Fantasy Avatar: The Glaistig

Recent dark and fantasy events such as We Love RP, Memento.Mori, and The Dark Style Fair 4 have been grabbing the attention of alternative avatars all through Second Life. In celebration I designed an avatar loosely based on a mythical being from Scottish folklore. The Glaistig is represented in many different ways, but almost all of them share the theme of a woman/goat hybrid. With that in mind I created the creature for this post.

 

7 Deadly s{K}ins

The skin used for the Glaistig is Nove by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. Nove is found at The Dark Style Fair 4 (aka TDSF4), an event celebrating all things dark. She comes in two packs, both of which include omega appliers for the face and the body in five skin tones. The first package includes the fair tones Snow (shown here), Cotton Candy, Apricot, Sand, and Caramel. The second  includes the darker tones Walnut, Chestnut, Taupe, Cashew, and Pineapple. Each pack is on sale for L$699 at the fair.

To find 7 Deadly s{K}ins at TDSF4 simply port in, head West until you reach the pathway, then follow the pathway South. You’ll find 7DS in the last booth on the right.

All Dressed Up & Nowhere To Go (ft. GeMyles)

GeMyles has created a fun exclusive camouflage set for this month’s Fashion Dazzle. It can be worn as is for a casual setting yet it’s easily spruced up with jewelry for a more formal look. The set includes both the Arianna Dress and Monaliza heels for only L$99.

Let’s start with the Arianna Dress. I really love the low cut on the front as well as the open back. It’s great for showing off any tattoos or just a bit of sexiness. I’m also a big fan of layering, which this dress lends itself well to. Sexy applier lingerie, especially one with a decorative back, would look wonderful with this.

A Moment Of Macabre (Memento.Mori ft. ~Songbird~)

Four times a year Second Life is graced with the event known as Memento.Mori. The event caters to the macabre, horror, and Gothic sides of Second Life. This is a great opportunity for those of you who like unique avatars. At this event you’ll find a far different look than the stereotypical pretty outfits and makeups. Regardless I, and many others, still see much beauty in the products.

Memento.Mori opened last night at 3PM SLT. It will close May 27, 2017 at 9PM SLT. Make sure to get in and see all the cool things! Today you get to sneak a peek at some awesome gore tattoos by ~SongBird~.

In Love With A Monster

The first thing I noticed when putting on In Love With A Monster was how deep the wounds appeared. They aren’t just scratch marks; you’ll notice the tender skin around the wounds themselves. This is perfect for any avatar looking for harsh wounds on the back. The tender skin is more noticeable on pale skin, however the scratches still work wonderfully on darker tons as well. The way the marks fit the body looks painful yet oddly elegant. They work in both a sexual setting where the scratches may have come from somebody in front of you and in an attack setting where perhaps you were mauled from behind.

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.

EccentriciXi

This gorgeous floral dress by EccentriciXi is exclusive to Fashion Dazzle. I love all the pinks, light purples, and reds in the flowers. Paired with the green sash it really pushes the idea that Spring is here and I’m ready for it. It can be purchased at Fashion Dazzle for $L99.

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 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.
