More from Skin Fair!

If you haven’t been to Skin Fair yet, you still have time! The even runs through March 31st, so be sure to get there before it closes. Today I have two skins available at Skin Fair to show you. One thing I love about blogging events like Skin Fair is the chance to discover great stores I didn’t know before the event. I wasn’t familiar with either of these stores, but I will definitely be checking them out regularly now!

First up, from Anymore, is Hazel. This skin is so pretty and soft. It has a youthful feel, and I decided to capitalize on that with a quirky, semi-dorky look. My glasses are from Mon Tissu. The gorgeous necklace is from Cae and is called Sakura. It’s currently available at a new event called The Boutique, brought to you by The Liaison Collaborative. The eyes I am wearing in both of these looks are also a new item, from IKON, at The Boutique. Also, if you’re curious about the decor items, they are tagged with notes if you click through to Flickr, and you can feel free to ask questions.

Anymore Dorky

I paired the skin with hair from Exile, the adorable saddle shoes Tres Blah has out at Collabor88. A lot of people have complained the Tres Blah shoes were too expensive. I have to admit I hesitated when I saw the L$388 price tag on them, but I am a sucker for saddle shoes and these are so cute and unique. They are well done, and I am likely going to go back and grab another pair. No, they aren’t “cheap,” but the quality and creativity is very high, and that counts for a lot for me. My pants are from Greymoon and were available at The Outlet. I’m not sure if that round is over, but if it is, Lyssa usually releases her items in her mainstore after, so either way look for them! My top is so cute, right? It’s from One Bad Pixel’s recent release, and I am in love. It has a hud that lets you change the color of the belt and the shirt that’s under the sweater (just to clarify, it’s all one piece – you can’t wear just the sweater or just the shirt). I’m a sucker for any item that has this sort of control. It makes a piece so much more versatile and an “investment.” Oh, the cute pose in this pic is from Grafica and is part of their Pose Fair release called per donna! I’m excited for Pose Fair!

Anymore

The second skin I want to show you is from Envious. Bella is appropriately beautiful. I love the purple eyeshadow on this one. I love purple. The blushing cheeks on this skin inspired me to blog it as a bride! Plus, I’ll use any excuse to marry Rad again, even if it’s just for pics. 😀 The gorgeous gown I have on is from Sakide. The dress is mesh, but the lacey, sheer top part is a jacket layer you wear under it. The dress works without it, too. But I loved the look, it was so soft and detailed. I felt utterly feminine and girly wearing this gown!

Bridal fantasies

The gown has a secret, seductive side, though… and I had to be sure to show you that, too.

Now and forever

Finally, in this last pic you can see the LaGyo headband I have on with the alternate veiled option. It felt so retro and mysterious, so I knew I had to use it. I will warn you that I had some trouble finding hair that worked, and only came up with this LeLutka option after I saw the lovely Oakley Foxtrot wearing it with the same headband (so ty Oakley!).

I take thee

And last… I have to share this one, even though for blogging purposes you can’t really see anything. I just loved this WL so much, I had to snap the drama shot, too.

You are my dream

What can I say? Our RL/SL wedding anniversary is coming up (April 6th in both worlds)… I guess I was feeling sappy!

More Skin Fair Previews!

I have two more Skin Fair 2013 previews for you. First up is the gorgeous, glamorous new skin from Izzie’s. Asia comes in multiple gorgeous tones, and it was hard for me to decide which I wanted to feature. Ultimately I went with the one designed for gingers! I’m not usually a “ginger,” as my preferred shade is more of a blood red (in the case of Truth, that’s even the name of my shade!). But I’ve loved the Pumpkinpie shade from Truth’s Fades pack since he debuted the Fades, and rarely have a reason to wear it. So, Ginger Lucie makes an appearance below!

