Stretching

Stretching

I have been popping back and forth to the For Stephanie Fun Fundraiser over the past few days, picking up bits and pieces, and bidding on an Auction piece. I got this very pretty girly dress, and the colour choice is great with the navy and the grey. I wanted to make it a little downplay on the cocktail look of it, and go more for a wear it when I want to vibe with these so cute shoes by sYs. Today is the last full day of Shoetopia so make sure you run over and do another run through to grab what you haven’t already.

The shoes have lots of options to change various parts, and my favourite part is the chain anklet like part that just is there and way cool, and a little punky. So with that in mind I stretched my arm into my inventory and stretched back out again with these great new Stretched ears by Mandala.

These are too cool, and have so many options I was changing HUD panels and getting more and more excited on every click. There are not only three types of ears, human, pixie and elf, but also various sizes of stretch, which can be plugged or tunnels. Then you have the tattoo tips and on the inner part of the ear, which I have turned off but the tips look so cool with the different styles. Then you have about a billion textures to choose from with the plugs, the tunnels and the metals of the piercings, you can also hide or show all attributes, and have materials options for everything, so I have materials on for the piercings and wow they shine so beautifully.

Now I am not a plugs stretched ear kind of girl, lets be honest…but I have always loved Mandala ears, and these just take what we already love to another level. I do admit also that the longer I had them on, and the way they were so easy to skin match to, I was falling deeper and deeper into them, so may just be stretched for a bit.

Speaking of Skins, Lumae has just released the Elvi skin, and while it is not promoted as LeLutka applier based, it has Omega and the fit is superb. I really like the look of the skin, and I am wearing the Izzie’s brows still because I just like them loads too. They actually fit over the top of Lumae’s brows perfectly without any need for no brows options, but there is that too, as well as many colour choices. Lumae has always been a store that provides all you can need, and if you do wear other heads than the ones this says it is for, and you have Omega give it a try, it is great.

Another item I got from For Stephanie Fundraiser is this Conservatory build, so nice and with some cheeky pea pieces it made such a great outdoor cafe style space. The white things in the ground with the plants are actually walls that I sunk down, so versatile, and the Umbrellas are clickable to be folded closed or open and shielding you from the sun…you need those so much got to keep the harmful rays at bay.

More more more more more…that is what I was singing all day today, because these shoes are delightful, they were a definite must have at this round of Shoetopia. They are by Rebel Hope and they have different options in the HUDs when wearing the fatpacks. Such sturdy strappy platforms, that can see you into all the summer styles coming to the grid.

This beautiful gypsy top by Addams is a collaboration piece with Blueberry, that is stunning and so versatile. The colours just pop and the lace and overall detailing make for a very feminine look. I paired it up with a Coco skirt that is at this round of Fameshed. The asymmetrical skirt is actually black but comes up with some bluish to it especially when worn with blue.

I am a brows girl, I love that we have the option to change ours very easily thanks to the options that are out there. Izzie’s just released 5 new brow styles for LeLutka heads, at this round of Uber, and I love them all, not only do they look divine with this Daphne skin that is also Izzie’s but they fit over another skin I have without needing to change to a no brow skin at all. So if you have any that you have been unable to swap with, maybe check these as an option, or just because they are great, because that works too.

Cheeky Pea is always creating some lovely sets at different events, and I usually love combining different parts of one with others, but now she went as far as to also create an essentials set, which comprises of some curtains, bookcases and shelves, which is just wonderful when you need to just add a little something. I used the curtains over these large doors of the build and it completely changed the look. Then adding some of the recent Cheeky Pea release with this awesome nautical inspired pieces, I think as a Pisces this would be my RL at every opportunity.

Speaking of Cheeky Pea there is a Fun Fundraiser called For Stephanie that is taking place this weekend,  and the items will all donate to help Isla’s Sister in her time of need. For more information on that, and I also have some Flair Nails there if you want to check them out, you can tp HERE or see info HERE

The necklace I am wearing is the match to the earrings that I featured a few weeks back, I love the detailing on these sets, so luxurious.

