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 – Alice Blue

February 21, 2012

I’m falling behind on my WoCC.  Again.  I was going to make a pose for this, but time just got away from me.

Anyway, I dug a little bit into the color Alice Blue and made some mentions of Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter, the US Navy and the musical/film Irene.  This is my little homage to the iconic Irene revival poster featuring Debbie Reynolds.

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.

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.

Peace on Earth

December 2, 2011

I’m not ready to accept the fact that it’s winter.  Nope.  December 2nd?  I don’t care.  I’m not ready for cold.  I’m not ready for Christmas shopping.  I’m not ready for holiday travel.  I’m not ready for staticy hair.  I’m not ready for Christmas music…  gawd…  Anyway, can you tell I’m not ready?  So today’s post is in a very special spring meadow, protesting the change of season.

But I SUPPOSE there are a few things I’m ready for, and one of them is the Peace On Earth 4 Hunt.  I got my Rockberry-lovin’ fingers on the POE4 hunt gift and it’s just gorgeous.  Lovely dark, yet casual, makeup for winter.  And freckles!  Yay!  (There’s a non-freckled option too, but I don’t know why you’d want it, lol.)

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!).

An Autumn Island

November 15, 2011

This is exactly what I needed.  A nice little relaxing island to myself, all decked out in its autumn glory.  Autumn is my favorite season and the Autumn Island from Zoe’s Garden made me so happy.  It’s like a little seasonal piece of Pandora’s Singing Mountains, floating in space, stars sparkling all around…  LOL  Okay, okay, maybe that’s a bit TOO romantic, but still, it’s really cute and it has replaced my skyhome for the time being.

And I know you can’t see much of me, but I’m wearing my first mesh outfit!  I’ll post a closer pic of this dress soon, but just in case someone’s actually wondering, it’s the lovely little sheath from Ingenue available now at Collabor88.  My sweet Elikatira hair is from Collabor88 too.

Annnnnnd, a quick shout-out to Blogging SecondLife, an attempt to provide a comprehensive resource for the Second Life community.  There are some wonderful SLers out there working hard to put together this ‘one stop shop’ for us when it comes to SL blogs, so be sure to check it out and give them the credit they’re due when you see ‘em.
