Attempted Ganguro

October 31, 2009

Its probably the massive amount of hunts I did during last year’s halloween that made me dislike the combination of black and orange so much, especially during this type of the year where we get them in overdoses. XD Nina introduced a new term to me – Ganguro. For those that do not know, Ganguro is a form of Japanese fashion where you have tan skin, light hair and colourful clothes and bright makeup.  And that’s what I hoped to have achieved in this outfit.

Well.. we were talking and we realised that not many sl fashionistas have taken this route before! So here’s a mini challenge: Make a ganguro outfit! hehez.. post the links in the comments below and i’ll do a round up at the end of the week?

Ps. Thanks Carolina for asking me to post with her! She is sooo soo soo sweet.. Check out the post here! <33

Sweater Obsession

October 20, 2009

I love Sayuri and Sayuri’s creations. The sweet Japanese creator is back with more awesomeness to fill our girly sides. Sugar by sugarcube – a line inspired by Japanese RL Fashion and a store which has the cutest logo ever. XD I’m sweating like crazy in RL but I can’t help going with the fall sprit and don on sweaters after sweaters in SL. Hahaz this sweater from Lelutka satisfy my sweater obsession, well for the week. I love the baggyness and the way it drapes the body. Just wished that fully prim clothing like this come in more than one size hmmph… but i must say the glitch layer is really well-done such that the sweater doesn’t look weird with my AO, which really moves alot ^^ so yay! Maitreya shoes are yummy yea? Well … you better agree XD I’m typing at 1am again and my brain is totally dead.. these words is not making sense to me… so.. muah for now and happy belated diwali!

Fall Through The Ages

October 1, 2009

Held from the 26th September to 10th October, the Skin/Shape Expo Fair has been on the tip of our tongues this past weekend. Here’s some of my favourites from the fair…

Often, I feel that the act of wearing different skins will help us look a certain age of our liking. You can’t age backwards in RL unless you are Benjamin Buttons (forgive my lameness) , only forward. But SL, you can do it both ways teeehee. Pink Fuel’s new release, skye would be one which allow you to remain in the 20s. One thing I love about pink fuel skins would be that irresistable lips. Its glossy and gives a slight pout without straying too much into the sexy side. On the sidenote, I love the fact that Mochi, Tuli and some other designers send their demos through their subscribo, especially for these type of events where the items are only avaliable in a lag-filled sim at that moment. Save us the trouble of going to the fair just for demos but rather, I feel that it lets the consumer make a more fulfilling trip when they hit the fair. I really appreciate this little acts of designers in “improving the shopping experience”. ;) The skye line comes in many “bold” makeups, with bright eyeshadows that really stand out. Secondly,  I wish every skin makers would provide brows option to complement the different hair shades. and I’m glad that both Mochi and Tuli (featured below) does so.

Tuli’s Bella is another skin which has been much praised about at the fair. It features a much more mature face from her last line Hope. Freckles seem to be the new “in” thing to include in skins. I’m not a huge fan of freckles but the ones that are well done, like these on Bella, definitely have a soft spot in my heart. If you look closely, there’s a little mole above the left side of the lips. XD There are only 4 makeups released at the moment and I’m looking forward to what other makeups Tuli has to offer this time round. *crosses fingers for some cute interesting ones hee*

Gala Phoenix Skins will always have a place in my heart, even though I haven worn it for some time. The old faces, lovely, breeze and vixen, have been updated with the new softer shading torso and new makeups. whee! ANEXX new boots are officially my favourite boots ever. the leather texture, the little details… there has been so much thought placed in the construction of this product. Its gonna be on my feets for some time im sure :)
