Heat Wave

Around The World is well underway, and if you’ve been waiting for the crowds to die down before you made your way over, now’s a better time than ever! Senzafine is in the Middle East section, and has a great, colourful set out just for the event.

I love how colourful and luxurious this set it. Probably the best part about this set is the fact that the cooler colours can be carried right through Winter and up until Spring.

After being in a bit of a funk for a while, I think I’ve finally got my mojo back. Watch me jinx myself. Organica has this super unique table out for Around The World, which is the whole point in the event. Get different things out there from different cultures!

Red Sun

The Ego Co’s latest event is just days away, and man, I’m excited about this one. Around The World starts on the 15th, and focuses on different cultures across the globe. Sway’s has a great set out inspired by the Asia Minor group.

The Yuka set is a beautiful set of furniture that doesn’t even have to be used in an Asian inspired look. Each piece can be used individually elsewhere, my favourite being the adorable tabletop zen garden.

I got some posey goodness for you today, special for The Costume Ball! Let’s take a peek..

This is probably my favourite set from Purple Poses. The Mel pack comes with 5 poses, and don’t let the space helmet fool you, they’re totally sexy.

The Harvest

The Costume Ball is open! I’m sure you’ve heard all about it, so I’m not going to bore you with details. Instead, let’s take a peek at the goody Cheeky Pea has out for us.

The Harvest Night Gazebo is special for the event, and not only does it come with a handful of animations for you, your friends, and your partner, but it even has this neat night sky texture on the inside of the roof.

The Summer Harvest Hunt is so close to starting! For now, I just get to tease you with previews, but come September 1st, you can scoop up theses awesome poses, and a ton of other great stuff!

From Fly Lily there’s a pack of ten static poses for you to grab. The Summer pack comes with a ton of different styles, from artistic and sexy, to sweet and full of attitude, great for any type of photography you need.

I love this pose. I mean, love this pose. Focus Poses has this great couple pose you can (and totally should) scoop up for the hunt. It’s not only great for couples, but friends, and who says it has to be a boy/girl thing?

Summer Siesta

Kukuvaya has this incredible patio up for grabs, that includes a version with and without lanterns. The wood is beautifully textured, and the space is big enough to create a great party space or a relaxing outdoor room.

Maple Syrup

There’s a ton of stuff going on as we welcome the beginnings of a new season, and personally, my favourite one; Autumn! One of the hunts that’s about to start is the Summer Harvest Hunt put on by The Ego Co.

Bent’s prop comes with 6 great poses, all focused around the leaves, which cast such neat shadows. The colour has such a great, seasonal pop!

Also a part of the hunt is Sparrowtree Studios. The Sunflower prop has three cute poses packed into this fence prop. Just like Bent’s item, there’s a great pop of colour that’s so typical and wonderful of the season.

Red Pill

Since I’m a bit of a dweeb, I decided to continue the Matrix trend the moment I saw Bouncer‘s poses for this round of Fluid. Also falling under the action category, Bounce This Poses has two great items out, exclusive for this round.

The Femme Fatale set comes with four attitude packed and perfectly bitchy poses for us ladies. It’s such an overlooked detail, but I love how the hand is actually holding the gun with a finger cocked over the trigger. I’m a stickler for simple, yet realistic things like that!

The Hardwired couple pose is a great pose for doing those goofy scenes I love so much. It’s a versatile pose; you can go the action route like I have, or if you’re feeling creative, change it up a bit and make it sexy and erotic.

Both sets come with a prop gun that’s fabulously textured, but above that, it’s texture change! Ever play 007 on Nintendo? Well, now you can have that Golden D-Eagle.

The One

A new round of Fluid is coming in a few short days (August 1st) with a versatile theme of At The Movies. The subcategories (action, comedy, drama) offer some great ideas and what I hope to be a hilarious opportunities for photoshoots.

The Matrix has got to be one of my favourite movies. Anytime I see it on TV, I drop what I’m doing and eagerly sit down to watch, so when I got a sneak peek of Bent’s item, I just about squealed.

The Cyber Matrix prop comes with 10 great poses, perfect for any sci-fi inspired photography; doesn’t just have to be Matrix even though there’s some instantly recognizable poses straight from the movie.
