Really good black skin is not easy to find in Second Life, but so far what I have seen, Glance Skin, created and owned by Joakim Asbrink,  managed to create black skins that are about as realistic as possible.  The face is so nicely detailed and the body part is as greatly detailed.  Joakim is known for her very detailed skins.

 They come with 7 different make ups:  1.Alek - Attention, 2. Alek - Metallic, 3. Alek - Red, 4. Alek – Angel, 5. Alek – Black, 6.  Alek - Colour and 7. Alek – Blue

The price per skin is 999 L and for a fatpack which usually contains 7 different make ups, the price is then 4500L.

There are a lot of different ways of making skin, one is hand-drawing, where you start from scratch, second is you mix hand-drawn with photorealistic sources and third is when the photosourced is dominating. What you like, is personal choice.  

Today I would like to introduce a relatively new skin designer, Joakim Asbrink, and she is absolutely not a noob when it comes to making skins. In her own words: “I have always been looking for realistic skin since my first day here in Second Life, so I started out mixturing with textures and making custom work for myself. I have always been creative and loving to make things for myself.  When my skins got better and better along with the tecniques, I decided to start selling skins. I love to be inspired by celebrity skins and put them into Second Life and I have already been inspired of, for example Angelina Jolie, Dita Von Tese,  Jennifer Lopez and many more.”

Summer is almost gone and we will miss those fabulous fashionistas wearing light and colorful summer clothing, but don´t cry – autumn is an exciting season for mix-matching outfits. Today I put different designers in a pan and mixed them well to get these looks. Let’s start from the top; in the first picture the cute hair with the hat costs only 40 L from W&Y. Can you imagine? So cheap and yet chic! Let’s go down a bit to the necklace called Moonbeam from the famous JCNY Collections and further you can see the black jacket “Nicole” from =Dela*= which comes with different options and sizes, as well as various color options. My pants and shirt are from a set called Oro d´autunno from Emporio Naima and my shoes are the new release from Bax Coen: Bax Ankle Boots in black patent. The lush fashionable skin is called Adriana in “dark blue” from Glance – I will write more about Glance skin for my next week’s blog post, so stay tuned and check it out next Wednesday.

In the second picture, I am wearing a cute sweater called “Maia” (part of a set with jeans) with an oversized collar which comes in different color options in a package -  it’s almost only available like this with lots of colors to mix with, at Barerose Tokyo. My jeans are from =Dela*= and what you see here is only one of many choices for the autumn. The sassy hairstyle is “Danita” from Hair Solution – you will find it in 5 different colors per package. My skin is again Adriana from Glance, but in another makeup tone called “Sexy”. The shoes are the fabulous Bitchy Boots from Stiletto Moody and the matching black striped opacity socks are from Sheer.
