Cate

1-cate-sm

One of the most anticipated releases for Skin Fair 2017 is the new LeLutka mesh head, Cate. Well, here she is, and she is stunning!

This is a younger looking head (she even comes with braces), with beautiful, pouty lips and a much softer jawline than Simone. She looks gorgeous in the default Glam Affair skins, but I love this new release from [PXL]. Ava is a very versatile skin as it looks fabulous on both the Cate and Simone heads. I was wearing Simone with this applier when Cate arrived. I’m not sure which one I prefer it with. I’ll probably blog it with Simone later, in fact.

Skin Fair 2017 opens on March 10th, so get your Lindens ready. You’re going to spend a lot.

Two Sisters’ Views

I was working on a different photo of the Freya skin from *Birth* for Skin Fair 2017 and as I often do, I asked for an opinion. Since my sis, crankygit was online, I asked her. She is always brutally honest in her feedback and I trust her implicitly. So, when she told me, “sis, you can do better,” I stopped right where I was. I popped over to see her and she whisked me into her house, tossed some chain link fencing behind me and within moments, she showed me this…

Frickin’ awesome.

I hopped off the pose stand and while just hanging there in awe, I clicked off another shot. Different. Nice. It shows off the skin, which is absolutely stunning, and also a bit of mood. I have found that I tend to change up my style when I am doing photos for Skin Fair – straight shots instead of my usual style. I hope this one does the skin justice while allowing me to be true to who I am as a photographer.

The contouring of Freya is beautifully done and the eyes are just wow! So sleepy-sultry-sexy. I didn’t wear any other cosmetics; what you see are the natural eyes and lips that come with the skin. Of course, *Birth* has some wonderful cosmetics that I will try out with this skin, but for this shot, I wanted her to be just as she comes: beautiful and unadorned.

Cranky posted another version of her shot on her Flickr stream. Go see it here. I insist.

Two sisters. Two views.

Auntie Peep’s Bedtime Story

1-auntie-peeps-bedtime-story-sm

Something a little different at MadPea International Food Fair is this nursery scene and pose/prop set from -NOeditiON-. These prizes (plus another pose/prop set) are rares in their gacha. The scene is very detailed and the pose comes with two different babies – one light, one dark. They are great photography sets and of course, if you have your own little one, you can read to him. While I have cropped the shot closely to really only show the bed, the scene is actually a full room, complete with an armchair for snuggling, bookshelves, toys and other props. It is well worth trying your luck for this really well-done scene.

My outfit is a mix and match set, with an older top to go with this new mainstore release by *Just BECAUSE*, the Tori pencil skirt and adorable plats from fri.day, available at the latest round of Uber.

Unusually for me, this is a raw shot, other than cropping. I decided to let the scene tell the story itself. Just like Auntie Peep should do.
