Project FUR Japan - KittyCats

Project FUR Japan - KittyCats 1

I think you all know I am a crazy cat lady already, breeding all my cute KittyCats and not being able to separate from them got me stuck in a house full of kittens I have to cuddle all day long, but as soon as I arrived to the Project FUR Japan sim and I saw was this huge statue of a family of perfect and detailed porcelain cats created by the KittyCats team for this special event I just had to get them.

Project FUR Japan - KittyCats 2

I actually got two different kittens: One Kibo Neko Hope Cat, the one with red ears and collar,  which is for sale at Project FUR Japan with 100% proceeds being donated to JEARS to help save the lost and hurt animals of the Japanese people and one Yuki Neko Courage Cat, which is the one with yellow ears and collar, for sale at the KittyCats main store and whose proceeds will go towards charity for the Japanese People.

These pretties have special eyes, special collars and they also feature a never before shown Porcelain shade.   Each cat comes with Kitty Kibble for one week and are sold as a single cat with a random gender. I got two boys, if anyone has one girl that want to trade , let me know!

Project FUR Japan - Baiastice

My first post showcasing Project FUR Japan designs obviously had to feature the dress my favourite designer created for this amazing event, so here is the beautiful "Nina" from Baiastice, a cute short dress in cream silk with white brocade adorning the top and white tulle under the sculpted skirt perfect for spring.

Project FUR Japan

Project Fur Japan

Project FUR Japan is a new event created to raise funds for Japan Earthquake Animal and Rescue (JEARS)  a coalition of three No-Kill animal welfare organizations who are helping the thousands of animals lost and/or injured during the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Hundreds of SL designers have created special items or placed some of their favourite creations for sale at the Plumhill Sim (graciously donated by LeLutka)  and thanks to all of their 100% donation items and the hard work of dedication of the mind behind this idea, Blazin Aubret and her partner Tristan Careless, over two and a half million lindens have been raised already in only two days.

Project FUR Japan Sim

Two and a half million lindens looks like a huge amount until you arrive to The Sim and see all the awesome items designers have donated for this event. They should have a message pop when you arrive that says: Fair warning: Cuteness overload ahead because believe me that place is full of candy! Not only you can find clothing, hair and shoes from your favourite designers but there are also breedables exclusives from both Ozimals  bunnies and KittyCats kittens, Neko fashion, all kinds of animal accessories, every single kind of pet you can look for (even a rock pet o.O)  skyboxes and houses, gardening stuff and of course more tiny-cute-little-pretty-things than you could ever imagine. That place is full of pandas, enough said!!

Again, like I stated in my first  post about Fashion for Life, I lack the skills to design anything in SL so the only way I can participate is promoting all the wonderful creations available at the event, therefore, for the next few days I will be showcasing here some of my favourites items at Project FUR Japan hoping that you love them as much as I do and run to grab them all before the event is over. We all know how much animals do for us, it's time to give back. If they could ask for help I am sure they would too.

Pose Fair 2011 - Twiggy by Body Talking

Pose Fair 2011 opened yesterday and I can tell you that this place is heaven!!! There are over 100 pose and animation stores, many I didn't even know before and even if I could only take a quick look on this trip I already know I am going to be raiding that place for the rest of the month until I get them all. Sim was so packed yesterday that lag was an absolute killer so I decided to quickly grab only one set and run away to blog about the fair opening so lag is even worse tomorrow ... erm... whatever.

Twiggy 1

To start my review I have chosen this set from Body Talking called Twiggy. I just felt in love with it as soon as Ari posted the pictures on plurk, not only because I absolutely admire Twiggy for all she has done for the fashion industry but also because there is a huge lack of model poses wearing purses or bags and I find myself not wanting to add some accessories to my looks just because I know they will make posing on the runway or taking the pictures even harder than usual.

Twiggy 2

Since I also had my hair cut exactly like this one from  Elikatira on Thursday I decided to make some mix and match outfits with a slight Twiggy inspiration, simple things that I like to wear RL or would like to wear if I had all the clothes I have in SL in my real closet. Do you all dream about that too or is it just me?

