Pose Me Pretty: GLITTERATI

1 Pose Me Pretty Glitterati sm

For the longest time, I have been trying to come up with a theme I can use as the basis for a weekly post. Think Strawberry Singh’s Monday Memes or Wendz Tempest’s Sunday Sevensies . But I couldn’t think of anything that I thought would be compelling enough for me to continue on a regular basis.

Then, a couple of weeks ago, I found myself in possession of a pose from !bang and I struggled to make it fit in with the other things I was blogging. So I went at it from the opposite direction: I styled my photo around the pose. I talked about it in my post, and it really is one of my favourite photographs.

The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea of doing a weekly post wherein the pose is the star. Whether it is an animation in furniture or a dance ball, a static pose or even an AO, the pose is the backbone of any Second Life photo that contains an avatar. And posemakers don’t get enough credit, in my opinion.

That is the genesis of my weekly prompt, Pose Me Pretty. I will style my photograph around the pose and share it here.

This week, I am featuring a pose prop that is no longer available for purchase, but has long been one of my favourites. It is from the Draped series by Katey Coppola of GLITTERATI. GLITTERATI was one of my original favourite pose stores and is now, sadly, only available on the Marketplace. Not sad because it is only on MP, but because Katey is no longer actively creating poses and I own virtually everything she has made!

Each piece in this set has a pose contained in a wispy piece of fabric. They are elegant and feminine and show the staying power of a well-made pose. It is a piece worthy of its own post, in my humble opinion, and I am pleased to present it as the first in what I hope to make a long-standing event.

I hope you come back to check it out as I continue this little adventure. I have even set up a separate category, so you can easily find them.

Dedicated to the wonderful posemakers in Second Life. Thank you, one and all.
