Summer Breeze

Mer GirlIt’s amazing how different you can make a skin look by adding a makeup layer.  It’s one of my absolute favourite things to do cosmetically in Second Life, and it not only extends the life of your skin but it gives you so many options too; far and above the standard  extras you tend to get in a regular skin package.  ( I would say Amara Beauty are the exception to that rule, you sure do get a lot for your money with Shantia’s skins!)  The skin is exactly the same as in my previous post, but I’ve added a  longer hairstyle that a mermaid would be proud to wear and a splash of tropical eyeshadow from

The skin is exactly the same as in my previous post, but I’ve added a  longer hairstyle that a mermaid would be proud to wear and a splash of tropical eyeshadow from VEECHI, along with this gorgeous seashore inspired necklace from REALEVIL INDUSTRIES. Perfect holiday look and you’ll find the necklace, eyeshadow and so much more at the TROPICAL SUMMER FAIR 2016.  This is a really lovely event that’s got EVERYTHING for virtual Summer 2016.  You’ll find bags, bikinis, beach footwear, LOADS of jewellery and body art and it’s a real joy to walk around and explore.

The hairstyle is from DE LA at UBER and it’s so beautiful, it tumbles perfectly over the shoulder with just the right amount of tendrils and side-sweep to frame the face. I love how it looks at the back too, it hangs beautifully down the back and looks very realistic and I would ruddy kill for this amount of body in my hair in real life, alas no amount of volume spray is going to give me that so I shall just stick to my virtual version for now! Shopping list ahoy!

Jewelry Fair 2014: RealEvil Industries

Jewellery_001Never judge a book by its cover. Or so the saying goes…

The same could be said for Second Life; never judge a company by the name. If you’d asked me what RealEvil Industries retailed in-world I would have said something to do with role-play perhaps, I dunno, swords and armour for the medieval crowd?
Imagine how surprised I would have been to discover that this brand is behind some of the most satisfying necklaces, earrings and wrist-watches that you’ll find anywhere on the grid. They have a stand at JEWELRY FAIR 2014 and I strongly suggest that you visit. You’ll find a number of outstanding items on display at great prices and oozing quality, with timepieces and jewels that feel substantial to wear and look extremely expensive too. But here’s the thing; they aren’t at all!
In this picture I piled on some of the pieces that you’ll find at the Jewelry Fair.

First of all I am wearing the ‘Lux Aliki Necklace & Earrings’ set, which features 9 different pearl and metal colours to choose from. This whole ensemble adds an incredibly classy touch to an outfit, and combined with my hairstyle I feel like I’ve created a modern take on Audrey Hepburn’s classic ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ look. Even more astonishing the set is just L$199. An absolute bargain price for such quality and versatility!
On my left wrist I’m wearing the ‘Lux Viva Watch’. Again this item features a  HUD packed with options for 8 different faces, metals and leather designs. It’s also a working wristwatch that you can set to your preferred timezone.

Zooming in on this piece is particularly satisfying because it’s bursting with detail, but then again so is the wristwatch set that I’m sporting on my right wrist too, the ‘Revox MTX Watch‘. It comes in male and female versions and can be worn with an additional bracelet should you so wish. This is a really grand, chunky and substantial statement piece and is super-customisable. You can choose from ten different metals, and also change the colour of your gears, leathers, cogs and numbers to make a combination that is truly individual and will really get you noticed. I’m delighted to have discovered this brand, and it’s one I will definitely be wearing a lot in the future.

Look out for me wearing more RealEvil Industries items in future posts too!
