Haute Punk Special Effects

Aubergine 3

The December Collabor88 collection is out and this time, it has a mixed theme of winter’s edge and haute punk couture, which for my taste, is just perfect while others might not be so interested in it. While I may not have purchased every single item presented there, I have to confess I have bought more than usual.

Aubergine 2

Today’s look is made with my favorite items: a mesh skirt from Aura, pants, sweater and boots from The Sea Hole, a top from Kyoot, a mesh scarf from Boom and a lovely skin from Illusory.

Aubergine

I would like to add a few words about the pictures. You may notice light effects around the character and on the background. Lately, I am playing with windlight settings but they don’t always offer a nice light for the face while other shadows are improved. To compensate, I am wearing a soft facelamp in Second Life and the special effects are appearing after post processing. I find it funny how things you don’t see on the basic picture may appear while working on it so I have decided to keep them.

Dunes Mathilde Shape

Mathilde

I have finally released a new shape for Dunes, Mathilde. She is a cute young girl 1m67 tall (5’7”) so she is rather petite for Second Life. She has wide hips with a small breast. I have been working on that shape for two weeks and have changed completely what she was supposed to look like at the start to finally be happy with her. So I hope you will enjoy her sweet face as much as I do.

You can purchase the shape on the marketplace and please, try a demo first, it is free!

For Mathilde’s outfit, I have paid a visit to the new Collabor88 collection where I have picked lace jeans and a kimono vest from Tres Blah. The cute and elegant pearls are from Yummy.

Insolence has released boots made in mesh. I just love the way the boots are bending behind the ankle with that pose, making it so much more natural. The design of the boots is pretty simple but very well done and realistic. They are among my favorite shoes at the moment.

When Sachi Vixen from Adam n Eve has seen a preview of the shape, she thought one of her skins would go pretty good with it and has offered me the pretty Hailie in apricot tone. I am sharing with you the result in the above picture, which is very cute.

Brown and Dots

Brown and dots

I am particularly fond of this new release from Chantkare for Project Themeoryas it reminds me a shopping day with my grand-mother who used to be a very elegant woman. I had convinced her to purchase such a brown dress with white polka dots, a bit more expensive than what she was used to and it stayed one of my favorite dresses for years. I was so proud to see her wear that dress to go out. I wonder where that dress is now. Anyway, it is too bad we don’t have the same size.

Hello,

Phonebox

It has been a while since I have written anything but don’t worry, I will not annoy you with a long text this time either. I just wanted to let you know the new CheerNo Femme fall collection is out. I have chosen the Vintage mesh dress in blue Klein. To contrast with that deep “outremer” blue, I have picked crimson accessories, including mesh shoes and a watch from Pixel Mode and a bag i have slightly tinted darker from Leverocci.

Second thing you have to know is that Nah! is having a sale. If you are looking for great jewelry pieces, everything goes for under 50 L$, with awesome bargains for earrings at 10 L$. The headband and the necklace are samples of what you can find there.

Finally, Illusory has a somewhat new skin available at their temporary location. The gorgeous Paige had been released already for a special event some time ago. I had purchased it at that time and I don’t know if there had been a skin line following that. Since then it has been improved and is now waiting for you in six wonderful skin tones.

As a side note, I am working on a new shape so it is normal if you do not recognize my avatar. It is not the skin which is changing it so much. Stay tuned for a release some day soon.