I would also like to point out that you don't need to wear a purse or bag to use the poses, some of them work also if you want to show for example a piece of jewelry, another accessory or like I did on the picture below, to pose for high waisted skirts or dresses with prim attachments on waist and hips that are probably the harder to find original poses for.

Twiggy 3

To make it even better all poses on set have the reflected version making it 20 poses total, twenty fabulous and original poses you just need to complete your collection. And now let's start with the credits, this is going to be really painful!

Baiastice New Hair attachments

Rihanna 1

On my last post I already told you Sissy Pessoa from Baiastice had released her new collection of hair attachments and teased you with one of my favourites called Dolly. Today I am going to show you another 9 gorgeous styles available on this very complete collection of sexy ponytails, glamorous updos, rocky crests and stylish cuts. To spicy it up a little bit, since I wrote my first tutorial on how to easily edit your lashes last week, I decided to mix them with different lashes just to show you some more options, hope you enjoy them.

Biastice Hair attachments 1 - Glow Lashes

1. Baiastice Yodi in blonde with Glow Studio Devilicious eyelashes
2. Baiastice Big Crest in black with Glow Studio Innocent eyelashes gentle
3. Baiastice Alec in red with Glow Studio Innocent eyelashes pure

Biastice Hair attachments 2 - Cake Lashes

4. Baiastice Fujiko in black with FNKY Cake Vamp lashes
5. Baiastice Crest in red with FNKY Cake Wing lashes
6. Baiastice Miranda in brown with FNKY Cake Deco lashes

Biastice Hair attachments 3 - Lelutka and CCD lashes

7. Baiastice Billy in brown with LeLutka 2011 lashes
8. Baiastice Great Night in red with CCD Jewels eyelashes
9. Baiastice Rosario in blonde with LeLutka photoshoot eyelashes

If you are worried about the attachments not matching your skin don't fear, hair bases in tattoo form are also available on store in 12 different colours to fit all different tastes. Besides that hairs are also modify, so small tone modifications can be made if your hair color is slightly different than the ones available. For example in the first picture I added pink undertones to the base red peach hair to finish off my Rihanna look.

LOTD - GizzA and Baiastice

Gizza Amorah 1

It is no secret I am a big fan of Gizza designs but honestly,I think Giz Seorn has outdone herself this time. Amorah 2 has not only the realistic textures and good cut we expect from Gizza but also perfectly well finished sculpties and lots of little details that made this piece an instant favourite as soon as I saw it on the store poster.

Gizza Amorah 3

To make my day perfect Sissy Pessoa fromBaiastice also released her new collection of hair attachments and of course there you had me drooling at the posters and getting them all . As always they are all fabulous, from the classy updo's to the fancy ponytails, there are also some punk inspired crests and cuts but to match this unique design I had to chose the truly artistic Dolly that gives the whole look a final mysterious allure.

Red is the color of hope!

Yes, I know the color of hope is actually green, but this beautiful dress from Azul  called Esperanca, despite being red, is a fabulous way to give hope to those in need and raise money for the Red Cross which is scaling up its relief operations to help meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of survivors who are now housed in evacuation centers following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.


Hair is my long time favourite Tiffany from Vanity Hair, nails are number P060 Manish Red from Candy Nails and both earrings and eyelashes come from je suis... by Julia Merosi. I have used the ones with cute red hearts but you can find these four different designs on store and these lashes are the easy to fit ones that you can move prim by prim to fit your eyes. In order to help your lashes fit perfectly I also wrote a small adjusting lashes tutorial for those who may need it, you can read it clicking here.

Pose from Manifeste by July Raymaker.


How to fit your prim eyelashes.

Giela Delpaso Headshot
Cake eyelashes.

Fitting prim lashes seems to be a common problem for a lot of residents out there so I have decided to write a very small lashes tutorial to share with you all. Please understand this is how I do it, I am sure there are many other ways to make prim lashes work and I am also sure there are very good tutorials out there but I have found this way to be very easy because I change my lashes frequently and I lack the patience to edit them to perfection every time I wear them. 

