Bad hair day? Well yes, and no.
This, my sartorial darlings, is the new Noor style by [Bad Hair Day], which will be released tomorrow. And by god, am I in love with the colour HUDs for this ‘do. Shown here is one colour from the Reds pack, but you actually get two HUDs, with three colour options in total: one HUD for the main part of the hair—which includes solid colours and roots—and one HUD for the accents, which includes a mixture of both.
And wait until I tell you that, if you fatpack this hairstyle or buy more than one colour pack… you can mix and match across all the HUDs. Boy, did I have fun playing around with ’em ;-)
If you follow me on Flickr, you’ll notice that all of my protestations about mesh heads being something I’ll only wear when I feel like it, for certain looks have turned out to be, well… a load of bullshit XD I’ve had Catwa’s Daniel and Shaheen heads practically glued onto Skell’s bonce for the past few months, so I guess it’s time to say hey, welcome to what Skell looks like now. I’ve finally made my peace with mesh heads, and with all the options for customising Catwa’s heads I can still pile on the slap as much as I ever did.
Soon after getting my Slink hands I fell into the deep, dark, bottomless pit of BUY ALL THE NAIL APPLIERS. Now? I’ve found this little tunnel that’s led me into another pit: BUY ALL THE EYE APPLIERS!
My darlings, I am absolutely smitten with Avi-Glam’s eyes. I’ve been fatpacking them ever since I discovered them, and I was thrilled to be accepted as a blogger for Avi-Glam. I’m kicking off with these stunning Vivid eyes, shown here in the Natural shade. I’m a sucker for greens and blues, and when they come together in this lovely a combination I don’t even have to choose.
That’s one happy avatar, I can tell ya. Best of all? You can go heterochromic with these eyes. The HUD (shown below in fatpack form) gives you options to colour each eye individually, so you can be as Bowie as you please.
The eyes come with options for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, and a pair of mesh eyes are included for those who don’t have a mesh head. Those last ones work with the regular Avi-Glam HUD, which also allows you to resize and move the eyes around. Options for all; this pleases me!
The necklace is a gift for members of the L’Homme Magazine SL Readers Group, from RealEvil Industries. The group is free to join, and if you check out the 3rd anniversary issue of L’Homme you’ll find links to seventeen fantastic gifts, so it’s worth the group slot.
I’ve been really loving CDC Creations’ facial hair appliers of late. This one is the #46 tintable one for Catwa heads. (And guys, if you’re having trouble tinting your Catwa facial hair, I’ll give you a tip: tint both the beard layer and the lipstick layer, because if the hair goes close to your mouth (as in a ‘tache) that’s the layer it’ll be on.)
OK, let’s pull out, because Gild GILD GILD. My fucking god, have I spent a few quid at Gild’s store in recent weeks. This one-shouldered tank is one of many purchases that have shrunk my wallet, and it contains fits for Signature, Slink, and TMP.
Tattoo by DAPPA, with a bit of trickery thanks to the options on the Slink HUD. I still wish it were possible to have one hand tattooed and not the other, but I clicked on just the hands and the right arm for this. There are also tats on the chest, but those don’t show because I’ve not enabled that layer on the Slink HUD. All I needed was a bracelet set to cover the join of the tattoo on my left hand, and these from Swallow (another gift for L’Homme readers!) fit the bill perfectly.
The jeans are by Gabriel for this month’s Mens Department. They have rolled cuffs, so they play nicely with boots, although… I don’t have a pic. Why? Um, well I was a derp and didn’t realise that the only full-length shot that I took didn’t show the tattoo applier on Skell’s right hand. So yeah; use your imagination, I guess? :p
