The fierce protector

“There is a look that can melt a woman’s heart from across a crowded room that tells other men, “She’s under my protection…” ~ Graham R. White

Mine 004

It’s not very common for me to wear coats in this fashion in real life as we just don’t have that kind of weather for it.  Casual is the norm and even in the winter, which if you know the southern part of the state of Florida, it’s mildly less hot than at other times of the year.   It’s why dressing up in Second Life has its perks.  Alright. We just like playing dress up.

The rigged mesh coat is from MoDANNA and is currently available at Fashion Fair that runs only until the 15th of October.  There are 8 colors to choose from and it’s reasonably priced at $179 lindens.

The other thing that I want to share is that Apple Fall still has some fantastic discounted items at the main store.  The chairs in the background and the building are both $0 lindens currently at the store.  You really can’t beat that price!

Airing out the d…y laundry.

Snowday Laundry2

Again, just recently two of my pictures were selected for the photo cover of two Flickr groups that I post my pictures in.  The first group was SL Home & Decor and they selected one of my New Year’s Eve pictures in which I blogged product for Aphrodite. The other group was [CIRCA] and they selected my Christmas post on their products I blogged during the holiday.   As of this posting they are still up, though possibly just a click away before being replaced with another photo.
Those are the unexpected little treats that have made my time doing photography in Second Life a nice and worthwhile experience.   Thank you to those groups and for everyone that takes the time to favor one of my pictures on Flickr.  It is always interesting to see the pictures that get the most hits, because it’s usually the ones I spend the least amount of time on or not my own personal favorites.
As an outlet to relax and have fun I just let myself go with the moment.  There are some days I’m just more inspired than other days and a scene gets developed without any planning or thoughts beforehand.  I call it a success if I’m really lucky and my mind isn’t suffering short term memory loss that day and I’m able to recall items that I have in my inventory to be able to use.  Then I can use my Flickr for inventory control.
Sorry, there was no airing out of dirty laundry… that solitary d really stood for daily.
Enjoy your Wednesday! 🙂

Living it up…

003 Aria

I earnestly tried to get into two events that began today.  No luck.   Though I’m still lucky, because I get to show some goodies from Aria that were released for this round of Collabor88.  The Lydia living room sets consists of these sofas, coffee table and all the decor items on the table.

007 Aria

What I continue to love about Aria is the choices you get for textures on most of the items.  I choose to go with white upholstery and white/black cushions for my decoration.   The sofas come in two versions — PG and adult and come with many animations as well as the choice to change texture. The sofas can also sit up to three avatars.  Everything except the books allows you to change texture. It’s great to get the ability to fit the room to your style and personal taste.

Shattered

Snapshot_0012

I found this shattered man statue at an animated texture shop.  It seemed like it would make a great decor item for the house, even if the space I have him in now is a bit tight for his outstretched arms. I’m breaking in the new mini furniture set that Aria released for this month’s FaMESHed event that consists of the sofa, table and vase with poppies.  I love the details on the sofa and kept going between the three colors and finally settled on this grey.  I must say that I really like when you can buy an item that gives you choices in the wood and fabric textures.  Personally, I am more inclined to spend lindens on an item like this for a set price than for an item with one color choice for the same price.  I also really like that some designers are allowing you to buy items individually.   I don’t always want the whole set, but would love to have a particular accessory that comes with the set.

Snapshot_0032

This cool jacket that I’m wearing is a group gift from .Shi.  It comes with a HUD to change the jacket color and comes with a fabric necklace.  The necklace took me a little time to fit almost right, but the hair covered the bit of imperfection, which is the necklace going through the jacket.  I believe this will vary by avatar and mine is a little bigger than normal.
