Two-Faced





I made two outfits that featured this dress. It wasn't on purpose; I forgot that I'd used it already. Since I liked BOTH of them, I decided to post them both. For reference, the first pic above shows "Amaryllis Un" and the second shows "Amaryllis Deux." 

Fellow bloggers, don't you just LOVE when you spend at least 30 minutes looking for the perfect windlight setting and the perfect pose only to experience *gasp* a region restart? I know you love it.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

IZZIE'S: Izzie Button can do ANYTHING! She's really amazing AND a true sweetheart! I can't say enough for her and her ability. As for the skin (oh yeah... about that skin...), Geanna comes in 10 tones. The porcelain, pale, natural, sunkissed, caramel and deep tan tones come with a modifiable shape (YES!); face-only and face+body freckles (tattoo layers); four eyebrow color options (blonde,light, red, and brown eyebrows drawn on the skin); cleavage / non-cleavage skins for each color eyebrow (so eight skins); a tintable nail base; 12 lipsticks; 11 eye makeups; one eyeliner and a modifiable eyebrow shaper. Now, you might think this would cost you maybe 2,000L or more, yeah? After all, you're getting eight skins WITH add-ons that are often sold separately elsewhere (modifiable shape, cleavage, makeups and more). But nope; you'll pay a mere 1,170L for Geanna in these tones. Geanna is even cheaper in the four darker tones - mocha, cocoa, ebony and dark - because they do not include four eyebrow colors and, instead, only include one, which I'm sure is the darkest available because the skins are dark. This makes sense; I'd think a blonde brow on a very dark skin would look odd! All other things listed for the lighter skin tones above are included in these darker tones. Because there are two skins instead of eight, the cost is 990L! I've listed the skins from lightest (Porcelain) to darkest (Dark). 

TAKETOMI: Here's a very neat, pretty style from Taketomi. It costs 310L. This hair comes with a HUD that allows one to wear a "choker" around the bun of the hair. See?


I was standing in Izzie's when I decided to snap a picture so you could see how awesome this hair is! So the picture is unedited and ugly, but at least you get to see 1) the hair and 2) the tons of skins that Izzie's offers.

BEUSY.: New top from Beusy! There's six colors available, each at 95L. Here's another impromptu picture *the last one didn't rez very well before I took the picture, but it's black, if not obvious :P):

And for those who are a part of the group, or for those who want to join the group for 75L, you'll get the group exclusive versions for free (or 75L if you're not already a part of the group)! Here are the GE versions:

Here's another reason to join the Beusy Exclusive group!

  
Just to be clear, there's a Beusy group and a Beusy Exclusive group. The former is free to join; the latter is 75L to join.

OVERHIGH.: The Candy Pants come in seven colors and are 250L per color! Try a free demo when you arrive! I think the Fair ends on the 26th, so hurry!! I took my shirt off in one of the pictures above so you could see the make and texture of the jeans. They do great things for my arse, and I NEEDED you to see this. :P

::SWEET LEONARD::: The Ganesha ring comes in four colors and a left-hand and right-hand version for each color. Eight rings for 180L! There also a matching necklace available for purchase.

[TAXI TAXI]: New stuffs at Taxi Taxi! The mesh corset comes in six colors - white, turquoise, pink, green, blue and yellow! AND each color includes a bodysuit of the same color and one in black. The bodysuit can be worn with or without the corset. It's a mere 150L for each corset! 

The Poison Blossom Hat comes in nine colors. As of the time of this posting, you can't buy individual colors. One can only buy the fatpack for 900L. I'll alert Taxi to let her know that the vendor needs a bit of fixing, and then I'll update this entry. There's also a limited rainbow edition, part of a separate vendor, that's on sale for 300L. There are only 100 of them!

Here are the colors that will be available once Taxi fixes the vendor!!






I'm not sure if Lavender.Esme is still open. I bought these shoes at a discount event, but I'm not able to find the store anywhere! :(

EDIT: The issue with the Poison Blossom Hats has been fixed! Each color is 150L, so go get 'em!

(red)MINT: There are two wearable color demos, so make sure to grab the other one! Each one comes with non-fades and fades. 

SHAKEUP!: YAY! New makeup from Shakeup! The basic eyeliners are eight strong, and all of them are in black. This eight-pack is only 100L! As for the Sessie lip glosses, you'd buy whatever pack you wanted (black-and-whites, blues, browns, greens, oranges, pinks, purples, reds or yellows) for 100L each. Each pack comes with four versions of the color you've chosen plus three tattoo layers (teeth, teeth-with-gap and pouty lips). Here's some screenshots of SOME of the makeups Shakeup offers at the Coz Fair and some nail color appliers for SLink mesh hands and feet!




REMARKABLE OBLIVION: WHY, YES! There's another amazing release from Remarkable Oblivion. They are available at SL Fashion Week right now and will be available in the mainstore at some point after this week's collection. 199L will buy you these earphones in this head version and one for the neck. Here's a closer look!




*G FIELD*: There are three packs of these socks - Basic, Harvest and Pastel. There are seven colors in each 200L pack. What I love most about these socks is that each sock color comes in knee high and overknee versions. AND you can change the color of the cuff, the top button and the bottom button. You can also change both buttons to the same color.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
I enlisted the help of my beautiful friend, Mikaela Carpaccio, to showcase this dress from Taxi. She asked me if I wanted to make an entry with her. It was funny because I was just thinking I was tired of seeing only MY ugly mug in this blog. I don't have her credits, but she will update her blog with what she's wearing as soon as possible!

TAXI TAXI: You'll love Taxi Taxi! It's a super colorful, uber unique store with something for everyone - men, women, casual, haute couture - EVERYONE! And the prices are very reasonable. This mesh peplum dress only costs 250L. AND I recently discovered the store on the MP here. Take a gander inworld or at the MP store; you will surely enjoy what you see. I look forward to more designs from the creator, Taxi, and to showing more here! Mika is wearing the same dress but in English Summer. There's also a Canadian Winter and a Belgian Autumn. And, yes, those are equally awesome.

To keep up to date on all things Taxi Taxi, do be sure to join the update group! You'll find a group joiner in-world.
