Hi all! You’ve seen a billion posts now about Skin Fair 2013, I am here to over saturate the feeds a bit more with it, because I want to, and it made me feel pretty <3
Snow Rabbit has this gorgeous mesh head out. Now I love mesh heads… I don’t wear them an awful lot because I do agree with a portion of people that say “you all look the same”… it doesn’t bother me looking the same as someone else if I look pretty and the looking the same is well made and textured, it makes for a different to normal look anyway, even if you do end up looking generic, but I was so impressed with Snow Rabbit’s head that I couldn’t help myself! If you want to read a super thorough walkthrough about Nea, you should go and read Gogo’s post here.
Nea comes in a “Head Package” with the following options: S@R Hybrid Avatar Head Nea, S@R Hybrid Avatar HUD Nea, S@R Hybrid Avatar Mini-HUD Nea, S@R Skin in Milky White, Natural White, Natural Beige, Bronze, and Dark (both reg and cleavage included), S@R Eyes, S@R Mesh Alpha (with eye, without eye), S@R Tears (by NODe+), S@R Mesh Shape (all fairly small), S@R Face Light (you won’t really need this but it’s there!). The first thing you will note is that all the options are changable via the HUD, so it’s important you don’t lose that! You can change everything from eye colour to skin tone, lipstick to eyeshadow, moles or no moles, more than one mole! tears on of off… there are tons of options. I would like to see more in the future as the lipgloss is very neutral, but it’s a really great start. You will find Nea blinks, cries (if you attached the tear node) and moves her mouth at her own will, and it can be tricky to catch a photo how you’d like, I admit I didn’t read the Q&A so there may well be a way to freeze the face you want! I think she is a SUPER cute face, with enough options to begin with, but hopefully with room for many additions! I feel so pretty! I LOVE NEA MORE THAN MY OWN FACE.. for now.
LOGO has some new additions for the Sadie Mesh Head out at SF13 and they’re glittery and gorgeous! So easy to add the sets to your existing HUD, you just drag and drop then use! I have showcased below all the options, but as you can tell you can mix and match all 16 Lips and Shadows however you want, and along with the makeup options already there, so you have soooo many countless and seemingly endless combos to make!
Whether you fancy some glittery emerald lips with a pink smudged eye, or neutral sparkly lips with some deep smokey liner, I think you’ll find you have a lot of options here that will satisfy your needs! I haven’t showcased the Sadie Head in all her glory but she is a step up from the Chloe Head as you can mix and match expressions and she comes with ears and hair bases and all sorts of wonderous goodies! I also love the hi resolution eyes you can get, they make it look all that much more realistic and some of them are just gorgeous, wish i could get them just as mesh eyes!! With so many options to choose from including nose, cheeks, eyes, lashes and makeups, Sadie makes for a gorgeous addition to any mesh lovers collection, yes, that’s right, i’m the weirdo with the Head Collection *sinister grin*
Finally we have two new hairs from Truth! Both are gorgeous and lovely and belong on my head and look just SWELL! He’s a guy that knows how to please the ladies, or so I hear *smirky grin*. You can choose from a side pony with little clip, or a more whimsical over the eye style that looks perfect with a dreamy face!

and shake your BUM BUM BUM BUM BUM… oops, slipped into the Birdie song there. SOZ.
Eclectic Apparel is one of those stores that caters for all your needs, whether you want jeans, jumpers, a fancy dress, a warm cardigan, a plain old tee, a pretty skirt… it has them all. Their latest VIP Group Gift is really pretty! It’s a short little dress, perfect for christmas, in a polka dot style affair! It comes in the loveliest shade of pinky red. If you aren’t a member, you should be! Also worn here is one of Truth’s new hairs I blogged previously, some Half-Deer horns and the YS & YS discount skin from the brand new spanking TDR Fusion! The nails I am wearing are the new Mesh Diamond Edition nails from Pixel Mode, these bad boys change with the size of your hand, no more resizing or fitting!! YESSS.. more about them at a later date.
Another newish release from Eclectic Apparel is this lovely skirt. The Polly Skirt is currently available a FaMESHed in an array of beautiful colours, it’s a pleated number with the cutest little tied belt! It’s a very sweet little skirt, perfect for pairing with almost any top you can imagine! I chose to pair mine with the gorgeous Secret Store item from Collabor88! It’s so prettyyyyyyy, and you can’t see here but it comes with a beautiful damask style pattern too! My skin is Glam Affair and is also from C88 and my hair is one of the many Alice Project Advent Gifts in a special Christmas texture!! Sooo pretty!
These are the colours of the Secret Store top that you can find at Collabor88! They are gorgeous.
