Decoy

Frecklefaces like makeup!

We talk a lot about shading, about the qualities that make a skin “good.”  And then we get to the makeups.  My face is the part of the av I spend the most time looking at, and I usually pick skins for blog posts based on the “look” — usually, that’s achieved through makeup.  If you don’t buy fatpacks of skins, it’s the makeup that determines which skin in a particular line we want to buy.  If a skin creator doesn’t have the makeup we’re looking for, we’ll often walk away.

Above, you can see three makeups each from three different creators.  The first row is › Continue reading

Footwear Expo: Ankle Boots

I like ankleboots.  They’re comfy.  Neither as blatantly trendy as the bootie, nor as sexy as the knee-high boot, the ankle boot is a versatile in-between, working well with a variety of looks. That said, they’re still fabulous!  The selection shown here is from the Footwear Expo, which ends tonight!

Oh, and I know the last pair aren’t really ankle boots.  But they’re cute, aren’t they?

Footwear Expo: Sandals

Wheeeee! More footwear from the Footwear Expo!  I was planning on saying something about wearing open-toed shoes in winter, since it’s a virtual world, and our toes don’t get cold or wet, etc.  But, why do we always comment on the weather?  Why do we do so more often in the winter?  It’s funny how our physical worlds have such a strong influence on how we see our virtual worlds.

Ok, back to the shoes.  Obviously, these are sandals, a selection from the Footwear Expo.  All but the second pair in the first row have prim feet, so it was an adventure for me to learn all the different tinting HUDs.  I’m still a bit of a noob when it comes to tinting feet, so please excuse any errors.  What I find most interesting is that with the tinting HUD often do far more than just tinting.  From resizing to toenail colors to recoloring individual parts of the shoe, these HUDs offer far more options than old-fashioned click-to-change-color shoes.

A few final notes › Continue reading

Footwear Expo: Cozy Boots

Winter has arrived in Second Life.  Delicate snowflakes drift down to coat the trees and we get to pull our our coziest-looking winter wear. This of course also means cozy shoes, from little booties to fluffy snowboots.

These four pairs are a few of the offerings available at the Footwear Expo, ending today.  The first are perfect for curling up in front of a fire with your honey; the others are adorable outerwear choices.  In RL, I worry about wearing these types of boots, but in SL, I’m safe — dirty slush can’t soak into my cozy boots and ruin them!
