'Made to Fit' prim lashes - Sophistishapes and Talon Faire

Prim lashes - the scourge of Second Life, right??  I mean so many of us have tried them, struggled for hours to get them to fit, and given up, screaming with frustration.  They DO look good though, don't they?  If only there was an easy way to fit them to your avi and get the results you see above - well, here's the kicker, now you can... :)

Sophistishapes and Talon Faire have got together to give you the ideal solution to stunning eyelashes - Talon Faire, known throughout the lands of Second Life for high quality lashes has pre-fitted a range of beautiful eyelashes to the shapes from Sophistishapes - you can be sure they'll have the perfect fit, first time, every time.

Up until now, I'd found lashes made for lovely photo's, as long as I kept straight on to not show the fiasco I'd made, fitting them, but next to useless for everyday wear - these, laid down by an expert in the field, are just wonderful.  You get three beautiful sets tailor made to suit your preffered Sophistishape shape, and they work in with the recommended skin so well, too.

Having worn Lily and Maria for quite a while, I'd thought there wasn't much I could do to improve them - these lashes are just the most brilliant finishing touch to an already polished package.  Well done, Talon Faire and Sophistishapes - another great idea :)

Drop on down to Sophistishapes and take a look at the range of lashes available - they're nothing but impressive!

Sebastian & David - Two of the best...

As an avid participant in one of the larger fashion groups in Second Life, I often hear males complaining they don't have the opportunities to look good that female avi's do.  Just take a look at these two luscious boys - seriously - I hear daily from guys in little more than their startup Avi that they don't know how to look good - for L$1000 you get the shape, and step by step instructions on assembling the gorgeous avatar you see in the image.  You will need a skin, hair, eyes, etc, but I can't begin to tell you the response you will get to an avatar styled by Sophistishapes - Sophia *really* knows her stuff.  And girls, get your boys to try this out - they really are THAT good!!!

You can see the full range of Sophia's shapes at Sophistishapes - excellent avatars for both guys and girls - and as you can see from David & Sebastian, and the various images below there is a huge variety of looks and styles - evening wear too - come on down, and take a look - you deserve it.

Till next time,

Maria - another stunner...

I have had the very definite pleasure of wearing Maria for a few days now, and I've got to say she's an absolute stunner, Sophia has given her complete, utter, classical beauty.  Her shape is flawless, lovely curves, perfectly proportional, and downright hot - I've mentioned before the compliments I've had from various shapes, and skins, but nothing like this, ever :)  If you want to look good, Maria is a great way to go about it...

As always, Sophia gives all the styling details you need, skin, hair, eyes, even a recommended AO, etc.  Her offerings are really polished, and give brilliant results - I'd urge you to drop into Sophistishapes and take a look for yourself

Curtis - just wow

Oh my gosh, look at Curtis - it seems like each successive release from Sophistishapes just gets better and better, and Curtis is definitely no exception to the rule.  I've spent some time drooling, ummmm, I mean *looking* over his pic, and I'm nothing but impressed - I love the fine trail of body hair emphasising the shape of his chest and those gorgeous abs - Sophia REALLY knows her shapes, bringing out all the best in the skins she chooses to work with.  I know she spends a lot of time perfecting her shapes to make sure you don't end up with the sharp angles seen so often that pull the reality out of virtual reality - I mean, just look at that face.
Sophistishapes gives you the shape you see in the pic, plus a full style card to set up Curtis EXACTLY as you see him in the pics - all for just L$1000.  Guys, trust me, that's a bargain to be able to look as good as this - you just know you're gonna look hot when you let Sophistishapes help.

Come on down to Sophistishapes and take a look through the whole range - you're sure to find something impressive :)

Wow, look at Lauren... a distinct step from the classically stylised beauty of Lily and Sinitta, Lauren features a stunningly cute skin and a really fresh, untamed look with her wild red hair. 

Sophia has clearly put every bit of her skill into play to bring us Lauren, the shape is spot on and startlingly clean, I'd love to be able to 'see' the lines I'd like to put into a shape rather than come up with something that 'works' - it's a talent, indeed.

I often help new avatars along in SL -  used to tell people to allow somewhere between 3-5000 lindens to put together a top notch Avi - these days I often tell them to start with a look at the offerings from Sophistishapes - the shape, and style card is a brilliant first step on the road to a truly stunning avatar - why not drop on into The Store and take a look for yourself??

Adonis... need I say more???

Adonis.  Aptly named, isn't he??  I seem to remember something about Adonis being a mythically good looking male, capable of making blonde Aussie girls drool - or maybe that's just this one??

