Hey Guys!

This post isn’t about anything in particular today! I took a break from blogging to celebrate the holiday with my SL Family and RL Family, so I haven’t posted any new content in a minute! I have a lot to share with you, there’s been a lot of changes going on and stuff to talk about so I’ll be busy for the next few weeks! I’m excited about that! Above is my latest video. I just posted it today in a hurry to show you all how amazing the Cosmetize Semi-Matte Lippies were and to encourage you to go grab them from the MP! I had a few people on Discord and on Facebook ask me about the fit, and I knew I had to do this quick video to show you! I won them in the contest on FB, however I have her gloss set and some of her previous releases under New Beat Cosmetics as well! Hope you enjoy and i’ll see you soon with all the updates and THE HOUSE TOUR! Hopefully I can get it finished up and uploaded by the end of the week!

My Top 5 Genus Tips for Beginners!

#1 the most important part of making ANY look your own is the shape.

a lot of people switch over to the Genus Project head and they’re unhappy with the look and it’s mostly based on the shape they’re using. when I started I did try to play around with the given shape, however I ended up just creating a brand new shape and modifying it to my liking. that’s a great start to having your proportions on your face look the best. DONT USE A CATWA OR LELUTKA SHAPE!

#2 a hair base is your friend!

as with all mesh heads, the genus project head comes bald. there are some generic hair bases in the hud (no part, middle part, and baby hairs) however I’ve found that I like the way baby hairs look that sit a little lower. the bone structure on the Genus head is not the same as CATWA or Lelutka, so a hairbase that looks good on those heads may not fit the best on Genus heads. I’ve tried a lot of different hair bases, and Vaydia has been my favorite so far. The shape is perfect and they sit just right on the forehead. You’ll also need the Genus Project Omega Applier.

#3 makeup is your friend, but know your layers.

the beta version of this head is limited in layers. when the beta was open and testers were sending in information, this was the number one request… we need more layers! while it’s in beta, I’ve found ways to make the layers work for me. as mentioned before, if you’re wearing a hairbase via omega it’s gonna use some of your layers, so depending on your skin choice you may be very limited. when I’m searching for skins, this is something I’m looking for. I prefer a skin that has light makeup. I’m currently wearing Mila Vivian for that reason. She has a slight hint of eyeshadow and a light contour. This allows me to keep a hairbase that may use the eyeshadow and cheek layers. In addition, if I need to apply either of those, I can use the tattoo, face, or cheek layer. The head really shines (no pun intended) in advanced lighting and additional layers like highlight and contour look amazing with it on.

#4 fix me or choke me.

another huge complaint I’ve seen is about the neck seam. now again, the head is still in its beta version and I’m sure with the full release the head will fit seamlessly however right now without advanced lighting and the perfect wind light, the seam is very visible and at times the body can appear to be a different color than the head. I’m already a choker fan and wore them frequently before purchasing this head, however if you’re not or don’t plan to incorporate a way to cover your seam in your outfit, there are other options. I wear Belleza Freya and the Maitreya Size neck fix fits my neck perfectly. The hud also includes shades from the skinnery, however creators like Mila and Pepe Skins have included an applier that applies their shades to the Genus Neck Fix attachment which is awesome. Again advanced lighting is key here, it’s almost invisible there. since writing this blog, there has also been a neck fix update as well.

#5 dare to be different.

all in all, this is an amazing head and I could not go back to another at this point (unless it’s Fiore, see my skins post) simply because this head really has so many customization options to set your look apart from anyone else’s. I could stand beside someone wearing my exact skin and look completely different and I love that! hope you enjoyed the video and my tips and I look forward to seeing your looks!

Some honorable mentions that I got questions about were the Laggy HUD, Eyes, Animations… the HUD has since been updated in the latest version, resolving a lot of those issues. Wearing Rigged Eyes on my nose has resolved my eye problems, and I use the Vista Zoe AO which gives me facial animations for now!

Getting Settled…

Hey Everyone! I’ve been M.I.A. this week moving in world and getting a new look together! I filmed two different videos with two different makeup looks and now I’ve changed my look again… contemplating on still posting… if you want to see, leave a comment below!

To continue on my tease from Instagram, I’m clearing out my feed and starting fresh due to all the Flickr craziness and the new people coming over to Instagram. All my old photos that are on Flickr right now are cross posted here on the blog and on all my other social media as well if you want to take a look back!

Finally, as I said earlier, I moved AGAIN in world. I have a love/hate relationship with decorating and this move, I told myself I was going to find a decorating team to come in and do the decorating because I wasn’t inspired, BUT my sister rezzed the new Onsu House (Magnolia) and I fell in love with it and had to decorate. I’ve just got the basics down right now, but I can sometimes clutter decorate so I try to pace myself. Tell me, what’s your favorite decor store in world? Mine is Fancy Decor.

Thanks again for reading and don’t forget to reach out to me on any of my social media below with any requests!

My Favorite Skins.

My hands down, all time FAVORITE store for skins (and practically everything) will always be Fiore. ViveNine is an OG in the Second Life game and I even rocked them on my system head. The quality and realness of their skins has always been amazing to me and even before their time, their skins had sheen and texture. To me, they’re THE BEST. I’m also gonna list 5 more stores I love to give you some options!

  1. Tres Beau (Genus Head Lily Skin)
  1. Studio Exposure (Catwa Catya Head, Zora Skin)
  1. Pepe Skins (Formerly Atelier Pepe, Genus Head, Alyssa Skin)
  2. Flesh (Genus Head, Zahira Skin)
  3. Revoul (Lelutka Chloe, Valerie Skin)

Current Skin: L’etre Marie (I wrote this about a month ago… I’ve since changed to Mila Vivian!)
