“save me some time
just take me out
on A and 9th
save me some time
I always wanted to wake up
on the Lower East Side
you want me completely
and I’m ready
and it’s fine
and so I began
the double life
i began the double life”

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.
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.
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!
If I had Thanksgiving plans in Second life tomorrow, I would most likely be wearing this cut outfit from Atomic that is at N21. It is one piece and I love it. It goes great the little bones hair, the reign boots and the yummy necklace. I think that it gives just a bit of holiday twinkle that you need.

It’s rare that we find a shirt that so expresses how we feel about the day, or just life in general! This shirt is from Flowey – Stories & Co. and it is available at N21.
The skin which is a fabulous find is from Izzie, as well as the eyes and it’s coming to Uber tomorrow. I think that this skin is beautifully done. My hair is from Little Bones and is available at Collabor88.
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.
Blueberry has a fantastic lingerie set out at Mesh Body Addicts – which opened today and it is all very much customizable too! It comes with the ties that are either tied up or undone. I have also found a new head for myself at Mesh Body Addicts – the Destiny head from Catwa. A lot of great things there so do check it out!
