A dip with the Forest Fae

Fae 1

I’m still getting my windlights remade, as well as making some new ones. I always try to keep them more natural, as I do on location shoots, and don’t edit my photos, other than putting them behind my blogging template. I sometimes will blur a nose triangle, or smooth a wonky pose crunch, but I want people to see the items, and not have to guess what they are.

I’d have to say that is something I do, due to being a designer, more than being a blogger. I know more than enough friends who have linked me to ads, from marketplace or flickr, and we have a good time of trying to figure out what exactly they are selling on the ad.

I have hard times making windlights that made hard shadows, which still being light enough to see everything, when shooting under prim obstructions, like these trees and mushrooms. I do like how this turned out tho. While the shadows are very very soft, it gives me a sort of moonlit glow.

Enough about me tho, lets get to the goods!

I almost didn’t go to Collabor88 this round. It’s not an event I always shop at, I have to admit. I am glad I did tho, as I not only found an item I really love, but I found a new to me store.

Bauhaus Movement is the store. They made the headscarf with all the flowery bits on it. It takes a bit of creativity to use it. LadyLight has it too, and we both just sort of chucked off bangs and bits, off of mod hairstyles, to make it work to our liking.

We both will be continuing our coverage of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Here I show you some of the items from May’s Soul, these forest fairy clothing and branch bits. I also have on a collar from A Master’s Eye, which is really lovely. I don’t have a use for a slave collar, but I do love the design of it.

IRL I tend to enjoy organic looking jewelry. Things that are offset, and unbalance, or inspired nature itself. This piece delivers that for me.

I am posting a day after Fifty Linden Fridays. I really tried to get this out last night, and this is why i normally don’t blog the round, in general, haha. Glam Affair tends to leave their items out late, so please hurry on over, and see if the skins are still out. There are 2 tones in the pack, with lots of eyebrow colour options (which surprised me, haha). They had cute little glasses on for the round too.

Carry the burden of my Sins

MY LAPTOP IS BACK!

So I have somethings a bit different for you today.

I lost a lot of my windlights, as they typically are in the program files of SL. When I had my data transferred, before the laptop was sent off to the other side of the country, they only saved my user folder.

So I was trying to go thru some of the old tutorials I did to create those I didn’t have, when I came across one I really wanted to do for a while. That was making a mirror-like water effect.

I managed to do it, after some fandangling.

I chose to use these heels from Deadpool to showcase my new windlight. I’m lucky enough to have been long time friends with the creator. It is always interesting to see what friends are up to inworld, and play with their creations. Cheers to those who have put up with me all these years, haha.

The heels are black, with silver accents, and the wonderful skeleton heel. They are 100% original mesh, and come in a gold version as well. The skin I am wearing is grey, and then I threw in some black nails. It probably would have been simpler to just make the shots black and white in photoshop, but I enjoyed making these naturally in sl.
