Do you bento?

Hey guys! So, If you haven't heard yet, SL is implementing a new system called PROJECT BENTO, which adds bones for fingers, facial movements/sliders, tails, and wings. The default SL viewer with bento support has been out for a while, but the firestorm BETA viewer with the capabilities was just released recently. (For more info, and download links, please join the Phoenix-Firestorm Preview group!). I'm a die-hard firestormer, so I've been holding off on bento-ing myself until the release of the beta viewer, but now that it's here, I grabbed the bento-enabled Kioko head from Akeruka (which is on SALE right now guys, along with all of their bento heads!! Get them while the sale is on), and the Bento-enabled hands from Vista Animations, and have been playing around with them pretty much non-stop!

Do you bento?_001
I am wearing my favourite Pink Fuel skin via the omega/logo applier! I'm thrilled it works so beautifully. I've added omega-compatibility to my head by buying the omega relay for Akeruka [HERE]. The Kioko head comes with blinking options, several open mouth states, the ability to have the mouth move when you talk, lots of skintones, and a whole slew of makeup and freckle options, and more. For the price, it's an absolute steal! I'm using the face shape that's included with the head, but the head WILL respond to all of your shape sliders!!

Do you bento?_002
Extended fingers and a smile! The Vista prohands come with a regular version, a bento version, 4 tester animations that are fun to play with (You can see Strawberry Singh test out all of them in her youtube video [HERE]). It also includes a HUD with tons of skin presets, 4 nail lengths, a skin-tinting thingie, 18 nail polishes, glove and tattoo layer toggles, and a dozen hand poses! Each nail can be polished individually, and your hands can move independently. I'm actually using the poses designed for bento use from Sari-Sari, there's 6 in the pack and they're super cute

Wiggly Fingers~! One thing to note is that these hands ARE still in beta, and one negative that i noticed is that the nails sink into the fingers a little bit in some poses. However, the creator has been really receptive to customer feedback, and all updates are included and FREE. Definitely try the demo to see if these are right for you. These DO fit mesh bodies!

While you're looking at my wiggly fingers, check out my nails! These are new from Dark Passions and are currently available at the Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly event! I am wearing a set from the "Shades of Gray" palette. I've marked the one above with a red box!

Alaskametro rocks my rack!

Hey guys, after realizing my last two posts glitched out and never actually posted, I've been kinda not really inclined to blog lately, BUT, I just wanted to drop a quick post (assuming it doesn't glitch) and let you know about some really sexy stuff at the Rock Your Rack event! Proceeds benefits the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a cause close to my heart.

Alaskametro rocks my rack!_001
Alaskametro's exclusive item, which has a 100% donation is a gorgeous lace bralette which comes in 6 different colours and includes appliers for damn near everything! I'm wearing the peach above, although the windlight on the sim has changed the colour a bit.

Looking De-Luxe!

Hey guys! This month's Luxe Box has just been released and it's gorgeous as always! I'm wearing a few gorgeous pieces from this month's box, as well as Lumae's skin from this round of Genre, and some beautiful nails from Dark Passions for LoveFest! This simple but lovely look basically came together as if by magic, I swear... Everything fell into place the moment I put it on, and now I don't want to change!

Looking De-Luxe!_001

Looking De-Luxe!_003
I'm rounding out my gorgeous mostly monochromatic look with the Reign Ribbon heels from the Luxe Box! These include sizes for Slink (regular and hourglass), Maitreya, and Belleza (all of them!!!), and the pack comes with HUDs that match both Reign colours AND blueberry colours! I seriously don't want to take these off!

Looking De-Luxe!_004
The Showgirls skin from Lumae (for Genre - Burlesque) definitely feels like a throwback to the cheesecake/pinup days, and I absolutely adore it. It comes in tones 4, 5, 6 and 7, and while I DO wish it came a bit lighter (I usually only wear tones 1-3) I think it's fabulous! Lumiya has been incredibly generous and has done each tone as a full pack and included everything that normal packs do, but at just $L100 per tone for the duration of the event, these are an AMAZING steal!
Looking De-Luxe!_002 
 The Key to the Nile nails from Dark Passions for LoveFest add just the perfect touch of gold for this outfit. At LoveFest you can find the full pack of styles in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega for $L100 each, OR pick up the pack of all of them for just $L275!
