I usually rely on Photoshop for minor edits of my photos. I decided to take on the Blogger Raw Challenge created by Lucie Bluebird which you can read more about here. First, I want to begin by saying my computer is far from great. I pump up my graphics to ultra and tweak a few options, only for photos or crashing is inevitable for me. Leaving this photo “as is” was extremely hard for me. I cringe at not being able to use my liquify tool but rough edges are a part of Second Life, I just hate them. From time to time I have problems with shadows depending on the viewer, windlight or mesh body parts. In the photo below Oculis’ hands are showing both the mesh and Second Life default hand shadows. Although there are some evident imperfections, I believe this tells the true, raw love I have with my SL and RL husband.
I was playing around with some poses I recently purchased from flowey and decided I’d enter the coldLogic poster contest. Even if I don’t win, it was a fun photo to do. I went with the Anniversary subscriber dress which comes in two colors and I think it’s a perfect spring dress to add to your inventory. If you’re thinking of entering, you still have until the 28th to do so. I also picked up a few things for the 50% off Anniversary Sale which goes through tomorrow. It’s a great time to pick up some of your favorites that you might not have.
It’s been a dreary and cold day here and I’ve spent all afternoon listening to The National. I did, however, want to show you a few new pretties. FAKE has released a new skin line named India. She comes in 8 tones with ginger, brunette or blonde brows and 5 makeups. Also available are Slink hand and feet appliers, Lolas appliers and Phat Azz appliers. Below I’m showing off the Ginger brows with freckles but please continue reading because I’ve got quite a few photos today. I’m also wearing fri. boots which have become my new favorite pair of lace-up boots. I love the slight wedge heel, I’d definitely wear them in RL. These are available now at Shoetopia.
The new poses from Luna Jubilee of !bang are so adorable. I knew I needed to use one of them, so I told my man about the new shirt and vests from Fatewear and we decided to cuddle up for a photo. I’m wearing a new skin from FAKE, her name is Autumn. As you know, I usually show you all the options of new skins but I simply don’t have the time today. I’m wearing my favorite one below. She’s so cute with her ginger brows and freckles! You’re definitely not limited to a redhead though. There’s also brunette, blonde and no brow options that come in 5 tones along with Tango and hand appliers, plus 11 lipsticks. I’m sorry to cut this short but I’ve gotta finish packing. I’m flying to New Orleans tomorrow for my sister’s wedding! See you in a little over a week. <3
Today I’ve got a peek from two upcoming events beginning December 1st. First, Adorkable is participating in The Arcade once again and I LOVE these gift poses. Nine poses will be up for grabs and each one is accompanied by a texture change gift box along with a grayscale one for your complete customization. How awesome is that? Secondly, Lilo outdid herself creating Zima for the Winter Fair and today I’m showing just a little taste of what this beauty has to offer. If you purchase the full skin pack you’ll receive 5 skins with and without cleavage, 4 eyebrow colors, 14 lipstick addons, 2 blushes, shape and the new soft eyes in brown. Of course you can always purchase each skin seperately if you so desire.
I’ve been sitting here with my head in the clouds all day and just can’t seem to shake it. Maybe I needed to escape my thoughts for a bit and just breathe. A little relaxation and a cuppa tea should do me good tonight. See you soon! <3
