If there is one thing I an not resist, even if I am super busy, it’s taking photos of new skins. With all the releases this week I really am in skin heaven; I know lots of you are right there with me! Earlier this week Asuka Martin of Dernier Cri released her Charlotte skin. It’s been a while since Asuka has given us a new skin release – many people know her for her fantastic hair – and in trying these on you can tell how much work she has put into these skins.
I didn’t do any body photos, but I want to point out that Asuka has made lots of body improvements too, the skin has a more natural look, with better shading and highlights. Gone is the belly ring and in it’s place is a much better belly button,
The faces all have hints of her previous Lina skin and yes I say “faces” plural. Usually, skin makers have a consistent face within each line, but Charlotte has categories, each with variations on the lip shape or face shading. If you compare all three faces shown in this post, those are all the Charlotte skin, and each has their own personality. When you go try the demos, don’t stop at one! Try on several of them before you make your choice otherwise you might miss the one you’d like the best. If you loved the Lina line, you will recognize the lips on the “Dawn” set; see El in the purple dress below.
Speaking of the purple dress!! No doubt you have heard that fantastic photographer and sometimes blogger Zoe Demar has launched her clothing line. These Ayo sheer cocktail dresses are my favorite of her releases. The sheer sides add a sexiness to the dress (the dress is also available without the sheer areas for those of you a bit more modest) and the details on the back keep me thinking someone is going to come up behind me and unzip me The skirts have great movement too, really soft and flowy.
