All ends are beginnings – News from Truth, Little Bones, Quality Designs and more!

Hi peeps!

I promised I’d blog earlier this time and here I am. ๐Ÿ˜› I wanted to put together something really autumn-y for this one. I hope you like it! I really LOVE this new hair by Truth, I think it is one of the best styles in some time and it comes in two variations: The one shown below and one that has two cute little buns on the right side (viewer’s perspective). Love iiiit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t forget to check out the other two releases too!

Also, if any designer reads this, here is a role-player’s plea: Please make MORE rustic, FLAT boots (high shafts/oveknee/thigh high!!) with no zippers and MORE legwarmers with no boots attached for us. Please? ๐Ÿ˜€ Please? I promise we really need and buy them!

But, lets see what my avi is wearing in these pics! ๐Ÿ™‚

The hair!

This is a new(ish) style by Little Bones (Nova Faerye) called Nightingale. Usually, I always had issues with Little Bones’ hairshapes, they used to look quite flat on me. I am not sure whether she changed these or if I just got luckier recently (I didn’t change my head’s shape!), but I bought this one and another style yesterday and I like them both a lot. If you look at the demos and vendor pictures in her store, you will notice that her hairs have improved a lot over the past months and have gotten a lot more detailed (thinner, more natural looking strands for example). Back in the days, her hairs usually had very strongly visible roots too which now look a lot more natural imho. I like these textures a lot, especially the highlights. I am not a fan of terribly dry looking textures and these are just well balanced.

A colourpackage costs 270 Lindens which is a tiny bit more than the usually average price I seem to see everywhere (250 L). The hair comes in two sizes (L basically being the version for big boobies) and each package contains eleven tones so that’s really a nice deal. I very much enjoy both the reds and the blondes. The blondes range from very pale, platinum blondes to slightly reddish, darker tones, so there’s something for everyone in there, imho. I do like the streaks option: The front part of this hair can be textured differently via the streaks option on the HUD and thus give it a more vivid look.

What I do miss is an essentials/basics pack with one to two variations of each colours included. At first I thought the ‘landslide pack’ was precisely this, but looking closely at the texture preview on the prim, it seems to be a certain variation of fading tones and such. Not sure, there was no demo of each HUD included so I cannot really tell. I really think preview HUDS should generally be included in demos, even though it is probably a huge hassle to make those, but they are important for an impression of how a colour/ombre/style might look. Also, I really wish not only the front part could have the streaks applied, but the entire hair. Still, among the top five of my current fav hairs!

The top!

The top I am wearing is a newer release by Quality Designs (Jessie Auer) upon which I just recently stumbled after checking out their store after ages again. I never used to be terribly much impressed with their releases for girls (mostly dresses) but this small top caught my eyes almost instantly: First of all, it’s leather. Second, it has laces, and third, it works well with corsets. YAY! It was pretty cheap too! So all these were valid arguments for me to buy it without even checking for a demo. ๐Ÿ˜› And I really quite like it. The laces are awesome and I really enjoy the rough look of it. The lower part is wide enough to make it fit over most corsets and it’s rustic, rough leather look makes it viable for a TON of various outfits for various characters. A great item for mixing and matching. However! I really do wish the buttons weren’t texture only but actually meshes, too, that would have been insanely neat. Still though, totally an item I personally will wear a lot.
