Berry’s SL Yearbook Smile Challenge

Hello Readers!

My winter break is just about up, and I am not too excited about that. Then along comes Berry with a fun new challenge! I have really been enjoying the images in the Flickr group and was inspired to do my own, especially when Berry mentioned PicMonkey…O – M – G!  That site has given me what I have been looking for for a long time and I know I have heard about it before but never bothered to go look…a TOTAL fail on my part!  Here is my addition to all the fun SL Yearbook photos:

I achieved this fun photo with the use of PhotoShop and PicMonkey. I used the AnyPose HUD and blended two expressions to get my smile.

Thanks Berry for bringing back your Memes. This one was a fun way to start the new year!

Introspection

Hello Readers,

Just a quick post to share this lovely outfit from Artizana and my thoughts. As you may know I am a Miss in Miss Virtual World. This coming Sunday is the final challenge and a winner will be named. I will be cliche and say we are all winners, because it is true, but you will see in a future post why this competition/contest/pageant has meant to much to me and caused so much introspection. Consider this post a teaser.

When I put on the newest creation from Daine Fraina of Artizana, an image came to mind that I just had to shoot. I had recently acquired the latest windswept hair from Argrace and had always wanted to toy with the “closed eyes” from Boudoir. I am generally not a fan of an open mouth or parted lips on my avatar, but it seemed very fitting for what I had in mind. The Elysion sim is lovely and I knew I would find just the cliff to stand on, to capture the quiet moment I had envisioned in my mind.

I am a role player at heart. I learned how in SL (among many other things…don’t get me started on how amazing I think SL is) and still role play to this day (on other avatars).  So I imagine Prisilla was taking a moment for herself, stealing a moment of solitude to reflect on the blessings in her life and the fact that something she had worked so hard to achieve was about to reach its conclusion.

Summer’s End

Hello Readers!

Summertime cannot end soon enough for me.  I am sure there are a fair amount of you who love summer and based on where you might live in the world it could be very nice for you. For me however, summer is quite warm and very nearly uncomfortably so. I am never sad to see the summer come to an end, and I always enjoy the summertime thunderstorms we have had here lately. They signal a change in seasons is coming soon!

My SL mom (Discovering Destiny) makes all sorts of lovely things, so many I can’t blog them all!  When I saw these latest releases I just HAD to be sure I photographed them for you.

FashionArt: Lybra

Hello Readers!

I am not sure if it was the lovely FireBird Designs Blue Peacock suit I wore yesterday, but I was in such a mood for suits that I brought out man Silly (aka a recent release called Cain by 7 Deadly S{k}ins) and slipped into this artistic exclusive creation for FashionArt called “Drake.”Lybra for Him 2k|CREDITS| skin & shape > Cain by 7 Deadly S{k}ins | outfit > !:Lybra:! Drake (includes jacket, pants, belt and shoulder feathers) | hair > /Wasabi Pills/ Dylan  – Black coffee | pose > Posesion

Drake isn’t the only FashionArt exclusive Lybra has to offer.  There is also “Captive Heart.”

Lybra for Her 2k|CREDITS| skin & shape > 7 Deadly S{k}ins (shape is Wrath, skin is Easter Gacha 04) | outfit > !:Lybra:! Captive Heart (includes wings, animated head piece [blood and sparkles], mesh top, sleeves and panties, clothing layer shirt) | shoes > Manhattan by Essenz (also at FashionArt) | pose > Everglow

I found both of these outfits so theatrical.  They are very well crafted and sure to bring some drama to your wardrobe. (The good kind!)  See them for yourself at FasionArt, going on now until May 31st.

Thank you for reading!

Item of the Week

IOTWLogo_800px in width

As I wrote about in a previous post, Nariko and I often bounce all kinds of ideas off one another.  One of them was Item of the Week.  I honestly can’t recall how that conversation went, but I know it had something to do with the popular “Look of the Day” posts of bloggers.  We took it a step further when we thought on how most models in SL are expected to style.  Typically we are given a theme and expected to style to the theme.  Nariko and I thought it would be fun to mix it up and not go with a theme to style to, but an item to style with.  So Item of the Week (IOTW) was born!

Here is what you need to do to participate:
1. Join the IOTW Flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/iotw
2. Style with the named item in any way you desire.  (The ITOW will be declaredon this blog every Friday.)
3. Take a photo, upload it to Flickr, rename it “IOTW – [item] – [avatar name]” and add it to the IOTW group.
4. You may include a description of your styling process, link it to your own blog for your style card, or whatever you like. The sky is the limit!

Our goal with ITOW is to inspire you to style whatever your heart desires, whatever story you wish to tell, all based on the Item of the Week. You can style as many looks as you like, or even skip a week or two. No prizes. No regulations. No judges. Just created for your own pure styling fun and as a way to put that inventory of yours to work and share your talent with the virtual world! Designers, if you like, you can also create outfits and items surrounding our IOTW item as well, or even give them out as your month’s or week’s group gift so that customers can walk in to your store to style a whole look with it.  If you choose to do so, do let me know and I will happily share that on my blog.  So here we go…

WEEK ONE = HELMET!

Ready? Set? STYLE!

We look forward to bearing witness to your unbridled creativity!

Prisilla & Nariko
