Lelutka – Bento, Simone.

1simonesimone

I will be honest here, I almost gave up on Simone. It just wasn’t feeling like “Sylvia”, you know?

One of the things that has changed since the coming of these new bento heads are the old school shape makers that have come back to give shape making a new life. To be completely honest I looked on the Marketplace quite a bit to find shapes that I could mod that felt close to who I see my avatar to be.

Two shops that became my favorites are here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/186667 and here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/94671 I tried many but they just had the right combination of sliders and price for me. So once I had a shape I was good to go, it was time to modify it. I must have modified it like ten different times to make it the way I wanted. But I feel that these shapes worked as an excellent base for me.

I like Simone, I do but there were things that didn’t work for me. The eyes wont calm down until I figured out that you had to center them on the hud. I still can’t figure out how to change my brows, and while the expressions are great I do feel that they could be differently organized. There are several limitations on the sliders that are not on the Catwa Bento head. I couldn’t get my eyes tilted quite the way I wanted. There were just little things that bugged me but overall I do like the makeup buttons quite a bit. I feel that I was able to modify a very unique face.

The biggest part of getting these heads to look right is the skin. The Glam Affair skin at Uber was quite perfect for me. Lucrezia, is the name. There are a ton of cute eyelashes and brows too. One thing that I love about Bento heads is you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to fit your brows how you want them. They are automatic now and I love it.

I’m curious to see if stores will release other versions of bento heads and with bento Second Life seems so much more open to possibility.

Just Because

I just had a to take a photo of this beautiful gown with matching fur jacket from Just Because!  The Christine Gown is now available at the Just Because mainstore!  The fatpack has some really pretty colors to choose from and if you need a gown to wear to an upcoming holiday party, this would be a great choice!

My hair is from Little Bones at C88 and is called Mara.  The little foxes at my feet are from Jian and my pose is from GlamRus.

Happy Holidays!

Greetings!
This outfit was gifted to my by Sophia Harlow (You can check out her blog here: http://sophharlow06.blogspot.com/) and is from Zenith as a playable gacha at
Kustom 9. She said that this outfit was me, and well it just is. She’s very smart and I’m super thankful for her love and friendship.

If I were to make a holiday greeting card in SL this year, I think this would be it, so why not? This year has been a hard one but I still have many things and people to be thankful for. Here’s to wishing everyone a much better year of happiness and joyful moments with loved ones.

Sparkle

Happy Monday!

I figured I would put up an outfit suggestion from my recent trip to Collabor88.  I feel that these sparkle leggings and silky top would be perfect to bring in the New Year!  The outfit is from Stories & Co. by Flowey and it comes in many more colors.  The hair is from Little Bones, and is called Mara, and my sparkle necklace is from Yummy.  It’s be a few days since Collabor88 has opened, so chances are you have a good shot of getting in now!

Seven

Today marks the day that seven years ago I started blogging in Second Life! So happy blog anniversary to me!! To celebrate I’m wearing this brand new jacket that is out at the Blueberry Mainstore. Today was the first day that it snowed in real life so I knew that I had to do a snowy photo too.

Winter/Seasonal stuff in Second life is my favorite, so I always appreciate having new things to love. My hair is from Truth and is called Ember. The shirt that I’m wearing with the jacket is an actual option on the hud, so that is pretty cool. Blueberry is great about giving people many options. The Melanie jeans that I have on are also from Blueberry and my boots are from Vale Koer. My pose is from GlamRUs.

I hope that you all stay warm this winter!