On the Hunt

On the Hunt

I did not realise until I was done with the pic and laying it all out, that I did an almost identical colour palette to the prior post, and have been really feeling my safari colours it seems.

Cureless has released this lovely crop top for the Slink Petites Augment wearers with their Slink Physique bodies. It fits both bodies and Petites options and comes in a wide range of colours and either cotton or vinyl options. Other than the amazing style of the top, and the awesome materials that just made me really get into the fabric options, it is also mod, allowing me to tint the beige option just a tinge more to warm it up towards the colour of my boots.

Because the top has some great under-bust, I went with a Pink Fuel skin because her body appliers have a smaller breast option for less shading, which looks so much more natural with the Slink Petites – they also come with matching skins to the bodies huds with less shading. In keeping with the Pink Fuel I actually opted for one of their Omega applier based skins which Ashia likes wearing, and looks great on Bianca a LeLutka head I do not wear often, she has so much conviction and character I have to make sure that my overall look carries that home, and today it definitely did.

Speaking of carries, how cute is my bag, it includes all the things I need for a shopping expedition, and then some, also it goes wonderfully well with my boots that are at Shoetopia, and the same creator of the bag and my skirt…all Ison and all gorgeous. I actually had a bag like this in the 90’s but black and clear, I once got stopped by Security and asked to check my bag, I stood there looking at them a bit dumbfounded then said ‘ you can look THROUGH my bag’ and walked out – I have always been Sassy – honestly why ask to look into a bag that you can see into without asking.

These ankle boots are awesome, they not only have a great style to them, they are for mid height feet – I was actually really impressed with a lot of Mid height feet styles at this round of Shoetopia, or in my case Deluxe feet that has them all in one – then the open sections of the boots revealing some skin, sexy right.

I kept on with the metal options of the buckles and bag clasps into some really chunky silver jewellery by Mandala, and then with the perfect hairstyle by Tableau Vivant that has options for where you want to wear your hair, being able to let it fall behind the shoulders just showcases the top and the necklace perfectly.

In my Garden

In my Garden

I was really into the fun of taking these pics today, so much so that I made the placement background from scratch just because I was all in. I made the cork the board, the pins and the swatches, I am so chuffed right now, as sometimes it is not just using Photoshop for photo-editing that you should play around with, but really playing with all the features, little by little things come together.

A bit like items in Second Life, Why don’t people just click every button? or try on every item etc in something they purchase that may be a bit more feature driven than something like putting on a shirt. One of the things that made Second Life grow in the first place was creative curiosity. I had a friend who if we were standing still for any amount of time, and he could rez, would start manipulating prims to such a degree that he made jewellery that was so minute and detailed and not once did he use an alpha cheat trick or anything else to get the items as small as they could go. Hair creators were often people that edited their hair so often to make it fit, or reshape it across a shoulder, or just wanted to look a little different than their friends, then went on to create from scratch – mind you this was when things were made in world. It is like me learning software when managing stores in RL, I would just sit and click and sub-menu click and so on until I found things that would never be so visible normally. Only one time did I have to call IT after of course switching it off and on again.

So other than all the lovely floral parts of my post, it is about taking the time to sit down somewhere nice in SL, and cam on yourself or the items and try the huds, each section click away, if smoke starts wafting in then stop, and unpack another. We live in the day of copy and unpacking and redelivery, so if it is copy, and you can unpack another, or just make a copy first if you are worried, get to know those things you liked enough to purchase, see what you can do with it and really get your enjoyment out of it and appreciate also the effort that goes in to making all those things happen.

Breathe has made some divine footwear,  not only for Shoetopia which are the middle and right shoes, but also Fameshed that are the ones on the left that look like kitten whiskers :) so cute. I was also on a mission the other day for a tutu and came across this older dress by Amiable, now often with the fast pace of SL and bodies etc, I don’t get time to go back and revisit older clothing that was prior to fitted and this came up the other day and I was like so excited, as there was no possible reason I cannot wear this dress, I only had to alpha out my upper chest.