Finally, a Christmas offering from Eclectic Apparel! CHRISTMAS SWEATERS!!! HOW CUTE ARE THESE??? I can’t even describe how much I am going to stroll into this store and buy every last one of them as soon as I can! The texturing is gorgeous, the pictures are crisp and clear and just.. unf, I love them. I paired them with some new Floral Jeans from Reila and a Modish skin exclusive for the Winter Market (I forget the slurl, I will update asap), again the hair is an Alice Project Advent Gift in the special texture! WEEE!
The Floral Jeans from Reila are just gorgeous! So vibrant and pretty, different colours that will match almost anything you could want to wear. These aren’t all the textures available, but I wanted to give you an idea of what you might want to buy!
Just for good measure, this is a close up of the Modish skin I am wearing above, I did have a little play in PS to soften it up a bit, for practise so I thought i’d throw it out there!

.. I have been a bad BAD girl. I vowed I wouldn’t visit The Arcade today, I’d give it a few days to calm down, of course I didn’t stick to that! SO.. I made a new vow as soon as I landed.. I wouldn’t spend tons of money, I would have max of 4 goes on any machine I played, I faired well to start with, moving on despite not getting what I really wanted… then I reached both the Schadenfreude and Fashionably Dead machines. I haven’t managed to collect all of the cute dolls from Schadenfreude yet, but I did, after dropping SO much more money than I intended to in the machine, get all but ONE of the Mesh Heads from Fashionably Dead… It’s like a disease, once I see something I want, I have to get it and I wanted the VAMP head, which of course was a Rare, the rares churned out, I ended up with 8 spare rares in total (all gone, sorry!) but NO VAMP! ARGH! I had to leave, or i’d be spending my entire months tier there… I left and then my good friend Katya imed me and said she’d found me a trade!!! I LEAPED back onto the laptop and traded my little heart out, and now, I think (I could be wrong, please don’t tell me if I am, I CAN’T GO BACK! EDIT: I missed a couple out.. I found the pics on my HD after I did the collage LOL) I have them all, so I couldn’t help but come and make a little post to say that The Arcade is WONDERFUL this time around, same as last time, and these Mesh Heads by Toast are just one of the few amazing items you can obsess over for a while… you should visit <3
They might not be everyones cup of tea, but they are stunning, each of them comes with four tones (skins can be found at the FD store to match if you need them) and several eye colours, you can also tint them and even add shine if it’s something your heart desires! I can go to bed a happy girl… tonight at least <3
or.. ON WITH HER HEAD!
LOGO released this GORGEOUS mesh head and I gotta say, for a person that NEVER tweaks her face to fit anything EVER, this is just GORGEOUS. I don’t really care that I don’t look like “me” I look pretty and fine and unnnnfff I kinda wanna do my own face right now.
First off before you think OMG it’s going to cost the earth, it costs precisely $L2499 for ALL of what you see, with excemption of a few addon HUDS for extra makeups, which are all under $L250!! I think it’s a fookin’ steal!
Let’s take a look at the tones:
You can get Alabaster, Bloom, Almond, Amber, Cocoa and you get soooo many options in each pack you get 2 Mesh Heads (with 0 or 16 body fat), Eyes & Teeth Mesh, Head Alpha, Mesh Settings Storage, Shape (with 0 or 16 body fat) and tons of extra tattoo layers with different nipples and ALL sorts. I chose to wear my own shape with the head, and it fit just fine, no problems at all, but you can always swap your own digits to the LOGO shape provided if you’re worried, or swap the digits from the neck area to a copy of your shape… just have a fiddle!
There are tons of makeup options, and if you purchase the add-on HUDS (pictured below) you get a ton more! I haven’t done all of them, only a few, but you get choices of blush, lipsticks, eyeshadows, lashes and eyebrows, so it’s a really versatile head too! You can get from perky peaches to darker chocolate browns, smokey eyes to just a lick of eyeliner and no blush to rosy cheeks. I absolutely LOVE that this has eyelash options too, you might not notice unless you click through for the bigger picture but there are barely there, just a hint of mascara ones, to fuller, thicker ones. ALSO… you can change the nose on the head too! If you don’t like the default one (the big picture in the middle is how the head is when you put it on) so you can have a huuuuge play and fall in love.
Not only do you get the pleasure of mixing and matching makeups, you can make expressions! YEP! 12 of them! I LOVE IT! Look at my face… first i’m all innocent, then i’m a bit surprised, then i’m giving you the stink eye… wait no no I AM SURPRISED AND SHOCKED, now i’m laughing… I had so much fun with these, they are going to be super useful in pictures if I can’t quite get the look I want and like I said above I am HAPPY to have this as my face, I don’t care if it’s all over the grid god dammit, I WILL PUT MY OWN SPIN ON IT! I know people are going to be like “but you look like everyone else”, I don’t think it’s true, I’ve seen pictures of people in it, that I think I differ from and Gogo blogged about it too and I think we look slightly different!
