Every fashion blogger in Second Life has one thing they use in every post – a pose. But rarely are the poses the centerpiece of the photo. In fact, a lot of bloggers don’t even credit the pose or posemaker. I have never understood that – they are willing to credit every other thing in their photographs, but not the pose that shows it off.
Since I began doing credits for my blog I have always included the pose, whether it is still available or not. I have a huge respect for pose makers and I believe they should get the same attention as the dressmakers, hair stylists and jewelers. So, today, E is for Eternal Dream Poses, one of my favourite pose stores in Second Life.
Eternal Dream Poses may not be as well known as some of the others, but Fata Boa makes very natural poses – something that I value. Yes, some pictures scream for more drama, but for the most part, if the outfit is the hero of the photo, a natural pose is my choice. She also creates fun pose props, such as the little birdie shown here. He can change his plumage to compliment your composition – even he is a fashion maven! Or is that raven? 😉
I have been lucky enough to have been chosen for early entry (more E’s!) to this year’s Pose Fair, largely because I am a blogger who does always credit poses. I am hoping to have a few more to feature during the alphabet challenge. If they don’t fit the day’s letter, I will still be showing them off. Just keep an eye on my credits 🙂
