Good For What Ails You

1 Frozen Flowers sm

There is very little in this world that can’t be cured by an ice cream cone filled with flowers. The rest can be cured by it saying “I love you.”

These pretty posy pose props/accessories from Ariskea will be available at the new round of The Liaison Collaborative February 7 – 28, 2016. There are a variety of colours and messages on the cards to choose from. You will even smile as you smell the flowers.

Go ahead and pick up a few. They’re good for what ails you.

The Watcher

1 The Watcher sm

Gulp.

Yes, I realise this photo is a bit more risque than I normally publish on my blog, but I really wanted to find a way to showcase this harness from Salt & Pepper for the upcoming round of ROMP. It is very delicate and pretty and if you are the harness-wearing type, you really must have it.

This isn’t the shot I originally intended. It started out as just me, the rug and the tree. However, after some very careful pose editing and creative camera angling to cover my bits, I realised I needed to move the rug. Unfortunately, when I attempted to do that, it moved me (silly woman! I should have used my LUMIPro pose stand before editing my pose!). That meant I had to bring in Chance to move stuff for me. But once I had the rug and tree in the right location, I noticed I had a lot of negative space in the left side of the photo. I still had the Apple Fall wall on my platform from my shoot yesterday, so I had him drag it over to fill the space. That’s when I decided to stick him in the doorway and include him in the photo. I did a bit more editing of my head position (throwing it back), tossed on my LeLutka head, closed my eyes, opened my mouth and I transformed what was originally a rather PG photo into the R-rated version you see here.

I think having a male alt brings out the voyeuristic side of me.

Gulp. Again.

Starting The New Year With A Bang

1 New Beginnings sm

OK, so maybe the “bang” happened several months ago…

Actually, it began over a year ago for Apple May’s update of the Baby Bump. Version 2.0 has several upgrades:

– New hud controlled belly progression with FOUR stages
– Omega compatibility
– Skin appliers included + Skin Tinter
– Easy to use hud for hiding/showing different clothing layers
– Now provides 4 layers: skin, under garments, tattoo, and clothes.
– Easy to use hud controlled layers with on/off buttons as well as blend or mask alpha options
– Previous appliers DO work on your updated belly!

I have to say that while skin matching has never been a strength of mine, I was able to very closely match my PXL Natural skin using the HUD. I actually didn’t have to do much blending in Photoshop for this photo. I don’t have any appliers for the product, so I can’t personally vouch for how those work, but I have never had problems with appliers for any other product, so I wouldn’t anticipate any issues with these. The HUD is simple to use and it can be minimised on your screen, out of the way when you are not editing.

While this isn’t a product I would buy for myself (not planning any SL pregnancies), but for those of you who are looking for new beginnings, it is a well-crafted product with loads of capability. If you already own one and are expecting another bundle of joy, you can receive the update. If you did not receive your update just visit the redelivery tab on the information board in store to have it redelivered. If your purchase was prior to February 2014 please contact Italia Villota to verify your purchase.
