Rose, is a brand new skin that comes out today from Glam Affair. I plan on soon doing a full post but I wanted to show a little teaser of this gorgeous skin. I’m wearing the tone Artic which is not my regular tone but today I rather love it.

I am also wearing a new necklace from Caelan Hancroft of Cae for the Serafilms event. You can find more info on that here: http://seraphimsl.com/2014/07/12/attack-of-the-sequel-with-the-godfather-part-2/

Alchemy at the Secret Affair

The Secret Affair is open and the Alchemy/Birdy gacha machine is especially dangerous. It is 100L a pull and you you must use caution playing this machine even though the contents are lovely. I quickly spent about 2k and I didn’t even mean to trying to get this rare white set.

It’s lovely though, isn’t it? It comes with two different white dresses, and bracelet’s, a choker, a thing for your shoulders and a mask.. and it’s just so pretty. You can visit the Secret Affair here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ippos/246/137/34

Happy Thursday! In this post, I am wearing a new dress from Ane at Romp, as well as a new collar that is also available at Romp from Lost Junction. This collar is really neat because it comes either unscripted, or open collar scripted as well as with a leash and handle in the back. My shoes are from Ane, at Kustom9.

My hair is new from Lelutka at Hair Fair, my skin is Glam Affair’s Kallisto at Collabor88, and the pose that I’m using is from Exposeur at The Liaison Collaborative. My tattoo’s are from Elska.

Tableau Vivant at the Hair Fair

Tableau Vivant has four brand new hairs available at Hair Fair which opened today. I should have snapped a picture of the back of these hairs because they are really cute but I’d suggest demoing them either at the Hair Fair or through the Hair Fair Demo Group.

For all things Hair Fair check here: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/2014/07/11/hair-fair-is-now-open-to-the-public/

I am also wearing the Kallisto Skin from Glam Affair and New earrings from Mandala, both are at Collabor88.

Glam Affair’s Kallisto at Collabor88

I wanted to do another quick post showcasing some new skin from Glam Affair which is available at Collabor88 and there is even a brand new tone! In the first photo I did a shot of all the make-ups and the new tone is called Exotic. It is very pretty!

This second skin, I shot six of the eight make-ups and this is the Asia tone from Glam Affair in Kallisto, just in a different tone. My hair is from Lelutka and my eyes are from Icon. If you’ve been meaning to go to Collabor88 but have not yet, today is a good day to go!

Where in the World is Sylvia Olivier? When I logged in to Second Life today I wanted to blog and keep my mind off of some things and when I opened this dress that is from Celoe.. it made me think of something that a much sexier Carmen Sandiego would wear to solve a crime.

I then thought of this hat and hair combo that will also be at Collabor88 from Clawtooth and this skin that is new from Glam Affair called Kallisto which will also debut at Collabor88. The shoes were a nice surprise to see from Pure Poison who will also guesting this round.

I am also using the Serious Business Suitcase from Pilot from a previous round of Collabor88 and my poses are from Flowey and available at Flowey’s Main Store.

This Lounger is pretty fantastic and you can get it for 300L at the Men’s Dept, and there is also a PG version of it that is a bit cheaper. It is from a new to me brand called Stockholm & Lima.

Getting Naked for Slink Physique

0slink2

On Wednesday, Slink had a new release which was a long awaited fitted mesh body called Slink Physique. I’ve been playing with it most of the day and I’ve even taking a few photos. Even in the most elaborate of poses, when it’s time to edit your photos there is not much that needs to be done to them.

I am using the appliers from Glam Affair that are at out the store now with this mesh body.

In the pack there was also an example of what you could wear with this. There was an underwear set and a dress as shown below.. you will have to spend about a half hour or so playing around with this and discovering what works best for you.

Some tricks and tips for the Slink Physique
I found that there was a little gap between the hands. You could wear bracelets to hide it or what I did was use the next smallest size slink hand which was XS. The feet don’t fit perfectly but it’s close enough and in the right wind light it doesn’t matter.

I suggest Avatar Opt 2 as a windlight because it’s pretty bright even on low graphic computers. I would also suggest enabling basic shaders and atmospheric shaders if you can.

The neck was a bit of a problem area for me but something that did help was going into edit my shape on the chin tab and I played with the chin depth and jaw angle and that helped quite a bit. Another thing that helps is good wind lighting and bumping up your graphics a little.

Thoughts

I like this body a lot, even better than the WowMeh. I can see myself using this one for more than just photos. I like the knees a lot and how when you sit you don’t have all that jagged weirdness on system bodies. I like that even though it’s mesh it’s fitted mesh and you can give yourself a little extra love in places that you were not able to before.

I don’t know if this is a possible thing but I think fitted mesh hands and feet should be the next thing to come along to go with the body. You start to feel like a bit Frankenstein after awhile with all of these mesh parts but this is the closest that I’ve come to having everything I’ve wanted in one item.

Sure, there are things that I’d like to see slightly improved but it’s pretty damn close to being perfect.

The HUD
The HUD is a bit too small on my screen. It’s hard to see the smaller buttons at the top on my Firestorm Viewer. One thing that you should take note of is on the alphas there is a sort of sheath to add a neck layer or hide it. I saved myself a lot of frustration unchecking this.

When I figured out how to do that I was happy. It worked best for me to hide it. The have a FAQ right here: http://docs.slinkstyle.com/physique/customer/ I imagine and hope that it will have more information as well as photos time goes on.

One thing that I would love changed about the HUD is that lets imagine when you are wearing shorts. Say the shorts are a bit lower in the front than they are in the back. It would be nice if you could hide something in the front that you can’t hide in the back.. or vice versa cause otherwise you might have to wear different shorts depending on the top that you are wearing.

The alpha HUD hides most parts but I would love to see that as an update one day. I think that you will be able to wear many basic things but you wont be able to wear say racer-backs and stuff with stranger parts that need to be alpha’d away. But with the fitted mesh dress that came with it in the pack it was perfect.

In closing, I’m super excited about this and what it will bring as far as new content creation. I feel like it’s going be something that will tie everything else in together and once it catches on it will be a must have and at 1250L it’s really a steal. I’m very impressed!

The poses that I used in this post are from Flowey except for the first pose which is from Infiniti.
