A couple of months ago, I came up with a skin called Rio. Its has a fair Caucasian tone, described by some as distinctly “Northern/Eastern European”, “exquisite”, and my favorite comment, “a supermodel skin on SL that’s memorable.”

_AR Rio "Another Realism"  by [IC-Skins]

Thus, arises the .:RIO:. line - “Memorable SKINS to become YOU.”

I decided to play with some sketch layers used as eyes and lips in some of my earlier releases. (The devout should be able to see them ;-)) To my surprise, each skin looked distinctly different, and the tone works well, as seen in:

Gia, with warm expression-ful eyebrows, available in:

makeup variations:
IC-Skins Rio Gia Neutral

and “Avant Garde” showgirl mode:
IC-Skins Rio Gia Avant Garde

Gae, whose features give her a formidable and venerable composure:
IC-Skins Rio Gae Neutral Pink

Gina, who fits as supermodel or an unforgettable pretty girl:
IC-Skins Rio Gina Neutral Red
IC-Skins Rio Gina Neutral pink

The .:RIO:. line also comes with a selection of eyeshadow colors to bring out your eyes, a selection of lipstick choices (and also directions for custom makeup requests), - each available as individual packs, and also (with discount) row, column, and “all” packs. Two
body choices are available with each, and these body skins will actually be released as psd and textures soon - along with tutorials on customizing your avatar body skin. Stay tuned to the IC-Skins group for details!

All photos shown are unedited SL shots - color, shadow, and everything, looks exactly like they would look on SL using Second Life 1.19.0 (5) Feb 28 2008 17:18:12 with the default [IC-skins] face light included. You can also get a similar look using the regular/
current SL viewer with atmospheric shaders turned off in edit > preferences > graphics

Enough 2d-ness, drop by the main store to see these skins in 3d… on you!

Ina Sedai
Ina Sedai is my character in Tar Valon. Here are her specs.~OOC Attributes~
SL Name: Ina Centaur
SL Join Date: 10/31/2006 11:59 pm…

~Character Attributes~
Character’s Full Name: Ina Centaur
Ajah: Brown
Age: Unknown
Home Country: Cairhien

~Character Details~
She’s the type of girl who can lock herself up in a cloister for half a lifetime, reading and cross-referencing, and writing.

She likes books.

She extremely dislikes unwanted visitors, and is said to have come close to using the One Power as a weapon to ward off solicitors.

~Character History~
They say that there’s a Waygate hidden in the basement of her ancestral home, and that she spends much of her sabbatical time studying it and venturing to worlds beyond.

Little is known of the Aes Sedai named Ina Centaur. Nothing is known for certain other than that she’s from a wealthy family in Cairhien.

There are tales, however…

It is said that her parents, wealthy nobles, had been appaled that their only daughter was “cursed” with the One Power, and would think nothing of having her sent off to Tar Valon. The Aes Sedai who found her had had to use the One Power to protect herself from her family’s mercenaries, and to steal Ina away.

It is also said that she became very drawn into herself, would often fast just to spend long hours reading uninterrupted, when she saw a girl who looked just like her chained to an a’dam and forced to kill another, when she ran away a novice.

It is believed that she has returned to her ancestral home to study a Waygate.

Other Alts:
Her twin sister, who was separated at birth (stolen by the goodwife, who was a darkfriend), Ina Minotaur is rumored to be a darkfriend and disciple of Lanfear.
