Thank goodness its Friday! The weekend has landed and I’m here with my new friend Albert that I met while taking the pictures, to show some more amazing freebie finds for you to enjoy!
First, this amazing asymmetrical dress that is the new group gift by BLOKC! I love the shape of this dress and the bright pink and purple tones with the slight sparkly fabric pleases me so much. Pink and sparkle always makes me very happy! The group is free to join which also makes me very happy!
With the SLink Mesh Feet pretty much becoming the new normal in SL, finding low cost shoes to fit them can be quite a task. Thankfully the Demi-Heels for SLink High Feet by M-Nus are the perfect basic pair of heels that will go with almost everything so are a must have in your wardrobe, so be sure to get them while you can! These are a group gift for the SL Frees & Offers group so you will need to join that group for free and wear their tag to claim!
While you still have your SLF&O tag above your head, stop off at Lumae to get their new freebie! They are very generous with their gifts and this one is no exception! Their gift is an exclusive make up for their new skin Nima, which comes in four sample tones all with mid cleavage, Loud Mouth appliers and there is also a modifyable shape (though I am wearing my own in the pictures.. but the shape included is really cute!)
For those curious as to what a Loud Mouth is (besides me when I’ve had a few cocktails ~laughs~), it is a mesh mouth that comes with optional mesh teeth like the ones I am wearing here that are gappy. You can also see the make up better on this skin as well as what the Loud Mouth appliers included with the skin look like. You will need to purchase the Loud Mouth mesh lips seperately to use the appliers included. I’ve used the same windlight setting for this portrait, which is [TOR] MIDDAY – Anime Ciel. I assure you that no editing has happened with this picture, only cropping in Photoshop. The mesh join with the mouth really is very unnoticable with this skin!
Below is what each tone looks like in a less stark windlight setting and with my normal mouth. For this I have used the windlight setting called Torie Senne WL Settings which is one of the many built in presets in the Firestorm Viewer. This windlight setting gives a truer view to how the skins look without shadows and bright light and is the general setting I use for every day SL when Im not trying to be all arty.
One tool I found invaluable today because my eyes really didnt want to play ball at looking at the camera, was the free AnyPose Expressions HUD I found on the Markeplace by Phate Shepherd Creations.
As you can see it has buttons for eye direction, hand gestures for normal SL hands and facial expressions! This is perfect for when your eyes want to do anything but look at the camera! Love originally blogged the HUD here and she is right about it being invaluable for anyone who models or takes pictures in SL!
