Japan – 1 Year Later

Today marks one year since the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. We all saw the devastating pictures of the damage that was caused, the thousands of people left homeless and all those people who died and the ones that are still missing. It’s a part of history that we will never forget. In my school we were taught about the Vikings and Cold War (as examples), important parts of history but topics that I found boring. (Probably why I failed History GCSE.) I hope schools in the future include events such as the Japan disaster in their curriculum so that our future generations are taught about them.

There have been a number of fundraising events in Second Life since the disaster, and thousands of dollars raised for various charities. There is an event on right now, which I don’t think has had much exposure. It’s called Move for F of JapanAs far as I understand, the Move for F of Japan events started a year ago but this month is the final one. There’s info on the blog, if you don’t understand Japanese, there’s a translate button on the page. There are only a few items at the event, but they are super cute items. Seraphim covered the event, so if you would like to see items before you go, check out the website here.

On to the outfit! These adorable earrings that I’m wearing have 173 little pearls delicately placed on the larger pearl. There are 8 different colours available and this is a brand new release at undefined lilies. I am in awe of Liliana, her jewellery is so intricate and in my eyes, close to perfection. I don’t know if she realises how talented she is and by gosh I am jealous! I couldn’t cope with prims so small! The shorter necklace is also from undefined lilies. The cardigan is from C’est la vie and it’s an item from the Move for F of Japan event. It’s available in two other colours.

This skirt is a new release from Aura, there are a bazillion and one colour options and all come in Standard Sizes. The skirt is floor length and designed to be word without shoes, which is something I do very often!

It’s Esmee!

Did you know that Iki Ikarus is back? After a long break, Iki is back making gorgeous skins! Her first release is Esmee. Esmee is a gorgeous, fresh-faced skin. She can be bought with makeup for around L$1700 or without makeup for L$850. I bought the bare-faced skin in the Dark Olive tone. You can see the range of skins on Iki’s flickr.

I’ve started buying makeup free skins now because I like being able to customise them, of course I still love skins with makeup and if I see one that I adore I may purchase it (if I have lindens).

So in this blog post I’m showing you the Dutch Touch Esmee bare skin in the Dark Olive tone. All the makeup that I’ve used in this post are separate tattoo layers purchased in various stores, mainly at Kozmetika. The first look is just the skin, no makeup layers or eyelashes.  The second look is more of a casual one, with hardly any makeup. There’s eyeliner under the eye, subtle lip colour and blusher. I also added the Dainty Black eyelashes from Beetlebones. The third look is a going out one, with smokey eye makeup, blusher, thick eyelashes and lipstick (the one I wanted to use didn’t fit the lip shape unfortunately).

The clothing I chose is based on the makeups, so I wore lingerie for the first picture, casual vest, shorts and cardigan for the second outfit and a little black dress and hot pink bag for the third outfit.
