I’ve always made my own shapes.  In the almost 10 years I’ve been in SL, I’ve purchased exactly 2 shapes.  1 was the first shape I ever had after Ruth, and the second came after a long hiatus when my connection to my SL identity was broken.  (That’s a subject for another post!)

So I’ve finally gotten around to making shapes available to the public for purchase. Since the mesh head and body revolution seems to be going strong, I figured I’d start there.  So many people have asked in various in world groups for help with their new perfect bodies and faces, so for cheap prices, I’ve made a few starter shapes for the ladies who want to get their curve on.

Below are a few of the shapes I’ve made. I’m open to requests! ❤

Come check out my shop!

 


Machinima

28May16

26680713814_aec4c3c9cd_oThis is a still shot from my first attempt at not only Camtasia, but any machinima in general.  I grew up in a very culturally diverse area where bachata, soca, dancehall, reggaeton and reggae permeated the airwaves. So when I found these dances, I was so happy, and have been waiting for a chance to use them. Paired with the new bikini from Cynful, my trusty sarong from Rebel Hope and the perfect braids from Homage, I hope you get a taste of the island love I grew up immersed in when you watch.

May flowers.

17May16

I’m not a floral kind of person.  In RL, 90% of my clothes have skulls on them. But if you were lucky or in the know enough to be part of the Luxe Box group this month, you got a bevy of gorgeous springtime dresses, vintage knotted tees from Foxes, hair, furniture, a build, and all kinds of gorgeous things for a ridiculously low price.  I absolutely LOVE this model of subscription box shopping.

And since I just built myself a brand spanking new gaming rig, I can now play with shadows again!  It’s been too long. However, I don’t have my graphics programs loaded yet, so I went with raw photos and a stock filter from flickr.  Not too shabby for an algorithm!

Foxes Rocks

07May16

Obligatory Foxes fit.  I can’t help it.  I know every blogger on the grid has covered this outfit but Dani & Tyr of Foxes (and a ton of other brands) fame are goddesses of mesh and I am a sworn devotee. Aside from the hotness of this bodysuit/stole/headphones combo, I wanted to point out this perfectly matched septum piercing.

Yeah, but aren’t piercings a dime a dozen?

Nope.  Not when you can customize every aspect of them to the nth detail!  If you’re not familiar with IT!, I highly suggest you go check out her store in world or on the marketplace.  Many of the creations offer tiers of customization including 10 different metal options, 16 different jewel options, no jewels, twice the jewels, etc.  I mean, variety is the spice of life, isn’t it? We’re all trying to be unique, sexpot, snowflakes, so step up your customization game and check out IT!  Foxes-Rocks_DONE

The Mechanic

Who doesn’t like a good retro feeling? I’ve recently been taken with a relatively new store to the skin making game, called Insol.  So far there are only appliers for Catwa heads and one for LOGO, but these skins are so beautiful I literally bought one in every shade!

Khadijah

05May16

I’ve waited years to buy a new African toned skin because 90% of what is sold on the grid as such has no trace of recognizably ethnic features.  Just dainty little European noses and big round eyes with a really dark tan. Chocolata, a skin by BodyCo. (the company behind the TMP heads and bodies) was one of the most stunning skins I’d ever seen and was the last one with pixel melanin I bought way back in 2011 (because frankly all that TMP stuff is confusing as hell to me and way, way too expensive for my taste.) Until yesterday…

I saw this new head from Catwa called Cindy, and immediately recalled a skin I was so taken with from Atelier Pepe that didn’t quite fit on another head I had, but I thought the shading would fit this mesh superbly so I had to try it.  I fell in love!   I hope you do to! khadijah_001Body: Maitreya –  Lara

Welp. Secretary got burned out, so I moved in and am ready to fog the place out with new looks, old favorites, and regular rants about the little grid we live on away from the big one we’re all avoiding. New posts and credits… soooooon!

With love and lust,
