Hi! I’m head to toe covered in this month’s Collabor88!
My skin is from Glam Affair and the hair and the hair base is from Tableau Vivant. My outfit is from Tres Blah and the shoes are from Reign. My accessories are from Astralia and they are all available under one roof this month at Collabor88 who is having quite the fitness round right now. If you are trying to teleport into Collabor88, remember that they now have two shopping sims!
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.
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.
Today, opens a brand new round of Collabor88 for November. There is much to see and this is one of my favorite rounds ever!
I’m wearing a new hair from Lamb which is called Poppy, a new dress from Stories & Co. by Flowey which is called Selma. The necklace that I have on is from Yummy. My stockings are from Erratic, and my shoes are from Vale Koer. The skin that I am wearing along with the lip appliers are also at Collabor88 this month from Glam Affair.
I’m wearing a scary blood splattered dress from Candy Doll called Ophelia(you can also get it without the blood!)My bloody eyes and eye makeup are from Contusion and my hair is called Lyric from Doe = it’s a gacha and on my second try I got this rare!
The blood that I am wearing (not at the event) is from Ama. My skin is from Glam Affair from the Salem event.
I put a spell on you… and now! You’re mine! A new event called Salem started today and it lasts all through the month of October and I have to say that I am very much in love with anything that is Halloween theme to begin with and this is no exception. All the Salem and Gacha goodness that you could ever want is here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Salem/128/113/23

When mesh heads first came out I wasn’t super interested in wearing them full time, but since then as mesh heads have gotten more beautiful – I’ve changed my mind. In my opinion the best mesh heads right now in Second Life come from Catwa Clip of Catwa.
The head that I am wearing in these photos is a newer head (but not the newest) called Tumble. The fatpack of the heads are worth having because the animations are endless with them. I took a few photos of me making some silly faces but to really get the point – if you haven’t yet you should go on over to Catwa and try them out! You can do so here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Catwa%20Clip/144/114/24
On this head there are so many different skins and skin appliers. For example I love the eyeliners from Veechi, and the eyelashes, eyes, brows and freckles from Buzzeri. I’m wearing a brand new Glam Affair skin applier called Aurelia but the lips are from Deetalez. I love to mix and match the appliers and make it into something unique for me. If you are worried about looking the same it’s impossible as there are so many skins and appliers out there to get lost in and find a look that is truly you!
As far as what else I am wearing – Collabor88 has some fantastic finds this month. The bra and panties are called the Dita Ensemble and they are made by the Secret Store. The hair is from Little Bones and the Rose Choker and Rose crown is from Yummy. My poses are from Glamrus.
Uber opened today and I am loving this round. The theme is pumpkin spice and I’ve been wanting to do a “fall” type photo so I did today. This Ceres outdoor set from Trompe Loeil makes it really easy to do. I just added some trees, grass and a few more pumpkins behind me and I am happy with the photo!
Erratic has made a dreamy sweater, and this hair from little bones is just perfect. I also want to note that these jeans from Blueberry that are not at Uber – the boot version works perfectly. It’s getting to be colder out and if you want to wear boots with your jeans – these Mia jeans are perfect for boots!