I wanted to play up the glamour of this skin. Like all Izzie’s skins, you get a ton of eye shadow and lip options, and Asia also comes with funky, dramatic eyeliner choices. I am wearing the Brown lipstick and eye shadow options. Sometime last year I bought this sexy shorts romper from Hucci when it was at Collabor88. I’ll be honest, it shows more skin than I usually do, and I haven’t worn it, except in an Embody ad, since I bought it. But it struck me as perfect for showing off the gorgeous new Bejeweled jewelry set from Cae, which is now available at FaMESHed. Like all the sets from Cae, this one is texture change. Both the jewels and metal have multiple options, but I went with silver & emeralds. What’s really cool about this necklace, though, is that you also have the option of hiding some of the chains, so it’s really versatile. I feel like royalty or a celebrity wearing this set!

Dripping In Emeralds

Here’s a close up of the gorgeous Asia… so, so pretty. Soft, as is the hallmark of all Izzie’s skins, but also elegant and sophisticated. Still, if you wear it “bare,” without makeup add ons, it’s also fresh and casual. If you like your skins versatile, definitely check out this one (or any of Izzie’s skins!).

Izzie's - Asia - Skin Fair Preview

Next up… I knew the talented London Dailey of Pink Outfitters and The House of London made gorgeous clothes, but I didn’t realize she made skins, too! So when I saw her new Fresh FX Chanel, I knew I needed to try it. I love, love, love the unique shape of the lips on this skin. I went for one with dramatic, smokey eye makeup. I’d been struggling to figure out what hair to wear, but Truth saved the day by releasing Teddy just in time. Love the glamorous, messy, bedhead look of this style!

Fresh FX - Chanel for Skin Fair

To show you just how talented London is, here’s her Elle dress for FaMESHed this month! I paired it with the Plum Patent Marilyn sandals from Gos Boutique. I’ll admit, I might’ve used the hint of purple in this dress as an excuse to buy purple shoes, but really, can you blame me? Also, let me just say this… I love side boob. Cleavage is great, and it certainly is sexy, but it’s so much more expected. The high neckline and open back of this dress, with the hint of side boob just screams “elegantly sexy” to me. On a final note, pictures do not do the details of this dress justice, so definitely go demo it at FaMESHed for yourself.

Blue Mood, Purple Shoes

More from Skin Fair soon…

Snow Rabbit For Skin Fair 2013

I had the chance to preview this gorgeous mesh hybrid avatar from Snow Bunny. Nea will be available at Skin Fair 2013 (on Sim 1) when it opens to the public on March 15th, and runs for 17 days. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the mesh hybrid avatars, most of them involve your regular avatar body and a mesh head (often with add ons, like teeth, eyes, etc). Nea is a mesh head. It includes a very nicely detailed skin you wear to match the head perfectly. You can change the eyeshadow, lashes, lips, cheeks and eye color. You can also, as I did in the following pics, wear the alpha that doesn’t cover your eyes, allowing your traditional system layers eyes to show through. It will still alter the appearance of your eyes a little, but I thought it worked well with my Lucid eyes from IKON. There’s a very in-depth demo, and there’s also a web manual for this hybrid av, which I very strongly suggest you check out here before you buy it.

This first picture I want to share is a raw shot, except for cropping. I wanted to show you the details without any manipulation. Isn’t Nea adorable??? I am utterly in love with these eyelashes.

Snow Rabbit Nea (raw shot)

One of the reasons mesh hybrid avs are becoming popular is the range of facial expressions. Nea blinks, can close her eyes and mouth and smiles. She also squints, which is crazy cute. In this pic, with my eyes closed, you can see the gorgeous eye makeup. I chose the smoky green, which nicely matched the Field shade of the lovely Valentina E. Couture floral Romance dress I was wearing.

Wishing & Hoping

Finally, I just couldn’t resist one more gratuitous shot that emphasized the stunning lashes and overall adorable quality to this mesh face. Nea is cute personified.

Languid

More sneak peeks coming soon! Also, no slurls will be published until the event is open, so be sure to check with the official Skin Fair 2013 blog on Sunday!