I hope you like all the lovely spring looks for the day, the weather is still so incredibly warm down here that it feels right for once all over the world, but then in the US it is snowing in some places, so go figure.

Devil May Care

 

Shoetopia opened its doors the other day and I went running around barefoot in shorts – worked out you have to wear shorts to Shoetopia because of the chance of thigh highs – and a top and so much excitement.

I landed straight away and did my rows, I have this left thing, and I have to start at a point of return that makes sense to me, I do not zig zag, so difficult to know what is going on when you weave to and fro. This event makes it easy, I did the 4 extension rooms first,  then ended back at the start with the sponsors and bought up a ton of footwear. I got so many shoes that one set I wore yesterday and kept the HUD on just to change colour every four or so minutes so that I could wear them all.

These ballet pointe inspired boots are by Slink and they work with the Slink Pointe feet or Deluxe, and if you have on Deluxe the feet will automatically change – wish more shoe creators would use that slink script for that so much ease of use – to the feet needed. If you fatpack – and why wouldn’t you – you can change all aspects of the boots, if single colour you can change the eyelets and heel/sole colours with the HUD, but fatpack lets you change laces too. I kept it black today, because I was feeling hell spawn.

How cool are these amazing wings and horns I picked up from Neo Japan, another event on at the moment and definitely so many great items. I got taken there by ColeMarie Soleil after we ran into her at Fameshed. It was a very big shopping week. Pose Fair is another event on and I got these poses by GingerFish there, how cool is that as a name.

The background is great it is a gacha item at Pose Fair and at the price you just want to keep playing them all, so perfect for photos.

I also went by The Liaison Collaborative and shopped hard as well, I ran around so many times though that courtyard style is kind of adorable and fun to skip around, that I got a little motion sick, and had to recline on my fainting couch. Ok so it was just my couch, but I definitely have had to do that more than once in my years in SL, I tend to get motion sick a lot when being silly.

Credit – POSES (and everything else too)

Many years ago now – wow that flew by – I did a blog post referring to the different types of Bloggers, because there was a general consensus that we were all the same, a few bad experiences were putting Scarlet B’s on our clothing and it was not a good way to feel, or thing to see. It is four years on now, and things have gotten worse, and blogging has changed a lot, how people blog, where people blog and what is considered acceptable.

Now whether you agree or not, when it comes down to it blogging is supposed to be the sharing of information, which is very helpful to all, especially on a platform like Second Life. I could write a novel on why crediting is important on all things, and in the past I actually have, as you can see in that older post, but the other day I was reading some comments on Facebook and by the time I pulled myself away from it, my face was contorted into a very awkward position and I think I ended up with a facial tic.

Crediting POSES was the conversation, and I do not remember who or what started the convo, and I am not about poking at individual people that were in it, but one of the main themes throughout was that crediting a pose when modified in any way was not ‘fair’ somehow. Now I use animare, which is a tool that can be used to move the joints, while it can be used from a standard default ruth stand, it can also mean that if in ‘pose’ you can make changes to the pose that affect it in the moment. It does not change the pose that you can use the pose, again and again, this new way, it just alters it in the moment. For “Fashion” Blogging – please know it is 99% what I am going to be referring to when I say Blogging is Fashion Blogging – this can help with hands that may poke into clothing, or a foot that may go too far back into a stool etc. It can also change how a pose looks if you want to play with it further. Then there is the Neck Poses HUD I did a post on the other day, which in the past I only used animare for. I also use the Slink basic static poses HUD for my Bento enabled Dynamic Hands so that they can sit flat on a bench, or closed fist if that works better, sometimes changing the hand pose, means I don’t have to alter the wrist at all.

