Fameshed & Going To The Max

New round of Fameshed, which is rapidly becoming one of my fav events. Neve have some new lovelies there, this dress is called “Borough”, and I was really torn on what colour from which pack to share with you. I went with this Autumnal shade from the lively pack – Tadah! So so so some neato options on the Hud – means you can remove the inset vest, change lace colours and generally fool around to your heart’s content *happy sigh*. Lots of packs, denim,stripes,neutrals etc and don’t forget you get FOUR colours per package – mesh body sizes only.

My boots are by Gos, blimey haven’t bought any Gos stuff for like eons. I found these at the “Going To The Max” event, which is raising cash for one of Second Life’s beloved designers Maxwell Graff. (Rustica brand) He is having some severe real life issues and personally I love that other designers band together to assist. Anyyyhooo top-notch gear there, these little booties “Vicky” were just $200L, with some great colour pack options (I seem to recall five colours in the pack)

Top Notch Free gifts!

 

Free SKIN - 7 TONES !

It must be my birthday, I woke up to two stunning free gifts! Actually it IS my birthday – yay me ! First up is this gorgeous skin in ALL tones from Laq, called “Camille”, there’s seven tones in total so there should be something you can use. For some reason I happened to  have all the appliers for LAQ already, but you can buy them in store for a very reasonable price. Very easy to wear with a delicate bloom to the cheek area and a light dusting of freckles. Might have to fiddle with the eyebrows a bit as they are a tad too dark for me in this tone, just join the group (its free) and grab your goodies. (There is also the shape included in this and its modify woohoo! I’m wearing my usual shape as I didn’t have time to alter it to my prefs)

Free outfit & tights

My dress and stockings are also a free gift – these are from G Field. I must pop over there and have a mooch, I’ve always liked their gear! Anywayyyy, you get this sweet skeleton dress and matching tights, it comes with appliers for Slink & Maitreya for the tight and regular layers for non mesh body wearers. Lovely bonus that there’s a box for the flatter chested amongst us ! This was sent by the subscriber, so pop over , join it and then look in the history – should be there!

Slink – yes, Iam a convert !

KoiKoi group gift - for slink medium feet FREE!

I’ve long been curious about the phenomenon that is Slink, you know – the hands the feet? Absolutely ages ago I did try the demos for both. I’m really no slouch with skin tone matching or fitting shoes, but after an hour of trying to get the perfect look, I gave up in frustration.  Something that you should know at this point is: a) I do tend to harbour a grudge , for like…uhm…forever? ! b) I can be pretty lazy , shocked huh?. Thank goodness that I’m a member of SL Universe, if you don’t belong, join, it’s an external forum for all things SL related (and some that are not – but are SUCH fun!)

A couple of times threads would discuss Slink feet, and my eyes glazed over because I knew Id tried and failed. Sometimes I would pipe in and say I couldn’t get on with them and people would make helpful suggestions, but remember…”holds a grudge and lazy” right? Fast forward a few months, and since Shoetopia has been open the subject came up again, so I ventured forth and said Id given up with them…BUT…this time I noticed someone (Marianne I think) mentioned about a new alpha for the hands that revolved one issue Id had, and then Siddean Munro who makes the Slink items messaged me inworld and offered to help me also ! There was absolutely NO pressure to buy, she helped me try them on using a demo and I was stunned, within less than a few minutes, I had not only tinted them exactly to the skin I was wearing but they fitted like a dream. It’s all about the new HUD, which makes it soooo simpledimple to match skins, that’s if the skin you’re wearing doesn’t already have its own applier, if so just wear the applier and click. (even easier). Above I’m wearing the subscribo gift from newly opened KoiKoi. Just sign up and these babies are all yours. Arent they delish? Gorgeous plummy pink tone, superb suede leather effect .

KoiKoi Perfetti - gold Slink mid feet NEW!

I was so impressed I bought myself another pair by KoiKoi, these are called perfetti, they come in a range of scrummy colours but I so loved this classic gold for the season. Now check out my foot, this is what all the hoohah is about. The toes are sooper realistic and look at the skin above, can you see those teeny tiny veins? Once you have your Slink feet ( they come in three variations,flat,mid & recently added high which are, at the moment, only for sale at Shoetopia) you just buy the shoes – making sure you buy shoes for the foot you own , ie: if the shoe says “for Slink medium heel” you can only fit those shoes to that Slink foot. Wear your Slink tootsies , then add on the shoe shaper and shoes – et voila ! You can buy allll sorts of pretty add ons for Slink feet (and hands) huds with toenail polishes, although you do get a hud containing some with both the hands & feet. Kokolores has some spectacular mehndi foot tatts which I will try to blog ASAP. I also bought myself  some stockings and tights from Adam & Eve – and thats something I had been dearly missing with my GOS shoes.

Eclectica for Slink medium feet - Leather pumps and crushed velvt pumps - colour change

Now I’ve had these shoes by Eclectica in my inventory for like monthssss but couldn’t review them as I didn’t own the SLink feet – dug them out and I adore them. A real vintage style, retro but stands up today also. I’ve been wearing these with a rather slinky cocktail dress. Both pairs have a huge array of colour choices in their menus, for both trim, button and shoe colour.

GField Shoetopia gift FREE!

If you’re heading to the Shoetopia event,  snap up these sweet deck shoes from GField for free ! These are not for Slink feet, but very handy for slipping into at anytime.

Bens Beauty Group gift FREE!

Oh and because this is a shoe sort of post, I must mention these boots that are the group gift for Bens Beauty at the moment. (not sure about joining fee – I think its free) I didn’t know he had got into the shoe making business as it was all jewelry last time I popped over to the store, if these are anything to go by…Id better get over there and scope it out!
