Horrorfest started and I found quite a few things that I really liked. I am sorry there were no previews, but I forgot to apply as a blogger in time. Very witty of me. But there are lots of awesome things to be had, so take a look and grab some of these goodies. 🙂
Nina Helix, owner of Birdy and Alchemy, makes awesome stuff. It is known. Not only does she make fabulous houses (at We LOVE RP) and super cute little owlets (see my right shoulder!) but she is mostly known for her skins. The skin I am wearing is called Amber and I am wearing it in the bare version (with a make up layer) and red brows. Her skins are known for very delicate features, a very distinct glow and slightly stronger highlights. Apparently, it has come to the attention of other skindesigners that her way of highlighting is very popular, because I see more and more similarly highlighted skins popping up. 🙂 I am in love with the lips on this skin, they are really soft and natural looking. Kissable!
Also, big plus from my side for the THINNER brows. Most of her skins have thick, really thick, brows, which make them unuseable for me personally, no matter how much I love the rest of the skin (elves and facial hair…). I like the nose on this skin, unlike with other skins from Birdy, I didn’t have to adjust my nose for this one.
One thing that I told Nina and I know she will be working to irmpove this is a better blending of face and neck, but other than that, I find it very hard to find anything about her skins that I could criticize from an objective point of view. Even if her skins often do not fit my avatar I can fully appreciate her very well drawn and unique faces which enable her customers to spot her skins right away on any avatar. This skin is available at the Wizarding Faire until TOMORROW! 😀 So go grab it!!
The necklace is an item you can buy at the Horrorfest and is provided by Deccan Arida for The Forge. It is one of his ultra rare gacha items. LOOK at those texture and the crazy tiny details Deccan managed to combine there! I am always amazed how much he continues to improve and I am very glad that he, along with his friend Jalilah Jewell of GSpot, got invited to Horrorfest. :)They certainly both deserve it. The small details on this necklace combined with the truly prettytextures speak for themselves I believe. Look at all those tiny little metal-curls and swirls and how pretty the wings truly turned out. Often times gem-textures look really bland imho, but in this case I very much like it. Given the fact that his common items are just as carefully made and also pretty, I’d give this gacha try! Or some more than one. 😉
