How silly looking is Simone?

You may have noticed that I almost never use a mesh head. I own LeLutka’s Stella and Simone, whom you see here today in The Skinnery’s Maite skin in champagne and eyebrows and lipstick from adored. Adored, by the way, is running an advent calendar from now till December 24, which seems to promise all the lipsticks a Catwa or LeLutka mesh head could ever wear. There are also some tempting items on sale. Neither Stella nor Simone is as beautiful as my classic avs Portia and Anorak, who wear only Glam Affair (or old skins from Birdy). GA isn’t doing system skins any more. Neither are they doing enough skins for LeLutka heads for me to put more effort into embracing Simone. This means that I am stuck using my old Glam Affair system skins, which is fine since a lot of them still look good. Fine but ironic: I remain loyal to the product but the producer is no longer making money from me. Feeling convinced that I am going to fall too far behind the times to keep blogging, I headed over into The Skinnery, an old favorite of mine, and searched out something that would work for Simone. That’s when I realized that nothing works for Simone because Simone doesn’t work. I don’t like the included shape and, try as I might, I can’t create a face that doesn’t look cartoony. When I turn on moods and expressions, the contrast between Simone’s silly elastic face and the seriously slinky Lara body is unbearable. And completely unworkable for photos of bondage wear. It’s possible that I will have to create a caricatured body to go with Simone’s long nose, big eyes and large lips. Today, however, I am happy that a little bit of vintage styling made my cartoony Simone appear sexy.
