I want to see the stars – News from Purple Moon, Eudora 3D and lots of hairs! :)

Heya peeps,

two more weeks until it’s finally the end of the schoolyear and I get to have a six week summer break. It’s about time, I am TIRED. πŸ˜€ Life is busy atm but I still managed to put together this outfit which is somewhat unusual and I really like it because of that! πŸ™‚

Lets have a glimpse!

The squirrel!

This squirrel by Anya Ohmai for !Ohmai is adorable. I am not usually a BIG fan of the giant influx of plushies al over the place, but some always manage to stick out and this is one of them for sure. For this steampunk inspired outfit it is perfect. πŸ™‚ I love the incredibly welldone textures as well as the generally – somewhat unnatural- cute shape…plus the mini goggles! πŸ™‚ It comes with various options to hold and rez it and certainly is a good companion for anyone who like ssteampunksih outfits..or maybe plays a pilot? πŸ™‚


The dress!

This dress by Purple Moon (Poulet Koenkamp) is, imho, a proof that templated clothing in SL does not equal uncreative and boring outfits.Β  It comes in two parts, the upper jacket and the lower skirt, so it can be worn and combined separately. I LOVE this dress. I love that it has the hi-low cut so that it displays your legs while still not being too sexy. πŸ™‚ There are far too few of these kinds of skirts out there! I really like the texture of the jacket. The skirt is nice too, but for me the jacket beats it since I am suck a sucker for leathers. πŸ™‚ This template also comes with a great deal of little details, for example the ruffled part on the belly and the metal applications. Pretty! And the best part is, it is an RFL item at Fashion For Life, which means a set percentage gets donated. πŸ™‚

The boots!

Eudora 3D is a store that has been around for little more than a year by now. In my opinion, Eudora3D Resident is one of the best shoe-designers in SL hands down. His designs are incredibly real looking and the textures are so, so awesome. These shoes are SO perfect for victorian or steampunkish styled avatars. They come in two different colour packs with 12 texture options each. Each package is 650 Lindens, the fatpack is 950 Lindens, which is one hell of a deal. πŸ˜€ Their shoes are not on the cheapie side of the scale but still very reasonably priced for the awesome quality you get and the myriad of options. If you compare the whole package you buy here with similarily priced shoes elsewhere, you will realize they aren’t really expensive at all. I really hope Eudora will make more medievalish boots soon! Hint, hint, hint! πŸ˜›

I am feeling so….PINK FUEL TODAY! Harley makes me happy. :)

Heya peeps!

So, today a skinreview. Mochi Milena of Pink Fuel finally released her newest skin Harley. It really never happened so far that I camped a store for a new release, but this time I did. And I certainly wasn’t the only one, haha. πŸ˜€ Ever since her preview of Harley at The Arcade I was really waiting for this one. So here it is! I have no idea why my legs look so jagged this time.

Pink Fuel Harley Front and Back

First some..

General Info:

The skin comes in two packages for each skintone: The Basic Skin package and the Fatpack. The Basic Skin package costs 1000 Lindens, the Fatpack costs 1400 Lindens. The skin comes in ten skintones of which I am showing the VANILLA tone. Sorry guys, cannot afford all of them. Separate make ups/lipsticks for each skintone are available. Skin appliers for SLINK feet and hands are available for all tones and cost 100 Lindens each. the boob-appliers for Lola’s Tangos’s cost 350 Lindens. There are also appliers for Puffy and Lush breasts! πŸ˜€

The Basic Skin Package contains:

– 6 brow colors in two brow options each as shown below
–Β  three eyelid options for all lid options
– button nose and three button nose options with different freckles (light to dark versions)
– light, mid and dark freckles on separate layers
– two kinds of blush
– two eyebrow styles
– lipsticks and a bunch of eyeshadows are available for 300 Lindens per package.

The Fatpack Package contains:
– ALL of the above PLUS all make up options.

That means you are getting…let me count…32 skins for 1000 Lindens if you get the Basic Package. That, people, is freaking amazing.

I like this skin!

I think during the past years Mochi has improved her skintones greatly. They used to be very yellowish and I think she did a fine job at deleting these undertones.Β  I like the shading on the body and especially the hipbones. I think the stomach area really looks nice. The knees are nicely shaded and don’t have any too dark areas, as well as the collarbones. Especially the latter often bother me on many skins. What I -still- think about Pink Fuel’s skins is that her boobs look a wee bit too plastic, too much as if you got a boobjob. They are very highlighted which gives them a very ’round’ look, which certainly isn’t bad, but takes away from a somewhat more natural look.

On the backside, I think the bum is nicely shaded, even though I wonder if my eyes are fooling me or if it is truly there: Are the buttcheeks slightly more pinkish than the rest of the body? Anyone else seeing this? I am not 100% sure. The lighting was neutral.Β  The whole back suggest the avatar as a bit of meat on her ribs which I really do like. πŸ™‚

Let me show you some pics of the options:

Pink Fuel Harley Brows

As you can see Mochi really was very, very busy lately. I truly like these brows, they look detailed and nicely styled. I LOVE the NO brow option. That is just so awesome to allow your customers to mix and match your skins with layers from other people. What I do miss though are -truly- red brows, but hey, that’s what the no brow option is for then. πŸ™‚

Here are the two different styles of the brows. I cannot really decide which one I like better. Probably the second one, which would be option B. They seem a little more intense.

