I know what my heart believes – News from Kik, Exxess and more!

Hi guys!

The Mystic Realms Faire is coming soon and we are in the middle of the preparations. It’s gonna be nice I think. πŸ™‚ You definitely need to check out the line up! πŸ˜€ A TOn of truly amazing designers are participating in this event, so don’t miss out!

But lets see what I am wearing! Today I tried to go for a more down to earth look, something I can actually see being worn instead of some extravagant stuff. πŸ™‚

The hair!

The hair on the picture below is a relatively new (or just a new?) release by Kik (as001 Littlething) and I think it is a really, really cute style. You can choose from three different blonde packages of which I chose the brightest one: White Blondes. I really enjoy the warmer tone of this blonde, though I wish the dark part on top of the head should have been a bit brighter to make it look more natural. I really like her textures a lot and the two strands at the front a very pretty. However, I did notice that the mesh seems oddly frazzled towards the end of each strand. I had my LOD, antialiasing etc. all the way up, so I asked around and apparently it is simply how the mesh is done. I think it takes away a bit from the perfection of this style, because the ends look so jagged. I really hope Kik will make slimmer, smoother strands because her styles are really, really sweet. πŸ™‚

The other hair!

Exxess by Layja Vidor is a store that fell from my radar for a long, long time. I only recently stumbled upon it again and I must say, I am positively surprised and impressed. I tried several styles and noticed pretty, smooth looking meshes, a lot of VERY long styles and a lot of attention to detail. A lot of their hairs are pretty unique looking as well. One colour palette costs 269 Lindens and includes 10 tones, of which each tone comes in an ombre version as well. That is, in my book, a pretty good deal. The HUD is very easy to handle. I treally, really enjoy the textures as well. Unfortunately, whiile trying the blondes, I noticed a lot of them are a tad to grey-touched for my personal taste and also seem darker than the colour preview on the HUD suggest. Also, there don’t seem to be any boobie-versions included. But I still very much like these hairs a LOT and for all the updos and ponytails you don’t need the boobie-versiosn anyways. πŸ™‚
