Could You Survive an Outbreak

Outbreak

Could you survive an outbreak? Would you know where to scavenge for food and supplies. Can you survive without your cell phone? Could you use a weapon and would you? There are so many questions to determine if you could make it, and how long you might survive.

I recently saw a picture on Flickr of the Outbreak role play sim. It got me curious and I paid a visit. From what I have read on the informative website it seems pretty interesting. I only visited the entrance since I was not ready for role playing. But, I will definitely go back soon to have a better look around.

Laq Maxine Expressions

LAQ has a released new mesh head. Maxine is similar in shape to Trinity, but she has doe eyes, the nose is more upturned, and the mouth is less frowny. She has a young and fresh look about her. I loved LAQ Trinity so much that I ran to buy Maxine. If you were a LAQ Trinity mesh head wearer then you know there are few skins made for LAQ. But, did you know that LOGO skins can work on the LAQ head?  In fact, if it is made for OMEGA use you can probably use it on LAQ.

From the included notecard: “5. The skin, eyebrows, hairbase, eye makeup and lipstick layers are completely Omega compatible, no system kit needed! Wear any Omega applier of your choice on the mesh head. If the applier has different zone maps, make sure you click the default zone. There are Omega buttons in the HUD to activate Omega.”

I’m wearing my Glam Affair – Meredith that was made for LAQ Trinity. The different lipsticks and eye shadows are from the LAQ hud. You can also see Pink Fuel’s Kiyomi on my friend Gogo’s blog. Shown here in the picture are just a few of the facial expressions for Maxine.

Gacha crazy Ivana Lockhart ♥ was super sweet and shared her many many extras of VCO U & I set. It is so cute how creators are putting the hands inside of pockets.

Glenny is a new Catwa mesh head applier. I’m wearing it on Tumble. There are several different makeups you can wear with it. The war paint on the cheeks and eyes come on the makeup applier hud. There are also 4 lipstick sets.

The Mischief Layered Jacket from Alt by Truth comes in 8 jacket colors with 20 shirt texture options. It is only available for Maitreya Lara mesh body. And I have heard that Truth will pretty much only be making clothing for Maitreya Lara.

Blueberry was sweet enough to send October Luxe Box members $250 store credit since she couldn’t be in it this month. I bought the Jimena shorts with my credit. The wrinkling and stitching are perfect.

Yesterday, October 23, 2016, was my thirteenth rez day. It is really hard to believe that Second Life has held my attention for so long. Not long after joining I started making jewelry to wear because I couldn’t afford to buy it. Someone suggested that I start a jewelry store. I did that for about 11 years, and have seen many changes in content creation. Designers constantly have to adapt their methods to the ever changing Second Life. Eventually, I lost my appeal for creating, got off my platform and went shopping. I found that I loved it! I mean, who doesn’t love to shop?! Second Life has come a long ways thanks to the creators. My avatar is beautiful and continues to become even more all of the time so thanks to you.

Just Stopping By

Just Stopping By

MINA’s Anika is a really casual and carefree hairstyle found at The Epiphany event this round. It is loosely tucked behind the ears and parted on the side. Nice for going out shopping or hanging out with friends for coffee.

My outfit is new from Blueberry. The blouse has a tucked and untucked version with buttons and fabric color options. The skirt’s hud has texture color choices for the belt, buckle, panties, and skirt. There is also an option to turn the panties off. The tucked in shirt is made to be worn with the skirt. Both of these can be found at Collabor88.

The Supernova necklace is a new release from Yummy, and it can be found in 2 metal choices with 4 gemstones. My Connie boots are from fri.day in the pewter color. They also look great with tucked in jeans. These come in 5 different colors. Both of these can be found at the N21 event. When you go to the N21 event look for the tombstones that have gifts from the designers.

Veechi made new lashes for CATWA mesh heads. There are 12 choices with the new release. Some of these are also in white so that you can dye them any color. These range from natural to decorative lashes. My flawless skin is Payne from Glam Affair for CATWA. This applier was made for the CATWA Annie mesh head, but as you can see it looks gorgeous on the Kori head also. I did tint the lips with the CATWA hud.

Dia De Los Muertos Makeup

Dia de los muertos

Day of the dead is a holiday in Mexico. It is to celebrate passed loved ones. This is not to be confused with All Saints Day. There are festivals and celebrations for the dead. Altars are made to honor deceased loved ones. They are decorated with flowers, momentos, photos, and sugar skulls.

The etching “La Calavera Catrina,” by artist José Guadalupe Posada is the background to the dia de los muertos face painting. The etching shows a lady skeleton in a high society hat depicting the Mexican natives trying to adapt to European fashion. She was later given a body and full Mexican dress by artist Diego Rivera.

You can find plenty of makeup tutorials on the internet to get this look for yourself. Or if you are in Second Life you can just shop Glam Affair at The Epiphany. The Dia de los muertos makeup applier is the reward gift. The applier hud has 6 different makeups to wear.

I am wearing this on the Catwa Bibi head that it was made for. It looked alright on the Catwa Tumble and Kori heads, but the stitching was smeared around the lips. Again, it was made for Bibi and looks perfect on this one, however you can try it on other Catwa heads.

Truth has several new hairstyles out for October. The one I am wearing today is called Debra and can be purchased at his main store. I like it when stores still release their creations in the main store. You do not have to fight your way in to buy it. No waiting a week for the crowds to die down. You can buy it today.

I’m wearing my CATWA Tumble head with the brand new Glam Affair Pia applier. I tinted the lips using one of the colors on the CATWA hud. Today is Luxe Box day in Second Life! This sexy Tee*fy dress has cutouts in the mid riff area. You can pick from 12 texture colors. (edit to add) My coat is also from the October Luxe Box. This Foxes brand Foxy Jacket and Bra are color texture change. There are 8 choices for bras and jackets. Also, an option to turn the bra off.

The Cae Abide Collar is a new release found at ROMP. There are two versions, plain and an open collar. The metals and gemstones are color change. My adorable golden retriever puppy is from Black Bantham. They make some of the cutest pets to hold in Second Life.

My friend, Gogo, bought me the FATE Eye Poser. I love how it gives you more control of your eye positioning. I had been using the Anypose Expression Hud for my eyes, but since I only use mesh heads the expression part is unnecessary. The Fate eye poser also allows you to have each eye looking in different directions.
