Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind..

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines, and silver hooks
~ John Donne ~

Magical Universe..

“When the reason for a thing’s being illuminated, it doesn’t hold the same mystery it does when it is unknown, which is both a wonderful and a horrible revelation. It’s wonderful because it’s like peeking into the universe and understanding a tiny bit of its complexity. It’s also horrible because a little bit of magic is removed from the world with each discovery.” ― Bradley Somer, Fishbowl

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.

 

 

Practice Makes Perfect!

I know that I haven’t really been blogging as of late; lack of inspiration and the realization that it is now indeed summer; meaning my time is split in half between RL and SL. But I think that I might have finally gotten my groove back by playing around with pictures once again. I was finally able to do a few things that I had been wanting to do for a while now; Making water drops and figuring out skin and eyeshadow. To many it might not see like that big of a deal but to a beginner like me it means to the world to have finally figured these little things out.

 

Meh...

Falling Apart

 

 

Flaming Pear: Flood Photoshop Plugin

A plugin came to my attention thanks to the ever resourceful Strawberry Singh while reading her blog the other day. It’s called Flood from Flaming Pear. They have a lot of plugin that they offer for a two week trial period. I began to think to myself what could I possible create while finally being able to control the water. First things first; I needed to find a windlight setting that could bring a bit of magic to the photograph that I was about to take. Luckily there is one that I had downloaded a while ago from Strawberry Singh (didn’t I tell you all she is the mother of bloggers, queen of photography!) It’s called Amethyst from the Berry Windlight Settings and gives off a wonderful night glow that is purplish to me at times. You can find more of her amazing windlight settings here!

Once I began to work, I found that I simply couldn’t stop at just one picture as there are so many poses that I have which could work out perfectly with the right water. So here is what I created, hopefully it inspires someone else… I’m really proud of what I created, well still a bit questioning about the third picture.. I might have done better without the sparkles but then again we are our own worst critic….

Monday Meme: Second Life Friends List Meme

Well it’s the dreaded Monday once again but it’s almost over for myself at least. There is one great thing about Monday’s and that’s Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes, which bring far too much joy as of late. I believe this is my third week doing one in a row so I am feeling all kinda of special about myself.

 

For this week’s Monday meme I thought it may be fun to grab a friend from your inworld friends list and then both of you can answer the following series of questions about your lists. It’s optional though, you can just answer the questions on your own if that’s easier.

Meme instructions: Grab a friend from your second life friends list (optional) pose with them and/or answer the following questions. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your picture in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

 

When I read the above, I got really excited and then nervous…Who could I ask to help me out other than the SL Husband/RL Best Friend….I’m going to have to grow some balls and ask someone…who do I love to be around, who makes me laugh so hard I want to cry at times. The answer to those questions was a few but one stood out; My Bass Sissy, Topaz. Why do I call her Bass Sissy you might be wondering; well we have a connection through music that can’t be broken.. well that and ball gags (don’t ask…)

[14:00]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): ooooo have a favor to ask you ^^
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): yes?
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): be my partner for Monday Meme
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): for what?
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): Monday Meme!
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): oy
[14:01]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): *passes link*
[14:01] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): whats that?

So to my delight she said yes but she began asking more and more questions and ended up choosing the theme for our pictures. ^^

[14:22] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): need to be dressed in a specific way?
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): nope
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): wear what you want
[14:22] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): you want a themed pic for ya blog?
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): just suppose to be pic of friends
[14:22]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): wear what ya want.
[14:25] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): pin up?
[14:25]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): ooo we could if you like
[14:25] ᴍᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴘᴀz (TS Topaz): yaaaaay

But then I also wanted to ask my SL Brother, who I had been listening to spin while trying to get everything together finally. So I chose the approach below… Couldn’t deny his littler sister today!!!

[16:06]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): you love me so much you wanna do something for me?
[16:06]  Sɨℓνεя Sɦɨɳε Aẕεя (Silverchild24): 😀
[16:08] Uncle Ruiz (RuizDelAguila Vaniva): hahahahahahaah yes sis tell me

The above lead to him agreeing to take part in this as well. I had a great time and took photographs which I believe are amazing having come from someone such as myself. I hope that you ll enjoy them as well as the answers to the questions.

Monday Meme: Color

Well Monday has rolled around once more and it’s time for another one of Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes; This week it’s all about color! You are suppose to blog a picture of your favorite color or colors that you like. It shouldn’t be a huge shock that my favorite color is Silver of course but trying to get the right picture was quite a pain for me this morning but I finally got one while listening to a friend play music so I ended up with a bit of an action shot from my sister Topaz’s dance hud that I was on.

But Also there was an outfit that I had gotten not to long ago which is really reminds me of spring which I am in love with. So I decided to take a picture in that which was going to be the only thing in this post. The colors are just so crisp and rich, once you see it you’ll understand why I feel in love with it!
