Nothing Ventured – LOTD #249

LOTD 249

She paused, something niggling at the back of her mind.

After a few moments, she shrugged, and continued on her way.

2016 has been a bit of a bear already.

Lots of ups and downs, and lots of changes – projects ending, new projects beginning.

One of my projects has been to get a new pose store going in SL.  I love taking pictures, but I often spend (waste) a lot of time looking for the ‘perfect’ pose.  (I do this when choreographing my dances as well!)

So I decided to make my own. 😛

I don’t have many items yet, but I’m slowly working on it.  I think one of my favorite (though exasperating) parts of this project has been making the vendor ads.

The name of the store is Prose Poses (check out the MP store here).  I don’t have an in-world location yet, but I hope to some time in the future.

If you do check it out, let me know – I’d love to hear your feedback!

For the vendors pics, I’ve been collecting mesh heads and using them in the pics for different looks.  I still have a few to try out, but I am loving the ability to change my appearance completely each time. 😀

LOTD 188 - Lost

Her arms raised to the sky, her feet began to move of their own accord.

The spikes of her heels tapped out a staccato beat.

She could hear the faint hum of the lightning bugs as she moved.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Things have been hectic in RL this week, getting everyone back to school and back on a regular schedule.

I’ve been wandering around SL, trying to find new stores and new locations to visit and photograph.

While wandering around looking for shoe sales, I happened upon the Entice store.

It had lots of cute items and reasonable prices, so I just had to pick up this cute dress.

I thought I had the perfect pair of shoes to match, but when I tried them on, they didn’t. 😦

So you know what that means.

More shoe shopping!!!

In the meantime, I threw on these cute boots from Bax and some fabulous hair from Truth.

The lights are an impulse purchase while I was at We ❤ Roleplay, but I’m glad I got them.

It’s nice to be able to add effects in-world, so that I’m not trying to create everything from scratch in Photoshop. 🙂

I got these from Alegria, and another set of lights from Jian, which I hope to use in another shoot later.

The adorable pose is by Kirin, from their Beach Ball set.

Happy Hump Day and here’s hoping the rest of your week goes smoothly!

LOTD #145 – Peace & Quiet

LOTD 145This was one of her favorite quiet spots.

Leaning against the window frame, staring out over the expanse of the calm lake waters.

Today she hadn’t even stopped to take off her shoes.

It had been a really bad day.

LOTD #14

LOTD 14I was deleting old things from my inventory today.

Today my focus was shoes.

I deleted about 8 pairs and then had to quit because – shoes!!!

I came across this old outfit.  I love the jacket, but it doesn’t fit very well, no matter how much I adjust things.

I love these ankle boots – I have them in black and white patent leather, but I love the suede version.

So I just plopped down on this old cube and snapped a quick pic.
