LAQ Ania

Even though I love trying on different skins I always go back to my beloved Trisha… but I dunno, I’m really loving the look of Ania and perhaps enough to make a switch! One of the first things I noticed about this skin are the brows.  The eyebrows on my Glow Trisha are a huge part of what I love about that skin, but the brows on Ania are just as good imo.  I’m also loving the shape of the lips as well as the perfect amount of gloss on them.

I’m not one of those people who absolutely must have freckles on her skin.  Not that I have anything against freckles, I think they’re cute!  But I don’t have any in RL so I’ve never desired them on my SL skin.  Ania has a light dusting of freckles, but it’s very subtle (you might need to go to the larger images to see them).

LAQ’s Glow Ania is available in three skintones (fair, peach, and nougat). You get a pack of 10 makeups and optional hairbase, too.

The first outfit I decided to put on with my new Ania skins was my red sweaterdress from Luck Inc.  Red is my favorite color 😀  Luck Inc is known for showing a lot of skin; this sweaterdress covers a little bit more than some of their other items but it still shows off your cleavage and legs!  (Speaking of legs, I think this dress would look cute with skinny jeans, too.)

I started out with my Omnia 10 hair from ::69 but because it’s a long style, it kept cutting into the big cowl neck prim on the dress and it was hard to find a pose that wouldn’t do that. If that sort of thing bugs you, especially when you’ve got an AO with a lot of movement, then I’d say switch to a hairstyle that’s shorter or pulled back, like maybe a ponytail or half pony.

I’m really liking Luck Inc’s texturing, CK Winx does lovely work.  But don’t take my word for it, here’s a closer shot of the dress, in black:

Last but not least, the necklace I’m wearing in the last shot is from Caroline’s Jewelry… and some of you Twilight fans out there might recognize it if you clicked on the larger image! It’s the [Lion & Lamb] Rosalie Crest Necklace. Caroline’s recently released several Twilight inspired pieces, and one of my friends commented that the jewelry would also work with fun outfits like period gowns, too.

lucky chair wins

Wow, Evie’s Closet has a special lucky chair out just for Halloween. It’s the Honor gown in Halloween colors! She sent notice to her update group tonight; I TP’d over a mere twenty seconds after receiving it and by the time I arrived there were *already* a handful of avs present. The group grew in size rather quickly:

Of course, there’s good reason why people flocked there so quickly.  Here is the gown:

Another LC exclusive that I *had* to have after reading about it on the feed is the Butcher jeans from Fishy Strawberry. How awesome are these jeans??  They are spattered with a generous helping of blood:

I overheard in the chatter at Evie’s that the chair will be out until October 31st.  The letters rotate every five minutes, so your letter is sure to come up sooner rather than later.  ^^  I don’t know how long the Fishy Strawberry chair will have the bloody butcher jeans and the letters rotate every ten minutes.

I *really* like these jeans.  I think I’m going to have to get them for my altie, too.  Oh, just a side note:  if your av is built anything like mines, then you will probably have to edit the leg prims to fit a little better, but it’s a minor edit and really elementary stuff.

TP to Evie’s Closet:  Madison Place 60, 108, 468

TP to Fishy Strawberry:  Star Beach Island 182, 171, 22

I also got a couple of LC items from Little Heaven (my friend Vivi TP’d me in when two chairs showed my letter) and I had to rez the boxes at my place, to unpack later… otherwise, I will forget about them and they will remain untouched in the abyss that is my Objects folder for several months.  And you can’t really see in the pic, but I’m wearing my new favorite t-shirt from Kesseret of KessKreations:  a prison-orange freebie that says ‘will fuck for smokes’, which totally appeals to my juvenile sense of humor ❤  Gimme a t-shirt that says ‘shit’ or ‘fuck’ and I’m totally tickled by it :p

Gogolita at Little Heaven

I’m supposed to be leaving for dinner but I decided to take a quick peek at YouTube first and discovered that my friend Gogo has uploaded a new machinima. It was filmed entirely at the Little Heaven sim (a great store, btw), which has some amazing textures and a dark sort of brooding, almost dystopian-urban feel… excellent choice for the song she set the video to.

It’s my favorite vid from Gogo thus far 😀
