After taking a few photos with my system avatar, I am back in my mesh body and head and loving it!

No more spending time getting rid of jagged edges – I can spend that time adding filters and effects and all that fun stuff. 😛

I like the new expressions in the Lelutka heads, included in the last update.  It’s not quite the variety I have with my LOGO head, but I love the way they look.

I was shopping at Kustom9 when I saw this dress by Tetra, and my jaw hit the floor.

It’s so elegant and classy – I love the lace overlay and the cutout hem.

I wanted some hair that had a bit of messy look, and this fantastic hair from Wasabi Pills was just thing (another fabulous FLF find).

I started searching through my inventory for accessories, and found the earrings from It! and the clutch from Zenith, both items I’ve had for a while.

However, my search also led me to this fabulous ring from Eudora, which is their prize in the Enchantment hunt.

If you haven’t been to Enchantment yet, run, don’t walk – there are some fabulous items.  They are also having a hunt – you need to grab the HUD so you can tp to the participating stores.

It’s a pretty easy hunt and there are some fabulous prizes – like this gorgeous ring, which you get in both gold and silver versions.

I have abstained from shopping until I finished going through all of my recently acquired and unopened purchases.

(I use the term ‘recently’ loosely.)

This gorgeous outfit is one I picked up several rounds ago at Uber.

I saw it and had to have it – I just love the ornate headpiece.

LOTD #94

LOTD 94I love Victoriana and Sci-Fi, so of course I love Steampunk!

I picked up this darling dress from Anachron at Genre a few rounds ago.

So I started hunting through my inventory for accessories.

I was so stoked to wear these shoes – I got them ages ago from Eudora, but I love them.

I knew I was right not to toss them!!

LOTD 94 CUThe details of some of the jewelry and the nail polish deserve attention, so here’s a close-up.

You can’t tell from the picture, of course, but the eyepatch and the necklace having moving parts.

The necklace was CPD’s item for the SteamX hunt.

And though I don’t often wear nail polish, I knew I had the perfect steampunk polish.

When I’m doing these LOTD posts, it is sometimes hard to decide what photos to use.

On one hand, I like to do photos that show the items as they are, so that if you like them, you know what they actually look like!

On the other hand, I love playing around with all the windlight settings in Firestorm and/or playing around in Photoshop to ‘tweak’ the photo.

So this time I decided that I would just include both – since for once I used the same pose. 😛

The first two photos show what the items actually look like in SL.

Here’s my ‘tweaked’ version:

LOTD 94 2I’ll let you decide which one you like better.
