Delicately Delphine

I hope you have all had or are having a great weekend everyone! Its been busy busy in the Omizu household so I’ve been slacking a little with blogging! Yikes! But Im back now to show you some great new gifts and freebies!

Lumae have released their September gifts and if you love their skins or you are looking to experiment with new ones, this is going to be a treat for you. Their newest skin Delphine was released about 2 weeks ago and their new gifts is a version of this really pretty skin with a really beautiful deep purple eyeshadow. Lumiya Rae, the owner of Lumae, has always been super generous with her gifts at her stores and this time is no exception. Her gift is the skin in all 8 tones, but the tones are seperated in to three parts.. Tones 2, 4, 6 and 8 are in the free group gift for her store group, Tones 1 and 5 are the free group gift for the SL Free’s and Offers group. Both of these are found at the Lumae mainstore .. Lastly the Tones 3 and 7 are their new free gift at the FabFree HQ! I think this is a really fun idea and there is a tone to suit everyone.. be sure you collect them all!

The Skins each come with a light brow and a dark brow options and is the medium cleavage versions of the skins. There is a Loud Mouth applier for each tone but there are no other appliers included, however you can buy these seperately at a very reasonable price at the mainstore. Below you can see all the tones together!

You might notice my avatar shape looks a little different in these pictures, this is because I am wearing the Lena Perky Mesh Body by Kitties Lair. This is a new Mesh Body to me. I have been tempted by the other bodies available but as I prefer a more curvy, fuller shape, they have yet to strike a chord with me even when making adjustments to my shape to try to make them more curvy. The Lena Mesh Body comes in two options.. Perky and Lush. Below you can see the difference between the two. Bear in mind they are fitted mesh and will adapt to your own shape. I already have quite a curvy system shape so this is accentuated in the mesh body. Out of the two, my preference for general wear will be the Perky one but you can get demos so you can trial them with your own shape to see which you prefer!


In the picture above, on the Left is my shape worn with the Lena Perky Mesh Body and on the right is my shape worn with the Lena Lush Mesh Body.


On this picture above, I am wearing the Delphine Shape that comes with the Lumae gifts. This is a much more slender shape so you can see the difference that it makes on the two mesh bodies. The Lena bodies are compatible with SLink hands and feet and they also work with the Omega Appliers system for both skins and clothing. The Lena Mesh Bodies are NOT free but I thought they were worth covering as mesh bodies seem to be quite the hot topic at the moment and I thought someone might be interested!

The lingerie I am wearing in the pictures above is also by Lumae and is called Delicate. It is available in 3 tones for L$75 per tone and comes with system layers that you can wear on the regular Second Life avatar as well as a HUD that offers Omega, SLink, WowMeh, Phat Azz, Lola, Lush and Puffy appliers! So pretty much everyone is covered! Also it comes with a Petites version!

The Petite skin I am wearing is called Una and is also by Lumae. You can find it in all eight tones at the Genre event which is especially for Petites this month! Nothing is over L$100 so if you love Petites be sure to pay the event a visit before it closes very soon! A quick word of caution though, you will need to have a modifyable version of Yabusaka’s Petite Mesh Avatar to be able to wear these skins as they use the Omega Appliers System. If you have the Fallen Gods or Al Vulo Petite Avatar, you will not be able to use these as you are unable to change anything about the avatars.

A Jolie Fleur du Soir

Gavin is humoring me today while I “play pixie” again. 🙂

I wanted to show you this gorgeous petite dress, La Fleur du Soir, the current group gift at Kastle Rock Petites. The group is free to join, and the sim is simply lovely, so be sure to give it a wander. You can see a little peek of it behind us (please click to enlarge).

Gavin is wearing the latest group gift from *Ydea*, also free to join. Included are the mesh hoodie jacket, shirt and tie, jeans, and shoes. Gavin’s Rhett hair is a pre-opening, sneak peak from brand-new designer { Quandry }. You can pick it up at the preview price of 100L for a little while longer at {EPIC}. 5 colors are included in the box, all with a little, red tip in the front. Scarlett, a long braid, is also on preview for the ladies.

What I really wanted to show you is this skin. Aeva // Heartsick is currently having a sale, with lots of skins available for 100L each. When I saw that they were previewing a couple of new petite skins, I was intrigued, and tried the demo. Jolie Petite comes in several different shades, and includes a red, rose outfit in the box. Now, I won’t lie to you; it’s a bit of a pain putting a new skin over your petite avatar. Nothing at all like putting a new skin on your “biggie.” But it’s not hard – read the directions! – and I think the results are definitely worth it! Have you ever seen lips like this on a petite before?

My earrings are not free, but they are on sale at !ELEMENTAL PETITE for 50L. They are texture change with silver/gold metals, and 4 different gems. My hair is a free group gift from “”D!va”” (free to join; 30,000 Members Gift), and I’ve sized it waaaaay down to fit. All the “”D!va”” hairs I’ve tried are resizeable, and can be made to fit petite avatars; be sure you take a copy first. This one includes flowers, which I’m not wearing, a “wig” with a couple of extra buns, and there’s even a dress in the box! 🙂

UPDATED 2/20/13 12:37 PM SLT: Great news! The designer has put the 2 Jolie Petite skins back out for sale because so many people were asking for them! They are still for sale at 100L/per shade so hurry over and grab them. I just picked up the Black Rose version, and I can’t wait to try it. She will also be putting out a 10L petite skin at The Wash Cart Sale, which opened today and Love wrote about this morning. I haven’t seen it yet, so let me know what you think if you try it! 🙂

UPDATED 2/18/2013 9:57 PM SLT: I’m sorry to report that the skin sale at Aeva // Heartsick has ended. 😦 Hopefully the Jolie Petite skins will be available in the store soon.

Keepin’ it Low Lag at Events!

As most of you know, Hair Fair 2010 begins today.  This event is one I absolutely love covering for two reasons, a portion of the profit is donated to charity and it’s HAIR!  As with all large events in SL many find fighting the lag extremely frustrating.  I encourage you to deprim, take off those face lights, and remove the HUDs.  And of course… Enter with no hair and leave with many!!!  I have many low lag avatars in my inventory just for big events.  Really there’s no need to be a Diva at large events where everyone is either gray or a cloud anyway.

There are male and female low lag skins at YABUSAKA.  With these free skins and eyes there’s no need to put on shoes, clothing, hair, or any other attachments.  Just put on the skin and go naked!!!  These low lag avatars come in metal, gold, and stalactite.

For the fashionably lag conscious head over to Lemania Indigo Designs for the Red Sequin and Swim Like A Fish dollarbie low lag AVs.  I have many more low lag Lemania Indigo creations in my inventory so their may be more in the store.

Another extremely helpful thing to battle lag is to Open debug settings (Ctrl Atl D) go to the debug settings and type in ‘RenderAvatarMax’ set the viability between 1-5.  Then all the laggy people with their demos, fancy shoes. and jewelery don’t even render on your screen and don’t affect you.  Just be sure to raise it back up to 35 people when you leave so you see everyone again.  Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion let me know about this tip and I was excited to share with all of you!

*Even if you derender everyone, please dress low key as a courtesy to the other guests on the sim.*
