Rough Night

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, it’s Halloween season again! That means some great, creepy SIMs and stuff to do on them! I’m featuring Ironwood Hills again this season, because it’s such a well-done SIM, and because it has a specially hunt/game going on. I’m not going to spoil it, but TP there and check it out. It’s a fun story, and there are prizes at the end. Seriously, do it. It’s fun! Anyway, SLURLs and details at the bottom!

So Bento is out and the flood of Bento heads has commenced. I have several – two from Akeruka, the Adam head from Absolut Creations, and Alpha from No! Project. Adam and Alpha have probably been my favorites. They’re all definitely different, with their own unique looks and quirks about them. My main problem is the skin applier selection for them. I know, I know, that’s what Omega is for. But the Akeruka heads and the Adam one have eyes that line up slightly differently than the standard mapping, so most skins don’t look right. The Alpha head doesn’t really have any issues with fitting a lot of skins (I’ve found that Omega appliers made for the Signature Gianni head work really well), but it is quite striking and not always what I wanted.

Now enter Catwa. I have SO MANY appliers for them. And Catwa’s first Bento head, Daniel, is nearly perfect. It gets almost everything right, with my only gripes being the weird behavior of the mouth and chin when making my shape for it, and the fact that I have quite a few older Catwa appliers that don’t look quite right on it. I wasn’t really expecting ALL of those appliers to work, but it is still a disappointment. But I digress, this head is beautiful. It animates beautifully, the layers work really well, it has a ton of support from both Catwa Clip herself, as well as the third-party stuff being made by other creators. Though the initial cost was hard to swallow for me, now I’m over the sticker shock and I’m extremely pleased. The only other head that I’m excited about at this point, apart from more Catwa heads, is the Bento update to Gianni. Like seriously, gimme.

SO MUCH BABBLING. Almost done. I just want to say how happy I was to see that Chucky Hollak of Modulus was selling skins again. So far Milo is fantastic!

Done! Credits and SLURLs at the bottom (duh)

Aquababe

First off, I want to start off this post by explaining the title a bit…

The Aquababe hair color from Unorthodox is AMAZING and I haven’t taken it off since I discovered it last week. I’ve never been a huge fan of unnaturally colored hair, but this has definitely changed my thoughts. I’m wearing the Comeback hair, and I tinted my eyebrows and DossiEr mustache to match.

I also want to thank Ross Myhre of Kauna for continuing to make some of the best men’s wear on the grid, and this awesome leather coat is no exception. It’s currently available for free at the May round of Fameshed. Seriously. Go. Get one. NOW.

Not much else to say this time… credits at the bottom!

Wow, it’s been a minute!

The Men’s Department started it’s Third Anniversary round a few days ago, and boy is this a great round! The designers did a great job (as always) and there is a ton of stuff I want need to get for myself. Cold Ash has the Westbrook shirt and it’s an awesome deal, including three standard sizes and two fitmesh sizes AND a free, special edition of the Ocelot jeans. And of course you get the HUD included with a lot of Cold Ash’s stuff so you can change the texture to one of the eight included!

 

The SIM I’m visiting in this post is the Immersiva art SIM by Bryn Oh. This place changes pretty regularly so I recommend to ASAP and experience it yourself!

     These uber-cool Gunshot sunglasses from Redgrave are also available at TMD. The lenses and the frames are color-changeable via menu, as well as resizable. Another item I had to pick up from TMD is the amazing Spencer skin from Birth. In three tones, no less. Birth has been one of my favorite skin stores since 2011, but the latest slinlines have just been phenomenal. This skin is not to be missed, especially for the special price you can get it for at the event. I picked up three tones and I’m not sorry one bit!

And that’s it for this post… credits and SLURLs at the bottom!