These are TOOLS that benefit me as a blogger that uses photos to express a look. They do not take away from the hard work of a Pose creator because it is very often the pose that inspires the photo in the first place. Without a pose, if we all had to start at ruth default stands, we would take fewer pictures and SL would be an uglier place, this is a fact based on those of us old enough to remember that many moons ago poses were very limited, and that you could go to 20 stores in a day and every single ad used the same dozen poses set. Much of blogging was started with the same poses available, and as poses were created we all added to our options from the same pool. Again this work was inventive, stylised, often creating packs of poses purely for the sake of us that needed particular types of stands, sits etc for blogging, we were their customer base, us and Designers.

If someone found poses we didn’t have, the info was passed on through blog post crediting and off you went. Then photography in its own right became a big thing, so there were newer customers to poses stores, and they usually got their information through blogs, then people new to blogging found out the best places to find poses, through you guessed it BLOGS! Designers shop on blogs too for poses for their ads, and this just goes on and on…then when photographers and bloggers could not find more poses they became pose creators themselves, making what they needed, and then opening stores, with the information spreading through the community. People now just as often buy poses because they take fun snapshots for their own Flickr, or just family snaps and so on, they see someone showing a fun group set, and off they go.

The idea is to spread the word about the store, the resource more so than this is the exact pose I used in this picture. My VR Studio HUD tells me the exact name of the pose I am using on my screen while taking the picture, but I do not share that information, because the name of a pose does not help someone find the pose when it could be buried in a stand that is one of the dozens in a store. But what that does do is gives someone interested in new poses a store to go shop at. I am not wanting someone to tp in find that one pose buy it and run out again, I want to send someone to a store, have them jump on every posestand in the store, and buy lots and lots and lots, TP in everyone they know that also loves poses, and make a party of it. Whimsy, Ashia and I did that at Ma Vie’s Poses store the other day, buying all the packs we did not already own. When out poses shopping we usually stand on stands close enough to each other so that while I am trying pack A she can be trying pack B and we buy both each.

One of the other things about poses and pose stores for me has always been that you can take many pictures with a pose, from many angles, but you can also be completely inspired in such a different way than the next person by the same pose. I once used a figure skating pose to get beans out of a high cupboard. Was so far from the concept that the creator of the pose had in mind, but it was indeed that pose creator that made something that inspired the plan. If I had to move my hand to clutch the beans does that mean their creation of the pose and the inspiration it produced is no longer worthy of credit?

I took some pictures yesterday to show that while I could make slight changes, the pose still is and deservedly so belongs in credit to the creator of the pose. Even if you were to say in your post or next to the credits that it was modified, it still gives your readers and customers a starting point, because you can never know what can cause inspiration to happen, or a real love for a creator that comes from something like, oh they create really good straight up and down poses, those are perfect for clothing ads, or they often do hands in front of upper torso and as a jewellery or accessories creator/blogger these are really helpful to me.

First Pictures –

  1. Exact Pose – hands are in the position of my Slink Dynamic hands, not the pose.
  2. VR Studio Pose stand turned to see pose from another angle Neck turned using Neck Poses HUD by Amacci
  3. VR Studio Pose stand turned again, Leg straightened using Animare
  4. VR Studio Pose stand turned, Leg kept in position and arm straightened using

Credit Poses Example 1 Does this make that one pose any less worthy of the credit to the store that I bought it at? I truly believe no. Everything about the pose was beautiful, to begin with, and then tweaking it to get as much out of that one pose to better my post makes it something very worthy of the credit. Second Picture – The second and third picture was again a ‘what I instantly thought of’ compared to the original vibe of a pose, and while I may have moved something it does not remove anything from the pose enough to not credit it. Not too many people would have looked at this pose and thought ‘ I need to get this water out of my ears’ but I did. I had to turn the hand a little bit, and I used the Slink basic bento static pose hud to flatten my hand, but everything else is identical to the poses original look. I also changed my face expression using my LeLutka head HUD. Credit Poses Example 2

Third Picture –

Same exact pose as the second, but this time I moved the forearm away from my head, changed my hand poses, and my face expression and then put on some rollerskates and an outfit that suited that look, with some build pieces that also went along with the vibe and voila. Again the pose creator deserves the credit, because without this pose, this photo would not be this photo. The above photo would not be that photo, I may have never gotten the water out of my ears.

