Mina Peggy Dark Red Hair

Women’s hair is a really big deal on Second Life. I know women who buy several different kinds of hairs for their avatars a week. It’s a big market with thousands of options to choose from. Women’s hairstyles are such a big deal on Second Life, that the Marketplace even has four separate categories for how to shop for women’s hairs. Hundreds of stores sell women’s hair exclusively. With all that being said, it would be criminal for us not to take a good look at women’s hairstyles at times. So today, we will take a good look at the Peggy hair by Mina.

Peggy is a hairstyle sold by Mina and created by Mina Nakamura that features a unique mesh shape, as well as realistic and brightly colored textures. The store Mina has been on Marketplace since 2006, and the Peggy has been available since early 2015, possibly late 2014. For 250L, does it compete fairly against the massive amounts of competition available on Second? Just judging by this picture, the easy answer is “yes”.

Mina is well known for creating realistic and vibrant hairstyles for women, and the Peggy hair is no exception. This hairstyle is alive and beautiful. It gives a sense of youthfulness yet oddly enough at the same time maturity to the wearer. It could easily be worn with any outfit, any occasion, any event.

The texture work on this piece of hair makes it stand out. With the large market for women’s hair, there is a lot of competition, and with this amount of detail given to the hair, it is guaranteed to make you stand out in a crowd. The rich colors, give you a nice freshly dyed look. Each individual strand of hair can be seen with its own shade and texture to give only the most beautifully crafted realistic look.

As you can see by these pictures provided by my friend Nephilim, panning your camera around 180 degrees will not reveal any flaws with this hair. The back is just as beautiful and well-made as the front. I can see no flaws with the Peggy. Mina is a true artist with this hair. Giving a charming and elegant yet very girlish appearance. Not enough can be said about just how gorgeous this hair is.

The hair drapes organically over the breast of the woman in the photos. With no visual clipping to be seen. Something unique about the Peggy is that there are several sizes included in the folder that indicate exactly where the ends of the hair will rest. If you are a large-breasted woman, do not worry, the Peggy hair has got you covered making sure there is no gap between the hair and the body, yet no clipping between the breast and the hair. For 250L, the average cost of hair on Second Life, this hairstyle has pulled out all the stops and made sure you were getting your money’s worth.

Phenix “Jocey” Formal Dress Gown

On my blog, I intend to go over just about everything that Second Life has to offer. One cannot deny that women’s fashion is one of the biggest, if not the biggest things that Second Life has to offer. Though, I am male and can only speak from a male point of view, I can invite the help of others to give me their feelings about a particular article of clothing intended for women. My friend has provided me with information of her experience of the dress. I will also provide my feelings on the style of the dress.

Phenix is quite a popular women’s clothing brand on the realms of Second Life. Having opened their MP store in July of 2009, they have earned quite a good reputation since then. With excellent prices and an eye for detail, just how well does the the “Jocey’ hold up when it comes to other works by Phenix?

Just looking at the front side of the dress, you will see that the texture quality is phenomenal. The level of detail on this dress is nothing short of spectacular. With realistic textures on the  flexi attachment that flow nicely into the mesh upper body, I feel a sense of awe when viewing these pictures.

The dress has a sense of elegance to it. Something that would really stick out when entering a ballroom. There is just this natural flow when moving in the dress. Nothing on it ever seems to be out of place. The curves aren’t exaggerated like a lot of women’s clothing, but it does show off a beautiful womanly shape. This is a kind of dress you’d wear if you want to turn some heads!

As we look at the back of the dress you can see just how beautifully the flexi attachment moves with the avatar. There is an optional bow attachment for the back of the dress to just add to its charm. Every angle of this dress is just classy.

The “Jocey” will be a great addition to any woman’s wardrobe on Second Life. Suiting any formal event that one could attend. It also has a nice Gothic look to it for those who are interested in vampirism or are a member of Bloodlines.

The only flaw I can really find in this dress is the fact that the shape may have to be edited in order to fit into the dress. The breasts gravity and cleavage may have to be changed to properly fit into the dress. So I can only recommend this dress for those who have a modifiable shape. The price is also a little much, at 399L, however due to the amount of effort put into this dress, I can say that it’s easily worth it.
