Maximum Impact

DeuxLooks - maximum impact

I’m keeping my look mostly minimalist today for maximum impact. I was particularly taken with this skin from Moccino Beaute for Lelutka heads. The subtle freckles and fresh complexion won me over. I almost didn’t demo because tbh, the ad photo was some sort of morph (I think?) and looked nothing like what I ended up purchasing. Just goes to show that sometimes, ads don’t help sell!

I’ll also mention the price. You get one tone for $990L. While it’s slightly under 1000L (which for me is the absolute cap for any applier before things get stupid), it doesn’t include any makeup options and only one eyebrow color – which you can see is very light, really limiting your options. You can add your own eyebrows though because each pack does come with a no-eyebrow version. Body appliers are sold separately.

I love the new Hairbases for Lelutka heads from Tableau Vivant. Such great styles that I didn’t even want to add any attachments because they are interesting and beautiful as they are. Maximum impact. However, the numbering for the Tableau Vivant hairbases is confusing. If you have some of the earlier releases, they are numbered like, “Lelutka HB11” for example – and now, they’re renumbering them as “Lelutka HB 03” when there is already a “Lelutka HB3.” As a blogger, I like to be able to quickly find the things I need, because I reuse/restyle older content all the time. This doesn’t help – so a texture of the styles included (not the tones) would be helpful in each pack.

Lastly, I am blogging with poses from someone other than Bauhaus Movement today. I highly recommend the new pack from Kirin at Kustom9!

Have a great rest of your week!

Accessory Update

DeuxLooks - accessory update

My rich chocolate accessories really led this look, perfect for a fall Saturday. IRL, I have been doing a lot of long skirts with booties, so recreating it – somewhat – in SL, was very satisfying. This whole ensemble would not have been possible without the delicate Tee from Canimal. I mean, talk about a perfect tucked top. It’s so elusive in this virtual world of overdrawn, overdone and overblown. It’s a treasure for my inventory – and I have some color requests for a fatpack (that should exist), please.

Separately, did you see that there is supposedly a LAQ Powder Pack coming? I’m pretty excited about it – and I do suggest that if you wear LAQ heads, the first Pack is likely going to be the best Pack 🙂 We shall see! To date, I have liked LAQ’s own skins for their heads best.

Lastly, I have a new color pack favorite from little bones – <3 Babylights. Thank you for some new options!

LAQ Ofelia

DeuxLooks - ofelia

As long as LAQ keeps making skins with strong eyebrows, I’ll keep wearing and loving them (mostly on my Rebel head). This is Ofelia, a new Omega-based skin for LAQ heads. All tones (eyebrow and no eyebrow versions) are $990L as a full pack. You can’t buy single tones separately, but considering you get all of them for the price of essentially one tone from other creators, I’d say it’s a good buy if you like the skin.

I kept my avatar down on the ground in my SLhouse (I did say cats, didn’t I?). Don’t worry, I will eventually TP back to my blogging platform and get back to my usual style while showing the best of SL fashion and beauty (IMO, of course).

Rustic

DeuxLooks - rustic

I know, I normally blog with a plain, neutral background. I’m not a particularly talented photographer/editor so it’s always better for me to show the clothes/skins/hairs with a blank canvas. After all, I am not the product.

Today though, I ventured off my blogging platform and down onto my actual land in Second Life. Although I do not “live” a second life in any way (anymore), I do very much enjoy fashion (obviously) and decorating, in both lives. So, I took my avatar down into my SL garden to really let my rustic outfit shine. Incidentally, I also have a large, fully decorated house (with a lot of cats, lol) that I love to tinker with. If I could recreate this exact house IRL, I absolutely would.

October is a *really* busy month for me IRL. I am traveling every single weekend except for one. I will get as much blogging in as I can, but I don’t expect it to be frequent!
