It's all in the Beat.



Today I have a fun little outfit that is from Cheeky Monkey Hunt's "Love is All You Need Hunt".  The Valentine-themed hunt runs until February 28th. 

✫ SHIRT: The adorable U&ME Tee is an exclusive "Love is All You Need Hunt" item by The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. The Bold Llama makes some of the most humorous and on spot t-shirts I have seen in Second Life. The "U & Me" t-shirt is fitted for standard Classic Sizes, Legacy, Belleza, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass/Physique, Tonic Curvy/Fine, and Ebody. The Tee costs 50L. 

✫ SKIRT: The "Love Skirt" is by Blink2Wink. It is the 1L hunt item for the "Love is All You Need Hunt". The Mesh skirt is fitted for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis, Legacy, and Kupra. HINT: We All Just Luuuuuurve Our Mesh Clothing!

✫ HEAD and BODY SKIN:  The lovely and versatile Lianna Skin is by .:Soul:. Lianna is a Generation 3 [G3] skin. I am wearing the [H5] human skin tone. The head skin is only for EvoX. The head skin and body skin are sold separately. Both head and body skins are available 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.

✫ EYES: I am wearing IKON's 'Babylon' Eyes in Harajuku (M). IKON's eyes are affordable at 150-170L each color, and if you join their in-world group, you can get a free set of eyes as a VIP gift. Ikon's eye sets come with IKON Mesh Eyes that are HUD controlled. You also get appliers for Lelutka, Omega, Genus, and Catwa, as well as BOM Layers in multiple eye sizes. I have worn IKON eyes for years. I highly recommend them because they are affordable and have a massive range of colors and styles to choose from.

✫ LIPSTICK:  Those pouty red lips were created using CAZIMI's Kiss Me EvoX Lipgloss - Naked. The Kiss Me EvoX Lipgloss are BoM and are available in three color sets (Candy, Heart, Naked). They are available at 250L a set or 675L for the fatpack, including all three sets (Candy, Heart, Naked). Total steal of a deal!!! I am wearing the shade 12 in 80% opacity from the Heart color set. Each color set comes with 12 lipgloss colors in three opacities with a shine enhancer. 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.

✫ EYELINER and EYESHADOW: CAZIMI  created the Yvette EvoX Eyeshadow ( 250L )These are perfect for the days that I want to emphasize my eyes. The set includes 9 base shadows in three opacities and four liners. I am wearing liner #3 in 100% opacity and the shadow base 8 in 60%. 

✫ HAIR:  The Audra Hairstyle is by Elkatria. The hair was done in collaboration with friday. The headphones are friday's original mesh creations. Audra includes 1 style option and a "mirrored" version as well. Additionally, the headphones can be turned off. Available in 3 head sizes and an unrigged version which can be resized in edit mode or with the HUD

✫ 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.

✫ SHAPE:  My shape is the Brittany Skin Shape by Velour. I received it with my purchase of the Brittany Head Skin for Lelutka Evo X (799l) (not worn in this shoot).

✫ LIGHTING: 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 6,699L on the Marketplace.
