Iris Ophelia's ongoing review of virtual world and MMO fashion
It feels like it's been ages since my last real SL fashion post, so as a bit of a holiday treat I've pried myself away from Skyrim, Saints Row, and even Star Wars: The Old Republic for some good old fashioned Second Life style. So let's cut right to the chase with the details on my simple, seasonal look...
Mochi Milena of Pink Fuel has a habit of teasing fashionistas with tastes of her future skin lines, like this makeup named Nice from her upcoming release, Alyx. Alyx looks a bit like an older sister to Mochi's last release, Elly, and has the same immaculate shading and attention to detail that define Pink Fuel skins. You can pick up this skin, along with its slightly more sultry sister Naughty, for a paltry L$10-- just look for the little red gift box for the With Love Again Hunt at Pink Fuel's main store.

The hair and scarf combo from Wasabi Pills is thankfully far less controversial than the scarf I shared earlier this month, even if it is mesh (heaven forbid). Brrr...ee comes with a HUD to change the color of the scarf, as well as hairbases and alpha layers to make this look seamless. I'm still among the many residents wrestling with glitches in my mesh viewer of choice, so some alpha-textured wisps built into this hair didn't show up in my snapshot... and yet it didn't stop me from sharing because, even when my mesh viewer is bugging out, this hair is still adorable.

Finally, I'm loving the selection of sweaters out at Artilleri, including the Eartha sweater I'm wearing above. Although this top may be the latest and greatest, don't overlook the older holiday sweaters that Antonia Marat has released over the years. Her work has stood the test of time, and not being afraid to dip into older releases can help you stand out in a crowd. [Click here to teleport to ARTILLERI]
