More Fifty Shades of Uber and Hello Belleza Venus

Uber 100114

Lots of great stuff at this month’s round of uber and today is just a teeny tiny snapshot of what you can find there.  Everything your little avatar heart’s desire is represented this month:  From skins to shoes, from chair to bathtubs – you want it, then uber has got it!

Belleza Brooke, LPD and Zenith 1

I probably should do a separate post on this, but I really want to share how excited I am about the Belleza Body called Venus.  Let me tell you this, in every way The Mesh Project did wrong with their body – Belleza has gotten it completely right! The hud is a breeze to use and is so completely intuitive that my cat could probably figure out how to use it!  The boobs and butt are similar in shape to the Mesh Project’s and I happy very happy to announce, Cankles are not an issue with Venus. WEEEEEE!!!  Now in comparison to SLink Physique, the real win for Belleza is the way the hands and feet are scripted.  No more struggling to find the feet in your inventory because with a click of the hud, you can adjust the foot type instantly.  In my eyes, the way the Venus body is designed, including the hud, this is the future of mesh bodies in SL.

In the defense of SLink, my gut tells me that Slink might follow-up in kind with a one touch foot and hand script in the coming months AND she dominates the market with add ons for her body.  With that in mind, I think the savvy Second Life shopper will own both the SLink body and the Belleza Body.  I say this largely because it is my opinion that over time there will be a much more diverse, solid base of clothing and shoe designers supporting either product vs the Mesh Project Body; and some of these designers might choose to align with just one body brand.  Therefore, with a small investment in what – a mere 6K (LOL) – you will be good to go!  Sounds so simple right???

Anyway, that’s all I got for now.   All the details on my outfit and set (and a taxi to ~uber~) can be found below. So until next time, take care my friends and have a great Second Life.

Zenith for ~uber,

Zenith for Uber

Fifty Shades of ~uber~  opens September 30th and I have to admit I love seeing the naughty side of Second Life designers come out in style.  Featured here is a sneak peek of the fantastic Vintage Lady Vest Dress and Mirror Pearl Stone Ring from Zenith, which I predict will be on everyone’s shopping list for this round. I am also featuring in today’s photo one of the latest releases from DeeTalez in her new Ebony line. Laticia is a gorgeous face that also comes with separate lipsticks for mixing and matching. LOVE!!

Hello DeeTalez Alice, Good Bye to the Mesh Project Body

DeeTalez Alice

 

I have been featuring DeeTaleZ faces tons lately on my blog:  Not because I am an official blogger (I am not), not because I have tons of Lindens to spend (because I don’t), it’s just because I really like her faces. In the past I have made the mistake in my eyes of featuring skins on my blog simply because of their popularity.  No more my friends, no more.  Now, if I really fall in love with a face produced by whomever is the skin darling of the blogger  community at the moment, of course I will feature it and not because I feel like I should.

On the other hand, I am officially saying good-bye to another popular item – the Mesh Project Body.  Don’t get me wrong this body is absolutely sublime, and besides the CANKLES that I cannot seem to get past, it is nearly perfect in form. What I absolutely hate though, and I mean HATE, is the management of the product.  From being forced to depositing lindens into an “account” of some kind that I can never get back to a Hud that is a complete nightmare – I just can’t do it anymore!  For some this will be a great product in terms of one stop shopping for everything but this body just doesn’t work for me.  Both the Slink Body and the Venus Body offer me the flexibility I need to make dressing my dolly a much more enjoyable experience.

Welp, that’s all I got for now.  So until next time, take care my friends and have a great Second Life!

Sassenach Inspiration and a bit of Role Play Talk

Sassanach 1
You know, I really should actually write now and then on my blog – maybe actually review something perhaps?  I used to write quite a bit on my blog in the past:  musings about my Second Life, Role Play stories etc and so on. Lately though I am drawing a complete blank as to what to write about exactly.  It’s funny how in the past six years or so of blogging, I have gone from being a ranting fool to practically a mute!  I used to have the attitude that blogging should be more than just posting pictures and giving credits – it was about reviews, thoughts or emotions.  I think my lack of words has a lot to do with that fact that these days I do primarily just log in, take pictures, then log out and go do something else. Not a lot to talk about when you are relative hermit!  Perhaps I should start some plurk drama or something.

Even in the realm of role play I feeling sadly uninspired.  I finally took the plunge and created what I think is a great free woman character:  She is in a loveless companionship (they even live in separate houses), her days are filled with political plotting and scheming, having dramatic blow ups with her family etc and so on. You know, EPIC ROLEPLAY!  But sadly, I am getting bored, bored, bored. It is definitely not my fellow players, they are fabulous writers in fact but something about the “danger factor” is missing in my role play.  Combine this was my realization that Gorean role play may be unconsciously promoting all the things in life I find despicable (slavery, gender oppression, etc), I may have just simply grown out of Gor.  Who knows though, in a week I might feel completely different, LOL.

Sassanach 2

Anyway back to fashion blogging, today’s look was inspired by the female lead in the new Outlander series on STARZ.  Based on the book series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, the show focuses on Claire Beauchamp Randall, a English nurse living in Post WWII UK who travels to Scotland for her belated honeymoon. Eventually though, her life is turned upside when she transported to 1743 Scotland after exploring a set of Rune Stones outside Inverness.  “Sassenach” is what the highlanders call her while she struggles to make sense of what has happened and how she might return to her time, her husband and the life she lost.

Featured in these photos are several new releases that scream “Sassenach” to me, including the sublime new Cinnia skin from DeeTalez, the Noodles locket for The Secret Affair, Valentina E’s latest released for Fameshed and Alexand from Lelutka. Speaking of Deetalez, I was resistant at first to buy from this store, largely due to a significant difference in darkness between the Nordic Tone and the Mixed Type tone; but the faces of her skins were just too beautiful to resist!  I am still crossing my fingers though that she comes out with a bit more rosier pale tone that I prefer on my “white girl” avatar.

Welp, that’s all I got for now.  So until next time, take care my friends and have a great Second Life
