Essential

23 05 2010

I’ve been on a SL break for the last few weeks and that’s why I’ve not posted in so long.  I’m not entirely sure that break is over, but I had to come back and do a post featuring my newest favorite photography gadget:  The PoseAnywhere HUD by Essential Soul Studios

When my new friend DavidThomas Scobal contacted me to tell me about his creation, I was really excited to try it out.  A HUD that lets you use your own no trans poses on someone else?  I’ve wanted something like this since I first started taking photos in SL.  And while I find it terribly ironic that it’s being released the same week I close my photo studio, I am extremely thankful for its existence.

To test it out, I took the lovely Kyria Tomsen to Bon Temps, La (the True Blood SIM) and snapped some fun photos in the graveyard.

Two to Tango

21 04 2009

And apparently it takes two tries to get this post published.  *glares at the internet*

Versatility is the key to any good wardrobe.  Having those pieces that can be worn with several different “looks” can easily double the size of your closet, be it real or virtual.  That’s probably my favorite thing about fashion: taking one item and styling it this way and that.  Of course, my SL wardrobe is considerably larger than my RL one, and I often have things in more than one color.  My virtual wardrobe is versatile beyond belief sometimes.  And sometimes, I even surprise myself with what I come up with.  Take the Madrid skirt from Leezu Baxter, for example.  I adore this skirt, and I own it in both red and this gorgeous teal and blue confection called Candy.  I’ve worn both colors recently, in very different ways.

It’s my turn to take the virtual baton in the Fashionable Relay, and I couldn’t be more excited! What better way to kick off my new blog than by participating in this fun challenge that the lovely Sasy Scarborough organized?

I grabbed the virtual baton from SarahTheRed Aurbierre over at What? Another fashion blog? who threw it to me after creating a fabulous outfit. She looked fantastic in a little edgy mix and match that I’d absolutely wear while hopping around the grid. In fact, I wanted to use several of the items she chose, but alas I am limited to one. In the end, I chose the one item she used that I already had in my inventory, The Jules skirt by Maitreya.

Express The TRUTH!

1 12 2008

I discovered TRUTH while jumping from SIM to SIM searching for ghosts over Halloween weekend. It’s an interesting store, with a vast array of items for both men and women (looks pointedly at Payten). My favorite item, though, is the Spy coat. I love it. I love everything about it; from the black color, to the shiny silver belt, to the fun zipper detail. The bottom of it moves beautifully as you walk and it definitely screams “Spy”.
