So SKIN FAIR 2015 has finished, *blub*. The doors have closed for another year, but WHAT AN EVENT. It really was brilliant this year, and I enjoyed every minute. I purposely didn’t blog everything at the event because I knew I would struggle to keep up as you can tell with the delay on this, my final event post, BUT my final offering for you is a bit of a 2-in-1 triumph.
First of all, PAPER RABBIT skins. A brand I’d heard of but never tried, so SKIN FAIR 2015 was of course the perfect opportunity for me to give them a whirl, but my experiment was actually due to the fact that I’d been given a new mesh mouth to play about with, this time from SOUL.
Now as you know I’m quite enamored with my PXL SWEET LIPS that I blogged just before SKIN FAIR 2015. They’re a bit pouty/grumpy though, and I don’t want to look like that all the time (99.5% of it maybe, but occasionally I’d like to have a wee bit of a grin on my chops!) So thank goodness for SOUL KISSERS, a range of mesh mouths that cover a huge wish-list with their range; Closed, Open, Smile, Vampire, Orc AND Neko are all available for a cheap-as-chips price of L$599.
If you’re a SOUL skin wearer you’ll be delighted to know that every single Catalina skin shade is covered in the skin applier that comes with the HUD, plus there’s nine luscious lipstick shades from that skin line too. These are Omega Applier ready, and we’re promised that quite a few skin creators are planning to expand their range to include SOUL KISSER appliers, so I decided to hunt such a brand down and kill two birds with one stone, as it were. (Note, I wouldn’t actually do that because a) my aim is dreadful and b) I wouldn’t be throwing stones at birds..)
So, that reasoning brought me to PAPER RABBIT. I’m wearing the Willow ‘Cotton Candy‘ skin in Peach tone, and I chose this because I was seriously drawn to the eyeshadow colours, and the fact that the appliers I purchased (For my Maitreya body) included HEART SHAPED NIPPLES. (A friend had a photo on her wall of a girl in RL who’d had her areola tattooed to make them look heart-shaped and it looked super cool. (Either that or she was blessed at birth) I thought it was a GREAT look, so I was super eager to get the skin on and see how it looked. Fabulous is the short answer!
Guys this is just such a pretty skin and super fun to wear, it really is. The make-up is beautifully applied. I mean, LOOK AT THAT FACE! JUST LOOK AT IT!! I mean if that’s not a face that doesn’t need a serious amount of kisses then I just don’t know what is; it’s absolutely beautiful. I thought I’d seen all the best make-ups at SKIN FAIR 2015 until I saw this face and fell fast and hard for it. The details don’t just stretch to the face either, all the shading across the body is pretty darn fabulous, and again those nipples! OOSH!
But back to the point of the PAPER RABBIT PURCHASE, what was the SOUL KISSER like? Well, the picture above should give you some idea. I initially found it a little difficult to apply but that’s because I’m impatient! Having said that it’s not exactly rocket science to fit these lips though, so once I’d tweaked and twizzled and added the applier I was soon in action, and you know, I think they look great! They have a lovely shape to them, incredibly pert and pouty and kissable, and it’s just so nice to see some mesh chops that show teeth and the potential for a smile.
So with that in mind I went out and bought the ‘Cupid’s Pout-Smile’ version, and well, see the results below, doesn’t it look authentic and girly and just, well, super nice?
I really love the combination of this Cotton Candy skin AND the Soul Kisser. It helps that the lipstick on the applier is a scrumptious purple-pink tone that just works utterly beautifully, I’m super-chuffed with it, and I think it makes for a super pretty Kitty. Incidentally, Cotton Candy includes a no-brow version (much to my delight) so I added some of my favourite brows (JUST MAGNETISED ‘Diva’ brows) and TRUTH’s latest release, ‘Fynn’. I think the result is just outstanding, don’t you? So, here are your instructions for today: Go to SOUL and check out the SOUL KISSERS range. I did pop by the PAPER RABBIT store but this skin wasn’t available yet so perhaps Helyanwe Vindaloo is working up to it?
Pester her for the speedy release of this one, it’s bloody lovely I’m sure you’ll agree!