It's so tempting to make an alt with Adonis, except then I'd spend all my time 'dating' myself.  (Yeah, that's a socially acceptable term for what I'd be doing, isn't it???)  Ok, so he's hot - all of the shapes from Sophistishapes are - he has tone and definition and stunning eyes that seem to pierce right into your head, and such lush, pliant, kissable lips - ummmm, where was I again??  Oh, yeah... Sophia *really* knows what she's doing with this.  And she makes incredibly hot men - and women.  A thousand linden for the succulent shape, and a style card giving you all the secrets you need to make your avatar look that good - well, seriously, you're stealing all that for the price of a cup of coffee - or possibly a cup of coffee and a piece of cake if you go to the right coffee shops.  Either way, honestly, it's a bargain.

You can visit Sophistishapes in world, and see the full range of shapes and style cards available from Sophia here  Make the trip, it's worth it - and lets face it, your Avi deserves it :)

A luscious look - Sinitta

There are times you just have to love SL - I'm sitting here pondering exactly why we spend our time in a virtual world, and then new mail from Sophia pops up, with the lovely, languid, luscious Sinitta in it.  An instant reminder of the why - no matter what our flaws, our looks, our self esteem, our bad hair day or just plain 'why bother'iness - we can look like this, anytime.  The only big problem with that is being ABLE to look *this* good - and that's where Sophia comes in with her range from Sophistishapes.

Imagine your very own stylist telling you which bits work together to give you a complete, stunning look... THAT is what Sophistishapes provides, as well as the totally gorgeous shape, you get all the details from what amounts to your personal SL shopper.

The depth Sophia manages to give to the skins she chooses, by carefully designing a shape to give the maximum impact is akin to magic to me - I have my shape, and I choose skins that work well to give me 'my' style - they look how I want to look - but to be able to put together such a range of diverse shapes, looks... each one an individual person all of their own - that is 'style'.

Drop in to Sophistishapes, take a good look at what Sophia can do for you - it's worth the trip, I promise :)

Jag & Soraya...

You know, looking at what Sophia does is bad for my drool glands.  Seriously.  These pictures hit my inbox and I end up sitting there, stunned, again.  Here for your delectation are two of her very latest releases, the luscious Jag, and delectable Soraya.

Jag, as you can see, is pure unadulterated hotness in motion.  Well, ok, he's not 'in' motion right there, it's a picture - but picture him moving.  Ummmm, not like that, we only have physics on breasts so far - but picture the REST of him moving.  (OK, you can picture that bit moving - *I* did.)  Now, look at the rest - isn't he stunning?  The jawline.  The abs.  Those gorgeous eyes.  Sophia will tell your guy (or you, for the guys reading this) EXACTLY how to get this look.  Do him a favour.  Do yourself a favour -you've spent a lot of time and effort in making yourself look good, right??  Don't you deserve a hot guy who's every bit as luscious?  Introduce him to Sophistishapes, let HIM be his best, too

I love this.  I just recently gave myself a makeover and went blonde again - followed by another makeover and back to brunette. Ummm, then blonde, red, and brunette again. With blonde tips. OK, so I'm a chameleon that stepped on a lava lamp sometimes, but I love the look that Sophia can give her avi's - no matter what shape and skin and hair, and outfit I put together, I always end up... well... Jess.  Each of Sophia's shapes and styles are such distinct 'people' - so clearly defined a look - and a little bird tells me she's including styles for evening wear and other clothing.  If you want to look good, really good, and you just don't have the fashionista gene, Sophia now gives you everything you need to star in your own show.  Live Second Life to the fullest, come on down to the store and browse the range.

Bootilicious Beth and Temptuous Theo

Oh so busy!  I forgot to put up my little vixen Beth who slinks onto my shelves so elegantly.  Her Mediterranean looks are sure gonna have those heads turning, no doubt.  Great feedback on her.... and now takes pride of place in my store next to one of my favourite shapes so far (even though I say so myself), Theo.  He kinda makes me stare blankly at the screen now he's all done!  In fact, i'm gonna check the rules, to see if you can partner yourself!  Although, thinking about it, what a hawt couple Beth and Theo would make..... Wow!

