Color is Fluid

June 28, 2012

The 52 Weeks of Color Challenge fizzled faster than it did last year.  *sigh*  Well, I’m still trying to catch up (slowly) and this is my Pueblo.  Yes, there’s actually some pueblo in there!  It’s in the middle part of the ombre on my RezIpsa Loc tights.  Really!

A last minute reminder for those of you out there who haven’t made it yet:  The first round of Fluid is still going on!  You’ve only got two more days to get over there, though!  This pose is from Pekka’s sweet little Eva pack and I just love it.  It helps look Chloe look at least a little embarrassed about this color debacle.

Meshing Around in Pistachio

May 31, 2012

Mesh, mesh and more mesh!  This hunt is so great.  It’s a really perfect opportunity to try out mesh clothing and to bring attention to decorative mesh objects and structures.  I have a good number of mesh items in my inventory, but I’m still finding that I have some trouble fitting mesh clothing.  I’ve been procrastinating on really figuring out the fit and finish and have mostly been depending on alphas to make things work for me.  I’m going to take another look at the standard sizing and see if I can’t get some of my mesh glitches worked out.  I will report back about this little venture!  But, in the meantime, enjoy some Sakide and Trompe Loeil gifties from the Ego Co.’s Mesh Around hunt:

Oh!  And I’m totally cheating and skipping ahead on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, Part Deux.  This is serving as my pistachio.  With all the green in the background and the perfect dots on the furniture, you can hardly tell that the sweet little flower-patterned dress is the lightest shade of pistachio as well.  Anyhoo…  Meshy pistachio.  Close enough for government work.

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Seashell Peach

April 14, 2012

Well, I’m on time this week. Woohoo for me!  And because of that, I decided I could fudge on the color a little bit, lol.  I don’t see any peach in this color, I’m sorry.  I can picture it in my mind, like the inside of a conch shell, but the swatch just didn’t do it for me.  And I didn’t edit my hair.  I’m a bad, bad blogger.  *sigh*

Ah well, the good news is that it’s almost time for the Pose Fair!  The event will start at 12pm slt on April 15th and features over 100 posemakers from across the grid.  It’s such a big deal this year, they need two sims to contain all the goodies!  RubyStarlight Writer’s Exposeur is one of my favorite brands and she has some great new poses in store for the fair.  I’d have to blog a helluva lot more to feature all of her stuff, but today I’m using one of her sweeter poses that go right alongside the strong and sexy (and sometimes even skanky, but in a good way) collections she has available.

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – St. Patrick’s Blue

March 30, 2012

I think that running late on this one actually helped me out, lol.  Since St. Paddy’s day is over, I wasn’t hung up on the color green!  Anyway, I did a little playing with shadows and projectors and DoF and PS today.  I’m still trying to get the hang of shadows and DoF, but I’m more comfortable than I used to be.  Now, playing in PS…  That’s a whole different story.  I consider myself a skilled beginner when I’m working in GIMP, but PS is like learning a whole new language.  So I didn’t do anything fancy for this pic, just a feathered, rounded crop like I always do (even that wasn’t as easy as I would have liked, lol, nor did it turn out as well as I would have liked).

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Aquamarine

March 30, 2012

I had to invite a very special av over for this color of the challenge.  This is her blog debut and she was a little nervous about showing her face in public, but the lovely Beryl Button made for a wonderful model.  (Get it?  They go together because aquamarine is the blue-green version of beryl?  Anyway, that IS how she ended up choosing her name – after deciding that Aquamarine was a bit… flamboyant.)  And don’t ask what they’re doing in the kitchen, Chloe just needed a place to sit so I could use the Exposeur pose I picked up at the 50/50 sale.  Make sure you get over there, the 50L or 50% off sale goes for just two more days.

Of course, RezIpsa Loc came to my rescue for this color by offering a sweet little bodysuit with the sophisticated touch of houndstooth accents.  Just about everything Chloe has on are her old standbys, but Beryl is wearing some new (to me) brands that had some too-good-to-be-true deals on the marketplace.  She’s supposed to be wearing a tank from Petticoat Lane (from Glitterati’s Katey Coppola), but it was taking its sweet time to be delivered.  The Simplestuff pumps were 25L and the jeans from Pd were 10L.  Crazy, huh?  *crosses my fingers and mumbles pleasedon’tbecopybotted pleasedon’tbecopybotted pleasedon’tbecopybotted*

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)
