Once you have your new Andrej skin and shape that I blogged here, you need to dress him up. I’ve tried a range of different looks, here’s the first:

Pants from Sn@tch, boots from Hoorenbeek
Skin and shape, Andrej, from Ugly Duck
Hair: Cody from Buried

It is difficult to find not only a good young male skin, but a quality shape to go with it. I’ve found both!
Fade Lei from Ugly Duck has released ‘Andrej’ skin pack and shape specifically designed for this skin.
The shading on the skin has to be seen to be believed. I urge you to pop along to Ugly Duck and demo the skin
The shape and skin is perfect if you are looking for a teen male or femboi. Fade has also released her first selection of makeups – lips – which fit perfectly with these skins, along with her other recent releases. Eyes and cheeks to follow soon!
And while I’m at it, Ugly Duck also has a $250L sale on at the moment, for older skins. These are still light years ahead of many others as to quality, so truly worth your $$$.
Skins: All skins and shapes shown, both new release and sale items are from Ugly Duck
Hair: Hair from Dura
Jewellery: Maria set from R A Crystal at the Accessories Fair 2011
Clothing: Semeret Silks from Illusion at the Accessories Fair 2011

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.

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

“My idea was based around if aliens witnessed our world then this is how i imagine they’d react 😦
Seeing wars, famine, Religion, destruction of the enviroment etc” – Fade Lei, creator and owner of Ugly Duck
This brings us to part II of the Ugly Duck unique design for Culture Shock
This shows the skin Lily Wept using my own eyes
And using the eyes included in the pack. These are in my opinion the most realistic tears available in world.
