Focus on Eyebrows: Oh Mouse, what should I buy?

rs_1024x759-160627110556-1024.Eyebrows-Beauty-Rehab-Overplucking.jl.062716

So I’d like to continue doing posts on comparing various products, and want to talk about another of my obsessions in SL.  The eyebrow.  I love eyebrow appliers, and I’m quite picky about the eyebrows Mouse wears.  In this post I’ll show you pictures of eyebrows I find quite pleasing, and also, talk about what I’d love to see a bit more from designers.  I’ve photographed Mouse in the same shot, using CAL windlight, with 8 different brows.  Please note that some are demos, and some are ones that I already own.  You be the judge!  If you do like what you see, I’ve put the SLURL to the store where you can purchase these brows in the caption on each picture. On a secondary note, I’d like to draw your attention to a NEW TO ME store, Matt & Gloss.  They make MESSY eyelashes.  I love these so much, because essentially, our SL avatars are already perfect and need no help.  Subtle differences brought to a face by the presence of something not quite right can make for a more unique avatar in a sea of stunning.  Ready?  Here we go!  Oh and once again,  I’m in my skybox.  I think I need a new skybox oh god.  That’s a whole other post.

First off – here are the brows that I OWN.

West of the Rain

Mouse_West3

Feeling a bit moody?  Like you’ve ended up in the wrong place?  Me too!  I found this place in the Destination Guide and woah can I recommend it!  Stunning locale.  I’ll let you know where it is after the cut.  In the mean time, this post is ALL ABOUT THE JACKET.  It put me in a MOOD.  I really loved it, so well done.  The jacket is by Pseudo.  I love everything about this jacket, the color, the cut, the QUALITY.  So well done.  Go buy this jacket.  Now.  You won’t regret it.  Since the jacket made me feel all sexy and 70’s, I decided I needed sky high heels, and a casual mini skirt (the ever perfect Vinyl).  Hair is Mithral, which I discovered at an event and was *GASP* inspired to go visit their main location.

As always, you can find all my pictures on my flicker here. All the outfit credits are after the cut.

Every Princess needs a crown.

Mouse_Story1

Okay so this post is not about a crown.  It’s about the rare phenomenon of Gacha. Here’s how it goes…I play a gacha, and desperately want a common.  I figure it will take me a couple of times.  I immediately get 3 rares in a row.  I play a gacha, I desperately want the rare…you get the rest.  I feel like I have to have my gacha voodoo working better, so that I can fool the gacha into thinking I want the commons and vice versa…or something!  Anywho.  I played for this lovely jewelry…wanted the necklace.  I got 3 rare crowns, and 2 pairs of earrings before someone on plurk said…”Why don’t you wait and get the common on MarketPlace.” DOH!  Anywho, I got this beautiful rare crown.  It seemed to go really well with some hair I picked up a while ago by Doe, and designer I know from previous brand, in a galaxy far far away!   The dress was another gacha.  I will be brutally honest.  I’m unsure about this dress.  The romance of it calls to me, but I could wish for a better texture.  The shoes are by the ALWAYS fabulous Ingenue and were snagged at the Arcade.  As always the full series of photos are on my flickr, along with tons of other pics by me.  The outfit credits are at the bottom of the post!

Oh my god, I love Josh!

Mouse_Josh1

Ah yes, and so we come to it.  The day that my av reminds me of Clueless.  It was bound to happen.  It’s the hair.  Which is FABULOUS.  This hair works in so many different ways, and can go with a lot of different looks, but since I love casual in SL, that’s the way we are going!  The hair is Amuse Me, by Magika, of course.  The totally FUN bag and Umbrella necklace are from Zenith and was a gifty from a plurk friend, Sparkle Skye, check out her Flickr page! The glasses are my own from that old chestnut, Dark Mouse ;-).   The hoodie (damn, I love a good hoodie) is from Blueberry, but you’ll have to pick it up at Collabor88. The cargo pants are utter perfection from Rebel Hope, where you literally can never go wrong.  The whole series of these pictures are on my Flickr!  The outfit credits can be found at the bottom of this article.  Happy Shopping!

what is joy?

mousejoy1

A lot of times, when I’m doing pictures in SL, I try to get my av to convey a certain emotion, which is not easy because my av mostly has resting bitch face!  However, since I’ve gotten the new bento head, I’ve branched out a bit more and I find myself playing with the animation HUD that came with my Catwa head.  It does inspire me to consider buying the more advanced one from Catwa, but I just blew 3K at the ARCADE on a single gacha sooooo…It can wait a bit.  In the mean time, I have been playing with the animation HUD.  I find that getting a good action shot might take some practice.  However, if I train the camera on my av in an already good pose, I can get a good emotive feeling.  That’s what happened here.  I love these pics, they are pretty much what I want ALL my pics to be.  They bring me joy, so they are JOY!  The lighting is what I want, the poses, the landscape etc.  It helps to have great stuff to show off.  I picked up the outfit from Coco at Fameshed, a favorite event and designer of mine.  The shoes were an FLF STEAL from Laville.    I also want to draw attention to the jewelry I’m wearing in the shots.  I will say again, as a former SL jeweler, I know of what I speak.  Yummy is simply doing the best jewelry in SL.  Flat out.  The necklace is a simple concoction, but I love the mix and match of things.  Of greater interest to me are the rings I’m wearing.  These are simply stunning.   I included a close up so you can see the work on these, the attention to detail.  The rings are in a gacha at the ARCADE.  Run, don’t walk.

