Life is Fluid

June 15, 2012

It’s time!  Fluid is a few hours into its first rotation!  Visit the website, swing by the sim, do some shopping at the pose and prop – centric, two week event.  The summer themed items are SO cute.  The creators have really outdone themselves!

Chloe sneaked into the fortune teller’s chair from Cleo Designs to see if she could tell what’s to come in our lives.  I hope the cards had something good in store for her, ’cause my tea leaves weren’t all that promising!

There are dunk tanks, group poses, couples poses, sea creatures, carousels and more at Fluid for the next two weeks.  After that, the new rotation and new fun will begin.

The Sky is Falling!

June 14, 2012

Nah, I guess it’s not really falling, is it?  But it sure feels like it sometimes!  Things are crazy here- some good, some not so good.  What’s falling on me right now?  Prep work for my new teaching job!  So yay for that, but like all teaching gigs, the unpaid prep hours tend to get lengthy.  The result?  A sadface and much less time with my peeps on Plurk and inworld.

However, I still have my little feelers out there in SL-land, so I have a couple of things to tell you about.
The Mesh Around hunt is almost over!  You’ve got a couple more days to go and get all the meshy goodies.  (Oh!  And on the mesh note, I have made a couple of tweaks to my shape after reading some blog posts and tutorials and am much happier with how things are fitting.)
As Mesh Around wraps up, Fluid begins!  Fluid is a pose and prop centric, theme-based event that cycles on two-week rotations.  So, what that means is that we have 12 designers creating around a theme (this rotation is Summer Fun) and their items will be available at Fluid for their two week period.  So expect to find some great beach, amusement park and picnic poses, props, animations and furniture at this rotation, which begins June 15th and runs until June 30th.  I’m using one of the cute hula poses from Bent as part of my drama llama, Chicken Little pic.

The Mesh Around hunt starts in only two days!  The Ego Co. mesh-centric event will run from June 1st to June 15 and it will impress you with the long list of both old and new participating designers.  You’ll be looking for an item that looks like this:

This dress from the Happy Undead made me feel like I was channeling Torley!  What a great little watermelon dress!  Kudos and thank yous to Carra Fargis for including so many size options.

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Dandelion

March 8, 2012

I’m playing a bit of catch-up with my color challenge, but I’m getting there.

The focus for this color isn’t just about the look, it’s about this lovely vignette from Zoe’s Garden.  Adele Rhiadra makes me so happy when she creates these little meadows (her Autumn Island is one of my other favorites).

I wasn’t really thinking about it when I was putting this shot together, but Chloe often helps me work through my thoughts while I’m blogging, and today she brought my attention to the fact that spring is right around the corner – daylight saving time is this weekend!  I know most of us haven’t had a “real” winter, and I don’t know about you, but I think I’m subconsciously yearning for spring.  Chloe’s outstretched arms and closed eyes made me realize that I am looking forward to spring.  Embracing it, even.  I’ve had a lot of changes going on in my RL and change is always hard for me.  Change is a scary thing, but it has to happen.  So, as the season changes, hopefully I’ll be welcoming whatever blossoms in my life as much as I’m looking forward to the first dandelions poking their heads out of the grass.

(How spoiled by mesh are we??  I grumbled about this system skirt the whole time I had it on!  LOL)

52 Weeks of Color – Electric Lime

February 27, 2011

Thank goodness for the designers that are following the 52 WoCC.  I had a great time window shopping at a handful of stores, but without Whippet & Buck, I wouldn’t have made it through this week’s challenge.  I can’t say for sure that I’ll wear my electric lime (or Rio Grande, as W&B calls it) purchases ever again, but they were perfect for this pic.  I’m a little sad that my Windlight settings sapped the green from the top, but I was playing with shadows and found that this was my best compromise between color and shadow and Depth of Field.  I have a handful of blogs that I use when I’m looking for hints and tutorials but my current go-tos are Luna’s BootCamp and Strawberry Singh’s Tutorials.  Love, love, love these ladies and their willingness to share knowledge with others.

Overall, this was a fun week.  I appreciate being forced to wear colors that are outside of my usual repertoire.  I appreciate being indirectly challenged by the other bloggers participating in the 52 WoC to try new techniques or perspectives or emotion in my pics.
