A story from the modeling world below the cut. It’s been a while since I posted one.
For this entry I had fun playing with windlights. It’s a treat for me to show off the awesome Lia Bento Head from Vista Animations. The range of facial expressions and emotions that come with it is comprehensive and the included HUD allows you to pause the expression if you want to use it for a photo. The lines and texture of the face look particularly great in photos. I used a free shape from Denver’s Shapes and modded it to look the way I wanted. I’m also wearing a skin from 7 Deadly Skins which is currently the November group gift. Today is the last day to get it! What makes me particularly happy is that the skin and makeup layers of the head are omega enabled, which I haven’t had with my previous heads. What do you think: should I make this my regular look from now on? I’m definitely thinking seriously about it.
It has been a while since I showed some current gifts, so there are two in this entry for those who either like gifts or might not have too many Linden dollars around right now. I think overall many people still start buying fewer Linden dollars since the exchange rate has decreased by 20%.
Jewelry: Chop Zuey – Maui Maui set, a gift at Aloha Fair
Makeup: Zibska – Spring Gift, available by joining the Versus Magazine Readers group
Pose: Posesion from the Roma set
Shirt: Valentina E. – Knotical Top available in-store only today for Fifty Linden Friday
Hair: Envogue – Dianne
Backdrop: MONS – Hello World!
Considering the haircut and jeans, I wanted to go a bit urban today. I think I achieved that with the addition of this sweatshirt from Pixicat which was created to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the store. I’m happy it’s been around so long – the items Areve makes are incredible.
As I was preparing this blog post, I happened to stop by a shopping event where I ran into someone from a place I used to work. Without delay she said something petty. When it comes to those situations I always feel like silence is best because there is no way to really respond without drama. That’s the beauty of SL – if we run into challenging situations, we can simply ignore the person and teleport out of the location. I only wish it were that easy in real life.
Top: Pixicat – Hoodie.Cropped
Pose: Posesion from the Aute set which is available at The Darkness Monthly
Hair: Lock & Tuft – Tegan (past Fifty Linden Friday item)
Jeans: Addams – Laura High Rise Jeans
This has been quite a month for me. I’ve been sick with something or other for a good portion of the time. Despite having a bad headache the other day, I couldn’t miss the photography class at Ferosh Fashion Institute. We played around with projectors and that inspired my blog post for today featuring the Chanel Set from Chop Zuey.
The set is ornately covered in pearls, diamonds, onyx and reddish purple and green gems. I tried to mirror a few of the colors in the lights that I used. There are three different sizes of earrings; here I’m wearing the smallest ones. There are also three ring possibilities which you could wear on the right hand all at the same time. Chanel is a classic set that will stand the test of time.
Staring out onto a world without pain
While all the anguish of centuries rages inside your bones.
The light from outside is barred from filtering through the window
Darkness wraps around your shoulders like
A warming blanket to prevent hypothermia.
(Poem by me)
It was important for me to feature this gown on my blog because it is an item being sold for charity. What happened at Pulse in Orland almost 3 weeks ago rocked the nation and we will feel the ripples for a long time. I won’t get political here, but I really hope something changes. It’s hard to know what we can do to make the necessary changes happen, so I look forward to the opportunity to contribute. For now, please consider buying this item or any of the other items at the fundraiser. 100% of proceeds from the event will be donated directly to Equality Florida which will help victims and their families.
I’m very happy to be showing you pieces from a set created by Amarelo Manga. The pattern of the dress is one that I instantly fell in love with due to its richness and vibrance. It is actually inspired from the real life fabrics used by the Amarelo Manga brand.
In other news, Posesion has opened an outlet section on the first floor of the store. It is full of 200L pose packs that will stay that price forever. Click here for your taxi.
It seems my inspiration finally makes an appearance when I get to the end of each month. I combined items from two of my favorite designers – Glamistry and Pixicat. For a while I have been hoarding these shoes and figured it was finally the time to bring them out. Also, these pants by Pixicat are available at We ❤ Roleplay which only goes through the end of this month, so stop by there sometime in the next week.
On a different note, SL has been getting me down lately. Perhaps because I’m not an assertive person, I get overlooked for opportunities and other things. It makes me very sad and I begin to doubt my worth in the fashion world. It seems like I have been super involved with a company or school and then all of a sudden they start ignoring me out of the blue. I wish I knew what I did wrong so I could apologize, but I don’t reach-out for fear of appearing weak. True, this is probably me over-reacting, but there are places I have been on staff for a long time or a place I attend events and yet I am constantly the last one considered. Everyone else at these places has been chosen over and over again while I remain unnoticed, despite my loyalty. It’s like being chosen last for a sports team in gym class. So many flashbacks to high school.
This too shall pass. Now for the credits!
