Week21 - The Same Dammed thing....

I admit it I am wearing the same dammed thing as everyone else........

Blame Achariya and her Viral Meme's!! Many years ago when an Art Student, we would all be given basically the same assignment. Amazingly, the scope and variety in the Artwork was always unique. I must admit that lately my interest in fashion has been a bit meh..and eh..but only because I have been playing around with new things, Windlight and making my own poses.
(have no fear pose poses are terrible..) Truely my pictures are moving in a new and different direction and though my blogging has suffered I am hoping to see real results to share in future posts....

Week 20 -In the Red!!!

This week SL and RL have been evil to me......resulting on not being inworld all that much. At the same time I have been fooling around with a few things which hopefully I can share later; Poses, photographing different Sims, and attending sales and fundraising efforts in SL.

After being a blond for quite a while I suddenly got the urge to try Red.....For clothes, Red is second to black as my favorite colour...and with hair it helps to have more than one colour simply because blond doesn't always work.

Everything I'm wearing is a response to a sale or a fundraising effort. Ivalde and Truth are having a dress and hair sale. The Key is from Lazy places and is from a co-operative effort on the behalf of Shir Dryke by a number of SL designers, HOH will hopefully raise enough to enable Shir to recieve a much needed operation, with any extra money's going to related charities.

The Pictures were shot in the one of a kind Rouge SIM home of the Rouge Lounge Gallery and Boutique. Info on the HOH fundraising efforts can be found here on Flutter Memel's Blog.

Week 19 - It's all about the Hair!!!

This week RL issues have been taking me away from SL and shopping. I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of my favorite hairs at the moment and see them all together on a page. I wear a lot of Blond in SL, not sure why but it is a colour which goes well with my Avie. Most of the time, the blond colours are of the shorter variety, longer styles are too Barbieish for me. These are not all of my favorite designers as there are a number of hair designers that I will buy other colours from as the hair looks better on me from them in those colours.

I find it very interesting to see the variety of textures offered by designers. Blond seems to be a difficult colour to texture and get a realistic look from and each designer has a unique feel to their hair. In the future I may show some of the other hairs in darker colours that I like with some of my other favorite designers. I am always looking for new hair, designers and colours!

Week 18- On a Snowy Evening...

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound's the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

Those of us who inhabit the Northern Climates are now into the coldest part of the year. Snow covers the ground and it seems as though spring will never come. Children hope for snow days and we pull out our Ski's, Snowboards and Skate, go Tubing or just take walks in the woods on snowy evenings....

I want to share some of the lovely items for winter, that don't make me look like the Michelin man! Which is what I look like in RL at this time of year....

Week 17 - Blogger Challenge Ctrl-Shift-H

When Myatala introduced a new Blog/Plurk/flickr challenge I realized that this one was just up my alley!

1. Take a snapshot of your Home location in SL. (Post-process as much or as little as you wish; if you want to do a collage of things from your SL home, that's cool, too!)
2. Post snapshot to your blog, plurk timeline, flickr stream, whatever.
3. Comment here (on her blog) with link to your participation post/plurk/whatever.

I moved to a new home back in September and I won't lie I just love this place! My Home is in the Elven Sims and the landscape features are so pretty. I love the fact that I can swim or boat all around the area, explore, take pics, and the seasons change too. Initially I had a wonderful time shopping for my house which is a fairytale-like cottage on stilts. These sims operate according to a theme of high fantasy but I wanted my home to be humble as befits a young Elf just starting out. I have since placed a New York Loft overhead which has been featured in my blogs. I really enjoyed decking out my home for Christmas and snow arrived several weeks before the season. I am looking forward to spring and I'm sure that it's gonna come weeks before it does in RL.
