Bloggers Challenge – Inspiration Recreations, April


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This month I included a couple of Home & Garden styled photos as it was mentioned by a friend that if it wasn’t all fashion she might give it a go.  So this one is for all your Home & Garden bloggers :D

Inspiration Recreation April

Pick one of the photos below (these are thumbnail images,  click to see original image) and recreate it however it inspires you.  Feel free to recreate a photo using the opposite sex avatar shown to the model in the photo, use a different colour hair/shoes, use furniture that might not look exactly the same but still fits the pic you are putting together etc.

What Does The Fox Say?


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Birdy / Foxes / Alchemy have moved and have some great specials for VIPS.  First up is a new skin group gift for VIP’s in the ‘pure’ skin tone.  I love the almost porcelain look to Birdy skins, make sure you pop on over to the new sim and grab your group gift.

While you’re there check out the Foxes store and grab some cute vintage outfits.  Just wear your tag and smack the pictures just inside the door. There is the Peplum top on it’s own, the crop top and high waist skirt and the bustier with lace trimmed skirt.  The bustier also has straps which you can add on or leave off.  Beside the outfits you can also pick up your own cute little fox to hold, he comes in blue or pink.   The cute little pocket pet and the black cat at my feet can be found in the lower level beneath Foxes.  They are past gachas from events and you will find a whole wall full of various ones to play.

The Secret Affair is full of some seriously fantastic items this round.  It was so hard to pick what items to blog but I went with this kick ass cage mask from SWaGGa and collar from Tableau Vivant.  Such a sexy dark look, I may just leave this on for a while.

I decided to play around with the windlights and got two different looks for my photos.  Something a little different to my usual plain background fashion blogging.  I quite liked how they turned out.

Kawaii Project


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I was feeling in the mood for some cutesy pics today instead of my normal dark and gothy look and Kawaii Project has the perfect things for such a look!

Kawaii Project Pic 1

The retro dryer chairs come with 10 poses  and a magazine prop which goes with three of the poses.  One thing that kept going through my head when I was setting up for the pics today was a saying my mother taught me as a child with regards to dressing – Blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between.  Funny how sometimes the weirdest old memories come flooding back. Even though I wasn’t wearing blue green I still automatically separated the chairs and put a colour between them :D

Skin Fair – Skin Review, La Petite Morte


, , , , , , , , , ,

Skin Fair is just around the corner and the one thing I can’t stress enough is to demo EVERYTHING.  We all use different windlight settings, affecting the way we see things on our monitors.  Everyone has different monitor settings that may cause things to seem brighter or darker.  And not only that, the shapes that designers use for the skins in the pictures may not look anything like your shape and it can have a drastic impact on how the skin looks on you.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 1

Another thing worth mention is the way in which skin stores display their vendors.  Some have little bottles coloured with the skin tone, others have a box with a texture.  But the way a skin colour looks on a flat texture prim compared to the SL Avatar or mesh body is different.  A prime example is the way in which La Petite Morte displays their skin options.  The pic above is how you will see the options for purchasing.  If you were to rely on thee images you would get a different skin tone if you bought blindly. DEMO’s are your friend!  I am a fan of these skins and I wear them frequently so I remember which tone is which now.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 5

But you can see the difference between the liquid make up style swatch compared to the skin is different. Don’t be put off by looking at bottles/boxes on a shelf thinking none of the ‘colours’ there look like your preferred skin tone.  Grab a demo – it doesn’t cost you anything – and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 6

The Maja line is a lovely skin for those that like a plump lip look.  The eyebrows are probably one of my favourites from La Petite Morte so far, nicely shaped, not too thick and they sit nicely with my current eyebrow shape.  If you are someone who likes blonde or coloured eyebrows then you will need to scout around for some tattoo layer eyebrows.  La Petite Morte skins only come with the one eyebrow colour, which is shown.  It works perfect for me as most of the eyebrows on the skins are dark and I am typical dark haired.  However each skin also comes with an eyebrow free version for this very reason.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 7

