Hey everyone, I thought I’d just do a quick and simple shoot before I go away from blogging for a month. I knew I had to do a jewelry shoot because I haven’t done one that focused mainly on accessories in a while, and in this post I’m wearing the Turquoise Coral jewelry set from BaUbLeS! by Phe. If you fancy this jewelry set, head down to the main store right away!
So sorry Phe, I haven’t been blogging your items in a while, but I do hope you like this! And for everyone else too, I hope you like it too!
Lastly, happy holidays, and I’ll see you guys in a month! 
Love, Kai

So yellow is probably not a color that is very related to Fall but it was so pretty I decided to blog it for you guys anyway. This dress comes from AZUL, and a limited Sapphire version was shown at the Solaris Fashion Week previously but the good thing is, the other color options are available for purchase at their main store!
I paired the dress with a more neutral and simple looking shoes (took me a rather long time to find the right pair) from Baby Monkey. The Ola Sandals are their group gift, it’s still in the store and there’s a color change HUD so you can pick the color you prefer. I picked the Lindi earrings and necklace from BaUbLeS! by Phe to match the dress as well as the eyeshadow from .charme.
We shot at this sim called Stonehaven Maine, a peaceful town/fishing port with a nice view. Perhaps when you’re there you can stop by the diner, or visit the cafe by the jetty, where I took my photos at! Have fun exploring!
Love, Kai

I hope you guys still remember this look, or at least part of it. For those who don’t recall, the jewelry was featured in an earlier post, Taking The Leap. Now, I’ve taken it one step further and styled a full look around the jewelry. Yes, I styled the look around the jewelry, no kidding.
First, I gotta let everyone know that the Aneko skin that I wear like almost all the time since I got my mesh head and body is now available at the Elysium mainstore, since the anyBODY event has ended. So if you’re like the skin and would want to own it for yourself, you know where to head to.
The amazing Garden State jewelry set from BaUbLeS! by Phe is an old release, like I mentioned before, but you should still be able to find it in the store. I can’t emphasize how much I love it. It looks really regal on anyone, and the way the jade complements the gold just makes me excited! Not forgetting the hair by D!va, which is kinda funny how it really fits into this whole forest/animal theme since it’s called Bambi anyway. It’s is unavailable, unfortunately, but there is a new group gift in the store, which you can find out more about right here.
The cute little lingerie-inspired separates is a original mesh release by BENDER, and I blogged another release by them earlier here, if you recall. I think the creators are really talented, and they always create outfits with interesting silhouettes and beautiful colors. BENDER is a relatively new label and I think it is really worth checking them out and supporting them!
And you might notice I have a friend in the photo too! He belongs to Jackson and he agreed to take part in the photo with me haha. I hope you guys love this photo as much as I do!
Love, Kai

Taking The Leap

So many exciting things have been happening these recent weeks! I know I haven’t had a chance to do a proper post like this to you guys and it’s been the longest time since I had a ModelBehavior post. I guess this post is the post for you guys to keep up with what I’ve been doing.
First, I made it as an official Lybra blogger, yay! Working with Jackson post after post for two weeks, it did pay off. After hitting ModelLook #50, I decided I wanted to take my blog one step further from the usual blogging. I knew I wanted to do something more related to what I’ve always been dreaming about (and you guys do know), being a model. So with every look from #50, I was constantly inspired by editorials from all around the world and sought to create my own version of that. I hope you guys are liking it, cos I do, and I know some of my sponsors do too, so I’m really really glad that I went towards this direction with my shoots.
So now that I’m an official blogger for Lybra, I also made it into becoming a blogger for the Event @ 1st. That also means that there will be more posts from the event to come, I promise. This month’s theme is Anime so it should be quite exciting to show you guys what I’ve done with the Anime/Japanese-inspired items the designers have come up with!
And next, is that I’ve begun to apply to SL publications for jobs. I did apply to some for modeling jobs, some for writing jobs and some for general administrative jobs. I can’t tell you guys anything yet, so if you see my name in any SL publication it means I did get a job! It’s a tease, I know, but what’s the point if there’s no excitement? I would advise you guys to get a job if you don’t have one yet, SL publications are a good place to start if you like to write, or like photography. You get to enjoy what you’re doing, and at the same time get rewarded for it too, not just monetarily but also in terms of recognition!
Moving to the main point, it brings me to the title of this post. And also it explains the photo for this post you see up there. Remember I mentioned in my previous post that I was in the midst of changing my shape and looks? And I didn’t tell you guys the reason for it. Well, here goes…
I’m…
 
 
Joining…
 
 
Miss Virtual World 2016!
 
