Xin and Mesh Heads

She approached the ruined city and knew it would be another ghost town. She could see that nature was overtaking it much like many of the other places she had visited while looking for other survivors. She walked through the streets winding her way through wrecked vehicles. She went inside one of the sturdier looking buildings and made her way to the roof. Sitting on a ledge she looked out over the city hoping to spot a sign of life.

#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - SlinkA flicker of red-orange on another roof top caught her eye and she stood in surprise. There was a fire burning, and it wasn’t the building. It was too small to be sure but she thought she could make out what seemed to be a sleeping bag as well. She hurried back down to the street and made her way to the other building. She climbed back up to the roof, this time having to back track and use multiple staircases because of damage to the interior of the building. She passed bullet holes in the walls and blood stains all over and suppressed a shiver of disgust. Finally she made it to the door for the rooftop and pushed it open slowly.

#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - LelutkaThere was a sleeping bag and a small bonfire as well as bottles and empty food cans littering the roof. She stepped towards the fire looking around to find the person who must have made it. Only another survivor could have done it, the mindless creatures the virus had made its victims couldn’t speak let alone remember how to make fire. She noticed a paper tucked under one of the bottles and stooped to free it. It was a note. It was from another survivor to anyone who might find it. They had moved on to the next city, no one was left here. There was two of them a young couple that had escaped the virus and like her were searching for other survivors. They had gone north and would wait in the next city for a week before moving on. She clutched the note tight. It was getting dark, so she settled down and ate some canned beans. She would head north at daybreak and hope to find the couple. Maybe then she wouldn’t be alone anymore. She double checked that her gun was loaded and ready and snuggled down into the sleeping bag. For tonight she would enjoy her temporary safety and the warm fire.


#42 Exposeur Pipes - LelutkaWell that was a surprise. 🙂 I actually wasn’t planning to write a story for this post but I started what was going to be a small description of her finding the ruined city and words just kept coming. I had been looking forward to going and exploring this sim since I began to see pictures of the new build on flickr. Xin did an awesome job! I also wanted to compare my two mesh heads. I have had the slink head Emma for a while and while I like it okay I found it near impossible to find hairbases for. The one I used for this post is the only one I was able to find thanks to a fellow blogger in the SL Blogger Support group. Its not a shaved hairbase, but I used it anyways. I love Adonnes’ hairs and many of them need shaved hairbases. I had been hesitant to get a different mesh head because I was having trouble finding ones I liked that my favorite skin people also make appliers for. Then Lumae, my skin sponsor and favorite skin store, got accepted to make appliers for the LeLutka heads. Still I was indecisive because they are pretty pricey, until they made two wonderful hairs with hairbase appliers for their heads. Cassie is a pretty mohawk type hair with a shaved hairbase, and Ciara is a cornrow hair with a matching hairbase. After seeing Cassie I knew I wanted a Lelutka head. Below I show you a comparison of Slink’s Emma and Lelutka’s Stella. They have the same skin and hair and piercings and all. Stella is on the left and Emma on the right.#42 Xin and Mesh Heads - Slink vs Lelutka

They both have their good and bad points but overall I like Stella better. I will still use Emma sometimes I am sure, but Stella is closer to what I like my face to look like. Sadly I don’t really know how to describe why that is.

Along with showing you the new Xin sim, I also wanted to use my new Exposeur Pipes prop as well as Otherskin’s exclusive snake tongue available at Fair Play. Credits and links to stores are below!

Nightmare Dressed Like a Daydream

#37 Nightmare Dressed Like a Daydream

Okay I’ve wanted to do a cyberpunk look for a while. It’s another of my favorites. When I saw this mask and arms at Fantasy Faire by two of my favorite stores I knew I had to use them! The outfit and boots I picked up at Colab88 from R2. I hadn’t heard of them before but am really liking their stuff. I also knew I wanted some glowing tattoos, so I went to Fallen Gods to see if they had some with slink appliers and saw their sign for their new skin/tattoos gacha at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. A million teleport tries and 1,000 L later I had the skin I wanted and a selection of tattoos. Then came location and posing. It took a while but I think it came together nicely. 🙂

#37 Nightmare Dressed Like a Daydream Closer

What do you guys think of the new blog design? I really like it. It doesn’t show all my photos together but it does have a lot easier navigation and a sidebar I can display my sponsors and blogroll on. The basic template started out as pink. >.> I am not a pink person so thankfully it had two other color choice options.

Sorry there is no story with this look, I am still fighting headaches and didn’t want to delay the post until my brain decided to play nice again. Stuff to look forward to – Fantasy Gacha Carnival items and stories to go with! Also a few more We ❤ RP looks and Thrift Shop 9.0 as well.

Among the Ruins

I did this one in two windlights, because although I like the sun one it changes her coloring quite a bit. I am also adding a composite photo so that I can show off some really nice details.
