All of My Friends are Heathens

It seems like everyone is talking about Bento lately with good reason. If you haven't heard of Bento by now crawl out from underneath your rock and join the SL World. Bento was released back in December I believe by Linden Labs as the new Avatar Skeleton. It makes for more realistic movement and makes the avatar as a whole more realistic for mesh creators. At least that's my understanding. With that being said let me talk about what Bento products I have tried.

I broke down and bought the Vista Bento Hands not thinking about seeing if Slink had updated her stuff. They aren't super duper user friendly like the Bento hands that come with the Maitreya Lara Mesh body. Slinks are more user friendly than the Vista hands but you have to buy the hand animations seperately or instead of updating all the hands you bought you suck it up and pay out of pocket for the big "Dynamic" hands. That too me is a bit excessive seeing as you're paying at least 500 - 700 L for each pair of hands before the Bento update. I've been a slink fan for a few years now but Maitreya's hands have won me over. So have her feet but Maitreya's feet aren't Bento as far as I know. I've talked to a few other mesh body users that own more than one mesh body, especially ones who own the Maitreya mesh body and Slink's bodies and all agree that Maitreya's is the most user friendly with everything controlled from one hud. I own the Slink Hourglass body as well and will probably do a post comparing that body with the Maitreya body, I just have a couple of shapes to tweak to make both bodies look proportionate.

Moving onto Bento Heads. I demoed a lot before deciding which one I wanted. I tried Catwa's Catya head which seems to be the most popular one by Catwa but I didn't like it. I didn't like how much editing I had to do for one head, it felt like there was too much editing involved for me. So I moved onto another company, I don't remember the name of, and although I liked the lips on the head none of the skin places I frequent make appliers for it so I steered away from it. I then tried two heads from Lelutka, the Simone head and the Chloe head. Chloe was by far my favorite and didn't require much editing to my shape's face. I liked that part but also liked how youthful it seemed compared to Simone at least in my opinion. It didn't take me that long to adjust my shape's face to fit the Chloe head and make it look more realistic looking. That made me happy.

All in all Maitreya and Lelutka did not disappoint me with their Bento. My suggestion to you is demo before you buy to decide. Be picky and if you don't like it don't buy it. Whether it's Bento heads, hands, feet, ears, tails or mesh bodies only buy something you're 100% happy with.

Hey Girl




It feels so nice to find more clothing for the Maitreya mesh body. Addams has become my new favorite store to buy clothing from as I don't really have to edit my shape to make the clothing fit. What makes Addams epic is they have standard mesh sizes plus cater to other mesh bodies like Slink and Belleza for example. Most of my SL is spent in Addams now because I love how it looks on my avi and how user friendly Maitreya's hud is to create alphas. Also if you haven't already there is a new update for the Slink Hands, Feet and I believe their bodies.

I'm also proud to announce Dope Gurl. A new brand from the beautiful face behind Latreia Foot Fashions. These shoes are amazing and have some pretty color options and you can customize the entire shoe to be some pretty cool colors via convenient hud. They work with Maitreya, Slink Flat feet and Belleza feet. I will also be helping Galatea Aviatik Morane in becoming blogger manager for the store. :)

Before I go I do have a new mesh body part that I'd like to talk about. I recently purchased a mesh head from Lelutka. It's called Ever. While it is a beautiful head and Lara Hurley makes beautiful faces for them I do have a few complaints. Lelutka doesn't work with Omega and doesn't have baby hair hairbases or really work with a lot of hair. I wish it did because a lot of hair I have I can't wear unless I take the head off. I do have to admit that I'm loving the facial expressions and the options to wear lashes or not and the ability to change the opening of the eyes. If you have any mesh heads let me know in the comments below what you think about them and what you wish were changed.

This is Halloween And Pumpkin Spice

Events this month have been making me spend so much that I'm like WHY MUST EVERYTHING BE CUTE! Collabor88, The Arcade and Saving sight have been events that I've hit up a couple of times already this month and the month isn't over yet so I may hit them a couple of more times. Before I jump into my look and say how utterly amazed I am with it I'm going to tell you about Saving Sight.

Saving Sight is an amazing event that so many amazing designers have created for. It's to help the creator of Deadpool Jetx Chrome with his medical bills because he has a disease called Graves/Thyroid and every shot he gets into his eyes is extremely expensive. The whole event is centered around him and how SL looks after it's own and we take care of each other. If you would like more information I will link the gofundme and the facebook page below and I hope you go check out this event, It's an amazing thing to be able to take part in.

So on to my look! Collabor88 has this round dedicated to spooky and I may have went a tad overboard and was like omg everything is cute. I originally wanted maybe 2 things and came home with like 6. I have a serious shopping problem I swear. The Arcade didn't help because they have these cute things that although I didn't add my .birdy. pets were totally cute. I did however add this septum piercing that I'm kind of obsessed with because of how cute it is.

