Sky Walker

One of the things about taking pictures within Second Life is the chance to try your hand at new things. I’ve attempted the ‘mirror’ effect before but would always seem to get such ragged lines and edges on my ‘mirror’. Finally – by chance the other day, I got it! Although I do think it has a lot to do with what windlight setting you use (I was using my own windlight setting called “Winter” which you can find here) but to get this effect, check out the tutorials we have over at the [SL] Blogger Support on the ‘mirror’ effect and plenty of other ideas!

There is so much amazing stuff happening this week (besides Turkey Day) that I need to spill out and hope you can bear with me:

It’s Pose Appreciation Week over at the [SL] Blogger Support! You can read about it here from Asthenia Pinazzo. It fits in perfectly with this weeks prompts for Inspire Me! (another lovely initiative that we have over at the Support blog.) As you can tell – I’m very proud of this little blog that all – EVERYONE has made to be awesome! I actually get giddy.

I’m actually doing this Monday’s Inspire Me! prompt “Bend Me, Shape Me” and appreciation on aDORKable PosesFalling Series. Adorkable Peabody is one of my favorite pose-makers and has been for a while now and when she finally released the “Falling” series I knew I had to have them. What is so unique about them is their ability to actually stretch the limit on what you can do and bring emotion to your picture with just one simple pose.

Lastly, have you checked out Around the World yet hosted by The Ego Co???? Holy moley! You really should and while you’re there visit <Geometry> over in North America and pick up this amazing mesh dress called “Seattle”. It’s casual, yet class at the same time and although I’ve ‘falling’ and can’t get up – you defiantly have to believe me!

Down by…

Around the World hosted by The Ego Co. officially opened it’s doors yesterday at 12pmslt. If you haven’t yet gone down to check out the amazing designs from nine different regions, then you really should. While I was there I grabbed this very flattering, but peek-a-boo chambray shirt from Intrepid called “My Faithful”. Intrepid is located in the Australian / New Zealand region of the sim. I paired it off with my Oblivion Jeans from .evolve. and these “too” adorable boots from *G Field* that you can pick up when FAIR (hosted by CHIC Management) opens on Saturday, November 17th!

Your taxi to Around the World starts HERE! It continues on until November 29th, 2012.

Finding Zen

To be a good human being, that is the most important thing. I myself am also trying to be a good person. Sometimes I fail, but I try. That is a source of one’s own happiness. ~ Dalai Lama

Siren’s Call

On October the 24th, The Ego Co will be presenting The Costume Ball ~ A whimsical, gothic and frightening experience held at the Fable sim. With over twenty-five designers, this small dark soiree is sure to be a wonderful hit! One of many items to be found is this beckoning call from [Pink Fuel]. Femme Fatale comes in Kumi (Java) and Alyx (Vanilla, Peach, and Ivory) and with it’s own make-up and brow colors. I am wearing Alyx in Peach called Siren, which I absolutely loved the red red lips. It seemed only fitting to give myself my own femme fatale look and pair it off with the Mini Deep Club Dress in Red from [Haste]. It’s plunging neckline leaves not much to be imagined, but at least I’m a bit covered. Lastly, the jewelry is new and soon to be coming from Caelan Hancroft! She’s been hard at work in making such simple and yet elegant mesh pieces, and I’m looking forward to her store opening up soon!
