It might sound silly coming from a fashion lover, but I am very sentimental when it comes to skins, shapes and facial features. I once had a skin for well over 2 years and still get tempted to wear it ever now and again. Every time I change skins I feel like I loose a little be of the essence of the original Sunny I created so many moon ago. I have to be reminded by my close friends that updating and change is a good thing and that the true Sunny is the spirit within.
After a similar conversations with my friends ,Ori & Choc, and a lot of resistance I finally broke down and started to demo mesh heads. The process was overwhelming and I probably maybe it harder on myself due to the fact that I was trying to find something that looked almost exactly how I looked before and that simply was going to happen. The end result was in me finding a helpful tutorial by Strawberry Singh and purchasing the Catwa Head Destiny.
While that process was going on I felt like I had complete block for photography. I took many pics during that time but never felt comfortably enough to show them to anyone. Which was frustrating because before I changed I felt like I had just hit a rhythm and was so enthusiastic on taking classes and improving my Photoshop skills.
Thankfully, while I was waiting in the lobby for an appointment to begin the other day…. I doubled checked myself to make sure I was decent enough and thought to myself….there she is. Finally feeling comfortable in your skin if like feeling the warm sun and the spring breeze after a hard winter. And all you can do is sit back and enjoy it!
Sometimes it all seems so lost. I am again in the major phase of not being inspired with anything. I feel like a imposter of having such amazing items people create and not being able to make something meaningfull with it. Life happens. Sometimes things in SL happens. It is dynamic hard to follow and simple is easier to go with the flow. No matter that I simple adore making photos inside SL, sometimes it turns that whatever I try, it don’t turns as I expected. Also, presenting all those amazing things would be completelly irrelevant – I’ll let the picture speaks. Just check all those free things I aquired, also.
Something is borking RL and SL and it’s driving me borking mad.
So I escaped RL mainly because I knew I had this skin to show you but this morning was the first time I tried it on and now I’m torn as to whether to show you it or not……so I tossed a coin and Voila!
The actual skin is a lovely sweet, pale, simple, peachy freckled skin and I ADORE freckles but the reason I’m wearing gloves and slippers, sorry both now unavailable, is because although you get a Hud with this and it has the Omega Hud which worked on my SLink bod it didn’t on my hands and feet.
The other little thing that made me go “hmmm” was the top lip, there is just a hint of texture stretch I think you will know what I mean when or if you pop over to “Dark of the Moon” to snag it for yourself.
So why am I showing you this if I’m having “hmmm” moments? OK, firstly the omega issue might be just me not clicking the right layer option, trust me I’ve had a bad attack of STOOOPID for the best part of this morning and anything is possible, as for the lip I usually add lipstick to my AV in any case the only time I’ve not got a lippie on is when I’m showing you a skin but in every picture I can guarantee I’m either wearing a lippie or teeth tattoo . So I tried on a couple of lipsticks and they cover that little flaw up a treat. The last things is this is a really GOOD base skin, as I’ve said this is a “lovely sweet, pale, simple, peachy freckled skin” and it’s really hard to find a good free freckled skin and with blush/eyeshadow and lippie layers you can create endless looks. So with a little bit of effort to SLink match your hands or of course if you’re wearing clothes and shoes any difference between hand/feet colour won’t be noticeable and of course your omega or there was other Mesh Bod Huds inc in the pack may work for you.
OH and PS check out the adorable box it comes in, I actually keep a folder full of the delivery boxes that are not only cute but low prim because these make great decor items. Although this one isn’t mod it’s only 2 prims so once I get back inworld I’ll be tucking that box into that folder for future use.
