i have always loved the art of day of the dead, especially the decorated skull images that grace various items involving the holiday. so i was very excited to see these awesome earrings from [Aura]. these earrings are MESH and they are fantastic! since they are not rigged mesh you can wear them as easily as you would any other prim attachment. they come in an array of colours and i think they are simply gorgeous.

you can find these awesome earrings tomorrow at the knitting circle bake sale and then at the [Aura] store after the 29th!

Left For Dead

i was trying to find a cool place to take a blog photo for this awesome dress and earrings from aura (formerly grixdale) and i found this really cool city that looked kinda empty, so i started snapping…

left-for-dead-1

i heard a noise and saw dots on my minimap heading towards me in a big group. they.. they were moaning.. and they didn’t look right. they rushed towards me and i let out a girly scream, breaking into a run.

left-for-dead-2

i stumbled, damn those n-core heels… they caught up with me, the smell was awful… i blacked out…

left-for-dead-3

everything is itchy… i think i need to lay down… i don’t feel so well…

Playing With Mesh

today i decided to play with the mesh clothing sent to me from TenFifteen. yes i know mesh is all over the feeds right now  but i don’t care! its so much FUN to play with! as a photographer, one of the biggest problems i have is trying to make clothing look good, smooth out all the glitches, and make it look like it fits the pose. sometimes that means you are stuck using only certain poses. this is even more important when fashion blogging, since the wrong pose can make a great clothing item look weird or cut though you.

mesh pretty much says TO HELL WITH THAT BUST OUT THE DEL MAY POSE!

tenfifteen-mesh

this gorgeous dress and these amazing boots are just a start from TenFifteen, and i cannot wait to see what else they bring out! these photos are unedited except for a little ps to get rid of the annoying glitches that shadows give me when i take photos. these clothes are exactly as they look in world!

tenfifteen-mesh3tenfifteen-mesh2

of course mesh has its caveats. certain poses are still *too much* for the mesh to handle.. i played with several, and a few broke the mesh a bit. and of course there is the little issue of having to tweak your shape for mesh clothing. hopefully LL is looking into deformer morphs to make them fit to our fat and not just our bones.

for this dress i didn’t have to do much tweaking. there were two sizes included, and i fit the curvy size, EXCEPT i had to make my boobs bigger >_>. the shoes i was happy to see did not require ANY tweaking! size 2 fit like a glove 😀 i’ve never had knee high boots fit without some sort of adjustment so i am pretty happy with these!

the shoe fair has started and my favourite shoe designer has come up with some great new styles! you can only get these at the shoe fair for now, so do make sure you rush over there!

dillydollys-shoefair3

the Cura Pumps come in three shades (dark, medium, and light) and have A LOT of colour combination choices in the hud. you can change the whole shoe, or separately colour the shoe, straps, soles and heels!

dillydolls-shoefair2

The May Dollies come in 3 heel styles (chunks shown above, stilettos, and wedges) and also offer some great colour choices. all of the shoes are black and colour striped, with a separate colour option for the bow.

dillydolls-shoefair1

these may be my new favourite flats! the laurell flats also have 3 shades to choose from (light, medium, and dark), and the hud allows you to either recolour the whole shoe, or change shoe colour, straps colour, buckle colour, and ruffles colour! the possibilities are endless O_O

oh but i’m saving the best for last…

dillydolls-shoefair4

there is a definite chance that i may never take these skates off again XD how awesome are these shoes!

these are the amie dolly skates and they kick ass. the hud for these allows you control of the shoe, as well as the bows, stopper, and individual wheels.

tie me up, tie me down

dilly dolls decided to torture me with some prim clothing this past week. they are both really well designed but take a bit of effort to photograph them :p

tie-me-up

the oola corset comes in two variations but i only managed to fit one before i gave up lol its not that these are not amazing corsets (because they are) i’m just not very good at fitting prim clothing XD as usual with all of dilly dolls’ items, the corset has many different colour choices to choose from, and you can even colour the laces a different colour than the body of the corset (but no picture of that because honestly i didn’t do a very good job at fitting this thing…)  it comes with an alpha layer to make sure you have the perfect shape on your sides and front. if only real life corsets could do that…

tie-me-down

after all that corset modding it was kinda appropriate that the other item i got was a straight jacket! this was a bit easier to deal with, the alpha layer for this one thankfully nukes the entire arm area, so no poke though!

while i am still struggling to make my prim clothing actually fit, i’m sure there are many of you who are already aces at it. so do make sure you check out these items at dilly dolls! she says there’s more on the way *faints*
