I like Cocoa, I like it like my men, with whipped cream.. OH SORRY, I was confusing the blog with plurk where apparently all the cybering happens.. or something…
So no-ones been forthcoming with colours and I haven’t had a bunch of spare time lately, I have a looootta stuffs going on (well ok, I have more spare time than I thought I would, but I’m doing the RL thing more atm :P), I wanted to do another colour post, but I couldn’t think of a colour (I really do suck, don’t I?) I also wanted to show off my new skins, so I decided to pick a make-up and go with one word from it, that word… was Cocoa! So I searched my inventory and picked things with Cocoa in the name, A new form of blogging WORD ASSOCIATION, HUZZAH!
So, my new skins, I am in LOOOOOOOOOOOVE. Stephanie Misfit of La Sylphide released Erin, named for ‘Kota Buck and oh em geee, I love them! I was so pissed when Ingrid didn’t look fantastic on me, but Erin actually does! I so wanted to buy the whole lot but ended up buying just a few… to START WITH! Erin is beautifully shaded, not to over dramtic and I really adore the face with it’s cute button nose and awesome make-ups. Ranging from bare-ish to brown, princess pink to ravishing red, i’m sure you’ll find a make-up that suits you! I’m wearing the Light Tone (there is also a Tan) and the Smoky Cocoa make-up and it’s just LICKABLE!
My eyes are from Tuli and are the Brown eyes, I do love Tuli eyes, well these particular ones, i’m not sure if they are still available, but they have cute lil sparkly white bits and come in both a bigger and larger size for those fusspots with fusses about eye size!
Hair is a collaboration between Celestial Studios and Last Call and it was from the Limited Release Spring Enchantress Set. The hair came in oodles of gorgeous colours and no less than 4 variations, some included flowers, this is variation 4 and it comes with a cute side clip and also one at the back. It’s an updo, which I don’t often wear, but it has cute lil side curls and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fringe on this, I heart it dearly!
When throwing this outfit together, like I said I just searched my inventory for Cocoa, I don’t think it actually turned out that bad, but it was an interesting excersise in seeing what different creators class as Cocoa, even the same creators using different “shades” of Cocoa, was fun!
I started off with a top from LaLa FooFoo, it’s the Belted Tunic and it’s a gorgeous longer style top with a lowish cut cleaveage and a black buckled belt wrapped slightly above the waist, very chic and sexy but with a hint of casual.. it’s that hint of casual that I thanked when the next thing I found were a pair of Cargo Capri’s from Viva La Glam. The capri’s are cutely casual with lil side pockets, tie legs (painted, not prim) although the seams aren’t all that fantastic, these are fairly older pants.
ETD made some pumps, I find these hard to call pumps as we don’t call any shoe a pump here, but they are pumps so uh… yeah. ANYWAY. The Starley Pumps come in print and solids, and I love the Cocoa shade on these, maybe cos they are a lil shiny? Iunno! But I do love them and i’m not a huge fan of shoes, so YYAYYYY Elika!
So that concludes my quest on the word Cocoa, I should find me some Cocoa eyes now, it’s a mission! A MISSION!
Now I want some real Cocoa, or Hot Chocolate, or maybe just some plain old wine >.> GAH no, it’s 10am! Coke Zero it is!
