2016, STICK IT!

Finally it's New Year's Eve!

20016 seems to have done a number on so many, not just our Celebrities.

To all of you, I wish all the good things for 2017.

• This Hood by AZOURY inspired me to create this photo that I titled "Stick It."
As in 2016 can stick it. Ever see that commercial? It's also a nod to that.
So 2016, STICK IT!
Ember, 


Stick it.

Thoughts on Vista's Bento Hands

Hey, hey!

Well, I 'm a bit late to this Bento party but as I had to get with the program sometime so I figured I'd take you along for the ride.

OK.  First, the viewer. 

I needed to update to be able to see these Bento thingies properly.
If you want to use  OR see Bento items you will wanna update to.

Firestorm Bento Download page ( Choose your OS and GO!)
- http://www.firestormviewer.org/downloads/
Secondlife Bento viewer Download Page - https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/ Pretty sure that's it.



Right after Downloading the Viewer I ran to Vista to grab their Bento hands. 

It was the most logical choice for me as I love showing off my nails by my face.  I had also already purchased this amazing pose pack for the hands from Sweet Lovely Cute.  

I πŸ’• love πŸ’• the hands, I really do. 
The way they move, the included hand poses.  Just wow. They make me happy.

The only thing I do not like is the way the nails sit on the hands. 

They clip into the finger on a few of them and most polishes won't work with the omega applier as the texture stretches oddly.

But this is a small thing and as the thumb looks fine I went with a photo showing that !

↑Close up of how the nails cut↑
Oh yes!
 Another reason I am not too upset is they are offering  free updates so I'm sure it will be fixed as soon as they're able.


 Things I need next are:

  • Vista Miriam Bento AO. But alas it costs 1,999L. Makes me wanna sell my soul & buy it.
  • Absolut Vendetta  Hydra Bento Rings. These beauties cost 599L
  • A New Bento Mesh Head!!!
  • FATE Hand Poser HUD *I am hoping this will allow me to adjust my Beto hands while using a non Bento pose that I already own.*
• You can buy the Demo of the Vista Bento hands Here - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/VA-VISTA-BENTO-PROHANDS-FEM-DEMO-v2beta/10005526

• You can Buy  the Vista Bento Hands Here - https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/UPDATED-VISTA-BENTO-PROHANDS-FEM-V2BETA/10005497


testing 1,2

Please note.  The Skin applier is only supposed to be used on the new Simone head.  I just wanted to try it and don't own that one Always,Always!!!  DEMO!!

Merry Ho, Ho!

Merry Holidays Everyone!
I hope Santa was good to you in  both SL & RL. 
It was a quiet one for me in SL. No special someone to spend time with, not many friends left to do a gift exchange.  But RL was great!

Anyway, on with the stuff. I made quite a few photos for this as I suck so bad at full body shots and I wanted to get a lot in here.
Big shout out to one particular designer today.
 Julie Hastings of White~Widow. Thank you for making this tattoo! I LOVE how it trails right up the finger!!!! Please make some sweet lil bows & Ribbons , pretty please ?? πŸ’œ

If Only

Hai everyone, 

I Grabbed this pretty lingerie by Violent Seduction @ Collabor88 the other day and had to share it with you all.
I paired it with this super cute socks from =Zenith= and the neatest hair by #Foxy @ Hairology.
 I find it super neat as it comes with a styling HUD so it can be worn numerous ways. Totally perfect for when you wear something and maybe the hair pokes through the mesh of the top( You know what I mean eh? The struggle is real) Just tuck your hair back over your shoulder. No need to wear different hair. 
I may have been wearing this one for 3 days straight 😁

This Skin applier by Glam Affair & usually I wear very pale, like polar or Arctic but today I chose the Asian tone and man, I love the look. I'm especially loving on the brows and freckles on this skin. You can find it in a Gacha over @ Kustom9
 
My long mesh Nails are by {ZOZ} and fit Slink casual, Elegant & Elegant 1, Standard Avatar and the TMP 
(If you wear that. πŸ™„)

The polish I applied is also {ZOZ} and can be found @ The Chapter Four.
Ok, I got it all laid out for ya there. Think my next post will be all about freebies so keep your eyes peeled and in the meantime, Happy shopping!
Ember πŸ’™
