A little Aleida

“Let’s keep ’em fresh and lovely…like the spring,” my editor said, impressed with his own metaphor. I complied happily, picking out the perfect dress: Orion’s custard-coloured baby-doll, which is a donation item at Culture Shock.

Aleida Rhode kindly set out a bloggers’ review pack for her new Asian skin, Sumiko, which is available now at the Skin and Shape Expo. I slipped Bini into my favourite makeup, aptly named springtime.

Sumiko comes with hairbase and cleavage options. The cleavage, which my editor didn’t want me to show—this being a family blog with a friendly name and a wholesome outlook—is very tasteful. No sticky boobs here. This cute shape with elf ears is free from Magic Avi’s booth at the expo.

Try as I might, I couldn’t properly represent Aleida’s new line without sending one of my models downtown. But it’s not opium she’s looking for, it’s erm chao su bao and chicken-foot soup. Speaking of birds, the spiky Peacock earrings are new from Finesmith, and they come in yellow and green as well as the orange worn here. This shape, Amelie, is another one of Savoir Faire’s appealing bodies available at SASE.

Don’t forget that some Skin and Shape Expo creators are offering donation items with 50% of the proceeds going to Direct Relief International.
