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. 🙂

I’m a sucker for soft hair styles, and when I saw this hair from No Match, I had to have it.

I got at the Boho Culture Fair (which ended on November 2, sorry).

When I saw this dress at Tres Chic, I fell in love with it.

It’s classic, vintage, and the epitome of elegance and romance.

Tres Chic ended yesterday (sorry again), but you can try the mainstore or MP to see if you can find it.

I love it, and I know it will be a staple in my wardrobe.

In my recent shopping forays, I made a visit to the Gacha Garden event.

I know, I know, I’ve sworn off of gachas.

I still play them occasionally, but only if it’s items like shoes or hair, and I like all the colors.

(Because I can never have enough shoes!)

However, while I was there, I stumbled across the harp gacha from Muse.

I’d been looking for a harp, and this seemed like serendipity.

One pull, and I got the white.

Score!

White goes with everything. 😀

So I slipped into my gorgeous dress, fixed my adorable hair, and hopped on the harp, which comes with 6 built-in poses.

Two of them are playing the harp, but I loved the dramatic flair of this one.

I also had fun playing around with this photo in Photoshop.

I love adding textures and I’ve recently discovered the ‘blend if’ technique, so I’ve been experimenting with it as well.

A vignette layer was added at the end – I love how it gives the edges of the photo a dark blue tinge.

I should start calling these ‘Look of the Week’ posts instead of LOTD posts. -.-

It’s gotten crazy busy for me, but in a good way.

Since today is Halloween, I wanted to get this pic posted, even if it’s almost over. 😛

This is a costume I wore for a performance at the Main Event Show Lounge for our Halloween show.

I love Boudoir, but a lot of their items do not ‘dance’ well.

Luckily for me, this one did, because I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. 😀

Since this was purely a ‘fun’ pic for me, I have edited it in Photoshop.

I’ve added the green sparkles, as well as some of the spooky green highlights.

I am constantly amazed at the flexibility of Photoshop and how much fun I have playing around with different options and features.

I have several programs that will add effects for me in one-click, but I get much more enjoyment from playing around myself and seeing what cool effects I can make.

It’s been a quiet evening here, not one trick-or-treater at all.

I hope you are all enjoying your Halloween.

Me, I’m ready for fall, Thanksgiving, and turkey. 😛

I am constantly on the lookout for cool and amazing things I can use either in a routine or for a LOTD post.

I try not to buy the same things that you see over and over and over on fashion blogs/feeds.

Sometimes it’s hard not to, though, especially when it’s something as flat-out fabulous as this headpiece from Zenith, out now at We ❤ Roleplay.

WHRP ends on August 30 (that’s tomorrow, in case you want to hop over and pick up some of this gorgeous for yourself).

When I saw this piece, my jaw dropped and I had to have it.

It’s so elaborate and detailed and amazing and now it’s mine!

I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it (I bought it when WHRP opened on August 5th) and the opportunity finally presented itself.

When I saw this sign from floorplan for FLF, I bought it on a whim, thinking to use it in a routine.

Then I opened the box and realized it was texture change – done and done!

This amazing tattoo from Letis has been hanging around waiting for that same perfect opportunity – I love it when things come together. 😀

I added this fabulous hair from No Match that I got at the Vintage and Cool Fair.

Throw in a metal bra/thong from May’s Soul and voilá – Dangerous.