Pink Fuel Harley Brow Options

Then, the skin comes with three eyelid options: Default, Clean and Asian inspired eyelids. The clean ones have a little less lashes and less eye make up as well as an overall more natural look. You can clearly see that on the lower lid. For people who pay a lot of attention to details, this is GREAT imho. My personal fav are the default ones and the asian ones. SO pretty! πŸ™‚

Pink Fuel Harley Eyelids

Then, there are the nose options. Mochi offers you FOUR layers of an additional nose called ‘button nose: Without freckles, and with light/mid/dark freckles. Below you can see a comparions. Personally, I always think button noses (I always have that problem with Essences’ skins!) give me a bit of a piggy look, so I like the default nose better in this case. I loooove the freckles and that you can choose between three levels of transparency. Very, very cute. Also, it means you can possibly combine this nose with another skin! ;D There is one thing though that I noticed and I notice it with essences as well: The line directly under the nose. It doesn’t bother me a whole lot to be honest, but it is something that other skins do not necessarily have. I think I like it a bit better without.

Pink Fuel Harley Noses

The following pictures shows you a selection of my favourite lipsticks from the package:Β  Beestung, Cherry, Nude, Rose and Romantic Red. These are just my favorite five out of a lip-pack that contains 14 lipsticks for only 300 Lindens extra if you choose the Basic Skin Package. Honestly, that is one hell of a deal if you compare this price to that of other skincreators. But, there is one minor issue I notice: The darker the lipstick gets, the more of a milkbeard on top of the upper lips becomes visible. You can see this especially on the Cherry one (second from the left).

Pink Fuel Harley Lipsticks


All in all I really, really love this skin. It is one HELL of a deal and was well worth the wait. Add to that, that unlike many creators, Mochi LISTENS to her customers, is always willign to merge layers and offer help, and I am more than willing to pay the price for this. I will never forget the day a while ago when I had written somewhere that her Elly Skins were too yellow for my taste: She IMed me and I got all “Oh god, now she’ll bitch.” She didn’t bitch ONE bit. Instead, she asked me to give her suggestiosn how to improve. I remember how incredibly baffled I was and I gladly helped her and was SO happy about that kind of awesome customer service.

A lot of creators have their noses WAY up in the air: “You are no creator, you have no clue, so there’s no reason to listen to you.” Yeah right. I am your customer, and without your customers, you wouldn’t have a store. It always amuses me when creators pretend that people who do not create cannot give advice/suggestions on certain ideas, as if we are blind/dumb/unobservant or generally just have no idea. Mochi Milena is a GREAT example of how it’s done right. You don’t lose your face as a creator if if you listen to people, in fact, it probably helps you.

So, thanky ou Mochi, both for your patience and listening to us and for this skin.

It’s strange what desire makes foolish people do

Hey peeps!

We ROUND 2 is starting soon! πŸ˜€ Stay tuned for the awesome stuff to be had there. I am in LOVE with one item already:

Innocuous will be presenting this awesome, freaking nice armor at the event. Finally some decent armor for girls that doesn’t look bulky like hell and makes you look like a sad version of Conan. πŸ˜€ I am in love with it. It comes with shoulders, too, which I will show in a different post. The texture is really nicely done and it is MESH! But only the shoulders come in a rigged and a non-rigged version. The whole armor is modifyable, which is awesome for fitting. Imho, rigged armor always looks a little odd. Why would gauntlets move and bend with your arm? O.o

There will also be a dirty, rugged version of this armor available as well as a dark red and a black texture. πŸ™‚ I very much like this and will kiss Circuitous’ feet for a while now I think. πŸ˜› Honestly I even believe it fits a guy as well, since among our penis-type people there are a few rogue-ish, leather-wearing characters as well. πŸ˜› And..it’ll come in a separate version for the guys! πŸ˜€

Ecstasy of Gold

Hey peeps,

I know, I know. I have been slow lately. Several reasons there, and those aren’t excuses: I haven’t felt terribly inspired lately, since a few of my favourite designers have been very inactive the past month. Also, I am currently studying a lot since on march 4th I’ll have the second part of my master’s degree and hopefully become a full teacher finally, after 1,5 years of an extremely stressfull internship. So bear with me please, I really do feel stupid that I feel so lazy lately.

SO, I am glad Curio is finally back, even if I daresay that the compromise they amde stinks. Pity, but at least they are back. So right now I am waiting for new skins from Curio and The Body Co.

Talk about the Body Co: I abandoned my Orchid skin. Why? For several reasons:

1. For once, Body Co stated they will not create Tango appliers for their skins. Their decision, but a big let down for me.
2. I got tired of their prices. I am sorry, but 500 Lindens for a watermarked (!) Make UP, that you can only use with that ONE specific skin and not even any of their other skins, is just ridiculous. Doesn’t matter how many layers it comes with, since I don’t want a make up in a billion of skintones but rather one I can use for mixing and matching.
3. During their Sale, the Orchid skin was 750L while all others were 500L, due to the package being slightly different (three types of brows). The other skins come with one type of brow, which imho, isn’t exactly a nice deal for a single skin. Time moves on, skins nowadays come with several brow layers, hairbaes, freckles, sometimes different make up layers or even nose-addons and so many other things. I think they do not offer a whole lot for the money you pay, at least not outside of the Sale.

I still love their skins, but that still put me off.

So now, I wear a new combination of skin + skinlayers. I really do like it a lot. πŸ™‚ Thoughts on it? And…there are even Tango-appliers for this one. πŸ˜€

As for the new outfit: I tried to put together a layered outfit with pretty much mesh-only items. πŸ™‚
