52 Weeks of Color – Tangerine

May 12, 2011

I’m really late for tangerine.  I’m almost late for olive.  I’ve been having a helluva time with the technology surrounding SL and taking photos inworld.  So, again, I’m giving y’all a less-than-spectacular pic, but damnit, it’s got shadows.  LOL

I pulled out an old favorite in a bold color for my tangerine and paired it with some cute shorts I got at the Gacha Festival.  And this messy pony from fri.day…  I don’t know when it originally came out, but I haven’t stopped wearing it since I picked it up the other day.

52 Weeks of Color – Periwinkle

April 28, 2011

Periwinkle was not an easy color.  I didn’t have anything in my inventory that suited the version of blue that I had in my head.  Then I would have loved to put something together that would be a fitting tribute to a poem written about me, but I couldn’t do that justice either.  So I went with simple instead.

And let’s not forget to mention Culture Shock.  The Exile hair I’m wearing is one of the exclusive items that Doctors Without Borders will receive proceeds from.  I picked up this sweet little sundress there too (but I’m honestly not sure if it’s new for the event or if you can pick it up at the store, sorry).

I’ve been feeling pretty faded lately, and I think Chloe’s looking a little sad and vulnerable in the pic, so I guess it is a bit of a tribute to the poem:
I always preferred
midnight to navy in a box of sixty-four.
She chose periwinkle, powder, cornflower,
her colors pale and fading.

Blogger Subculture Challenge

April 22, 2011

So…  I finally got around to finishing the Subculture Challenge!  Sileny Noel put together a huge list of subculture groups from which she picked two subcultures for you based on the numbers you chose.  I ended up getting Geek and Psychedelic 60s.  I haven’t had a chance to get to the Geek yet, but I channeled my psychedelic (late) 60s self and put together a little something.  I imagine it’s not quite a classic psychedelic 60s example, but it’s MY example.

Nothing new for this post fashion-wise.  I’m wearing one of the many colors from my Reek fatpack of bikinis, a newer Mynerva skin, my beloved prim feet (though they gave me fits trying to color them for this), my pixie cut from Elikatira and the sweetest little open mouth from Tuli.

I did get a little “ambitious” and put together a little body paint for myself on a tattoo layer.  I also made this pose.  And while I really enjoy doing it, I am not a posemaker and I have such a difficult time with the body mechanics.  So anyway, I made it and I’m proud of myself.  So there.

Feathered

April 17, 2011

Something old and something new.  But no blue.  Just feathers.

Angel Susanti just set out her new Feather Fairy set on Friday and it (by her own admission) is a bit more mardi gras than fairy.  So I cut down the accessory list and wore only the wings, hairpiece, bracelet and anklet and think it’s just feathery fun.  I’ve always loved my freckles and the open mouth tattoo options are making their way up my list, so I was so excited to find both of those options for the new Vackra skin, Ella.  I grabbed a hair from The Fashion Garret that is a little out of my typical style and it actually drove the feel of this whole pic.  And I found a new-to-me posemaker, Shades of October- very cute!  The feathers of the wings called to an old Fall Into Decay dress I had buried in my invvy, so I got it dry cleaned to wear for this post.  So, a little feathery, out-of-my-ordinary post for you.

Butterflies, butterflies, butterflies.

April 8, 2011

As anyone who knows me has noticed, I’m a little crazy for butterflies lately. The wonderful Papillon breedables are threatening to take over my sim (and my lindens) and now I have found a crazy dress that has them literally orbiting around me.
The SoliDea Folies Butterfly Circle dress isn’t a practical one, but it was SO much fun to photograph. And even the prim challenged like me will have no problem fitting this dress. As I was putting this look together, I kept having flashes of Galadriel from LOTR when she does her whole “not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the morn” thing about the One Ring, so I had to go get some hair that matched that image. This amazing Irena hair from Vita’s Boudoir was exactly what I was looking for. Expect to see this hair again because I plan to be in the wind or the water a lot from now on, just so I can wear it.

52 Weeks of Color – Banana Mania

April 2, 2011

…banana mania?  Seriously?  A)  What kind of crazy, cracked out crayon color is that?  B)  Why isn’t it really yellow?!?  I’m linking y’all to Luna’s post so you can see the swatch.  I couldn’t decide what to do for this one- follow the given color or put together an outfit that looks like banana mania in my head.  Now, mind you, that wasn’t a very pretty sight, but it made more sense to me than what I came up with.  Regardless of my color confusion, I came up with a look I really enjoyed for this week.  I tried to channel a nice, lovable banana pudding for this post.  You know?  With vanilla wafers and whipped cream?  I don’t know…  southerners like to eat it, I think it’s gross.  Anyway…

The crowning glories of this pic are the new(ish) RezIpsa Loc Frances hair, the sweet pearl necklace from Dark Mouse and some new eyes from Perception.  Frances is my first hair with two attachment points and I was very impressed with how well it worked out.  No more hair eating boobs!  Yay for that!  The necklace from DM is the VIP gift for this month.  You couldn’t see the adorable bow at the clasp, but Mouse has matching earrings in her gacha machines at the store too.  Perception must have been listening in on my plurk line, because she answered my call for some gorgeous eyes with nice bright whites.  I’m also wearing a little fri.day (of course), a pair of leather pants from the Pure Juice Event and the newly updated Tiger heels from SLink.

I pulled out the Adele set from Clutter because almost all the texture change options coordinated with my backdrop.  It has a handful of cute sits built in, but for some reason I had to use the Temptress.  So I cheated a little and mixed and matched.
