With a little bit of savage

Hello hello! I finally got the time to work on a blog post, a portrait in fact, since they’re faster to make. See, I didn’t say easier, I only said faster. Credits alone, it takes less time to work on a portrait than a whole scene.

Anyways, in case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I’ll tell you…! I’ve been working on a project for the Holiday issue of Gallant magazine! I can’ share more details but I can only tell you that this issue especially, will be amazing. And I’m not saying that about my pictures of course. I mean overall. The team is amazing and the work everyone has put into it, very inspiring. Be patient and stay tuned, I will let you know more and blog about it, once it’s released!

So, now that, that project is done for me, it’s about time I went back to my posts. I figured I’d start with the newest skin applier ItGirls released for Catwa heads. Do you see some Jennifer Garner to it? Because I do! It’s a mainstore release where you can also grab the new eyeshadows that have been recently released as well. All information and landmarks are listed below so have fun!

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!

Good morning world. It’s finally Friday and I couldn’t be more happy about this week ending. Here’s to the new days coming ahead of us. I’m not actually drinking anything but let’s pretend that I do. Unless you can make a toast using coffee.

New ItGirls applier has been released at Uber a few days ago, made for the fiore bento head. Give her a try, she’s gorgeous.

Deli

Good morning world! And happy Monday! Right, sorry, there is no such thing, I don’t know what I was thinking. I had a really good weekend which is mainly the reason why Mondays always seem worse to me. But this is not the right attitude to start a new day or week so let’s move on.

Have you managed to keep up with all the new Genesis Lab releases? They released a new head, Anis, at the Epiphany, gacha rare one, (which I blogged here) but also a new skin applier and shape, Deli, modeled on Anis at Shiny Shabby (which I’m showing you today). Then a few days later, some lipstick appliers at Uber and right when you thought that was all, they are going to release a new head at MBA Fair tomorrow, a regular release this time (I mean, non gacha). So, since I’m only showing you Anis on Deli today, have a look at the new head Stephanie, here. You have to stay tuned and be patient to see the rest.

Good morning! Going to be a quickie post as…well..all I have is a portrait for you today. Annie released a new skin earlier this week and she’s super pretty. She was created on Catwa’s Catya bento head (a shape is included) but will work on your other Catwa heads as well. I tried the skin on Lona and it looked gorgeous! She’s waiting for you to try her out at the mainstore or the marketplace. Scroll down for landmarks and enjoy!

Eyes adrift

Good morning everyone! It’s going to be a quiet post today as I don’t have much to share with you, other than the usual grumpy comments about my work. But you’ve all heard them before so let’s move on to the stuff.

Today’s post features new Genesis Lab releases at Uber event. If you have been using the new 3.0 skin appliers, you’ve probably noticed on the hud, top right, a clear option. That will remove the eyebrows the skin comes with. Genesis Lab. bento heads are Omega compatible (only for tattoo and make up so far – read here for more info) so now you get more options when it comes to applying layers on them. Genesis released 3 types of eyebrows for you to choose from and some eyelashes and eyes as well. There is a demo available at the event, so make sure you check them out!

I’m wearing Sofie bento head in this picture, which is their newest release, a gacha rare, from the Epiphany and she’s not omega compatible (at least not yet) but all the previous ones are (Eva, Lena and Jane). Also, if you have Sofie and you want to trade it for a copy version, this is what you have to do:

1. Write a notecard to GenesisLab asking to exchange your Sofie head and include your SL name (your sign-in name).

2. Make sure you have the entire Sofie Head package into a folder or in the original box and ready to go. When Genesis Lab. contact you, they will check your package and get you your very own copy version of the head!

Good morning world. It’s going to be a quiet post today, since I’m completely blank this morning. I have had coffee but apparently, it hasn’t kicked in yet. I only want to make a quick mention to this bento head by Genesis Lab. Her name is Sofie, she’s pretty and new and a rare gacha item at the new round of The Epiphany. The skin applier is made for her (but will work on other Genesis Lab. heads as well) and it’s also gacha at the new round of Kustom9. The skin itself is called Paola and it’s a rare but there is a bunch of common ones you could get, that are specific skin tones and with make-up on. You can have a look at the gacha key here. And good luck!

Jorja

Good morning world! Back to work since yesterday and back to the usual routine. Which means, no time for a proper scene making or a proper blog post. I left work around 11pm last night and I kind of brought work home as well, since I’m constantly thinking about all the things I have to do today. Meanwhile, though, itGirls released a new skin applier for Catwa bento heads, Jorja, so I figured I’d play with it. One of the things I love about Annie’s skins, is how she makes my avatar look like a super model. I will forever thank her for that! Hehe. It’s available in the mainstore and marketplace and in all five skin tones. Shape is included as always. Try a demo and see for yourselves.

Good morning world! It’s Monday but feels like Tuesday. Only because I stop work on Thursday due to Easter holidays and I could not be more happy. I think I’m going to spend whole Friday sleeping. And it would still not be enough. Mood is great, let’s take advantage of that!

Today I want to ramble a little and write a few things about the Blogger and Vlogger Network. It had come to my attention by Kess, who is one of the people responsible for it. I’ve been following Kess’ work for a while now and I’m enjoying every single one of her posts. She always has a few things to write about her day or her life in general, which I adore, as it makes me relate to her and makes this whole thing, more personal. If you haven’t seen her post regarding the BNVN already, I’m quoting her vision about this:

“I mentioned briefly yesterday the new Blogger & Vlogger Network that I have been working on for a while now with my wonderful colleagues from Spotlight Magazine, Trouble Dethly and Delicate Flower. BVN is a new support, education and networking resource for bloggers, vloggers and photographers in Second Life with a website packed full of useful tutorials and articles and a programme of live events including talks and panel discussions for designers and bloggers. Check out the website and suggest anything you would like to see and join the group in world to keep up to the date with the schedule of events and network with other like-minded bloggers and vloggers. I personally am very interested in learning more about vlogging so I am very much looking forward to Cassie Middles talk on transitioning to vlogging in a couple of weeks time.”

I think you’ve probably seen a bunch of the Network’s posts on social media already, regarding discussions, blogger and vlogger opportunities, picturesque sims and basically anything blogger and vlogger related. There is an inworld group you join for free and you can then be up to date with everything or simply ask for assistance or advice on the matter.

Last Saturday they had invited 3 well established SL brand owners to talk about their perspective when it comes to blogging, to give and share some tips and ideas on how to represent a brand better and what they think bloggers should or should not do. I was out Saturday night and couldn’t attend, but the whole discussion was being streamed live and recorded on YouTube. I watched it last night and I was excited. There were a lot of interesting Q&As. On Tuesday, Strawberry Singh will be on the panel talking about social media and the use of them. Can’t wait.

A mention to this beautiful head is also important! Genesis Lab. participates in the new round of The Seasons Story which opens today. The new release is a skin applier, created and worn on Jane bento head. There is a shape included as always but, like all bento heads, you can also modify it to your liking. She comes in all available skin tones and she has a very youngish doll face that I love. Genesis Lab. skins are also pretty affordable compared to most skin stores on the grid. Price is usually 500L$ and the body appliers (all tones included on the hud) are 200L$ and sold separately for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza (Vista bento hands too).

That’s all for now peeps! Have a lovely day and be kind to one another. See you all soon.

Had a super long day at work so it’s impossible to ramble right now.

Genesis Lab bento head Jane (yes, the one with the cute nose) on Adela skin from Uber plus some eyes and lashes appliers from Uber. Hair is by Truth from same event. Both events end soon so don’t take your time!
