Perfect Fit Pixels – Neve – New from coldLogic

Snapshot_021

As a blogger who likes to have something to say in their posts and not just list items, sometimes, I struggle for inspiration. I may have a great outfit I want to blog but can’t think of anything to say in addition to just sharing the pictures.

Then….sometimes, there is so much bursting to come out that I have the alternative issue of how do I get this out on virtual paper and do it all justice. That feeling right there is what I am struggling with today. So much to share, all of it good and a blank screen. I wish I could connect my head directly to the keyboard and let it write itself but I’m scared it would make more sense. Ha!

When I log in for the first time each day I have a plethora of messages from various subscribos and a slew of group notices. There was one that really caught my eye this morning from coldLogic. I read the notice, sat back and beamed! coldLogic is introducing a new brand to their range called Neve which is specifically aimed at mesh bodies. Now coldLogic has been making their newest items with a SLink Physique option for some time and the majority of those work with the Maitreya Lara with a little tweaking but this is now quality clothing from them specifically made for a range of mesh bodies AND the system avatar. The good news does not stop there….

In addition to this, they have introduced a long-awaited and much requested giftcard system and introduced a new group for Neve releases which will entitle vips to 5% credit back on purchases. And wait….there’s more…

I bought two items from the store, tried to click on the colour I wanted to purchase, as this was how coldlogic items worked. You bought individual colours or a 3 piece fatpack right? Nopes, not anymore. Each of the items I bought came as a fatpack with colour changing hud, and in the case of the Neve Dominique CurlyQ in my second photograph the skirt and top can be completely different colours and textures so you have even more mix and match options.

I was also delighted that the dresses both had the Maitreya auto-hide feature so it’s one of those grab and put on quick and not worry about alphas items! Be still my beating mesh pixel heart! This is a huge development for users of mesh avatars looking for the kind of quality we’re seeing from Blueberry, Addams, Just Because, Bueno etc but with a completely different look and feel to it. I am looking forward to many more new releases in the Neve range from coldLogic!

I was deep in conversation with Inara Pey during the week and she told me about a sim she was producing on LEA6. I have been meaning to get over there and view her work for a few days. Inara can give you a much better background to what she aimed to achieve with Impressions than I could ever attempt. I highly recommend you visit and read Inara’s post and the information notecards you can pick up when you teleport in to the sim.

Illusion Point also opened it doors this week for their latest round. I love this event, it’s smaller and easier to get into it and has some gorgeous little stores from new-to-me creators as well as some designers you will all recognise. I am really becoming a huge fan of Musa! jewelry and these earrings are available at Illusion point and come in 3 styles including a petite avatar version. I topped off my look with this group gift from Glow Designs. The clutch bag comes with a colour change hud so you can match it up beautifully to almost any outfit!

There! I got it all out and I hope it was clear and informative as my mind does have a tendency to jump around more than a tad!

Quick LOTD for you all today with the recently released Bardot bodycon dress from Miss Chelsea that’s out now at FaMESHed. It’s a perfectly sculpted, curvy little number, available in 6 neutral colours and 6 brights.

We’ve styled it up with the Bollywood peeptoe pumps from JD available still at Uber’s spice themed round. I accessorized with a visor that’s new from Foxes, and a heavy gold chain from Mandala. While Harper added some sultry shades.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

FaMESHed opened it’s 3rd anniversary round today, with a ton of great brands participating and a lot of them offering free gifts as part of the celebration!

I was thrilled to be able to be part of this with Miss Chelsea, we’ve released this simple tank and buttoned shorts at the event and are giving away a pair of the shorts in an exclusive colour for free! So make sure you visit, join the FaMESHed update group and grab those. We made this set to be versatile additions to any inventory, it’s pretty easy to style them up boho fashion with some long hair, ribbons, beads and sandals, or go a little bit punk with some torn hold ups, boots and messy hair like I did here.

To finish off this look I added some new releases from Uber too. Their neon round was full of crazy cool items to choose from, and even if you’re not a fan of actual neons, most of the things came in neutrals too. I’m wearing the hair from Olive, glasses from Random Matter and bag from Zenith, all of which can be picked up there.

