[Click image to see larger] 

Instead of blogging, I went shopping! So, I have a great mix of items from several events (Happy Event, Cheeky 69!, and The Darkness) to share with you. 

✫ OUTFIT: My outfit is a combination of two designers' outfits. Hot Stuff created the Lutesha Bodysuit that makes up the shirt/top. And Just BECAUSE created the Anisha Skirt.

The Lutesha Bodysuit by Hot Stuff is fitted for Maitreya, Erika, Kupra, Legacy, and reborn. It comes with a texture change hud with 10 color selections. It is available at the Happy Event for 99L.

The Anisha Skirt by Just BECAUSE is fitted for Maitreya Lara, Legacy, Perky, Reborn, and Kupra. The skirt comes with HUD-driven panties that can be color changed and toggled on and off. The Anisha Skirt is available in 18 different colors for 249L each or $1,299L a fatpack. Remember to try the demo first. 

✫ COLLAR:  I picked up the Halo Posture Collar by Razor for 349L. It is fitted for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body systems. I really love the look of this collar. It is elegantly laced up in the back, and it's perfect for slimming the neck and hiding necklines.

✫ WINGS: The Anguls Mortis Wings are by Gauze. I have had these since 2015. They are no longer available in-world that I can find.

✫ TATTOO: HSK Inks created the unisex Neon Empire upper chest tattoo. I loved the deep rich colors. The tattoo is bom layer and comes in 3 opacities. It is available at the Happy Event for 250L.

✫ POSE: Something New created the Dominate pose set. The set comes with five poses and a whip prop. It is available at Cheeky 69 and costs only 69L

✫ JEWELRY: Swallow created the SnowQueen Gems. I have had this piece for years. You can pick it up on the Marketplace for 1L.

✫ EAR TATTOOS: Ouroborus created the Dark Elfic Ears tattoos. The set comes with three colors for BoM EvoX. The set is available at The Darkness for 149L.

✫ EYELINER: Unholy&JTM created the Goth Cross Eyeliner. The set comes with seven vibrant colors for BoM EvoX. The set is available at The Darkness for 95L.

✫ 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 is available at 250L. 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.

✫ HEAD MODIFICATION:  The Leeku Shorties are by .:Soul:. The Leeku Shorties are bom enabled, materials enabled, unrigged, and feature 11 tintable tattoo textures. The Leeku Shorties can be matched to SOUL's [G3] skins. You can pick these pretties up in the store for 399L. 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. 

✫ CURVED HORNS:  The fabulous Crystal Ram Horns are by .:Soul:. The horns are materials enabled, unrigged, and feature 42 textures to customize the Crystals piercings. The base of the horns can be matched to all sixteen [G3] skins. The horn base is BOM compatible and can be hidden. You can pick these pretties up in the store for 399L. 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 'Hope' Eyes in Crimson (M). IKON's eyes are affordable at 150-170L each, and if you join their in-world group, you can get a free set of eyes. 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.

✫ HEAD  SKIN:  The lovely Hekate Skin is by  Unknown Hare. It is available in four pretty skin tones at the Happy Event for 450L each. Each skin tone comes with EvoX ear tattoos, head skin with and without brows, a brow shape, and freckles. The body skins are sold separately for 150L.

✫ SHAPE: The lovely Ume Shape is by  Unknown Hare at the Happy Event for 300L. 

✫ 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. 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.

✫ The photo was taken at  Tokyo Zero.

✫ 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.

Disclosure of Material Connections: I may have received one or more products as review copies. Regardless, I only recommend products I personally use and believe will benefit my readers. See my full disclosure policy here.
