Lara by Maitreya

Lara nude fin

Introducing Lara, Matireya‘s new mesh body. If you’ve read my last post you already know how happy I am with mine. It’s everything you would expect from Maitreya and more. Lara is rigged mesh so you can use your sliders to modify her to your liking, or wear the same shape you always do.

Lara comes with a very detailed alpha hud (seen below) which will give you many more options on things you can wear with your mesh body. It also has system and extra layers that allow you to texture the body with skins, tattoos and system clothes from your favorite designers, with the use of appliers.

The second tab on the alpha hud is pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones. Woo Hoo!!! I know not everyone wears GA but I’m seeing appliers quickly being made for Lara and in the meantime, their matching system is super easy to use; it’s the same one from the Maitreya Gold shoes. I love that it gives you empty slots to save your other skintones. Just click the slot while you’re wearing a tone that you use often and it’s there for you at the click of the button. The hands and feet are included so your entire body gets recolored by the click of a button. That saves so much time! Also on this tab of the hud you’ll be able to switch your foot shape from flat to medium to high in one click. The Maitreya mesh body is also compatible with the Slink hands and feet size XS.

I also love that you can change your nail lengths on this hud too. It makes it so much easier when everything is right there. You can see in the picture of the hud above that this is also where you’ll find 19 manicure and pedicure choices. A nice variety is offered, and I’ve already seen quite a few Maitreya Mani and Pedi Appliers for sale as well.

Included in the folder of the Maitreya Mesh Body you’ll find an exclusive lingerie set by Zaara applier. A very sexy black lace bra, panties, corset and stockings; all can be worn or just the parts that you’d like to wear (set not shown). You will also find a Maitreya mesh bra & panties set in 16 colors, that is customizable by HUD. (below) They have an amazing fit and the colors are rich and vibrant. There’s also an option to wear either just the bra or just the panties..or you can hide it all and make it visible when the time is right. ~raises my eyebrows up and down~

Lara FREE ling appliersThe free-ness continues with a new VIP gift..or rather giftS from Maitreya. Shown below, 3 pairs of Maitreya Gold Liaison pumps made especially to fit the mesh body!! Make sure to pick up all 3 unique colors!! This group gift will only be temporarily available and those 3 colors are group exclusives, meaning they will not return!

They also have available for a limited time, an exclusive selection of Zaara lingerie sets that they will only sell to Maitreya VIP members. You’ll see them next to Lara and the free gift heels. I chose the nude set and then I got the hell out of there! lol. Second Life can be one expensive hobby for a person with no self-control like myself.❤︎

vegas nights final

I haven’t been able to go in world much, if at all in the past week, but I’ve really been wanting to get this post out.
Uber‘s theme for October is 50 Shades of Grey and I think this post embodies that theme perfectly.

I loved this outfit already but when I added ryvolter’s Mink Princess Stole it made my “top ten favorite outfit’s in sl” list immediately. I’ve worn fur in sl, but  never before have I seen it look so realistic.  Available in a wide variety of colors, this stole will turn heads where ever you go. It comes in a regular size and a wider size for different poses. It moved very well with my ao and I wore the regular size for all of the pics in this post.

After demo’ing about a hundred corsets trying to find the look I wanted I finally smartened up and searched bustiers. I hit a goldmine when I found ~coepio~‘s Sexy Bustier. It comes with the attachable hud shown below and your choice of any of the colors, prints and fabrics. This item could be an important staple in your sl wardrobe.

faMESHed gift finalc

Hi friends 🙂 I’ve been dying to play sl! I haven’t logged in for a few days and I think I’m going through withdrawal, lol. I’ve been trying not to think of all the good deals I’ve missed out on. I did, however, manage to snag a couple of premium, top notch freebies before I left and yay!..they are still available!

Valentina E. is the sponsor for the ladies’ group gift of this faMESHed round. I didn’t realize how many of their outfits I had in my inventory. Their creations are absolutely amazing..I would put them in the highest category as far as how beautiful and well made their things are..I’m talking in the same category as Lelutka, Celoe, Maitreya..have a scroll through their blog and see if you agree, or better yet, go ahead and tp there and see firsthand! After you go to faMESHed and pick up the Valentina E. FREE gift that is.  Oh, and did I mention that the faMESHed group is actually FREE to join?? That’s refreshing to hear 🙂

billionaire watch and iphone fin

The above picture shows the Mandala Billionaire Watch set that I spoke of in my last post, here, in silver. The iPhone is by [ZULU] and I found it on the marketplace, here. This is the most realistic phone that I’ve seen in second life. I’m sure there are some just as nice, possibly even nicer, that I haven’t seen..but I love this phone. I can wear it with my a/o and the phone animations still work nicely. You can use the hud to text, talk on the phone, or take a selfie. Really cute animations too. It would be a good AFK animation..just click the button on the hud to text or talk and then go do your thang’.

