In my part of the world, today is Sunday, 8th May – Mothers Day. Celebrated at different times around the world, it is significant everywhere to recognise and give thanks for our mothers. To all the mothers, and those who have had a mother – that should include everyone – I wish you a wonderful day today.

As a child, Mothers Day in our household meant breakfast in bed for Mum (and Dad too) usually consisting of lukewarm milky coffee, porridge and half cooked crumpets with plum jam an inch thick. This was followed by the presentation of hand drawn cards that my sisters and I had agonised over for hours and hours hiding under the kitchen table so Mum would never guess what we were doing (!).

Following a sumptuous baked dinner (leg of lamb with all the trimmings) and fruit, jelly and icecream for dessert (quite a treat) at lunchtime, we then made the annual journey to the Woronora cemetery in the southern suburbs of Sydney, to visit the extended family we had never known. Grandparents, aunties, uncles and if we were allowed to wander around, we could even find great grand parents. With armloads of white chrysanthemums, we roamed the old headstone area (Dad’s family) through to the Rose Garden (Mum’s family) to prettify the graves and memorials while our father weeded a year’s worth of over growth. We then played chase up and down the narrow paths, hide and seek with our father, and then lined up to sing to our relatives that we were sure drifted among us, unseen as ghosts or angels.

My own mother died on Mothers Day, while I was pregnant with my child who would die as an adult last year. In all those years since her death, this day has been one of sadness and memories, until this year. Losing my own child seems for me, to have completed a circle of grief begun so long ago. This year, my children whisked me away for an early Mothers Day dinner last night, and this evening we will take a trip to the cinema, and take up a full row – we are a large family. We will remember their brother and my son with silly stories of the jokes he would play on us, and his gleeful chuckle as he laughed at the world.

How wonderful the english language is, when we realise that the term ‘A Lamentation of Swans’ refers to a group of swans. A perfect title for my post, I thought :)

A Lamentation of Swans

Fade Lei has released her latest series, ‘Swan’. Above is the Beth range, the ginger shade

A Lamentation of Swans

And these are the Emily range, the red shade

A Lamentation of Swans

Fade has also made an excellent all over body freckle tattoo, shown on the left, and without for comparison. It is subtle and delicate, certainly one of the best I have seen.

And finally, the Ugly Duck shapes. Above is the Sophie shape. Each pack comes with A, B and C cup. This is because each increase in size is not just a matter of moving one slider. Fade aims to have her shapes realistic, thus as breast size increases, so does gravity.

Skins: All skins available from Ugly Duck

Shapes: Sophie pack from Ugly Duck

Hair: from Elikatira

Pink lingerie: from Deetalez

Other lingerie: Luxuria (closed)

Clothing: Bandeau and leggings from Action

Poses: Behavior Body

The much anticipated new series from Fade Lei of Ugly Duck has arrived, the Swan series. Below you can see Emily in neutral tone with makeup

Emily The Swan

The exquisite features and delicate hand painting that has created this skin show the true talent of an artist

Emily The Swan

The body of the skin has new shading to give a more lifelike look. The shape I am wearing is Sophie, also from Ugly Duck and available separately

Emily The Swan

These skins are not cheaply made template skins; many hours of painstaking pixel-by-pixel work has gone into them. I urge you to try demos at Fade’s store.

Hair: YNO421 from Boon, as is hairbase

This brings us to part II of the Ugly Duck unique design for Culture Shock

And using the eyes included in the pack. These are in my opinion the most realistic tears available in world.