These are the “extra” HUDs you can buy, it gives you a rough idea of what you can expect… or as I like to call it. TONS OF EFFIN FUN! I am so in love with this release it’s just not funny, thank you LOGO for doing such awesomeness!!!
FIRST! New at What Next for Lazy Sunday are these AWESOME prints!!! I love them, I love things in frames, I like to shove them everywhere (not there, perv)! There are a good variety available, and you can also get four of them in a set of four (the bottom right). They say the cutest, loveliest things and you need to go and buy them all. NOW.
NOW… 5 million new hairs, and I haven’t even snapped ALL of them! Here are Truth’s three new hairs. All lovely, all mesh, all very different! Meet Ariel, Rebel and Josie. Ariel and Josie both have a lil braiding going on for that calming boho vibe, well at least in my head. Rebel is the kind of hair I’d expect mine to look like in the mornings, and get very disappointed when it is not like that at all, all poofy and blown out and well tamed. Yeah, that doesn’t happen in RL for me . All three are ADORABLE, but i think Ariel is my fav of the bunch!
Next we have three more new releases from Exile! Breathe Me, One and Only and Almost Had You are all mesh hairs, and all gorgeous, as per usual. I think my fav might be Almost Had You, it looks like an updo, but it’s long at the back, so it’s an up and a down do! The other two styles are similar in the way they are long, wavy and sexy! I do love all three of them tho, Kavar is really rocking the mesh and his fades are STILL my favs!!!
Two new styles from Ploom also, hair makers are spoiling us this week! Meet Jemma and Kami! I looooove Jemma! Such a sassy style, a big, poofy pony with super long bangs on the side, I do like a bit of a whimsical style now and then! I also love Kami, but I’m not entirely sure it’s very me but it’s tres cute with it’s braid across the forehead, I am loving all these braids!
Last but by no means least, Skins from Reila!!! Again, I am not entirely sure they are me, but I am trying to diversify a bit and make myself step out of my comfort zone, try new things, gather new looks… The skin itself is gorgeous, but the lips on my shape are not quite right. I did play around a bit with them but I think they are meant to be hugely pouty, they did grow on me tho, and I was particularly taken with the Group Gift Halloween Skin (the Charcoal one). Reila skins strike me as skins for people who like something a lil different, a little out of the ordinary, the colours are striking and I will definately be persevering with trying to get my face to fit them!!!
All the poses I used during these shots were from Ploom also!
All SLURLS are on the Store Locations Page in one place for ease and… stuff
You get a BOOM… Headshot kinda picture today!
This hair is NEW from Alice Project for The Costume Ball Event! Demonia is a Cyberdread style (I made that word up, is it real??!) It comes in two bits, the base with goggles, and the actual dreads (or “lox”) themselves! You can change both parts different, and you can even have a billionty different (ok just a few) colours of dreads if you want! There are a variety of sections you can choose to click to change colour, on the very detailed HUD! The textures are also changeable, but SL was being a bit of a dillhole and wouldn’t let me.
The skin is from CStar as is the Miss Scorpio Skin. CStar do a different skin, each month, and puts them in a Gacha machinet at just $L10 a pop, the price goes up by $L1 per day after that and there are around 70 odd different skins to collect. They all have the same makeups but come in different tones too! The great thing I love about CStar is that they will buy your unwanted Gacha items back FROM you for a certain price if you like and there are various areas around the gacha machines with unwanted items that are now set for sale, including some super rares, and older skins too! I couldn’t resist getting this one, with the blood stain, the eyes are a bit bolder than I’d normally go, and the lips are pouty, but hey.. a girl has to look different sometimes! The final item is from Nantes, a new store on the block and this is the Creep Collar! It comes in a handful of colours, but the black worked for me. It’s mesh, it’s cute.. and it’s also creepy as it has teeny tiny spider webs on the edges!!!!
That’s it for now, folks!

That title really doesn’t work, but it’s there, so you’ll have to deal with it!
This gorgeous Piano pose prop is one of !bang’s Cinema item and I am just now getting around to getting it out of my inventory, I thought it would look perfect with my new dress from 22769 and I couldn’t resist trying to take a pic a bit out of my comfort zone AKA: not in my skybox LOL! So I popped it down on my decking and took in the beautiful surroundings, sadly I had to do this all alone *foreveraloneteardrop*, but this Piano is built for two baby! It comes with a variety of poses, and they work for couples too! Lovely jubbly.
