So I went looking for a lovely place to shoot and found Misali – a gorgeous water sim with small islands that hold lovely little set pieces perfect for the SL photographer. Since I was wearing the purple and sapphire dress and jacket outfit from Baiastice I decided to use the lovely Purple Moonlight windlight setting from Elysium Elide. I love the dress and the jacket and like them together, though this does highlight one of the reasons I have not become a 100% supporter of mesh. I would love to have them as separate pieces, but unlike system clothing, mesh separates can be difficult to fit together. Some strategies I have used to make mesh separates work is to wear a M under and an L on top, though that does not always work. That’s why designers like Baiastice’ Sissy Pessoa make the outfits in one unified mesh instead of separates. It makes them work together perfectly, adjusting to your poses and preventing all intersections, but it does reduce our opportunity to make individualist styling choices.
Or maybe we just have to dig a little deeper to come up with new ways to add our own quirks and options. Here, I added the collar and sleeve fur pieces from a Bliss Couture jacket. I decided to tie the jacket more directly to the dress, adding the accents in the sapphire color of the dress.
I added gorgeous purple python pumps from Leverocci though they don’t show that well in this picture. What you do see is the fabulous print and draping on the dress.
My hair was styled by Truth and the jewelry is from Kunglers. The set is called Pitanga is a striking modern set with stunning color combinations.
The skin is the gorgeous new release from PXL Creations called Kate with tattoo layer lipstick and eyeshado.
Be sure to check out Misali and don’t forget to drop the sim designer a tip as a thank you and to help offset the cost of the sim. No, your 50L won’t pay the tier, but if everyone who enjoys a sim drops 10 to 50 L for the sim owner, we would not be losing so many lovely sims. We have lot Mother Road recently which is just heartbreaking and the list of lost sims grows and grows. We can stop that attrition if we show our appreciation to the sim creators with a small tip.
