SLink Physique; I'm Never Going To Let You Go (1)

SLink Physique; I'm Never Going To Let You Go (2)

SLink Physique; I'm Never Going To Let You Go (3)

SLink Physique; I'm Never Going To Let You Go (4)

Hallelujah (cute Shrek take) Thank you Siddean!! I am so seriously excited that SLink has finally released the long awaited Physique Mesh Body. Yes it is a banner week in Second Life, as all woman avatars are in ecstatic SLinkdom yes!!! Now I know most of us were worried that we were going to have to forgo our individuality in way of losing our face, but guess what we were all wrong! Siddean Munro from SLink has not only produced a mesh body that works with your Visage Mesh Heads and your very own favorite sliders, it also works with your own shape! There is an alpha to cover your body with but you keep your head lol. haha sounds a bit macabre, I always wonder what one must think when they have no idea what SL is all about and they land on one of our blogs.

So here is the gist……….The mesh one size fit’s all Physique Body is simply fabulous to work with, no more hours upon hours of liquidation in photo shop and that is something that will cut back a huge amount of time for us that do use PS.

So you go buy SLinks’ Physique and what do you get? Slink Physique Mesh Figure V1 – this is the actual mesh body. Wear that and the Physique Physics Layer…..for that extra added bounce 😉 Then you put on one of two body alpha layers, one is for use with the Visage Head and the other is used for your sl default (your own) head.

Then there are six (Anise, Barley, Caroway, Cinnamon, Harissa & Saffron) bags to unpack – these are skins and shapes with a brow shape and mesh lashes in each tone. Yes that means you get a wonderful skin that is amazing all on its own, Then you need to attach or add the base skin applier hud and choose the tone you want to wear…….then the magic happens click a tone and your whole body, even your SLink Hands and Feet change.

Now you are ready for the SLink Physique Alpha & Clothing Hud, this is a replacement for all alphas for any mesh clothing, you can click on all the zones or just the individual parts you need to disappear when wearing mesh clothing. You will notice you are wearing a pretty little bra and underwear set, you can take that off by clicking on the Underwear part of the hud. Or attach the Underwear Hud and you can change the colors 🙂

You still need to wear your SLink Mesh AvEnhance Hands and Feet in XS (you can change the size by sliders, but for them to line up correctly you must wear the xs hands & feet), but you wont have to wear your individual appliers for those as they change when you use the full body applier.

If you have any problems please visit the SLink Page Here and that should answer many of the issues if you happen to miss a step or two. However if that doesn’t help join in on the fun in the VIP SLink Group, remember there aren’t any  dumb questions and the group is fabulous at helping out.

Now onto what I am wearing. As soon as I put on my Physique I ran over to AE Skins. I happened to bump into Sachi Vixen, owner of AE and co-creator of the Physique Base Skins and oh my goodness………she is just beautiful! We got to talking while I was trying on her demos, in photo shop and reading the SLink webpage (I love meeting people who are so understanding about being afk like me lol) and nabbing her all new Physique Body Appliers, and she is amazing to chat with as well. She has one of the most drop dead gorgeous avatars I have seen in world to date!

So when you are comfortable with your brand new SLink Physique Mesh body, stop by AE Skins and try on the fabulous Genesis Line, Sachi has out for the Visage Heads, there are now SLink Physique Appliers for the Genisis Line and nab the Physique Appliers for all the Skin lines as well. Oh but do not forget to grab some phenomenal Rose Popcorn Lingerie, these are available in regular appliers AND Physique versions as well. She also has some terribly cute PJ Physique Appliers out for free gift. I adore AE’s Stockings and Gloves as well. It’s almost a one stop shop as you can walk across to One Bad Pixel and grab some beautiful clothing too!

All my photos in this post are not processed, with the exception of the last one and that is just a few filters for effect. Besides Physique being every bit as beautiful as any SLink product, it is amazing not to have to spend hours on liquidation and clone brush and smudge and……..need I go on? lol I know I am only waiting on two more of my favorite skin creators to come out with the Full Body Physique Appliers and I am set! I wont ever go back, once you go SLink there is no other way!

I think I remembered everything but ………………the most fantastic Mesh Red Dress, but I will leave that up to you to find when you buy the fabulous SLink Physique Mesh Body Package hehe

Again if you have any problems, you can go to the SLink Physique Customer Documentation or join the inworld group, as a member you receive a 10% discount on all items bought at SLink while wearing your group tag, and you can also ask all of your questions in group chat. I can foresee a future with every skin store having these appliers up on their walls lol!  AE Skins, Izzie’s, DeeTaLeZ and Glam Affair already have their Physique Appliers available!

