Autumn is Coming

September 4, 2012

Oh wait, that’s supposed to be “Winter is Coming,” isn’t it…  errmmm…  Anyway…

Autumn IS coming.  The air really is cooling off.  The trees really are starting to change.  September is upon us and the Summer Harvest Hunt is in full swing.  The Ego Co.’s latest hunt is going strong and it’s a bountiful harvest.  Between the new goodies, the seasonal view off her back porch and Elymode’s gorgeous WL setting, Chloe got a little lost in the moment.

A Supersized Sin

February 20, 2012

A bit of fun from the Festival of Sin.  Weather or Not has created a mesh burger that suits me perfectly right now.  I have been ridiculously gluttonous for the past few days and I can’t get enough to eat.  I’d enjoy a supersized everything right now.

Potpourri

January 6, 2012

Sooooo, friends and neighbors, I have a few things to tell you about.  Mostly unrelated items on the docket, but all important to me:

  • Inventory loss
  • Crotch flaps
  • Back to Black
  • Seven Deadlies
  • Fresh Unknowns

First order of business is <insert crying and flailing here> bitching about Linden Labs eating all the *elymode* stuff in my inventory.  WTF?  I’ve heard about the mysterious invy disappearances, but never experienced it before.  Well, now I have.  I think about 4000 items went poof.  I haven’t figured out what else went, but all my *elymode* stuff that was purchased before… last month is gone.  So the sweet little group gift skirt was not accompanied by any coordinating items for today’s post.  Which leads us to our next item on the list.

Ely has made us more meshy goodness!  And this one really is good: mesh crotch flaps on short skirts!  It moves so well with your avatar and since she treats us so well, she left the tushie flap as a regular prim so we can edit it to fit our booties!

Next?  The Back to Black event.  Keira Seerose has taken CHIC Management back to their roots with this event that pays homage to the first mental health awareness event, The Black and Blue Fair.  Back to Black will run from 4pm SLT, February 11th to 4pm SLT, February 29th and features over a hundred brands as participants willing to work within the message and themes of the event and design an exclusive item.

And if you get tired of being good next month, the Festival of Sin will be there to cater to your darker, more debaucherous side.  Running from February 18th to March 3rd, you can find creations inspired by any of the seven deadly sins you’d like to indulge in.

And last for tonight, but not the least, we have the Fresh Unknown Hunt.  This idea is actually really fun.  All the participants in the hunt are new brands/creators/designers and their stores are all in their fledgling moments (less than four months old!).  So make sure you check out the new talent this March!

Shadows and Mesh

January 4, 2012

I’ve been playing with shadow settings in Firestorm lately.  And windlight settings.  And projector settings.  And local lights settings.  And and and.  AND I keep getting… lackluster results.  Anyway, I’ll keep playing.  And you’ll keep being subjected to my attempts and brilliance.  (Ha!  Funneh, I know!)

But speaking of brilliant…  Ely Eilde has been playing with mesh.  Which makes me happy in my pants.  This sweater dress has been out for a little while now, but I hadn’t had a chance to take a pic of it yet.  I have NO idea how I ended up with a shot from behind, but…  that’s what we’ve got.

F*ing Perfect

December 6, 2011

Before I ramble, I’ll just say:  How cute is this little Meli set from *elymode*??  Adorable, as always.  With several piece and layer options, as always.  With amazing details and shading, as always.  With a ridiculous number of color options, as always.  Take a look at this outfit and all of her other designs on the marketplace or inworld.

Now, the ramble.  As I’ve mentioned in my last couple posts, I’m trying to get some pics and posts out there.  I fell out of my rhythm for a little while and I’m not quite sure how to get it back.  One of the ways I’m trying to do that?  I’m going easy on myself.  Or trying.  I judge myself far too harshly, overthink my pics, obsess over tiny details, etc.  I’m not a fantastic SL photographer and that’s fine, but it’s something that I enjoy doing and should allow myself to do without stressing over it.  Gone are the days of extremely long shoots with dozens of pics that all end up on the cutting room floor (for right now, anyway).  Gone are the days of hours spent in GIMP trying to recreate effects that I see from people with years of Photoshop and design experience.  I need to focus on being me and working to MY highest potential, not someone else’s.  Even thinking about it and mentioning it here to you makes me feel… caught with my pants down (or off, in Chloe’s case up there^).  Now, I’ll confess, this simple pic up there did take me two shoots before I got something I was happy with and it’s killing me to post it because it looks like Chloe’s neck is broken, lol, but I did it.  Anyway…  As the ramble gets out of hand, I’ll remind myself (and you, I know I’m not the only one that does this) that I AM f*ing perfect.  In my own way, in this very moment.  And if something goes “wrong,” that imperfection is part of being perfect too.

