Well, I had planned to blog Strawberry Singh’s Social Media Meme today. I even started framing answers to the questions on my train ride home. I decided to get home, pop in SL to take a quick photo to accompany my blog, then head straight out to complete it.
Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men…
Instead, when I arrived in world, I decided I would quickly pop over the the Skin Fair. On the weekend, I had tried on several demos. I’ve been wearing my Akeruka Meg skin for well over a year now, and I still love it. But after checking out the Skin Fair and trying on several demos from some amazing creators, I found myself gravitating to the lighter tones. I had pretty much decided on Tuli Elyse Powder, but when I went back to buy it, I realised I hadn’t tried on Helena. Since the Skin Fair is winding down, I was actually able to grab a demo and try it on right in the shop. As soon as the Powder tone rezzed, that was it. I was in love.
(Please note: The slurl for the Skin Fair I have included is for Sim 1. Tuli is on Sim 2, but since I have logged out I just grabbed the slurl from the Destination Guide.)
By the way, I decided not to “Peep” this photo. I simply cropped it and let it stand on its own merit 🙂
I really only have one criticism of this skin. There are two very thin, dark lines that run down the throat. It’s not visible from all angles or in all lighting, but it’s distracting to me 😦 I thought at first it might be a bit of my hair poking out through my neck, but I went bald and it was still there. I can live with it, but it was a bit of a disappointment in an otherwise perfect skin. And I love the choice of brow colours, the cleavage tattoos and the nail concealer! While I am using my own shape, there is a bonus shape included, as well as four other eye shadows and even a dimples option!
It may take me a while to start wearing this skin everyday. The painful process of matching my feet in my hundreds of pairs of shoes already set to my Akeuruka skin will be an impediment. But in the meantime, I’ll stick to boots and my GOS Boutique shoes with their awesome skin database system. Ah, the trials of Second Life plastic surgery!
I’ll leave you with this song while I admire my new face and NOT think about those colour-matching HUDs 🙂
