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!
