Today I want to introduce you to a skin designer that you might not have had the chance to meet. Her name is Nikita Fride, and her store is titled the same. Nikita Fride is a makeup artist, creating skins with an emphasis on different makeups. She was the first designer to create skins based on a real cat’s face photo, male skin with lapel kiss, and diamond drops in skin. While her skins range from the most sinister and bruised skin with cuts, to the most perfect angel makeup; I decided to show off some of the more “fashion friendly” skins that she has to offer.

Speaking with Nikita is a wonderful experience and you can quickly see the passion she holds for all her designs. For the interview and pictures of her new releases click below.
SugarKane: Why did you first join SL?
Nikita: As a good student of fashion, new technology, made me curious to know the Second Life.
SugarKane: What is your best selling item?
Nikita: Certainly, the most bloody, bold or sophisticated. I think they sell more, because they are not common in SL.
SugarKane: What inspires you?
Great question, but vacant reply. Everything and nothing! Let me explain. The inspiration can come, for the night badly slept, or the perfect dream. It can be the music wakes up that me, or the quarrel of the neighbors. It can be a stranger who crosses the street, or the photo of the best friend, may be the meow of my cat loving or my scar to bite him. Inspiration are images and imaginations, acquired randomly. That appear abstract, they mixed and if they transform into ideas, and if they materialize in the ready workmanship.
SugarKane: Define your idea of beauty
Nikita: Beauty is more than an idea. But are Ideals, that we all constantly seeking and experiencing metamorphosis as our current needs.
SugarKane: What are some of your goals related to being a skin designer?
Nikita: I would insatiability produce, more and more products. always thinking on the client, offering new features, creativity and good taste. But they remember, I taste to surprise. Then do not expect predictable and common skins, in store Nikita Fride.
I asked Nikita to create her own Question and Answer and here is what she had to say.
Nikita: Leaving of side the Designer Nikita, how is the personality of this neko called Nikita?
I have a penetrating and watchful eye. Calm movements and thinking fast. Agile in the dark and attitudes often unpredictable, but true. Senses sharp and strong personality, but I am gentle with friends, I always see them smiling and protected. But I am very alert to strangers in, need to observe them before. Curiosity may kill me, but I not have afraid. I prefer see what is the other side. I am so … as a cat,funny or aggressive, smart or lazy, delicate or wild … everything depends on how you look at a cat/neko, or a Catwoman…. Nikita fride
