I was recently looking at the Luxe Box site and noticed something new “All past Luxeboxes are available to purchase at our in-world boutique starting on the 1st of every month. You must join the Luxe Box group to be able to purchase them. All past Luxeboxes are available for L$2,000.” So if you really loved something in one of the boxes, to me this is a good deal.
In Luxe Box for July:
-tres blah- Ken Kimono
Foxes – Lacy Bralette – LuxeBox July
REIGN.- STACEY WEDGES
The skybox from Scarlet Creative and the round chair that I’m sitting on are also in the Luxe Box!
Several months ago, Laq put a teaser on flickr for a mesh head and I couldn’t wait to see it in world. Laq has been a store that I’ve really loved in Second Life almost since I’ve started Second Life so I was super excited to what they made!
I’m just going to talk about some of the thoughts that I had about this head while wearing it. Above anything I say, please go and demo this head and play around with it for yourself. You can check out the head in world here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LAQ/179/66/29
The hud is beautiful. I like how there are options for hairbases, eyebrows, makeups, etc. On different pages there are slots to save favorite looks, and expression that the head offers.
The front facing head has very delicate and feminine features. I like the variety of make ups on the hud. I love that Laq has released all of these omega friendly skins too. If you wore one of the skins, like Pearl – you can now see how it looks either on your Laq Mesh head or a different head all together as long as you have the omega hud for your head.
A few things that I think needed improvement on the head are:
The profile to me looked sharp and unfinished, lacking in detail. I did have a bit of a problem fitting my favorite hairs on the head. Some mesh heads let you adjust some of the head slides because of this but with the Laq head I could not. The built in hairbases for this head are really nice though.
I would love to see more heads from Laq though. However, I would love to see more expression, a head that is better adjustable for rigged mesh hair, the option to turn the freckles on and off and a more refined profile. That being said, I think long time fans of Laq will be super pleased with this release as well as those just discovering Laq. I can wait to see what the future hold!
Just a quick reminder, but Summerfest Closes on July 10th, and if you have not gone now is the perfect time to go! There are a ton of things at Summerfest that I have loved this round and it is my favorite yearly event.
Culprit made this ride-able pet, but we just cuddled. The baby krakens are from Half Deer and the little floatie with the drink is from RC Cluster.
I’m wearing a bikini that is from Zaara, and the sand on my body is from Izzie’s. Izzie made one of my favorite things this year. I thought that the sand idea is genius as well as the sunburns and sunscreen that she made.
Anyhow! I hope that you do get a chance to go check everything out, it’s a great sim for photos too.
Happy Monday! I have more good things to say about Summerfest ’16! I took this picture on the actual sim the other day with this kite from Boogers, notably there is also one with Pizza on it from what I remember. These kites are really fun and I’m not using a special AO in the photo, its one that comes with the kite that lets you fly it.
I’m also wearing a really cute swimsuit called Bette from Stories&Co. by Flowey, this is available at Summerfest right now along with this updo from Tableau Vivant.
Do yo ever feel like you are surrounded by sharks, casually swimming by? This is definitely a dangerous looking situation but spoiler alert: I live! I just had to wait out my time being quiet and still until the sharks moved on!
These sharks, they are very well made from Jian which you can now shop at Summerfest for. This bathing suit is the sharkini from Tetra, and my surfboard and paddle are from Balaclava. Those three things you can grab at Summerfest! The slurl for Summerfest is here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sandy%20Shores
The hair that I have on is a group gift from Truth!
So Summerfest will be starting soon (tomorrow June 18th) and I was lucky enough to get a preview of it. I took these photos at Summerfest. It’s a beautifully decorated sim and hands down my favorite once a year event in Second Life.
There are a ton of bikini’s available but this one from Paper Arrow is a favorite. Izzies also made some really cute fun in the sun type of things such as sunscreens, sunburns, and sand. Anything that you can think of that would be related to summer! But seriously, everything is cute. Summerfest does not disappoint!
