Carissa is a Lazy Bitch! *lulz*

leave a comment »

So I keep putting these outfits together, taking snaps, running them through Photoshop and then posting them on Flickr. I’ve been brushing off the whole blogging step (which is kind of the only reason I even do the whole “put look together, snap pic, photoshop, flickr” routine).

You probably already have purchased this amazing curve hugging, mesh-magic tube dress from *BooM* and if you haven’t…Go NOW! There are so many color options and another dress design without the lace inset. (Yeah, I know how long this has been out, I’m that freakin’ lax in my blogging on Cari!)

I’m still wearing this look in world, so at least I can do full credits. Now that the new Maitreya sunhat/hair combo was released, I wished I’d had that when I snapped this pic. I *did* blog the faboo hat/hair over on my alt, Baby Mixemup.

Game of Thrones

with one comment

I’m a HUGE Game of Thrones fangirl. Currently almost finished with the 5th book and I get all bouncy when it’s time to watch the HBO series. When Boot told me that Boystown was hosting a Game of Thrones theme for their Saturday SET event, I knew EXACTLY which characters we would dress as. Remarkably, my Khaleesi look came together very quickly, but Boot’s Khal Drogo wasn’t fulfilled until quite a bit of hunting.

Red Carpet

Continuing my mesh obsession, I saw this dress and it reminded me of Jennifer Lopez. It sat in my inventory for a few weeks and when I finally logged in Cari again, I decided to see how it fit.
(By the way, has anyone noticed that with mesh we have introduced the RL shopping dilemma of trying on clothes for fit in SL) I had to tweak my bewbs a bit but I was very pleased with the dress’s “hot factor” and knew it must be blogged.

Earrings: Mandala Lotus Earrings Black
Dress: Darla long summer dress white by Maai

. ILLUSORY . Opening this Weekend!

leave a comment »

another working title was “The skin we’ve all been chomping at the bit for.”

I’m talking about the skin that many of us have been checking our ATOMIC notices daily for any word of the official release. Ivy Graves teased us with the gorgeous November group gift of .ILLUSORY. skin, that had some of us, especially fellow .ILLUSORY. fangirl, Ashia Edwyn who was photoshopping out the warpaint, anxiously waiting for more. (holy run on sentence batman!)

Thankfully, Ivy gave us a sneak preview of the new skin tones, with a teaser pre-release this month. I was expecting the same ATOMIC skin tones from the previous lines, and I was pleasantly surprised. The new broader range of six skin tones is a completely new skin brand, and while you may recognize some features like the lips, nose and eyebrows from various ATOMIC faces, . ILLUSORY . has been completely reworked. For me, it’s like Ivy took all the best features of her skins and melded them into one super skin. Then she added the most adorable overbite EVAR! I’ve shied away from the toothy lip craze that has cropped up in the past year (honestly because I couldn’t find a “bucky” skin that I was comfortable with…what’s up doc?) The teeth photoshopped onto the . ILLUSORY . lips are subtle. I lubs ❤

Enough babbling..onto pics. Then details about how you can get your hands on these goodies.

Ivy snuck me the Light and Warmth skin tones in two makeup packs.

Illusory skins will be set up alot like Atomic. They will be sold as individual makeups, each makeup with a dark and light brow option and freckles (4 skins)  Buyers will also have the option to buy the set (4 makeups / 16 skins) at a discounted price. In addition to the skins, also includes 4 brow shapers (Flat, Shaped, Pointed, and Arched) to help create the buyers desired brow shape.

Shown here, the Light skin in the Winter makeup options. (the same rosy checks and winter kissed nose I fell in love with earlier this month)
ILLUSORY eyes and Winter Makeups

And below, the Warmth tone in the Stained makeup options.
ILLUSORY Eyes and Stained Makeups
(I know right? I told you the teeth were ADORABLE and subtle!)

If you like the eyes used in the post photos. You can find those at the . ILLUSORY . body shop. Also available, cleavage options ranging from A to C cup.

*blushes as you watch muh bewbs while I channel Pamela Anderson*

For further details, join the . ILLUSORY . Update Group in world. It’s free to join for a limited time and Ivy will be sending out a notice with a landmark to the new store this weekend when it opens.

TikTok Heather skin feature

leave a comment »

When Miah McAuley dropped her newest TikTok skin creation, named Heather, I was excited to take a look at it.

I feel in love with the gorgeous makeups, but my personal shape wasn’t really working with the facial features as much as the skin deserved. So after playing a little slider roulette, the newest addition to the Silhouette shape line emerged as one that really worked for featuring the skin.

The need to knows:

  • Heather is available in 4 skin tones (fair, medium, nougat, and mocha)
  • There are 10 makeups
  • Each makeup includes cleavage and black hair base options (I really wish there were more eyebrow color options)

Teleport to TikTok for the Skin: Heather

Teleport to Silhouette for the Shape: Milla

Audri skins and Lingerie from Hucci

with 3 comments

As promised in my last post I’ve finally found the time to properly feature the newest line of skins from ATOMIC – Audri and I’ve paired it with the amazing new Fishnet Bra and Panty set from HUCCI.


Available in six new makeups, with the unique flair and interesting color combination we’ve all come to expect from ATOMIC skins. Ivy has brought back the lip color technique used in the Faith skins, a solid upper lip and graduated fading of color in the lower lipgloss. Each makeup is also packaged with a nude/natural matte lip and a freckle option.

Notice I’ve included a photo especially for those in SL who just can’t keep their mouths shut. (you know who you are)
Rest assured the Audri skins boast a tongue and lovely set of teeth.

And while we’re on the subject of those who get all up in arms because they expect the watermark overlay on their demo skins to be seamless…

The rest of us, who don’t make a habit of wearing demo skins out in public can sleep peacefully knowing that the legs on Audri, under the demo layer, are flawless. *smiles sweetly*

The shape used for this feature is a new release at Silhouette named Adrian. You can get it HERE

And NOW!! NAKED PIXELS!!! wooooo
