Petite and Unedited

April 1, 2012

I’m dancing and hopping and grinning with excitement again.  I’m in love.  With myself.  Narcissism at its best, I know.  But I can’t help myself.  I’m adorable.  Mynerva has collaborated with Yabasuka to create the most darling Petite line of mesh avatars.  The avatar is so tiny and so sweet (though her arms seem a little long, if you ask me), I can’t decide if I want to be her or carry her around with me everywhere.  The rigging (I think?) is so well done that my Petite can seamlessly use my regular AO and I really didn’t expect it, so that was a pleasant surprise.  Both Evie’s Closet and Wasabi Pills have downsize…  err… miniaturized some of their wonderful designs, outfitting these Petite avatars to be as well dressed and accessorized as our larger selves.

I haven’t been doing much photo editing lately, choosing to focus more on photography techniques and inworld features to help shape my pics, so doing Harlow Heslop’s Unedited challenge wasn’t too much of a stretch for me.  While fighting with Firestorm and my dying graphics card, I snapped some pics as I tried to focus on my avatar’s size compared to the world around her.  There will absolutely be more perspective shots with her in them.  Oh, and unrelated, but I’m trying to come up with a name for her.  Any suggestions?

Elymode @ Culture Shock

May 16, 2011

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!

52 Weeks of Color – White

March 29, 2011

Who would have thought that white would give me such a hard time??  I have plenty in my inventory and I put together multiple lovely outfits and I found several lovely sims to shoot on.  Yet all of those factors came together to create a bunch of crap pictures.  I know I’ve still got a few days, but I really wanted to work on a couple of other projects rather than get myself all twirly about white, so I ended up with this.  How can you go wrong with the winged, ethereal look?

And if you want winged and ethereal, Violaine Villota of Fancy Fairy Wings & Things, provides it in a big way with these wings.  She has rereleased some of her old designs with fun, new scripting for various wing positions and with nine gorgeous color variations.  Everything in her store looks lovely, but it really was the wings that held my attention.  She has any style of wings you can imagine, from butterfly to fairy, to goblin, to dragonfly and many others.  This was perfect timing to whet my appetite for the upcoming Fantasy Faire.  The Faire will run from April 2nd to the 10th and will host a number of events, hunts, sales and auctions all benefiting Relay for Life.

All the Juicy Details

March 5, 2011

It’s almost time!  The highly anticipated Pure Juice event is going to open in only… 24 short minutes.  You won’t be able to get in until then, so don’t bother going to the Juicy sim until 4pm SLT.

I’m typing fast so I can get one more preview post in before the masses head over for their dose of Pure Juice.  All the hype (that could have been entirely in my head) annoyed Chloe a little bit, so she’ll be sneering at us in this post, her expression contradicting the sweetness of the pink makeup on the exclusive CandyDoll skin.  I HAD to blog this skirt and top combo because it’s named after me (yeah, right!) and is really cute and simple and easy to wear.  My Maitreya Golds on the other hand…  ugh…  They gave me some problems today.  I love ’em, but I hate matching skin tones.

So there you have it.  Enjoy the event, spend lots of lindens, these designers made all these lovely things just for YOU!  Yes, they did.  I swear.

Primrose and Grapefruit Juice

March 5, 2011

I was supposed to be highlighting items from the Pure Juice event that’s starting today, but I got distracted while playing with windlight, shadows and depth of field.  Cool Beans’ sweet little dress and pumps were adorable (though the dress was a little too lingerie-feeling for me) but got a little overshadowed by Ulaa Coronet’s Primrose Weathered Greenhouse.  The detail in the textures and the construction are absolutely perfect.  I live on a beach, so I took the pics inside one of  Turnip’s skydomes, but this greenhouse is really making me want to move to a wildflower filled meadow somewhere.

So here are a few of the many pics I took.  Like I said, the quality of the greenhouse made me want to take snaps from every angle, the wood looked so beautiful and real, the vines hanging out front were adorable, the glass roof made delightful shadows on the floor…  Okay, okay, pics.

So.  Head on over to the Juicy sim and check out all the wonderful items have been designed just for you and the Pure Juice event.  Do it.  Nao.
