Guest writer: Jackson Lukas

Hello SoHawtSl readers.. my name is Jackson, and I will be your model and editor for the entry.
My sister has asked me to wear, and review a set of skins, as well
as show my personal favorite skins in second life.
I have chosen three personal, and the one review.
I am not looking to make friends, I am only doing this as a personal favor for my family.
So, here we go..

Top three picks.

Buried, Mother Goose & Belleza

So in these I liked the over all look, so we only did some face shots.

Mens Skins Reviews

Belleza

Belleza - Shawn

Above are the skins I have little to no problems with…
(I wear the Buried skin mainly.)

So that brings us to the one I do not like..
And, to be fair, I have had my sister highlight exactly
what I find.. “wrong” with it..other then the overall appearances.

INAYA Kos - With Highlights

To put it mildly, there was ZERO effort put into this skin.
The seams do NOT match, as clearly shown in the photo.
The color is atrocious.
Also, I have looked closely and it appears that either there were nipples underneath the layer
or maybe they forgot to remove their “practice” nipples, I don’t know what it was but,
there appears to be another layer below the top and it is not matching up.
(another seam issue? i don’t know….)
The face doesn’t do it for me either…
If I was forced to rate this skin.. it would be a 1/10..
the 1 you ask why?
It is a male skin.. we need more male skins.

THIS is how a bod should look:

Skin - BODS

FTW – Buried, Mother Goose & Belleza
Shot Down – Inaya

Sorry Inaya, I suggest sticking with the female skins!

(I scoped many female opinions on the matter of skins.. Inaya just didn’t meet the minimal hawt factor.
There is a very nice “Linden Lab Library” skins in your inventory right now.. just have a peek.)

This has been a guest appearance by Jackson Lukas, happy to help!

Side Note –

Tattoo’s worn through out the entry are from:
Arcavim

The layers come in various transparency styles, also they have demo’s so that you can try them on and
make sure that this is something you would like to have on your bod!
Certainly worth a check!

Also worn through out:

Princess for the Day

Growing up, I absolutely LOVED a movie called, The Little Princess, starring Shirley Temple in 1939.

Now there have been many remakes of this movie however, Shirley was my #1 favorite,
with a close second being the 1995 version with, Liesel Matthews (i think that is the right SP).

There is this amazing line, that always made my heart swell and
made me feel beautiful no matter what was going on in my life at that moment..

Miss Minchin: Don’t tell me you still fancy yourself a princess? Child, look around you! Or better yet, look in the mirror.
Sara Crewe: I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics.
Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us.
Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?

I believe this.. and so should you..
If you father, or mother never told you this..

I AM!

Of course, we can not forget, that in Second Life this is a much easier feeling to “act out”..

Today, I am in a princess mood…

And the best places to go for this..
Is the White Armory.

They pass out gifts once a week, that are made for the most perfect princess… you.

This, was a group gift a few weeks ago, that I just pulled from my inventory, and felt that I should share it..
I am a self conscious princess, lol…. but, you can still see the beauty of the dress…

Every Girl is a Princess -  1

I coupled this with a gorgeous necklace and crown from parts of Princess style dresses by
Ravenlynn Templar (another amazing dress maker, also seen in other postings in this blog).

Every Girl is a Princess -  2

The beautiful skin, is by CandyDoll, and the hair is a current group gift by Lelutka.

The location, is the AMAZING, Botanical Landscaping, Garden an, Straylight.

So very easy to feel like a princess in this setting.

I will leave this entry with a video, fanbased, on the 1995 version of the Little Princess..
the song, is one that is just amazing
(one that reminds me, of everyone that has ever made me feel like I was special,
and I am sure you have ppl like that as well.).. and if you listen close.. there is a clip, with the Audio version, of the quote above.

Enjoy, and remember…

We are all Princesses.
or. princes.

And if no one told you before…
I am now.

Let’s Hear It For The Boy!

Hello dear SL’ers!

