Same Old Song

Happy New Year and Welcome to 2016!   Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to continuing my blog this year. Who knows what 2016 will bring but I’ll be here waiting to find out along with all of you.   It’s also that time for New Year’s resolutions and the inevitable breaking of them before the month of January is over with.


One resolution I’ll try hard to keep, is finding new and interesting clothing stores in Second Life®. One such store I recently found is MoDanna and while I normally mix ‘n match my outfits, I couldn’t resist wearing an entire outfit from this store. I love the jacket and the collar is so stylish. The leggings have appliers to make life easier.  Go visit the MoDanna store for yourself and, as always, happy shopping!

Mish Mesh

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

I occasionally wear a mesh body especially for photographs as it seems to photograph smoother than my system body.  I tend to rotate the bodies I have between Slink, Maitreya and Belleza because each has pros and cons.  I do have the Wowmeh mesh body too but there doesn’t seem to be many skins etc. made for the Wowmeh and I thought I heard that the creator just up and left SL.

When the mesh heads appeared at The Shops (The Mesh Project – TMP), I trotted on over to that insane asylum of a store and bought one.  I didn’t like it and pretty much vowed to myself, and a few friends on Facebook, that I’d probably never wear one until I was confident that I wouldn’t lose the facial features I spent years fine-tuning.   This week I decided to delve into it more and to see if I could come up with a look that wasn’t too far from my system head look and also one that I was comfortable with.  I felt reassured in the quest after running into a SL resident at some event who’s look just knocked my socks off.  She was wearing a mesh head but it was a different look.  She didn’t have that ‘mesh head look’ that I normally see.  I’m sure some of you know what I mean.


With my new quest being my top priority, I set out and bought a few heads.  One was from Lelutka (Stella) and the other was the new Catwa head (Jessica).   I already had the TMP Fierce Deluxe Head and the Slink Visage Head (Emma) so I was all set to compare.  I do realize there are many new mesh heads being created and sold every day but you have to buy the one that most designers are making skins and makeups for and right now, that’s the 4 I choose to compare.  (We all know what has happened to shoe designers who’ve refused to make shoes for Slink feet right?  Moral: If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.)

I had to narrow down my choices even more when it came to the skin I wanted to wear.  I pretty much started with the Catwa and Lelutka heads because they were newest and both had nice features to their heads that the other two heads didn’t.  I then went to the website for each and looked down the list of skin makers and went to their stores and bought quite a few skin demos for the heads.  I finally liked one skin in particular on the Lelutka Stella Mesh head but I thought I looked too pretty and sweet.   However, I didn’t want to give up on the Lelutka Mesh head brand so I went back to the store and bought the Lelutka Ever head.  I didn’t think it would matter too much since most of the heads look the same to me but it was what I was looking for.  The Lelutka Ever head wasn’t too sweet or pretty with the skin I chose.   You should know, though, that I had to adjust my system head shape to the point that if I’m not wearing the mesh head I look pretty messed up and squished.   You can only adjust 2 settings while wearing the mesh head – head size and head stretch to try and change the look of the head.  You may also have to adjust your eye settings but the notecards for each head will inform you of the settings to use for your eyes.


I was totally impressed with the Catwa head and I hope to use it too when more skins are available.  Once I was done accomplishing a look I was happy with, with the Lelutka Ever head, I tried on the TMP head again and applied some skins.  I didn’t like it on me.  There’s just something about the TMP head that looks totally fake to me – and on me.   Speaking of fake, I still don’t like the profile of any of the heads because they just tend to have a weird, too perfect look to me.  Even the lip area is a bit fake but I’m working on that issue by trying different lipsticks from different merchants.  My system head would look different with different lipsticks and the same is true with the mesh head.

One other thing I found out is that the mesh heads have only two areas that can you can apply things to – the lip area and the eye area.  I ran into a problem when I wanted to apply my new red eyebrows and new eyeliner.  I couldn’t wear both and that saddens me.  If you saw my previous blog post you’ll see I’m not wearing eyebrows and that’s the reason why.  I wanted the drama of the eyeliner but because of the limitation of the appliers, I went without the eyebrows and I wasn’t totally thrilled with the overall look.

One other thing I’ve noticed if you wear totally mesh everything.  There is this neat little photography tool you can use to adjust yourself like you would any other object in SL using the Edit feature.  (See the video here if you don’t know what I’m talking about: You can’t adjust yourself when you’re wearing all mesh – head, body, feet and hands.  You need to be wearing a system part to grab onto to move yourself.   I’ll have to work on figuring that out somehow but if someone else has any ideas on how to work around this, please let me know!

So here I am with the final look wearing the Lelutka Ever Mesh Head.  I don’t think this is the end of my quest for finding looks that I like with the mesh heads but this is the furthest I’ve gotten so far.  I can’t wait to try more skins and makeups to change up my look with the mesh heads.   Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope some of it was insightful!