I do have a new mesh body that I've been seeing everybody talk about these last few months as well and I finally caved and spent the almost 3k for. The Maitreya Mesh body is TO DIE FOR. Yes finding appliers can be a little trying at times and you CAN expect to see Maitreya appliers from my store Narcissistic soon as soon as I figure out how to upload those items to marketplace. If anybody knows how please link that in the comments. Anyways the Maitreya body is compatable with Omega appliers and mesh clothing and the hud is incredibly user friendly. I was scared that since I was spending so much I wouldn't be able to wear some of my favorite brands or some of my favorite mesh but I can. Maitreya's default skin tones are the Glam Affair tones so for all of you Glam Affair lovers you DO NOT need to buy appliers UNLESS you have I think the Polar tones or the tones that were released AFTER the Maitreya body was already released so do not fret. I am in love with the body and I do have plans to do a post where I show you how the body looks nude soon as RL gives me some time to I promise. In the mean time please try the demo and let me know what you think of it. I'd love to hear from you! Happy Shopping!

#FuckCancer


Lately it feels like I'm being pulled in different directions and want to show off one look but end up going with something completely different. It's like that with people too it seems and I'm getting pulled apart at the seams. One thing I'm proud of is that this look came together easily. I recently got this jacket from Delirium Style and wanted a cute vest to go under it and wanted to look like I was ready to go out on the town and make all the boys cry so I'm proud to present a new release from Narcissistic, the Tequila Vest. It comes in 3 colors and also has options to have tank tops. 

I also stopped by the Hair Fair. I have made it a point to go every year to support Wigs for Kids and help to support children who have cancer to get wigs in real life. Nobody should feel self conscious and this is one charity that I will support whole heartedly. I also found out that a designer I like and have followed for a couple of years now (who also used to sponsor my blog under it's former name Elfies Unite for Fashion) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Limphoma. She has set up a gofundme fundraiser to help with medical costs and support of her family while she undergoes treatments. I'll leave a link to her website and gofundme below.

I've Been So Hollow Inside


So I've been debating on getting the Loud Mouth for ages and have been putting it off because it was another Mesh Body Part that I didn't think I needed or really wanted. I was waiting to see if more skin creators would make appliers for this particular product and I was thrilled when I saw that Glam Affair did. I'm not sure if Lara Hurley has yet but I do hope she makes the appliers soon if she hasn't. I'm honestly in love with my Loud Mouth and love that you can get different teeth for it. Being the vampire freak that I am I purchased the vampire teeth, which are sold separately, but don't worry the mouths come with teeth that you have the option of wearing or getting other teeth for. But yea I'm loving the Mouth and how it looks tons better than my default mouth. Don't get me wrong I also love the default lips but these look better like I'm smirking more instead of just frowning. So if you've been debating on getting this product but haven't completely made up your mind I say go for it because it's a well crafted and easy to use product.

Anywhooooo I've also been wanting these little ring doohickies for my slink hands. I saw they were apart of an event but since I don't log into SL as often as I used to I missed out on the event. Thankfully though they're now on marketplace and the creator has so much for the slink hands that are usable on the Male and Female hands. Definitely check them out. I also kind of went overboard on getting things from Suicidal Unborn and grabbing up their group gifts. My eyes are the newest group gift and I have to admit I'm in love with these. I love how they look and how you can even put in the mesh eyes and make your eyes two different colors. I also picked up these garters that I adore and finally have use for this collar. All in all I got the Wednesday Addams vibe going on that I absolutely love.... because it feels like Wednesday Addams after she hit puberty and discovered dark kawaii. I hope you all have enjoyed the look as much as I've enjoyed putting it together. Happy Shopping!

She Works it Like the Wicked Witch of the West


Shopping is soothing for the soul and lately it's been so nice to be able to log in SL and shop. Hit up my favorite stores and put together a look and play dress up. Lately I've felt like having an edgy look I could wear to a club and rock for a while. I found this cute corset from No-Limitz and it seemed to make this dress pop a little bit more and add a bit of color. It was a perfect contrast to this hair I recently picked up from Raw House. I do have to say I'm pretty impressed with this hair and love how it looks like it's a long mohawk that hasn't yet been styled. I love it. I'm loving the whole look in general and will be totally rocking it until I feel like changing again. In the mean time happy shopping!

Messing With Your Head

I've been rewatching True Blood lately and have been remembering all of the reasons why I love Pam and how her fashion sometimes inspires how I dress for the day. This pretty pink dress was only 1 linden and comes with appliers for butts, boobs and I think other bodies but since I don't own any of the mesh bodies I don't really look for appliers for those products but nonetheless the dress is gorgeous and I finally have something to pair with these gorgeous heels I got at Reign for the Pink Fusion hunt last year or the year before. I am in love with this look and love how even something as dark as this collar necklace from Delirium Style goes with this dress even if it isn't totally seen in the above picture (crappy laptop = crappy graphics I'm sorry, trying to get that taken care of). Anyways be sure to check out this round of The Dressing Room Fusion and of Uber there are lots of good things to be picked up. Happy Shopping!
