Luscious Freya

I was really excited when Belleza updated their Venus mesh body and included two new versions. Isis and Freya are the new builds. Freya is my absolute favorite. The curves are gorgeous and for anyone looking for a fuller figure in SL, this is a must-try. I’m particularly in love with the legs on this body. It is important to note, however, that Freya will require clothing made specifically for it. Your standard size large (what I wear on the rare occasions I’m not in a mesh body) will not fit on Freya. Fear not, though, as designers are already beginning to make clothes that fit Freya’s unique proportions. I don’t know all of the stores making them, but I do know both Blueberry and Foxes are. Definitely be sure to try demos, to make sure the item in question has a version for this body!

In the pic below, I’m wearing a rather sultry dress that’s a recent release from Blueberry!

Baby I'll change, my mind

I’m also wearing one of LeLutka’s new release for Hair Fair 2015. This event is winding down… it ends on July 26th (which is also Bandana Day). Remember, Hair Fair is a charity event, raising funds for Wigs For Kids! The gorgeous skin I have on is PXL for Wayward Carnival. My beautiful necklace, based on Hermione’s Time Turner in The Prisoner of Azkaban, is from Cae for Wizarding Faire 2015. This event is also coming to an end this weekend; July 25th is the final day. Oh, and my eyes are Buzzeri’s new release for the new Epiphany gacha event.

Reverse

A few final notes about the new Belleza bodies… they include an updated hud, with a lot more alpha cuts, a (very) improved fit around the neck, alpha save slots and some really cool features that, to be honest, I’m still learning! You can read more about the update on Belleza’s site. Please note that this post is NSFW!

The Third Eye

Tableau Vivant released this awesome hair with a built in hat for Hair Fair 2015. For those of you who aren’t hat lovers, there’s also a version available without the hat. But the hat makes me think of Maria Von Trapp or something. It’s so dramatic and huge and awesome. I decided to pair it with these seriously cool eyes from Chop Shop available at Wizarding Faire 2015. They include a third eye, which is optional but so neat! It moves! There’s also a version with gold metal, but as I prefer silver, that’s what can be seen below. I usually prefer very realistic eyes, and these are a bit more dreamy, more doll-like. But I think they’re gorgeous, and I feel really cute wearing them. Especially in this skin, Aribeth, which is a recent release from Essences.

There’s a big sale at Essences for the rest of the month, and while Aribeth is not part of that sale, plenty of other gorgeous skins are! So if you need a new skin, definitely check out that sale before it ends. The nail applier I am wearing on my Maitreya body is also available at Wizarding Faire, from The Wicked Peach. It’s an applier called Grimoire, featuring house colors and I’m wearing scarlet because I’m a Gryffindor.

Does this hat make my third eye look big?

The little cottage behind me is from Larkham & Co. and can also be found at Wizarding Faire. It’s really adorable, with a cute single room on the ground level and stairs that lead to an upstairs room. I plan to do another post that will show more of this cottage in the coming week, so stay tuned. My dress is an older release from coldLogic, but I wanted to point it out anyway because it is materials enabled and it downright shimmers in the right lighting (with the proper graphics settings). Materials are definitely a cool addition to the SL world. One final Hair Fair note! You can find a list of all participating stores, by sim, on this post on the Hair Fair blog! It will help you navigate this huge (four sims!) event. And remember, all sales help the great charity Wigs For Kids.

Coming soon to a Fair(e) near you!

There are two events opening this weekend. One is Hair Fair, which celebrates it’s 10th AMAZING year of raising money for Wigs For Kids, with every transaction donating all or part of the proceeds (signs will tell you how much) to this fabulous charity. Ten years, guys. How incredibly awesome is that ? Hair Fair opens July 11th at 12 am SLT (give or take a few minutes). If you are anxious to demo without lag, or just get a head start on making your wish list, you can join the demo group to save all the demo goodness! I highly recommend that, as it helps speed things along and it’s just fun! It’s a great way to discover new stores, too.

Copy and paste the following into local chat and click the link to join the demo group: secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about

You can find out more about Hair Fair, and get maps and slurls (once open) on the Hair Fair blog.

To learn more about Wigs For Kids, visit their website. Also, while at Hair Fair 2015, be sure to grab one of the amazing bandanas created for Bandana Day. Bandana Day is July 26th (also the final day of Hair Fair 2015), and for this day we honor the courage and strength of kids (and adults) fighting conditions that result in hair loss by donning a bandana. Bandana Day bandanas are created by SL residents and 100% of the proceeds go to Wigs For Kids. There are a lot of amazing, creative options (I can’t wait to show you the one I picked!), and they’re only L$50 a piece and for a great cause.

I am wearing one of Exile’s Hair Fair releases and my fellow blogger is wearing one of Elikatira’s. We’re also both wearing necklaces by Cae that will be available starting July 12th at this year’s Wizarding Faire. This event was one of my favorites ever when it debuted in 2013, so I’m truly thrilled it’s coming back. In fact, it inspired me to start reading the books again! And we’re both wearing outfits you can find at the current Rustic themed edition of Uber.

Summer Friends

It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend of awesome with both of these amazing events opening, so be sure you don’t miss out!
