A mens world…

While I know there are so many more items for women to buy in SL than for men I had a hard time to spend money today. Being in shopping mode I strolled around in Cravone City, a NYC inspired sim. First I found this lovely barber shop.

I was wondering if they are able to do a quick hair dry. The rain has just stopped.

But nobody served me even if there was a big OPEN sign outside. Maybe closed/lost due to Covid 19…

I waited for a while, then went on with my little city trip.

Next I saw an interesting shop ” Scotch” with only mens stuff. Is this a mens sim???
I actually fell in love with some shades – no demo.

I don’ t know how many shades I already bought and never wore, because they didn’t suit me. Here again I just couldn’t resist, but wow, these are great!!!

I took a landmark and will go on exploring later. Maybe then I will find the girls corner of Cravone City :-).

Wearing:
Slink Physique Body with my own Shape
Genus Strong Head with my own Shape.
Skin: “The Skinnery” Mycha Peach
Hair: Magika – Shimmer Blonde
Lipstick: Cheap and Chic! HDL-D #03

Happy Easter!

We have been sooooo busy, sorry for being so quiet.
But today we just had to do a little easter egg shot in front of the store to wish you some delightful easter days.

The wonderful egg with poses we bought from M-BdP.
Clothing is from Freda – Fashion and Accessories.

And there is a hunt starting today:
The legendary Evil Bunny Hunt with more than 60 spots.

Find the two eggs between all the new rubber boots in the shop.

Much Love,

Freda and Leonie

Rebirth Eden All-In-One Mesh Body Review

As promised I show you a little more of the Rebirth Eden mesh body today.

It is the most versatile mesh body available right now.
With one body you can “morph” your avi seamlessly from a little girl to an adult woman, to a male and back…

The Rebirth Eden Body is completely different from all other mesh bodies I tried. With all the versatility it is super easy to use and perfect for mesh body beginners.
The body comes with 10 skin tones and different shapes to start. The body is fully BoM (Bakes on Mesh), so you can use all system skins and BoM skins.
You can wear the mesh body with any mesh head you like.

To help you start with your shape there are 5 very different modifiable shapes included:
1. little girl
2. teen average
3. teen skinny
4. teen chubby
5. female
and 6. is my own adjusted Freda shape
The male version comes with 3 shapes.
You can adjust the body shapes with the SL appearance sliders.

The HUD is easy to understand. You get what you need with simple buttons and sliders on one page. There are no alpha buttons. You just use alpha layers coming with your clothing.

There are 3 breast options added to be used with the HUD – flat, small and normal.
This gives you the possibility to have real flat breasts and to make your kids realistic.
If you have your own favorite shape you most definitely have to rework it, because Rebirth is reacting very different from usual shapes.
I find it amazing how smoothly the transformation is working and how well clothing adjusts with up and down sizing this body.

Rebirth Eden is not the perfect super model body though, while I find super model bodies boring anyway. And if you like small and round, the charming chubby teen shape is just perfect for you. If you like small breasts, this body is for you, too.
The most fun for me is using the kids shape. It is so cute! Just take care you are not playing against Linden Labs policy regarding ageplay
And there are some sims where child avatars are not wanted. So take care for yourself and be respectful to others.

Clothing:
You need clothing, that is made for Rebirth Eden body.
There is a growing choice of new clothing items inworld and on the MP. The creators of the body are selling clothing in their main store and some independent designers like me are working hard on new releases.

Hair:
You need to have resizable unrigged hair, if you want to use the kids shape and teens shape. I shrinked my hair 12% – 15% for the kids avatar and 5% – 10% for the teen shapes.

Shoes:
You can use all unrigged flat shoes and stiff boots. For high heels, pumps and sandals you need shoes especially made for Rebirth Eden. I really hope there will be a fine choice of shoes soon.

Next week I will give you some tipps of styling a kids avatar with Rebirth Eden.

Take care, stay healthy and have fun,
Freda

Little Rebel

Some time ago I was asked if I want to design for a brand new mesh body Rebirth Eden.
I loved the amazing concept to be able to simply slide down the avi from normal height to teen and kids size with just one body.

Today I only show some images. Its been so much fun to play with the little rebel, go shopping new hair, a new AO and update some of my clothing.
A review showing HUD and possibilities of the Rebirth body will follow.

BoM clothing works like a charm without any adjustments, like the pantyhoses and a tank top I found in my inventory.

Hair and shoes for the kid have to be unrigged and resizable. Unfortunately the curly Freda hair is not resizable, so that I decided to create an all new character.
Mesh clothing must be rigged newly and for tight tops you need to do various breast options (flat, small, normal). I love challenges, so I upgraded some of my newest mesh creations.

Below you can see the difference between my kids avi and my twin sis Fredda.

Totally out of my work life balance…

A couple of days ago my husband looked at the screen and said “Freda got dark circles and eye bags. She works too much at the computer…”. And it’s true! I did not change anything with my avi and she looks tired just like real me.

But now comes the good part. At last I have had enough time to make some own mesh clothing items. Boy it’s hard. But I never give up when I want to do and learn something and in the end I succeed – mostly.

I was so proud being accepted at the upcoming Rock you Rack fundraising event.
My ambition did not allow creations from templates for my exclusive item, so I had to go through it.
Yesterday I set up my booth at the RYR Event and it will start for public on 3rd October.

Today I am going to set up some cosy handmade fall sweaters in my inworld shop and make everything fit the fall season. After that I will releax, with a good feeling.

And I promise there will be not again such a long time not saying a word here.

Take good care for yourselves and be prepared for some fun new products, hunts and events coming soon,

Love, Freda

Small changes – big effects

It is Friday morning – no people. Everybody is doing groceries, my feet still sandy from swimming in the morning and I decided to do some quick improvements in my main store.

Freda-SL-Shop-2020-1Freda-SL-Shop-2020-2

I saw these beautiful simple poster clips lately, so I replaced all the heavy thick image displays with light and loose hanging paper prints. I LOVE these so much more!

Freda-SL-Shop-2020-4Freda-SL-Shop-2020-3

Next I replaced all those shiny golden clothing rails to almost invisible dark silver metal rails. What an improvement. Maybe nobody will notice it, but the overall look is just so much better.

Freda-SL-Shop-2020-5

The new rails are eating some more Li’s, but thanks to a wonderful Linden employer, who answered to my ticket super fast I could buy another piece of abandoned land to enlarge my shop area.

After all that hard work I took a little rest in my mermaid rest area in the center of the store. Sputnik, my store robot is still flying in circles greetings customers since beginning of last year without any issues. He may stay!

Freda-SL-Shop-2020-6

Sand is spread allover the floor anyway, so it was more than ok to walk on my bare and sandy feet feeling comfy while working (waving to the cleaning woman…kiss!!!).

Now you and me, lets enjoy our weekend!
Stay safe and healthy,

Love, Freda
