Skin Fair 2015 - YumYums Hope Equinox

Down on the farm, everything was peaceful in the dusk at the end of a long day. The sun held warmth in its rays, for the first time since the winter. Grass bleached by months of cold crackled dryly under her feet, frost still clinging in tiny shards where shadows lingered. Steam rose in wisps from the crooked slats of the fence.
The old tyre swing moved in the gentle breeze like a metronome, marking time as the minutes passed. She had worked all day, there were endless jobs to be done while the earth slept, preparations to be made for the rebirth of spring. Spring, the hope promised to the world, a blessing fulfilled each year was marked with suitable festivity. As the season finally turned, and the equinox approached, the night of celebration and hope was at hand, it was time to get ready, it was time to dance!

Skin Fair 2015 is here! 
The Skin Fair 2015 is presented by: Pale Girl Productions & Essences and runs from Friday 13th to Sunday, 29th March.
I have been bubbling over with excitement about this for about a week now. The event is as amazing as ever. TWO sims of stores, showcasing exclusive and outstanding designs from Second Life's best creators. You can expect a number of blog posts as I rave about the goodies on offer!
As this blog is mainly PG... you can see more of each skin covered on my Flickr account, accessible by clicking on any of the images above.
There is a script limit on the sims to ensure the shopping experience is as lag free as possible. 
Here's your limos!

Featured here is the .{yumyums}. {Honey} Hope [Ginger Brow] Cleavage.

This skin is one of five tones available in this beautiful new skin from YumYums. You can try Cocoa, Creame, Honey, Latte and Porecelain. Each skin comes with an epic HUD for just about every applier you can shake a stick at, here I've just made use of the SLink Hands and Feet - the HUD also caters for Lola's, Phat/Cuteass, The Mesh Project, Maitreya, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, PXL, Baby Bump and Soul Kissers.

Each skin comes with a fantastic array of options - with and without cleavage for black, blonde, brown, ginger and no brow.

There's an Alpha layer to remove system eyelashes, and a myriad tattoo layers for freckles, brows and blush.
The third picture above shows .{yumyums}. Freckles {Dark} - included with the skin, and 
.{yumyums}. {Honey} Lip Pack#2 {Ruby}. 

The lip packs are available separately from YumYums at the Skin Fair and work well tonally with the Hope skins in all their shades. Lip Pack 2 contains 12 shades.

Remember you can see a lot more of this beautiful skin on Flickr!

Last Days of Fantasy Gacha Carnival - Lotus Dawn

The delicate pink buds were slumbering in peace… but one, especially if „one” was a Lotus Nymph, could perceive a soft, it-is-just-there stirring among the silky petals and gently arching stems. Nymph and flowers sensed in unison that something was going to happen, and soon… Dawn, the sunrise, the first warm rays of light, the beginning of a new day, growth and flourishing. The Nymph caressed the nearest lotus bud, and the bud caressed her back… then they both turned, in happy anticipation, towards the golden orb slowly rising in the East.
The soft pearly white skin by Fallen Gods is one of the rare gacha prizes at the Fantasy Gatcha Carnival. What makes it even more precious is the fact that Alia Baroque and Charlie of Soul have recently started collaborating on making their lovely creations compatible, so from now on the amazing Fallen Gods skins are going to have an applier for Uni ears! And, as we all know, Uni ears are the absolute dream of fantasy creatures in SL, be it Elf, Drow, or Mer... proudly strutting an FGI skin. :)
The final shopping day at the FGC is the 15th of March, so you still have a few days to visit the machines and tempt your fortune… maybe they’re going to be gracious with you as a farewell gesture.

Into the Forest : We Love RolePlay - March 2015

In the middle of the forest two hearts beat as one. This was their way, and the way it had always been.
Their way of life had come under threat before. Centuries earlier strangers had come, driving into their coastline, setting their trees screaming with axe and saw, churning and biting the land in an attempt to render it like the one they had left. The land rebelled, fought back with spiny plants, biting insects, poisonous frogs. The strangers were put off, the scars they left lasted decades.
2 They had come again, these strangers, this time from sea, land and sky. The people of the forest were few, but fierce. They would join their surroundings, sliding easily through shadow and dappled sunlight. The strangers would not see them coming, footsteps masked by soft calls of bird and beast. River and land working with them, their way of life would survive.