Fleur du Wicked

October 20, 2011

So, it just so happens that people miss my blog.  Or so I’m told.  And since someone I care about suggested that I get back at it…  Here I am.  I am horrified to realize that Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color challenge is in week fifty while I’m stuck back in week… pfft…  who knows.  I am embarrassed to have been missing hunts and challenges and generous designers as I lost myself in a bit of a stabbity place.  So in the spirit of stabbitiness (unsure) I put together a wicked, angry, fierce little Halloween-esque look that got its inspiration from a fantastic set of eyes by Aymeric Pelazzi of Fleur Du Mâle. Aymeric has a whole line of Alive eyes, which he brings to life by adding prim lights to system eyes.  I popped in the poison colored Drake eyes and totally fell in love with their demonic, inhuman quality and the amazing vivid coloring. I am now in need of some FDM human eyes to wear on a regular basis!

I pulled out some other well loved items from my inventory:  Vita’s Irena hair…  lovelovelove.  SO much fun to photograph.  Ely’s witchy tattoo tint is perfectly done, delivering pretty-ugly flawlessly.  My Gos Curvaceous boots, which are still oh so lick-worthy.  The Memory Wire necklace from the Platinum Hunt (2010!) finally gets to come out and play for a post.  Jux makes sure my body language (please picture Ursula’s hip shake in the Little Mermaid here) says just as much as the rest of me.  And a new love, my Rue horns, get to make an appearance too.

And a close up of the FDM Alive Drake eyes in Succubus.

Nomine Magpie Skin and a TOSL

July 17, 2011

Oooooh!  Newness!

Munchflower Zaius has just released her new Magpie skins at Nomine and they are absolutely lovely.  They still have that Nomine feel to them, but she’s redone a lot of the shading and redrawn the lips completely.  The larger packs (that I had to buy, I couldn’t pass it up!) have makeup, cleavage and teeth/no teeth options included, while the small packs feature one skin and the associated options.  I had to have the sexy Carbon makeups for the China skintone, and I’m wearing the “light” version with my ever-present Cheap Makeup lashes.

The layered tops are from Acid & Mala and are featured in Week 55 of A Taste of SL (follow the link for info on this weekly event).  Once I got the prims adjusted (I swear I’m putting Chloe on a diet!) I was able to take a look at all the great details on these shirts.  My absolute favorite was the shadow baked into the prim tie for the halter top.  Soooo cute!

Annnnd, my hair!  The Hair Fair is over now, but I sneaked in on the last day and grabbed one of Lamb’s short styles.  All of the styles you saw at the fair should be in each designer’s main stores now, so don’t worry if you didn’t make it in time.

Elymode @ Culture Shock

May 16, 2011

Here’s what’s truly shocking:  Culture Shock is still going on!  If (somehow) you haven’t heard, Culture Shock is a collaborative effort between CHIC Management, Modavia Productions and more than 150 designers benefiting Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders.  Keep your eyes open for the exclusive Culture Shock items at each store, 50% – 100% of the profits for those items will be donated to the docs.

The donation item I’m wearing is the new Vita dress from Elymode.  Elysium Eilde stepped out of her comfort zone on this one and it was well worth it.  The prim portions of the dress were easily resized and adjusted (even for me) and they make for incredible details on Ely’s already amazing work.  I ended up channeling a little of Ely through the dress and her Windlight settings and I took a lovely, unedited shot in SL.  (No, that’s not an insult, the pic just feels a little…  fantasy and pretty to me.)

I’m still fighting with shadows, so unfortunately you all have to deal with me experimenting and bitching about the failed trials.  I hate this glaring light that I can’t seem to get rid of.  I hate that I had to reduce the size of my inworld snapshots so I don’t get crazy lines all over.  I hate that my shadows used to work flawlessly and now they don’t!  LOL   Anyway…   There is some more Elymode in this pic, a Vita variation and part of the Lazy Day gacha items she has at the store for only 50L.  This is a group exclusive color, but the others are equally adorable.

Edited 3.17 :  I’m using the second pic as my sorry excuse for olive in the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  I know, I know, I’m pathetic.  But I’m so far behind!
