Skin Fair 2015: Glam Affair

In Events, Fashion, Home and Garden by Eliza

Aida Ewing’s complexions are some of my favorite in SL. Depending on the individual avatar they are skins that can look both very young or more adult. And since Aida is always right on top of getting appliers out for whatever new mesh body part is out there, we never have to worry about whether our skin is going to match our body. Katra continues Aida’s tradition of high-quality skins, and includes a few different eyebrow and nose options, Glam Affair can be found on sim 2 at Skin Fair.

I happened to be listening to Elgar’s Enigma Variations as … Read more at the source.

Skin Fair 2015, et al.: Otherskin

In Events, Fashion, Home and Garden by Eliza

Being an avid science fiction and fantasy reader, I love seeing the fantasy skins that creators come up with in SL. I also confess to a desire for more fantasy avatars in SL…it would be great to see more alien faces and body structures. Kadaj Yoshikawa of Harshlands has made a start with his beautifully crafted Drake. Although not a skin or an avatar, the drake was essential to my mood as I took these photos today.

Skin Fair 2015: !Imabee

In Events, Fashion, Home and Garden by Eliza

Today’s skin is another that edges on the very realistic-looking, with a fresh, young complexion. In fact one of my students looks remarkably like this. Ah, youth.  Imogen  is my first skin from Imabee, but I think it will not be my last. Imabee can be found on Sim 2 at Skin Fair.

Skin Fair 2015: Lara Hurley

In Events, Fashion, Home and Garden by Eliza

One of my downfalls as a blogger is that I get lazy with skins. I tend to find one that I like and stick with it for awhile. Skin Fair makes me get a look at what is new out there, and also reintroduces me to skin makers like Lara Hurley, who has been putting out quality skins for years. Elea adds to the collection, and to me is one of the most realistic-looking skins I have seen in a long time. Lara Hurley can be found on Skin Fair Sim 2.

Skin Fair 2015-Nar Mattaru

In Events, Fashion, Home and Garden by Eliza

Jade Glazner is a creator who is new to me, and it is always exciting to find new, quality skin makers. Skin Fair is wonderful for that very reason. Jade has released Kyrin for Skin Fair this year, and I am impressed with the creamy highlights and smooth texture of this skin. There are also eyebrow and lipstick options available…I am wearing the lipstick in light red. I decided not to go with the eyeshadow for this photo so that the skin is more fully visible. I haven’t wanted to take it off since I put it on…so I will … Read more at the source.
