It's truly amazing how relaxing I find Second Life photography. In days past, it was source of frustration even though I did enjoy the adventure. I hate that I am rarely able to find the time to sit down, put an outfit together, find the perfect location and then spend a few hours playing with the pictures. If only we didn't have to have real life jobs! Summer is almost here for me, however; I only have one more work day before my two month vacation.
The outfit I'm wearing today if from mon tissu. Enough cannot be said about the quality of clothing from this designing team. I really love the Bloomsbury Trousers; the textures are vivid and the mesh is shaped very well. These pants remind me of capris I wear in my real life... Not so much because of the vividness but because of the length. My legs are rather short; so, capris tend to strike me pretty low. With the ultra-short everything in Second Life lately, these are refreshing! The trousers are available in eight patterns, and a free demo is available.
The Oversized Shirt is also from mon tissu. This shirt seriously looks so comfortable; I wish I really did own one! It is the perfect addition to a wardrobe because it is casual enough to be worn with clothing you would lounge in but dressy enough to fit with... well, a nicely made pair of trousers! The shirt is available in nine patterns, and a free demo is available.
I'm really not sure why I have put off the purchase of mesh feet for so long. A reflection of being frugal in my real life, perhaps? With the introduction of the Avatar Enhancement system from Slink, the mesh feet were well worth the price. Why? No longer having to spend very precious time trying to perfectly match skin tones is, honestly, priceless. With Slink's new mesh feet, you simply have to purchase a Slink skin applier from the skin designer of your choice (provided availability of course) and click a button to get a perfect match every time. It couldn't get any easier. Also, if you want a new shoe, you do not have to purchase a whole foot with the shoe anymore; Slink has shoe add-ons and is also allowing other creators to design shoes to fit Slink mesh feet.
Slink has also created an add-on for nails. Many designers are taking advantage of this; a simple search on the Second Life Marketplace will produce hundreds of nail appliers for your hands and feet at rather reasonable prices. Although the initial price of purchase of the hands and feet is a bit up there, it is more than worth it especially if you are a Second Life photographer, blogger or model.
Irene is the latest skin from Izzie's, and just like all her others, it is a beauty! The skin is offered in ten skin tones and includes a modifiable shape, freckles, moles, four brow colors (with the exception of the mocha and cocoa tones), cleavage, a nail base, twelve lipsticks, eleven eyeshadows, eyeliner and a brow shape. A free demo is available. Also, if you would like to try the skin at a cheaper price, three special edition skins are being offered at The Dressing Room Fusion through June 6th.
It is with very deep sadness that I have to tell you about the closing of aDORKable Poses. If you have followed by blog very long at all, you will have noticed that I use a lot of poses from this designer and with good reason. They are extremely well made! Adorkable Peapod's real life is very hectic, and I understand the pressure of trying to keep up with both lives all too well. I wish her nothing buy extreme happiness and success in everything she pursues. Of course I do hold hope that one day she will design again in-world. Through June 9th, you can grab everything at the main store location for up to 50% off per product. There are a few events that Adorkable has already committed to that are coming up; so, you can also expect to see her posing products for a little while longer at special venues.
