The Unbra line is still very nice and I've recommended them to many people, including an alt of mine that ponied up the $Lindens to get a set. But I was never super happy that all the faces seemed to have liberally applied makeup. Not just eye shadow, but a generous smoothing foundation. In Real Life, I own one lipstick and I always have to dig for it when I need it (funerals, weddings, and the very rare actual date night). I really wanted a makeup-free skin.
The Skinnery (SLurl) had a nice skin that fit the bill for the September Arcade Gacha and I would love to have used that one, but I gave it away and figured I'd never hit the jackpot with getting just the right one again. I kept pining for updates from Curio and kept my eyes open. When Angela, my wife, started looking for skins I insisted she visit The Skinnery and while there I grabbed a few demos myself. That was a few months ago and I finally took the plunge after looking at the just-released Curio skins I've been awaiting (see here).

I'm also using the opportunity to go back to elf ears full-time and I might change my preferred eyes to something a bit more realistic. I don't see any need to alter my face or other body numbers, but I might tweak my height down a notch and finally pack away hair I haven't worn in a very long time. All this hullabaloo but I'll still me me, Uccie.
