Earlier this week I was rudely interrupted whilst shooting the ‘Happy Hours’-scene. Love and I however took this opportunity to shoot a long-due photo together. Shoes off and tiptoeing in some cute beach wear and bunny ears; it was an absolute blast.

I am wearing {Le Fil Cassé}‘s latest release at Blush Continue reading

Cyanna and I recently threw a little penguin party and it was an absolutely blast. We dressed up in our coziest winter attire and jammed out to some classic South Pole tuneage. Yokai released this set of penguins as a gacha at The Project Se7en, and they are absolutely adorable. Continue reading

Girls night out

Click to enlarge

Admittedly, I have never had a girls night out. Perhaps it is due to the lack of youthful adventurism in my life or because I am far too introverted for such wild social events.

I’m not quite the party animal, unfortunately. My “squad” (10 points for millennial slang) and I would much rather spend a girls night in, watching scary movies and playing video games with a wide assortment of unhealthy snacks. However, I recently did have a virtual girls night out. Accompanied by the lovely Hara, we hit the SL town and stirred up some trouble!

I am wearing a jacket by Pixicat, which I purchased during their recent sale. In case you missed it, no worries! There are still plenty of other sales to spend all of your Lindens on, most of which are listed on the Seraphim sale tab. Besides that, I am also using The Sugar Garden‘s most recent release, which is an applier for the Catwa Catya bento head (that remains a tongue twister for me). Finally, I added a deep red lipstick by Arte to create a somewhat more sensual look.

Hara set up this incredible scene, using various items from The Horror! at The Arcade. Make sure you check out her blog for further information. It was great to see her again and take a photo together. I truly love collaborating with this beautiful lady and always have a wonderful time. Thank you, Hara-bear, for all of your loveliness and friendship ♥

Wasabi Duo

Wasabi Pills is one of my all-time favorite hair stores. I discovered them back in 2013, prior to creating my current avatar. Fast forward to 2016, I am happy to share that I am now part of their official blogger team. I am deeply honored and incredibly grateful for this wonderful opportunity.

MissAllSunday Lemon regularly releases new hairs at various events. In my picture I am wearing the Aspen hair which was previously available at The Forest and the Deirde hair, which you can currently find at Collabor88. I used the Lunar HUD for both of the hairstyles. This colour pack contains sweet ombre colours, in regular as well as rooted versions.

I also made a short video, showcasing a few of the newest Wasabi Pills releases: https://youtu.be/XdwH5dWySCs

Catwa Catya Bento Head

lGISb.jpg
Click to enlarge

Project Bento is an extension to the standard Second Life avatar which makes it possible to customize your mesh heads, similar to shaping your standard Second Life facial features in the past. You can read more about Bento in this short forum post by Linden Lab.

Before purchasing your first Bento head, please consider the following:

  • The head will only be visible on a Bento viewer. You can download the Bento beta viewer via the Alternative Viewer wiki page.
  • Project Bento is currently still in its beta testing phase, meaning that there will be bugs and glitches. Creators will do their absolute best to fix any bugs on their side. However, please remember that they will be unable to fix Second Life bugs.

Catwa – Catya Bento Head

Catwa recently released her first Bento head named Catya. Listed below are a few details regarding the head that I have not discussed in my video:

  • Expressions: Catya comes with 9 standard expressions. The expressions are currently only compatible with the default shape:

catya-expressions

  • HUDs: The pack includes an Animations and Master HUD. The last one of which is a replacement of the previous Main HUD.

catya-huds

  • Price: Catya costs 5000 L$ and comes with the following:
    – Alpha layers
    – Various gestures
    – Mesh head (with teeth)
    – Mesh head (without teeth)
    – Animations and Master HUD
    – Info & Updates Log
    – Rigged eyes
    Remember to try a DEMO before purchasing the head.
  • Troubleshooting: Join the in-world group called CATWA HEAD Friends for live chat support. Paste the following link into your local chat and click to join: secondlife:///app/group/29c5ca14-7e13-fdf0-c531-2507844a1eef/about

For more information, take a look at Catwa’s blog and YouTube channel. Both contain helpful information, tips and tricks!

Catya lookbook video

For my video on Catya, I displayed three different looks to show various ways of styling and shaping the head. You can find the custom shapes that I have used for these looks on my Marketplace.
