Meet Marina & Jemma

This is the final weekend of Skin Fair 2014. Sad, right? But the good news is you still have time to hurry over and explore the three fabulous sims worth of skins!

I have two skins to show you in this post. First up is Jemma by Clef De Peau. This was an unknown to me store, but I fell in love with this skin’s haughty and regal face!

Jemma by Clef De Peau

I took advantage of the feeling of this skin, and dressed in ISON’s gorgeous suit that is available at the current round of Collabor88. My hair from Truth, bag from Glam Affair and shoes from fri.day are also all items you’ll find at March’s Collab!

Shopping break

The other skin I want to show you today is Marina by okkbye. What drew me to this skin were the lush, pouty lips. And, well… it reminded me of a certain Vulcan science officer (and no, not Mr. Spock!). So, I decided to RP it up for this look. In case you haven’t heard, E! Eclectic Apparel is closing their inworld store due to RL being too busy. In store items are all marked down to L$75, including the SciFi dress I’m wearing for this post!

This look also gave me an excuse to use the Prosper version of my SLink hands, something I’ve been wanting and waiting to do for quite some time. Also, in the background you can see the gorgeous Alloy house from Pixel Mode that is available at The Garden. I plan to do more detailed pics of this lovely home in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

Live Long

You will find Clef De Peau on Sim 2 and okkbye on Sim 3 at Skin Fair.

HTGT Day 2

Well, you get a totally raw shot tonight. My new computer came, but it runs Windows 8 and I never even used Windows 7! I was on XP. Anyway, for some bizarre reason it’s showing a monitor that doesn’t exist as my primary monitor and not my regular monitor. The result is the it keeps insisting my pics are too low resolution to open. *insert facepalm here* We think the problem is the on board video isn’t disabled, so my IT wizard husband will figure it out tomorrow. Right now, I have a migraine (bah) and so I’m not in the mood to fight the machine.

I deviated from my default look to show you 2 awesome things. One is the new Libby shirt in Plum from E! which I snagged at the new round of FaMESHed. The other is the Izzie’s VIP group gift, the Ginevra New Year Skin. I am absolutely in love with this skin and I know I’ll be running to buy the full line as soon as it’s released. The pose is the same as the default, and since it wouldn’t show in this look, I removed my jewelry.

Today’s hair is Amelie from Wasabi Pills. I use the Dark Flame color, but I tint it because I like my reds a little more intense than the default ones from WP. Anyway, excuse the raw and uncropped pic, but uploading it directly to Flickr was the only way I’d be able to post today! And I really didn’t want to miss out on Day 2.

HTGT Day 2

Hopefully, tomorrow’s adventures in Windows 8 won’t result in a raw image!

Cinematic Dress Up

I love Halloween. It’s just so much fun to dress up, and have fun. If you also love Halloween, you definitely need to check out the Cinema event. There are a ton of great costume ideas, along with every day or RPing ideas to be found. Here are some of my favorites… so far!

When I saw the poses Hopscotch was going to release for this event, I was in geek heaven. Doctor Who and Star Trek inspired heaven… I’ll have something from the Doctor Who themed releases soon, but for my first look, I went for Star Trek. I paired Hopscotch’s pose with the adorable dress from E! Eclectic Apparel, inspired by the outfits from The Original Series. I picked blue because if I were in Starfleet, I’d definitely be a science officer! I rented a MultiScene skybox for an hour, and this is the Visio scene with one of the planet surrounds. I decided to turn on the hot tub, because let’s face it, Kirk would love that. Besides, the steam and bubbles seemed to add drama.

Unseen Enemy

For my second look, I am wearing Pididdle’s Cinema offering, called Undead Perfection. There is a story that goes with this ensemble, and I just loved the creativity and effort that went into this. If you’d like to read the story, click here. I copied it from the notecard that was included with the outfit. This outfit contains nails, the face mask, the bodysuit and even the awesome tattoos. This was also taken in a MultiScene skybox, and this scene is called Swamp. The skin is the Matrioska offering for October’s MySecond Box.

Undead

My last look is more every day, but still dramatic. This Willow hair from Alice Project for Cinema is amazing. For me, it conjured up a windswept beach… and possibly a broken heart, or date night that ended in a way that wasn’t planned. This look was inspired by a character in a Nora Roberts series I really enjoy. The character’s name is Mia, and she has flame red hair and grey eyes. She’s also, it just so happens, a very powerful (but “good”) witch. I paired this hair with the elegantly dramatic tiered dress that Valentina E. Couture has for one of their Cinema items, and I wandered to Fire Beach to shoot these pics.

Witchy Woman

I’m also wearing the newest skin release from Izzie’s. Fuyu is just stunning. I am so in love with this skin. Here’s a better look. You can also see the dainty and delicate necklace I snagged from the Collisions booth at Cinema.

Night Breeze

I’ll have more from Cinema soon… stay tuned.
