To start off with this post is going be be NSFW further down, it is a skin review after all.
Mochi Milena, owner and designer of Pink Fuel, has released an update to the Doll skin line. This time it’s Vamp flavoured, my favourite. As an extra little bonus you can find a free gift in store beside the new Vamp Doll. You will need to be a member of the ~uber update group~ then simply touch the sign to get your free skin add on. It contains the skins with all the different brow colours and each one has the sexy eye scar as you can see in the pic below. The horns are included in the Doll Vamp skin and the hair I have on will be released at this months The Chapter Four event opening on the 4th. It’s a a gorgeous flop hawk pulled back into a sort of fish braid finished off at the base of the skull and hanging in a long pony. The hair comes complete with a shaved base that features the ‘part lines’ close to the hair where it is pulled up.
Now on to the fun part – lets look closely at the skin and ALL that comes included in the package (well not ‘all’ inclusive as I don’t use Baby Bump and I have yet to make any mouth appliers look ‘good’ on my shape).
You get quite a range of eyebrow options. What I love is the ability to tint your eyebrows should you wear a non natural hair colour. If you aren’t up to speed on how to colour your brows there is a notecard included, but lets face it, no one reads notecards these days. But bonus point to Mochi for covering all bases and including the step by step how to. There is also the cheats way out by wearing already coloured eyebrow options. I chose to cheat for today and am wearing the blue, orange and red versions. The recolourable eyebrows come in three lightnesses depending on how bold you want your colour to stand out and I have worn these uncoloured so you can see the base colour they start off at. If you are a make up lover there is a range of lip glosses to choose from. These are not a full lipstick colour, just a gloss so they fade from dark to nothing starting at the centre of the lips.
More makeup options included are eyeshadows and button nose, both worn in the shots below. The button nose is really not that noticeable, I had to put it on and take off quite a few times to notice the difference, so I wasn’t too worried about my labels covering most of the nose here. Play with it yourself, maybe it was windlight setting that made it near impossible to notice. I love the subtlety of these eyeshadows, nothing too over the top and mixed in with just the right amount of smokey black to make them not too girly.
Now the appliers section and this is where we get into the NSFW pictures so if you haven’t loaded the pics below yet and you are not in a place for viewing full frontal nudity then I suggest you save this page for later viewing.
The skin comes with the option of the standard pack of appliers which consists of Baby Bump, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam Mouth, Lola Tango/Puffy Breasts, Lush Breasts, Lena Mesh Body and the Cute/Phat Azz. You can then choose to buy the Mesh Project pack which includes the standard appliers plus the Mesh Project Body appliers; the SLink pack which includes the standard appliers as well as SLink Physique/Hands/Feet + Visage appliers. Or go for the full pack which includes ALL of the appliers. I started off the appliers section with the Azz and Breasts combinations. Also included is a close up of the seam between the mesh Azz and the SL avatar mesh. The only one that was truly noticeable to me was the Boi Athletic. You can’t notice it that much in my photos as I blurred the line but there was a slight seam showing. Otherwise the flow from SL avatar to mesh azz was pretty much perfect.
A quick side by side of the Second Life Avatar, SLink Physique and Lena Mesh Body. One thing that really stands out between them all is the area below the clavicles. On the Second Life body you can see a very distinct colour difference as it leads into the chest, but that disappears once you apply the skin to a mesh body.
As mentioned above the colour difference that shows on the mesh body is quite obvious in these close ups. I’m not sure if this is due to the new skin tone that Mochi is working on or just the horrible mesh of the Second Life avatar distorting it. In either case this is something to take into consideration if you plan on wearing a Second Life avatar with strapless or nude top half. The mesh bodies however, this is not an issues.
In the pack you have a folder of body modification tattoos. These tattoos are handy if you wish to change your shape to more of a boi look, small chested, curvy, athletic or even ripped. As well as these layers there is a vagina removal tattoo layer, handy for those that wish to attach male genitalia; and a breast shading removal layer to wear with mesh breasts.
The Lena Mesh body comes with all the options listed above that you would normally wear a tattoo layer for, and they are all included in one simple to use HUD.
You have a choice of Default, Curvy, Athletic or Ripped. Each with small chest or cleavage option as well as a freckle layer for each.
The SLink body is as above with the layers included all in one simple to use HUD.
You may notice that the Lena Mesh body still has that slight colour variation around the clavicle chest area while the SLink Physique does not.
One last thing to point out before I go. There is a faint white line visible on the Lena Body close up photos. This is not a fault in the skin, but a seam in the mesh body itself not lining up completely.
