Introducing – The Skyclad Fashionista @ WordPress!

Hey all! Welcome to the brand new, and hopefully improved, Skyclad Fashionista @ WordPress! I previously had a blog that was hosted on the Blogger site, but I’ve decided to migrate all of my content from there to here, for (hopefully) obvious reasons.

This post is a “Sticky” and will remain at the top of my new blog for as long as we both shall live (lol), partially to welcome you wonderful readers, and partially to show off the stats of my old blog, as they currently stand. It was a great 2 years, but sometimes change is good.

Not quite a blogger goddess, but I’ll get there.

♥All of my love, The (One and Only) Skyclad Fashionista.

Happy birthday, wordpress blog, let’s do this thing.

Essenz for 21Shoe has got you covered for summer!

My favourite day of the month, the 21st, is coming up soon, and in the spirit of the warmer weather that’s been slowly creeping its way in, Essenz‘s items for 21Shoe are 2 pairs of sandals!

 
Essenz‘s Tenerife sandals are made for the Slink FLAT feet, as well as Maitreya (which I’m wearing above), and come with a convenient little HUD to change the metal between gold and silver, and the insole/sole of the shoe between black and natural. On the right I’m wearing the Peach version of these sandals, with the natural bottom, and gold metal option, and on the left, I’m wearing purple, with the black bottom, and silver metal!

If you look closely, you’ll notice that I’m wearing AlaskaMetro nail polish on my Maitreya feet and hands! AlaskaMetro recently updated their nail sets to include applier HUDs for not only Slink, but also Maitreya, Omega, and the Eve body… and the best part? Her prices are just as low as ever. The pack I’m wearing is only $L25!

I’ve paired these with a fun sundress, and a pretty dangly necklace, that I bought at this round of The Dressing Room! My dress is available from Third Eye for just $L70 right now at TDR, and my necklace from Glow Studio is the same price

aaaaaaand finally, I’ve topped off my outfit with a new “cheapie” skin from Lumae, and a brand new hair from Doe (formerly Ploom) that’s out at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival (I’ll talk about this a little more in an upcoming post)! The Adore skin from Lumae, with the cute “Tulips” makeup is currently available for just $L75 per tone right now. This skin includes ALL of the options that Lumae‘s normal skins come with, AND all head AND body appliers as well! (That’s a LOT of stuff!)

I’m no angel…

Okay so, Super super quickie post, mainly because I’ve had “bloggers block” the last few days and frankly am at a loss for words… but here are some lovely pics, and item descriptions, and stuff!

I'm no angel..._002

Don’t let the wings fool you, I am certainly no angel. The Dark Fae eyes that I’m wearing above in purple are one of the offerings from Songbird at this month’s horror haute, and probably tipped you off to that. If those beauties didn’t do it, then the Kii horns (in Pinku) from Cubic cherry Kre-ations hopefully clued you in. I love how subtle and small these horns are, and since they’re at the Fantasy Faire, proceeds go to a great cause!

I'm no angel..._001

Speaking of Fantasy Faire, the absolutely gorgeous violet-toned skin I have on is one of 4 skins from Lumae for the event! Each skin set comes with all of the usual options, shapes, appliers, AND 3 pairs of elf (Leevi) ears! I’m wearing the long ones in the photos above, but you can’t see much of them. That’s about all for me for the moment, other than my…

Skin fair spotlight – YumYums / Adored Bodyshop

So, Skin fair comes to an end in a little less than one week, I’ve shown you guys a couple of things here and there, but now I want to devote a whole post each to the designers who were fantastic enough to provide review copies to those who asked!

I’m going to start this week off with YumYums, and Adored Bodyshop. Previously, I showed off YumYums skin fair skin in another post, however, that post disappeared from my blog, and I have yet to see it come back, so, to make up for that, they’ll be first!

Skin fair spotlight - YumYums / Adored Bodyshop_001

I can never say enough good things about YumYums skins, they are always gorgeous, smooth, youthful, and absolutely perfect for my shape. Hope, YumYums offering for the Skin Fair, follows along this trend and is simply stunning. I’m wearing the base skin in the photos above, with Dark freckles on the Left, and completely bare on the right. The full skin pack includes 2 packs of lippies, 6 blushes, dark/med/light freckle options, full body freckles, 3 suggested eyebrow shapers (I’m wearing #1), moles, a system lash hider, and a massive applier HUD that includes: Slink, Lolas, the Azzes, Maitreya, Loud mouth, nyam nyam, PXL, soul kissers, and baby bump

The Hope skin pack also includes 2 lipstick packs chock full of lippies for any occasion. Be aware that these lippies aren’t your standard type, and will only work for this particular skin! (Note that I’ve switched to Loud Mouth‘s brand new Alli 3.0 mouth to show off the lippies) Pack 1 contains 7 soft, mostly sheer colours that feel more like lip balm or stain than lipstick. I absolutely love these for mixing, matching, and layering for different effects.

Lipstick pack 2 includes 12 fun, opaque shades that run the spectrum from end to end. This pack contains more “unnatural” colours, and are great for when you want to spice things up a bit, or add a pop of colour!

Finally, since we’re on the subject of lippies, Adored Bodyshop has out multiple products including a gift lippie in a great dark purple, and 2 different additional packs of lipsticks in brights and darks. I managed to snag the brights, which I’m wearing above, but I love these so much that I plan to go back and get the other pack as well! These lippies have great fun names like “Barbie Bitch”, “Gack”, and “Space invader” and are really bright, saturated colours, perfect for parties, or when you want to draw attention to your luscious lips!

Let’s see how far we’ve come…

So, today a friend of mine brought to my attention the “Monday blog meme” challenge that was posted this past Monday by none other than Miss Strawberry Singh herself. (Berry’s post with all of the info can be found [HERE], my friend’s post is [HERE]!) Even though Monday has come and gone, I wanted to take part in this, so I dug up the very first image I ever posted to flickr from waaaaaay back when I was the Penurious Huntress, not the Skyclad Fashionista, and put it next to a pic I took today, just for funsies.

Let's see how far we've come... _001

Wow

It’s amazing how far I’ve come as a photographer, a blogger, an avatar, and even as a person since then. I’ve been around in SL since 2005 and it has been absolutely amazing watching things grow, change, and evolve… system items turn to prim and then to sculpt and now to mesh.

 My sense of style is definitely similar to way back then, as is my blogging style; descriptive posts detailing what I’m wearing with full credits for everything, however, my photography skills and the quality of the items I choose to blog have come so far that it’s breathtaking… and my face has gained much much more realistic proportions… I’ve learned windlights, depth of field, lighting, posing… really I’ve made a complete overhaul! SL has come so very far, and so have I!

Style Card (Then):
Skin: Heartsick – Enchant – Reverie – Winter’s Kiss
Hair: Sirena – Cody – Reds pack
Lippie: M.O.C.K. Cosmetics – Agua Gloss Lip (Veronique III)

(That’s about all I can recall, I closed that blog ages ago)

Style Card (Now):
Skin: Glam affair – Sia – Europa – 04
Hair: Little bones – Wasted – Ink dipped – group gift!/$L100 to join
Eyes: Song – Chibi eyes
Ears: Mandala – Steking ears
Top: Danika – Hawt 4 Teacher schoolgirl shirt
Pasties: FnH – Ouchie Bandaids – No H8
