The Laq Mesh Head = Trinity

laqonelaqq

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!

Fall is coming and for me that means pulling out my old favorite soft and worn flannel shirts!

My daughter Ryleigh of {Petite Bowtique} made these cute mesh shirts for the whole family.

I saw her wearing one and I was like you are gonna make those for Mommy to wear too, right? She was like yep and she thought it would be a cute idea to wear them and take a photo together as a family and I cannot say no to that adorable little face! So troops were wrangled in and we found a cute pose from .click. and there you go an adorable Autumn photo and we all match!

Entangled

So the jewelry that I’m wearing today is another set from Ms. Caelan Hancroft of Cae, located in Truth District. This set is a mesh set called Entangled and its just beautiful. You can change between many different types of metals effortlessly by clicking on all of the pieces or just one. I am also wearing a brand new hair from Truth, and this beautiful dress from Baiastice that is available at Fair, opening today. My skin is Saga from LAQ.

The pose in the first photo is from Focus poses, and the second is from Olive Juice. I also just wanted to remind you of Caelan Hancroft’s opening party today at 5-7SLT PM at Truth District. There is also a free gift if you join Cae’s group in the notices… so do come and see about that!

Cae’s – Grand Opening 11/17/12

One of the best, and most sweetest girls that I know on the grid is opening her store tomorrow which will be located in Truth District. I’ve seen this girl go from wanting to learn how to make things, to actually making them, and by each shared screen cap I’ve grown prouder and prouder of one of my dearest friends, Caelan Hancroft making her mesh dreams into reality.

Her new jewelry store – Cae, featuring handcrafted mesh jewelry is set for its grand opening tomorrow with a party. DJ Cajsa Lilliehook will be there tomorrow too spinning music from 5slt to 7slt p.m. Her new line has six brand new sets of fabulous mesh jewelry. The one that I am wearing in this post is called “Knotted”.

I hope you can all come and check it out tomorrow and see some of these pieces, just in time for the holidays! I am also wearing hair from Exile, eyes from Ikon, skin from LAQ and my poses are from Focus Poses.

One Voice – REPOST

one voice. July 9 – 15. fundraiser info.

Curio’s Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala’s fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the enormous amount of legal fees she will have to bare in order to fight these baseless claims.

The fundraiser will be held from July 9-15, with a blogger preview on July 8th.

Some participants include Flowey, BareRose, Black Lace, Belleza, Ingenue, Laq, Luck Inc, One Bad Pixel, Gos, Truth, Bent, Fawn, Cupcake, evolve, Glam Affair, ely, Lassitude & Ennui, Zanzibar, Adorkable, Ikon, League and many more.

This fundraiser is not only to help Gala Phoenix, but to also take a stand for the community of content creators, for many of whom SL is their main source of income. This could happen to any one of us, and it’s necessary that we stand up and fight back to ensure that it doesn’t.

Please contact Sophia Harlow or OMGWTF Barbecue if you’d like to participate as a content creator or blogger, and join the inworld group One Voice for updates and the LM when we open!

New @ Dressing Room Blue

A few things caught my attention at Dressing Room Blue today just as they opened for a new two week round. This dress from the ever amazing Baistice which you could totally dress up or down.. and this cute hair with the flowers in it from Exile.

Don’t know why but I liked it with some pink doc martens from Gos, torn up fishnets from blowpop and the same Linnea skin that I’ve been wearing this week. But this week at Dressing Room Blue there are many great finds, no fooling.

Luck Inc.

For the last few days I’ve been wearing jeans from Luck Inc – L.inc. I figured I’d show you because I really really love them. They come in three different styles for a reasonable price and this particular pair can also be worn with faun legs which is something that I’m very excited about for future wear. The jeans are very well done and I was quite impressed with them. The shirt in this post is also from L.Inc.

Pididdle – Satin Lingerie

Pididdle has released a new set of gorgeous satin lingerie that comes in just about every color you could ever wish for but I’ve only shown the baby blue and the silver, but go take a look because they are all gorgeous. Also the lingerie has an option to show a little “peep” in the back as show on the silver pair. I think it is very cute:)

I’m also wearing boots from GOS, the new Linnea skin from LAQ, and hair from Truth.
