Baby Face

Good morning!

I need to go to work and it’s Saturday and it’s raining. That is the bad news. The good news is Genus Project will be releasing a new bento head at the mainstore soon.

It is called Baby Face and it’s super cute. The head comes with its own default eyebrows, shape and skin. Also, you will be happy to know that Baby Face along with the previous head, Genus, have now been updated to versions 1.3.

The update includes basic animations and a fix for the neck line among other things. So now you can be grumpy, happy, funny, weird, aloof or whatever you wish to be wearing a Genus head!

The store is currently closed but will open probably after Sunday, so make sure you follow Anna‘s Flickr for any updates.

A crisp in the fall

[…]Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall[…]

Good morning!

It’s been a while since I last used a quote as a title, right? And I think this will be the case again as I’m still (and will always be) struggling with naming my posts. Unless there’s a super obvious or clear meaning in the picture! I’m embracing the Fall today with this image, since the weather in Athens has finally changed.

The head I’m wearing is the latest gacha release from Black Bantam and currently at the Arcade. It’s an editorial head, which means it won’t work as any other regular mesh head. It was designed to take pictures with it.

Wearing it and adjusting it to your body/shape can be a bit messy but Black Bantam has included a notecard with instructions (screenshots etc) on how to do that. And she’s super friendly and willing to help you any further with it.

That’s all for now folks, I’ll see you next time!

The rose-garden world of perfection

“Such beauty, posed upon its stem,
has far more reason that the roses:
It’s we who give a sense to them”

Hello world! The sun has finally come out of the cloudy skies. It has been raining endlessly the last few days and I do like the rain but I’m also too addicted to the sun. If you’ve been to Greece, you know what I’m talking about. I could also be considered spoiled. The sun is mine and I don’t want to share it. Does that make sense? No? Well good, that means I’m still weird and I’m glad.

Today’s post features the new release of Genesis Lab at the current round of Kustom9. It’s a double release. First you get a new skin/shape for the first Genesis bento head, Eva. Her name is Tiffany and she’s pretty. She’s part of a gacha set which includes a bunch of skin tones and make up appliers, so here‘s the gacha key to have a better look at it. Then you can also get a bento pose, to help you showcase it beautifully. Inspired by the recent Valentine’s day, it’s roses in many colors. These are a regular release and will work with any bento hands/bodies/hands in case you’re feeling like purchasing them but you thought you might need to wear a Genesis head.

Last but not least, the hair is this month’s VIP Group Gift by Truth. If you’re still not a member of the group, I don’t know why, but I hightly encourage you to join. The members are every month generously offered a brand new hairstyle. It’s definitely worth the joining fee.

That’s all for now folks, I’ll see you all next time!

When you stop looking for flaws

“Everything is so beautiful when you stop looking for flaws”

Good morning world and happy humpday! No news is good news they say and I’ll go with that for now. I do have some news for all the mesh/bento head lovers out there though.

Genesis Lab has a holiday sale until the 25th of December and offers all bento heads and all 3.0 Skins at 50% off the regular price. Gachas are on sale too (75L$ per pull instead of 100L$).  And last but not least, they released two new bento heads, Jade for the ladies and Jaden for the gents, that are currently at 30% off the regular price.

So if you’ve always wanted a bento head and you still haven’t meshed yourself up (see what I did there?), now’s your chance!

Won’t be forgotten

…my stars aligned, my amulets, my charms, I set all my false alarms, so I’ll be someone who won’t be forgotten…

Hello world! Genesis Lab created this epic gacha collection for the Epiphany, called the Call of Spirits (gacha key) and the minute I saw it, I contacted Alexa, as I knew she would share my enthusiasm.

She’s a far better fantasy blogger than I am and I asked her to collaborate with me immediately. And we did. But have you met me? I change my mind constantly and I never, ever, like my pictures.

There are always hundreds of pictures taken, incomplete edits, saved drafts, only to just upset me and end up deleting everything. We worked on the picture, did a scene, poses, everything looked great. But, as usual, I didn’t like any of the pictures I took. And I saw her version you guys, it’s amazing! Let’s hope she posts hers soon. Meanwhile, and since Blogotex pressures for a post delivery (ugh!) I had to make something else with it, so there you go.

