Inside The Rabbit Hole

It’s all Home & Garden today; loads of pretty stuff from The Liaison Collaborative, plus a starring role by the lovely lamps from [ keke ] I showed the other day. While I love H&G, I do struggle with getting the right amount of clutter balanced with realism (or at least my version of realism). I tend to place things around the edges, leaving the centre bare. Which leads to me adding more things and moving stuff around until I barely recognise what I started out with. I do admire the work of dedicated H&G photographers; the credits alone make them worth their weight in gold!

This was supposed to be a completely different photo; I had to totally rework the credits after I finished processing and cropping. But sometimes the best intentions just go down the rabbit hole.

Curtain Call

I may be getting ahead of things, since Skin Fair 2017 has just begun, but all of the designers will be deserving of multiple curtain calls once the event closes on March 26th. They have truly outdone themselves, with stunning skins, tattoos, makeup appliers and mesh head releases. After the cut, I’ll give you more information to prepare you for one of the biggest events of the Second Life year, including sim maps and SLurls to the fair.

Before I do that, I wanted to make sure that some other releases weren’t lost in the shuffle of Skin Fair. Collabor88 is spectacular this month, with warm and wonderful designs from the top creators in SL. I could live in these leg warmers from at the event. With autumn upon us in Australia and winter looming, they will surely become a staple in my wardrobe.

The Liaison Collaborative is up and running with their 4th birthday round. There are some beautiful home and garden items in this round and many of the designers have put out birthday gifts – yours for the taking. Do make sure you visit.

Jump past the cut for a close up of my skin, the promised details on Skin Fair and the ever popular credits!
