Drowning – LOTD #250

LOTD 250

Oh, sure, she looked normal.  Just a girl, walking down the street.

Why couldn’t anyone see her drowning?

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

I’ve had some fun playing around with the last couple of LOTD pics.

I generally don’t do a lot of editing for many LOTD pics, because I want readers to see the items as they actually appear.

So it was nice to let my inner child out to play for a bit with filters and overlays and all the other new things I’ve learned. 😛

I’m also still loving the Genesis heads.  This look is the Angie head, picked up from a gacha machine.  A mesh head for $99L.  Can’t beat it!

I still have a few new looks to try out, so I’d better get busy!

Fresh Air – LOTD #246

LOTD 246

She’d stepped out for air.

The ballroom was too stuffy.

She was smothering.

Anachron has been a favorite store of mine for quite a while – there’s always something new and unexpected.

When I saw this Empire Dress at Genre, I couldn’t resist. Gorgeous colors and such a flattering silhouette.

I paired it with a fabulous updo from Vanity Hair, and added some fantastic jewelry pieces from It!

I knew I wanted a formal, gorgeous, fabulous, and elegant location for the shoot, so of course I headed straight for Angel Manor.

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.

Hip popped, eyebrow raised,

She nodded towards the sign,

Her eyes questioning.

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

Because I’m cheap a discriminating consumer, I always make it a point to stop by the bi-annual Cart Sale at The Wash, held by the wonderful folks over at Fab Free.

If you’ve never been, you should definitely go – tons of stuff on sale for as low as $10L – including this absolutely stunning skin from Lumae that I’m sporting here.

It comes with appliers for every mesh part/head/body you can imagine, and it’s all only $10L!!

I hate fussing with appliers, but this was super easy – 2 clicks to apply and I’m ready to go.

I love this skin so much, I’m going back to pick up some more – and if you’re not into mesh pieces and parts, it comes with all the system layers too!

While at the cart sale, I came across this sexy vintage romper and bought it (at only $10L, you can’t go wrong) and it is smokin’.

I paired it with these fab heels from Hucci and some vintage hair from Truth.

I’m a sign collector, so I dug through my inventory and pulled out these gems.

7 Emporium is one of my favorite creators – I love the style and feel of the items.

And who doesn’t need a ‘Dancing Girls’ neon sign, right?!

The ‘Woman at Work’ sign is so old that I can’t locate the creator, but it’s a classic. 😀

For this photo, I used my Perfect Effects program and found this vignette overlay – I love the subtle black at the edges.

I better get back to work – hope you all are enjoying your Monday!

LOTD #15

LOTD 15This is an older outfit, so I wandered around trying to find an old-looking sim.

I found the Lost Town.

I never did find any people, but the graffiti was really cool.

I’m not sure whose car is on fire back there, but I didn’t stick around to find out.
