Coming Up For Air

1 Coming up for air sm

I love this picture.

I was playing around on the edge of my land and hit the slope into the water. As I stood there, trying to find some props for a completely different shot, my avatar began slipping downward into the depths of the Linden Sea. With my head stuffed in my inventory, I wasn’t quite sure where I had gone! I cammed around to find myself and stumbled upon this awesome angle through the water. I quickly saved my camera view and tried out various poses until I found the one I needed. Then the fun began: Windlight settings! The cloud coverage became my ripples, the stars became the basis of the bubbles, and the lighting became the deep blue-green of the ocean.

I ended up merging two shots to create this one, but other than a few extra bubbles, this is what I was seeing through my camera lens.

All of this was to highlight the amazing ruffled bikini by Valentina E. for Summerfest ’16. Go forth and shop. But don’t forget to come up for air.

Little Friend

1 Little Friend sm

L2 Studio has released another new home – The Alameda Street House. Since it is a L2 Studio home, I had to have it – even if it is too big for me. I’ll still use it for interior shots in my blogging, as I did in a recent post.

Why am I talking about this if I’m not actually blogging it today? That is my roundabout way of letting you know about the location for this photo.

I wanted something whimsical to showcase my outfit, and didn’t have the time, materials or inclination to create something of my own. Whispering Wind, home of L2 Studio, is a beautiful sim created by Lindini2 Lane, the creative genius behind these lovely houses. Since I had just wandered the sim while checking out the house, I knew there were lots of photogenic spots I could use for my purposes.

This stately gentleman was kind enough to pose with me. He actually seems to be admiring my boots from, don’t you think?

Night Fall

1 Night Fall sm

Night will be falling soon on a couple of events – My Attic and The Arcade. Both will fade away when September ends. There are lots of bargains at My Attic – nothing is over 95L. The pose I am using from Ma Vie is part of a set you can nab for this bargain price. And the hair from -Tableau Vivant- is only a spin away at The Arcade.

While my dress is a new release at the Apple May Designs mainstore, you can pick up the red version for the princely sum of 25L for this week. You have plenty of time to get to Uber for the shoes I am wearing from, but why wait? I visited today and the crowds are manageable and the new still hasn’t worn off of these heels.

Don’t get caught napping – there will be plenty of time to sleep when night falls.
