Que Linda!

Okay so I know what has been on my mind this week, THE VANITY UNIVERSE SKIN FAIR. I feel as though it has been etched into my eyelids, and I don’t think that I am the only one. In all actuality I think I am somewhat immune to fairs at this point I accept a few facts….

1) Tp’ing into the sim is not an option…due to the fact that I haven’t done anything to merit being invited in before the grand opening…and that all the skin fair zombie’s former gorgeous shopaholic’s have been Released, and are trying to find any tp crack that could occur and take it.
2. I am lazy.
3. I do not want to turn into a shopaholic zombie.
———————————————————————-
Way’s not to fall to the clutches of any Second Life Fair
1) Do NOT talk to those who have gone to the Fair especially the pre-opening visitors, they are on some Euphoric High, about the loveliness of Fairs. Fairs are lovely….after seven days or so.

2) Do NOT talk to those who tried to get in within the first Four days…they have become Fair Zombies, even if they still look like you and I. They rant, are illogical, and are extremely tired from all that lag they have been eating. Lag has the same sleep inducing chemical as Turkey; if you didn’t already know.
3) Do NOT look at Blogs that feature skin fair reviews, unless you know thou shall not be tempted.

4) Do join Skin addiction group in world created boy Voishie Paine, you can get demo’s of skin fair skins there and here the skin fair blues sung in the very entertaining group chatter.

4) Join the [PXL] Women’s in world VIP group and parade around, whilst straining your eyes camming in on your gorgeous new skin.
————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
I love the concept of fairs, designers you may not be familiar with yaddi yaddi, but they are hell for about a week…so avoid at all costs. I know you want to go, and lag is sounding almost appetizing. Don’t do it!

Fairs are wonderful, but frustrating, and I have a solution for you people out there, one word [PXL]. Mr. Hart Larsson is a smart boy. A week or two ago he released a new skin Linda G3, which I believe is the skin he is exhibiting at the VU skin fair; gave members of his VIP group the oppurtunity to purchase the skin before the fair. Linda G3 is still available for VIP members only currently. The skin display is in a beautiful white room, it is very soothing nothing like what I imagine the VU Skin Fair is like currently. Their is even one of those egg chairs, I love comfort! Mr. Larsson only made one concession, please do not tp non-VIP group members to the white-room-of-skin-happiness. The group membership is really a nominal fee considering you are really treated as a VIP and you receive a ten percent discount on all purchases. When you combine this discount and buy a custom fat pack (3 skins or more, which one should always do, but sometimes I forget and try to be all minimalistic), you save a whopping 30 percent. Challah! (okay I need to lay off the coffee).

Linda G3 is awfully pretty. I also think that Mr. Larsson has made some improvements to the body of the skin. You may be forced to prance around naked when you put her on. I love the fact that [PXL] offers skins that are unique, feminine, womanly, and fierce. I always feel like I am walking down the streets of NYC with my i-pod blaring at 7am on a Sunday morning, which is powerful.

-The details on Linda G3-
-6 skin tones for all you ladies and lady boys out there; ranging from pale to ebony. (pale, light, tan, natural, sunkissed, dark)
-15 skin bases offering a different shade of lipstick in each tone category
-15 cosmetic options- at 100L a pop.
-Each skin come’s with a light brow, medium brow, dark brow option. Cleavage option. Full body freckle tattoo, is also included in the package.

-Vendor Information-
-You can customize your own fatpack and receive 20 percent off.
-[PXL] Skins can also be gifted to a friend, maybe a friend who is  in the last stages of their skin fair zombie transformation.

-Reguarding my images-
I am still new to blogging, photography, everything! I also think I am a bit slow, it takes me forever to get anything accomplished in world. In real life I pride myself on my speediness. This isn’t really a skin review, and is more like a few pictures. Also about post processing there was some in this post, but the reasons why the skins look different is all due to different windlight settings. Strawberry Singh has opened my eyes to all the amazing things that windlight settings can do, recently she has added 10 more of her windlight settings to her website; so if you don’t want to play around on your own but want a place to start…download download. Thank you Strawberry. I  dodged and burned a bit but only the shadows that are present in SL. I also brightened and sharpened the eyes. I used green screen in these images which I don’t dabble in often, but loved the way bloggers like Estella Magic, and Nana Minuet use awesome background textures to make skin’s pop. Add to the list Liquifying shoulders. Point is that I did post process, but didn’t touch the skin…just the sl body wonkiness on the shoulders that make your av look like gumby, and used windlights that kinda got the effect I was after in each image.

Okay…still feelin’ a bit wonky…so very short post. I feel a rant coming on this week which will be full of my incessant ramblings for the 1 person who reads this (I think it is my mom).

I began this post due to a new release from Gawk!, I received a promotional copy…popped over to the store, and felt out the vibe…Then craziness ensued and I seem to have attacked a crow. The polo dresses/ shirts, are super cute and make me wish my high school had tennis courts, then I could have worn a similar ensemble as above. Sometimes I miss being super moody, cranky, and feeling terribly misunderstood, oh wait…I felt that way two days ago. Okay well here you go…Mom.

Suri is listening to the man…who reminds her so of high school: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34u_3Z9_LUw

Oh Brooke

I am a bit obsessed with Brooke Shields at the moment. Actually I am kinda obsessed with the late seventies/early eighties vibe…if you didn’t notice by my outfit. I am even making  a series of jeans poses ala Calvin Klein circa 1983 (I just picked a random date). I am a bit under the weather but I have been editing photos when my stomach subsides from the ocean in Titanic type motions. So here goes…pics and then slurls.
