Pose Me Pretty: !bang

! !bang Pose Me Pretty

I’m back again this week to showcase another of my favourite posemakers. !bang is another longtime fave of mine and I am honoured to be an official blogger for this store. Luna Jubilee makes such feminine female stands that they are always among my go-to poses. While there are lots of great stand and sit posemakers in Second Life, Luna’s are always so natural that taking a photograph using them is like capturing a snapshot, rather than a posed shot.

The pose I am featuring here is a new release for We < 3 Roleplay this month. Notice the stance, the slightly-cocked knee and the perfect placement of the fingertips. So realistic, as if she has just paused on her trip through the forest.

Luna also makes great couples poses, ranging from friends to lovers. She has some *ahem* racy couples poses available at this month’s round of Romp and a female-female pose available at Cosmopolitan. But just because a pose is designed for specific genders, don’t let that stop you if you want to use them with a different pairing. I had intended to use a photo of the female-female pose with Chance and myself, but sadly, my computer wasn’t co-operating and kept crashing when I clicked the shutter. You’ll have to trust me on this, but with a bit of adjustment, you can often mix things up to suit your situation. You can even try it out in the store before making the purchase since !bang couple poses are in an adjustable box, rather than poseballs (for which you have to have edit rights and a hell of a lot of patience!)

Go on. Visit Luna’s store. You’ll get !bang for your buck and !bang-on poses.

Pretty Things On A Dreary Day

1 Pretty Things On A Dreary Day

The weather has been rather dreary the past few days; overcast and cloudy without the benefit of much rain. After an especially rough week at work, it has matched my mood.

So what is the best remedy? Surrounding myself with pretty things on a dreary day. Shiny Shabby has opened and you know that is an event that is near to my heart. While I do love shiny things, you know I’m the one who swivels my neck for something shabby. Team that with quite a few things from Apple Fall and it’s like sunshine on a spring day for me.

I admit that only my pocketbook limited my purchases at Shiny Shabby. But it is open until March 15th, so I’ll have a payday before it closes.

I’ll be back to pick up more shiny shabby goodness to perk me up when another dreary day rolls around.
