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.

Newness, NYC and Viewer Woes

March 31, 2012

That moment when you get overly excited about something small?  Yeah, that.  I’m almost bouncing in my chair (okay, fine, I’m actually in my bed) because I’m so eager to share this stuff with you guys!  But I spent most of the evening trying not to tear my hair out as I tried to take this pic.  I installed the newest Firestorm viewer about a week ago and it’s not performing for me nearly as well as the last release.  So, while I tried to play with DoF and some WL settings, SL choked and sputtered and eventually died, but not before I got one snapshot.  One.  So that’s what you’re getting!

So, there’s a new brand in town and I’m in love with the mesh designs!  {bilo} is having a grand opening sale until… April 8th, I think.  All of their mesh items are 100L, tattoos are 50% off and everything else is 50L!  This dress is a combo of mesh and system clothing and I was shocked and elated to see how well they flowed together.  Some of the best fitting mesh items I’ve worn yet!  Goodness… I must really want you to get over there to check them out because I’m actually getting a SLURL for y’all.  LOL

I’m also in love with a couple of new, exclusive releases that you can find at the Dressing Room Blue.  The sleek pony and fedora hair from LoQ and the sweet Atomic skin made me squee and I had to have them.  Lordy mae…  I must be more excited than I thought, I’m all benevolent and stuffs.  Here’s your taxi to TDRB.

Oh!  And I almost forgot:  This New York City sim was lovely.  I’ll definitely head back there if I need another clean, urban backdrop.  (Although, I’m not sure it’s all that New York-y…  Isn’t the LOVE art/statue/thingum in Philly?)

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.
