Somebody say cookies?

Greedy, greedy, greedy. She couldn't help it.
Working in the snack cabin all day, she was surrounded by delicious morsels from opening to close. Hers was no ordinary kiosk, everything they stocked was home made, delivered fresh each morning, or throughout the day as her group of bakers and makers arrived, gingham swaddled trays in hand. Business woman as she was, the cookies fascinated her at the moment, even more than the profits which could be made from them. A new baker had brought them in such a variety of flavours, each tasting so good she had to add them to her collection. One day strawberry would be her absolute favourite, the next chocolate, the next cherry. Today was all about lime. The crumble of biscuit, the smoothness of the icing. If her customers weren't quick, soon there would be none left.

Newness! Newness all round. I finally got mesh mouthed, with a Loud Mouth, and have been playing around with various skins and appliers. Some seem easier to match up than others, on low graphics (my usual state for RP etc) some just won't work for me, the difference in texture from skin to applier is too great, and I just looked weird. Combinations like this - some have improved with higher graphics settings, some not - so I will continue to fiddle with those. Other skin combos look good with the Loud Mouth even on low graphics - the pics above were taken on ultra of course, but I'm sat by by fireside now in the lowest of settings and I still look normal!

A world of watercolour

Mei 4 Mei had come down to the water to witness the illusion which took place just once each decade.
Mei 3
Few believed such things were possible, no one who had never seen it could put any stock in the tales. Those who had been raised on stories of its existence, to them it was a wild dream, a fairytale of childhood, not something to search out as a truth. Mei had more faith in the tales she grew up loving than others. Ever an aesthete she had always liked to believe the stories, the words of which wove into such dreams there were days she had cried on waking for the loss of them.
Mei 2
Mei believed in dreams, in stories, in the words she had been given by parent and grandparent. She went down to the water, stepping into its cool embrace as the moon rose. Smooth flowing water grew in substance as the world faded away. The transparency through which the stones of the lake bed showed clearly now darkened, through sepia to the blackest of inks. Looking up, individual colour had drained from the world, replaced by delicate washes and brushstrokes. All had become art, as she had known it would. Now she had her own tale to tell, to pass down word of all she had seen to her own kith and kin. 

As sad as it is that the Skin Fair is over, many of the exclusives are now available in the creators own stores. Mei Lei is one such beautiful creation from DS'Elles. Shown here in 'Medium' tone, one of five available, each skin comes with five brow options. No brow, blonde, red, brown and black. Included are three tattoo options for freckles, cleavage, eye liner, eye shadow, lips and a hairbase.
The Mei Lei shape is available separately from DS'Elles, as are SLink Appliers for Hands and Feet, SLink Physique, Loud Mouth, Maitreya, and Sweetlips.

Plastik Men @ The Skin Fair 2015

In the darkness of the town the foghorn echoed across the port, the only sound of safety any could expect to hear at this hour. All other sounds were illicit; from the scratching of roaches and squeaking of rats in the walls, to the muffled footsteps, muted moans and snicker of blade coming from the depths of each alley.
Janus lingered here, and other sordid spots like it, each night. The heart of darkness was all he could offer at this hour, bringing a depth of shadow where it was needed, for tasks impossible, or improbable, to complete in the light. He cast no judgement, brought no crime into being. All he enabled, would be uncovered, when the time came.
Male 1 2Male 2
Janus was a man of two faces, two sides of the same coin. Just as he brought darkness at times to all places, so he also brought light. Light didn't always mean sunshine, didn't always mean happiness, it meant sight and sight could uncover terrible things. Beauty was terrible, it could wound more terribly than hate.
Male 2 2
He would weather the changes he brought, feeling them as keenly as any he affected.

As promised - though a little later than anticipated (forgot to upload the images before going away for the weekend) the Male Immortalia Skins from The Plastik exclusive to the Skin Fair 2015!

As with the females, there are twenty tones to choose from, the male skin comes with appliers for SLink hands and feet, toenails and fingernails. Just as generous for the boys, there are eighteen tattoo layer options for body shading and make-up, and eight brow options included.