Good morning folks! I woke up late today even though I have to go to work. But it’s Saturday so I will be excused for being late. Annie from ItGirls released two new skin appliers for Catwa heads recently, Brigit and Joan and they both look gorgeous. Yes, I know, you see a resemblance there but trust me, after you demo them, you’ll see the differences. Annie also made a smiley blush and offers it as a gift at her mainstore. No group join is required…you just grab it like that.

So, I wanted to make a portrait today, showcasing one of the skins, in a different way with different hair and pose etc., and I started to work on one but then I took this picture as a test and I kind of liked it. Hope you do too!

Oh shoot, it’s the weekend and I wasn’t supposed to ramble. Well, that happens when you let me sleep for more than 6 hours!

The Forbidden Apple

You’ve all heard the theory, “We always want what we can’t have”, right? I believe on some level, it is absolutely accurate. I remember when I was a kid, I would always do the things I was told not to, only because someone would forbid them. My friends don’t call me a spoiled brat for no reason. Hehe. But thinking about it, depending on how ambitious one is, don’t you feel slightly challenged when someone tells you, in a condescending way, umm, no I don’t think you can do this. Or, you’re not allowed to go in there, you won’t make it. I know that personally, as soon as you tell me I can’t do something, I want to immediately try it. But I think we’ve established by now that I’m a very very intricate person. Haha.

When I got my hands on The Annex’ new release for the We Love Roleplay event, Red Riding Hood came in my mind. But I was feeling creative and thought, what if Red Riding Hood, met Snow White and they were both in their adult versions. The beautiful dress’ generous cleavage leaves no other option. And what if instead of the Big Bad Wolf, the Riding Hood is the villain and instead of eating the poisonous apple offers it herself.

Anyways, that’s all about my wicked brain and imagination, I’ve given up trying to rationalize what’s going on in it, long long time ago. I just call it Art. So convenient. But hey, TGIF and the weekend is only a few hours away, so make sure you have a great one!

Big, tight hugs for you all!

PS: Many many thanks to all of you that contacted me, asking if I’m ok, after my previous post. First of all I’m so glad you actually read my posts and second of all I’m so touched. I am ok, one family member is not but will be. Hopefully, all will be well and back to normal soon.

Keily

It is raining in Athens today. I’m feeling blue but loving it in at the same time. We only get rain for 2-3 months every year so when it finally does, it’s magical! I’m sure if a British person read this now, would probably slap me, I know Jules will sigh as soon as she reads it, hehe, but it is true. I personally enjoy it when it rains, even though Athens is not built or prepared for heavy rain or storms. Matter of time before the streets flood, get slippery, traffic jam is created in seconds, everyone is late for work and chaos takes over the city again. Speaking about chaos,  Greek health system is no better.

I’ve not been very active lately due to a personal family health issue that made it necessary for me to be in the hospital for a couple of days. Everything was supposed to be over by now and back to normal but sadly it is not. No need to bother you will all these, everything will be fine eventually, I only felt I needed to share with you all that I miss blogging and photography so much and I’m trying hard to find the time, but lately there is none. But enough with the drama. Few words about today’s post are also needed.

I’m incredibly amazed by the frequency mesh head creators, design and release their new heads. I know nothing about designing on SL and I don’t know if it’s easier to create a mesh head than a mesh dress for example, but I would assume, it is not.

I think it’s safe to say Catwa and Genesis Labs have been the most productive ones. Both stores release up to 3-4 new heads every month which is something I find very impressive and incredible. I appreciate how committed some people are to their work and how seriously they take it.

Genesis Lab’s most recent release is Keily, mesh head version 2.0 which means all current Genesis appliers work on her. There is a big resemblance to the notorious Kylie Jenner and one can easily see the anagram there. Just rearrange the letters and instead of Keily you get Kylie. Hehe. She’s now available at the new round of Uber, so I highly recommend trying a demo and see what you think of her yourselves.

Yesterday a new pic on Flickr was released, titled K&K which I’m guessing is the Jenner sisters (Kendall and Kylie). Probably GL newest release for the Book of Daniel fundraising event that is due to open in 3 days. Also, Genesis Lab. have blogger application open, so good luck to everyone that will apply.

Have a good day!
