Friday night: the LBD

We all need one, don’t we, girls? The famous Little Black Dress, or LBD. Today, Mar has put together a look around an LBD she has featured before, because there are some fab new group gifts around that go perfectly with it.

The dress is Elsinore from the Glam Affair/Beauty Avatar Couture Discount Room (see this post for how to get there once you’ve landed). For just L$10 you’ll get the dress and the gorgeous lacy mask for your eyes. The shoes are a group gift from Baby Monkey (free to join: the gift is in group notices together with a white pair of shoes, as well) – the Dita pumps, complete with fishnets (you can also wear them without the fishnets). The hair is a group gift (free to join) called Donna from Adam n Eve, and you’ll get black, blue, and ‘mermaid’ (a deep sea-blue-green) shades. Search for Adam n Eve sachi Vixen update group and you’ll find the gift in group notices.

Lastly, the eyes are free at Tuli‘s mainstore. You’ll find five beautiful gemstone eye colours in a purple giftbox inside the store. Mar is wearing the sapphire version. Also inside you’ll find a pink cylinder right behind the eyes, containing a free pack of Tuli’s Kalista skins in four tones. Lastly, for group members (L$250 to join, and have your group tag active when you click!) there’s a green box containing a preview of Tuli’s Tanya skin in two brow colours, which is shown in the preview image here.

The Baby Monkey shoes have great customisation. You can get the exact colour of your skin and set the prim feet to match it. Simply open the Advanced option of your viewer (CTRL+ALT+D) and select UI > Show Color Under Cursor. Find some good lighting and hover the mouse over your leg as close as you can to the top of the shoe. Make sure you’re standing on a dark floor, and you’ll see the numbers in the lower right of your viewer. Write these down, then click the shoe and enter the Custom Skin option if you’re wearing them without the fishnets (use the Fishnet Foot option if you want to change the skintone under the fishnets). Then, click Red and type the first number into chat, Green and type the second, etc. If it’s a little bit ‘off’ for your skin, keep moving the cursor a little and noting down the new numbers. It shouldn’t take long to get a good enough match (check it in a couple of lightings, too: midday and sunrise or sunset at least!)

This is the group-only skin:

And this is the tan tone of the free Kalista skins (also available: fair, light, and medium) –

Lastly, here’s a closeup of that gorgeous lacy mask that comes with the Elsinore dress:
