52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Folly

February 24, 2012

Yes, folks, I AM still doing the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  While the rest of you might be all dark raspberrying or even dandelioning, I’m playing with folly.  And let me tell you…  Between Rezzie’s sweet little dress, this amazing Amacci hair from the Festival of Sin and the tough/cute leggings from Pink Lip Gloss…  This color was heavenly for me.  Oh, and this is the first snap I took, too.  All around a good thing.  :)

Now, don’t forget, the Festival runs through March 3rd, so you’ve only got about another week to get over there and check out the sinning.

But we’ve got some good stuffs coming up, so don’t be too sad that the event is almost over.  The Fresh Unknown Hunt starts on March 1st!  I have oodles of boxes waiting for me, so I’m sure I will be showing you guys some great gifts from the new creators and designers out there!

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Alice Blue

February 21, 2012

I’m falling behind on my WoCC.  Again.  I was going to make a pose for this, but time just got away from me.

Anyway, I dug a little bit into the color Alice Blue and made some mentions of Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter, the US Navy and the musical/film Irene.  This is my little homage to the iconic Irene revival poster featuring Debbie Reynolds.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux – Patina

February 2, 2012

A patina is the accumulated changes in surface texture that occur over time.  This process is easily seen in cases like the Statue of Liberty, which display the characteristic green color that inspired this week’s challenge color.  Less obvious than the shiny copper to dull green-blue transition, anything can acquire a patina as it ages – your favorite antique rocking chair, the stone steps leading up to your house of worship, the heirloom lucky coin that you carry in your pocket and rub between your fingers.  I’ve been feeling more than a little worn around the edges and used up for the past couple of months and, though you can’t see it, my patina is changing.  Time alone takes its toll, add a little academic stress, career anxiety, emotional turmoil and all the other daily environmental factors that rub and grind and scrape at the surface (and deeper) and it’s clear to me that my shiny exterior has been dulled and colored.  But I keep reminding myself of the grandeur that our lady liberty now possesses because of her patina and it keeps me moving forward, looking ahead to the day I find myself swathed in a new shade of me.

Wow.  Got a little more than you planned on there, huh??  On to the good stuff:

RezIpsa Loc has, once again, created a handful of perfect items with the 52WOC challengers in mind, the amazing cracked tattoo layer that inspired this post is from the delightfully dark Nomine and the talented Photos Nikolaidis made the startling and gorgeous eyes I’m wearing.

52 Weeks of Color – Iron

January 26, 2012

I usually like to focus on the clothes a bit more than this when I’m doing the WoCC, but I changed it up and focused on focus.  Yeah, that’s what I meant to say.  I was fiddling with the Depth of Field settings as well as my WL settings, intending to play more than anything else, but…  I’m using the result as my Iron.  I think it’s kind of lovely actually.  <self-deprecating comment removed>  So here it is, uncropped and unfussed with.

Oh!  And how about this gorgeous creation from SoliDea Folies??  I absolutely lovelovelove getting dolled up in these gowns and costumes.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux – Electric Indigo

January 23, 2012

Electric Indigo.  Really??  This round of colors is might kill me.  But, to stave off the dying, we’re going to have to get creative.  Despite RezIpsa Loc‘s releases that coordinate with our color weeks, I couldn’t find anything in my inventory that suited me.  And Rezzie did an amazing pic herself and I just couldn’t compete with it, so I went a completely different direction.

As I was searching the net for inspiration, I was reminded that indigo is the color of the sixth chakra, or the third eye.  I’m a little lacking in the intuition and clarity department, so I figured this might be a nice little meditative activity for me.  With a bit of  pseudo-research I found that according to Hindu tradition, the sixth chakra is also known as Ajna and the presiding deity is Ardhanarishvara, a half male, half female composite symbolizing all the duality and dichotomy in the universe.

So, this is my VERY loose interpretation of what I’ve read and how it felt to me at the time.  And if I am very wrong about anything, please let me know.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux – Coral

January 18, 2012

I’m late!  But it’s okay.  Because I did it.  And I actually had fun with it despite having such a difficult time finding coral in my inventory.  I try not to buy too many items specifically for the color challenge because, well, I find it less challenging that way.  (And I’m attempting to stop spending so many lindens.)  Anyway, Rezzie Luckstone put out a couple of adorable coral items to help the bloggers.  She’s planning to have an item or two for every color week at her store, RezIpsa Loc.  So yeah, since I’m late, I did go right to her cute tee and tights for this outfit.

I should mention, this Ugly Dorothy Skin can be found at the Seasons Gatcha Winter Edition going on right now and is a steal for a super cute, fresh, innocent skin.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Champagne

January 8, 2012

Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is back!  Time for Part Deux!

And in true Chloe fashion, I’m already late.  It is week one and I am already late.  *sigh*  Oh well, better late than never.  Anyway…

So.  I’m working on getting my blog mojo back.  I’m making sure I keep up with the color weeks.  And I’m going to stop being so hard on myself.  Sometimes a pic is just a pic.  And I’m challenging myself.  I need to take more portraits.  I always take full body shots and I am so jealous of some other folks and their ability to take gorgeous portraits.  So that’s what I’m working on and how I came up with the framing for today’s shot.

I’ve been wanting to blog this dress in all its meshy goodness for a while now, but haven’t gotten around to it.  So here it is.  And I went with laziness and decided that its “champagne” label was good enough for this color week.  Now, I’d never say that it was champagne, but who am I to argue with Maitreya??  lol

The really great thing about taking pics at this distance?  Eyes!  I lovelovelove eyes in SL and while I always credit them, you can’t often see them easily.  When I look at this pic the first thing I see are these great aqua eyes from Agnes Finney‘s Twinkle Eye collection.  There’s a ton of variation in each color pack and they’re all lovely.

(Oh, and my GIMP skillz are getting better, too, no?  I’m a lot better with my touch-ups now.  At least I think I am.  lol)

52 Weeks Of Color – Denim (or Holy Crap, She’s Back)

July 4, 2011

 

 

I’m only a month behind on Luna’s Color Challenge!  I know, I know, it’s pathetic, but what can I say?  I’m back.  I’m going to be catching up on a handful of things in the coming days, so forgive me if I seem a little disjointed.  I have to get through the last few colors (jade, mahogany, mauve and electric blue) of the challenge, give credit to some great review copies I’ve gotten lately and make myself a new blog header, getting to the Hair Fair – among other things!

So I went simple for Denim.  Jeans.  And that’s it.  Sooo sexy.  I think my opinion of this look goes all the way back to Cindy Crawford or some supermodel in a black and white tv ad in the ’90s.  lol

And Dark Mouse.  What  a great jewelry set!  I’m wearing some the goodies Mouse sent out for June, so yeah, I’m late on that too, but better late than never, right??  The Waves and Sun set is great for all summer, so go out and get it!
