Poser – LOTD #261

LOTD 261

Her eerie blue eyes followed him as he moved around the room.

It made the hair on the back of his neck stand up.  What was she up to?

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

Today’s LOTD post is brought to you by the Pose Fair 2016. 😀

I saw a blurb in one of my blogger groups about requesting early access as a blogger, and I thought, “Why not?”

I mean, I blog, I love poses (I own around 2000 of them at last count), and who doesn’t like early access?!

Honestly, I didn’t think that I would get it, but I did.  So I got to spend a couple of hours yesterday perusing all the stores without having to fight lag. 😛

I have many favorite pose stores and lots of them were at Pose Fair.  Several of the stores had out free or low cost gifts, which of course I snatched up.  You can never have too many poses. (Or I can’t, anyway!)

One of the pose sets that caught my eye was the new belly dance series from Black Tulip.  I love her work, and I couldn’t resist.  I know that I can use these as transitions in dances, so I get double-duty out of them.

Pose Fair 2016 opens today at 12pm SLT, so hop on over and check out all the amazing poses!  I know I will be making more than one visit. 😛

Goodness and Light – LOTD #260

LOTD 260

Arms outstretched, she watched, a small smile playing about her lips.

Oh, sure, she looked like an angel.  I knew different.

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

I had some extra time today, so I have been going through all my goodies and trying to get organized.

A never-ending process, to be sure, given my shopping addiction. 😛

So many things I love about this picture, not the least of which is the gorgeous skin from Glam Affair.

With Skin Fair set to open in a week (on March 11th), I am excited to see what newness awaits.  Since I have become a mesh head collector, I am curious to see what appliers I will see/find that work with my mesh heads.

I had been wearing the same skin for years (literally) and found a new one I liked at last year’s Skin Fair.  This year, with more heads and options, I can’t wait to see all the gorgeousness. 🙂

The dress is from Sakide – a new-to-me designer, but I love the flowy feel of this dress.  It comes with a texture HUD, so there are lots of color options.

When I saw these foot wraps from Friday, I had to pick them up – I have the previous set she released, and I use them all the time.  I’m sure I will use these just as often!

The jewelry is from Real Evil Industries, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite jewelry designers.  I just picked up a set of rings over at the Whore Couture Fair that I was drooling over.

Say My Name – LOTD #259

LOTD 259

Standing in the shadows, she hid her face.  “What’s your name?” he asked.

She lowered her arms slowly. “Whatever you want it to be,” she answered.

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

Not gonna lie, I’m totally stoked about this picture.  😀

I love playing with lights and shadows and I am so pleased with this way this one came out.

I really did no editing to it, other than cropping and adding my signature.  All done in-world with a projector and windlight.

Yesterday I finally made it into the Whore Couture Fair (thank goodness for Seraphim, so I can make my shopping list, and get in/get out of laggy events!) and picked up this fabulous outfit from Abrasive.

It comes with system layers and all manner of appliers.  The body stocking is separate from the top/bottom, so there are lots of options for wearing.  I also found these fantastic heels from Essenz at the Whore Couture Fair.

Essenz is one of my favorite shoe designers, and when I saw these, I had to have them. I know I will get lot of use out of them.

Exposeur still has their sale going on, and one of the items you can get is this amazing prop, called ‘Girl at the Window.’

I ended up using a pose that isn’t part of the prop, but it still looks amazing. Right now, all the props at Exposeur are $100L or less, so run over and grab some of this fantastic stuff!

Waiting Game – LOTD #258

LOTD 258

She stretched out her long legs, her world-weary eyes watching the crowd as they passed.

It had been a slow night.

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

I think I’ve finally unpacked all the goodies I picked up at the current round of Shiny Shabby.  So many great gifts from designers!

When I saw this lingerie set from AMD, I knew I wanted to use the Exposeur “Red Light Showcase” prop I picked up at the sale.

The lingerie set comes with appliers, so a couple of clicks and I was all set.  Then I found these fantastic heels from Azoury.

Pumec had a gift set out, so I grabbed it, though I’ve never tried any of their skins.  Wow – such a generous and gorgeous gift!  A system skin and appliers for everything, including my Maitreya body and my Lelutka heads.  I’m in heaven. 😀

Definitely going to head over to Pumec and check out what I’ve been missing!

Decisions, Decisions – LOTD #257

LOTD 257

She always had such a hard time making up her mind. “What should we have for breakfast, Bruiser? Hmmm?”

The puppy whined in response and she nodded her head.  “Bagels it is!”

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

This LOTD is brought to you courtesy of the generous designers of Shiny Shabby (mostly). 😀

I went to Shiny Shabby to try my hand at the Glam Affair applier gacha.  I know, I know, I am supposed to be on a gacha moratorium.  But the applier was so gorgeous!

It’s an anniversary round for Shiny Shabby, so most of the designers have put out free gifts.

They include this cute hairstyle from DeLa, a new-to-me hair store, but one that I will be visiting soon. 😛

This fantastic rose skirt is from Agapee and when I opened the box from Friday, I was in love.  I don’t usually wear socks or flats, but these were just too gosh-darn adorable! Plus, they matched the skirt perfectly.

A quick search in my inventory and I found this cute top from Purple Moon, one of the gifts in their recent Cherries on Top hunt.

A much more casual look than I usually sport, but I’m diggin’ it. 😀

Come Into My Bower – LOTD #255

LOTD 255

She stepped out onto the balcony, pausing to inhale the crisp morning air. She smiled, thinking of last night.

