So, Ost told me about this new sim, Crownlands, which is a new Game of Thrones sim. I sneaked in an took a couple of shots. The sim itself is rather nice and the rules seem laid back. I hope this place picks up with traffic and will have a good start.
Villena Swansen decided to make hair justa while ago. Her store, Liquence, provides high quality hair and has six styles out by now of which three are the newest releases. I am personally in love with this one. I like the textures a lot as well as the meshwork. I know a lot of people dislike the dry looking hairtextures that so many creators seem to prefer lately, but I thin Villena found just the right balance here. Her work is really well done. The hair can be tinted with a HUD. The onyl thing that really bothered me was the demo: I really would like to see my face when demo-ing a hair. Having some odd thing JUST in front of my face while trying on hair is not very helpful. However, offering all haircolors on the demo, too, is a big plus and the price of 230 Lindens for four tones of one color-scale is reasonable.
But, her styles are really creative and have a touch of newness to them. I especially like the long, soft and curly one and the one I am displaying here. It has a bit the look of a hair that is perfect for a Mord Sith, even though it is not a braid. The hairbase is tintable which makes it very easy to make it match just perfectly. Often enough, hairbases do not really seem to fit the tone of the hair and are no mod. So, check out this store and pick up her hair, it is worth it!
Lashes drive me nuts. I used to really like Maitreya’s VIP gift mesh lashes until I figured that no matter just how high I pulled up all my graphic sliders, they never showed quite right on the pics. Grrrr! So I went on a shpping spree and bugged poor Gogo for some help and she gave me some great hint: Snow Rabbit by Shirousagi Noel. Actually, these are lashes + teeth. The meshes are mesh, but a texture on a meshprim, not tiny little lashes that will derez. So, happy me dished out the 500 Lindens for this. 500 Lindens for lashes? YES! They come with a HUD that is CRAZY complicated. You surely remember my whining about HUDs and I really started sweating when I attached it already.
But, after about two hours of work, I am more happy than ever before with these. SO many optiosn. You can adjust the length of the lashes, color, the general size and how they sit on each eye. And the best thing is? You can adjust EACH part (right/left eye, upper/lower part) separately, which allows you to find a perfect fit. There is even a way to adjust the lashes to a smile that comes with the HUD and can be turned off. The adjustment for the teeth is equally complicated and perfect at once. I am very, very happy with these lashes, they beat everything else so far. Absolutely love Gogo for telling me about these.
