Hello, loverlies. Over the weekend, I spent hours doing the Summer Choice 2009 Creators’ Stamp Rally. This was my first time doing it, and I’m so glad I did. It was really fun. I had never done it before because I didn’t quite understand it, but it’s actually quite simple. I’ll tell you how to do it in my next post, coz this one is going to be kinda long. Anyway, I thought I’d show you some of the things I bought in my quest for the Stamps, while also showing my favorite new skins – Zanzo’s Reborn gothic skin line.
So, first, let’s talk about the skin. Yesterday, I showed you the Rose makeup; today, I’m wearing the makeup called “Edna” – lol. I admit that I mostly buy skins for the face/makeup. If I don’t have to edit my avatar’s face to make the skin look good, I’m very happy. The Reborn skins make me look like me, so it was a no brainer to nab them. The price tag of L$600/makeup wasn’t bad either. That is definitely on the inexpensive side as skins go. So, obviously, I love the face/makeups on these skins. But, how do I feel about the body on the Reborn skins? Well, the chest, back, tush, and arms, I think are lovely. The abdomen I feel is a bit harshly shaded, and the knees (which I realize are hidden in these pics) are a bit “bony,” and not to my taste. Another oddity is the nails – the skin comes with black nails painted on (which I really don’t mind). If you’d rather wear a different color, you’ll have to wear your other nails on a glove layer. Overall, however, I’m very pleased with the Reborn skins. I have a difficult time finding a goth skin that I love, so the positives of these skins significantly outweigh the negatives.
Ok.. back to the outfit. The hair is a Stamp Rally purchase from ::69:: – the Happy hair. ::69:: was kind enough to set every item in the store as a Stamp Rally item. That means that if you purchase any of their gorgeous hairs, you’ll get a Stamp Card. Yay! But you’re wondering about the lingerie? Well, on the last stop of the Stamp Rally, I tp’d to Le Petit Prince and saw several things I liked. Unfortunately, not all of them were designated items for the Stamp Rally. (grrrr) After way too much thought, I settled on this lingerie called coquettishly “Pourquoi Pas” (“why not?” in French). I loved the colors and the little flower appliques. Mmmmm.
Anyway, the montage for your viewing pleasure…..
Finally, the flowers among which I am standing are another Creators’ Stamp Rally purchase – from iTutu – one of the lease expensive items you can purchase and still get a Stamp Card. Yay!
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!More Details: Lingerie: Le Petit Prince – Pourquoi Pas Hair – ::69:: – Happy – Pearlstrawberry Skin – Zanzo – Reborn – Edna Shoes: Saki Galiazzo Shoes (SKG Shoes) – Slingback Pumps V2- fuschia Earrings: EarthStones – Beaded Fringe Earrings – Carnelian/Citrine Necklace: EarthStones – Starburst Necklace – Carnelian/Gold Flowers (copiable – yay!) – iTutu