Credit Poses Example 3

So while you may think you shouldn’t, you really really should. If a creator of the pose thinks it has changed so much they do not recognise it, well again they started the ball rolling and I am sure would not mind too much you sending customers their way.

Next time you hesitate to credit something you have changed, think about if tinting a hairbase would mean not crediting it, or if you are like me and you upscale vases almost every other decor filled post… adding strands of hair does not mean the hair is no longer the creation if the hair store, or changing the hue saturation to your picture creates a tone of skin that that skin maker does not do, does that mean you shouldn’t credit the skin?

Second Life was literally built on modifications, the ability to do such things as tweak a pose is a thing we are so lucky to be able to do now with the tools available, because again years ago there was no such thing as animare, or a neck poses HUD, you had to edit the hell out of things, or do tricks of layering with hair on and then off or a big dress skirt off then on to just get your hand outside of it.

Don’t disqualify the original creator of a product you use, that inspired you, made the picture what it is, or helped you along the route to that picture, just because you made some changes. Again the readers want options, they do not want to entirely mimic your look so much that they even stand around on a platform for the day in that pose, they want to know where you shop, just as much as what you bought when you were there, or what you may have received in a bloggers pack etc. They want to jump on a posestand and cycle through things and be inspired too.

I had a lot of fun taking these pictures, and I so loved these newish items from Blueberry in my first picture, the ability to select different colours for the various parts on the shirt dress and the divine boots – that come with three height options as in ankle, knee high and thigh high – was just marvelous. Fitting the dress over leggings by Sn@tch still a must visit for appliers needs, that makes mixing and matching mesh items so much more functional. I felt bad that this hair only got a look in the other day, so full shots this time, it deserved the spotlight.

Then moving over to the great styles of hair by Argrace, we were there shopping in the store the other day and cleaned it out, then I ended up realising that I did not already own the wet look hair that is a must have, for any sort of upcoming summer shots. It made the picture even more fun for me, and then the excessive bangs style in the third pic, also from there with a bangs option that completely covers the eyes.

I really hope this post changes some peoples minds on crediting even with alterations, I personally think it shows a lot of initiative to have done so and told people you have, because those that may have that pose, or know that build or have that hairbase, may never have thought to go in that direction with it.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes…I kind of had more of an excite than intended today, because these new Wedges by Vale Koer are so many options fabulous in the ability to colour coordinate to your look, but when I started rezzing other shoes I owned I realised that they were all mod, and while one may think of only having things mod because you can edit how you wear them, it is also true that it makes for some fun photography options. Also the ability to find some older BOXES that I could rez – I am not a fan of unpacking HUDs, mainly for this reason…I feel like I lost a ton of props in the past year, because now we do not have bags, and boxes and some of the most amazing items to unpack from are now no longer created.

Did I mention shoes? shoes are aces. What is also fun is that Slink just updated their feet so that you can turn off the feet and just wear the ankle section on all their feet, so if wearing sneaker styled shoes that are often lower than this, you still keep your pretty ankles. Update using re-delivery if you already own some.

I grabbed these at N21 which has changed over some of its booths to include 11 New to the event Guest Designers, a nice change up indeed. I like the layout there, as I was able to land elegantly and then just speed around as a floating head and buy all the things I needed. I got a great ringset by Yummy that lets you choose from metal and gemstone options as well as turning off or on each individual ring. Then wearing this adorable knotted T-shirt by Vinyl that has solid or print options in the fatpack, and the gold colour button on the print has this so cute best friends image of french fries and a burger.

I teamed it up with some sporty shorts by The secret store, that also helped tie in the colours I chose on the shoes. All things come together like a treat and with the fatpack options to choose all the parts and colour as you see fit, you have combinations for the rest of your days.

I also ran around Shiny Shabby yesterday and got this beautiful hair you can barely see by limerence, but it does not mean you do not have to go and try it and buy it and love it too. It is lovely and so casually elegant, in a low pony style/
