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.

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 – 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!

Sweet Sinners

February 17, 2012

It’s almost time for the Festival of Sin!  Less than 24 hours to go!

Even though this event really is for celebrating the sinful things that most of us love, I wanted to be sure that everyone realized that there are less… depraved items available at the festival as well.  And what better way than to start out with some of the sweetest sinners?

Some details about the Festival:

Due to the potentially graphic nature of the event, the organizers have located the festival on an adult sim, which means that you must be age verified to enter.  The sim is soooooo well done.  The dark, dirty atmosphere is an absolutely perfect backdrop for the festival (and DO use the windlight settings that are suggested by the organizers, it really adds to the ambiance).  There ARE graphic images that could upset your sensibilities if you have them.

Also, since lag is such a huge problem for events like this, you will have to ensure that your scripts are below 60 or you will not be able to get in.  So instead of being encouraged to wear low lag items, the organizers are not allowing other options.  (You can thank the inconsiderate people who wear scripted hair, boots, jewelry and clothes along with their AO and pregnant belly hud to events in the past for ruining it for all of us.  I actually think it’s a great idea and, if nothing else, it will encourage people to check out the wrath side of the sim.)

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 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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 22, 2011

Happy (early) Turkey Day to all of you out there!

RezIpsa Loc resurrected her patchwork turkey tees for the holiday and popped ‘em in a Gatcha machine for 25L.  I think they’re just adorable.  (And the back of the tee is a vrrrrry deep, sexy scoop, so make sure you tell her we want more like that.)

So, here’s a supa-dupa quick snapshot that I took inworld.  I’m trying to be less of a perfectionist and more of a blogger, so I didn’t do anything to this pic besides crop it.  Just a FUN, quickie post for y’all (and for me!).
