If you haven’t stopped by the November edition of FaMESHed yet, definitely make a point to check it out. There’s a new build and new location, and lots of gorgeous goodies to be had. I’m going to share some of my favorites.
This shirt and sweater vest from Cracked Mirror is technically intended as a dress, but I paired it with cute mesh jeans from Evolve. The top is available at FaMESHed, and I bought the blue argyle. Much to my delight, you also get a white version of the shirt, which is what I am wearing here. The hair is also a FaMESHed item, from Wasabi Pills. It’s seriously adorable, and one of those styles that I love for its versatility. It could easily be dressed up, but here you can see it on me in all my comfy, casual glory. I tend to find the reds from Wasabi Pills aren’t quite the shade I’d like, but fortunately you can mod their hair, so I always tint it to make it more like my preferred shade of red (yes, even the rigged mesh – you just have to rezz it to do so. It should be noted that with this headband you have to use select face to select just that and tint it back to white after tinting the entire hair. This technique works on most rigged mesh hair with built in accessories.).
Something about this look made me think “college co-ed.” I felt stylish, but in a very easy, simple way. I added my new Metal Stripe nails from Izzie’s for some pizzazz and fun. My eyes are from the new Eternal line at IKON. I am really over the moon about this line. It has an element of realism that I love, and there are so many awesome colors. In this pic I am wearing the blue-gray.
My other FaMESHed look features separates from Valentina E. Couture. I really love this store’s items. They are original, creative and the detail work is stunning. These pieces with their military-design-as-fashion feel wanted an urban, grungy type of setting. I asked my reliable friends on Plurk, and someone suggested I check Tobacco Road. This sim was perfect, and just as a bonus, I was able to rezz my Madman’s Blue Box from Hopscotch. For those who aren’t fans, this recent release (it was at Cinema) is inspired by the amazing show Doctor Who. I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who, so I was thrilled to use this prop. My boots are from Miel… and the color perfectly matched the Mountie shade of the skirt and jacket.
This first pose in the prop makes me think of when the TARDIS has first landed, and you’re never sure what you might find outside the doors! I went a little artsy (for me) with this pic. The prop and the outfit just lent themselves to a more creative look.
In this pic, I imagine I’ve somehow been separated from the Doctor… and I am waiting for him to come back so we can get the hell off this crazy planet, or out of this crazy time.
Finally, I wanted to do a simple (though hopefully dramatic) closeup, both to show off my new skin from Belleza and this gorgeous jewelry by Cae. Oh, and another pair of the new Eternal eyes, this time in Pewter. When Belleza released the Shyla skin some months back, I debated it. I decided against it at the time, but I’ve been drawn to it ever since. I’ve never owned a Belleza skin before. I kind of felt like the last holdout! Shyla won me over, though. I adore the lips on this skin in particular, and since there are tattoo add ons for it, I was a goner. After I bought this skin, I made a vow to not buy any skins for a month! Eep.
