Vlog Of The Week Challenge: Grunge

 

I’ve been a bit under the weather lately as well as uninspired, which might be hard to believe given all of the goodies I have collected from The Arcade Gacha Events. I am starting to get my groove back for the most part finally. Cassie Middles has created the; ‘Vlog of The Week Challenge’.

Vlog of the Week Challenge. Each week there will be a new theme/idea to build around. Try to do a video around your set up and blog post, so you can show it off and how hard you work on your photos. Don’t blog? Then show off your favorite look or an inspired vlog from the week’s theme, it can be a machinima, a speed edit, a song, a dance, anything, just have fun with it!

So above is my take on Grunge, I was a bit disappointed with the things that I own, as I had a few other pieces that would’ve worked perfectly but they were made years ago; meaning standard sizing only and nothing worked with my mesh body too well. I did a total of 3 outfit and I’ll post the credits below. Have a great weekend! ♥

Predominance

Oakley Foxtrot challenged those of us who attended her BVN Talk to use some smoke in our pictures, so here’s my take upon it, along with lighting and finding my style & going with things that inspire me and not second guessing myself regarding it.

Monday Meme: Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge!

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!

So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!

Meme instructions: Share an image of your Second Life avatar smiling for a yearbook photo. Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the new Second Life Yearbook flickr group, you can also share them in the Blog Memes flickr group if you like.

 

Second Life Yearbook Challenge 2015!

I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.

 

 

Debating…

It’s been 4 months since I have shut down this blog but I have been debating with myself whether or not to start it back up again or not. I might simply use it to show the pictures that I edit, giving credits of the items worn and that’s all. I’ve really come to enjoy editing photos and learning more and more tricks as well as figuring different things out within Photoshop. I suppose in a way it became my safe haven during the end of the summer and early fall and I would like to show off what I now can do. It’s simply a matter of not letting it control my life as it once did with the need to post each and every single day like I tried to do once before. Posting would be pretty all over the place,if I started once more which is fine by me. I simply want to enjoy it and not let it rule or control my time within SL.

So for now I will continue to debate and leave you with a picture that I did a few days ago.

I hope that you all have been well. ♥

Happy Fourth of July!!!!

Happy Fourth of July to Everyone! I hope that you are all enjoying the holiday; I know that I am so far.

I started to think about how old our country is and I wondered if there was a way to mix in the old with the new within SL. So I put together an outfit with something from last year and something just released not too long ago as well.

Also The Dressing Room Fusion opened once again today! I found a really nice product from Izzies; Water Drops that you can add on as a tattoo and/or prim attachment. It’ll make a few photos a bit nicer without having to work so hard for a nice water effect on the body.
