Slinking in the dark, a bit slinky in my mood.

Good evening everyone, tonight I felt like mixing up my genres and came up with a pretty cute look, I think. That, of course, is a matter of taste. As I mentioned in an earlier post, My Slink Obsession (MSO) is right around the corner, opening up the 5th! If you have never heard of MSO, it is an event that occurs every three months that features Slink compatible designs, such as skins, nail polishes, clothing, poses and more! Everything and anything that revolves around Slink Avatar Enhancement products. All items at the event will be new and marked at least 50% off. So in honor of this event, I dusted off my Slink Avatar and gussied her up. 


My avatar consists of Slink's Physique Mesh Body (L$1,250), Visage Head, Becky (L$2,550), AvEnhance Elegance Hands (L$675) and AvEnhance Mid Feet (L$675).

The Visage Head Pack (L$2,550), comes with five standard body shapes, mesh head, five mesh alphas, three base skins, a neck patch and the Visage Utilities HUD, which offers twelve expressions along with various options to open/close eyes, hide different layers and clear current settings. 

The Physique Mesh Body (L$1,250) comes with a mesh body, five body alphas, six base skins, A dress, an underwear applier HUD, Physics layer, Physique Utilities HUD to control alpha cuts, tattoo layers, underwear layers and clothing layers. For those who have never tried an mesh body before please understand this is not a "shape" or "skin" its a mesh body layer that lays on top of your shape much like mesh clothing. You can use your own shape with it, you do not have to use the included shapes. Most mesh clothing fits but do not be shocked if you find some just wont work due to the alpha cuts or design style. It works with appliers created using Slink's applier so be sure any clothing you purchase has a logo saying it is compatible with slink first before you buy. You can find a list of compatible designers on the Slink Website.

The AvEnhance Elegance Hands (L$675) and AvEnhance Flat Feet (L$675) are very easy to wear. Each set comes with a HUD that makes it easy to match skin tones and a utility HUD for tattoos, stockings, and fingernails.



Now a mesh avatar would not be a pretty thing to look at with out a stylish skin to cover it. For this I selected the Ramona Skin in Tone 3 for Slink Visage V2.0 by YourSkin & YourShape. It and five other skin tones will be available for 590 lindens each at My Slink Obsession this month. Each tone comes with one base skin tone, five eye colors, two shapes and an easy to use HUD containing: 4 eyebrow colors, 2 freckles, 2 blush options, 7 make-ups, 16 lipsticks, and 8 hair base colors.  


The Juno Hair (L$249) by Tameless is a short layered hair style that hugs your face. The hair is mesh with some flexi so it gives the appearance of movement as you move. It is available in three color packs: Naturals with all 30 natural colors, Fades with 30 ombre and tipped colors, and Fantasy with 30 fantasy colors. It is also available in a petite version. Demos are available.

My necklace and bangles are beautiful creations from Maxi Gossamer. The Love Rocker (L$499) is one of my all time favorites from Maxi. It comes in twelve single strand necklaces and three cluster combinations, along with matching earrings. The set is available in either gold or silver.  The Damasc Bangles come with seven single  bangles plus four combo sets in sliver. These are the free group gift this month. The Gossamer Jewellery Group is free to join.


The Emilia Latex Dress for Slink Physique (L$149) and Emilia Plats for Slink Mid Feet (L$99) are by Stellar. There will be six color versions of both shoes and dresses available for purchase 50% off at My Slink Obsession this month starting the 5th. 

The Delicate Socks for Slink Physique (L$90) by Pervette also are going to be at My Slink Obsession starting on the 5th. They are available in four colors and come with tattoo layers for classic avatars. They come with cute little bows along the seam in the back. 

The Mechanical Wings - Industrial, Black by AITUI were from the Arcade in June. You can find copies of these at pretty reasonable prices at gacha yards. I recommend trying FabFree Headquarters Gacha Yardsale; nothing is over 50 lindens. I have found some great pieces during my visits there. 


My photos were taken at Insilico. It is an amazing cybernetics/ cyberpunk city perfect for your dystopian photos.