Now you see how I’m taking the leap? Haha I’ve never thought of myself as someone who can go up against all these well-trained models and talented girls but something in me just said ‘Ok, you know what, let’s do this and give it a shot!’, and so I did it! I changed my shape further and put on my best hair (for now), the Bambi hair, a pretty awesome group gift by D!va, and made myself fashion royalty with the amazing Garden State jewelry set released by Phe a little while ago and went for a photoshoot with Jackson to get the perfect headshot, or at least a headshot good enough to audition for Miss Virtual World. And come on guys, don’t you think Jackson did a really good job with the photo? Love him so much!
This felt good, to be able to talk to you guys and let you know about what I’ve been doing lately in SL. There’s something else I haven’t told you yet, but that needs to be seen to be revealed haha. It will definitely appear soon, in the next few posts! In the meantime, feel free to comment here or contact me in-world if you like, to let me know what you think. Or if you have any experience of yours that you’d like to share with me, I’ll be really glad to talk to you. Don’t be afraid, I don’t bite!
Love, Kai

#65 – Heavy Metal Part 1

I thought I’d try something new this time and focus solely on accessories. I haven’t been doing lots of closeup shots lately and I thought I should make it up to my sponsors, especially Phe (phedre.rexie), since she’s had so many amazing new releases for BaUbLeS! by Phe lately. The necklace comes from an older release, as part of the Destiny set, which includes a crown, headpiece and a pair of earrings. The rings are Phe’s Rihanna-inspired release for the INSPIRATION event, and can now be found in her store
The bracelet is a FINESMITH older group gift, which is still in the store, gotta go grab it before it’s gone! I have on the Dara hair from pr!tty, just wanted to do a shoutout to Karla (karla.marama) for making such pretty hairs (pun unintended!). The sheer top featured here is a past release by NYU (nyunyu.kimono) for FaMESHed, which has now begun setup for the next round.
This is just part 1 of a 3-part editorial, so be sure to keep checking back for the next 2 parts!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, today’s look is undoubtedly a fun one. I even got my photographer, Jackson to be in it! I wanted to showcase this affordable mint jumpsuit from -CH-, which is perfect for the summer season. It is only sold in the Marketplace, and comes in 3 other color options. I chose to style the look with this beautiful hair by enVOGUE Hair and is still being offered as a Subscriber Gift, so head on down and get it right now!
As for my accessories, navy and white colors in the bangles and ring from BaUbLeS! by Phe evoke a nautical feel, also appropriate for summer. I personally have a liking towards nautical stuff, so these accessories were definitely one of my favorites from her! And this pair of Elysium peeptoe stilettos are the best, they even stop traffic! Haha, I’m just kidding, but I do love shoes from Elysium. The color selection is great and the designs are quite versatile. For example, this pair of stilettos can be worn just like how I’m wearing it, or it could be the final touch to a vintage look too.
Well if you take a liking to any of the items in this post, be sure to get them right away! You’ll never know what items will still be available!
Love, Kai

Hey guys, I’m back with another look for you guys! This time it’s a simple look, mainly to showcase the new shoes released by Lybra for Designer Showcase in the month of June (this month!). The Arlie shoes comes in 5 different kinds of wood: Naturals, Opals, White, Chestnut and Cherry, and getting one type of wood choice gets you a hud with 5 different colors. So essentially it’s 5 shoes for the price of 1! And if you wish to collect all 25 pairs, feel free to do so too!
Isn’t my shirt full of swag? I love how it reads ‘BOSS’, makes me feel all badass. This was a release by my friend, Giana Paine of BLOKC for the Gangsta Fair, which has already passed, but lucky for you guys, it’s now available at her store! While you’re there, go check out all the nice outfits she has to offer and grab yourselves the freebies on the tables (try to find all of them!).
I completed the look with the Luna bangle from BaUbLeS! by Phe. This bangle comes with a hud again, and it also offers you 5 different types of metal so you can customise it according to what you’re wearing! I hope you guys like it too!
Love, Kai

Hi guys, as you all might already know, the Penumbra Summer 2015 shows have started. This season, Lybra has a few releases, of which I’m wearing the Gretel gown. This mermaid gown has seams which accent the body (oh so sexy!), and comes with a scarf to match. There are 7 different colors, and you can get them at the Lybra booth at Penumbra S/S 15 (LM below).
I’ve chosen to match this look with the Diamond Leaf Hoops from BaUbLeS! by Phe, a new release for the Ross Fair, to give it the appropriate amount of class and romance. In the case that the event is over, you can still purchase this pair of amazing earrings from Phe’s mainstore here, so no worries!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
Love, Kai
