Fetish Friday: Disgraced Ascendance

     Happy Fetish Friday! Sassy is at anyBody with some hot buckled latex applier dresses with rigged mesh skirt prims. I am showing this dress applied to my Maitreya Lara. I was totally happy that one of my pre-mesh body boots that do still fit me when I wear my mesh body were my original mesh Irena Latex Spikes Boots. They are fitted mesh but worked well for me with my Maitreya Lara body. I got my Disgraced wings playing TAG gacha which is a lot of fun.

Smile For Me, Dear

       I have not said a lot about it because I don't want to sound all braggy and I never know how to say stuff like this, but coldLogic had an open blogger call a while back and I got picked! I was in tears of joy (literally) because in my opinion coldLogic is one of the top original mesh stores on the grid. It still feels a bit surreal! I am a lucky girl and I feel blessed! My friend Alicia has been blogging for coldLogic for a long time and was super excited that we both were now (so supportive! thank you!). So she asked me if I wanted to do a blog post together for a coldLogic release and I could not jump up and down high enough! YAY! Actually this blog post hits three birds with one stone, coldLogic, Livalle, and Pose Fair 2015- with goodies from all three!

     Our outfits are brand new from coldLogic- dresses and shirts with tied tops as accent accessories. We did not talk about exactly what we were going to wear- so when I landed- we both had the same color and style dress on (but of course we did! we often think alike, lol). That was really not a problem though, because every color and texture in the new release is just beautiful and perfectly fitted to our Slink Physiques (which I LOVE!). Be sure to take a trip to coldLogic this weekend and try on all the newness!

      My boots are sinfully delicious and kind of bad ass at the same time, new from Livalle. I blogged the black ones HERE previously with more specific information about the HUD features that come with the boots. You can try a demo on at IDK event. They are fitted to just about everything on the grid- regular avatar, maitreya lara, physique, belleza, kemono, as well as men and women's standard sizes. Yes that is right- these are made for the guys too! 

      Last, Pose Fair ends tomorrow, EEK! Be sure to get over there and grab those poses that you have had your eye on ASAP. This adorable girl friend couple pose is new by Ma Vie at Pose Fair 2015. 

     Alicia, thank you so much for asking me to blog with you! It was a blast!!! Since I was with Alicia, of course we had to SMILE. She made an adorable video tutorial about how to do this well in second life- see it here.  You can see Alicia's picture and post, HERE

Unbreakable Dottie

     Maai is at Black Fashion Fair with this super sexy slightly retro inspired lingerie set, Dottie available in red, purple, and black. My ploom hair is new at Kawaii Project and I love this retro inspired rolled side updo. I thought the high waisted panties and rolled hair complemented each other nicely. Retro and Sexy- always a nice combination!

Lavender and Peach

Livalle 21 Shoe April

Livalle has the Danica platform in Luxurious Lavender and the Page low platform in Practical Peach today for 21 shoe- get both for the price of one! They both come in Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet versions.

Ducknipple has a bunch of new releases this week. I am wearing two of them the Evelien Suit and the Notre outfit. These outfits come with the standard 12 color change HUD, however I used the edit menu and tinted the tops the colors I wanted. By doing that, it really makes these outfits limitless in options. If you do not know how to tint, you can watch the video that I made about tinting rigged mesh items. All of the outfits in this release came with standard sizes and also a fitted mesh size. There was also a pair of mesh gloves with nails, a dress, and a pair of boots in this release. Get them all at the main Ducknipple store.

Eudora 3D at Shiny Shabby

Eudora 3D is at Shiny Shabby with the new Darya wedges in blue, black, 2 browns, sand, and red color varieties. As always these shoes are intricately textured with a floral wood cutout pattern on the wedge which is really beautiful. Also at Shiny Shabby, the new store miss chelsea (previously blogged here) has their first ever event item- a pretty lace sundress in vintage muted color tones. What is great about this new store is they are offering their clothing in fitted mesh sizes- fit to Physique, Belleza, and an experimental Maitreya. You can get this dress for only 199L for the duration of the event and then it will go to regular store prices. 

