It’s that time of year again – Skin Fair 2016 is nearly here! I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to stalk – I mean, look around the sim during setup, which has enabled me to look at all the items designers are putting out and put together a little ‘Skin Fair Finds’ for you – of course, focusing on mesh bodies and mesh head appliers!
Now this post got too crazy long, so I’ve decided to make a male and a female post 🙂 Next up – Favourites for men, including the new Male LOGO head Ethan and the new Genesis Labs male head Marco 🙂
For now though, one thing that strikes me this year is just how different it is to last year’s Fair – not only in layout, but last year we were seeing appliers become a little more mainstream – but it was still not overly common for designers to have them in their booths. This year, well the world has changed. Mesh Bodies and Mesh Heads are everywhere, and that’s reflected in the offerings you’ll find at the Fair! Don’t panic though – if you’re a non mesh head user, there is still A LOT here for you 🙂
So, let’s get into what I’ve found – keep in mind that there are two sims jam packed of awesomeness at the Fair, so I couldn’t include everything or we’d be here all year (and beyond), but here are some faves so far, including of course the Anne skin for LOGO heads by Izzie’s (pictured above), which is simply gorgeous!
I was really excited to see Grace ‘ageless beauty’ skin appliers for Lelutka mesh head – not only are the skins gorgeous, but they include 3 ‘aged’ skin types, which designed to give a more mature look, which is something lacking in SL for sure.
I’m wearking Lelutka Stella Mesh Head, Kasimire hair by Truth Hair, Grace skin (lelutka applier) by YS&YS (Available at the Skin Fair from 11th March 2016) and YS&YS Maitreya body applier (available in their mainstore), top worn is Selena by Blueberry.
Belleza have released a lelutka applier for the Skin Fair, and wow does she change the feel of my Lelutka Stella head. She looks so much softer somehow, even when eating a candy cigarette!
Mesh Body – Isis by Belleza, Mesh Head – Stella by Lelutka, Skin – Julia by Belleza (Available at Skin Fair) – Lelutka applier, Hair – Juliet 02 by Mina Hair (Available at TLC), Top – Lucie Shirt by Just Because (Available at FaMESHed) – Includes Belleza (all), Maitreya & Slink sizes, Props – Candy Cigs by The Sugar Garden (Available at the Arcade – GATCHA)
I find it relatively difficult to find Genesis Labs appliers, and I was really excited to see Lure’s offerings this year offer exactly that. The skins are sold in packs and include a tonne of appliers for both mesh bodies and mesh heads (such as Genesis Labs, Omega heads, Catwa and TMP!
As many of you know, Deetalez is one of my favourite skin creators, and Steffi has gone above and beyond for the Skin Fair, including new exclusive skins for LOGO, Lelutka and Catwa!! I particularly love the Kanita skin and the more oriental feel she has to her,
eBody’s exclusive – Flip someone the bird!
HAIRBASES (no it’s not a brand, but I get asked about these a LOT).
There are some great hairbases at the Fair, and AviCandy is also releasing some punk hair bases at Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly this month! Starts on the 10th!
At the Skin Fair, you can find hairbases for Genesis Labs at Kokolores, and hairbases for Catwa at Just Magnetized, plus hair bases for LOGO at Izzie’s!!
Well, that’s it for this post – stay tuned MAddicts!
