Happy Anniversary Kustom9

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are celebrating the 6th anniversary of the Kustom9 event, which has exclusive offers from many talented designers across the grid. In addition, as part of the anniversary round there are gifts for all members of their free Kustom9 gift. Just click the sign on the wall near where you land, and there is a sample of the gift box that most of the designers have used to hold those generous treats for us. The round is open until the 9th of November so you have over 2 weeks to visit.

My first look comes from AGATA mode, called Helena Dress Kustom9 gift. It is fitted for the Maitreya mesh body, and includes a HUD with 7 color choices for the top section, two of which you can see above. The long sleeve contrasted by the strap and bare shoulder on the left is a unique look, and the hem is slightly off-kilter for even more quirky beauty.

For my next look, I decided to ramp up the drama by adding an accessory to a daring bodysuit. The LAZYBONES - High Cut Bodysuit - Vamp comes in Freya, Isis, Slink, and Maitreya sizing, with a cutout where the teeth open to flash a little bit of cleavage. The collar is our gift from CULTE called SALEM COLLAR-RLV, and is provided in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh sizes. Give it a click for a menu where you can turn RLV on or off, along with many other features including poses.

I have another duo to show you, starting with the Anna Dress Kustom9 Gift by MARTI. It comes in a single Maitreya size, and has a coppery texture with major side slit on the left hip and double straps with one sliding delicately down the right shoulder. For this look I paired it with the Rebel Gal gift of their Diamond Sexy Choker Fatpack, which works via HUD and has 4 metals and 9 diamond colors including the rainbow option seen in the inset. You can click the choker itself for a resize script if necessary.

Need something cozy to wear on a cool autumn night? Well then be sure to claim the group gift from unA. which is their Carol sweater. It is provided in a Maitreya size and has extra long sleeves in subtly striped black. I am wearing it with the Delizio marketplace gift (that appears here on my blog fairly often) in blue, one of several denim colors included as system layers plus Maitreya and Omega appliers.

The Delizio jeans are still on, but the top is a quite different gift :) Luas is offering their Witchy Top as a group gift for Kustom9, a sleeveless crop style with a high neckline in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Legacy, with a HUD that lets you pick from 6 fabric colors and 6 stickers for the design on the front. There are 3 images each in black or white, and the one on the right reads "We are the granddaughters of the witches you weren't able to burn". The other image not shown I believe to be Baphomet, symbolized by a goat and subtly seen in the pentagram above on the left.

I wanted to mention that I had some fun exploring older system layer skins in my inventory to see how they looked on mesh bodies and heads, leading to my use tonight of a group gift from over 4 years ago. Tonight's skin is the 7 Deadly Skins August 2015 group gift in Marshmellow, the version with cleavage as seen in that vampire bodysuit ;) I think it looks beautiful on the Genus head and Maitreya body, and the only oddity I noticed is the skin around the fingernails, barely visible in any of these photos. I know that Slink included a set of tintable tattoo layers in their Redux body packages for covering the tips of fingers and toes that BOM has made look a bit off, and I just found this similar gift on the marketplace but have not tried it yet. 7DS has been releasing BOM system layers that do have the updated nail areas for at least a month and a half, so their newer creations are perfect for those of us who are trying out Bakes On Mesh. 

I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
