Skin Deep

Annyka Bekkers, the doll, dropped the prototype for her highly anticipated Tuesday skin line on me and I must say I am impressed. Her new phrase of choice, “couture level hand drawing”, certainly applies in this instance especially in places only seen with the naked eye. She and I engaged in quite the hilarious conversation, most of which arose after asking Nic’s opinion, because if you have a man in your Second Life you’re bound to hear about the skin you’re in. That being said, I am going to turn the body of this post over to Nic for “The Boyfriend’s Guide to *blowpop*’s Tuesday”.

If you think that I am picky about the birthday suit that I bare, I’m sure you can only imagine how touchy of a subject my counterpart’s skin is within the Sinatra household; Granted, she has much more of a selection to choose from than I do. Needless to say, she’s tried attaining my approval with many a demo fatpack, usually leading to my thumb to the floor and our avies out the door.

When Dahl informed me that Annyka had dropped a new skin on her, I took it with a grain of salt, as Dahlie peppered me up for a private screening for what she had hoped would entice my viewing pleasure — which to my surprise is exactly what it did.

From sheen to shadow, and lip to labia, this skin is quickly becoming a favorite of mine AND Dahlia’s. Mutual agreements FTW!

Annyka paid very precise attention to details, the little things some may take for granted. The cutely crafted cupid’s bow, luscious lip texturing, and shapely shadowing alone make for a skin worth your lindens, or a demo worth a look at the very least. But, when coupled with the surprisingly realistic hidden bits (oh hai clitoris!), this skin more than earns its place in any fashionista’s inventory. If not for yourself, do it for your fella.

Thanks Nic! Now I will quickly add my two cents. I typically don’t wear freckles, but it should be noted on the side by side closeups that the freckles (on the right) are very subtle, giving the skin a sunkissed effect perfect for summer as I know I tend to get a sprinkling of freckles across my nose IRL. And while I love the fresh faced appeal of this prototype, I am so looking forward to the array of makeup styles sure to accompany this skin on its official release. I love a dramatic smokey eye and a glossy nude lip, or in complete contrast a neutral toned lid with a cherry red pout.

Feel free to let Annyka (and us!) know what you’re looking forward to with this pending release in our comments section.

  1. where did you get the lingerie from?

  2. It’s from Canimal’s Puyu Swimsuit line and this particular pattern is called Popart.

  3. Hmm i really like this skin but unforuntaly hers never suit me, the features arnt round enough.

    I really hope this one works on my shape

  4. Hi Marni!! My shape often requires a bit of revision when slipping on a new skin, but I did zero alterations from my ‘Dutch Touch’ shape this time around. I really hope this one will work for you too!

  5. Hehehe i REFUSE to mod my shape im far to lazy, most skins work neways 🙂

  6. I’m with Marni – I lovelovelove the blowpop skins, I think they’re beautiful, I just can’t get them to work on Dove without heavy modding, which I refuse to do as well. ❤

  7. Well in a way you two are lucky as I find I have to mod myself for EVERY skin except these ones. Down with modding!

  8. YAY! I am in love with my Tuesday skin too =)

    -Portia ❤

  9. oh wow! I got the Boyfriend Seal of Approval! w00t! Thank you so much Dahlia and Nic!

    Marni and Dove, I know exactly what you mean. The problem with the Mellie skins is that when I made the original, I only used my own shape as a model. I did try to make the Mellie2 and Mellie3 less shape-specific, but I also wanted to keep the overall Mellie look,. With these new ones, I didnt have to worry about that at all. Its a whole new face, and I used a lot of different shapes to test it on, plus I’ve learned a little bit about how the avatar mesh works, so hopefully this one works better on a wider range of shapes than the others.

    Anyway, thanks for the nice comments 🙂

  10. im not sure what class this is nic is teaching, but i want a seat in the front!!!…