Kunglers is having a big 50L SALE on select jewelry, shoes, and clothes. I think their jewelry is great so I went and picked up a few of the 50L sets like the Solaris- Golden one I am wearing tonight. My hair is brand new and super cute from Exile. It is shorter in the back than the sides and I am loving this cut! Because the HUD has been re-done and you get a lot more blonde textures, I am playing with some of the tones which seem to be a bit more streaky- like I just went and got highlights at the salon. All of my poses are brand new from EverGlow at the Black Fashion Fair. The Onyx pose set includes 10 poses and many of them have one foot turned to the side while you face front which are great to show shoes.

Kirsten's Digits and Basics April 2015

     Mesh Bodies have changed our second life drastically in many ways. One way is the possibility to break away from standard sizes and be the shapes we want. With applier clothing and mesh fitted to the fitted mesh avatars, the possibility to be unique in our size and shape AND still be able to wear the newest clothing has not been this possible since before mesh hit the fashion scene. I am super excited about the possibilities! I am wearing two mesh bodies: Maitreya Lara and Slink Physique: and I have made two shapes for each body that I am using regularly at least as my base shape. I still need a standard size shape because I have so much clothing only in those sizes and many designers are still only making standard sizes as well. However, I find myself wearing my curvy shapes as much as possible because I prefer them in every way. Welcome to my Digits for 2015!

     So there are my digits for 2015 and how they have changed as I wear mesh bodies. Basically I had to change my digits for the different bodies to get the same look of "me" that I wanted.  I am so much happier with fitted mesh bodies. It is a huge improvent over the regular avatar and also over the zero body fat and zero torso needed for Azz and Lolas (that I wore last year).  

     I also wanted to mention that my height is 40 on the sliders which is drastically changed from last year. My five foot four is also the height in the game just on your game window when you look at your shape and not with that ruler. It would probably be higher with the ruler, but I have always though the ruler measured too high. I finally changed from super tall and got with the times, lol. 

I have participated in all five of Berry's Digit Challenges:
Digits 1- Before Standard Sizes 2011
Digits 2- Standard Size Mesh 2012
Digits 3- Proportions 2013
Digits 4- Boobs and Azz 2014

      The lingerie that I am wearing in this post is brand new from Dabble Dooya. You get all three floral prints as well as Maitreya, Physique, and Omega appliers in your 50L purchase. The seams are beautiful (because I don't let Hiram sell them til they are and I am very picky). I had him go back and fix seams at least three or four times because I think they should be perfect and I am not happy until they are. He hand draws them including every flower petal and I think his drawing skills are just stunning. On the appliers, you get the full set, bra by itself, panties alone, garter alone, and stockings alone- all of which can be mixed and applied separately. 

1) Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? I own Slink Physique and Maitreya Lara. I wear one of those all the time. I will never be in the regular system avatar nor wear system layer anything ever again. 

2) What is your preferred mesh body available on the market right now? I can't pick one. I honestly love both Physique and Lara. There are things I like more and less on each of them and reasons I feel I need them both. For example, I like the torso and waist of Physique best, but I like the hips and butt of Maitreya best. Fitted mesh that is made for bodies seems to fit Physique better and so I wear that more often with fitted mesh. I believe this is because Siddean Munro (genius business woman that she is) has given actual fitted mesh developers kits to creators and it is my understanding all of the "fitted to Maitreya" is experimental and just best guesses unless you get it from Maitreya. 

3) Have you changed your shape since you started wearing the body? Definitely and changed it for each body. You can go look at my Digits 4 post and compare it to this one to see the differences the mesh bodies have made specifically. 

4) How do you feel about mesh bodies in general? I was asking for them about a year before the first ones were made. I think they are the best things to hit the grid. I actually PREFER the alpha cuts to using alphas that you wear as we used to do. I like it better in every possible way.  The things others sometimes say are drawbacks with the bodies, I disagree with usually on every point. 