Coban, Max & Etienne

Oh boy, just look at these guys.  I'm beaming like the cheshire cat right now, but I'm just not sure if I should go have a cold shower NOW so I can write coherently, or have one after I finish.  Serious sexiness here, I really don't know what Sophia was trying to do handing this trio to me, I'm a drooling mess of wanton harlot right now.  OK, close look, let's start with Coban:

/me sighs, gazing at Coban.
(Well I did - I mean, seriously, look at him.  Such a soulful face on a lean, taut masculine body.  So many guys on SL need a makeover like this - I know us girls are the money spending demographic, all trying to look our best, comfort shopping and trying to attract our mate - but look at Coban - how much harder would we try to attract one like this.  Boys???  Seriously.  Go see Sophia - get her to do *this*, for you.

I'm sorry, I'm going to sound like a blonde here (well I *am* blonde, so it's kind of habitual) but those glasses Max is wearing are doing it for me - Max is doing it for me too, but those glasses are way cute.  This is just typical of how well Sophia puts all the details together with these shapes and styles.  Such luscious abs, too - can't you just feel how they'd ripple under your fingertips as you dragged them over his torso? 

Oh my.  Etienne's a lover.  I can tell from his look on those two side shots.  It's the casual elegant tilt of the head as he looks at you, he's just thinking bad, bad things under that lock of hair.  Again, a stunning set of abs, not as pronounced as Max but still showing excellent muscle definition.  The shape of Etienne's face is just screaming 'European' at me - I have no idea why, but I like it.

Honestly, guys - I know, on average, you don't spend as much on SL as us girls - you're too busy chasing us girls.  Do yourselves a huge favour - come to Sophistishapes, get a look like this and we're much easier to catch. :)

Till next time,

The Best of SL

I had to buff my nails and yet blush just a little bit to see a post on the Best of SL magazine yesterday all about Sophistishapes.  My wonderful friends at the Wild Coast, Sav Lanzet and Padraig Ashbourne put together this wonderful piece after visiting the Skin/Shape Expo where Sophistishapes has a booth displaying my entire range and latest releases, not yet out in my main store. 

Take a peek at (September archive)

Head down to the Expo.... designers have all put up various of their products making sales donations to the Susan G. Komen cancer research charity .....and a chance to see the latest and greatest works of the skin and shape world. 

See you there
Sophia <3

Lima, Lily and Freya

Wow. Actually, strike that...
WOW!!! Yep, WOW!!!
Really, that HAS to be the first thing I say here, because I'm just very impressed with what Sophia has on offer. I've seen a number of people offering alternative shapes, sometimes to go with particular skins, I've seen people offer makeovers, and style cards for particular looks - but I haven't seen anybody with it all quite as polished as Sophia Rossen and Sophistishapes.

What a dark haired beauty Lima is - I love that she's been dressed with such a pretty, clean tattoo, too. Elements of style such as the luscious lashes, fine hair and clear eyes all give a look to be envied - Sophia certainly knows what she's doing here.

Lily, to be honest, is how I'd have loved my Second Life avatar to have been. She's now an extension of me, and truly has her own image (ok, so it's often that of a chameleon, but it's still an image) - but if I'd had the opportunity to 'be' Lily from the start, I'd have jumped at it.

Last of the trio I was shown, and definitely not least, is Freya. Scarily, I used to work with a Freya several years ago, and this avatar is startlingly close to her look - Sophia seems to have a real talent for putting together a complete package that looks very realistic. Her shapes compliment the skins extremely well, hair, eyes, all the details come together to give an almost magical result.

You can find Sophistishapes in world at:
and if you read this before Kmadd Skin/Shape Expo 09 is over, you can get straight to Sophia's stand at:

I'll be back in a few days with three of the very cutest guys I've seen on SL... *yum*

Sophistishapes was opened in June this year, as a result of my almost compulsive buying of skin and hair for which I am now receiving counselling! The first shop was opened at the infamous and fabulous Kaiya Islands Naturist Resort, where in my view, a high quality skin is almost compulsory, since pretty much a tattoo is the only "clothing" allowed.

I style my shapes in only the very best skins, hair and accessories, creating the shape specifically around the skin. So many times a fantastic skin can be ruined by a badly designed shape. All my products contain one of the most sexy modifiable shapes in SL and styling card. The styling card gives complete details of all skin, hair, eyes, lashes etc. and landmarks to recreate the exact "look" seen on the salesboard.

It is the hope that you find exactly the "look" that you want at Sophistishapes, but if not I am more than happy to do custom work to create that personal touch or even amend an existing shape to suit.

Since the successful opening of Sophistishapes, I have opened stores at several other locations but the main store can be found at Take a browse in the relaxing and classy atmosphere there while you choose from the selection of sophisticated "looks" created for both males and females.

Sophistishapes ...... not just a shape store!
