Temptation



Happy Weekend! There are quite a few sales going on. I always get so distracted when I see a new notice come through. Today's notices were full of wonderful goodies at the CozyFest '22, hosted by the "Fifty Linden Fridays" Group. The group is free to join. The event runs until February 4th. Most items are on sale for 50L, and there are many gifts for you too! The temptation shop is always there, much like my Avatar's temptation of the sweets in today's photos. So instead of shopping all day, I decided I should share great items with you! I hope you find something you like!

✫ LIPSTICK: 
Those pouty pink lips were created using CAZIMI's  Lingonberry EvoX Lipgloss (shade 3, 60%). This set comes with 12 lipgloss colors in three opacities with a shine enhancer. This lipgloss set usually is available at 250L, but you can get it this weekend for the Saturday Sale for only 75L!. Major Deal! You do not want to miss out. CAZIMI is an excellent cosmetics designer. They feature tons of makeup (eyeshadow, blush, eyeliners, concealers, and more), mesh and applier nails, eyes, and lashes. You can't find a better designer for your cosmetic needs.
 
:[ Avatar Body ]:

✫ HEAD: I am wearing Lelutka's Avalon Mesh Head in this post. At the time of this posting, this head costs 3,990L. This head can support  Evolution (EVO) and Evolution X (EvoX) skins. The Avalon set comes with a Head, Teeth, Mesh Eyes, Elf Ears, and many bonus goodies like hairbases, face light, multiple teeth accessories like braces, ear piercings, and samples of cosmetic tattoos. It is Bakes on Mesh Ready (BOM) and comes with a default shape, Head and Ear skins in BOM layers, and skin, brow, and eye applier. Avatar complexity for the head alone is approximately +5738 (Head, Teeth, and Eyes). Lelutka is my go-to place for mesh heads. I love their style, quality, and ease of use for their huds. I own several of their heads. There are demos available for you to try before you buy.

✫ BODY: Today's body of choice is Maitreya's Lara Mesh Body. The Lara Mesh Body is Bakes on Mesh Ready (BOM). The body includes Bom add-on parts, a save stick to save your configurations, Bento hands, with hand poses and hand AO built into the HUD. The body has the 5 default foot shapes (Flat, Low, Mid, High, and Ballet). The HUD comes loaded with 22 Glam Affair skin tones, and BOM layers are provided. There are five nail shape options and 19 nail polish options. Alphas are controlled via HUD. There are over 200 possible selections. The body comes with mesh lingerie made by Erratic and BOM Layers by Zaara. At the time of posting, the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body costs 2,750L. 
This is the mesh body I wear the most; I really like the softer curves, and  I find most outfits are offered in their shape. If you prefer a petite or flat look, Maitreya has add-ons for the Lara Mesh Body for 499-599L each. The Lara Mesh Body, the Petite Add-on, and the Flat-Chest Add-on have demos available to try before you buy.

✫ HEAD and BODY SKIN:  The lovely and versatile Shilo Skin is by .:Soul:. Shilo is a Generation 3 [G3] skin. I am wearing the [H5] human skin tone. The skin is only for EvoX. The head skin and body skin are sold separately. Both head and body skins come in 16 human and fantasy skin tone variations. There are demos available to try before you buy. You can pick the Head Skin up for 899L for each skin tone or buy a fatpack of all 8 human or 8 fantasy skins for 5,999L each. The body skin is available for Belleza, Legacy, Omega, and Slink for 449L each skin tone or 2,999L for the fatpack. If you join the .:Soul:. VIP group (350L), you can get a 15% discount on every purchase, as well as free group gifts and teasers on new releases, updates, and store sales. 

✫ HAIR:   The adorable Yelena Hairstyle comes with the beret. It is Wasabi's Fifty Linden Fridays Sale item. That means it was only 50L! It is only available for a short time, so don't delay too long. You get three color packs (Colors, Root, Variety), and the hat is not detachable. Fifty Linden Fridays is a shopping event where every Friday, a group of designers will place an item at their main store marked down to 50L. You can join the Fifty Linden Friday inworld group to receive the list of stores each week

✫ EYES:  The Spooky Inviting Eyes are by CAZIMI (0L). They were the October 2021 VIP gift. You can still pick them up if you missed them if you are a group member. If not, it only costs 250L to join, and trust me, you want to. CAZIMI spoils their VIPs! The eye set comes in 8 colors in two sizes for BOM eyes layers. I am wearing Spooky 7,  Harvest Brown, in large. 

✫ EYEBROWS:  The Taylor Brows are by CAZIMI (250L). The Taylor brows include 8 Eyebrows, a brow filler in 2 opacities, 1 under brow highlighter in 4 opacities, a Stray hair layer. All in both EvoX and standard BOM layers.

✫ EARS: My ears are the default Avalon Head elf ears.

✫ SHAPE:  My shape is by SCIAVO. It is the Marina Shape for EvoX AvalonIt is one of many shapes they have on sale for 50L for the Secret Sale

✫ DRINK:  ChiMia has the perfect drink for the season, the Gingerbread Latte (L$60). The drink comes in a rezable and wearable version.  ChiMia is a fantastic home and garden shop; they offer furniture, home decor, and accessories/appliers for mesh avatars.  Their sim is beautifully decorated in an urban setting. Everyone is invited to explore and take photos. It looks amazing!. 

:[ Photo Tools & Location ]:

✫ The photo was taken at  Cravone City.

✫ For lighting, I use LUMIPro. LUMIPro is a HUD worn by the photographer that controls all aspects of lights worn by the model or self. The photographer can adjust position, color, radius, and falloff. You do not need rez right to use LUMIPro. The built-in posing system controls ten models independently without needing to rez for pose stands. You can pick up a copy for 6,6995L on the Marketplace.
