I’m so very excited to see Laqroki back in the biz. I’ve worn Laqroki skins for the  majority of my sl. I’m quite taken with the new Glam Affair skin from my last post, but the temptation was too strong, I had to try one of the new Laqroki skins. Their new skin line is called The Fresh and Essential Skins and features Mix and Match; all facial features are on tattoo layers, which makes it possible to create your own unique look!  I haven’t had time to play around with it like I’d like to but I am very curious to mix and match and see what sorts of looks I can come up with. Here are some great examples of the different looks you can create  from the Laqroki Blog. Laqroki has also released body appliers for Slink Mesh Physique, and Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara. (They have appliers for the new Fresh and Essential Skins and the Glow skins from before as well…yay!!!)  The appliers are yours for FREE the first week after release <3
*(Regular prices will be set 9 Febuary, 1 AM SLT)

Giz Seorn of GizzA Creations’ new Collection, The Frida Inspiration Gown is a true masterpiece. Inspired by the works of  legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, this gown is rich in Mexican culture. Vibrant, eye-catching red and yellow hues throughout, and the skirt adorned with images of two of *Diego Rivera‘s most famous pieces of work, “Mercado de flores” and “The Flower Seller”.  A beautifully detailed rose headpiece and a hand-held lily flower (with and without pose options) complete the look. The lily flower is not shown in this post, but here are a couple of amazing pictures that I found on the blog Urban Legends by Natsumi Kangjon if you’d like to see it. :)

*Diego Rivera was a very prominent Mexican artist who was married to Frida Kahlo. If you’re not familiar with his work you should google him…it really is brilliant. Special thanks to Miss Xaqueline Seda for her knowledge on art history and Mexican culture. ❤︎

*Contrary to popular belief castanets are not used in the Flamenco…nor are they Mexican, but Spanish instruments. I really love them with this outfit though. I found these on the marketplace, created by Una Daxter. When the left one is attached the action begins lol. You can hear the click click sounds and your avi does a funny little Flamenco-like dance..GREAT for driving your friends insane! For the pics I copied the right one and just used two rights because she wouldn’t even stay still on the pose stand when I attached the left…she was clickety-clickin’ all over the place.

ellie fin 2

I’ve been hooked on the Glam Affair skin December II lately, but I’ve fallen in love with their newest skin, Ellie. You can find her at several events going on around the grid right now. Check out the Glam Affair blog, here for details. I’m wearing the Ellie featured at Kustom9 in this post. There you have a choice of 6 makeups and the skin-tone choices are Asia and Jamaica.

ellie fin3Ellie. New from Glam Affair.

ellie fin chest dehancer

Glam Affair has released new Maitreya Chest Enhancer/Dehancer Appliers. The shot above shoes the normal Glam Affair skin on the left and the dehancer on the right. It smooths out all the shadows, and if you prefer a smaller chest like I do you will absolutely love it. I didn’t show the one for Cleavage/Enhancement, but they have a picture on their blog that will give you a good idea, here. I didn’t have the dehancer on for the pics in this post (only the one showing the dehancer lol)..this dress called for a little bit of cleavage. Isn’t sl great?

One important thing I need to add. Maitreya has updated their Zest Pumps to be worn with their mesh body, Lara. If you’ve purchased any before now you’ll need to go to the redelivery terminal at the Maitreya main store and pick up your updated shoes!
