I’m a Heartsick Twi’lek

12 Comments

Twi’leks are tall, thin humanoids with skin pigment that spans a rainbow of colors. Their most distinctive feature is a pair of shapely prehensile tentacles that grow from the base of their skulls.*

Ever since I first saw STAR WARS: Return of the Jedi, I was fascinated by these mysterious creatures with the strange tentacles growing out of their heads. And now, thanks to Aeva//Heartsick, I can BE one in SL! This lavender beauty is a complete avatar offered for sale at the For Aeva Heartsick event, which started yesterday and runs through May 14th. Love gave you a great run-down of the event yesterday, and Goldie also showed a couple of items, so I’ll invite you to check out their posts for more information about this fundraiser. I decided to participate because I think Amesha Jewell’s skins are very pretty, especially her petite skins, which she recently started selling. So… go check it out! :-)

Heartsick Twi'lek

The Twi’lek Avatar ~ Tyrian Light includes pretty much everything you see here. The skin comes with or without dark or light eyebrows, has 4 cleavage options, appliers for Lolas, Lush, and Puffys, and even has optional teeth and eyelash tattoos. Mesh feet are included, so you don’t have to wear purple SL feet. There are a variety of avatar colors from which to choose, so if purple isn’t your thing, there’s sure to be another color you’ll like. :-)

Twi’lek females were thought to be so beautiful that it was considered a status symbol to keep them as dancers or slaves. And one of the few items that didn’t come with this avatar was CLOTHES, so I picked up the Maya Silks Gown, the latest group gift from :Kastle Rock Couture: (100L to join). UPDATE: Unfortunately, I just tp’d over to :Kastle Rock: to make sure the gift was still available, but alas, it is not. There is, however, a new group gift, and there’s an almost identical dress available as their prize in the Lost Treasure of the Inca Warrior Hunt (which actually looks pretty interesting). I apologize for the confusion and hope I did not disappoint anyone. :-( As of this evening, though, you can still get the Maya Silks in petite size at Kastle Enchanted (same group tag), but hurry because it looks like a new gift is being posted!

Here’s a closer shot of this pretty avatar’s face. I should tell you that a shape is included, but I opted to wear my own shape instead. So your Twi’lek face will look different. Ear cones are included, as are the “lekku” (head tentacles), and jeweled headpiece. You can choose from dot markings or stripes (I’m wearing dots). All this for 100L! I was really stunned when I saw all that was in the box. Plus, what I really like is that you can wear the skin without the lekku and ear cones, and just be purple. I’m sure you’ll see me wear this skin again, possibly as a purple fairy or… I don’t know what yet. But I love that I have options! :-D

And may the force be with you!

  1. You look really great Serana <3

  2. Really awesome avatar and pics! :D

  3. Beautiful avatar and wonderfully featured. I love the nice clean shots, without all the gimmicky layers; so we can see the fabulous items being featured. When you have good photography skills there is no need to gild the lily with a bunch of post-process PS layers. Always love your posts and the information you include, such as the background info on the Twi’lek, creates interest in the product.

  4. Tres fantastique, Serena! Very very nice :) :)

  5. Oh dear… Star Wars references again! Amazing avatar – your photos turned out great :)

  6. Thanks, you guys – very sweet of you!

    @Xiu, to be honest, I do a little post-processing. I can’t STAND those jaggedy body parts that SL gives us, so I smooth those out. And those bubbles you see? I’v been experimenting with bokeh brushes in Photoshop. Clearly, I’m not very good at it yet, but I do have fun playing around. :-) Thank you for the kind comments, though!! <3

    /me giggles at @Love. The previous discussion we had was about Star TREK, not Star WARS. :lol: Thank you for the sweet comments.

    And in case anyone is wondering, I did not feed the Mech Creatures. But they kept flying into my head and in front of my camera, so I did think seriously about punching them! ;-)

  7. You say patato, I say patatttto, all those star shows are the same to me lol. I should try watching one of them. Maybe I’d like it. I doubt it… but maybe. Maybe if there was an episode where vampires take over the space ship or something.

  8. It’s simple really… There are no Red Shirts in Star Wars :p

  9. Good point, @Cal! And except for Captain Pickard, the Red Shirts almost always get DEAD at the end of the show (at least, in Original Star Trek). We’ll get @Love caught up eventually. Can’t think of any vampire episodes in either series, though. /me scratches head

  10. Lol @ Cal. @ Serena…I post process also…I clean things up, such as those jagged edges (especially around noses and such), and a bit of an overlay here or there is great…I’m speaking of overlay overkill…when you have to squint to see the pic underneath all that crap lol. Btw, I think Love needs to show us some of her Twilight/Buffy swag…we know you have it girl. :P <3<3

  11. @ Xiu – Fang challenge accepted!

  12. / It’s on like Donkey Kong…oh yeah, I just went there :P
