Week 17 of 52 Weeks of Color - Electric Lime

I have to admit that electric lime was a little more challenging than what I thought it would be when Luna Jubilee announced the color for this week. Electric lime is an odd mixture of yellow and lime green which not many designers carry in Second Life. Go figure!

I was almost ready to throw in the towel and spew curse words at Luna (not really… she really is too sweet for that) when a beautiful new design from a very talented and beautiful (inside and out) Second Life artist landed in my virtual lap. Lestat Reuven, owner and designer of Siss Boom, created a 52 Weeks of Color combo for this week’s challenge, appropriately titled Electric and Fiction Skin Electric. The dress is one of my favorite styles in Second Life and comes with the option of two different skirts. The first style is a beautiful empire dress with two long flowing skirts, one green and one blue. Each skirt can be worn independently of the other or together; I chose to only wear the green skirt since this is a green week! A shorter mini skirt is also included with your purchase just in case you are looking for a night out on the town! Electric will be displayed in Siss Boom’s new release room for the duration of the Electric Lime Week and is available for L$325.

The second part of Lestat’s 52 Weeks of Color special is the very beautiful limited version of the Fiction Skin. The eyes are definitely a focal point for this skin; the beautiful green eye shadow goes perfectly with the theme color. I really love the eyeliner and lashes as well; they definitely give the skin a more dramatic effect. What better color to pair with green than a shade of red? And, that is exactly the color you will find in the very luscious lips of the Fiction Skin. Highlighting, shading and random moles and freckles are found throughout the skin which, of course, gives the skin a more realistic and natural look. The Fiction Skin Electric will only be available for one week and at a discounted price of L$400; a free demo is also available. Pick this skin up before it is gone forever!

The hair I chose to wear with my gorgeous new outfit is one of the two newly released styles from Truth. It has been a while since I last did a review for Truth hair even though I wear his styles quite often. In my personal opinion, no one in Second Life does long, curly hair like Truth Hawks. His skill and talent puts him so far above many other hair designers in Second Life who are talented in their own right as well. So, what makes his designs so special? Realism! His textures are absolutely stunning, and the flexibility of his prims gives them such a life like quality. The style I’m featuring is titled Whitney; packs are available both in store and on the marketplace for L$250 per pack or L$1,500 per fatpack.

I’ll admit it… I was extremely excited when I logged onto Second Life this morning and saw that there was a new collection at Mon Tissu. This very chic boutique has become one of my favorite shops in Second Life, and I always look forward to new releases. I have always loved Surf Co. shoes; so, when I first learned that its owner would also be a co-designer for Mon Tissu, I was anxious to say the least. The Montsegur Pumps are just one lovely example of why I was so excited. Just like I love quality hair, I can no longer do without quality shoes in Second Life. The sculpts and textures of Mon Tissu are absolutely amazing; a combination of realism and art are blended perfectly together with each design. The newly released pumps are so very feminine; the colors available are perfect for Spring with a variety of pastels and basic colors. Each color is available for L$295 or L$2,000 for a fatpack of eight. Typically, I would not even consider joining a group with a $1,000 membership fee, but I realized early on that I would be purchasing a lot of ‘all color packs’ of shoes. Members of Mon Tissu’s in world group enjoy a 25% discount on ‘all color’ packs which reduces the price of the shoes from L$2,000 to L$1,500. If you purchase an insane amount of shoes like I do, you can see how your savings will quickly add up and easily covers the cost of membership plus more. These shoes really are a must have for Spring!
