Vintage Reflection …

Reflection, that is what I am feeling at the moment.  I took a little vacation a week back and I keep thinking about all the fun I had while on it.  Special moments and other things that I wont speak of here.  But I feel like when I seen this pose and the way I envisioned it while setting up it was like I was reflecting on things and how life is going.  Now I don’t want to drop all the deep stuff on you, but its just the mood setting for my picture.

So some disclaimers here, even though they are obvious, I am pointing them out … this photo is edited … I am using vintage filters to get the look, and I did draw hair – not the best hair – but hair none the less.

So speaking of Vintage… I have new Cae items from the Vintage Fair. The Ring on my finger and the glasses on my face.  These classic pieces are staples in time.  This might reflect on how old I am but I really enjoy the classic older looks from the past.  I think this look fits my style, its casual and yet semi fancy, but still its not overly done.  I really like having a unique look and this is what Cae items do.  Her items range from the high end fancy, to the casual I wanna just wear something and go look.  So for me this is what makes her a winner in my book.

I have also stopped by Collabor88 and picked up the new Zenith outfit.  This is a one piece outfit, depending on what top you purchase that is the color you get, but in the pack is the choice to change the shorts and the buttons on the shorts.  There are 4 normal blue jean colors, ranging from lights to semi dark.  Which I don’t mind as they are the ones that appeal to me most.  I really like the baggy sweater look that is slightly off-shoulder.  It gives that “I am comfortable” look! Which is definitely complimenting with the glasses and ring.

My hair is by Limerence.  If you would like to see the original you can test out the demo in the store.  I am really interested in learning how to draw hair, this by no means is perfect like some of the others I have seen out there, but in order to learn I have to give it a-go.  I think it came out … decent?  yea lets go with that haha.  You will not see this in all my blogs, just when I am feeling overly creative and Caleb leaves on his own vacation and I am left to my own world where I have to release all those creative juices haha.  Either way this is the result.

Office in the Making

Well Hallo everyone! I am really excited.  I am in the middle of … well ok not in the middle of … but in the making of, yea making of my new office space.  I found this really neat looking building that is a skybox from Saxiem.  This is a duel story build that is extremely spacious.  I am so looking forward to decorating and show you all what I come up with.  I am even going to give Caleb some space in there! I mean you know that corner that I will never use, that will be for him! KIDDING.  I been a rut lately in what I want to do.  I love blogging and sometimes I want to do things but I find space hard to manage and I feel really inspired when I think about the amazing things i can do in here.  So I am going to give it a go, and my amazing hubbyface is allowing me to be creative.

Now onto my amazing outfit.  I am sporting the new Blueberry release that is in her main store.  I am in love with the jeans.  Its been a while since I done a full outfit from Blueberry.  But I really wanted this.  Its a wet tank that comes with three options, full wet, middle wet, and dry.  There is a bra option for those that do not dare to be risky and bare it all.  So the option to be wet and cover it up still … is there.

I am wearing the new accessories by Cae, yea yea, every post is a new Cae hahah, you know what I don’t stray from what I like.  If that means looking like I am kissing butt, whelp then I will feed my habit.  This music note set is so fun to play with, specially if you have a music lover in your life.  I am wearing two different earrings, each one comes with a pair set, and a necklace … so you are getting a pair of earrings extra!! this leaves room for all the mixing and matching you could want, not to mention that you can color your stones and metals with how you want.  (Check out below for a bigger picture of them)

Go to check out the stores and do the shopping.  Become inspired and have fun!

Bite Me …

Gosh, I do not even know where to start with this! Hi everyone ♥ I am overly happy with my purchases on this look.  I was shopping at Kustom9 and I seen this hair/hat set.  It only comes in a fatpack version and the price is amazing! I was like omgosh all this with such a low price?  You get a hair, a hat, and the HUDs that allow you to change the looks of the hair and hat.  It’s so fun.  I really bought this set because whelp, Bite Me was the the first thing I seen and really … that was my mood at the time.  Which made me so happy to make sure this was mine.

Now FaMESHed items, my gorgeous necklace, YES ITS CAE! don’t judge me … I am obsessed still and its layers and I want the layers.  All the layers.  This gorgeous set is roped, beaded, and Chained, with dangles, I mean for real who wouldn’t want that. Like all her other item you get a HUD, a very easy to use HUD that will let you change certain aspects of the necklace to make it your own.  You can create and control the style to match your outfits.  My Theme so far, is black, silver and white.  It is through all my outfit.   While at FaMESHed make sure you grab these boots I am wearing! Omgosh they are gorgeous ♥ These chunky boots are by Livalle, which is a store I have not been at for a really long time.  I seen these boots grace my flickr and I wanted them.  There are many colors you can pick from and there is a fatpack as well! For this picture, I turned off the cute bunny ears and nose to the boots, but there is that option if you want it.  These are material enabled so in your windlight will make them look absolutely amazing! ♥

Now to my dress! This is a sexy thing that you can find at UBER.  Would you be shocked to know its a JustBecause creation?! I know right.  I read somewhere, I am thinking it was facebook that this was a piece out of her normal creating zone.  Now let me tell you something, if this is what we can expect from sexy clothes, YES PLEASE! We need items like this from the oh so innocent of minds.  I adore her gowns and other creations, but this one is completely top notched…. and notched down the sides.  She even has built in panties so don’t worry about being overly showing in things.  Try the demo and trust me that will win you over.  So many choices to be had when wearing this dress.

