It is always around this time of year that I become more reflective. I start shifting things around the homestead, organizing my desktop, and assessing my avatar for updates. Usually these updates are minor, but I will admit I look drastically different from my rez day on October 5, 2008.
Yes..this is me…fresh off Welcome Island. Well, actually, it is about a week out…by this time I had switched out my eyes to these neon aqua ones and attempted my first “editing” project by lengthening the back of my hair. Of course, I thought I looked pretty good, but it didn’t take long to notice that there were better options to change my look. There have obviously been a multitude of changes in skin and tweaking my shape over the years…but I have always wanted to keep a “Eurasian” look for her. It hasn’t been easy, and there have definitely been some mis-steps with skins, but I think I’ve finally found a skin that compliments the look I have been working toward. The Belleza Aiko (Pale) skin looks just stunning on me!
I have absolutely adored Belleza skin for ages…but kinda gave up on it as an option because it never really fit the look I was trying to achieve. Having said this, the ONLY place I took my husband for skin was Belleza; it is simply flawless on him.
I know Aiko was released a while ago, but, as I said, I had given up on Belleza as a skin option; I don’t think Aiko was around when I stopped trying on the Belleza demos. I am so thrilled that I decided to take a random trip back to see what Tricky Boucher had created lately! The moment I tried the Aiko demo on…I knew I had finally found THE skin for me…THE skin that took over four years to find! It is simply the perfect Asian skin…rendered with a deft and talented hand; crafted with an eye for the true nuances that mark the subtle beauty of ethnic skin. Thank you Mr. Boucher…my husband and I both adore our Belleza skins! <3<3
My outfit today starts with the Amy top and Zoey pants from /erratic/. I can’t effuse enough about how fabulous this shirt and these pants are! The shirt has gorgeous draping…with the front loosely tucked in…the back is untucked but lies wonderfully against the pant. It isn’t easy to wear separate mesh pieces and have them “layer” over each other without issues….but this shirt works! The pants fit like a glove and have a buttery soft texture to them…with attention to even the smallest detail; such as the pull tab and slider on the zippers.
I finished off my look with the gorgeous Sound hair from [e]. Elikatira is having a HUGE retirement sale (HURRY back with your gorgeous newness soon!!). It isn’t easy trying to get into the store right now…but WELL worth it…so RUN!!! My necklace is part of the latest release set, **Attar**, from +:+WTG+:+; found at the new round of Limited Bazaar. My Bracelet is part of the Harvest set from CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELLRY, the Agam ring (no longer available), on my right hand, is from *TWISHEE*, and my adorable Beagle, named Bagel, is part of the Z Bag from ZOOBY’S.
