Genesis Lab has released another new mesh head named Charly. I admit, I’m not a big fan of Charly, but I wanted to feature another Genesis Lab head since I haven’t blogged them as often. They have very diverse and good quality heads, but every time I try one on, I don’t feel like me in them, aside from Giorgia. Although I must admit, after that post, I tried wearing Giorgia a couple of times and ended up taking it off and going with something else as I didn’t feel like me in it anymore.
Most of the time the Genesis Lab heads feel a bit alien-ish to me, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since this is Second Life and we can be whatever we want to be. But I just feel like they don’t suit me or my personality. With this Charly head, it’s a beautiful head that’s very well done with many options, but I just don’t feel like it suits me.
Another thing that I feel Genesis Lab heads lack are expressions. I do enjoy using expressions often now that more mesh heads are being released with expressions or have that option available for purchase. But I know majority of people don’t really mind not having expressions so this head will work well for them.
The head itself is currently available at Shiny Shabby and it costs L$2500 for one skin tone. It is available in 4 skin tones and I’m wearing the darkest one. I’ve done a little video showing you some of the makeup options the head comes with.
Also I did want to mention that SL13B activities have been going on all week and I’ve only had the chance to go to a couple of them. Saturday all of the events will finish but the exhibits will be up for another week after that. So make sure to visit and check them out. I’m going to see if I can do some streaming from SL13B if I get the chance soon. UPDATE: Don’t forget to check out Music Fest at SL13B as well, starts tomorrow!

(click here for a raw shot) Have you guys ever fallen in love and you know that no matter what happens you will most probably love that person forever?

Catwa Catwa has released a new mesh head yesterday by the name of Gwen and I feel it has quite a bit of attitude. I also feel it looks quite different from her previous releases. One thing to note about Gwen’s release is if you read her flickr, she states that she has released an […] Continue reading →
One phrase that I hear a lot from people when they describe mesh heads in Second Life is “uncanny valley.” Is that how you feel about them as well? Let’s compare the first picture to the second picture in this post, do they both look like they are from Second Life? In the second picture […] Continue reading →

(click here for a raw shot) Are you a skybox hermit? I can be at times, but I also like exploring the grid. I like scouting locations for shoots or just exploring the creativity of Second Life content creators. However, I can also be quite anti-social and just want to keep to myself, dress up […] Continue reading →

As you can see, Manberry and I have a very interesting relationship, which you can tell by both images in this post. I think since I wear the pants in this relationship, we should all just start calling him Mr. Singh. :P The Sartorialist Showcase pose prop I’m using in the first image is from […] Continue reading →
I always struggle with black and white photos so I’m going to try and practice them more often. I feel like in the past I didn’t put enough black into them so I tried to do that more this time but now I think there is too much black lol. I always admire Bear Silvershade‘s […] Continue reading →
(click here for a raw shot) You may have noticed that I’ve been feeling a bit horny lately. Horns in this post and also my Warrior Princess post from the other day. I’ve never really worn horns before, but I’m kind of having fun with them now. Now I’m no expert in horns, but these ones seem […] Continue reading →
It took me incredibly long to get ready today because I was determined to wear the mesh body and not give up. After a lot of shape adjusting, playing with the alpha hud and swearing at myself continuously, I finally got ready without any glitches or parts sticking out. I don’t know about you, but […] Continue reading →
Immaculate is the exact word I would use to describe some of the hair that is available at Hair Fair this year. I’ve already spent a small fortune there and plan to head back in a week or so and spend a bit more. Hair Fair opens tonight (Saturday the 12th) at midnight, hope you […] Continue reading →
