Yeah, I’ve got a backlog so damned long that it’s frustrating the hell out of me. I’m just gonna have to realize that I won’t be able to “catch up.” But I’ll do my best. I also don’t have full-time access to my desktop coz my kids are home for summer vacation and bored to tears without their school laptops. Sigh. I’ve carved out an evening-time niche for myself though. 😀
Anyway, I’m so happy about two designers that released new skins that I definitely want to show you those. First up, Violent Seduction’s new skins – Still Doll. I wore one of the makeups in my last post, but today I’ll show you the whole kit and kaboodle. (Who says that anymore? Sheesh.)
Isn’t it yummy?! The skins come in only this tone as far as I know, with and without subtle freckles. This particular makeup is called Pin Up and is one of the more “normal” makeups. There are also some awesome gothy makeups, which is really what I love about these skins. And by the way, SL was being a bitch when I was shooting these pics. I couldn’t get the entire picture area to rez *at the same time* so you may see some fuzziness that in no way is a flaw in the skins, k? Before I show you the prettiful skins, though, let me show you the rest of this cute grungy dress from Rotten Defiance. I picked this up at a weekend sale recently (when? don’t remember – a week or 2 ago?)
I had to have this dress coz of the bustle on the back. I’m a sucker for a nice bustle. It comes in lots of other grungy colors, but this one is the Moonlight shade. It also comes with the nice feathery headband. Yay! Lagniappe! Those beautiful white gothy boots are from Drakke, which I nabbed at the Shoe Fair. That’s ending very soon (if it hasn’t already ended), so I’ll give you the LM directly to Drakke. They’ve recently moved to a bigger place, too. Let me show you a closeup of those boots before I show you the skins coz they have some interesting details.
Do you see those little caged locks on the soles next to the heels? They spin! Very cool. 😀 And these boots are *white*as you can see – not off-white or grey posing as white. I can’t wait to wear them with some Blue Blood Whitegoth dresses.
Okay, finally, Violent Seduction’s Still Doll skins…
Hindsight always being 20/20, I realize that I shouldn’t have used a pose where my arm was up, bending over my head like that. The arm looks weird; I hope it doesn’t distract you from the loveliness of Iki’s skins. Aren’t they amazingly gothy? Ok, here are the names of the skins from top to bottom, left to right: Base with freckles; Base without freckles; Blue Moon with freckles; Candy; Fallout; Healer; Pinup; Red Eyes; Tears with freckles. Not shown are the no freckles options for Blue Moon and Tears. Some of the makeups (Candy, Healer, Pin Up, and Red Eyes) don’t come with a freckles option. Now I see what Iki has been up to all these months while she was away at graphic design school. 😀 Oh, the hair I’m wearing in the skins composite is the new free color demo from Exile – you get a fatpack including all the colors (new and old) in this cute ponytail with side-swept bangs hairdo. I’m wearing another new Exile hairstyle in the other photos. Exile released like four new styles recently and I went nuts as usual and bought half of them. Check the details below for more info on everything worn here.
Ok, that’s it for today/night. Until next time….
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
