Old and New from Fusemelon and Imagen

Aemilia Case has rebranded her hair store; what once was Philotic Energy now is Fusemelon, with new hair styles and textures, and an expanded product line.  In skin news, Imagen has released new versions of the adorable freckled Irene skins for the Skin/Shape Expo.

Let’s start with the new Imagen Irene 2.0 skins.  They’re appropriately named — this is an updated version of the Irene skin, rather than a whole new one.  Rack Brautigan, the creator, has done a bit of tweaking to improve the overall look of the body.  First, there’s a warmer, generally more rosy tone to the skin.  Also, check out the changes in the breast shading, ribs, stomach, belly button, and knees on the front side.  The rear view shows new shoulderblades, spine, knees, and heelbones.

No changes have been made to the face, which is fine with me.  I’m quite fond of the face.  The all-over freckles are pleasing without being too heavy, and the nose and mouth fit my shape very well.  There is a new set of makeups released for the skin fair, and they’re both adorable and versatile: lightly applied pale blue eyeshadow, a natural face, gentle eyeshadow smokiness, and a classic killer red lipstick with winged eyeliner.

Now, let’s talk about the hair.  I’ve been quite fond of Philotic Energy for some time, so I was totally excited about a rebranded new store, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The store itself is cute and airy.  It’s well laid-out and easy to shop through.  And the new stuff is yummy!  I’m showing hair today, but the new Fusemelon also sells clothing, jewelry, and eyes.  Good stuff.  Anyway, look at the hair.  Aemilia Case, the creator, has always had a unique style, in the way she puts together her prims, and the new stuff is no exception.  Like all good creators, she continues to improve with each release, while I continue to be in awe.

With the new build and new products come new hair textures, and they’re yummy.  Now, I have to confess, when I first noticed that the color selection had been completely redone, I immediately IMed and whined, “Where is my Clinker?  What am I to do? Whyyyyyyy?”  I should have held my tongue; once I tried on the new shades, I fell in love, and I like my new Red Spice even better than I liked my Clinker.  It has a slightly more brown-auburn tone, without losing its essence-of-redness.  Also, the new textures are just delicious.  They’re richer and more three-dimensional, with more dramatic highlights/shadows, keeping with current SL hair trends, and showing talent and attention to detail on the part of the creator.

And we all lived happily ever after, run-on sentences and all.  The end.
