52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Avocado

March 29, 2012

You know the saying “Haste makes waste,” right?  Yeah…  that.  I hate rushing through something only to realize all of the things that you did wrong or could have done better.  And yeah, I could redo it, but…  Just don’t judge this pic too harshly, okay?  I actually kind of love it (Chloe’s face is just too sweet!), but there are so many things wrong with it I don’t even know where to start.

Anyhoo…  Avocado!  I’m making my way through the color weeks, even if I am a little behind.

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Dandelion

March 8, 2012

I’m playing a bit of catch-up with my color challenge, but I’m getting there.

The focus for this color isn’t just about the look, it’s about this lovely vignette from Zoe’s Garden.  Adele Rhiadra makes me so happy when she creates these little meadows (her Autumn Island is one of my other favorites).

I wasn’t really thinking about it when I was putting this shot together, but Chloe often helps me work through my thoughts while I’m blogging, and today she brought my attention to the fact that spring is right around the corner – daylight saving time is this weekend!  I know most of us haven’t had a “real” winter, and I don’t know about you, but I think I’m subconsciously yearning for spring.  Chloe’s outstretched arms and closed eyes made me realize that I am looking forward to spring.  Embracing it, even.  I’ve had a lot of changes going on in my RL and change is always hard for me.  Change is a scary thing, but it has to happen.  So, as the season changes, hopefully I’ll be welcoming whatever blossoms in my life as much as I’m looking forward to the first dandelions poking their heads out of the grass.

(How spoiled by mesh are we??  I grumbled about this system skirt the whole time I had it on!  LOL)

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.