1. Make a copy of your lashes first.
2. Make sure you made a copy of your lashes.
3. Wear a alpha layer to hide SL default lashes. (I use the alpha layers from Sindecade) *
4. Wear a tattoo eye-liner. You can go dramatic at this point but it is very important that you have upper and lower eyelid line so you have a place to position your lashes at. (I use the pack from Baiastice which includes several eyeliners with and without tattoo lashes for a more dramatic final effect).

Lashes - Lelutka
LeLutka photoshoot II lashes natural and with alpha layer and eyeliner.

5. Wear your lashes, get on a pose stand, click ctrl+0 until you are inside your brain and start editing your lashes heavily using edit linked parts. Move them up and down, back and forward but avoid rotating unless you are avid for adventure.
6. When you think they are perfect, zoom around and discover they are still pretty weird. Get back on the posestand and continue editing, zooming and rotating your camera until they are perfect.
7. Read 6 again. Please. Thank you. Remember if you screw up you can always do Ctrl+z do undo last step. In case you screw up badly delete and go back to step 2.
8. There are different kinds of prim lashes. The ones that have an alpha texture plus and the lashes texture  on them, for example LeLutka old version, FNKY Cake or Glow lashes are usually bigger and more dramatic and these lashes are easier to adjust if you use a good eye liner that fills the empty spots they may leave on your eyelids border. Then we have fully sculpted prim eyelashes which I find easier to adjust for beginners because you just need patience to edit prim by prim but they end up looking perfect, examples are je suis..., CCD jewels and the new LeLutka 2011. Choosing one or another depends on your style and personal taste but also on your eye shape, since some lashes will be easier to adjust for certain eyes. 

Lashes - je suis
Je suis lashes 1 and 2 with alpha layer and eyeliner.

9. When you are done remember to manually detach your prim lashes and attach them again, this way you make sure SL saves the prims position and they will be ready next time you want to use them.
10. Enjoy, beautiful detailed perfectly fitted eyelashes. 

Oh la lashes
Baiastice eyeshadow + Baiastice tattoo lashes + Baiastice eyeliner + Je suis... lashes.

I don't care what they say out there, prim lashes when fitted correctly, always look way better than tattooed ones. What I do sometimes is wear both tattoo and prim lashes, which makes your eyes gain depth and every single spot is filled making your eyes look really beautiful. For some dramatic effects I also wear 2 different prim lashes together, attaching one to nose and the other one to mouth.

Also remember that if you wear an eye-shadow without eye-liner on v2.0  you can add a liner layer over it in order to make your lashes fit perfectly, but you need to add that layer AFTER the shadow and not before it, like I did on the picture above.

I hope you have found my first tutorial useful and easy to follow and for those of you who were afraid or scared of using prim lashes before I also hope you will at least give them a try now.

*EDIT 1: Adding a help on how to use Trins Alpha layers.
You need to grab the "Trins Alpha Layer Set Pro" from Sindecade store. First make a copy of the alpha layer given and rename it for example "no lashes" wear it and then right click and choose edit. Once the edition window opens just click on HEAD ALPHA square and choose the alpha texture from your Trins folder called: Alpha Mask - Head 0 (hide eyelashes) yes the square should be black. Save and Exit. Now you have your No lashes alpha layer ready to use whenever you need it.Please remember that if you are already using an alpha layer on, for instance, your boots, you can still right click and select ADD to wear both alpha layers on any v2.0 compatible viewer.

Yes it is not a typo, I am walking a runway again.  Mimmi asked me and I just can't say no to my amorita. I 've been on diet for 2 weeks to fit in this models size clothes and also been working on poses and walks for 4 days because I feel like I am too old to do this again LOL

Our beatiful host this time , since I am walking, will be the beautiful Cheer Gymnast but I will still be providing some cool music for your entertainment.

Date: Saturday, March 19th

P.S. The key to avoid lagging to death and seeing the models grey at any fashion show is arrive early so all the textures load on your computer and you need to charge the less information possible once we start walking on the catwalk, so please come early !!

A few things you should know about Fashion for Life :

Congrats everyone from organization to entertainment and of course designers.

Designers like Aleida Rhode from Alëida who has this beautiful Melanie couture gown in cream along with some other designs, and even skins from her recently released line, all set for sale to benefit the American Cancer Society.
