LOTD #275 – I Want You

 

i-want-youHe just knew she meant him.

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

This post has taken much longer to appear than I had planned.  This outfit is from a Belle Epoque gacha from the June (I think) round of Jackpot Gacha.  I fell in love with this outfit when I saw, and I had to have it.

But, of course, as with all gachas, the piece you really want/need is always the rare.  I played waaaayyy too many times and ended up with a ton of extras, but I managed to snag 2 rare corsets and 1 ultrarare (which is the one I’m wearing in the picture).

I’m still wearing my Kori Catwa head.  I haven’t taken it off since I put it on.  I really want to buy another one, but I’m waiting to for the Bento project to make it to the main viewer, then to Firestorm, before I do.

Speaking of Bento, I’m also curious to see how the new bones will affect posing animations and dance animations.  I personally see the new hand bones as being more useful in AO and posing animations, but we shall see.

I AM looking forward to having pretty mesh hands that aren’t stuck in one permanent pose – Vista Animations has shown some of their work already, and it looks cool!

In the meantime, I’m still digging through inventory and finding gems like this to take photos of.  I’ve even sworn off of shopping (gasp!) until I open everything I’ve already bought – which may take a while.  😀

My Ithaca – LOTD #262

My Ithaca

She leaned on him lightly, testing his strength.

Feeling his warmth, his reassuring presence, the comforting beat of his heart, she relaxed, melting into him.

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

I was lucky enough to get early access to the Pose Fair and one of the things I snagged was this gorgeous couples pose from Glamrus Poses.

I don’t often get a chance to pose with my lovely husband, so I like to take advantage when an opportunity presents itself. 😀

Called ‘Never Be Alone,’ I bought it as soon as I saw it.  I love how her hand rests gently on his shoulder, and how she leans into him.

There are tons of amazing poses at Pose Fair this year, so make sure you visit before it closes.  The fair is open until March 26th at midnight, so you only have a few days left!

Poser – 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. 😛

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.

LOTD #171 – Dark Underworld

LOTD 171

He faltered as she paused, turning slowly.

“You doubt my powers?” she asked in a deceptively calm voice, as the ghostly lights flickered about her.

“No, mistress,” he whispered, trembling.

Genre is an event I found long ago that has become one of my favorites.

The items are all $100L or less, so my Lindens go farther than usual.

I needed that this round, because there are so many amazing items!

The theme is “Underworld,” and though I didn’t think I would find much, I was so wrong. 😀

This drop-dead gorgeous gown is from Les Encantadas.

The bracers and shoulder pieces are included and I love the way the silver and blue complement each other.

The floating flames are from Paper Moon – I saw them advertised on Plurk and had to have them!

They come in three different versions – white (pictured here), washed out, and turquoise.

They added the perfect ghostly/arcane touch for my photo.

I am in love with this breathtaking headpiece from Black Pearls.

As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what kind of photo I wanted to do.

I’m a sucker for horns anyway, and this piece is so well-made and intricately detailed. 😀

The stunning hair is from Truth, of course – a recent release.

The cascade of curls down the front are gorgeous, and the raven color completes the look.

The skin is another new acquisition from WoW skins, courtesy of their group lucky boards.

I wanted something paler than I usually wear and Amanda fit the bill perfectly.

Genre just opened on the 15th, so you have plenty of time to head over there and pick up some of this deliciousness for yourselves!

Lots of News!!

Apparently it was a busy weekend for lots of people, not just me. 🙂

So I have lots of tidbits to share with you today.

Here they are (in no particular order):

  • Tuty’s has released a new Kid Girl AO.  I don’t need a child AO, but some of the anims might be useful for routines.
  • A&M Mocap has released a new dance – The Real Twerk 3.
  • The A&M Mocap Maniacs are looking for choreographers – find all the details here.
  • Since today is May 4 (if you’re a Star Wars geek like I am, you know what that means!!), Starlite Theater is putting on a themed performance tonight at 7pm SLT.  I can’t decide if I want to go as Princess Leia or C3PO. 😀
  • Firestorm has released a new beta version of the viewer.  They’re calling it a beta because there are still some issues/bugs they need to fix, but there are a TON of new features.  I am most excited about the updates to the phototools and the ability to add filters (like you can in the Black Dragon viewer) before you take the photo.  Saves me post-processing time.  🙂
  • Bright Canopy has announced their invitation-only early access Pre-Launch on May 19th at noon SLT.  Read all about it here.

Lots of exciting stuff happening.

Enjoy your Monday, folks!

LOTD #102

LOTD 102I wasn’t sure I’d find anything I’d like at this round of Collabor88.

The theme is ‘punk’ and I figured I’d stop in, window shop, and leave.

Nope!

I found this fabulous dresser from Commoner called ‘Pretty in Punk.’

I also loved the ‘Punk Rock’ neon sign from floorplan.

I loooove floorplan – almost all the items are copy/mod, so they are great for using as props.

You can’t see it in the pic, but the sign blinks.

It comes in various colors – I chose the white.

The candles are from my visit to We ❤ Roleplay.

They are from aisling and they come in several colors and various sets.

And they are mesh as well as copy/mod!
