another huge perk of such a pale skin is the tint factor. If you use body parts that have tint options for the skin layer you can tint this white to any available color. It’s wonderful for fantasy avatars of all hues!

Opal is available at the San Mora Fantasy Faire sim.

Of Dresses And Flowers

Spring brings us so many fun things, aside from allergies of course. This post shows off some of the most noticeable: dresses, flowers, and a dress with flowers! The looks used today can be purchased at Fashion Dazzle‘s Spring event through April 26. Check out our event post for more information on this month’s Fashion Dazzle.

Pose Fair 2017

This post was originally planned for Sunday but I got too excited to wait, so here you go!

The Pose Fair is here! This is the time where bloggers and photographers do a little happy dance and drown themselves in beautiful poses. You don’t have to be the photo type to enjoy the Pose Fair, though. Poses are perfect for making your avatar look awesome no matter where you are. Grab some poses and show off! All poses used in this post are from this Pose Fair.


 

What To Expect

You’ll find poses for men, women, children, and couples. There are props, scenes, and standalone poses. Many poses are exclusive to the Pose Fair so make sure to check those out too.

Keep an eye out for free gifts and group gifts from some designers. A few brands will also have LMs to the demo section of the sim for showing off their photography booths.

Strawberry Singh made a wonderful post about the Fair yesterday, including an informative video. Another way to sneak a peek is by visiting the official Pose Fair 2017 Flickr Group.

April at 7DS: Free Easter Egg Hunt & More

April is here and with it tons of fun stuff from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Read on to learn about the VIP group (and perks), the Easter Egg Hunt, Upcoming Events, and opportunities to work with 7DS.

VIP Group

Right now 7DS’ VIP group is FREE to join! If you aren’t already in the group I strongly suggest you join now as there is generally a fee. Group members get two free skins every month: one for males and one for females. You also get access to the store’s mini and midnight mania boards, lucky chairs, VIP group discounts, and access to sim events like the Easter Egg Hunt mentioned below. The group chat is also tons of fun and Izara (creator of 7DS) shows up from time to time too.

The two group gifts this month are Diana and Bo, both shown here. Diana is a system skin for the ladies that comes with omega body skin appliers. Bo is for the men and includes omega appliers for both the head and the body. The face was designed for Catwa heads, however it can be applied on any omega compatible mesh head.

The Lovely Ladybug (& More!)

One of Fashion Dazzle’s many participants this month is TRS Designs. The in world location has a little bit of everything for the ladies. Whether you’re looking for clothes, hair, or cute accessories you can find it there. The main store also hosts gacha, group gifts, and midnight mania. The Marketplace location has nearly 3,000 products for sale. The clothing comes in all styles from elegant to casual, gothic to preppy, and everything in between.

 


Aphrodite Dress (Ladybug)

This adorable dress is exclusive to Fashion Dazzle. This is probably the cutest dress I have in my entire inventory right now. The little antennae on the front really give it that playful look while still being elegant. You can change the look with layering as seen in the official advertisement below. Mix and matching leggings, jackets, and tight tops really change the feel of the dress. I love it so much! You can pick up the Aphrodite Dress in Ladybug at Fashion Dazzle for only L$100.
Note: Originally the post erroneously stated the dress was L$250. This has been fixed to show the correct price at $L100. Sorry for the confusion!

The Black Fair Is Back! (Ft. Maureen)

It’s time for the Black Fair! Purchasable at the fair is the exclusive Maureen skin by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Images in this post feature Maureen as she visits the RMS Titanic.

Black Fair

Formerly known as the Black Fashion Fair, Black Fair is an event focused on the color black. While designers may have multiple products the exclusive products must have black as the dominant color. Of course items like poses and skins get a little leeway with this policy. Dozens of designers of all types can be found at this event. Black Fair runs through April 21, 2017.

Maureen

Maureen is another lovely low makeup skin from 7DS. Purchased by skin tone (16 tones sold separately) she comes with 5 different color eyebrow options for  L$750. She was designed for LAQ, however comes in Omega appliers. This post shows her off on Catwa‘s Lona. One of my favorite parts about this skin is the single HUD. One click and you’ve applied your head and body, and yes she uses the new body skins! I also love that she comes with an option for red eyebrows. Gingers, rejoice!

Who Needs Mesh? Meet Magna

While many of us use fully mesh avatars some people do prefer the look (and price!) of the classic avatars, otherwise known as system avatars. Some people do a mix of both, utilizing a system head with a mesh body, mesh hands with the system body, or other combinations. Today check out this system skin Magna by 7 Deadly s{K}ins.

Magna At Designer’s Circle

Designer’s Circle is a constantly rotating event. Each session runs for two weeks before taking a small break and opening anew with fresh products. It’s a wonderful place to get quality poses, clothing, skins, and more for low prices. The current Designer’s Circle ends on April 15.

7DS brought Magna to the event this round, further proving that even though mesh is popular there is still demand for systems skins. Magna comes in Cotton Candy, Sand, Apricot, Taupe, and Cashew. Each skin tone can be purchased for L$199 and includes four versions: with brows and freckles, with brows and no freckles, with freckles and no brows, and no brows no freckles. Also included is the matching skin tone’s Omega applier for mesh bodies. Please note the applier is only for bodies. The face is available only for system heads, not mesh heads. If you’re interested make sure to pick her up at Designer’s Circle before the 15th!
