Planning Her Escape

Pose Fair 2017 has opened today and this is the opportunity every photographer should be taking to find the poses that make every picture shine. This event showcases not only the known posemakers in Second Life, but is a chance to discover some exceedingly talented newcomers – or new-to-you creators.

Every year I seem to find at least one posemaker I wasn’t familiar with, and that holds true for this year, as well. Artis is a brand I hadn’t heard of before, but Tamara Artis creates beautifully natural yet seductive poses. One of her Pose Fair Exclusives is “Caged.” While the concept of using a cage for poses isn’t new, what I love about this set is the feeling that each pose brings of a caged animal, resigned to being imprisoned, yet the hope of release is apparent. You just know that if the door is opened the creature will quickly flee her captivity. Lovely poses, and while I didn’t use it myself, Tamara provides a shape that is designed to work best with the pose prop. I noticed this in some of her other work, so I will definitely try one out.

The angle I shot from also helps to highlight the beautiful Rita sandals from at the current round of Collabor88. I really loved this round, as can be seen from the credits, and these shoes come in a very springy pallete that will work well through the next two seasons. They are very pretty and delicate, yet have enough of a heel to act as a weapon, if needed, during her daring escape.

Hair Fair 2016 is entering its second week. While the sims are still busy, it is now possible to get in directly. Do check out the styles from tram if you are looking for short, flirty styles. I picked up two, but there are at least five choices.

I still haven’t sent Chance yet, but I will before the event ends. After all, it may be a Gentlemen’s Club, but the lady rules.

Hot Tramp

1 Hot Tramp sm

Virtually every “good girl” has a little bit of a “hot tramp” inside her. This one is no exception.

The Hot Tramp neon sign was a Fifty Linden Friday gem from junk. It may still be available, although I don’t know for sure or if it is still at this bargain price. The same goes for the chair from Soy. Both are must haves in my book.

While some events are just kicking off, like Uber, Skin Fair and The Liaison Collaborative are nearing their close. While TLC will have a new round coming up soon (April 7th, to be exact), Skin Fair will be closing on March 27th for the year. Be sure to get to both of these events before the time runs out. My bodysuit is available at TLC and my skin and makeup can be found at Skin Fair. Check the credits for the details.