 Ok I am off for a bit for rl, but I have more coming up, until then I will certainly see you soonish! But remember SLinkdom is waiting for you 😉

Summer Nights

Summer Nights

Yay! Hair Fair 2014 is on it’s way!!! I am so excited, 2 weeks of yummy brand new styles from the grids most amazing designers…….I get such a warm and mushy feeling when Hair Fair is near! I am wearing my favorite hair of all, this is Nanda from Mina and she is the softest side braid I own. Whenever I wear this style I turn into a romantic, and what’s not more romantic than a summer night? This is my first entry into the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest………..but I will let you read on 🙂

We are about to begin the Official Hair Fair Photo Contest for Hair Fair 2014. The contest starts on the 9th of June and ends on the 23rd of June. You can upload up to 8 entries. Each and every store listed below is awarding prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners (that is a huge prize pool!) so tell all your friends, start taking wonderful pictures and show us how you can best show off your hair.

Theme:

This years theme is *Music*. Be as creative as you like, feel free to include other people in your shots.

This years contest will run from the 9th – 23rd of June 2014

*No Nudity or sexually suggestive images, this is a charity event to raise money for Children. Naked/revealing photos that the committee deem inappropriate will not be accepted. The committee’s say on this is final.

Be creative, but remember we are looking for pictures that focus on the hair and you.

New Photos Only

Photos submitted to this pool must be new photos. Photos older than the start of the contest will not qualify. Photos used for other contests, memes, blog posts or promotions will not be accepted — if they are accepted into the pool but we find out that they are/were used for something else they will be removed. If you want to blog your entry, that is allowed — as long as it is a blog post explaining that it is your entry into the  Hair Fair 2014 Photo Contest

Editing

Feel free to enhance your shot in the photo editing software of choice. As you do, please remove any vendors or store logos that may be in the image. Just remember this isn’t an advertisement but a tribute to hair that you love. Also be aware that we wont be judging your photos on how little or much you know of PS or GIMP, rather the feel of the picture and the capture itself. Don’t get too carried away, though; we want to be able see the hair!

Only backgrounds from Second Life, or created in photoshop or an editing program are allowed. No RL images to be used in or as your photos, such as morphing or locations.

 Text

The text can only be lyrics to a song – in part or whole, and NO Sexually Explicit, Degrading, Racist or Hate Speech song lyrics allowed. This is a Charity Event for a Childrens’ Charity, so anything found to be unacceptable will not be approved.

While text is allowed, still remember that this is a photo contest, and we want to be able to see your Hair and Avatar clearly. Text should not overwhelm the image.

This year any size is acceptable. Please try and make sure that photos are larger than 512×512 or they will not look as good as you want them to, and may effect judging.

Hi there! I did a post like this for Hair Fair 2012 and I found it really helped me decide on which style to choose from. I remember staying up all night after cruising around the Hair Fair and cramming like I would have back in college lol. This year there was not time to do it earlier……but I have been working on this for a few days now. These are my picks for the 2013 Hair Fair, of course I can always add to this post as well…………just in case I do not have enough hair yes?! 😉

Some of these styles are tried and true designers that I love, some are new to me as well. I have eleven sets in all and ten styles per set……….that is a lot of hair I know, but I am just a tad obsessed……..maybe!? hehe Since the beginning of my sl I have had such a love for all the pretty hairstyles. This has quietly become my passion, ok maybe not so quietly when I post like this.

All in all………….the Hair Fair is my favorite event of the year and I wait eagerly for it’s arrival. I am so happy to have been included in this fabulous event for the last two seasons, and am thankful for being chosen to do so. Hair is such an important asset in how we look at ourselves, in real life as well as second life. But here we are very much fashion oriented and need different styles for different outfits, and Hair Fair is a one stop shop for all the amazing designers to show off their talent.

Now of course the most important aspect of the Hair Fair is that every sale gives a portion of the money collected to Wigs for Kids, I think this is such a wonderful charity. We help children through very hard times and sickness……….there is no better reason than this to shop like crazy. I may buy a lot of hair, but for this amazing charity anything goes.

I will have a cut in this post this year…….so if you are looking for more…………..check that cut. I am showing all these beautiful locks so you can see exactly how these styles will look inworld. I tend to sit up on my platform and commiserate with all my loot (inserts wicked little laugh here), so this is a way to show it all off at once what might take me a few weeks to blog. I hope you enjoy the post! Oh and all credits are located at the bottom.

Have a wonderful night or day and I will be back with more 2013 Hair Fair goodness…………………………………….See you soonish 🙂