So that is all I wanna talk about right now.  But please head over the events, the main stores of the items listed below and have fun, I am sure there is something for everyone there! ♥

The Struggle is Real …

I am going to say that this was the most challenging head I ever done.  This is the new Vista head Zoe, that if you all caught the deal .. you could have bought the head and the AO in the same pack.  Personally I went for the AO, but upon arriving to the main store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that you could get an amazing deal of the Zoe head and Zoe AO all in one pack, and if you are a loyal shopper and use the members card you could get a heck of a discount!  Being that I am a loyal member the head was basically a free item for me.  This does depend on your purchases and how many you make, so not all can claim this items as in a sense “free”.

Now this is why I called this post “The Struggle is Real” I have had this head for weeks and while it did come with a shape and a set of skins in the HUD, none of them really fit my taste, no matter how much I played with the shapes and skin combinations .. I just couldn’t find something that would make this head my style.  I am not going to bash this head because frankly there are some really awesome things about this head that I cannot find in other heads, even by beloved head that I am always wearing.   The issue is not in the head its in the lack of skin makers for this new head and I can be patient, which is what happened.  I been all over shopping for skins that were advertised for this head except one place …

UBER! I went to Uber with my lovey and while we were shopping I seen INSOL … omgosh how did I forget this store makes awesome beautiful skins?! So I seen instantly it was for Vista ZOE and I was more than elated and completely snatched up this demo.  When I placed this applier on the head and then added the shape, it was like the light went off in my head and I wanted this look for my ZOE head, and I got it.  There are so many good benefits in this designer.  The Shape was completely free, in the pack, its modifiable and copy! Then on that the body appliers are FREE in the main store.  You have everything you need to make your Vista head gorgeous, like shown in my picture, I did not tweak the head shape at all.  All I did was make the body shape more mine.  But the head is completely untouched.

Now to not be a Debbie downer on my new head, I want to tell you what it is that makes me love this head.  The HUD for the head is so user friendly, I am in awe of it.  The emotions on it are top notch that honestly, I make this my favorite HUD and emotions over all others as of date.  The smiles fit nicely on the head, it doesn’t look over done at all.  I like the fun quirky like auto replay emotions too.  There are SO many of them to choose from.  So while I say this is a Struggle … at the end of the day, I am completely happy with my purchase.  It takes a little time and patience to finally find what you are looking for.  So if you struggled like I did … take a deep breath, and just give it time.

LAQ Major Update and More!!

This might be the most exciting thing ever! LAQ has released some thing absolutely BRILLIANT .. and it saves us all some money!! So not only are there TWO heads you can purchase that are brand new, but now all the heads past and present can now work off the same HUD.  Which means the cost of purchasing is now going DOWN! and when I say down, I mean you are now paying only 1500L for a head and the normal 990L for skin.  Which still undercuts the 5k that you would normally pay if you were to get the heads in the bundle.  To me this is a brilliant marketing strategy.

**IF YOU OWN A LAQ HEAD ALREADY DO NOT ~ I REPEAT ~ DO NOT BUY A HUD! YOUR HEADS ARE BEING UPDATED!!** If you own a LAQ head do not waste your money on the 3k HUD that you need for a one time purchase.  IF YOU ARE NEW to LAQ Heads … you will need to purchase the HUD.  Like I mentioned this is a ONE time purchase that you will need to make and ALL your heads will work on the same HUD, which to me is so cool.  It cuts down on inventory clutter and you are spending 2k+ less than you need to!  And if you catch them when she does a sale the saving are even more!! So brilliant. 

So you might be asking what has changed?
– Increase in number of layers: 5 blush/tattoo layers, 3 eyeshadow layers, 2 lip layers
– Rigging improvements: Smoother flexibility in making different shapes and animations. Ear area rerigged so that you can wear bento ears with no deformations.
– Higher resolution for the eyelashes uv map. Controls for upper and lower lashes length, * opacity * and textures. Old lash appliers will need to update to the new uv map.
– New animation HUD: Shorter expression sequences for more control over how you want your avatar to interact. Larger smiles. Working furniture animations. Lock neck to play animations without head movements. Eye movements control, including mocap eyes only.
– All shapes are now full permission, so that you can transfer or resell your own versions of it if you wish
– Omega will be preinstalled on all heads purchased up until 2018.04.12. Heads purchased after this date will need a LAQ system kit.
– All skins are also sold separately, so you can pick any of them to go with your head
– RGB display and save slots for color tints
– Right/left ears on/off
– Clear all layers button
– Eye fx on/off, create and opacity
– Mouth/tongue on/off, tint
– Larger hairbase layer area
– Upper/lower teeth on/off

My best suggestion is you check it out, whether you are new for LAQ or you are already an existing customer … you will be amazed at the new quality and how smooth each thing runs now.  And like I said previously said, the way to save some money is a big incentive for these heads now.  I find this to be a game changer for many people! ♥