If you like darker skin tones I really suggest trying both tone 7 and tone 8.  There’s quite a leap between them compared to the other tones but both are very pretty depending on which tone you prefer.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 2

I used the Maitreya Body for the photos of the Maja line and I am using the SLink body for the Sadie line. All appliers you will find in the La Petite Morte main store and you are wanting the Gen 2 appliers.  I encountered an issue with the SLink body / hands / feet not looking seamless and with obvious colour variances.  Thankfully it seems it was an SL bug the day I took the photos.  I contacted the owner Voshie Paine and mentioned the issue and after a few minutes talking and me testing the skins again everything was fine.  It’s always nice to have a designer that is more than happy to listen and help even if the issue is server side and not theirs.

Skin Fair Skin Review - La Petite Morte Pic 3

This is where I wish I could meld skins together.  I am in love with the little chin dimple on the new Sadie skin, but I love the eyebrows from Maja skin.  Sadie’s eyebrows are more on the ‘bushy’ side but playing around with your eyebrow shape may reduce this some.  As a lover of Pale skins the one thing I would love to see a little more definition on is the collar bones and the dimple.  The darker the skin tone gets the more these two stand out though.  I also love the new lip style that Sadie has.  The little extra detail around the lip line and the more defined lip wrinkles are quite pretty.

So please – if you are looking for a new skin.  Make two trips, it is totally worth it in the end.  Grab a demo for every store that you can.  Go home and test them all in different light settings and make a list of what you want.  You’ll be surprised and may end up getting something you never thought you would before.

Skin Fair – Ink and Makeup


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Skin Fair 2015 is opening in a few days so I thought I would give you a bit of a preview of some of the inks and make ups you can find there.

Skin Fair Preview Things and Nuuna

It’s not only about skins.  It’s anything to do with skin, which includes tattoos, makeups and mesh body parts.

Skin Fair Preview Clemmm

I’m always attracted to the unusual make ups so when I saw Nuuna’s store sign I made a bee-line for it and Clemmm was close by.  I’ve never shopped at Clemmm before but I think I will be keeping an eye out in future.  Love the things I found there.

Skin Fair Preview Nuuna and Identity

There’s two sims to check out and it has an upper level of stores which I almost missed at first so make sure you walk up the tall stair case and check out who is on the upper levels.

The Waiting Game


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today’s post started off as needing to put some clothes on as I was expecting to have a person on my mess build deck for a quick photo shoot.  I had half an hour to kill so started throwing things together.  Photoshoot was delayed a little due to internet stupidity so I start fiddling around with my poses stands since there are right there in front of me and thought to myself – I’ll snap a quick pic since I quite like how this ‘slap things together’ outfit turned out.  That quick pic then turned into a full on blog post set of pics.  So there you go.  The weirdest blog post beginning ever!  Enjoy.

Avatar Transformation Challenge


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I decided to do another one of Berry’s Monday Meme’s.  This week it is all about transforming your avatar so that you wouldn’t be recogniseable to those that know you.  I had a hard time finding stuff in my inventory that was out of the normal for me.  I tend to own a little bit lot of black items; and definitely no pinks and pastels.  But I did manage to find a few fat packs that had other colours so I settled on a white dress.  White is definitely not something I tend to wear, nor are dresses.  Every time I try to make a new shape my face always ends up looking the same.  Even if I think I have altered it a tonne so I decided to wear one of this Arcades round mesh heads from VCO.  They are so cutesy, again not me :P

Avatar Transformation Challenge

The heads come with a matching skin that you can wear on your normal SL body but I wanted to take the challenge a little further and try to match with one of my mesh bodies.  Berry mentioned in her post that she hadn’t had the time to be able to match hers yet and it was definitely a lot of trial and error finding a skin tone that would blend well or require little photoshopping.  I found that Izzie’s Qopi skin worked best for the windlight I chose.  The VCO heads do come with their own SLink hand and feet appliers but for a more seamless flow I stuck with the Qopi skin through out all my meshy parts.

