Sasy Scarborough who organized My Attic at The Deck invited me over for a peek about 30 minutes before the event opened and pointed to this dress and said, “You will like this, look at the shoulders.” Well, I finally got back to go buy it the other day and here I am wearing it with only a few hours before it closes. The dress is sleek and stylish and it does have beautifully shaped shoulders with silver studs. I don’t know why, but it got me hauling out the breastplate and other pieces of the Hydra set from Rozoregalia to push it from the Pop theme to a more hard edged Rock and Roll feel.

While The Great SL Photo Hunt hurtles along, there happens to be another photo challenge that should be fun and interesting as well. Harlow Heslop has challenged folks to post raw, unedited shots. Since most of the time, all I do is crop photos, it was a relatively easy challenge. I had to refresh a few times to line shots up correctly within the frame I set the window, but other than that, it was mainly choosing a good windlight setting (Strawberry Singh’s Diamond) and policing my prims to make sure they looked good in the poses. Since I can upload directly from within SL into Flickr, it really was easy.
My next guest stylist on It’s Only Fashion is DJ Anubis Darkwatch who apparently owns every song ever meant to be streamed in SL. Event after event after event you’ll see his name popping up as a featured DJ. Dubstep? 80s Night? Disco? DISNEY Dubstep? Retro industrial metal as covered by the Pixies in a basement in Prague? No matter, Anubis is spinning and socializing. Continue reading →
Since Gidge brought up The Sound of Music, my mind went straight to Edelweiss when I looked at the pictures from last night’s shoot.
Edelweiss, Edelweiss Every morning you greet me Small and white clean and bright You look happy to meet me Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow Bloom and grow forever Edelweiss,Edelweiss Bless my homeland forever
I shot these photos at the blanc part of the noir et blanc installations at World’s End. It’s such a beautiful sim and very uncluttered so it struck me as a good spot to make a short video tutorial on using the Zoom keys to change your cameral “lens” in Second Life. Most of the time we zoom by pressing down the option or alt key and ten using arrows, view or the mouse to move our camera about and to zoom in. That’s great, but it makes for very distorted close-ups. This little video will show you how the zoom controls work and contrast proper and improper methods of zoom.
Modern Gypsy’s Cerulean Mist dress is a dancing nebula of color – so I had to go to the nebula dance floor at Little Kasiopaya to take my pictures. The blend of blue, purple and silver is a cerulean celestial delight. Continue reading →