5) What is the one thing you would request from designers when it comes to mesh bodies? Only one? I have a list, lol. 
          1. Onyx- please send out developer kits for Maitreya Lara to every designer that is making fitted mesh
          2. Let's stop making standard sizes for good. I see no point in them continuing. Please make fitted mesh sizes to a few of the fitted mesh bodies. I want to see an end to standard sizes once and for all!
          3. I need fitted mesh boots in every style, shape, color, and texture. I need thigh high latex (not just shiny) boots fitted to Maitreya and Physique. MORE BOOTS, ALL THE BOOTS! Please make boots that you have made exactly to the alpha cuts available on the bodies and test them with those alpha cuts before selling them. 
          4. All designers, make everything, clothing, shoes, boots fitted to mesh bodies. Concentrate on that and make items with the body and the body alpha cuts in mind as you design. 

Kirsten's Basics 2015 (all the things I wear and might not list in my blog posts):

Hair: I thought hair changed last year. This year it seemed like almost every designer redid their hair textures and I seemed to need all the new blond textures. My list of hair stores has grown substantially since last year. Like last year all hair is now HUD based so I will include a picture of all the various HUD's and the colors I click most often.  I now wear mostly Truth, Exile, ploom, Magika, Clawtooth, Tableau Vivant, lamb, and Mina. 

Skin: I wear Glam Affair Jamaica, Izzie's Natural, and Pink Fuel Apricot (not released yet) the most.

Eyes: I still can't find any eyes that I like better than IKON. I try on others because I like variety and I like to shop but I never wear others for long and always go back to IKON. My favorites are Vanity Eyes- Azure, Ardent Eyes- Skyfall, and my new current favorite Sovereign Eyes- Blue.

Lashes: My favorite lashes are the same as last year, Mon Cheri Falsies. I still wear the glitter mascara the most. I wear style 2 in black glitter the most.   

Shape: My shape was made by me in 2006 with tweaks over the years. See my digits above for the 2015 Kirsten shape. =)

Feet and Hands: I always wear Slink. I own almost all the hands and all three versions of slink feet. I LOVE the 2.0 update with the Hand and Feet in the same Utilities HUD and the ability to paint each nail separately. I love ALL of the slink updated items; they are so well done. I wear Slink even with other bodies and shoe systems (N-core) because I like the textures on the appliers the best. 

Fitted Mesh Bodies: Last year I was wearing Lolas and Cute Azz. I am so much happier with mesh bodies. I am always wearing a mesh body of some kind. You will never see me in my blog posts as the default avatar. I am either wearing Maitreya Lara or Slink Physique. 

HUDS: I usually have my screen filled with HUDS. At a minimum I have either the Maitreya Lara or Large Slink Physique HUD, the Slink Hands and Feet Utilities HUD, Anypose Basic, and my AO. 

AO: Vista Animations Cosmopolitan I blogged it here.

Fetish Friday: Hugo's Design Omega Appliers

      As I said in my first post back to fetish blogging, I decided on the Maitreya body because fetish designers that were making appliers were mostly making Omega. I even talked to a few and asked them to make some other varieties that I really think would increase their sales. I think if you are making appliers you should make Omega, Physique, and TMP. Those three will cover a large part of the market share and I think make your time worthwhile as seen in your increased sales. Just my opinion though. Anyway in spite of this argument, I was told by the fetish designers that I talked to that they were only going to make one applier and that usually was Omega. It does cover much more bodies and body parts so I understand. 

    Hugo's Design was definitely one of the fetish stores that entered into my decision process. They have made Lolas and Azz appliers in the past, but now they are solely making Omega and Slink hand and feet appliers. Those appliers are included with your purchase now too. The new designs are being packaged this way and they seem to be updating older designs as well. I am wearing a newer design, Bust, in Hard Pink. Bust is a sexy bodysuit with sporty knee high latex stockings and long gloves. The groin area is transparent and there is no covered version, so I got creative with poses to cover that area in this post (to keep my blog PG).