Her smile broadened as she wondered who would end up in her bed tonight.

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

I’ve been inspired the last several days to do LOTD posts.

Part of the inspiration was the fantastic sale at Exposeur – so many items I’ve wanted, but had resisted buying. 😀

So when they announced the sale, I ran right over and picked up all the goodies – including this fantastic princess tower.

I know I’ll get good use of it – both as a photography prop and as a prop in a future set.

The adorable hair is a group gift from Truth – one of my favorite hair stores.

The outfit is from BE Designs – a new store for me, but I love this outfit.  It comes with system layers and appliers, so I can use it for photos with my mesh body and also have the option to wear it onstage if I wanted. 😀

If you haven’t been to Exposeur, take a trip over to the mainstore. I think the sale is still on, but even if it isn’t, there’s a ton of great items. 🙂

Caged – LOTD #254

LOTD 254
As the first strains of the saxophone sounded, she rose gracefully. This stage, er, cage, wasn’t big, but it was all hers.

She smiled wickedly and began to undulate her hips.

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

I saw a notice on Plurk a few days ago that Exposeur was having a huge sale on props and poses.

I have quite a few props from Exposeur, and a quite a few more I’ve had my eye on, but I couldn’t bring myself to splurge.

The unexpected sale is due to the owner’s RL pet needed some unforeseen surgery.  Having just gone through the trauma of this with my own pet, I wanted to help.

So, off to spend my L$ I went. 🙂

One of the first things I picked up was this fantastic burlesque cage.  It comes with 10 built-in poses and is a fabulous photography prop.

Plus, it’s copy/mod, so I can use the poses in other HUDs, and I can use the cage in a routine (which I’m sure I will do!).

So if you like Exposeur’s stuff (and who doesn’t?), run over and check out the fabulous sale.  The large props are $100L – a steal of a deal, and you get to help the owner save a precious pet. 🙂

Last Look – LOTD #253

LOTD 252

He called out to her; she looked back, a question in her eyes.  She saw his face and smiled sadly.

Turning, she slowly walked up the stairs and out of his life.

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

It’s always nice when you are sorting inventory to stumble across a gem of buy you’d forgotten all about.

While searching for an elegant updo to go with the dress, I found this uber-glam style from EMOtions hiding in my inventory.

I recently picked up this gorgeously elegant dress from Tiffany Designs at the Designer Circle event.

Maitreya issued a new update to their mesh body, and that has spurred me to try more applier-based clothing.  I still don’t have all the ins and outs of wearing applier clothing figured out, but I’m getting there. 😛

I found these fantastic laced heels from Essenz, which I’ve had for some time, but hardly ever worn.  I have so many shoes – but they are so fabulous!

Amazing what I can find when I go searching. 😀

The pose is one of my own – I’m currently only selling them on Marketplace, but I’m hoping to have an in-world location shortly.

Shot on location at the lovely Ocho Tango sim.

Joy – LOTD #252

LOTD 252

The sunlight was absolutely glorious, and she paused, letting the warmth of the sun kiss her skin.

She giggled girlishly and spun in a quick circle; her spirits lifted.

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

This LOTD is brought to you by my love of this outfit.

When I saw the ad from Caverna Obscura, I was instantly in love with it.  It was a gacha, but if the outfit is cute, I don’t mind playing a gacha, since the whole copy/mod issue isn’t relevant for clothing.

And thus started my descent into the black hole of gacha.  😦

I played the machine a handful of times and got most of the pieces I wanted, the white/silver ones. I got a couple of rares in the gold, so I sold them off.

This outfit had so many pieces that I never managed to get all of them. I used the L$ from the sales of my extras to go back and keep playing.

But the rare white top eluded me.  No matter how many times I tried, I never won it.  After 3 trips to the event to play additional times, I finally gave up.

I spent enough L$ to have just purchased the outfit outright several times over. 😦

After the event was over, I was hoping the machine would appear in the store, but it didn’t.

So, to Marketplace I went, and I found exactly one person selling the piece I needed.  I bit the bullet and bought it, because at this point, after spending the GDP of a small country, I couldn’t stomach the thought of not having a complete outfit.

I do love the outfit.  It has, however, cured my gacha fever.

For a while, anyway. 😀

Going in Circles – LOTD #251

LOTD 251

She paused, sure she had misheard him.  Why did he ask her to wear a formal gown if they were going to be traipsing through a decaying concrete building?

It didn’t make any sense.

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

It’s been a while since I did a LOTD post.  I’ve been so busy taking classes and learning new things, I haven’t had much time to actually sit down and try out some of my newfound skills. 😛

When I saw that Purple Moon had a new group gift out, I headed right over.  I love their designs and this gown was no exception.

It comes with a bolero, not shown here.  I wanted to showcase this gorgeous pearl necklace from Maxi Gossamer, which I picked up at this month’s FaMESHed.

The pearls have a HUD – change the pearls to white or black, change the metal to silver or gold.  It also comes with matching earrings.

The shoes are from Friday, in a perfect shade of pink.  The hair is from a Doe gacha. (I know, I know, but it’s hair!)

The makeup is from Slack Girl – the eyeshadow I’ve had for a while, but I just picked up this new pack of lipsticks from the Bombshell event.

Now that I’ve gotten my Photoshop fix, it’s back to work!