I couldn’t justify just leaving that picture without getting a few better snaps of my outfit and ensemble! So… this is the 22469 dress for Zodiac, it comes in four different variations and I fell in LOVE with it as soon as I saw it, it’s so gorgeous and different! I am not a huge “dressy” person, but this… this is fab. I paired it with the new booties available from Decoy, also a Zodiac item, you’ll find a bit more about them at the bottom of the blog! I haven’t taken off my Pink Fuel skin (well I have, but I soon put it back on) from Costume Ball yet.. IT IS SO EFFIN GORGEOUS! I CANNOT DEAL! and I squee’d earlier when Hely posted a teaser of the Costume Ball hair so I have that on too!
The hair comes in two variations, with and without mask, in all the usual colours and gorgeousness. You also get a solitary mask to wear with the without version, but I wanted a clean shot of my face. An absolutely STUNNING hair, and the mask is colour change so you can match it to anything really and it’s glittery. YOU HEAR ME PEEPS? GLITTERY!!! A fantabulous updo for any occasion, but I really do think it tops this look off perfectly.
The booties from Decoy are some stunning pieces of meshwork, they really are! I am amazed more and more each day by what can be done with mesh, and these are no exception! Highly detailed and stunning, they come in three colour choices: Red, Brown and Black, each colour pair has two sipper choices: Regular and Zodiac. The only thing I would change about these shoes, is to have an option of gold or silver zipper detail and studs, I am not a huge gold fan, but that is the most miniscule of detailing and definitely nothing to put me off them! NO!

SAKIDE is fast becoming one of my favourite places, it’s full to the brim of wonderful, and sometimes different costumes, clothing, accessories and more! Here are just a few of the newest releases for you from various events!
This is the Naughty Witch Outift, shown here in Black but available in other colours. It comes with boots, nipple slip dress (compete with pasties!), gloves, and hat.. oh and panties… to protect your witchy innocence!! It’s the perfect “sexy” outfit for Halloween if you are looking for something a lil traditional, but that oozes sex appeal too!
This dress is something a lil different… it’s one of the outfits that SAKIDE released for Cinema! This mesh dress, aptly named “Graceful Dress” is a pretty lace number with an open back, it comes in both blanc and noire and complete with non rigged lace blindfolds and a special smokey makeup from PMD!.
This final look for the day is the Cracked Heart Outfit! There are two other styles availalbe (halloween pumpkin and purple pumpkin, but this dripping heart caught my eye. The outfits come in all standard sizes, but this time the tank has 2 add-ons, to make it look longer/different etc! So you’re really getting three looks in one, not to mention some lovely singles!
The hair I am wearing in all my pictures is the new Alice Project hair for Zodiac that I blogged yesterday, the Steph II style!
Finally, the skin I am wearing is one of Amacci’s newest releases in fair! This is Hazel. I’m not entirely sure this is what I’d expect for a “Fair” skin, it’s darker than I thought it would be bit it’s gorgeous, it makes me look a bit more mature than usual, which is a good thing, not a lot of people like to look cutesy all the time
Hazel comes with 12 different sets of makeup and a “clean”, each skin can be purchased separately or in a fat-pack. If you get the fat-pack you will get a shape thrown in too!
Each makeup comes with 2 skins – one basic and one with enhanced cleavage and the “clear” skin comes as a bonus in ALL packs! You also have a cleavage tattoo, a small chest tattoo, 3 eyebrow tattoos and 4 eyebrow shapes.
There is a pack of 10 lipstick tattoos separately and i have mix and matched them with the skins above. Overall Hazel is a very pretty skin with some striking facial features, a cleavage to die for and not a seam in sight! Some stunning work from Amacci.

A bit like Rico time, only like… 400000% better. Hottie Cooterati’s Zodiac event starts it’s newest round today with Scorpio! As you can imagine there are a fair few “Scorpion” inspired bits and bobs, as well as mucho other gorgeous items. Here are just a couple to start coverage of Zodiac off on What *IS* Willis Talkin’ About?!
This gorgeous necklace is from A:S:S and is called, aptly: Serket’s Servant. It comes in Black and White and also with and without sting, as soon as I saw teasers for it I knew I had to have it! It’s that little bit different, but a whole lot of sexy! It goes perfectly with the new Alice Project Hair that is going to be available there: Steph! This is Steph II, obviously you have probably worked out there is a Steph I! This version is sans bangs, and it’s a beautiful flowing style, that comes in various sizes (it’s mesh) and it’s an infinity style, so works with any HUDs you have that run on Infinity system or any you might want to go and buy!
The pose I am in, which you can’t really see all that well, but I can ASSURE you is awesome, is part of one of the two sets that aDORKable has out for the event, it’s from the Provocative Pack, which includes 6 (plus mirror) sexy poses in a variety of lying down and kneeling positions (Gus.. NO -.-).
The skin is Izzie’s FUYU Skin from the Costume Ball that I blogged yesterday and the eyes are are part of a set from Delusions that are at Zodiac also! The set of eyes comes with various colours included, and includes prim parts! (mesh, prim, whatever!… EYEBALLS PPL).