The phone comes with a phone for your left hand, a left hand hud, a phone for your right hand, and a right hand hud. The background is customizable so you can put your own pic there if you like. You can also use the regular iPhone screenshot that comes with the phone. Directions for adding your own pic are in the package and it’s super simple. You just put your phone in edit mode (you can do this while it’s attached to you) and add the pic you want as your iPhone background into the phone’s “contents”. You may need to delete the previous texture to get your’s to show. If it’s the texture of the regular iPhone screenshot be sure and save it somewhere..your “textures” folder would probably be a good place :p

Essences Ginger Gacha Fin 1

I mentioned this skin, Alex in my last post. I got it at last month’s kustom9 in a Gacha machine. I knew from the picture that I would love it and I do. Even the red is growing on me. I finally found some more Alex skins, though, so I can have my normal coloring back now. I haven’t been able to find Alex in Essences, so I don’t know if it will end up in the main store, or if it will just be a special “event” and/or gift skin. I think it’s so pretty that they will have it in the store eventually… fingers crossed!

To get Alex with your choice of brow color (and all the other bells and whistles) now, you can find 3 beautiful versions at Uber. I’ll feature them in my next post, so stay tuned for that.

If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s a new monthly themed event owned by Truth Hawks and managed by Miss Kaelyn Alecto. This month’s theme has been Vacation and features creations from 35 of second life’s top designers. Strawberry Singh has a post, here, with a list of the designers and links to pictures of their Uber items.

gingersnap accessories final

I had fun with the accessories in this little “ensemble”. The beaded [glow studio] Mauri earrings and the New Biarritz Beaded Collar from MG look like a set together. You can wear this necklace in a variety of colors. Simply touch (click on) the necklace to bring up an appearance menu. You can find it at faMESHed this month, along with it’s actual matching earrings, and many other irresistable items.

The gladiator sandals are New from Tee*fy and if they look familiar, they were introduced in last month’s collabor88 Safari selection. I haven’t been yet for this month, but I just looked at one of my favorite blogs, Seraphim, and now I’m foaming at the mouth to go. It’s c88‘s 3rd birthday and there are a ton of designers participating..maybe all of them..and then some! My heart is literally pounding I’m so excited to go lol. I don’t think that’s normal is it?? Never mind.

If you’re not familiar with the second life blog Seraphim, you need to be! It is a constant on my bookmark bar. They always posts pictures of every item in more events and gifts than would seem humanly possible. It’s great for checking out event items without dealing with the lag, or during a time when you’re unable to log on to sl.

This post is far longer than I meant for it to be, but I can’t sign off without commenting on the amazing manicure and pedicure appliers for Slink hands and feet from beauty by alaskametro. A huge variety of rich beautiful colors..they make me think of OPI polishes. 10 Linden Each!!!! What?? I couldn’t believe it and I’m going to buy everything she makes before she realizes how much more people would pay for it! Just kidding..well..not really. I’m unable to find an in-world store so I’m assuming the only way to get it is to shop marketplace sl. If you’d like to try before you buy she’s offering the free applier below..a sample of her beautiful work and 7 free colors! Thank you very much Miss Alaska Metropolitan, creator of  alaskametro<3.

Speaking of more for your money, Everglow, one of my all-time favorite pose stores, has recently announced that they will be changing sims and renovating their store. It wasn’t clear to me whether or not they would be closing down temporarily, but what was crystal clear to me is that they are having a huge summer sale. Everything in the store is 50% off! This is the best time to stock up on some of the best poses in sl..❤

ZENITH @ FAIR

I’ve noticed that long, oversized sweaters seem to really be trending this fall. Hence, one of Zenith’s items in the FAIR event,  the Off Shoulder Long Sweater.

I was really pleased with how well these sweaters move with my, or rather Poppy’s movements. This is the type of item that would be nearly impossible to wear in the long ago, prim era 🙂 ..well except for taking pics or standing still.

It brings to mind a big prim sweater I bought a couple of years ago from one of sl’s top designers..it’s so beautiful but i was never able to wear it anywhere except for my pose stand. Once I stood and walked around it did all sorts of crazy things lol.

Of course there are endless ways you could wear this sweater..I think my favorite way though, would be all by itself, with Zenith’s second item at FAIR..Zenith’s Cute Socks.

You don’t have to decide which ones to buy because it’s only one pair of socks. They come with the hud pictured below. You can change the color of the socks, the ribbons, and the fuzzy balls. (heehee…i said fuzzy balls)

last day of coldLogic 50% off entire store sale!

This sale takes place in the coldLogic mainstore location only.                                ~Click here for taxi~

In typical Poppy-fashion, I’m posting this entry on the very last day of the sale. But I thought..maybe some people don’t know it’s the last day so this will be a good reminder for them. That sounds good, huh?

I’ve been trying to work on this post for a few days now. I wanted to do a shoot of me in several of my coldLogic outfits, but unfortunately this is going to end up being a quickie post because I’d hate for anyone to miss out on theses awesome deals. coldLogic has some of the best mesh clothing I’ve tried since my return, and according to my fashion groups many people share that opinion.

In the above photo is my very first coldLogic outfit. I could live in this little romper irl..and in sl too! They have a huge variety of clothing; cute, comfy, classy, sexy night on the town, casual. Yesterday they added 11 new pieces to their collection and these are included in the sale! (mainstore only) …and did I mention this is the LAST DAY OF THE SALE????

I also wanted to mention that coldLogic is promoting  a new and upcoming mesh menswear brand – FATEwear – by one of their creators, Damien Fate. You can find a free mesh outfit for your men at the Subscribo sign near the front of the coldLogic mainstore entrance.

FATEwear will be opening sometime next month on the newly opened region FATEisland which is connected to the north side of Zyrra. Feel free to poke around this picturesque mesh build in anticipation for the grand opening.
