I saw a teaser of these eyelashes on flickr a few days ago and have been anxiously waiting for their release. I just noticed this morning that they were finally released. The eyelashes are from Mon Cheri and available inworld and on marketplace for L$299. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice a demo for them (UPDATE: see designer’s comments below, she has put out a demo now), however I can tell you that it took me less than 5 minutes to fit these. I am in a rush today so wanted to get this post out before I left for the day. I will come back and spend more time trying to fit them even better. They are very easy to use, in fact Freya Olivieri has an excellent fitting manual at this link. They come in 3 different styles, are modify and tintable in many colors. Here is a picture of the HUD they come with from Freya’s flickr so you can see all of the different options you get with them.
They are mesh alpha lashes so they have a beautiful feathery look, unlike other mesh lashes that look like a glob when you zoom out. When I posted the teaser of these lashes on different social networks earlier this week, I noticed a few people had some questions so I thought I would address them here in case others had the same.
- Do mesh eyelashes move with the eyes when you look around and blink? No, they don’t move, they are static. There is no way to attach items to the eyelids so when you blink they stay in the same spot. So if you are trying to take a closed eye picture, I suggest you remove them before doing so.
- Why don’t mesh eyelashes come rigged so they will move and blink along with the eyes? Again, since there is no way to attach things to the eyelids, this would not be possible. Also, if mesh eyelashes came rigged, that means they would be no modify and we would be unable to position and edit them properly to fit our individual eyes.
You can head down to the Mon Cheri store or pick them up on marketplace!
Have a great Sunday! <3

My sincerest apologies for all my blogging spam lately, I have just been feeling so inspired and wanted to get all this desire for blogging out of my system before I leave for vacation in a few days. Also, I just noticed that the pictures that I did for Linden Lab back in November finally […] Continue reading →
I had the honor of being interviewed by Bare. Bare is a project started by Adorkable Peapod and TrinityBelle Meriman where they interview different SLers around the grid. They just recently started it but have a few interviews up already. They’ve started with approaching regular plurkers, so if you guys are on plurk make sure […] Continue reading →
Although my birthday starts now (the 22nd of September) I’ve been feeling like it’s my birthday all day. You see, the bratty Mr. Prad Prathivi decided to give me a surprise and sent me on a birthday quest (although at the time I had no idea it was him). And so I asked my plurk […] Continue reading →
I couldn’t resist using my ALT today to show the back of this hot new mesh dress. This sexy dress came out in perfect time to help me celebrate my Plurk Anniversary today.

May 9th, 2012 is my 5th rezday. Five years ago today I found Second Life® and signed up whilst eating a bowl of strawberries, hence the name (yes, I am just that creative lol).

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Linden Lab® to create an image with a music theme. I wasn’t sure exactly what to do. Then I remembered this adorable pose I had from Olive Juice and asked Mr. Prad Prathivi to come sit with me. I think this is one of my most favorite […] Continue reading →

I first visited the Trilogy sim back in January of 2008. A good friend of mine told me about it and since then I have returned many times for photo opportunities. This “fashion alley in the rain” has a great array of shops to choose from. However, what I like most about it are the […] Continue reading →
Recently I’ve noticed a few comments on blogs, flickr and even plurk regarding the kind of people that use plurk for social networking. Plurk is getting to be known as a place where “drama queens” reside with timelines full of emotionally unstable rants and witch-hunts, 24/7. Although I admit that might be the case for […] Continue reading →
