In The Wake Of Her Destruction

She doesn’t care if she wreaks havoc wherever she goes. She is strong, confident and takes no prisoners. She is dressed for destruction; primed to take no prisoners.

The dress is the main weapon, showing off legs for days plus plenty of dangerous curves. You can find the Tracy Dress from ChicModa at the current round of Cosmopolitan through April 22. The dress comes in multiple solid colours, with several patterns as part of a fatpack exclusive. Hurry; you only have a week to grab this stunner!

The pose and scene are from Exposeur. While RubyStarlight Writer closed her in-world store a while back, she still has a Marketplace presence for a lot of her classic poses and props. You can find her Pose Fair 2017 exclusives at the main landing point, but she has two other booths at the fair, giving you a chance to try out many of her older props. There may even be another new one; I didn’t remember it and of course, had to buy it. I’ll try to feature it before the fair has ended.

I did a lot of damage at Pose Fair, leaving a trail of Lindens in the wake of my destruction. It’s going to be a lean week until payday rolls around!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Plucking petals is a perplexing way to determine a passionate dalliance. But perhaps it is as scientific as any other type of chemistry.

I am having fun with the poses from Pose Fair 2017. To stage this scene, I combined two poses: the base pose is part of the Angel seat from Artis and the hand and face position is created by adding one of the Bento poses from [addme.]. I am loving the ability to customise poses that Bento has brought to the grid. It is the difference between having a good shot become a perfect one.

I missed last month’s Luxe Box, so I made sure to get in early for April, and I wasn’t disappointed. I adore this ponytail from Moon. Hair. and the jumpsuit from ISON is typically sublime. While you can see little of the skybox from hive in the photo, it is one of my favourites from this subscription box. Don’t be surprised if you see it featured again.

*plucks another petal and stops…was that a “He loves me” or a “He loves me not?”

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 fri.day 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.
