Celebrity Skin

Meet Cooper, the  newest addition to the Belleza skin line!  A male skin, that’s right, and one the guys can get excited about and the ladies can drool over.  Cooper is a versatile skin, the aspect I love most about it, you can be blond OR brunette, which is not always possible.  In fact, I can’t think of a skin I have been able to do that with, which did not have such a drastic difference in brows and facial hair to the blond hair.

Mrs. Raynier is going to be like, what the heck is goin’ on with my Cajun!  Who this blond dude?  Well cherie, it’s Cooper and he’s a rugged mix of city and country, bad boy and shy guy, he’s got a great body and facial features and a great new skin for the gents to try on over at this round of FAIR!

A few more things I really love about this skin, the nose is really well done, it has great definition and realism.  The very light dusting of stubble on the head made it easy to go blond or black and the lips are a nice full form with great coloring.  Too often we see skins with a chapped lip look, it’s very unappealing to me and this is not the case with Cooper.  Additionally, check out the pecs!  Head on over to FAIR (hosted by CHIC Management) opens on Saturday, November 17th at 4pm!

Just a note, I did not engage shadows or edit the images other than put them in this frame so you can see the raw shots of how the skin looks.  I used lighting from Strawberry Singh, Original, other wind-light settings may look different.  A good go to is CalWL, and of course always demo the skin so that you can see how it actually looks on you.  Have a great weekend!

FAIR-We Will Stand Tall And Face It All,Together

FAIR is going strong and so is this eventacular month of October!  It is finally cooling down in Southern California, which is divine considering just last week we were in the double digits.

It is one of those days where waking up to cloudy skies and the sun peeking through makes for a lush ambient lighting that I wanted to recreate for this image.

I am wearing the Ryan skin, offered by Tableau Vivant for FAIR.  It is a nice medium tone that can be used by quite a different array of styles.  Make sure you demo it as I used a windlight heavy situation for this photograph and the tone will likely look different on your actual avatar.

The bed is a collaboration from Art Dummy and flowey and it is so lovely and clean, simple and fresh, you do not want to get out of it!

Gabriella’s hair is Reema from Alice Project for FAIR.  I like the bangs they add a softness to the style that is beautifully feminine.

We really love the nordari weathered afternoon shelf/cabinet unit.  The colors are fun and very Autumn-like.

Our morning coffee is a perfect What Next blend of crisp, full bodied and absolutely original flavor, the Rise & Shine coffee tray has it all, even the mail!

I hope you are having a great week and that you get time this weekend to peruse what FAIR has to offer you.

FAIR: A Monthly Event Brought To You By Chic Management

FAIR

From the official website:

On September 22nd CHIC Management will open the doors to its new monthly event. The event will focus on a theme of time, each designer being inspired by one of the 24 hours in a day. There will be resident brands (who will alternate each month) and one cycle guest spots which are available to apply for (click here).

CHIC is re-introducing its Fair Pricing Policy (hence the name of the event!) which encourages designers not to reduce the prices of their products in the event, and to ask for a price that they think is fair considering how much work they put into the item. Designers gridwide have often said they feel they have to participate in discount events because they bring big audiences, we are attempting to provide an event lots of you will want to attend without designers having to price themselves out of a job.

So no discount? No worries! We will be working with some of the hottest brands in SL (some of the guests booked for future months will knock your socks off!) to bring you high quality items, and we believe that they will be worth paying full price for if you love them as much as we do!

After September the event will open on the 3rd Saturday of each month.Each month we will try to include clothing, poses, mens products, skins, hair, furnishings, jewelry and hopefully one day shoes too, so that there is a broad range of product types.

The location of this event will be published on the 22nd at 4pm, here, and through our subscriber group and in our inworld “FAIR.” group.
