My First Collaboration (with Quincy Robin)

Grid Status: Online | In-World: 48,898 | SL Time: 4:25 pm

It's been a busy summer full of learning experiences for me and over at BVNSL, we volunteered to be matched up with another blogger in Second Life™ to do a styling collaboration. Since I am brand new to blogging with others, I was more than a little nervous...I am such a chameleon in SL and my style is very whimsical and honestly - all over the map, in a contrast to First Life where my style is very set. 

After a false start where my original partner had to bow out due to RL concerns, I am pleased to say that I was matched with Quincy Robin. I was very impressed with her blogging and especially her vlogging because she has such a calm and professional approach and her films are so well coordinated. She is a delight to work with, very supportive, considerate and encouraging and she really has such impeccable style! Her manner is very warm and also funny too and many laughs and tips were thrown around while we got ready. I hope she had as much fun as I did. :)

Akeruka Lulu Bento Mesh Head - Shape Up

Grid Status: Online | In-World: 50,367 | SL Time: 1:43 pm

I think today is the last day to pick up Akeruka Lulu and Aron 2.6 as group gifts with a L$150 join fee. I will list my shape for Lulu x Maitreya on the MP in a few days. As you can see, I still need much work to transform the body shape to fit the Maitreya body. I think I will do 3 body types, model, slim and curvy. Ive learned so much this year about shapes and proportions!
I wonder...should I do a system body shape too? These heads come with full skins, appliers and are compatible with the Second Life system body. I still wear a full system avatar in Kitely. 

[AK] Mesh Head Lulu Vers. 2.6 Bento + teeth...the skin, appliers and makeup is what comes with the HUD though I did some tinting, as I always do for most everything tint-able in Second Life!
