Comic strip skin

Fingerpori is very popular Finnish comic strip by Pentti Jarla. My new skin is DeeTalez‘s Jarla skin – and I can not stop giggling every time I wear this skin. Fingerpori’s humour is based on verbal misunderstandings and puns.

Yesterday I was a bit anarchistic and bought the skin through the closed Cosmetic Fair doors – could not wait. My timezone is 10 hours ahead SL time;)

First three pics: Jarla V2 A blonde Nordic, Jarla V2 A brown Nordic, Jarla V2 A black Nordic. No makeup, no tintable lip layer, just my normal FTL Natural Lashes.

But I do want to keep looking realistic way to show my age (46) inworld…jarlakollaasi1Nordic skin, nordic background – and tintable lip layer brightness 3. I want to keep my eyebrows black – they are very dark also IRL. It is nice combination with blue eyes and blondish/light-brownish hair. If I want to keep my mixed reality balance I has to either blonde my RL hair or get darker hair in SL:)jarlalips3_001

Oh no! Appliers please!

ohno

As you can see, my new SLink hands do not fit perfectly with my present skin (Mynerva Plain Jane English Rose).  And believe me, I’ve tried to fit them! For hours!

My plan B was to get a new skin. Or “new” new, from my inventory. But I soon realized all my old skins looked old-fashioned and they had too much going on. I want my skin to be like blank canvas I can paint…add layers if I want more make up. Realistic look is also important, too smooth skin is boring. I don’t want to look like a doll. If the skin has puffy eyelids, it is mine:) Mature skins usually do not work but I found tintable age lines which I think are useful in case I need RL matching look;)

Plan C: find a new skin with proper SLink appliers! And I did. After  marketplace searching I found DeeTalez Jarla. I teleported to the mainstore and was ready to grab it when I realized it is pre-released at the Cosmetic Fair starting today. So now I am here, waiting Americans get up and open the damn event:)
