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!

Something Different

Turquoise and orange

Yesterday, a friend made me discover a new skin store called The Skin Shop. The name is new but the designers are not as they are behind The Body Shop and a lot of other stores. With the shops, they are offering us a new shopping experience. The system is still in a beta test. So far, you can only purchase skins without enhancements (make ups). If you want more details, you should visit the The Shops in SL website. It looks like a lot more is coming.

There are 36 different tones available so be ready to spend a lot of time in the store trying all of them. You can purchase demos and products thanks to a HUD you have to wear in the store. It is a bit disorienting at first as it is a new way to shop in world.

Even without makeup, there are already enough options to play with. You can combine several skins to have a unique look through tattoo layers. In the above picture, I am combining Chocolata and Alana, while in the picture below, you can admire the full set for Pussy.

Navy Green

Navy Green

A new mesh store has hit the grid, its name is Nyu. They offer a selection of mesh clothing for men and women. I have chosen those large high-waist pants in blue for their elegancy.

This week, I have paid a visit to store I did not know really good, MOLiCHiNO, where they have a collection of pretty mesh clothes. I am wearing here a summery alter top in green.

Raw Shot with PXL Kate

Hart Larsson of PXL has finally released his very long awaited new skin, Kate. As always, I am very happy to wear this skin which shows details and a grain lacking in many others brands. Though, this time, where I like almost everything in the skin, I have to say I am not a big fan of the mouth which has too high lip cleft for my taste, though I know a lot are enjoying it as it is in fashion in Second Life lately. It is a matter of personal tastes. I am showing above an unedited picture so you can judge objectively by yourself.

Tanaquil Avril 2012

Here is the edited image I am using as profile picture and be warned I have photoshopped the mouth so this should not be taken as an example of the skin. I usualy prefer something more neutral as you can always tweak your shape to make it appear smaller or bigger. I am still struggling in world to have the mouth the way I like but editing the picture in photoshop was way faster as I am running out of time this week-end. I insist on the fact it is a matter of personal tastes. A lot of you will enjoy fat lips. I highly recommand the skin as it is much better than a lot of more popular stores but yeah… I would have prefered other lips.

The eyes are from Ikon and are my new favorite color of the sunrise serie I am wearing all the time: light sand. While the hair are another awesome release from Elikatira.
