Bang Bang

First and foremost let me apologize…. I am not badass. At all. In fact, I’m quite the opposite.  So the faux tough girl act you see in the above photo probably looks a little silly.  It’d probably be a lot more logical for me to be holding two kittens instead.

That being said, today is talented blogger, pose maker, and all around Mr. Nice Guy Bouncer Criss‘s one year blog anniversary, and I found it suitable to show off his newest pose set from Bounce This Poses. I’m really digging this set.  It comes with two guns, which are color change, and a variety of poses to choose from.  Great for photos that you need to create a story with, or if you just wanna pretend to look really badass like I did (you’ll probably look a LOT more tough then I looked).

Sakide has released some beautiful tops for Fashionably Late this week.  The tops come with this adorable sculpted bow that wraps around your bust.  A few color are available.  I wish you could see the back of the top in this photo as well because it’s REALLY cute/sexy.

I wanted to mention my jeans as well today.  They are from Crash Republic and they have the best textures on them.  A slight touch of leopard print mixed into the denim, which makes them SO fun.  These are certainly going to be a new favorite.

Lastly, I wanted to show off my new aviators.  I don’t wear sunglasses very often in Second Life, but these are quite cute.  They are from a store called Scrub, which is a new find for me.  The lenses and frames are also texture change.

I guess that’s about it for today.  This week has been filled with lots of new things and it’s only Wednesday!  Have you heard about the new Firestorm FUI Beta?  or how about Direct Delivery for Marketplace that Linden Lab is rolling out today?  Read up on both! They are both awesome.

POLL: Do you change your hair color often in Second Life?

I was a badly behaving blogger and didn’t do a photo for a blog post today, so I figured i’d pester you all with a new poll!  Feel free to comment and explain your answer, or tell us some of your favorite colors to wear!

Metamorphoses

There are days
where all I wish
is that I
could crawl into
a cocoon
close my eyes tight
and after the wind
is done trying
its very best
to knock me from
my branch,
crawl back out
as something
so much
More
than I ever was
before.

Sunset Romance

Hey all!  I wanted to give you a glimpse of one of the new WindLight settings that I will be releasing in a pack soon here on my blog.  The one above is called Sunset Romance.  I’ve actually done zero editing aside from some cropping to this photo so that it can take part in the Unedited Challenge.  I am certainly not as talented as other WindLight makers such as Luna Jubilee, Strawberry Singh, & Elysium Eilde (just to name a few of the many), but I figured i’d give it a shot and contribute to the growing collection of beautiful WindLights that are available.  I hope to have these up in the next couple days or so, so stay tuned.  I think i’ll add a resources section to my blog and put them there…

Enough of my rambling.

Isn’t this dress awesome? Sexy? Daring? Brilliant? Something that gravity, wind, and all sorts of elements would prohibit in real life (unless you possibly duct taped your boobs to it….ouch?), has been made possible through mesh, and pure awesome in Second Life.  I just love this.  It’s from a store called strip’d fashion, owned by Valentine Rexen.  This is a newer store on the grid I believe, and it looks like it’s going to be filled with a lot of great items.  This dress comes in a few striped colors, but the black and white sang to me.  The store is not only available in world, but also on marketplace.

I think that’s it for the day! Enjoy your Sunday! <3

Unedited.

I thought I would start off this next official year of my blog with a photography challenge for Second Lifers.  This challenge isn’t absurdly original, and I know that quite a few photographers in SL never edit their photos, but there are many people who do spend quite a few hours in Photoshop, and sometimes a good old fashioned challenge helps to stretch our creative brains.

The challenge is called Unedited, and your goal is to create stunning photographs within the boundaries of Second Life.  You are not allowed to use any sort of photography enhancing programs, huds, etc…  You can use windlight, lighting, shadows, and your surroundings to create beautiful images. Posing HUDs are allowed and crop/resizing is also fair game.  Aside from that, nothing else!  There aren’t any prizes or major incentives with this challenge, but it does give you an opportunity to be creative and think outside the editing box!

You can either blog your submissions and/or submit them to the Unedited Flickr Group.  (I have it set that photos have to be approved so don’t panic if your photo doesn’t show up immediately).

I can’t wait to see all your unedited, beautiful photographs in Second Life! Happy snapping!
