Kyoto On My Mind

Halloween look #2 – The Geisha.

This is a fun look that doesn’t require a single teleport or a single Linden.  Simply click the marketplace links in the style card, buy for 0L,  and dress.  Most of the items are copy/mod so can have fun putting your unique signature on the ensemble. 

The Curious Kitties Shop supplied the Kimono & hair.  We did modify the hair a bit.  First we made the flexi bits invisible.  Then we added the wine streaks to jazz up the design.

Next we removed the peachy hue from the orchids.

To create the Geisha powdered skin tone we added a skin tint tattoo layer.  Then we layered eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick tattoos. The overall effect created a lovely Geisha look without having to purchase a new specialty skin.

When recreating this makeup be sure to add the lipstick last.

Here’s a closeup of streaks.

We added that same wine hue to the sandal straps.

Now let’s talk socks.  These socks are rigged and full perm.  So if you want to work on them you’ll need to rez them on the ground, make your modifications, take them back into inventory and then wear them.  Since the sock mesh is high above the ankle, the socks were showing through the kimono whenever our model moved.

To solve that problem we added more alpha to the sock texture hiding the top half of the sock mesh.  It worked like a charm.  Our texture is available at the All Spiffed Up Headquarters.

Halloween is coming… YIKES!  Whether you are new to SL or a seasoned pro one thing holds true:  You can never have enough costumes in your virtual closet.  To help you never get caught in the same outfit twice, team All Spiffed Up is dedicating this weekend to rounding out your spooky wardrobe.

Our first offering is Drac’s Layla Blue Leopard Dress.  It comes sized to fit most mesh bodies and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.  Drac is currently running a store wide Halloween hunt.  There are 20 free hunt gifts to be found.  The hunt objects are relatively easy to find, so you are guaranteed to leave the sim happy and laden down with boxes to open.

Drac is a large store with lots of merchandise.  In addition to the hunt items there are several random freebies dotted around the premises.  Best of all, Drac’s upper level has a games room where you can chill while challenging your bestie to a round of Greedy Greedy.

The lovely fur is a gift from Indyra found at the current Tres Chic event.

Gemma’s eyes are a wearable demo/gift from Mayfly.

When Gemma came over for the photo shoot we immediately thought of a grown up Pebbles from the Flintstones.  So, to round off the outfit team All Spiffed Up meshed up a set of rock jewely exclusively for our readers.  We’ve made the set copy/mod so you can resize and recolor to fit your specific needs.  The Yabba Dabba Jewelry Set is available at the All Spiffed Up Headquarters.

Fingernails are always a bit of a problem for classic avatars.  Before the introduction of mesh avatars several of our models parted with large wads of lindens is search of the perfect manicure.

Thanks to the marketplace store Vika Design our readers don’t have to follow in our linden bleeding footsteps. These flashy nails are not only free, but also copy/mod. Once you file away an original copy for safe keeping you’re free to recolor and re-texture to your hearts content.

What’s Up Pussycat?

What's Up Pussycat? cover
Meow!  No your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve found yet another “hipster cat” outfit for you at FLG & No Cabide.  The backless t-shirt and skirt come boxed together.  They come sized to fit most of the major mesh bodies.  Unfortunately, standard mesh sizes are not included.

Of course, thanks to The Mesh Project the omission of standard mesh sizes and their corresponding alphas is never a problem.  A quick teleport to The Shops will remedy that problem ASAP.  The TMP beta free female body is always just a few clicks away.

Naturally, a system body wearer can always cobble together a few alphas and pull off this ensemble fairly well.  However the backless design of the t-shirt made doing that  quite a challenge.  In the end, it was easier for our model Gabby to simply change over to the TMP body.

Today’s flowing hairstyle is a Lucky Board find from Olive Hair.  It comes with a wonderful HUD loaded with terrific colors and a streak option.  If you are a hair enthusiast a visit to Olive is definitely in order!
