Oh the poseability

Oh the poseability

The right pose can make or break a photo. In my research for new bento poses for blogging, I found that the best way to familiarize yourself with a variety of brands is through the Marketplace. I went on the Marketplace and searched for ‘bento pose’ then I filtered it by the Animations category, and sorted price from low to high. I found at least a dozen free or $1L poses that looks natural and cute for blogging. Smart brands give away nice freebies to showcase their products and gain new customers.

New Skin 2018

New Skin 2018

I’m diving into 2018 with a new skin! My last favorite skin was from six months ago, so I’m due for a much-needed skin update. It is definitely a new year’s miracle that I liked not one but two new skins from Glam Affair, both released within the past two weeks.

New Skin 2018

Glam Affair – Michelle

The new Michelle skin from Glam Affair (@Collabor88) will be my new skin! I still look similar than what I’m used to, cos I am sticking with the same skin brand. One of the nice things about staying with a skin brand, is that most of the makeups are interchangeable between the different faces. This is why I find it incredibly hard to change skin brands and/or skin tones!

New Skin 2018

Glam Affair – Michelle with Denise lipsticks

Before I tried on Michelle, I definitely chose the Denise skin from Glam Affair (@Uber) as my new skin. I love the lipsticks! After I tried on Michelle, I decided to wear it as my new skin instead, so now I will just wear the Denise lipsticks over the Michelle skin. I’m complicated.

How old is the skin that you’re wearing now? Let me know in the comments!

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Caralisa
Blueberry – Zuzu Knotted Top

Maitreya - Lara Mesh Body v4.0 (Bento Hands Update)

Just last month, I blogged about the SLink Dynamic Hands, and today I bring you the Maitreya Bento Hands! Now that I’ve worn both pairs of hands, my observation is that they’re both quite similar products with each having a dozen or so poses included, along with more options such as the ability to change nail shapes, and control the hand poses independently. Both are also free updates if you already own the hands (for SLink) or the body (Maitreya).

Which hands should you wear? The obvious reason is to pick a pair of hands that you like best overall. I the SLink hands shape, but I love the almond nail shape on Maitreya. Both of these hands include casual hand shapes, in addition to some unique ones so it’ll be fun to swap them out for different photos.

How do you get the free update if you already own the Lara Mesh Body from Maitreya? Just wear your body, you should receive a package automatically.

What I’m Wearing:

Wasabi Pills – Shizuko Mesh Hair (Style 2)
Teefy – Daisy Romper (Bloom)

I just wish I had more time to blog, cos the things released in SL now are the best they have ever been. I’ve worn my dynamic SLink hands exclusively, and buying new nail  polishes to add to my huge collection. I bought the new SLink ballerina style nails (@ Skin Fair), and it’s such a nice change from the default shapes. I can’t wait for more rounded nail tips!

Teefy released this adorable Simone Dress (@ N21); I love the pattern! I am pairing my outfit with the Asuka hair from Truth (@ Uber), and wearing the hat cos it has a shade of blue that matches perfectly with my dress.

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Asuka (+Hat)
Teefy – Simone Dress (Retro)
Ingenue – Ulla Sneakers (Navy)

SLink Dynamic Hands

SLink Dynamic Hands have arrived! If you love bento mesh heads, you’ll love these dynamic (aka bento) hands. I haven’t tried the other bento hands on the grid, cos I was waiting for a release for a body that I do own, like SLink or Maitreya. The bento update is free, if you already own SLink avatar enhancement hands; go to the SLink store to get a re-delivery.

At the moment, the only poses available are the standard ones from SLink hands, but more poses are coming soon. I love that switching hand poses is now done through a HUD – so no more switching hands for different poses, there’s only one pair to wear. The movements are super smooth, and the ‘relaxed’ hands even have subtle finger movements to add more realism.