I hope that you are having a great Sunday!

Today, as almost a challenge by my friend, Xaphan Hanly, I have decided to do a “male post”..

I have gone to one of my most favorite shops in Second Life for, Male Fashion.. (also with female),
*Conners*, owned by Salah Axel..

I love the textures, and the options..
(jacket, undershirt, shirt etc…)..

This weekend they had a “relocation opening party” event with secret 1L sales.

Of course, I went and raided the shop and also picked up the most adorable Bikini..
well…. that is for another post! lol
We are here to talk about MEN’s fashion and so we shall!!

I took a couple photos of what I came up with from *conners* as well as HOC, and KMadd.

So Hawt Sl - Connors

The skin here, is by Sacred, and this would be the free skin offered by the owner,
Wavie Haller by going over to a barrel and mentioning how you heard of their store.

I like the bad boy look, and all bandaged up this is perfect..

Here is a close up on the face, with my charming model, Amaya Namori.. xoxo hugs chica!

Saturday Cuddle

oooo, even here you can see the small details just in the pants alone, by *conners*.. how it
bunches up in the groin area. (yeah i look there too.)
That is true nature!

Also, I am sportin KMadd hair, Gauge Ears and Plastik Eyes!

Thank you to, Xaphan for this idea…

I hope this gives you guys out there more, ideas on where to shop..
(also if you hurry over to *Connors* you never know what deals you may find,
though I highly suggest this place for all folks, male or female!)..

And here is your links!

Enjoy!

Laq FTW

Good morning SL’er’s and friends!

So, yesterday was full of interesting events…
One of which had me sneaking over to Laq, (skin store in Second Life),
to check out what current demos they have now.

I believe it started with friends and I talking about who has the “best value”
as far as skin packs go in Second Life..

Personally, I think that top three, (IMO), are Laq, Belleza and Dutch Touch

    This is not saying they are the only

GREAT skins in SL.. because, let’s face it..
I am a skin whore (admitting it is half the battle… and shopping for more, is an awesome crutch),
but, I have to say..
Giving MANY options, as well as HB, is most helpful..

Below I have picked one of the best demos in the bunch that I picked up, Mima…

Mima, is a beautiful, soft and gorgeous, Asian skin..
I fell in love with it as soon as I put it on..
I started with the “natural” with a HB..
And it looked amazing on my shape..
So, I ventured to more make ups, and of course…
being me.. Took a dramatic photo, of the demo, and PS’s it to death!!

Here is the outcome:

MY WISH SKIN

THIS.. was a DEMO…

And, I fell in lust, love, and need with this skin..

I wished, and wished and omg, prayed…
and I got it.. (ty Allen), and I decided to use it for
todays blog!

I decided to go total bad girl, grunge, totally hiding the “normal” sweet and innocence of the “asian” girl…

Mixed with Laq, Cobrahive, *Argrace*,
HOC, Sinistyle and Others… lol.. I had fun with this outfit!

What A Bad Girl

All in all I think this outfit is sooo awesome,
I decided to use it as my “default” outfit…

You know what I mean…
When you log into Second Life and your avatar…
Looks like the “old ruth” that SL LOVES to give us..
The one that makes the men into women and the women…
Into scary freaks?

Here is my suggestion…
Find an outfit combo you LOVE..
Then, go into edit appearance…
At the bottom of your edit screen, you will see “make outfit”
or “create outfit”..
Click that..
And click “all boxes”…
Rename the folder to something that will be easy to find.
Click save.

Then, next time you have the “ruthed login“, simply, enable the Advanced menu, go to:
Character, Character tests, test female…
This will revert you to the NEWBIE that you were when you first joined second life…
(men, you do a test male :p)

Then, find your folder, and drag it on to yourself..

BINGO!

All better!!

OK, I hope you enjoyed this post…
I hope it one day helps you!

Enjoy your day.. and maybe, I may have another post alil later today!!

xoxo