So, if you saw this photo without my name attached to it anywhere would you think it was me?

Bloggers Challenge – Inspiration Recreations, March


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I decided to mix up this months post and attempted to do all the photos.  Hopefully this will help some of you decide if you can do the photos or not.  Some photos I choose look pretty simple or plain but sometimes it takes a bit of effort in getting the look just right, other times it can be easy.  The original plurk can be found here and there is also a page at the top of this blog where you can find all past months choices as well. (singular images of this post can be found in the flickr group, link at the end of the post).

Inspiration Recreation March

This weeks photos came about from a plurk I started where I asked friends to tell me if they had a favourite word.  I took a bunch of those words and image searched them, then chose one for each that I thought reflected it.  The words chosen were (from left to right, top to bottom in the collage pic): Fuck, by Vinny; Wonderland, by Melissa; Asshat, by Nigel; Poppycock, by Chandni; Bollocks, by Petrie;  Dichotomy, by Horrorcherry; Broken, by Aarya and Epitome, by Ama.  So below are your choices for the month based on the words of my friends over at plurk.  Pick one of the photos below (these are thumbnail images,  click to see original image) and recreate it however it inspires you.  Feel free to recreate a photo using the opposite sex avatar shown to the model in the photo, use a different colour hair/shoes etc.  However these photos inspire you to create art is what it is all about (as you can see from my photos, they aren’t perfectly exact.  But I do have fun creating the image however I can).

Bollocks - Aarya Broken - Aarya Dichotomy - Horrorcherry Epitome - Ama Fuck - Vincent Poppycock - Chandni Wonderland - MelissaAsshat - Nigel

Some of the words were pretty easy to find something for.  But with a rowdy bunch of friends, I should have known better than to ask for suggestions *glares at Petrie, Vinny and Nigel*.  Epitome was an interesting one.  I found many images but the one that grabbed my attention was the gorgeous Tilda Swinton.  Poppycock was another one that was funny to look for but I stumbled across Prince Poppycock, who I had not heard of before, and he is just simply stunning.  There were so many photos of him to choose from.  Asshat is literally an ass on a head.  I was doing some complex photo to begin with and making my own pose for it but it was proving to be quite a challenge; until the husband pointed out the above photo and I remembered the pose from !bang.  Bollocks I did in reverse due to my hair parting the opposite way to the photo but it still looks pretty good to me.  I forgot to include the dirty fingers for broken (although I think with the feelings the photo is portraying that it was meant to be blood) so I’m sure appliers or tattoo layers for that even exist in SL.  Fuck and Dichotomy required a fair bit of photo manipulation in photoshop with multiple photos taken and layered.  The hand in Fuck was literally just a floating prop in the photo to begin with and granny, oh how I love this avvie, was also another floating photo taken and layered on top.  Sometimes you need to do a bit of work and this is why I love doing these photos  It help me work on skills in photoshop and get better.

Join the flickr group for the challenge and share your photos.  Don’t forget the challenge requires you to reproduce one of the photos shown here.  While I love that people are getting all creative and inspired by RL photos and doing more, the flickr group is only for the challenge photos in these blog posts. Also don’t forget to leave a link to your blog in the comments below.

February seemed to scream events.  Did anyone else notice that?  There was your regular monthly ones which all had fabulous items and stole my lindens.  Then there were a bunch of special themed ones and it was an never ending cycle of logging in to find out another event had opened and was calling for your linden balance.

I picked a few items from some of the events  and threw them all at my avatar until it formed some sort of look.  I’m loving the new corset from Wimey.  I was watching the progression of it in WIP shots and tried to throw my lindens at the photos early on. Pin Me Down also has some great new make ups out for Futurewave.  I love the PMD makeup lines – always something just a little different but versatile enough to wear with a multitude of looks.
