Wow it’s been a while since I blogged. And even longer since I brought you PROPER info on the stuff in my snaps. So here we go – let’s take a look at Chu’s “kick back and relax” attire last night. It was a sleepy sort of night for me in RL…and I was actually dressed pretty similar to my avi. 99.9999999% of the time, that’s SO not the case.
As usual we’ve got lots of great Marketplace finds, because who doesn’t like catalog shopping? Seriously, Marketplace is like crack. There are also some oldies-but-goodies – unfortunately not likely to be on the grid anymore. And some total steals & deals. Let’s get to it:
Tank Top: Ducknipple, SLX Outfit Baggy (faboo outfit overall!), $195 on Marketplace. Tintable, too! Awesome outfit as an alternative to the usual skin-tight jeans you see.
Sweatpants: ~i~ Laundry Day Sweatpants, OH MY GOD you guys – so worth every penny of the mere $150 this costs on Marketplace. HUD comes with many color combos & patterns. Fit is great. You’ll get so many looks out of these.
Cardigan: M.o.w. Open Cardigan Black, $5 giftie on Marketplace. $5! Do not pass it up! Nice texture on close-up, and while it’s the standard cardi you see from a lot of creators, it’s totally versatile. One of my casual faves.
Hands: Slink casual
Henna hand tattoo: ::KK:: Slink Av. Enhance – Henna Design Hands Tattoo, just $50 on Marketplace. Permanent fixture for me, and so thrilled with the $50 price!
Hand piercing: !TLB – Slink hand piercing, $95 on Marketplace. Love.
Feet: Slink mid-height
Rosary foot tattoo: Twisted Barbie Rosary Foot Tattoo, just $40 on Marketplace. I wear this on all my Slink feet, and at $40 I couldn’t pass it up..
Locket: [Fairy Tale] Locket Pendant in Platinum. I apologize that this one is so old I’m not sure if it’s available anymore, or how much it cost at the time. The photo is retexturable (made that word up!), and right now it’s something sexy.😉
Face piercings: [AdN] LUST, another fabulous complete outfit with so many sexy components – the plugs and piercings are just one part! $99 on Marketplace. Get on it.
Earrings: ~C2X~ Spiral Plug Ear Piercings (unisex), $10 on Marketplace. I wear them so often, and at $10, how could you not?
Ear piercing: AIDORU Ear Piercing 5 (left ear) – another one that may not be available anymore, though AIDORU is still producing awesome piercings.
Mani/Pedi: Sn@tch Natural – Black Tips. Available in store, though as I’m not logged in at the moment, I’m afraid I can’t say the price…but it’s Sn@tch, it’s ALWAYS good value for money.
Bruises: Total body bruises created by me, not available for sale. Though if you’d really like some custom bruises, IM Chuisle Alecto and we’ll talk.
Skin: The Plastik – Ataciara Elven Grey, cleavage option, smudge makeup. This used to be available in-world and on SLMP, but I’m having some trouble finding it. Super duper skin though, I wear it 100% of the time – and it comes with appliers and a HUGE selection of makeup options.
Eyeshadow: HeartCrazy Eyeliner Darkness – this is a larger, more subtle black effect.
Eyeliner: LS Black Eyeliner – just $15 on Marketplace. I wear it to tighten up the look around my lashes when something like the bruise layer lightens the natural liner on the skin.
Neck tattoo: ::Axix:: 5th Chakra Tattoo 1 (unisex), $125 on Marketplace. I was lucky enough to get this in-world cheaper in a gacha, but it’s a default on my avi. Worth every penny. There are several options and I have the full make-up option which extends the whole neck, a stripe up the lip and dramatic cat eyeliner smudge.
Hair: LoQ – Aysha in black…OLD SCHOOL hair! Likely not available anymore. But sometimes you just want a ponytail with a little flex, even though I’ve switched almost entirely to mesh for everything else.
Eyelashes: Gaeline Cosmetics – Felicia mesh eyelashes. $180 on Marketplace. I wear ’em every day.
Eyes: Customeyes mesh eyes with ininite possibilities, literally! $350 on Marketplace. They are my 100% always eyes. (Chu is heterochromatic so a good custom eye option was a must.)
Booby bounce: Obviously not seen in this photo, but FYI, when I’m wearing system shirts like this and especially one that obviously does not use a bra, I like the realism of booby physics. Chu’s boobs are part of her shape and have some gravity to them – I don’t use mesh butts or boobs. So, my go-to physics are a set of 6 layers (for different levels of movement by Fey. An absolute STEAL at $30 on Marketplace for the 6-pack. Perfectly subtle movement (unless you’re using the 6th level, in which case you are really into the jiggle.) In this case I’m wearing level 3 for the braless effect.
Glasses: Last but not least, my favorite pair of black specs from Static Beauty. Full disclosure, these eyeglasses are available in the store I co-own. They were created by my friend Samara Greggan, and are JUST $10! They never let me down, load beautifully, are just the right tint and very realistic…and a whole lot like my RL glasses!
AS ALWAYS, when buying on Marketplace (or anywhere else), try demos.
Happy shopping, and enjoy your cozy night!
