I know, I know. I have been slow lately. Several reasons there, and those aren’t excuses: I haven’t felt terribly inspired lately, since a few of my favourite designers have been very inactive the past month. Also, I am currently studying a lot since on march 4th I’ll have the second part of my master’s degree and hopefully become a full teacher finally, after 1,5 years of an extremely stressfull internship. So bear with me please, I really do feel stupid that I feel so lazy lately.
SO, I am glad Curio is finally back, even if I daresay that the compromise they amde stinks. Pity, but at least they are back. So right now I am waiting for new skins from Curio and The Body Co.
Talk about the Body Co: I abandoned my Orchid skin. Why? For several reasons:
1. For once, Body Co stated they will not create Tango appliers for their skins. Their decision, but a big let down for me.
2. I got tired of their prices. I am sorry, but 500 Lindens for a watermarked (!) Make UP, that you can only use with that ONE specific skin and not even any of their other skins, is just ridiculous. Doesn’t matter how many layers it comes with, since I don’t want a make up in a billion of skintones but rather one I can use for mixing and matching.
3. During their Sale, the Orchid skin was 750L while all others were 500L, due to the package being slightly different (three types of brows). The other skins come with one type of brow, which imho, isn’t exactly a nice deal for a single skin. Time moves on, skins nowadays come with several brow layers, hairbaes, freckles, sometimes different make up layers or even nose-addons and so many other things. I think they do not offer a whole lot for the money you pay, at least not outside of the Sale.
I still love their skins, but that still put me off.
So now, I wear a new combination of skin + skinlayers. I really do like it a lot. Thoughts on it? And…there are even Tango-appliers for this one.
As for the new outfit: I tried to put together a layered outfit with pretty much mesh-only items.
