It has been such a awhile since my last post. 7 months to be exact! Long enough for me to forget ALL my passwords and exactly how to post in WordPress! Eeek! Am hoping that this will work but we shall see!
While I may not have posted recently, I have been keeping a verrrry close eye on the Bento mesh heads! I have tried most of them and fiddled with those shape sliders with the gusto of an enthusiatic baker! I also monitored the progress of Bento Mesh Heads over the past months. Ever cautious, I didn’t purchase one straightaway. Instead, I had a lot of trying them all with different skin appliers. Although I did make a few shapes for friends during my experimentation!
And …*drumroll*….I bought my first one. I purchased the Neve Head by LAQ which was on special offer just before Christmas. And fortunately, Glam Affair also had LOLA Skin on offer at Kustom9 and the combination is rather excellent and super girly which is in keeping with what I like. 😀
The sliders were edited from every angle to achieve this effect and therefore this face is pretty unique. You are welcome to try it on Markeplace and see what you think yourself!
>:Petal Shape Demo:<
Just one little caveat:
You must wear the recommended Eyebrows or you will get a different look.
PLUS, I used the customary striking Mayfly Eyes. Simply use the HUD provided to resize the eyes and move them inwards. It can be a little tricky but if I can do it so can you!
Hope you like <333
Hello there! Here is your chance to grab some classic shapes for your system skins. There are some very pretty and unique shapes on sale at [CS Shapes] for as little as $99!
Thank you, (Xanthe) xoxo
Oh ‘elllo. Been awhile huh? I don’t pop into SL that often any more. Too exhausted these days. But I did briefly over the weekend as I love FLF. Most of what my little ava is wearinf can be found at last Friday’s scrumptious event. Please check out Seraphin blog – most of what you see should be in the shops (albeit at the non reduced price). With the exception of the skin (Glam Affair Niki) and Shape @ [CS Shapes] These are my trademark favourites. 😀
Poses are Everglow. If you need any help recreating this look please IM or leave a comment. Thank you for looking in. ((Xanthe)) xoxo
This is my smart weekend look as I go around scooping up the bargains.
The sparkley Two for One Necklace is the latest release from RAMA which you can find at Shiny Shabby. Several variations to choose from. It was probably designed to go with evening wear but I like it better dressed down for the weekend look! And as you can see I still love my own faces and classic system skins which helps me retain an individual ava look. Chubby, round little face! ❤ Find a similar @ [CS Shapes]
The outfit is by Lazybones. Woodruff Shoes by Ingenue. Dotty Socks by fri.day. Fuschia Macaroon Hair Accessory by Lode. Poses An Lar. Kabrina Hair isby [elikatira].
This great, slinky little Mai Tai number is by Cynful @ The Dressing Room. Love the womanly curves on this Dress, particularly the hips! I might have widened my own the other day but I loved the overall effect.
The cute Kabrina hair is Elikatira which I picked up on FLF. And Shape is Donna @ [CS Shapes].
Lariat Wrap Necklace is RAMA. And the Tapered Ears are Mandala. Poses are An Lar. Niki Skin is Glam Affair worn with Romy Lipstick. Dottie sneakers from fri.day. Twlight Sea Shadow Eyes by Mayfly.
This is a great jumpsuit. Simple and yet super sexy. It doesn’t try too hard and you know it’s special. I am tempted to get a few more colours to suit my mood.
The Gigi jumpsuit is by Clef de Peau who as you know tends to make skin. But I love what they are doing in terms of clothes. Find this Jumpsuit at Kustom9. 🙂 For the other items in this look please see the previous post.
Sometimes when you delve into your inventory you find all sorts of lovely creations which you should be wearing. Like this cute Tapered Ears from Mandala. Anyway, the look was created around these ears and everything you see I have had for awhile. With the exception of the jumpsuit from Clef d Peau which I will be in the next post! 🙂 . Skin is Glam Affair. Donna Shape @ [CS Shapes] (face altered a little). And Hair is Truth. Unicorn Necklace by Atomic. Eyes Mayfly. Poses An Lar.
Now for something cute an fluffy. I spotted this adorable Clara Dress by The Annex at the Secret Affair. And the best part of it is that is it very reasonably priced! The Rose Gold colour is perfect if you love a little pink irridescent sheen to your outfits. See below.
By keeping things simple you fall in love with the outfit. It doesnt need much to complete the look. I thought the layered Irene Golden Pearl Necklace by Kunglers was perfect. Cute Minah Hair is by [elikatira] (FLF item last weekend). Mira Skin by Glam Affair. Donna Shape @ [CS Shapes]. Lipstick is from Caroline range. Gosh I miss GA skins! Rowena Heels in Blush by fri.day. Poses awkward.poses. And finally, Twilight Sea Shadow Eyes are Mayfly.
Hihihihi! Much as I love pastels (evidenced by the items posted in this blog), sometimes it’s nice to throw on something black and just go with it….especially if the look includes a few frills and a pretty headdress!
This look is by Tee*fy who tends to release small pieces which for the most part you can mix and match. The Hana Skirt was actually a previous release at Collabor88 and she released the Rhea Unbuttoned Top in the current round. Result = cute combo!
Did you guys do the last round of Midnight Mania? I did and picked up this Blanche Orange headand from Astralia. I missed out on the other items though. All I can say is get in there early next time girls!
The rest of the look is simples. Grace Hair is Entwined. Skin is Mira by Glam Affair (word with Romy Lipstick) and Shape from a selection @ [CS Shapes]. Eye Jewels and Velvet Necklace by RAMA. Twilight Sea Shadow Eyes by Mayfly. Poses are awkward.poses. Gold Rings by Mandala.
