Home and Garden Expo – ready to go!

I have a bad restless heart syndrome because of everything new and upcoming. My favorite event, The Home and Garden Expo is here again! My Casa Limited Edition Pavilion has new fountain and flower decorations and at the evenings my sky bubble turns into the musical playground with flower garden piano. I actually enjoy so much listening to the fountains I turned my home radio off.Rose fountain

The most perfect shoes ever

Both RL and SL my favorite shoes are clogs/wedges! These absolutely stunning clogs/wedges both have a HUD so it is very quick to change shoe colors to match your current look. Eudora 3D Ragnarok clogs (from Uber) have very realistic leather and lace textures and ArisAris Forward Wedges are so far the most amazing shoes I have ever seen in SL. Both are for SLink mid feet.

Ragnarok or Ragnarök is btw “a series of events in Norse mythology resulting in the fiery destruction and fertile rebirth of the world” (via Wikipedia). I am sure with these shoes it is possible to destroy all little bugs under your feet and feel like the Queen of the new and better world.ragnarok clogs collage

Body and Soul

mesh project body hand and feet

The Mesh Project mesh body is absolutely lovely. Mostly I love it because all poses look much more smoother and natural – I hate hate hate when my arms and legs have sharp angles. The Mesh Project feet are small enough and hands are very pretty.

But like many others, I find shopping at the Shops very confusing experience. The area is all white and it is so slow to find things. After shopping, wearing you Style HUD is also annoying, sometimes I have to detach it and wear it again because the HUD is so very slow or freezes completely.

And clothing…yes I like my body and yes I like to show it, but when I go to dance or shop or explore I really would like to wear my own clothing instead of that cocktail dress which you can have free from the Shops.

Thumbs up for the Mesh Project. It is great to have free mesh body options, although I am now considering SLink version – just because I am so excited to have smoother body and it is too painful to use old body after trying mesh body in action. I have tough decision to make: do I wait non-beta version of The Mesh Project body (which I think is prettier…) or do I buy SLink body (I do have SLink feet and hands already).

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:)