Poses for these photos were using poses from HelaMiyo's Little Black Dress Poses (L$300/set or L$50/pose), Favole Poses (L$1) and Face Palm Pose. Each set come with five static poses, mirrored, except the FacePalm Pose. It was a special gift sent out through the group. HelaMiyo has a large selection of affordable unique static poses for men and women. Definitely one of my favorite stores to find poses with character. While there check out the room with the dollarbie poses and lucky letter boards.

My Slink Obssession.... it's all Slink baby!

Good evening everyone! Waves madly,  I did it! I went and bought a mesh head! I decided to go with Slink Visage Becky (L$2550),  as I liked the eyes the best on her. Plus, I kind of wanted to stay with Slink for my mesh body parts, since they are already a known brand to me. There is nothing I hate more than spending money on a new brand and discovering it isn't up to the hype I hear. With Slink, I know what I am getting.  I really like the quality and any time I have had questions in the past I have gotten a friendly quick response. And I never felt stupid when it turned out just to be user error with the items. I really am dense when it comes to mesh body parts :P 

Second Life Fashion Review featuring designers and events

The Visage Head Pack comes with five standard body shapes, mesh head, five mesh alphas, three base skins, a neck patch and the Visage Utilities HUD, which offers twelve expressions along with various options to open/close eyes, hide different layers and clear current settings. 

Slink's Physique Mesh Body (L$1,250) comes with a mesh body, five body alphas, six base skins, A dress, an underwear applier HUD, Physics layer, Physique Utilities HUD to control alpha cuts, tattoo layers, underwear layers and clothing layers. For those who have never tried an mesh body before please understand this is not a "shape" or "skin" its a mesh body layer that lays on top of your shape much like mesh clothing. You can use your own shape with it, you do not have to use the included shapes. Most mesh clothing fits but do not be shocked if you find some just wont work due to the alpha cuts or design style. It works with appliers created using Slink's applier so be sure any clothing you purchase has a logo saying it is compatible with slink first before you buy. You can find a list of compatible designers on the Slink Website.

I am also wearing SLINK's AvEnhance Elegance Hands (L$675) and AvEnhance Flat Feet (L$675), both the hands and feet are easy to wear. Each set comes with a HUD that makes it easy to match skin tones and a utility HUD for tattoos, stockings, and fingernails.

So now my avatar is all Slink! Which is really good considering My Slink Obsession (MSO) is right around the corner, opening up the 5th running till the 22nd of the month! Been waiting for this to re-open. It is an event that runs every 3 months. MSO features Slink compatible items from skins, nail polishes, clothing, poses and more! Everything and anything that revolves around Slink Avatar Enhancement products. All items at the event will be new and marked at least 50% off.


Second Life Fashion Review featuring designers and events

I have a couple sneak peek items for MSO to share tonight too! The first is the Zoey Henna Tattoo for Slink Physique (L$99) by Deluxe Body Factory. It is a beautiful swirling tattoo that trails down your side and over your hip. It comes with a tattoo layer along with the Slink Applier so you can use it with classic avatars too!

 The other MSO item is the Alameska Sandals (L$150) by Signature Pose/shiZZo. They are Slink Flat feet add-ons. You will need to own the feet to wear these. They come with a black and white leather strap version. Very cute!!

The Estelle Skin was a release for the Dream Fair this month by Deluxe Body Factory. The fair ended on the 20th. I don't think there a version of this skin available at the main store, yet. I, of course, had to use the Visage and Physique appliers to wear this skin. It also comes in regular avatar base skins with a large variety of appliers for other mesh body/appendage makers.

The cute pixie Ursula Hairstyle (L$250) is from Elua, one of my favorite hair designers. They always have the cutest whimsical hairstyles. Very light and airy feeling.

My outfit is not really swimwear; it is actually Blueberry's Free Group Gift of Lingerie. Very adorable. The details of the set, as always for Blueberry, are fabulous. The set comes in five standard sizes, and versions for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Mesh Bodies. Blueberry recently opened a new shopping sim with five out awesome designers, each giving away free gifts. Be sure to stop in and check it out.

