Currently in my SL, there are two things I am super excited about, so it’s time to combine them in a blog!!
The first is Chloe, the next bento head by LeLutka. She will be released tomorrow (Friday February 24), that is, if SL decides to play nice and the LeLutka team will be able to finish the release as scheduled.
Chloe has a potentially more youthful look than Simone, as per popular request. The most visible difference with Simone is her mouth which is curvier than Simone’s, with naturally upturned mouth corners (making her look angry will require some serious and I mean SERIOUS shaping skills!) and generally she looks, I don’t know, sweeter if you will. It will take a lot to make me switch indefinitely from Simone to Chloe because Simone has been me for so long, but on the other hand, I adore this face as well!
On the back of the system, there have been a couple of updates on LeLutka lately. Those of you who are wearing Simone have noticed so. The reason for that is that there were some compatibility issues with Omega, and those needed to be addressed. Also, the LeLutka team has added a rerouting option, making it possible to direct any make up layer to any of the tattoo layer spots on the head. So as an example, you could wear dimples on the tattoo layer and then redirect freckles (which normally would go on the tattoo layer as well) to the eyebrows, and wear them both. Nifty eh?
For all the release notes, please check the note card that comes with your LeLutka bento head or check the LeLutka blog!!
Now on to the second thing that has pretty much kept me busy in SL for the past weeks. Soon a new brand will be launched onto SL, named Poppy and it’s the love child of 2 dear friends of mine. Rui Rodrigues, who was previously with United Colors and who is an awesome mesh artist, and Roslin ‘Cecilia’ Petion who you all know from the sexy pretty undies from Luxuria, and who is one of the best texturers I have ever met in SL.
When Rui mentioned he was looking for someone to share the workload with and who could do the textures for him so that he could just focus on the meshing, I immediately had to think of Cecilia and while I imagined they might be a good match work wise, I could not have foreseen they would complement each other this well! Yours truly has joined the Poppy team as a brand manager, so take that as my disclosure statement.
Poppy is a youthful fashion brand that brings you a playful mix of trendy separates and runway inspired designs that will be must haves for your second life wardrobe.
In this post I am showing our first release, the Candice dress and shoes, which will be available in 8 vibrant spring colours, exclusively for the Maitreya Lara body. The key hole cleavage and the open back of the dress making it both classy and sexy for a number of occasions.
