Daenerys

Daenerys

Today it won’t be so much a fashion post as I have been playing making my own version of Daenerys Targaryen from A Song of Ice and Fire, aka the books on which the famous serie Game of Thrones is based upon. I guess I should have picked white hair for her silver blond but it is not offering enough contrast in Second Life so I went for a pale swedish blond. The eyes are the eggplant color from IKON Ardent line.

I was very fortunate this morning to find in my inventory the new Patrice skin by Adam n Eve. Sachi Vixen is proposing us a pretty, fresh and smooth face, available now at the store. By the way, if you are not using the SLink mesh hands Avatar Enhancement, the HUD for Adam n Even skins is only 25 L$, a real bargain. The picture below is a bit cleaned but I haven’t altered the colors and such so you can have a better look at the skin.

Small edit of the post as one of Sachi Vixen’s friend runs a fan site about A Song of Ice and Fire, Westeros.org . I couldn’t have found better when I have chosen this skin!

By the way, it is funny how I never see views on flickr go up as quickly as when I am making lingerie pictures. I wonder what it would be if I were taking nude pics!

Baiastice Sophie Mature Skin

Baiastice Sophie

Baiaistice has released a new skin, Sophie, which is a bit special as it shows a mature woman when we are used to see young (too young even sometimes) faces all around the grid.

One of the remarkable traits of Sophie is her wrinkles are soft though present so they are not overpowering everything else in the face like it is often the case with older looking skins. If you want a skin which reflects better your real life age or are searching for a face which would suit a more mature character, Baiastice Sophie skin is definitely an option to remember.

Sophie skin has a lot of options, including four eyebrows colors: black, blonde, red and grey. It also had a tattoo layer to smooth the body if you think it looks too old.

About colors

Hello,

Bobo Blue 2

Yesterday, I have been using another computer to show the last pictures I had taken to a friend. while I did that, I was struck by a change of the colors which were not at all the way I remembered them. They used to be a bit more vivid, asif a orange warm filter was applied all the time. Later, I told about this to a another friend who told me she was seeing them a bit whitsh and then advised me to check my screen settings. After some quick tests, it was quite obvious I was lacking some blue and green and have reajusted my screen settings.

I now see things quite differently. A fun detail is I have always thought my pictures had too much red or yellow so I was trying to correct them thanks to the curves in photoshop. Now, I see them much paler than what I thought. I guess I will have to change my windlight settings for the next pictures.

About the styling now. The new tunic and tied big belt from Fishy Strawberry have inspired me this hippie chic look with a new feather vest from So Many Styles (which I have slightly recolored to match the belt). For the chic part, the EXPERT hairstyle from LeLutka is adding a luxury touch.

I am also wearing the new skin from ADDICT, RAIA. I like the way it looks feminine and less sweet and young than a lot of other skins on my avatar. It is definately worth a try though it does not come with plenty of options like we are used to with many skins now, but dark and light eyebrows. You cannot change the eyeshadow or the lipstick with tattoo layers made specifically for Raia and the cleavage option is on the undershirt layer. Old viewers people will be happy to find a skin built the old way while new viewer peoples might feel like this is not enough. It is still a beautiful skin which should suit a lot of ladies.
