My personal 4 favourite Shop Layouts

I always loved expos in RL and in SL as a participant or just a visitor. And it is fun to nominate my favourite creative booth layouts. It is the first time I have a booth myself and I know it is not easy to make the best out of a big grey and white space. So here are my 4 favourites for the SL19B Shop and Hop event:

1. By far the most beautiful fashion store booth, again: AlaFolie
She just knows how to make a creative random messiness, colorful and still elegant and I am so in love with that huge window bringing in fresh air and the impression of a beautiful surroundings.

2. My second place is the beautiful mystic booth of .: RatzCatz :.
The columns and ornaments are just breath taking and the statues they sell and the lights….phew…
And I love the wall rolls to the right to show the vendor displays. A perfect must-see!

My No.3 goes to [ContraptioN].
Here you get a great Steampunk feeling and the store is still clean with an easy to get overview of what they sell. This event is so overloaded and time is short. So you just need such calm places to relax your eyes. And of course I have bought that fun technical backpack to the left :-).

4. An optician and the steampunk style. My No. 4 goes to DEEP STATIC
Well, I am the daughter of an optician in RL, so I am always interested in glasses :-). Deep Static always provides beautiful gifts. And this time they have made such a wonderful open air store with NYC in the back ground and an “open” ceiling and a huge fun steampunk hand.
It is a pleasure to walk from one side to the other and get all the demos. I never buy glasses without demo. So I had to skip many other brands. Thank you, Deep Static!

Preparing for Winter

SL is great to see the beauty of winter while here in RL it is mostly just dark smuddly and cold.My favorite sim while exploring was the calm and sunny all natural place with the poetic name “Where our Journey begins – Winter of 21. Wispering Windz”.

After finding new friends like the Snow Owl you can do endless walks on boots or ice scates, do a ride on a beautiful pony (no pic with me on the horse, I just do not make a good figure up there….lol) and have a hot chocolate in the end.

Enjoy a wonderful winter weekend!

Love, Freda

A new mesh body hit the grid! Cinnamon&Chai

Here she is: Cinnamon!

Slinks Creator Siddean Munro just released her new mesh body today.

It is sold under a new brand „Cinnamon&Chai“, but with the well known creativity, perfection and unbeatable personal customer service of the Slink Team.

I had the chance to work with the new body to update my clothing collection in time.
And I instantly fell in love with this naturally curved, realistic and mature female body. I had so much fun working with her, that I updated much more clothing than intended in the beginning.

But actually this body should not be covered too much.
It is just too beautiful to hide :-).

See some picks in use on my Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/fredas/

Playing with the SL shape sliders you’ll get cute life like love handles. But the slender body is well shaped, too.


In the beginning I was quarrelling a little bit with the big breasts. I am more the Cup B type. But there is always something on your body (and I especially mean RL) you have to struggle with, so this is just the realism most mesh bodies in SL are missing. I put fabric around the heavy boobies, played with the dials and the decolete just turned out breath taking with some deep cut tops 🙂

I love the belly and thigh parts, which are just naturally curved.
And if ever you can say of somebody to have beautiful knees, Cinnamon got them!
Hand and feet are of realistic size and shape. My husband admired the wrist bones when looking at her 🙂
The feet are animated, so there are no extra meshes for every height.

Images are taken with Midday light and no postwork wearing the Lelutka Antonia head with EVO X option and a face skin from The Skinnery.



Why Cinnamon and Chai?

The package you buy includes 2 bodies: Cinnamon and Chai.
On first sight they look exactly the same. 

The difference is, that Chai still uses a uv map very close to the SL system avatar, which means you can wear BoM clothing and existing skins. Just the feet are mismatching due to the “2 separate feet” function.

Cinnamon got a new uv template to have 2 truly different arms and feet. This is great for asymmetrical skin parts, tattoos and BoM clothing.

For Cinnamon you need skin and BoM products especially made for her. The package you buy includes 19 skins, a great start to play.

I find it a good concept to sell both bodies in one pack for using your existing items on Chai in the beginning and then switching more and more to the special made products with Cinnamon if you like.

Mesh clothing for Cinnamon&Chai always fits both bodies. 

Find the Flickr group for vendor ads here:
https://www.flickr.com/groups/cinnamonchai/

Now looking at the HUD. This is well sorted, easy to understand and you get everything you need.

Clicking on „alphas“, „skin“ and „extras“ gives you a new folder in your inventory, each with useful alpha layers, 19 skins and the extra folder with a cute pink mesh bra and panties set, 3 basic shapes and several appliers.

There are 5 different nipple options on the HUD. And I always love to have a „hide nails“ option also for the feet in addition to tintable stocking caps. BoM underwear lovers get a „smooth panties“ option. 

The nail polish options are basic, but you can wear all Slink nails, which make things easy, too.
The Special Effects tab shows some useful and pretty options. I love the „wet-look“ and of course the „glitter“.


All official infos about Cinnamon&Chai you’ll find here: https://becomecinnamon.com/

Price for the Cinnamon&Chai meshbody is 4.800 L$

My Summary:
I just LOVE Cinnamon and Chai. Just go get the demo and check her out yourself.

Red is not a color for fall?

You are right. This is not Freda. Freda is behind the camera 🙂
While making fashion pics yesterday I discovered this wonderful grown-in phone booth on a sim from destination guide, Finnygook Cove.

When coming back dressed in Red and ready for a shot we could not find the booth anymore….lol. It was so well hidden in the green. Zooming in and out from the top I found the red spot, but then again going there with the avi was something completely different…

But I never give up and in the end we got these beautiful pics. And a mix of warm fall colors with red, which usually does not match at all.
