On Being A Sow’s Ear

1 Maitreya Vintage Lace Romantic

I’m taking a break from working on some photos I did for friends a couple of days ago. I made a mistake using a couple’s pose I never should have used, so I’m kicking myself for not checking it closer while I was shooting. The result was two hours of agony as I tried to make a purse out of a sow’s ear. Fortunately, I used more than one pose so I can finish those and not feel so bad.

Speaking of making a purse out of a sow’s ear…I thought I would show off this lovely dress from Maitreya, available at this round of Collabor88. It’s everything feminine and delicate that I love, but tend to avoid. I usually feel like an impostor when I dress up like a lady. Girly, yes…but this is the stuff I usually only see myself wearing in my dreams.

Break time is over. Back to Photoshop with me. Oh, and that sow’s ear I referenced is me…not the dress!

    You are always a lady in my eyes Peep. Love you dear friend. Hey, maybe when we are older we can be a couple of those purple hat ladies. 😉 ♡

      lol of course you may! And I think looking horrible – and not caring – is kind of the point 😉

    Love the shadow work Peeps, you will have to give a tutorial on that.. because I still can’t quite figure out how to get those right.

      My shadows are from my Windlight settings – I never add them afterwards. I really only ever change the east angle on presets. I use Berry’s and Jackson Redstar’s settings most often. lol there’s my tutorial 😉

Talk to me! (please? )