Chill Out

I wrote so much on my blog yesterday that I’m tired today and I’ll give each of us a break as far as reading and writing.    “Thank goodness!”, I can hear some of you say.  So onward my friends, and I’ll just get to the point today which is fashion!  It’s just that simple.

In case those reading my blog today didn’t know, I’ve been honored with 2 nominations for the Avi Choice Fashion Awards.  I’m going to begin this blog post by reminding people to go and vote for their favorites in everything to do with fashion.  The nominees are people who give their hearts and souls to make your Second Life a better one so please take a few minutes to vote.  Voting ends on December 1st at 3pm.   Vote Here

I’m very willing to admit that it would be wonderful to win at least one of the categories I’m nominated in (Favorite Female Fashion Model or Favorite Fashion Blog)  so I’m going to ask that if any of my readers haven’t voted yet, please go to the site and kindly think of me in those 2 categories when you do.


With all that in mind, I wish to tell you something that happened to me on Saturday night.  Sometimes after I’m done styling outfits for projects I’m working on, or for blog posts, and I have extra time, I head on over to my favorite club in SL to just chill –  Toby’s Juke Joint.   I love it here for many reasons plus the obvious – the music.   I can visit Toby’s totally incognito and I love that the most.  So Saturday night I stopped in after styling a few outfits and when I walked in, DJ Vali Rau was playing some great tunes and Piffy Difference Rau, who’s a hostess at Toby’s, exclaimed “OMG Linda,  I love your blog!”.  Imagine my surprise to see those words in local chat.  It took a moment for it to register that she was talking to me.  When it finally registered, I was so flattered.  I told Piffy that she made my night and she really did.   It’s nice to know that all the hard work we put into something is appreciated by others, isn’t it?


It’s such an honor to have been nominated this year for a few Avi Choice Fashion Awards, but when all is said and done, I’ve never done my best at modeling or blogging just so I’d win any award or win a contest. I did my best as an SL model because I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t.  I’ve also done my best because of people like Piffy who appreciate my blog and what I do and read it, especially when I probably write more than I should.  We’re all human, though, and it’s so easy to hop on the “I-want-to-win” train.  At the end of the day, I’ll just say that it’s simply very easy to lose sight of the real important things until you run into someone named Piffy Difference Rau who reminds you why you really do what you do.  Thanks Piffy!


Thanks for joining me on my blog and have a happy Monday!

This time of year everything and everyone seems to be in a rush whether it’s cooking or shopping or even preparing for the year-end at work.  When I saw this dress at Seul, it made me pause and breathe a sigh of relief because of its simpleness.  This dress needs nothing more than just having someone wear it proudly.  I love fashion that is uncluttered and simple but still so chic.

Flaunt It

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

There are some things that you need to treat delicately and one of those things is any shoe created by Mayhem Seetan of Azoury.

Hands down, Azoury makes some of the most creative shoe designs in Second Life® but you can’t just ‘wear’ the shoes like you’d wear a pair of slippers.  Your whole body needs to accept the fact that it’s being honored by wearing such different and distinct shoes. Everything has to be just right while wearing a pair of Azoury shoes, from your head down to your ankles, where the shoes begin to transform your feet.  Just as each pair of Azoury shoes has it’s own personality, the clothing you choose to wear with the shoes should follow suit.

I knew all this when I recently bought my new pair of Azoury Flaunt shoes so I had to make sure that everything else I wore wouldn’t be upstaged by my shoes but, rather, work with them and compliment them.  When I was done enveloping my body with Baiastice and GizzA, with what I thought was an appropriate homage to my new shoes, I breathed a sigh of relief that my mission was accomplished.  My feet are happy and so am I.

Wicked Beetle

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

One really good thing about being in Second Life® for as long as I have (or even longer) is that you accumulate some really cool items in your inventory that sort of just sit in there until an opportunity comes along when you can put them to good use. My shoes in today’s post, from Shoenique, are just one of those things.  I can’t even tell you how long I’ve owned them but I’d never worn them until now. I never forgot I had them, though, and when I saw the Beetle jumper from Katat0nik at some event, I knew the shoes would be a perfect contrast with it.

One thing you can’t do in Second Life® is become stagnant no matter how long you’ve been a resident.  You can’t just sit and wait around like some object in your inventory. This is especially true for those of us in the SL modeling community, whether you’re starting out as a model or you’ve been modeling for years, like I have. Everyday you should learn or try something new! I tried my hand at hair painting with today’s blog post picture and I think it came out okay.  The more I do it, the better I’ll get (I hope).  But again, I’ve tried something new and ventured into territory that has been a bit daunting for me in the past.  Don’t be afraid to do the same, especially as the weekend rolls around and you have some extra time to devote to something you’ve been wanting to learn.  At least try to do it after you’ve been to see the new Star Wars movie, lol.   No matter what you do this weekend, have a good one and thanks for joining me on my blog today. ♥

Thoughts and Daydreams

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

I’m still trying different mesh heads even though I thought I was satisfied with the Lelutka head and I’d look no further.  However, mesh heads (and bodies) are like potato chips – you can’t have just one!  Am I right?

