Exploring Second Life

Rosemoor

One of my favorite pastimes in Second Life is exploring Sims and the art installations throughout the grid.  Since I am basically a noob these days, I have started to rely on flickr groups for places to explore. One of these groups is the Explore Second Life group that has a wealth of photos for me to draw from for locations and inspiration.  One of these sims I came across in the group pool as Rosemoor; and since I was in the mood for another wintry photo from what I saw at Rosemoor this was just the place I was looking for.

My only issue with this photo is in my opinion, Elle is a bit under dressed.  Honestly, in real life, if there was snow on the ground like this, I would have my happy ass in a big ole jacket!  But this is a fantasy world and all so I can’t be too picky!  Perhaps she has on an invisible jacket?  YES that’s it – an invisible jacket, friends, which keeps her warm like nobody’s business!  On a side note, I almost took this photo with demo skin on too – whoops!   Noob, I tell ya….I am one big noob now!

Any who, that is all I have for the moment and my dog is demanding I take him for walk – STAT. So as per the norm, the details on the look can be found below along with all the SLurls to all the stores (am I being a good blogger or what).  So until next time – take care my friends and have a great Second Life!

Windows Ate My Pictures!

night out

 

Okay so…the other day I managed to take a whole batch of photos including the one you see here with Elle in her New Years Eve outfit she had been styling for weeks!  Well not exactly weeks, and maybe actually, just a couple of hours – but that’s beside the point, LOL.   But as luck would have it (or more than likely an ID10T error on Elle’s typist’s part) windows ate them all!  Elle was traumatized and so beside herself, she just couldn’t push herself to try to take the photo again.  Oddly enough, one was still in my recently viewed cached items, although, the file itself was gone!  So what’s a disappointed and lazy fashion blogger to do?  Use Snipit and take a photo of a photo woot!

Anyway, I had tons of fun with this photo – from styling Elle to building the little set.  There are so many wonderful little knickknacks in SL now that I think building sets might be a thing for me going forward.  Details on the items used in this photo along with Elle’s outfit can be found below. For now…I am out peeps – so in the meantime, take care my friends and have a great Second Life!

Sabine

Sabine

Pink Fuel has released two new skins! Here’s one of them, Sabine. She’s adorable and youthful, perfect for giving your Catwa heads a unique look. Go by the Pink Fuel mainstore and give it a demo!

Also, guess who won a Lelutka Bento head?

Simone bento head!

ME! This is my new “face” going forward. I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s Kiyomi skin in this picture. Having an Omega-friendly Lelutka head is exciting–now I can look forward to trying on a lot more skins and playing with different appliers.

SUPER thanks to Sophia Harlow of Blueberry for gifting me with this awesome head, and Gogo for nominating me to win it. 💖💖💖💖💖

I have more Bento mesh to show you in the future, including some fun avatars. Stay tuned!

The Process and Fallout by Elle

Fallout 4

I am a huge fan of the Dystopian Genre and the game Fallout 4 is one of the few single player games I actually play.  When I took this photo, for some reason Fallout 4 popped into my head when I looked at it again in Photoshop so I just rolled with it!  The editing was minor though, just cropping and a simple “action” I came across a few years back which mainly just softens to look of the picture.  Most of what you see though is pretty much Second Life at it’s finest – a gorgeous Windlight setting developed by Neva Xenga for her Neva Estates group of sims and the sim “junk” developed by Tab Tatham.

Sims like junk are what keep me wanting to take photographs in Second Life.  For me, often my SL photography process is I first find the sim or setting that inspires me, then look for an outfit, along with the right pose, that will work with the surroundings.  Sounds simple enough – although it can days for me to complete the image that I like enough to upload. By the way, since I am a returnee to Second Life, please let me know of sims, stores and pose shops I should be checking out.

Anywho, that is all I have to say for the moment but I shall return soon!  So in the meantime – take care my friends and have a great Second Life!

Glam Affair Lucrezia Skin for LeLutka Simone Bento

Glam Affair - Lucrezia

Happy New Year’s Eve!

I haven’t done a skin review in years, mostly cos I felt that SL system skins have peaked around 2013, and there was nothing else to write, that I haven’t written hundreds of times before. I have reviewed 245+ skins in SL from countless brands, some have stagnated and never moved beyond system skins, or they simply retired.

I plan on reviewing more skins in 2017, if I can alternate between more than a handful of brands. I won’t look for seams or point out flaws anymore, because it’s 2017 and I figured that most brands should have that figured out by now. If a skin is not to my liking, you will not see it on my blog. It may have taken me about a decade of SL blogging to figure it out, but it is much more efficient use of my time to focus only on well-made products. Unfortunately, that does mean that a lot of brands with potential will not get the feedback that they desperately need to grow.

Glam Affair - Lucrezia

This is the Lucrezia skin from Glam Affair. This skin is available at Uber, along with lashes and brows made specifically for the LeLutka Simone Bento head. I like the brows that it comes with, so I didn’t get the extra brows pack that can be worn with any Glam Affair skin/Lelutka Bento head. I also like that I can mix-and-match the makeups from some of the recently released Glam Affair skins to create some different looks. Even though I didn’t wear a lot of Glam Affair over the years, I do appreciate that Aida is a prolific skin maker.

Glam Affair - Lucrezia

The Lucrezia skin is $899L per skin tone, and comes with 8 brows color, 8 lipsticks, and 8 eye shadows. It is available at Uber at the moment, and will probably be available in store later on.

Juicy - Emma // LeLutka Simone Bento Shape

I have made a shape for this skin! Buy the Emma shape in my store or on Marketplace.