As always, the entire series of pics can be found on my Flickr.  Outfit credits and Slurls to where you can pick up these fabulous things are at the end of this post.

Star Gazing

stargazing_mouse2

So while I’m re-acquainting myself with SL these days, I’m also discovering that I already have some favored designers.  In this post, another one of those.  I love Just Because.  There are several reasons this is one of my favorite brands, and the first is that I ADORE the styles.  But the absolute best reason is that I am always pleased with the fit.  I have not demo’d a Just Because purchase in FOREVER.  That’s because the SLink size always fits.  ALWAYS.  So it’s a brand I’d highly recommend.  Today, Mouse is wearing a cute dress with scarf, the Emily Dress.  I’ve gotten blue because I love blue.  The hair is from Magika, another favorite and the boots are  a gacha forever ago, from Bueno!    As always you’ll find the full outfit credits for Mouse staring at the stars after the cut, and these pictures and more can be found on my Flickr!  I’m adding a new feature to my blog, and it’s something I should have done long ago.  I like to explore wonderful areas in SL, and places I think everyone should visit!  So after each set of pictures, I will include a SLURL to where I am!

You better wake up.

wakeup_mouse6

So you may wonder why I would title this post, “you better wake up!.”  It has nothing to do with the current political climate at all…It has to do with me believing that my outfit is a bit like Sandy’s last outfit in Grease.  HAHAHA!  Anywho.  I found a new store, and it’s great.  It’s called Miss Chelsea. I dropped in while doing my regular Fifty Linden Friday route, which as always, is a great little event to find new stores.  I cannot stress this enough.  FRF is one of those events where you actually GO to the main stores and not only pick up a deal, but get to peek at the stores offerings.  Like everyone, I shop events.  But I really like checking out main stores too!  There were at least 3 new to me stores in Friday’s event, and I love finding new spots to shop.  The top and tights are from Miss Chelsea, and the sky high heels are from Breathe. Hair to love is Monso and the fantastic tattoo is White Widow. As always, the outfit credits and SLURLS are below the pictures and all this and more can found on my Flickr.

The eyes have it.

eyeshaveit_mouse1

So I’ve been hunting and hunting for eyes that were…errr…me.  And YAY!  Finally I found them.  And the winner is, Banana Banshee “Hely” eyes.  I’m sort of weirdly picky about eyes.  I could have gotten a HUD with 1500 different options.  I tried a demo and was lost in about 5.5.  I have this thing about Mouses’ eyes.  First off, her eyes are grey, with a hint of blue.  A bit steely.  They go well with black hair.  I’d actually found a few that were good enough, and even tried some of Banana Banshee’s other eyes, but nothing was working. Then found BB’s latest at Lost & Found and these are perfect.  YAY.  Oh and they were free.  The grey eyes are the demo! The other eye colors are fantastic too so go check them out. The rest of the outfit is a comfy cardigan from BlueBerry and some great hair from Doe, a new to me brand that I find I like a lot and will prolly go hit up the main store, since the last 2 styles have been from Gachas.  You can find more pics from this series on my Flickr, and as always, outfit credits are below the pics.

Finding Unicorns

unicorns1

Well some days you just don’t feel like working, heh?  That’s me these days, and so when I stumbled across a mystical being, who am I to pass up the chance to hang out?  Honestly I can’t recall where I am, just that I literally stumbled onto this and starting snapping pics.  I’m slumming it in the hooded sweatshirt from Vinyl, a new to me store, and a short fun casual skirt to go with.  As always, the outfit credits are after the pics and all these photos and more can be found on my Flickr!

Lovesick

mouse_lovesick2So one of the things about mesh heads that you have to deal with are appliers.  An applier, if you don’t know yet (there’s got to be someone lol) are little boxes you attach to your avatar, click a button and walla!  You have eye makeup, lashes….lipstick.  You also have tattoos!  So whilst playing around with my February Powder Pack new appliers, I came across a cute one that puts “lovesick” across your temple.  I can’t figure out why it won’t go away.  NO WORRIES!!! I’m going with it.  Looks cute, though..sad.  I’m not currently lovesick, though I imagine that I COULD BE!  Any who, the other parts of this post that I love.  This jacket combo.  I feel like I’m out, wandering around the cold cold world, but snug and warm in my jacket. Other things I like in this post, the hair by Mithral, I wish I could get my hair to look like that in RL, and the tweed boots from S@BBiA. Also, just a reminder, you can find these photos and all my pictures on Flickr!
