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.

lara huds 2 nudes

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.

hands and feet

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!

maitreya group gift shoes

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.❤︎

FIN alaskametro 1

Alaskametro has added some awesome new items to her collection. She is revamping a lot of her creations from the “prim era” so that they can be worn as appliers on mesh bodies…yay! The metallic Giselle II bikini is one of her newest revamps.

Paired with wide legged Miami Linens from BOOM! and the FREE Group Gift hair from Tableau Vivant I thought it was a very glam, sexy and sophisticated look. It made me think of something you would see a star wearing in paparazzi photos.

The Tableau Vivant FREE Group Gift hair is what I like to call a “high-end gift”..and we all know that those are the extremely nice, well made gifts that we would actually buy at full price, or maybe even one that we would want to buy at full price but couldn’t afford, lol.  The gift includes different HUD’s to give you the choice of every color possible and it is just beautiful. Thank you so much Miss Marilyn Magic!

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

GREECE is the word

beautiful greek city3

August 8th was Collabor88‘s 3rd birthday, so this past month’s Odyssey-themed collection was one of the biggest and best in their history..and you still have 5 more days to shop! You really don’t want to miss August’s collection, and remember, some of the items are exclusive to the event so when it’s gone it’s gone. (dabs a tear from my eye thinking of Illmatic’s Frenchie hair from a C88 that I missed..i’ve searched high and low for it, even contacting the creator, but I never heard anything, *sniffs*) True, there are some items that are or will be available in their main stores when this collection is taken down IN 5 DAYS, but you won’t get it for the discounted price that Collabor88 offers. For example, Mandala’s Billionaire Watch set is there right now, all colors available, for 40% off of it’s original price. Jus’ sayin’. 😉

~taxicab to Collabor88~

Greece1
In keeping with the Odyssey theme I thought I’d check out a few Greek sims. I found a few that were very beautiful, and I enjoyed getting out of my photo orb and exploring some of the grid. The photos in this post were taken at Myrmidons Empire. You can see by the first picture why I chose it. It’s a great place to explore, I didn’t even get to see all of it, and the whole place is one big photo opp.  I took a record-breaking amount of pictures there, lol.

Greece final

I thought the [whatever] Gladiator Shoes (close-up of front and back pictured below) tied in quite nicely with the whole Greek/Odyssey theme. These are Free to members of the [whatever] group. There is a fee to join, but they have very high quality gifts. When you receive your membership don’t forget to pick up all of their past gifts on a wall in the front of the store.

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.

FREE Essences Gift!

Essences Free Gift fin 1

A good friend of mine mentioned Essences some time back and I had been wanting to go and check it out, but just hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Then last month’s kustom9 had a Gacha machine from Essences and I fell in love with the picture of the “rare”..Alex was the name of the skin. On my first try I saw that I had gotten an Alex rare..and that’s all I recall seeing so I was so excited and felt so lucky. By the time I got around to putting it on I saw that it was the ginger, and Poppy is a brunette. She may not be one day, but for now I like her as a brunette. The ginger is quite beautiful though, and I am wearing it in world now, hoping to blog it. I’m still on my search for Alex brunette though..

Which was what led me to Essences where I picked up a demo of every one of their skins, I do believe, and found their beautiful free gift, Jamie, which I am wearing in this post. I have on the teeth tattoo that comes with the gift but it’s optional..

~Click here to tp to Essences Skins~

So, after several posts of wearing my Slink physique mesh body I took it off to try on the new Essences gift skin and all of my demos. It is a beautiful body and for taking pictures it makes such a difference if you want a more life-like look..but I have to say taking it off was the equivalent of walking in the house and taking off your bra after a long day at the office. I guess because it’s still so new to me and I just can’t seem to quiet that little voice inside me reminding me of all of the thousands of things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I guess at this point I’ll wear it sometimes, but maybe not all the time. Maybe it will be a different story when they come out with mesh bodies with little boobies…they aren’t so bad, but the shadows are still there. Jus’ sayin’.. :p
