Piercing the Gloom

We’re not yet at the point of glorious russet leaved autumn -more four seasons in one day, beaming sunshine one day, thunderstorms and chilly apathy the next but our Fall into autumn in SL is already so pretty, we are not so sad to rummage in inventories for chunky knits and rich, harvest shades.

I was thrilled to check out the new range of Amare  Eyes from Aphotic Gloom– its creator Rico Plisskin has give them a painstaking 45 layers of detail and the range comprises 6 colour packs with 8 pairs in each. The eyes have a strong fantasy element, great depth and detailed scleral (eye white) shading and for those unsure of the appealing large pupils, a “blank” eye layer then allows you to adjust the size of the pupil via the prim- ingenious, non? The eyes are dark and mysterious but offer such delights for close-up photography ..and gazing into one’s significant other’s eyes maybe?

I snapped up the Golds pack for starters, to add a new element to my ever burgeoning eye closet (ooh how macabre is she…now I want SL cupboard full of eyeballs lol!) and where better to head to than the Nordari sim, Lusiades- where better than to scuff the leaves with your boot and sigh as the chilly wind ripples the lake’s perfect surface.

Had to quickly dash back to Rebel Hope Designs, where the collection is being sold, as I heard Rico had generously provided a dollarbie version..and the colours of this are truly unusual and exciting- I struggled so hard against the computer and SL to take piccies so please forgive..and enjoy..and go get!! A new collection is already on the drawing board – great news!

Starry-eyed Surprise

I see my fated stars in your eyes.

They melt me like the sun does snow  

I was originally inspired to write this post over a week ago (arghh!) when I heard the inimitable (despite some people’s best efforts) Bronson Twine had decided to call it a day on his iconic Ir(regular) Guy blog and I was kinda muhuh.  However please don’t say grey is boring, oh no and ESPECIALLY not in the field of SL eyes, as personally I find grey/ silver eyes some of the most striking around.

While thinking of grey, I could not help but mention the upcoming “Wear Gray for a Day” event, coordinated with tireless enthusiasm by Sanura Snowpaw in aid of the American Brain Tumor Association- maybe you hadn’t considered grey eyes, when pondering what to wear to support this worthy cause? Visit the official website for more information about the event running between the 12th and the 25th September and do your bit for the cause.

Here are 6 of my favourite grey eyes in Second Life and believe me , I had a hard time choosing!

None of these eyes are truly “coloured prim” eyes but the L.Fauna and Mynerva have extra prims to add a special glint and shine.

I will put the individual pics on my Flickr, in case you want to see each eye in more detail.

I have long been a huge fan of Shine Eyes, as for lucid brilliance for a very modest price, I find them hard to beat and I wear this Lustrous Argent pair A LOT.

Pulse eyes have the most amazing shadows in them and a glassy clarity, coupled with realistic scleral (white of the eye) shading.

Hermony eyes seem to couple a gritty realism with a fantasy element seamlessly and I have to admit my own pupils widened with delight and my brain said WANT!! as soon as I first saw the eye vendor in store.

L.Fauna eyes have become a fairly recent joy and seem to burn through you with their large-pupilled vivid colour- each pair has 2 types of prim to experiment with.

These Detour Crystal Eyes were one of my first “ooh quite expensive but so good” purchases in SL- the pupils are quite small but the detail fantastic they are only sold in complete colour packs but they always seem to give me a different look when I wear them.

Finally after tracking down this oh so gorgeous skin that is Mynerva‘s Think Pink hunt prize, I had to pick up some eyes to try too – you can adjust the brightness of the prim to give some dramatic effects , especially in low light conditions and it is definitely a brand delivering far more than just skin (even though I ❤ the skin very much!)

The Eyes:

L. Fauna: Charm Eyes – Grey I

Mynerva: SoulHeart eyes- Charcoal

Detour : Crystal Eyes – Grey (dark sclera)

Pulse: Pulse Eyes – Candy #3

Shine: Lustrous Argent

Hermony: MP Eyes- Vamp

Lashes: Irresistible Lashes by Crissy Design (my other favourite of favourites pair) and just 50L

Skin: Mynerva– Sophie (Think Pink Hunt)

Hair: Fri.day– Lola (Gloomy Grey)