I still haven’t worn my Catwa head mainly because I’m not in love with the lips at all – they’re too upturned and perky and weirdly fake looking.  The features on the Catwa head are marvelous and so many makeups and skins are being made for it, but I just can’t get past the lips, unfortunately.

In today’s post I’m wearing the LOGO Alex Mesh head.  I almost didn’t buy it because, quite honestly, the store vendor picture for the LOGO mesh head kind of sucked and I thought I’d be throwing away my money.  (Let this be a lesson in marketing to make sure your vendor ad pics are great if you want your buying public to buy without a second thought.)  I’m glad I bought the head and while there are some features I especially like, such as the numerous expressions, there are more that frustrate me such as the fact that you have to attach a bunch of parts every time you want to wear the head and the HUD isn’t the easiest to understand.   I realized last night that everything such as the hairbase, eyebrows, lips and freckles are all on 1 layer so if you want to change the color of one thing through the LOGO Hud, such as the lip color, you end up changing the color of everything on that layer.  At least I get to wear all those things on the 1 layer unlike the Lelutka head.  As with the Catwa head, you cannot wear system eyes with the LOGO head.  You can wear system eyes with the Lelutka head.

I know I have a lot to still learn about the LOGO mesh head and if I put a question into the LOGO group chat, there are many who are willing to help.  I’m just one of those people who likes to wait until absolutely necessary before I ask for help.   I laughed to myself last night as I thought that mesh heads were like men.  If you could just pick and choose those certain wonderful aspects of each to make the perfect “one” mesh head, life would certainly be grand.

There are such strides being made with the mesh heads and bodies but, after all is said and done, it seems to take far less time to get dressed wearing all system parts and just adding tattoos (aka the old-fashioned way).  I guess I’m just lazy lol.  Then again, I always get this way right after the holidays.  It’s like a big sigh of relief that it’s over and now leave me alone to just rest!  Hope all of you had a nice holiday and are having a well-deserved rest too.

Let’s Play Dress Up

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a little behind on blogging for some of the designers I’m supposed to blog for.  Tsk tsk.  I’ve been shopping for, and playing around with, mesh heads to get just the right look that I want and that became my main quest. Unfortunately, something had to suffer due to my new quest.  I only have so many hours a day I can be on Second Life® since a girl’s gotta earn money in RL to afford all these damn mesh heads and skins and makeups, etc.  lol

Anyway, I think I finally found a look with a mesh head that I really love, but that blog post will have to wait.  Instead, in my attempt to catch up on some really beautiful designs from some of the the folks I blog for, I decided to incorporate all the most recent items in one post.  I’m so lucky to blog for some really great designers so this task was pretty easy due to the quality of the things they’re selling.

Lord knows, I’m really not a gal who wears gowns but these 2 new gowns from ArisAris and Amarelo Manga are really just stunning.  I love the sheer train on the Amarelo Manga Mel Gown and the white Mystique gown from ArisAris reminds me of a dress by RL designer Esther Noriega.  I almost wasn’t going to blog the Reversibly Silken Coat jacket dress from ArisAris but then I tried it on and fell in love with it.  There’s a HUD included so that you can change the texture of the dress depending on your own mood.  I was obviously in the mood for red!

Do me a favor and, if you like any of what you see from these great designers, go and get the items for yourself.  You won’t be sorry and actually you’ll be starting off the New Year right.  And stylish. :)

I’ve Got My Eye on You

Previously posted at Linda Reddevil’s Blog .

If any of you have been following me, you’ll know that I’ve been blogging and writing about my quest for just the right mesh head – for me.  Well, let me just say that I might once again change my mind but for now I think I’m happy with my look in today’s post.  Finally.  And guess which head?  The CaTwa Annie head!  I knew I’d have to eat my words about what I said previously about the lips on the CaTwa mesh heads but I was talking about the Jessica head.  The CaTwa Annie mesh head’s lips are far better and more realistic.

Denim Overalls_Sitting

I have quite a few mesh heads now and skins to go with each that I won’t be at a loss if I wish to change up my look.  I only toyed with a fraction of the mesh heads out there, but the 4 or 5 that I did work with took up quite a bit of my time to research and test.  While most of the time it was fun, it could also be extremely frustrating.  I think the hardest and most complicated head was the LOGO Alex Omega head but I love, love, love all the different facial expressions that are available with this head.  The 2 easiest to work with are the Lelutka and CaTwa heads.

Denim Overalls_Standing

In closing, I just wanted to explain why I’m probably going to wear the CaTwa Annie head more often.  It boils down to ease of use of the HUD, the availability of cosmetics for the brand, the fact that I can actually wear the head with both my system shape or my mesh body and the unique look I ended up with using a skin from my favorite skin maker.   I didn’t want to look too pretty or too young or even cookie-cutter.  I wanted to look like…’me’.

Thanks for visiting my blog and if I don’t blog again in the next few days, I hope all my readers and/or followers have a wonderful and safe Happy New Year!! :)
