Today is an absolute treat for me, there is nothing I love more than going to a store that’s new to me and swooning. Thanks to a request from Meiling in comments, I sent myself off to Kiko Life. Osuntomi Melendez’s store had me oohing and ahing as soon as stuff rezzed.
Osuntomi only makes ethnic skins, and it’s something she does well. They’re like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Really creative, hand drawn skins, I can totally see why meiling is such a fan. The faces are soo cute, and the makeups are lighthearted and FUN! The range is huge, from classic to avantgarde it’s all here at Kiko Life. The tones are excellent, I’ve shown the 2 current darkest.
Guess what………there’s guys skins too, a great alternative to the stock standard everyone wears. So as I do, I got in Osuntomi’s IM box to find out about her, the store and her opinion on diversity in Sl. It’s clearly something she feels very strongly about, and she is certainly doing her bit to give SL residents more choices. I can tell you, she’s an amazing designer and an amazing woman, totally committed to what she’s doing.
Check out the yummy bodies. Beautiful soft tummy, well defined collarbone (another important feature for me) and when hubby saw me in the studio, shooting the pics, he said my butt was pinchable :) I got a sneak peek of some upcomming releases, and I’m so excited to see where the store goes from here. IMHO, it’s a place to watch, and Osuntomi is someone to get to know. Go demo before I kick your butts :P Ash Out.