For my eyes, I am wearing Dulce Secrets' Secret Garden, Steel Blue Eyes (L$99). The Secret Garden Eye Collection is available in twenty-one colors and comes with mesh and system layer eyes. 

Second Life Fashion Review featuring designers and events

I had to slide in this last sneak peek item for MSO, the Bolero Bikini for Slink Physique (L$125) by Forze. It is an adorable lace bikini, perfect for summer hang outs on the beach. It comes with a color change HUD with twelve colors.

My necklace is the Celeste's Sparkly Heart by Maxi Gossamer (L$299). It comes in a long and short version, with a choice of eight gemstone colors and two metal tones.

Second Life Fashion Review featuring designers and events

My poses for these photos were using the Sorry What Pose Set (L$300/set or L$50/pose) by HelaMiyo and the Dutchie Life Buoy (L$498) by Dutchie Furniture.

HelaMiyo has a large variety of affordable and unique static poses for men and women. While there check out the room with the dollarbie poses and lucky letter boards. I recommend HelaMiyo  as a must have in any pose collection.

Dutchie's Life Buoys are available in two versions, animated and decorative. The animated life buoy can seat 2 avatars. The first can choose between 7 female and 7 male animations on the buoy. The second avatar can choose between 3 female and 3 male swimming animations. There is also 1 couple animation. The animated lifebuoy slowly drifts on the water. The movement can be turned off and on in the menu. The land impact is 2 prims. The decorative life buoys come in 3 versions, one attached to a pole, one on a hook for on walls and a third laying on the ground. They have the LI of 1 to 2 prims. The shadows can be unlinked.

Photos were taken on the beautiful Calypso Dream Sim.

I guess I can't complain it gave me a theme for tonight's post. Photos for today's post were taken at the Cafe on  Cupcake Sim. It is one of my favorite locations for photos in the rain.

Second Life Avatar Fashion Review for Urban Style featuring designers such as Tameless, .:Soul:. Black Tulip and Slink.

Second Life Avatar Fashion Review for Urban Style featuring designers such as Tameless, .:Soul:. Black Tulip and Slink.

Nita Bracken (owner of Tameless) has really been busy this month again. She has created several hot and sexy outfits. I really liked the how the Hands Off Outfit ($L249) fit my avatars shape. I think it was the high waisted skirt that really did it for me. The outfit is available in red/black (pictured) and a white/black version. This dress includes a top with appliers (slink physique, lolas, wowmeh, perfect body, brazilia doll, lena body, venus, belleza, maitreya, omega advanced), a rigged mesh skirt (5 sizes),  Bracelets (resize), and Ankle Boots. 

You will need to own SLINK's AvEnhance High Feet (L$675) in order to wear these boots. I am also wearing SLINK's AvEnhance Elegance Hands (L$675), both the hands and feet are easy to wear. Each set comes with a HUD that makes it easy to match skin tones and a utility HUD for tattoos, stockings, and fingernails.

Another sexy number by Tameless is the Spring Break Outfit (L$249). It is available for purchase with either a black top or a pink top. I had to go with pink, as it is Mel's favorite color on me. The things we will wear for those special people in out lives. I have to admit the top showed a whole lot more than I normally feel comfortable showing but I liked it a lot. It accented my avatar really well.

Included in the Spring Break Outfit is a mesh top (5 sizes), Mesh shoes for Slink High Feet, Jeans with appliers (slink physique, lena, brazilia doll, perfect body, phat, azz, wowmeh, 9s, banned, and ghetto booty), and bracelets (resize).

For my poses in these photos I used the Dress #3 Pose Set (L$75/set  or L$40/pose) by Black Tulip. This is a lovely five static pose set perfect for displaying your finery. It includes mirrored poses. It is on sale for the Super Sales Weekend Event. I am not sure how long it will stay this price so if your interested in it, go now. Black Tulip has a very large variety of poses for men and women, couples and singles, along with full perm mesh home designs..