Hope everyone has a good weekend with lots of retail therapy!

Won’t let you out of my sight

.won't let you out of my sight

Ok yep, I gave this a very cheesy title but obviously it’s for a good reason!

I had a lot of fun playing Baywatch with 2 of my very good friends for this picture, even though they peer pressured me to change my display name to Pamela “in the spirit of things!” However, since they had made this fabulous life guard station and accessories, I obliged them.

You can find the station at Uber, which opened a new round today. In keeping with it’s “Miami Neon” theme, it comes in 3 bright neon colours as well as a set of 3 more natural shades. It’s animated to seat up to 3 avatars at a time (all the poses used in this picture are animations it comes with) and includes a bunch of matching decor. All for just 400L. It’s a great buy and a fun piece, perfect for summer which is getting closer every day. Taking this picture made me realise how much I can’t wait for some sunshine!

Hope everyone has a great weekend, don’t forget to pay a visit to Uber for some retail therapy.

Got a quick little look for you guys with a couple of new and recent items. This amazing fringe jacket is from Coco at April’s round of FaMESHed, there’s just a few days left to grab it there!

I’m also wearing a new hair from Entwined that is out now at Shiny Shabby. I love it’s casual wave, that creates an understated, sexy look.

I finished it all off with LaGyo’s necklace that’s out at C88’s Pretty in Punk round, and some recent release aviator glasses from Redgrave.

Definitely a short and sweet post today, hope you like it!

Shiny Shabby opens today with a new round and I’m super excited to share this dress with you guys, from my new brand Miss Chelsea. This will be our first event so I’m nervous and thrilled all at the same time. We decided to go with a vintage style, lace sun dress. Perfect for spring, easy to pair with sandals and a light cardigan, or tattoos and boots for an edgier look. It comes in standard sizes, and includes versions for the Belleza Venus, SLink Physique and we’ve made a version for the Maitreya Lara. The Maitreya version is not official, since the developers kit for that is not yet available, but all 3 of us in this picture are wearing it and it fits nicely. But please try the demo.

Also I simply cannot be more in love with this hair from Lamb. It’s for the TAG gacha, and even though I personally found this a huge pain to have to get the HUD, activate it, etc etc, when I was in a rush to grab the hair and take a picture, it was worth it, because it couldn’t have completed this look better.

Finally I completed the little scene with a new tyre swing from Cheeky Pea at Kustom9, a great spring decor item!

Glam Affair Katra Blogger Contest

Just another quickie portrait picture for you today. I missed the chance to blog this skin when it was released last month for Skin Fair, but you can now find the gorgeous Katra in the Glam Affair main store. There are some seriously amazing make up options with this skin, so if you didn’t try it out before now’s your chance!

I’ve added these new Sarrah earrings from Random Matter, which are out at Uber. I love big earrings so these are an easy case of win to me!

Ain’t No Sunshine

.ain't no sunshine

Alright, I know it’s been a while since I did a proper blog post. So here’s one right now! Did you know Lelutka released 3 mesh heads on Wednesday? If you’ve paid any kind of attention to blogs, Flickr or Plurk over the past week then of course you did! Well I had to give them a go to, so here I am sporting Leda.

Glam Affair worked alongside Lelutka as far as skin basics and also skin appliers, the other great news is that Maitreya was along for some of it too. So now the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and the Lelutka mesh heads will all match perfectly! I cannot be more thrilled that 3 of my most favourite brands on the grid are collaborating on these, and honestly, I’d love for them to work on even more together.

One of the best things about mesh heads (in my opinion) is the ability to use SL’s lighting and shadows all over the place, without the light hitting it at weird angles and highlighting unflattering parts (usually around the mouth area, especially on my shape where it’s quite pronounced). It can be a lot of bother in pictures, and usually I end up having to take a few different ones and layering them, just so that my face doesn’t look messed up. No need for that with a mesh head though. Just flawless light and shadows every time.

If you want to look picture perfect, I definitely recommend them. Make sure you have a good play with the demos and look out for more skin creators making appliers in the future!
