With all of the photoshopping and windlighting and fancy things we bloggers do to pictures, it’s easy to forget that this isn’t the usual SL’ers experience. Some people come onto the grid and don’t even know HOW to change the lights. Personally, I remember someone teaching me how to make the sun come back as being a brilliant day. I got lamps for my SL house just FOR WHEN IT WAS DARK. I literally didn’t know what else to do.
So when I walked outside into the park near my house, in default lighting, I had this moment of realizing WOW that’s what this just looks like, without anything fancy, with nothing taxing the old graphics card – my setting was HIGH not ultra, and just the default region windlight.
It’s a testament to the quality of what I’m wearing I think, that everything skin, dress, hair etc doesn’t NEED a quick PS touch up to look pretty. If you buy these things, this is what you’re getting, without fail. No worry that I’ve changed the colors or the shape with little tweaks here or there to hide imperfections.
I think that’s great.
Another thing I’m here to share today is two of my favorite new things. The HUDS that make me beautiful.
In this photo I DID tweak the windlight to GOGO’S JuicyLovesYou or it might’ve been Gogo Hearts SL I forget. The reason for that was because of the darkness in the day by the time I got to this shot – the colors on the nails didn’t show up very well. I tried to pick a windlight that simply lit up the sky rather than provided a lot of filtered color also. I’m wearing the pink peach tone of nails – from FLAIR for your SLINK nails. You just put on your slink nails – add the FLAIR HUD and touch – and your nails change to your color. Flair has now released so many colors of nails you’ll be hard pressed to ever wear any other I swear. It’s brilliant.
I’m also trying out the new EXILE HUD that Gogo has talked about too. It’s just brilliant, my favorite part are the little dots of color on each tone – that you can use to add highlights. I chose the orange one to compliment the peach dress I was wearing – and you can see it’s subtle but beautiful. I am wearing SHIMMER but I really liked the SNOW QUEEN version of the light blonde tones. As always EXILE has proven again why their blondes always make my short list of awesome.
That’s it for me today. Happy Wednesday my lovelies!
