I made a new Flickr group called Elevation to share photography taken from breath-taking heights. Photographers on Instagram have been sharing these types of photos lately, so I thought why not do it in SL? We have so many places available to us and it’ll be refreshing to see it shot from high above instead of ground level.
I fell off the ledge of this roof so many times, but I’m okay! I also brought my own rain. I made it rain!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Show me your daring photography! Remember to add the photo to Elevation on Flickr and tag it as Elevation.
The Luna Sashes from Caboodle is available at this month’s We <3 RP event, and it is just fantastic! I knew I wanted to take photos with it as soon as I saw it, since I don’t have anything like it in SL. The sashes come in two different version, one is more modest than the other and wraps all the way around. This is a new to me brand, and from what I can see, the fit and texturing is beautiful. I wish the colors offered on these sashes were softer; especially for the idea I had in mind, any bold bright colors would clash too much with the scenery. The purple is my favorite from the colors offered, but the pink and blue were much too bright.
I’m sharing Sehra’s post on Why Color Trends Matter again. So many brands in SL create beautiful products but the colors are slightly off.
I’m at the gorgeous Arranmore sim today! A sheep is photobombing me.
As you know The Arcade is here again! It was fairly easy to get in, now that there are 3 sims available. I played the Yummy machine cos I just wanted rings, and would have been happy with any one of them. I actually did not get any duplicates (yay!), but stopped when I had a few that I liked.
What I’m Wearing:
Caboodle – Luna Sashes (Purple)
LeLutka – Eleanor Hair
Ingenue – Melisande Heels (Peach)
Yummy – Royal Rings
I am a huge fan of online photo editors. I have reviewed Picnik, PicMonkey, Ribbet, etc. I have used all of those services and found each one to be easy to use, fun, and definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of editing without using Photoshop.
FotoJet sent me an invite to review their online photo editor and collage maker, so I tried some of the filters and fun graphic design tools. For now, signing up for an account is FREE. I predict that once this service gains more popularity, they will introduce a fee, like some of the services I mentioned above. Usually the price is a few dollars a month, or around $20-$25 for the yearly subscription. It’s fairly cheap, if you enjoy these type of things.
I was able to edit photos, make posters, make magazine covers within a matter of minutes. Everything seen above is editable – resize the text, re-position it, or remove it entirely! If you’re looking for a fun way to jazz up your SL photos, check out FotoJet!
While I know my way around Photoshop, I really love playing with photo editors when I want to make quick edits to my photos. They’re great for adding filters and color manipulation. If you enjoy using online photo editors, let me know in the comments.
Obviously, I am not paid to write a review of FotoJet. Companies invite me to review things all the time, and I only review the services that I find beneficial or useful.
Can you tell what kind of mesh head I’m wearing? It’s kind of borderline, isn’t it? If you see me walking around a sim, you might think I’m just very good at shape-making at first glance. But if you see my profile…ah! I’m wearing a mesh head after all. No flat Second Life face, no weird nose, a fully developed mouth instead of two weird-looking bumps.
The inspiration for my outfit today is Lily Bell, a character from one of my favorite shows. Tan isn’t usually my top picks in SL, but I chose the tan pants and a white blouse cos it reminds me of one of Lily’s outfits.
I bought these items from the ISON x Rowne Collection, it is a limited edition collection and a collaboration between two brands. I think it’s a bold move to offer these items for a limited time only, so if you’re reading this post a month from now, they’re no longer available. I read Sasy’s post about the collection before buying, and I must say that I am slightly disappointed they didn’t offer sizing for some of the major bodies on the grid.
Impulsively, I want to fatpack these things cos they’ll be gone forever! But I know that I rarely wear the same outfit twice, so I picked out two pieces that I love from the collection and chose a color for each. The Brito blouse I can pair with skirts and so many other things. I desperately need more pants in SL, so the Ondria pants are just the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I actually wanted to fatpack these until I took a closer look at the crotch area and noticed some really unsightly discoloration in the texturing; it just looked dirty…. and that’s not an area that should appear dirty, lol. On some of the darker colors, it’s not as noticeable but it was super noticeable on the pink color. I would show you guys to confirm that it’s not just my computer, but overall I am happy with the tan color pants I got, since it matches the discoloration (yellowish brown).
Overall, I think the collection is definitely worth checking out. Whether you like slim fitting gowns, or outfits, there’s something for most tastes. To be honest, the collection reminds me of my work clothes, very basic colors and nicely tailored.
What I’m Wearing:
ISON x Rowne – Brito Blouse (White)
ISON x Rowne – Ondria Pants (Tan)
Truth Hair – Tempest
Ricielli – Wendy High Heels
LaGyo – Siroune Ring (Gold)
